Movie Review: Unfriended: Dark Web 'Predictable and generic'

Marvel’s #Inhumans Trailer

Create your destiny. Meet Marvel’s Inhumans early in IMAX theatres Sept 1, and experience the full series starting Sept 29 on ABC



Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1965, the Inhumans were an outgrowth of experimentation conducted by the alien Kree early on in the Kree-Skrull War that took place millions of years in the past. Creating a station on Uranus, the Kree discovered sentient life on Earth and, intrigued by its genetic potential, began tinkering with us. Although successful, the experiments were abandoned due to a genetic prophecy that foresaw it leading to the demise of the Kree people. The Inhumans survived.

We're introduced to the main characters here – the Royal Family of the Inhumans who live in the advanced city of Attilan, transported to the moon from the Earth to avoid discovery and the growth of pollution as humanity began its rise. Now, concerned with humans' growing reach and threat, there is division between the various family members. Powerful ruler Black Bolt (Anson Mount) – whose voice can level a city – is convinced that they have to stay out of touch, but brother Maximus (Iwan Rheon) would prefer to take Earth back and live in splendor. Caught in the middle is Medusa (Serinda Swan) and when Maximus stages a coup, Black Bolt and some of the others must flee to the planet.

While Marvel at one point had planned to launch the characters into the main movie MCU, we'll have to see how well they work in the more restrictive budget stipulations of a TV series, even one whose first two episodes will enjoy the scope, scale and screenings of IMAX. And did anyone really think that Iwan Rheon wouldn't end up being a dangerous family member? Come on, people!

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress. Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…
