Movie Review: OPEN WINDOWS

OPEN WINDOWS movie poster | ©2014 Cinedigm

Rating: R Stars: Elijah Wood, Sasha Grey, Neil Maskell Writer: Nacho Vigalondo Director: Nacho Vigalondo Distributor: Cinedigm Release Date: November 7, 2014 OPEN WINDOWS declares its intentions right from the start, when we appear to be watching an especially cheesy horror movie starring scream queen Jill Goddard (Sasha Grey). Then it turns out we’re watching a trailer, being watched at a convention, which is in turn being streamed live on the computer of Nick Chambers (Elijah Wood). We can’t say we weren’t stylistically warned that the film is going to play more than a few tricks on its characters and …Read On »

THE PACT 2 movie poster | ©2014 IFC

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Camille Luddington, Caity Lotz, Scott Michael Forster, Patrick Fischler, Mark Steger Writers: Dallas Richard Hallam & Patrick Horvath Directors: Dallas Richard Hallam & Patrick Horvath Distributor: IFC Midnight Release Date: Theatrical and VOD October 31, 2014 The good and bad news about THE PACT 2 is that it’s a horror sequel that stands perfectly well on its own; there’s no need to have seen the original PACT. The good news is that newcomers will feel up to speed; the bad news is that this means the plot is relatively sparse. June Abbott (Camille Luddington) is a …Read On »

INTERSTELLAR movie poster | ©2014 Paramount Pictures

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, John Lithgow, Mackenzie Foy Writers: Jonathan Nolan & Christopher Nolan Director: Christopher Nolan Distributor: Paramount Release Date: November 7, 2014 The term “hard science fiction” means that the subject matter involves actual science, rather than the type of science fiction like, say, STARGATE, where the science only exists to get characters from here to there. INTERSTELLAR is a melding of hard science fiction, interpersonal drama, big action sequences and big ideas. The screenplay by Jonathan Nolan and director Christopher Nolan goes for epic scope, with the fate of both …Read On »

THE GAME | ©2014 BBC America

In BBC America’s new miniseries THE GAME, premiering Wednesday, Nov. 5 at 10 PM, it’s the early 1970s. England and the Soviet Union are spying on one another and it’s not clear to us, or perhaps even to him, where the loyalties of MI-6 agent Joe Lambe (Tom Hughes) truly are. Joe’s love has been murdered by the KGB, so he has vengeance on his mind, while some strange office politics play out at headquarters, where Daddy (Brian Cox) rules the department. Then there’s the possibility of nuclear war, due to a particular secret that the KGB is keen to …Read On »

DOCTOR WHO - SERIES 8 - "Dark Water" poster | ©2014 BBC/BBC Worldwide

Stars: Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman Writer: Steven Moffat Director: Rachel Talay Original Telecast: November 1, 2014 Network: BBC America Ordinarily with my DOCTOR WHO reviews I try to avoid spoilers, but with everything that happens in “Dark Water” I really feel the need to actively discuss the major plot points that are big game changers for everyone’s favorite Timelord. Let’s just start with Danny Pink (Sam Anderson) is dead. That’s where the episode begins and I know it’s supposed to be a huge emotional moment, but Danny just hasn’t had enough going for him to make me care that he …Read On »

Actor John Cho has done quite a lot in his career, including playing Harold in the HAROLD AND KUMAR movies, taking on the mantle of Mr. Sulu for the STAR TREK reboot films and being a regular in four previous television series. However, ABC’s half-hour SELFIE, Tuesdays at 8 PM, is Cho’s first lead in a romantic comedy.

Stars: Tommy Chong, Bethany Mota, Janel Parrish, Alfonso Ribeiro, Sadie Robertson, Lea Thompson, Michael Waltrip Network: ABC, airs Mondays Original Telecast: November 3, 2014 There was no other place for Michael Waltrip to go but home. After lasting an impressive eight weeks, the Nascar superstar, along with his partner Emma Slater, was voted off DANCING WITH THE STARS a week shy of the semi- finals. A dance off as to who would get three extra points may have hurt him in the DWTS dance race. The highest scoring couple of the night, Janal Parrish & Val Chmerkovskiy who earned a …Read On »

SLEEPY HOLLOW star John Noble doesn’t lose his head in Season 2 – Exclusive Interview

John Noble stars as Henry in SLEEPY HOLLOW | © 2014 Fred Norris/FOX

In Fox’s SLEEPY HOLLOW, now in its second season Mondays at 9 PM, John Noble plays a character who has changed considerably in our perceptions. We first met his Henry Parish last season. Henry introduced himself as a psychically sensitive “sin eater” who apparently wanted to help Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) and police lieutenant Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie) in their efforts to prevent the Apocalypse. Imagine their surprise when “Henry” turned out to be not only Jeremy, the presumed-dead son of Ichabod and Katrina (Katia Winter) – who now appears older than his parents – but also the Horseman of …Read On »
