About: Henry Hill might be a small time gangster, who may have taken part in a robbery with Jimmy Conway and Tommy De Vito, two other gangsters who might have set their sights a bit higher. His two partners could kill off everyone else involved in the robbery, and slowly start to think about climbing up through the hierarchy of the Mob. Henry, however, might be badly affected by his partners' success, but will he consider stooping low enough to bring about the downfall of Jimmy and Tommy?
About: Tom Reagan (played by Gabriel Byrne) is the right-hand man, and chief adviser, to a mob boss, Leo (Albert Finney). Trouble is brewing between Leo and another mob boss, Johnny Caspar (Jon Polito), over the activities of a bookie, Bernie Bernbaum (John Turturro) and Leo and Tom are at odds on how to deal with it. Meanwhile, Tom is in a secret relationship with Leo's girlfriend, Verna (Marcia Gay Harden), who happens to be the sister of Bernie. In trying to resolve the issue, Tom is cast out from Leo's camp and ultimately finds himself stuck in the middle between several deadly, unforgiving parties.
“Days Of Being Wild”
About: Set in 1960, the film centres on the young, boyishly handsome Yuddy, who learns from the drunken ex-prostitute who raised him that she is not his real mother. Hoping to hold onto him, she refuses to divulge the name of his real birth mother. The revelation shakes Yuddy to his very core, unleashing a cascade of conflicting emotions. Two women have the bad luck to fall for Yuddy. One is a quiet lass named Su Lizhen who works at a sports arena, while the other is a glitzy showgirl named Mimi. Perhaps due to his unresolved Oedipal issues, he passively lets the two compete for him, unable or unwilling to make a choice. As Lizhen slowly confides her frustration to a cop named Tide, he falls for her. The same is true for Yuddy's friend Zeb, who falls for Mimi. Later, Yuddy learns of his birth mother's whereabouts and heads out to the Philippines.
About: Douglas Quaid is haunted by a recurring dream about a journey to Mars. He hopes to find out more about this dream and buys a holiday at Rekall Inc. where they sell implanted memories. But something goes wrong with the memory implantation and he remembers being a secret agent fighting against the evil Mars administrator Cohaagen. Now the story really begins and it's a rollercoaster ride until the massive end of the movie.
About: A woman married to the brutal and infertile owner of a dye mill in rural China conceives a boy with her husband's nephew but is forced to raise her son as her husband's heir without revealing his parentage in this circular tragedy. This tale of romantic and familial love in the face of unbreakable tradition is more universal than its setting.
whats your favorite movie from the 1990s??
The Exception, starring Jai Courtney, Lily James, and Christopher Plummer, opens in US theaters on June 2nd.
Summary:Set during World War II, German soldier Stefan Brandt (Jai Courtney) is sent on a mission to investigate exiled German Monarch Kaiser Wilhelm II (Christopher Plummer). The Kaiser lives in a secluded mansion in The Netherlands, and as Germany is taking over Holland, the country’s authorities are concerned that Dutch spies may be watching the Kaiser. As Brandt begins to infiltrate the Kaiser’s life in search of clues, he finds himself drawn into an unexpected and passionate romance with Mieke (Lily James), one of the Kaiser’s maids whom Brandt soon discovers is secretly Jewish. When Heinrich Himmler (Eddie Marsan), Head of the SS, decides to come for an unexpected visit with a large platoon of Nazis in tow, Brandt is forced to make the ultimate choice between following the Nazi party line and following his heart.
The Den of Geek review mentions a scene in which Mieke, the Jewish maid, "outright tries to console" the Nazi soldier Brandt after a "bothersome interaction" with Himmler, and calls him the exception when it comes to Nazis.
THR's review contains this gem: "When the poet Sylvia Plath wrote that 'every woman adores a Fascist,' she probably had someone like Courtney’s Capt. Stefan Brandt in mind. With his Aryan eyes bright blue, concrete abs disfigured by a scar just painful-looking enough to make him sympathetic, and an ineffable air of Weltschmerz, he’s certainly one dreamy Panzer-man."
Jai Courtney says: "He’s a third-generation soldier, a fierce patriot, but what he’s standing for is really in jeopardy. It’s that realization that his Germany, this fatherland, is becoming something so far away from what he’s used to fighting for. Not every man who fought in that (Nazi) uniform stood for those beliefs."
Also from THR's review: "the retired Kaiser Wilhelm (Christopher Plummer), revealed to be a rather cuddly old man once you get beyond the self-aggrandizing monologues and the anti-Semitism"
how do you feel about Nazi romances, ONTD?
-Anya Taylor-Joy will play Magik, sister of Colossus
-Maisie will play Wolfsbane who has the ability to turn into a (Dire)wolf
In last week's issue of X-Men Gold, the X-Men discovered that the Heritage Institute, an anti-mutant think tank, was behind the new Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. They had paid Mesmero to brainwash the Brotherhood members into comitting terrorist acts to support their anti-mutant policies.
No, The X-Men Don't Torture The Head Of The Heritage Think Tank https://t.co/87FsX4p0Wx— Bleeding Cool (@bleedingcool) May 11, 2017
The X-Men confront the director of the Institute, a woman named Lydia Nance. Kitty has Rachel telekinetically lift Nance in the air, while they threaten to expose her.
Yesterday, the Federalist published an article titled "X-Men Torture Head Of ‘Heritage’ Think Tank In New Comic Book," where they also bashed Marvel for inserting politics in their comics and making conservatives the bad guys in a series that's about an oppressed minority group fighting against their persecution.
Despite the fact that there wasn't any actual torture in the comic, other right-wing sites such as Glenn Beck's website have also reported on the Federalist's fake news.

Any predictions on how the season will end? Do you think melanie will finally speak in tonights episode? Will we see Hiram Lodge? Do you think Cheryl and her mother killed daddy blossom and staged it as a suicide? Will Veronica and Archie finally get together?
What is the best compliment you've got, ONTD?

I'm actually pretty excited for this arc, Stuck Together was really good.

Kinda sucks, I liked Making History.

I don't know what I'm going to do with my life waiting for this messy ass show to come back.
This past weekend I was working as a wedding coordinator and while taking pictures of the wedding party in Central Park a certain celebrity/domestic goddess/former convict walked by...then came back around to take pictures with the group and I...
Full story: As I was corralling the wedding party into the cars to get them to the reception, Martha strolled by and said very casually: "Oh, you ladies look lovely!" then continued down the street. She was walking with a male friend (he's a designer or someone well-known in interior design, I just can't place him). He stopped at the hot dog vendor to get a NY hot dog and I told myself this was a once in a lifetime opportunity and I had to... I walked up to her and said hello. I told her that she just made our day, but she could make our lives if she would pose for a picture with us! She joked with me about how much she loves making comments to wedding parties when she sees them and how she gets a kick out of their reactions. She agreed to take the picture and as we walked back to the group, asked her friend if she looked good enough for a picture. He said yes and she jumped right in with the group. Her friend snapped pictures on her phone and I took some on mine. After the g
roup shots I told her I needed a picture too, so her friend went took a few of us on my phone. I was holding the bride's bouquet this entire time and she says "Oh let me hold the bouquet!" This all resulted in this:
The next day, my friend tagged me in a Facebook post saying I was featured in this article.
So, basically I am famous and BFF's with Martha and this is my super fun post about it.
tl;dr - I met Martha Stewart and it was pretty awesome.
harrystyles See you at midnight everywhere.
The album is already out in a bunch of countries,going to #1 in all of them except for Japan, which was #3. Since the album's technically out, inevitably people are listening to it. Harry meanwhile will be on the BBC 1 Breakfast show to play his album tomorrow, and is on the cover of Sunday Times.
He was @ London today for a secret pre viewing of his Apple music movie, behind the scenes which is reportedly an hour long.
