Flying CDs, Spacemen and the 90 minute build up to a finishing line: The Year Dolph Lundgren Saved My Christmas

Tom Jolliffe on how Dolph Lundgren saved his Christmas…

Christmas is almost upon us. Prepare yourself for constant recurring questions about whether you’ve started your shopping. Furthermore as I speak from a film site, there will also be thousands of Crimbo themed lists fired out across the web. We’ll doubtless be covering our share on Flickering Myth too and I’m now offering my, hopefully unique story about a Christmas film (in fairly loose terms) and why it saved my Christmas.

So before I get into why this film is important to me I will give a little rundown on the film itself. Those who are familiar will know instantly from the headline description, but this is a cult film and a small cult at that. Dark Angel (also titled I Come In Peace in America). This 1990 actioner was a big hit on video for Dolph Lundgren. If

Jessica Alba Says She Isn't Interested in Acting Anymore Unless She's 'In Control'
Jessica Alba is a full-time businesswoman.

The 36-year-old star created the incredibly successful The Honest Company, and in a new interview for Good Housekeeping's January 2018 issue, talks about what's next on her agenda. Alba says she's no longer interested in acting, unless she's the one in charge.

"I did a role in Ted Melfi's movie El Camino Christmas, but unless I was in control, [going back] would feel weird," she tells the magazine. "If I could develop a film or a series for Netflix, that would be cool. I still have my Dark Angel fans, and Hollywood is finally allowing women to star more in action franchises, which is a passion of mine."

Of course, Alba also has her hands full being a mom to her daughters, 9-year-old Honor and 6-year-old Haven. She's currently pregnant with her third child with husband Cash Warren, a baby boy.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Says James Cameron and Tim Miller Will Keep Things Simple With the New Terminator Movie

With James Cameron involved with the next installment of Terminator films, fans seem excited about what is coming. It's an excitement we haven't felt in a long time because Cameron hasn't been involved with the creation of the previous movies. Now that the man who created the Terminator is back in the saddle fans are expecting great things.

James Cameron is developing the film alongside Deadpool director Tim Miller and they are developing a plan to continue the story that ended with Terminator 2. According to Arnold Schwarzenegger, they are taking steps to fix the broken franchise, and one of the things they are looking at doing is keeping things simple.

During a recent interview, Schwarzenegger talked about the next Terminator film with Business Insider, saying:

"I think [James] Cameron and Tim [Miller] came up with a concept where they can continue on with the T-800 but make a whole new movie.

18 Actors Who Were Almost Marvel's Star-Lord

18 Actors Who Were Almost Marvel's Star-Lord
Guardians of the Galaxy was considered a risky proposition for Marvel Studios, even after the runaway success of their cinematic universe building films like Iron Man and The Avengers. These characters hang around in outer space! There are aliens on the team! There's a talking raccoon! So it was nothing short of incredible when Guardians of the Galaxy earned nearly $800 million and a 91% on Rotten Tomatoes. A big part of James Gunn's action-comedy masterpiece depends upon the charisma of Chris Pratt, who leads the team as Peter Quill, the film's relatable half-earthling who rocks badass tunes in his headphones while kicking ass as Star-Lord. But it almost didn't happen that way. As there were plenty of other big names vying for the coveted role.

It may seem crazy to think about now, but at the time, Pratt was mostly known as lovable doofus and Mouse Rat frontman Andy Dwyer on NBC's Parks and Recreation.

James Cameron's New Terminator Film Will Be Released in Summer 2019

Paramount Pictures has announced that producer James Cameron and director Tim Miller's new Terminator film will be released on July 26th, 2019!

I know the last three Terminator films haven't turned out to be as good as fans hoped, but this next one actually has a good shot of being the Terminator sequel fans have been waiting for. That's mostly because of the involvement of Cameron, who seems to be working with a great team of talent.

On top of bringing the director of Deadpool on board, he's also brought in David Goyer (Batman Begins), Charles Eglee (Dark Angel) and Josh Friedman (Avatar sequels, The Sarah Connor Chronicles) as his writing staff. Then, of course, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton will reprise their roles!

The upcoming film will be a direct sequel to Terminator 2 and will ignore all of the other films that have been made since. Cameron previously said

The Next Terminator Film Will Embrace Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Age and Be Different From Genisys

Some interesting new details have surfaced regarding the plans for Arnold Schwarzenegger's character in the upcoming new Terminator films. During a recent interview with THR, producer James Cameron and director Tim Miller talked about how they will embrace Schwarzenegger's age in a different way than Terminator: Genisys.

The actor will be 71-years-old by the time they shoot the next Terminator movie and when talking about his age, Cameron said:

“You don’t have to get around it. The beauty of it is: He’s a cyborg. And so, the org part is on the outside, meaning organism. And Reese says it in the first film: ‘They sweat. They have bad breath.’ Because they were supposed to be infiltration units, so there’s this idea that flesh sort of sheaths over a metal endo-skeleton. So that would age normally. So, obviously he’s one that’s been in action

This Fact About Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki's First Meeting Is Pretty Crazy
Thanks to Supernatural, people get to see Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki kick ass every week as the demon-hunting Winchester brothers. While we love their onscreen bromance (literally), it's the bond they share outside of work that really tugs at our fandom hearts. The two actors have been close friends since the show premiered in 2005, and since then, they've seen each other through weddings, babies, and everything in between. So how exactly did these two meet? While the show is what obviously brought them together, their first interaction is actually a whole lot cuter than just two stars showing up on set.

The hour-long drama series will follow the investigation into a series of unsolved murders in a neo-Victorian city that’s already boiling over with tensions between man and creature. Carnival Row — which, at one time, had the ever-busy Guillermo del Toro attached — will begin filming in the fall of 2018, for a planned 2019 release.

Are the Academy Awards really biased against blockbusters?

Angus Houvouras on whether the Academy Awards are really biased against blockbusters…

You’ve gotta love James Cameron. If ever a director has earned our collective respect, it’s the guy that brought us Terminator, Aliens, T2, The Abyss, and True Lies. Then again he also brought us Dark Angel, Avatar, Titanic, and a ringing endorsement of Terminator: Genisys. That last one is crazy enough to put a nice coat of tarnish on his platinum finish among film fans.

Cameron talked recently about how blockbusters are generally ignored by all the major awards. This generally accepted concept was challenged by Cameron who believes this line of thought to be blatantly unfair against the big budget movies that rarely get mentioned during award season when studios are promoting smaller stories and more dramatic fare.

Blockbusters have never really been considered Oscar bait in the creative categories. Sure, you’ll find
