Highlander: The Series and why you should watch it

2 August 2016 3:24 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Scott Varnham Aug 15, 2016

It may be so 90s it hurts, but the Highlander TV series spin-off is still very much worth a watch...

You may have seen a few articles about the original Highlander movie recently, as it’s just celebrated its 30th anniversary. Lots of things have turned 30 this year. Just a few examples: The Legend Of Zelda, Pixar, the M25. Fine institutions, but did any of them spawn a mostly superior TV series in 1992? I think not. Don’t let the fact that it was made in the 90s put you off. People still watch Buffy.

The series follows the adventures of Duncan MacLeod (cousin of the movie’s Connor). Explaining the premise of Highlander in complex detail would make me go far over my word count, so I’ll be brief. Basically, immortal sword fighters fight to decapitate each other in order to be the last one »

10 Things to Love About "Scoop"

27 July 2016 10:20 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Today marks the 10th anniversary of Woody Allen’s murder mystery romp, Scoop. The film followed the darkly sexy Match Point, reuniting the director with star Scarlett Johansson. Unfortunately, critics and audiences were less dazzled by the pair’s second feature together, and Scoop joined the ranks of Allen’s lesser films. 

Still, I have a soft spot for this quirky little film. It’s not perfect, but it’s a fun; a confection (more dessert than entree). It’s a movie you can put on in the background while working on a project or as a pick-me-up after a bad day. So in honor of its anniversary, here are ten things to love about the mostly unloved Scoop

Canadian director-producer launches UK film fund

8 July 2016 1:55 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Alchemy Fund aimed at supporting films in the £1m-£10m range.

London and Vancouver-based director and producer Ryan Bonder is launching Alchemy Film Fund, which will look to invest in projects in the £1m-£10m budget-range.

Backed by “a small stable of private investors” who have previously backed Bonder’s own slate of films, the fund will look to invest in film and TV projects via Eis schemes.

According to Border, whose sophomore feature The Brother (2016) was backed by the same private investors and Telefilm Canada, Alchemy will offer debt, tax credit and equity finance.

Bonder said: “The focus will be on unique director-led projects we believe have strong cross-over appeal.”

The fund will also look to back event-cinema projects: “While independent films struggles to find space in the theatrical market, filmmakers must become more creative in how their films are marketed and viewed,” he said.

“You have to offer something different and unique to reach »

Luke Treadway as James Bowen in 'A Street Cat Named Bob' Trailer

21 June 2016 5:48 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Sometimes it takes nine lives to save one. Sony UK has debuted a trailer for a film called A Street Cat Named Bob, based on the bestselling book about a street musician whose life is changed by an adorable stray cat named Bob. Luke Treadway plays James Bowen, a young homeless busker and recovering drug addict living on the streets of London. The cast also features Bob the Cat (the real one!), Ruta Gedmintas, Joanne Froggatt, Anthony Head, and was filmed mostly on location around Covent Garden. This looks quite charming, better than expected from that title, and it features some impressive cinematography and heartwarming moments. It could've turned out so cheesy but it actually looks pretty dang good. Take a look.

TV Review: ‘Guilt’

13 June 2016 7:11 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Summer’s the right time for a potboiler that involves pretty people, murder, and the English aristocracy, but the London-set “Guilt” never quite knits an array of reasonably promising elements into a watchable warm-weather melodrama.

The biggest shame is that it doesn’t make better use of a couple of key cast members — Anthony Stewart Head (best known for playing Giles on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), and the ubiquitous Billy Zane. Head, who has been absent too long from American TV screens, here plays the rich father of Grace (Daisy Head, the actor’s daughter), an American student suspected of the murder of her hard-partying flatmate, Molly. Head is usually able to enliven even flatly written roles, but his entitled character in “Guilt” is tediously one-dimensional and nowhere near the charming rake the show clearly intends him to be.

The person having the most fun on screen, despite the plodding pace, is Zane, who plays a deliciously shady lawyer hired to defend Grace, who quickly becomes a target of the U.K. tabloids. (And speaking of tabloids, the fictional storyline here recalls certain elements of the case of Amanda Knox, an American in Italy who became tangled up in a lengthy and convoluted Italian murder case.) Unfortunately, Zane can’t rescue the entire production, which follows many of the dictums of the ABC/Freeform soap-opera formula — multicultural cast, choppy editing, and pop music on the soundtrack — but ends up recalling the rote superficiality of lesser ripped-from-the-headlines “Law and Order” episodes.

Not that “Guilt” needs to aspire to follow in the footsteps of “The Good Wife,” let alone the cerebral “Rectify.” It’s clearly going for a slicker, soapier vibe, and there’s a lot to like about that kind of flashy, lawyer-adjacent drama. “Scandal,” the best current exemplar of this genre, has been able to wring a great deal of entertaining melodrama from an array of educated, good-looking characters who’ve committed a number of murders on the road to power.

Guilt” isn’t about power players per se, but it fails to deliver on a number of important fronts. Its characters are predictably written, the dialogue is average at best, and Grace in particular does so many dumb things that it’s hard to care about what happens to her. Grace’s lawyer sister, Natalie (Emily Tremaine), jets over from Boston to help defend her, but while both actresses are competent in their respective roles, neither character makes much of an impression.

Given that so much of the show is half-baked, the introduction of a high-end brothel with an “Eyes Wide Shut” vibe just comes across as silly, not sexy. “Guilt” methodically presents viewers with a group of characters who may have murdered Grace’s unlucky flatmate — and one of the suspects, it is hinted, is a member of Britain’s royal family. But in its first two episodes, it fails to give them or their predicaments the kind of frothy, propulsive energy a good murder-driven soap needs.

If anything, “Guilt” makes one yearn for the day that the television industry will come up with a smartly written, light-on-its-feet legal thriller starring the lively and watchable Zane. The fact that it hasn’t done so yet is a much more compelling mystery than anything that occurs here.

It would be unwise to accuse Freeform’s new mystery drama Guilt (premiering Monday at 9/8c) of playing innocent. Not only does it feature a central protagonist who may have killed her roommate, but there are also plenty of other scandalous elements.

ABC is staying in business with Shonda Rhimes.

The mega-producer has landed yet another series at the network, with “Still Star-Crossed” being handed a series order for the 2016-2017 season.

Plus, Shondaland’s newest show, “The Catch,” has been renewed for Season 2.

Based on Melinda Taub’s book of the same name, “Still Star-Crossed” picks up where the famous story of Romeo and Juliet ends, charting the treachery, palace intrigue and ill-fated romances of the Montagues and Capulets in the wake of the young lovers’ tragic fate.

The cast includes Wade Briggs as Benvolio Montague, Anthony Head as Lord Silvestro Capulet, Zuleikha Robinson as Lady Guiliana Capulet, Lashana Lynch as Rosaline, Ebonee Noel as Livia, Sterling Sulieman as Prince Escalus, »
