For all the high falutin', critically acclaimed shows on HBO, the network isn't above shoveling out lesser fare, and "True Blood" continues to be the odd man out in their lineup. For this writer, it's a pure guilty, trashy pleasure, but even that wasn't enough to make sitting through season 4 worth it. Dreadfully awful on nearly every level, the big mistake was turning Alexander Skarsgard's Eric into simpering, emotional mess for the majority of the season and everything else followed from there, with none of the cast able to fill out the humorous, wicked void his character left behind.

"This is parkour. Internet sensation of 2004," Jim Halpert said in a great cold open from "The Office"....two seasons ago. But it seems Hollywood never knows an idea it can't try and revive and so the very brief street fighting/martial arts/whatever thing that was interesting for about two seconds nearly a decade ago, is now gonna have a new face to try and make it popular again.

After breaking out with his acting debut in "After School," Ezra Miller reaffirmed his talent to the film world last year with Lynne Ramsey's "We Need To Talk About Kevin" where he went toe-to-toe with Tilda Swinton. While he was briefly linked to the failed blockbuster "Akira" project, Miller continues to make interesting choices, now lining up a starring role in an adaptation of Gustave Flaubert's "Madame Bovary" opposite Mia Wasikowska, with Paul Giamatti also confirmed.

Hong, the lead character in “Dragon Eyes,” might as well be a Man Without A Name when he wanders into the small town of St. Jude. He seeks a second chance, an opportunity to atone for past violent misdeeds seen in fuzzy flashback. It doesn’t take long for the viewer to realize this means a lot of people are about to be kicked in the face. One of the marquee titles from After Dark Action -- the new action imprint from Dark Castle and After Dark -- “Dragon Eyes” at least delivers on this aspect.

" 'Prometheus' originated from a very simple question that haunted me after the first 'Alien,' and no one answered in subsequent 'Alien' films: who was the Space Jockey—the big guy in the seat? We didn’t know if it was going to be a sequel or a prequel. I think you might not even argue it’s a prequel because it moves so far away from the original," Ridley Scott recently wrote in Newsweek, adding another puzzle piece to the movie. And as the continuing promotional train for "Prometheus" keeps chugging along, we're seeing more and more of what this not-a-prequel-exactly will be offering.

These days, after "Lord of the Rings" and "Game Of Thrones," fantasy isn't just big business, but it can also be an critically acclaimed awards favorite, picking up Oscars and Emmys by the handful. As such, it's easy to forget that prior to the 1980s, the genre barely existed on screen, with animated takes on Tolkein's works the only really significant pictures in the genre. But in 1977, "Star Wars," a film that owed as much to high fantasy as to science-fiction, became the biggest hit in history, and that opened the door to all kinds of new fantasy worlds.
