‘American Horror Story: Cult’ Review: This Trump-Era Nightmare Might Be the Worst ‘AHS’ Season Yet

The fear factor of the past six seasons of American Horror Story has been predicated on a variety otherworldly scares. Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk have spooked us with ghost stories, aliens, witches, vampires, clowns, and beyond. Part of the uniqueness of the anthology series, and why watching a show as sadistic and gruesome as AHS can be so fun and addictive, is the gap between us and what happens on screen. Who doesn’t love hearing a good ghost story, so long it’s not happening to them? But in its seventh year, American Horror Story pivots from fables of supernatural nightmares to satirize the real-world political fears of Trump’s America, and it’s the series’ biggest mistake yet.

Cate Blanchett Will Play a Witch for Eli Roth in ‘The House With a Clock In Its Walls’

Cate Blanchett is in a phase of her career I would describe as… interesting. She is clearly unafraid of ambitious projects – Knight of Cups, Song to Song – experimental ones – playing 13 characters in Manifesto – and as one may say, rather off-brand though totally exciting ones, like playing a Marvel villain for Taika Waititi. But her most head-turning choice of late is a role in an Eli Roth film.

What Was That Sansa Letter All About in ‘Game of Thrones’ ‘Eastwatch’ and What Does It Mean?

Sunday night’s Game of Thrones had hours of essential information, major narrative developments and character reunions all packed into one swift episode. We could spend forever analyzing – spoiler alert – Cersei’s pregnancy reveal, how long Gendry will stick around, and what Gilly’s major Rhaegar Targaryen bomb drop reveals about Jon’s threat to Daenerys’ right to the throne. But one of the more unexpected and interesting developments in “Eastwatch“ was the raven Arya discovered in Littlefinger’s room. What did it say? Is Littlefinger tricking Arya? And what does that mean for the two Stark sisters?

‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8 Scripts Are Complete, but How Long Are the Episodes?

It’s hard to believe we’re nearly halfway through the penultimate season of Game of Thrones. We’ve got four episodes left of Season 7 before we plunge into the finale six of Season 8. We may be getting less episodes – or, as former grammar Nazi Stannis would say, fewer – compared to previous seasons, but on the upside, they’ll also be extra long.

‘Girls Trip’ Review: The Filthiest and Funniest Comedy of the Summer

Four women, one weekend, a lot of alcohol, and more dick jokes than you can count. It’s the perfect recipe for a raunchy comedy, and makes Girls Trip the funniest, filthiest, and most feminist comedy of the summer. It’s the latest in a growing subgenre of R-rated female-led comedies, making it impossible to avoid comparisons to Bridesmaids, Trainwreck, Bad Moms, and Rough Night. But Girls Trip isn’t just notable for its foul-mouthed sense of humor; you can see women being nasty on any episode of Broad City. The latest from director Malcolm D. Lee (The Best Man Holiday), tells a story that celebrates black sisterhood, female sexuality and most rewardingly, self-respect.

Tim Burton’s Live-Action ‘Dumbo’ Confirms Lead Cast, Plus Release Date Announcement

We’ve heard rumors about the cast for a while now, from Colin Farrell to Danny DeVito and Michael Keaton, and they’re all true! The casting news, along with some plot details and an official release date was announced today during Disney’s live-action panel at the D23 Expo.

Don’t Ask ‘Shameless’ Star Elliot Fletcher About His Backstory

If you look back on the history of transgender characters in film and TV, you’ll find few depictions of trans men. Besides Hillary Swank in Boys Don’t Cry, there was Daniela Sea’s Max on The L Word, Glenn Close and Janet McTeer in Albert Nobbs, and a few minor TV roles here and there. The one thing all those roles have in common? They weren’t played by trans actors. But Elliot Fletcher is swiftly changing that and paving the way for a better future on the small screen.
