ENTOURAGE2013Mark Wahlberg has given a few details regarding the forthcoming Entourage movie.

The actor, who executive-produced the series, said they hope to avoid making something similar to Sex and the City 2.

“We’ll start shooting around the end of the summer,” Wahlberg said.

“It’s never finished. We never wanted it to end, and we’ve always had people complain the episodes are too short, but it got tricky. ‘Sex and the City’ did a great job on the first movie, but it’s tough.

“If we get back to what people really loved about the show which is the guys… over the years they developed great relationships with female characters, but it was essentially about the guys… so we’re going to get back to that. If we don’t do it bad, I think we’ll be ok.” Continue reading »


A Game of Thrones nerd is responsible for this full size Iron Throne replica made from old computer keyboards and a deck chair.

The “artist” said: “The underlying message is one of suffering. The keyboards have been melted and warped. They’re made to twist to fit, but at the same time that renders them unuseable because they cannot fulfill their intended purpose. The keyboards are black and silver, and the underlying chair is white, but those colours have been replaced with black, in whole or in random splotches. Continue reading »

SHIELDWhedon talks new S.H.I.E.L.D. series

Joss Whedon has hinted at what to expect from his new S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series. “It’s not about murder, and it’s not about crime, and it’s not people looking into their own belly buttons,” he said. “It’s about people who are trying to help each other, and that’s one of the things I loved about comic books. They had costumes and the villains were cool [but] they stood for something, and I like doing a show that does that. We’re trying very hard to be true to [Marvel’s] ethos and also to the structure of their universe, so it is definitely a Marvel show.”

agent-annaThis morning TVNZ sent out a press release celebrating the ratings success of Robyn Malcom’s new show, Agent Anna.  When we reviewed it we found it pretty hard to watch and while we don’t appear to be alone, the ratings would suggest that people are still watching it.

So, here is a question for those who have seen more than the first episode.  Is it really worth watching?

Is Agent Anna worth sticking with?
