Doctor Who Ep. 7.13, “Nightmare in Silver”: Disappointing ep showcases Smith but lets down most everyone else

Doctor Who, Series 7, Episode 13: “Nightmare in Silver”

Written by Neil Gaiman

Directed by Stephen Woolfenden

Airs Saturdays at 9pm (Et) on BBC America

This week, on Doctor Who: We meet Locutus of Doctor, Porridge has good taste in Queens, and the Cyberiad is back en masse

Life-long Whovian Neil Gaiman made a big splash with his first contribution to Doctor Who, series six’s fantastic “The Doctor’s Wife”. When word came out that he was returning in series seven to pen the return of the Cybermen, fans were understandably excited. Unfortunately, “Nightmare in Silver”, while it has its charms, is massively uneven and nowhere near as satisfying as the emotional and eminently rewatchable “The Doctor’s Wife”. This is one of the most qualitatively schizophrenic episodes in quite a while, so to best approach it, I’m ditching my usual format and going for bullet points.

British Psychological Thriller ‘A Thousand Kisses Deep’ Gives Us A Feast Of Content

With a cast including Dougray Scott, Jodie Whittaker, Emilia Fox and Brit legend David Warner, A Thousand Kisses Deep looks as if it could be a film to watch out for. Today we are swamped with huge collection of promotional material for the film directed by Dana Lustig. Below you will find the new poster, official plot synopsis, the first trailer along with a bunch of images. A Thousand Kisses Deep hits our screens 15th June.

Returning home from work, Mia (Jodie Whittaker – Good, Venus, St. Trinian’s & St. Trinian’s 2: The Legend of Fritton’s Gold) witnesses an aged woman leap from a window. Scattered around the old woman’s broken, lifeless body Mia discovers shredded pieces from a beloved photograph of herself and her former lover Ludwig (Dougray ScottHitman, Enigma, Mission Impossible II). Highly unnerved, Mia begs Max (David WarnerAvatar, Planet of the Apes, Titanic ), the buildings’ all knowing custodian,

First Look at Jodie Whittaker and Dougray Scott in New Poster, Trailer & Images from A Thousand Kisses Deep

Tomori Films have just served up the full works for their forthcoming film A Thousand Kisses Deep, namely a first look poster and trailer for the film as well as a smattering of images to tease and intrigue in equal measure.

The trailer below does hint at the larger story in play here, and the synopsis seemingly gives everything away so be wary of this when you cast your eyes down. The reason I’ll see it? Jodie Whittaker.

Attack the Block was a nice stepping stone to the side after her role in Venus, but it’s the lesser seen work that’s impressed. The recent short film Smoke and her Black Mirror appearance showed signs of greatness and I’m very hopeful she’ll seek out these challenging roles in the future. Here’s hoping A Thousand Kisses Deep gives her that opportunity.

A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas Review

Director: Todd Strauss-Schulson

Cast: John Cho, Kal Penn, Neil Patrick Harris, Danneel Harris, Paula Garcés

Running Time: 90 mins

Certificate: 18

Synopsis: It’s been six years since the stoner pair’s last outing, and things have changed quite a bit. But it wouldn’t be a Harold & Kumar movie without a bit of sex, drugs and rock n’ roll, as the duo cause a Christmas panic when they burn down Harold’s father-in-law’s prized tree on Xmas Eve…

It’s a depressing world we live in. The economy’s doomed, employment opportunities are a thing of the past and war is being waged all around us. So it’s not easy to get into the Christmas spirit. But of all the things to finally trigger the Xmas mood, I never expected it to be Harold & Kumar.

The boys are back in town for their third outing, which sees them grow up,

Box-Office Oracle: 'Puss in Boots' Attempts to Three-peat Over 'Immortals' and 'Jack and Jill'

You can imagine my consternation as Puss in Boots fell a miniscule three percent to take the weekend. Once again, the family dollar is the only thing you can count on in this economy. This weekend? It's gonna be close, people. Extremely close. Laremy predicted the #1 movie correctly 0 Weeks In A Row Puss in Boots A 30 percent drop is the prediction, hard to go more than that given last weekend's Avatar-like holdover number. I do worry about spending $130m here, feels $30m high, but they are going to make it all back and then some when you factor in the residuals. If you're looking for random trivia for tonight's cocktail party you should know that Puss in Boots needs another $80m to crack the Dreamworks Animation top ten. I'll take the under.

This is now also considered the 7th highest grossing "Swashbuckler" film of all time, behind only the Pirates franchise,

A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas Review: Ho Ho Ho

A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas is everything it needs to be. The latest installment in the stoner-comedy saga stays true to their well-known form, while still giving us everything we look for in a Christmas comedy.

But don't think you're about to see Elf; with a drugged out toddler, hallucinatory claymation sequence, and Jesus kicking back a couple shots in his father's afterlife-club, it's not a Christmas comedy for all ages. And that's exactly why I love it.

Six years since their release from Guantanamo Bay, Harold (John Cho) is now a straight-laced Wall Street executive who wants nothing more than to please his terrifying new father-in-law, after the family's sudden arrival to the suburbs for Christmas weekend. Kumar (Kal Penn) is still living in the duo's old apartment, lost in a pile of trash, junk, and paraphernalia.

After years of disconnect, a mysterious package brings our adventurers together; let the hi-jinks begin.

Todd Strauss-Schulson's "A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas"

  • MUBI
"Don't laugh if I predict A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas turns out to be both one of the most earnest and subversive studio releases of the season," writes Bilge Ebiri at Vulture. "The two concepts are not unrelated. This franchise has always had a dissident streak: The first film was mostly predicated on the novelty of an Indian and a Korean being stoner buddies, and the second attempted — and failed, but in a good-hearted, not-very-ambitious way — political digs at the War on Terror and George W Bush. This one starts with Harold (John Cho), now gone fully corporate, watching a gaggle of protesters outside his Wall Street office. Though this lucky bit of Ows topicality goes nowhere, the movie quickly turns its attention to Christmas, which as the conspiratorial War on Christmas has made clear, can be turned to political ends if need be."

"Thank goodness that the third film featuring postmodern,

A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas: A Highly Recommended Holiday Treat

A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas is, in a word, silly. But here's why I loved it: the ridiculous hijnks made me laugh out loud, the 3D actually makes the movie much better, and it packs just the right amount of humor and holiday cheer into the metaphorical pipe. It's been seven years since Harold (John Cho) and Kumar (Kal Penn's) fateful trip to White Castle, and they've grown up quite a bit since then. Well, at least Harold has - now married and settled down in the New Jersey suburbs, Harold has left his days getting high with Kumar behind in favor of making the big bucks on Wall Street and trying to start a family. Aimless Kumar, on the other hand, is hitting his bong harder than ever now that girlfriend Vanessa has dumped him. The former BFFs are brought back together by a mysterious package for

Review: A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas Throws Off a Few Sparks, Then Fizzles

The great news about A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas is that it features some of the most original 3-D effects this side of Avatar: Raw-egg splatter comin' right at ya, shockeroo Claymation penises that'll rock your world, nativity Jesuses blasting into the sky and lots of mystical-looking marijuana smoke wafting straight off the screen and into your very own lungs, visually speaking at least.

Box office: 'The Adventures of Tintin' is off to a solid start in Europe
Tintin and Snowy may not arrive Stateside until Dec. 21, but the sleuthing duo has also made quite an entrance in three European countries.

Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin debuted in first place in France, the United Kingdom, and Belgium on Wednesday, grossing $4.7 million, $3.5 million, and $240,000, respectively, according to Sony Pictures. The film’s first day in France puts it on track for the biggest opening in that country besides Avatar.

DVD Review: Robotropolis


Stars: Zoe Naylor, Graham Sibley, Edward Foy, Lani John Tupu, Jourdan Lee | Written and Directed by Christopher Hatton

Aussie actress Zoe Naylor, whom we last saw in creature-feature The Reef, takes the lead in the second full length feature from writer-turned-director Christopher Hatton, and like his previously film Avatar (no, not That one) the film is yet another future tale, this time based on the age old sci-fi cliche of robots – built for servitude – rising up and attacking their human masters.

Robotropolis takes place in a South East Asian community called New Town, a futuristic utopia built buy a global oil conglomerate to home the workers at a large petrochemical platform, where robots carry out the many mudane and often day-to-day tasks, including help run the oil platform, in a complete integration of man and machine.

Feel the 3-D in New 'Harold & Kumar' Trailer

"It makes 'Avatar' look 'Avatarded.'"

That's a pretty bold statement, but the "Harold & Kumar" movies have never been afraid to stir up a little controversy (and break a few cinematic taboos).

The trailer for the stoner duo's latest adventure, "A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas," wastes no time in getting down to the raunchy shenanigans, opening with Harold shooting Santa Claus in the face and just getting more... well, R-rated from there.

"Christmas" apparently has something to do with Harold and Kumar on the loose in New York City looking for the perfect Christmas tree, but there's no trace of a "plot" in sight in the trailer... which is, of course, just fine.

And yeah, it looks like Neil Patrick Harris is going to steal the show once again with another seemingly effortless meta-performance as his sort-of self.

Check out the trailer below, courtesy of Yahoo! Movies.

‘A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas’ Theatrical Trailer

While it's not beginning to look a lot like Christmas just yet, the trailer for A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas is a great start. The film hits theaters November 4 and once again stars John Cho and Kal Penn as everyone's favorite hamburger munching potheads. This time around, they'll get into it with Santa Claus, Jesus and - of course - Neil Patrick Harris, all in 3D. Check out the trailer after the break. Thanks to Yahoo Movies for the trailer. I'm a huge fan of the first Harold and Kumar and while I remember liking the second one, I remember very little about it. That said, when this trailer started, with the whole swerve of it being a family Christmas movie followed by the oddness of shooting Santa Claus and seeing Neil Patrick Harris talking to Jesus, I was very skeptical. But as the trailer moves along, it gets stronger and stronger.

These days, Jonathan Frakes is a captain in his own right.

The former Star Trek: The Next Generation actor and director makes his living mostly behind the scenes with a plethora of directing gigs, notably on The Glades, Leverage, Burn Notice and even V, to keep on fresh sci-fi.

Jonathan's latest gig is to direct tomorrow night's episode of the Community TV series Bar Karma, an interactive experience engineered by The Sims creator Will Wright and Spike TV founder Albie Hecht, where the internet community literally creates the story for each individual episode.

The Hobbit studio wrecked in blaze as filming gears up for January start in 3D

It looks like the dragon Smaug has struck early. A studio for The Hobbit has been gutted by fire, just as production on the two-part film adaptation is expected to get the green light.

Firefighters spent three hours putting out the blaze at a warehouse in Wellington, New Zealand, which housed Jackson's Portsmouth Miniatures Studio.

The $3.2million studio would have been used for shooting special effects sequences on The Hobbit, it's been confirmed. At this stage, it's not clear what impact - if any - the fire will have on production.

The scene is now being inspected by fire experts and insurers to assess the extent of the damage. There was a man in the building at the time but he escaped unharmed, reports Tvnz.

Meanwhile, the much-troubled project is close to being greenlit by Warner Bros and MGM, who are sharing the costs. The Los Angeles Times reports that
