NBC’s REVOLUTION, which has its first-season finale tonight, Monday June 3 at 10 PM, has been picked up for a second season. This should offer fans some relief, since right now on the show, the Earth is in danger of catching fire altogether. In REVOLUTION, created by Eric Kripke (who also birthed SUPERNATURAL), under the auspices of Kripke’s fellow executive producer J.J. Abrams, there was a planet-wide blackout fifteen years earlier and electricity has not returned to the masses since. Power-hungry militia leader Monroe (David Lyons) has gotten his hands on some functioning helicopter gun ships. One ofMonroe’s adversaries, Rachel […]Read On »

THE BORGIAS, Showtime’s epic series about the notorious family that flourished in Rome the late fifteenth and early sixteen century, ends its second season Sunday. Not to fear – Showtime has ordered a third season to air in 2013. Created by executive producer Neil Jordan, THE BORGIAS tells the story of what happened during papal reign of patriarch Rodrigo Borgia (Jeremy Irons), who was Pope Alexander VI from 1492 through 1503. Season Two of THE BORGIAS began with a bang, or more precisely a burning, as one character was immolated inside an enormous representation of a bull in the episode […]Read On »

Interview: THOR composer Patrick Doyle wields the mighty musical hammer

Save those puny electronic action scores for mere mortals. For if there’s one composer who’s brought down the symphonic thunder of the composing gods, then his name would be inscribed as Patrick Doyle. Receiving his musical and acting education in his native Scotland, Doyle’s dual artistic threats would strike up a winning collaboration with Kenneth Branagh, whom Doyle beat for an actual billing when both starred in CHARIOTS OF FIRE. Branagh would scantly toil in the background for long, as his theatrical flair allowed him to take a 9 million dollar gamble behind, and in front of the camera with […]Read On »

With the new Marvel comics adaptation of THOR hitting theaters today, the film has not only created one new rising star with Chris Hemsworth as the titular character, but also with Tom Hiddleston who plays the villainous Loki (and brother to Thor).

TAKE 1 On originally going up […]Read On »

THOR - Sif teaser poster | ©2011 Marvel/Paramount

THOR has wowed fans and casual moviegoers alike with its ability to weave the high-falutin’ Asgardian mythos into the otherwise Earthbound and technology-driven Marvel movie saga. Of course we’ll be seeing the Thunder God swinging Mjolnir with a variety of costumed cohorts and once more dealing with the dastardly doings of Loki when THE AVENGERS arrives in theaters next year. Since there are so many other solo adventures the son of Odin might yet embark upon, where will Thor go next when it’s time for the inevitable THOR 2 sequel? Who will he meet? Who will he battle? Who will […]Read On »

Stars: Jeremy Irons, François Arnaud, Holliday Grainger, Colm Feore, David Oakes, Joanne Whalley Writer: Neil Jordan Director: John Maybury Network: Showtime, airs Sunday nights Original Telecast: April 24th, 2010 The last episode of THE BORGIAS that I reviewed I stated that the series was slowing down to a dreadful pace, and needed something to save it. Episode five, “Borgias in Love” seemed to quicken the pace and up the ante in the continuing various plotlines. Let’s start where we left off in episode four with Lucrezia Borgia (Holliday Granger) being married off to Giovanni Sforza (Ronan Vibert) to help secure […]Read On »

Stars: Jeremy Irons, François Arnaud, Holliday Grainger, Colm Feore, David Oakes, Derek Jacobi, Joanne Whalley Writer: Neil Jordan Director: Simon Cellan Jones Network: Showtime, airs Sunday nights Original Telecast: April 17th, 2010 THE BORGIAS has officially slowed down to an agonizing pace. The rest of the season will determine whether or not I decide to watch the second season (if there is a second season).
