CD Review: MASSACRE AT MARBLE CITY

MASSACRE AT MARBLE CITY soundtrack | ©2012 Beat Records

 When Americans hear “Spaghetti Western,” Ennio Morricone stands as the lone gunslinger. But thanks to Italy’s Beat Records label, other practitioners of this mythic, self-referential craft are getting their time in the sagebrush spotlight, especially Francesco De Masi. While his one English-language modern martial arts oater would be LONE WOLF McQUAID, De Masi was as prolific as Morricone on their home turf with the likes of ARIZONA COLT, ANY GUN CAN PLAY and RINGO, THE LONE RIDER. Beat now unleashes a De Masi fusillade in the genre (far from the only one practiced), two bullets of which include MASSACRE AT […]Read On »

TV Review: ONCE UPON A TIME – Season 1 – “Hat Trick”

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Raphael Sbarge Writer: Vladimir Cvetko & David H. Goodman Director: Ralph Hemecker Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: March 25, 2012 How much you like “Hat Trick” will depend a lot on how you define Fairy Tales. If you believe that ONCE UPON A TIME should restrict itself to Grimm, Andersen and maybe folklore, then you’re not going to like this episode. If you’re fine with including any Disney property involving magic (and you know it will all be Disney), then this dabble into the world of Wonderland will be just fine, especially since we’ve […]Read On »

TV Review: ALCATRAZ – Season 1 – “Tommy Madsen” – Season Finale

Cast: Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia, Sam Neill, Parminder Nagra, Jonny Coyne, Robert Forster Writers: Jennifer Johnson, Daniel Pyne Director: Aaron Lipstadt Network: Fox, airs Mondays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: March 26, 2012 It’s not just San Francisco. That’s pretty much what we learned on the season finale of ALCATRAZ “Tommy Madsen”. Warden James (Jonny Coyne) has sent inmates from The Rock (and maybe other places) all over the U.S. Why he is sending these people to the present day – some 50 years into the future – is unclear. It actually is even less clear than when the whole […]Read On »

Cast: Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia, Sam Neill, Parminder Nagra, Jonny Coyne, Robert Forster Writers: Leigh Dana Jackson, Coleman Herbert Director: Eagle Egilsson Network: Fox, airs Mondays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: March 26, 2012 While billed as the season finale of ALCATRAZ, the first episode of the two-hour finale was more of a setting the stage for the second hour which was actually the finale. In “Garrett Stillman”, the Alcatraz retrieval crew is on the hunt for Stillman, a notorious thief that in the present day is once again up to his old ways robbing three armored cars in order […]Read On »

Stars: Gavin DeGraw, Donald Driver, Roshon Fegan, Melissa Gilbert, Katherine Jenkins, Gladys Knight, William Levy, Maria Menounos, Martina Navratilova, Sherri Shepard, Jack Wagner, Jaleel White Network: ABC, airs Mondays, Tuesdays Original Telecast: March 26th, 2012 And so the DANCING WITH THE STARS contenders break away from the pack. This week showed us just who has got what it takes and who does not. However, this isn’t rocket science here.  Most of those who did well last week, continued to do so this week and those who did just all right the first week, didn’t do so great the second week.

Stars: John Hamm, Elisabeth Moss, Vincent Kartheiser, Christina Hendricks, Jared Harris, John Slattery, January Jones, Jessica Pare, Robert Morse, Aaron Staton, Rich Sommer, Kiernan Shipka Writer: Matthew Wiener, Series created by Matthew Wiener Director: Jennifer Getzinger    Network: AMC, airs Sunday nights Original Telecast: March 25, 2012 It feels like AMC’s hit series MAD MEN has been gone forever. The last episode of season four aired in October of 2010, and the show JUST finally came back. Of course there was plenty of rumors as to what was going to happen when the series returned. The speculation alone of what […]Read On »

Thank goodness for Jason Segel – a self-professed Muppets fans who along with fellow screenwriter […]Read On »

As the Fox thriller series ALCATRAZ has progressed, we’ve learned a little bit about the mysterious Warden Edwin James (Jonny Coyne) as flashbacks have revealed some of the strange things he’s been up to in the 1960s – many of which could be indirectly or directly responsible for the inmates disappearing and now suddenly reappearing in present day San Francisco. It’s in these flashbacks where many questions have come up such as “What’s behind the mysterious door, what’s the Warden doing with the inmates blood and how does he fit into all of this?” ASSIGNMENT X caught up with the […]Read On »

In Fox’s new series ALCATRAZ, which has its first-season finale tonight in a two-hour block beginning at 8 PM, San Francisco police homicide Detective Rebecca Madsen (Sarah Jones) notices something strange is going on when the fingerprints of a man who supposedly died fifty years earlier show up at a homicide scene. She subsequently learns that Alcatraz Prison, where the suspect had been incarcerated, was actually shut down because all of the inmates vanished suddenly; they are now showing up in the present. If viewers have noticed a slight change in tone around Episode Seven of ALCATRAZ, executive-produced by J.J. […]Read On »

Cast: Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Anna Torv, Seth Gabel, Lance Reddick, Jasika Nicole Writer: J.H. Wyman & Graham Roland Director: J.H. Wyman Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: March 24, 2012 It’s time for more big revelations in the first FRINGE episode after a month long hiatus. “A Short Story About Love” shores up the relationship between Olivia (Anna Torv) and Peter (Joshua Jackson) in surprising (and not so surprising ways). The focal point of the investigative story is a man named Anson Carr (Michael Massee). His face is severely burned, yet he has the desire to be loved. […]Read On »
