SHERLOCK is back for its third season on PBS, Sundays at 10 PM, and not a moment too soon. The series, created by Mark Gatiss & Steven Moffat from Arthur Conan Doyle’s detail-oriented British detective character, has been much missed by its fans during the long gap since the end of Season 2, which saw Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock apparently falling to his death from a rooftop, much to the grief of his friend and detecting partner Dr. John Watson (Martin Freeman). Now Sherlock is back – with an explanation of how and why he disappeared for two years and fooled […]Read On »

Here it’s a genocide that’s heard, but rarely witnessed within a young German girl’s sheltered life during World War 2. Such is the devastating, gentle power that speaks volumes for THE BOOK THIEF‘s score as it encapsulates the innocence, first loves and ultimate shock of […]Read On »

Sure man, not to mention Hollywood, had boldly gone before in turning a TV show’s five-year mission into an ongoing cinematic voyage- the first 27 years of which involved its original “classic” cast before the com was handed over to a new generation. But just when that film future seemed to have grown a bit stale, a hotshot named J.J. Abrams leaped into the captain’s chair to reboot the franchise in a way that was as audacious as it was winningly nostalgic with 2009s STAR TREK. Taking the beloved crewmates back to their beginnings with a surfeit of style and […]Read On »
