Warning: I’m (still) a huge Kanye West fan, and I’m here to give you proof that rap goes perfectly even with the story which is set in nineteenth-century China! Right here, at FilmoFilia you can, you should, and you will listen the full album stream of The Man With The Iron Fists soundtrack! Bitch please, thank you and you’re welcome!
Ok, let’s be honest, it’s not all about Kanye West, this soundtrack includes tracks from Wiz Khalifa, My Chemical Romance, The Wu-Tang Clan…(the list does not and here, of course!) And the most important thing is that they all sound great!
Let’s get official for a second:
The Soundtrack features original songs created for the film by artists including The Black Keys, Kanye West, the Wu-Tang Clan, Ghostface Killah, Wiz Khalifa, Talib Kweli, Pusha T, Raekwon, Method Man and RZA who collaborates with »

Time and the finite nature of it is an essential ingredient in all suspense films. So I need to get myself on the clock when it comes to Zero Dark Thirty. I was shocked at how quickly we knew of its existence post Hurt Locker but then... it never seemed to come. It still feels like something off in the very distant future set in the very recent past. But it actually opens in 66 days. Tick tock.
Let's break down the trailer...
At the very least it'll make an interesting comparison point to Showtime's "Homeland". Jessica Chastain gets her first high profile lead role! Joel Edgerton That hot soldier with the glow stick I've been with director Kathryn Bigelow since Near Dark and I'm not going anywhere. I tend to love her work. And even when I don't, it's interesting. It looks far more beautiful, visually, than The Hurt Locker. »

Exclusive: Gaumont International Television, the independent TV studio behind upcoming series Hannibal on NBC and Hemlock Grove on Netflix, has signed a deal with ABC for another potential straight-to-series project, James Patterson’s Bennett. The drama, based on bestselling author James Patterson’s character Michael Bennett, has received a script- to 13-episode commitment, meaning ABC has ordered a script and if the network brass likes it, it will trigger a 13-episode order. Gaumont used the same model for Hannibal, which was written by Bryan Fuller. James Patterson’s Bennett will be written by Ildy Modrovich (Necessary Roughness), who will executive produce with Patterson. Patterson’s Bennett novels center on New York Detective Bennett, a character Patterson says was “inspired by the brave heroes of the NYPD”. The top-selling New York detective series of all time, it consists of five novels so far: Step On A Crack (2009), Run For Your Life »

As with any great comic book movie, Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises" features its fair share of throwbacks to its over 70 years of source material. From overt reflections of iconic moments to the subtler winks-and-nods aimed at deep-cut fans, "Rises" is sure to please the viewers who have had their noses buried in Batman books all their lives.
Here are five of our favorite "Dark Knight Rises" comic book callouts. Major Spoilers after the break! Do not proceed without having seen "Rises" first!
Selina Kyle makes her first appearance in "Rises" posing as a maid working at Wayne Manor. (Indeed, her first scenes offer viewers a glimpse at the "Dark Knight" spinoff that never was, "Downton Batman.") Her mission is to glean Bruce's fingerprints from a safe, but along the way, she pauses to steal the late Martha Wayne's iconic pearl necklace. »

Jamie Lomas is reportedly in talks to star in a Hollywood film. The former Hollyoaks actor recently moved to Los Angeles to try to start a career in the Us. Lomas has been joined by his former co-star Ricky Whittle, who has stated that he is looking to settle down in the area to focus on his ambition.

I have previously said that AMC's The Walking Dead television show needs to be digested separate from the comic book, but I still find myself at times expecting the familiar plot points to happen and in the same timeframe. I fell victim to this approach again with 'Judge, Jury, Executioner,' but this time I was pleasantly surprised rather than slightly disappointed.
What follows is not my traditional reviews, but a scene-by-scene as-it-happens recap:
Darryl plays the part of Rick's enforcer in the pre-opening credits sequence, beating the crap out of Randall as a form of interrogation. The rough tactic appeared to work with Randall admitting at one point to being a passive contributor to a gang rape. He probably could have left that bit out when a raging redneck is using your face to reshape his knuckles.
Oh man, somebody just drag Dale out to a pasture and put his tired ass out down. »

Last week it was all about the 2012 BAFTA Film Awards, and now sees our attention turn to gaming with the announcement of the nominees for the BAFTA Video Game Awards 2012. We were there last year and hope to be covering it again this year. But in the meantime here’s the full list of nominees, featuring the cream of the crop of video gaming.
Personally I hope Uncharted 3 sweeps the board in all the categories its nominated in, and – being a Mario fan – I hope Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7 pick up awards… although Dead Space iOS could give them a run for the money in the handheld categories!
Assassin’s Creed Revelations – Martin Schelling, Darby McDevitt, Raphael Lacoste / Ubisoft Montreal/Ubisoft Batman: Arkham City – Jamie Walker, Sefton Hill, Adam Doherty / Rocksteady Studios/Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 – Development Team / Infinity Ward »

So The Doctor's on yet another goodbye mission. Since bidding adieu to Amy and Rory at the end of The God Complex, nearly 200 years have passed. Now The Doctor's apparently facing the end of his days – note the word, apparently – by now, every man, woman, child, cat, dog, guinea pig, hamster and fly realised that The Doctor wouldn't die – you can't have a successful, long-running show and then just axe it without warning. Not even a cut-ridden BBC can kill off that indomitable Time Lord for good.
But hey – any excuse for yet another whistle-stop tour of old friends. Presumably, in the future, The Doctor will take this to the next level. He'll go out and buy himself a musty old copy of the Doctor Who A-z Encyclopaedia by Jean-Marc Lofficier and visit every last character he's met during his many lives – yes, right down to the bumbling Louvre Guide »
