Since publishing the last 'Calvin and Hobbes' comic strip on December 31, 1995, Bill Watterson, the notoriously private creator behind the series, has only granted one interview (an e-mail exchange with his hometown newspaper, the Plain Dealer, on the 15th anniversary of the strip). Many have tried to get in touch with Mr. Watterson over the years (and a documentary is scheduled to hit theaters this year on that very topic) and almost all have failed.
But, inexplicably, Watterson has emerged from hiding and spoke at length about the legacy of 'Calvin and Hobbes' and the potential for an animated movie.
Cinemax After Dark - or Skinemax, as it's more widely known - is a block of "adult programming" broadcast on Cinemax after midnight. Starting in 1984, the programming block became a staple of teenagers in the late-80s/early-90s, who grew up on sneaking downstairs while their parents were sleeping to catch some skin (not that we know from experience...).
Well, the good times are about to come to a close as Cinemax looks to rebrand, leaving Skinemax in the dust.
Just yesterday, Quentin Tarantino revealed his list of his favorite movies of 2013; a list that spurred some debate at which films really were the best of the year. But, when it comes to the title of Worst Movie of 2013, there will be no such debate. At the top will sit 'The Starving Games,' the latest "comedy" from Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the prolific spoofing duo behind 'Date Movie,' 'Epic Movie' and, yes, 'Disaster Movie.'
He's arguably one of the best filmmakers working today. He's also (arguably) one of the best film critics in his spare time. So, when Quentin Tarantino shares his list for the best movies of any particular time period, we take notice.
Today, we have word on what Tarantino considers his top 10 movies of 2013 and while some selections won't surprise you ('Gravity'), others ('The Lone Ranger'??) will.
We've heard rumblings of the Sinister Six in future 'Amazing Spider-Man' movies, a plan that would theoretically bring back villains from the first film and the upcoming 'Amazing Spider-Man 2.' Now, we seemingly have some confirmation of that plan as Paul Giamatti has confirmed that he will return as The Rhino in 'Amazing Spider-Man 3.'
Perhaps all work and no play really does make Jack a dull boy.
3-time Oscar-winning actor Jack Nicholson has quietly retired from acting according to a new report citing sources close to the 76-year-old actor. The actor reportedly suffering from memory loss and has no further plans to appear in any more movies.
After 'The Lone Ranger' opened to poor reviews and disappointing box office, Johnny Depp was criticized for his recent acting choices. From 'Pirates of the Caribbean 4' to 'Dark Shadows,' many accused Depp of going through the motions, all-too-happy to cash his paycheck to star in whatever Disney or Tim Burton was asking him to star in, regardless of the quality.
In a related story, Johnny Depp is in final negotiations to return as The Mad Hatter in Disney's 'Alice in Wonderland 2.'
There have been a lot of complaints about 'Star Trek Into Darkness' since the film opened, one of them from female fans who felt that having character Carol Marcus (Alice Eve) strip down to her bra and panties for no apparent reason was sexist. The complaints became too much for 'Star Trek Into Darkness' writer/producer Damon Lindelof who finally admitted the shot was "gratuitous" and "unnecessary."
