Only 3 episodes have aired of the new show The Cape, but I am already hooked. If you've missed it, don't despair, you can watch full episodes online for free. Wrongly accused and presumed dead, Vince Farraday finds refuge within a circus of thieves who teach him an odd assortment of skills. He earns The Cape - a hooded cloak with stunning properties.
Very much rooted in the superhero genre, it has the flair of the early seasons of Heroes, the action of the BBC show Robin Hood and is blended with the humor of Firefly.

It pays to play the king (or queen, as the case may be.) Whether it's comedy or drama, on television or the big screen, we love a good portrayal of the British royal family. And a small number of talented actors and actresses have been rewarded for just that--delivering award-winning performances as British monarchs.
I've been a Colin Firth fan since I first saw him in Shakespeare in Love as the snobby and sniveling Lord Wessex, and I've been an Anglophile for as long as I can remember, so there was no way I was going to miss him play the stammering King George VI in The King's Speech. I saw it this past weekend, and it actually rendered me speechless--a rare moment. Firth is magnificent in this clever film, which is about much more than George's speaking difficulties.
JUST LIKE THE SNOW OUTSIDE THIS MOVIE HAS PLENTY OF IT AS WELL.
So I just recently watched this movie FROZEN just because my hold list has gone down and I needed something to watch. I didn't even really think I would like it because I would never put myself in that type of situation. It starts off just normal but not boring where you would want to take it out of your DVD player. It does get pretty intense. I literally had my hands over my mouth because I got so into the movie! I really felt nervous as I watched the horror the people went through as the movie progressed.
January 11 marks the 76th anniversary of Amelia Earhart's historic solo Pacific flight. The documentary Where's Amelia Earhart? explores her disappearance years later, as does an episode of Unsolved Mysteries. Can you name the 3 actresses who have recently portrayed Ms. Earhart on the silver screen?
So I started to watch this movie with the mind-set this would be yet another romantic comedy. But it turned out to go a little serious at times because anyone could actually be put into that type of situation and it's not very funny. I must say Justin Long has come a long way in his acting career. I couldn't really buy into his character in JEEPERS CREEPERS after I saw DODGEBALL.
I've always wanted to visit Italy, but never more than after watching Luca Guadagnino's "I Am Love." Everything from the beautiful scenery to the food to the clothing was striking. I felt like I was peeking into an aspect of the country I would probably never experience: the posh lifestyle of a family steeped in old money and culture.
At the core of this film is the story of the Recchi family, a wealthy bunch whose successful textile business is about to be handed down from the patriarch to both his son and grandson. As he puts it, "It will take two men to replace me." Oh Grandpa, your self-importance will do you no good after you pass! Because against his dying wishes the company is sold to someone outside of the family and the tight knit group begins to fray. It is hard not to see this unraveling as punishment for a life of entitlement, but I don't think it is Guadagnino's intent to comment on this at all.
In addition to its 2012 FAQ page trying to scientifically explain some of the science around predictions that the world will end in 2012, NASA has also released a list of what it deems plausible vs. implausible science fiction movies.
Female friendship has been celebrated in movies widely even before Beaches was a blockbuster, but it isn't until recently that male friendships also received the same cinematic treatment. Bromances celebrate the brotherly love and friendship between two men and are often hysterical!
Many of the films on this list are written, directed, and/or produced by Judd Apatow. I think it is safe to assume that he is quite the bromantic.
