We take a close look at 2001's Swordfish, and pinpoint the crucial lessons that wannabe computer programmers can take from it.
What follows gets quite geeky at times. We should point out that this is very much a tongue in cheek look at the film, rather than a desire to see filmmakers correct programming errors!
The first few minutes of Swordfish, once Travolta has hit us with this revelation, proceed to dissect the all-time classic Dog Day Afternoon, whilst Travolta chomps on a cigar and looks pleased with the arrangement of his facial hair. There's not much of it, but it's still a point of pride to the man.
As for the film itself? »
Even the biggest fans of BBC Three would have to admit that it's made some total duds. However, the portrayal of BBC Three as the home for trash teen TV isn't fair.
Yes, it's dared to try new things and occasionally made some blunders, but there's much more to the channel than Snog, Marry, Avoid and docs about teens shagging on holiday.
Following reports that BBC Three is going to be the big casualty of fresh budget cuts at the corporation, celebs and stars have already started campaigning on Twitter to ensure the future of the channel.
If you think it's just celebrities trying to save their jobs, why not check out our list of BBC Three's greatest achievements? It might just get you using the #saveBBCThree hashtag.

With all the hoopla about the big Sunday night movie award show, many of you might not have gotten the list of the big winners from Saturday night’s big movie awards show. I’m talking about the 34th Annual Razzie Awards. They were started in 1980 by John Wilson to celebrate the movie year’s worst achievements. The hour-long ceremony was held this past Saturday evening down the street from the site of Sunday’s big show. Without further ado, here’s the nominees and winners for the 2013 film year:
Worst Remake, Rip-off, Or Sequel:
- Jim Batts
Awards season comes to a head tonight as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences presents the winners of the Academy Awards, and - as is traditional - yesterday saw the very worst of cinematic achievement celebrated with the 34th annual Golden Raspberry Awards.
While Adam Sandler dominated the nominations (as usual) with Grown Ups 2, the Razzie favourite went away empty handed for a change as the ensemble comedy Movie 43 and M. Night Shyamalan sci-fi After Earth picked up three gongs apiece, with Movie 43 claiming Worst Picture, Worst Director(s) and Worst Screenplay and Jaden Smith and Will Smith named Worst Actor, Worst Supporting Actor and Worst Screen Combo.
Check out the full list of nominees here, with the "winners" highlighted in red....

The results are in, the envelopes have been opened, and the "winners" of the 34th Razzie Awards have been unveiled in ceremonies held at Hollywood's coolest new venue - just down the street from Sunday night's Oscars - IgnitedSpaces. The hour long show handed out at least one statuette to four of the five Worst Picture nominees, but Adam Sandler and his unfunny follow up Grown Ups 2 went home empty-handed.
Taking three of the top awards was the star-studded, snicker-free sketch comedy Movie 43, which "won" for Worst Screenplay (written by at least 19 people), Worst Director ("credited" to 13 people), and Worst Picture. Tying with 43, and also "winning" 3 gold spray-painted trophies, was the Will Smith and Jaden Smith sci-fi fiasco After Earth. Dad Will Smith took Worst Supporting Actor, son Jaden Smith was named Worst Lead Actor, and the combination of father & son, described in the ceremony as being "stranded »
Right before the Academy Awards announces its winners, the 34th Annual Razzie Awards has unveiled the list of its own winners for the worst achievement in film for 2013. Taking the prize for the Worst Picture of the year is "Movie 43," beating out such films as "After Earth," "Grown Ups 2," "The Lone Ranger" and "A Madea Christmas." The movie also won for Worst Director and Worst Screenplay. The theme of this year's Razzies focused on the Smith family, with Jaden Smith winning Worst Actor and Will Smith winning for Worst Supporting Actor for "After Earth." The father-son team also won in the Worst Screen Combo category. The only good news is that Adam Sandler and his "Grown Ups 2" went some how ignored, despite dominating the awards show for two straight years. Check out the full list of nominees and winners (in red) below. Worst Picture: * Movie 43 * After Earth »
Glamour! Elegance! The sweet smell of self-congratulation! None will be present at the 34th annual Razzie Awards, a proudly low-budget event dedicated to dishonoring the previous year’s worst movies. (Actually, make that “no-budget”; have you seen the Razzies’ website? It looks like a Geocities page from 1996.)
There are several strong contenders in this year’s Razzies race, from father-and-son team Will and Jaden Smith to perennial “winner” Adam Sandler and Golden Raspberry Award Foundation favorite Sylvester Stallone, who snagged a record-breaking 31st nomination for his work in three 2013 films. (Note: It is not hard to become a member of the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation. »

Well, friends, as you can tell from the title, this episode’s a mouthful. We hit the 350-Like threshold on Facebook a few weeks ago, and you know what that means: time for another b-b-b-b-b-b-b-bonus episode! This time, per Gabe’s suggestion, your intrepid co-hosts tackle not one, not two, but three movies, all from the now-Disney-owned Lucasfilm: Willow, Ewoks: The Battle for Endor, and Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure. Yes, really, these are movies that we sat down and watched willingly. (Ok, some less willingly than others.) And, as you might expect from a bonus show, this one’s full of goofy tangents as well as a few impersonations. Listen carefully, and you’ll hear Josh impersonate Wilford Brimley, and Gabe may even impersonate…Taylor Lautner? Yup. Now go forth on your own caravan of courage and check out the new show!

The long-gestating Tupac Shakur biopic has spent the years being swapped back and forth between “Training Day” director Antoine Fuqua and “Boyz n the Hood” director John Singleton, but now it appears the film has finally found its helmer. THR reports Singleton—who originally left the project in 2011—has officially signed on to the project and will not only direct the biopic but also produce and rewrite the the script. Per the trade, Singleton “will begin working on a draft of the screenplay immediately, with an eye toward a summer start date.” Though he started his career making critically acclaimed films focused on life in the inner city—Singleton was the youngest person to ever be nominated for Best Director and the first African-American to boot—his work in the new millennium has had a clear commercial bent with films like “2 Fast 2 Furious” and the Taylor Lautner franchise non-starter “Abduction. »

Singleton announced the news on twitter, saying: “The time has come to tell your story. I promise to keep it real and true to your sould. Bigg Js50 Niggaaz/Thug Life.”
The film follows the rapper’s rise to being one of the most popular MCs as well as his increased participation in the East Coast-West Coast Rap rivalry, and his death on September 7, 1996 when he was gunned down on a street corner in Las Vegas, where he died 6 days later. His murder was never solved.
“Tupac was the guy who I planned to do a lifetime of films with,” Singleton said. “His passing deeply affected my life as well as countless people in this world. His life story is as important to my generation.”

Samberg looked like he was on a mission in a pair of gray pants, a blue and black-checkered shirt and leather jacket. In Brooklyn Nine-Nine, the Saturday Night Live alum plays Detective Jake Peralta. He won a Golden Globe for his performance as the law enforcement agent last month.
Possibly due to his busy schedule filming Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Samberg will no longer appear in the BBC comedy Cuckoo. He’s being replaced by Twilight star Taylor Lautner, who’ll join Greg Davies and Helen Baxendale on the show. Towards the end of the first season, Samberg’s character Cuckoo disappeared into the Himalayas.
"Cuckoo was one of BBC3's most stand-out comedies, so I'm delighted to welcome it back with the »
Writer-director John Singleton defined urban drama with films like Boyz n the Hood, Poetic Justice, and Higher Learning, but his reputation took a serious hit in 2011 with the major misfire Abduction. The Taylor Lautner-fronted thriller was a box office flop that was totally loathed by critics. Now, Singleton is looking to turn his flailing career around by helming the long in-development Tupac biopic. Variety reports Morgan Creek has signed up Singleton to produce, direct and rewrite the Untitled Tupac Shakur Biopic. The movie is expected to follow the rise of the rap star to fame, fortune and controversy. Then, it will conclude with his untimely murder at the age of 25. Speaking out about this opportunity, Singleton told Variety: "Tupac was the guy who I planned to do a lifetime of films with. His passing deeply affected my life as well as countless people in this world." Fans might recall »
John Singleton has signed on to rewrite, direct and produce an untitled biopic of the late rapper/actor Tupac Shakur. Morgan Creek is financing in collaboration with Randall Emmett and George Furla's Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films. He will begin working on a draft of the screenplay immediately, with an eye toward a summer start date. With Singleton's involvement, the long-stalled project is getting a second life. Antoine Fuqua was attached to the project before falling off. Singleton also was loosely onboard as recently as two years ago, but his deal never closed, and he turned his attentions to the Taylor Lautner starrer Abduction. The
