While HBO’s True Blood is no longer the water cooler show it once was, it’s still fun, and isn’t afraid to screw with characters, sometimes so continuously and to such an unseemly extent that it kind of dulls the impact. It’s been awhile since we’ve actually cared about what happens to this motley, bloody, sexy crew…because it’s gotten to the point where everything is so over-the-top and ridiculous, that even while cool and enjoyable, it just doesn’t pack the same punch as it once did.
But, last season ended on an intriguing note, because $#!* was turned up to 11: Bill Compton, the former gentleman and first love of Sookie Stackhouse, has been reborn as a vampire god monster, through Lillith, the original vampire. Or, something else is going on that we don’t know yet. But when he emerges Lillith blood-red from »

Annapurna Pictures purchased the rights to the "Terminator" May 2011, with the stipulation that if nothing is done with the property by a specific date, screen rights would revert back to "Terminator" co-creators James Cameron and Gale Anne Hurd.
"The Terminator" released in 1984, was inspired by themes and premises by science fiction author Harlan Ellison, then scripted by Gale Anne Hurd and Cameron, with direction by Cameron, after Roger Corman passed on the project.

Many speculated that Arnold Schwarzenegger was too old to reprise his title role as The Terminator in Terminator 5. It was reported that he may instead play a military officer whose likeness is used in creating the 850 series Model 101, also known as the T-805 and the T-101 (sometimes also refered too as the T-800), as seen in the original The Terminator and its sequels Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, and Terminator Salvation.
When asked if he was more excited about returning for The Legend of Conan or Terminator 5, he gave this response, which solidifies his participation as the infamous and iconic cyborg killer.

Just when you think Edward Furlong is out...they pull him back in. The Terminator 2: Judgment Day star, who had been free on bond following his May 16 arrest for an alleged probation violation, is in jail again after a judge hiked his bail from $50,000 to $100,000. The L.A. County District Attorney's Office confirmed to E! News that Furlong was present in court Monday, where prosecutors asked that the amount be raised. (It was originally set at $100,000, but reduced at the time.) The 35-year-old actor was booked at the L.A. County Sheriff's Department's Airport Lockup on a felony charge and processed into Men's Central Jail at 10:30 a.m. today. He has not yet posted bail. His »
Maybe you think of "Jurassic Park" as the movie that surpassed "E.T." to become the biggest Steven Spielberg film ever, as well as one of the biggest hits of all time. Or maybe you think of it as the film that, through its landmark CGI dinosaurs, helped usher in the age of digital filmmaking. Or maybe you just think of it as the movie that scared the pants off you when you saw it in theaters two decades ago (the film marks its 20th anniversary on June 11) and every time you've watched it since on TV.
However you regard it, "Jurassic Park" has seemed a ubiquitous, inescapable fixture of pop culture for 20 years. And yet there are still things about it you may not know, such has how Spielberg chose his cast, how several teams of effects artists came together to build those pioneering dinosaurs, and whether or not it »

Chicago – “The Last Stand” may mark the first time Arnold Schwarzenegger fulfilled his iconic promise, “I’ll be back,” and the general public replied, “Who cares?” Designed as a comeback vehicle for the actor-turned-governor-turned-wannabe actor, this competently made yet instantly forgettable flick has already gained notoriety as one of the year’s biggest bombs. Hasta la vista, indeed.
Several factors could’ve played a role in the picture’s swift theatrical demise. Schwarzenegger’s heavily publicized affair and subsequent divorce, not to mention his tepidly received autobiography, kept his popularity at a record low, while the film’s sneering tagline, “Retirement is for Sissies,” may have turned off a great many working class moviegoers. Yet the biggest problem, as I see it, is Arnold himself. He is simply not a good actor. At all.
Blu-ray Rating: 2.0/5.0
Sure, Schwarzenegger had the muscular physique of a steroid-dependent movie star back in the ’80s, »

The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day are rightly considered classics, which made it all the more disappointing when Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines was a critical flop. Arnold Schwarzenegger would sit out Terminator Salvation, appearing only as a CGI creation. However, the former Governor of California is expected to fully reprise the role which helped to make him a household name in the fifth instalment of the franchise which has seemingly been stuck in development hell for a number of years now. However, Yahoo! Movies says that the actor recently confirmed in an interview that, "We're writing it now," before adding, "There are three projects being written that involve me. One is Terminator 5, the other is a Conan movie that Universal is doing and there's the sequel to Twins, which is called Triplets. We'll all look quite different in that. The third triplet is Eddie Murphy, so »
When a movie is so good that it completely pulls you into its universe, it's only natural to wonder what must have happened after the credits rolled.
Thankfully, we've followed some of your favorite movies through to their logical next steps so that when you watch them again on DVD or at their inevitable 3-D re-release, you won't have to waste mental energy asking questions like "Whatever happened to that guy?" and can move on to more important stuff like "What's the meaning of life?" and "Who the hell ate my Girl Scout cookies?"

Well, at least Edward Furlong's personal effects will fit in most overhead compartments. The Terminator 2: Judgment Day star was released from jail today on a $50,000 bond after being arrested last night for allegedly violating his girlfriend's restraining order against him, E! News confirms. Furlong, still sporting ink on his thumb from being fingerprinted, left the West Hollywood lockup toting a rolling carry-on bag. Last night, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, deputies responded to a call about a possible protective-order violation and Furlong was found "hiding on an adjacent property." The actor was also arrested and jailed back in February »
Edward Furlong is in more trouble with the law. The Terminator 2: Judgment Day star was arrested Thursday in West Hollywood, Calif.., for violating the terms of his probation, E! News confirms. Police say the 35-year-old actor was charged with a felony after violating his ex-girlfriend's restraining order against him after multiple reported instances of domestic abuse. Furlong is currently behind bars on $100,000, and police tell E! News his court date will most likely be Monday. Legal troubles are, unfortunately, nothing new for Furlong. In March, he was sentenced to six months in jail for violating his probation from an older case. (He was placed on three years' probation in November 2010 for »

The 20th anniversary of Jurassic Park is a milestone that I agree needs to be celebrated. The movie marks the first really successful use of CGI that looked realistic. Even by today’s standards, the dinosaurs still appear lifelike. With the theatrical release of the 1993 blockbuster in 3D and IMAX, I felt it was the perfect opportunity to take my six-year-old so to see it the way it was meant to be – on the big screen.
I hadn’t seen Jurassic Park in a theater since its release in 1993. My son had never seen it in its entirety. I was mildly curious as to how it would look in 3D, while he was ecstatic to see dinosaurs pop out at him. Honestly, I was underwhelmed with the experience. It appeared to me that the same process used to convert Star Wars – Episode I: The Phantom Menace was utilized. Instead of »

Anchor Bay Films announced today the acquisition of Small Time starring Christopher Meloni (42, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Man of Steel), Bridget Moynahan (I, Robot, Lord of War, Blue Bloods) and Dean Norris (Breaking Bad, Little Miss Sunshine, Under the Dome). Written and directed by Joel Surnow, Emmy Award-winner and co-creator of the hit series 24, small time is his debut feature film and loosely based on his real life experiences. The agreement with Abf covers all North American rights and today's announcement was made by Anchor Bay Entertainment's President, Bill Clark.

In films like Last Action Hero and Jurassic Park: The Lost World, we've been given alternate realities of movies including Sylvester Stallone in Terminator 2: Judgment Day and King Lear starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. But some of these faux realities may not be as ridiculous as initially thought. One such case is country musician Garth Brooks almost starring in Twister and Saving Private Ryan. Why are we just now hearing about this? Well, Lisa Sanderson, who’s worked with both Brooks and Merv Griffin, has filed a lawsuit against Brooks, saying that she lost out on money and opportunities because the famed singer is a “paranoid, angry, deceitful, and vindictive man who will turn against those closest to him on a dime.” Brooks' efforts stretch as far back as 1994 when he started his own production company called Red Strokes, and they initially had a development deal with Disney that never »

In people years, the MTV Movie Awards still wouldn't be able to rent a car at the regular rate; but in the accolades-passing-out universe, 22 consecutive years of awarding popcorn statues to the A-list, producing the funniest movie spoofs ever, trying to wrangle Jim Carrey through his many stunts and witnessing the horror that was Borat's booty in Eminem's face has made it one of the most fun, most can't-be-missed awards shows in all Awards Show Land.
To celebrate the upcoming show (Sunday, April 14, 9:00 p.m. Et, MTV), here's our walk down memory lane with stops along the way to recall the 20 most memorable Movie Awards moments ever.

The name may be unfamiliar but Industrial Light & Magic's Creative Director Dennis Muren's contributions to cinema certainly aren't. Initially hired by George Lucas on “Star Wars,” Muren has nabbed eight Oscars for his visual effects work to date and more importantly he shepherded Ilm's transition from physical models to CG with his work on “Terminator 2: Judgment Day.” All of which goes to say: when this man speaks about the current state of the industry, people listen. But he is not speaking in the spirit of celebration, instead he says that the craft he was so integral to in the modern era has “reached a ceiling” and that "[in] some ways… special effects aren't special anymore.” Lamenting the rise of narrative bloat and inexperienced directors getting lost in their attempts at both practical and CGI special effects, Muren comments: “If you're going to make a motion picture, don't just »

I promised longtime Tfe super fan Ryan that I would one day write up a big top ten of the 90s piece although This Is Not It. This is like those tossed back "shots" of past decades wherein we tell each other our favorites. I'll tell you my ten favorites which are wildly unstable and could be replaced by anything in the "with apologies to" list if I'd ranked on another day. Well, not the top three. I mean... let's not get crazy.
The Piano (Jane Campion) Boogie Nights (Paul Thomas Anderson) Thelma & Louise (Ridley Scott) Heavenly Creatures (Peter Jackson) Beauty & The Beast (Trousdale & Wise) All About My Mother (Pedro Almodóvar) Trois Coleurs Trilogy (Krystof Kzielowski) T2: Judgment Day (James Cameron) Fargo (The Coen Bros) Pulp Fiction (Quentin Tarantino)
Most of them weren't even nominated for Best Picture. (Sigh). Oscar is so...
With apologies to 15 more. Let's call it »
