TV: Rich Hall's The Dirty South

Last chance to watch or download this excellent history of the American south on film. Rich Hall (right) followed up his equally interesting wild west history lesson with this one-off TV essay, picking apart the Southern belles and good ol' boy cliches with clips from A Streetcar Named Desire, Deliverance and, of course, Gone With The Wind.

TV: Master Of The Universe

With Prof Stephen Hawking's Brave New World beginning on Monday, here's a chance to bone up on his earlier mind-blowing journey through some of the bigger questions around: is an all-encompassing Theory Of Everything possible? Is there a grand design to the cosmos? Whatever happened to She-Ra? That sort of thing.

DC Comics New 52: Green Lantern: New Guardians #1 - review

30 September 2011 2:36 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

In the latest of our comprehensive series of reviews of DC Comics' 52 relaunched titles, we take a look at Green Lantern: New Guardians #1. Who's it by?

Green Lantern: New Guardians #1 is written by Tony Bedard (R.E.B.E.L.S.) and drawn by Tyler Kirkham (Mysterious Ways). What's the history?

Green Lantern has a history back to 1940, with the introduction of the magic ring-wielding Alan Scott. The concept was revamped in 1958 into its more familiar and modern form, introducing Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps. When Jordan was corrupted, taking up the mantle of Parallax and dismantling the Corps, the one remaining power ring passed to artist Kyle Rayner, who first appeared in Green Lantern (vol 3) #48 in 1994, created by Ron Marz and Darryl Banks. The character was very different from his predecessors (more) »

Toronto: The U2 documentary 'From the Sky Down' isn't just good, it's downright transcendent

15 September 2011 8:59 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

As the Toronto Film Festival winds down, I want to tell you about one last movie I saw there — a movie that, for me, turned out to be the most surprising one of the festival. I went to a showing of From the Sky Down, a documentary about U2 directed by Davis Guggen- heim, with more or less one thought in my head: Do I really need to see another U2 documentary? There was U2: Rattle and Hum (1988). There was the concert film U2 3D (2008). There was the edition of VH1′s Classic Albums in which the Edge showed you »

Showtime's U2 Documentary "From The Sky Down" Debuts At The Toronto Film Festival

11 September 2011 3:24 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

From Left to Right: David Nevins, Bono, The Edge, director Davis Guggenheim.

The Toronto Film Festival kicked off this past weekend and one of the films to open up the annual festival was Showtime's upcoming documentary, From The Sky Down, which chronicles the making of the timeless U2 classic album, Achtung Baby.

Originally released in 1991, Achtung Baby is most known for containing notable U2 tracks such as "Mysterious Ways," "Until The End of the World," and the universally and critically acclaimed "One," which has gone on to be used as a theme song for many causes from AIDS Awareness to social injustice. What most U2 fans, or rather average ones, don't know is the drama that went on behind the scenes during the creation of the album. Achtung Baby also marked the beginning of U2's famous ZooTV tour that lasted for three years and led into the group's follow-up album Zooropa. »

U2's 'Achtung Baby' gets expansive 20th anniversary reissue

5 August 2011 11:29 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Hey, how much do you like U2? A lot? Did you help contribute to their historic 360 touring run? Do you hope and pray to hear "One" and "Mysterious Ways" and "Acrobat" in a big way? And, perhaps, do you have about $630 to spare? The Irish rockers are preparing a traditional and expanded reissue on their 1991 album "Achtung Baby" for its 20th anniversary, and by "expanded" I mean death-defyingly excessive. Or Uber Deluxe, if you're their handlers. This six-cd, four-dvd, five-7" boxed kit may not get you out of the woods when and if you get lost, but it »

U2 on Tour Part Two: Bono Pays Tribute to Clarence Clemons

WSJ U2 at New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

There was a rumor that Bruce Springsteen would make a special appearance at the latest stop on U2’s 360º tour, New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., but it didn’t happen. No matter. U2 electrified the massive, sold-out venue on its own.

But frontman Bono did thank “The Boss” for loaning them the New Jersey stadium, and during the encore, he paid tribute to Springsteen’s late saxophonist, »

Suchat Pederson / The News Journal Bono at the Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia

Over the course of two hours at U2′s 360 Tour show last night in Philadelphia, Bono mentioned Burma, the Middle East and AIDS in Africa. He devoted songs to Gabrielle Giffords (her husband Mark Kelly made a taped appearance from space) and Nelson Mandela. Amnesty International members brought lanterns out on the stage and Burmese political prisoner (released last November) Aung San Suu Kyi made a videotaped impassioned plea. »

18 April 2011 1:18 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Top Cow Productions has released a teaser for a new project, Mysterious Ways. The image shows pictures of nine infamous murderers - including John Wayne Gacy, Charles Manson, Ted Bundy and Jeffrey Dahmer - with the caption, "Who will be our saviour?" Writer Jason Rubin and artist Tyler Kirkham's title was announced at Comic Con International last year. Its first issue appeared in the First Look trade paperback last October. "Mysterious Ways is a story that follows a brutal yet reluctant serial killer convinced that he is doing God's work by wantonly slaughtering innocent women," said the publisher in its solicitation.
