WTF: Blood Energy Potion

Blood Energy Potion

Two years ago this wouldn’t be film news. Sure, it would be weird (perhaps even weirder than it is today), but it would have no connection to the movie world. Then Twilight had to appear in cinemas and ruin everything, as every thirteen-year-old girl started running out to Hot Topic hoping that an Edward in their life would turn them into a vampire. Of course, because vampires are not real, this is just stupid. Not stupid enough for the people at Urban Collector however. Read the rest of this entry »

Michael Sheen - Tony Blair

In 2003, Michael Sheen performed for the first time as former Prime Minister Tony Blair in a made for TV movie called The Deal, directed by Stephen Frears.

Sheen is currently filming The Special Relationship, due out in 2011, which will take a closer look at the ties between Blair and US Presidents Bill Clinton and George Bush.

Now, through his Twitter account, Sheen has announced that he is no longer going to play the man who helped reinvent the labour party. Read the rest of this entry »

Twilight, Thirst, True Blood, The Vampire Diaries, etc.) it was only a matter of time before people would return to the woman who changed vampire mythos in film during the mid-1990s – Anne Rice.

Bryce-Shame

(Ashamed Polar Bear and I are very disappointed)

Bryce Dallas Howard is the daughter of Ron Howard, one of the most successful working directors today, the granddaughter of Rance Howard, and the Goddaughter of Henry Winker. So, with so many talented people surrounding her, how is it possible that she keeps signing on to the worst dreck imaginable. What am I referring to? Why, Twilight of course! From Variety:
