Exclusive Interview: Mark Ruffalo talks THE NORMAL HEART

Larry Kramer’s play THE NORMAL HEART was first produced off-Broadway in 1985. In real life, Kramer is one of the founders of ACT UP, which describes itself as “a diverse, non-partisan group of individuals united in anger and committed to direct action to end the AIDS crisis,” which was being largely ignored by the government in the Eighties. In NORMAL HEART, the main character Ned Weeks is Kramer’s fictional surrogate, a gay man who is enraged by the indifference he encounters as he tries to get help for his critically ill lover and friends in 1981. Kramer has now adapted …Read On »

Viewers of ABC’s MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD, in its first season Tuesdays at 8 PM, were dealt a huge shock with the episode “Turn, Turn, Turn.” Airing just after the theatrical release of CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, it dealt (like SOLDIER) with the revelation that S.H.I.E.L.D. had from its inception been infiltrated by the proto-Nazi organization HYDRA, which has now revealed itself and is wreaking havoc. This is terrible for the series regulars – team leader Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg), Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen), Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker), Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) and Skye (Chloe Bennet), who’ve …Read On »

Interview: Composer Frank Ilfman is not afraid of the BIG BAD WOLVES

BIG BAD WOLVES | ©2014 Magnolia

One could say that the world first became aware of the Israeli film BIG BAD WOLVES (now out on DVD and Blu-ray) through Quentin Tarantino’s raving. And it’s easy to see why when you’ve got the setup of some poor shmuck chained to a chair, his unhinged tormentor delivering a humorously sadistic monologue before unleashing the bloody pain. But beyond the kind of unbearable shenanigans that might have the morally outraged screaming “torture porn!” lies a wonderfully twisted, and appallingly funny thriller that’s far more Hitchcock than Tarantino as a seeming child killer is given his just deserts – delivered courtesy …Read On »

Exclusive Interview: Christopher Meloni on SURVIVING JACK

Christopher Meloni is so associated with his long-running TV drama roles, especially NYPD detective Elliot Stabler on twelve years of LAW & ORDER: SVU and prison inmate Chris Keller on HBO’s OZ, plus last year’s turns as heroic Col. Nathan Hardy in MAN OF STEEL and principled Leo Durocher in 42, people tend to forget he has a lighter side. Meloni voiced Spike in DINOSAURS, appeared as different characters in the first two HAROLD & KUMAR films, had a wryly amusing guest turn on Season 5 of TRUE BLOOD and can currently be seen on the big screen as a …Read On »

NBC’s CHICAGO FIRE was such a hit of the 2012-2013 season that it took barely a year for it to launch a spin-off, CHICAGO P.D., Wednesday nights at 10 PM.

On CHICAGO P.D., Elias Koteas plays undercover detective Alvin Olinsky, a master of blending into the background. Koteas, a native of Montreal, studied acting in New York. He had an early role as a skinhead in John Hughes’ SOME KIND OF WONDERFUL. Since then, he’s been in a number of notable feature films including …Read On »

SHARKNADO was the surprise phenomenon of the summer of 2013. On screen, a hurricane full of killer sharks flooded Los Angeles. Off-screen, it got mentioned everywhere, from Time Magazine to THE TODAY SHOW, had sold-out midnight screenings and caused Twitter to explode. In SHARKNADO 2: THE SECOND ONE, which will premiere July 30 on the Syfy Channel, New York City is beset by the combination of excess water and huge toothy fish. Fin and April Shepard (Ian Ziering and Tara Reid), who bested the SHARKNADO of the first film, happen to be visiting when Great Whites begin taking bites of …Read On »

Interview: OCULUS composers The Newton Brothers reflect chills for new horror movie

If it can be said that a mirror captures the soul of its beholder, than OCULUS is a repository second to none in terms of maliciousness and murder – a glasswork fit for any evil queen, or ghostly demon for that matter. Encompassed by ornately Gothic woodwork, this titular mirror has slowly, psychopathically made mincemeat out of its owners through the centuries, most recently claiming a suburban mother and father to madness – not to mention making life sheer hell for their surviving children Tim and Kaylie Russell. Now, this brother and sister are determined to pay back this malevolent …Read On »
