Much like the all-female “Ghostbusters” film of 2016 and the recent female-led “Star Wars” films, “Captain Marvel” has served as a flash point for online anger even before hitting theaters. Critic aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes had to change its policies to stop online trolls from leaving negative reviews before even seeing the film, and YouTube has been flooded by videos calling for boycotts of the movie in part because its star, Brie Larson, said that she wanted to see greater gender and racial diversity in film criticism. Fair or not, as Marvel’s first female-led film, many will look to “Captain Marvel” to be a standard-bearer in the same way 2018’s “Black Panther” was for black superheroes.

It’s the latest piece of the shopping center’s $1.1 billion renovation and expansion and amps up the mall’s entertainment factor big time. When you say the bar is being raised, that’s actually true: The 10-screen cineplex’s second floor includes the Lobby Lounge, a 21-and-over glam bar and seating area that offers upscale flatbreads, burgers and other snacks as well as beer, wine and craft cocktails. If you can pull yourself away, the three ICON X auditoriums on that level offer reserved VIP seating areas, reclining leather chairs and in-theater dining. Even the downstairs concessions stands are beyond the norm, with orders made on touchscreens and picked up elsewhere. … [Read more...] about New luxury movie theater opening at Westfield Valley Fair

Supported by ByAlice Jones Jan. 10, 2019 LONDON — If James Graham has learned one thing from writing his latest political drama, it is this: “Brexit sends reasonable people mad,” he said. “You are stepping into an arena where normal rules don’t apply.” That drama, “Brexit: The Uncivil War,” a TV movie about the 2016 referendum in which Britain voted to leave the European Union, was broadcast in the country on Monday and debuts on HBO in the United States on Jan. 19. The show’s making was unusually fraught, plagued by the leaks, squabbles and contradictory briefings that also characterize British politics. First, in July, an early draft of the script was leaked and commentators rushed to mock it … [Read more...] about Brexit Is Dividing Britain. So Is a Brexit Movie.
