Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S4E19 "All the Madame's Men" Recap


Daisy regains her Metahuman abilities and escapes Hydra with May, and break's Ophelia's back on the way out. Her injuries lead to Fitz's promotion to be in charge of Hydra but he is ordered by Ophelia to continue working on their secret Project: Looking Glass, which upon completion will render her Framework body obsolete.

Daisy and May reconvene with S.H.I.E.L.D. where they find the team still in recovery after Mace's death. May has access to her body cam footage from the recent attack on the Enlightenment Centre. Coulson uses the footage as a means of undermining Hydra's propaganda by broadcasting it to the world. An additional side plot is that Daisy gives Ward an ounce of redemption by seeing how willing this version of him is to help them get back to their world, even if it puts himself at the risk of dying by Hydra's hand in the process.

Simmons and Triplett are working together to infiltrate a Russian oil platform, which he believes is the location of the Looking Glass in the real world. This location is where Aida is running the Framework. The platform is empty when they arrive but Simmons realises that Aida is trying to use the technology from the Darkhold to grow real human tissue so Ophelia will be able to move from the Framework into a real human body in the real world.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs on Tuesdays on ABC at 10/9c.

Documentary Mommy Dead and Dearest debuts May 15th on HBO


MOMMY DEAD AND DEAREST,
A TRUE-CRIME MURDER STORY EXPLORING ONE OF PSYCHOLOGY’S MOST
CONTROVERSIAL CONDITIONS, MUNCHAUSEN BY PROXY SYNDROME,
DEBUTS MAY 15, EXCLUSIVELY ON HBO

            On June 15, 2015, Dee Dee Blanchard was found murdered in her Springfield, Mo. home, and her wheelchair-bound daughter, Gypsy Rose Blanchard, was reported missing. But after Gypsy was tracked to Wisconsin and implicated in the murder, what started out as a grisly tale of matricide morphed into a bizarre story of deception and abuse.
            Erin Lee Carr (“Thought Crimes: The Case of the Cannibal Cop”) returns to HBO to explore another true-crime story in the age of social media in MOMMY DEAD AND DEAREST, a shocking look at one of psychology’s most controversial conditions: Munchausen by proxy syndrome. Featuring exclusive interviews with Gypsy Rose Blanchard from prison, the provocative documentary untangles a web of lies, child abuse, mental illness and forbidden love when it debuts MONDAY, MAY 15 (10:00-11:30 p.m. ET/PT).
            The film will also be available on HBO On Demand, HBO NOW, HBO GO and affiliate portals.
            Following the murder of Dee Dee Blanchard and the disappearance of Gypsy Rose Blanchard, a Facebook post stating, “That Bitch is Dead,” led investigators to Wisconsin. In the disturbing sequence of events that ensued, Gypsy was implicated in her mother’s murder and it was discovered she had been the victim of her mother’s abuse via Munchausen by proxy syndrome since early childhood. MOMMY DEAD AND DEAREST unravels this complicated tale of a mother whose deception subjected her daughter to decades of unnecessary medical treatment – until she reached her tragic breaking point.
            MOMMY DEAD AND DEAREST includes interrogation-room footage of Gypsy, her boyfriend, Nick Godejohn, and various family members, as well as intimate home videos and family photos, medical records, text messages and courtroom video. In addition to candid interviews with Gypsy from prison, the film features interviews with her father and stepmother, Rod and Kristy; Dee Dee’s father and stepmother, Claude and Laura; Dr. Bernardo Flasterstein, a pediatric neurologist who was one of the few to raise concerns about Dee Dee’s claims; Gypsy’s lawyer, Mike Stanfield; Greene County prosecutor Dan Patterson; Dr. Marc Feldman, an expert on Munchausen by proxy syndrome; and journalist Michelle Dean, who covered the story for BuzzFeed, among others.
            The Blanchards had moved to Springfield after Hurricane Katrina, and Gypsy became known there as a wheelchair-bound girl suffering from leukemia, muscular dystrophy and seizures. The community rallied around the pair, with neighbors and national organizations providing donations, housing and even trips to Disney World. But it was all a lie: Gypsy’s ailments were entirely the invention of Dee Dee, who deceived doctors, friends, neighbors, family members and even Gypsy’s father, Rod.
            At home in Louisiana with his current wife, Kristy, Rod recalls how Dee Dee said their daughter had sleep apnea at three months old, which snowballed into other disorders over the years. When Rod and Dee Dee’s families became suspicious of her claims, she moved with Gypsy to Springfield.
            From prison, Gypsy describes her mom as “unique” and “overprotective,” adding, “I really didn’t think any abuse was going on.” Dee Dee told Gypsy she had asthma, epilepsy, hearing and vision problems, and mental retardation, and convinced her she was younger than her actual age. Gypsy was on dozens of medications, which induced symptoms of illnesses she didn’t have. She also had a feeding tube that had to be periodically replaced through a painful procedure.
            “‘Mind boggling’ is the only way I can put [Dee Dee’s] ability to manipulate people,” says Gypsy’s lawyer, Mike Stanfield. One of Gypsy’s doctors suspected Munchausen by proxy syndrome, but it can be difficult to prove. After Gypsy attempted to run away – only to be tracked down by Dee Dee a few hours later – the pair was visited by police on a tip that Gypsy was being abused, but Dee Dee convinced the officers her daughter was well cared for, and later met with a lawyer to declare Gypsy mentally incompetent.
            However, Gypsy was able to carve out a secret life online, where she met Nick Godejohn on a Christian dating site. A year into their relationship, Gypsy told Godejohn about Dee Dee, and they devised a plan. According to Gypsy, she let Godejohn into the house one night, and he stabbed Dee Dee repeatedly while she hid in the bathroom.
            The couple fled to Godejohn’s family in Wisconsin, but were apprehended after Gypsy’s Facebook posts boasting about the murder. Citing mitigating circumstances, the prosecution lowered the charge to second-degree murder, and Gypsy pleaded guilty. Sentenced to ten years in prison, she will be 32 upon release. Nick Godejohn is still awaiting trial.
            The film had its world premiere in March at this year’s South by Southwest Film Festival.
            MOMMY DEAD AND DEAREST was directed and produced by Erin Lee Carr; produced by Andrew Rossi; co-producers, Alison Byrne and Andrew Coffman; editor, Andrew Coffman; director of photography, Bryan Sarkinen; music, Ian Hultquist. For HBO: senior producer, Sara Bernstein; executive producer, Sheila Nevins.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S4E18 "No Regrets" Recap


Mace and Coulson capture a Hydra vehicle to infiltrate a Hydra "Enlightenment Camp" in which an undercover agent is being held captive. Daisy is being tortured and interrogated by Fitz, who Simmons still insists on believing in. Aida offers to give Daisy Lincoln back if she surrenders the location of their bodies in the real world, so that Daisy might be able to live in peace and happiness with him in the Framework. Daisy is able to speak to Radcliffe through the vents in their cells and he tells her about another backdoor he installed to escape the Framework that Aida will not have been able to disable but in all likelihood will have guarded.

May volunteers to be injected with a super serum so she can better fight Mace, who is with Coulson freeing the uncover agent - Antoine Triplett, who is still alive in the Framework. May tracks them down there and while fighting with Mace, Coulson tries to save one of his former students from a brainwashing centre. Mace follows in to help Coulson, as the building begins to collapse due to a missile shot by Hydra. May enters the building to ensure that Mace is dead and comes across him stopping debris from crushing the student. She is also shocked and disgusted to find that the building is full of children being harmed by Hydra. Mace is able to hold up the debris long enough for the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents to get the child to safety. Mace sacrifices himself to hold the debris up long enough for everyone else to get away, though he is killed in the process.

Aida returns to the real world and finds that Mace's body there is dead too.

Shaken by her experience regarding the children, May smuggles a Terrigen crystal into Daisy's holding cell so that she activate her Inhuman abilities inside the Framework.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs on Tuesdays on ABC at 10/9c.

AMERICAN ASSASSIN - Watch the Official Teaser Trailer


The first teaser trailer for American Assassin is here and it looks amazing! Dylan O'Brien stars as Mitch Rapp, a CIA ghost, with a whole lot of trade by in his backstory. O'Brien has certainly shed his Teen Wolf sidekick image as Styles, and shows off a bit of his acting chops in this action adventure based off the 15-book Mitch Rapp series by the late author Vince Flynn.

AMERICAN ASSASSIN follows the rise of Mitch Rapp (Dylan O’Brien) a CIA black ops recruit under the instruction of Cold War veteran Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton).  The pair is then enlisted by CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy (Sanaa Lathan) to investigate a wave of apparently random attacks on both military and civilian targets.  Together the three discover a pattern in the violence leading them to a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent (Shiva Negar) to stop a mysterious operative (Taylor Kitsch) intent on starting a World War in the Middle East.

Lee Hayden (Sam Elliott) is an aging Western icon with a golden voice, but his best performances are decades behind him.

He soon strikes up an exciting, contentious relationship with stand-up comic Charlotte (Laura Prepon), and he attempts to reconnect with his estranged daughter, Lucy (Krysten Ritter), all while searching for one final role to cement his legacy.

 “A resonant depiction of a man fearlessly reckoning with his life, his image and, most importantly, his heart. Sam Elliott could not be more compelling.  It’s his best performance in a long time, and possibly ever.” – Katie Walsh, The Playlist

Into The Badlands S2E5 "Monkey Leaps Through Mist" Recap


Following the murder of Ryder, all the surviving Barons retreat to hide underground. Jade is the only remaining successor and thus is sworn in as Baron by her Regent, Merrick, and promises that Quinn will pay for what he has done.

Bajie leads Sunny to Nos, the Commandant of the Mechs (metal traders) in order to trade Silver Moon's sword for a way into the Badlands. Through this encounter, Sunny learns that Quinn is still alive.

M.K. is able to break out of the Abbotts and uses the clothes from a hanging corpse as a disguise.

Jade asks Lydia for her help to find Quinn on the condition that she will be the one to kill him.

Sunny is visited by a Doll names Portia who asks him to kill Nos so that her daughter will not have to grow up to become a prostitute too. He doesn't want to get involved, and turns down her offer for sex, which later results in Nos mutilating her face. This leads Sunny and Bajie to steal a ride and bring both Portia and Amelia with them.

The Widow disregards Waldo's advice to align with the other Barons who tried to kill her or risk losing everything she built by aligning with Quinn.

Lydia and her Clippers go after Quinn by attacking his bunker but the Clippers die from the booby trapped bunker doors. During the attack, Veil is able to escape the transit station with her son and get away from Quinn, who has been hallucinating his dead son Ryder.

Into The Badlands airs on Sundays on AMC at 10/9c.

THE HANDMAIDEN is now available on Amazon Prime Video!



Amazon Studios Original Film THE HANDMAIDEN is available on Amazon Prime Video TODAY!!

 Inspired by the novel Fingersmith by Sarah Waters



Directed by Park Chan-wook
Starring Kim Min-hee, Ha Jung-woo, Kim Tae-ri and Cho Jin-woong






THE HANDMAIDEN is Certified Fresh at 94% on Rotten Tomatoes

Watch the trailer:


From PARK Chan-wook, the celebrated director of OLDBOY, LADY VENGEANCE, THIRST and STOKER, comes a ravishing new crime drama inspired by the novel ‘FINGERSMITH’ by British author Sarah Waters. Having transposed the story to 1930s-era colonial Korea and Japan, Park presents a gripping and sensual tale of a young Japanese Lady living on a secluded estate, and a Korean woman who is hired to serve as her new handmaiden, but who is secretly involved in a conman’s plot to defraud her of her large inheritance. Powered by remarkable performances from KIM Min-hee (RIGHT NOW, WRONG THEN) as Lady Hideko, HA Jung-woo (THE CHASER) as the conman who calls himself the Count and sensational debut actress KIM Tae-ri as the maid Sookee, THE HANDMAIDEN borrows the most dynamic elements of its source material and combines it with PARK Chan-wook’s singular vision and energy to create an unforgettable viewing experience.

145 Minutes | Japanese and Korean with English Subtitles

“Expectations are fully met in Park Chan-wook’s exquisitely filmed The Handmaiden (Agassi),an amusingly kinky erotic thriller and love story that brims with delicious surprises.” 
– Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter

“’The Handmaiden’ is the Korean director Park Chan-wook’s most delectable narrative feature in years. This ornately art-directed erotic puzzler centers around two beautiful women…Over the course of the movie’s three chapters, two of which provide a revelatory, ‘Rashomon’ style shift in perspective, the women will become lovers, rivals and allies, and their teasing, mercurial role play is what gives the movie its seductive pull.” – Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

 “This film is simmering with genuine sexual tension. Exquisitely designed and sexually liberating, this is a hugely entertaining thriller.” – Benjamin Lee, The Guardian
