Larry Hagman, JR Ewing Of TV’s ‘Dallas’, Dies At 81

Posted: 23 Nov 2012 10:26 PM PST

Larry Hagman

Larry Hagman, whose portrayal of JR Ewing, the alpha male raised to the highest art, the slick, cunning, evil, and ominously intimidating oil tycoon on the TV series Dallas who enthralled millions upon millions of viewers around the world, died on Friday from complications from throat cancer, according to The Chicago Tribune. He was 81.

Hagman certainly made his mark on American television, with two successful shows which were decidedly different genres. His portrayal of Major Anthony Nelson on the long-running sitcom I Dream of Jeannie was a success and the ridiculous premise of a bachelor who discovers a genie in a bottle (played by Barbara Eden) hit paydirt during a Vietnam War-weary nation looking for escapism in the 1960s [...]

Disney In Depth: 7 Trailer Parodies Of Marvel, Pixar, Muppets, Star Wars & Disney Films

Disney In Depth banner

As I have discussed on Disney In Depth recently, the purchase of three key film properties - Pixar, Marvel and Lucasfilm - that have further realized Disney's influence in the entertainment industry. Even the 2004 acquisition of The Muppets has forever changed the outlook for Jim Henson's most adored faces. All of these characters unite the geek community, even those who enjoy Disney. In this edition, I will share some popular YouTube videos that spoof Marvel Studios, Pixar, Muppet, Star Wars and "regular" Disney films by featuring some famous personalities from the whole Disney universe [...]

Comic Review: Ultimate Spider-Man Vol. 2 #17

Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #17

Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #17
Story by Brian Michael Bendis
Pencils/Inks by Pepe Larraz
Colors by Justin Ponsor
Marvel Comics
Release date: November 21, 2012
Cover Price: $2.99

When we rejoin our hero, things are not going well for Miles Morales in the Hydra/American War that was mostly contained to the Ultimates book during the 'Divided We Fall' storyline. In the mystery of publishing schedules, we get the contributions of All-New Spider-Man to the Battle of Wyoming a few weeks after we got the conclusion to the greater story proper in Ultimates #18. It was fun seeing Miles in the background of Ultimates #17 when the Battle of Wyoming starts in that book, especially since Miles had just recently "joined" the Ultimates when his school was cancelled after America started busting into different factions. At least this issue makes sense of his absence in Ultimates #18.

I'm worried. I'm worried that they brought Miles in too late to the greater Ultimate Universe plot to use him effectively. This April, Reed Richards destroyed Washington DC and the majority of the America's politicians. Meanwhile, Miles had yet to earn the web-shooters from Aunt May and we were still getting the Prowler storyline all wrapped up before we could jump into the Spider-Men crossover. There won't be a test, I'm just mentioning how the Ultimate titles were working earlier this year. The Ultimates were around, the Ultimate X-Men were around and Peter Parker's replacement was in the skies of New York, but never the three met until 'Divided We Fall,' and that's over now, with this, the most limp-wristed entry in the crossover event. SHIELD feels too big for Miles at this point and I don't feel the destruction of Washington DC in his storyline [...]

Written by David O. Russell
Starring Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro, Chris Tucker
The Weinstein Company
Rated R | 122 Minutes
Release Date: November 21, 2012

Written and directed by David O. Russell (The Fighter), Silver Linings Playbook is based on the 2008 novel by Matthew Quick and stars (Bradley Cooper) as Pat Solitano, a troubled man who has lost everything – his house, his job, and his wife.

After spending eight months in a Baltimore mental institution, Pat finds himself back in Philadelphia, living with his mother (Jacki Weaver) and father (Robert De Niro). Despite a restraining order, Pat is determined to remain positive, rebuild his life, and reunite with his estranged wife Nikki (Brea Bee).

Meanwhile, Pat's parents hope he'll get back on his feet and take part in the family's obsession with the Philadelphia Eagles. Things take an unexpected turn when he meets kindred crazy person Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), a young woman trying to cope with her husband's death by sleeping with everyone at her work.

Pat and Tiffany bond over their issues and idiosyncrasies, with 'crazy person' topics like the types of medication they've taken. Tiffany offers to help Pat reconnect with his wife, but only if he'll return the favor by doing something very important for her - be her partner in a freestyle dance competition [...]
