It’s that time of the year, when pop culture websites and critics publish their annual Best Of lists and we heap praise on the best and most beloved movies and TV shows of the year. But what about the average moviegoer and TV-viewer? That’s where Facebook comes in. The social media site has released their top 10 movies and top 10 TV shows of the year, based on the most discussed titled of 2014. While some are fairly obvious, the lists might surprise you and inspire you to contemplate the overlap between what’s popular and what’s actually good.
It's the holiday season, and what better way to spend your free time than with some new streaming goodies courtesy of Netflix Instant? Whether your curled up with your loved ones or best buddies, or settling in for some much-need you time, Netflix has some awesome new movies and TV shows headed to Instant this December—from new releases to titles you've been meaning to catch up with, tis the season for binge-watching.
A few days ago, the YouTube page for Universal Spain posted memorable footage of the cup of water vibrating from ‘Jurassic Park’ as a teaser for ‘Jurassic World,’ which seemed pretty curious. But today brings our first official footage from ‘Jurassic World’ in the form of a far more awesome teaser for the trailer, which will hit the web on Thanksgiving day. If that’s not something to be thankful for, what is?
Even though we were told, once upon a time, that Disney and Pixar had no plans for 'Toy Story 4,' it seems that those plans have changed. After a series of short films that kept us up to date with the adventures of Woody and Buzz Lightyear and friends, Disney CEO Bob Iger has just announced that we'll finally be getting a 'Toy Story 4' after all, and it has an official release date and everything.
It's hard to imagine Luke Skywalker being played by anyone but Mark Hamill in the original 'Star Wars' trilogy, but it very well could have happened. And according to 'Nightmare on Elm Street' icon Robert Englund, better known to audiences as Freddy Krueger, it might not have happened at all had he not once told a teenage boy about the part after coming home from a failed 'Star Wars' audition himself.
Back in 2012, some of the cast members from the 'Hobbit' films appeared in an in-flight safety video for Air New Zealand titled "An Unexpected Safety Briefing," and to coincide with the upcoming sequel 'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,' they've made a different kind of sequel: "The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made." It is very epic indeed.
While the newest James Bond movie still has no official title, that hasn't kept it from moving full-speed ahead, with Daniel Craig reprising the role of Agent 007 for Bond's 24th outing. The latest development has French actress and 'Blue Is the Warmest Color' star Lea Seydoux joining the cast in the role of a femme fatale -- someone who could make things quite complicated (and perhaps a bit sexy) for our suave protagonist.
'American Horror Story' returns for a fourth season, taking us under the tent with perhaps its least subtle outing yet, introducing us to the oddities of the 'Freak Show,' led by Jessica Lange's glamorous Elsa Mars. Subtlety has never been creator Ryan Murphy's strong suit, but Murphy (who also wrote and directed tonight's premiere) seems to have fully embraced that approach, delivering what appears to be both the most horrifying and joyful season yet.
'Dracula Untold' is hitting theaters this weekend*, and truth be, uh, told, it doesn't look that great. But it could be worse -- a whole lot worse. Cinema has a rich history with blood-suckers, and thanks to the over-saturation in the genre, it's quite rare to see a great vampire film. For every good one, there's at least 10 not-so-good vampire flicks. Honestly, it was hard to choose just 10 because there are some real stinkers out there. As a disclaimer, we kept 'Twilight' out of this because it was just a little too obvious. We all know it's awful, we don't need to beat a dead sparkle-horse.
*Does Dracula's story really need to be told again? Yeah, dude, we get it.
Richard Kiel, the man most famous for playing James Bond villain Jaws in both 'The Spy Who Loved Me' and 'Moonraker,' passed away earlier this afternoon in Fresno, California at the age of 74. He was just a few days away from celebrating his 75th birthday.
Legendary comedian and talk show host Joan Rivers has left the world with a little less laughter today -- the feisty television mainstay known for her hilarious candor and dizzyingly quick wit has sadly passed away at the age of 81, following complications during a surgical procedure.
The 'Saw' franchise has been dead for a while now, but good news for fans of Jigsaw and his creepy little puppet: the original 'Saw' that started it all is heading back to theaters this October to celebrate its 10th anniversary.
