‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2’ Review Roundup: Can it Compare to Original?

18 minutes ago

The first reviews for “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” are in and the consensus is mostly positive, although many critics deemed the outing a “sophomore slump.” While there’s a lot about “Vol. 2” that stands on its own merits, many noted that it still feels like a disappointment when comparing it to the first film released in 2014. Alonso Duralde said over on TheWrap that the film does a better job at answering questions posed from the first than presenting a unique narrative to separate it from the first. “‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2'” is more interested in filling. »

Chris Pratt Says His Recent ‘Blue-Collar America’ Remark Was ‘Pretty Stupid’

37 minutes ago

Chris Pratt is walking back a comment he made in a recent interview about Hollywood’s lack of representation for the “average, blue-collar American.” As a matter of fact, the “Parks & Recreation” alum admits it “was actually a pretty stupid thing to say.” “I don’t see personal stories that necessarily resonate with me, because they’re not my stories,” Pratt had told Men’s Fitness magazine. “I think there’s room for me to tell mine, and probably an audience that would be hungry for them. The voice of the average, blue-collar American isn’t necessarily represented in Hollywood. »

Trump Is ‘Unintelligible’ in AP Interview, Twitter Responds: ‘No Kidding’

51 minutes ago

The Associated Press released the entire transcript of its recent interview with Donald Trump on Sunday — but transcribers had a problem understanding the president, resulting in 16 “unintelligible” instances. It isn’t clear if the audio was poorly recorded, if Trump was mumbling, or if the president was simply making up new words… but this is the same man who tweeted about “General E. Watch” on Monday morning. The word “unintelligible” appears during key moments of the AP transcript, resulting in frustration that’s turned into mockery on Twitter.

John Oliver: ‘It Is Dangerous’ to Assume Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner Will Save You (Video)

1 hour ago

Many moderates are counting on Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner to save the country from the president’s personal politics — but don’t hold your breath, John Oliver warned on Sunday. Ivanka serves as an unpaid advisor to her dad, while her husband Kushner is basically tasked with every other aspect of steering our country. The enormous canyon of what we don’t actually know about the young married couple has the HBO personality quite concerned. The “Last Week Tonight” host used his platform to answer just two questions last night: 1) “Is Ivanka really the moderating influence that people claim? »

Trump Mocked for ‘General E Watch’ Tweet: ‘Presumably a Brave and Punctual Hero’

1 hour ago

Donald Trump took to Twitter on Monday morning to bash recent “fake news” polls that examined the president’s approval ratings as he approaches his 100th day in office this week. Social media responded by ripping Trump over including someone (or something) named “General E. Watch” in the message. It appears Trump was referring to the general election, but abbreviated it by writing, “General E.,” followed by, “Watch!” The bizarre style has resulted in everyone wondering who General E. Watch might be. The two fake news polls released yesterday, ABC & NBC, while containing some very positive info, were totally wrong in General E. »

All 15 Marvel Cinematic Universe Movies Ranked, From Worst to Best (Photos)

1 hour ago

Nobody on the internet wants to talk about the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but with the release of “Captain America: Civil War,” it’s a topic we just can’t go on ignoring. But seriously: even though this seemingly unstoppable franchise has rabid fans across the globe, no one can agree on which ones they like best (or least, for that matter). TheWrap’s Film Reviews Editor Alonso Duralde take his own stab at the subject — and no, he’s not getting paid by anyone at Disney to like (or dislike, for that matter) any of these films. 15. “The Incredible Hulk »

‘Morning Joe’ to Jeff Sessions: ‘You Don’t Talk About the NYPD That Way’ (Video)

1 hour ago

Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough ripped Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Monday morning for saying New York is soft on crime. The MSNBC personality thinks an apology is in order. “Has he ever been to New York City? I’m just curious,” Scarborough said. “You don’t talk about the NYPD that way… it makes me mad.” Sessions sent letters to nine jurisdictions on Friday warning each would lose federal grant money if they refused to cooperate with federal immigrations officials. It marked the latest sign that the Trump administration intends to punish what are sometimes called sanctuary cities. The other jurisdictions include Sacramento, »

‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ Review: Second Album Is All Hooks, No Deep Cuts

8 hours ago

As the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to expand, it becomes clearer that there are two kinds of films in the series: those that introduce or embellish characters and include events that have ongoing consequences within this on-screen world, and those that merely act as a bridge from one big story point to another, allowing audiences to spend time with beloved characters and to watch some mammoth, special-effects-heavy fight sequences that ultimately don’t add up to much. The first “Guardians of the Galaxy” falls firmly into the former category, while “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” fits into the latter. »

Rihanna Photoshops Queen Elizabeth II’s Head Onto Her Body (Photos)

12 hours ago

Rihanna gave Queen Elizabeth II a 91st birthday present that the royal family won’t soon forget — a look at the monarch’s face on the “Love on the Brain” singer’s 29-year-old body. The magic of PhotoShop proved to be quite funny to some and yet wildly inappropriate to others. “Total disrespect,” one Instagram user wrote, while another said, “Queen’s got some nice legs.” How about you?

‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ Broadway Review: Christian Borle to the Rescue

14 hours ago

In my nearly half century of Broadway theatergoing, I’ve never witnessed such a second-act reversal of fortune as what’s going on now at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, where “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” opened Sunday. Only in retrospective can you see glimmers of hope in the musical’s desultory first half. Just one song by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman hits the mark in this retelling of Roald Dahl’s tale of four children who win golden tickets to Willy Wonka’s long-shuttered chocolate factory. In “What Could Possibly Go Wrong?” the media-obsessed Mike Teavee (the devilishly good Michael Wartella) and his doting mother, »
