netflix

As you know, Netflix has to periodically change out the movies and TV shows they offer and it’s that time of the month where we say goodbye to some movies and TV shows and hello to others.

As usual, there’s a little good and a little bad in each category.

On the departing list, there’a a lot of Barney going away but we’re also losing Serenity, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and Apocalypse Now. However, Snowpiercer, The Rocketeer, and the original Total Recall are being added, so that’s cool.

If you want to watch any of the stuff that’s being removed, today is your last chance.

You can see the full list of changes after the break.

PeeWee Herman and Jimmy Fallon

Paul Reubens appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon earlier this week to promote the shiny new remastered version of Pee-wee’s Playhouse on DVD and Blu-ray from Shout Factory. While he was chatting with Fallon, he announced that a new Pee-wee Herman movie is coming to theaters. Judd Apatow is producing the movie, and they’ll start filming in February 2015. Thanks, Paul Reubens, for keeping my childhood alive forever!

Watch the interview after the break along with his redub of the Age Of Ultron trailer.

Hot Toys released images of gorgeous Chewbacca and Han Solo figures as the first in its Star Wars line and now it’s going to the Imperial side with this Stormtrooper. The figure will be 30 cm tall and have 7 different hands to hold either a Blastech E-11 rifle or SE-14r Blast Pistol.

There’s also a two-pack with one Stormtrooper that’s shorter. Yes, he’s a little short for a Stormtrooper at 28 cm tall. The two-pack comes with a Mouse Droid and a DLT-19 Heavy Blaster Rifle.

The figure is available for pre-order now with an expected ship date of August 2015.

I’d love to tell you that I saw Entertainment Weekly‘s special Terminator: Genisys coverage and did a happy little fangirl dance. It’s not out of the realm of possibility. I mean, I like the Terminator franchise. I liked the Sarah Connor Chronicles. Heck, I even like Rise of the Machines and Terminator: Salvation. That’s how forgiving I am.

But, I may have just hit the “Are you kidding ME?!?!” wall with the news of what producers David Ellison and Dana Goldberg and director Alan Taylor have planned storywise for Genisys. It’s…well, to call it a reboot is like saying remodeling a house from top to bottom but keeping the paint the same color is a “touch up”.

Since it containers spoilers, I’ll put it in after the break. Head there if you want to know more.

ultron extended

If you’ve been watching Agents Of SHIELD, then you are definitely worthy. That’s where this extended Avengers: Age Of Ultron clip made it’s debut last night. Seriously, if you haven’t watched SHIELD yet (or if you stopped watching), now would be a great time to get on board.

If you missed it, don’t worry. The full Ultron “Pinocchio” scene that was touched on in the original trailer can be viewed after the break…

Star Wars fans will dig this: Charlie Rose had the opportunity to interview George Lucas last week, and George took a bit of time to chat about the “meaning” behind the Star Wars universe.

Sure, some of us (including myself) may have a few issues with how George handled the prequels, but when you hear him talking about the ideas that drove his overall inspiration for the original Star Wars movies–themes related to mythic storytelling, religion and mortality–you get a better understanding of why those first movies were so magnificent and influential.

Since most of us did not receive a letter telling us that we had been accepted to Hogwarts, the closest we will probably ever come is a Harry Potter-themed hotel like this one. The 163-year old Georgian House Hotel in London has turned several of its rooms into Hogwarts-style student rooms that you can stay in for about $400 a night. There’s also a package for $585 that includes a walking tour of the movie’s London landmarks and a ticket to the “Making of Harry Potter” tour and Warner Bros. studios.
