Book 3 continued this week with the second half of the Zaofu arc, and a filler episode set in the Northern Air Temple. While these two episodes didn’t dazzle me as much as the previous five, they were still full of action, comedy, character development and touching moments. My recap and thoughts are after the jump!

The Legend of Korra – Episodes 3.04 & 3.05

3.05_title

The bizarre Book 3 schedule continues, with Nick choosing to air 2 episodes per week for the rest of the season’s run. Even stranger is their decision to pair even-odd episodes, with the series creators saying episode 4 was actually meant to be paired with 3 (and 5 with 6). That being said, these episodes were so good that I’m not going to complain.

And just what made these episodes so good? Hit the jump for my summary and thoughts!

Horns Teaser Trailer + Poster: Daniel Radcliffe Is A Bad Guy Maybe

Daniel Radcliffe / Horns

I really like Daniel Radcliffe because he refuses to be pigeonholed as Harry Potter for the rest of this life and keeps taking new roles in new genres, testing his limits and skill as an actor. Put succinctly: I don’t think we’re going to be rid of him any time soon. Horns is one of his new different weird projects in which he plays a guy who grows a pair of horns and is suspected of committing a grisly murder. Let’s watch!

Big Hero 6

Disney Animation Studios has had a bit of a resurgence lately and this fall they’re pretty much going to cement the idea that they are the Disney of animation again with this collaboration with Marvel because both of those names plus a movie that looks like it might be great are going to be mean dolla dolla bills yo.

Or whatever the kids these days are saying. Let’s watch!

Review: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is the best movie of the summer so far. That’s not as high of praise as it should be, this summer has been rife with disappointment, but it’s high praise none the less. It’s not a perfect movie but whatever missteps it has are all ultimately forgivable given how spot on the rest of the movie is.

Unbroken Trailer: Angelina Jolie Directs Jack O’Connell Right To The Oscars

Jack O'Connell / Unbroken

Just so we’re clear: this is based on the true story of Louis Zamperini who started out as a scrappy kid who turned into an Olympic champion athlete, then joined the war effort and was lost at sea, and then was a prisoner in a Japanese POW camp. For real. He also lived to be 97 and only died this past month. Oscars here we come, right?

Furious 7 Finishes Filming, Read A Heartfelt Letter To The Fans

Vin Diesel / Furious 7

I love the Fast and Furious franchise. I love it because it’s a series of movies that are really just a series of ludicrous car chases (some of which feature Ludacris!) which aspire to be more than the are with an overreaching theme of family, and comic book like continuity.

When Paul Walker died they lost a member of their family and, kinda sorta, so did we. Today it was announced that the 7th film in the franchise has completed filming, and they did so with a heartfelt letter to the fans. Hit the jump to read it.

Before The Dawn: Three Short Films Chronicle The End Of The World Before Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is out this weekend and that story picks up a full ten years after James Franco accidentally started the end of the world by trying to cure Alzheimer’s. Reportedly there isn’t much more than a pre-credits “the world ended” rundown in the movie but just in case you wanted some more info 20th Century Fox have teamed with Vice and Motherboard to bring you three short films set in the first, fifth, and tenth years of that decade.

These aren’t required viewing for the film but they are required viewing if you like film, I think.
