Con Air: the 90s action film that remains unmatched

7 April 2015 9:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Here's our tribute to one of the best action movies ever made: a story of Nicolas Cage, a plane and a toy bunny...

"Break out the fine china, chill the lemonade, tie a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree. Cos this boy's coming home to his ladies. Coming home forever."

Action cinema changed in 1999. The release of The Matrix unleashed a torrent of imitators, but also altered fundamentally the editing of movies in the genre. This came with a price. Action sequences became harder to follow. Character was relegated. The old style idea of pitting a movie star against some peril in extraordinary circumstances was seemingly less tempting. The Matrix had started something.

Well, that, or everyone just watched Con Air, and figured they couldn't top it. Because in truth, how could they? One of the most quotable, enjoyable and wildly entertaining blockbusters of the 1990s, I can't think »

The Weekend Read: Autism in entertainment from 'Rain Man' to 'Community'

28 March 2015 8:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Weekend Read: Our Saturday essay on the great topics in entertainment and culture today. Last weekend, as Toshi was cruising the Blu-ray shelves for new movies to start asking about, he pulled "Rain Man" on a shelf and considered the cover for a moment before he turned to me, excited. "You didn't tell me Tom Cruise made a superhero movie!" I can only assume his eventual disappointment might be tempered by the fact that "Rain Man" is a pretty good movie. It had been a while since I'd seen it, though, and after they went back to their mom's house, I put it in to watch it. I remember when it came out being right in the midst of my first time watching a lot of classic filmographies, and more than anything, I enjoyed the film as a match-up between Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise. Looking at the film, »

Monica Potter’s NBC Series Shelved

24 March 2015 9:49 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Bad news for Parenthood‘s Monica Potter and Ellen DeGeneres. The duo’s untitled comedy is cancelled or delayed for now. The network has made the big decision to not proceed with the show despite the fact they already announced some stars. The show was supposed to follow Bridget (Potter’s character) who deals with a crazy life that includes 3 ex-husbands. NBC and Warner Bros made a joint choice to hold off on further development until next year-which may or may not happen.

We’re sad by this news as fans of Monica. However, we are not shocked by NBC’s choice. The network has attache itself to many possible series and a few would need to be delayed or canned. However, it is a shame that they chose to do this to a show that was already going along as nicely as this one was. Plus that means a »
