Sony builds up CES 2015 appearance with surreal teaser video

From GadgeTell The point of teaser videos posted by tech companies in anticipation of events like CES or MWC is typically to build hype around what’s to come without actually revealing what’s to come. Ergo, we’ve grown used to the vagueness and mystery, but Sony is pushing ambiguity to new heights. Read the full post on GadgeTell »

Kate Winslet brings ‘A Little Chaos’ to the Versailles in first trailer

While few know her name, even fewer know her import to the position of women in the world. During the 17th Century, when females were little more than chattel among men of means, she stood out.

Denzel Washington has not been “blacklisted”- and it’s stupid to suggest he has

I’m getting really sick of the word “blacklisted” being thrown around, to mean things that it doesn’t actually mean. We had this a few months ago, when a few critical comments by Hollywood executives about the anti-Israel stances of Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz led to talk that they’d been “blacklisted” (a blacklisting that didn’t more »

Fin: Obama and “The Interview,” Serial non-listeners against Serial and many, many sixth boroughs

I don’t get these people blaming Barack Obama for the “Interview” cancellation. What did you want him to do, force the release to proceed?

There have been some clever cover versions of the traditional holiday carol “The 12 Days of Christmas,” with my personal favorite being the one offered up by those two fictional hosers, Bob and Doug McKenzie (Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas of ‘SCTV’ fame). But this latest alteration, created as a second trailer for Liam Neeson‘s more »
