Jiro Horikoshi is an aeronautical engineer whose childhood was filled with dreams about becoming a pilot. His poor vision meant that he would never realise his ambition, but he is encouraged to keep up his passion by Italian plane designer Caproni. Resolving to design aircrafts instead of fly them, Jiro studies the art at university, during which time he meets an attractive young woman named Naoko. Their relationship was born out of the dangerous circumstances of the Great Kanto Earthquake, throughout which they helped one another off a fast moving train. As their life together progresses, Naoko falls ill and Jiro struggles to bring in a regular income. He must succeed in the challenge of building the most exquisitely beautiful aeroplane in the world in order to get back on his feet, as his career could be the only thing he has left.
'The Wind Rises' is romantic, heart-wrenching animated adventure directed and written by the Oscar winning Hayao Miyazaki ('Spirited Away', 'Princess Mononoke', 'Howl's Moving Castle'). This Japanese drama, loosely based on Tatsuo Hori's 1936 short story 'The Wind Has Risen', features the voices of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Emily Blunt and Stanley Tucci in the English version. It is due for release in the UK on May 9th 2014.
When Jiro Horikoshi was a young boy, all he ever dreamed about was flying planes - at least he did until one night he came across Italian plane designer Caproni in one of his dreams, who subsequently told him that his poor vision means he'll never be a pilot. Jiro instead resolves to take up aeronautical engineering and design aircrafts himself . While at university, he meets a young woman named Naoko who he helps off a train during the Great Kanto Earthquake and the pair become close. His life begins to spiral, however, with his work projects becoming few and far between and Naoko's health deteriorating. But will Jiro finally realise his dream and build an aircraft of pure beauty? Or will his dream come crashing to the ground?

Was Derek Hough's dance with Shawn Johnson in Tuesday night's "Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars" finale his last one? A video posted before said dance has hinted, rather heavily we might add, that it is.
Derek Hough said that winning the "All-Star" season would have been a "perfect ending," MSN's The Clicker reported. "I can't say right now," he told TODAY on the post-show press line last night. "I was shocked at how I reacted and was sort of overwhelmed. I could barely speak to be honest. All the memories of the show, the people I've met and how amazing this family is (overwhelmed me.) I couldn't describe the feeling," he added. But what will he do you might ask, well, in the more cryptic part of his little speech, he shed very little light on that. "There is so much more I want to do," he said. "It's just about (finding) the next chapter." And perhaps even more cryptically, he said,"I will always want to be a part of the show in some way." Hmm.
Hough seems to have reached a point where he's achieved everything he can on the show, where he is currently a three-time champion with Brook Burke, Nicole Scherzinger, and Jennifer Grey. He can sing, dance and act, so we're pretty sure whatever he does, he'll be a hit.
This laughable made-for-TV thriller has a pedestrian Rob Lowe being terrorized by teenagers he busts for breaking into his car. Outrage is unbelievable from the first scene, but it just keeps getting worse and worse. Why do these rich kids (up for minor juvenile offenses and facing virtually nothing in the way of sentence) risk everything just to goad this poor guy into going insane?

Ignoring the outrageous jingoism for a minute, it should be noted that the movie does have plenty of forward momentum, starting from the moment when a bunch of Wyoming high schoolers (all '80s A- and B-list Brat Packers) look out their classroom window and see a huge number of paratroopers dropping into town. The soldiers who don't speak Russian speak Spanish. It seems that the Soviets have made a successful nuclear first strike (hey, that's cheating!) and have joined forces with ominously swarthy Cuban and Nicaraguan troops to storm a suddenly crippled America. The kids don't know all of this yet, though. All they know is that one of the soldiers has murdered their teacher right in front of them. Godless Commies!

And thus the trilogy comes to a sweaty, silly end, with this remake of, believe it or not, 1943's I Walked with a Zombie. Here we have Jennifer Grey, still sporting the same hairdo from Ferris Bueller after all these years, as a disgraced medical doctor who, out of desperation, takes a job in Jamaica as a personal physician to a wealthy tycoon (Craig Sheffer) and his mysteriously sickly brother (Daniel Lapaine). What follows is -- you guessed it -- a ridiculous swirl into the world of voodoo done up the way only Hollywood can.

And so this straight-to-DVD-after-five-years-on-the-shelf flick would be dismissed as a pale imitation of In the Company of Men, if only it weren't written and directed by a woman, Allison Burnett. And not only is she a woman, she's the very woman who wrote both Bloodsport III: Forced to Fight and Autumn in New York!*

After colliding head-on with another car in 1987, actor Matthew Broderick has been forgiven by the family of the two people killed in the crash.
Actor Matthew Broderick has been forgiven by the family of the mother and daughter he accidentally killed in a car crash. 28-year-old Anna Gallagher and her 63-year-old mother, Margret Doherty, were killed on 5th August, 1987, when Broderick's car collided head-on into theirs.
The accident took place after the filming of 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off', when Broderick and co-star Jennifer Grey were secretly dating. While on holiday in Northern Ireland, Broderick crossed into the wrong lane, killing the drivers of the other car instantly. Broderick and Grey both survived, with Grey only suffering minor injuries and Broderick ending up in hospital for several weeks.
