The body in question is reportedly lab-grown, […]Read On »

UNDER THE DOME (based on the novel by Stephen King) was such a big hit last summer that CBS decided to make it a returning summer series. Who was not rooting for everyone in the town of Chester’s Mill and booing the character portrayed by Dean Morris, James ‘Big Jim’ Rennie? We got a chance to catch up with Dean at the CBS Summer Press Day cocktail party at The London Hotel to talk about his character and see if I could pry any secrets about the new season which debuts Monday, June 30 on CBS and is written by […]Read On »

Cast: Dean Norris, Rachelle Lefevre, Alexander Koch, Mike Vogel, Natalie Martinez, Aisha Hinds, Jolene Purdy, Britt Robinson Writer: Brian K. Vaughn, Scott Gold Director: Jack Bender Network: CBS, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Sept. 16, 2013 Considering UNDER THE DOME already got renewed by CBS for presumably a return in the summer of 2014, the producers apparently thought they could go out with a defined whimper instead of anything resembling a proper cliffhanger season finale. The season finale of the show, entitled “Curtains,” was a complete mess. Whereas the previous last four episodes have actually improved the show […]Read On »

At today’s CBS Summer TCA press tour, CBS Corporation President and Chief Executive Officer Leslie Moonves announced that the hit Stephen King summer series UNDER THE DOME will return again next summer. “It’s official, and Stephen King will be writing the first episode of that 13-episode arc,” says Moonves. “We’re really proud of  what UNDER THE DOME has done. It sort of changed the face of summer television. The highest premiere of a drama, since, I think, 1992. It’s the way television should be. It’s the way television can be. Obviously it’s a very different model.” With summer programming being […]Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Pena, Anna Kendrick, America Ferrara, Cody Horn, Natalie Martinez, Frank Grillo Writer: David Ayer Director: David Ayer Distributor: Open Road Films Release Date: September 21, 2012 END OF WATCH is an entertaining, mostly solid buddy cop drama. Director/writer David Ayer for some reason has elected to show the bulk of it through video cameras – both the police and the criminals have them – which doesn’t seem to serve any purpose. In horror movies, this format can allow for a particular type of tension and storytelling, but here, everything could just as easily (and […]Read On »
