‘Masters of the Universe’ Reboot Wants Noah Centineo to Play He-Man

Netflix loves 10-episode TV seasons and reportedly doesn't see the value in longer original shows

Netflix is increasingly favoring 10-episode seasons for its original series. Deadline reported that Netflix sees little value in shows that exceed 10-episode seasons and 30 episodes overall, which is one reason many Netflix shows get canceled after two or three seasons. Netflix canceled "One Day at a Time" last week after three seasons, and all of its Marvel shows recently after two or three seasons. There's a reason you're seeing TV shows with shorter seasons on Netflix. When Netflix serious...

‘Dragged Across Concrete’ Director S. Craig Zahler Doesn’t Want You Spoiling His Movies [Interview]

With only three movies, writer/director S. Craig Zahler has established quite a voice for himself. The Brawl in Cell Block 99 director’s first three films are wholly uncompromising and polarize audiences in a time when so many filmmakers default to playing it safe.

‘Gloria Bell’ review: Julianne Moore gives a quietly shining performance

Julianne Moore's performance lets us see a woman who believes in love, in the way an old song can make you feel a little younger, and in the power of dressing up and hitting a dance floor by yourself, letting the music take you to a better place. Rating: 3.5 stars out of 4.
