I have never defined myself by whom I slept with, but I know others have and would.
I have never understood the distinction of "primary" partner. Does that imply we have secondary and tertiary partners, too? Can my primary partner be my sister or child or best friend, or does it have to be someone I am having sex with?
Jack's father, Dan, will always be my partner because we share Jack. Dan is the best father and the most wonderful man I've known. Just because our »

Doctor Who exists to scare children. It introduces them to Horror in a way that can prepare them for the increased intensity and gore of adult films, while its limited budget and family viewing constraints also mean it has to get under your skin in more creative ways. This list is not intended as anything remotely definitive, more a collection of fifty scary moments, scenes, and ideas that the show has given us over the years. There are obviously hundreds more out there, and a Comments Thread waiting for your suggestions. We begin at the beginning, but not necessarily in that order.

Following an unsettling twenty-five minutes of investigation, torture and kidnap, our favourite family show was born. The Doctor decides schoolteachers Ian and Barbara have »

Blumhouse has found a kid to turn all demonically killer for their new terror tale Incarnate as the child actor from Fox's horrendous show "Touch," David Mazouz, is set to do a lot more than just count things with Kiefer Sutherland.
Deadline reports that Mazouz has booked a lead role in director Brad Peyton’s thriller Incarnate to play a boy found by an unconventional exorcist (Aaron Eckhart) who is possessed by a demon from the man’s past.
Catalina Sandino Moreno also stars. The movie begins production this month in Los Angeles.
The plot focuses on an unconventional exorcist who can tap into the subconscious of the possessed; he meets his match when a 9-year-old boy is possessed by a demon from his past.

The seventh edition of the Abu Dhabi Film Festival has announced winners of its Black Pearl Awards, with Chinese helmer Jia Zhangke’s “A Touch of Sin” scoring the top nod for best narrative feature.
“Touch of Sin,” which is based on true stories, mixes Jia’s signature docu-fiction style with Tarantino-esque moments and provides a hard-hitting vision of contempo China slowly consumed by violence. “Sin” won the $100,000 that goes with the top Adu Dhabi honors. Pic had been well received at Cannes, where it scored the screenplay prize.
Iraqi-Dutch director Mohamed Jabarah Al-daradji’s drama “In the Sands of Babylon,” about the brutality of Saddam Hussein’s genocide, won the prize for best narrative film from the Arab world, worth $50,000. The Special Jury Award, also worth $50,000, went to Kurdish director Hiner Saleem’s surreal Kurdistan-set Western “My Sweet Pepper Land.”

Belle director and stars discuss their frustration with women’s portrayal in the media and both new opportunities and ongoing challenges for black actors.
After Belle’s standing ovation at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival, Screen sat down with director Amma Asante and stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Sam Reid to discuss the period-drama’s strong message about female agency.
“Belle is as much about gender as it is about status and class,” acknowledges director Asante.
“These are the subjects that interest me as a filmmaker. There’s still a need to talk about them and throw them out there.”
Inspired by the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle (played by Touch star Mbatha-Raw), Asante’s sophomore feature charts the trials and tribulations of the illegitimate mixed race daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral in late 18th Century England.
The Toronto premiere, picked up by Fox Searchlight for most of the world, is set against »

Scheduled for a May 2014 release, the film was shown at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival to positive reviews.
Justin Chang (Variety): “The pleasures of Jane Austen and the horrors of the British slave trade make a surprisingly elegant fit in Amma Asante’s handsome period piece.” John Oursler (Sound on Sight): “Amma Asante’s Belle, a new entrant in the genre, strikes all the right notes.” John DeFore (The Hollywood Reporter): “Moviegoers should respond well when Fox Searchlight brings it to theaters next spring.”
I can’t wait to see this. Being a fan of period-piece dramas, Belle looks to be the perfect blend of courage, love and history.

"Castle" will welcome a "24" alum to the show in an upcoming episode of Season 6. Annie Wersching, best known for playing Agent Renee Walker on the action drama, will guest star as a potential suspect investigated by the NYPD.
According to a report from TVLine, Wersching will play the role of Dr. Kelly Nieman. She is an elite cosmetic surgeon whose connection to a murder victim draws the attention of Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion), Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) and the other detectives. Is she a killer?
Wersching's character worked alongside Kiefer Sutherland's Jack Bauer in the final two seasons of (the original run of) "24." She met an unfortunate death before the finale though. Since then, the actress has appeared in "Body of Proof," "Touch," "Revolution" and more.
"Castle" airs Mondays at 10 p.m. on ABC. No date for Wersching's appearance has been announced yet.
24‘s erstwhile Agent Renee Walker is making time for Castle.

A Touch of Sin is an anomaly for Jia Zhangke. Or at least it feels like it. Known for his unique melding of documentary and fiction, observing China's transformation with a critical eye and nostalgia, here he bases the film on four different recent news flashes. The first half tells of gritty, violent, senseless killing sprees, the second half turns a little giddy in its style with dramatic shifts. The fact that they are based on real events adds another layer to this sprawling, ambitious film. Interesting to note that Jia's version of real life events veer dangerously toward glossy fiction. I had the privilege of talking to him on the phone while he was in town for this year's New York Film Festival.Twitch: First...

Fresh off his stint on Fox’s Kiefer Sutherland drama Touch, one-time Heroes creator Tim Kring has just sold a new show to the CW, Deadline reports. Exp centers around a foreign designer drug that makes users "faster, smarter, stronger and better in every way" – basically turning people into a Kanye song. It also explores what happens when the drug is "trafficked illegally into American high schools, weaving a morally and socially complex web that entangles politicians, law enforcement and teenagers looking for an edge in an ever-competitive and fast-paced world.” While that sounds more like the plot to a kiddie House of Cards, we trust the man behind Heroes to aptly deal with enhanced teenagers. »
