Put yourself in this situation: Let’s say you’re a below-average male high school student. You’re scorned by your classmates, and to make things worse, you have to sit next to the most popular girl in the entire school every day, an arrangement that singles you out for all sorts of physical and mental abuse from her fans – both male and female – on an equally daily basis.

Now imagine that the only thing keeping you safe from an entire army of large mechanical rabbits that just invaded your school, hell-bent on your destruction, and the cadre of witches leading them, was a single fire witch who referred to you as her “princess,” and said fire witch is none other than the most popular girl in school.

Streaming Review: In The Loop banner

In The LoopIn The Loop
Netflix | Amazon | Hulu Plus | iTunes | Xbox Live
DVD | Blu-ray
Directed by Armando Iannucci
Starring Peter Capaldi, Tom Hollander, Chris Addison, Gina McKee, Mimi Kennedy, Anna Chlumsky, James Gandolfini
BBC Films
Originally Released: January 22, 2009

With the big announcement over the last week of Peter Capaldi turning out to be the next Doctor for Doctor Who, I thought it might be timely to take a look at some of the work he’s been well-known for. The series, The Thick Of It, showcases one his most iconic characters: Malcolm Tucker, the foul-mouthed spin doctor in the British Government.

The series spawned a movie called In The Loop, where the government crosses paths with the American government in the planning for invasion of a Middle Eastern country.

The story begins with the leaders of the respective nations already planning on progressing forward with a preemptive strike on a country, in a comic parody of historic political events during the post-9/11 era. While the leaders convene committees and meetings across the globe to push the case for conflict, other operatives behind the scenes work on efforts to stop the warmongering.

Redbox Sales Decline In Fourth Quarter As Netflix Rises

Redbox KioskRedbox, the company that operates DVD rental vending machine across the US, reported a decline in sales, according to the fourth quarter financial report by it’s parent company Coinstar (CSTR).

The company cited several reasons for the lower sales numbers, with the most prominently discussed reason being the new stipulation from movie studios to delay Redbox rentals of new DVDs until 28 days after they’ve been released. Essentially, this means when a new movie gets released to DVD, you can buy it through retail stores, but you cannot rent it for almost a month.

Netflix Unveils Streaming-Only Option, Raises Prices On Other Plans

You’ve wanted it, and now you’ve got it: Netflix has announced their new streaming-only plan, for those of you who have no use for one or two DVDs out at a time, and are only interested in watching movies and TV shows directly on your computer, gaming console, or various other streaming options.

Netflix states that the new plan will cost you $7.99 a month, which is a dollar less than what the next plan up — one DVD out at a time along with the instant streaming — used to be.

This of course brings us to the next announcement Netflix made, which is increases to all of their prices. Due to the growing quantity of movie and TV show offerings that are streamed, the company will add $1 to the cost of their $8.99 and $13.99 plans. All plans after that will see multi-dollar increases in prices, anywhere from $3 to $8 more than they once were.

ScreenTribe Looks To Revolutionize TV and Movies As A Social Platform
space
Vactor   |

ScreenTribeI’m a big fan of apps that let you share what you’re watching with all your social networks. Miso and GetGlue are the two that I use on a regular basis to let all my Twitter followers know when I’m watching the latest episode of Mad Men or the newest release at my local theater. Now, a newcomer has entered my social platforming orbit.

The service is called ScreenTribe and while it’s similar to the previous apps I mentioned, it also sets itself apart from the crowd in many ways.

Aside from allowing you to let everyone know what you’re watching, ScreenTribe also lets you compete with other users and earn physical prizes in the process. “Tuning in” to content earns players points that can be redeemed for real life rewards like gift cards, movie tickets, and non-profit charity donations. Users are also rewarded with badges when they complete special tasks like tuning in for the first time or watching a certain number of movies from one era.

TV Network Drama Gotcha Down? Watch The Oscars Online With Us!

82nd Oscars

For those who have not heard, there is some craziness going on between Cablevision and ABC in New York. A failure to reach an agreement has lead to the pulling of tonight’s airing of the 82nd Academy Awards, leaving many customers infuriated and nowhere to watch.

Apparently they are working hard to reach an agreement, and it would be surprising if someone didn’t compromise to get this done somehow before the Oscars air, but there are options in a worst-case-scenario situation!

For those of you currently in the midst of this ridiculous network elementary school whine-fest, such as our leaders, Empress Eve and Dave3, you can now watch the LIVE Oscars telecast free and streaming thanks to the kind people at AP. [UPDATED – AP didn’t start their streaming for some reason; we’ve updated the embed with one from Ustream.]

At the moment, you can watch the red carpet stuff going on, and it all should zip right into the ceremony when the action begins.

Walk your own carpet (of whichever color you wish) on over to the other side to watch the live stream right now. And many thanks to AP for stepping up while these massive companies run by toddlers throw Legos at each other.
