Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 7 Review – ‘Kill the Moon’

6 October 2014 5:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Villordsutch reviews Doctor Who series 8 episode 7 – ‘Kill the Moon’….

Clara:  Doctor, tell me there wasn’t anyone inside that thing.

Doctor:  I could, but it wouldn’t make it true.

Our Doctor Who story this week is a tale of the Doctor taking the high ground, so high in fact Clara gets the distinct impression he’s looking down his nose at her.  As with previous episodes of morality in NuWho e.g. ‘Beast Below‘ the Doctor turns upon the human race and decries its savagery and this time refuses to be involved in the final decision – leaving Clara, a school-girl and an a remaining astronaut with the fate of the Planet Earth and a single Lifeform –the last of its kind – in their hands.

I adored this episode, though from the accompanying promo still and the attacking mobs I was expecting a spider packed show and I was surprised »

1 October 2014 12:48 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

AMC Networks has agreed to acquire a 49.9 percent stake in BBC Worldwide's BBC America for $200 million. The cable networks company and the commercial arm of U.K. public broadcaster BBC announced the deal Thursday after reports of their talks first emerged over the summer. The channel airs such BBC favorites as Doctor Who, Sherlock, Top Gear and Planet Earth. "A combined AMC Networks-bbc America channel group creates a powerful collection of networks that are among the most critically-acclaimed, with distinct dramas and other potent content that creates a deep connection with viewers," said Josh Sapan,

Which members of the 'Legion of Superheroes' will make it the next 'Guardians'?

19 September 2014 11:06 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After Marvel's massive success with "Guardians of the Galaxy," is anyone surprised about the report that Warner Bros. is considering developing a "Legion of Superheroes" movie? We're certainly not. Granted, the two super teams have a lot in common, but thankfully, they also have some big differences. Chances are you probably haven't heard of the Legion. Or if you have you only know them from their short-lived 2006 animated TV series. The group has actually been around since 1958 (that's a good three years before Marvel debuted the "Fantastic Four") and were originally part of the supporting cast in Superboy's comic book of the time, "Adventure Comics." The "Legion" were introduced as three super-powered teenagers from the 30th Century who formed a superhero club after being inspired by the legend of the Boy of Steel. Eventually, Superboy became a member of their team and would travel to the future to help them fight the forces of evil. »

We Tried Krispy Kreme's New Ghostbuster Themed Doughnuts and Our Lives Will Never Be the Same

16 September 2014 11:48 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Sometimes working in the entertainment industry means long hours trying to break celeb news or standing on a red carpet smashed between other reporters for hours and hours on end in the hopes that Jennifer Lawrence might show up. It can be grueling, and this job isn't for everyone. But sometimes Krispy Kreme lets you try the new Ghostbuster-themed doughnuts before anyone else and you realize that this is the best job on Planet Earth! Today, two actual Ghostbusters (we refuse to believe they were just actors in costume) delivered the marshmallow-filled Krispy Kreme doughnuts that are being rolled out to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the film.

A Dangerous Game Review

15 September 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The first thought that pops into the mind watching filmmaker Anthony Baxter’s follow-on film to You’ve Been Trumped (2011), A Dangerous Game is, can there really be that many people needing to play golf on Planet Earth? The rest is a powerful expose of the usual greed, arrogance and miscommunication that such documentaries are so apt at stoking. This second film is no exception, with the filmmakers getting right under the international skin while tussling Trump’s quiff once more. It’s as thrilling at getting the wealthy’s back up as it is educational and genuinely concerning.

In A Dangerous Game – doubling up as a nickname for ‘golf’ here, Baxter and team (writer Richard Phinney) go up against other corporate ‘villains’, picking up where the previous film/investigation left off, including revisiting at the Menie Estate in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. They also delve into the effects a proposed luxury »

Academy's Special 2014 Honorees: Veterans Belafonte, Carrière, Miyazaki and - Finally - O'Hara

29 August 2014 4:02 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Honorary Oscars 2014: Hayao Miyazaki, Jean-Claude Carrière, and Maureen O’Hara; Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award goes to Harry Belafonte One good thing about the creation of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Governors Awards — an expedient way to remove the time-consuming presentation of the (nearly) annual Honorary Oscar from the TV ratings-obsessed, increasingly youth-oriented Oscar show — is that each year up to four individuals can be named Honorary Oscar recipients, thus giving a better chance for the Academy to honor film industry veterans while they’re still on Planet Earth. (See at the bottom of this post a partial list of those who have gone to the Great Beyond, without having ever received a single Oscar statuette.) In 2014, the Academy’s Board of Governors has selected a formidable trio of honorees: Japanese artist and filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki, 73; French screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière, 82; and Irish-born Hollywood actress Maureen O’Hara, »

Bart & Fleming: Fest Fight Pits Telluride V Toronto; TV News Overkill In Ferguson?

24 August 2014 10:59 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Peter Bart and Mike Fleming Jr. worked together for two decades at Daily Variety. In this occasional column, two old friends get together and grind their axes on the movie business.

Bart: Have you noticed, Mike, that the gamesmanship of pre-festival season is often more entertaining than the fest movies themselves? Toronto has slammed the door on distributors who were sneaking their films into Telluride, then billing Toronto screenings as World Premieres.

Fleming: Labor Day Weekend for me is about getting kids back to school and squeezing the last moments of a summer that has flown by. I have never been to Telluride because the last thing I want to do is spend that holiday weekend in a succession of dark rooms in Colorado. Toronto is my favorite festival. It’s a wonderful platform for distributors to acquire films after seeing how they play to an audience, and to launch »

'Guardians of the Galaxy': Chris Pratt, Vin Diesel Salute Their Own Heroes at NYC Screening

30 July 2014 10:16 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Chris Pratt might play an intergalactic superhero on big screen, but while at SoHo's Crosby Street Hotel on Monday, the Guardians of the Galaxy star was quick to acknowledge who the real heroes are on Planet Earth. "The men and women in the armed forces, special forces, military people," Pratt told The Hollywood Reporter at a special New York City screening of Guardians, presented by The Cinema Society with Men's Fitness and Fiji Water. "They sacrifice themselves on a daily basis for our freedom and to keep us safe, and that's pretty damn heroic." Photos 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Screening:

The End of Comic-Con: How the once mighty event lost its relevance

30 July 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on Comic-Con and how the once mighty event lost is relevance…

Rome was once the center of the Universe. A place of innovation, inspiration, and cultural relevance which the world had never seen. The capital of an empire that influenced every society it conquered. Now it’s a city in Italy where tourists go on holiday to take pictures in a fountain.

Comic-Con has lost it’s luster. It’s no longer ‘hip’ or ‘relevant’. It used to be cool, like thin Jailhouse Rock Elvis. Now it’s a bloated, bedazzles jumpsuit wearing shell of its former self destined to die on a toilet. Once it was a comic book convention where geeks and nerds could gather as an annual celebration to geek culture, but that’s before ‘the man’ got it’s greasy hands on it. San Diego Comic-Con has been co-opted by Hollywood Studios and been »

Some dudes sent Walter White into space, just 'cause

17 July 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

What do you get when you give the guys at this second-screen app a Walter White bobblehead, a powerful balloon, and an eensy-weensy camera? Why, this video, which is both totally ridiculous and surprisingly moving. (Thank mood-setting music by The National Parks and Megafaun, which make “Walter White in Space” sort of like Robot Chicken crossed with Planet Earth.)

You want to watch this thing? You’re goddamn right.

Breaking Bad returns… never, because the universe is a cruel and unforgiving place. But have you heard about Better Call Saul? »

Transformers: Age Of Extinction Is The Highest-Grossing Movie Of The Year

14 July 2014 6:49 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

They talked shit, but people went. The reviews were harsh, but people went. Fans said it was the worst so far, but people went. And now Transformers: Age Of Extinction has taken only three weeks to become the highest-grossing film of 2014. I hope you're happy, Planet Earth! Transformers: Age Of Extinction has grossed a downright-unfair $752 million in only three weeks of release, despite not being available in every territory. What this means is that while the film is slowing down in general release, it's soon to get another big bump and most likely surpass a billion dollars. The movie sent a hat tip in X-Men: Days Of Future Past's direction this weekend, as previously the mutant romp was the year's biggest film at $731 million worldwide. Do I smell crossover? No? Oh, well, I'll keep that to myself. Transformers: Age Of Extinction collected these grosses in the wake of the »

Snowpiercer movie review: hunger train

10 July 2014 6:53 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Hauntingly grim, full of appalling ironies and awful truths. This is most definitely not the feel-good movie of the summer. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m a big Sf geek

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

There’s a reason why Snowpiercer — which could have, theoretically, easily been a centerpiece summer film for a major Hollywood studio — is getting handled with the timid kid gloves of an arthouse release by the industry, quietly dribbling into a few cinemas here and there instead of getting a big opening-weekend push out onto three thousand screens. It’s a reason that has a lot to do with what the film has to say about human nature, hope, despotism, and a revolutionary spirit that might want to counter that despotism. What Snowpiercer is about offers too harsh »

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.

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, »
