We've come to the end of this trip through "Orange Is the New Black" season 2. Thoughts on the final three episodes, and season 2 as a whole, coming up just as soon as I buy a banjolele on Craigslist... "Feeling our feelings might actually make it impossible to survive in here." -Poussey For the sake of this experiment of trying to review a Netflix show as if it were distributed more traditionally, I tried not to get too far ahead of what I was reviewing. And watching at that two at a time pace, I was still enjoying the season a lot, but not feeling quite as bewitched by it as I was in season 1. Then I got to the end of episode 10, with Pornstache's arrest, and decided I just wanted to keep going, unwritten rules of the project be damned, and I wound up watching the season's final five episodes within 24 hours of each other. »

Pixar's first special - Toy Story of Terror - was released last year. »
There might not be a Pixar film in theaters this year, but that doesn't mean the animation studio doesn't have something in store for fans. This Christmas, a new TV special is coming around Christmastime called Toy Story That Time Forgot. There will be a sneak preview of the ABC TV special at Comic-Con on Thursday, July 24th, and that's where you can get ahold of a cool poster designed by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola. That might seem like a weird match-up, but when you see the poster with a dinosaur warrior that has a mace in his hand, it'll all make sense. The Halloween short was fun, and this seems cool too. Look! Here's Mike Mignola's Toy Story That Time Forgot poster for Comic-Con from TV Line: During a post-Christmas play date, the Toy Story gang find themselves in uncharted territory when the coolest set of action figures »

Last fall, ABC aired a charming Halloween special starring the Toy Story franchise’s beloved playthings. Its ratings success has paved the way for another half-hour that’ll air on the network later this holiday season—and this one has more dinos than the first.
The second special, called Toy Story That Time Forgot, finds the heroes tangling with a gang of new action figures led by Reptillus Maximus (voiced by Grey’s Anatomy star Kevin McKidd). Much like Buzz Lightyear in the franchise’s first film, Reptillus and his crew don’t know that they’re just toys—which causes some major complications, »

This new TV special will see Woody, Buzz and the gang come across a group (or herd?) of dinosaur toys, led by Reptillus Maximus (voiced by Kevin McKidd), who believe that they are real, much like Buzz did at the beginning of the first installment (1995). Tom Hanks, Joan Cusack, Tim Allen, Wallace Shawn, Don Rickles, Kristen Schaal and Timothy Dalton will all return as their respective characters, ensuring that the legend of Toy Story lives on!
The poster gives us a sneaky peek at Reptillus himself, all muscle and scales. But…who’s that on the right-hand side? It can’t be…what’s happened to Trixie?! Will Woody and Buzz be able to save her? We’ll have to wait and see.

With exclusive images having been unveiled by Entertainment Weekly recently, and surely plenty of news to come from this years San Diego Comic-Con, fans are understandably getting excited about The Avengers: Age Of Ultron. Joss Whedon’s sequel to his own 2012 comic book blockbuster, it is the latest film to come from one of cinema’s most diverse talents.
Throughout the last decade alone he has brought a whole variety of fictional worlds to the screen; from sci-fi western Serenity, to Shakespeare adaptation Much Ado About Nothing, and game changing horror The Cabin In The Woods, he has also realised these visions as a writer, director, producer, and even composer. This is to say nothing of those which he worked on beforehand, such as Toy Story and Alien Resurrection, and the low budget indie In Your Eyes, which was made available to rent online earlier this year. »

Ah, Twitter. That mysterious vortex in which fans send celebrities heartfelt messages of love, only to receive cyber silence in return. But not in the case of Avengers director Joss Whedon. The Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator has become a bit of a legend for his beloved TV series, including Buffy, the spin-off Angel, Firefly, and Dollhouse, not to mention his work in film, from serving as a writer on Toy Story to directing the blockbuster Avengers films. Now Whedon has decided to give a little back to [...] »
An amiable feline-led romp perhaps best described as a cat o’ benign tales, Belgian crossover toon “The House of Magic” will perhaps prove most memorable as a marker of just how swiftly Euro animation houses are catching up with their Hollywood counterparts. Rendering in sleek 3D strokes the generic quest of an abandoned kitty to save his zany adoptive household from the clutches of a heartless real-estate agent, Ben Stassen and Jeremie Degruson’s film convincingly approximates the whizzy cartoon aesthetic and full-Crayola-box palette of a DreamWorks Animation escapade. If the script doesn’t quite have the smartass snap of U.S. studio fare, that shouldn’t hinder its global tiny-tot appeal. Already released in multiple European and Asian territories last Christmas, “Magic” opens in Blighty this week.

Within the past few years a variety of hard-hitting, somewhat bleak dramas have hailed out of Belgium. From Our Children, to The Kid with a Bike, to the recently Academy Award nominated The Broken Circle Breakdown – it’s a nation currently going through something of a bright patch. However, sadly that doesn’t seem to extend to films made for a younger crowd, as filmmakers Jeremy Degruson and Ben Stassen present the underwhelming, albeit enchanting, children’s animation The House of Magic.
Murray Blue voices Thunder, an abandoned kitten who seeks shelter at the home of veteran magician Lawrence (Doug Stone), much to the displeasure of his other pets Maggie the Mouse (Shanelle Gray) and Jack the Rabbit (George Babbit), who are jealous of the affection shown towards him. Finally feeling settled and at home in this fantastical, outlandish new environment, living amongst a host of magical creations, it could be a short-lived stay, »

To celebrate the release of the biography Joss Whedon: Geek King of the Universe by Amy Pascale – which is out on July 24th courtesy of Aurum Press – we have a copy of the book to give away to one lucky reader…
Joss Whedon is a male writer whose most famous creation is a girl-power icon; a geek who deals in classic themes of love, betrayal and redemption; and one of the first people in the entertainment industry to have harnessed the power of the internet to engage directly with his fans.
Amy Pascale became one of those fans when Buffy Summers enrolled at Sunnydale High in 1997. She has followed Whedon’s career ever since, marvelling at his ability to reimagine seemingly hackneyed genres as heartfelt human drama.
In this revealing biography she seeks out the source of that imagination, exploring his artistic liberal upbringing in New York and teenage »

Last weekend may have signaled a new Dawn for the Planet of the Apes franchise, as its latest film exceeded studio and analyst expectations with a $72.6 million debut. But Caesar and the gang face some formidable cross-genre competition this weekend, when Sex Tape, The Purge: Anarchy, and Planes: Fire & Rescue all hit theaters in wide release. With a steep drop-off expected for Apes and a lack of decent horror, family, and raunchy comedy fare on the market, all are tracking pretty similarly, making this summer weekend a rare box office wild card.
Here’s how things might play out:

In the swish screening room underneath Channel 4’s London headquarters, Utopia director Marc Munden chatted to a group of Den Of Geek readers after a preview screening of the first two surprising, stunning episodes of series two.
Catch up on what was said, from big yellow bags to moral quandaries, rhino dung and more…
That first episode is quite a bold one insofar as it has none of the characters as we know in it, how hard was that to get past the channel? Was there much debate about doing it that way?
I think people were sceptical and then when Dennis started to write it people just got behind it. Once Dennis had written it, everyone just came on board and it just got better and better. »

A documentary that covers James Ferman’s run as the Head of the BBFC and the fallout from the Video Recording Act of 1984.
The sequel to Jake West and Marc Morris’ Video Nasties: Moral Panic, Censorship and Videotape sees the pair take on the James Ferman era of the BBFC between 1985 and 1999, a time when widespread panic and outrage was placed upon the country because a few horror films were sold on video tape. It’s a fascinating look at a period when, despite claiming to be a free country, we were ruled with an iron fist and films became a censored art form. The documentary is filled with brilliant interviews with those who lived through these times as a horror fan, but also those who worked within the BBFC and politicians who lobbied for “this filth” to be removed from our shores. »

Out among the possibilities of film and animation, The Lego Movie sounded like a great idea but how would it ever be accessible, interesting and just as fun as it is in real life? Well, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller already did quirky successfully after bringing forth the unexpected hit of Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs in 2009. From this they grabbed something else that shouldn’t have worked and revamped 21 Jump Street, with Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, and made something pretty darn unique.
The Lego Movie is completely original as it effortlessly clicks together different parts of a well-known brand and also adds something that both adults and kids can love. Lego has always had that extra »
