Deconstructing the decade from 'Buffy' and beyond: Zap2it Hanh's favorite episodes

25 December 2009 10:30 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Zap2it's favorite TV episodes of the decade series continues with my picks for what moved me in the 2000s.

Let me preface my list with a shout out to my colleague Rick, who kicked off the series with numerous excellent examples, ranging from "The Wire" to "Freaks and Geeks." I actually agreed with quite a number of his selections, but since this is a very personal endeavor, full of unfounded opinions, naturally I must include some episodes I feel he overlooked or at least didn't value as much as I.

Case in point: Joss Whedon. Really, Rick? How could an episode of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" not even make your main list and only warrant an "also" mention? Hmph.

My list:

"The Body" ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer")

Although "Hush" and its creepy Gentlemen freaked me out (and earned "Buffy" its only writing Emmy nom), it aired in December 1999, just »

Ventimiglia Moves On From Panettiere

24 December 2009 4:06 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Milo Ventimiglia has moved on from his relationship with his Heroes co-star Hayden Panettiere - he's reportedly dating a Hollywood talent agent.

The actor split from the 20-year-old beauty in February after a year-long onset romance.

Panettiere has since been linked to British TV presenter Steve Jones, as well as Lindsay Lohan's ex-boyfriend Harry Morton.

And now it seems Ventimiglia, 32, has moved on from the split as well after he was snapped with his arms around Isabella Brewster, an employee of Hollywood's CAA talent agency, during an outing in Santa Monica, California on Sunday.

Brewster is the younger sister of model Jordana Brewster. »

Armored Review

6 December 2009 1:13 PM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Short Version: The good news is: If you like to walk in, sit down and enjoy an action film, then Armored is for you. The bad news is: If you’ve seen the trailer, then you can walk in 45 minutes late and not miss a thing.

Screen Rant’s Paul Young reviews Armored

Every once in a while a movie comes out of nowhere that totally catches me by surprise. Black Dog, Hard Rain and Deep Rising are still three of my favorite mid-budget action flicks that got very little advertising or respect but managed to be very enjoyable in the theaters. All three also made into my DVD library – and now Armored will join them on my shelf.

There are some minor spoilers in the following review.

Nimrod Antal, the guy directing Predators, has done a very good job of making Armored fun and interesting without blowing it way over-the-top. »

‘Armored’ Movie Delivered A Lot Of Action & Edge Of Your Seat Drama

5 December 2009 7:49 PM, PST | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

'Armored' Movie delivered a lot of action & edge of your seat drama. Screen Gems released it's new action/thriller flick, "Armored," this weekend. It was a lot better than I thought it would be. It had some great intense action scenes. It stars: Matt Dillon, Jean Reno, Laurence Fishburne, Skeet Ulrich, Amaury Nolasco, Andre Jamal Kinney, Milo Ventimiglia, Fred Ward, and Columbus Short "Armored" mainly focused around Columbus Short's character, Ty Hackett. He served in the army,and his parents had just recently died,leaving him with a burdening double mortgage and a younger teenage brother to take care of. He's now working as a guard for a an armored truck security company,transporting currency. The turning point of the film,of course, occurs when his pal Mike Cochrone (Matt Dillon) offers him the opportunity to heist about $42 million dollars on one of their truck runs. »

Review: Armored

5 December 2009 12:10 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Armored is easily one of the dullest action films I’ve ever seen in my entire life. The story is bland, the characters are uninteresting and worst of all, it’s just plain lazy. Armored is about a young war veteran Ty (Columbus Short), and his younger brother Jimmy (Andre Kinney), who’s parents have passed away in the last year. Ty has taken it upon himself to get a job and take care of his younger broth. Ty’s job is that of an armored truck guard. He helps move large amounts of money from one place to another. He got the job because his father worked at the company, Eagle Shield Security, as does his godfather Mike (Matt Dillon). The biggest problem in Ty’s life is that he’s just not making enough money and the bank is threatening to take his house.

When Armored starts, Ty is just a rookie, »

Box Office: Who Will Win the Weekend?

4 December 2009 3:05 PM, PST | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

As we enter another weekend at the box office (and the first of the month of December), the question on everyone’s mind is whether The Twilight Saga: New Moon can somehow pull off another win, putting it in the top spot three weeks in a row. Don’t get me wrong, it’s totally possible this week since there’s really not a whole lot of juicy big-screen entertainment. Here’s what we’re looking at … Armored What’s The Scoop: A heist flick that follows a group of armored car drivers who decide to team up and plot to rob a truck carrying $42 million. Why It Might Win The Weekend: We haven’t had a cool heist flick in awhile, and while the cast is most definitely B-list (Matt Dillon, Laurence Fishburne, Amaury Nolasco, Milo Ventimiglia)...

4 December 2009 11:32 AM, PST | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

"Armored" movie got a couple of good reviews despite critic shutout. Apparently Screen Gems shut most of the movie critics out from pre-screening their new action/thriller flick, "Armored." However, a couple of critics did get a chance to watch it,and post some reviews. They turned out to be pretty good. It hit theaters today,and it stars : Matt Dillon, Jean Reno, Laurence Fishburne, Skeet Ulrich, Amaury Nolasco, Andre Jamal Kinney, Milo Ventimiglia, Fred Ward, and Columbus Short. Brian Orndorf of Brianorndorf.com gave it 3 stars out of 4. He said, "Armored" isn't the most logical cinematic submission of the year, but I'm not sure I would want it to be." Emanuel Levy from Emanuellevy.com gave 2 and a half stars out of 4. He stated, "A minor, unspectacular, utterly forgettable flick when it's over, "Armored" is nevertheless outrageously entertaining, serving a living proof that there is still juice to »

‘Legion of Extraordinary Dancers’ Blows Up Fox

2 December 2009 11:43 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Wowzas. We've been hot on Jon M. Chu's upcoming dance-laden web series The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers for a while now, but this is getting to a new level. The group appeared tonight on Fox's So You Think You Can Dance, and blew away the competition. These guys are Amazing. Seriously, watch the clip above from the show. (right now) We're starting to think this could be the first truly international blockbuster web series. And now that Paramount Digital has jumped on board with Agility Studios for a major online distribution push, it just might get there. No Special effects. No Wires. Real People, Real powers. We call this project The Lxd. “The Lxd allows us to evolve how we tell stories using dance while creating a platform for the best dancers in the world to do what they do best,” said Jon M. Chu.

5 Movie Clips from Armored

2 December 2009 6:54 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Armored may not a blockbuster extravaganza filled with Hollywood’s biggest stars, but from what I’ve seen, it looks like a tight little action-thriller and that’s good enough for me.  I am hoping it’s good because you don’t want this film to be a travesty and then face the fact that director Nimrod Antal is going to be making Predators.  Still, I have faith and hopefully these five new clips from the film will inspire some faith in you as well.

Hit the jump to check out the clips along with a brief synopsis.  Armored hits theaters on December 4th.

For those just tuning in, here’s a brief synopsis:

A crew of armored truck guards execute a meticulously planned robbery of their own security firm, but when their seemingly foolproof plan unravels, the men turn against each other as they desperately try to save themselves. »

Milo Ventimiglia's death doubts

2 December 2009 12:00 AM, PST | Virgin Media - Movies | See recent Virgin Media - Movies news »

Milo Ventimiglia spent the whole of 'Armored' thinking about his own death. The actor couldn't stop thinking about his own mortality when his on-screen alter-ego Officer Eckhart faced several life or death situations on the big screen. He said: ''The majority of the film I'm in the back of an armoured car lying, dying, wailing, crying, thinking about my own morality. He's a mess, but this is the worst where I'm at. ''Dirty, bloody and half-way dead. My character Officer Eckhart responds to a siren. When getting to the location, he thinks he hears the siren and the siren goes off. He gets himself .. »

International Trailer: Armored

1 December 2009 10:56 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Here’s the new international trailer for a movie that I’ve not heard too much about since we posted the first trailer a poster a while back on HeyUGuys V1.0. It’s called Armored and it’s about a group of security workers who drive armoured trucks around. One day, one of them gets the bright idea that they could heist their own lorry and get away with the taking but it’s never that easy.

Armored has an all-star cast whic includes Matt Dillon, Jean Reno, Laurence Fishburne, Amaury Nolasco, Fred Ward, Milo Ventimiglia and is directed by

MSN Picks Up Milo Ventimiglia’s ‘Ultradome’ for Parallel Universe

30 November 2009 4:08 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Milo Ventimiglia wants to further intellectual debate for the Comic-Con crowd. Back in May, the Heroes' hotshot told us about teaming up with Agility Studios for the web series Ultradome. The program pits comic and sci-fi fanboys against one another in a virtual octagon, where two individuals debate timeless topics like, "Would Harry Potter or Neo win in a fight?" and "Who's the cooler vampire? Count Chocula or Lestat?" It's basically the same premise as a classic Van Damme flick, re-engineered for the online set. You can imagine Don Lafontaine's voice explaining: "Two geeks enter. They Debate. One geek leaves." Last time we spoke with Ventimiglia, Ultradome was without a release date or distribution partner. Now that's changed. MSN tell us they recently struck a deal to distribute the series and are shooting for a late-January premiere. Joe Michaels, Senior Director at MSN Business Development, explained to me »

Behind the Scenes of Armored with Milo Ventimiglia

30 November 2009 5:00 AM, PST | movies.about.com | See recent About.com Hollywood Movies news »

Milo Ventimiglia's no stranger to action scenes, which is a good thing as the thriller Armored is all about the action. Ventimiglia's starring role as Peter Petrelli in Heroes keeps him in good shape and although the action in Armored is a lot less fantastical than that of Heroes, the two projects have a lot in common. "I treat it the same," said Ventimiglia on the film's set. "We do a lot of stunts. There is a lot of blood on Heroes and I'm pretty comfortable with it." Read On...

5 Sneak Peeks & Promo – Heroes 4.11 "Thanksgiving"

17 November 2009 4:41 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

I guess the Heroes writers were going for the obvious with this episode title, instead of trying to come up with something more subtle.  The November 23rd episode is Thanksgiving-centric and our two main families (the Bennetts and the Petrellis) come together with some big confrontations (for example, the fact that Nathan and Peter now know what their mother did with Nathan's body and Sylar).  We've got 5 sneak peeks for you, along with a promo.

Thanksgiving Unites Families Together And Brings New Revelations

H.R.G. (Jack Coleman) hosts an untraditional Thanksgiving dinner. Elsewhere, the Petrelli family gets a surprise guest at their table. Meanwhile, Samuel (Robert Knepper) continues to hold Hiro (Masi Oka) hostage, as Lydia (guest star Dawn Olivieri) goes in search for the truth.

Greg Grunberg, Hayden Panettiere, Adrian Pasdar, Zachary Quinto, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Cristine Rose and Milo Ventimiglia also star. Ashley Crow, Jimmy Jean-Louis, Madeline Zima, »
