The X-Files: The Event Series Review

6 July 2016 11:27 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After nine years of monsters, aliens and shadow government conspiracies, The X-Files closed its doors during the spring of 2002. Taken off air as a result of declining ratings and a general drop in quality, its loss left a large hole in the hearts of many who’d followed along since the early 90s.

Thankfully for us Xphiles, what was once thought to be dead didn’t stay buried long. In 2008, creator Chris Carter brought his now iconic series back into the limelight with the stand-alone movie, I Want to Believe. However, while it brought fans the married Mulder and Scully tandem that they’d been pining for for years, an uninteresting plot, some embarrassing writing and poor casting decisions led to a box office flop.

I Want to Believe‘s high profile failure was thought to be the final nail in the show’s coffin. Fans were unhappy, Fox was »

17 times movies and TV shows were refused rights to songs

Louisa Mellor Jul 1, 2016

Not every artist is happy to have their song featured in a particular TV show or film. Here are 17 times the rights were refused...

It's not only political campaigns that inspire musical artists to exercise the power of veto on the use of their songs. For reasons of finance, reputation, ego, taste and more, the following TV shows and films weren't able to secure the use of the recordings they originally sought...

This Express piece quotes an Empire Magazine interview with Martin Scorsese’s long-time editor Thelma Schoonmaker in which she relates how the original plan was to have Frank Sinatra’s original recording of My Way play over the end credits of modern gangster classic Goodfellas instead of the Sid Vicious cover that was eventually used.

Sinatra would never let Marty use his music,” explains Schoonmaker, “which is too bad because Marty may »

Amazon 2016 Pilots: ‘The Interestings’ and ‘The Last Tycoon,’ Reviewed

The Last Tycoon

In the year 2016, it’s no secret that as glamorous as old Hollywood seemed on the surface, the truth was far less wholesome. With that in mind, “The Last Tycoon,” written and directed by Billy Ray (the under-appreciated talent behind such films as “Shattered Glass,” adapting a famously unfinished roman a clef by F. Scott Fitzgerald) might seem a bit rote, but it’s got an awful lot going for it.

Matt Bomer stars as Monroe Stahr, the idealistic production head of a motion picture studio who’s at odds with studio boss Pat Brady (Kelsey Grammer) while trying to get his dream picture made in the political and social climate of the 1930s. (Why yes, the subject of what’s happening in Germany does come up.) Monroe, we learn right away, is mourning the loss of his movie star wife even as he bounds around the studio, »

From ‘American Crime’ to ‘The Americans’: Teen Takeover of TV’s Prestige Drama

1 June 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A funny thing happened on TV while the adults were busy having affairs and plotting political coups. Their kids slowly took over their shows.

Until recently, whether they were used as writers’ ploys to delve deeper into another character — think a doe-eyed Meadow Soprano asking her mob boss dad the question he’s been dreading — or straight-up stupid (“24’s” not-so-epic battle between Kim Bauer and a mountain lion), teen characters on dramas geared toward adults rarely commanded respect.

“I found that depictions of teenagers in television tend to be pretty weak. And it tends to be pretty obvious and very clear that these are characters being written by, usually, men in their 40s or 50s and it creates not-interesting characters,” says Connor Jessup [“Falling Skies”], who stars as Taylor Blaine on the second season of ABC’s anthology series “American Crime,” created by John Ridley.

Amazon Prime customers will once again have a hand in deciding which of Amazon Video’s 2016 pilots get signed to full series.

The X-Files: Looking back at Season 10

18 May 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black looks back at The X-Files season 10…

Words can not begin to express how excited I was when The X-Files was confirmed to be returning for the first time since 2007, and on TV since 2002. It has been the piece of entertainment closest to my heart since I was a child. I have watched it countless times. I even do a podcast in which I’m talking all 200+ episodes over what will probably end up taking several years. There is no TV show I venerate, or will ever venerate more. Season 10 therefore was manna from heaven; almost a decade after convincing myself we’d never see a conclusion to Fox Mulder & Dana Scully’s story, having to make do with non-canon (if enjoyable) comics or even, in many case, writing my own fan fiction scripted conclusion (I’ll stop with the self promotion now, promise!), we at last had what »

The X-Files S10 E06: My Struggle II review

14 March 2016 2:55 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The X-Files Season 10, Episode 6 review by Dan Bullock. March 2016.

So here is the finale of The X-Files revival and with it, they’ve ramped up the information to take in and taut up the tension to the maximum. Looping in from opening episode My Struggle, they’ve unexpectedly brought back Agent Monica Reyes (Annabeth Gish) and thrown in Agent Miller (Robbie Amell), Agent Einstein (Lauren Ambrose), Tad O’Malley (Joel McHale), along with the addition of a proper, gruesome return for William B. Davis’ Cigarette-Smoking Man. We also got to witness a super impressive Mulder fight scene but all of his lurks beneath the beginnings of a worldwide contagion that’s slowly been sifted into our systems many years ago…

Before we dive into discussing the episode itself, I have to be honest and the series overall has hit both highs and lows. I think, in retrospect, Fox should have »

The X-Files S10 E05: Babylon review

7 March 2016 1:56 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The X-Files Season 10 Episode 5 review by Dan Bullock. March 2016.

Babylon is a strange mishmash of concepts which works on one side to break down various normal styles of narrative but on its flipside felt a little dated than what’s come before. Chris Carter’s episode also raised the huge question about belief in relation to reality, and then it threw in comedy with a touch of surrealism. It’s a peculiar one but you’ll definitely want to talk about it.

Initially, it also concerned, as we open with something that felt a little clichéd as we see two young men assumptively being suspicious, walking into a building and then it blows up. Now, there’s a very interesting question here, is this episode all about perception? Sure, we see them praying, we witness them meet and discuss what’s next but there’s no specific focus on them »

Will Robbie Amell be back for more The X-Files adventures as Agent Miller? “As of right now, I'm under no contract”, he’s revealed…

In the recently-concluded The X-Files event series, Robbie Amell’s character Agent Miller and Lauren Ambrose’s Einstein seemed like tailor-made replacements for David Duchovny’s Mulder and Gillian Anderson’s Scully. So has Mr Amell been approached to take centre stage in a spin-off series? Cbr has asked the actor that very question, and here’s what he said in response… 

"When I auditioned for the role and booked it, they originally asked for a series regular contract. It wasn't necessarily for a spinoff. It was just so they could lock in a contract, maybe for continuing the series with David and Gillian, or maybe for a spinoff. We didn't know. I asked those questions. I asked, 'How long it is going to be for? »
