The department is working on a draft proposal for internal consideration and has a formal proposal goal for February. Deaf groups say that they have been asking for deaf entertainment for several years. "With existing technology, there is no excuse for not providing captioning capability on in-flight entertainment," Howard Rosenblum, CEO of the National Association of the Deaf said according to USA Today. Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin proposed legislation to require airlines to make captions for the deaf and video descriptions for the blind when it comes to in-flight entertainment. His older brother Frank is deaf. "Americans who are deaf and hard of hearing continue to have difficulty accessing captioned versions of movies, videos and other entertainment content on an equal basis with their hearing peers," Rosenblum said. <br>Source:

Nicole Kidman backs Wang Jianlin's plans to build Chinese Hollywood

EDT, September 23, 2013 HOLLYWOOD Homeowners won't see an increase in their tax rate or fire fee in the coming fiscal year. Hollywood commissioners approved a $198 million budget on Monday that will keep the annual fire fee at $189 and the base tax rate at $744 per $100,000 of assessed value. The total tax rate, which includes voter-approved debt for major city improvements, is $784 per $100,000 of assessed value. Previous financial blunders led to a $38 million shortfall in Hollywood two years ago. After declaring financial urgency, the city relied on tax hikes, layoffs and pay cuts to help balance the budget. But things are starting to look up, city officials say. Hollywood will have $22.7 million in reserves $3.3 million short of its goal at the start of the fiscal year on Oct. <br>Source:,0,2957233.story

Movie review: The Frozen Ground (NC16)

That's what people all around the world were saying in April 2009 when a small band of Somali raiders hijacked the Maersk Alabama cargo ship in the Indian Ocean and held its crew for ransom, triggering a deadly standoff with U.S. Navy warships. Pirates hadn't captured an American vessel since the early 1800s, and the outcome hinged on the actions and decisions of a single blue-collar great site Everyman, a veteran merchant mariner named Capt. Richard Phillips. One of those people who thought it sounded like a Hollywood film happened to be Tom Hanks, soanow it is one. When Hanks signed on to star, the two-time Oscar winner also helped recruit director Paul Greengrass, who'd previously made a film about a true-life hijacking with the 9/11 movie United 93. <br>Source:,,20483133_20721928,00.html

There's some really nice chemistry between Cage and Hudgens. She looks so naturally sweet and vulnerable that she would elicit protective feelings from pretty much any dude.

Thats the conundrum faced in Insidious: Chapter 2, which comes upon a few quirky solutions and movie-ripoff scares before settling into a kind of coma. Director James Wan (The Conjuring) is a brand name in horror, and to his credit adds a gloss on several riffs from The Shining, The Exorcist and even the unsupernatural Psycho. But Insidious 2 eventually becomes only about whats frightening in those earlier movies and relegates its own scares to screechy jump cuts and pop-out-of-the-dark jolts. Patrick Wilson is again Josh Lambert, the husband and father whose trip into another realm to retrieve his sons spirit marked the conclusion to 2010s Insidious. Josh and his son Dalton have the ability to astral project into a place between life and death. Its filled with otherworldly spirits, including a ghoul who wants a healthy body to live in. In the previous film, the fiend was a frightening old woman; here we learn shes, well, something else. <br>Source:

The night before the game, the way he presented things that are going to happen in the game was really good, Cunningham said. I was really impressed with his talk to the team.

Movie review: Little to laugh about in dark comedy ‘The Family’

But dont trust the trailer. Drinking Buddies is better than that. Its a comedy in the classic sense: not something calculated to punch out a guffaw or two, but a careful movie focused on the language of affection: flirting, friendship (with benefits), narcissism, sex, commitment, and of course love. Our drinking buddies are Kate (Olivia Wilde) and Luke (Jake Johnson). Both work at a Chicago brewery; the former being the face and voice of the operation while the latter helps brew up the liquid bread. Together, our buddies are nearly insufferable bros. Outside of work, each has their own significant other, but on the job our buddies are inseparable. They can hardly talk to each other without getting entangled in jokes, playful touches, and the joys of beer. <br>Source:

When film came around, our stories were dictated by non-native people, so we had Italians playing Indians," he said, adding that he would like to now play an Italian mafioso in a movie. "But now we have this wave of aboriginal writers and storytellers." Aboriginal activists have long complained that the so-called Hollywood Indian neither mirrors Native American contemporary reality nor their historical past. Acclaimed Abenaki documentary filmmaker Alanis Obomsawin, who returned to the festival with "Hi-Ho Mistahey," said audiences are more open to real stories about natives.

While some conservatives see hypocrisy , Farrell says that an all-out war in Iraq under Bush, a Republican who was very unpopular in Hollywood, was a much bigger deal than potential missile strikes against Syria under the direction of Obama, a Democrat who drew millions for his campaigns from showbiz industry donors. PHOTOS: Top Celebrity Twitter Commentators Asner, 83, and Farrell, 74, both expressed extreme disappointment in Obama for advocating military action. "What he is talking about in Syria is a potential war crime," Farrell said. "It will be illegal, and if citizens are killed it certainly could be considered a war crime." Even if Obama presents irrefutable evidence that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad used poison gas against civilians, military action is still unwarranted, the two activists say. "This administration ought to insist that the international community charge [Assad] with a war crime and prosecute him, and in so doing Obama would be following the law instead of flaunting the law," Farrell said. "It's incredibly improper for the president to call for a strike. <br>Source:

Namely, the Hollywood angle has been deemphasized, in favor of a viral marketing angle.It's also lost the hashtag (although that's not yet reflected on the firm's bare-bones website ). "As we began getting pitched by more and more entrepreneurs, we learned that the Hollywood stuff was a very minor reason why they were interested in us," explains Parr. "What they really want is a team that understands that world, but also has deep experience in viral marketing and media." Parr believes he fills that "media" piece, thanks to his experience at Mashable. His fellow co-founders --Matt Schlicht and Mazy Kazerooni -- have deep experience in the viral marketing world, through past work at UStream and a newer startup that helps market young artists like Tyga and Lil Twist. No comment from Parr on the fundraising piece, but word is that not too many celebrities signed up -- leading DominateFund to hit up more traditional VC fund investors like funds-of-funds (which may be a blessing in disguise, since celebrity capital can be a bit higher-risk than that of institutional investors). <br>Source:

Musician makes his Hollywood debut

Yes I know this blog might sound a tad jaded and whatnot, but the truth is I'm just genuinely fed up of Hollywood being lazy and rehashing classic movies just for a quick and easy means of making money. Not to mention, more often than not their attempts at remakes, have usually been worse than the original. I mean lets have a look at a few: Friday 13th, The Fog, Halloween, A Nightmare On Elm Street, Conan The Barbarian, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Total Recall and so on (just to name a few) are pretty memorable and iconic in their own right yet Hollywood still feels the need to remake them in some form.
