Truth be told, last night’s episode, The Bear and the Maiden Fair paled in comparison with the rest of the season. Now, of course, the standards were set high after the last couple of episodes, so it was still good television. But I just could not help but feel bored throughout the episode, which did not have a clear focus and was even more fragmented than usual.
SPOILER ALERT: This article will assume you have watched/read Game of Thrones up to the last aired episode.
It’s official — Star Wars Episode VII will be filmed in Britain. This shouldn’t be a surprise seeing that all six previous Star Wars films have been partially filmed there, either in studios like Elstree Studios or in the many public parks. Check out the official announcement after the jump.
During the season finale of Once Upon a Time, ABC released the first promotional trailer for the upcoming fall series, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The series was officially picked up by ABC on May 10th and the show runner will be none other than The Avengers director, Joss Whedon. As expected, the show looks absolutely awesome.
Ever since I was a kid, I’ve wanted to go into space. To not feel gravity and to be free to float without weight or resistance, that is what we could call an out of this world experience. Literally. But after seeing the first trailer for Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity, I’ve began to give my dream of going into space a second thought. Check out this beautiful and terrifying trailer for Gravity.
Back when I first read The Great Gatsby in my 12th grade English class, I never thought, “Wow, this would look awesome in 3D!” or “You know what would make this story even better? Music by Jay-Z and Beyonce.” For those worried that Baz Luhrmann’s colorful interpretation of this classic novel looks too flashy or too modern, don’t worry. For the elaborate party scenes that make up a good portion of the plot, this flashiness works in its favor constructing a visually stunning piece summer moviegoers are sure to enjoy. Fans of the novel, however, may have some gripes with the soul of the story being overshadowed by the special effects.
Well ladies and gentlemen, we have come to the end of the Tarantino Blu-ray and have thus completed the retrospective. I’m going to write a short final analysis for you as well as what I thought about some of the special features offered on the Blu-ray set, a favorites tier, and briefly what I thought about Django Unchained.
Marvel’s President Of Production, Kevin Feige, has been a very busy man over the last few years. This is mostly due to the very high level of success brought from Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, and The Avengers. And if there’s one thing Kevin knows all too well, it’s to strike while the iron is hot. During a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, he talked about the possibility of more Iron Man films to come. Check out the rest of the article to see what Kevin had to say.
SPOILER ALERT: This post will assume you have read/watched Game of Thrones up to the latest episode.
As expected, “The Climb” showed us more of the North, but not that much more. The episode opened with Sam who fails to light a fire to keep the Craster daughter and her baby warm as they stop for the night on their way to the wall. Except for Sam singing and being told that he’s got too much wood (…), this scene served little purpose. On the “good” side of the wall, another purposeless fire-in-the-woods scene showed Bran settling a childish quarrel between Osha and sister-of-vision-kid. Vision-kid had a vision of Jon Snow on the “wrong” side of the wall, surrounded by the “wrong” people. This made Hodor wake up and say “Hodor.”
Literally and unquestionably the best possible casting addition Christopher Nolan has made to his upcoming sci-fi epic about time travel and wormholes, Interstellar, has happened (well, mostly). Recent A-lister and Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain is “in talks” to join Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway as the “third lead,” according to Deadline. And if that wasn’t enough Interstellar action to wet your appetite this week, literally hours later Deadline broke the scoop that five-time Nolan collaborator and “lucky charm” Michael Caine is confirmed to join the cast as well. More after the break.
For those scoffing right now, keep in mind that I disliked Iron Man 3 a lot more than most people. Trust me, the latest installment featuring “billionaire-philanthropist-playboy” Tony Stark was high on my anticipation list. After thinking about this film for a couple of days, it surfaced in my mind as the worst film out of the four Stark pictures (including The Avengers).
