"You know what, I actually feel like it's good," Britton tells Vanity Fair. "I think that the decision needed to be made, and there's been so much going back and forth about it now for so long. And I feel like the only way that was ever going to work is if it just fell into place beautifully, and if everybody was on board, because we couldn't do anything to risk what 'Friday Night Lights' has already been."
She's absolutely right, of course. It's time for fans to cherish the all-too-rare perfectly planned ending to the series and not greedily hope for more. And "Fnl" isn't the only series where fans would be better served by just letting go. »
At 31, Alice Eve is at a new, exciting stage in her career. The London-born, California-raised actress has for the past decade been making a name for herself in Hollywood by playing eye candy in films like "She's Out of My League," "Men in Black 3," "Sex and the City 2," and most recently "Stark Trek Into Darkness," where she caused fanboys to go weak in the knees by stripping down to her undies. In Neil La Bute's micro-budget shocker "Some Velvet Morning" (out this Friday in select theaters and currently available on VOD), Eve proves she's so much more than that. In the almost unbearably tense drama, Eve plays a beautiful former mistress to Fred (Stanley Tucci), who finds herself in a precarious spot when Fred shows up unannounced at her door demanding they talk. The chess game that unfolds over the next hour and a half is provocative and mega disturbing, »

The HBO television series spawned an initial feature film in 2008, followed by Sex and the City 2 in 2010.
Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon told Digital Spy earlier this year that another film is entirely down to writer-director Michael Patrick King, but Davis has appeared more optimistic in a new interview.
"I don't think [a third film] is a pipe dream, there is discussion," Davis told Haute Living.
"People talk about it amongst the people who are the players, but I don't know if it will come together. It would be very exciting if it did."
She added: "I'm going to have a little talk with Cynthia the next time I see her!"
Dubai set up its own film commission in May 2012, but it had already been luring foreign shoots, including “Syriana,” “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol” and “The Bourne Legacy,” which helped spread the word about what the Persian Gulf state can deliver.
The Dubai Film Commission has now become a one-stop permit shop with a system of soft incentives tailored to each shoot rather than the fixed 30% production rebate launched in September by Abu Dhabi.
Here’s how Dubai’s perks worked for big Bollywood laffer “Happy New Year,” which recently wrapped there, marking the first Hindi feature shot almost entirely in the Emirates. Pic was produced by Red Chillies Entertainment.
“We customized their hotel requirement, their airline requirement, their logistics in Dubai, the equipment that they wanted, and took care of their visas — we saved them a lot of hassle and cash,” says commission topper Jamal Al Sharif.
The production, for example, »

As Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom's troubled marriage continues to crumble around them, the struggling basketball has demanded $10 million from his reality star wife to end their union and buy his silence on the alleged existence of a sex tape.
A source tells The National Enquirer (so, take that with a grain of salt), "Lamar is also prepared to destroy Khloe's reputation by discussing their sex tape, and how she targeted him and tore his family apart." He allegedly won't sign any confidentiality agreement until he receives the money and the return of her $875,000 engagement ring. To that, we say: Khloe, pay up. There's nothing we want to see less than this sex tape.
In fact, here are 8 things we'd rather watch than that mess:
1. A live stream of a spider spinning a web
It would somehow manage to be both boring and creepy, but certainly less boring »
And how could it not be? NBC's Monday crime drama is one of the season's new hits, with strong ratings (including those from post-broadcast DVR viewings, where the show has set a couple of records) and positive reviews ... and a breakout star in Boone as novice FBI profiler Elizabeth Keen, who's drawing interest and information from enigmatic ex-fugitive Raymond "Red" Reddington (James Spader).
"I was so elated," Boone tells Zap2it of learning she'd be teamed with Spader, since she was cast for "The Blacklist" first. "He often believes in me more than I believe in myself. I'm expected to carry the show with him, and at first, that was really a daunting task.
"James helped me to know that I could put that energy into the work that we do together. And in doing so, he established a »

Harvey Weinstein enlisted Dame Judi Dench to revive her role as M in Bond this week in a spoof video that convinced the Motion Picture Association of America to downgrade Philomena's R rating to the less restrictive PG-13. The MPAA turned a blind eye to one "fuck", as two would normally make Stephen Frears's film unfit for teen viewing. Film ratings, as can be seen from the following, are often strange and unaccountable creatures...
1) The King's Speech (2010)
Harvey Weinstein is no stranger to lobbying film boards for classification downgrades. He and director Tom Hooper did much the same thing in relation to The King's Speech when the British Board of Film Classification certified it a »

Two years after he elegantly deconstructed the declining standards of modern moviegoing in The Good, the Bad and the Multiplex, Mark Kermode turns his gaze inward on his own profession in his third book Hatchet Job.
Digital Spy sat down with Kermode last week to discuss the shifting sands of film criticism in the digital age, how on-demand culture is making movie fans lazy, and his controversial love for sparkly vampires.
> Mark Kermode: 10 of the 'Hatchet Job' critic's greatest review rants
You've been working as a film critic for more than 20 years - what was it that motivated you to write about the profession now?
"It really came out of my last book, The Good, the Bad and the Multiplex, which was about the state of cinema and the fact that with the change from celluloid to digital, there had come a point when everyone decided, 'Let's just fire all the projectionists, »
Mark Kermode's latest book Hatchet Job: Love Movies, Hate Critics brilliantly puts the shifting sands of contemporary film criticism under the microscope.
In an age when emerging digital platforms mean anybody can voice their opinion on film (and be heard), and newspapers scale back the number of critics in full-time employment, Kermode has adeptly moved with the times, utilising radio, TV, podcast, video blog and print (he recently stepped into the Observer shoes of the esteemed Philip French) to cement himself as Britain's foremost movie critic.
His third book Hatchet Job is a passionate look at his profession past and present, the emerging friction between paying public and critic and the "first but wrong" online culture that favours speed of reaction over quality of argument.
In the opening chapter, Kermode acknowledges that a critical pan, or "hatchet job", will often provoke a bigger reaction from his listenership. With that in mind, »
In this extract from his forthcoming book, the Observer's new film critic, Mark Kermode, examines how the internet has changed the role of the professional reviewer. When everyone has an opinion, what value does the critic retain?
"Forrest Gump on a tractor." Those five words are probably my favourite film review ever. More importantly, they constitute the most damaging hatchet job I ever encountered, managing to do something I had often argued was impossible – to kill a movie stone dead. I didn't read them in a newspaper or on a blog, I didn't hear them on the radio or television; rather, they were whispered in my ear by a trusted friend and colleague, David Cox, as the house lights went down on a screening of David Lynch's The Straight Story.
I'd been really looking forward to that movie. I've been a huge Lynch fan ever since being blindsided by »

"Blimey, Charlie."Flappy handed BBC film critic Mark Kermode has revealed his worst films of 2013 thus far on his Kermode Uncut blog. You can watch him announce them in the video below, emphasising each one with his trademark flapping hands... or you can just read the semi-transcription below...
5. A Good Day to Die Hard - "Bruce, just stop."
4. G.I. Joe: Retaliation- "You've never seen so many people in the same screening hoping the projector doesn't work."
3. Texas Chainsaw 3D - "Leave my childhood memories alone!"
2. Run for Your Wife - "On its opening weekend the film took around £700."
1. Movie 43 - "An extraordinary star-studded venture that raises the question: why, oh why, oh why?"

★☆☆☆☆ Numerous derelict cinemas litter the opening of Paul Schrader's now-infamous The Canyons (2013), screening out of competition at this year's Venice Film Festival; and more may follow this portent omen of things to come. Make no mistake - Schrader's latest isn't Basic Instinct 2 bad or even quote-a-long bad, as in the case of cult sensation The Room. Instead, it's just utterly incompetent in every possible way imaginable. Nolan Gerard Funk stars as Ryan, a young actor looking to make it big in Hollywood, who has just landed a role in a low-budget horror movie through his girlfriend, Gina (Amanda Brooks).
The film is being financed by Christian (porn-star James Deen), his girlfriend's rich boss. The Canyons begins with an excruciatingly awkward dinner, with Christian in a boastful mood and his girlfriend Tara (Lindsay Lohan) texting beside him. It turns out that Tara and Christian were once swingers. At this stage, »

This bit is not part of the word count. Instead, it seems important to set the scene.
On Saturday 3rd August 2013, I sent out a Tweet from the Den Of Geek account, which looked something like this:

The Wordcount Starts Here
If you were reading Den Of Geek back in 2010, you may recall we ran a series of blockbuster movie preview feature articles. Because we were having a light-hearted moment, we ran one for Sex And The City 2. If you clicked on that article »
"Sex and The City" star Kim Cattrall has given actress Lindsey Gort her blessing and offered some advice on how to play Samantha Jones, a role the young actress is taking on in The CW's "The Carrie Diaries" Season 2.

And Lindsey was honored by the Tweet from the "Satc" legend.

Art Malik is renowned for his roles in a succession of films and TV dramas in the '80s centred on the experience of the British Raj.
His evocative portrait of the young Hari Kumar in the ITV production of The Jewel in the Crown led to David Lean casting him in his sweeping epic A Passage to India. Malik was later cast in Mm Kaye's The Far Pavilions.
The Pakistani born British actor has achieved the rare feat of making his presence felt in the realm of international cinema with prominent roles in films such as The Living Daylights, True Lies with Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sex and the City 2 and City of Joy.
The versatile star appeared on stage in the West End in the Tom Stoppard play Indian Ink with Felicity Kendal and there was a stint in BBC hospital drama Holby City, in which he played Dr Zubin Khan. »
On Friday (June 28), the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed the 276 artists and executives they've invited to join the esteemed organization for 2013.
"These individuals are among the best filmmakers working in the industry today," Academy President Hawk Koch said in a statement. With visionary directors Behn Zeitlin ("Beasts of the Southern Wild") and Steve McQueen ("Shame) and legendary actress Emmanuelle Riva ("Amour") invited, he's on to something.
So what in all that is holy is Jennifer Lopez doing on the list?
Lest we offend any "Selena" fans, we'll admit that Lopez turned in some fine work in the 1997 biopic, as well as 1998's "Out of Sight." But, come on. The woman who starred in "Monster-in-Law" and "Anaconda" is not one of the best filmmakers working today.
The Academy only began revealing its invitee list in 2004, and in the time since, it's made a few other head-scratching decisions. (After all, »

Today is the 15th anniversary of the premiere of Sex and the City, which had many lesbian connections, characters and scenes throughout its six-year run on HBO. Out designer Patricia Field famously handled the wardrobe for the inspired fashion on the show and actress Cynthia Nixon (Miranda Hobbes) came out as being in a lesbian relationship in 2004.
So we're counting down the most lesbian moments to be a part of the Satc franchise, which has also included two feature-length films.
1. Miranda gets set up with a softball player (Season 1, Episode 3)
Miranda's law firm thinks she's into women, so they set her up with Syd (Joanna Adler), who really does bat for our team. Even though she's not gay, Miranda desperately wants to be invited to the couples' dinner parties her boss throws, so she brings Syd as her date. Unfortunately, »
After flying high over Memorial Day, the box office came crashing down this weekend. All of the major holdovers fell over 50 percent, while After Earth opened on track with recent sci-fi bombs like John Carter and Battleship. The only bright spot was Now You See Me, which opened way above expectations. Similar to the other recent movies in its franchise, Fast & Furious 6 took its foot off the gas pedal in its second weekend. The movie plummeted 64 percent to $35.2 million; while that was enough for first place, it still indicates that the movie won't be able to take the franchise to the next level box office-wise. To date, Fast 6 has earned a very strong $171 million. In second place, magician caper Now You See Me opened to a very good $29.3 million. That's the biggest non-Twilight debut ever for Summit Entertainment, which was acquired by Lionsgate in early 2012. The opening is particularly »
