The Best Green Things In Movies and TV

16 March 2015 11:26 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  On this day, we honor the culture of the Emerald Isle by adorning ourselves in its hues.   But green is not just the color of holiday-themed accessories. It also has an illustrious history of playing critical roles in our films and television programs. Below are some of the greatest appearances green has made on our screens.  Erin go bragh!  – All the way to the box office! 17. The Curtains in "Sound of Music"   What better way to introduce a family of neglected children to the concept of fun clothes than with a little splash of green, even if it is from the furniture. 16. The Green Man in “Always Sunny in Philadelphia" Green may not be proud of Paddy's pub, but Paddy's is proud of it. 15. Luke’s lightsaber in “Return of the Jedi. For episode six, Skywalker’s blue lightsaber got an extreme makeover. Two green thumbs way up! »

Throwback Thursday – Go Back In Time With These Eight Essential Sci-fi Films

Article by Beth Kelly

Science fiction, by its very nature, seeks to innovate in storytelling. Restricted only by the boundaries of their imaginations and the limits inherent to their craft, filmmakers of this genre use complex cinematic effects and fantastical plotlines to create worlds outside time. These films are notable for their craftsmanship as well as their embedded social and political messages, which later serve as reflections of the time periods during which they were produced. For enthusiasts of film, culture, and recent American history, classic science fiction movies provide a window into the past while predicting the course of society’s future

1. Metropolis (1927)

At date of its release this was the most expensive silent film ever made. Unfortunately, in the time since its initial debut in Weimar Germany, nearly a quarter of the original film has been lost. Legendary German director Fritz Lang, a notorious control freak, used inventive »

The Walking Dead season five episode 12: Remember – recap

2 March 2015 6:57 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Rick and his crew return to the civilisation of Alexandria, but have been so damaged by their experiences that they can no longer fit in

Spoiler alert: this blog is published after The Walking Dead airs on AMC in the Us on Sundays. Do not read on unless you have watched season five, episode 12 (which airs in the UK on Fox on Mondays)

Recently, watching The Walking Dead has been an incredibly tense experience. We’re so attuned to every positive situation having awful consequences that we are constantly braced for something horrible to happen. When Rick and the crew finally get past the gate into Alexandria, with its model homes and perfectly manicured lawns, we’re looking behind the doors to see whether there is a psychopath running the whole thing, or inspecting the labels in the pantry to see if the tins contain the same ingredients as Soylent Green. »

Netflix Chief Says 4-Hour Cut Of 'Cloud Atlas' "Will Blow You Away"; Wachowskis Doubt They'll Get Big Studio Budgets Again

10 February 2015 6:04 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Even though the following quote appeared before "Jupiter Ascending" massively tanked last weekend, perhaps the Wachowskis had already seen the writing on the wall. Their latest cinematic effort reportedly cost well over $175 million, which is franchise money for studios these days, but the duo were using it to spin a tale about a space man-dog, a Russian janitor princess, and something involving Soylent Green. Critics largely savaged it, audiences were disinterested, and the Wachowskis realize that may have been their last time playing with a couple hundred million dollars on the studio level for a while. “Everyone says, ‘Why can’t you be simpler?’ We’re drawn toward difficult subjects, like the disparity of rich and poor,” Lana Wachowski told The Wall Street Journal last month. “We’ve been lucky. People at studios have been interested in our crazy, strange brand of complexity. And we’ve been allowed to keep making them. »
