    The Spectator ^ | 30 April 2016 | Deborah Ross
    Captain America: Civil War is the 897th installment — or something like it — in the Marvel comic franchise. This time round, the superheroes take sides, with the marketing asking if you’re #TeamCap or #TeamIronMan but not if you’re #TeamNeither, as would be most useful in my case. I swear this is the last Marvel film I will see as I never get anything out of them and whatever I say only sets the fans against me, which is not what you want at my age.

    Lord of the Rings star Elijah Wood claims that young actors in Hollywood are being sexually abused by predatory high-powered 'vipers' working in the industry.. The Hobbit actor, 35, told The Sunday Times that the child abuse is 'probably still happening'. Shocking allegations that top Hollywood figures have been protecting child abusers have circulated widely in recent years. Several industry figures have been convicted following claims of sex abuse and former child actors - including The Goonies actor Corey Feldman, 44 - claimed he was 'surrounded' by molesters when he was a teenager.

    Because Netflix doesn’t own the global licensing rights to all of the movies and TV shows it carries, a good deal of its programming remains completely unavailable to subscribers outside of certain geographic regions. Indeed, one of the reasons why Netflix is so intent on developing its own original programming is precisely because they don’t have to deal with thorny licensing issues. Now if you find yourself in the frustrating position of wanting to watch something on Netflix that is otherwise geographically restricted, there’s a new desktop app that can help turn that dream into a reality.

    Actor-comedian Alan Young, who played the amiable straight man to a talking horse in the 1960s sitcom “Mister Ed,” has died, a spokeswoman for the Motion Picture and Television Home said Friday.

His children were with him when he died peacefully of natural causes, she said. Young was already a well-known radio and TV comedian, having starred in his own Emmy-winning variety show, when “Mister Ed” was being readied at comedian George Burns’ production company....

    UPDATED: Sean Penn’s humanitarian romance “The Last Face” is being savaged on Twitter after premiering Friday at the Cannes Film Festival. Commenters on social media are describing the film, which stars Charlize Theron and Javier Bardem, as the worst of the fest. Others are also quipping that the picture is so awful that it destroyed Penn’s relationship with Theron. The duo broke up a year ago. When critics weighed in, they largely echoed the flash reactions that bubbled up online.

    Stephen King tends to be one of the biggest cheerleaders for adaptations of his own work. People who follow him on Twitter know that they can always count on him to post trailers or send out reminders when new episodes of 11/22/63 are available, but one of his recent tweets about director Nikolaj Arcel’s adaptation of his Dark Tower books goes a lot further than just saying how excited he is for it. In fact, it might even be a really big twist for how the movie is going to handle the original story’s surprise ending—the real ending, that is....

The miniseries, adapted from an Anthony Trollope novel, arrives on Amazon on Friday, having aired earlier this year in the U.K. under the simple title Doctor Thorne. For its move to America, the show has put on airs. These airs reflect Amazon’s ambitions, ones that will perhaps...

    Morley Safer, an intrepid storyteller and interviewer whose name became synonymous with the newsmagazine "60 Minutes," has died. He was 84. Safer was the longest-serving correspondent in "60 Minutes" history. He joined the CBS program in 1970, just two years after it launched, and worked there ever since, contributing 919 reports over the years. He filed his last report in March. CBS announced Safer's retirement last week and televised a special hour-long retrospective about his career on Sunday. The timing of the announcement was partly due to Safer's poor health.

    As a blockbuster feature film, it had everything — beautiful women, heroic men, high drama on the high seas and scheming Nazis. Only the Nazis in this particular picture were behind the camera. Sadly for them, however, their grandiose attempt to humiliate wartime Britain over our worst maritime tragedy turned into one of the most epic cinematic disasters of all time. In summer 1940, as Hitler visited occupied Paris and considered how to deal with Britain, German screenwriter Harald Bratt went to see Joseph Goebbels in his Berlin office. He had a script for a film that immediately appealed to...

Marvel continues to roll out highly entertaining, funny, and engaging movies that nevertheless address serious issues, and not in a typical liberal-pap way. "Captain America: Civil War," is no different. To understand the film, though, one really has to have watched the previous Captain America, Iron Man, and Avengers movies. The plots are deeply interwoven and the characters introduced over a period of some seven or eight films. In the previous Captain America film, "The Winter Soldier," Steve Rogers, who has been...
