Movies: NOW YOU SEE ME 2 – The first NOW YOU SEE ME was a fun romp that mixed high profile magic with the possibility it was real mixed up in a caper involving good and bad magicians as well as some revenge elements. It ended with a finality of any one-off movie but this being Hollywood, something that becomes successful usually means it gets a sequel and here we are. Luckily, it isn’t bad albeit quite a bit different from the first. Instead of grand magic acts that are complex and amazing we instead get some tricky and slight-of-hand. […]Read On »

Michiel Huisman (pronounced Michael HIGHS-man) may be a familiar face to those who’ve seen the films THE AGE OF ADALINE, THE INVITATION and/or WILD. The actor from the Netherlands was also a series regular on TREME and recurred on NASHVILLE. But what Huisman has really been known for in the past few years is playing the object of female desire on propulsive genre fare. Until recently, he played Daario Naaharis, consort of Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys Targaryen, on GAME OF THRONES and the former arms dealer Cal who fathered a child with Tatiana Maslany’s Sarah Manning on ORPHAN BLACK. Now Huisman […]Read On »

Movie Review: MORGAN

MORGAN | © 2016 Twentieth Century Fox

Rating: R Stars: Kate Mara, Anya Taylor-Joy, Rose Leslie, Michael Yare, Toby Jones, Chris Sullivan, Boyd Holbrook, Vinette Robinson, Michelle Yeoh, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Paul Giamatti, Brian Cox Writer: Seth W. Owen Director: Luke Scott Distributor: Twentieth Century Fox Release Date: September 2, 2016 MORGAN is a science-fiction/horror story that plays hardball with our sympathies. Even as we’re shown the danger posed by Morgan (Anya Taylor-Joy) in the opening moments, we instinctively side with her and those who want to protect her. This instinct is challenged throughout, as – this isn’t giving much away – the first scene won’t be […]Read On »

Stars: David Boreanaz, Emily Deschanel, Michaela Conlin, TJ Thyne, Tamara Taylor, John Boyd, Brian Klugman, Sara Rue, Alyssa Diaz Writer: Joe Hortua, series created by Hart Hanson, based on the life and writings of Kathy Reichs Director: Silver Tree Network: Fox Network, Thursdays @ 8 PM Airdate: May 12, 2016 The BONES Season 11 episode has the usual mash-ups of primary mystery and secondary subplots, but the latter seem a tad half-hearted here. Perhaps the most enjoyable aspect of the episode is simply seeing Hodgins (TJ Thyne) returning to his old enthusiasm for lab experiments. An experiment is called for […]Read On »
