Composer Interview: Conrad Pope spends time with MY WEEK WITH MARILYN

It takes many skilled hands to keep Hollywood running as the stars take their bows- an army that includes personal assistants, makeup artists and publicists, all of whom are sure to step out of the way of the glaring flashbulbs. Then there’s the even less sexy caste of the studio machine called “below the line,” the mostly unrecognized visual effects artists, writers, production designers, editors, costumers and other skilled craftspeople who allow the stars to shine- their own jobs eased on the steam of even more obscure laborers chained to computers and sewing machines. Yet these toiling men and women …Read On »

Last night ASSIGNMENT X was invited to attend a special seven-minute presentation of the IMAX prologue to next summer’s THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Batman film (opening July 20, 2012). This early look at the film is going to be attached to select IMAX theaters showing MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – GHOST PROTOCOL opening next Friday (you can click on the link to see which theaters will have the DARK KNIGHT RISES prologue). However, the press got the added bonus of being treated to an appearance by the film’s director Christopher Nolan. He spoke about the value of IMAX and what an amazing …Read On »


Car Review: 2011 KIA Optima SX

Car Manufacturer: KIA Model: 2011 Optima SX Suggested Retail Price: $25,995.00 Reviewing cars is a brand new thing for ASSIGNMENT X, but, as cars begin to feel like moving super computers all on their own, it was about time to add them to our pop culture review diet. Granted, we’re not car experts, we just know what’s cool and what works for us as consumers, which is how we’ll approach our first car review in our magazine. It’s been some time since my family’s last car purchase (2002 to be exact), so getting to drive around in a brand new …Read On »


THE X FACTOR Season 1 Recap: Nothing to Crow about as Rachel Crow gets her heart ripped out by Nicole Scherzinger

Network: Fox Original Telecast: November 30, 2011 Here’s the problem with having 13, 14, or 15 year olds competing on reality programs – they’re not mature enough and emotionally not ready to take on the big hurdles these kind of shows present. And THE X FACTOR has proven all season, its youngest contestants may be talented, but to be thrust into the dog eat dog world of the entertainment industry is a dangerous, slippery slope. First, we had the arrogance of Astro refusing to perform when he was in the bottom one week. Last week, the judges unfairly ousted Drew …Read On »


TV Review: REVENGE – Season 1 – “Loyalty”

Stars: Emily VanCamp, Madeleine Stowe, Henry Czerny, Josh Bowman, Nick Wechsler, Gabriel Mann, Ashley Madekwe, Christa B. Allen, Connor Paolo Writer: Wendy Calhoun & Nikki Toscano Director: J. Miller Tobin Network: ABC, Wednesday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: December 7, 2011 It almost seems as thought the various plotlines of REVENGE are spinning out of control in this week’s episode, “Loyalty.” Of course, the problem with being angry is that you tend to alienate the people you can least afford to, and Emily (Emily VanCamp) is certainly heading that direction, having issues with her mentor Satoshi Takeda (Hiroyuki Sanada) and Nolan (Gabriel Mann). Just a refresher to (hopefully) eliminate confusion – Emily Thorne …Read On »

EUREKA can now proudly join that select company with its fourth-year Christmas special, “Do …Read On »


TV Review: THE X FACTOR – Season 1 – “The Top 5 Perform” Recap

Network: Fox Original Telecast: December 7, 2011 THE X FACTOR is down to the Final Five, and I’m so bored with the remaining contestants, going into the latest episode, I was prepared to be bored to tears. After Drew got the boot last week (my fave singer), the five remaining have a lot to prove. Usually I list the judges comments, but it doesn’t matter what they really say tonight. Last week they proved they’re in it for themselves – not for voting for who is most deserving. Yet, even more so, what is necessary now, is to determine and …Read On »

With high school ending for …Read On »
