“Can someone disappear when they’re already gone?”

Lia Haddock, intrepid reporter and main character of Limetown (played by Jessica Biel), asks this question in a sound byte that plays over her daily routine. She’s talking about her uncle Emile (Stanley Tucci) who vanished along with everyone else who lived in the eponymous town’s city limits, but for a moment there, we think she’s talking about herself. Lia’s life looks empty and feels emotionally strained, like there is a deep unrest within her that will never be calmed because she doesn’t want it to be.

We’re told she never got over the disappearance of Emile, that he’s her Samantha Mulder. We believe the show — to a point. But it seems as though Lia

‘Limetown’ Review: Jessica Biel Stars in a Faithful (& Tense) Adaptation of the Podcast

Back in 2003, the residents of an entire town in the middle of the Tennessee foothills disappeared in the middle of the night. What happened to them remained a mystery for years, if only because no logical explanation could be found and no survivors had apparently turned up. Then, more than a decade later, a journalist named Lia Haddock decided to investigate. This is Limetown, the Facebook Watch series adapted from the podcast of the same name created by Skip Akers and Zack Bronkie, who are also executive producers on the show. It stars Jessica Biel and Stanley Tucci, who …

Kingsman 3 Script Has Been Written Confirms Taron Egerton

  • MovieWeb
Eggsy himself says that Kingsman: The Golden Circle will get the follow-up that was promised. While speaking at Ace Comic Con Midwest, Taron Egerton (Rocketman) confirmed a script for the final installment of Matthew Vaughn's initial Kingsman trilogy has already been written. Although he wasn't allowed to reveal much about Kingsman 3, the actor had this to say about his next stint in the Kingsman suit.

"It's a really neat idea. That plan, at the moment, is that we'd like to do another one, one more time."

When Vaughn chose Egerton as his Gary "Eggsy" Unwin, he was taking a bit of a risk. Taron Egerton was generally unknown at the time, but Kingsman sparked the young actor's career which now includes popular projects like Sing and its upcoming sequel, Netflix's The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance and Rocketman in which he lended his voice and acting chops to portray music legend Elton John.

Limetown Review: Jessica Biel Leads Solid Facebook Watch Thriller

Serialized TV shows can be hit or miss. 

Many start well but struggle to live up to the lofty expectations set by the series premiere, but Limetown, starring Jessica Biel, is a mystery drama done right. 

Lia Haddock is at the center of this story as she attempts to unravel the truth behind the disappearance of over 300 people at a neuroscience research facility in Tennesse a decade earlier. 

It's a fascinating hook and one that carries a lot of emotional weight for the people close to the missing individuals. Jessica Biel (The Sinner) plays the role of Lia to perfection. 

Lia has invested a lot into finding out what happened to these people, but she comes across many hurdles in her quest for the truth. To people on the outside looking in, it would seem like Lia is using her status as a radio host to expose what went down.

Movie Review – Night Hunter (2019)

Night Hunter, 2019.

Written and Directed by David Raymond.

Starring Henry Cavill, Ben Kingsley, Alexandra Daddario, Stanley Tucci, Minka Kelly, Nathan Fillion, Carlyn Burchell, Eliana Jones, Brendan Fletcher, Mpho Koaho, Emma Tremblay, Sara Thompson, Daniela Lavender, and Beverly Ndukwu.

Synopsis:

A weathered Lieutenant, his police force, and a local vigilante are all caught up in a dangerous scheme involving a recently arrested, troubled man who’s linked to years of female abductions and murders.

Night Hunter is a special dumpster fire that upon watching it, one has absolutely no clue what attracted any of its big celebrity names to the project. If I had to guess, I would say nothing more than the possibility of a worthwhile dialogue coming from a modern-day serial kidnapper/rapist of women narrative releasing during the current political landscape. There’s even a scene early on where Henry Cavill’s detective Marshall lectures his teenage daughter

Night Hunter review – sicko serial killer, meet the vigilante castrator

Henry Cavill hunts a split-personality murderer in this throwaway throwback to the days of straight-to-video shlock

These days, most younger readers probably don’t even understand the meaning of “straight to video”. But back in the day, it was a label slapped on films, often genre fare, so unloved by even their rights holders that only contractual obligation ensured they would see the light of day. This crime thriller, with its lurid serial-killer conceit and a cast peppered with talents who must have just needed the money, is a nostalgic throwback to those straight-to-video guilty pleasures of yore.

Henry Cavill glowers manfully throughout as a hardened detective named, with on-the-nose nominative determinism, Marshall, pursuing a sicko in Minnesota who kidnaps and imprisons young women in his dank torture dungeon, damaging their hearing in order to play out his compulsions. The twist is that Marshall and his colleagues, including police commissioner
