Snoop Dogg's Plizzanet Earth Is Your New Favorite Show

1 July 2014 8:34 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

No one knows nature quite like Snoop Dogg, and the rapper stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! this week to prove it. Plizzanet Earth looks unsurprisingly similar to Planet Earth, except it's hosted by Snoop Dogg, and he's mostly talking about ram fights: "I've never understood rams. What do they get out of this?" It's kind of like watching Discovery Channel next to Snoop Dogg, and honestly, who doesn't want to do that? »

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey’ will cause a supernova in your mind

13 June 2014 8:39 PM, PDT | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

Science has been under attack of late and I’m not sure why. Some want to tear down the discoveries and words of caution by scientists, as if to discredit them like an urban legend. No one wants to put money into space programs anymore, and there are those who continue to bury their heads in the sand when it comes to the environment, greenhouse effect, global warming and other scientific truths. It’s not always easy to understand science but to outright deny it is a movement that is befuddling as much as it is frustrating. So what better time than to revive Cosmos, the TV show hosted by the late scientist Carl Sagan, who succeeded in breaking down the walls of science, putting the discoveries in a digestible format that would help communicate the wonders of science to non-scientists.

Takashi Shimizu’s 7500 Opened Somewhere on Planet Earth

12 June 2014 7:24 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

A few years have passed since myself and a handful of genre colleagues ventured to the CBS lot in Studio City for a set visit to Takashi Shimizu's 7500 - the ghost story-on-a-plane thriller. And by "few years" I mean three. Cameras rolled in 2011 with Ryan Kwanten, Amy Smart, Leslie Bibb, Nicky Whelan and Alex Frost starring. And yet, we've haven't see the film released domestically. There have been rumors over the years pointing to false release dates. Hell, one theater here in Los Angeles accidentally listed it on its website, but when you went to buy tickets it directed you to another film.

The post Takashi Shimizu’s 7500 Opened Somewhere on Planet Earth appeared first on Shock Till You Drop. »

Why a lack of risk-taking with Ant-Man is bad news for Marvel…

1 June 2014 6:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Commenting on the Critics with Simon Columb…

The Ant-Man news regarding Edger Wright’s (and Adam McKay’s) departure gained a considerable amount of coverage and criticism. Forbes writer, Scott Mendelson, manage to argue a point that may not seem so obvious, claiming “Hollywood Doesn’t Care About ‘Fanboy’ Approval”:

“They will protest and criticize, perhaps rightfully so, but they will be the first to post or share the first poster and the first trailer and the first clip. The hardcore fans are the least important demographic for the likes of Walt Disney and Warner Bros. because they are already sold on the property in question.”

Read the full article here.

While I agree that hardcore fans are a sure-sell, we have been in this Universe since 2008 – and after Avengers Assemble in 2012, we have had two films a year (with a double-film year in 2011 also). I know that personally, »

One of Earliest Surviving Academy Award Nominees in Acting Categories Dead at 88

1 June 2014 2:41 AM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Joan Lorring, 1945 Best Supporting Actress Oscar nominee, dead at 88: One of the earliest surviving Academy Award nominees in the acting categories, Lorring was best known for holding her own against Bette Davis in ‘The Corn Is Green’ (photo: Joan Lorring in ‘Three Strangers’) Best Supporting Actress Academy Award nominee Joan Lorring, who stole the 1945 film version of The Corn Is Green from none other than Warner Bros. reigning queen Bette Davis, died Friday, May 30, 2014, in the New York City suburb of Sleepy Hollow. So far, online obits haven’t mentioned the cause of death. Lorring, one of the earliest surviving Oscar nominees in the acting categories, was 88. Directed by Irving Rapper, who had also handled one of Bette Davis’ biggest hits, the 1942 sudsy soap opera Now, Voyager, Warners’ The Corn Is Green was a decent if uninspired film version of Emlyn Williams’ semi-autobiographical 1938 hit play about an English schoolteacher, »

Veteran Bergman Star, Coen Bros' Cast Members to Star in Sw: Episode VII

29 April 2014 6:25 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Star Wars: Episode VII’ cast announced (photo: ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ cast member Max von Sydow in ‘Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close’) Star Wars: Episode VII cast members have been announced. The world had been waiting with bated breath. Who will The Force be with? Well, not with humankind and its fellow Earth dwellers (apart from cockroaches and various types of worms) — if news reports about the eventual fate of the planet are accurate. But don’t despair. The End credits for Planet Earth should come after Lucasfilm and Walt Disney Studios (instead of former Star Wars film distributor 20th Century Fox) amass a few more billion dollars following the release of a whole array of new Star Wars sequels in the coming years. So, the announced (mostly European) Star Wars: Episode VII cast members are, to date, the following: Oscar Isaac (Sucker Punch, widely praised for his performance in Joel »

Here's a clip of Stephen Colbert talking about boobs on tonight's 'Late Show'

22 April 2014 4:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"The Late Show with RuPaul"? Now that would've been a scream. But because we live on the Planet Earth, Stephen Colbert was chosen to take over the late-night franchise from David Letterman, and he's admittedly a fantastic choice for the job. Here's a clip from his appearance on tonight's episode, during which he offers a ray of hope to boobs everywhere. Yes, you. Follow Riot on Twitter »

What to watch, Earth Day edition -- Video

22 April 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Earth Day, the perfect occasion for you to kick up your feet, sit on the couch, and watch some movies. Okay, so this may not be the traditional way to celebrate the day, but it is something good to do after a day of volunteering — or a day of thinking about volunteering.

The first Earth Day was April 22, 1970, and has been celebrated each April 22 since then. It’s a day to honor the Earth, to help the Earth, to think about the Earth. Lots of Earth. Now’s a tricky time for this lovely ol’ planet though, with global warming »

‘Bears’ a gorgeous but untrustworthy new documentary from Disneynature

17 April 2014 9:05 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Bears

Written by Alastair Fothergill and Adam Chapman

Directed by Alastair Fothergill and Keith Scholey

UK and USA, 2013

During its fledgling years as a film studio, the Walt Disney Company helped revolutionize the nature documentary with its True-Life Adventure series. Here, as never before, audiences could thrill to the story of seals, beavers, bears, tigers, and the rest of the creatures sharing space with us on Earth. These days, what is most striking about these early documentaries is less the physical ground they cover, and more that they come from a patient time in filmmaking. Documentaries like The Living Desert and Seal Island featured narration and music, and sometimes attempted to play up the humor of an animalistic situation, but they were still created by people who afforded their presumed audience a base level of intelligence. In some respects, these nature documentaries were born out of the insistence on »

Blood Moon To Appear Tonight: Total Lunar Eclipse Visible

13 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

From Monday night into Tuesday morning, a Blood Moon will be visible from North America, caused by a total lunar eclipse.

Blood Moon

The lunar eclipse is said to start around 12:54 a.m. Et on Tuesday, April 15, but the moon will not be totally eclipsed until around 3:07 a.m. Et, and therefore will be most visible then. The total lunar eclipse will last from 3:07 a.m. to 4:25 a.m. Et.

Despite the late hour, what makes this lunar eclipse stand out is its name: a Blood Moon. During a total eclipse, the way the light is refracted in the Earth’s atmosphere makes the moon appear deep red, thus inspiring the name of Blood Moon.

Total Lunar Eclipse Visible In North America

Interested people in North and South America should be able to see the Blood Moon shine bright red around 3:07 a. »

Film Review: ‘Bears’

9 April 2014 9:58 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The quid pro quo thrown down by the Mouse House’s Disneynature series is pretty straightforward: If you can stomach the cheesy narration and the contrived storyline, you get a wealth of fairly glorious wildlife footage courtesy of “Planet Earth” auteur Alastair Fothergill in return. For the series’ latest installment, this proves to be an entirely fair trade. Though still clearly targeted toward the youngest of sensibilities, “Bears” is far less obvious in its pandering and desperate in its anthropomorphism than its 2012 predecessor, “Chimpanzee,” and thanks to its emphasis on actual ursine behavior, it seems unlikely to offend any attendant parents or zoologists in wide release.

Every production helmed by Fothergill (who shares director credit here with Keith Scholey) is bound to include at least one “never seen that before” moment of natural weirdness or grace. In “Bears,” the defining shot is an ultra-slow-motion, ultra-high-def image of an airborne salmon »

'Mindy Project' recap: 'I don't know why, but I still want to hit it'

8 April 2014 9:09 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Say it ain’t so, Mindy Project!

Last week’s double header of Mindy was all about secretly kissing one Danny Castellano – complete with a Bridget Jones-worthy ending that made everybody swoon. And last night, things seemed to be moving along right on schedule with our 2014 Mr. Darcy. A happy Mindy announced via voiceover that Danny was sleeping at her place and that dating a co-worker? It kind of ruled.

The opening moments/montage – that featured both Mindy and, once he caught on, Danny coming up with work excuses to bring the other into their office so they could »

Film Review: 39-Minute IMAX Doc ‘Island of Lemurs: Madagascar’ With Morgan Freeman Feels Incomplete

5 April 2014 5:17 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – It’s challenging to enjoy this film purely for what it is rather than fault it for what it could have been. “Island of Lemurs: Madagascar,” which opened exclusively in IMAX 3D and 2D on April 4, 2014 and is narrated by Morgan Freeman, is only 39 minutes. The film too simply grazes the surface of a complicated problem.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

It feels like an elementary-school field trip rather than a film ready for nationwide IMAX distribution. It’s tough to tell if that’s because it was so expensive to film with IMAX cameras or because that’s as much of a story as is warranted by this adorable arboreal primate who is getting marketed as “nature’s greatest explorer”.

Read Adam Fendelman’s full review of “Island of Lemurs: Madagascar”.

Either way, it’s an incomplete project that only starts to touch the surface of elements it needed to be a full body of work. »

Can 'Cosmos' Save Science Television?

31 March 2014 8:25 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

With his nondescript blazers and mild manner, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson is an unlikely radical. But make no mistake: in an age of evolution skeptics and climate change deniers, the defense of science he levies as the host of "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey" is nothing short of revolutionary. Of course, a similarly grand sense of purpose accompanied Carl Sagan's "Cosmos: A Personal Voyage" when it premiered on PBS in 1980, eventually attracting 400 million viewers in 60 countries. That the iconic original resulted in no definitive triumph for factuality might lead the discerning critic to offer a more cautious assessment of the revamped "Cosmos," but its very existence -- in the midst of Sunday's packed primetime landscape, no less -- is a bold statement. We're here, we're peer-reviewed, get used to it! Beyond public television's old guard ("Nova" and "Nature" on PBS, "The Blue Planet" and "Planet Earth" on the BBC), much »

New Toy Company Immortalizes Cryptid Legends in Plastic

26 March 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

This past weekend's HorrorHound Weekend convention saw the unveiling of the first series of action figures from brand spankin' new toy company Creatureplica, whose mission is to add research-accurate toys of cryptozoological heavyweights like Bigfoot to the collections of those who are fascinated by the beasts that just might be roaming around here on Planet Earth, undiscovered and unseen by man.

Noticing a lack of serious toy lines dedicated to cryptid beasts, sculptor Jean St. Jean started Creatureplica to fill that void, and he says that his action figures will bring these mythical creatures to life in a way that we've never before seen, from other toy companies. While most on the toy scene depict monsters like Sasquatch and the Loch Ness Monster as being fun and cartoony, St. Jean is all about sculpting them based on witness accounts and extensive research, showing us what they truly might look like, »

The HeyUGuys Interview: Brendan Fraser talks Escape from Planet Earth

7 March 2014 3:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

This weekend sees the release of Escape from Planet Earth, a family film that follows a hapless alien who’s trapped on the dangerous Planet Earth, and his attempt to escape a horrible fate at the hands of the humans. Brendan Fraser provides the voice of Scorch Supernova, the blue-skinned extraterrestrial hero, in a role that sees the loveable actor continue his run of family-friendly movies after Furry Vengeance and Inkheart, and as an aside to his more independent, serious fare such as Gimme Shelter and Breakout.

When we spoke with the actor we expected a straight-forward interview. How very wrong we were; the following conversation includes some singing, a bit of ice cream tasting, and a dash of Charlie Chaplin, proving why Fraser is the go-to guy if you’re looking to give your movie some spark. Read on on and enjoy.

Hi Brendan, how are you doing?

Complete Buffy reviews: The Wish

3 March 2014 3:48 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

[This episode review contains foreshadowing for future episodes, and the following review comments on this, though sometimes indirectly. Depending on your tolerance for spoilers, you may or may not wish to continue reading if you haven't finished watching the show.]

A big pot of gold delivered to your door. World peace. No more EastEnders on TV. Wishing may well be the most common pastime on Planet Earth, just inching ahead of backgammon and darts.

But as the old saying goes: “Be careful of what you wish for”. Cordelia's taking this advice on board a bit too late after new kid in town Anya (in reality, a scary, veiny demon) grants her wish of Buffy never coming to Sunnydale. This can only mean one thing: Alternate Dimension Time.

The Alternate Dimension is a common trope in fiction, in films such as It's A Wonderful Life. It's especially popular in science fiction. Doctor Who came up with Inferno, in which Jon Pertwee's Doctor found himself on a parallel Earth, just hours away from doomsday. Worse still, he had to battle with vicious, unkind counterparts of his friends, including Liz and the »
