HUMANS has its two-hour Season 2 finale on AMC on Monday, March 20. The drama deals with a near future in which Synths, human-looking androids, work for humans in almost every aspect of life. However, some of the Synths are self-aware, with real emotions and needs and, arguably, souls. Gemma Chan (FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM, the upcoming TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT) plays Mia, a Synth who was created in England to serve as a mother figure for the half-human, half-Synth Leo (Colin Morgan). In the first season, Mia started out with her “self” turned off, but she […]Read On »

In Netflix’s JESSICA JONES, Carrie-Anne Moss plays uber-lawyer Jeri Hogarth. Hogarth is the employer of the super-strong title character, who’s played by Krysten Ritter. Hogarth is also truly ruthless, a trait that is its own kind of superpower in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Moss appears as Hogarth in an episode of the second season of DAREDEVIL; she and Ritter both reprise their characters in the Netflix multi-Marvel-superheroes series THE DEFENDERS, which is currently shooting. Moss, who shot to fame as Trinity in the MATRIX films, appeared on the big screen earlier this year in the horror film THE BYE BYE […]Read On »

CD Review: THE MATRIX RELOADED (Limited Edition) soundtrack

THE MATRIX RELOADED: LIMITED EDITION soundtrack | ©2013 La La Land Records

When THE MATRIX appeared in 1999, Don Davis’ score was one of those thunderbolt game changers that pretty much re-wrote the book on sci-fi scoring. Taking the already revolutionary approach of such modern classicist-to-film composers as John Corigliano (ALTERED STATES) and Elliot Goldenthal (ALIEN 3) into the computer reality of bullet time kung fu action, Davis’ use of high-tech electronics and a distorted, brass orchestral writing was a kick-ass head trip that created an oppressively thrilling sense of darkness and defiance against the future’s robot overlords. Davis’ fusion of melody and musical sound design was a classic in every sense […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: VEGAS star Carrie-Anne Moss rolls the dice

On VEGAS, CBS Friday nights at 9 PM, it’s 1960 and the Mob and glamour are both hitting town. This is a problem for rancher-turned-sheriff Ralph Lamb (Dennis Quaid), who in turn is making life a little rough forChicago businessman/casino owner Vincent Savino (Michael Chiklis). Carrie-Anne Moss’ character Katherine O’Connell keeps tabs on both men, though her relationship with Lamb is considerably less adversarial than her encounters with Savino. Canadian-born Moss will forever be revered by science-fiction fans for her portrayal of martial arts-savvy heroine Trinity in the three MATRIX films. Other feature credits include FIDO, DISTURBIA and Christopher Nolan’s […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Obama Wins!” – Season Finale

Cartman in SOUTH PARK - Season 16 finale - "Obama Wins!" | ©2012 Comedy Central

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: November 7, 2012 As SOUTH PARK winds down Season 16, the series hits a homerun with its season finale “Obama Wins!” Since this episode was pretty much done before the outcome of the Presidential election was announced, creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone could have been tempting fate with its proclamation and storyline of an Obama win or would have had to do an “alternate ending” of some sort if the Presidential election went in Mitt Romney’s direction. Regardless, “Obama Wins!” is one of the funniest […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “A Scause for Applause”

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: October 31, 2012 After two strong weeks, SOUTH PARK heads back into iffy territory with “A Scause for Applause”, a failed attempt at dealing with the disgrace of Lance Armstrong for using performance enhancing drugs. In the SOUTH PARK version, everyone wearing “What Would Jesus Do” bracelets decides to cut them off when it’s discovered that Jesus used performance enhancement drugs to perform his miracles. This leads to a dilemma with Stan, who decides he’s not going to cut off his bracelet like everyone else – […]Read On »

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: October 24, 2012 It’s been some time since SOUTH PARK has done a Halloween episode, but it was worth the wait as Trey Parker and Matt Stone come up with a new classic with “A Nightmare on Facetime.” Sending up THE SHINING, Blockbuster Video’s financial woes, The Avengers and our obsession with Apple products, there’s enough good will here to provide ample laughs and a great story to boot. When Stan’s dad Randy comes home and says the family is going to be rich because he […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Going Native”

Butters gets some bad news from his parents in SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Going Native” | ©2012 Comedy Central Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: October 18, 2012 Often times SOUTH PARK tries so hard to be topical and “parody” things all the time, that you begin to expect parodies even when there is none. And sometimes, when they are sending something up – it can get quite obscure and then you feel like a complete idiot for not even getting the point of the episode. “Go Native” is one […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Insecurity”

Ike and Kyle thing the UPS man is having sex with their mom in SOUTH PARK - Season 16 - "Insecurity" | ©2012 Comedy Central

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: October 10, 2012 Sadly SOUTH PARK seems to be struggling during the latter half of Season 16. Joining the awful “Sarastaball” is the latest episode “Insecurity” – a painfully unfunny exercise in randomness. I sense Trey Parker and Matt Stone are trying for some commentary on how fearful the nation has become since the Colorado shootings at THE DARK KNIGHT RISES screening, but it just doesn’t really work. Things kick off when Ike sees a UPS man having sex with his mom (what he doesn’t know […]Read On »
