'Puzzle' is Well Made, but a Few Pieces are Missing

MOVIE REVIEW
Based on the film Rompecabezas, Puzzle is one of those little-known independent films that sneaks into theaters with little to no fanfare, although the fact that it is being promoted “from the producer of Little Miss Sunshine” should help it get noticed somewhat. Puzzle is a quiet, little film about a woman who discovers that jigsaw puzzles are the key to changing her life. While the subject matter doesn’t sound all that exciting, the film really isn’t about puzzles but instead about one finding their voice, or so it appears. It’s also a message film that has its own agenda expecting the audience to agree with the choices of the main character and applaud her “brave” behavior. Frankly, it just feels manipulative.

Directed by Marc Turtletaub, Puzzle’s most impactful scene comes within the first few minutes. We see Agnes (Kelly MacDonald) cleaning up the house and they decorating it for a birthday party. Then we see her serving appetizers while being ignored by the guests. …

Who was Awarded the One with the Most Talent on 'America's Got Talent'?

The judges and host of "America's Got Talent" for 2017.
Mel B, Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks, Simon Cowell (Trae Patton/NBC)

Of all the reality competition shows, America’s Got Talent always keeps us guessing on who each season's winner will be. Unlike the other shows that will narrow down the competition to two or three finalists, AGT typically ends with a “top ten” of performers, so with tonight’s finale and 52 million votes cast, it really could have been any of them who would win Season 12 of the top-rated show.

This season top ten included one comedian, one ventriloquist, one dog stunt act, two dance/stunt/light show performing acts and five singers. After lots and lots of filler, five of them were eliminated right away: Evie Clair, Diavolo, Preacher Lawson, Kechi and Chase Goehring. And then there were five…



Winner of "America's Got Talent" for 2017.
Darci Lynne Farmer and Mel B. (Trae Patton/NBC)
Coming in fifth place was Sara and her dog Hero. Mandy Harvey came in fourth. Light balance came in third and then it all came down to pint-sized Angelica Hale with the powerful voice and the puppetmaster, Darci Lynne Farmer. And the winner, of course, was Darci. (Did anyone not see that coming?) Special mention goes to Mel B.s hair.

And so ends another great season of America's Got Talent.
