fall festival favorite Waves, Shults delivers his most fully realized, fully felt stunner yet, a gut-wrenching drama about a seemingly idyllic upper-crest Florida family (Sterling K. Brown, Renee Elise Goldsberry, Kelvin Harrison Jr. and Taylor Russell) whose lives become untangled after a shocking tragedy. While Shults’s distinctive, pulsating style surely adds to the tension — it’s the sharply written, deeply effective non-traditional story arc and powerhouse performances (which are all-around, but most notably by This Is Us Emmy winner Brown, playing against-type as a far-from-perfect father) that ultimately make this one a must-see gem. — K.P.” data-reactid=”72″>Indie film fans are surely familiar with the work of writer-director Trey Edward Shults, whose startling feature debut, the intense family drama Krisha, won the John Cassavetes Award at the 2015 Independent Spirit Awards. Shults followed up that horrors-of-family story by crafting an actual horror film with the slow burning post-apocalyptic thriller, It Comes At Night. Now with the fall festival favorite Waves, Shults delivers his most fully realized, fully felt stunner yet, a gut-wrenching drama about a seemingly idyllic upper-crest Florida family (Sterling K.

Robyn Crawford was Whitney Houston’s best friend, assistant, roommate and gatekeeper when it came to access to the superstar. But from the “Greatest Love of All” singer’s early days, people wondered if there was more to their relationship. Now, seven years after Houston’s death, amid addiction issues and voice woes, Crawford finally speaks, confirming for the first time that they had a sexual relationship, starting after they met as teens. And while, yes, the book details how they shared a bed for the first time, it really chronicles the love between them that lasted much longer than the sexual part. It also made clear Nippy’s early taste for cocaine, which she started dabbling with at 14 and used a lot with Crawford. While Crawford said they stopped having a sexual relationship at Houston’s urging in 1983 (Houston had just signed with Arista and felt it would hurt her career), she was fully along for the ride, climbing up the ladder at Nippy Inc. — first as an assistant and later overseeing merchandise and tours. Though things were decidedly complicated, especially as the women explored romances with others. For instance, Houston became enraged when Crawford was interested in one of her backup dancers, firing the woman. Crawford didn’t give a thumbs-up to any of Houston’s loves — Jermaine Jackson, Eddie Murphy and Bobby Brown — either, saying the star always picked subpar partners. It was drugs and Brown which ultimately blew up the women’s deep friendship. While Crawford did her best to accept Houston’s marriage to Brown — throwing her bridal shower and standing as her maid of honor — she recalled Houston coming back from her Italian honeymoon with a cut across her face after a fight with Brown. And despite Houston telling Crawford over and over that “cocaine can’t go where we’re going” — meaning she would stop using when she became famous — we know how that ended. Crawford’s pleas with Houston to get sober fell on deaf ears.

Star Trek: Discovery brought back some classic Trek characters, before boldly taking the franchise into parts unknown. First, Anson Mount boarded the titular Crossfield-class spacecraft as Enterprise icon, Christopher Pike, who aided Michael Burnham (the always stellar Sonequa Martin-Green) to locate her half-brother — everyone’s favorite logic-minded Vulcan, Spock (played by Ethan Peck). Once reunited, the Discovery crew’s next thoughts turn to time travel: specifically by capturing a mysterious “Red Angel” that’s demonstrated the ability to pop up in different eras. That character subsequently sets up the show’s game-changing season finale, which is poised to put the “Discover” back in Discovery. “We make huge moves in the finale, to both synchronize with canon and then free ourselves from it,” showrunner Alex Kurtzman remarks in an exclusive clip from one of the many featurettes included on the Season 2 Blu-ray edition. (Watch the clip above.) His co-showrunner, Michelle Paradise, remembers assembling a super-sized 28-page outline for the last episode. “When I e-mailed it to Alex, I think the first thing I said was, ‘It’s not an episode of television,’” she says, laughing. She was right: that last episode became a two-parter that’s on par with some of the big-screen Star Trek features in its blend of action and breathless storytelling. — E.A.‘ data-reactid=”87″>In its sophomore season, Star Trek: Discovery brought back some classic Trek characters, before boldly taking the franchise into parts unknown.
