Comic-Con 2014: Hand’s on ALIEN: ISOLATION video game – SDCC

  One of the most anticipated games of 2014 is the survival horror game ALIEN: ISOLATION, a game that promises to bring back the fear and claustrophobia of the original movie. During Comic-Con 2014, I was given a three-minute demo of the game inside a ginormous alien egg, where I was able to test out – for only three minutes – the game and get a feel for the dark, brooding environment. First off, the whole process of stepping into an ALIEN egg is just plain weird but cool at the same time. But it definitely sets the stage for …Read On »

Blu-ray Review: GRAVITY

GRAVITY | © 2014 Warner Home Video

Cast: Sandra Bullock, George Clooney, Ed Harris Writer: Alfonso Cuarón, Jonás Cuarón Director: Alfonso Cuarón Distributor: Warner Home Video Just when you think that Hollywood has run out of ideas and everything is a remake or a retelling or a sequel or adaptation … OK, that’s actually the truth. That is what Hollywood has become. But every so often a gem sneaks through all the crap and blows you away with how good Hollywood can actually be. GRAVITY lives up to all the hype that it has been given in so many ways. The sheer scale of this film is …Read On »

Cast: Karl Urban, Michael Ealy, Minka Kelly, Lili Taylor, Mackenzie Crook Writer: J.H. Wyman Director: Brad Anderson Network: Airs on Fox, Mondays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Nov. 17, 2013 ALMOST HUMAN plays very much like a modern BLADE RUNNER in a variety of ways. It is the future where man and machine are intertwined like never before. There are synthetics that exist in our daily lives – this time, however, as part of the police force rather than outlaws. Crime is at an all time high. There is a blend of cultures on the streets. The drama doesn’t play …Read On »

Interview: Composer Steven Price makes GRAVITY soar

GRAVITY soundtrack | ©2013 WaterTower Music

It’s been said that in space that no one can hear you scream. Yet for all of its astonishing visual, and technical accuracy, I can be fairly certain that the audience will be thankful that GRAVITY has thrown a bone to allow one glaring stylistic inaccuracy to survive in the void. Namely, it’s the emotionally identifiable companion of music that accompanies the lonely roller coaster ride of female astronaut Ryan Stone. For hearing nothingness would be cold comfort indeed, as it’s the innovative scoring of Steven Price that gives GRAVITY‘s black oblivion a feeling, beating heart. Of course, that isn’t …Read On »

Exclusive Interview: Sam Eidson rolls the eight-sided dice, and comes out with ZERO CHARISMA

ZERO CHARISMA | ©2013 Tribeca Film

For the straight set, the year’s most acclaimed performance belongs to Cate Blanchett as the unhinged, train engine of social destruction who blasts her formerly well-ordered life to smithereens, alienating friends and family with the effectiveness of a atom bomb in her absolute selfishness. However, it’s not like a whole bunch of physically and socially awkward role-playing viewers are going to exactly identify with the plight of a former doyenne of the Manhattan social scene. Instead, the actor they will undoubtedly call their own BLUE JASMINE is an Austinite named Sam Eidson, who takes on Orc-like fury as Scott, an …Read On »

Cast: Dean Norris, Rachelle Lefevre, Alexander Koch, Mike Vogel, Natalie Martinez, Aisha Hinds, Jolene Purdy, Britt Robinson Writer: Brian K. Vaughn, Scott Gold Director: Jack Bender Network: CBS, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Sept. 16, 2013 Considering UNDER THE DOME already got renewed by CBS for presumably a return in the summer of 2014, the producers apparently thought they could go out with a defined whimper instead of anything resembling a proper cliffhanger season finale. The season finale of the show, entitled “Curtains,” was a complete mess. Whereas the previous last four episodes have actually improved the show …Read On »
