Understanding Plot Holes – Misdiagnosis & Bad Lexicon

17 August 2014 4:56 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

We’ve all been there. A group of friends or perhaps colleagues, at a bar around the block from a cinema or in your office rec room, chewing the cud about movies. One particular film comes up in the discussion, most likely a big release. Conversation turns to debate, since one of your group loves said picture and another loathes it. The more the fan sings its praises, the stauncher the naysayer’s protest becomes. With debate coming close to evolving into an argument, the critic goes for the home run strike by throwing out the gamechanging claim. “It’s full of plot holes” they declare.

Sometimes the fan will be silenced, the other members of the group may nod in agreement or realization. The idea has been planted in their heads, and they would have to go watch the film to disprove the critic. Even if they did, they »

True Blood, Ep. 7.07, “May Be the Last Time” is the season’s weakest ep

4 August 2014 9:17 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

True Blood, Season 7, Episode 7, “May Be the Last Time”

Written by Craig Chester

Directed by Simon Jayes

Airs Sundays at 9pm Est on HBO

On this week’s True Blood, Sookie seeks fairy assistance to cure Bill, Pam and Eric question Amber, Andy and Holly search for their missing children, and Hoyt returns to Bon Temps.

True Blood‘s final season has been excellent thus far–the writing’s tight, the story line’s are cohesive even when they branch in various directions, and the acting’s been lovely. After so many solid episodes, there was bound to be a dud–”May Be the Last Time” is, arguably, the weakest contribution to the series’s final season.

Up until now, the action and the emotional resonance have been evenly-balanced; for every Hep-v vampire attack, there were a handful of character moments showing just how affected the townspeople were by the tragedy. »

Snow White Prequel (Stupidly) Drops Snow White, Gets New Title and Release Date

31 July 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

‘The Huntsman’ release date announced as ‘Snow White and the Huntsman 2′ drops Snow White aka Kristen Stewart (photo: Chris Hemsworth in ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’) Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman 2 has a new title, as the "sequel" to Rupert Sanders’ 2012 fantasy adventure Snow White and the Huntsman is scheduled to arrive on screens in 2016 without Snow White — played by Kristen Stewart as an armor-clad Joan of Arc-ish heroine (minus the burning at the stake) in the original film. So, Snow White and the Huntsman 2 has now been renamed The Huntsman. Now, does it sound idiotic to drop Snow White from what was purportedly going to be a Snow White movie sequel? Well, it does — and that’s because it is. So, instead of calling Snow White and the Huntsman 2, or rather, The Huntsman, a "sequel," the film is now being referred to as a "spin-off" — or, to be more precise, »

True Blood Recap: The Waiting Game

27 July 2014 7:10 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

“Waiting sucks” took on a whole new meaning during Sunday’s True Blood, as Sookie was forced to sweat out the results of her Hep-v blood test. Is she responsible for inadvertently sentencing Bill to death?

Related True Blood @ Comic-Con: Ep Hints at Bill-Sookie Reunion in Series Finale

Sadly, the answer is yes; after the midnight assault on Fangtasia, when those H-Vamps exploded all over Sookie, she contracted the Hep-v virus and passed it along to Bill during their feedings. Even though it was obvious her test results would come back positive, it was heartbreaking watching Sookie wait for the news, »

20 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Eric and Pam track down Sarah Newlin and Jessica catches James cheating on her with Lafayette in True Blood’s “Return to Oz.”

After last week’s war at Fangtasia, things are setting down in Bon Temps. Arlene (Carrie Preston), Holly (Lauren Bowles), Nicole (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and Jane are safe at home, and the Hep-v vamps plaguing the town seem to be gone for the time being. Now, it’s time for Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) and Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) to start their hunt for Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp).

Eric And Pam Follow Sarah Newlin To Dallas

After releasing Willa (Amelia Rose Blaire) as her maker, Eric and Pam follow a lead Willa gave them in exchange for her freedom.

Savi’s office-mate Toni Tumbling Out of Her V-Neck (™) extends an olive branch — in the form of a box of tissues — on this week’s Mistresses (10/9c on ABC).

Why Andy Serkis deserves an Oscar nomination for Planet of the Apes

17 July 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It's the 1969 Academy Awards, and Walter Matthau and a tuxedo-clad chimp present John Chambers with an honorary Oscar for his work on Planet of the Apes. Viewed in retrospect it's one of the more surreal presentations in the ceremony's history, but this was something of a landmark event for the industry. It was only the second time the Academy had dished out a prize to make-up artists (William J Tuttle won four years earlier for 7 Faces of Dr Lao), and it highlighted the growing importance of Hollywood's backstage creative artists.

Fast-forward 45 years and prosthetics are giving way to digital pixels - for characters that require a complexity of movement and expression, performance capture technology gives a director the scope to execute their vision by marrying an actor's performance with visual effects. In its basic form, the actor will strap on a bodysuit that's wired up to a computer. All their »

Filming has begun on David Yates' Tarzan starring Alexander Skarsgard

15 July 2014 7:34 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Despite some productions delays over the years, principal photography is finally underway on David Yates' Tarzan. Pixar filmmaker Andrew Stanton didn't have much luck adapting Edgar Rice Burroughs' John Carter character for the big screen, so here's hoping that David Yates can bring us something special with Tarzan. Yates hasn't been up to too much since directing the last four Harry Potter flicks, aside from doing the pilot episode to Tyrant. I think he adaquetly carried Potter across the »

Sookie, Jason, Alcide, Andy and Sam took a road trip to learn more about the Hep-v vampires while Arlene struggled for a way out of Fangtasia in True Blood's "I Found You."

True Blood "I Found You" Recap

The episode began with Jason (Ryan Kwanten) having a sexy dream about vampire Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) – a side effect of having drunk Eric’s blood last season. Just as things start getting truly steamy, Jason wakes up with a jolt in a church.

Outside the church, Sookie (Anna Paquin) suggests to Andy (Chris Bauer) that they track where the Hep-v infected vamps came from by investigating the dead girl Sookie stumbled upon in the woods the other night. Andy, desperate for a lead to find Holly (Lauren Bowles), agrees, and tells Sookie and Alcide (Joe Manganiello) to meet him at the station. As for everybody else, Sam (Sam Trammell) encourages them »

Toy Story's Mrs. Potato Head's 6 Must-Pack Items for Summer Vacations

26 June 2014 8:11 AM, PDT | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

It's summer vacation time! Personally, we always forget Something when we pack. In honor of "Pixar Summer Movies to Go," packing expert Mrs. Potato Head from the Toy Story movies shares her six packing essentials for every trip:

 

Mrs. Potato Head says: “I’m packing your extra pair of shoes!” 

Don’t be a couch potato on your summer vacation; head outside and explore. When you’re packing your bags, make sure you’ve got comfortable shoes in your luggage. Nobody wants sore tootsies!  

1. “And your angry eyes, just in case!”

Who wants to get angry-eyed in the blazing sunshine? Nobody! That’s why it’s important to pack your sunglasses. If your eyes need some extra help, don’t forget to take your spectacles and contact lenses, too.

2. “A dime!”

A few dollars will certainly help ease your summer vacation needs. It also helps to have a credit card for any unexpected incidentals, »

The 55 Essential Movies Kids Must Experience (Before They Turn 13)

23 June 2014 11:39 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

There are people out there who have never seen The Princess Bride. They walk among us, holding down jobs, contributing to society, and generally living happy, semi-fulfilled lives. But whisper a perfectly-timed “mawage” in their direction during a wedding, and the resulting blank stare or awkward chuckle will expose an inconceivable pop-cultural blind spot. Someone failed them when they were growing up.

In many ways it’s too late for them, but we can still save the next generation. The 55 Essential Movies Kids Must Experience (Before They Turn 13) is a starting point. This isn’t a list of the 55 “best” kids movies, »

22 June 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

True Blood kicked off its seventh and final season Sunday night with Hep-v infected vamps attacking Bon Temps, killing Tara, and Pam traveling the world searching for Eric in “Jesus Gonna Be Here.”

R.I.P Tara

The entire town has gathered at Bellefleur’s Bar and Grill for the ‘One vampire for every human’ mixer, where they are promptly attacked by a group of Hep-v infected vampires. Chaos erupts, with Sam (Sam Trammell) and Alcide (Joe Manganiello) turning into their animal forms to help Bill (Stephen Moyer) and the other vamps fight off the crazed attack. In the chaos, the Hep-v vamps take Arlene (Carrie Preston), Holly (Lauren Bowles) and Nicole (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) hostage, among others, and kill Tara (Rutina Wesley), who was trying to protect her mother.

As suddenly as they appeared, the Hep-v vamps take off with their hostages, leaving the wounded and lost to take refuge inside the bar. »

Casting And Plot Details For The Wachowskis’ Netflix Series Sense8 Have Finally Arrived

21 June 2014 5:24 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Filmmakers Andy and Lana Wachowski have had a rough couple of years, after the disappointing Matrix sequels and a handful of flops like Speed Racer and Cloud Atlas. While they have retained their reputation as unique and visionary filmmakers, they’ve failed to garner much commercial success. Now that they’re next film, Jupiter Ascending, has been delayed by Warner Brothers and moved to the box office deathtrap that is February, they could really use a win. Luckily, they have Netflix’s original series Sense8 up their sleeves, and new details about the 10-episode science fiction epic have finally arrived.

In typical Wachowski fashion, Sense8 will be a globe-trotting sci-fi drama, filled with psychological themes and mind-bending storylines. It also sports a massive 14-member international cast, which we now know consists of Lost alum Naveen AndrewsKill Bill’s Daryl Hannah, Stargate Universe’s Brian J. Smith, British actors Tuppence Middleton »

6 Reasons Disney Needs To Resurrect The John Carter Franchise

21 June 2014 8:10 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In the space of two and a half weeks, spanning from the end of May to the beginning of June, both Taylor Kitsch and Andrew Stanton went on record as saying they were upset that the next two John Carter films weren't happening. While it's sad that these films never came to pass, it's even sadder that Walt Disney Pictures lost out on $200 million on the underperforming blockbuster hopeful of 2012. For a movie that is actually pretty damned good, and also such a lynchpin of science fiction as we know it, to sink faster than the Titanic on fast forward is a real shame. Had this film succeeded, we'd probably be looking at a different cinematic landscape right now: one where Jules Verne and H.G. Wells are freely adapted without shame or fear of internet backlash. And yet, I'm here today to tell you that it is time to »

New Poster For Disney Pixar Short Lava; Inside Out Gets Official Synopsis

19 June 2014 10:22 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Pixar Animation Studios has a lot in store for movie goers and animation enthusiasts during the summer of 2015. The studio has released the official title treatment and synopsis for the upcoming animated feature Inside Out as well as the first poster for the new animated short film Lava.

Disney/Pixar gave La journalists an early sneak preview tonight and by all accounts, the footage shown was stunning.

Inspired by the isolated beauty of tropical islands and the explosive allure of ocean volcanoes, Lava is a musical love story that takes place over millions of years.

From director James Ford Murphy and producer Andrea Warren, Lava opens in theaters in front of Inside Out.

From an adventurous balloon ride above the clouds to a monster-filled metropolis, Academy Award-winning director Pete Docter (“Monsters, Inc.,” “Up”) has taken audiences to unique and imaginative places.

Which movie makes you cry the most? Digital Spy staff picks

19 June 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

In case you haven't heard, The Fault in Our Stars is kind of a sad film. The reaction across the pond (where the film has been out for a couple of weeks) has essentially been one long, drawn out ugly-cry, to the point where Slate have even released a handy guide to keeping your eye make-up intact.

Even the movie's stars Ansel Elgort, Nat Wolff and Laura Dern aren't immune, as they admitted in our video interview. We also asked them what other films have made them cry, which sparked a discussion back in the office about the most effective tearjerkers of all time.

Below, Digital Spy staffers reveal the films that are guaranteed to leave them a weeping mess.
