Durkin Writer: Alex Tse, based on the 1972 screenplay by Phillip Fenty Director: Director X. Distributor: Columbia Pictures/Sony Release Date: June 13, 2018 One thing the new SUPERFLY has going for it is conviction. Not only does everyone involved seem unconcerned that they’re in a remake of the 1972 exploitation flick SUPER FLY, they proceed as though this is the first story ever told about a criminal who wants out of the life as […]Read On »

ABC’s ONCE UPON A TIME, now on Friday nights in its seventh season, has gone through quite a transformation this year. Then again, it’s gone through quite a few major reinventions since it premiered. Created by Edward Kitsis & Adam Horowitz, ONCE UPON A TIME began with the premise that many characters from the Enchanted Forest – including the Evil Queen Regina (Lana Parrilla), Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin), Prince Charming (Josh Dallas), Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) and more – had been deposited by a curse in the small town of Storybrooke, Maine, most of them with no memory of their true […]Read On »

Actor Raphael Sbarge had an interesting first half of 2014. He commuted back and forth between Vancouver, where he plays psychologist – and former cricket – Archie Hopper in ONCE UPON A TIME, and San Francisco and Los Angeles, where he plays Detective David Volk in TNT’s new series MURDER IN THE FIRST, created by Eric Lodal and the prolific Steven Bochco (NYPD BLUE, L.A. LAW and HILL STREET BLUES are a few of his other inventions). MURDER IN THE FIRST, which airs Mondays at 10 PM, takes place in San Francisco, where the murder of the assistant of a […]Read On »

TV Review: ONCE UPON A TIME – Season 2 – “Lacey”

Emilie De Ravin in ONCE UPON A TIME - Season 2 - "Lacey" | ©2013 ABC/Jack Rowand

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Meghan Ory Writer: Edward Kitsis & Adam Horowitz Director: Milan Cheylov Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: April 21, 2013 There are bits and pieces of other storylines going on in the “Lacey” episode of ONCE UPON A TIME but the larger story is about Mr. Gold (Robert Carlysle) and Belle (Emilie de Ravin). It’s kind of a sad story, but it doesn’t really seem to go anywhere. I suspect it’s mostly about a set up for the big season finale on May 12. Still it’s Regina (Lana Parilla) who […]Read On »

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Meghan Ory Writer: Robert Hull & Kalinda Vasquez Director: Ralph Hemecker Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: March 24, 2013 Well, well, well. It looks like we’re taking a step back from the depths of darkness (finally) on ONCE UPON A TIME. “Selfless, Brave and True” may be all the things Mary Margaret/Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) normally is, but it’s Pinocchio/August (Eion Bailey) who gets to play those cards for a change. Whew! It finally feels like we’re getting back on track here and it’s about time. We start on October 24, […]Read On »

TV Review: ONCE UPON A TIME – Season 2 – “Welcome to Storybrooke”

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Meghan Ory Writer: Ian Goldberg & Andrew Chambliss Director: David M. Barrett Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: March 17, 2013 Fine. I get it. Taking ONCE UPON A TIME to a darker place opens up a lot of room for interesting character growth and additional storylines. That makes sense. It’s good writing. Fine. But there’s a big difference between darker and the roiling pit of self-destructive despair we find ourselves in with “Welcome to Storybrooke.” Dark is interesting. Despair is merely depressing and depression, with its inherent lassitude is an awfully hard […]Read On »

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Meghan Ory Writer: Jane Espenson Director: Ralph Hemecker Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: March 10, 2013 I have been saying since last season that I thought Cora (Barbara Hershey), “The Miller’s Daughter,” was, in fact, that miller’s daughter – you know, the one that got caught up in the original Rumpelstiltskin story, when her father bragged that she could spin straw into gold. Well, I was right and ONCE UPON A TIME has worked its magical twist once again, and very nicely turned that story on its ear in one intense episode. However, I […]Read On »

TV Review: ONCE UPON A TIME – Season 2 – “The Queen is Dead”

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Meghan Ory Writer: Daniel T. Thomsen & David H. Goodman Director: Gwyneth Horder Payton Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: March 3, 2013 It’s almost always fun to get a charcter’s back story, and on ONCE UPON A TIME, those back stories have made for some great set-ups. But in “The Queen is Dead,” the story of Snow and her mother’s death, there’s just a meanness and a progressing darkness to the whole proceeding that doesn’t quite fit the world of the show as we know it. You end the episode […]Read On »
