‘The 40-Year-Old Version’: Film Review

‘The 40-Year-Old Version’: Film Review
In Radha Blank’s semi-autobiographical comedy, the quadruple-threat plays “Rahda Blank,” a Harlem-based playwright who faces many of the same struggles and setbacks as her creator.

It’s been more than a decade since Radha (as we’ll call the character) earned a promising “30 Under 30” award, and now, instead of getting her work produced, she’s teaching drama to half a dozen high school students. Tastemakers are constantly looking for the hot new thing, but all these years later, where they once spotted potential, her momentum appears to have stalled. In her frustration, Radha starts to rhyme, and the resulting raps are more honest than what she’d been writing for the stage. Her question: Is the world ready for “The 40-Year-Old Version”?

Judging by writer-director Blank’s mic-drop debut, the answer’s most assuredly affirmative. It’s affirmational, too, but not in a watered-down or obsequious kind of way.

The CW’s Mark Pedowitz Upped to Chairman and CEO

The CW’s Mark Pedowitz Upped to Chairman and CEO
The CW’s Mark Pedowitz has been promoted from president to chairman and chief executive, the network announced Friday.

The new deal extends Pedowitz’s tenure as the longest-serving current head of a broadcast TV network. The executive has served as president of The CW since 2011, and will continue to oversee all creative and business aspects of the network.

Since joining the network in 2011, Pedowitz has overseen the growth of the network’s programming slate, including the addition of Sunday-night programming in in 2018. The network currently has 18 original scripted series on its roster, including the full line-up of DC Comics series, all of which launched during Pedowitz’s tenure.

Mark Pedowitz Elevated To Chairman And CEO Of The CW

Mark Pedowitz Elevated To Chairman And CEO Of The CW
The CW President Mark Pedowitz has been upped to Chairman and CЕО of тhe network, a joint venture between Warner Bros. Entertainment and ViacomCBS. Along with the promotion, Pedowitz has signed a new multi-year contract to continue to oversee all creative and business aspects of the network.

The new title is reflective of how Pedowitz’s job — and the network — have grown in the past nine years.

Pedowitz joined the CW as President in spring 2011 amid rampant speculation that the money-losing network may shut down. Since then, Pedowitz has spearheaded the building and broadening the network’s audience, bringing in more older and male viewers and establishing a formidable DC Universe franchise on the network.

Under Pedowitz, the CW has ramped up the volume of original programming to 18 scripted series throughout the year currently, double the amount he inherited. To accommodate that, the network last season reclaimed Sunday as a night of originals.

Mark Pedowitz Named CW Chairman and CEO

Mark Pedowitz Named CW Chairman and CEO
Mark Pedowitz has been named chairman and CEO of the CW Network. The veteran television exec’s new deal will keep him ensconsed at the ViacomCBS-WarnerMedia joint venture, where he has served as president for nearly a decade.

Pedowitz last renewed his deal with the CW two years ago this month.

The extension and elevation solidify the youth-skewing broadcaster’s leadership at a time of transition for its corporate parents. Warner Bros., which holds 50% of the CW, was acquired last year along with the rest of the erstwhile TimeWarner companies (since rechristened WarnerMerdia) by AT&T. CBS, which owns the other half, was last month re-acquired by former sibling Viacom.

Both companies are in the process of repositioning themselves for a new era of digital-media consumption. When revealing its new direct-to-consumer product HBO Max last year, AT&T touted the fact that all Warner Bros.-produced CW shows would — eventually — be available on the service.

Crisis on Infinite Earths Part 1 DC Easter Eggs Explained

Mike Cecchini Jim Dandy Delia Harrington Dec 9, 2019

Supergirl brought us Crisis on Infinite Earths Part One and it's full of references to the classic DC Comics and much more!

This article contains Supergirl and Crisis on Infinite Earths spoilers.

If you're looking for every DC Easter Egg in Crisis on Infinite Earths Part 2, click here!

Well, it's finally here. Crisis on Infinite Earths kicked off with a tremendous, ridiculously ambitious hour of television. "Crisis on Infinite Earths Part One" is the Supergirl chapter of this year's Arrowverse crossover, so naturally it put a lot of focus on what was happening on Earth-38, with plenty of time for Superman and Lois to shine, as well. But there was a big surprise death along the way, with lots of breadcrumbs and DC Comics Easter eggs leading up to it.

In many ways, the “Easter eggs” of this episode are surprisingly subtle. It

No, The Far Cry 5 Ending Doesn't Suck; Here's Why

The dark ending to Far Cry 5 has proven very divisive, but here's why it doesn't suck. The Far Cry franchise began with the original game in 2004, where players guided ex-soldier Jack Carver around a lush island filled with mercenaries. The open-ended gameplay and stunning graphics made the game a hit, and it later received a live-action adaptation starring Til Schweiger (Inglourious Basterds) as Carver.

Far Cry 2 was released in 2008 and was met with a more mixed reaction. The game's large world and dynamic gameplay were praised, but constantly respawning enemies and a focus on realism that leads to weapons jamming were cited as annoyances. The series came into its own with 2012's Far Cry 3, which featured the most refined gameplay to date and a classic villain in Vaas.

Blood Valley: Seed’s Revenge follows Christine and her friends as they drive home through the desert from a bachelorette party. Stopped by a mysterious woman who is dressed in a police officers uniform, they are lead straight into the trap of mass murderer Max Seed. Seeking revenge from a mishap years ago, the blood soaked madman is determined to inflict an insufferable pain to anyone who crosses his path.
