Considering all of the horrible movie ideas out there that actually make it to the big screen, I actually find this one to be completely legit. While Steven Spielberg’s Hook never got any credit for being a good movie, I always thought it was kind of fun. Far and away the best parts of the movie are when adult Peter Pan is trying to get his mojo back with The Lost Boys. Their leader, Rufio, was one of the more dynamic characters of the movie. Now some 26 years after Hook was released the actor who played Rufio, Dante Basco,

Roughly a decade ago, Sir David Attenborough assisted in navigating a viewership over half-a-billion strong on a journey that stretched to the farthest reaches of our world. That glorious trek, Planet Earth – “the first natural history series to be filmed in high definition” – gave humanity a groundbreaking peek at the bodies of water and landmasses that define the globe and astounded viewers with unprecedented looks at the animals and vegetation with which we share in calling this marbled-orb home.
Now, thanks to the ceaseless efforts of a community of fearless, dedicated filmmakers and researchers three years in the making. Attenborough and the BBC have returned with a visually unparalleled and spiritually uplifting sequel to 2006’s extraordinary series, simply titled Planet Earth II. Spanning a mere seven episodes, Planet Earth II takes us back to a few of the extreme locales from the series’ initial run (mountains, deserts, and jungles), while »

Far and away one of the biggest stories of the 2017 Grammy Awards was the gold outfit of CeeLo. I’m not sure if he wore it to become relevant again. I’m not sure if he wore it because he knew it would spawn a plethora of internet memes. I have a feeling it’s a little bit of all of the above. When you’re a celebrity and have achieved much of what you want to achieve, things can get boring after a while. CeeLo’s outfit was far from boring and it was certainly a conversation starter. I have to say however,

On December 26th, 1991, the Soviet Union dissolved. This signalled the formal end of the Cold War, which left the United States as the sole remaining superpower, but did not necessarily usher in an era of peace at home and abroad. This shift in power instead opened a void in eastern Europe and the middle east which would come to be a source of conflict for the next two decades and beyond. A deadly civil war »

Updated: Gross theatrical box office in China grew by just 3% in 2016, reaching RMB45.3 billion in local currency terms. That compared with RMB43.9 billion in 2015.
In U.S. dollar terms the data points to a 3.5% drop in the value of the Chinese market from $6.76 billion (using end of 2015 exchange rates) to $6.52 billion (using end of 2016 rates.)
Those numbers are a far cry from the 49% surge enjoyed in 2015 and requires a sharp revision to forecasts of when China’s numbers will overtake North America. The 2017 target figure, so widely used at the beginning of the year, now seems not only wildly optimistic, but also to have misunderstood the dynamics of the market.
Full year data from tracking and consultancy firm Ent Group – likely to be corroborated in the next couple of days by official statistics – show that ticket sales increased by close to 9% over the year. They reached 1.37 billion in 2016, for an »
