Arrow Recap: Take Your Daughter to Hack Day

Arrow Recap: Take Your Daughter to Hack Day
This week on The CW’s Arrow, it was a nuclear family affair when Felicity recruited her criminal father to help thwart Damien Darhk’s annihilation of (most of) mankind.

Having seized possession of the Rubicon algorithm (which as Felicity notes was a very bad idea to create in the first place), Darhk uses it to arm and initiate launch sequences for nuclear missiles from every Nato ally. Knowing that with every death, Darhk will become that much more powered/unstoppable, Felicity seeks out her super-hacker dad,

'Arrow' is addicted to resurrection, will bring Another character back from the dead
If "Arrow" had an alternate name, it would be called "Resurrection", or at least "All Hail the Lazarus Pit". I say this — mostly in jest — because "Arrow" is bring another character back from the dead this week in the episode titled "Brotherhood". While Thea (Willa Holland) and Sara (Caity Lotz) needed the help of the Lazarus Pit to bring them back, this character doesn't need magic, he needs discovery. Much like Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), who was thought to be dead until Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) and Curtis (Echo Kellum) discovered his message, this character was also only presumed dead. Who is this mysterious character, now returning to the land of the living? Andrew Diggle, John Diggle's believed-to-be-dead brother. Andy is played by Eugene Byrd, whose acting credits include "Bones", "8 Mile", "Heroes", and previous flashback episodes of "Arrow". According to John Diggle (David Ramsey), Andy was killed by Deadshot (Michael Rowe

New Arrow Season 4 Photos: Laurel Deals With Sara’s Resurrection, Oliver Begins His Run for Mayor

Last night’s Arrow was a pivotal episode for the series, as Laurel and Malcom resurrected Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), using the Lazarus Pit at Nanda Parbat. However, Sara, who unlike Thea, wasn’t dying but fully dead, awakened from the Pit with no semblance of her former self. All that was present in Sara, as she rose from the waters, was rage and a thirst for violence, and there’s no sign that will be going away anytime soon. In these photos from next week’s episode of Arrow, “Beyond Redemption,” Laurel will have to deal with the consequences of bringing her sister back to life at Nanda Parabt, as she chains Sara up and does her best to help her remember who she used to be. And unlike last season, when she kept Sara’s death a secret from Quentin, Laurel will be completely honest with her father about Sara’s return,

10 sequels that ignored previous films

In the wake of the Alien 5 news, here are 10 franchise sequels that also ignored at least one previous film.

We all have moments in our lives we'd prefer to forget, and so too do filmmakers. So what do you do when a movie franchise starts to go off the rails? Simple, just forget that the lesser films in the series never happened.

News recently broke that director Neill Blomkamp's taking this approach to the Alien universe. Recent interviews with both he and returning star Sigourney Weaver have revealed that Blomkamp's forthcoming sequel will not necessarily follow the events of Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection, and pick up the story from Aliens instead (although he has since given a brief update on that).

Of course, we'll have to wait and see exactly how all this pans out. But it's by no means the first time in history that a film's

Arrow Recap: Reunited and It Feels So Meh

  • Vulture
Admittedly, death has never been too high-stakes on Arrow. The show’s entire premise stems from Oliver Queen’s unexpected reappearance five years after “drowning” in the North China Sea. Other characters follow suit in that regard: Malcolm Merlyn, Slade Wilson, Deadshot, and even Felicity’s ex, Cooper, each get “Surprise!” resurrected. (Shado, Moira Queen, and Sara Lance, at least the second time around, do not fare as well. What’s a girl gotta do to come back from the dead around here?) That Arrow employs this plot device often shouldn’t be unexpected, as coming back to life is a common comic-book trope.Save for Oliver’s reemergence in the pilot episode, the return of these presumed-dead characters, all villains, were surprise plot-twists meant to leave the audience with dropped jaws and freaked-out tweets. This time, with Oliver Resurrection: Part Deux, for once, we’re in on the surprise.

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2009

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 20 Feb 2014 - 05:40

The unloved films of 2009 provide the focus in our final list of the 2000s' overlooked greats...

The year 2009 will partly be remembered as the year Avatar dominating the box office, with audiences flocking to see James Cameron's leafy pulp epic in shimmering 3D. Making almost $2.8bn worldwide, Avatar was a true behemoth, besting Cameron's own Titanic as the highest-grossing film of all time (not adjusted for inflation) and hastening a rush of 3D films in the years that followed.

Films such as 2012, Sherlock Holmes and boozy comedy The Hangover were also among the top 10, but as always, some of the most memorable and individual films of the year were far from the most financially successful. So to round off our series of underrated flicks of the 2000s, here's our selection of 2009's overlooked films...

Marilyn Chambers Biopic For "Blue" Director?

"Blue Is The Warmest Color" director Abdellatif Kechiche has revealed that he's been asked to next helm a biopic about Marilyn Chambers.

Chambers was a model and actress with a wholesome, all-American girl image who was best known as the 'Ivory Soap girl' in commercials.

That changed in 1972 when she starred in the legendary porn film "Behind the Green Door" which includes one of the first interracial hardcore sex scenes put to film. It also ends with an infamous sequence involving her, three men and trapeze equipment.

Chambers went onto a career in porn with bestselling films like "Insatiable" and "Resurrection of Eve," along with more regular movie work such as David Cronenberg's "Rabid". She came close to being cast in a number of major features in development in the late 1970s.

Kechiche actually pitched several films, including the Chambers biopic, to Wild Bunch before he went to work on 'Blue'.

Exclusive: Stephen Romano Rides the Resurrection Express to the Big Screen

We're big supporters of author, screenwriter, and artist Stephen Romano, mainly because not only is he uber-talented, but he's also just as sick as we are. God bless him! Read on for the first details on Resurrection Express as it heads toward the screen.

"I am happy to announce that I have officially sealed the deal with a pair of real Hollywood legends to bring my highly acclaimed novel Resurrection Express to the big screen," Romano tells us exclusively.

Romano continues, "I really love the book. It's one of my favorite things I've done so far. Simon and Schuster really took a chance on it because it's a batshit-crazy, ultra-violent thrill ride filed with over-the-top action, horrific torture, nonstop intrigue and crazy plot twists. It's about a half-mad hacker/martial artist named Elroy Coffin, who gets word that his dead wife may still be alive, and all he has to

Prometheus Blu-ray – First Details

The most anticipated and polarising film of 2012 is coming to Blu-ray later this year and details of the bonus content have been found on Amazon.fr.

Anyone hoping for a significant number of deleted scenes to fill in the film’s many plot holes will be disappointed as there are only 15 minutes worth. But the most exciting thing on the disc may be the inclusion of the first and final draft of the script by Damon Lindelof and Jon Spaihts.

Prometheus began as a straight Alien prequel written by Jon Spaihts until Damon Lindelof conducted a re-write that became the final product. If they do actually include Spaihts’ original draft, it will be fascinating to see how he originally planned to link it to Alien and if it would have actually made a better film.

You also get Ridley Scott providing an audio commentary so it will be very interesting

Reel Rumbles #38: ‘Terminator Salvation’ vs. ‘Alien Resurrection’

In This Corner

In recent years, there’s been a number of once-dormant franchises – particularly franchises that began in the 1980s – being resurrected with a third sequel. Not every franchise warrants a fourth movie, but we’ve recently seen Rambo, Live Free or Die Hard, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull…to varying degrees of success. (Surely, it will not be too much longer before some genius decides to make Back to the Future Part IV.)

There are two science fiction franchises, however, that share a very similar pattern of quality in their four movies. The first two films in both series are widely considered classics (and, in fact, all four films rank in the Top 100 of Flickchart’s list of the Best Films of All Time). Both had their reputations tarnished by a lackluster third film (yet even those movies have their defenders). And both had

Sex and the supernatural in British horror film Siren

Released on DVD by Matchbox Films on June 27 is British independent horror flick Siren.

Described as Dead Calm meets The Hunger, Siren is the debut directorial feature of former art director the late Andrew Hull (P2, Queer As Folk USA, Get Over It, Resurrection).

The film features Eoin Macken (Merlin, Centurion), Anna Skellern (The Descent Part 2), Tereza Srbova (Inkheart, St Trinian's, Eichmann, Eastern Promises) and Anthony Jabre and boasts a musical theme based around La girl group Warpaint's song Elephants.

Hoping to escape their busy city lives for a weekend of sailing off Tunisia's Mediterranean coast, Ken (Macken), his girlfriend Rachel (Skellern) and her old college friend Marco (Jabre) see their plans hit a snag when they go to the aid of a castaway.

Raving incoherently and bleeding from his ears, the man dies on board the boat prompting the three friends, fearing reprisals from the local foreign authorities, to

Kiefer Sutherland joins the heist in Sleight of Hand

Source: FilmShaft - Kiefer Sutherland joins the heist in Sleight of Hand

Kiefer Sutherland has joined Sleight of Hand, a crime thriller about a heist which gets a gang of criminals in a whole lot of trouble. Although best known as a writer for films such as ‘Resurrection’ and ‘Crime Spree’, Brad Mirman will be directing, and the film follows what happens when a group of small-time criminals In Paris inadvertently gain possession of a rare gold coin that belongs to a notorious French gangster.

The cast also includes Gerard Depardieu, Thomas Jane, Til Schweiger, Jon Lovitz, Johnny Hallyday and Eric Cantona. The rights to the film will be sold at the impending Cannes Film Festival. Lars Von Trier’s film ‘Melancholia’ will also be making its debut at the festival, in which Sutherland also stars. So it will certainly be a busy festival for him.

'V' season finale: Who needs closure? Bring on the sex, the lizards, and the death of [Spoiler]!
To understand why the gory second season finale of V was such an exciting hour of television, it helps to consider the final image of Crank: High Voltage, easily the most existential movie to feature a sex scene in the middle of a horse race. By the end of C: Hv, Jason Statham’s Chev Chelios has spent two movies suffering all manner of physical suffering and mental degradation. He has fallen out of a helicopter. He has witnessed the removal of his still-beating heart. He has been in a car crash, or two, or seven. He has fought off an entire gang,
