In Season 2 of AMC’s HALT AND CATCH FIRE, Sundays at 10 PM, we’ve jumped from 1982 to 1985. Lee Pace’s Machiavellian manager Joe MacMillan has returned to Texas, where Scoot McNairy’s Gordon Clark now heads up the computer development department of manufacturing firm Cardiff Electric. Gordon’s wife Donna, played by Kerry Bishe, also a code writer, has jumped ship to work at the Mutiny multiplayer game company founded by former Cardiff employee Cameron Howe (Mackenzie Davis). If Bishe and McNairy look like they belong together as a couple, that’s already occurred to others – the two actors were previously […]Read On »

GODZILLA movie poster | ©2014 Warner Bros.

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, Ken Watanabe, David Strathairn, Sally Hawkins Writer: Max Borenstein, story by Dave Callaham, based on the character created by Toho Studios Director: Gareth Edwards Distributor: Warner Bros. Release Date: May 16, 2014 No movie can be all things to all people, but GODZILLA would seem to have an especially rough time in this regard. The original 1954 Japanese film GOJIRA is about a giant monster that arises and decimates cities in response to the testing of nuclear weapons. The message was sincere, but the effect (if it ever wasn’t) is now […]Read On »

Calliope Reaper-Jones started as the title character in Amber Benson’s first solo novel DEATH’S DAUGHTER as a young New Yorker very reluctantly grappling with her supernatural heritage.

Exclusive Interview: UGLY AMERICANS creator Devin Clark reveals the Season 2 dark side of New York City

The world of New York City is not what it seems in the Comedy Central animated series UGLY AMERICANS (which has its second season premiere tonight). In the hilariously bizarre series (which features animation in the EC Comics vein), Mark Lilly is our hero – a social worker for the Department of Integration who has to deal with zombies, demons and wizards on a regular basis. The key to UGLY AMERICANS success is it plays everything very seriously, deriving the comedy out of the outlandish situations surrounding our hero. Creator Devin Clark spoke with ASSIGNMENT X this week in an […]Read On »

CD Review: MONSTERS soundtrack

MONSTERS soundtrack | ©2011 Vertigo Media Limited

The best electronic-heavy sci-fi scores like John Murphy’s SUNSHINE and David Holmes’ CODE 46 transport you to a place that’s far more about hallucinogenic chill than it about bug-eyed creatures, or gigantic tentacled ones in this movie’s case. MONSTERS stands as the most conversely beautiful, acid trip scoring done for a title like this, as rock synthesist Jon Hopkins takes the cool grooves he gave to Massive Attack and Brian Eno (particularly on his LOVELY BONES score) and applies them to a soundtrack that’s about learning to understand the enemy, if not necessarily making peace with them. Never once descending […]Read On »

Cast: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Jim Beaver Director: Mike Rohl Writer: Brett Matthews Network: The CW, airs Fridays Original Telecast: March 4, 2011 Well that’s one way to get rid of a host of characters in one fell swoop on SUPERNATURAL. Not only did we lose Gwen (Jessica Heafey) and Samuel (Mitch Pileggi), who had become major characters this season, in “And Then There Were None” we also lost long-time hunter ally in Rufus (Steven Williams) – a fan favorite and someone that had grown to be a quirky yet funny occasional guest star. Eve, whom the monsters […]Read On »

Cast: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Jim Beaver, Misha Collins Writers: Eric. C. Charmelo, Nicole Snyder Director: Jennot Szwarc Network: The CW, airs Fridays Original Telecast: February 18, 2010 I mean really, what other show, besides SUPERNATURAL could get away with the title of this week’s episode of “Mannequin 3: The Reckoning”? I wonder how many viewers of the show, and for the matter readers of this article, realize that MANNEQUIN was a terrible ’80s movie starring Andrew McCarthy and a young Kim Cattrall. It scared the crap out of me. No, not because it is a horror movie (in fact, […]Read On »

Cast: Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Lance Reddick, Jasika Nicole Writers: Glen Whitman, Robert Chiapetta Directors: Thomas Yatsko Network: Fox, airs Fridays Original Telecast: February 18, 2010 “Ghosts, that’s where you draw the line?” – Peter (Joshua Jackson) on FRINGE “6B” Is love strong enough to cross universes? Can one husband from one universe and one wife from another be in the exact same time having lost their partners and then somehow cross the streams to see each other? That was the idea behind “6B” on FRINGE this week, another relatively non-eventful creature-of-the-week episode, however, essential in mending the […]Read On »
