Doctor Who Series 8

Before the end of “Into the Dalek”, the Doctor asks Clara if he’s a good man. The second episode of the season seems well on its way to setting the stakes for Peter Capaldi’s new Doctor as dealing with existential questions as well as whatever the big bad of the season may be up to.

OP/ED: WB’s “No Jokes” Mandate Doesn’t Exist

I generally like Drew McWeeny at Hitfix, but his report that Warner Bros. has a “no jokes” mandate for its DC superhero movies doesn’t pass the common sense or smell test.

But as responsible reporting, you either jumbled it in translation or you’ll find your picture next to the definition of gullible in the dictionary.

BIRDMAN Soars at Venice Film Festival

We’ve hit the spot on film calendar where the Summer season ends and the page flips to the Fall festival season. The prestigious Venice Film Festival opened yesterday, with its biggest legacy perhaps being that it introduced the western world to Akira Kurosawa when it awarded Rashomon the Golden Lion in 1950, and the opening film was Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s BIRDMAN. The film was greeted with a thunderous standing ovation.

Lois Lane and Superman Accept The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Many celebrities have accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge over the last few weeks, but Amy Adams and Henry Cavill took it to a figuratively (and literally for Henry) cooler level. The pair faced the ice buckets in costume on the set of BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE. Appropriately, Henry Cavill’s challenge was super-sized. Continue reading
