Carnage review

19 March 2017 5:55 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Amstell's iPlayer exclusive, Carnage, is worth seeking out. Here's our review...

TV

Carnage is a 70-minute sci-fi vegan comedy, a description which its creator Simon Amstell admits “makes it sound awful”.

It is certainly an experimental commission for the BBC. Amstell - known for sad-com Grandma’s House and causing more than one celebrity walkout on Popworld and Never Mind The Buzzcocks – was asked if he had any ideas weird enough to be an iPlayer exclusive. This mockumentary is what he came up with.

In the year 2067, a group of young people picnic on vegan foods in an idyllic landscape. The idea that anyone ever ate meat is as horrifying as genocide to them, so the film sets out to help the youth of the late 21st century forgive the older generations.

It is important to say at this point, before you tut and go back to eating your sausage and eggs, »

Emmy Predictions 2017: Outstanding TV Movie

3 March 2017 3:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last Year’s Winner: “Sherlock: The Abominable Bride”

Hot Streak: HBO has won more awards in this category than all the other networks combined. They have 19 total Emmys. CBS and NBC are tied for the second highest total – six.

Fun Fact: “Jackie” fans take note: The First Lady was awarded an Emmy for “A Tour of the White House,” her famous televised walking tour that highlighted the historical alterations and preservations she’d help make to the White House. Jackie Kennedy remains the only First Lady to win a statue (though Michelle Obama’s “Billy on the Street” segment was nominated in 2015).

HBO’s dominance in the TV Movie category is well-known, even if the network was upset by an “Abominable Bride” last year. It’s back with a vengeance in 2017, touting three big-name contenders with built-in followers. »

Chris Evans and McKenna Grace bond in the new trailer for Gifted

24 February 2017 8:35 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Chris Evans has left behind the tight lycra suit of Captain America and gone all soft as he takes on the role as a single man raising his child prodigy niece in the upcoming Gifted, and we have the new trailer which is bound to have the ladies melting into a pile of quivering mess.

Related: Chris Evans Breaks Hearts in First Gifted Trailer

As with many films with young actors, the trailer shows McKenna Grace as a lovable ‘smart ass’ kid who promises to outshine her much older co-stars on a picture which is due to tug on the heart strings whilst dousing you with a much needed gentle humour.

No stranger to a film which, let’s face it, is directed at a more fairer audience than those who adore his Marvel comic book superhero, Chris Evans has starred in some rather dubious “chick flicks »

‘The Leftovers’: Season 3 Teaser Trailer Promises The End is Near, But Don’t Worry Baby

24 January 2017 12:21 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Keeping with the dark comic combination of doom and joy started with the Season 2 theme song, the first teaser for the final season of “The Leftovers” pairs an upbeat melody with one gloomy ending.

Could it really be any other way?

Showing the cast of characters staring up into the sky with concerned looks on their faces, the first teaser plays The Beach Boys’ “Don’t Worry Baby” in the background…until it shows what they’re looking at… and then we understand the concern.

Sherlock Series 4 Episode 2 Review – ‘The Lying Detective’

11 January 2017 4:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tori Brazier reviews the second episode of Sherlock series four…

After the rather uneven opening episode of Sherlock series four, Sunday’s ‘The Lying Detective’ managed to provide its audience, on the whole, with what we came to expect of the show in earlier series: namely a clever and more coherent plot which, although acting as a bridge between first and last episodes (so soon!), had its own pacing, tension and resolution within this episode. Throw in villain Toby Jones and his maniacal glee, plus a couple of genuine and well-executed shocks, and even ardent Sherlock fans should be satisfied. If you’ve not yet seen the most recent episode, read no further as key plot details will be covered!

‘The Lying Detective’ started off, as of old, with a peek into the crime and criminal: a teaser of what’s coming Sherlock’s way, if you will. Dubiously slimy »

‘Sherlock’ Review: ‘The Lying Detective’ Gives Us Sherlock’s Most Terrifying Villain Yet

8 January 2017 7:30 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Spoilers follow for Season 4, Episode 2, “The Lying Detective.”]

After last week’s damp squib, “Sherlock” is back on form in a genuinely terrifying episode with a shocking conclusion.

The villain of the week is Toby Jones as Culverton Smith, a wealthy and influential public figure beloved by the nation who may or may not have a secret life as a serial killer. While John is back in therapy, Sherlock is back on drugs and publicly accusing Smith of crimes he can’t prove, on account of being…well…off his tits for nearly the entire episode. It’s not until the very end that we know for sure that the great detective is right– Oh, and did we mention that Sherlock has a sister?

Sherlock Series 4 Episode 1 Review – ‘The Six Thatchers’

3 January 2017 3:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tori Brazier reviews the first episode of the eagerly-awaited fourth series of Sherlock

It’s been three years since the last series of Sherlock aired, and with suggestions that this fourth run could be the last, expectations are at their peak. Last January the BBC aired a one-off, stand-alone Victorian-set Sherlock caper – ‘The Abominable Bride’ – to a mixed reception. The scope was vast, the timelines Inception-esque in their confusion, and the production design deliciously gothic and macabre. Things then ended rather disappointingly when the episode seemed to suggest – rather bizarrely – that feminism was the ‘bad guy’…?

‘The Six Thatchers’ follows on directly from the frantic and high-speed events of 2014’s series finale, and the government (i.e. Mark Gatiss’s smarmy Mycroft) are in cover-up mode when it comes to the death of blackmailer Magnussen. That storyline tidily disposed of, things zoom forward through Mary’s pregnancy and the birth »

‘Sherlock’ Review: ‘The Six Thatchers’ Launches Season 4 With Some Big Changes

1 January 2017 7:30 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

There’s Something About Mary

There’s nothing like a new episode of “Sherlock” – and this was nothing like a new episode of “Sherlock.” If it wasn’t for the end credits, you’d be forgiven for assuming there was a new writing team in place. If it wasn’t for the opening credits, you’d assume it was a different show altogether.

The Game is On

Now that Sherlock has been recalled from The Shortest Exile Ever ™, he needs something to do while Moriarty spins his criminal web from beyond the grave (although he does have Twitter now – #221Bringiton was a nice touch).

Enter Greg ‘Silver Fox’ Lestrade, with a juicy case.

The initial mystery is who would want to smash statues of Margaret Thatcher, one of the most divisive Prime Ministers in British history. There are so many jokes to be made here about the obvious candidates — the miners, »
