10 Most Hated Doctor Who Characters

29 August 2014 8:33 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

BBC

Reactions to the new Doctor – the 12th, not including John Hurt’s War Doctor and the 10th Doctor’s petulant refusal to regenerate – have been pleasingly positive since the first episode of the eighth series aired on August 23rd, after some fears that younger fans of the rebooted Doctor Who would hate their new, older-looking hero.

In fact, for a show that’s been running for fifty years, Doctor Who hasn’t attracted a vast amount of negativity – it’s a deeply loved family-oriented programme that even survived cancellation, a sixteen years hiatus and a failed reboot for an American audience.

When the reboot finally succeeded, it was under the stewardship of Russell T. Davies and the BBC, thank goodness. Coming in 2005, it was also under the auspice of the Internet, and the Internet is never exactly coy about making its feelings known about television shows that it loves »

Snowpiercer Is The First Oscars Screener Sent To Academy Members

27 August 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Boasting a 95% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, Bong Joon-ho's Snowpiercer has become one of the most critically heralded films of the year. And now it's the first to be sent to the Academy of Arts and Sciences for consideration for awards season. Deadline dropped the news that a DVD of Snowpiercer has been sent out to Academy members, who could receive the sci-fi drama as early as today.

Who Review: 12th Doctor Debut (Spoilers)

24 August 2014 10:28 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 

Peter Capaldi made his much-anticipated Dr. Who debut this past weekend, stepping into the Tardis as the 12th Doctor. Did he live up to expectations, and did the season premiere episode “Deep Breath” give year 8 a strong start? Read on to find out more, but beware of spoilers.

 

 

The eighth season of Doctor Who aired this weekend and we finally got to see Peter Capaldi as the Doctor. Most of the pre-episode buzz had been highly positive for Capaldi. Now that we’ve actually see him in the episode “Deep Breath”, the question of every Whovian’s tongue is “Was he any good?”

 

Fear not fans. Despite having to meet excessively high expectations, Capaldi does not disappoint.  It’s hard to get a handle on what his version of the doctor will be like since the character spends most of the episode in a post-regenerative state of confusion, but he »

5 Geeky Things We Want This Week, The Modern Doctors Edition

22 August 2014 10:35 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Season 8 of the relaunched Doctor Who premieres tomorrow, and we cannot wait! Word is that Peter Capaldi is a darker and crazier iteration of the last Time Lord. Our writer Billy Fisher thinks he's going to be the "Darth Vader of the Doctors," which, we don't even know what that means, but it sounds amazing. But before we launch headlong into new adventures with a new Doctor, let's pause for a moment to honor the four men who have been the Doctor in the New Who era, and maybe buy some stuff to remember them by.

The Other Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver

John Hurt was the War Doctor, the one who fought the Daleks for (Time) Lord knows how long before ending the Time Wars by completely wiping out both the Daleks and his own race. That is some heavy shit. But he did what he did in the name of peace and sanity, »

What's It About? Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston star as gorgeous, globe-trotting vampire lovers in this delectable treat from writer/director Jim Jarmusch

Why We're In: As Adam and Eve, Hiddles is the mopey yin to Swinton's yang. The costumes and production design are to die (or live forever) for. John Hurt, Mia Wasikowska, and Jeffrey Wright shine in smaller roles. In a word, it's gorgeous.

‘Snowpiercer’ and The Risk of Revolution

15 August 2014 7:11 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

 

 

SnowPiercer 

Directed by Bong joon-ho

Written by Bong joon-ho & Kelly Masterson

South Korea, 2013

Warning: The following piece has significant Spoilers in regards to the plot of the film Snowpiercer. If you haven’t seen the film, go watch it, it’s absolutely fascinating, and come back and read.

The premise to Bong Joon-ho’s Snowpiercer (2013) is one of emancipation from a class system specifically designed for a superficial idea of balance – if there is no poor then there can be no elite. The elite in Snowpiercer enjoy showers and sushi, bright clothes and music; the poor freeloaders enjoy jelly protein bars and a ball that doesn’t bounce. This class system is deemed necessary for the insurance of humanity’s survival, perhaps because it is society’s longest lasting trait – the division of power, the subjugated and the subjugator. To lose this in 2034 is to lose humanity, at least that »

Peter Capaldi on the 'untouchable and unreachable' Time Lord in 'Doctor Who'

14 August 2014 1:26 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The "Doctor Who" team is in the middle of an ambitious worldwide tour.  They are covering seven cities stretching across five continents in a mere 12 days, and why?  Because the new Doctor is in and the new season approaches. Today, the Tardis is in New York City.  Following a screening of the upcoming, feature-length, premiere episode, "Deep Breath" (trailer below), Peter Capaldi (the Doctor), Jenna Coleman (Clara, his current companion), and Steven Moffat (Executive Producer) sit down with us to talk about the new season and Capaldi's first full outing as the legendary Time Lord. Capaldi is stepping into the role vacated last year by Matt Smith, and that makes him the 12th actor to be the Doctor.  Or, it does if you don't count John Hurt's War Doctor, but that is kind of a timey-wimey sidetrack. Moffat, Capaldi, and Coleman have only been in New York for 20 hours on this whirlwind tour, »

The Strain Survival Guide

10 August 2014 10:52 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Everything you need to know about Guillermo del Toro’s new horror television series…

A Boeing 747 lays dead on JFK airport’s runway, its lights off and crew not responding. Frantic control tower officials blame ‘technical faults’ and ‘terrorism,’ though there are no signs of struggle or escape. Whatever caused this is still locked inside.

No, this isn’t the beginning of Paul Greengrass’ latest movie, or a morally ambiguous Derren Brown special. It’s the opening of The Strain, Guillermo del Toro’s bestselling vampire-epidemic trilogy of books, which then became a television series.

This is the story of those books. Of their journey from an eight-year-old Mexican boy’s already-twisted imagination to failed pitches, unlikely bromances and, eventually, a television series that could redefine vampirism for the modern age.

The Strain doesn’t restrain its soul to just vampires. It’s also a global conspiracy, virus outbreak thriller »

Menachem Golan, Who Headed Cannon Films, Dies at 85

8 August 2014 1:48 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Menachem Golan, the colorful, free-spending Israeli-born producer and director whose Cannon Films yielded hundreds of productions starring the likes of Sylvester Stallone and Chuck Norris before going bust, died Friday in Israel, according to Haaretz. He was 85.

Golan, whose first name is sometimes spelled Menahem, was famous for his overblown pronouncements and business plans, and partnered for many years with his cousin, Yoram Globus. The duo started their U.S. career making fast-paced action exploitation titles starring the likes of Norris and Charles Bronson. Then, in the ’80s, Golan and Globus headed the ill-fated public company Cannon Entertainment, which began spending more on films such as “A Cry in the Dark,” “Cobra,” “Sahara” (1983), “Over the Top” and “Bolero” with such actors as Stallone, Brooke Shields and Bo Derek.

For a decade Golan dominated the market portion of the Cannes Film Festival, booking hundreds of pages a day in trade papers »

Alien: 35th Anniversary Limited Edition Blu-ray Release Details & Cover Art

8 August 2014 10:07 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

They were answering a distress call, but it wouldn’t be long before the crew of the Nostromo would need to send out one of their own. This year marks the 35th anniversary of Ridley Scott’s Alien, and to celebrate the film’s legacy, 20th Century Fox has unveiled eye-grabbing cover art for their Alien: 35th Anniversary Limited Edition Blu-ray release that depicts the Xenomorph and Ridley melding together.

Set for an October 7th release, the Alien: 35th Anniversary Limited Edition Blu-ray features the theatrical cut and the director’s cut, as well as a digital copy and some meticulously detailed cover art that makes it difficult to tell where a spacesuit-clad Ridley begins and where the Alien ends. This intertwined artwork fittingly depicts Ripley’s relationship with the Aliens, as she continually faces off against their ruthless species in four films. The 35th anniversary edition has »

Ian McShane and Nelsan Ellis Join Jazz Biopic ‘Bolden’

6 August 2014 1:44 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Ian McShane and “True Blood” star Nelsan Ellis have joined jazz biopic “Bolden,” it was announced on Wednesday. “Downton Abbey” star Gary Carr is playing Buddy Bolden, who is considered one of the leading forces behind the New Orleans rag-time music that gave way to jazz. The film follows Bolden as he's awash in memories of his long-forgotten youth as a groundbreaking cornetist, when he played and improvised his way to the forefront of a new musical style, ultimately creating what would evolve into jazz. Bolden was later diagnosed with schizophrenia. Also read: Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, John Hurt. »

‘Doctor Who’: Steven Moffat Teases ‘Doctor Rude’; New Season 8 Images

4 August 2014 12:07 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

It’s been a long wait for Doctor Who fans – following an eight month hiatus between the 2013 Christmas Special and the season 8 premier. Of course, Whovians are no stranger to lengthy breaks, since the series is not beholden to a specific annualized programming window; yet, season 8 comes with extra baggage – the official introduction of Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor.

Fans have enjoyed two sneak peeks at the thirteenth incarnation of The Doctor (if you include John Hurt’s War Doctor) – a brief glimpse at Capaldi’s eyes in the 50th Anniversary Special, “The Day of the Doctor,” as well as the post-regeneration epilogue in “The Time of the Doctor.” Yet, neither preview offered specific details about ...
