Under the Dome Stars Talk Penetration, Tease Finale's Literal (?) Cliffhanger

4 August 2014 8:15 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Over the course of the second half of Season 2, CBS’ Under the Dome will uncork big secrets about its titular mystery — and in a way that will propel the narrative into any possible third season.

Visiting TVLine’s San Diego Comic-Con suite last week, Season 2 noob Eddie Cahill teased of the coming reveals, “The Dome is not as impenetrable as we thought,” perhaps alluding to the tunnel discovered in the latest episode. Cahill also said that the otherworldly barrier’s roots will be unearthed, dating back to Pac-Man and Donkey Kong era. »

Numb3rs Peter MacNicol Joins CSI: Cyber

2 August 2014 7:29 AM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

The CSI beast is going strong still. CBS announced another series regular for the upcoming CSI: Cyber, which is Peter MacNicol. He was previously on CBS’ Numb3rs and legal show Ally McBeal. His role, Assistant Director Stavros Sifter will be the FBI supervisor who is also an insider that has made it his whole career. He will be playing the boss to Patricia Arquette. The series is expected to be a mid-season replacement during the mid season break next year. Peter has yet to address the subject of his new role.

I have always loved the CSI series and I love that they are taking on the cyber subject. It will certainly be a good one and perhaps it should have been done a long time ago. I suppose it is better late than never, but it does make you wonder where their minds are when they decide what shows to create? »

Peter MacNicol Joins ‘CSI: Cyber’ as Series Regular

Peter MacNicol has joined “CSI: Cyber” as a series regular, CBS announced Friday.

MacNicol will play Assistant Director Stavros Sifter, a career FBI insider and supervisor of Special Agent Avery Ryan for the Cyber Crime Division in Washington, D.C. Sifter quickly rose up the ranks and positioned himself in a job where he is the clearing house between FBI Cyber and all other branches of government. He is a shrewd and savvy networker; a charmer with a hint of malice. Drilling down to the core of his “Classified” status, Sifter knows what very few know behind the closed doors of the U.S. Government. The social networks and devices we use on a daily basis are the Government’s way of monitoring its citizens domestically and abroad — therefore, Sifter has the impossible task of controlling the amplification of cyber crime in an era where the collective world communicates electronically. »

Review: "Sophie's Choice" (1982) Starring Meryl Streep, Shout! Factory Blu-ray Release

5 July 2014 3:08 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Meryl’S Masterpiece

By Raymond Benson

In 1982, Meryl Streep had already made a big splash in the motion picture industry, having won a Supporting Actress Oscar for 1979’s Kramer vs. Kramer, and securing a Supporting Actress nomination prior to that for 1978’s The Deer Hunter and a Best Actress nomination for 1981’s The French Lieutenant’s Woman. With Sophie’s Choice, the actress snapped up the Best Actress Oscar pretty much without a contest—everyone knew that if she didn’t win, then a terrible crime had been committed by the Academy. In short, in this reviewer’s opinion, Streep’s performance in Sophie’s Choice is one of the greatest pieces of acting ever presented on the silver screen. Period. Since then, Streep has gone on to prove, over and over, that she is arguably the most talented actress in the history of cinema, but Sophie remains her masterpiece. »

What Great Scenes Came Out of Bad Movies?

19 June 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

This week marked the 25th anniversary of Ghostbusters II, a sequel that very few people consider to be a good movie. Some us, though, don't mind watching it for a few favorite moments, some of them involving Peter MacNicol, some involving Bill Murray, some involving Rick Moranis, some involving the river of slime. There are genuinely great bits in what's otherwise a mediocre comedy, and that's something that happens a lot.  Those gold nuggets wrapped in a ball of crap can be the stuff that makes a guilty pleasure, but when they're really notable is when we can't even use them to defend the bigger picture. It's one thing to totally enjoy, say, Howard the Duck (as I do), but it's another to only appreciate Jeffrey Jones's performance in the...

6 Scenes We Love From ‘Ghostbusters II’

16 June 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

A lot of people went to see Ghostbusters II on its opening weekend 25 years ago, enough to break a box office record (that would be surpassed a week later with the release of Batman). Of course it was hugely anticipated. Ghostbusters was already a classic after only five years, and thanks in part to a Saturday morning cartoon spin-off and toys and other merchandising, kids especially couldn’t wait to see Peter, Ray, Egon, Winston and, of course, Slimer back on the big screen. But it was a huge disappointment for most fans. The plot was too much of a repeat of the original, the cast didn’t give it their all and worst of all it wasn’t very funny, so said — and still say — its biggest critics. Well, I was only 12 at the time and sufficiently satisfied. Already obsessed then by how New York City is represented in cinema, I »

Dragonslayer

8 June 2014 10:00 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Director Matthew Robbins' gothic fairytale is the missing link between the stop-motion animation of Ray Harryhausen and the super-real imagery of contemporary CGI. Thanks to special effects master Phil Tippett's "go motion" techniques, Dragonslayer's dragon, a lithesome bat-like creature that terrorizes the medieval kingdom of Urland, is uncannily natural. The movie's overall design is the cinematic equivalent of an elegant storybook illustrated by N.C. Wyeth but the film itself, though produced in tandem by Paramount and Disney, is anything but child-like, with virgin sacrifices, gruesome bloodletting and the unexpected death of of a beloved character that lend the tale unexpected gravity. Starring the great Ralph Richardson as the resolute wizard Ulrich and Peter MacNicol as his callow but brave apprentice.

The post Dragonslayer appeared first on Trailers From Hell.

'Mindy Project' recap: An officer and a gynecologist

22 April 2014 9:12 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

“When I need to take the Pill/ I look upon the windowsill…”

Mindy Lahiri and her cohorts dove headfirst last night into what is (somehow?) one of the big political debates of 2014: Birth control access! Dr. Lahiri was counseling an 18-year-old who wanted a prescription for the Pill without telling her overprotective detective father (Tim Daly), who proceeded to find out anyway, and then storm into Mindy’s office to demand answers. “You just watch yourself, you sex-crazed quack. I could get you on the no-fly list like that,” Detective Lang threatened.
