Strange Hill High: The best kids' show on television

28 August 2014 10:28 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

"Kids' TV isn't what it used to be."

We've all said it, our rose-tinted spectacles firmly affixed - but there's an animated show airing right now on Cbbc that's earned plaudits across the board.

Strange Hill High - a fantasy mystery series created using a combination of puppetry and digital effects - was nominated for a BAFTA in 2013 and has been branded "sharp, funny" and "a sure-fire success" by critics.

Set in a school filled with fantastical secrets, the series follows the quick-witted and street smart Mitchell Tanner (Doc Brown), ever-confident Becky Butters (Emma Kennedy) and class nerd Templeton.

"It's my favourite thing that I've ever done - even more than The Simpsons," says head writer Josh Weinstein, who penned some of the Springfield clan's most memorable episodes - 'Who Shot Mr Burns?' , '22 Short Films About Springfield' and more - and worked as showrunner on the long-running animation »

This Is Heavy, Doc! Hoverboard Concept Art For Back To The Future II

23 March 2014 5:13 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In 1989's Back to the Future Part II, Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) is chased by Biff's grandson, Griff Tannen, and his gang. In order to getaway Marty borrows a pink-colored hoverboard (Mattel) from a young girl. The scene plays out in similar fashion to the 1950's skateboard scene from the original film. Concept Art by John Bell, via Film Sketchr Getting back was only the beginning as the most spectacular time-travel adventure ever continues in Back to the Future Part II - the sequel that proves that lightning can strike twice! Picking up precisely where they left off, Marty and Doc (Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd) launch themselves to the year 2015 to fine-tune the future and inadvertently disrupt the space time continuum. Now, their only chance to fix the present is by going back to 1955 all over again before it is too late. From the Academy Award-winning filmmakers »

We Saw 35 Minutes of 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' and It's Pretty Impressive

20 March 2014 5:40 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Yesterday (March 19), we were treated to a special presentation of about 35 minutes of footage from "Amazing Spider-Man 2," the highly anticipated superhero sequel coming from Sony on May 2, presented by director Marc Webb.

We're going to run down what we saw, so if you're particular about spoilers, it's best to turn around now (swing away!)

If you want to know what our general impressions are, you should know that we were pretty impressed. The first film, while filled with winning moments, thanks mostly to that ridiculously agreeable cast that was led by Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, is more of a disappointment than not, a warmed-over retread of Sam Raimi's original "Spider-Man," with more emo pop music moments and an unconvincing lizard-man villain.

From what we saw today, "Amazing Spider-Man 2" is much, much better. The movie seems to move at a much better clip and the action is just »

“An Act Of Love” Doc: Small Town Minister To Lgbt Activist

11 March 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

While some of us would see the act of a Reverend officiating at the marriage of his gay son and partner as beautiful, others might not have the same opinion, and through this real life ‘act of love,’ Rev. Frank Schaefer went from being a small town minister to speaking out as an activist for Lgbt people and causes. A new documentary examines Schaefer’s journey and has gained a popular television star as a supporter.

Schaefer, a Minister at a United Methodist Church, performed his son’s marriage in December 2013 and was subsequently convicted in a church trial and stripped of his credentials. However, instead of letting the controversy quiet him, Rev. Schaefer became vigilante in spreading news of the injustice on a multitude of news outlets, including  appearances on The View, CNN, MSNBC and the CBS Evening News.

Guardian Film Awards longlist announced

17 January 2014 7:22 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

• 12 Years a Slave takes eight nominations in the inaugural longlist, but there's also recognition for The Selfish Giant, Wadjda, Alan Partidge: Alpha Papa and many more

Claudia Winkleman and Adam Curtis join Guardian staff and readers to vote for a set of awards that aim to act as antidote

Visit the official awards site

12 Years a Slave may have been just pipped to the post at this year's Oscar nominations, but there is consolation for Steve McQueen: his film dominates the longlist for the first ever Guardian Film Awards.

The awards, which aim to act as an antidote rather than an addition to the established slate of ceremonies, will be handed out at a winners-only event in London just after this year's Academy Awards. The awards reflect Guardian values in two ways: first in terms of categories - Best Actor, for instance, is open to both genders, reflecting Guardian »

How Nick Cave Lost His V-Card, and More From the Rocker's Sundance Doc

16 January 2014 2:50 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Most music docs chop up concert footage, edit in screaming fans and call it a day. Far too often, it feels like you're watching the exact same film, only recast with different bands. But Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard's 20,000 Days on Earth, about apocalyptic rock poet Nick Cave, is something very different. The filmmakers and Cave create staged scenarios, in which Cave improvises naturally, that explain his creative process. He's shot driving in a car three times: with tough-guy English actor Ray Winstone in the passenger seat, Australian singer Kylie Minogue in the backseat, »
