10 August 2016 10:41 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Dark Horse – this year’s extraordinary new documentary about a pub barmaid from a poor Welsh mining town who takes on the “elite sport of kings” and breeds herself an improbable racehorse champion – crosses the DVD & Digital finish line August 23 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The Sony Pictures Classics release, a 2015 Sundance Film Festival winner directed by Louise Ormond (BAFTA nominated for Richard III: The King In The Car Park), won the Festival’s World Cinema Documentary Audience Award and was also premiered at the Toronto Film Festival. The film received an outstanding reception from audiences and critics alike, capturing a 96% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes and lauded as “heartwarming,” “irresistible,” “exhilarating,” “stirring,” “moving,” “delightful” and “inspiring.” Screendaily’s Allan Hunter concluded, “A heartwarming true story that has been expertly crafted into an irresistible, emotion-charged documentary.”

Pippa Middleton Climbs the Matterhorn to Honor Her Fiancé's Brother Who Died on Mount Everest

31 July 2016 1:10 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Pippa Middleton has conquered the Matterhorn. The younger sister of Princess Kate reached the summit of the Matterhorn in Switzerland with her brother, James, her partner scaling Mont Blanc in 2008. The climb was in-character for the adventure-seeker, but it also came with a greater purpose in mind. Pippa, who became engaged to financier James Matthews earlier this month, did the climb to raise money for the Michael Matthews Foundation in honor of her fiancé's brother who died while scaling Mount Everest in 1999. He was 22 and was the youngest Briton ever to have scaled the peak at the time. "It was »

The wait for season seven of Game of Thrones could be longer than expected. Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss revealed that production on the HBO fantasy drama is going to start later than expected. The duo, who made the remarks during a Ufc podcast, said production is waiting for gloomy weather to return in a bid to capture the weather that comes with the "Winter is here" moment revealed in the season six finale.   { "nid": 886845, "type": "blog", "title": "'Game of Thrones' Showrunners Discuss Endgame: "We're Approaching the Finish Line"", "path": "

Check Out The Trailer For The Bizarre First-Person Adventure Maize

18 May 2016 12:47 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The debut trailer for Finish Line Games’ absurdist first-person adventure Maize is now online, revealing a bizarre world and an even crazier premise.

Maize is said to be an absurdist comedy based around unusual government conspiracies and offering up no shortage of weirdness. The trailer doesn’t give an awful lot away as far as gameplay or plot is concerned, but the Monty Python-esque tone is perfectly captured as we are introduced to a stalk of the sentient corn that will apparently play a very large part in the narrative.

The developer’s official synopsis explains as much:

Maize is a first-person adventure game about what happens when two scientists misinterpret a memo from the U.S. Government and create sentient corn. And that last sentence is pretty much the least ridiculous thing about the game.

The story will take place on a desolate farm which players will explore to »

'The Amazing Race' Predictions: Who is Going to Win Season 28?

12 May 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | | See recent BuddyTV news »

The season finale of The Amazing Race is here! After a trip around the world, the teams are finally coming back to America and the final Finish Line is up for grabs. Only three teams are left and it might be one of the most surprising Final Three in The Amazing Race history. I don't think many, if any, The Amazing Race fans would pick all three of these teams to be the ones to get the closest to the million dollar prize, but that's what happened. Likely or not, one of these teams is going to win, so let's look at who is the most likely in our finale predictions.

Pippa Middleton Runs 7K Days After Brutal Cross-Country Ski Race

24 March 2016 6:25 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Run a 7K? That's no sweat for Pippa Middleton! Just days after competing in a grueling ski race, the younger sister of Princess Kate showed off her sporty side once again while participating in the "Hare and Tortoise Walk" to raise money for the Mary Hare School for Deaf Children in Berkshire, U.K., on Wednesday. The ambassador for the school wore an $80 light blue windbreaker from Salomon, black leggings and colorful neon sneakers while jogging around the Donnington Castle. She wore her hair in a casual, loose braid for the occasion. Throughout the race, Middleton was joined by a »

Cel Damage HD (Xbox One) Review

10 March 2016 12:00 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As one of the launch titles for the original Xbox console, Cel Damage promised sharp, cartoony visuals and addictive vehicular mayhem. At the end of the day, though, the game failed to really deliver, and received middling reviews as a result. It was also practically forgotten about until Toronto-based Finish Line Games decided to remaster its wreck-filled arenas with high definition visuals.

Cel Damage HD, as they call it, was originally released a couple of years ago as an exclusive for the PlayStation suite of consoles (and handheld). Said exclusivity was merely timed, though, as the game has now made its way to the Xbox One as a downloadable affair. As such, it’s essentially come home, and — in doing so — provides a look back at the history of the Xbox brand.

The idea behind Cel Damage HD is that what we’re playing is merely a televised sporting event, »

This may continue for. »
