Cast: Meagan Good, Stark Sands, Nick Zano, Laura Regan, Wilmer Valderrama Writer: Max Borenstein Director: Mark Mylod Network: Airs on Fox @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: Sept. 21, 2015 MINORITY REPORT is an interesting show at least from the “Pilot” episode. There is a lot going on here beyond just carrying over from where the movie left off. In the television show, the events of the movie are not necessarily taken as gospel but they have an influence on where this show begins. The precog program has been abolished after abuse of the system resulted in some problematic issues with […]Read On »

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 »

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 »

TV Review: ALMOST HUMAN – Season 1 – “Pilot” – Season Premiere

Karl Urban stars in ALMOST HUMAN "Pilot" | (c) 2013 Liane Hentscher/FOX

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 »
