Game of Thrones season 4 kicks off tonight! Catch up now on iTunes!

HBO's Game of Thrones is back tonight with season 4 and that means the carnage and carnality factor of your TV viewing is about to shoot, dragon-like, through the stratosphere. Based on the second half of George R. R. Martin's A Storm of Swords it promises more violence, intrigue, sex, betrayal, nudity, and brutality than ever. But, no spoilers! You have to watch it yourself! If you haven't caught on Game of Thrones yet, that's easy to fix. iTunes has them all!

Captain America: The Winter Solider is in theaters now — catch up in iTunes or Netflix!

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a sequel to both Captain America: The First Avenger and The Avengers, and a quasi tie-in to ABC's ongoing Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D television series. It also riffs on Ed Brubaker's classic comic book arc of the same name and that it manages to weave all those threads together into a pretty entertaining movie is a testament to just how well Marvel/Disney has planned their cinematic universe. If you haven't watched the previous films and shows, however, you can still catch up on all of them via iTunes and a fair chunk via Netflix as well (depending on what country you live in, because, ugh.)

Stripped, the comics documentary, hits iTunes, earns all my love!

Calvin and Hobbes, Bloom County, Peanuts, Doonsbury, The Far Side — these were the works that helped inform much of my childhood and adult life. What they managed to capture in few panels and words resonated as deeply as books and speeches and song. They said funny things, important things, silly things, true things. They made me think and they made me feel. They were art in every sense of the word, and commentary and escapism. They've continued to be all that and more as print has faded and the web has provided an even larger, even more accessible platform. And Stripped, the incredible documentary by Dave Kellett and Frederick Schroeder that covers that transition, has collected the pioneers of the industry, of all generations, together for an unprecedented set of interviews, and a peek inside how and why it matters so much to so many of us. Check out the blurb below for all the details, then go grab it — and gift it if the mood strikes you! — on iTunes. It really deserves our support.

Review 10: Tombstone

Don, Matt, Guy, and Rene skin Tombstone and see what happens. That’s right, we’re throwing down on Wyatt and the Earp brothers, Doc Holiday and the Cowboys, the shoot out at the O.K Corral, and the vendetta that followed.

Ad hoc is our movie and entertainment show and this episode we're talking everything from Kevin Jarre’s enormous script to George P. Cosmatos’ alleged ghost direction for Kurt Russell to the themes of friendship shot throughout. With a stacked cast and absolutely killer dialog, was it a hell of a western-meets-action movie blend, or was it not no daisy at all? Find out!

iTunes vs. Ultraviolet: Are Apple-loving Veronica Mars fans entitled to their service of choice, or just entitled?

The Kickstarter-funded Veronica Mars movie landed not only in theaters, but on Ultraviolet digital streaming and on iTunes yesterday. For a Hollywood movie from a studio like Warner Brothers, that's... transcendent. But as much as it might have presaged a new era in entertainment, it also highlighted some massive ongoing problems. Mainly, the digital downloads offered to backers turned out not to be the iTunes codes some wanted but Ultraviolet streams instead. That caused a lot of confusion and more than a little anger.

Veronica Mars movie now live on iTunes!

It's not normal that a movie goes live on iTunes the same day it hits movie theaters but then Rob Thomas' Veronica Mars isn't exactly your normal movie. Not only does it reunite the cast of the original TV show, including Kristen Bell (House of Lies) but it received its backing on Kickstarter, the popular crowd-funding platform. Veronica Mars, if you're not familiar with it, was delightful — Buffy sans slayers. It lasted two and half seasons before it was cancelled and the movie's been a longtime coming. I backed the Kickstarter, bought tickets to the premier last night, and am download the digital version now. If you've been waiting for it as well, it's time to bring it on!
