Killing Them Softly is both a surprising and unexpected return for director Andrew Dominik, whose name has been missing from the big screen for five long years. What’s most surprising about the film is that it’s not much more commercial than his previous film, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, a movie which didn’t nearly get its due back in 2007. His latest film is, however, unsurprising in terms of theme: the power of the dollar. After Jesse James didn’t light the world on fire financially, Dominik found it difficult to get other projects off the ground, so money must have been on his mind. And, according to Dominik, it was, and that’s a part of how we got his new political crime picture, Killing Them Softly. Here is what writer and director Andrew Dominik had to say about the film’s slightly cartoonish approach, why »

Welcome back to This Week In Discs! As always, if you see something you like, click on the image to buy it. In Search Of: Complete Series The universe is filled with mystery, and for several years the best place learn more about in on a weekly basis was the show In Search Of… with host Leonard Nimoy. The series tackled all manner of the unknown from aliens to the Bermuda Triangle to conspiracies to the Loch Ness Monster and beyond. The Bigfoot episode was where I first saw footage of the creature walking through the woods. Sure the video was later debunked, but it was magic unspooling across the screen and I still remember my first viewing. Several of the episodes are dated, but many of the topics remain mysteries to this day. Note: Amazon.ca has the set cheaper so we’re linking there.

From Perry's 'oops', to Biden's 'big stick', via RuPaul and Lena Dunham, here are my highlights of this political crazy season
It's been the costliest election in American history and it sure feels like the longest. It has also been one of the weirdest. The Gop primary provided a mini-series' worth of clown-car exits and debates, Twitter gave celebrities the chance to make themselves seem as unself-aware and smug as pundits (and vice versa). YouTube gave the world the presidential candidate we deserved – Bronco Bama – and hashtags organized the terse poetry of the truly bored.
Here is a list of some things that actually – no, really, for serious – happened.
1. Lindsay Lohan live tweeted the foreign policy debate.
2. A bayonet company spokesman called Obama "ignorant" for joking that troops no longer need horses and bayonets "because troops still use bayonets".
3. Donald Trump promised Americans that "their president will become transparent." Not »

NCIS' Leroy Jethro Gibbs lives life by a set of rules. Now you can too!
In honor of NCIS Season 10 premiering next week, TV Fanatic has compiled (and is asking for your help with) a list of the many indespensible pearls of wisdom our fearless leader holds dear.
The extent to which they're unwritten, fluid or changing is subject to debate, but Gibbs' rules - not all of which have been revealed, and more of which may still be added - have been a constant since Season 1.
The number of rules was long believed to be around 50, with a 51st added with strong significance in the Season 7 finale. However, a 69th rule was dropped out of nowhere in the middle of Season 9.
There have been examples of Gibbs and the team breaking the rules (3, 6, 12), and there are two different rules for #1 and #3, anomalies attributed to Gibbs' friend and mentor, »

Max Payne 3 is loaded with clues and golden guns collectibles to track down and locate. After fending off all the enemies in the immediate area first, of course.
In total there are 149 collectibles to track down and find in Max Payne 3. They are split between Clues, found when examining objects - even corpses - while playing through the campaign, and Golden Gun parts, which assembled unlock one of many Golden Guns in the game.
Each of Max Payne 3's 14 chapters includes either one or two unlockable Golden Guns which have been split into three parts. By the end of each chapter you should have at least a couple new shiny weapons to add to your arsenal and begin using immediately. These Golden Guns parts literally jump off the screen with their glow so they are easy to spot, assuming you know where off the beaten path to look for them. »
