Telltale Announces the Development of a New Episodic Game for HBO's Game Of Thrones

8 December 2013

Telltale Games, the developer behind the critically acclaimed Walking Dead and Fables games, will be working on a new project based on HBO's Game of Thrones which returns for its fourth season in 2014. Summers span decades. Winters can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun. It will stretch from the south, where heat breeds plots, lust and intrigues; to the vast and savage eastern lands; all the way to the frozen north, where an 800-foot wall of ice protects the kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond. Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men...all will play the 'Game of Thrones.' After weeks of speculation, Telltale has confirmed their plans for a game based on the Emmy Award winning fantasy series: "Officially announced today »

The Sound Of Music Live! An Awkward, Agonizing Theatrical Disaster Sponsored by Walmart [Review - ★½]

6 December 2013

Last night after weeks of promotions and a $9 million investment, NBC showed off their live production of The Sound of Music starring Grammy winner Carrie Underwood as the iconic Austrian governess.

The Sound of Music was made famous by the Academy Award winning 1965 film starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer. That's the version everyone knows. That's the version everyone wanted to see. The difference between the two is in minor, but important, details. For example 'My Favorite Things' is sung by Maria at »

By day he made thousands of dollars a minute. By night he spent it as fast as he could, on drugs, sex, and international globe-trotting. From the binge that sank a 170-foot motor yacht, crashed a Gulfstream jet, and ran up a $700,000 hotel tab, to the wife and kids who waited for him at home, and the fast-talking, hard-partying young stockbrokers who called him king and did his bidding, here, in his own inimitable words, is the story of the ill-fated genius they called . . .The Wolf Of Wall Street Directed by Scorsese off a screenplay by Terence Winter, The Wolf of Wall Street stars »
