10 sequels that ignored previous films

26 February 2015 8:15 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

In the wake of the Alien 5 news, here are 10 franchise sequels that also ignored at least one previous film.

We all have moments in our lives we'd prefer to forget, and so too do filmmakers. So what do you do when a movie franchise starts to go off the rails? Simple, just forget that the lesser films in the series never happened.

News recently broke that director Neill Blomkamp's taking this approach to the Alien universe. Recent interviews with both he and returning star Sigourney Weaver have revealed that Blomkamp's forthcoming sequel will not necessarily follow the events of Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection, and pick up the story from Aliens instead (although he has since given a brief update on that).

Of course, we'll have to wait and see exactly how all this pans out. But it's by no means the first time in history that a film's »

10 Films You Didn’t Realise Buffyverse Actors Were In

18 February 2015 8:20 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

EuropaCorp

It has now been 11 years since the Buffyverse came to an end (as far as its television shows were concerned, at least). Buffy The Vampire Slayer saw its final episode aired in 2003, while Angel saw its last episode air one year later – and fans of the shows still miss them both to this day.

One of the key reasons behind the popularity of the two shows was undoubtedly the characters. A talented group of regular cast members and supporting actors brought to life some of the weirdest, wackiest, funniest and most interesting characters anybody could ever wish for in a television series and many of them have gone on to obtain further success in Hollywood (and some of them had actually already made their mark in the world of film).

While it’s hard not to notice the likes of Sarah Michelle Gellar in films like The Grudge, Alyson Hannigan »

Complete Buffy reviews: Something Blue

29 January 2015 9:29 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

If you paid attention to your Gcse science – unlikely, I know – then you may remember all that jazz about magnets. In particular, the weird way in which two like-for-like magnet poles repel each other rather than attach.

Having just flicked through the Ladybird Guide To Science For Five-Year-Olds (I was always rubbish at science), I'm reminded of this notion when reviewing the Buffy and Angel episodes back to back. While Angel has generally gone all dark and broody, lately, quite a few of the episodes of Buffy The Vampire Slayer have gone the other way. We've had the brain-dead pointlessness of Beer Bad, the half Thanksgiving tutorial/half Buffy's Kitchen antics of Pangs, and now, along comes Something Blue, an episode that at times threatens to take tweeness to the max.

In a way, Buffy The Vampire Slayer's gradual leaning towards frothy storytelling makes sense. It's still a »

Complete Buffy reviews: The initiative

27 January 2015 12:45 PM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

The Initiative arguably marks a new phase of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Oz has left the building, casting off yet another of the early years remnants. Only Buffy, Xander, Willow and Giles remain – although James Marsters finally graduates to full-time member and reluctant hanger-on of the Scooby Gang. It's also the story where squeaky-clean curtain head Riley starts to fit into the puzzle. Which can only mean that the series reveals what all these mysterious Commandos are all about.

With the dawning of a new era, both in this season and of the whole show, it's mysterious that The Initiative episode is a bit flat. I guess that any episode which revolves around a bunch of dull army goons wouldn't ever score highly on my list of quintessential ways to spend 45 minutes with the telly. Army and sci-fi rarely go together well, resulting in lots of tedious gun battles and laughable machismo. »

Review: 'Unexpected' is slight, but Cobie Smulders and Gail Bean shine

26 January 2015 2:25 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The "How I Met Your Mother" Redemption Tour is in full effect at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Jason Segel has received the best reviews of his career for his gimmick-free performance as David Foster Wallace in "The End of The Tour." Cobie Smulders is proving her mettle as a leading lady in "Unexpected." And Josh Radnor is nowhere to be seen with a follow-up to "Liberal Arts." [Sorry. Easy punchline. I actually thought "Happythankyoumoreplease" was a perfectly respectable sign of Radnor's potential as a writer-director.] Meanwhile, Neil Patrick Harris has been too busy winning Tonys and preparing to host the Oscars to be in anything Sundance-y this year, while Alyson Hannigan remains chronically underused. Smulders also stars in "Results," which premieres at Sundance on Tuesday, but at least her Festival got off to a solid start with "Unexpected." Directed by Kris Swanberg, who co-wrote with Megan Mercier, "Unexpected" is a very slight movie, almost absurdly short »

Blog: Why How I Met Your Mother is a tribute to Bollywood

24 January 2015 1:11 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

As someone who is a huge admirer of Bollywood cinema, I also happen to be a big fan of Us sitcoms. I have seen many great shows from beginning to end that include Friends, Frasier, Everybody Loves Raymond and of course How I Met Your Mother. Although the classic TV show ended last year, I only recently finished watching the final season where the male lead Ted Mosby (played by Josh Radnor) ultimately ends up with the love of his life Robin Scherbatsky (played bv Cobie Smulders). As someone who happens to be a fan of both Bollywood and Us sitcoms, I cannot help but notice that How I Met Your Mother is ultimately a tribute to all the love stories that are told in the world of Bollywood. It is something which I have rarely seen in a Us television show before, but How I Met Your Mother has »

10 Things You Didn’t Know About ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’

19 January 2015 6:01 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Buffy the Vampire Slayer made vampires cool long before there was True Blood or the Twilight saga. It also helped jump-start the careers of Sarah Michelle Gellar, Alyson Hannigan, and David Boreanaz. The series, created by Joss Whedon, left the airwaves in May 2003, but there still continues to be a cult following for the series. The drama was so popular that a spin-off was created in 1999 for fan favorite character Angel. The series would continue in the form of comic book due to still being so popular. An eighth and ninth season comic book series of the show was made beginning in 2007 and a tenth season will came out in comic form last year. Here are ten other fascinating facts about the teenager who killed vampires while also trying to pass Biology that you may not know.  1. Sarah Michelle Gellar as a witch?! When Sarah Michelle Gellar was auditioning for Buffy the Vampire… »
