Need to catch up? Check out the previous Outlander recap here.

Talk about performance anxiety.

Both on- and off-screen, this week’s episode of Outlander has a daunting charge: Bring to life the scene fans of Diana Gabaldon’s books have spent years waiting to see — Jamie and Claire’s reunion in Alexander Malcolm’s print shop — and do it perfectly.

The Frasers’ first hours together in decades have to be fraught, but not depressing. They have to be romantic, but not syrupy. And above all, they have to be sexy — Jamie and his Sassenach do, after all, spend a

Heal the Living review – heart-rending tale of organ donation

Katell Quillévéré’s polished mosaic of interconnected lives is intelligently acted and visually arresting but its cardiac-transplant storyline is a little glib

Katell Quillévéré’s first two pictures, Love Like Poison and Suzanne, established her as a film-maker of delicacy and grace; this third feature is based on the novel by Maylis de Kerangal, adapted by the director with veteran screenwriter Gilles Taurand.

It is every bit as beautifully made and intelligently acted as you might expect, with some wonderful visual imagery at the very beginning. Yet I was disappointed. The organ donation storyline is a readymade trope, bringing together disparate life stories; it creates its own internal narrative economy of donor and recipient. But it’s a rather Hollywoodised high concept, reminiscent of Alejandro González Iñárittu’s 21 Grams or even, frankly, a slushy romantic weepie from 2000 starring Minnie Driver called Return to Me. Those films had the idea of infringing the donor anonymity rules,

Zootopia Available on Blu-ray June 7th

“I am just a dumb bunny, but, we are good at multiplying!”

When I reviewed Zootopia here at We Are Movie Geeks, I wrote”, the beautifully designed, brightly-hued Zootopia is breezier and bouncier than most. The animation work is dazzling, lovingly detailed without being overdone. I felt like I could reach out and pet these furry critters, especially in eye-popping 3D.” (read all of my review Here)

Now you can own Zootopia on Blu-ray thanks to Walt Disney Animation Studios!

Zootopia has broken records worldwide earning more than $900 million at the global box office to date.

It’s been called one of the best buddy cop comedies in years!

Disney Animation's Zootopia Reveals New Characters and Cast Members

Disney's upcoming animated film Zootopia looks like it's going to a ridiculously funny and entertaining film. I got to see some footage from it at D23 this past summer, and I thought the stuff that the studio shared was great.

The voice cast for the film originally included Jason Bateman, Ginnifer Goodwin, and Shakira. Now, thanks to USA Today, we have some information on the rest of the voice cast and the characters that they will be playing. We even have images and information for each of those characters. But first, here's the synopsis:

The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything.

Brothers review – Akshay Kumar is lead Weeble in feeble Warrior remake

This Bollywood take on the 2011 boxing saga hits home occasionally but sacrifices drama for fight scenes stripped of emotional scar tissue

Bollywood has long eyed up Hollywood for inspiration: since the millennium, it’s remade everything from The Godfather (2008’s Sarkar Raj) tothe David Duchovny heart transplant saga Return to Me (2004’s Dil Ne Jise Apne Kahaa). Fox’s high-profile Brothers forms an interesting case study, reworking material that flopped the first time around: Gavin O’Connor’s Warrior, that 2011 mix of mythology and mixed martial arts that sought to provide rock ’em-sock ’em entertainment to crowds whose credit had been crunched. (Sadly, they couldn’t afford the ticket.) That film was very specifically tied to an America reeling from rounds of foreclosures and lay-offs; removed of that context, the story can’t pack the same punch.

Minnie Driver Flubs the National Anthem at Dodgers Game, Laughs It Off on Twitter—Watch Now!

Minnie Driver Flubs the National Anthem at Dodgers Game, Laughs It Off on Twitter—Watch Now!
Practice doesn't always make perfect! The pressure is always on when it comes time to sing the National Anthem in front of a massive crowd—say, at a Los Angeles Dodgers game—and it looks like Minnie Driver let it get to her. While singing "The Star Spangled Banner" Saturday night, the Return to Me actress flubbed the lyrics twice in the minute-long rendition. She started out strong, but as the song went on she botched the line, "O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming." If you listen closely, Driver chose a different word than "watched." Shortly thereafter, she turned "Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave," into "Oh, say can that...

First Look Images: Jason Bateman & Alexander Skarsgård in Disconnect

  • HeyUGuys
Jason Bateman may be currently filming the long-awaited and highly-anticipated new season of Arrested Development (the brilliant first set photos from which we saw earlier this week), but we can’t forget that he’s got a number of brilliant films lined up alongside his return to the small screen, and one of them, Disconnect, has just been added to this year’s Tiff line-up.

Starring alongside Bateman will be an impressive cast, headed up by Alexander Skarsgård, Paula Patton, Hope Davis, Andrea Riseborough, Frank Grillo, Michael Nyqvist, and younger stars Haley Ramm and Max Thieriot, and following this afternoon’s Tiff announcement, we’ve got our first look at two images from the film.

Minnie Driver Talks Dark Side Of Hollywood

Minnie Driver Talks Dark Side Of Hollywood
While an Oscar nomination tends to be the bright light in an actor's career, the recognition landed Minnie Driver in a dark place. During the height of her "Good Will Hunting" fame -- for which she earned a 1997 Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination -- Driver sank to new lows.

"I definitely went a bit bonkers in my early 20s, when I got famous quickly," Driver told the U.K.'s Stylist magazine (via Daily Mail). "Bonkers in a way where I didn't eat enough, I drank too much, smoked too many cigarettes, cried a lot and was very emotional."

Driver revealed that she dropped to 98 pounds at the height of her emotionally fragile state, before her sister urged her to seek help. Though Driver credits family for pulling her out of the darkness, she blames Hollywood for putting her there.

Top 10 TV stars we’d like to see more of on the big screen

They light up the small screen, but have seen relatively little exposure in the movies. Here’s James’ of TV stars we’d love to see on the big screen…

Straddling the fine line between success and failure in Hollywood is like walking a tightrope of future career persecution and retrospective judgement.

Success on the TV screen is not always amply rewarded with a success on the big screen. There are a few ways to make the cut – reinvent your career through TV (Keifer Sutherland style), take the path less trodden with a series of slow-burning support roles (Jk Simmons) or have a huge hit on TV simply too large to ignore (Ricky Gervais).

Hollywood is a bit like an elitist private members club – once you’re in, you’re in, but cracking it has proven far too difficult for this list of talented actors in the past. We, the people,

Alexander Skarsgard Wants to 'Disconnect'

Alexander Skarsgard will soon be online.

The "True Blood" hunk hits the information superhighway as he joins the cast of "Disconnect," an indie drama about the many dangers of the Internet, according to Variety.

"Disconnect" sounds like a variation on "Crash" (the one that was nominated for a lot of Oscars, not the one that was actually good) as it follows a group of interconnected characters who are affected -- and in some cases destroyed -- by the Internet and other forms of modern communication.

Michael Nyqvist Joins Disconnnected

Michael Nyqvist Joins Disconnnected
Ah, the Internet. Scourge of tabloid newspapers, enemy of productivity and primary delivery system for gigabytes of naked people doing things to each other. It’s an endlessly fascinating subject for filmmakers and one that Murderball director Henry-Alex Rubin is turning to for his first feature since the documentary, hiring Michael Nyqvist, Alexander Skarsgard, Frank Grillo and Colin Ford to star in indie drama Disconnected. Written by Return to Me’s Andrew Stern, the film will follow a group of characters whose lives are variously impacted by the Magical Interwebs and other forms of communication so prevalent in today’s high-tech society. So probably not smoke signals, then.Skarsgard (yes, him again – he’s a busy bloke) is on as a former Marine whose marriage is crumbling due to financial and emotional pressures and who is driven to seek out an affair.
