"GLOW" is a new Netflix dramedy series that focuses on the personal and proffesional lives of a group of women who perform for a wrestling organization in 1980s Los Angeles.

The title GLOW is actually an acronym for Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, a women's proffesional wrestling promotion originally created by David McLane that premiered on television in 1986 and continued in various forms after it stopped airing. The performers were usually actresses, models, dancers and stunt women looking for a job in show business. The show features a fictionalized version of G.L.O.W.

The series was created by Liz Flahive ("Nurse Jackie", producer/writer) and Carly Mensch ("Orange is the New Black", producer/writer) and it stars Alison Brie, Betty Gilpin, Ellen Wong, Sydelle Noel, Britney Young, Britt Baron, Sunita Mani, Marianna Palka, Kia Stevens, Jackie Tohn, Kate Nash and Marc Maron.

The first season of "GLOW" consists of 10 episodes and was released on June 23rd, 2017 via Netflix. The show received positive reviews from critics that praised its writing, cast and production design.

"Transformers: The Last Knight" is the fifth installment in the long-running partnership between Paramount and Hasbro. Michael Bay once again directs, but he has announced that this will be his last film in the franchise he directs. Mark Wahlberg also returns as Cade Yeager from "Age of Extinction" and he is joined by franchise veterans Josh Duhamel and John Turturro, and newcomers Laura Haddock, Isabela Moner, Jerrod Carmichael and Anthony Hopkins.

The voice cast includes Peter Cullen, Erik Aadahl, Ken Watanabe, Omar Sy, Jim Carter, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Frank Welker, Reno Wilson, John DiMaggio and Mark Ryan.

"Transformers: The Last Knight" opened in theaters on June 21st, 2017 and was universally panned by critics. The complaints regarded the usual suspects found in most Bay movies: brash mix of action and comedy, chaotic editing, confusing plot, the objectification of women and machismo. The visual-effects, however, were well-regarded.

The film is also having trouble at the box-office, grossing an all-time franchise low of $15.7 million on its first day, which lowers initial projections of a $70-75 million opening weekend down to $60-65 million.
