It kind of a strange curiosity that sometimes films get tagged with generic titles that have horror catchphrases or words that are horror staples (i.e. blood, devil, dead).
Sometimes too, the poster art for a film does it a disservice. Put both of those typical occurrences together, and you have the makings of creating the likely possibility of looking over a pretty good film. Add the final nail to the proverbial coffin with a high profile Hollywood director that had a heyday in the style over substance action film era of the late 1980’s and 90’s, and this one may get scrolled through the Netflix selections without a second thought or glance. Such may be the unjust fate of this film Devil’s Pass directed by Renny Harlin.
I’m not anti Renny Harlin by no means, but someone who doesn’t have »
Your shows may be in reruns now, but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to watch this Christmas week. If you look around, you’ll find marathons of TV shows past (Breaking Bad), classic holiday movies (A Christmas Story), new installments of (a few!) current faves and, lest we not forget, Nikita‘s very final mission. So while those chestnuts roast on the fire, relax on the couch with these Christmas picks.

Simon Kinberg must be one of the busiest people in Hollywood at the moment. He's just signed a three-year deal with Fox to oversee the studio's Marvel slate including the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Fantastic Four and X-Men: Apocalypse, he's got adaptations of Rust and The Martian in the works, and he's also set to produce Kenneth Branagh's Cinderella, Neill Blomkamp's Chappie, and an as-yet-unrevealed Star Wars spin-off for Disney. And that's not Kinberg's only involvement with the galaxy far, far away either, as he's also executive producing the animated series Star Wars Rebels, and he's taken a brief break from his hectic schedule to discuss the upcoming show in a new behind-the-scenes featurette...

Update: I like to include the dates of when movies First get announced they are getting made so we can all keep track of just how long it can take. In this case, I'm friends wtih the Schwatz family and so I know from their accounts how painfully long it takes for things to get going...but now, Gilligan's Island the movie is finally getting going! Josh Gad, he who made Olaf the most lovable snowman ever, will star and co-write the script. It would Seem that he would play Gilligan, right, even though Gilligan's lanky body was part of the joke and Gad isn't "lanky." Small details! If Tom Cruise can play Jack Reacher, a character known to be a 6'6" blonde, and Daniel Craig can play James Bond, who Ian Fleming wrote as having a dark face with a 3-inch scar running down his cheek, well then, Gilligan can be a little chubby! »

Those who don’t know history are destined to repeat it — or, you know, die in the process.
It seems Curve Studios caught wind of my battle cry. You see, after completing the studio’s excellent 2D platformer, Stealth Inc: A Clone In The Dark earlier this year, I immediately wanted more. It wasn’t so much about the continuation of the story as it was the desire to take on more excruciating challenges — solving puzzles and fooling AI, Solid Snake-style. Alas, the developers have answered the proverbial encore with Stealth Inc: The Lost Clones; the second and final batch of downloadable content for the intense and inspired genre piece.
If Stealth Inc: A Clone In The Dark introduced us to the ruthless milieu of PTi Industries — think Aperture Laboratories on a power trip — then The Lost Clones explores the factory’s underlying history. As such, the titular, world-wearing replicas serve as the in-game collectibles, »

Identity is a curious thing. Many people spend their entire lives trying to figure out what they want to occupy their time with, who their real friends are and why they do anything all. And that’s what people do under normal circumstances, so obviously things get a lot more complicated when you have no memory, have had reconstructive plastic surgery and now have no real idea of who you actually are.
That’s where Iain Softley’s Trap For Cinderella picks up. It begins with Micky (Tuppence Middleton) waking up in a hospital bed covered in third degree burns. She remembers almost nothing of her past life or her accident, which means she’s at the mercy of her Aunt’s assistant (Kerry Fox) to figure out which of her memories are real and which are fabricated. As the story goes on, more and more is leaked to Micky »

WrestleMania Mystery sends the gang on a trip to Wrestle City, where — shocker! — they find themselves in supernatural sleuthing mode.
A mysterious ghostly bear is on the rampage, wreaking havoc on WrestleMania and attempting to steal the championship gold belt. Before you can say, "ruh-roh," Scooby, Shaggy, Fred, Daphne and Velma join forces with the lords of the wrestling ring to sort out the bear facts.

Exclusive: After appearing in almost all episodes of The Bridge‘s first season, recurring cast members Emily Rios and Matthew Lillard are being promoted to regulars for Season 2. The move also signals their characters’ increasing importance in the upcoming storyline. Rios and Lillard play El Paso Times reporters Ariana Mendez and Daniel Frye. In the season one finale, the two came across a home filled with cash that will lead to an investigation on both sides of the border in the second season. The Bridge also is undergoing a behind-the-scenes change, with Meredith Stiehm, who developed the series with Elwood Reid and served as executive producer/co-showrunner on Season 1, returning to Showtime’s Homeland full-time, with Reid taking over day-to-day-responsibilities on The Bridge. (Stiehm remains an executive producer.) Rios, repped by Domain and Kass Management, is probably best known for playing Jessie Pinkman’s ill-fated girlfriend Andrea Cantillo on Breaking Bad. »

"Star Wars Rebels continues the epic tradition of the legendary Star Wars saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures. It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world.

But there are a select few who are brave enough to stand up against the endless Stormtroopers and Tie fighters of the Empire: the clever and motley crew of the starship Ghost. Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, have thrilling adventures, and become heroes."

"The Facts of Life" remains to be one of the most loved classic TV sitcoms ever. Originally airing on NBC from 1979 to 1988, it was the longest running sitcom of the 80s.
On Tuesday (Dec. 3), cast member Kim Fields welcomed a second baby with her husband Christopher L. Morgan. Born at 10:30 a.m. Et, the baby boy has been named Quincy Xavier Morgan, brother to 6 1/2 year old Sebastian.
The news that Tootie Ramsey has two kids made us wonder: What are the rest of her cast members up to now?
Along with her two sons, Fields' next project is "Holiday Love: The Rebirth," a holiday special she directed and executive produced with her husband.
The actress who played Blair Warner toughed it out on "Survivor: Phillipines" despite not being a fan of reality TV. She even made it to the finals, but lost in the end to Denise Stapley. »
This is where we start a war. We'll lose friends, and cause controversy. Because somewhere on this list below is something you're dying to see. In fact, you might be fanatical about some of these inclusions (Christopher Nolan fans, we're staring straight at you). But it's inevitable. And unavoidable. Hollywood is releasing hundreds of movies in 2014. Some of them will be good. Some of them will be bad. And some will be box office disasters. In compiling this list, we're not declaring that all, or even any, of these movies will be unwatchable. Some will be quite good. Maybe even a masterpiece or a classic in the making. There are a few that we're desperate to see ourselves. We really want them to succeed. But every movie here is a risk taker. And some of this shit? Hollywood should clearly know better. These are the 14 Biggest Potential Bombs of 2014.
Lucasfilm has debuted another impressive poster for their latest animated adventure Star Wars Rebels. In a similar manner to the previous poster, it tells very little about the plot, instead reflecting Soviet era propaganda. For those without easy access to C-3Po, the writing reads, "Enlist - The Empire is the Future"...
Set between Episodes III and IV, Star Wars Rebels takes place in a time where the Empire is securing its grip on the galaxy and hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights as a fledgling rebellion against the Empire is taking shape. Produceed by Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Simon Kinberg (X-Men: First Class) and Greg Weisman (Young Justice), Rebels will feature the likes of David Oyelowo (Lee Daniels' The Butler), Freddie Prinze Jr. (Scooby-Doo), Vanessa Marshall (Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox), Taylor Gray (Bucket and Skinner's Epic Adventures), and Steve Blum (The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes »

Up until 2005, Charles Roven was a fairly successful Hollywood producer with “Three Kings,” “12 Monkeys,” “City of Angels,” “Cadillac Man” and a pair of “Scooby-Doo” movies. Then “Batman Begins” provided a high-octane boost to his Hollywood trajectory.
He’s one of the few producers with 10 films that have grossed at least $100 million worldwide, and yet he doesn’t have the name identification of a Jerry Bruckheimer or a Scott Rudin. In a way, he represents the best of both worlds: His commercial success doesn’t come at the expense of critical acclaim.
In a career dating back to 1983’s “Heart Like a Wheel,” he has worked with a wide spectrum of filmmakers, including perfectionists with behemoth budgets like Christopher Nolan (the “Batman” trilogy); scrappy filmmakers who work on the fly like David O. Russell (“Three Kings,” the upcoming “American Hustle”); fanboy idols like Zack Snyder (“Man of Steel” and the upcoming »

Writers: Paul Zbyszewski,
Director: Vincent Misiano,
Synopsis: A camp is terrorised by an unseen force which leaves a man dead, hovering in the air.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is back after a week’s hiatus that instead saw the cinematic release of Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World on the big screen. It’s a film I’m yet to see, but reviews have most certainly been mixed. Well, they can’t all be winners, but surprisingly (at least to me) the latest episode in the Marvel based TV show had some moments I would simply describe as stunning. This was also in the week where Marvel and Netflix announced a further 4 TV shows based on Marvel properties were in the works, so Agents really needed to bring their A game if they »

Doctor(s): Ninth Doctor, Tenth Doctor
Story: 3 stories (4 episodes): “Father’s Day” (May, 2005), “Rise of the Cybermen”/“The Age of Steel” (May, 2006), “Doomsday” (July, 2006)
Background: Pete is one of only a handful of characters on Doctor Who that audiences meet in separate dimensions, including Companions Liz Shaw, the Brig, Mickey Smith, and ally Jackie Tyler (though we only meet her doppelganger very briefly). First introduced as Rose’s father who’d died when she was a baby, a bit of a dreamer and get-rich-quick schemer who, though his heart was in the right place, wasn’t the best husband, the Pete we spend more time with is an incarnation from an Alternate Dimension, affectionately called “Pete’s World” by the Doctor. This version found success with one of his early schemes and is a well-respected, incredibly wealthy executive and inventor. In this timeline, »

The first Thor was a commendable effort in superhero films. It did what it was supposed to, which was open the boundaries of the Marvel film universe from the confines of the United States and Midgard (Earth) to all the corners of space and the realms in between. Thor set the ball, The Avengers spiked it. Thor also successfully launched Chris Hemsworth as a Marvel films leading man, a believable son of Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and heart throb for unwilling parties being dragged to the theaters. But there was much to be desired as a stand-alone tale, even by its most ardent fans. There was a forced and awkward romance with Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), Loki (Tom Hiddleston) was a bigger star than its title character, Thor spent much of the film powerless and Asgard, the elite realm of the nine, is a ghost town in the film’s climax. »

This week on Reign, Tomas turns out to be too good to be true and Mary and the boys need to get their Scooby Doo on in order to uncover a conspiracy. It's a fast-moving and action-packed hour, which ends with a return to status quo. The ending is also a hopeful sign pointing to Mary's position being secure enough to ditch the device of putting her wildly in danger every week. »
