Bruce Boxleitner is sitting in an empty function room at the Beverly Hilton, giving one on one interviews during the Television Critics Association press tour. He takes a throat lozenge, explaining that he’s fending off a cold. “I was down at Comic-Con – that’s why I’m just totally fatigued, I never stopped for four days, and then flew right to Canada and went to work. So these are good problems to have.” Boxleitner is famed for his work in science-fiction films and TV – he’s the title character (and his human doppelganger Alan Bradley) in TRON and TRON: LEGACY, valiant […]Read On »

CD Review: TRON UPRISING soundtrack

Oft times when the next-big-thing techno / pop artist is brought in to “score” a film, it’s usually a relatively uncredited composer who makes matters musical, not to mention score-like. So if you’re judging by how electrifying Joseph Trapanese’s cue collection from TRON UPRISING from this CGI toon spin-off of Disney’s TRON LEGACY is, then it’s likely you’ll regard him as the real Flynn of this soundtrack grid. Trapanese and Daft Punk evolved Wendy Carlos’ already Avant-garde approach for the original TRON to the next, 21st century level by mixing a monolithic orchestra over state-of-the-art trance and techno club beats, […]Read On »

It stars Zachary Levi, Yvonne Strahovski, Joshua Gomez and Adam Baldwin, and at Comic-Con 2011 today, while speaking to the press, the stars and creators spoke about the comedy spy series that always seems to evade eternal cancellation by NBC. For co-creator Chris Fedak, the ending is bittersweet, but they have a lot of ammo so the season will end with a big bang even as the show makes some major changes including having Chuck now owning the Buy […]Read On »

TV Review: FUTURAMA – Season 6B – “Silence of the Clamps”

FUTURAMA - Season 6B - "Silence of the Clamps" | Futurama TM and ©2011 Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp. All Rights Reserved

Voices: Billy West, Katey Sagal, John Di Maggio, Tress MacNeille, Maurice LaMarche Writer: Eric Rogers Director: Frank Marino Network: Comedy Central, airs Thursdays Original Telecast: July 14, 2011 Now that was pretty bad. FUTURAMA has been very good this year – particularly last week’s “Law & Oracle” episode, but this week, the show sunk to a surprising low. “Silence of the Clamps” is a complete mess, repeating many themes and story strands from the earlier part of the season and barely providing any actual jokes in the process. When Planet Express has to deliver a package (robot clamps) to a […]Read On »

Exclusive: CHUCK star Zachary Levi talks TRON: LEGACY and what Morgan and Check would have thought about the sequel

Zachary Levi at the World Premiere of TANGLED

Garrett Hedlund in TRON: LEGACY | © 2010 Walt Disney Pictures With CHUCK being a very geek savvy show, and displaying the poster for 1982’s TRON in the room of Chuck Bartowski (Zachary Levi) since Season 1, it was a bit strange not to have any mention of TRON: LEGACY in any of the Season 4 episodes. Granted, Warner Bros. owns CHUCK and Disney owns TRON, but couldn’t there have been a little bit of a crossover? While speaking recently with Levi himself, ASSIGNMENT X asked him about TRON: LEGACY and what Morgan (Joshua Gomez) and Chuck probably thought about […]Read On »
