  • Xbox One and why it will stomp sony in the end

    The console wars have been well underway for sometime now and while many consider the battle a tight one they couldnt be more wrong. Much has been made about the specs of each system with some selective minds stating it makes the xbox one seem inferior. To those I internally laugh...why? Because the reality is that specs wont change but the softwares of both will continue to evolve.

     

    Many sources have ignored the facts of variable application capable via the xb1 and while im a long time fan of sony their environment of adaptation is limited, very limited. The best arguments ive heard are in relation to Microsofts higher priced system is that somehow it is inferior and not made for gaming primarily. Well perhaps these people havent bothered to look at the primary function of that system. The reality is that its a gaming system that if permitted and worked could literally find application around your entire home not just your place of watching tv. The xbox one in theory could be paired up with outlets, security systems, and virtually anything that is powered by bluetooth, wifi, or electricity.

     

    The other reality is that at a five hundred dollar base price it is the most cost effective priced entry into smart home technology. Companies like twc and verizon have invested millions into this same of technology, microsoft offers them the ability to deploy their technology into a device already in millions of homes. So yes, the console wars have just begun but microsft leads it.

  • ‘12 Years a Slave,’ ‘American Hustle’ Lead Golden Globes Nominations

    “12 Years a Slave” and “American Hustle” paced the nominations for 71st annual Golden Globes with a total of seven nominations each. Nabbing four Globe nominations were “Captain Phillips” and “Gravity.” The five best motion picture nominees, drama, went to “12 Years a Slave,” “Captain Phillips,” “Gravity,” “Philomena,” and “Rush.” Meanwhile, nominated for Best Motion Picture Comedy or Musical were “American Hustle, Her,” “Inside Llewyn Davis,” “Nebraska” and “The Wolf of Wall Street.” As an Oscar predictor, the Globes have been fairly unreliable in the past decade. However, as a tool to promote the nominated films to the general public, they are a powerhouse. While half of the nominations are devoted to TV (see separate story), the film side gets more attention, because of the Globes are part of the awards season culminating in the Academy Awards. There were a few surprise inclusions and omissions, as always. But in general, the Globes...

  • Cause of Paul Walker's death won't be known for at least 90 days

    Paul Walker's remains will be laid to rest this weekend, but there are still questions to be answered about what caused the fatal Nov. 30 car crash that took his and Roger Rodas' lives. But, it could take up to 90 days for authorities to determine what caused the Porsche Carrera Gt to strike a light pole, two trees and a speed limit sign. Because, as Detective Jeff Maag told the Hollywood Reporter on Dec. 12, any reports of the sports car's speed are completely speculative at this point. Detective Maag said more work needs to be done before many facts about the accident are known. Before these results are known, he's only comfortable confirming the vehicle was traveling at least 45 miles per hour...

  • Sony's Mike Deluca firing up franchise returns? Yes indeed...Bad Boys 3 coming soon

    Seems like the new man in Charge at Sony will be firing off on all cylinders by teaming up Martin Lawrence and Will Smith to do a third installment of "Bad Boys". The franchise which has been box office gold has been long rumored to be in negotiations but with no final confirmation. Well it seems Deluca is going to make it happen and it should be believed that it won't just end with the this franchise reintroduction to the masses. Expect to see the water stirring soon enough with more rumors of boot ups, it's not a bad idea as long as the direction of the projects live up to their standards of the past, a failure with Bad Boys 3 may kill the return of other planned franchise entries. Smith most recently seen in a scifi catastrophe could use a box office smash and Lawrence who has re-emerged in public as of late could use a spark to get his career hot again.

  • World War Z Sequel gets a director

    After making $540 million at the worldwide box office, Paramount has worked fast to find a director for its sequel to “World War Z” with “The Impossible” helmer Juan Antonio Bayona coming on board to direct. Brad Pitt is expected to return to star and produce. No writers are attached at this time. In the original, Pitt played a former United Nations employee who travels the world trying to stop a zombie plague. While the first film’s production was overshadowed in controversy that included a rewrite of the third act, the film more than overperformed at the box-office, propelling development on the sequel. Bayona, who also helmed “The Orphanage,” is repped by CAA.

  • Brad Pitt's Plan B leaving Paramount Pictures

    After an eight-year run at the studio, it looks like Brad Pitt will and his Plan B production banner will be leaving Paramount. A source close to the situation says that the studio will not be renewing Plan B’s deal when it ends in 2014 and that Pitt will be moving the company elsewhere. The insider added that it was likely that Plan B would be headed for a deal with New Regency, which worked with Plan B on the Fox Searchlight film “12 Years a Slave.” The news is interesting, since the studio and Pitt have just tapped Juan Antonio Bayona to helm the sequel to “World War Z.” Plan B and Paramount had gone through some rough times in the last year after a problematic shoot on “World War Z,” but those problems seemed to fade once “World War Z” grossed more than $540 million at the worldwide box office.

  • Tommy Chong set to appear on "Raising hope"

    Tommy Chong of “Cheech and Chong” will guest star in an episode of “Raising Hope” as the proud owner of a medical marijuana card — of course. Hopefully, he won’t get typecast as a stoner from the role. Chong will play Hubert, a love interest to Cloris Leachman’s character, Maw Maw, in an upcoming episode of the Fox comedy. And it sounds like Maw Maw is going to puff puff a little herself. Also read: Brooke Shields to Join ‘The Michael J.

"I haven't done anything wrong. I'm innocent," she told Judge Robert Mandelbaum. "You're doing a mistake right now." The judge found Sabourin guilty of stalking, attempted aggravated harassment, harassment and attempted contempt of court, saying she had no right to pursue contact she knew to be unwanted.

  • Jamie Dornan set to play Christian Grey in '50 shades of grey' film

    Well it seems like Jamie Dornan has either hit the big time or has just set himself up for failure, depends on who you ask amongst the rabid critics of the enormously successful book franchise. Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam had been on board to take play the lead role but abandoned the project after creative conflicts and stories of a whopping $150k payday to the actor. This film while having major expectations is banking on up and coming stars to carry it to critical love and box office success. Let's hope Jamie didn't jump aboard a sinking ship because its failures of highly anticipated movies that have notoriously destroyed promising careers. Jamie Dornan is best known for his role in "Once upon a time" and Soffia Coppola's "Marie Antoinette", he will star opposite of Dakota Johnson with Sam Taylor-Johnson set to direct the film. Let's hope they can finally start really filming this time around.

  • The lasting effects of "Breaking Bad"

    Last weekend Breaking Bad's creator Vince Gilligan stated "We always want to outlive our work. Rod Sterling is a perfect example of that." That quote itself should give you an insight into how this critically acclaimed series was approached. Breaking Bad was the story of a terminally ill man finally having enough and snapping. The path Gilligan and his team of writers drove us down was one that defied the formula of modern day TV. Walter White was a character of many layers, a repressed genius who missed his chance at fame and fortune by choosing teaching over corporate science. A suburban dad of a disabled son and a bored wife, a man just following routine and the butt of most jokes told by his DEA brother in law. It was a risky show, one the actors believed in more than the suits, it wasn't until well into the middle of the first season that true promotion began and even then it wasn't what you would expect for a show that would have such an incredible impact of it's audience. The way Gilligan and company weaved the story of such a dull man into one of the greatest crime dramas ever is just amazing. They found a way of giving you an answer to a question while setting up a question resulting from that. To take us through the emotions of kind and sweet to sinister and volatile are remarkable. Just when you start disliking someone they introduce someone you dislike more or an instance that changes how you view certain characters. You cared whether this guy was ok or that guy would survive. Would Hank catch on? Will Walt's wife leave? It became an experience that educated it's audience regarding what made each character tick. Breaking Bad has received many awards, nominations, and it's healthy dose of praise but not nearly enough. Proof of that will be the statistics now after the show came to it's conclusion. The the audience for Breaking Bad via services like Netflix and other streaming services will continue to explode much like Rod Sterling's Twilight Zone continues to dominate streaming services. The dvd, digital sales, and bluray sales have already been insane and record setting and television will again open up the belief that shows who don't stick to the he,he,ha,ha formula are worth investing in.
