It’s the beginning of the end for “Falling Skies” tonight. The TNT series, produced by Steven Spielberg, airs the finale of its fifth and final season, when all manner of beasts and mutants are running rampant on Earth. Season 5 picks up right where season 4 left off (a first for a “Falling Skies” premiere — find out why in HitFix’s Q&A with the series' showrunner). Dr. Anne Glass, played by Moon Bloodgood, is dealing with the likely loss of her alien hybrid child and her husband (“ER” alum Noah Wyle) when the two of them haven’t returned from their crucial mission to the moon. Here Bloodgood tells HitFix how Anne steps up as a leader in the fight for humanity’s survival against the invading aliens. The actress also talks about which character gets an intense showdown with Anne, how becoming a mother has changed her as an actress, »

This won’t be a review and you will learn nothing about what occurs in this issue from me. In the recent past I have gone on at length raving about Matt Kindt and Trevor Hairsine’s work on Divinity for Valiant. You can find those pieces here at Boomtron on each issue as I, more often than not, gleefully stumble trying to find the nature of and meaning of a new god in a new comic book (and possible future cinematic) universe, both in their initial stages of existing. Ninjak #4 though? I don’t even want to talk about this issue. And I really won’t. Not because of the same reason I didn’t talk about Dead Drop #2. I loved this, and you have to experience it.
You won’t be able to telegraph it.
The ending of the last issue left us with that was more or less a standard cliffhanger. »

With Scream Factory releasing The Vicious Brothers' Extraterrestrial on Blu-ray today, I had a chance to talk with the filmmaking duo of Stuart Ortiz and Colin Minihan about Extraterrestrial’s origins, working with Michael Ironside, Grave Encounters 3, and more.
Thanks for taking the time to chat today. How did you guys come up with the idea for Extraterrestrial?
Stuart Ortiz: It was actually the first script Colin and I ever came up with, which was about eight years ago now. It’s changed a lot since then, though. Colin and I met on the Internet on a filmmaking web forum, a really early one where people put up clips and stuff. This was in the dial-up era, so a one minute-long clip would take all day to upload. We would post short films we made and we liked each other’s work and started chatting and formed this relationship. »

Life of Riley, 2014.
Directed by Alain Resnais.
George Riley is due to die, forcing his close friends, and ex-lovers, to reflect on their own lives as he comes to the end of his.
This is Alain Resnais’ final film. This is his third adaptation of an Alan Aykbourn play, a different era to his previous exploits within his six-decade canon. Director of art-house classics Hiroshima mon amour and Last Year at Marienbad, Resnais was often ambiguous with his intentions, merging dreams and reality, truth and fiction, throughout his stories. Life of Riley won a Silver Bear at the Berlin Film Festival (only one month before his death) “for a feature that opens new perspectives”, as it does again create conflict between stage and screen.
Of course, it’s slightly jarring when, fading into England (more specifically, »

My experience with the world of Chris Carter’s TV shows consists of a few scattered X-Files episodes (specifically ones written by William Gibson or starring Tony Todd) and a half hour of the Millennium pilot (also about fifteen minutes of Harsh Realm). I remember absolutely loving these things but not being able to watch more because up until I was about 16, I wasn’t allowed to watch much TV, and certainly not the scary stuff. By the time I was 16, any interest I might have had in TV was scoured away by my devoted passion to my Super Nes. As I’ve gotten older, my caution in sampling The X-Files and Millennium has been due to the size of the commitment; I know the series are intertwined and that The X-Files »
