Netflix: Movies Expiring January 2015

In: Donovan, Movies

Don’t like the high expectations of New Years Eve? Planning on avoiding the huge parties and opting instead for a quiet night home in front of the television. If the idea, however, of watching Ryan Seacrest in Times Square nauseates you, spend the evening with Netflix.

Like clockwork every month, the streaming service pulls several titles from their library. A few of my favorites expiring January 1, 2015 include Titanic, You’ve Got Mail, Hitch, The Wedding Planner, Big Trouble In Little China, the original Can’t Buy Me Love and Red Dawn, Roman Holiday, Gladiator and The Breakfast Club.

If you still have the Christmas spirit, revisit Love, Actually one more time. That holiday classic is also getting the heave ho. Check out below all the titles receiving the axe. Weigh in afterward on which ones you’ll miss the most.

With a new album reportedly on the way, along with her return to The Voice for Season 8, and now this, it appears that Christina Aguilera is staging a huge comeback into the spotlight after giving birth to her second child. #welcomebackdiva

Deadline reports Aguilera is one of five producers working on a new dramedy for ABC Family. Inspired by Love, Actually, the series tentatively titled Hearts and Clubs will be set in the backdrop of Sin City. It follows a “group of Las Vegas entertainers as they fall in and out of love in the ultimate city of Sin.” According to the publication, the project was pursued by multiple projects. Aguilera’s fiance Matt Rutler is also one of the executive producers.

Sounds like a promising premise, doesn’t it? Fingers crossed it’s more like Love, Actually than Aguilera’s underwhelming Burlesque. What are your thoughts? Weigh in below.

Watch The Love Actually Sequel Trailer

In: Donovan, Movies

This year marks the tenth anniversary of the release of Love Actually. Though numerous attempts around the world have been filmed to recreate the special magic found in the original including Garry Marshall’s Valentine’s Day and New Years Eve, none have succeeded.

Naturally, when I read Love Actually 2, I was instantly intrigued and excited. Sadly though, it turned out to be just a fan-made trailer parody. With that being said, it’s an excellent one at that. This fanboy or fangirl masterfully compiles footage from the cast’s post-Actually work into a storyline, albeit far-fetched, but a storyline nonetheless.

It’s not easy incorporating scenes from Bad Santa, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, Taken, The King’s Speech, Mammia Mia, Mad Men, The Hobbit and more to craft a worthy sequel to Love Actually. Check out the wonderfully ridiculous clip below.

Thor Actually: The Romantic Comedy

In: Donovan, Movies

Hands down, this is the funniest thing Jimmy Kimmel has done in a while. It’s amazing how with a change of music and new voiceover, a brand new narrative for Thor: The Dark World is born. With Katrina and the Waves’ “Walking On Sunshine” blaring in the background, all of a sudden the Marvel superhero flick is a romantic comedy about Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) looking for love. Is it sad that I actually want to see this?

Check out the trailer for Thor Actually below. As a side note, Love Actually was released 10 years ago this month. Can you believe it’s been a decade? Holy balls, I’m old.

Not only does Rachel McAdams have a thing for romantic dramas, but for time traveling ones at that. In 2009, she fell for Eric Bana in The Time Traveler’s Wife and now it’s Domhnall Gleeson she’s smitten with in About Time which is scheduled to hit theaters November 1.

About Time is an upcoming British flick revolving around a young man (Gleeson) trying to change his past to have a better future. It comes from Richard Curtis who wrote Love Actually, Notting Hill and Four Weddings and a Funeral. If you like any of those films and Adam Sandler’s 50 First Dates, then you’ll love this one. Due to the time traveling aspect, Gleeson accidentally erases his own timeline and has to win over Rachel McAdams’ character over and over again.

I’m a huge fan of McAdams and romantic comedies, so naturally I’m checking this out. It looks like a lighthearted moving film. Check out the trailer below.

Nothing gets me more in the holiday spirit than watching a few of my favorite Christmas movies in the background while decorating our tree and wrapping gifts. It should come as no surprise that Love Actually is on that list of favorites. While watching the modern holiday classic for the umpteenth time, it dawned on me that the adorable kids who played Sam (Thomas Sangster) and Joanna (Olivia Olson) were probably young adults now. So naturally, I had to Google them to see what they were up to these days.

Sangster is now 22-years-old and Olson is 20. Both are still working in the entertainment industry and funny enough, the two worked together again since Love Actually. They reunited for Disney Channel’s animated series Phineas and Ferb where they both voiced characters. Before you see what other projects they’ve done, refresh your memory and watch a clip from the holiday movie below.

Speaking for myself, I love watching classic Christmas flicks during the holiday season. Whether it’s playing in the background while I decorate the tree or wrap presents, I have a roster of films I typically watch over and over at this time of year. I’m sure you do too. Everyone has a favorite Yuletide flick.

While there’s nothing cozier than watching Love, Actually cuddled up on the couch with your loved one, there’s something special about heading out to the theater and seeing it on the big screen. Especially when said theater is a classic heritage building. Plus, if you can help out those less fortunate it’s win-win all around.

HBO Releases Game of Thrones Season 3 Featurette

In: Matt, TV Shows

For anyone as obsessed with Game of Thrones as I am, this two minute video will most likely be the most exciting part of your day. While season 3 of GoT doesn’t air until March 31st, HBO has released a tiny featurette giving us a behind the scenes look at some of the locations and characters in the new season.

I couldn’t help but start drooling when I saw the extremely sexy Richard Madden, who plays Robb Stark. It’s also funny to hear Peter Dinklage when he drops his atrocious accent.

While the first two seasons were essentially an adaptation of the first two books in the series, many characters were purposely left out of season 2. You’ll be happy to know that the writers were merely saving them until they became more central to the plot.

Season 3 will cover about the first half of the 3rd book. The show’s creators have always said that their vision for their show was an adaptation of the series as a whole, not of the individual books. This allows them to move things around a bit in terms of timelines and locations to make more cohesive seasons.Fans of the books will also be excited to know that Meera and Jojen Reed will finally be appearing on the show. Jojen will be played by the adorable Thomas Sangster who some of you will remember as that little boy from Love Actually.
