Helen Murdoch on five films that have really divided opinion....
Man of Steel has taken the UK and Us box office by storm but it has divided cinemagoers and critics alike. Some have hailed Zack Snyder’s all actioner, whereas others have condemned its uneven storytelling and hectic action. Watching a film is always a deeply personal experience and one film can be adored by millions and equally hated by millions. That got me thinking about what other films have sparked such fierce debate amongst movie goers...
You only have to type Prometheus into Google to see the range of criticism and appreciation for Ridley Scott’s return to the Alien-verse. Some hailed it as a return to form and welcomed the return of the Xenomorph. On the other hand people hated Scott’s new incarnation so much that there are hundreds of blogs dedicated to Prometheus criticism. »

Pick a ring, any ring! When it comes to engagement bling there are plenty of options. But what about nail polish? Brides-to-be want a lacquer that enhances their sparkler and doesn't detract from it. Sure, classic bridal lacquers like Essie Nail Polish in Ballet Slippers or Essie Nail Polish in Allure (Kate Middleton's fave) are always top of the list, but are there any other complementing colors outside of nudes? According to celebrity manicurist April Foreman the answer is a definite "yes!" Especially if your gem has some color (think: sapphire, ruby and pink diamond). We asked April (clients include Charlize Theron and Natalie Portman) to pick the exact nail polish shades she would use for »

In Snowpiercer, in the future, the Earth will freeze over and everyone — from the filthiest to the fanciest — will live on a very large train that never stops moving. It completes its trip around the planet once each year, like the sun. And like the sun, it keeps its inhabitants alive. Not all of this is obvious in the first international trailer for the film, which is based on a French graphic novel and written/directed by Bong Joon-ho, the South Korean filmmaker behind The Host and Mother.
What is obvious: the healthy smearing of grime across each face in the large cast (Chris Evans, »

Annecy — Japanese anime studio Tezuka is in early conversations to create local versions around the world of its most famous property, and indeed one of the foundations of Japan’s distinctive anime style: toon TV series “Astro Boy.”
The best-known creation of Tezuka founder Osamu Tezuka, and first seen from 1952 as a manga graphic novel, “Astro Boy” is set in a futuristic world where robots live alongside humans. It turns on a young robot that fights crime and injustice, including other robots, which he often gives a good hammering.
Adapted as a TV skein in 1960, “Astro Boy” became Japan’s first smash-hit animated TV show. It saw a remake in 1980 and again in 2003, in a retread whose rights are owned by Sony.
Summit Distribution released a 2009 animated feature film, with Charlize Theron, Nicolas Cage and Freddie Highmore as “Astro Boy,” which was produced by Imagi Animation Studios, Imagi Cristal and Tezuka Productions. »

Chicago – With George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road” being prepped for release next year with Tom Hardy in the legendary role (and co-starring Nicholas Hoult, Charlize Theron, and Zoe Kravitz), it seems a perfect time to revisit one of Mel Gibson’s most legendary series of films with Warner Bros.’ “Mad Max Trilogy,” including “Mad Max,” “The Road Warrior,” and “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome.” The set includes no new special features but some excellent old ones have been imported and the video and audio have been tweaked on the first two movies while “Thunderdome” makes its HD debut altogether. It’s a really strong set.
“Mad Max” was a huge hit in Australia but it was really the superior “The Road Warrior” that made waves here. In fact, that’s the movie that I think most people remember when they hear the name of the legendary character (except for Tina Turner fans, »

The murder case against paraplegic Olympian Oscar Pistorius is delayed until Aug. 19 following a hearing Tuesday (June 4) in his native South Africa. Pistorius is out on bail but faces a premeditated murder charge in the death of his girlfriend, model Reeva Steenkamp.

Steenkamp's family previously told reporters they have banned TV in their homes due to the media coverage of their loved one's death. Reeva's body was found behind a locked bathroom door in Pistorius' home on Valentine's Day 2013. She had suffered multiple gunshot woulds and a crushed skull.
The delay in the case was at the request of the prosecution. The hearing lasted just 20 minutes.
