This Seal was Chillaxing on an Iceberg! The sad dumbing down of nature shows

22 hours ago | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Planet Earth is fragile, majestic and awe-inspiring ... though you may not think it if you’d watched nature programmes like World’s Sneakiest Animals and Dogs Make You Laugh Out Loud. Stop giving classy shows clickbait names

Nature programmes, by their very existence, remind us of our place in the world. They are majestic and awe-inspiring. They show us that planet Earth is cruel and fragile and that, while unthinkable hardship is everywhere, solace can always be found in the simple beauty of a raindrop splashing on a soft leaf. Admittedly, this may not be something you realised if you happened to watch recent shows such as Cats v Dogs: Which is Best?, or World’s Sneakiest Animals, or Dogs Make You Laugh Out Loud.

Because, Christ, those titles. There was a time, not so long ago, where nature shows came with lofty, audience-respecting titles such as The World About Us and Life on Earth. »

A Petition to Have Snoop Dogg to Narrate a Season of Planet Earth Has More Than 40,000 Signatures

31 January 2016 6:17 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Democracy (from the Greek demos, "the people," and kratia, "power") has been the foundation for many of the great accomplishments of Western Civilization: Greek culture, the American Revolution, the fall of tyranny everywhere, and that time Kelly Clarkson won American Idol. Now, the people have combined their powers Captain Planet-style in an attempt to add yet another jewel to democracy's shimmering crown: More than 40,000 have signed a Change.org petition to have Snoop Dogg narrate his own season of Planet Earth. The movement is inspired by Jimmy Kimmel segments called "Plizzanet Earth" wherein the illustrious Snoop provides voiceover for the BBC series originally narrated by David Attenborough and (in the U.S. version) Sigourney Weaver. The petition, which Kelly Ooton of Lincoln, Nebraska posted on January 28, makes its case succinctly: "Snoop Dogg has narrated some Planet Earth in the past but yo we need him to narrate full episodes.

Sundance 2016 Interview: Richard Bates Jr. and AnnaLynne McCord Talk Trash Fire

27 January 2016 10:23 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Writer/director Richard Bates Jr. and AnnaLynne McCord first came together several years ago to create Excision—the haunting tale of a young woman’s obsession with surgery that takes a tragic turn—which premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. The duo have returned to Park City this year for their latest collaboration, Trash Fire, which recently celebrated its debut as part of Sundance’s stellar Midnight selections.

Trash Fire follows Owen (Adrian Grenier), a troubled 20-something who wants to reconnect with his family—and his sister Pearl (McCord) in particular—after he learns some life-altering news from his longtime girlfriend (Angela Trimbur) and realizes he needs to atone for his past mistakes.

Daily Dead had the opportunity to catch up with both Bates Jr. and McCord during the festival to hear more about their experiences collaborating together on this personal tale of redemption and dealing with your demons. Bates Jr. »

Watch the Director of 'The Raid' Experiment With Doing a Bloodless Action Scene

25 January 2016 5:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The Raid and The Raid 2 have some of the best fight scenes not just of the last few years, but of the entirety of mankind's existence on Planet Earth. That may sound like hyperbole, but it's not. Those two movies are why people immediately started wondering when director Gareth Evans was going to make a Hollywood movie, the train of thought being that if he can deliver that kind of action on relatively small budgets, imagine what he would do with a massive budget. There's a big gap in that train's tracks, though. Hollywood doesn't make movies like The Raid. Sure, Hollywood loves action. Hollywood loves fighting and explosions and ridiculously elaborate chase scenes. But the Hollywood version of those scenes is rarely, if ever, as genuinely violent as...

‘X-Files’ Return By the Numbers: Fox Reboot Ratings Reach Rarefied Atmosphere

25 January 2016 3:51 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

“The X-Files” is back on Planet Earth (and Fox). Just don’t blink, believers: After tonight, the revitalized alien-hunting series has just four more episodes in its new run — but impressive initial figures for the new version might mean more is on the way. Fox, which doesn’t play live-plus-same day TV ratings publicly anymore, is certainly celebrating privately after using the Nfc Championship to launch its revitalized series to strong numbers. Per admittedly wonky fast national Nielsen figures, “The X-Files” debuted to a gaudy 5.1 rating in the key 18-49 demographic on Sunday, when it hauled in 13.5 million total »

Honoring the Starman: Belgian Astronomers Create Lightning Bolt Constellation in Tribute to David Bowie

18 January 2016 9:35 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Planet Earth was plenty blue after David Bowie's Jan. 10 death, but a group of Belgian astronomers have decided there's something they can do about that. Belgium's Mira Public Observatory has registered a group of stars "in the vicinity of Mars" in the shape of Bowie's iconic lightning bolt makeup - first featured prominently on the cover of Aladdin Sane. It's probably the most fitting tribute to the space-obsessed musician his fans could ask for. "Referring to his various albums, we chose seven stars," Mira's Philippe Mollet said in a statement. "Sigma Librae, Spica, Alpha Virginis, Zeta Centauri, Saa 204 132 and »

Netflix To Distribute French Documentary ‘Je Suis Charlie’

4 January 2016 10:21 AM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Netflix is adding another foreign title to its library. The streaming video platform will distribute the French documentary film Je Suis Charlie, thanks to a licensing deal with European arthouse sales company Pyramide International.

Directed by father-and-son duo Daniel and Emmanuel Leconte, Je Suis Charlie recounts the terrorist attack on the Charlie Hebdo magazine offices in Paris in early 2015. The Leconte team, who were close friends with cartoonists who were killed in the attack, provide several first-hand accounts about the incident, expert interviews about what led to the tragedy, and even archival footage of Charlie Hebdo editor-in-chief Charb and deceased cartoonist Cabu, who drew the prophet Muhammed on a 2006 cover of the magazine. Netflix will start streaming Je Suis Charlie on January 7, 2016, on the first anniversary of the attack. Variety originally reported the story.

Over the last few months, Netflix has worked to add more documentary-style titles for the platform’s subscribers to enjoy. »
