Toye Network: Airs on NBC, Wednesdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Oct. 23, 2013 The role of Monroe (David Lyons) on the second season of REVOLUTION is an interesting one.

Rating: R Stars: Michael Fassbender, Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Cameron Diaz, Brad Pitt, Ruben Blades Writer: Cormac McCarthy Director: Ridley Scott Distributor: Twentieth Century Fox Release Date: October 25, 2013 Director Ridley Scott and writer Cormac McCarthy are masters of craft who should not be underestimated. However, their collaboration on THE COUNSELOR – erstwhile novelist McCarthy’s first screenplay – is not the finest work of either one. Although THE COUNSELOR has certain thematic qualities in common with NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, it lacks of that story’s poles, the ethical if ultimately ineffectual sheriff played by Tommy Lee Jones or […]Read On »
