Based on a graphic novel series, Syfy’s new Wednesday-night series HAPPY! chronicles what happens when a little girl’s imaginary flying unicorn friend (the animated creature is voiced by Patton Oswalt) seeks out the child’s ex-cop hitman father Nick Sax (played by Christopher Meloni) to rescue her from a kidnapper.

  Movies: CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR – One of the best movies of 2016 is indeed a comic book movie. And it is a doozy in a lot of ways.

Not only is CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR a continuation of the previous Cap film, CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, but it also serves as a sequel to AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON. The film straddles the line of showing the […]Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Bel Powley, Alexander Skarsgard, Christopher Meloni, Kristen Wiig Writer: Marielle Heller, based on the book by Phoebe Gloeckner Director: Marielle Heller Distributor: Sony Pictures Classics Release Date: August 7, 2015 It’s easy to imagine that THE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL.

Those whose teen years went in completely other directions may still be intrigued, but could equally be disbelieving, alienated and/or bored. For those open to its appeal, THE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL is full […]Read On »

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 »
