Second Opinion – Tolkien (2019)

Tolkien, 2019.

Directed by Dome Karukoski

Starring Nicholas Hoult, Lily Collins, Genevieve O’Reilly, Colm Meaney, Tom Glynn-Carney, Craig Roberts, Anthony Boyle, Patrick Gibson, Harry Gilby, Laura Donnelly, Derek Jacobi, Pam Ferris, Mimi Keene, Ty Tennant, Aaron Neil, Holly Dempster, Jack Riley, Nia Gwynne, and Owen Teale

Synopsis:

Tolkien explores the formative years of the orphaned author as he finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a group of fellow outcasts at school.

“You don’t deserve happiness, you deserve magic”; it’s a romantic sentiment from titular writer J.R.R. Tolkien that also doubles as what devotees of the author’s epic and sprawling body of fantasy work (Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit) deserve as a biopic of his so-called formative years. Instead, director Dome Karukoski (Tom of Finland) has crafted a dry, disjointed, and bland portrait of easily one of the most imaginative minds to ever live with Tolkien,

The first time Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán escaped from a Mexican prison, he disappeared into the mountains of his home state of Sinaloa, intent on keeping a low profile while rebuilding the Sinaloa Cartel, the drug-trafficking organization he’s accused of leading.

It took months of secret logistical planning, but in October 2015, Penn and Castillo flew to

Inside the Trial of El Chapo

Joaquin Archivaldo Guzmán Loera has always made up for his size, even if his nickname, “El Chapo,” or Shorty, is a constant reminder of his squat, 5-feet-5-inches frame.

The diminutive drug lord, 61, made a name for himself as the undisputed king of the ruthless Sinaloa Cartel. Over the years, his organization has helped shovel thousands of tons of coke, heroin, methamphetamine and marijuana into the waiting arms of American consumers. He notoriously ruled with an iron fist, and an eye for the tiniest detail.

For decades, he directed a billion-dollar enterprise,

Ray Donovan Season 4 Episodes 11 & 12 Review – ‘Chinese Algebra’ & ‘Rattus Rattus’

Mark Clark reviews the eleventh and twelfth episodes of Ray Donovan season 4…

Well, that’s it, episodes 11 and 12 are done, season 4 is over, and it’s been a marked upgrade on season 3. With its smarts, viciousness, and dark humour, I may even go as far as putting it at the top of the season pile. As for Ray and the gang, it’s been a case of small victories amidst the sucker punches, flying bullets, old wounds, new nemeses, the occasional body dumping, and Mickey almost turning every disaster into a crisis. Pretty much business as usual then.

‘Chinese Algebra’

After Abby’s recollection of Ray’s never gonna be happier moment in episode 10, and watching the opener of episode 11 as cops swarm all over the dam at Lake Hollywood and the abandoned car, and Marisol’s body, I couldn’t help asking who is responsible for, well, everything. Ever.

Newswire: R.I.P. Jack Riley, Bob Newhart patient and Rugrats dad

Multiple sources are reporting the death of comedic actor Jack Riley, known for plying his wry, Midwestern deadpan in The Bob Newhart Show, Rugrats, and a number of Mel Brooks movies. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Riley died of pneumonia after a long illness. He was 81.

Hailing from Cleveland, Riley got his start in radio before heading West in the mid-’60s, booking a recurring role on the short-lived sitcom Occasional Wife and doing guest shots on series including M*A*S*H, I Dream Of Jeannie, and The Mary Tyler Moore Show. That third series was produced by the same studio, Mtm Enterprises, that would give Riley his signature role: Touchy, narcissistic, neurotic, phobic, greedy, insecure pessimist Elliot Carlin on The Bob Newhart Show.

“Mr. Carlin”—as his psychologist, Dr. Bob Hartley (Newhart) was wont to call him—was a regular fixture at the Rimpau Medical Arts Center ...
