Who went home on X Factor UK: Live Shows 2?

To recap last night's live shows:
-Misunderstood were the best as per usual imo, they sang Close To You, their vocals were on point, there was a dance break and everybody was having fun. Louis Tomlinson decided to be a grumpy cat by saying it's concerning that people are most excited about their dance break instead of their singing and it is a vocal competition (sis. if this was about vocals you wouldn't be sitting there today), Simon didn't understand the staging.
Basically the judges were mostly negative to most contestants, telling them they chose the wrong songs and shit, every time one judge criticised an act from another judge, that other judge would criticise their act in return etc. The judges thought United Vibe were terrible and they asked Twitter fans to give them a new name. Molly Scott sang 'Little Do You Know' by Alex & Sierra, and Robbie's wife said "Nobody even knows that song, i don't know why you chose it Simon"...well nobody knows who you are yet you are on he panel...glass houses.
-The judges' favorite was Dalton Harris yet again, who sang I Have Nothing and put us all to sleep.
-Everyone was super boring except for Acacia & Aaliyah, Misunderstood and Giovanni Spano (who sang Baby One More Time and it was hilarious and glorious lmfao , if we ignore the scream at the end)

[Two acts went home!]

Janice Robinson went home along with LMA Choir. (good riddance lol)
Brendan Murray was in the bottom two.

ONTD Reading Challenge post! November: TL;DR!

November's task in the ONTD Reading Challenge is to take it easy! Read a novella or a book that's under 150 pages. milfordacademy and I have selected 10 books as suggestions.

The Hen who Dreamed she could Fly by Sun-Mi Hwang

This is the story of a hen named Sprout. No longer content to lay eggs on command, only to have them carted off to the market, she glimpses her future every morning through the barn doors, where the other animals roam free, and comes up with a plan to escape into the wild—and to hatch an egg of her own.

An anthem for freedom, individuality and motherhood featuring a plucky, spirited heroine who rebels against the tradition-bound world of the barnyard, The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly is a novel of universal resonance that also opens a window on Korea, where it has captivated millions of readers. And with its array of animal characters—the hen, the duck, the rooster, the dog, the weasel—it calls to mind such classics in English as Animal Farm and Charlotte’s Web.

The Nightmare Before Christmas turns 25 today


Most think of Tim Burton when it comes to the iconic Halloween or xmas movie, but it was actually Henry Selick who directed the 1993 film.

Looking back on creating the movie, Henry shared that he regrets scrapping one part in the process!

"There’s a shot — and I really regret replacing it — at the very end of the film when Jack comes back and then Sandy Claws flies overhead and there’s snow and Christmas comes to Halloween Town. We show a lot of Halloween Towners enjoying winter sports and snow and you see the vampires playing hockey and they hit the puck right at the camera — and originally it was Tim Burton’s head,” Henry says.

Selick adds that he'd take out the pumpkin and put in Tim Burton's head instead. No word from Burton if he would have been mad, since thats the reason Selick was worried and took it out.


Happy birthday Nightmare Before Christmas!!

Today on The View: Meghan McCain Throws a Temper Tantrum & Joy Snatches Her Wig!

For so long we have waited for The View to become interesting again after Meghan's return from grief leave and the panel welcoming Autobot Abby Huntsman, and our prayers were finally answered today. When speaking about the pipe bombs sent to top Democrats/Trump critics to the massacre at the Pittsburgh Synagogue, Joy and Sunny put the blame, first and foremost, on Trump's rhetoric and the country needing stronger gun laws. Of course, Meghan being the gat toting pistol holding NRA card carrying member, jumped on Keith Ellison and Tomika Mallory meeting with Farrakhan.

Meghan made snide little comments like "you're not even looking at me so I don't know even know why I am bother" and "I thought we were gonna have commentary on civility and not on gun laws"

Whoopi interjects on Meghan and tries to keep the panel calm to which she responds by crossing her arms like a petulant 12 year old.

Shannen Doherty is not here for the Charmed Reboot hate

-At a recent Paris Con, a fan asked Shannen what were thoughts were on the reboot to which the crowd started booing.

-ShanDo wasn't here for it. She has seen a lot of hate surrounding the show and the cast. She wants to remind people that the actresses are just trying to do their job, is employing hundreds of people, and it is a good influence for the younger generation.

-She knows that it isnt the OG fans Charmed but we still have our Charmed and now a new generation can have their own version of Charmed because the fans have been so great since the OG show aired that there was interest in bringing it back.

-But one thing the new Charmed won't be able to do? Have as great of a character as Prue Halliwell (where are the lies) or have as loyal of fans.

Charmed (2018) airs weekly on TheCW at 9pm EST. Check your local listings.

Oscar hopeful 'Roma' may be eyeing an early theatrical release before Netflix debut

Now that Netflix is starting to realize they have a real awards contender on their hands with Alfonso Cuaron's semi-autobiographical 'Roma', they are considering releasing it in theaters (limited release) a couple of weeks before its mid-December Netflix debut, according to the source.

'Roma' is looking at a limited release on November 30 not just in Los Angeles and NYC, but other select major cities in the US as well.

The film was already scheduled to be screened in 100 theaters in the US on December 14, the same day it streams on Netflix, but that of course may change if all this is true. It will not be featured in IMAX as other movies are already scheduled for the platform through the end of the year (Fantastic Beasts 2, Mortal Engines, Aquaman).

- Treasure's older sister Nina, 25, spoke out in an interview with Essence saying her family is pulling a scam and that her sister just wants to be a meme while their mother wanted a free trip.
