The Third Annual Yulies: Let's celebrate the absurdity of holiday TV movies!

23 December 2010 12:29 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

There you are, all curled up on the sofa, holding a mug of hot cocoa with one hand, knitting an unsightly reindeer sweater with the other. Your tree is twinkling, your fireplace is glowing, and your neighbors are caroling semi-competently on your snow-dusted lawn. Is there anything that could make this scene more festive? You bet your sweet chestnuts there is. The holidays aren’t officially the holidays until we gorge ourselves on the buffet of new Christmas TV movies served up around this time of year. Are they corny? Like an Iowa farm. Predictable? You can set your watch »

Teen Heartthrobs and McG ‘Aim High’

30 November 2010 9:23 AM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Nick Green is a government operative, part of an elite, covert force of 64 highly trained U.S. military personnel. He's a deadly assassin with an appreciation for blondes and a dislike for their overprotective boyfriends. And he's a junior in high school. Green must carefully balance innate, 17-year-old hormones and teenage drama while executing his hits. So goes the premise for Aim High, a web series from executive producer Peter Murrietta, producer McG, creators Heath Corson and Richie Keen, and financiers Warner Premiere and Dolphin Entertainment. The program - which is one of three upcoming online originals from Warner Bros. short-form digital content arm - just announced its cast list will feature a number of actors popular with the teenybopper crowd. Jackson Rathbone (Jackson Hale in the Twilight Saga) will take on the role of Green. Aimee Teegarden (Julie Taylor on Friday Night Lights) will play the object of Green's affections, »

Ione Skye, Santa Claus, and asymmetric warfare: Happy Holidays!

29 September 2010 11:56 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Santa Claus getting captured and delayed is a common theme in holiday movies. The Hallmark Channel original The Santa Incident (premiering Dec. 7), makes it… interesting. The Homeland Security Asymmetrical Threats Division has mistaken Santa (James Cosmo, currently playing Father Ashby on Sons of Anarchy) as an alien craft and repeatedly tried to shoot him down to no avail. Finally, a heat-seeking missile connects and Santa crashes to Earth, where he is rescued by a couple of kids and nursed back to health by their mom, Say Anything…’s Ione Skye.

With shooting set to begin in Baton Rouge next week, it's no surprise that the cast of Flypaper is coming together fast.

DVD Playhouse—April 2010

By

Allen Gardner

Ride With The Devil (Criterion) Ang Lee’s revisionist take on the Civil War is awash in moral ambiguity, along with some stunning cinematography, production design, and fine performances. Set during the Kansas-Missouri border war, Tobey Maguire and Skeet Ulrich star as two friends who join up with the Confederate-sympathizing Bushwhackers, finding an odd ally in a former slave (Jeffrey Wright). While it’s fascinating to see America’s bloodiest conflict through the eyes of a foreigner, thereby allowing much of the previously mentioned ambiguity a certain latitude, the film never loses the bad taste it leaves for one simple reason: it asks us, the audience, to side with not just the Confederates, but some of the lowest trash that made up the dregs, and the fringes, of the movement. Big points for audacity, but snake eyes on the story itself. Singer Jewel is impressive in her film debut. »
