Okay, some updates.
Holiday cheer turns to holiday fear when a private investigator’s father is kidnapped in TNT’s all-new original movie Deck the Halls, starring Kathy Najimy, Scottie Thompson, Jane Alexander, Larry Miller and David Selby. Based on the book by Mary Higgins Clark and daughter Carol Higgins Clark and the first in their series of holiday mystery novels.
A crackling good mystery with a warm holiday heart, Deck the Halls brings together two of the Higgins Clarks’ most popular characters: cleaning-woman-turned-amateur sleuth Alvirah Meehan, »
Following last week's announcements of the Competition and Spotlight, Park City at Midnight, Next <=> and New Frontier lineups, the Sundance Film Festival, running January 19 through 29, has just announced the lineups for its out-of-competition Premieres and Documentary Premieres sections.

Just about every film at Sundance is a world premiere. So why is there a "Premieres" section, and how is it different than the Competition or the Spotlight or the New Frontiers or the Next or...okay, I think that's all of them. Sundance describes Premieres as "a showcase of some of the most highly anticipated dramatic films of the coming year from new and established directors" and Documentary Premieres as "about big subjects or by master filmmakers that showcase the power of the form."
Basically, what it really means is here's where you find the attention-grabbers at Sundance. These are the big honking movies, the movies featuring Hollywood directors and talent coming down from their Valhalla of craft services and video village to get their hands dirty with the independents. These are the movies that have the biggest red carpets and the majority of the press coverage (see this post).

The Sundance Film Festival (apart from Venice) remains the only major film festival that we have not yet had a chance to fully cover. Hopefully 2012 will change that situation. It is one of our goals for next year and so you should be seeing a lot of Sundance posts for the next two or so months.
Sundance has just announced their Feature and Documentary Premieres for next months line-up and it of course includes notable stand-outs including Spike Lee‘s latest Red Hook Summer, Stephen Frears‘ Lay the Favourite, Josh Radnor‘s sophomore effort, Liberal Arts with Elizabeth Olson and Joe Berlinger‘s latest documentary on Paul Simon. In other words, if you are lucky enough to attend the festival, now is the time to get even more excited.

Special Event with Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s hitRECord on Jan. 26
Sundance Institute announced today the films selected to screen in the out-of-competition Premieres and Documentary Premieres sections of the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. The Festival will be held January 19 through 29 in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden and Sundance, Utah. The complete list of films is available at www.sundance.org/festival.
John Cooper, Director of the Sundance Film Festival, said, “The fact that most of the Premieres have been produced completely independently further underscores the resourcefulness and tenacity of filmmakers in this climate. That drive and entrepreneurial spirit has pushed narrative and documentary filmmakers alike to create rich stories which will entertain and inspire audiences at the festival and in the year to come.”
Trevor Groth, Director of Programming for the Sundance Film Festival, said, “Featuring one of the most influential directors of all time »

Someone in Storybrooke is finding their unhappily ever after next Sunday, so it's time play 'Guess the Corpse!' The Grim Reaper may not be an official fairy tale character, but he's still making his way for Storybrooke... and just in time for the Dec. 11 episode of Once Upon A Time! We've known for a few weeks about the impending vacancy -- the victim's fairy tale counterpart will still be seen in flashbacks -- but with the major killing now less than a week away, we can really start to cook up some wild theories. So who do You think will be saying sayonara to Storybrooke? We already know that said corpse is someone who exists in both Storybrooke and the fairy tale world, so that eliminates Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and Henry (Jared Gilmore.) And considering how vital they are to the real-world drama, I think it's also safe to »

Though Sundance tends to be stereotyped as the place for heavy, dour stories of shattered lives, it’s actually a great place for comedies. Think Napoleon Dynamite, Little Miss Sunshine, The Kids Are All Right, and last year ‘s Our Idiot Brother and Cedar Rapids.

It’s Prince Charming’s story, kind of, this week. Not much magic in it. We discover that Charming isn’t Charming, but his twin brother, a shepherd, whose name we don’t learn. It’s the Prince and the Pauper! In Fairy Tale, James dies and his twin brother, separated at birth by, who else, Rumpelstiltskin, has to take his place. In Storybrooke, David leaves his wife for Mary Margaret, but then goes back after recovering some memories, »

Looks like we'll have to wait a little longer to see David & Mary Margaret find their happily ever after! What would a fairy tale romance be without a third party determined to keep the happy couple apart? On the Dec. 4 episode of Once Upon A Time, Regina (Lana Parrilla) made it her personal mission to keep David (Josh Dallas) from being with Mary Margaret (Ginnifer Goodwin.) And her job was easier than she thought, because David started to get his memory back -- and he decided that being with Kathryn (Anastasia Griffith) is the "right" thing to do. And while David's life in Storybrooke is certainly complicated, it's child's play compared to his royal soap opera going on in the fairy tale world. As it turns out, "James" wasn't the original Prince Charming. He had a twin brother who was sold by his poor family to a king, a deal »

Handsome Josh Dallas is at the romantic center of Once Upon A Time
Now that we’re heading into winter, the winners and losers of the fall TV season are apparent and one freshman series on the winning side of the ratings game is ABC’s Once Upon A Time. For those who have yet to check it out, the series, which comes from the creative forces that kept Lost afloat for six seasons, focuses on the town of Storybrooke, Maine and the group of fairy tale characters that have been banished there under a memory-erasing spell. So, for example, Snow White (Big Love alum Ginnifer Goodwin) doesn’t know she’s Snow White but thinks she’s sweet schoolteacher Mary Margaret.
Besides garnering strong enough ratings to warrant a full season of episodes, Once also is the one prime time series that has a legitimate Prince Charming. As portrayed by Josh Dallas, »
Besides spinning an emotional new tale, the Nov. 27 episode also taught us that crazy ladies and old men who play with puppets should not be given control over explosives. As the only therapist in Storybrooke, Archie (Raphael Sbarge) spends most of his time listening to other people's problems -- but Jiminy Cricket's drama took front-and-center on the Nov. 27 episode of ABC's Once Upon A Time, and it set the stage for an epic showdown between Archie and Regina (Lana Parrilla.) Who knew the cricket had a spine? Through the magic of nonlinear storytelling, we learned that Jiminy was once the son of traveling grifters in the fairy tale world. And when he tried to turn them into puppets -- via a magic potion brewed by the sexy Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) -- his plan went awry, and he ended up using it on Geppetto's parents. That's when the slutty Blue Fairy »

ABC Scene from “Once Upon a Time.”
Tonight’s episode tells the story of Jiminy Cricket in both Fairy Tale Land and in Storybrooke. In Fairy Tale, he’s a pickpocket from a thieving family who wants to go straight, but they keep pulling him back in. In Storybrooke, Dr. Hopper loses sight of his conscience when Regina orders him to strip Henry of his delusion.
It all starts out with a bang when Emma pins on her deputy’s badge, »

Did someone wish upon a star? Because ABC’s Once Upon a Time is back with new episodes this Sunday at 8/7c, and this time around the series is going to dive deep into Archie’s backstory – that is, the origin of Jiminy Cricket – by literally burrowing beneath the surface of Storybrooke. Here, we have a Q&A with Raphael Sbarge (who plays Archie) as well as some bonus scoop on Ruby/Red Riding Hood and a big loss coming in the winter finale (airing Dec. 11).

Despite my love for sci-fi and superheroes, fairy tale characters have never been my thing - although, having a niece, I'm acutely aware of the adventures of every one of the Disney Princesses - so I'm surprised at how taken I am with what has become my new fall obsession, ABC's Once Upon A Time. Especially considering I was highly skeptical of the premise in the beginning.
But here we are, weeks later, and it has me glued to the tube more than any other new series of the season.
For some, Once may harken back to the Sunday nights when families would gather around the tube to watch The Wonderful World of Disney, but I love that it's more than just a relatively kid-friendly tale of princesses and evil queens - it's a fairy tale saga with bite.
And that bite comes in no small part thanks to the »
