Recommended Films in Times of Madness: Singing Kidnappers and Dancing Puerto Ricans Will Make You Forget Ballistic Missiles

4 July 2017 11:36 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Fourth of July movies: A few recommended titles that should help you temporarily escape current global madness Two thousand and seventeen has been a weirder-than-usual year on the already pretty weird Planet Earth. Unsurprisingly, this Fourth of July, the day the United States celebrates its Declaration of Independence from the British Empire, has been an unusual one as well. Instead of fireworks, (at least some) people's attention has been turned to missiles – more specifically, a carefully timed North Korean intercontinental ballistic missile test indicating that Kim Jong-un could theoretically gain (or could already have?) the capacity to strike North America with nuclear weapons. Then there were right-wing trolls & history-deficient Twitter users berating National Public Radio for tweeting the Declaration of Independence, 140 characters at a time. Besides, a few days ago the current U.S. president retweeted a video of himself body-slamming and choking a representation of CNN – courtesy of a gif originally created by a far-right Internet »

Emmys: How the 'Planet Earth II' Cinematographer Filmed Komodo Dragons With "Teeth Like Steak Knives"

23 June 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Planet Earth II — the BBC’s epic sequel to its 2006 nature documentary series, Planet Earth — involved 42 different camera operators, who filmed in 40 countries over the course of a four-year production schedule. That included photographing such rare creatures as snow leopards and Komodo dragons in a wide range of remote, and sometime dangerous, terrains.

Cinematographer Mark MacEwen related that, during the shoot, the team also aimed for a “more intimate, involving style” to tell the David Attenborough-narrated stories. “Wildlife programs have more usually been very observational, long-lens style, and for this series, we wanted to try and take the »

First Soundtrack Trailer Heads to the Arctic for Eco-Drama

22 June 2017 10:30 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

The first trailer for Soundtrack sets up a very cold premise, starting with its setting: the Arctic. Its very strong, serious, dramatic tone suggests that something more is going on under the surface. The official synopsis provides more details: The Soundtrack of a life. Cris (Selton Mello), a young artist still trying to find his place on the tough world of arts, gets from Brazilian Government special permit to stay a month in an isolated international research station surrounded by nothing but ice. His goal is to prepare an exhibition mixing music and photography. Cris will go against his own defined concepts and values, as he spends time with other researchers discovering Planet Earth on an never seen perspective. This shock will result on this...

Emmy Predictions 2017: Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series

14 June 2017 11:24 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last Year’s Winner: “Making a Murderer

Still Eligible: No.

Hot Streak: “American Masters” has been nominated 10 years in a row and won five times.

Fun Fact: Outside of “American Masters,” only one other program has been nominated more than once: “American Experience.”

It’s been 11 years since the TV Academy honored “Planet Earth” with its top nonfiction honor (plus three more awards), but we doubt they’ve cooled on the gorgeous, addictive BBC series. So we’re expected the sequel, “Planet Earth II,” to do well come nomination day. But it’s not the only contender with big ambitions at the Emmys. “American Masters” is the most dominant series in the history of this category, and Netflix has a number of offerings that could make a run.

“The Keepers” is the would-be successor to “Making a Murderer,” which won last year. The docu-series has been building comparatively moderate buzz, »

Watch the Genesis Alpha One E3 trailer here

13 June 2017 7:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve been following the brief glimpses of Genesis Alpha One from Award-winning international games label Team17 and Germany-based indie developers Radiation Blue for a few months now.  This rogue-like, Fps with elements of base-building and survival has already pricked numerous levels of interest.   In the E3 trailer (which you can watch below) we’re introduced to Ida, the AI onboard the USS Genesis that will be guiding us – the players – to save humanity from the brink of extinction.

Planet Earth has succumbed to war, pollution and corruption. Before all is lost, Earth’s major corporations create the Genesis Programme, tasking a fleet of ships with a journey into uncharted space on the ultimate mission: to find a suitable new home for humanity’s DNA.

Combining a unique mix of genres Genesis Alpha One allows players to build and customise their vessel, farm resources, deal with terrifying alien infestations, clone creatures and explore a vast, »

Taystee Is the Real Star of ‘Orange Is the New Black’ (Column)

13 June 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not watched Season 5 of “Orange is the New Black,” which premiered June 9. If you want a non-spoiler review of the season, click here.

Season 5 of “Orange Is the New Black” may well be the show’s strongest season yet. As I wrote when I reviewed the season last week, the show typically defined by sprawl becomes sharper and more poignant when its canvas is limited to just three momentous days in Litchfield Penitentiary. Because TV shows carry with them their own inertia — that groove that sometimes becomes a rut, as shows figure out what satisfies their loyal viewers and are content to deliver that again and again — it’s often breathtaking when a drama shakes up its own comfort zone and drills down to the heart of its premise.

Up until now, “Orange Is the New Black” has emphasized survival for its characters and loss, as »

Samira Wiley Would Have Never Auditioned For Oitnb If It Wasn't For Danielle Brooks

12 June 2017 6:30 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Samira Wiley and Danielle Brooks play onscreen best friends Poussey Washington and Taystee Jefferson, respectively, on Orange Is the New Black, but their relationship goes far beyond the Netflix show. In fact, their friendship can be traced back to college. Samira moved to New York from Washington DC after high school to study theater at Juilliard, and on the first day of Danielle's freshman year, she met Samira, who just so happened to be the orientation leader helping her move in. "I was met with her screaming 'Wooooooooo! Welcome To Juilliard!'" Danielle recalled in an April interview with The Cut. Samira and Danielle instantly hit it off, playing beer pong with friends and watching Planet Earth at Samira's apartment.

Al Gore Blasts Trump's Pullout of Paris Climate Agreement as 'Reckless' (Video)

2 June 2017 6:41 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

[[tmz:video id="0_neulrrci"]] Al Gore vows Planet Earth will be cleaned up with or without Donald Trump. The former Veep landed at Lax Thursday and quickly excoriated the Prez for pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord, calling the decision "reckless" and "indefensible." Gore then doubled down and said Trump is now irrelevant and the snowball is already rolling down the hill at high velocity and can't be stopped. It seems the strategy now is to wall off »

Something Strange Going On...

1 June 2017 9:14 AM, PDT | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

Long Strange Trip (Amazon Video)

I was stoked have scored a ticket for the limited-run (one week) theatrical screening of the new Grateful Dead documentary at IFC Cinema in the West Village. A four-hour love fest for Deadheads young and old, and more importantly for those music fans and the curious who just never got "it" and what it means to be a Deadhead. Expertly handled by director Amir Bar-Lev, there is so much to mine here that I can't imagine how much was left on the cutting room floor. (Props to executive producer Martin Scorsese, too.) Jerry's Frankenstein story frames the movie in a way that initially seems odd but by the end of the film makes perfect sense. After all, like the Monster, the band was "assembled" by the various parts (members, friends, fans, staff) that comprised it. Messy, joyous entropy in action; seemingly random, but actually spiritually »

Jane Seymour on How Roger Moore Put Her at Ease When She Was a Nervous 20-Year-Old Newbie on Live and Let Die

26 May 2017 1:17 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

He was just the second man to play James Bond since Sean Connery, and she was a 20-year-old newcomer taking on the mantle of “Bond girl” in her first major role.

But looking back on Live or Let Die some 44 years later, Jane Seymour tells People that despite the pressure on both of them, Sir Roger Moore was always in her corner.

“He was very caring to me because I was a newbie,” the actress, 66, tells People. “I was 20 years old and had never been anywhere or done anything and was terrified of the whole experience, and he literally made jokes around me, »

Doctor Who Series 10 Episode 7 Review – ‘The Pyramid At The End Of The World’

26 May 2017 4:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Villordsutch reviews Doctor Who Series 10 Episode 7: The Pyramid At The End Of The World…

Directed by: Daniel Nettheim

Written by: Peter Harness & Steven Moffat

Doctor – “What do you depend on?”

Nardole – “Air, Water, Food, Beer.”

Following on from last week’s rather excellent Extremis – in which we discovered that not only was virtually the entire episode a simulation for an upcoming invasion of Earth, but also what occupied the Vault under Bristol University – this week’s episode, written by both Steven Moffat and Peter Harness (The Zygon Invasion/Inversion), marks the initial step over ‘the line in the sand’ for the corpse-like Monks.

It’s ‘take-two’ with Bill and Penny, and as they sit discussing in Bills flat the supposed goings on that happened during their last “date” – and the failed evening of romance due to the rude injection of his Holiness the Pope – they are again interrupted but »

The Met review – an engrossing look at policing London

24 May 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

From riots and stabbings to supporting sex workers and high-speed chases, there’s never a dull moment. Plus: The Inbetweeners become double-glazing salesmen in White Gold

From the helicopter camera, it looks like a nature doc – the Serengeti, or somewhere like that, where huge gatherings of wildlife run about in different directions, scared because there are predators about. But these are not zebras and wildebeest, they are people. And it’s not the Serengeti, but Hyde Park in London, the commentary not from David Attenborough but a concerned-sounding police officer. “As you can see, there is mass migration in all directions,” he says. Not Planet Earth, but The Met (BBC1).

It’s midsummer and an impromptu full-moon gathering is happening. When the cops tried to close it down, scuffles broke out. Now all hell is kicking off and a couple of police officers have been injured. The crowd has dispersed, »

Melania and Ivanka Wear Veils as Donald Trump Exchanges Gifts with Pope Francis in ‘Stiff’ Meeting

24 May 2017 5:41 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

President Donald Trump met Pope Francis at the Vatican on Wednesday in an exchange described by witnesses as “stiff.”

Trump was flanked by First Lady First Lady Melania and First Daughter Ivanka, who strictly stuck to the dress code. Just days after they ditched headscarves in Saudi Arabia, the women wore long-sleeved black dresses and veils for the Pope.

“Per Vatican protocol, women who have an audience with the pope are required to wear long sleeves, formal black clothing, and a veil to cover the head,” Stephanie Grisham, the first lady’s communications director, told CNN.
