Earth 2: World’s End #7
Published by DC Comics
The end of Earth 2 draws ever closer. The planet is under attack by the female furies of Apokolips, the Superman and Batman families search the fire pits for Huntress who has been taken by Desaad, Alan Scott has a mournful reunion with his newly raised boyfriend, Dr. Fate acts and speaks cryptically, and the World Army plans to take on Apokolips.
This week is unfortunately not as interesting as last time. It spends a lot of time focused on the Superman and Batman team fighting off monstrous clones of Clark Kent. However, the Furies arrive for the opening of this issue, meaning they still have a larger role to play. »

It seemed inevitable that Seth MacFarlane was going to star in a movie. After his success with Ted (which he wrote and directed and which made over half a billion worldwide), after hosting both Saturday Night Live and the Oscars, it seemed he wanted to be in front of the camera, no longer just writing and providing voice work for such television shows as Family Guy and American Dad. That shot was A Million Ways to Die in the West, which he also wrote, produced and directed, and it did not have the sort of success that would suggest he’ll get to star in another. The film barely made $40 million domestically, and was roundly panned. The film has its moments, and will probably get a better reputation when it’s viewed with the lowered expectations that come with home viewing, though it’s the definition of indulgent. Co-starring with Charlize Theron and Liam Neeson, »

Earth 2: World’s End #6
Published by DC Comics
Another week means another issue of World’s End. While there is once again a block paragraph that makes up the writers’ credits, this is the first time World’s End shows the potential promised with issue one.
The numerous plotlines are much more balanced this time around, giving each character the proper amount of attention without taking up too many panels, the one exception being Queen Marella. The four Furies are stopped, at least for now, when Doctor Fate defeats Famine but senses that Jimmy Olsen is about to achieve a great power and abandons Hawkgirl and Flash, Marella makes a deal with some sleeping Lovecraftian monsters to exact vengeance for Atlantis, »

Since its premiere at Sundance, Richard Linklater’s Boyhood has been garnering Oscar buzz and rave reviews. The film could score nominations for best picture, director, actor and more, but after submitting three songs to the Academy for consideration in the best original song category, the film could add another nomination. Two of the songs were written by Ethan Hawke, who could garner a best supporting actor nomination for his portrayal of the father. If Hawke receives a best original song nomination for one of his songs, he will join a short list of actors who have scored nominations for songs since 1994.
Both Annette O’Toole and her husband Michael McKean were nominated in 2004, for their song “A Kiss at the End of the Rainbow,” which appeared in 2003’s A Mighty Wind. Well known for her role on Smallville as Martha Kent, O’Toole didn »

The CW’s Arrow this Wednesday finally shed light on Felicity Smoak’s past, which (in several ways) was darker than we perhaps imagined. Also: Sara’s killer revealed?!
Following a fun montage of training sessions — Oliver vs. Roy, Thea vs. Malcolm, Laurel vs. Ted — we see how “normal people” spend their mornings, as embodied by Felicity, whose toothbrushing is interrupted by a visit from, first, boss man Ray Palmer, and then her mother, Donna, who’s flown in from out-of-town.
But just as Felicity and her mom begin catching up, a power outage darkens Starling City, courtesy of some entity known as Brother Eye. »
Having struck up an unusual and wholly hilarious partnership in 2010’s hit comedy, The Other Guys, it was only a matter of time before Paramount and partner company, Gary Sanchez Productions, sought out to reunite Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell for another cinematic romp. And it seems as though the wheels are in motion on the pair’s latest outing, Daddy’s Home, which will see Ferrell and Wahlberg compete for the affection of two children.
Horrible Bosses 2 helmer Sean Anders is on board to direct, with Entourage‘s Brian Burns penning the script. From what we understand, Daddy’s Home was initially due to enter production late last year, when Vince Vaughan was attached to the project alongside Ferrell, a situation that would have had Etan Cohen in the director’s chair. Alas, it seems as though Vaughan’s commitment to the second season of True Detective may »

Oliver Queen takes a trip to Corto Maltese in this week's Arrow, an episode layered with secrets...
This review contains spoilers.
3.3 Corto Maltese
Aside from the small teaser we were given, Thea and Malcolm’s whereabouts have been the big question mark hanging of season three of Arrow. How did the conversation in that limo end? Where did they go? And what might Malcolm have moulded his daughter into when we meet her again?
Those questions were answered in this episode, with information drip-fed to us via both present-day action and flashbacks, replacing accounts of Oliver’s Hong Kong adventures for one week. It’s largely as expected – Thea wanted to get away from what she perceived as all the liars in her life, and in her eyes the only person who had been honest with her was Malcolm. There’s also a sense that she wanted to be stronger, »
Seth MacFarlane knows what he's doing when it comes to making hit shows and films. That said, nobody's perfect. The Family Guy creator and Ted director has proven there is no such thing as bad publicity, as his projects thrive on humor designed to push the envelope and infuriate some viewers. And while MacFarlane has perfected this craft, there are certainly a few choices he's made over the years that now seem questionable. Here are the decisions that MacFarlane probably wants to do over.

Foo Fighters' HBO series Sonic Highways visited Washington D.C. Friday night, which marked a homecoming of sorts for Dave Grohl: The rocker was raised in the Virginia suburbs outside of D.C. – his mother still lives there – and he started out drumming for area acts like Mission Impossible, Dain Bramage and "his favorite band ever," Scream.
In addition to recording the Sonic Highways track "The Feast and the Famine," Grohl also provides an extensive look at a pair of homegrown genres that became the backbone of the D. »
In David Cronenberg’s world, sex hurts so good; it’s innately disgusting and primeval but at the same time beautiful and becoming. (Kind of like sex in the real world, when you think about it.) Bodies degenerate and mental states corrode under the influence of lust, and yet something new is engendered by the collision of bodies, bodily fluids, the ripping of flesh and the mangling of organs. Through the carrion of ugly comes the attractive flesh, the new flesh. Videodrome, as Jonathan Lethem once quipped, remains Cronenberg’s most penetrative film; he creates a world at once rooted in modernity circa 1983–a world afraid of the advent of television usurping our humanity, over-stimulated times ushering in the end times–and existing in a timeless, placeless vacuum. It’s vast and claustrophobic, prescient and paranoid, of the same lineage as early James Cameron »

Arrow Season 3, Episode 3: “Corto Maltese”
Directed by Stephen Surjik
Airs Wednesdays at 8pm Et on The CW
Remember when Arrow was just the story of a guy getting revenge on the people who fucked over his less-than-honorable father? Arrow‘s grown (and grown up) quite a bit since the first season of the show, a rapid expansion of settings, characters, and people who know that Oliver Queen is Arrow (seriously: remember how many people found out last season?). And every now and then, Arrow stumbles a bit under the weight of keeping so many people and plot lines up and running at any given time in Starling City – unfortunately, “Corto Maltese” is one of those hours, an entertaining episode held back by the sheer amount of material it’s trying to cram in (and in some cases, straight rush through) as it begins »

A quick review of tonight's "Arrow" coming up just as soon as I don't know how to vacation like a normal person... Sister show "The Flash" is the shiny new thing understandably getting all the attention, but "Arrow" has had a fine start to its third season. I didn't write about last week's episode, but it did a good job dealing with the emotional repercussions of Sara's murder, while "Corto Maltese" dealt nicely with the Malcolm/Thea relationship(*) and the way it in turn has altered Oliver and Thea's relationship. I don't much buy Diggle's rationale for Oliver not telling her the whole truth, but in general I have a much more anti-secrecy philosophy than the shared "Arrow"/"Flash" creative team, and Thea as secret ninja is a much better direction for her than Thea as underage club owner. (*) I particularly appreciated the tabling of the Hong Kong flashbacks in »
