24 May 2016 10:59 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The price of these fountain pens take “cost per word” to a whole other level.

Nowadays, fountain pens are often considered luxury goods, even though there are now pens on the market that can mimic the writing quality of fountain pens.

Fountain pens are a favorite for calligraphy enthusiasts and even professional artists in need of perfect ink distribution for their artwork. Others buy the most expensive fountain pens in order to relieve themselves from stress from writing with a normal ball point pen.

These pens are also works of art, making them a favorite item for collectors everywhere, because each collector wishes to showcase the artwork used in the design of the pen’s body and the structure of the inkwells which makes the fountain pen work.

Cobra at 30: saluting a Stallone 80s action treat

Was there ever a better 80s' tagline that 'Crime is a disease. Meet the cure'? Join us in celebrating the 30th birthday of Cobra...

This article contains spoilers for Cobra. We suspect we're the only website to have written those words in recent times....

Had Sylvester Stallone had his way, the now cult classic Beverly Hills Cop would have been a much different film. Before Eddie Murphy was cast in the role that would define his acting career, the part of Axel Foley was offered to Sly. Yet the Italian Stallion had other ideas in mind for what he wanted the film to be, so he took it upon himself to rewrite the script, moulding it to suit his strengths as a white-knuckled mortal terminator. As screenwriter Daniel Petrie Jr told us last year, whilst it was "considered a coup to have written a script to attract »

Jimmy Fallon, Billy Crystal Impersonate Celebrities on Variety Magazine Covers

21 May 2016 1:35 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Impersonation virtuosos Jimmy Fallon and Billy Crystal have breathed new life into the imitation game.

The comedians used magazines, including two Variety covers, to do impressions of celebrities Friday on “The Tonight Show.” Fallon held up Variety‘s April 21, 2015, Power of Women New York cover of Kim Kardashian and did his best high-pitched Valley Girl accent. He then spoofed Sylvester Stallone using our Jan. 5 cover of the “Creed” star, mumbling a string of incoherent words.

The “Saturday Night Live” alums also took on Vladimir Putin (on Time), Seth Rogen (Rolling Stone), Arnold Schwarzenegger (GQ), Mathew McConaughey (GQ) and Alec Baldwin (New York Magazine) during the skit set in a doctor’s office.

However, the highlights of the sketch were their impersonations of presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump.

I am here with a urinary tract infection. Right now I am feeling the burn,” Crystal said, holding up Rolling Stone »

Steven Spielberg says Guardians of the Galaxy is his favourite comic book movie

16 May 2016 5:23 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

He has been branded as one of the greatest directors of our generation, and now Steven Spielberg has been weighing in his thoughts on the comic book boom that has taken over Hollywood.

Speaking at Cannes, where his latest film The Bfg is screening, Spielberg was asked about ‘superhero movies’ and he unveiled which one is his favourite.

“I really like Richard Donner’s Superman, Nolan’s The Dark Knight and the first Iron Man movie, but the superhero movie that most impressed me was Guardians of the Galaxy,” he told various members of the press. “When it ended, I left the cinema with the feeling that I had just experienced something new, free of cinicism and without concern for being gritty when necessary.”

What do you make of Spielberg’s thoughts? Is Guardians of the Galaxy your favourite comic book movie?

DVD Review: Creed

16 May 2016 12:36 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ When Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) first stepped into the ring, onto the screen, and into the hearts and minds of cinema audiences back in 1976's Rocky, few would have predicted him making it to the seventh round. Even fewer would imagine that he'd still be holding his own (a couple of face-plants onto the canvas aside). But here we stand, almost forty years after its debut, and Ryan Coogler brings the Rocky franchise strutting back through the ropes with renewed vigour with Creed. It's a film that both homages and reboots the original instalment, moving forward with wit, charisma and a energy.

Creed; The Danish Girl; When Animals Dream; Mojave; The Chosen Ones – review

14 May 2016 11:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Rocky is successfully reborn as a young fighter’s mentor in Ryan Coogler’s weighty Creed; The Danish Girl is as much about changing frocks as identity

It’s 40 years since Rocky scrapped its way into cinemas – I’d have added “believe it or not”, but when you see Sylvester Stallone’s swollen, fallen, stray pug face in Creed (Warner, 12), you definitely believe it. Still, how many film franchises have lurched along with the same actor for that long? And how many of those can claim to have peaked in their fifth decade? Fine wine analogies don’t apply here: the Rocky films have been corked since the 1980s. But Ryan Coogler’s film – not so much an extension of a franchise as a fresh graft of its mythos – is a very robust red: it’s a boxing film alive with bodily tension, social concern and, by its roaring climax, »

Code Of Honor Review

8 May 2016 9:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Back in the 1980s and 1990s, action cinema was largely defined by a certain level of machismo. The typical action heroes were muscle-bound, seemingly invincible and known for their ability to dispatch one-dimensional villains with an endless supply of cheesy one-liners. The work of Arnold Schwarzenegger perhaps best exemplifies this particular style of filmmaking, but other stars like Sylvester Stallone, Jean-Claude Van Damme and Steven Seagal played in that very same sandbox and became international stars as a result.

Today’s most popular action films have embraced a very different approach, wherein the heroes are far more fallible and human and the violence is more grounded and visceral. Think the Bourne films or Daniel Craig’s James Bond. In recent years, the old-school style of action has largely been relegated to direct-to-dvd projects and nostalgia trips like Stallone’s The Expendables franchise. However, the new Seagal thriller, Code of Honor, »

Sharon Stone Joins a Marvel Movie, But Which One?

6 May 2016 6:29 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sharon Stone gave us one of the great sexy cinematic teases of all time in 1992's Basic Instinct. Now she's teasing Marvel fans with a tantalizing bit of casting news. Apparently she has joined an upcoming superhero movie, firmly staking her flag in some prime McU real estate. Though, she refuses to confirm what the movie is at this time.

Sharon Stone recently appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden. There, she dropped this hint during her chat. She doesn't get into any specifics. And she admits that it's just a small role, perhaps just a cameo. She explains.

"I am going to do a Marvel movie. I'm just doing a wee part in a Marvel movie, upcoming, and I can't tell, because you know, you have to sign confidentiality agreements. But I'm going to do a wee part in a Marvel movie now. That's it."

Sharon Stone Says She Has A Role In A Future Marvel Movie

6 May 2016 5:43 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

During an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Cordon, Sharon Stone came right out and revealed that she’s going to appear in an upcoming Marvel movie.

I am going to do a Marvel movie. I’m just doing a wee part in a Marvel movie, upcoming, and I can’t tell, because you know, you have to sign confidentiality agreements. But I’m going to do a wee part in a Marvel movie now. That’s it.

That’s all she would say, but it was more than enough to send the fan community into a frenzy of speculation. Right now, the most popular theory seems to be a small role in the currently shooting Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Reason being that director James Gunn is a big fan of all things ’80s, and – if the rumor holds weight – has already made room for Stone’s The Specialist co-star, »

Well, this is interesting. Sharon Stone was a guest on The late Late Show with James Corden, and during their chat the actress revealed that she's going to appear in an upcoming Marvel movie. Stone didn't get into specifics, and by her own admission it'll only be a small part, but one would imagine it'd still be more than just a brief cameo. Here's the quote in full: "I am going to do a Marvel movie. I’m just doing a wee part in a Marvel movie, upcoming, and I can’t tell, because you know, you have to sign confidentiality agreements. But I’m going to do a wee part in a Marvel movie now. That’s it." So, which movie is she talking about? There's a chance it could be the currently shooting Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 - which might also feature Stone's The Specialist co-star »

Celebrate Rocky's 40th anniversary with a special return engagement

6 May 2016 7:32 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

While we appreciated the poignant turn 69-year-old Sylvester Stallone gave as aged Rocky Balboa in last year’sCreed, let’s turn back the clock 40 years and marvel at his original performance in 1976’s Rocky. Here was an unknown, droopy-eyed actor who refused to sell the script he wrote in three days — and with only $106 to his name, and a pregnant wife at home — unless he could play the muscle-bound boxer.

Producers Irwin Winkler and Robert Chartoff agreed and Stallone didn’t disappoint, giving a magnificent performance as the hard-luck pugilist who wants nothing but the chance to go the distance with reigning heavyweight champ Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) and win the heart of shy pet-store keeper Adrian (Talia Shire).

Rocky earned 10 Oscar nominations, including one for Stallone as Best Actor, and took home the Best Picture award. Atta boy Rocky!  »
