You ain’t slick, Grey’s Anatomy. This week, the show tried to move us past the shock of Derek’s death and the “aww” of Ellis’ birth by distracting us with another of the mega-calamities for which the series is infamous. But did it work? Read on, then we’ll discuss.

Great werewolf films are hard to find these days. The lycanthrope playing field is typically filled to the brim with bad CGI transformations and it’s a subgenre that just deserves better. Neil Marshall (The Descent, TV’s Black Sails, Constantine)’s 2002 films, Dog Soldiers, was just that kind of werewolf film that resonated with horror fans, and quickly became somewhat of a cult horror classic.
The gang over at Scream Factory obviously agree, because hitting shelves on June 23rd, is a brand new Collector’s Edition Bluray/DVD combo of the werewolf classic, complete with an extensive amount of brand new special features, and even featuring Marshall’s early short film, Combat.
A group of soldiers dispatched to the Scottish Highlands on special training maneuvers face their biggest fears after they run into Captain Ryan – the only survivor of a Special Ops team that was literally torn to pieces. »

Nearly 13 years ago, a British Army unit discovered what lives in the shadows in Neil Marshall's feature film directorial debut, Dog Soldiers, and this summer Scream Factory is revisiting what that doomed group encountered with their Dog Soldiers Collector’s Edition Blu-ray / DVD. First announced in 2013, the anticipated release has been pushed back more than once to ensure it's the best possible final version. At long last, the beloved werewolf film will come out on June 23rd and it will be well worth the wait, as the newly revealed special features are enough to make horror hounds drool and howl at the moon with pleasure.

Since becoming America’s Sweetheart across the span of about four rom-coms, Katherine Heigl’s stock hasn’t exactly plummeted. Then again, it’s not been on the rise. Instead, it’s hovered indecisively while she committed to NBC’s latest drama, State Of Affairs. Whether she’s heading back to TV for the long haul or just waiting for a new movie direction, her performance in Home Sweet Hell hints at future in B-movies.
Directed by Anthony Burns (Skateland), the film stars Heigl as obsessive compulsive housewife, Mona, who makes her husband’s existence a living hell after she discovers he’s been unfaithful. Her poor spouse, a long-suffering furniture salesman named Don (Patrick Wilson), isn’t subjected to the normal ranting and raving of a wronged woman. Instead, Mona forces him to kill his pregnant mistress (Jordana Brewster), otherwise… well, if she’s making him commit homicide, then »

It may have been a while since Grey's Anatomy aired its winter finale, but don't worry - the doctors of Grey Sloane Memorial still relate way too much to the traumas that get wheeled in to the ER. April (Sarah Drew) and Jackson (Jesse Williams) were still reeling after learning that their unborn baby has a fatal condition, and Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) was as hot-and-cold about her relationship with Derek (Patrick Dempsey) as ever. However, she may have found a new Person. Or, well, a suitable stand-in, anyway. Also, as ever, Dr. Herman (Geena Davis) is not here for anyone's Bs. »

After giving viewers some time to catch their breath, Shonda Rhimes’ “Tgit” lineup returns to ABC on Thursday, January 29.
It’s going to be tough to top the first half of the season, which featured Smelly Melly, orgasmic theft, sex moves that make your eyes water and the mother of all cliffhangers – Olivia Pope’s disappearance.

Grey’s Anatomy‘s Callie Torres was angling to have a second baby (via adoption), until her already tenuous marriage to Arizona Robbins crumbled to pieces this fall.
And for so long, Owen Hunt lobbied Cristina Yang to start a family, only to be rebuffed every step of the way — right up until his ex-wife left Seattle for greener pastures in Zurich.
Might Callie (who’s bisexual) and Owen, each now quite eligible and regularly working side-by-side at Grey+Sloan, ultimately come together as a couple, and satisfy their common want?

"This has been a long time coming," said Boyle. "There’s always been this long term plan for Trainspotting 2', if John can produce a decent enough script. I don’t think there will be any barriers to Ewan or any of the cast coming back.
"I think they’ll want to know that the parts are good so they don’t feel like they are letting anyone down. The reason for doing it again is that people cherish the original, people remember it or have caught up with it if they never saw because they were younger. So you want to »

This article contains spoilers for Toy Story 3.
It seems to have become surprisingly tough to keep an open mind about Toy Story 4. Pixar have a mostly excellent track record in these things, especially when it comes to the Toy Story series. We struggle to think of a more consistently brilliant trilogy of films, so why were so many upset about the very real possibility of a fourth, also brilliant instalment, when it was announced last year?
Although some would cite the Cars films, or the impossible and yet still disappointing expectation that Monsters University would live up to Monsters Inc, it doesn't come down to anything so jaded. In all of the ways that Toy Story 3 is an excellent film, it's mostly because it feels like a near unimprovable conclusion to the series. »
Every week, Shelf Life sees Tom White select and talk about a movie that lives on his DVD shelf, one he thinks we should all see. If werewolf movies ever had a heyday, it was the 1980's, with An American Werewolf in London and The Howling showing off the best of what this particular sub-genre had to offer. Other than those two classics, it hasn't fared that well though. An American Werewolf in Paris was an unwanted horror sequel (surprise, surprise), and two high profile attempts to kick start the werewolf movie again, Wolf and The Wolfman, just fell flat. But in 2002, a movie came in under every ones radar that really embraced all the fun a werewolf movie can offer. I am, of course, talking about Neil Marshall's Dog Soldiers. With Luxembourg standing in for the Scottish Highlands, Dog Soldiers sees British soldier Cooper (Kevin McKidd) and the »
