Madness and the curse of centuries-old grotesqueries have rarely been as elegantly conveyed as A CURE FOR WELLNESS, an auspicious entry into the time-honored genre of the sane man trapped in an insane asylum – or in this case a Swiss Alps spa seemingly dedicated to the spiritual, and physical health of its decrepit well-healed clientele. Much like a funeral director with obsessive detail to make an unholy mess spic and span, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN and RING director Gore Verbinski has ensured that his institute resounds with old world, aristocratic class, all the better to hide the demonic suffering its delightfully […]Read On »

In Part 2 of Assignment X’s exclusive interview with TOMMY’S HONOUR director Jason Connery, the filmmaker talks about class differences, making present-day Scotland look as it did in the 1800s, and how the movie reflects his relationships with his own father and son. ASSIGNMENT X: How did you find all of your locations in present-day Scotland that you could make to look like late 1800s Scotland? JASON CONNERY: Well, there are a number of things. We shot the film in thirty-three days, and we had fifty locations. So the opening shot, where you’re flying along over the sea and then […]Read On »

A father who is a master craftsman is eager to pass his wisdom on to his eldest son. However, the son, rather than follow in his father’s footsteps, longs to use what the father makes to blaze his own path. In TOMMY’S HONOUR, this classic tale of family tension in Scotland is fact-based. The film won the BAFTA Scotland Award for Best Feature Film. Thomas “Old Tom” Morris, played in the film by Peter Mullan, designed fifty classic golf courses during his lifetime (1821-1908), as well as being a master maker of golf clubs. His son Tommy Morris, played by […]Read On »

Hey there, dorks. In this week’s episode, in honor of baseball season starting last week, we are going to share our top 3 favorite sports movies, but don’t worry, Smith will still find a way to mention the fact that he’s reading “War and Peace.” In the second half of the show, we unveil a new segment, Dorking Out Debates. What do we watch first when a movie remake is coming out? Do you watch (or rewatch) the old version before going to see the new version? We’re going to argue about it. And finally, we will end the show […]Read On »

POP SHOW PODCAST | © 2016 AssignmentX

Episode 46 of the POP SHOW starring Anthony C. Ferrante is here and once again without Anthony as he was off doing some promotion for his Lifetime thriller FORGOTTEN EVIL. So instead it was left to Ryan Mitchelle (@walkawayENT), Sonia Mansfield (@TheSoniaShow) and myself (@PeterbrownAX) to helm the ship. And helm it we did as we discussed a variety of topics including the season finale of THE WALKING DEAD, which only I watch so it was a quick conversation. Also we profess our love of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and how it is 20 years old this year. That leads […]Read On »

Hey there, dorks. In this week’s episode, we chat about S-Town, a podcast from This American Life and Serial. All seven episodes dropped last Tuesday, and we listened to every episode. Is it addictive listening like Serial season one, or is it disappointing like Serial season two? In our second segment, we review the live-action remake of GHOST IN THE SHELL, and talk about the controversy surrounding the casting and more importantly – is it a good movie? And we end our show by sharing what we are dorking out about, including the series finale of BIG LITTLE LIES, which […]Read On »
