David Letterman retire

David Letterman has announced he will retire in 2015. The announcement was made during a taping of The Late Show on Thursday, April 3rd 2014. In October it was announced that Letterman had extended his Late Show hosting contract through 2015, and many suspected that this would be his last run behind the desk. At the time, Letterman joked via a press release that “[CBS CEO] Les [Moonves] and I had a lengthy discussion, and we both agreed that I needed a little more time to fully run the show into the ground.” With Jay Leno’s departure from the late night landscape, the late night wars have seemed rather uninteresting.

The Math of Pixar

What did we really learn from our high school math classes, and how much have we used those learned skills in the real world? While I haven’t used much of my advanced math education in my film blogging career, the movies we watch couldn’t exist without these calculations. Pixar Research Lead Tony DeRose gave a TED Talk talking about how Pixar uses math to create their magical computer animated feature films that we have come to love.

DeRose delves into the math behind the animations, explaining how arithmetic, trigonometry and geometry help bring Woody and the rest of your favorite characters to life.

Watch the TED Talk video embedded after the jump to learn about the math of Pixar movies.

How Many Days Have You Wasted Watching TV Shows?

Days Watching TV Shows

We all spent a lot of time watching television. How much do you think you’ve spent over your lifetime? If you totaled all that time days watching TV shows — how many years, days, hours would you have spent staring at the glowing television screen? Lets find out…

*note: the headline uses the word “wasted”, but I personally don’t regret any of the time I’ve spent on television (except for maybe some of the shows I gave up on)

The Hobbit: The Desolation of an Unexpected Journey
When I walked out of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the first thing I said to someone was “After they release the other two movies, some fan will edit a cut of the three films into a great three hour movie.” Its funny how things change — with the Lord of the Rings films we were clamoring for extended editions, but now we think less is more (it may have something to do with the fact this is one and a half books stretched to three movies vs. three books adapted into three films).

We still haven’t gotten the third chapter of Peter Jackson‘s Hobbit adaptation, but some fan has edited the first two movies into a trailer for a mash-up movie titled The Hobbit: The Desolation of an Unexpected Journey. Lets hope that once The Hobbit: There and Back Again is released, a good editor will combine the three adaptations into one three-hour-long movie cut. For now, you can watch the epic mash-up The Hobbit: The Desolation of an Unexpected Journey embedded after the jump.

Game of Thrones honest trailer - Season 3 - Daenerys

ScreenJunkies has returned with a five-minute-long honest trailer for the popular HBO series adaptation Game of Thrones. The Game of Thrones honest trailer covers seasons 1-3, so be warned it contains spoilers from those episodes. They also created a “non-spoiler” version of the trailer, with blurred out imagery and such but if if you haven’t caught up on the show I wouldn’t trust it. Watch the Game of Thrones honest trailer embedded after the jump.
