Black Widow's Support

"Get me the best supporting cast possible!"To be honest we never thought a soloBlack Widowmovie was going to happen but the success ofBlack PantherandCaptain Marvelhas definitely convinced Marvel Studios that the future is with diversity (It took them long enough and will be embarassing forever that they couldn't be bothered to risk a female superhero until after DC proved the 'no-duh' appeal of female leads viaWonder Woman).Regardless of their motivations and sluggishness theBlack Widowstandalone is definitely on the fast-track now with new casting announcements.

So far we've got the always reliable David Harbour (thank god thatStranger Thingswoke people up to his talent!),the fast-rising Florence Pugh (so excellent inLady Macbethtwo years back and currently headliningFighting With My Family),and there are rumors that Rachel Weisz is also coming on board.The cast sounds very promising...

Wrapping Up: Stranger Things 2

By Spencer Coile

Stranger Things 2dropped to Netflix three weeks ago,and already,most fans have consumed it in its entirety.In fact,many people finished it within the first weekend.I covered thefirst halfof the season shortly after watching it,but because I choose not to binge the series in one sitting (just not my style of viewing),I was able to let the story and characters really sink in.

Now,having finally finishedStranger Things 2,I can safely say that the second half of the season eclipses the first half -- making it a solid addition to the cultural phenomenon that isStranger Things.After the jump,take a look at some brief thoughts about the season as a whole: what works,what doesn't,and what season three will hopefully bring...

Queen Viola.And Other Links

Bless Viola Davis forever
ATMZreporter asks her ifSuicide Squadwill net her another Oscar nod.Her face at this question!Her quote while laughing:

No.But that's okay.I'll stick with it.

We'll take it she means acting and not critically lambasted supervillain movies.P.S.Have you heard about thehilarious petition to shut down Rotten Tomatoesbecause ofSuicide Squad's abyssmal approval percentage (worse than Batman v Superman's score!).I guess we need a PSA on what "aggregate"means and also a PSA on how to find a good therapist in your neighborhood.In moreSuicide Squadnews,THR has a story about its rushed productionand competing edits.Worth a read if you're curious (but just ignore that confusingly written subheader).

Top 7 David Harbour

A surprise list to start your morning off right.We've been thinking a lot aboutStranger Thingsthese past couple of weeks,and many of those thoughts have revolved around the unexpectedly hefty role for usual supporting playerDavid Harbour.I personally think he's Best in Show in that sci-fi fantasy 80s nostalgia trip.The first time I remember seeing him was on Broadway in 2001 as the object of Robert Sean Leonard's crushing in Tom Stoppard'sThe Invention of Love.His profile has been growing slowly ever since and its a treat to see him make so much of such a big opportunity in the Netflix hit.

Ten Favorite Things About Stranger Things

Kieran,here.  There's something to be said about earnest storytelling in television.  It often comes packaged in projects that are deeply flawed,but somehow those flaws contribute to what make the show a singular experience.Such is the case with Netflix's "Stranger Things,"which premiered a week ago to much fanfare and online discussion.

Though "Stranger Things,"created by Matt and Ross Duffer very blatantly poaches elements from some very familiar markers it doesn't resemble anything else on television at the moment.The aforementioned earnestness of this series about supernatural and…well,stranger things happening in 1983 small town Indiana could have easily served as a liability,but becomes one of the show's greatest strengths.

All of my defenses were up going into my viewing of "Stranger Things".80s-era Spielberg holds little personal resonance as it does for others.I've never seenThe Goonies.I have a really sensitive gag reflex when it comes to inauthentic portrayals of children in movies and film.I was suspicious in the beginning,but "Stranger Things"won me over...
