Springing forth from the same lineage of Katniss Everdeen, far removed from the toxically weak Bella Swan bloodline, ‘Divergent’ heroine Beatrice “Tris” Prior is well worth rooting for, even if her debut film isn’t as compelling as its leading lady. Based on Veronica Roth’s best-selling YA trilogy, Neil Burger’s film is cripplingly faithful to its source material, and although he and screenwriters Evan Daugherty and Vanessa Taylor have plenty of rich material to pull from, the film’s inability to distill it down to its most essential bits makes for a strangely bloated and often flatlining final product.
Yet, for its dragging run time – nearly two and a half hours – and its repetitive nature, ‘Divergent’ should both thrill fans and (hopefully) excite newcomers who will leave the theater wanting to know where its open ending travels next.
The timing just happens to be pretty perfect -- the world's most recognizable green superstar, Kermit the Frog, has a new movie coming out - 'Muppets Most Wanted' - the very same week that kicks off with the world's most recognizable green holiday. Sure, Kermit probably doesn't imbibe too much on the holiday like the rest of us do, but that doesn't mean that it can't prove to be beneficial to his flagging self-esteem.
Do you ever wonder what happens on late night shows during the commercial breaks? Does the host and his or her current guest sit there in silence? Do they craft a way to steer their interview once the cameras are back on them? Do they simply drink coffee from their ever-ready mugs? Turns out, if it's 'The Tonight Show' and host Jimmy Fallon is in the middle of interviewing James Franco, the two of them just end up talking about Horatio Sanz.
Human nature can be so predictable. There are plenty of things that nearly all human beings like, and 'The Tonight Show'host Jimmy Fallonmanaged to cannily cram two of those things into one little video last night on his show.
Jimmy Kimmelis still busy broadcasting his show live from Austin, Texas' SXSW Festival, and the'Jimmy Kimmel Live'host seems to be really getting into the spirit of both the city and the event in offering us an actually laugh-inducing car insurance commercial. (Eat it, GEICO!)
Everyone knows you don't mess with Texas. They have flags that tell us that. T-shirts. Bandanas. You don't mess with Texas. Well, no one told 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' favorite Cousin Sal. Or, more likely, someone did, and he decided to run with it.
'Tonight Show'host Jimmy Fallonloves a lot of things, but there are few he loves as much as inventing weird new games by putting an unexpected twist on them. Card games? Involve water. Three-legged race? Get a giant shoe. Ping-pong? Knit up a double turtleneck and shove the guest in alongside Fallon. Yup, there's a new 'Tonight Show' game, and it involves knit wear.
Jake Gyllenhaal and director Denis Villeneuve have recently set about turning their blossoming cinematic partnership into the kind of professional pairing that cranks out clever, creepy feature films that stick with their audiences long after they end. In short, these two like to make skin-crawling films that freak people out, and it turns out they’re pretty good at it.
Villeneuve and Gyllenhaal premiered both of their collaborations last year at the Toronto International Film Festival, though their bigger-budget (and bigger-named) ‘Prisoners’ hit theaters while the intriguing ‘Enemy’ bided its time before a more low-key release. While ‘Prisoners’ presented a terrifying premise that was still relatable – a pair of suburban couples are heartbroken when their young daughters go missing, and the fallout is very unexpected – ‘Enemy’ goes full throttle on a plot line that’s both bizarre and purposely hard to swallow.
Let it never be said that Jon Hammdoesn't like to have a good time. The 'Mad Men' star might be known for his hard-nosed role on the uber-dramatic AMC series, but he likes to stir up mirth in his off-time, from 'SNL' hosting and pop-in appearances to helping 'Tonight Show'hostJimmy Fallonwith some gags for his show. In keeping with the latter, Fallon and Hamm took to the Top of the Rock (on top of NBC's 30 Rock in NYC) over the weekend to photobomb innocent city gazers.
