How a Hollywood Writers Strike Could Affect Everything You Watch for Years to Come

1 hour ago

The world of entertainment is fast approaching a critical juncture: one that, if crossed, will have massive repercussions that will be felt for years to come.  It will cause shows to be cancelled, movies to be delayed or ruined, even resurrect the ghosts of rejected screenplays to get rushed into production.  I am, of course, referring to the looming Hollywood Writers Strike that could go into effect as soon as next week. It’s been a decade since the last writers strike, and unless the Writers Guild and studios can come to an understanding before the current contract between them expires,

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Offers a Somewhat Fantastic Blu-Ray Release

1 hour ago

When Warner Bros and J.K. Rowling announced that the Harry Potter franchise would returning to the big screen in a brand new form, fans were left scratching their heads at the fact that Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, a film based off a Hogwarts classroom textbook is actually going to be a reality. Creating spin-offs based on popular franchises certainly aren’t a foreign idea, such as this year’s Rogue One, but Fantastic Beasts seemed like a film that was a bit of a stretch. While it took a few years until that confusion would finally pay off, J.K.

Vince McMahon Biopic Called ‘Pandemonium’ is Going to Happen

2 hours ago

Can you even fathom just how big Andre the Giant is from this picture?  It’s not like Vince McMahon is a small dude.  In fact, quite the contrary.  McMahon is as jacked as they come.  Speaking of the WWE titan, Vince McMahon is going to be immortalized in Hollywood with a feature film called Pandemonium.  According to Deadline: The film is landing at Sony Pictures’ TriStar, with Andrew Lazar producing with WWE Studios president Michael Luisi and Adam Goldworm. Nobody’s talking, but the film covers McMahon’s ascension in the wrestling business, and having WWE Studios involved indicates the project has the

Chicago Fire Review: Carry Their Legacy

3 hours ago

One of the hardest things a human being can do is to gather the strength to be there for another person when they are at their lowest strength. Chicago Fire does that everytime they walk into a building to rescue someone. When it’s someone they love it’s a whole other matter. You can tell the strength of a person’s character by how they choose to stick by the people they love when they are in pain. Casey and Severide have to gather their strength to support the people they love in their darkest hours. Connie comes back from break, making

Best Uses of Songs in Movies: “Burn” by The Cure in the Movie “The Crow”

3 hours ago

If I’m being honest with myself The Crow is a movie that’s 100% ripe for a remake.  On a personal level I’d like to leave it as is and have it forever be an untouchable part of Brandon Lee’s legacy.  But from a business standpoint I think it’s the kind of movie that could do extremely well today.   Speaking of The Crow, I was at the gym the other day when the song “Burn” by The Cure came on.  It’s one of my favorite songs of all-time and I couldn’t be happier that it found its way into the soundtrack

Could The Show Girls Pull off a Feature Film?

4 hours ago

Recently Girls star Jemima Kirke was asked about the finale of Girls and even though many fans were disappointed Kirke said she “loved it.”  But a more important question she was asked is if she would want to do some kind of reunion be it a movie or more television.  Jemima said that she’d “love to” and would be very interested to see where the Girls would be 10 years from now.  But here’s the question:  Could Girls pull off a movie? The easy answer to this one is “of course” and you can probably bet that Lena Dunham’s already

Redone Clips from William Shatner’s Little Known Interview Show “Raw Nerve”

5 hours ago

I had no clue that William Shatner had an interview show called Raw Nerve. Did you know that William Shatner had an interview show called Raw Nerve?  Turns out this 30 minute interview format series lasted a full three seasons on The Biography Channel.   After 32 episodes the show was canceled some time in 2011.  It featured Shatner interviewing fellow Hollywood royalty the likes of Regis Philbin, Jenna Jameson, and a whole bunch of former Star Trek co-stars. Recently comedian Joe Mande unearthed some edits he made to the program with comedy writer Noah Garfinkel, and they make it seem

Sadly Stephen A. Smith Probably Won’t Be One of the 40 On-Air Espn Cuts

6 hours ago

Things haven’t been too great for the “Worldwide Leader” in sports. Espn is struggling due to the continuous decrease in cable subscriptions on a month to month basis. Cord cutting is becoming more common as audiences are finding cheaper ways to consume their media. As it turns out Espn is resorting to cutting a large amount of on-air talent within the next month. According to Yahoo: Espn will part ways with more than 40 people, all of them “talent,” a label that Espn applies to radio hosts and writers (almost all of whom regularly do video or audio), not just

Agents of Shield Review: “All the Madame’s Men” Do Battle

7 hours ago

As fun, fresh, and interesting as Agents of Shield has been in the framework, it was just as interesting to venture outside of it a little bit. For the first time in several weeks, we saw a few tidbits outside of the framework, as things really heated up inside. Shield has long been an exciting show, but the framework story has bumped it up to the next level. This week on Agents of Shield: May turns her back on Hydra in the framework, and helps Daisy and the other agents to foil Aida’s plot. Coulson, May, and Mack begin to remember their old selves, at least

Drone Footage Shows Alarmingly Large Number of Sharks Just Inches Off The Beach

7 hours ago

The photo above might just look like some sort of dirty sand cloud in the ocean but upon closer inspection you’ll see that it’s much more alarming than a little dust rising in the water.   The cloud that you see are in fact mullet.  And the areas that show the cloud clearing up are actually nurse sharks eating the mullet.  Dramatic drone footage from high above Fingal Bay in Port Stephens, Australia, has captured the full extent of a shark hunt off the popular strip. During this particular feeding frenzy, authorities were forced to close the beach to swimming, but

iZombie Season 3 Episode 4 Review: “Wag the Tongue Slowly”

7 hours ago

After last week’s underwhelming installment, iZombie rebounds nicely with tonight’s stellar episode, an hour that blends and balances all of the main characters’ stories together in a way that “Eat, Pray, Liv” failed to do. Like last Tuesday’s episode, there’s a lot going in “Wag the Tongue Slowly,” from Liv and Clive pursuing new suspects for the murders of Wally and his family to Major doing his best to rescue Natalie to Peyton and Blaine continuing to grow closer. However, unlike “Eat, Pray, Liv,” which sidelined characters like Liv and Clive in order to give Ravi, Peyton, and Blaine more screen time,

Rian Johnson Kept a Camera Handy on Set of Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Here are Some Shots

8 hours ago

The biggest thing that came from the Star Wars Celebration that took place in Orlando this year was the release of the Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer.   There was also the release of the official poster as well as amazing sound bytes from the cast and crew.   Another gem that’s recently been released from the events at the Star Wars Celebration are some photos that writer/director Rian Johnson took on set. Rian Johnson revealed that he kept a camera on his person at all times throughout the shoot, snapping photos whenever he saw a striking image. And since this

Wild Cherry’s “Play that Funky Music White Boy” and Sly and the Family Stone’s “Thank You”

9 hours ago

Maybe it’s because I never even heard Sly and the Family Stone’s “Thank you” before but come on Wild Cherry!  “Play that Funky Music White Boy” is a total rip off.  Sly’s song came out in 1969 and Wild Cherry’s came out in 1976.   I cannot find one lawsuit, not one complaint, nothing.  Am I completely missing something here?  Have I not researched it enough?  How could Sly and the Family Stone not be pissed off at this?  Trust me when I say music is ripped all the time and there are fine lines.  But this is no fine line

Norman Reedus Snaps Behind-The-Scenes Photo With Melissa McBride

9 hours ago

One of the shows that would most largely be affected by the looming writer’s strike is The Walking Dead.  However, that didn’t stop Norman Reedus from taking a pseudo selfie of Melissa McBride.  It would appear that the cast and crew have taken over Georgia to potentially beginning shooting the “All out War” season 8 of the AMC hit show.   Reedus shared a photo of himself with Melissa McBride on set of the AMC series. The photo, embedded below, is likely from production of the Season 7 finale, seeing as Gale Anne Hurd’s Twitter indicates that the group was only just getting

Rick and Morty Creator Has Been Trolling Movie Studios for a Very Long Time

10 hours ago

Did you know that Rick and Morty was actually intended to be a more direct spoof of the movie Back to the Future with the title “Doc and Mharti?” It’s true.   Series creator Justin Roiland said: I actually made this as a way to poke fun at the idea of getting cease and desist letters. At the time (October 2006) I had nothing to lose and my original intention was to call this “back to the future: the new official universal studios cartoon featuring the new Doc Brown and Marty McFly” and then I’d just sit back and wait for

Eight Classic Gaming Consoles Redesigned as Cars

10 hours ago

Objects being “reimagined” seems to be all the rage at the moment, and I personally am a fan. Mostly artists are using classic objects or designs that send you on a nostalgia trip – who doesn’t love a wander down memory lane? We all remember our first games console as a kid, right? Show me the right console, and be prepared to see me melt into a sentimental puddle. The worlds of computing and automobiles overlaps more and more with each new development, so to address the nostalgia of our inner child’s favourite games console, ‘NeoMam Studios’ have created eight

Things are heating up as we approach the end of Season 6 of Scandal. With only 5 more episodes to go, we are coming very close to finding out who will really be in control at the start of Season 7. ABC has just released the log line for episode 14 of Scandal. Entitled Head Games, the episode will air the week before the two hour season finale. So, without further ado, here is what the episode will be about: “While outgoing President Fitz considers his legacy, the Gladiators question what’s next for Opa, and Jake finally discovers the motivation behind

The Secret Part of Me Hoping The Writer’s Strike Goes Through

11 hours ago

The big news in Hollywood today is the impending writer’s strike.  There’s an increasing possibility that the WGA is going to strike when the deadline to cut deal with movie and TV networks expires.  At first it was thought the chance of a strike was around 50/50 but it’s more like 75/25 right now.  What does this mean?  It means that some of your favorite shows might go on hiatus pretty soon.  While many shows are already written through the end of the season, there are some shows like The Walking Dead that could be badly affected by the strike.

So People are Buying into Cooper’s Treasure Now?

12 hours ago

Can someone explain this obsession with treasure reality shows?  It still boggles my mind that The Curse of Oak Island had millions and I’m talking millions of viewers in its season 4 finale.   Season 4!  That means there were not one or two or three seasons of these guys failing to find buried sea treasure, but a fourth go around led to failure and a new ratings record for the show.  And guess what?  All indications are pointing to a season five!  Rick and Marty Lagina are literally laughing their way to the bank right now, as is The History

Brie Larson Explains Why She’s Doing Captain Marvel

12 hours ago

Brie Larson was recently featured in a pretty sultry photoshoot for Vanity Fair which she admitted she was reluctant to do.  With regards to her career, there’s another thing she was nearly reluctant to do as well: play the lead role in Captain Marvel.   Larson is a huge star right now and some think that moving to the money making machine that is Marvel might be a bit of a “sell out” move but while money must have been a factor in her decision making process, it wasn’t the only factor. “It took me a really long time,” Larson explained to Vanity
