J.K. Rowling To Release New Harry Potter Story For Halloween
Bombardier Jedi   |  

Harry Potter Rupert Grint (Ron), Daniel Radcliffe (Harry), and Emma Watson (Hermione)

Author J.K. Rowling of Harry Potter fame has been promising something big was coming and fans of the series have been in a frenzy trying to figure it out. Well, Halloween is upon us and it’s been announced that Rowling is going to release a new story featuring one of the most hated (and arguably most evil characters) in all of the Potter storyline, Dolores Umbridge.

It has been a mixed response to the revelation that fans were going to be given more background into the overzealous Defense of the Dark Arts teacher from Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix. Fans can expect about 1,700 words or so of insight into the character through Rowling’s website Pottermore.

Disney In Depth banner

Maleficent
2-Disc Blu-ray l DVD l Digital HD
Directed by Robert Stromberg
Starring Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley, Sam Riley, Brenton Thwaites
Walt Disney Home Entertainment
Release Date: Nov 4, 2014

Disney’s unexpected summer blockbuster that grossed more than $750 million worldwide arrives for its home release. Maleficent, the live-action retelling of the Sleeping Beauty tale from the perspective of the evil fairy, may offer more visual spectacle than storytelling substance, but it’s far from cursed. The Blu-ray debut of Maleficent soars as an overall presentation, albeit blighted when evaluating its individual parts.

Thrashback Thursday: “Bring The Noise” By Anthrax With Public Enemy
Ides Bergen   |  

Antrax and Public Enemy

Bring the Noise” was originally done by Public Enemy and first appeared on the soundtrack to the 1987 film Less Than Zero. It was also the first single from the band’s 1988 album It Takes A Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back.

After New York thrash band Anthrax displayed their appreciation for Public Enemy by wearing the group’s T-shirts onstage, Chuck D and Flor Flav agreed to appear on their cover of the song, thus creating the genre of rap-metal. The collaboration appeared on both Anthrax’s Attack of the Killer B’s and Public Enemy’s Apocalypse 91… The Enemy Strikes Black.

Here with the official video for their collaborative cover are Anthrax and Public Enemy with “Bring The Noise.”

Movie Review: Horns
The Geeks of Doom   |  

Review by Yasin Lago

Horns review header

Horns
Directed by Alexandre Aja
Written by Keith Bunin, Adapted from the novel by Joe Hill
Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Max Minghella, Juno Temple, Kelli Garner, Joe Anderson, James Remar, Kathleen Quinlan, David Morse, Heather Graham
Lions Gate
Rated R | 123 Minutes
Release Date: Oct 31, 2014 (Limited)

The title of the latest project by Alexandre Aja, Horns, would have you focus on a couple of appendages growing out of a young man’s head. As it turns out, that is the least of his problems. His physical setback is nothing compared to the mental and emotional toll he’ll take before his world (and reality) completely unravels. As circumstances change, our lead goes from being in a dark place to a literal and figurative descent into Hell.

When we come upon Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe), life for him has begun to take a very intense turn. His beloved (by everyone) and loved girlfriend and soul mate, played as an ethereal forest nymph-next-door by Juno Temple, has been brutally murdered. Ig is implicated in this and is quickly judged by the entire community as the culprit (with no help from waitress/eyewitness Heather Graham). Now town pariah, he begins to settle into this half self-imposed exiled Limbo for lowlifes when…things…change.
