New Game of Thrones season 3 featurette serves as a lesson in locations vs. effects

A new featurette for HBO's Game of Thrones, season 3, has surfaced, this time focusing on the location of Iceland, which the series uses to represent the land "beyond the wall," which is a vast, snow-and-ice covered landscape, populated by the wildlings who are led by Mance Rayder ( Ciaran Hinds ).  One of the lead characters, Jon Snow (Kit Harrington), a member of the Knight's Watch, is the...

Games of Thrones third season gets a new, surreal teaser

GAME OF THRONES fans have only a couple months longer before the show returns for a third season. The new episodes will be following the first half of the novel "A Storm of Swords" and will feature some major events that change the lives of all the characters.

Would you pony up for a sequel to Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy?

Gary Oldman 's singularly driven and commanding performance aside, I wasn't the biggest fan of TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY.  Being an complete devotee of director Tomas Alfredson 's previous film (LET THE RIGHT ONE IN) and a lover of the last time we saw a John Le Carre adaptation in cinemas (2005's THE CONSTANT GARDNER ), I sloughed off anybody who claimed that they were bored by...

The fine folks over at The Shiznit have rounded up a new batch of "truth" movie posters for the year and they're pretty damn awesome.  While I may not dislike the movies featured here, I can't deny the hard smack of honesty that's presented here.  I mean, I loved JOHN CARTER , but that love isn't going to change the fact that it sunk like, well, a giant turd.  The rest are...

A film veteran remembers: my top five war films

It would probably be more apropos if this editorial focused on "films that explore the veteran experience" or some such category more specific to yesterday's importance.  But I haven't seen a wide enough selection of films which cover that topic, so my list would hardly be anything close to a qualified or considered opinion.  So here's what I'm going to do - part of Veterans Day is,...
