'Runaways': A Rundown of the New Marvel Heroes Hitting Hulu

The tactician. The outsider. The golden child. The jock. The social justice warrior. The kid.

These are the simplest ways to describe the six young individuals at the heart of Marvel's Runaways, the brand new superhero drama hitting Hulu on November 21, from The O.C. and Gossip Girl creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage — but simple doesn't cut it when it comes to defining these new teenage heroes.

Based on the comic books of the same name created by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona, Runaways tells the story of six kids forced to band together...

Crowdfund This: Phil Tippett's Mad God, Demented Stop-Motion Animation

I confess that the first two parts of Phil Tippett's Mad God completely passed me by, but now that a kind reader has tipped us off to the existence of Part 3, all I can say is ... wow! Tippett has enjoyed a long career as a visual artist, receiving Academy Award nominations for Dragonslayer, Return of the Jedi, Willow, Jurassic Park, Dragonheart, and Starship Troopers, and taking the Oscar home three times. Of course, that's only the tip of the iceberg; his credits include all three original RoboCop movies, House II: The Second Story, and "demon supervisor" on The Golden Child. Tippett has been increasingly focusing his efforts on Mad God, an epic stop-motion animation project that looks absolutely fantastic, judging by the video...

Robert D. Marta, Camera Operator on ‘Hart to Hart,’ ‘The Jerk,’ Dies at 73
Robert D. Marta, a camera operator who worked on tv shows and films such as “Hart to Hart” and “The Jerk,” has died. He was 73.

Marta died at his home in Bozeman, Mont., on Apr. 13 after suffering from several years of health issues, his family reported.

Born on Oct. 5, 1943 in Pasadena, Calif., Marta went on to become a founding member and the first president of the Society of Operating Cameramen — now Society of Camera Operators — from 1981-85. He was also one of the early champions of the industrywide labor-management safety committee. In 1996, he received the SoC’s Presidents Award for Lifetime Achievement.

The Best Role in Charles Dance’s Career Other than Tywin Lannister on Game of Thrones

Tywin Lannister is one of the most ruthless and evil characters on Game of Thrones. There’s a reason for it. It’s because the actor who plays Tywin has a storied history of being the “bad guy.” Charles Dance is no stranger to playing evil characters. You might remember him as the guy who had the glass eye in Last Action Hero. He’s a tall, skinny, imposing figure with a face that frankly scares you a little. While Dance was great in Last Action hero and he kills it as a Lannister, I’m going with the movie The Golden Child as

‘Feud’ Season 2 Dream Cast: 12 Actors We Need to Play Charles, Diana, the Queen and More

‘Feud’ Season 2 Dream Cast: 12 Actors We Need to Play Charles, Diana, the Queen and More
Princess Diana

As played by Emily Blunt?

We already know that Emily Blunt can totally kill the Princess Di look, thanks to a Halloween costume she wore in “The Five-Year Engagement.” But Blunt is also an incredibly nuanced actress who deserves a meaty lead role like this — and if the film world isn’t going to give it to her, then we happily welcome her to the world of television.

Prince Charles of Wales

As played by Ben Mendelsohn?

Just look at that side-by-side above. Just look at it. Originally from Australia, the Emmy winner is simply perfect. We did briefly consider Tom Hiddleston, but then we looked at Ben Mendelsohn again. Yeah.

Queen Elizabeth II

As played by Jessica Lange?

The grand dame of Murphy-dom may as well have a literal crown at this point.

Newswire: The Force Awakens on Starz this September

  • The AV Club
Starz isn’t always part of our monthly streaming roundups, but it’s impossible to ignore it when a network becomes home to one of the biggest movies of all time. HBO will probably be showing off some fine stuff in September, but only Starz will have a little film called Star Wars: Episode VII—The Force Awakens. Even if you’ve already seen it a few times, Starz getting The Force Awakens means you might be able to catch it randomly while flipping through channels (if you get Starz) or you can just watch it whenever you want (if you’ve got the Starz app). People in 1977 would’ve literally killed somebody for an opportunity to watch Star Wars on their cell phones or Apple TVs or whatever.

In addition to Star Wars, Starz’s September offerings include the original RoboCop trilogy, The Golden Child, a few Halloween

‘The Judas Kiss’ Theater Review: Oscar Wilde on Trial Again, This Time With Rupert Everett

‘The Judas Kiss’ Theater Review: Oscar Wilde on Trial Again, This Time With Rupert Everett
In the last 20 years, Broadway’s critics were probably most wrong about David Hare’s play “The Judas Kiss.” It opened to poor reviews in 1998, and wasn’t even nominated for a best play Tony, with far weaker works being cited, including “Freaks,” “The Golden Child” and “Art,” which won the top prize. A new revival of “The Judas Kiss,” imported from the U.K., opened Tuesday at Bam’s Harvey Theater. It will be interesting to see how critics who trashed the 1998 production review this one, which is nothing short of brilliant. They will probably criticize the original star,

Deadpool Gag Reel Is Hilarious, Raunchy and Definitely Nsfw
In just a few short days, fans will be able to bring the box office sensation Deadpool home on Blu-ray and DVD.

Mad Max: Fury Road – Not Exactly Reinventing the Wheel

Anghus Houvouras on Mad Max: Fury Road

Hyperbole. It’s the designer drug of choice for the cinema fanboys online, still clinging to the idea that there are only masterpieces and unmitigated disasters. Keep this in mind as we discuss George Miller’s wildly praised new blockbuster.

Mad Max: Fury Road has been this strange piece of pop culture currency. Ever since the world got its first new glimpses of Miller’s latest post-apocalyptic action epic, it became heralded as a champion for classic film-making techniques and storytelling. The movie arrived in cinemas practically pre-ordained as the summer movie messiah. The golden child that would deliver us from the weak-willed studio blockbuster and heal the lame franchises plaguing our cineplexes. This is it, party people, the movie that will restore the status quo to the glory days of the 1980s when The Road Warrior and The Terminator reigned supreme.

Christ almighty.

Name Composers Not Above Getting the Boot

Name Composers Not Above Getting the Boot
There was a brief stir in January when composer Harry Gregson-Williams publicly expressed, via Facebook, his surprise at hearing music he didn’t recognize at the premiere of Michael Mann’s thriller “Blackhat” — and at not hearing a lot of score he did write.

The composer says his Facebook post has been blown out of proportion, but admits it was disappointing to see music he toiled over dropped (or replaced) in the final cut. But, he stresses, that’s just part of the game.

“You win some, you lose some,” he says, relaying his early mentor Hans Zimmer’s comment that you haven’t made it as a film composer until you’ve had a score rejected.

Gregson-Williams is simply the latest in a long line of composers who’ve watched scores tossed out and replaced whole-cloth, partially substituted by pre-existing tracks, or mangled beyond recognition. Mann is notorious for

Big Game review: a sparky Samuel L Jackson romp for dads and lads

With its breathtaking vistas and sharp action, this Finnish-set woodland adventure is as spectacular as it is funny

• Full coverage of Toronto 2014

If you’re talking wish fulfilment for 12-year-old boys, it is hard to think of a better premise. On the day before he becomes a teenager, Oscari must head into the Finnish woods with the challenge of proving himself a man. He has to survive the night, use his woodland skills and, most importantly of all, bag himself a beast. Most of his predecessors came back with the head of a deer; his sharp-shooting dad even got a bear. Oscari goes one better though: he saves the life of the president of the United States. Not bad going for a kid who can barely pull back the string on his bow.

The Essential Heart: Ranking Their Top 20 Songs

Ann Wilson is one of the greatest vocalists (male or female) in the history of rock music, and she and sister Nancy tore down barriers and shattered expectations with their group Heart.

Since their 1976 debut Dreamboat Annie and it’s classic Top Ten single “Magic Man,” they defied the rules about women in rock, and became an inspiration for a generation of female musicians.

Today is Ann’s 64th birthday, so let’s pay tribute by counting down Heart’s 20 greatest songs (including a couple of Ann’s solo releases).

Note – Compiling this list, I was shocked by how few songs from Heart’s “Bustier Era” (1985 – 1990) I decided to include. There are only three (and only one in the Top Ten). And their first #1 song “These Dreams?” It didn’t even come close.

20. City’S Burning

Year: 1982

Album: Private Audition

Chart Peak: N/A

The early 80′s were rough for the group,

Dr Who: films of Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy

  • Den of Geek
Feature Alex Westthorp 16 Apr 2014 - 07:00

Alex's trek through the film roles of actors who've played the Doctor reaches Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy...

Read the previous part in this series, Doctor Who: the film careers of Patrick Troughton and Tom Baker, here.

In March 1981, as he made his Doctor Who debut, Peter Davison was already one the best known faces on British television. Not only was he the star of both a BBC and an ITV sitcom - Sink Or Swim and Holding The Fort - but as the young and slightly reckless Tristan Farnon in All Creatures Great And Small, about the often humorous cases of Yorkshire vet James Herriot and his colleagues, he had cemented his stardom. The part led, indirectly, to his casting as the venerable Time Lord.

The recently installed Doctor Who producer, John Nathan-Turner, had been the Production Unit Manager on

Thn’s Die Hard Marvel Fan Attends The ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ Press Conference

After watching the fantastic new Marvel Studios’ production Captain America: The Winter Soldier, I was fortunate enough to attend the London press conference with the majority of the cast in attendance. You can imagine my mixed feelings of excitement, anticipation and anxiousness after learning that my first ever press conference would be directly related to one of my favourite franchises’ of all time, as well as providing 20 minutes in the same room with Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie and the Russo brothers. It’s fair to say that I was pretty ecstatic at the news and after being blown away by the film itself, those feelings were only enhanced.

Of course every ‘first time’ has its speed bumps along the way, and mine came courtesy of almost following Scarlett Johansson and her agent into a large room before lunch. Some may call that a
