Stars: Anson Mount, Colm Meaney, Common, Dominique McElligott, Tom Noonan, Christopher Heyerdahl Writer:  Tony Gayton & Thomas Brady  Director: Joe Gayton       Network: AMC, airs Sunday nights Original Telecast: September 16, 2012 HELL ON WHEELS is a tough show to watch sometimes. Not because of bad writing or anything negative, but because the subject matter is so visceral and harsh that it takes a bit to sit and watch it through to the terminus point. A perfect example of that for me is last episode when they were digging the bullet out of Durant (Colm Meaney). I’m weird. I can handle …Read On »

THE WORDS soundtrack | ©2012 Lakeshore Records

ZARVOS: In the haute world of writers, elegance, fashion and intellect are oft-used words when it comes to getting the keys to the kingdom of literary intelligentsia. It’s a gilded, lionized place that many have cheated their way into. And those seemingly fortunate con artists will oftentimes do anything to maintain that position, even at the cost of their relationships and mental health before the guise ultimately crumbles. THE WORDS is one such tale (or multiple tales) of young Rory Jansen (Bradley Cooper), whose prized novel is unmasked for another’s when the real Old Man author (Jeremy Irons) comes calling. …Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Karl Urban, Olivia Thirlby, Lena Headey, Wood Harris Writer: Alex Garland, based on the JUDGE DREDD comic created by John Wagner and Carlos Esquerra Director: Pete Travis Distributor: Lionsgate Release Date: September 21, 2012 Apart from shared comic book origins, DREDD 3D has nothing to do with the 1995 Sylvester Stallone starrer JUDGE DREDD (or the 1997 and 2003 iterations). This is a good thing, as the new version has a sense of internal coherence that helps us take it seriously on its own terms. Director Pete Travis makes good use of 3D and slow motion to …Read On »

Stars: Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill Writer: Toby Whithouse Director:  Saul Metzstein  Network: BBC America, airs Saturday nights Original Telecast: September 15, 2012 DOCTOR WHO returns to the Wild, Wild West with “A Town Called Mercy” this week, and this is a considerable step up from “The Gunfighters.” Sure the 1960’s adventure had famous western names to boast, but this new episode has a really nifty cyborg and some fun moments here and there, plus a new Stetson for the Doctor.
