This review contains spoilers.
4.13 Devil's Due
Picard is watching Data perform as Ebeneezer Scrooge on the holodeck when the ship receives a distress call from a Federation science team on Ventax II. The planet's population is rioting because it just reached the end of an alleged thousand-year contract with Ardra, their planet's version of the Devil, which promised the citizens peace and prosperity in return for becoming her property when the contract was up. Remember: always read the small print.
With a mob holding most of the science team hostage, Picard beams down and gets his negotiating pen out. As he attempts to quell the superstitious crowd's fear, Arda appears, announcing that "Time's up."
In an attempt to convince everyone that she is who she says, she briefly takes on the form »
Harrison Ford injured in plane accident (image: Harrison Ford as Colonel Graff in 'Ender's Game') Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark actor Harrison Ford was supposed to be in critical condition – later reports have upgraded that to "fair" or "stable" condition – following an accident with a small airplane on Los Angeles' Westside. Earlier this afternoon (March 5, 2015), a vintage, one-engine two-seater crash landed at the Penmar Golf Course, located in the Los Angeles suburb of Venice, not far from the Pacific Ocean and just west of Santa Monica Airport. Its pilot, 72-year-old Harrison Ford, was found "seriously" injured. He was alone on the plane. There were no injuries on the ground.

Ford was later transported to an unidentified hospital. Eleven »

George Lucas rides off into the sunset on a song, and with a whole lot of love as Strange Magic marks the final film he developed for Lucasfilm before selling his company to Disney. Inspired by Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream', Strange Magic is a motion capture, CGI musical about the unlikely romance of a faerie princess (Evan Rachel Wood) and the grizzled Bog King (Alan Cumming).
A departure from his previous work, this new fantasy adventure is a frame to frame musical, with popular songs driving the love themed plot. Lucas admits he has been writing Strange Magic for over fifteen years. As Star Wars was mainly meant for boys, Strange Magic is his opus for girls. And it Teaches a much different lesson than traditional, patriarchal fables.
<< Continued from "'Sniper' to Easily Fight Off Weak Competition This Weekend"Opening at 2,648 locations, Mortdecai will likely be Johnny Depp's latest misfire at the domestic box office. He stars as the title character, a "debonair art dealer and part time rogue" who goes on a mission to recover a stolen painting.Marketing has positioned the movie as a broad slapstick comedy, and there's been a heavy emphasis placed on Mortdecai's silly-looking mustache. That includes a series of posters that feature each of the main stars, including Gwyneth Paltrow and Olivia Munn, wearing a similar mustache.
