Code Red has been going “code blue” of late, releasing the likes of Nail Gun Massacre and Just Before Dawn on Blu-ray. We now know of seven more forthcoming Blu horror titles from the 70s, 80s, and 90s they have in the works to further empty your wallets in the coming year.
We haven’t come across any official word from Code Red regarding these newest offerings so it may be that Blu-ray.com let the proverbial cat out of the bag by listing these titles for future release the other day. In any event, here are the details:
First up, for the first time ever, a director’s cut of Jim “Forced Entry” Sotos’ 1983 chiller Sweet Sixteen, starring the all-star cast of Aleisha Shirley, Don Stroud, Bo Hopkins, Dana Kimmell, Patrick Macnee, Susan Strasberg, Larry Storch, Henry Wilcoxon, and Michael Pataki.
You may already know that I’m a fan of ABC Family generally, and Pretty Little Liars theoretically, and Ravenswood looks to continue with the background perspective that has resulted in this view. Pretty Little Liars has managed a popularity that is nothing short of amazing, despite being a show that might seem to have a built-in maximum longevity, and the show is now spinning-off to the not-absolutely-similar Ravenswood.
We follow Caleb Rivers (Tyler BlackBurn), Hanna’s boyfriend (or whatever), to the town of Ravenswood, because some curious things happen that seem to connect to him and/or his family. We enter the show straight off the back of the Pretty Little Liars Halloween Special, and before you know what’s happened, Caleb and Miranda Collins (Nicole Gale Anderson) have stumbled upon their own graves, complete with pictures, and they’d like to know what’s going on there.

Maddie’s extended bout of the Terrible Teens comes to a finish on this week’s Nashville, and the end of that pouting, fresh-mouthed spot of bother is a true relief.
While I think Maddie’s sulkiness is understandable, considering what’s happened in her life as of late, I’m glad it’s done; few people want to relive their adolescent years, no one wants to watch them be the focus of an hour-long drama.
Elsewhere in town, Gunnar and Will yell at each other, Scarlett’s “girls” get manhandled, Deacon goes on a date and Teddy’s streak »

In this week’s episode of The Newsroom, Acn’s Operation Genoa story falls apart like me during the last 15 minutes of Beaches. A bunch of questions are answered, at least one opportunity (in my opinion) is missed and three News Nighters throw themselves on their journalistic swords to save the reputation of the network. Let’s assume crash positions as we review the epic – I’m sorry, “institutional” – failure that goes down in “Red Team III.”

This week on Pretty Little Liars, Mona plays evil Yoda to Hanna only to ultimately double-cross her in the nicest way possible. If I wasn't already convinced Mona was in big gay love with Hanna, I certainly would be after this episode.
Elsewhere, Spencer continues to play Nancy Drew, while Emily is still the only one actually concerned about getting into college.
Meanwhile, off in storyline limbo, where she lives permanently sewing her outfits out of spare bits of discarded comic books and leftover feathers, Aria does nothing more than shill for Insidious 2. Hey, did you know it's coming out next weekend? Now you do!
It's been more than a decade since the 1990s ended, yet the Internet can't seem to go a day without a reminder of the neon slap bracelets that may have been banned from your school.
Yes, we get it. Times are tough and there's comfort in reflection, but enough is enough.
Below, a final goodbye to the 90s to end the nostalgia once and for all. (We're not kidding. There are 1990 items below.)

What would Nancy Drew think?
Emma Roberts (who brought the character to life in the 2007 film) was arrested on July 7 in Montreal for a domestic violence incident involving her boyfriend Evan Peters ("American Horror Story"), TMZ reports.
Roberts, whose dad Eric Roberts was arrested in 1995 for shoving his wife into a wall, was taken into custody after someone called police to report a fight in the room she was sharing with Peters, wherein they found the actor with a bloody nose. Law enforcement sources tell the website that Peters also had a bite mark.
The actress was released hours after her arrest after Peters chose not to press charges. Sources close to Roberts tell TMZ that the two were, in fact, hitting one another and she was arrested only because he had the obvious physical injuries. This set of sources deny that she ever bit Peters.

Villordsutch reviews The X-Files Classics Vol. 1...
"The truth is… in here! Team up with Mulder and Scully as they unravel mysteries only seen in comic books! This first collection features stories like 'Not to be Opened Until X-mas', 'Firebird', 'Trepanning Opera', 'Silent Cities of the Mind' and more."
I can recall many moons ago when the huge tentacled X-Files monster ran rampant throughout the world. It stared at you with its square eyed, addictive gaze and it snared you. It occupied your waking life and it made you buy magazines like FHM for a secret peep at Scully in her skimpies, or read cool interviews with Mulder in GQ, so you to could be Mulder cool too. There was one thing that eluded me, my newsagent and the local WHSmith - The X-Files comic. Get your hands on one of these and you’d scored. The adventures continued in those pages. »

Thank goodness it only took four episodes to reveal Warlow's identity: it's Ben! Was anyone that surprised? Probably not. In fact, we discussed last week how there's no way a seemingly perfect guy can waltz into Sookie's life and actually be perfect. Instead he's the vampire who killed her parents and she is sworn to, which is sort of romantic in a way, right?
Fortunately she doesn't think so either, and planned a perfectly tasty silver-filled feast to try to kill him once she connected the dots that Ben is actually the vampire who's tormenting her. While she used a little Nancy Drew detective skills to figure it out, Jason realized in a slightly less glamorous way. After his injury in "You're No Good," Ben-low used his vampire blood to heal the non-fae Stackhouse, causing Jason to have sexy straight razor shaving dreams about Ben. That leads Jason to have »
If you left watching "Inception" scratching your head and wondering what your eyeballs just spent the last 148 minutes observing, you are not alone. Not only do millions of viewers feel the same way, one of the film's actors isn't even sure what's going on: Ellen Page.
Page, who plays grad student-cum-dream archictect Ariadne in the film (alongside va-va-voom hotties Leonardo DiCaprio and Joseph Gordon-Levitt), spends an awful lot of time asking questions. In fact, curiosity almost kills Page when dream residue knocks her right off her chair mid-question. So much for knowledge being power or whatever.
From simple "whys" to none-of-your-business accusations, no topic or question is off limits for Page. Check out this supercut, and take comfort in knowing that "Inception" is such a »

“We can’t make a move without Nancy Drew?”
Pretty Little Liars is doing what it does best and keeping you guessing all the way to the end in its usual frustrating fashion. Just when you think you have ‘A’ figured out, she throws you a curve ball from somewhere out in left field – and she isn’t concerned about the consequences either.
‘A’ has set her sights on an older crowd these days and seems bent on showing the Liars just how much control “she” has over their lives. We’ve seen her target the parental units before, so it’s no surprise she would go there, but she’s taking it to a new level now. Is ‘A’ conspiring to remove all the Liar’s parents? Because if so, her plan seems to be working.

Yesterday, when Devin at Badass Digest called out the Microsoft E3 presentation for what he saw as casual sexism and rape jokes, I was all set to roll my eyes and move on. Devin, one of my favorite writers about film and media, sometimes comes at games and gamers pretty hard, and it felt like he was reading too much into some pretty typical fighting game trash talk.
Then I had to take a step back and look at the context of the moment: in a presentation woefully lacking in female corporate presence onstage, we had one of only two women being held up as the "bad girl gamer stereotype." This, in an overall presentation and slate of trailers and announcements across all of the publishers that seemed to still think that the only games their audiences would respond to would be very white and very male.

Emma Roberts; the actress formerly known as ‘Julia Roberts’ Niece’, is gearing up for her first full-on adult comedic turn in the hilarious looking We’Re The Millers. In which a fake family, made up of drug dealers, strippers and a couple of young degenerates, get together to move some pot across the Mexican border and make some money. Roberts may still be young, but she’s already aimed for a more diverse career than her famous aunt, with roles in horror Scream 4, British action gangster film 126.96.36.199. and now this. She’s a long way from her turns in Nancy Drew, Aquamarine, Wildchild, and Hotel For Dogs (maybe I’ve seen too many Emma Roberts films, and by “seen” I mean “own”). Still, she’s got a long way to go to match her father, the legendary Eric Roberts, who takes on everything from Spun, to The Dark Knight, »

Review Ron Hogan 4 Jun 2013 - 08:00
This review contains spoilers.
There are times when I watch Teen Wolf that it makes me feel incredibly self-conscious about my actually viewing the programme. There are a lot of elements I like about the show, but every so often it lingers a little too long on a shirtless male actor in his early twenties and I'm instantly reminded that this isn't the kind of show a guy over thirty is generally tuning into. That's kind of a shame, because I feel like if it was a show on The CW, it would be getting much more of the attention that it deserves for actually being a good action series.

A plodding Argentine potboiler that examines the country’s history of harboring Nazis after WWII, “Wakolda” poses the question: What would you do if the dapper German doctor you invited into your home turned out to be Josef Mengele? That premise could be just juicy enough to earn writer-director Lucia Puenzo’s third feature a modest international audience, though she goes about the execution all wrong, leadenly reverse-engineering her plot from a reveal that the vast majority of audiences will know from the get-go. The fact that Puenzo (“Xxy”) published “Wakolda” as a novel first could benefit awareness in some markets.
For unsuspecting porcelain doll-maker Enzo (Diego Peretti) and his wife, Eva (Natalia Oreiro), the prospect of inviting a distinguished foreign physician to be the first guest in their new boarding house has its perks. Their underdeveloped 12-year-old daughter, Lilith (remarkable newcomer Florencia Bado, who serves as the film’s »

Emma Roberts is the new name to add to ever expanding cast of Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story: Coven. The FX show will return in the fall, and I expect we haven’t even begun the casting updates on this puppy.
The cast now includes Emma Roberts, Frances Conroy, Taissa Farmiga, Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Gabourey Sidibe, Angela Bassett, Patti Lupone, Gabourey Sidibe and Lily Rabe. »

Evan Peters, John Cusack, Armando Riesco, Cloris Leachman and Shannon Woodward also star. Producers are Justin Nappi and Kevin Turen of Treehouse Pictures with Joy Gorman and Alex Goldstone of Anonymous Content and Manu Gargi.
Story, penned by Andy Cochran, centers on a young woman living with her parents who’s anxious to get her poetry career off the ground. She begrudgingly accepts a job at Adult World, the local sex shop.
Ronnie Schieb wrote in her review for Variety: “Coffey’s loose, casual style, tilting toward the performance-centric and improvisational — as with his 2005 debut, ‘Ellie Parker,’ starring genius-caliber actress Naomi Watts — cannot fully accommodate the presence »

Singer-actress Deanna Durbin, who was the highest-paid female star in Hollywood in 1947 but permanently exited the movie biz the next year at the age of 26, has died, her fan club announced Tuesday. The announcement did not give a date or cause of death. She was 91.
Durbin initially landed at MGM after a successful audition for a part in a planned biopic of opera singer Ernestine Schumann-Heink. She actually made her film debut in the 1936 MGM short “Every Sunday,” with Judy Garland (the two were only six months apart in age), and the opera film was never made. Soon thereafter Universal signed Durbin to a contract.
Her first film at U was “Three Smart Girls” (remade decades later as “The Parent Trap”). That big box office hit, in which she played the perfect teenage daughter, paved the way for many more of the same, and Durbin was credited with saving the studio from bankruptcy. »

Three very cool looking pieces of new poster art have been released for Shane Black's Iron Man 3. The first poster above is the wrap poster for the movie, which is what the cast and crew received when they were done shooting the film. There's no word on whom the artist is yet, but as you can see, the art style was definitely inspired by the classic covers of the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew novels. This poster will never be available for purchase.
Then below, we've got a couple of Mondo posters for the film! The first one is by Martin Ansin, and the other is a special glow in the dark print by Phantom City Creative. These will go on sale this Friday at a random time.
Make sure to follow their Twitter account @MondoNews to find out when the posters go on sale.

The above image comes courtesy of EW and their Cape Town Film Festival. They're giving one lucky attendee the chance to take home the above poster that was made exclusively for the cast and crew of Iron Man 3. The art style definitely harkens back to the yesteryears of classic Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew novels. No word yet on the artist behind the poster but a name will probably surface soon.
