Twentieth Century Fox held a special event for their new animated 3D film RIO, from the creators of ICE AGE, on the studio lot on January 28th, along with a “Sneak Beak” of the film with special guest talent. RIO is a story of a domesticated macaw named Blu (voiced by Jesse Eisenberg), from Moose Lake, Minnesota who meets the fiercely independent Jewel (voiced by Anne Hathaway). Blu takes off on an adventure to Rio de Janeiro with this bird of his dreams. Unfortunately, Blu has never learned to fly! Walking the carpet were the stars, which included: Anne Hathaway, […]Read On »

TV Review: LIE TO ME – Season 3 – “Killer App” – Season Finale

Yes, this is the season finale of LIE TO ME, and I know the rumor mill has this being LIE TO ME’s series finale (and trust me, it is). So with that knowledge, it’s pretty insulting that the best they could do is shamelessly ride the coattails of THE SOCIAL NETWORK by giving us “Killer App.”

In Remembrance: The 10 Best Scores of Composer John Barry

John Barry - THE CONCERT

If the theme’s the thing in film scoring, then the passing of  composer John Barry Sunday at age 77  represents the true end of unabashed, symphonic lyricism. There were few composers who had his way with melody. Even the most explosive action of Barry’s Bond scores had a slow, hypnotically seductive rhythm. It was a lyricism that made generations fall in love, not only with their dates in the darkened theater, but with the lush possibility of film music itself. And that was just fine for Barry, who like so many of us, spent the better part of his youth […]Read On »

TV Review: BEING HUMAN – Season 1- “Some Thing to Watch Over Me”

The BEING HUMAN episode “Some Thing to Watch Over Me” gets its title from vampire Aidan’s (Sam Witwer) decision to enroll himself and werewolf roommate Josh (Sam Huntington) in the local neighborhood watch. After all, what better way to seem normal than to be good neighbors? Despite Josh’s nervous objections – and ghost Sally’s (Meaghan Rath) complaint that Aidan has managed to invite everybody who irked her in life, it seems like a good idea. Josh succeeds in becoming a local hero by tracking down the local spray-paint vandal (his keener than human sense of smile alerts him to the paint), even though he alarms himself with the amount of aggression he uses in the takedown.

TV Review: CHUCK – Season 4 – “Vs. The Push Mix”

It’s no surprise to CHUCK fans that “Vs. The Push Mix” would have served as some sort of series finale if the show didn’t get picked up for its back nine episodes for Season Four.

Of course, the show did get its full season pick-up, so now “Vs. The Push Mix” serves as an excellent half season finale – wrapping up tons of subplots and setting the stage for the second part of this season which looks like it might be about, “we need a Big Bad.”

TV Review: SPARTACUS: GODS OF THE ARENA – “Missio”

With first episode of SPARTACUS: GODS OF THE ARENA viewers were transported back five years before the events of SPARTACUS: BLOOD AND SAND. The beginnings of the House of Batiatus seemed shaky at best with the head of the house lacking some of that snake-like quickness to seize on any opportunity with ruthlessness and viciousness. Likewise his wife Lucretia seems to have milk-teeth compared to the shark-sized mouth of razors she ends up using in the original series.

Well, now we know: The two villains that will square off against Christian Bale’s gravelly-voiced Gotham City crusader in the third Christopher Nolan-helmed Batman film DARK KNIGHT RISES will be Catwoman (purrfect) and Bane (snap!) played by Anne Hathaway and Tom Hardy, respectively. With a fan base not only devoutly dedicated to the many years of continuity in the Bat-comics, but impressed by Nolan’s unique, some might even say pseudo-realistic take on the surreal shenanigans of the cowled one and his extensive rogues’ gallery, how exactly do you handle reintroducing both of these antagonists in a way sure to please […]Read On »

HUMAN TARGET (which airs a special episode tonight at 8:00 pm at Fox) is gearing up for the season two finale in a couple of weeks (in its regular time slot on Wednesday nights), and Mark Valley spoke today about what to expect. The most important nugget of information – there won’t be a major cliffhanger ending Season Two. “It won’t be a cliffhanger in terms of last season was,” says Valley. “It does sort of complete the second season, while leaving a lot of uncertainties and relationships. Nobody is in physical peril as much, we don’t know where some […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: Summer Glau protects THE CAPE

On NBC’s new series THE CAPE, hero Vince Faraday (David Lyons) can do amazing things with the title object, but he’d still be unlikely to survive without the guidance and assistance of Summer Glau’s Orwell, a mysterious young woman whose martial arts abilities are as impressive as her considerable computer skills. Glau is no stranger to the world of genre television and film. After playing the trapped spirit of a Russian ballerina in an episode of ANGEL, she was cast as the troubled, but super-powered River Tam on Joss Whedon’s FIREFLY, a role she reprised in the feature SERENITY. Glau […]Read On »
