"The Night Of" Second Season Considered

31 July 2016 10:05 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

On the surface, HBO's currently acclaimed and so far strongly rated mystery drama series "The Night Of" seems to be very much a 'one and done' style affair - an eight-episode self-contained event series about a complex murder case in New York City.

That may not be entirely true though as showrunner Steven Zaillian told the press (via THR) this weekend at the network's TCA presentation that a possible second installment is in discussion:

"We're thinking about it and if we come up with something we all feel is worthy of doing, we'll do it. This was designed as a standalone piece. … That being said, there are ways of certainly kind of taking what it feels like and what its about and doing another season on another subject."

Such a move wouldn't be unprecedented. The series is a remake of the five-part 2008 British mini-series "Criminal Justice", that version had Ben Whishaw »

Emmy Nominations 2016: My Snappy Judgments

14 July 2016 8:50 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

The 2016 Emmy nominations were, as per usual, both thrilling and maddening. For every inspired nod (The Americans! Finally!) there was a snub that had me scratching the skin off my scalp (no Eva Green again?!). So without further adieu, I give you the good, the bad and the downright ugly from this year’s list.

I’m Super-Ecstatic About:

* The Americans at long last! And Matthew Rhys! And Keri Russell!

* The Academy recognizing the underrated Thomas Middleditch from Silicon Valley.

* Constance Zimmer scoring a supporting actress nod for UnREAL.

* Louie Anderson getting recognized for his gender-bending Baskets work.

Movie Review – Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016)

29 May 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Alice Through the Looking Glass, 2016.

Directed by James Bobin.

Starring Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen, Timothy Spall, Rhys Ifans, Matt Lucas, Richard Armitage, Andrew Scott, Lindsay Duncan, and Sacha Baron Cohen.


Alice returns to the whimsical world of Wonderland and travels back in time to save the Mad Hatter.

In an age where Hollywood cannot go more than two years tops without cashing in on a sequel to a smashing box office success, it is absolutely flabbergasting from a business perspective that Alice Through the Looking Glass is just now being released a little over six years after Tim Burton rebooted the iconic characters and story with Alice in Wonderland. That movie made over $1 billion too, begging the question, why was there no immediate follow-up?

Well, after having watched Alice Through the Looking Glass, it seems safe to assume »

“Alice Through the Looking Glass” will continue to print money for Disney

25 May 2016 12:24 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Disney certainly knows how to craft financially successful films. Especially when they take their animated classics and adapt them into live action features, the Mouse basically has a formula all but down pat. Opening this week, Alice Through the Looking Glass is the latest in that endeavor, one which was executed to tremendous effect recently with The Jungle Book. This one doesn’t appear to be nearly as strong a work, which makes sense considering the last installment in this now franchise was Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, which I didn’t care for one bit. Still, it was a hit, and I highly suspect that this one will be a hit as well. The movie is, once again, a sequel to Alice in Wonderland, obviously. Taking place years after the first film, Alice Kingsleigh (Mia Wasikowska) is drawn back into Wonderland by her oppressed life in the real »

Review: Alice Through The Looking Glass, Curiouser And Curiouser

24 May 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Six years ago, Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland caught the early wave of the modern 3D era and became a big financial success, fairly demanding that a sequel would be forthcoming. Now the generally darker sequel has arrived, based on the generally darker book by Lewis Carroll, and once again scripted by the generally reliable Linda Woolverton. Yet beyond the financial imperative, it's difficult to discern a creative motivation for telling the new story. Since the events in the first film, Alice (Mia Wasikowska) has become a ship's captain. Upon her return home to England, she learns that her mother (Lindsay Duncan) is facing a financial crisis and that her former fiancee Hamish (Leo Bill) holds the key, so to speak. Led by the butterfly...

Alice Through the Looking Glass movie review: a mirror cracked

24 May 2016 1:32 PM, PDT | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Believes six impossible things — like implausible character motivations, or big emotions — because they’re in the script, without bothering to earn them. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): hated the first film

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Alice Through the Looking Glass may bear even less resemblance to anything Lewis Carroll wrote than its predecessor, Tim Burton’s 2010 flick Alice in Wonderland, so perhaps it’s not surprising that it follows up on the adventure that Burton’s adaptation hinted was in store for Alice, something that Carroll would never have imagined for her. Glass opens with adult Alice Kingsleigh (Mia Wasikowska: Crimson Peak, Madame Bovary), now captain of an English merchant ship in 1847, executing a daring escape from pirates on the high seas. It’s a thrilling sequence, not least because Alice’s all-male crew appears to have no »
