NYCC 2016 Interview: Graham McTavish Talks ‘Preacher’s Killer Of Saints
Dr. Zaius   |  

Graham McTavish on Preacher

At New York Comic-Con Saturday afternoon, I had the pleasure of shooting the breeze with veteran actor Graham McTavish. The Scottish actor has over 100 IMDb credits including film, TV, and voiceover work in both animation and video games. He was in Peter Jackson’s Hobbit film trilogy (as the dwarf Dwalin), and had been a regular on both Prison Break and 24. Currently, he can be seen on the hit Starz series Outlander where he plays Dougal MacKenzie, as well as on AMC’s Preacher as The Cowboy/The Killer Of Saints. Between my wife’s obsession with Outlander and my love of Preacher, Graham McTavish is a popular man in our home.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

Extended editions of films normally are seen in the DVD and Blu-ray release, and very rarely get a theatrical release. But fans of Peter Jackson‘s The Hobbit trilogy should be excited to know that the longer cut of all three films will be hitting the big screen this fall.

More on this story after the jump.

Peter Jackson Had Replica Of ‘The Hobbit’s Bag End Built Behind Secret Doors At His House

Peter Jackson On The Set Of The Hobbit

What happens when a geek finds themselves abundantly wealthy? They purchase massive homes and add lots and lots of amazing stuff to them. We’ve seen it with Guillermo del Toro’s Bleak House, and now we have another example with The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies director Peter Jackson‘s 1930s mansion in New Zealand.

Jackson has had all sorts of cool stuff built to make his home unique, but perhaps most notably is the addition of an exact replica of Bilbo Baggins’ Hobbit house, Bag End. And better yet, Jackson had it built underground, behind secret doors.

Sir Christopher Lee – Remembering a Legend
Dr. Zaius   |  

Christopher Lee

This is not an obituary or a career retrospective. This is simply one fan discussing his memories of an amazing man and tremendous actor — Sir Christopher Lee, who passed away earlier this week. There’s a popular meme making the rounds on Facebook detailing the accolades of Christopher Lee, ending with the line, “Now let’s see Chuck Norris top that.” I won’t discuss Lee’s absolutely badass life in great detail, but suffice to say he served in the military every year of WWII, was a highly ranked British officer, hunted Nazi war criminals, and was knighted for his contributions to the arts. This is about Christopher Lee the performer, a man born 93 years ago who had 281 IMDb credited roles and was probably the greatest screen villain in history.

Warner Brothers
Release Date: December 17, 2014

In what I like to call a “see it while you still can” style of reviewing movies before they leave theaters, I finally got around to catching Peter Jackson’s final film in the The Hobbit trilogy: The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.

And honestly, I can say that if you loved the Lord of the Rings movies of Jackson’s, then you might indeed wanna catch this before it leaves theaters. And you need not worry if you skipped the second movie in the trilogy, The Desolation of Smaug, or even the first movie, An Unexpected Journey, at this point. But I would never recommend a fan of the original book to ever see this particular film. The first two…sure…but this one, not so much. It’s complicated. Let me explain.

Child Suspended For Using ‘The One Ring’ From ‘The Hobbit’

The Hobbit Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins with One Ring and Sting

Gandalf the Grey once warned Bilbo Baggins that use of magic rings is dangerous. That is a lesson that one fourth-grade boy in Texas is learning after he received a suspension from his elementary school for allegedly threatening another student with “The One Ring,” the magical object made famous in the The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings books by J.R.R. Tolkien, which have been made into two film trilogies by Peter Jackson. Apparently, the boy recently saw Jackson’s The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies and his imagination was kicked into overdrive.

The 9-year-old boy’s father, Jason Steward, took his son’s story to the local paper and its since gone viral. Apparently, the school boy told a classmate after bringing a ring to school that it was indeed “The Ring of Power” — like the One Ring to rule them all that Bilbo uses in the movies — and that he could use it to make the classmate disappear.
