Starring: Tom Welling, Erica Durance, Justin Hartley, Cassidy Freeman Writer: John Chisholm Director: Justin Hartley Network: The CW, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: April 29, 2011 Sadly, SMALLVILLE’s recent winning streak of episodes as it heads to its series finale was disrupted by “Dominion.” What should have been a powerful episode, instead turns out lukewarm treading on territory we’ve seen countless times before in films like 300 and GLADIATOR. The idea is a cool one though as Clark (Tom Welling) and Oliver (Justin Hartley) travel to the Phantom Zone to find out why one of the Zoners had managed to […]Read On »


TV Review: SMALLVILLE – Season 10 – “Booster”

Starring: Tom Welling, Erica Durance, Justin Hartley, Cassidy Freeman Writer: Geoff Johns Director: Tom Welling Network: The CW, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: April 22, 2011 From the previews of the new SMALLVILLE episode “Booster”, it looked like a disaster in the making. A gold-plated superhero-for-hire named Booster Gold (Eric Martsolf) flies into town to one-up The Blur with his showy theatrics which include revealing his face to the public. However, as the episode progresses, it becomes a story about what it takes to really be a hero, and again, is yet another lesson for Clark Kent (Tom Welling) to […]Read On »

TV Review: SMALLVILLE – Season 10 – “Kent”

Starring: Tom Welling, Erica Durance, Justin Hartley, Cassidy Freeman Writer: Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders from a story by Genevieve Sparling Director: Jeannot Szwarc Network: The CW, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: April 15, 2011 With five episodes left of the entire series run of SMALLVILLE, it looks like every episode is counting. With “Kent,” it turns out to be a particularly emotional and strong Season 10 entry that pays off the alternate universe story points we previously saw in “Luthor” where Clark Kent (Tom Welling) was raised by Lionel Luthor and became a super baddie. Clark Luthor (or AltClark […]Read On »

You don’t see this is the man, this is the hero […]Read On »

While Ryan Reynolds won’t give up many spoilers for the upcoming action blockbuster GREEN LANTERN (hitting theaters June 17, 2011), he is happy to give some hints. During WonderCon 2011, Warner Bros showed an extended clip of the movie during the panel including a cool construct of Hal Jordan using a green-powered giant machine gun. But was that Reynolds favorite Jordan construct? “I have a few favorites but I’m afraid if I start talking about constructs an executive from Warner is gonna pop around a corner and blow dart me,” Reynolds says. “But I like [the machine gun construct] but […]Read On »
