The Kevin Connolly directed biographical crime drama ‘Gotti’ was released on Friday and critics were, to put it mildly, underwhelmed. At the time of writing, which must be stressed, the movie has a duck egg on Rotten Tomatoes, which is actually quite a rare feat, and an average rating of 2.5 out of 10 from 23 reviews.

Metacritic has given it a slightly more generous 28% from 8 critics.

As we previously reported, the movie has had a rocky road in finding its way to screen. Just two weeks prior to its original release date the distributors, Lionsgate, sold the movie back to its producers. It has now been released by Vertical Entertainment and MoviePass Ventures.

Since Saturday morning when The New York Times published Uma Thurman’s depiction of assault at the hands of Harvey Weinstein, the writer/director most closely associated with her biggest successes has been the one taking a turn in the barrel. Quentin Tarantino, who directed Thurman in Pulp Fiction and two installments of Kill Bill, has been getting hammered on social media. The article reported — and showed footage — of a disturbing car crash that Thurman endured in the last days of production on Kill Bill, and it also detailed that he personally spit on her in one scene and choked her in another.

″A lot of those women are my dear friends and I love them and respect them and support what they’re doing, and want to be a part of that change and want to go along for the ride, but I should get in the back seat and close my mouth for a while,” Damon said of the “Time’s Up” movement during an appearance on the “Today” show.

“I really wish I’d listened a lot more before I weighed in on this,” Damon continued. “Ultimately, what it is for me is that I don’t want to further anybody’s pain. With anything that I do or say, so for that I’m really sorry.”

To be fair, "art" and "Star Wars" are hardly BFFs after the prequel trilogy.

When Vice Admiral Holdo used the last remaining Resistance cruiser to slice Supreme Leader Snoke's warship in two, did your entire theater collectively gasp? Or did someone stand up and shout "The sound is broken!" at the movie theater gods?

Apparently, the latter scenario has happened often enough to prompt a posted warning for moviegoers: Yes, the sound cuts out at one point. No, it's not a technical issue.

The scene occurs late in The Last Jedi. The First Order has almost snuffed out the last of an escaping wing of Resistance transports, so Holdo (played by Laura Dern) cooks up an inventive maneuver: She'll point the large decoy cruiser she's piloting directly at the pursuing First Order flagship and fire up the hyperdrive, wreaking havoc on the enemy warship and sacrificing herself in the process.

Miss America suspends CEO in email flap; more are on the way

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — The Miss America Organization suspended its CEO on Friday, less than 24 hours after leaked emails surfaced showing him and others disparaging the appearance, intellect and sex lives of former Miss Americas.

Sam Haskell said he will abide by the suspension, even while decrying the Huffington Post story on Thursday that publicized the emails as “unkind and untrue.”

“My mistake is a mistake of words,” Haskell wrote in a statement issued Friday night, shortly after the board suspended him indefinitely while it investigates the situation. “Much of what was reported is dishonest, deceptive, and despicable.


“The story is so unkind and untrue, and hurts me, my family, and the stewardship of this nonprofit,” he wrote. “Tho

se who know my heart know that this is not indicative of my character, nor is it indicative of my business acumen.”

Yashar Ali, who wrote the Huffington Post article, defended its accuracy Friday night, saying he was given the emails by two sources “who felt that Mr. Haskell’s behavior was egregious.” Ali said he now plans to publish all the emails he received in a future story.

The Miss America Organization said its board “will be conducting an in-depth investigation into alleged inappropriate communications and the nature in which they were obtained.”

The statement came hours after 49 former Miss Americas signed a petition demanding the resignation of Haskell and other pageant officials, as did more than 1,600 state and local titleholders, contestants and pageant volunteers.

The Miss America Organization did not indicate whether Haskell would be paid during his suspension.

The emails included one that used a vulgar term for female genitalia to refer to past Miss America winners, one that wished that a particular former Miss America had died, and others that speculated about how many sex partners another former Miss America has had.

NEW YORK (AP) — Mariah Carey is determined to have a better New Year’s Eve than in 2016 — she is returning to “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest” after last year’s debacle.

The Grammy-winning singer’s live performance in Times Square on New Year’s Eve 2016 was marked by problems. She was visibly upset and at points stopped singing, despite a pre-recorded track playing in the background. The performance went viral for all the wrong reasons.


Afterward, Carey posted a meme of herself on social media with the message “(expletive happens).” But it also led to a public spat between the best-selling singer and dick clark productions as to who was at fault, with Carey’s camp charging sabotage with technical glitches, including faulty ear piece, and dick clark productions denying the claims and charging she hadn’t rehearsed enough.

Now, both sides have kissed and made up.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Three opera singers and a classical musician say that world-renowned conductor Charles Dutoit sexually assaulted them — physically restraining them, forcing his body against theirs, sometimes thrusting his tongue into their mouths, and in one case, sticking one of their hands down his pants.

NEW YORK (AP) — The publisher of a new Richard Avedon biography says it will look into alleged inaccuracies raised by the late photographer's foundation, but rejected calls to withdraw the book.

Aronson and former foundation head and longtime Avedon colleague Norma Stevens. The foundation is asking that the Penguin Random House imprint Spiegel & Grau cease publication of the book, which came out last month and draws upon interviews with many of Avedon’s friends and associates.
