Hi Mommy! 'American Horror Story' Plays Host To A Chilling Family Reunion [Spoilers]


Chloe Sevigny Matt Bomer Sarah Paulson Kathy Bates Wes Bentley Naomi Campbell Cheyenne Jackson Lady GaGa

'American Horror Story' has returned with yet more blood and supernatural horrors than ever before with 'Season 5: Hotel'. If you thought 'Freak Show' was as bizarre as it could go, you'd be wrong. And episode three 'Mommy' takes it up yet another spine-chilling notch.

Chloe Sevigny in 'American Horror Story: Hotel'Chloe Sevigny has the creepiest greeting so far in 'American Horror Story: Hotel'

So what's happened so far? Well episode one 'Checking In' saw Hotel Cortez play host to some particularly creepy, bloodthirsty forces, with the wretched, ill-fated guests being killed by flesh-eating ghost kids, raped to death by the Addiction Demon and slashed to ribbons by vampires during an orgy. Plus, Hypodermic Sally (Sarah Paulson) has fallen to her death at the hands of Donovan's (Matt Bomer) protective mother, hotel manager Iris (Kathy Bates). Naturally, events have caught the attention of Detective John Lowe (Wes Bentley).

Zac Efron's 'We Are Your Friends' Performs Disastrously On Opening Weekend


Zac Efron Emily Ratajkowski Wes Bentley

Zac Efron’s latest movie has suffered the worst opening weekend for a movie featuring in more than 2,000 cinemas in American history. We Are Your Friends, in which Efron stars as a young DJ struggling to make it in the EDM scene, took just $1.8 million from its showings in 2,333 locations across the U.S., making it the worst opening weekend ever, not adjusting for inflation.

Warner Bros. studio paid $2 million to distribute the movie, which is directed by Max Joseph and also features Wes Bentley and Emily Ratajkowski, across North America on behalf of Working Title Films and StudioCanal. This is a very modest outlay, but tracking had indicated that they were hoping for an opening in the region of $8 million given Efron’s presence, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

‘American Horror Story: Hotel’ Stars Dish The Dirt On Lady Gaga’s Themed Pool Party


Lady GaGa Sarah Paulson Angela Bassett Wes Bentley

Lady GaGa is an artist known for her eccentricities so it seemed like a match made in heaven when she was cast in American Horror Story: Hotel. To celebrate the upcoming series, Gaga threw a pool party at her Los Angeles home and invited the cast and crew of AHS: Hotel. Obviously, the 29-year-old couldn’t just throw any old pool party and she even dyed her swimming pool blood red for the occasion.

We Are Your Friends Review

Good

Basically the perfect summer movie, this lightweight drama has a great-looking cast and plenty of youthful energy, but not much authenticity or depth. The plot traces a young aspiring DJ trying to make his mark on the music world, and his struggle isn't exactly gruelling. But what the movie lacks in realism it makes up for in melodrama, keeping the audience involved simply because the characters are relatively enjoyable company.

Zac Efron plays Cole, a smart young guy who spends his days and nights hanging with his chucklehead pals Mason, Ollie and Squirrel (Jonny Weston, Shiloh Fernandez and Alex Shaffer), playing music, doing drugs and tormenting the girls. But Cole has skills mixing tracks to keep a dance floor busy, and one night he's noticed by his idol James (Wes Bentley), a star DJ with a hot girlfriend, Sophie (Emily Ratajkowski). James helps Cole discover his own distinct voice, while Cole can't help but fall for Sophie. Meanwhile, Cole and his buddies need to make some cash, so they take a job with a dodgy property developer (Jon Bernthal). But Cole is determined that this kind of work won't be his future.

Director-cowriter Max Joseph never really bothers to develop any of this properly, letting the film glide along on Cole's cool beats while indulging in arty touches like an animated drug trip. There isn't much complexity to any of the characters, but the actors add interest in the way they interact, developing camaraderie that says a lot more than their relentless macho swagger. Efron is the only actor who is allowed to offer a glimpse beneath the surface, and he navigates Cole's darker emotional moments nicely. But the script continually undermines him. For example, there are constant references to his strong moral code, and yet he seems utterly unbothered about seducing his mentor's girlfriend. Opposite him, Bentley gets to do some ace scene-stealing, but everyone else fades into the wallpaper.

To make matters worse, his friends are becoming increasingly frustrated with him for refusing to seize a once in a lifetime opportunity to make something really special.

Welcome To Me Trailer


Oprah obsessed Alice Klieg suffers from Borderline Personality Disorder which causes her to be socially awkward, impulsive and stubborn, and she's about to find out that money truly can buy you anything.

Interstellar Review


Very Good

Brainy blockbuster maestro Christopher Nolan heads into deep space with this epic adventure, which is packed with thoughtful ideas and big emotions even if the plot wobbles badly in the middle. But although it ultimately feels somewhat forced, the film is still a mesmerising exploration of parenthood and survival, bending time and gravity in ways that keep our brains spinning. And the seamless visual effects combine with some wrenching performances to make it unmissable.

It opens in a future America where a desperation for food has overtaken the need for technology and innovation. Which is a problem for Nasa pilot Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), who is now working a massive corn farm that he runs with his father (John Lithgow). Then Cooper and his daughter Murph (Mackenzie Foy) discover a gravitational anomaly that leads them to a secret base run by father and daughter scientists Brand and Amelia (Michael Caine and Anne Hathaway), who are looking for a new home planet for humanity since Earth is dying. So Cooper joins up and heads through a wormhole with Amelia and crew (Wes Bentley and David Gyasi). Meanwhile, Murph (who grows up to be Jessica Chastain) gets involved in the project back on earth, wondering if her dad will ever return home as he promised.

The first act of the story is a beautiful depiction of yearning for discovery, that innate curiosity that drives people to do crazy things in the hopes of pushing the humanity forward (or in this case, saving it). Nolan directs this section beautifully, with sharp editing propelling the story out into space with real energy and passion. But once they begin visiting other planets, there are some extended episodes that feel oddly contrived, including an encounter that leads to unexplained violence, explosions and melodrama. These kinds of things undermine the characters' motivations to the point where the audience just has to take Nolan's word for it and ride it out, even as the underlying ideas begin to lose their weightiness.

Interstellar Trailer


Mankind is doomed. Following generations of neglect and a lack of care, the planet Earth is a polluted mess and food supplies have all but run out. Only one hope remains for humanity if it is to survive into its next generation - they must leave Earth behind. Cooper (Matthew Mcconaughey), is a widowed engineer, living in a time where engineers are no longer needed. He also happens to be one of the world's best pilots. He is offered the choice to stay with his children and except the fate of the human race, or captain a mission through a newly discovered wormhole in search of a new, habitable planet which can sustain the prolonged existence of our species. He chooses the latter option, and begins his interstellar travels in search of a new home.
