At a Q&A session for STAR TREK: DISCOVERY, actress Mary Chieffo describes herself as a “giddy Klingon.” Someone points out that this is perhaps the first and only time the phrase “giddy Klingon” has ever been uttered, but it is accurate. Chieffo (pronounced Chief-Oh) plays the Klingon warrior L’Rell, and she is absolutely giddy about having the opportunity to be part of the STAR TREK franchise. STAR TREK: DISCOVERY premiered on the broadcast CBS network. The premiere and all subsequent episodes will be available (a new one coming out each Sunday over fifteen weeks) on CBS All-Access. Set ten years […]Read On »

Movie Review: A CURE FOR WELLNESS

A CURE FOR WELLNESS | © 2017 20th Century Fox

Rating: R Stars: Dane DeHaan, Jason Isaacs, Mia Goth, Harry Groener, Celia Imrie Writer: Justin Haythe, story by Gore Verbinski & Justin Haythe Director: Gore Verbinski Distributor: 20th Century Fox Release Date: February 17, 2017 A CURE FOR WELLNESS plays like Roman Polanski and Terry Gilliam had a cinematic baby – which got kidnapped and reared by Roger Corman in the last third. WELLNESS goes from beautifully photographed, slow-burn suspense to a Gothic gonzonana finish. The spooky part is mostly a worthwhile experience (with a few caveats), but it has a jaw-dropping change of tone that obliterates the earlier mood. […]Read On »

TV Review: AWAKE – Season 1 – “Turtles All The Way Down” – Series Finale

Stars: Jason Issacs, Laura Allen, Dylan Minnette, Cherry Jones, Steve Harris, Wilmer Valderrama, BD Wong Writer: Kyle Killen, story by Killen, Leonard Chang, Noelle Valdivia Director: Miguel Sapochnik Network: NBC, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: May 24, 2012 There’s two ways to look at the challenging NBC series AWAKE. On one hand, the network gave a greenlight to a challenging, original and incredibly high-concept police procedural that in any other NBC era it wouldn’t even make it past the pilot stage. On the other hand, you can view it as another missed opportunity – a chance to build and grow […]Read On »

AWAKE, which has its series finale tonight on NBC, has been a fascinating mixture of procedural and what-if. Creator Kyle Killen’s story posits that, following a horrific car accident, LAPD homicide detective Mike Britten, played by Jason Isaacs, wakes up from one reality into another. In one, his wife (Laura Allen) has survived the crash with him, but they have lost their son, and on the job, Mike is putting up with a rookie detective (Wilmer Valderrama) who’s meant to keep an eye on him. In the other reality, Mike’s wife has perished but their teenaged son Rex (Dylan Minette) […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: Kyle Killen is wide AWAKE

NBC’s AWAKE, which airs its series finale next week, is a show that unfortunately did not find an audience. Partly a police procedural – its hero, Jason Isaacs’ character Michael Britten, is a Los Angeles police homicide detective – AWAKE has another component that makes it unique. Following a terrible car accident, Michael awakens to one reality where his wife has survived the crash but their teenaged son is dead; when he goes to sleep, he wakes up in another reality where his son is alive but his wife has perished. Cases in one reality also turn up in different […]Read On »

Stars: Jason Issacs, Laura Allen, Dylan Minnette, Cherry Jones, Steve Harris, Wilmer Valderrama, BD Wong Writer: Howard Gordon & Evan Katz Director: Jeffrey Reiner Network: NBC, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: March 15, 2012 I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical when when I heard about the premise to AWAKE and how it was going to be able to sustain itself, in two different realities, week after week. Yet, here we are in Week 3, and the show continues to stay on the right path. It’s complicated, complex, but thoroughly engaging with a plot device that brings its […]Read On »
