Who said goodbye? Who came back from the dead? And what’s the deal with Peter Pan? Epic doesn’t even begin to describe this season finale.
The residents of Storybrooke, good and evil, had to put aside their differences in order to save their town from total destruction on the May 12 season finale of Once Upon A Time. But before the hour was over, a far more important mission revealed itself — one that took everyone far away from Storybrooke.
In yet another attempt to redeem herself, Regina (Lana Parrilla) volunteered to give up her remaining powers to hold off “the device” long enough for everyone in town to escape. But rather than let the Evil Queen die, Emma (Jennifer Morrison) stepped in to lend her a magical hand. (Side note: Am I the only one who totally forgot about Emma’s powers?)
Sadly, everyone’s celebration was cut tragically »

Warning: The following recap contains major spoilers from the Season 2 finale of ABC’s Once Upon a Time.
This week on Once Upon a Time, with Tamara and Greg set to “blow Storybrooke off the map,” a most unlikely hero stepped forward to declare that the needs of the many outweighed the needs of the few (or the one). But as the season drew to a close, one additional twist found our heroes setting course for an altogether different fate.

In case you couldn’t guessed by the title, yes, this is indeed the sequel-in-title-only to WWE Studios’ “12 Rounds” starring Jon Cena, which really didn’t do all that well in 2009, but I guess it did well enough that the folks at WWE felt justified in giving it a direct-to-dvd sequel anyway. Like WWE Studios’ “The Marine” franchise, this looks like another unrelated sequel, with a new wrassler slotted in as the hero. The target audience here, of course, is the undemanding action viewer and WWE fans. Check out the first trailer for the film below. “12 Rounds: Reloaded” is directed by Roel Reiné, the go-to guy for direct-to-dvd sequels to moderately successful theatrical films. Reine counts direct-to-dvd sequels for “The Lost Boys”, “The Marine”, and not one, but two “Death Race” films to his credit. As paramedic Nick Malloy, Orton jumps into overdrive in this pulse-pounding, thrill ride filled with gripping suspense! »
Each week, Thn takes a look back at one of the Walt Disney Animated Classics. The ones that the Walt Disney Company showed in cinemas, the ones they’re most proud of, the ones that still cost a bloody fortune no matter how old they are.
This week, a little later than planned, it’s off to (Never) Never Land with the eternal child that is Peter Pan.
In 1935, Disney first intended for J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan, one of his favourite stories, to be his second film after Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs. However, because the rights to the play had been bequeathed in perpetuity to Great Ormond Street Hospital, it was several years before he could come to an arrangement.
After that, the studio began story development and character designs in the late 1930s and early ’40s, »

Documentary director best known for his unusual collaborations with German director Herzog died earlier today Les Blank, among whose directorial efforts is the British Film Academy-winning documentary Burden of Dreams, about the bizarre events surrounding the making of Werner Herzog's Amazon-set Fitzcarraldo, died in Berkeley, California, earlier today, according to an article found on the web site Deadline.com. Blank, who had been suffering from cancer, was 77. Pictured above: Herzog is the maddeningly obsessive star of the 1982 documentary Burden of Dreams. Near the end of the 1960s, Blank was directing industrial and promotional shorts in order to bankroll his i documentary shorts, including Chicago Film Festival winner The Blues Accordin' to Lightnin' Hopkins (1969) and God Respects Us When We Work, But Loves Us When We Dance (1969), about the burgeoning "flower children" scene. Music and the cultural context encompassing it were frequent themes in Blank's work. Examples include the norteño »

Read on!
Rob G: Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn is my favorite movie of all time. No, believe it or not, it’s not Psycho, although that comes in a very close second. It’s Evil Dead 2. And by saying that, I’m not acknowledging or stating that Sam Raimi’s remake/sequel hybrid to his classic horror flick ‘The Evil Dead‘ is the best acted, best scripted, best directed movie ever; it’s just in terms of sheer entertainment value my personal favorite. »

When you think about vampires the images that spring readily to mind are of tall, dark handsome strangers, of the seduction of the innocent, of smouldering looks and sexual frission, of low cut gowns and bare, bloody breasts. Well they do to my mind, anyway, having been brought up on Hammer films and then graduating to the likes of Tobe Hooper’s Lifeforce (1985), Kathryn Bigelow’s Near Dark (1987), Joel Schumacher’s The Lost Boys (1987), and Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula (1992), all of which propagate the dark and sexy image of Transylvania’s least favourite cold caller.
It wasn’t always this way, though. When vampires first appeared on the silver screen they were awkward, ugly things that anybody in their right mind would run from rather than to. Some of them had bald heads, big ears and too many teeth like Max Schreck’s timeless portrayal of Nosferatu (1922), a look »
Some people can never escape their signature roles -- just ask "Hook" star Dante Basco.Though he's done voice work for "Avatar: The Last Airbender" and starred on the Disney show "American Dragon: Jake Long," Dante is best known for playing Rufio, the mohawked leader of The Lost Boys in the 1991 flick.In a new video for Funny or Die, Dante plays himself auditioning for "A Streetcar Named Desire" ... but it doesn't exactly go according to script. Last time we checked, Stanley never called Stella a "fart factory."Check out the video above -- plus see what the rest of the cast of "Hook" looks like today in the gallery: Read more »

If you listen to the official Destroy the Brain podcast – which you Should! – you may remember that a few weeks ago (on the episode found Here) I caught the original 1957 Universal film The Incredible Shrinking Man while flipping through the TV. It had been years since I had seen the film but was something that always stuck with me over the years as the idea was quite frightening to me as a little kid. Richard Matheson wrote the original book The Shrinking Man which the film was based on. A film sequel was written by the author as well but was never made by Universal. They did however go for a more comedic remake of sorts in 1981 with The Incredible Shrinking Woman directed by Joel Schumacher (The Lost Boys). Now, it seems, MGM is interested in the property as they have just acquired the rights to Richard Matheson’s novel. »

Like many of you, I excitedly watched The Following to see Kevin Bacon in his first-ever TV role. And while it's been great seeing him battle James Purefoy's charismatic killer, Joe Carroll, I quickly became infinitely more invested in Joe's three followers: Emma, Jacob and Paul. Well, last night took the tension to a new level as Emma cemented her control over that triumvirate in the most memorable shower scene since (ironically) Kevin Bacon in Wild Things.
And if thought that was shocking, just wait until next week's episode reveals the fallout from Emma's emotional expression!
To find out what fans can expect from future eps of The Following, I caught up with the absolutely amazing Valorie Curry (one of 2013's biggest breakout stars) to talk all about this thrilling threesome and find out why opening her heart is the most dangerous thing Emma could ever do.

With Ethan Hawke most recently delivering a laudable performance in the terrifying box office hit Sinister, due to hit UK DVD and Blu-ray on 11 February through Momentum Pictures, we decided to take a look back at some other Hollywood notables who made their mark on the genre with style. Aaaaand Action!
Perhaps best known as Roger Murtaugh in the Lethal Weapon films, Danny Glover also has a long history of roles in smaller independent films. So it was perhaps not surprising when he turned up as obsessive Detective Tapp in low-budget horror Saw. Glover shot his scenes in two days, and the film went on to spawn one of the biggest horror franchises of all time.
Screen Australia says it has not mismanaged its finances by spending its annual production funding in just six months - a state of affairs which it says reflects the strength of the local film industry.
The government screen agency revealed in mid-December 2012 that it had spent its entire annual $42 million drama production allocation due to the unprecedented number of quality feature film and television projects seeking support. The shock announcement was reminiscent of the agency's abrupt decision to cut its investment cap in 2009 while several films were mid-financed. That decision.threw several major Australian productions into dissaray including The Tree and the biggest box office hit of.2010, Tomorrow When the War Began (Omnilab Media had to increase its investment at the last minute to ensure production).
Overspending on such a scale has never occurred before, even going back to the era of Screen Australia.s predecessor funding arm, the Film Finance Corporation. »
