Well, thanks to a bevy of fanatical temperance groups who thought liquor would lead to the […]

Eibf 2014: George R.R. Martin on Game Of Thrones, writing...

Here's what George R.R. Martin had to say about A Song Of Ice And Fire, writing, Game Of Thrones and characterisation at this year's Eibf...

When George R. R. Martin is not writing or aiming expletives at the fans who find it appropriate to speculate about his death, he’s probably on the road. After stopping off at San Diego Comic Con last month and with a mini-tour of the UK this month (southern fans can attend an evening with the writer and fellow fantasy scribe, Robin Hobb in London on the 19th of August), Martin is a busy man. Many will be dissatisfied to see he isn’t slaving over The Winds Of Winter, the sixth instalment in A Song Of Ice And Fire (for the reaction just look to Twitter: ‘Lock Yourself Away And Finish The Winds Of Winter, Your Grace’ and ‘I long for the day when

Mindy Newell: How Unforgetable Sentences Can Help You Make Magic

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…

Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities, 1859

The other day two grandmothers, Mindy and Lynette, were visiting their beloved grandchild Meyer Manual. After playing and cooing and aahing and watching Alixandra attempt to feed him mashed bananas, 99% of which ended up on his bib and his chin and my elbow and just about everywhere but in his mouth, Lynette said she had to split. As she was leaving, she said to me, “I love your columns. You’re such a good writer.” (Be that as it may.) I said, “I don’t know where it comes from, I never had any formal training.” Lynette laughed, and said, “Well, I had formal training, and I can’t write like that.”

Well, I don’t know how good a writer I am; I always think I could be a gazillion-million times better.

R.I.P. Final 'Deathly Hallows' Trailer Marks The End Of Harry Potter Promos (2001-2011)

Many of us will remember the first time we saw a trailer for the "Harry Potter" franchise. Settling down to the Warner Bros. family comedy, "See Spot Run," which the trailer was attached to, the first glimpse of what would become the biggest franchise of all time was sneaked out, and people left the theater with one overwhelming impression: '"See Spot Run" was a piece of shit. Since then, clips have emerged every six months or so for the eight movies in the series, and we've watched those children grow up in front of our eyes in a series of…

Quote of the Day: George R.R. Martin on ‘The Case for Comic Books’

  • Comicmix
George R. R. Martin. Image via Wikipedia

As part of the coverage of Game Of Thrones debuting on HBO, the New York Times quoted author George R. R. Martin delivering a speech at Ambercon 3 in Wichita, Kan., on May 31, 1981.

Every would-be writer needs comic books. I certainly did. I can still vividly recall my discovery of comic books, followed closely by the revelation that this reading stuff was actually good for something. Because comic books had it all over Readers. Comic books had pictures, and so did Readers, but in comic-book pictures somebody was flying or punching somebody, while in my Reader little Sally was crying about her little red boat. Even in my prepubescent days I had this vague feeling that Wonder Woman had it all over Jane, although I couldn’t put my finger on the reason. I did know that watching Spot run was a real drag

The Notable Films of 2010: Part Seven

Mother and Child

Opens: 2010

Cast: Naomi Watts, Annette Bening, Samuel L. Jackson, Kerry Washington

Director: Rodrigo Garcia

Summary: A tale of a mother and daughter, separated at birth, who struggle with the damage done by the most important person missing in their lives while a young African-Americn woman deals with an unwanted pregnancy and the adoption process.

Analysis: Scoring rave reviews in Toronto, the $7 million latest effort of Rodrigo Garcia ("Nine Lives," "Things You Can Tell Just By Looking At Her") once again shows off his skill at weaving multiple narratives together in clever and unexpected ways. At its heart it's an emotional family drama, but Garcia excels with his female characters which makes the involvement of Naomi Watts, Kerry Washington and especially Annette Benning thrilling.

The few criticisms levelled at the film were toward some pacing and credibility issues in the last act, but otherwise praised it for not

Berenstain Bears Movie Coming to Theaters

There are only a couple of reason why you clicked through to read this article. A) You have kids and they still enjoy reading the books and watching the cartoons made popular by Jan and Stan Berenstain or B) You have a morbid sense of curiosity and just had to see what all the hubbub is about.

Either way, the news is true; Coming Soon points to a report from USA Today stating that Walden Media has bought the movie rights to produce The Berenstain Bears movie adaptation. The film will be a comedy with a mix of live-action and CGI (of course it will). No 3D has been announced yet, but just wait, it won’t be far behind, I’m sure.

On top of grabbing a rather obscure childrens’ property (maybe obscure isn’t the right word, let’s say ‘lesser-known children’s property’) like the Berenstain Bears,

[DVD Review] Wrong Turn

Working title: “Wrong Turn: With Apologies to the State of West Virginia”

“Killer hicks in the backwoods” as a film premise has been done before. What differentiates Wrong Turn from the rest is that it failed to do it well. It failed to do anything well. Put out a low-budget horror flick starring a sex symbol like Eliza Dushku wandering about in the forest and you’ll make back your production costs off of horny teenage boys alone. Wait for it to hit DVD and you’ll know for certain that you’ve got a franchise on your hands. It’s an unfortunate trend of Hollywood which benefits films like Wrong Turn and the talentless mooks who put them together. So unless you can prove you purchased this Blu-ray for the extra features alone, you’re guilty of perpetuating that cycle yourself. Shame on you.

In the meadow, we can pan a snowman

You better watch out You better not cry You better have clout I'm telling you why Two Thumbs Down are comin' to town He's making a list,

Checking it twice;

Gonna find out whose

movie was scheiss.

Sandy Claws is comin' to town.

He sees you when you're (bleeping),

He knows when you're a fake

He knows if you've been bad or good

So be good for cinema's sake!

With little but scorn

and pounding of drums,

Rooty toot hoots

and rummy tum thumbs

Sandy Jaws is comin' to town

As I dream back over many happy years of movie going, some of my favorite lines from old reviews dance in my head like visions of sugarplums. Good movies, bad movies, doesn't matter, just so the line dances. I thought I'd share them in the holiday spirit. Curiously, most of the lines come from movies so bad I didn't want a refund,

Leslie Bibb Hates British Food
See Spot Run beauty Leslie Bibb won't be visiting England any time soon - because she thinks the country has weird food. The sexy blonde admits during a recent trip to Europe she ate the strangest food she'd ever tried - and as a result is reluctant to return to British shores. She admits, "In London I tried that Marmite s**t. Do you know what Marmite is? It's black butter that is like taking a cup of the dead sea and drinking it. It's awful."
