The Strain, Ep. 1.06, “Occultation” finally gets things moving!

18 August 2014 9:40 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Strain, Season 1, Episode 6, “Occultation”

Written by Justin Brit-Gibson

Directed by Peter Weller

Airs Sundays at 10pm Est on FX

This is a flip-flop show. One week it leaves us questioning what went wrong, the next we see its potential all over again. This week is more of the latter as, for lack of a better phrase, the shit hits the fan. Or rather, an eclipse hits New York City and the freaks come out to play. The threat of the coming eclipse adds further tension to the rest of the episode, as we start to wonder who will find safety before the darkness arrives. No one really does.

To be fair, the episode starts off in a typically boring manner as Eph’s wife very predictably and conventionally reacts to Eph’s newfound hero bad boy, fugitive-from-the-law persona by second-guessing her relationship with New Boyfriend (the show has made »

The Strain Review: “Occultation” (Season 1, Episode 6)

17 August 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The total solar eclipse, heavily promoted in The Strain’s advertising, comes to pass in “Occultation,” and with it arrives a heightened sense of impending doom in the series’ New York City. Rats are running through the streets, the strigoi have been busily infecting all in their paths, and government agencies aren’t acknowledging that anything is amiss. “This could be the end of the world,” one radio announcer jokes in the opening minutes.

He’s snarking, of course (The Strain isn’t that cheesy quite yet), but director Peter Weller does a terrific job of building tension throughout the episode, imbuing a barely perceptible sense of menace that grows increasingly pronounced as the eclipse, and subsequent bloodletting, begins. “Occultation” is also helped by its script, which noticeably hastens the pace.

After fleeing the FBI last week to avoid answering questions about Captain Redfern’s death, Eph finds himself a hunted man. »

‘The Strain’, Ep. 1.05, “Runaways” embraces mediocrity, maybe?

11 August 2014 6:15 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Strain, Season 1, Episode 5, “Runaways”

Written by Gennifer Hutchison

Directed by Peter Weller

Airs Sundays at 10pm Est on FX

As Joseph Heller wrote in Catch-22, “Some men are born mediocre, some men achieve mediocrity, and some men have mediocrity thrust upon them.” The Strain is difficult to categorize. The cynical part of me thinks it was born mediocre and I’ve just been expecting too much from it. Perhaps this was always where we would end up, with Holocaust flashbacks and a sense that this isn’t what we signed up for.

Another, small part still sees the potential. The closest parallel we can think of is American Horror Story, a show that practically defies anyone to actually review it on a weekly basis and be able to make heads or tails of what just happened. Was it bad, was it good, does it even matter? The Strain is »

Spoiler The Strain Season 1 Episode 5 Runaways Review and Summary

11 August 2014 3:34 PM, PDT | Best-Horror-Movies.com | See recent Best-Horror-Movies.com news »

Early looks of the fifth episode of The Strain produce a glimpse of rocker Gabriel as he feasts on one of his eager young groupies. Hes undergone the full change and hes prepared to devour those surrounding him as he isnt really Gabriel anymore. Hes a monster capable of grisly acts like this. While Gabriel is feeding in walks his manager who gets a clean shot of the gruesome scene. Fans get punched in the face with a certifiably sinister launch this episode (directed by Robocop himself Peter Weller) and its a mighty fine kick off indeed. »

Watch: Jax Gets Some Sweet Revenge In Trailer For Seventh And Final Season Of 'Sons Of Anarchy'

11 August 2014 12:25 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

First fans of FX’s popular biker gang series "Sons of Anarchy" exulted in a skull-tastic teaser poster, and now they can rejoice in the first trailer for the seventh and final season. The brief trailer focuses on Jax’s (Charlie Hunnam) thirst for revenge and his struggles to keep his club together. As usual, the show promises plenty of drama, gunplay, all kinds of badassery and of course, bikes. Lots and lots of bikes. Aside from Hunnam (check out his turn as the mild-mannered English college student in Judd Apatow’s short-lived series "Undeclared"), show regulars Kim Coates, Tommy Flanagan, Drea de MatteoPeter Weller and a newly dirty blonde  Katey Sagal and her look all return. In light of Sagal and Ed O’Neill’s recent resurgence on TV and a decade of high profile projects from Christina Applegate, who’s finally going to show David Faustino some love? »

Boom!’s ‘Robocop’ #1 and #2 are the best ‘Robocop’ sequels we’ve ever gotten

10 August 2014 10:58 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As everyone knows, Paul Verhoeven’s Robocop is a science fiction classic, but after two terrible sequels and a middle-of-the-road reboot, the character hasn’t had much success outside the initial film. Thankfully things may be changing with Boom! Studios’ new ongoing Robocop series by writer Joshua Williamson and artist Carlos Magno.

Taking place directly after the events of the original film and ignoring everything else that came after, the series’ first arc revolves around a newly released convict named Killian, who reenters the dilapidated Detroit to find everyone’s favorite cyborg cop battling the city’s worst. Killian is not a run-of-the-mill criminal, though. He is smart and cunning and his first plan of action is to turn the public against Robocop, who is still relatively new to the world.

What Williamson gets so right in the first two issues of the comic is the voice and tone of the original film. »

Screening Abel Ferrara’s Director’s Cut of Cat Chaser

28 July 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

After Cat Chaser, Abel Ferrera was reluctant to give up final cut again, not without a fight anyways. The erotic thriller’s 1989 theatrical release, complete with a clunky voiceover ghosted by another actor because leading hunk Peter Weller refused, has a fundamentally different character from Ferrera’s director’s cut currently housed in the basement at Anthology Film Archives. Last Tuesday, Anthology screened the only known copy, on video with time code, a rough audio mix, and without a score, for the first time maybe ever since it played on the Fox lot to studio bigwigs in the ’80s. That’s the last […] »

Shane Black, who made his reputation writing Lethal Weapon for producer Joel Silver and Warner Bros., has decided that he’s not too old for this shit.

After striking it big again as a director of last summer’s Iron Man 3, Black has re-partnered with Silver and Warner Bros. for a project he co-wrote with Anthony Bagarozzi titled The Nice Guys. And he’s landed some pretty nice guys to play the two L.A. detectives investigating the mysterious suicide of a 1970s porn star: Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe.

In June, the Wrap initially reported that the long-in-development project was falling into place, »

Stan Winston Week: Celebrating Leviathan with Ernie Hudson, Tom Woodruff Jr. & Exclusive Photo Gallery

For the second day of our Stan Winston Week celebration, I wanted to shine the spotlight on another monster movie that I’ve always enjoyed, but it never seemed to get as much love as I thought it should- George P. CosmatosLeviathan. It’s a movie that wasn’t perfect by any means, but it was endlessly entertaining all the same, featuring a top-notch ensemble and tons of wonderfully weird and creepy creature effects created by Winston and his team of artists.

Starring Peter Weller, Richard Crenna, Daniel Stern, Ernie Hudson, Amanda Pays, Hector Elizondo, Meg Foster, Michael Carmine and Lisa Eilbacher, Leviathan was released in theaters everywhere on March 17, 1989 and took a respectable second place for the weekend, right behind Chevy Chase’s Fletch Lives. It only stayed in theaters for a total of three weeks, but still managed to haul in over $15 million during that run, which »
