Breaking Bad Great Debate: How Did Our Predictions Hold Up?

Breaking Bad is over. Walter White's fate is sealed. But that doesn't mean Katey and Sean can't argue over the show one last time

Will Walter White Die At The End Of Breaking Bad? The Great Debate

Just one episode of Breaking Bad to go, and all we know about the final episode "Felina" is… basically nothing. But that won't keep Katey and Sean from trying to guess ahead anyway. Today we're focusing on the fate of our main character, the man who started it all, Walter White.

Will Jesse Die On Breaking Bad? The Great Debate

Walter White is back in Albuquerque, armed with a machine gun and ricin. Most of us guess that both are intended for the gang of neo-Nazis who have Jesse imprisoned, and maybe for Lydia. But none of that determines the fate of the show's second-most important character, Jesse. I cannot imagine a Breaking Bad that ends with Jesse dying-- it conflicts with everything I believe about the morality of the show. You think Jesse HAS to die

Should Kevin Smith Work With Ben Affleck On Batman?

Since Ben Affleck was announced as the new Batman last Thursday, we've been talking about it… a lot. But before we leave the topic behind and go back to speculating about the rest of the superhero universe, we had to deal with the wild suggestion that Sean made to the entire staff a few days back. Now that Ben Affleck is Batman… he should bring his old buddy Kevin Smith along with him

The Cornetto Trilogy Golden Mile, Day 7: Is Edgar Wright A Great Director?

A great director is only as great as the person defending him. There are people who claim that Orson Welles is overrated, that Martin Scorsese hasn't made a good movie since Raging Bull … and people who say that Neveldine & Taylor are unheralded heroes and Michael Bay is the best living director. Deciding a director is "great" is a sure way to start an argument-- so that's exactly what we decided to do

Guardians Of The Galaxy Amazes Comic-Con's Hall H With Full Cast And First Footage

Who is The Collector? Oh, just an enormously powerful, billions of years-old being who can see the future and has a giant collection of priceless artifacts from across the galaxy-- hence the name. He also tends to tangle with the Avengers, at once point in the comics even forcing Iron Man to work on his side

How Christopher Nolan's Batman Could Still Be Part Of Justice League

It's been clear since the final moments of The Dark Knight Rises that Bale's Bruce Wayne was done with Gotham and super heroics in general, and though Man of Steel made reference to Wayne Industries, it had no explicit ties to Nolan's version of the Dark Knight. Henry Cavill is a new Superman, so he was getting a new Batman in the future… right?

Why The Hell Didn't You See White House Down?

Katey and Sean-- who have already, full disclosure, declared their love for the movie in front of the actual White House-- try to figure it out below. Do we blame Olympus Has Fallen? The Heat? Is it all Channing Tatum's fault? Help us solve the mystery

Star Trek Into Darkness: Was The Mystery Box Worth It?

Abrams is famous for his "Mystery Box" approach to storytelling, the idea being that it's better not to know what you're getting before walking into a movie. And though there are surprises in Star Trek Into Darkness that you probably won't know in advance, there are also parts of the film that Abrams went to a lot of effort to keep secret… and don't seem to matter all that much when you know them

Thor 2 Trailer In Depth: Malekith's Ship, Loki's Prison, And Asgardian Mysteries

The best way to sort through these mysteries is to go through the trailer step by step and find all the best moments. Join us as we pick through the most interesting screenshots from the new trailer, and try to figure out where this latest journey to Asgard is going to lead us.

Why You Should Rethink The Fast & Furious Franchise

Katey, I was most surprised to find that the second trailer to completely blow me away (after the Iron Man 3 spot, which was fantastic) was the trailer for Fast and the Furious 6. That series has completely shifted gears -- pun intended -- from the dregs of Tokyo Drift and the bland fourth installment. Fast Five put it back on the right track, and I'm not ashamed to say that I'm genuinely looking forward to a F&F sequel. Are you with me?

Is J.J. Abrams The Right Guy For Star Wars: Episode VII?

A cursory scan of Twitter revealed more of a schism in the sci-fi fanbase than we would have expected. Abrams, after all, is the guy who helped launch “Lost,” reboot Star Trek and idolize Steven Spielberg in the largely supported Super 8. He’s the perfect guy for this new gig … right?

Is A Zack Snyder Star Wars Movie A Good Idea?

It was the news we had been waiting for, but not the news we were expecting to get. After months of speculation about who might direct the Star Wars Episode VII that Disney and Lucasfilm have been promising for months, word came down that Man of Steel and 300's Zack Snyder was directing a Star Wars movie

Star Trek Into Darkness Trailer References Wrath Of Khan, But Why?

Around here we're more than a little sick of the rumor about Khan being the main villain in Star Trek Into Darkness, if only because it's so obvious that J.J Abrams and company have no interest in telling us, one way or another. Benedict Cumberbatch's bad guy character has been named as John Harrison, and we may as well take that at face value

Golden Globe Nomination Surprises: What Does It All Mean?

To go over the biggest surprises from this morning's announcement, Katey and Sean got together to go over their own reactions, figure out if this "Nicole Kidman in The Paperboy" thing is really happening, and wonder if the fact that the Globes went so crazy for Django Unchained could mean stronger Oscar chances than expected. Read below and let us know your own thoughts in the comments!

SAG Award Surprises: What Can We Learn From These Weird Nominations?

This morning the Screen Actors Guild announced their nominees for the best performances of the year, and threw in more than a few surprises. Nicole Kidman for The Paperboy? Javier Bardem for Skyfall? Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for Best Ensemble? In the world of people who aim to predict the Academy Awards, these nods raised a lot of questions

Are Anne Hathaway's Oscar Dreams Already Over?

From the moment Les Miserables first screened for critics, nearly everyone seemed content to declare the Best Supporting Actress race over, with Anne Hathaway's performance as Fantine so powerful she could easily walk away with every award there was. Then neither the NYFCC or the NBR chose her for their awards, going with Lincoln's Sally Field and Compliance's Ann Dowd, respectively

Is Joseph Gordon-Levitt Playing Batman In Justice League A Good Idea?

It's just a rumor for now, but a completely fascinating one, and one that opens up all kinds of strange possibilities for the story a Justice League movie would tell. The biggest hurdle, of course, is that Gordon-Levitt isn't Bruce Wayne, and would be a tie-in to Nolan's universe in which, of course, Christian Bale is Bruce Wayne. Would a Justice League really do away with Bruce Wayne entirely and stick with a character Nolan invented for his third Batman film?

Great Debate: Who Should Direct Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes?

We have no say in who will get the job, of course, but that doesn't mean we won't chime in anyway. Below Sean and I discuss who we think ought to get the Rise job, whether the studio's rush will doom the film regardless, and whether we're interested in seeing another Apes film without Wyatt on board

Toronto Film Festival Wrap-Up: The Good, The Bad, And The Best Oscar Bets

The Toronto Film Festival technically doesn't wrap up until Sunday, when award winners will be announced (including the usually important Audience Award) and the crowds will recede from downtown Toronto for another year. But Team Cinema Blend has already left the premises, with dozens of movies and a handful interviews under our belts
