TV Review: The Legend of Korra—"Turning the Tides"

19 June 2012 12:02 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Shit gets real in the penultimate episode of The Legend of Korra's season finale first season.

If there's one complaint you can lobby against The Legend of Korra's favor, it might be that the show is moving a little bit Too fast.  A couple weeks ago, I thought that was one of the show's strong suits, and what made it stronger than Airbender—we never had to stop and waste time with episodes like The Cave of Two Lovers or The Great Divide.  It was all story, all the time.  And since the story is so perfectly plotted, I really wasn't complaining.  But looking back, I really wish this show had a little breathing room, and could develop episodes such as the two listed above.

The only reason I bring this up is because, half way through "Turning the Tides", it dawned on me that we only had »

'Hook' Star Dante Basco Developing Prequel on His Character Rufio?!

21 May 2012 7:16 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Since the Steven Spielberg adventure Hook was already a sequel to the classic tale of Peter Pan, you might expect that a return to Neverland over 20 years later with Robin Williams and maybe even Dustin Hoffman reprising their roles would be in the cards. Instead, Crave Online has word from actor Dante Basco, who played the lewd, crude, rude, bag of pre-chewed food dude, Rufio, is in the middle of developing a prequel that follows that very character. Basco, who is now 36-years old, will not be reprising his role, but as a producer he's already locked down Rpin Suwannath, who was once rebooting Zorro, lined up to direct. Basco told Crave briefly: "Actually there’s a film in development, the Rufio film, where a hotshot group of kids from the East Coast graduated and they wrote this whole script, the prequel to Hook and it’s the Rufio story. »

Dante Basco plans a Rufio prequel to Hook

21 May 2012 6:06 PM, PDT | | See recent Filmonic news »

Steven Spielberg’s Hook is one of my favorite movies of all time. I watched it so many times when I was a kid, I can’t even look at it objectively anymore. (We talked about it on an episode of my podcast, which you can listen to here.) Spielberg put a new spin on the Peter [...]

Photos: Man Regrets Getting Twilight Tattoo

13 April 2012 6:10 PM, PDT | | See recent Worst Previews news »

Today we have a story about a man, who made a huge mistake when he agreed with a friend to let each other choose their tattoo designs and be blindfolded while the ink was applied. When the tattoo artist finished his job and the blindfold was removed, the man saw that he now has a tattoo of Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen from the "Twilight" franchise. Obviously life becomes difficult when you have to explain why you have Edward Cullen tattooed on your body. As a result, the man finally decided to cover the tattoo up by changing it to a shot of Rufio, played by Dante Basco in Steven Spielberg's "Hook." Check out the before and after shots of the tattoo below. Photos (Before and After): (click to enlarge) »
