  4. When you watch a movie like Fifty Shades Darker -- the much-hyped sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey, and the second installment in a trilogy to conclude with Fifty Shades Freed next year -- you expect a lot of the conversation to revolve around the hotter moments between Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and Ana Steele (Dakota Johnson), or the delicious romantic intrigue that permeates every corner of the film. Curious fans, however, are very interested in a much smaller part of the film -- a throwaway moment in Christian's childhood bedroom where we see a Chronicles of Riddick poster hanging on the wall. The Chronicles of Riddick, like Fifty Shades Darker, is the second film in a three-part series, and it stars Vin Diesel as a highly skilled predator and member of a warrior race...

  5. Phoebe Waller-Bridge is in talks to join the cast of the upcoming Han Solo movie, according to Variety. Reportedly, the role will be a "CGI-driven" performance, with comparisons made to Alan Tudyk's supporting role as security droid K-2SO in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. If things work out with Waller-Bridge, it's exciting news for a couple of reasons. First of all, she's a tremendously talented actress, as anyone who's had a chance to see her series Fleabag (above) on Amazon can testify. She wrote the six-episode series, based on her own, award-winning play, and stars as the titular character, a young woman dealing with the many challenges of living in modern-day London, while also harboring complicated, unresolved issues concerning a recent...

  8. For example, they’ve done a 1920s-style version of “Gangsta’s Paradise,” they got an extremely sad clown to sing a Lorde song, and they recreated “Welcome to the Jungle” on the harp and cello. Well, for reasons unbeknownst to everyone, their latest video features an Isley Brothers-style rendition of Haddaway’s “What Is Love,” AKA the song from the “Roxbury Guys” SNL sketch/movie, and in the middle of it, The New Day’s Xavier Woods Honor Rolls in to play the tambourine and, of course, the trumpet.

  9. There’s new life at the former Liquid Kitty in West LA, as the understated drink spot on Pico Boulevard flips into a new concept called Neat. Wen Yeh, the backer at spots like BRU HAUS, West End, and The Belmont, is behind Neat, and says the place is looking to be a moodier neighborhood drink destination for a slightly pricier clientele.

  10. Internet backbone providers are an important part of the Internet ecosystem. These commercial Internet services have datacenters all over the world and help traffic of millions of people to flow from A to B. When the average Internet user types in a domain name, a request is sent through a series of networks before it finally reaches the server of the website. This also applies to The Pirate Bay and other pirate sites such as Primewire, Movie4k, TorrentProject and TorrentButler. However, for more than a week now the US-based backbone provider Cogent has stopped passing on traffic to these sites. The sites in question all use CloudFlare, which assigned them the public IP-addresses and While this can be reached just fine by most people, users attempting to pass requests through Cogent’s network are unable to access them. The issue is not limited to a single ISP and affects a small portion of users all over the world, the United States and Europe included. According to Cogent’s own backbone routing check, it applies to the company’s entire global network. No route to The Pirate Bay Since routing problems can sometimes occur by mistake, TorrentFreak reached out to Cogent to ask if the block is intentional and if so, what purpose it serves. A Cogent spokesperson informed us that they looked into the issue but that the company “does not discuss such decisions with third parties,” while adding that they do not control the DNS records of these sites. That the IP-addresses of The Pirate Bay and the other sites remains inaccessible suggests that it is indeed intentional. This is also backed up by the fact that the addresses in question have a “BGP community string” tag that prohibits it from being sent to other networks. For now, however, we can only speculate what the reason or target is. Since so many of the sites involved are accused of facilitating copyright infringement, it seems reasonable to view that as a possible cause. However, this remains unconfirmed for now. The Pirate Bay team is aware of the issue and tells us that users affected by the roadblock should contact Cogent with their complaints, hoping that will change things. In the meantime, people who want to access the blocked sites have no other option than to come up with a workaround of their own. According to various users the ‘roadblock’ can be bypassed with a VPN or Tor, and some proxy sites appear to work fine too. The websites themselves can still update their DNS records and switch to a new IP-address, which some appear to have done, but if they are the target then it’s likely that their new IP-address will be blocked soon after. — The following sites are affected by the Cogent blackhole, but there may be more. The Pirate Bay, Primewire, Movie4k, Torrentproject, Couch-tuner, Cyro.se, Watchseriesfree, Megashare, Hdmovieswatch, Torrentbutler.eu, Afdah. Movie.to, Mp3monkey, Rnbxclusive.me, Torrentcd, Moviesub, Iptorrents, Putlocker.com and Torrentz.cd.

  11. The estate of Prince, who long battled the music industry, announced a deal Thursday with the world's largest label group Universal to release much of the pop icon's vast catalog. Under the deal, Universal gained rights to the fabled vault of unreleased music that Prince kept in his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota where he died in April. Universal is also taking control of 25 albums that Prince released on his own NPG Records imprint from the mid-1990s, when he wrote "slave" on his cheek and changed his name to the unpronounceable "love symbol" to fight his contract with Warner Brothers.
