Falling Skies season 4 episode 10 review: Drawing Straws

27 August 2014 1:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Falling Skies' family melodrama is never its strongest suit, and this week's episode is chock-full of it...

This review contains spoilers.

4.10 Drawing Straws

Falling Skies works best when it's blasting aliens and having fun with its sci-fi, or when it dabbles in horror elements to try to be creepy. The Mason family drama is not the show's strongest suit, though it has worked at times in the past. This week, however, the Mason squabbling throws a spanner into the works and detracts from some very good special affects on the beamer ships. Lexi travels to the Dianetics commercial lava world, overhears an alien plot, and destroys some valuable alien hardware in her return to the good side, but we spend much more time listening to people bicker than we do watching Lexi turn good and kill some fish heads

Chris Pratt raps Eminem’s ‘Forgot About Dre’ and talks Knightrider rumours

5 August 2014 9:41 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Those who have already seen Guardians of the Galaxy will be familiar with Peter ‘Star-Lord’ Quill’s Awesome Mixtape Vol. 1 that soundtracks the movie. In real life, however, the actor who portray hims – Chris Pratt (The Lego Movie, Her) – has revealed quite a different musical taste to Motown records and Blue Suede one-hit wonders.

Talking to Shade45 radio station, Pratt praised Dr Dre’s album ’2001′ as his own ‘Awesome Mixtape,’ knowing every word off by heart. And he proves it. Check out the rather impressive Pratt rap below (Warning: the clip contains adult language)…

Because we’re also a serious movie news site, we should probably mention the actual bit of news to come from that clip. Not the abscence of any black dinosaurs in Jurassic World (“I’m not sure scientifically that holds up”), but that Pratt first heard about the Knightrider film adaptation, in which he is rumoured to star, »

Falling Skies: Season Four Ratings

18 July 2014 1:42 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Airing on TNT, Falling Skies has been one of the cable channel's top-rated shows. However, the ratings have been dropping each year. Will they continue to fall or will they start to rebound? Will this series be renewed for a fifth season or, will it be cancelled instead? We'll have to wait and see.

On Falling Skies, the resistance continues to struggle for survival in the wake of a catastrophic alien invasion. The cast includes Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Will Patton, Drew Roy, Colin Cunningham, Connor Jessup, Maxim Knight, Sarah Sanguin Carter, Mpho Koaho, and Seychelle Gabriel.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

Falling Skies season 4 episode 4 review: Evolve Or Die

14 July 2014 11:48 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Falling Skies introduces a promising new character, played by Mira Sorvino, this week. Here's Ron's review...

Review

This review contains spoilers.

4.4 Evolve Or Die

So, the Espheni have tried all sorts of ways to get control of the earth. They did their doomsday bombing runs that destroyed major cities, they've sent skittering monsters after humans, they've sent giant mechanical robots after them, they've stuck fashionable spinewear onto the kids, they've sent roving air ships after them, they've tried to brainwash them, and they've rounded them up into concentration camps. Every weapon, every method, every technique to win or rip out hearts and minds just hasn't worked out, unlike with the Volm and all the other races the Espheni have captured or turned into skitters.

This week, they seem to be turning to a new experimental weapon. Not the space shields and atmosphere burning thing from last season, but something... make »

WWE 2K15: 9 Entrances We Can’t Wait To See

26 June 2014 9:18 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The entrance to the arena is an important part of any wrestler’s character. A well executed entrance tells the fans straight away who this guy/gal is, what their motivations and character are and whether to cheer or boo them. As we enter a new generation of wrestling talent, with guys like the Shield, Bray Wyatt and Daniel Bryan on the rise, we’ll also get to experience their entrances replicated in video game form for the first time in this year’s WWE release.

With Nxt as a fertile breeding ground for more interesting and multi-faceted characters than we’re ever had before, the entrances have already started to get more fun and creative. With all this mind, let’s take a look at the walk-ins we’re most looking forward to watching on our next-gen consoles come October.

TV Review: ‘Falling Skies,’ Season Four

19 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The creative roller-coaster ride that is “Falling Skies” opens season four on a downward arc, as the TNT series goes a little gaga with its alien-invasion metaphors, including Hitler Youth-like camps to re-educate younger prisoners. While the show picked up considerable momentum in its last go-round — and remains perfectly watchable popcorn fare — the notion of dueling alien constituencies, with one friendly to the humans, risks spinning “Skies” off its axis. Noah Wyle’s sturdy Everyman, who frets about his extended brood, remains extremely valuable in grounding the show, but for all the Skitters he’s dispatched, even he can’t overcome the show’s camp factor.

Suffice it to say whatever gains the human insurgency scored — with help from another alien force, the Volm — are pretty quickly erased, scattering the members of the central group while setting up new dangers. That includes leaving some incarcerated and others to battle on, »

Film Review: Engrossing ‘Cheap Thrills’ Bets on Men’s Desperation

11 April 2014 2:13 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “Cheap Thrills” is a case study in human desperation and depravity. It’s a sick and twisted film, but it goes about it in a most absorbing albeit uncomfortable way. It’s one of those films that forces the viewer to place themselves in the protagonist’s unpredictable position, asking a question like, “What would you do for money?” Once you do it, what else are you willing to do for more and then, “How far is too far?” 

Rating: 3.5/5.0

In his directorial debut, E.L. Katz, along with screenwriters David Chirchirillo and Trent Haaga, want us to ask such questions and many more. Based on the levels of humiliation and pain witnessed on the screen, they also want us to squirm in frustrated and anger. It’s like a product of “The Twilight Zone” and “Creepshow” spilling into each other, that happens to deliver one of the most memorable endings of the year. »

New Falling Skies and The Last Ship Trailers and Premiere Date Released

10 March 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

TNT was at SXSW this past weekend, and happily for us, that means that they have now released new trailers for Falling Skies and The Last Ship. Much of The Last Ship‘s trailer is footage we’ve already seen, though we do get bits of new, but Falling Skies, Wow. Chock full of new clips, including a peek at the new villains…

Also released is the premiere date, so mark your calendars (or keep an eye on ours) for June 22, since they will apparently be airing back to back. I love when they do that! Thanks TNT! Falling Skies will air at 10/9c, and although the trailer doesn’t specify the time for The Last Ship, I’m guessing at 9/8c.

As we get closer to spring and the new spring shows… it’s time to start getting ready for summer!

We here at SciFi Mafia sure don’t.

The third show in the trailer, Legends, stars Sean Bean (Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Rings, Game of Thrones) and it’s a spy show but with nothing, as far as we can tell, »

Jonah Hill Still Can't Believe He's Friends With Leonardo DiCaprio

5 January 2014 4:35 PM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Palm Springs International Film Festival attendees followed a late night at Saturday's official awards gala and afterparty with a mimosa-soaked brunch at Variety's Creative Impact Awards today. Jonah Hill was honored with the event's acting award for his role in The Wolf of Wall Street. Jonah reflected on expanding his talents beyond comedy in his acceptance speech and also talked about how surreal it is to have worked with Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese. "I really want to thank Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese," he said, "which sounds crazy that I'm referring to them in a way that I actually know them, as opposed to abstract, heroic figures. I love those guys." He also took a guess at how they might be spending their morning. "They're probably on Mars right now, or wherever they hang out." Colin Farrell and Melissa McCarthy were also on hand at The Parker hotel for the festivities. »
