Smallville comes to an end, Clark Kent finally becomes Superman

By: Array

Superman is something very important to me, as a child I grew up with the Christopher Reeve movies and since then have been a big fan of anything Superman. I've watched Smallville for ten years now and have enjoyed the show, it has evolved into something so much better than the Freak of the Week and with introductions with actors such as the great Cassidy Freeman as Tess and Justin Hartley as Oliver, the show has really started to shine.

Out of season 7 came the departure of Alfred Gough and Miles Millar departed the show and their rule of "no tights, no flight" left too. In came maturity and an ever-growing story of Clark finally meeting his destiny of becoming Superman. At this time season greats such as Michael Rosenbaum who plays (in my opinion) the best Lex Luthor in the Superman mythos left, but, this is the big thing - he comes back for the Series Finale tomorrow night.

Boxee Box updates to v1.1, includes improved browser, playback controls and other goodies

By: Array

Boxee Box has evolved, the strange yet unique looking media player has just stepped into v1.1 software and is looking better than ever. The v1.1 update is rolling out over the next few days and includes a mammoth amount of fies and new features. First of all we have the huge browser update which now includes favorites, history and a better UI which now shows off more of the picture and includes more options, plus expanded HTML5 capabilities that should fix login problems for HBO Go.

 

TweakTown image news/1/9/19672_62_boxee_box_updates_to_v1_1_includes_improved_browser_playback_controls_and_other_goodies.jpg

 

The on-screen display has been tweaked and has a new seek bar for more precise FF/Rewind support as well as support for customized local metadata and NFO files (!), a new MLB.tv app and two new content partners. Volume controls have been moved and this is (according to Boxee) to put the Boxee Box in line with Blu-ray players that don't include volume adjustment. The update should be pushed out automatically, but if you are impatient and want it now, now, now then you can have a look on the Boxee Box forums.

 

Final Destination 5 official trailer

By: Array

Fan of the Final Destination films? Look no further than the official trailer to the upcoming Final Destination 5. The fifth outing in the Final Destination series is set around a massive bridge collapse disaster, which in some parts has some really awful CG. But, like the Saw series - you don't watch it for special effects or realism in script, etc. You watch these movies for popcorn fun! Take a look at the trailer:

Terminator 5 coming? Arnold Schwarzenneger is back, as he promised in Terminator 2 - directed by Fast Five director, Justin Lin?

By: Array

Terminator 5 is being shopped around in Hollywood right now, the package includes Arnold Schwarzenegger, Justin Lin directing and comes in at a sweet minimum of $25 million up-front against a purchase price near $36 million - hold on while I pull my credit card out.

Lin is quite the director now which is putting him in a very good position to lead Arnold in another Terminator movie with his Fast Five international grosses being huge and the expectations of the strong domestic opening on Friday has him being targeted (by Skynet?) to direct this movie. Shouldn't be long until we have some definite news on this!

Sharp launch new 70-inch LCD HDTV, makes your junk feel small

By: Array

Sharp's unique press conference "Spectacularge" announced its new 70-inch LC-70LE732U is now the largest LCD HDTV on the market. The screen is powered by Quattron four color pixels, full LED backlighting, Netflix, CinemaNow, Vudu Apps and DLNA access just to name a few - but it does not include 3D.

 

TweakTown image news/1/9/19378_18_sharp_launch_new_70_inch_lcd_hdtv_makes_your_junk_feel_small.jpg

 

This will be solved with new models of 70-inch LCDs from Sharp that are reported to ship this summer. Price wise it's actually not too bad with an MSRP of $3799.
