‘The Masked Singer’ spoilers: Who is the Penguin?
Are you one of those fans of “The Masked Singer” who has been losing sleep over who are the stars performing in elaborate costumes? Then keep reading as we’ve done some sleuthing and think we have uncovered the identities of the contestants on the October 9 episode, including the Penguin.

‘The Masked Singer’ episode 4 recap: Was Eagle, Flower, Fox or Penguin eliminated from Group D? [Updating Live Blog]
If you think you’ve already met all of “The Masked Singer” contestants for Season 2, you’re sadly mistaken. Wednesday’s fourth hour introduced America to the last group of costumed characters: Eagle, Flower, Fox and Penguin. These four singers faced off in two separate match-ups, with the winner of each pairing determined by the votes of the in-studio audience and judges Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong and Robin Thicke. The two lowest vote-getters then duked it out in the Smackdown, with one surviving to another day and the other being unmasked in front of America. So how’d it all play out?

Film Review: Finding One’s Self in ‘Where’d You Go, Bernadette’

Chicago – There is something so lovely about a film that unfolds slowly, until the moment occurs when a multi-layered story occurrence takes the breath away. “Where’d You Go, Bernadette” is such a film, portrayed with a magic subtlety by Cate Blanchett, one of the finest film actors working. She lives a life that is broken, but not in ways we suspect.

Rating: 4.5/5.0

The concept of genius is the theme, the type of genius that is world changing. Imagine a Steve Jobs disappearing shortly after the iPhone is introduced, and finding him years later completely outside what we know him for. This is what happens to Bernadette in the film, and the director Richard Linklater (“Boyhood”) allows it to transpire as a mystery. It takes a bit to get into gear, as Kristen Wiig distracts as a wacky neighbor, but even she comes into her own when the essence of Bernadette is revealed.

Movie Review – Where’d You Go, Bernadette (2019)

Where’d You Go, Bernadette, 2019.

Directed by Richard Linklater.

Starring Cate Blanchett, Emma Nelson, Billy Crudup, Kristen Wiig, Judy Greer, Laurence Fishburne, Troian Bellisario, Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson, James Urbaniak, Claudia Doumit, Kate Easton, Lana Young, Zoe Chao, Megan Mullally, and Steve Zahn.

Synopsis:

A loving mom becomes compelled to reconnect with her creative passions after years of sacrificing herself for her family. Her leap of faith takes her on an epic adventure that jump-starts her life and leads to her triumphant rediscovery.

It would be easy to say that the tone for Where’d You Go, Bernadette is all over the place, but its main issue stems from something much more specific, namely the performance from Cate Blanchett. Directed by the revered Richard Linklater (also serving as a co-writer adapting the likely much better novel from Maria Semple), the talented but unsuccessful architect Bernadette Fox has a cocktail of mental

‘Good Boys’ Matures to $2.1 Million at Thursday Box Office

‘Good Boys’ Matures to $2.1 Million at Thursday Box Office
Universal’s “Good Boys,” the pre-teen, R-rated comedy romp from producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, earned $2.1 million at the box office in Thursday previews from 2,600 screens.

It’s a crowded yet quiet weekend at the box office where just about anything could emerge as the top earner this weekend. “Good Boys” will be in a close race with Entertainment Studio’s “47 Meters Down: Uncaged,” the horror sequel about killer sharks.

However, Sony’s “The Angry Birds Movie 2” already opened early on Tuesday this week, and it’s made $5.7 million so far in its three days of release. Then there’s “Where’d You Go, Bernadette,” a comedic adaptation of a novel starring Cate Blanchett and from director Richard Linklater that Annapurna is releasing. And New Line has “Blinded By the Light, a British comedy and drama inspired by the music of Bruce Springsteen. All of those will

‘Where’d You Go, Bernadette’ Film Review: Cate Blanchett Stars in a Diverting But Overly Streamlined Adaptation

  • The Wrap
Fans of Maria Semple’s book-club staple have long loved the mad protagonist of “Where’d You Go, Bernadette”: a middle-aged mother who has lost her way and, quite possibly, her mind. Semple’s novel portrays this dramatic unraveling via a clever collection of modern detritus — emails, receipts, memos and interviews.

Richard Linklater’s adaptation is a much more straightforward affair, heavily reliant on star power to replace the literary stylings he and his co-writers have left behind. This approach is not an ideal match for the source material, and many may wish the book had been adapted by a filmmaker more connected to its distinctive idiosyncrasies.

But those who arrive without any preconceptions — or are willing to stray from the novel’s style — will appreciate the assets of a modestly engaging and gently touching dramedy.

‘Where’d You Go, Bernadette’ Review: Cate Blanchett Leads Richard Linklater’s Warm, Witty Portrait of Self-Discovery

A witty portrait of a deferred career, marriage, motherhood, and a missing matriarch, Maria Semple’s hit novel Where’d You Go, Bernadette unfolded in epistolary fashion, making a unique challenge for Richard Linklater and co-writers Holly Gent and Vincent Palmo Jr. Finding an engaging tone between tightly-packed eccentricities and a more grounded portrait of mental illness is difficult, but his film’s rocky introduction eventually settles into an involving tale of self-discovery and how a woman’s dreams can be sidetracked without those closest to her realizing it. As if beholden to laying the narrative cards out on the table as quickly as possible, Linklater seemingly wants to throw as much as he can into the first act before cracking open our characters to see what makes them tick, leading to a more intimate, emotionally rewarding journey.

Bernadette Fox (Cate Blanchett) lives by the beat of her own out-of-tune drum.
