Madam Secretary Season 3 Episode 7 Review: Tectonic Shift

21 November 2016 2:12 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

"Yet again, I give you my personal maxim: Everybody should be in therapy, always.

Okay, the always may be taking it a tad far, but seriously, if Will didn't prove my point on Madam Secretary Season 3 Episode 7, I don't know what would. His guilt was understandable. But carrying it around for at least 20 years? Yikes. 

Of course, he wasn't the only one that could have benefited from some time on the proverbial couch. Nadine's anxiety over meeting with Arabelle was interfering with her life in a way that was not healthy. At least Elizabeth was able to keep things together during the crisis du jour. 

The flashback and Will's subsequent revelation about keeping a secret from his big sister certainly did a lot to explain both his relationship with Elizabeth and his relationship with, well, everybody. Not that it took a genius to figure out that he had a hero complex and abandonment issues. »

Madam Secretary Sneak Peek: Will Is Back! (But Maybe Not For Long?)

19 November 2016 2:30 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

You can’t keep a good man down. Or, apparently, in the United States.

In this exclusive sneak peek at Sunday’s Madam Secretary (CBS, 9/8c), Elizabeth’s brother Will (played by series executive producer Eric Stoltz) pays his sister a visit. Everything’s on track for him to settle down with a job at Walter Reed Medical Center in Maryland (and help his struggling marriage in the process).

Madam Secretary Season 3 Episode 6 Review: The Statement

13 November 2016 7:13 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Finding the words doesn't always come easy.

And just because someone stays silent doesn't mean that they don't have a lot of feelings about a topic. Speech writer Matt struggled to find a balance on Madam Secretary Season 3 Episode 6 when he came under suspicion and attack on the very thinnest of connections.

I was nervous going into "The Statement," for a lot of reasons. Episodes about major terrorist bombings and mass shootings always give me a bit of unease since fictional events get preempted by real tragedy all too often. Madam Secretary wasn't just addressing the act of violence, but the societal fallout.

And the original airing came after a week of unrest brewing across the United States. Art imitates life imitates art imitates life... it feels like a terrible uroboros sometimes. 

So I was pleasantly surprised by the care with which the writers handled the topic.

Nadine: Any one »

Back To The Future: take a look at these studio notes

30 August 2016 10:25 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Aug 31, 2016

Back To The Future was a project not without studio interference and 'ideas' - just take a look at this memo for proof...

A contender in our book for one of the best films of all time (yep, we’ll take that debate on), Back To The Future – at 31 years old – remains a glorious, pretty much perfect piece of entertainment. But, as those who are aware of its background well know, it could have turned out a lot different. Eric Stoltz could have been Marty McFly. The character of the Doc could have been a lot different. And the notes from Universal Studios chief at the time – Sid Sheinberg – could have been taken into account.

You may have seen these before, but we suspect many of you haven’t. Thus, if you want to get a glimpse at what studio notes looked like in the 1980s, and »

‘Fringe’ predicted ‘Batman v Superman.’ Will it be right about ‘Indiana Jones’?

17 August 2016 6:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Spoilers for Fringe ahead. Mindy Kaling predicted the female cast-led Ghostbusters. Did Fringe predict another 2016 blockbuster (or blockbuster wannabe)? Fringe fanatics are well aware of what Over There’s Back to the Future looked like (a lot less Michael J. Fox and a lot more Eric Stoltz and probably a lot less iconic). A movie theater marquee advertising that alternate universe version of Back to the Future prominently filled the frame of a shot in mid-season 2 episode “Peter,” set in 1985. But some Fringe fans may not have noticed or remembered the marquee that appeared in the season 2 finale. Turns out a re-watch of that game-changer finale, “Over There: Part 2,” which aired in 2010, reveals a marquee tucked in the corner of a shot that’ll get a chuckle out of anyone in 2016 Over Here. Those airship-flying bastards. They actually got a decent DC superhero-vs.-superhero movie (or two!). I assume. »

Comic-Con 2016 Interview: Thom Mathews & John Philbin Reflect on The Return Of The Living Dead

3 August 2016 1:05 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The upcoming 30th anniversary of Tarman and his voracious appetite for brains was recently celebrated by Scream Factory in their Collector’s Edition Blu-ray release of The Return of the Living Dead. While the special Blu-ray was featured at San Diego Comic-Con, I had the honor of sitting down with cast members Thom Mathews and John Philbin to look back at the making of the beloved movie, including their experiences working with Dan O’Bannon, the extensive rehearsal period, visits to the set by George Clooney and Eric Stoltz, and much more.

When you guys were making this movie, did you have any idea that it would go on to have this kind of legacy and dedicated fanbase?

John Philbin: We were just happy to get a job because there was a strike and it was hot and it was the summer. All the people liked Dan O’Bannon, »

The top 25 films of Jeff Daniels

5 July 2016 3:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Dan Cooper Jul 8, 2016

From Dumb & Dumber and The Martian, through to Arachnophobia and Steve Jobs - we salute the screen work of Jeff Daniels...

They say that when you play the Game of Thrones, “you win or you die”. The Game of Jeff Daniels, however, is an undeniably different beast and for the most part is a definite “you win or you win”. After viewing dozens of Jeff Daniels movies and spending many, many hours with his on-screen personas, it’s fair to say that the maxim has been sorely tested but guess what? It still holds true. This list has been carefully curated to celebrate the veteran actor’s talent, versatility and wit and no matter which (if any) of these movies you decide to revisit or check out for the first time, Jeff is guaranteed to give you something to love in each and every one.

25. Dumb And Dumber To (2014)

‘Pretty in Pink’ at 30: The Best and Worst Films of John Hughes

26 February 2016 2:32 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Before movies like “Say Anything” and “Perks of Being a Wallflower,” and TV shows like “Dawson’s Creek” and “My So Called Life,” John Hughes’ classic high school romance “Pretty in Pink” dared to depict teenage love with a poignancy and truthfulness that felt both natural and wildly sentimental. Released on February 28, 1986, it remains one of Hughes’ most beloved movies. On the 30th anniversary of “Pretty in Pink,” here’s a look back at John Hughes’ 10 finest films, plus five that didn’t quite make the grade.

The Best…

10) Uncle Buck (1989)

John Candy played the title role of a lovable oaf whose babysitting skills are put to the test in this lightweight yet undeniably funny family comedy. The fifth of eight Hughes films in which he appeared, Candy showed winning chemistry with 9-year old Macaulay Culkin in what remains a career highlight. Though a 1990 “Uncle Buck” sitcom starring Kevin Meaney »

30 Things You Might Not Know About Pretty in Pink, 30 Years Later

24 February 2016 11:30 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Pretty in Pink isn't just a good '80s movie. It isn't just a good teen movie. And it isn't just a good romantic movie. It's just a good movie, period. The John Hughes classic first hit theaters on Feb. 28, 1986, and it turns 30 years old this weekend. The film featured Molly Ringwald as Andie, a high school student whose style belies her working class roots. She's captured the eye of seemingly every guy in school - among them, preppy dreamboat Blane (Andrew McCarthy) and her little hipster buddy, Duckie (Jon Cryer). And the process of Ringwald's character trying to figure »

BFI Review – Pulp Fiction (1994)

17 January 2016 8:35 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Pulp Fiction, 1994.

Directed by Quentin Tarantino.

Starring Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta, Bruce Willis, Uma Thurman, Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth and Rosanna Arquette.

Synopsis:

Three stories play out in expert fashion in La, with drugs, money and guns all at play in Quentin Tarantino’s incredible second film.

It truly is a testament to Pulp Fiction how it remains a timeless joy to watch on every viewing, over twenty years after it’s 1994 release. That definitive shot of Travolta and Jackson, two guns raised, is the iconic image Banksy decided to parody, replacing guns with bananas. The soundtrack, stuffed with songs eternally attached to Tarantino’s second film, include the standout ‘Pulp Fiction’ track, Miserlou. “Royale with cheese”, “Ezekial 25:7”, “Zed’s Dead Baby, Zed’s Dead” – endlessly quotable lines, reinforcing how poetic and punchy Tarantino’s writing can be. It’s laid back sloucher’s, donning dressing gowns and »
