Exclusive Interview: Christopher Meloni on SURVIVING JACK

Christopher Meloni in SURVIVING JACK - Season 1 | ©2014 Fox/Christopher Fragapane

Christopher Meloni is so associated with his long-running TV drama roles, especially NYPD detective Elliot Stabler on twelve years of LAW & ORDER: SVU and prison inmate Chris Keller on HBO’s OZ, plus last year’s turns as heroic Col. Nathan Hardy in MAN OF STEEL and principled Leo Durocher in 42, people tend to forget he has a lighter side. Meloni voiced Spike in DINOSAURS, appeared as different characters in the first two HAROLD & KUMAR films, had a wryly amusing guest turn on Season 5 of TRUE BLOOD and can currently be seen on the big screen as a …Read On »

DVD Review: THE BANSHEE CHAPTER

BANSHEE CHAPTER | © 2014 XLrator Media

Rating: R Stars: Katia Winter, Ted Levine, Michael McMillian, Jenny Gabrielle Writer: Blair Erickson, story by Daniel J. Healy Director: Blair Erickson Distributor: XLrator Media DVD Release Date: February 5, 2014 Although it relies to a large extent on found footage, fear not the format – THE BANSHEE CHAPTER is actually a well-made, delightfully acted and best of all honestly scary brain twist of a horror movie. Between some cleverly edited real footage (we hear from President Bill Clinton, of all people), the name-check of H.P. Lovecraft and a character clearly patterned after Hunter S. Thompson, it’s a trip in …Read On »

TV Review: WILFRED – Season 3 – “Distance”

Stars: Elijah Wood, Jason Gann, Dorian Brown, Dwight Yoakam Writer: Jacob Young, series created by Jason Gann & Adam Zwar, adapted for American television by David Zuckerman Director: Randall Einhorn Network: FX, Thursdays @ 10 PM Airdate: August 15, 2013 There aren’t too many shows that can get away with jokes about castration. GAME OF THRONES and TRUE BLOOD show the act, but it’s not meant to be funny. To be fair, the WILFRED episode “Distance” doesn’t actually have emasculation, so levity is a little more possible here. How exactly does Ryan (Elijah Wood) get from obsessing over a crayon …Read On »
