Which one of the HBO finest is ready to step forward and bewitch the public with a new and intriguing season five? You guessed right…we are talking about “ True blood”.
The new season will start on June 10 and until then the sneak previews released by the producers surely made the fans get the chills of expectation. It comes as no surprise that the critics were a bit skeptic about how will the show play next considering that the vampire movie frenzy is no longer what it was 4 years ago.
What should we expect?
Fans are surely anxious to find out more about the resurrection of King Russell, the conclusion of Sookie’s need to make a choice between Bill and Eric and why not the next hot sex scenes and thrilling drama that made the show famous.
In case you haven’t seen the movie The Hunger Games maybe it’s time you did. One of the reasons is that it comes with one of the hottest heroines of our days, Jennifer Lawrence.
With her arrow and bow she brings a lot of energy to the movie that has been rarely seen on the big screens.

Her character splits an apple or nails a squirrel from 100 yards. No matter how much all this reminds of gladiators, you can be sure that you will also find a lot of compassion in the movie. Because of her acting, the movie is expected to bring huge box-office numbers, maybe even more than Twilight. As a result the movie studios may begin to have a different view on female action stars.
There is a lot that you may have heard about the movie John Carter. It is filled with visual effects and a lot of other production values. Naturally we shouldn’t forget about the story material either.
Since it is such a great entertainment, it may be just what Taylor Kitsch needed to become a star. The movie has been created based on a series of books and it is said that it is a pretty good adaptation even if it comes up with some elements on its own.

Since the movie is filled with so many different elements, at some point it all becomes overwhelming and the viewers could lose track of all the characters.
The main character, John Carter is faced with a family tragedy and because of this he loses control over himself and becomes something like an animal.
Each year there are some movies that are more than anticipated by the fans of cinema, and this year doesn’t lack such movies either.
1. Red Tails
In case you would like to see a good movie in January, you should go for this one. It is true that the same topic has been approached by other movies as well, but this one seems to be different.
2. This Means War
In case you would like to see a truly exciting movie, this is the one. In case you don’t know what the movie is like, consider something like Spy vs. Spy.
3. The Hunger Games
In case you like fantasy movies, then for sure you will love this one. It is said to be better than Harry Potter and Twilight, and although people have only seen the trailers, they are more than excited about the movie hitting the theaters.
Each year there are some movies that rock the world, and at the beginning of the year we can make some predictions regarding the top movies of the next year. In case you would know which movies to keep an eye out for this year, here are some that you might like.
1. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
The only person that could have finished the movie is the producer who has been behind the other series of J. R. R. Tolkien, Lord of the Rings. This will be a two part movie that presents a lot younger Bilbo Baggins. There are some familiar faces that we will see, such as Cate Blanchet, Ian McKellen, Orlando Bloom and Elijah Wood.
When considering to stay home for an evening and watch a World War II movie on direct tv, most men would probably regard that as an entertaining way to spend some free time. Their wives and girlfriends, however, may think they can find better things to do with their significant others than watching battle scenes and puffed-up egos all night.
Below is a list of some of the best movies in the genre which may heartily appeal to both genders. Some of them are well known classics that deserve revisiting. Others may be hidden gems to some people, just waiting for discovery.
- Schindler’s List needs little commentary. Experience it again.
- The Bridge on the River Kwai is an oldie but goodie. It won seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture in 1957. British POWs imprisoned by the Japanese are ordered to build a bridge. A battle of wills ensues, and both the British and the Japanese colonels show signs of madness. It’s an interesting commentary on war and human nature.
The producers of Felicity and Lost have come up with a new twist to fairytales through the new show debuting on ABC, Once Upon a Time. As an answer, NBC also came up with something of the sort. The makers of Angel Go Criminal and Buffy the Vampire Slayer have come up with the series Grimm.
Both of the series address the battle of good and bad in the modern times. The main point of Grimm is to create a crime and fairytale kind of story. On the other hand, in Once Upon a Time the drama starts when the Evil Queen curses Snow White, Prince Charming and their daughter along with other members of the world so that they won’t have a happy ending.

In the first episode of Grimm, Nick Burkhart who is a detective finds out that he has an ancestry of criminal profilers that have the ability to see fairytale villains through their masks of regular people.
After the success of Vampire Diaries, there has been another series released that also has as a central topic the supernatural, entitled The Secret Circle. The plot of the new show includes teen heroines that also have a connection with that mythical world, and so CW hopes that through presenting two series belonging to the same niche, it will be able to engage all those people who like things of this sort, who are going to watch the series week after week.

There are a lot of people who like the new series because of Gale Harold who plays the role of Charles in the series, the father of one of the teens that is part of the circle of witches. The plot is very interesting, and everything starts with him setting on fire the house of the mother of the main character. He has done so, so that the little orphan girl would live with her grandmother and so that she would meet the others to complete the circle.
The Emmys are always a big thing, and even in this year programs and individual achievements have been awarded at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.

In this category the nominees have been Friday Night Lights, Dexter, Game of Thrones, Broadwalk Empire, The Good Wife and Mad Men. Can you guess which one of them won? Mad Men of course.

Let’s not forget about the individual actors either, and let’s take for example the lead actresses in case of drama series. The nominees in this case have been Elisabeth Moss, actress of Mad Men, Connie Britton from Friday Night Lights, Mariska Hargitay of Law and Order: SVU, Mireille Enos from The Killing, Julianna Margulies of The Good Wife, and Kathy Bates of Harry’s Law. In this case the happy winner has been Julianna Margulies.
With the last Harry Potter movie hitting the theaters, there is a lot of nostalgia that one will never be able to watch such a magnificent crew come together to perform their magic.
The premier of The Deathly Hallows Part 2 was graced by the entire crew of the movie, the author J.K. Rowling and many other prominent celebrities.
Emma hosted the event dressed in a beautiful Oscar de la Renta tulle gown. The sleeveless gown had an embroidered bodice and a full skirt. The author too walked the red carpet in an Oscar creation and looked resplendent in a green silk gown. It had a sweetheart neckline and beautiful pink carnation motif. The young men from the cast too looked dapper in their finery.
