Paris Hilton ticked off a lot of people by doing absolutely nothing this weekend.A plane carrying a banner with the heiress' name on it flew over a public memorial for Paul Walker on Sunday -- leading many to comment on Twitter that she was making the actor's death all about her.The message read "Our hearts go out to his friends + family," with a heart and the words "#17 Paris Hilton" also written on it.But while it may seem like Hilton's Mo to go over the top with her condolences, toofab has confirmed she had nothing to do with it.And this isn't the first time her name has appeared in the sky recently either.A couple weeks back, another plane was spotted over Malibu carrying the messages "Can't get Paris Whitney Hilton out of my mind!" and "Mr. and Mrs. Hilton, may I court your daughter, Paris?"

Like a Dostoevsky in the desert, this great series charts a decent, slightly pathetic man's tragic descent into moral depravity
When I reviewed the first series of Breaking Bad for this slot back in 2010, the show was almost unheard of: a little tale of a high-school chemistry teacher in a dusty corner of America, toiling away in a life of quiet desperation, only to be told he's dying of cancer. So he teams up with a wayward former pupil, Jesse, to make and sell crystal meth, to earn big bucks fast and thereby provide security for his family after his demise. At the time, it felt like a poignant Chekhovian story about a decent, if slightly pathetic man trying to shore up a failed life. The only reason I bothered watching it at all it was because I'd studied chemistry at university.
How wrong I was. This wasn't suburban Chekhov. »

Paul Walker tribute: Universal and the ‘Fast and Furious’ cast and crew pay homage to the recently deceased actor (photo: Paul Walker in ‘Fast & Furious 6′) The Tribute to Paul Walker put out by Universal Pictures’ "Fast & Furious" YouTube account, will likely please fans of the movie franchise — clearly the video’s target audience. Walker died at the age of 40 on November 30, 2013, in a car crash in the town of Santa Clarita, located in the northern outskirts of Los Angeles County. Walker’s friend and business partner, 38-year-old former Porsche racing-car driver Roger Rodas, who was at the wheel, was also killed in the accident. Check out the Paul Walker Tribute below. Now, of course, the Paul Walker Tribute also happens to be a The Fast and the Furious tribute, as no other Paul Walker movie is shown in the two-minute clip. Walker, playing former cop Brian O’Conner, was »

Our voyage through history's underappreciated films arrives at the year 2001, and a vintage year for lesser-seen gems...
Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C Clarke may have seen 2001 as the year we'd head off to meet alien intelligences in the depths of space, but in reality, its cinematic landscape was dominated by fantasy rather than extra-terrestrials. Rowling and Tolkien dominated the box office, with Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone and The Fellowship Of The Ring earning almost $1bn each, while Monsters, Inc and Shrek thrilled old and young audiences alike.
At the other end of the spectrum of success, 2001 was such a vintage year for movies that we had to whittle our usual selection of 25 films down from an initial selection of more than 40. This is why the decision was made - with heavy heart - to exclude some of our favourite films, »
Members of Paul Walker's stunned, grieving family as well as friends gathered Monday night to mourn at the site of the car crash that killed the actor over the weekend. Police helped clear a space for Walker's loved ones amid other mourners and onlookers, Antonio Holmes, a body-shop worker who knew Walker through his Always Evolving racing team, tells People. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Walker's Fast and Furious studio Universal obtained the necessary police permit for the gathering. It was not immediately clear which family members attended. Walker is survived by his mother and father, two brothers, »

This weekend saw Hollywood lose another of it’s stars. Paul Walker, best known for his role as Brian O’Conner in The Fast And The Furious, was victim of a fatal car crash. The nature of his death, coupled with the fact that he was only forty has left everyone saddened and stunned. It’s now being reported production on Fast & Furious 7 has been halted for cast and crew to process their grief while Universal looks at how to move forward.
The last twenty-four hours have seen the world of social media ablaze with reactions from all corners of the film and television community. The beautiful thing about all tweets, Facebook updates, etc, is the overwhelming outpouring of love and respect for the star. The responses of those closet to him, his co-stars on Fast 7, are as expected gut-wrenchingly sad. The really striking thing though is that even people »

While undeniably tragic, it's fitting that Paul Walker lost his life in a car accident. It wasn't just his career that was defined by the adrenaline-soaked automotive orgies of the Fast & Furious series; his whole life hummed with a love of cars. A friend of mine, during a junket for Fast & Furious 6 this year, found him to be distant and unresponsive until she asked him a question about cars, at which point he all but grabbed her by the hand and giddily dug around inside an engine for her.

Paul Walker movies: Few worthwhile efforts away from the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise (photo: Paul Walker in ‘Hours’) (See previous post: “Paul Walker Dead: Fast and Furious Actor Killed in Fiery Car Crash.”) Aside from the Fast and Furious franchise, Paul Walker was featured in about 15 movies since the turn of the century; most of those were little-seen releases that did nothing to expand his following beyond fans of slick, high-speed shenanigans, e.g., John Glenn’s thriller and straight-to-dvd release The Lazarus Project (2008), co-starring Piper Perabo; Wayne Kramer’s box office bomb Running Scared, with Vera Farmiga; John Stockwell’s mix of deep-sea adventure and crime thriller Into the Blue, with Jessica Alba and Josh Brolin; and another straight-to-dvd effort, Mukunda Michael Dewil’s poorly received thriller Vehicle 19 (2013). Paul Walker’s handful of more prestigious and/or successful films were Clint Eastwood’s World War II drama Flags of Our Fathers »

Paul Walker, who died in a car crash on Saturday afternoon in Valencia, Calif., was best known for his roles in The Fast and the Furious films, but there were so many in Hollywood who knew him as more than the franchise's Brian O'Conner. Friends and colleagues flooded Twitter with tributes to the father of one, who got his start as a child actor in commercials and went on to make appearances in shows like Charles in Charge, Who's the Boss and The Young and the Restless. "My heart is hurting so bad no one can make me believe this is real, »

"If you keep yelling," Carrie Mathison says to her lover/nemesis Nicholas Brody, "this conversation is over." If the makers of Homeland had adopted that policy themselves, this would have been a very short episode. Actor Damian Lewis chewed so much scenery during his scenes of heroin withdrawal, hallucinations, suicide attempts, and painful father-daughter reunions that I half suspect he mistook the set for the craft services table. Watching Lewis's once-surefooted performance careen sloppily around the screen was the strongest indication yet that the show's once and future leading man is now its weakest link. »
She's Still Not Our Sister made its debut on DVD and VOD formats yesterday, and we have an exclusive clip from this four-part mini-series.

Take a look at this exclusive scene before picking up the DVD.
In this riveting four-part sequel to Gmc's hit gospel play production She's Not Our Sister, the saga of the Walker sisters continues as they learn that the millions they received after their father's death cannot buy happiness. Instead, the four women discover they have inherited an entirely new set of challenges, including career setbacks, romantic disappointments, charming gold-diggers and self-destructive tendencies. »
What’s worthy of PopWatching this week? Well, consider this week the calm before the holiday-movie storm. Next week is Thanksgivukkah and then a virtual Christmas-movie-marathon-mania follows. Before you get your dose of jolly caroling cheer, scenes of holly-trimmed (and secretly hostile) family dinners, and everyone quoting Love Actually, consider this your bah, Humbug! week, filled with a stocking’s worth of everything that’s anti-holiday — teens killing teens, crime-solving robots, and sardonic humor. Merry watching!

So. Many. Walker. Battles. Way to load up on us, The Walking Dead Powers That Be. That was Excellent. Rick said it’s never going to be the same, but did he know who was just outside the gate? This season has been full of intensity and action, but last week’s may have been the peak. Will that high bar be met or raised this week?
Here for your gruesome enjoyment are the terrific set of videos that the lovely folks at AMC so kindly release each week. We have the “Making of” featurette, the “Inside the Walking Dead” featurette, the “Talked About” clip – I had forgotten that so much action took place within that small amount of time – and a clip of the upcoming episode.

Tonight's episode of AMC's The Walking Dead took our survivors outside the relative safety of the prison gates, but not everybody would be returning. We've bid farewell to characters for various reasons - Walker bites, friendly fire, and recently, illness - but tonight's episode, "Indifference" featured a new method of departure never before seen on the show. It remains to be seen how the events of this episode will impact the rest of the story arc in season four (or perhaps even the planned companion series), but things will certainly get interesting from here on out. Hit the jump for my review, and to find out if hipsters have survived the apocalypse. Much like last year's standout episode, "Clear", tonight's hour took us outside the comfort of the prison gates and into the unpredictable wilds of suburbia. Two groups are now out in search of supplies: one led by Daryl »

Tottenham will be looking for their second win over Hull City in the space of just three days when the two sides meet again in the fourth round of the Capital One Cup tonight.
Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas is set to rotate his side, meaning the club’s record signing Erik Lamela could start.
However, Danny Rose and Younes Kaboul lack match fitness and will not be risked.
Hull boss Steve Bruce is still without most of the first team regulars who were absent the last time these sides met at the weekend.
Jake Livermore is once more ineligible to play against his parent club due to the stipulations agreed in his loan deal.
This is the first ever meeting between these two sides in League Cup competition, and the second in the »
