Exclusive Interview: Sam Eidson rolls the eight-sided dice, and comes out with ZERO CHARISMA

ZERO CHARISMA | ©2013 Tribeca Film

For the straight set, the year’s most acclaimed performance belongs to Cate Blanchett as the unhinged, train engine of social destruction who blasts her formerly well-ordered life to smithereens, alienating friends and family with the effectiveness of a atom bomb in her absolute selfishness. However, it’s not like a whole bunch of physically and socially awkward role-playing viewers are going to exactly identify with the plight of a former doyenne of the Manhattan social scene. Instead, the actor they will undoubtedly call their own BLUE JASMINE is an Austinite named Sam Eidson, who takes on Orc-like fury as Scott, an […]Read On »

One of the more ambitious pilots ABC had in consideration this season was GOTHAM – a story of a female detective investigating an improbable murder that leads her to realize New York has a secret, magical underworld that the rest of the world doesn’t know about. While speaking to the press at the 2012 ABC Summer Press Tour, ABC Entertainment Group President Paul Lee spoke about the decision to not pick up the Michael Green created series for the fall schedule. “Michael Green is one of my favorite writers,” says Lee. “He’s really an amazing writer and we had a […]Read On »

Big news from Comic-Con 2012 on the BBC series MERLIN (which also airs in American on Syfy) as it enters its fifth season. While speaking to the press, Angel Coulby who plays Queen Guinevere Pendragon on the series (and is also making her first Comic-Con appearance), says MERLIN Season 5 is getting much darker in the new season. “It feels much more adult,” says Coulby. “I think they’ve pushed the boundaries each time with each series and it’s gotten darker and darker. We know a huge amount of our audience is adults and we can be more ambitious with the […]Read On »

We will focus on them when we finish Season 5.” The […]Read On »


TV Review: ALCATRAZ – Season 1 – “Sonny Burnett”

Cast: Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia, Sam Neill, Parminder Nagra, Jonny Coyne, Robert Forster Writers: Robert Hull Director: Nick Copus Network: Fox, airs Mondays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: March 5, 2012 Fox burned off two episodes of ALCATRAZ on Monday, making my life hell since I gotta do both hours. The first episode “The Ames Bros.” had a good deal of mythology and flashbacks that made it interesting to a degree even with the payoff being (at least for now) lame. The second episode, “Sonny Burnett”, offered little to none of this and was more of the inmate-of-the-week centered on […]Read On »

Cast: Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia, Sam Neill, Parminder Nagra, Jonny Coyne, Robert Forster Writers: Robert Hull Director: Nick Copus Network: Fox, airs Mondays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: March 5, 2012 How much of a baddass is Emerson Hauser (Sam Neill) on ALCATRAZ? The guy must be in his ’70s (if we are to believe he was 20-something when he first began as a guard at the prison), yet could care less if he’s standing on a land mine, he gets shot and brushes it off as if a flesh wound and gets blown up by dynamite only to grumble […]Read On »


CD Review: HAWK original soundtrack

When you hear the lush orchestrations, female choruses singing in some seemingly Elvish language and the dark, foreboding brass that signals ring-obsessed villainy, you might think you’ve somehow time-warped yourself a copy of the score for the forthcoming HOBBIT. Yet what’s even more astonishing is that HAWK turns out to not only be the score for a Welsh fantasy, but a short film at that. It’s a major stylistic leap up for British composer Stuart Hancock, who last impressed on Movie Score Media with his hard-edged martial arts music for UNDERGROUND and BODYGUARD: A NEW BEGINNING. Now Hancock enters far […]Read On »


TV Review: FRINGE – Season 3 – “Immortality”

Cast: Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Lance Reddick, Jasika Nicole, Kirk Acevedo Director: Brad Anderson Writers: David Wilcox, Ethan Gross Airs: Fridays on Fox Original Telecast: February 11, 2011 Bugs. I don’t think anyone really likes them other than those that have something invested scientifically. Even if you don’t mind them, you can’t really say you enjoy their presence. So having them hatch and explode from inside of you isn’t a pleasant thought at all and gives me specifically the heebie jeebies. Of course, it was FRINGE that decided to capitalize on this very subject in “Immortality” where a […]Read On »


TV Review: FRINGE – SEASON 3 – “The Firefly”

The fall finale of FRINGE, left much to be desired. Instead of going out with a bang and giving us a blockbuster way to remember the show leading up to the return, we got a rather mundane episode where the ultimate bottom line was Olivia (Anna Torv) ending her relationship with Peter (Joshua Jackson).
