The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Extended Edition Release Date, Details and a Deleted Scene

This is just one of the scenes that will be added back into Peter Jackson’s middle chapter in The Hobbit Trilogy: The Desolation of Smaug.  I’ve said since I left the theater that I wanted to see this cut because, in particular, Gandalf’s storyline and Dol Guldur have scenes,  pivotal scenes, that I know were cut.  Twenty-five minutes are being added back into the film this time.  Nobody does special features like Jackson and company too so we’re in for another treat when this hits stores on November 4th.  More details below Continue reading The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Extended Edition Release Date, Details and a Deleted Scene

Watch the First 7 Minutes of Star Wars: Rebels

For those of you who can’t wait until October (and who can?), Disney has posted the first seven minutes of Star Wars: Rebels online for us to analyze frame-by-frame for meaning and hidden Jawas.

“Star Wars Rebels” continues the epic tradition of the legendary Star Wars saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures. It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people. The clever and motley crew of the starship Ghost is amongst a select few who are brave enough to stand against the Empire. Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, encounter colorful adversaries, embark on thrilling adventures and become heroes with the power to ignite a rebellion.

Scheduled to premiere in October 2014 as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel, “Star Wars Rebels” will be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world.

Every Easter Egg in Guardians of the Galaxy

For fans of Marvel’s Cosmic Universe, Guardians of the Galaxy was an Easter Egg basket of comicky in-jokes and references.  Because Mr. Sunday was already good enough to compile them all into a video, enjoy the clever hidden gems.  Oh, and spoiler warning for those of you yet to GO SEE THE MOVIE!!!

My Favorite Scene: 30 Rock Season 2 “Therapy Jack Style” (2007)

 

Tina Fey is a freaking genius.  30 Rock never got the critical acclaim it should have over its seven year run, but it never flagged, was always true to its characters and delivered some of the funniest moments in the last ten years of television.  Fey created, wrote, produced and starred in the show, plus she cast actors generally known for their inability to work with others and wove it into the fabric of the show.  No greater example of this is Alec Baldwin’s Jack Donaghy, one of my ten greatest sitcom characters of all-time.  His effortless ability to segue from wise, all-knowing executive into complete lunatic and back provided some of the show’s best moments including this clip from the second season episode “Rosemary’s Baby” where the NBC shrink asks Jack to help Tracy Morgan with some parental issues.
