Our upcoming network premiere of The Ghostmaker on Sunday really has us thinking. The movie's all about a couple of college kids who stumble upon an old coffin full of gears that allow for a transcendental experience. Anyone who lays down in the coffin can use it to walk through our world as ghosts. We love the idea, and started researching out-of-body experiences. There are so many stories of people having near death experiences and other similar out-of-body feelings that we had to dig deeper. Hoaxes, hallucinations, or something stranger? You decide.
What is an Out-of-Body experience?
Just like its title suggests, an Out-of-body experience, or OBE, is a feeling of leaving one's body and traveling away from it. Scientists account for this phenomenon as a sort of physical hallucination. Some believe this is actually the spirit leaving the body. While others think this is just an over-exaggerated dream. No matter the outcome, »

• More films to look out for in 2014
Ask a sci-fi fan to name the greatest ever year for genre movies and they will probably nod towards 1982, when Blade Runner, Et, Tron, Conan the Barbarian and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan hit cinemas. It's difficult to predict a return to such dizzy heights in 2014, not least because so many of the movies on offer are remakes, sequels or rip-offs. The celluloid world has had its edges rounded off since the halcyon days of the early 80s, but there's still plenty to get excited about.
Those who shudder at the thought of yet another year of superhero flicks will no doubt be pleased to hear that »

Academy Award nominee Mark Ruffalo (Marvel's The Avengers, The Kids Are All Right), Matthew Bomer (White Collar, Magic Mike), Taylor Kitsch (Lone Survivor, John Carter), Emmy winner Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory) and Academy Award winner Julia Roberts are set to star in HBO Films' The Normal Heart.
Directed by Emmy winner Ryan Murphy (Eat, Pray, Love, Glee) and written by Academy Award nominee Larry Kramer (Women in Love), adapting his groundbreaking Tony Award-winning play of the same name, the drama tells the story of the onset of the HIV-aids crisis in New York City in the early 1980s, taking an unflinching look at the nation's sexual politics as gay activists and their allies in the medical community fight to expose the truth about the burgeoning epidemic to a city and nation in denial. The Normal Heart will debut exclusively on HBO in May.

Stars: Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster, Yousuf Azami, Ali Suliman, Eric Bana, Alexander Ludwig, Dan Bilzerian, Jerry Ferrara, Rick Vargas, Scott Elrod | Written and Directed by Peter Berg
Director Peter Berg is not shy about letting the intentions of his latest film Lone Survivor be known. From the opening shots of real life Navy Seals undergoing intense physical and psychological training it is apparent Berg is using this to showcase the bravery of the men and women who volunteer to protect their country. Lone Survivor depicts the real life story of the botched ‘Operation Red Wings’ where four Navy Seals attempted to capture and kill a high ranking member of the Taliban.
This is certainly a story that needs to be told, and Berg does the story justice by crafting some of the most intense battle sequences since Black Hawk Down. You will feel the sharp sting of the hurtling bullets, »

While there’s nothing terribly new about The Legend of Hercules, which opens on Friday, there’s at least the joy of seeing Kellan Lutz shirtless for nearly 90 minutes. Lutz is the latest actor to bare all in a tiny loincloth (or similar gladiator-esque attire) on the big screen. Everyone from Russell Crowe to Brad Pitt has wowed fans with their bulging pecs, washboard abs and tiny frocks. Enjoy a Gif recap of these sexy leading men:
14) Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, The Scorpion King (2002)
After his breakout in The Mummy Returns, The Rock spins his bulging chest into a prequel film.
This flop is good for only one thing: Taylor Kitsch’s nipple.
12) Christopher Atkins, Blue Lagoon »

Acknowledges the powerful fraternity of soldiers without being jingoistic, and depicts the intensity and adrenaline of a battlefield without being pornographic. I’m “biast” (pro): have a sneaking affection for Mark Wahlberg
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
I have not read the source material
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
The spoiler is in the title: Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell was the only one to walk away — well, to get medevac’ed away — from a doomed 2005 mission in the mountains of Afghanistan to capture or kill Ahmad Shahd, a Taliban leader who’d targeted U.S. Marines and was an all-around villain. Now, writer-director Peter Berg, in a gripping bounceback from his deeply terrible Battleship, has adapted Luttrell’s story into one of the more realistic military movies ever (at least as far as someone who’s never been in the military can determine), one »

The synergistic machine of Disney is kind of mind-boggling.
Consider the multiple properties it owns, from Pixar to Lucasfilm to Marvel, and how each of these streams feeds into the other and it becomes a little overwhelming to comprehend. Take, for example, last week's announcement that Marvel Comics would now publish all "Star Wars"-related comic books, taking over from Dark Horse Comics, who had been publishing the four-color spin-offs for over 20 years. Disney owns Marvel and "Star Wars," so it should lead to perfect, cross-promotional bliss, right? Especially since the first books are scheduled to come out in 2015, around the time J.J. Abrams's "Star Wars: Episode VII" is released into theater. Right?
