THE KILLING begins its second season tonight, Sunday, on AMC in a two-hour block starting at 8 PM before settling into its regular timeslot at 9 PM next Sunday. Based on the hit Danish series FORBRYDELSEN and developed for American television by Veena Sud. THE KILLING Season 2 follows the homicide investigation of the murder of Seattle-area teenager Rosie Larsen, as well as the crime’s devastating effect on her family. A lot of people were irate that the first season ended without the killer being revealed (perhaps especially because the advertising had so strongly implied the revelation would occur). However, […]Read On »

CD Review: Bruce Springsteen – WRECKING BALL

Bruce Springsteen - WRECKING BALL | ©2012 Columbia Records

Distributor: Columbia Records Suggested Retail Price: $11.99 (regular edition), $12.99 (special edition) When you have so many great albums under your belt like Bruce Springsteen (BORN IN THE U.S.A., DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN, THE RISING), you can pretty much do whatever you want and it isn’t going to tarnish your legacy. There have been some near misses, some grand experiments and a handful of very good songs over the years from Springsteen, but it was that spirit of experimentation that kept The Boss from getting stale even if consistency wasn’t always the mission. Thankfully WRECKING BALL remedies all […]Read On »

TV Review: GRIMM – Season 1 – “Island of Dreams”

Stars: David Giuntoli, Russell Hornsby, Bitsie Tulloch, Silas Weir Mitchell, Reggie Lee, Sasha Roiz, Bree Turner, Claire Coffee Writers David Greenwalt & Jim Kouf Director: Rob Bailey Network: NBC, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: March 31, 2012 NBC is not doing GRIMM any favors with constantly preempting it and sending it on long hiatuses. The show is one of their major success stories for the network this year – and it’s been doing it in the dead zone of Friday night programming opposite two other similar genre shows FRINGE and SUPERNATURAL. It’s a shame, because if they could find a […]Read On »

CD Review: BACK TO GAYA soundtrack

BACK TO GAYA soundtrack | ©2012 Movie Score Media

As with the final works of such ailing composers as Jerry Goldsmith, Michael Kamen didn’t let sickness diminish the talents that first landed him on the Hollywood map, namely a flair for orchestral writing. And like the equally missed Goldsmith, Kamen’s memorable swan song would be for an animated film. BACK TO GAYA (otherwise known by its equally confounding titles of  THE SNURKS  or BOO, ZINO & THE SNURKS) is no LOONEY TUNES: BACK IN ACTION or the Kamen-scored IRON GIANT for that matter. And that’s one big reason why this otherwise terrific soundtrack has languished in obscurity until Movie […]Read On »

Movie Review: INTRUDERS

Rating: R Stars: Clive Owen, Carice Van Houten, Daniel Bruhl, Pilar Lopez De Ayala, Ella Purnell, Izan Corchero, Kerry Fox, Hector Alterio Writers: Nicolas Casariego & Jaime Marques Director: Juan Carlos Fresnadillo Distributor: Millennium Entertainment Release Date: March 30, 2012 With a preteen girl and a small boy both flickering between the real world and a scary figure who threatens to drag them elsewhere, INTRUDERS has notes from movies as diverse as PAN’S LABYRINTH and A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, while the suggestion that found objects can become deadly may remind some of BOOGEYMAN (the 2005 film co-written by Eric […]Read On »

Movie Review: WRATH OF THE TITANS

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Edgar Ramirez, Toby Kebbell, Rosamund Pike, Bill Nighy, Danny Huston, John Bell Writers: Dan Mazeau & David Leslie Johnson, story by Greg Berlanti & David Leslie Johnson & Dan Mazeau Director: Jonathan Liebesman Distributor: Warner Bros. Release Date: March 30, 2012 WRATH OF THE TITANS is actually more or less okay, but there are a number of elements that offer themselves up for nitpicking criticism at the outset. For one thing, while “titans” was being used figuratively to describe large and imposing beings and monsters in this movie’s forerunner, 2010’s CLASH […]Read On »

TV Review: FRINGE – Season 4 – “Nothing As It Seems”

Cast: Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Anna Torv, Seth Gabel, Lance Reddick, Jasika Nicole Writer: Jeff Pinkner & Akiva Goldsman Director: Frederick E.O. Toye Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: March 30, 2012 After a couple of solid weeks, the “Nothing As it Seems” episode of FRINGE takes a detour in monster-of-the week territory that just seems to out-of-place in the FRINGE universe. “Nothing As It Seems” revisits a previous case from Peter’s original timeline about the man who turns into a monstrous humanoid porcupine. That case is revived in the new timeline, but things are drastically different. What we […]Read On »

Aside from the classic Rankin-Bass stop motion animated productions in the early 1970s (THE EASTER BUNNY […]Read On »

Stars: Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Donald Glover, Ken Jeong, Chevy Chase, Jim Rash Writer: Chris McKenna Director:  Dan Eckman Network: NBC, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: March 29, 2012 CHUCK was shameless and appreciative of their association with Subway. The sandwich company was incorporated into the fabric of the show – which, along with the fans, was integral in keeping the series on the air as long as it did. Now COMMUNITY is biting the Subway hand that feeds with its hilarious new episode “Digital Exploration Of Interior Design.” A new sandwich shop […]Read On »
