The Never-ending Story Tami Stronach interview

When I saw the Spotify ad with all grown up Atreyu flying around on Falcor listening to Limahl’s theme song to The Neverending Story, I tweeted about it. This caught the attention of Tami Stronach, who when she was 11 played the Childlike Empress in the film. She’s been engaging fans with Falcor drawing contests and news about her current activities, so I arranged an interview with Stronach by phone out of New York.

star trek beyond trailer breakdown

The new trailer for Star Trek Beyond arrived late on Friday night, instantly washing the dreadful taste of the first trailer out of our mouths. Unlike the initial teaser, this footage looks like it comes from an actual Star Trek movie and you know what that means – there is a whole bunch of stuff to sift through if you go through the whole thing frame-by-frame and shot-by-shot.

Since we haven’t seen the movie, this post will contain all kinds of speculation and over-analysis, which means it could be loaded with potential spoilers. Just trek cautiously. And if you want additional reading, Peter Sciretta’s newly published set visit report sheds additional light on the film (and even directly answers and clarifies some of the observations below).

Star Trek Beyond Set Visit

Last Summer, I visited the set of Star Trek Beyond in Vancouver, Canada. Find out what I learned on set, including how over 50 new alien species were created for this film in honor of Trek’s 50th anniversary, how director Justin Lin has put an end to JJ Abrams’ “camera hand jobs” (yes, you just read that right) and much much more.

preacher review

Preacher is a very different beast than the Vertigo comic book series it is based on and for many fans, this will be a difficult hurdle to leap. But everyone else can just jump right in and enjoy the blasphemy, irreverent comedy and the hilariously excessive violence, because the first chapter of AMC’s new series is a triumph. This is the kind of pilot episode that arrives feeling fully formed and confident. Preacher knows what it is, lays all of its cards on the table in the first five minutes, and asks you to come along for the ride with a wicked gleam in its eye. From the look of things, this will be a ride worth taking.

the door recap

We’ve reached the halfway point of Game of Thrones season six and the meticulously assembled dominos of the past five or so years have officially started tumbling down. “The Door” is an hour of major story progression, vital character development, and revelations that manage to redefine much of what we’ve seen before. If we didn’t already know that the show had an end in sight, episodes like this would clue us in to that fact. Game of Thrones is burning Westeros down this season and, as usual, no one is safe. Let’s run through the most important things that happened this week.

Fred Armisen Saturday Night Live

Last night the 41st season of Saturday Night Live came to a close by bringing former cast member Fred Armisen back to host the show for the first time. Usually when you get an SNL veteran coming back to host, that means some kind of reunion is in order and plenty of returning characters are paraded around. However, even though Fred Armisen did reprise one of his characters from his days on the show, this was mostly a night of original sketches. The good news is cast members like Maya Rudolph, Jason Sudeikis and Andy Samberg came back to get in on the fun.

Check out our rundown of the Fred Armisen Saturday Night Live episode after the jump.

movie fan controversies

We’ve yet to get confirmation that Daniel Craig is done with the James Bond franchise. But considering he spent the Spectre press tour calling his character a misogynist and declaring he’d rather slash his wrists than play Bond again — and considering recent rumors that he’s turned down $100 million to reprise the role for two more films — it seems a safe assumption that he won’t be sticking around for too much longer. So the question, then, is who’ll replace him. Because Bond is eternal — the only question is what form he’ll take on next. It’ll probably be a while before we get a real answer, but in the meantime, here are some of our favorite choices.  Read More »
