  1. Sara Sampaio

    Even within the context of an industry notorious for valuing end product over basic decency, this is pretty shocking. If the editorial was indeed published without Sara's consent and violation of a written "no nudity" agreement, Lui fully deserves to be raked over the coals.
  2. Marvel's The Punisher

    Turns out we don't have long to wait for this to arrive on Netflix, it was confirmed today that all the episodes will be released in the middle of November. The second full trailer just dropped too.
  3. Marvel's The Punisher

    Certainly no bad thing, although the absence of Rosario Dawson from the cast list has disappointed me a bit.
  4. Supergirl

    A fairly low-key opening to S3 I thought, but the show's overall ambition continues to impress. The opening sequence involving the truck and gatling gun was really nicely done and the entire submarine scene quietly accomplished for a comparatively low budget show.
  5. Black Panther (2018)

    The first official trailer is here.
  6. Football

    I'm no great lover of Man City and of course there's a heck of a long way to go this season, but we're probably witnessing some of the most entertaining football of the Premier League era from their current side, right up there with the best of Ferguson and Wenger's teams and possibly even better. Compare and contrast that with watching Jose's United, which at times is like being locked in solitary confinement.
  7. Gotham

    What on earth are the studio feeding David Mazouz? If he keeps growing at this rate, he'll be headed for the NBA instead of the Batcave.
  8. General Celebrity Gossip

    How insane would it be if Hollywood (allegedly the Babylon of the western world) was to demonstrate a stronger ethical code than the GOP, who refused to dump the Donald after his own history of molesting women became too obvious to cover up.
  9. Football

    We could do with an international lucky losers squad for Russia 2018, made up of talented players let down by inferior teammates. Pulisic, Bale, Robben, Vidal, Sanchez and Aubemeyang for starters. Big Jozy and Steven Fletcher as co-captains, obviously.
  10. Marvel's The Inhumans

    Finally got around to watching a bit of it. I wouldn't say it was a trainwreck by any means, just underwhelming and kind of pedestrian. The dialogue is very stilted, with a lot of the cast sounding too similar in tone and vocabulary, and the script doesn’t really seem to allow for anyone to cut loose or show real character. I did quite like Maximus, but that made me realise how much I was going to struggle with the story, because I couldn't really fault the reasoning for his coup. It's never a good sign when your villain seems more genuine than your heroes.
  11. Models in Movies

    For reasons not altogether clear to me at the time, Alessandra Ambrosio had a 'blink and you'll miss it' cameo in Casino Royale, although there was very little in the way of actual acting required.
  12. Models in Movies

    Her thread here at BZ suggests a career that never really took off, in both modelling and acting. Not sure why though, she strikes me as someone who probably could have done a lot more if she'd wanted it.
  13. Models in Movies

    I vaguely remember hearing that she was pregnant at the time of filming Sin City 2. The kind of thing that happens when you wait nine years between connected films, I guess. Not that I dislike Jamie Chung of course (quite the opposite), but given my ultimate pick for a replacement Miho, I would have gone for Rila Fukushima. Like Devon, she has that taciturn look off to a fine art. Perhaps they could cast her for the third movie in 2023.
  14. Blade Runner 2049

    The critical reception has been off the charts so far, I'm even contemplating going to see it in a crowded cinema.
  15. Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)

    Forgot to mention it before, but I really enjoyed this too. Not a perfect film, but a bold, punchy and generally likeable one. The amateurish quality of Spidey's crime-fighting antics is always such fun, and the perfect casting of Tom Holland helps. Thought some of the other additions to the cast fit their roles very well too, despite reservations I had about some of them.
