Rating: PG-13 Stars: Hera Helmar, Robert Sheehan, Hugo Weaving, Jihae Kim, Stephen Lang, Leila George, Ronan Raftery, Patrick Malahide, Kee Chan, Colin Salmon, Andrew Lees Writers: Fran Walsh & Philippa Boyens & Peter Jackson, based on the novel by Philip Reeve Director: Christian Rivers Distributor: Universal Release Date: December 14, 2018 MORTAL ENGINES is such an eyeful that the visuals easily overwhelm the serviceable if fairly familiar plot. The movie, based on the novel by Philip Reeve, is advertised as being from “the producers of LORD OF THE RINGS.” This is true, and it’s also got the same writing team: […]Read On »

MARS - Season 2 Key Art |©2018 National Geographic

MARS has its second season premiere on National Geographic Monday, November 12. The series, executive produced by Brian Grazer and Ron Howard, is an unusual blend of scripted drama and documentary footage as it tells of the first colony on Mars. Actors portray scientists and colonists, whose adventures are intercut with interviews with real scientists and astronauts. Documentary coverage of clashes between science and industry in areas like the Arctic Circle are contrasted with similar imagined conflicts on the Red Planet. JiHae (pronounced JEE-hay) portrays twin sisters Hana and Joon Seung. Hana is an American pilot and systems engineer on […]Read On »

TOGETHERNESS Star Melanie Lynskey Talks her new HBO series – interview

In HBO’s new half-hour TOGETHERNESS, Sundays at 9:30 PM, Melanie Lynskey plays Michelle Pierson. Michelle is a mother of two who starts to examine her marriage when her sister (Amanda Peet) and her husband’s best friend (Steve Zissis) move in with the family. The naturalistic tone of TOGETHERNESS, created by independent feature filmmakers/brothers Jay Duplass and Mark Duplass (who plays Michelle’s husband Brett) is distinctly different from the raucous high style of CBS’ TWO AND A HALF MEN, which Lynskey has recurred on for over a decade as Rose, devoted stalker and possibly murderer of Charlie Sheen’s character Charlie. Lynskey, […]Read On »

Since its release in 1982, E.T. THE EXTRATERRESTRIAL has become – both artistically and commercially – the gold standard for the oft-referred-to, seldom truly applicable “film for all ages.” Directed and produced by Steven Spielberg and written by Melissa Mathison, the film is the story of a little alien who becomes separated from his exploratory team and is helped in his quest to go home, first by grade-schooler Elliott (Henry Thomas), and eventually by Elliott’s entire family, including older brother Michael (Robert MacNaughton), little sister Gertie (Drew Barrymore) and single mother Mary, played by Dee Wallace. To commemorate E.T.’s thirtieth […]Read On »

Liam McIntyre in SPARTACUS: VENGEANCE | ©2012 Starz

Starz Network’s SPARTACUS series, Friday nights at 10 PM, has gone through almost as many tribulations as its legendary hero. The first season, SPARTACUS: BLOOD AND SAND, starred Andy Whitfield as the Thracian warrior sent into slavery and trained as a gladiator, only to turn on his master and free his fellows. Then Whitfield was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and the production company did a prequel season, SPARTACUS: GODS OF THE ARENA, while waiting for Whitfield to recover. Sadly, Whitfield’s cancer returned. He gave his blessing to the producers to recast the role and passed away in September 2011. Liam […]Read On »
