‘The Good Place’ Finale Review: A Long Goodbye with a Simple Message — Spoilers

‘The Good Place’ Finale Review: A Long Goodbye with a Simple Message — Spoilers
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “The Good Place” finale, Season 4, Episode 13 and Episode 14, “Whenever You’re Ready.”]

The Good Place” began as a show not about what happens after you die, but what constitutes a good life on Earth. With that in mind, the series finale plays out with an elegant simplicity. Each of the four humans — who, over the course of their time in The Bad Place and The Good Place, saved humanity and reconfigured the order of the universe — decide they’ve seen enough, done enough, and forked enough to say goodbye to the universe, reality, and/or consciousness forever.

Though, yes, they were technically dead the whole time, it’s still worth noting that three of the four leads on a broadcast network sitcom vanished from all existence at the end of “The Good Place” — and a fifth one, Michael (Ted “National Treasure” Danson) tried to! Such a morbid ending with such

Obi-Wan TV Show Reportedly Still In Danger Of Being Cancelled

It’s been a rollercoaster ride for Star Wars fans trying to keep up with all the news about the Obi-Wan Kenobi TV series over the past few days. First of all, Friday brought a shocking report stating that Lucasfilm had cancelled the much-anticipated return of Ewan McGregor to the franchise. This was soon debunked by a separate outlet, so we thought we could get back to normal. However, a third source has since come forward with new information that points to the show still being at risk.

Beyond The Trailer’s Grace Randolph has shared on Twitter that multiple sources have told her that the Obi-Wan project is being mired by problems behind the scenes, with the star and the studio apparently on opposing sides of some unknown altercation. The alarming thing here is that Randolph reports that, if this disagreement isn’t resolved, then that original story might

Star Trek 4 Director Drops Another Hint That The Movie’s A Reboot

There’s been so much behind-the-scenes upheaval on Star Trek 4 over the last twelve months that at this point it wouldn’t be surprising if Quentin Tarantino’s long-rumored involvement in the franchise came to fruition before the latest installment in the Kelvin timeline, despite the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood filmmaker recently admitting that he might simply walk away from a project that he’s been consistently linked with for years.

Following the conclusion of Justin Lin’s Star Trek Beyond, the crew of the Enterprise have seemingly been placed in development stasis. Shortly after the third movie’s release, Chris Hemsworth was announced to be reprising his role as George Kirk in the fourth entry, before he dropped out over a pay dispute, and has shown no signs of changing his stance. For a while, it even seemed as though Star Trek had lost its leading man,

Star Trek 4 Director Teases That The Movie May Be Another Reboot

The long and troubled production history of Star Trek 4 may have taken another twist today. When the project was originally announced, Chris Hemsworth was set to reprise his role of the deceased George Kirk from the prologue of J.J. Abrams’ first entry in the Kelvin timeline, presumably with some time-traveling shenanigans allowing him to share the screen with Chris Pine’s James T.

However, some behind-the-scenes issues caused both stars to drop out, although Pine did eventually renegotiate his contract and sign on the dotted line to become the last Chris standing. Original director S.J. Clarkson also departed the movie, leading many to speculate that all was not well with the Star Trek franchise. Abrams’ two installments and Justin Lin’s Beyond all scored solid reviews from critics, but the box office numbers were somewhat lacking, with the global takings for the rebooted series averaging out at less than $400 million per movie.

Kevin Conroy Would Love To Star In An Arrowverse Batman Beyond Show

After voicing the character for 30 years, Kevin Conroy finally made his live-action debut as Batman this past week thanks to The CW’s “Crisis on Infinite Earths.” Now that he’s broken that barrier, the actor is keen to play Bruce Wayne in person full-time in a new Arrowverse show – specifically, a live-action twist on Batman Beyond.

An enthusiastic fan contacted Conroy on Twitter to say how much he wants to see him portray Old Man Bruce in a live-action Beyond reboot. In response, the star said: “I would love that.” So would the fans, Kevin, so would the fans.

Ian Somerhalder on Battling Vampires in Netflix Series V Wars: 'They're Really F---ing Scary!' — Grade the Premiere
Ian Somerhalder has returned to television for another dance with the undead, but if you’re hoping for the second coming of Damon Salvatore, you might want to adjust your expectations. And then run for your life.

The vampires of Netflix’s V Wars — whose 10-episode first season dropped in full on Thursday — aren’t the smoldering sex symbols roaming the streets of Mystic Falls. “These vampires are different,” Somerhalder tells TVLine. “They’re not hundreds of years old, they’re weeks old, so there’s no historical aspect.” And while there are many different types of vampires on the show,

Blu-ray Review: Wax Mask (1997)

Poor, poor Lucio Fulci. He spent the first half of the ’90s ill from his fight with diabetes; his last film Door into Silence, came out in ’91. Longtime rival Dario Argento offered an olive branch for the two to work on a project together; they wrote a story (and Fulci crafted a screenplay), but sadly Fulci passed away in March of ’96 before production started. But horror is persistent, and after Argento had FX maestro Sergio Stivaletti step behind the camera, the world was given Wax Mask (1997), a gnarly yet elegant period piece that manages to pay tribute to not only the fractured madness of Fulci, but Hammer as well. Now it can be yours with a glorious 4K transfer and a treasure trove of goodies from the upstanding citizens of Severin Films.

If one was to drag the ’50s Hammer films kicking and screaming across the floor and dropped them off in an Italian extrava-grossout,
