Blood is a rover

Sean Garrity's crisply taut thriller Blood Pressure began its run at Cinematheque in February and has since played 25 cinemas in 21 cities across Canada, including a seven-week run in Toronto. Garrity proudly announces: "It ends as it began," with a two-day return to Cinematheque July 5 and 6 at 7 p.m.

National Geographic Found

Showcasing photos from its extensive archive in celebration of its 125th anniversary, National Geographic Found -- natgeofound.tumblr.com -- is a fascinating look at the cultures and moments that have helped craft the magazine's rich history. While some of these photos have been published before, many of the images have rarely been seen by the public.

More Morse, younger Morse

Long before there was an Inspector Morse, there was a headstrong young rookie named Const. Morse, who was fed up with the bureaucratic nonsense that bogs down police work and considered turning in his resignation. One intriguing murder, which only he could solve, changed his mind. Shaun Evans returns in four new Masterpiece Mystery! adventures (beginning Sunday, July 7, at 9 p.m. on PBS) that follow the investigative adventures of young Endeavour Morse.

Coming to a stage near you... some day.

Broadway producers, well aware that audiences will flock to shows with titles they're already familiar with, are developing a new wave of adaptations that include King Kong, From Here to Eternity, The Bridges of Madison County and the recently broadcast HBO Liberace film Behind the Candelabra. Kong, due in New York next year, has drawn oversized interest from fans eager to see a six-metre-high animatronic ape puppet. The stage version of the 1953 Oscar-winning film From Here to Eternity opens in London in October, followed by The Bridges of Madison County on Broadway next February.

EW mag names Shields novel to its Top 100

Entertainment Weekly's July 5 and 12 issue is a talker, with its 100 All-Time Greatest lists of movies, TV shows, albums and novels. There is even a Winnipeg connection, thanks to Carol Shields' 1993 novel The Stone Diaries being pegged No. 83 on the novel list. Two other CanLit staples make the grade: Rohinton Mistry's A Fine Balance is No. 55 and Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale is No. 29. EW's best novel of all time? Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy.
