Edge of Tomorrow has been one of my favourite films this year so far for a lot of reasons but one of them is how well the effects were all pulled off. Here’s a quick behind the scenes look at how a lot of the best ones were created practically on set.

New Doctor Who costume

Welcome back to Who’s On First Mondays… or rather, Who’s On Eventually because I was making ossobuco and was busy until now.  This week I’m sure we will find the Doctor in some sort of mischief and Clara doing something to try and help and/or lying to her boyfriend about the ambiguity of their relationship.  But that’s just a guess.  The ossobuco is in the oven so let’s see how right I am, shall we?

Alien

A normal boring two-day weekend after last week’s Thanksgiving food onslaught but at least I learnt from AF’s resident Canadians (read: everyone but me) that, unlike the US day, it isn’t rooted in thievery and disease. Which is nice. Yay Canada!

We’re spoilt this week – take a look at our choices.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has just announced that Neil Patrick Harris will host the 87th Academy Awards (the Oscars) on February 22, 2015.  Last year Ellen Degeneres hosted and had the most viewers in 14 years.  Here’s hoping NPH can keep the streak alive.

Warner Brothers’ 2020 Vision – Harry Potter & LEGO Trilogies and a Justice League Ten Pack

Warner Bros. had a lot to say at their Time Warner investors meeting today, and most of it was “YOU WANT MOVIES? I’LL SHOW YOU MOVIES!”  CEO Kevin Tsujihara gave us a timeline of what Warner Bros. will be working on over the next 6 years.  Buckle up (and maybe submit a resume), because it’s one hell of a breakneck pace they’re working with.  One that’s not going to leave much room for error, and I would assume means we won’t be seeing Ben Affleck direct movies for a little while.  And that isn’t the only thing we won’t be seeing.

Toy Story That Time Forgot / Mike MIgnola

The upcoming christmas special which reunites the majority of the voice cast and takes the toys on a whole new adventure has a proper poster. It’s not as cool as the Mike Mignola one from ComicCon but it’s pretty cool.

New Doctor Who costume

It was Thanksgiving in Canada this weekend, and to be honest the only thing I want to do less than watch Doctor Who this afternoon is go to the gym.  So I did the only logical thing, got a cup of coffee and settled in for this week’s insanity instalment. Continue reading…

‘Focus’ Trailer: Will Smith + Margot Robbie Pulling A Long Con

Focus / Will Smith

I love a good con movie. When they’re done right they’re the most engaging of whodunits because you never know who is doing exactly what to whom. Focus stars Will Smith as a con man who appears to take young, just starting out con woman played by Margot Robbie (of Wolf of Wall Street fame) under his wing.

Yeah, I’ll buy that. Let’s take a look.
