Trailer Time: Newsroom Season 3 Teaser #1 (HBO – 2014)

I would read the phone book if Aaron Sorkin wrote it.  In fact, I’m sure the phone book could be improved with snappy dialogue best consumed when walking quickly from one place to another.  No one uses the phone book anymore anyway, so why ISN’T Sorkin writing it is the real question.

I’m not sure why The Newsroom never found favor with the critics that past Sorkin series (The West Wing, SportsNight) have.  I think the first cold open of the series is one of the best scenes I’ve ever seen on TV, and maybe that the rest of the series never got to that level consistently ended up sandbagging it.  I’m glad it’s getting a third and final season though.  Sorkin has said that he feels like he’s just figured out how to write the show, so while it’s sad that’s happening in a final season, it should be one to remember.  The Newsroom returns to HBO this November.

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2

How to Train Your Dragon 2 Blu Ray/DVD Release Date and Details

How to Train Your Dragon 2

While I loved the first film, How to Train Your Dragon 2 didn’t really have the joy of the original.  That being said, obviously others disagree because it made over half a billion globally, and I still thought it was fun and absolutely stunning animation.  Dreamworks is loading the Blu Ray with tons of extras to sate your dragon-riding needs until the third film is released in 2017.  How to Train Your Dragon 2 releases on Blu Ray and DVD on November 11th.  The full press release and details on the extras are below.

Killing Time August 28, 2014 – What the F*ck, PG-13?

images

Note: Due to an attempt to keep this column PG-13 (at least by MPAA standards), the word “f*ck” will be replaced by the word “woodchuck”.

This is a rant that’s been long in coming, probably since John Malkovich dropped an F-bomb in the third Transformers movie (classy).  The MPAA, in its infinite wisdom, has decided that you can still maintain a PG-13 rating with one, possibly two, “woodchucks”.  It used to be sporadic (and in a Michael Bay film not even in the top 25 of most appalling things), but this summer X-Men: Days of Future Past, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Edge of Tomorrow and even Hercules (really?) have used their allotted “woodchuck”.  Just because you CAN, doesn’t mean you SHOULD, you woodchucking idiots.

Transformers: Age of Extinction Blu Ray/DVD Release Date and Details

Why you would want to do this to yourselves, I have no earthly idea, but if you want to exchange currency for the Blu Ray of the fourth film in the Transformers saga, it will hit stores on September 30th and debuting digitally two weeks prior.  Paramount released the extras and there are a lot of them and all almost guaranteed to be more interesting than the film.
