Entertainment Link-Off: To Infinity and Beyond

dakota johnsonLooks like we can finally catch a glimpse of the sci-fi epic Jupiter Ascending after several months delay this weekend. I suppose this will be good counter programming to Fifty Shades of Grey. Speaking of which, that film is making massive amounts of moolah right now. So let’s kick this off with Dakota Johnson, which apparently is the lone bright spot in the critically panned film. 

After the jump, Joss Whedon stripps Ultron of his powers, creating an ending to a movie seems to be an impossible mission, first look at Aquaman, a companion piece to Birdman, and some Game of Thrones bloopers to lighten up the mood. Continue reading

Entertainment Link-Off: Space and Time

kate mara womens fitnessI can’t believe it’s already February! Anyway, it’s a decent weekend at the movies with two critically panned sci-fi flicks that might still be worth checking out. There’s the found footage time travel pic Project Almanac and also the Wachowski’s latest effort Jupiter Ascending. If you’re not into these flicks however, you might want to catch up on the premiere episodes of Fresh Off the Boat. Great new comedy on ABC right now. Kicking off this ELO is Kate Mara. She is looking mighty fit. Definitely looking forward to the release of Fantastic Four this summer.

After the jump, Ryan Reynolds wants to thank the fans for getting the Deadpool project going, Birdman’s original ending took a potshot at a major film franchise, some Chris Pratt/Chris Evans Super Bowl related stuff, Jimmy Fallon revives Saved by the Bell and there is a new meaning to the term ‘sex toy’ all thanks to Lego.

Entertainment Link-Off: One Less Problem

felicity-jones-film-festivalIt’s the last day of January, and it just so happens to land on a Saturday, so here’s the last ELO of the month! Kicking things off is Felicity Jones. I recently saw The Theory of Everything, which happens to be a fantastic film and all the acting performances were indeed very good. 

After the jump, so notes on Game of Thrones, Jupiter Ascending isn’t really trending upwards, Fantastic Four gets very serious and watch Team Coco tackle Mortal Kombat X! Continue reading

maggie graceInto the Woods just hit the screens in Australia so that’s the film that I’m most excited about checking out this weekend. Meanwhile, everyone else can enjoy the third installment to the Taken series as Liam Neeson kicks all kinds of ass once again.
