Fans watched from the street and inside and all around the Hollywood/Highland complex. Walking the “yellow brick road” were the stars of the film, which included: James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, Zach Braff, Joey King, Bill Cobbs, Bruce Campbell, Steve […]Read On »

They weren’t expecting their order to get cut from thirteen to ten, let alone having the aired order pared down to nine. As a result, “Razer” sets up some major questions that creator Tom […]Read On »

In NBC’s THE CAPE, which has its finale tonight at 9 PM, the masked but non-superpowered hero must contend with several villains including Scales. What dock boss Dominic Raoul, aka Scales, may lack in social manipulation skills, he makes up for in sheer toughness (and has somewhat reptilian skin to go with the nickname). When the character is meant to be immediately intimidating, it helps to cast an actor like Vinnie Jones, the English former footballer turned actor who has played a lot of gritty types in films like his debut, LOCK, STOCK AND TWO SMOKING BARRELS, SNATCH, X-MEN: THE […]Read On »

Stars: David Lyons, Keith David, Summer Glau, James Frain, Jennifer Ferrin, Ryan Wynott, Dorian Missick, Martin Klebba, Tom Noonan, Glenn Fitzgerald, Ileana Douglas Writers: Toni Graphia & Robbie Thompson Director: Roxann Dawson Network: NBC, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: February 21, 2011 In the first episode of THE CAPE’s two-parter “The Lich,” the creative team tried a bit too hard for Thirties-style creepiness and wound up with something that didn’t quite work. In the second half, writers Toni Graphia & Robbie Thompson and director Roxann Dawson go instead for ALICE IN WONDERLAND-esque trippiness, with better results. The trippiness is mostly […]Read On »

Stars: David Lyons, Keith David, Summer Glau, James Frain, Jennifer Ferrin, Ryan Wynott, Dorian Missick, Martin Klebba, Tom Noonan, Anil Kumar, Glenn Fitzgerald, Richard Schiff Writer: William Wheeler Director: Karen Gaviola Network: NBC, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: February 14, 2011 THE CAPE generally does a good job of maintaining a sense of comic book integrity, balancing the genre’s conventions without tipping over into things that don’t work. However, in “The Lich Pt. 1,” a cliffhanger that will resolve next week, the attempt to do Fifties-style horror falls short. The reason for this is that unless the viewer hasn’t checked […]Read On »
