The X-Files Season 11 Episode 2 Review – ‘This’

Matt Rodgers reviews the second episode of The X-Files season 11…

After last week’s polarising season premiere of The X-Files, an episode that while clunky, was at the higher end of the Chris Carter installment spectrum, Mulder and Scully are well and truly back to their best in this Glen Morgan written and directed hour-long.

Known for penning some of the classic monster-of-the-week episodes of The X-Files, notably season 1’s ‘Squeeze’ and ‘Tooms’, as well as one of the better season 10 offerings, ‘Home Again’, Morgan puts away his penchant for the creature-feature with ‘This’, an episode that veers from home-invasion, to Sherlock Holmes, right through to social commentary on technology privacy laws, all permeated by some never-better chemistry from Anderson and Duchovny.

Straight away viewers may be perturbed by the shift in tone away from that divisive Cigarette Smoking Man twist, as we’re presented with Mulder and Scully asleep

12 Worst Movies of 2017, From ‘The Emoji Movie’ to ‘Baywatch’ (Photos)
How great was 2017 for movies? Adam Sandler starred in a movie that made it to my Best List. How lousy was 2017 for movies? I had to cram a dozen titles into a 10 Worst roster. 10. “War Machine”: This would-be satire presumably had something to say about the hot mess that is the War on Terror, but between Brad Pitt’s never-not-pulling-a-face performance and the screenplay’s heavy-handed and excessively-narrated attempts at political insight, the results were an unfunny mess that wasted a stellar cast. 9. “Home Again”: Reese Witherspoon was the queen of the small screen this year with “Big.

The Power of Reese Compels You in "Home Again"

Home Again is out on DVD and Blu-Ray. Here's Spencer Coile... 

Home Again is not a particularly good movie. The film debut of Nancy Meyers' daughter, Hallie Meyers-Shyer, follows Reese Witherspoon as she deals with motherhood, a recent separation... and the three young filmmakers she agrees to let stay with her for an extended period of time. Standard fare, right? And it is, despite that third curve. The writing is a little too on-the-nose, characters do not feel fully fleshed out, and the editing implies serious cuts were made. Still, though, it is hard not to be won over due heavily to Witherspoon herself...

Redbox Launches Digital Movie and TV Service, Without Disney Titles

Redbox is finally opening a bridge to an online digital-entertainment future, years after the streaming-video revolution took off.

The company, known for its nationwide network of DVD-rental kiosks, publicly launched Redbox On Demand on Wednesday, a service stocked with more than 6,000 movie and TV show titles available for VOD rental or electronic sell-through.

Redbox has inked deals for the service with Warner Bros., Paramount Pictures, Lionsgate, Sony Pictures Entertainment, 20th Century Fox and Universal Pictures.

Disney is the notable exception. The Mouse House hasn’t had a direct deal with Redbox for DVDs since 2012, and it is now suing Redbox, seeking to stop it from selling digital codes (extracted from DVD combo packs) for downloading or streaming Disney movies. Redbox has said in response that it’s “confident in our pro-consumer position.” Meanwhile, Disney operates a digital-locker service, Movies Anywhere, for storing and accessing content purchased from different retailers and has buy-in from other studios — but which Redbox

Disney Led the Charge in November as 2017 Looks to Close Strong

Disney Led the Charge in November as 2017 Looks to Close Strong
The year saw a lift from November box office grosses as this past month was only the third time ever November receipts totaled more than $1 billion, led by Disney and Marvel's release of Thor: Ragnarok, which delivered nearly 28% of the month's total. Heading into the November, 2017 was trailing 2016 by 5.3%, but coming out of it this year was 4.4% behind 2016 thanks to what was the third largest November ever and a 5.1% improvement over November last year. Disney led the month — after not having released a film since Cars 3 in mid-June — with two new wide releases in Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok and Pixar's Coco, both of which have been overwhelmingly successful. Ragnarok was the month's highest grossing title with $281.7 million and Coco delivered the fourth largest three- and five-day Thanksgiving weekend opening ever and generated over $82 million in its first nine days in release. Coco's total has since climbed over $135 million domestically and over $400 million globally,

Four Women Make Variety’s 10 Directors to Watch List

Lady Bird” helmer Greta Gerwig is one of the Directors to Watch: “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert”/YouTube

Variety has named its 10 Directors to Watch in 2018. The emerging filmmakers will be recognized at a brunch at the Palm Springs International Film Festival on January 3. Four women made the cut: Greta Gerwig (“Lady Bird”), Chloé Zhao (“The Rider”), Augustine Frizzell (“Never Goin’ Back”), and Claire McCarthy (“Ophelia”).

Gerwig made her solo directorial debut with “Lady Bird,” a comedy about a high school senior (Saoirse Ronan) who is desperate to get out of Sacramento and has a contentious relationship with her mother (Laurie Metcalf). The Indie Spirit Award-nominated film recently unseated “Toy Story 2” as the best-reviewed film ever. Last week Gerwig was named Best Director by the National Board of Review and The New York Film Critics Circle awarded “Lady Bird” the title of Best Film. It’s currently playing in theaters.

The Big Sick (Michael Showalter)

From start to finish, The Big Sick, directed by Michael Showalter, works as a lovingly-rendered, cinematic answer to the dinner party question: “So how did you two meet?” Based on comedian Kumail Nanjiani‘s real life (he co-wrote the screenplay with his wife Emily V. Gordon), we meet Kumail (Nanjiani) as he finishes a stand-up set in Chicago. He becomes fast friends with a

Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston’s Morning Show Drama Goes to Apple

Witherspoon in “Home Again

Huge TV news: Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston’s highly anticipated morning show drama has found a home, and it’s landed at an unexpected place. Apple snagged the as-yet untitled project with a straight-to-series two-season order, The Hollywood Reporter confirms. As expected, the star-studded series caused a bidding war.

In addition to starring, Witherspoon and Aniston will executive produce and co-own the show along with Michael Ellenberg’s Media Res company, which is producing for Apple. Twenty episodes are confirmed.

Described as “as an inside look at the lives of the people who help America wake up in the morning,” the series explores “the unique challenges faced by the women (and men) who carry out this daily televised ritual.”

While the project is based on an original idea by Ellenberg, Brian Stelter’s book “Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV” will serve as “additional background” for the show.

Witherspoon just had a super successful run on the small screen with HBO’s critically acclaimed murder-mystery “Big Little Lies.” It’s uncertain if the ratings hit will return for a second season. The Oscar winner won an Emmy for producing the adaptation of Liane Moriaty’s bestselling book, and took home an Oscar in 2006 for her role as June Carter Cash in “Walk the Line.” Aniston scored an Emmy in 2002 for playing Rachel Green in “Friends.” Witherspoon guest-starred in two episodes of the iconic sitcom in 2002 and played Rachel’s sister.

Besides “Big Little Lies,” “Wild” and “Gone Girl” are among Witherspoon’s producing credits. Aniston’s include “Cake” and “The Switch.”

Jay Carson (“House of Cards”) will serve as showrunner. He’s also exec-producing and writing the series. Directors have yet to be announced, but this female-led series needs some women at the helm.

Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston’s Morning Show Drama Goes to Apple was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Napa Valley Film Festival Rises After Fires Devastate Region

Napa Valley Film Festival Rises After Fires Devastate Region
Watching as Northern California’s wine country became engulfed by flames that scorched 220,000 acres and claimed the lives of 42 people, Napa Valley Film Festival co-founders and directors Marc and Brenda Lhormer teetered on the brink of canceling this year’s fete.

“During the first days, we only were hearing and fearing the worst,” says Marc Lhormer of unfounded rumors that partner wineries and hotels had been destroyed. “Brenda and I actually left our home and, living out of a suitcase for nine nights, kept moving things forward.”

He adds that two days after the fires erupted, the couple gathered their team. “We went around the room asking if everyone, and their families and loved ones, was Ok, and we discussed how we could help each other. Then, we had to determine if we were all mentally and physically up for putting on the show, a show everyone had worked so hard on, full time, all
