New Game of Thrones Trailer Brings on the Great War

The newest season of Game of Thrones is on the horizon and from this trailer, it would seem the forecast is war. Lots and lots of war. The Great War, as Jon Snow calls it in the trailers final moments. There was a big focus in this trailer of what is coming for the women of Game of Thrones as the Khaleesi arrives in Westeros, Sansa has poison dripped in her ear by Littlefinger, Cersei is surrounded by enemies, and Arya is on the warpath. We see a fleeting glimpse of Jaime and Tyrion, and Davos gets a bit...

Doctor Who: Extremis

DOCTOR WHO – SEASON 10 EPISODE 06 EXTREMIS WRITTEN BY STEVEN MOFFAT DIRECTED BY DANIEL NETTHEIM So the Doctor is blind and the vault might be/could be/should be opening by now. It’s possible the BBC had a huge reveal that they’ve spoilt for no reason or maybe they’re smarter than that and it’s all a bait and switch. Let’s find out. Recap: We open “a long time ago” with an unknown character giving a voice over about the increasing problem of death and how to kill everyone. He introduces himself as sort some of executioner for all living things and says...

‘Wild at Heart’ is an Adolescent’s Dream and Nightmare

There is a language in dreams and a set of rules. That is why, when we’re dreaming, everything, every weird little thing, seems perfectly normal until we wake up. No other director speaks that language or knows those rules better than David Lynch,  whose career has been built on being able to take dreams and nightmares and translate them perfectly to film. Wild at Heart, his Palme d’Or-winning 1990 film, is very much a dreamer’s movie. It is the story of two young lovers, Sailor and Lula, who run away from her family to travel across America doing nothing but dancing,...

DOCTOR WHO – SEASON 10 EPISODE 05 OXYGEN WRITTEN BY JAMIE MATHIESON DIRECTED BY CHARLES PALMER The trailer for this one had by blood pumping as base under siege episodes are bread and butter Who stories that have a pretty good success rate. Add in the fact that I watched Alien pretty recently and that this season has been pretty much killing it each week, I was beyond ready for this week’s episode. So let’s do it. Recap We open in space and a familiar voice saying familiar words: “Space. The final frontier…” says the Doctor in voice over as two...

B2BO: We3

Book to Box Office: We3 Based On: We3 by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely Expected Release Date: None. Instead, we’re considering how a film version might work. Director: None, though we have a suggestion. Summary: From the publisher: With nervous systems amplified to match their terrifying mechanical exoskeletons, the members of Animal Weapon 3 (WE3) have the firepower of a battalion between them.

Relentlessly pursued by their makers, the WE3 team...

‘Whisky Galore!’ Feels Good, Partially Because It Lacks Conflict

Overview: The Scottish Island of Todday finds their whisky drought broken when a ship carrying thousands of bottles runs aground off their shores. Arrow Films; 2016; Rated PG; 98 minutes.

7 Directors for Masters of the Universe

With the recent news that McG won’t be directing Masters of the Universe (that whooshing noise is the bullet we just dodged), it’s left the movie wide open for someone with talent to step into the breach and make an interesting, big budget, space fantasy extravaganza. For those not in the know, Masters of the Universe is the story of Prince Adam, a man from the planet Eternia, who can turn into He-Man, a super strong, shirtless hero. He, along with a team of quirk-filled, supporting characters must face off against the evil Skeletor. It’s like Star Wars with more...

Doctor Who Recap: Knock Knock

Doctor Who – Season 10 Episode 04 Knock Knock Written by Mike Bartlett Directed by Bill Anderson Another week, another Who. This season is off to a stellar start and hopefully the trend continues with tonight’s episode which seems to be a haunted house story starring Hercule Poiret himself, David Suchet. At this point, the chemistry between Bill and the Doctor would get me through even the worst Doctor Who but let’s hope they keep up this winning streak. Recap We open with Bill and a group of other youngsters going house hunting and looking at a bunch of...

Doctor Who Recap: Thin Ice

DOCTOR WHO – SEASON 10, EPISODE 03 THIN ICE WRITTEN BY SUSAN DOLLARD DIRECTED BY BILL ANDERSON Another week, another Doctor Who episode. So far so good, with this season showing an abundance of energy and fun that was sometimes missing from the other Capaldi seasons. We’ve had something in the present and something in the future, so now it’s time to take Bill into the past. I’m always enjoy a good Doctor Who history adventure so let’s get into it. Recap We open exactly where we closed last episode, on the frozen Thames facing an elephant. They retreat back into...

Jonathan Demme’s ‘Stop Making Sense’ Is THE Best Concert Film

The twin beginnings of my Talking Heads fandom were organic and inorganic. In 1996, I was watching an episode of Muppets Tonight and Kermit performed a version of “Once in a Lifetime” in a giant suit. At the time I thought that it was an original Muppets song and also that it was incredible. It was only later, when I saw the Talking Heads version on VH1, that it clicked for me that the song might have existed before I saw a frog puppet perform it. Oddly enough, VH1 continued my Talking Heads education when their show Pop-Up Video...

I Am The Third Revelation: Daniel Day-Lewis in ‘There Will be Blood’

I don’t know how to play the piano but I understand how I could learn. I could get a book or a teacher and learn what sound each key makes. I could find out their names and the order I would need to play them in to make music. I would need to practice and have discipline and after a while, I would be able to play songs. I would probably never be David Helfgott or Rachmaninoff, but I would be able to sit down and belt out a passable tune if the need arose. Acting, on the other...
