It hasn't been a banner year for animated movies. The not-as-good-as-the-first-one Despicable Me 2 cleaned up at the box office, while the offerings from the usually reliable Pixar and Ghibli, Monsters University and The Wind Rises, were good rather than great. Even with Disney's remarkable Frozen as a late entry, Wolf Children is easily the best animated movie of 2013.
Director Mamoru Hosoda, who brought us the stunning The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and Summer Wars, finally cracks the mass-appeal code with this beautifully told, thoroughly modern fairytale of a single mother raising her werewolf kids/cubs, emotively mixing fantasy and reality in a way that recalls prime Ghibli output. It packs a lot in: city-dwelling student Hana falling for classmate Ookami, the last in a long line »

"I watched it... it's great. It's watching an actor I really like playing a part I really like and enjoy playing," Cumberbatch told Digital Spy and other journalists.
"And to see him relishing it in similar ways is fantastic. I think he's doing a wonderful job."
Quizzed how he would out-Sherlock his friend, Cumberbatch replied: "There are 78 of us all vying for the position, out-Sherlocking one another. So we're in good company."
After initially admitting to feeling "cynical" about Elementary when it was first announced, Cumberbatch later called the show "fantastic" and urged people to watch. »

Ballots are due Monday for both the SAG Awards and the Golden Globes, so it’s a good time to salute some underdogs in the TV acting categories. (Come to think of it, TV itself is an underdog during the film-centric awards season.)
Year after year, the TV noms include the usual suspects from hit series. And while they deserve the recognition, so do a lot of other terrific actors who are worthwhile but don’t make the cut. So here’s a salute to some talented individuals and ensembles, with a reminder that good work is its own reward. Well, good work and residuals.
It’s not the kind of role that wins awards, because he rarely has scenery-chewing moments. But Harmon’s character and performance are the glue that holds the show together and keep audiences coming back, making it one of TV’s top-rated shows. »

Of course, the idiots are out in full force, too
A case, it can be said (by me, right now), is a lot like life. What can at first seem simple is at times frustrating, maddening and complicated. But in the end will hopefully bring satisfaction to those involved.
The case in point is the sixth episode of Elementary. This week, we have the problems created when someone breaks into Captain Gregson’s home and threatens his wife. This merely opens the door into Gregson’s life and marriage problems, however, and we find this instalment carries with it two dissecting stories, both linked together in differing ways.
With partnership being the theme for this episode, it’s an easy in for Holmes and Watson to start complications of their own. The tension between the two characters, which could long ago have fallen into soap opera levels of melodrama and cliché, »

The first week of November sweeps saw writers on our favorite shows raising their game. Zap2it collected some of the best line of the TV week of Nov. 3 for your viewing pleasure, including quotes from the likes of "The Good Wife," "New Girl" and "The Big Bang Theory." Enjoy!
"You don't realize how overused the word 'breathtaking' is until something actually takes your breath away." -- Scott Pelley, on driving a Lamborghini, on "60 Minutes"
"I am so upset! I'm stuck in a lie." -- Han (Matthew Moy), on "2 Broke Girls"

The ratings for the first season of Elementary weren't all that impressive but CBS renewed it for a second season anyway. Will the numbers improve in season two, stay the same, or fall so the show ends up cancelled? We shall see.
A contemporary update on the Sherlock Holmes stories, Elementary follows the eccentric detective (Jonny Lee Miller) and Doctor Watson (Lucy Liu) as they help solve crimes in New York. Aidan Quinn and Jon Michael Hill round out the cast.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest.

Marvel and Netflix are teaming up for four new superhero series. Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Iron Fist and Luke Cage will each get their own 13-episode series, and “Once all four have made their Netflix debut, they will team up for a miniseries event that reimagines The Defenders, Marvel’s dream team of self-sacrificing, heroic characters.”
Speaking of comics, The CW is developing a series based on iZombie, to be produced by Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas. It “centers on a med student-turned-zombie who takes a job at the coroner’s office to gain access to the brains she must reluctantly eat to maintain her humanity. But with each brain she consumes, she inherits the corpse’s memories, and with the help of her medical examiner boss and a police detective, she solves »

I have made a breakthrough into the international arena because of my collaboration with indie as well as studio-based projects," Tannishtha told Ians in an interview.

There’s nothing new under the sun — but somehow, these awesome properties have never been adapted for screens big or small. Psst, Hollywood: Let’s change that.
Television audiences love a good mythology-heavy, post-apocalyptic, slightly sci-fi survival story — just think Lost, Battlestar Galactica, or The Walking Dead. Yet, Hollywood has failed time and time again to come up with a new idea, and the graveyard of failed ones only continues to add new victims. Let’s go down the list, shall we? The Event. Flashforward. V. Perhaps even Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?
Sure, there’s Revolution and The Walking Dead staking their claims, »

Sherlock Holmes is back. On TV and in London, I mean. He travels with Watson on a case to help an old colleague, reaching the old abode known as 221B, finding that inside everything has been changed. It’s his old home, but the contents have all been swapped out for things a lot more modern.
This week we see the revelation that Holmes, indeed, has a brother. Which isn’t exactly news to anyone that knows the character, but like the previous series, the producers manage to maintain the old by making it new. On the outside, it is indeed the old relationship between Sherlock and Mycroft. But on the inside the characters have changed.
What hasn’t changed (apart from my terrible ways of linking paragraphs) is the quality of performances. Rhys Ifans as Mycroft, while possibly not the »

Football: Arsenal vs Borussia Dortmund
It was given the "…Of Death" mantle by the press, but so far Arsenal have found their Champions League group relatively straightforward, with Marseille and Napoli both overwhelmed by the attacking verve of Arsène Wenger's side. Last season's runners-up, Borussia Dortmund, have had a patchy campaign so far, with a defeat in Naples in their opening group game, but on form should offer the Gunners a genuine test of their European Cup credentials.

Arrow: Monday (October 21) at 8pm on Sky1
Rejoice, because shirtless training montages and scenes featuring blokes in tight-fitting lycra are imminent. Arrow is back and as unapologetically brash as ever, with the almost impossibly manly Stephen Amell returning as playboy-turned-superhero Oliver Queen.
But shockingly, when we return Oliver has decided to give up life as The Hood following the death of his pal Tommy last season and put himself back into exile, just as a vengeful, bloodthirsty gang of copycat vigilantes begin to take control of Starling City. Timing is not his strong point, evidently, but Oliver's still a dab hand at ass-kicking, and there's plenty of it in this opening double bill. »
We almost didn't recognize this style in its second incarnation on Rita Ora, but those strange red and orange flames came flashing back into our mind from Lucy Liu's original appearance. Designer Roberto Cavalli is a big fan of bold prints, and this fabric is no exception. While we appreciate the fall feel in this tweed-meets-baroque look, we're not sure it's working in either the Brit pop star's skirt suit or the TV detective's cocktail dress. The problem with Rita's version of the look is the problem with Rita's version of most looks—it's just too much. A simple, black blouse under the patterned jacket and skirt would be less offensive, as would a way more normal »
Some of our favorite TV characters are often unlucky in love. They just can’t seem to find The One — but what if The One is on another show altogether?
As the saying goes, opposites attract. As another saying goes, birds of a feather flock together. And as one last saying goes, couples who solve crimes together, die together.
