If you want my opinion (which clearly you do, since you’re reading this article), Kingdom Hearts is an amazing game series! A heartfelt adventure that shows friendship is the strongest magic there is. What do you want from me?! I’m a sucker for sappy Disney stories! This past month I’ve been picking up and playing the HD Remixes of the games on PS3. I just finished playing the ever-loving crap out of Kingdom Hearts 2.5 and cannot wait for the third, non-spinoff installment of the series to come out shiny and new for my PS4. But that got me thinking, where do I want to fly my definitely-not-phallus-shaped Gummi ship to in the sequel? Who do I want to team up with and take down Heartless side-by-side with? So here is my list of the top 5 worlds I hope they add in Kingdom Hearts 3! (I specifically went with »

In the first season of Mad Men, in the episode entitled "The Wheel," pitchman poet Don Draper reframed a carousel slide projector as a time machine and defined the word "nostalgia" not as "a sentimental longing" or "wistful recollection of the past" but by the Greek meaning, "pain from an old wound." Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner not only gave us a way of understanding his show and its haunted antihero but also a perspective on '60s nostalgia in general, a genre of entertainment unto itself. It began in earnest in the 1980s, when the thirtysomethings who suffered the history of Platoon, »

The third season of HBO’s Girls is very much one of renewal and reinvention. Characters who find themselves at highs or in happy situations at the end of the previous season are quickly brought low, while others are finally free to soar as the season goes on. Coming off of the high of season two’s over-the-top (but nonetheless touching) finale, season three has the thankless job of bringing everyone back to reality. Charlie and Marnie are broken up, Ray and Shoshanna are broken up, and Hannah and Adam are seeing that their reconcilliation may be more short-lived than they imagined. Meanwhile, Jessa has finally reached the bottom of the barrel and is no longer free to live her indulgent and presumptuous lifestyle.
Life has a way of complicating things and so do the people in our lives, and further still, so do we, ourselves. What has always »
I knew Marty could pull off some pretty slick maneuvers after seeing him evade the Libyans chasing him in front of the Twin Pines Mall (or was it the Lone Pine Mall?), but spelling out 88 by doing doughnuts is even more impressive.

Next year is 2015. The future of the Back to the Future franchise has finally caught up with us, and we're nowhere near where I'd hoped we would be. Where are all the flying cars, the funky Pepsi bottles, and kids playing in the streets with their hover boards? Most importantly,where is Jaws 19?! Oh well, looks like we're just going to have to keep awaiting for some of these things. As a tribute to the film, and a way to ring in the new year, artist Olivier Fritsch has created this great piece of fan art for us to enjoy. »

That Hot Tub Time Machine sequel you don’t remember ordering? Well, it’s here with a new trailer, a trimmed-down cast, some fresh time-travel mayhem and one or two big laughs to sink your teeth into. After July's red-band trailer, the Hot Tub Time Machine – or "Httm" – party is underway again. Click below to watch it in full.Gone, of course, is John Cusack, leaving the Hot Tub Time Machine 2 spotlight on the three time-twisting amigos, Nick (Craig Robinson), Jacob (Clark Duke) and Lou (Rob Corddry), with Adam Scott stepping in as the son of Cusack’s character. Yes, he’s only seven years younger than the man who played his father but, well, there are Time Travel Reasons to explain this.There are also time travel reasons to explain their new-found fortunes, because this one sees the crew making like Biff Tannen in Back To The Future »
John Cusack may be gone, but the rest of the Hot Tub Time Machine cast have returned for a sequel to the 2010 hit. So this time, Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson and Clark Duke are all on board, and the plot sees them trying to go back to the past. But before you can say 'rejected plot for a Back To The Future movie', they have to alter the future to save the past which is also the present.
If they end up in an alternative 1985, and their mums have married the school bullies, then maybe it won't be a rejected Back To The Future plot after all.

The film stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Philippe Petit; the story following his attempt to walk a tightrope wire between the World Trade Towers. Directed by Robert Zemeckis, The Walk has interestingly been shot in IMAX3D, the intention clearly to immerse the viewer in the challenge. This extra viewing element will surely see those not with a head for heights clutching onto their cinema seats for safety.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt took to his Facebook page yesterday to share his enthusiasm for the project:

Here’s your first look at the dreamlike teaser, as well as the striking first poster, for director Robert Zemeckis’s upcoming movie, The Walk. The film is set to hit theaters next fall on October 2, 2015.
Twelve people have walked on the moon, but only one man – Philippe Petit (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) – has ever, or will ever, walk in the immense void between the World Trade Center towers. Guided by his real-life mentor, Papa Rudy (Ben Kingsley), and aided by an unlikely band of international recruits, Petit and his gang overcome long odds, betrayals, dissension and countless close calls to conceive and execute their mad plan.
Robert Zemeckis, the director of such marvels as Forrest Gump, Cast Away, Back to the Future, Polar Express and Flight, again uses advanced technology in the service of an emotional, character-driven story.
With innovative photorealistic techniques and IMAX 3D wizardry, The Walk is true big-screen cinema, »

Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without a heavily tinseled tree, a tipple before midday and Gremlins on the telly at some point during the day.
The Joe Dante-directed black cult comedy sees protagonist Billy Peltzer being gifted with Gizmo, a cute furry Mogwai discovered by his inventor father in a mysterious Chinatown antique store.
Of course the creature comes with three special instructions which, if not adhered to, result in the spawning of grizzly Gremlins hell-bent on havoc.
The Steven Spielberg-produced movie - which is
currently being fast-tracked by Warner Bros for a remake - celebrated its 30th anniversary earlier this year, and here's what the main cast members got up to after the movie's success:
Zach Galligan plays William 'Billy' Peltzer who becomes enthralled by his unusual Christmas gift - yet careless with the three golden Gizmo rules.

It has been a full forty years since Philippe Petit’s daring stunt that saw the French wire artist walk between the Two Towers, and to this day, his remarkable feat is still held up as one of the most valiant and indeed audacious stunts ever performed. It served as the focal point of James Marsh’s well-received documentary Man On Wire back in 2008 and now, Petit’s death-defying act is set to be ushered into the spotlight once more with Robert Zemeckis’ upcoming film, The Walk.
Starring Joesph Gordon-Levitt as the French daredevil, Zemeckis’ latest will see the actor walk the tightrope at an eye-watering 1,350 feet in 1974. Ben Kingsley and Charlotte Le Bon will join the 50/50 actor in the film, which is set to make its debut in the fall of next year.
While short in length, this first-look trailer sets things up quite brilliantly, and Gordon-Levitt looks to »

Sony Pictures has released the first The Walk trailer and poster. Robert Zemeckis' film is based on the true story of the illegal 1974 tightrope walk between the twin towers of the World Trade Center by high-wire walker Philippe Petit (Joseph Gordon-Levitt). This trailer really functions more like an announcement. If you don't know about the film, you'll be intrigued, but choosing to release the first trailer now when the movie is almost a year a way is basically saying, "See you in the awards hunt next year, kids!" That's not to say it will be a bad movie, and at the very least, the dizzying heights will probably be worth the IMAX 3D ticket. Hit the jump to check out The Walk trailer and poster. The film also stars Charlotte Le Bon, Ben Kingsley, James Badge Dale, Ben Schwartz, Clément Sibony and César Domboy. The Walk opens in 2D, »

Oscar-winning director Robert Zemeckis, the man behind such classics as the Back to The Future trilogy, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, Forrest Gump and Cast Away returns with the upcoming fall 2015 drama The Walk. The director will recreate the infamous August 7, 1974 high-wire walk between the two World Trade Center towers as performed by Philippe Petit. Sony has released the first trailer, which teases the first thrilling footage featuring Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
The Walk is the true story of a young dreamer, Philippe Petit, and a band of unlikely recruits who together achieve the impossible: an illegal wire walk in the immense void between the World Trade Center towers. With little more than nerve and blind ambition, Petit and his ragtag crew overcome daunting physical obstacles, betrayals, countless close calls and overwhelming odds to beat the system and execute their mad plan.
Guided by his real-life mentor, Papa Rudy, the team set out »

Here's the official synopsis: Twelve people have walked on the moon, but only one man has ever, or will ever, walk in the immense void between the World Trade Center towers.
