Murder of a Cat
The darkly comic noir follows a guy trying to unravel the mystery around the murder of his pet cat. »

Although Showtime vaulted into rarefied air with its Emmy win for “Homeland,” the channel continues to offer a spate of shows that clearly have admirers and boast billboard-worthy stars but amount to utility players, failing to reach cable’s elite tier. Two of those, “Nurse Jackie” and “The Borgias,” return April 14, while “The Big C” has been granted the TV equivalent of a dignified death, with four hourlong episodes to conclude the series. A new showrunner hasn’t changed “Jackie” — worth recommending for Edie Falco and not much else — while “Borgias” proves that even papal intrigue and debauchery can grow tiresome.
So if there’s one worth discussing, it’s “The Big C: hereafter” — not because it works, but because the ways in which these episodes fall short illuminate how a promising premise can go wrong, squandering a provocative idea. Even so, credit Showtime with committing to this limited run, »

Warning: as an introduction to the show, this feature contains mild character and plot spoilers.
This Sunday sees the return of Showtime drama The Borgias in the Us. The plot is deceptively simple: it’s the story of the Borgia family living their lives in Rome. It just so happens this family’s father is the Pope, and this is the 1490s. It's a different playing field from your average family drama.
That's just the tip of the Borgia iceberg, and here are a few more points to whet your palate while we await the Sunday night premiere.
Because I'm the Pope, That's Why
Since this is, in its way, a family show, we have to start with the trunk of the Borgia »
Yesterday, I treated you all to Neville Page's glorious Green Lantern Corps designs and today I want to share with you his creature designs for Star Trek and Prometheus. The first gallery below features Neville Page's artistic contributions to Star Trek, which include background aliens, the strange beasts of Delta Vega, and variations of the facial makeup for Nero (Eric Bana) and his crew of Romulan miners. To see more of Neville's Star Trek designs click here. Star Trek (2009) was directed by J. J. Abrams, from a screenplay written by Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. The cast included: Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Leonard Nimoy, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, John Cho, Anton Yelchin, Eric Bana and Bruce Greenwood. In the gallery below you will find concept art that Neville created for Ridley Scott's Alien prequel, Prometheus. Those images include designs for Fifield's (Sean Harris) grotesquely mutated form, »
Director: Susanne Bier
Writer(s): Christopher Kyle
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
Almost at the three decade mark in filmmaking, Susanne Bier’s fourth film in the English language will start receiving buzz at this year’s Oscars red carpet run – Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper who topline Depression-era book adaptation will be there for Silver Linings Playbook. Perhaps this pic needs the wattage, but I’m expecting this to be a premium quality drama-like item (perhaps nothing close to her best to date with 2004′s Brothers) but Appalachia and a strong female heroine could prove alluring as a backdrop and forefront.
Gist: Based on Ron Rash’s novel, this is set in Depression-era North Carolina, the »
