Not sure why they gave us this episode as the send-off for FRINGE in 2010. In fact, I’d go as far as to say this fall finale ended in a whimper rather than a bang. Instead of ending it last week with the blowout episode where both Olivias (Anna Torv) swapped sides once again. We were given just a run-of-the-mill mad scientist episode in “Marionette.”

CD Review: SKYLINE soundtrack

If you’re doing a DIY, apartment-set riff on ID4 for the sum of 10 million dollars, then trying to make your production look like it cost 10 times that, you’d better have a score as big as your ambitions. Thankfully, the effects wizard Strause brothers have Matthew Margeson unleashing the big orchestral guns for their unfairly maligned, and thoroughly entertaining gonzo sci-fi pic. With mad action skills learned during a career whose highlights range from assisting Klaus Badelt on CONSTANTINE, to arranging KICK-ASS and programming synths for ANGELS AND DEMONS, Margeson now has his own major debut to apply all […]Read On »

Is it possible to both love and hate Olivia (Anna Torv) in the same show? Anna Torv is sure making it so with her Season Three turn in FRINGE, quite possibly the best show on TV right now (with THE WALKING DEAD and SUPERNATURAL in that same group). And by that same token, is it possible to cheer for Broyles (Lance Reddick) in both universes? Yes. And the more we learn about “over there” the more we find out that they are not unlike “over here” more and more. Broyles is the biggest case in point.

It is a shame more people aren’t watching FRINGE. Since moving to Thursdays last year, the show has steadily declined in ratings. I like to believe it is because of the heated competition rather than the fact people have lost interest in the show. Seriously, how could anyone lose interest in this show? Week-after-week it continues to amaze and deliver the goods. This season especially has been quite enjoyable with the show alternating between the two universes each with their own perils and monsters. Granted, the monsters “over here” have been mostly generated from the bad guys “over there” trying […]Read On »

Movie Review: MONSTERS

MONSTERS is an inventive low-budget blend of science-fiction, horror, character study and political parable. It hits this last aspect a bit hard, but otherwise, it’s very entertaining. Director/writer Gareth Edwards admirably avoids the one-two-three-something-jumps-out-of-the-dark scares common to creature features in favor of a steady sense of tension. The film has the “what-if?” factor of DISTRICT 9, the giant entities wreaking havoc of CLOVERFIELD, the astonishing natural splendor of its Mexican/Central American locations and the soul of a low-budget indie.
