Movie Week:

Nuralyze Me, Please

By Paul Hall
 
They are mysterious. They are secretive. They blend in with their surroundings. “They” are the Men in Black, and they never leave a trail of evidence that would lead people back to them — at least, not until now, in the new film Men in Black: International.

The introduction of a new film in the Men in Black franchise, launched in 1997, had me hopeful for a return to glory for the once mighty series.

In this new effort, director F. Gary Gray introduces us to the story of Molly (Tessa Thompson), who, as a child, had her first alien encounter and witnessed mysterious men in black erasing her parents’ memories. But the agents didn’t wipe Molly’s brain, and since then, she has spent every waking moment searching to prove that aliens and the Men in Black are real.

For Molly, the quest to find the elusive organization led her to apply to the FBI, the CIA and every governmental agency she knew of before finally finding MIB headquarters. Once there, she convinces Agent O (Emma Thompson), the lone carryover from Men in Black 3, to give her a chance. Training ensues, and after she passes through the program with flying colors, Molly, now known as Agent M, is sent overseas for her first mission.

In London, station chief Agent High T (Liam Neeson) partners M up with Agent H (Chris Hemsworth). The two set off to Paris on their first mission. Together, they find a fun alien accomplice named Pawny (voiced by Kumail Nanjiani), who pledges his service to Agent M, and meet a variety of other agents and crazy aliens as they try to save the world, of course — it is what the Men in Black do best.

Now that I have spent all these words telling you about the film, I need to boil down what I thought of the movie. The first 20 minutes are enjoyable. I found myself smiling and laughing and having a good time. But then came the middle of the film, and the movie transitioned from being fun and funny to slowing to a snail’s crawl. The fun felt sapped from the film.

It ended with a solid 10 minutes, but the meaty midsection of the film featured a clever hammer gag with Hemsworth, and that was about it.

It’s so disappointing for the talent that was a part of this film to be saddled with a slightly less than mediocre experience. I like Hemsworth, both Thompsons, Nanjiani, Neeson and so many others who were a part of this film. Unfortunately, I did not like the film, and that’s sad.

The soundtrack was nothing memorable, nothing that could quite measure up to the franchise. The almost total disconnect from the previous installments, other than the base facts, hurt the film.

I wanted to like Men in Black: International, I really did, but, alas, when the movie ended, I just hoped someone would come and use a neuralyzer on me to erase that last two hours.

Nik Wallenda Takes New York In "Highwire Live in Times Square"

By Kellie Freeze

On Sunday, June 23, the eyes of the nation will be on highwire master Nik Wallenda as he walks on a wire less than an inch wide above New York City’s Times Square in the two-hour ABC live event Highwire Live in Times Square With Nik Wallenda. The walk will take the seventh-generation performer from 1 Times Square, home to Manhattan’s famous New Year’s Eve ball drop, to the other end of the landmark square, approximately 1,300 feet away. But the King of the Highwire won’t be alone in his death-defying attempt: He’ll be joined by his sister Lijana, who suffered a near-fatal fall in 2017.

“I have wanted to do something in New York City for a long time. Something big,” says Nik. “My family’s first performance in the United States was in the old Madison Square Garden back in 1928.” Family is paramount to the Wallendas, and the close-knit performers, who usually eschew safety wires and nets, famously band together in moments of triumph and tragedy.

In February 2017, Nik and Lijana were practicing an eight-person pyramid on a wire over 30 feet in the air when it toppled, plunging Lijana and other family members to the ground. Luckily, no one was killed, and although Lijana was severely injured, she is ready to resume her place in the spotlight — and on the wire. “We are all about inspiration,” explains Nik, “and there will be nothing more inspiring than seeing a woman who’s had a close-to-death experience overcoming it.” A portion of the ABC special will chronicle Lijana’s arduous — and miraculous — recovery.

In addition to the physical and psychological peril of Nik and Lijana’s feat 25 stories above the pavement of New York, there will also be environmental challenges: crosswinds from the Hudson River, throngs of unpredictable crowds, car horns, sirens and the visual assault of millions of lights. Nik reveals that he and his sister are preparing for all of these challenges at the family’s Florida training compound. “Our local sheriff’s department here in Sarasota is going to send out a couple cars,” he shares. “We’re going to have their lights on underneath us, and some sirens, to create distractions. That’s what it’s about. Part of our training growing up was being distracted and staying focused during those distractions. This is bringing that to an entirely new level.”

And while the Wallendas prepare for their walk above midtown Manhattan, Nik is ever the showman and is already promoting his next perilous endeavor. He teases, “After I get off the wire on the far end of Times Square, give my sister a hug and congratulate her, I will be telling you what that is.”

Although he and his sister will be performing high above the city that never sleeps, Nik hopes that on the evening of June 23, people will take a few moments to stop and enjoy the view. “My dream is that the city will stop for the 25 minutes that we’re on the wire and sort of relax and take it all in.”

Kevin Bacon And Showtime
Explore The Boston Miracle
In "City On A Hill"

By Jeff Pfeiffer
 
Many major American cities have stories of how they’ve transformed themselves — or at least attempted transformations — from periods of economic downturn, crime and corruption into better approximations of the mythical, idyllic “city on a hill” that these metropolises may aspire to be.

In the case of Boston, a change began in 1996 with the implementation of Operation Ceasefire (informally known as the Boston Miracle). The program was aimed at policing and curtailing group-related gun violence as part of a larger-scale problem. It ultimately helped reduce youth homicide, and variations of the approach have evolved into similar programs across the country over the years.

Showtime’s compelling new 10-episode drama, City on a Hill, (beginning June 16) offers a riveting fictional account of how the Boston Miracle began to transpire. The series takes place in 1992, a time when criminals in the city were emboldened by the corruption and racism that was the norm among law enforcement. (Befitting the time period and location, brace yourself to regularly hear racial epithets casually uttered by some characters.)

Assistant District Attorney Decourcy Ward (Aldis Hodge, Underground), recently arrived from Brooklyn, finds his idealism immediately tested by the city’s circumstances. But when a family of armored car robbers from the Charlestown neighborhood, led by Frankie Ryan (Jonathan Tucker), embark on a crime wave, Ward forms an unlikely alliance with corrupt yet venerated FBI veteran Jackie Rohr (an incredible, Emmy-worthy Kevin Bacon) to take them on. As the case grows, it involves — and ultimately subverts — the entire criminal justice system of Boston.

“From the first time I read the pilot, Jackie’s voice was something that I heard,” Bacon shares. “His manner of speaking, the way that [writer] Chuck MacLean constructs dialogue in this world of ’90s, sort of cops and robbers, had a kind of gritty vibe to me that was reminiscent of the movies that I loved in the ’70s, from [Martin] Scorsese and Sidney Lumet. And I felt like there wasn’t much on television that was really in this pocket … nothing that quite felt like this.

“I don’t really feel like I’ve been Jackie before, not quite in this kind of way,” Bacon added. “[In] The Following, a lot of what that was about was a very internalized kind of character who said very, very little and had a lot of secrets. Jackie can’t shut up. I start talking from the beginning, and I keep talking all the way to the end.

“I look at these scripts, and we highlight them in yellow, and I go, ‘That’s too much yellow. That’s too much yellow for a 60?year?old guy to learn,’ and yet that’s one of the things that I love about it, because it’s this kind of verbosity that he has, which is not something that — at least in recent times — I’ve really been exploring.”

USA Network, Showtime
and Starz News

By Rick Gables

USA Network
will premiere its new drama series Pearson on Wednesday, July 17 at 10 PM ET/PT. The series centers around the world of recently disbarred NYC powerhouse lawyer Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres) as she adjusts to down and dirty Chicago politics. Newly appointed as Chicago Mayor Bobby Novak’s (Morgan Spector) right hand fixer, Jessica is quickly embroiled in a crooked and dangerous new world where every action has far-reaching consequences. With her compulsion to win, Jessica is forced to reconcile her unstoppable drive with her desire to do the right thing – two things very much at odds. Additional cast includes Bethany Joy Lenz, Simon Kassianides, Eli Goree, Isabel Arraiza and Chantel Riley.

Showtime will debut its new series The Loudest Voice on Sunday, June 30 at 10 PM ET/PT. This limited series is based on extensive reporting by Gabriel Sherman in his bestselling book The Loudest Voice in the Room, which included interviews with more than 600 people and Sherman’s reporting for New York Magazine. Even after his passing, no figure looms larger in today’s politically charged media landscape than Roger Ailes, who molded Fox News into a force that irrevocably changed the conversation about the highest levels of government. To understand the events that led to the rise of the modern Republican Party, one must understand Ailes. This series takes on that challenge. The star- studded cast includes Russell Crowe, Academy Award® nominee Naomi Watts, Golden Globe® nominee Sienna Miller, Oscar® nominee and Emmy® winner Seth MacFarlane, Screen Actors Guild Award® nominee Simon McBurney, Annabelle Wallis and Aleksa Palladino. The series aims to shed light on the psychology that drives the political process from the top down.

STARZ original series The Rook will premiere on Sunday, June 30 at 8 PM ET/PT, telling the story of a woman who wakes up in the rain beside London’s Millennium Bridge with no memory of who she is and no way to explain the dead bodies around her. Discovering she is an official in the British secret service, she needs to uncover who wiped her memory and why she is a target. Emma Greenwell, Jon Fletcher and Adrian Lester star.

Chopped Junior Premieres

By Rick Gables

The new season of Chopped Junior premieres Tuesday, June 25 at 9 PM ET/PT on the Food Network. Little chefs with tremendous ambition are taking over the Chopped Kitchen! Each episode showcases the talents of children seeking to make unforgettable meals from mystery ingredients under a ticking clock. They’ll bring their unbridled energy, big personalities and unstoppable originality, but only one can earn the Chopped Junior chef coat and a $10,000 grand prize. Special guests joining the judges’ table this season include Jessica Alba, Anthony Anderson, Nikki Bella, Kardea Brown, Clinton Kelly and Bailee Madison.

Perennial summer favorite Big Brother returns to CBS with a two-night season premiere event Tuesday, June 25 and Wednesday, June 26 from 8 to 9 PM ET/PT. The series is hosted by Julie Chen Moonves and follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with 94 HD cameras and more than 113 microphones, recording their every move 24 hours a day. Each week, someone will be voted out of the house, with the last remaining Houseguest receiving the grand prize of $500,000.

The King of the Highwire, Nik Wallenda, and his sister, Lijana, seventh-generation members of the Wallenda family circus troupe, will return to the highwire for a never-before-attempted walk of approximately 1,300 feet long and 25 stories above street level, across New York City’s iconic Times Square, when ABC airs Highwire Live in Times Square with Nik Wallenda on Sunday, June 23 from 8 to 10 PM ET. The walk marks Lijana Wallenda’s first highwire walk since the 2017 accident where she, along with four others, tragically fell 30 feet off a tightrope during a rehearsal. “In 1928, my family performed at Madison Square Garden in the City of Dreams for the first time in the USA,” said Nik Wallenda. “And on June 23, I have the great opportunity to fulfill a lifelong dream of my own by paying homage to that performance as we return for my most exhilarating feat yet. I am beyond excited to be able to walk with my sister, Lijana, as she overcomes near-death injuries and continues the Wallenda tradition of never giving up!”

WILL WE SEE ANOTHER SEASON OF THE VILLAGE ?

 Question: I love the show The Village. The writing and acting are beautifully done. Any news on the show? —Debbie C

Matt Roush: Sorry to tell you that NBC just dropped the ax on three of its underperforming midseason shows, including The Village, Abby’s and The Enemy Within. I’d bet that NBC had the highest hopes, and made the toughest call, regarding The Village, which the network no doubt saw as its next This Is Us with its emotional heart- tugging storylines. I found it a poor and obvious substitute, but others rallied to its cause. I’ll admit I was surprised at this cancellation as well. And before you ask, it’s unlikely it will be rescued, as it was an in-house production from Universal TV, and with such a large cast to service, it’s doubtful anyone would pick up that bill.

Question: Will there be a second series of What We Do In The Shadows?
I just loved that show and laughed out loud in spite of watching it by myself! Sure hope so. —Betty

Matt Roush: I was laughing right there with you, and I’m delighted to confirm that FX did renew this inspired and hilarious vampire comedy (that was adapted from the 2014 movie of the same name but with a new cast) for a second season. It’s one of my absolute favorite new shows of this year.

Cheers to The Fix
for solving its central mystery. Even though ABC canceled the Marcia Clark– produced crime drama, fans still got a solid, twist-filled finale that saw attorney Maya (Robin Tunney, pictured) finally closing her years-old murder case against celebrity suspect Sevvy (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje ).

Cheers to Emily Deschanel
for adding new ferocity to Animal Kingdom. Make no Bones about it: The actress who spent 12 years playing Fox’s quirky Temperance Brennan is a stone-cold revelation as a hardened ex-junkie with a criminal past on TNT’s deliciously gritty crime drama.

Jeers to Stranger Things
for unleashing something scarier than the Demogorgon. In honor of the Netflix hit’s upcoming 1985-set third season, Coca-Cola is planning to rerelease that year’s short-lived and so-not- lamented New Coke. Strangest thing about this? We’ll probably like it this time around.

Jeers to The Jeopardy! Leaker.
James Holzhauer’s 32-game winning streak ended on June 3rd, but the big shock was spoiled days earlier by some loser who tweeted footage of the champ being out- smarted by librarian Emma Boettcher. No question: The producers should sue!

Extreme Queens

By Donald Liebenson, ReMIND Magazine
 
Mae West said it first: “When I’m good, I’m very good; but when I’m bad, I’m better.” The same can be said for the screen’s extreme queens — the bombshells, the B-movie sirens and the direct-to-video dazzlers who turn every movie they’re in up to 11 just by their formidable presence.

How do we love them? Let us count the ways.

They Have The Most Exotic Names
Chances are Joan Lucille Olander wouldn’t exactly put bottoms in the seats. But Mamie Van Doren, her screen name, absolutely did! Likewise Vera Jane Palmer, Emily Bertelsen and Jo Raquel Tejada, who made era-defining names for themselves as Jayne Mansfield, Marie Windsor and Raquel Welch, respectively
.

The Marilyns 2.0
Some like it hot, and there was no one hotter in Hollywood than Marilyn Monroe. Not surprising, then, that the studios groomed their own Marilyns. Jayne Mansfield was the most successful of these, but there are several others who rose above their bombshell typecasting by adding their own indefinable oomph to their roles (who can forget Anita Ekberg cavorting in Trevi Fountain in Federico Fellini’s La Dolce Vita?). Other memorable stars in this category include Mamie Van Doren (Untamed Youth), Marie Windsor (Cat-Women of the Moon), Carol Ohmart (William Castle’s House on Haunted Hill), Barbara Nichols (Where the Boys Are) and Diana Dors (Man Bait).

They Made The Coolest Movies
Suffice it to say these versatile and prolific actresses generally did not appear in films with Oscar cred. Horror, biker, rock ’n’ roll and women-in-prison films, sci fi and erotic thrillers are seldom touted as Best Picture candidates. But no matter the genre, they are the life of the party. Seriously, what’s more fun to watch: Academy Award winner Luise Rainer in The Great Ziegfeld or Tura Satana in Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!? Helen Hayes in The Sin of Madelon Claudet or Pam Grier in Foxy Brown? Meryl Streep in Sophie’s Choice or Barbara Steele in Black Sunday?

They Made Drive-Ins Great Again
In the 1970s, Roger “King of the B’s” Corman produced a spate of sexploitation films that were progressively feminist. Yes, they had their quota of nudity and/or sex, but beyond that, he allowed the filmmakers creative rein. Corman and others released women-in-prison films, blaxploitation flicks and student-teacher/nurse potboilers that tackled social and political issues (no, really), and ushered in a new wave of formidable heroines, most notably Pam Grier. Her character in the revenge actioner Coffy was hyped in the film’s coming attraction as “the baddest one-chick hit squad that ever hit town!” That about covers it.

They Were The Home Video Industry’s Secret Weapon
In the early 1990s, video stores could not live on major studio releases alone. They needed product and lots of it. Independent studios cranked out low-budget direct-to-video titles that tended to ride the coattails of whatever was hot theatrically at the time. The scandalous success of Basic Instinct ushered in the golden era of the erotic thriller and made above-the-title stars out of Shannon Tweed, Shannon Whirry, Tanya Roberts, Maria Ford and others. In some they played damsels in distress, in others the femme fatale. But they made the most of the starring roles they were not being offered by Martin Scorsese or other A-list directors.

They Are Artists
The budgets are low. The hours are grueling. Nudity is oft-times required. Why would an actress put herself through the grindhouse grind? Just ask Maria Ford, star of such early career films as Stripped to Kill 2 and Naked Obsession. “You have to love to act,” she told an interviewer. “I’m willing to take my clothes off for 10 percent of a film so I can act in the other 90 percent.”

Richard Chamberlain

Paging Doctor Dreamy.

By Taylor Neumann, ReMIND ReWind
 
Before there ever was a “McDreamy” or a “McSteamy,” there was Richard Chamberlain, or Dr. Kildare, perhaps the originator of the romantic doctor trend.
Chamberlain was born in Beverly Hills, Calif., in 1934. He was forced to delay his acting dreams to serve in the U.S. Army during the Korean War and didn’t begin appearing in television series until 1959. In 1960 he appeared as Lt. Dave Winslow in an episode of the NBC Western Riverboat, and it was less than a year later when Chamberlain broke out as the star of the hospital drama Dr. Kildare.
Chamberlain costarred with Raymond Massey (who played Dr. Leonard Gillespie) and became a household name. Week to week, the pair worked at the fictional Blair General Hospital, helping patients with their problems.

With those bright blue eyes and smoldering charm, Chamberlain became an instant heartthrob, and the show received as many as 12,000 fan letters a week. It spawned merchandising tie-ins featuring the likeness of Chamberlain as Dr. Kildare, with toys, games, novels and comics. Critics loved him, too — Chamberlain won a Golden Globe in 1963 for his performance.

But his talent wasn’t limited to just acting. His voice was equally beautiful, with hit songs during the early 1960s including the “Theme From Dr. Kildare (Three Stars Will Shine Tonight),” where he sang romantic lyrics set to the show’s opening theme music. The song reached the No. 10 position on the Billboard Hot 100. He also recorded versions of “All I Have to Do Is Dream,” “Love Me Tender” and “Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo.”

After the show ended in 1966, Chamberlain spent time in England doing repertory theater, joining the BBC production of The Portrait of a Lady and cementing himself as a serious actor. He also starred in 1969’s The Madwoman of Chaillot with Katharine Hepburn.

Chamberlain began a stretch of leading roles in films in the ’70s, including The Music Lovers (1971) and The Three Musketeers (1973). He also starred in a musical adaptation of Cinderella called The Slipper and the Rosein 1976, showing off his vocal skills. But it was his turn in the apocalyptic cult film The Last Wave that is most remembered today.

Later, Chamberlain took on the nickname “King of the Miniseries,” as he appeared in numerous miniseries including Centennial (1978-79), Sh?gun (1980) and, most memorably, The Thorn Birds (1983), in which he starred with Barbara Stanwyck and won another Golden Globe for his performance.

In the ’90s, Chamberlain appeared onstage in the popular revivals of My Fair Lady and The Sound of Music. In 2003 he released his memoir, confirming to the world that he was gay. The press from the revelation led to roles in TV shows such as The Drew Carey Show, Will & Grace and Nip/Tuck, and in another musical — this time the touring production of Spamalot in 2009.

Chamberlain currently lives in L.A. and enjoys poetry and watercolors.
