Dr. Cabbie Movie Review

27 November 2014 8:35 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Dr. Cabbie is a Canadian romantic comedy starring Vinay Virmani, Kunal Nayyar, Lillete Dubey, Adrianne Palicki, Mircea Monroe, Rizwan Manji, Chris Diamantopoulos and Isabelle Kaif. The film is directed by Jean- François Pouliot and is Salman Khan’s first international production.

Dr. Cabbie is the journey of Deepak, a recently graduated doctor who immigrates to “the land of opportunity” (aka Canada) with the selfless ambition of healing others while beginning a new life. Unable to find a job as a doctor, he starts working as a cabbie and becomes a local celebrity after delivering a baby in his cab. Deepak sees the opportunity to make his dream come true and converts his taxi into a mobile clinic. But his selfless ambition of healing others will lead to serious problems that Deepak will have to face in order to succeed.

Vinay Virmani (also writer and producer of the film) plays the role of Deepak. »

‘The Art of the Steal’ Blu-ray Review

26 October 2014 3:04 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Kurt Russell, Matt Dillon, Jay Baruchel, Chris Diamantopoulos, Katheryn Winnick, Kenneth Welsh, Jason Jones, Terence Stamp | Written and Directed by Jonathan Sobol

[One of my favourite films of the year, so far, is heist movie The Art of the Steal; with the film set for release tomorrow, here's a reposting of my review from the films very limited cinema run. Why? Because this is one film I think everyone should see!]

I love a good heist (or caper) movie, of course as do many others out there, just look at the success of the “Oceans” franchise and the recent Now You See Me but my love does not end at the mainstream, I really love discovering hidden gems of the genre – films like Flypaper, How to Rob a Bank and The Perfect Score – so when I saw The Art of the Steal pop up on Amazon.com I knew it was a film I had to check out. Even more so considering it stars the legend that is Kurt Russell alongside the always awesome Jay Baruchel. So, thinking this is the type of under-the-radar flick that I’d dig (and that wouldn’t see the light of day »

'Dr. Cabbie': 9 Things to Know From the Set of the Canadian Comedy

19 September 2014 4:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It all started with a cab ride, fittingly enough. That's where "Dr. Cabbie" star, producer and co-writer Vinay Virmani happened to meet a Toronto taxi driver who used to be a surgeon in his native India, giving the young actor the seed for the idea that would eventually become his follow-up to the 2011 hit "Breakaway."

Directed by Quebec filmmaker Jean-François Pouliot in his first English-language project, the film stars Virmani as Deepak, a recent Indian med-school grad who immigrates to Canada only to find out that his degree isn't recognized. Forced to get a job as a cabbie, but still looking to follow in his late father's footsteps and put his medical training to good use, Deepak begins running a mobile clinic out of the back of his taxi, quickly becoming something of local hero.

Rather than tackle a pair of serious social issues like immigration and healthcare via a straight-laced drama, »

‘High Moon’ shoots Bryan Fuller back into space

16 September 2014 4:46 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

High Moon

Written by Bryan Fuller and Jim Danger Gray

Directed by Adam Kane

Aired September 15, 2014 on Syfy

While Bryan Fuller’s style may be a bit too quirky, macabre, or esoteric for some audiences, there’s no denying that the man knows how to give good pilot. The first episode of Wonderfalls was an endearing, fast-talking affair that gradually injected fantasy into early 20s/retail ennui. The first episode of Pushing Daisies was nothing less than a storybook brought to life, a vibrant spin on the matters of life, death, and what happens when the order of the two reverses. And the first episode of Hannibal was a visceral, otherworldly affair that made it clear from the outset it wasn’t your parents’ Hannibal Lecter.

That track record leads to a lot of high expectations for High Moon, even though unlike those previous shows the pilot is (likely) all there’s going to be. »

High Moon review

16 September 2014 1:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ron doesn't see why Syfy's fun, good-looking sci-fi pilot, High Moon, didn't make it to series. There's plenty here to enjoy...

Once upon a time, you couldn't sneeze in the summer without hitting some sort of made-for-tv movie. Sometimes, they'd be specially made for the purpose of airing. Sometimes, they'd just be unused pilots that happened to be edited into a two-hour block to fill a little airtime. For every The Night Stalker, there was a Steel Magnolias, K-9 And Company, or a Riding With Death (which went on to fame via Mystery Science Theater 3000). In other words, the TV movie pilot doesn't always work out all that well. However, you have to give SyFy credit for trying to make something out of nothing with High Moon, the television pilot version of John Christopher's novel The Lotus Caves.

In the not-too-distant future, the moon has become the new »

Bryan Fuller makes science fiction fun again with 'High Moon'

15 September 2014 10:38 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Tonight, Americans have the choice between watching Dancing with the StarsMonday Night Football, and … a SyFy movie with gay Russian spies on the moon. Curious? You’re not alone: SyFy executives thought the same thing of Bryan Fuller’s newest creation, High Moon. For four years, Fuller and the channel entered into an on-again, off-again relationship. At first it was a pilot, then a miniseries, then back to a pilot, then back to… you get the idea.

“ecause of how strange the development process was at the network, I don’t think anybody was surprised [that it wasn't made into a series],” Fuller said. “Right before we were ordered, »

A bionic man can fly in a new clip from Bryan Fuller's 'High Moon'

10 September 2014 1:38 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

A sci-fi saga set in outer space produced by Bryan Fuller, the creator of Hannibal, Pushing Daisies and Wonderfalls? The idea sounded promising when SyFy ordered a 90-minute pilot for High Moon last summer, but alas, the finished product didn’t entice the network to send the show to series. Fuller’s fans and geeks of all stripes can judge for themselves when SyFy airs the pilot as a TV movie on Monday, Sept. 15, at 9 Pm.

Based on the novel The Lotus Caves, High Moon stars Jonathan Tucker, Jake Sandvig, Chris Diamantopoulos, and Charity Wakefield and, according to most log lines, »

9 September 2014 1:28 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

When last we talked about High Moon, an adaptation of John Christopher's novel The Lotus Caves by Bryan Fuller ("Hannibal"), it was being called a pilot; but now it seems to be just another in the network's long line of Original Movies.

Adam Kane ("Being Human") directed the script penned by co-executive producer Jim Danger Gray ("Pushing Daisies") from a story adaptation written by Fuller and Gray.

The film airs on Monday, September 15th, at 9/8c on Syfy. Check out the trailer and a still below.

Bryan Fuller's "High Moon" To Air On Syfy

8 September 2014 6:16 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A few years back, "Hannibal" and "Dead Like Me" show runner Bryan Fuller crafted a pilot for Syfy based on John Christopher‘s 1969 sci-fi novel "The Lotus Caves".

Fuller's adaptation never got picked up to series, but now Syfy is slated to show the 90-minute series premiere which has been repurposed as a TV movie that will air later this month. To tease the telemovie, the network has just posted the first five minutes of the pilot-turned-telemovie online at TV Line.

Jonathan Tucker, Jake Sandvig, Chris Diamantopoulos, and Charity Wakefield star in the series which is set on the Earth's moon which is now home to numerous mining colonies. Chaos erupts when a new life form is revealed.

Jim Danger Gray ("Hannibal," "Torchwood") wrote the script and Adam Kane ("Pushing Daisies") directed the work. Funnily enough this marks the second failed pilot of Fuller's to be turned into a telemovie event, »

The Winners of the Creative Arts Emmys Are Here

18 August 2014 8:16 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

So the big Emmys don't air until next Sunday night and at Moviefone we will have, of course, full coverage. But last night the Creative Arts Emmys were handed out, for the people that are largely responsible for making these shows that you absolutely love -- you know, the behind-the-scenes talent tasked with conceptualizing and realizing your favorite programs. Oh -- and some guest actor and actresses awards were handed out, so there's that too!

In the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series category Uzo Aduba took home the prize for "Orange is the New Black." Since we are, very shamefully, one of a handful of Americans who hasn't seen a single second of "Orange in the New Black," this doesn't mean a whole lot to us, but we are very happy for her!

The first round of 2014 Emmy Awards were handed out at the Creative Arts Emmys ceremony on Saturday (August 16) night at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.  The ceremony, which precedes the Monday, August 25 Primetime Emmy Awards telecast, offered signs of hope for a number of drama and comedy hopefuls. Netflix's "Orange Is The New Black," for example, won Emmys for editing, series casting and for Uzo Aduba, who is considered a guest actress for the purposes of these awards. No other comedy series was able to build any other momentum going into next week's show, with "The Big Bang Bang Theory," "Nurse Jackie," "How I Met Your Mother" and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" grabbing isolated tech prizes and Jimmy Fallon winning the Guest Actor in a Comedy Series award for the second time in three years for his "Saturday Night Live" hosting duties.

This year, the TV academy split the Voice-Over category, which it introduced back in 1992, into two separate awards: Best Narrator and Best Character Voice-Over Performance.
