Review: 'The Walking Dead' reveals Glenn's fate in 'Heads Up'

22 November 2015 7:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Spoilers for tonight's "The Walking Dead" coming up just as soon as there are people in my proximity with open toed shoes... Yup. They screwed it up. Even more than I imagined they could at first. The morning after "Thank You" aired — and after Scott Gimple's weird statement to "Talking Dead" (more on that in a bit) — I wrote that the series had inadvertently created a no-win scenario, by turning what had seemed to be Glenn's certain death into something more ambiguous after the fact. As a result, one of two things was going to happen: 1)Fans upset that one of their favorite characters had suffered such a meaningless death would be given false hope, then made even angrier because Glenn was really dead; or 2)Glenn's survival, no matter the mechanism, would not only render him (and Rick, Carol, and other core characters) invulnerable going forward, but obliterate the »

Miami Vice: Jan Hammer Theme Topped Charts 30 Years Ago

13 November 2015 11:20 AM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Miami Vice aired on NBC 30 years ago. The network cancelled the series after five seasons on the air. The series that starred Don Johnson was a cultural phenomenon, and it launched the career of Johnson and Edward James Olmos. Johnson has returned to television this season with Blood & Oil, but he will always be Sonny Crockett to Miami Vice fans.

The series was known for more than just its flashy fashion and fun in the sun action though. The series was known for its use of music. Many popular songs from the day were featured on the series, but the biggest feat of the series is for its soundtrack and theme song.

According to MeTV, It was 30 years ago this week that Jan Hammer's instrumental theme song for the series topped the Billboard charts at number one. A »

77 Reasons Christopher Lloyd Is Awesome, in Honor of His 77th Birthday

22 October 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Happy 77th birthday to one of our favorite actors, Christopher Lloyd!

The actor, who's played some of filmdom's most beloved characters, including Doc Brown in "Back to the Future," Professor Plum in "Clue," and Uncle Fester in the "Addams Family" films, was born on October 22, 1938 in Stamford, Conn.

Partly because of his height, and partly because of his manic intensity and commitment to even the wildest characters, he's portrayed a series of eccentrics, from mad scientists to aliens; had an impressive, award-winning theater career; and will always be remembered as Reverend Jim on "Taxi."

In honor of his 77th birthday, we've come up with 75 reasons why he's so awesome.

1. He's played a Klingon, a cartoon, the Wizard of Oz, an angel, a leper, and a geriatric vampire.

2. He stands an impressive 6'1."

3. Because he's so tall, he had to hunch over to appear in the same frame with "Back to the Future »

Emily S. Whitten: Baltimore Comic Con – Another Great Year!

29 September 2015 10:11 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I’ve said before that, despite liking to attend all flavors of fandom and comics conventions, including (clearly) the media guest-focused cons, I really love Baltimore Comic Con because it has stayed so focused on comics and comics creators. I’m happy to report that this has not changed.

I had a great time in Baltimore this year, doing some of the things that make me happiest at comic cons, like walking the exhibit hall and wandering Artist Alley to see what new things old friends are up to, meet folks whose work I know but whom I’ve never chatted with, and flip through the work of creators I haven’t ever encountered before. Amongst the fun things I discovered were this nifty accordion-style comic by Christa Cassano and Dean Haspiel; a gorgeous limited edition coloring book by Charles Vess, whose work I’ve loved for a long time »

‘Falling Skies’ series finale: Showrunner David Eick answers your burning questions

30 August 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

“The fight isn’t over ’til it’s over,” Colonel Weaver reassured members of the 2nd Mass on more than one occasion. Now it really is over: “Falling Skies” aired the finale of its fifth and final season tonight on TNT. Warning: Spoilers Ahead for “Reborn,” the series finale of “Falling Skies.” Tonight’s finale concluded the tale that began with a ragtag team of alien invasion survivors and ended with that same group of survivors becoming heroes, leading the fight to claim back their home, Planet Earth. Tom Mason and co. have battled all manner of extraterrestrial creatures, gruesome weapons that manipulated once-loyal members of the 2nd Mass to turn on their own, and fellow humans (non-alien-manipulated ones) who were plenty troublesome in their own selfish or fearful agendas, as if a powerful alien threat weren’t trouble enough.

Review: 'Mr. Robot' takes Elliot back to where their story began

19 August 2015 8:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Thoughts on tonight's penultimate "Mr. Robot" coming up just as soon as I take a jewelry class... "This is happening, isn't it? You knew all along, didn't you?" -Elliot Given the very fluid nature of Elliot's reality, and what an admittedly unreliable narrator he's been to his own story, tonight's episode could have very easily opened up by rolling back some or all of last week's revelations. Maybe Darlene was just kidding about being Elliot's sister! Maybe Mr. Robot photoshopped himself into Elliot's family snapshots! Maybe the meeting in the car between Tyrell and Mr. Robot was actually between Darlene and Whiterose, but the show was just screwing us! But while it's been fun to guess at which aspects of the show are real and which have existed only inside Elliot's head, there comes a point where the series has to commit to certain truths or risk the whole enterprise »

The stories behind TV production company closing logos

10 August 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Grr, argh. Sit, Ubu, sit. I made this! What’s the story behind the production company tags added onto our favourite TV shows?

Closing logos have evolved into a TV production company’s tiny stamp of individuality. They’re a single snippet of screen time not at the mercy of network notes, audience feedback or sponsorship concerns.

A closing tag doesn’t need to sell a show, tell a story, or lasso an audience back for the next episode. It’s simply a signature, a few seconds entirely belonging to the creatives, to do with what they will.

As such, closing logos are as self-indulgent or esoteric as the production company wills them. They’re perhaps the only place in television production where in-jokes, family photos, personal homages (or extended rants in the case of one comedy producer) and kid-drawn scribbles usually found taped to the fridge door are entirely welcome. »

Damian Szifron’s ‘Wild Tales’ Sweeps 2nd Platino Awards

18 July 2015 3:09 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Marbella, Spain – Damian Szifron’s Oscar-nominated and Cannes competition player “Wild Tales” swept the 2nd Platino Awards for Latin American Cinema winning eight kudos in all, including best picture, director, screenplay, music (Gustavo Santaolalla) and actress, Erica Rivas, the scorned bride in the final short).

Best picture was accepted by Agustin Almodovar and Hugo Sigman who exhorted a larger collaboration between Iberoa-American film agencies to create a cinema in Latinn America, Spain and Portugal with greater international reach.

Presented by Spanish actor Imanol Arias, Mexican actress-singer Alessandra Rosario and CNN presenter Juan Carlos Arciniegas, the awards proved a triumphal march for “Wild Tales.” Of major plaudits, only best actor went elsewhere, – to Spain’s Oscar Jaenada for his performance as the great Mexican comic in “Cantinflas,” a performance so convincing that it won over most Mexicans and went on to become the second highest-grossing foreign film in the U.S. »

Platino Awards: Antonio Banderas Calls for a Latino Studio to ‘Steal Hollywood From Hollywood’

17 July 2015 1:15 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Marbella, Spain — Antonio Banderas put out a call Friday for the big Latino broadcast networks in the U.S. plus broadcasters in Latin America and Spain to band together and create a Hollywood-style Latino studio that could “steal Hollywood from Hollywood.”

“Broadcasters over all of Ibero-America [Latin America, Spain and Portugal] would make an annual contribution and receive in return a quantity of content,” said Banderas, talking to journalists a day before Saturday’s second Platino Awards, where he will receive an Honorary Platino Award.

“I haven’t discussed this with anybody, “ said of his Latino studio game-plan. But “Televisions need content. That’s quite clear. Together, broadcasters in the U.S. Spain, Argentina, Mexico, Chile, Honduras… could make 20-25 high-level movies a year which have theatrical exhibition, then TV transmission.”

In total speakers, “We have a market which is bigger than the U.S.,” Banderas said. “We just have to reach an agreement.” Banderas comments came, »

Marlon Brando’s Star-Studded Acting Class Sounds Totally Insane

11 June 2015 1:22 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Did you know that Marlon Brando hosted a ten-day acting class in 2002? Did you know that some of the biggest stars in Hollywood were there? And did you know that it sounds absolutely nuts? Now, thanks to The Hollywood Reporter, you do. The mag has the story of Brando's acting workshop, which the actor cooked up as a scheme to help pay for the upkeep on his Tahitian island. In attendance were actors like Edward James Olmos, Robin Williams, Whoopi Goldberg, Pete Coyote, Jon Voight, and Leonardo DiCaprio (who left after one day), who all mixed with young drama students. Here's how THR sums up the sessions:During one of the sessions, a troupe of little people and a team of Samoan wrestlers — Brando somehow had wrangled all of them to the warehouse on the same day — did improvisation exercises together on the stage. Another time, Brando plucked a »
