The Man In The High Castle, Season 1

Created by Frank Spotnitz

Released November 20th, 2015 by Amazon Prime

Over the years, many works of legendary author Philip K. Dick have been adapted for the screen. The latest adaptation comes to the small screen courtesy of Amazon Prime, whose newest original series brings his novel The Man In The High Castle from the page to the screen. Developed by Frank Spotnitz, the show’s first season presents a lot of fascinating ideas, and is worth a watch despite some missteps in characterisation.

The show’s exploration of the uneasy alliance between Japan and Germany, and how it develops over the course of the season, makes for a fascinating watch. The unequal power balance between the two Axis powers is made very clear, along with the revelation that both groups are very well aware of it, right from the pilot. The development of

The Man in the High Castle Recap: Secrets and Blame
The fifth episode of The Man in the High Castle deals with the fallout of the shooting of the crown prince, while also sending lead characters Juliana (Alexa Davalos) and Joe (Luke Kleintank) to opposite sides of the country. It's a tight, well-directed, and promising set-up for what's to come as we arrive at the halfway point of this season's narrative arc."The New Normal" picks up immediately after the end of the last episode. The crown prince of Japan was indeed shot, but not by a vengeful Frank Frink (Rupert Evans). As panic ensues, people see Frank with a gun in the crowd and blood on his hand. He drops Juliana's locket as he flees, hiding the weapon as medics tend to the crown prince. Wegener (Carsten Norgaard), Kido (Joel de la Fuente), and Tagomi (Cary Hiroyuki Tagawa) look on with concern. Of course, the area around the assassination

The Man In The High Castle Season 1 Review

Six episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

The premise of Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle is still as grimly transfixing today as it was back in 1962 when Philip K. Dick’s source-material novel first hit shelves: what if the Axis Powers had triumphed in World War II, conquering the United States and dividing it into a Nazi-controlled east, a Japan-ruled west and a lawless neutral zone in between? And as executed by renowned X-Files writer Frank Spotnitz, the series is every bit as nightmarishly gripping as its literary namesake, a portrait of alt-history America so richly, intricately sketched that it almost immediately feels that most chilling of adjectives for a show of this nature: plausible.

In The Man in the High Castle‘s chilling reality, the year is 1962, and the Führer, though alive, is old and graying. The prospect of his imminent death adds new complexity to

The Man In The High Castle pilot review

  • Den of Geek
If picked up, Amazon Pilot The Man In The High Castle could become as compulsive to watch as The Americans meets Lost...

This review contains spoilers.

1.1 The Man In The High Castle (Pilot)

Adapting the worlds of Philip K. Dick to visual media is always a tricky proposition. For whatever reason, the person who has done Dick's work the most justice is Ridley Scott in his production of Blade Runner. Even that was different from the source material, but it works brilliantly as a film thanks to Scott's pruning and shaping, and that's one of the reasons why Amazon Studios' adaptation of The Man In The High Castle has been greeted with such interest from fans of all things weird. After all, when you have Ridley Scott and The X-Files guru Frank Spotnitz attached to the same project, it seems like only good things can result.

The Three Musketeers - Blu-ray Review

Alexandre Dumas' heroes get an action-packed, CGI slick makeover in Paul W. S. Anderson's The Three Musketeers. While it might not be the best adaptation of Dumas' classic story, the film is popcorn fun and so over-the-top it is hard not to find something to enjoy. Based on Dumas' novel, the film's screenplay was written by Andrew Davies (Brideshead Revisited) and Alex Litvak (Predators) and stars Logan Lerman (3:10 to Yuma), Matthew Macfadyen (Robin Hood), Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil), Luke Evans (Immortals), Ray Stevenson (Punisher: War Zone), Christoph Waltz (The Green Hornet), Mads Mikkelsen, Orlando Bloom, Gabriella Wilde, Juno Temple, Freddie Fox, Til Schweiger, and Carsten Norgaard. The film opens on a quick history lesson of the state of

  • Film-Book
The Three Musketeers Trailer 2 has premiered. Paul W.S. Anderson‘s The Three Musketeers (2011) movie trailer 2 stars Milla Jovovich, Orlando Bloom, Ray Stevenson, Juno Temple, and Christoph Waltz. The Three Musketeers (2011)’s plot synopsis: “The hot-headed young D’Artagnan (Logan Lerman) along with three former legendary but now down on their luck Musketeers must unite and defeat a beautiful double agent and her villainous employer from seizing the French throne and engulfing Europe in war.”

We previously posted The Three Musketeers (2011) Movie Trailer. This movie trailer is much better than the first The Three Musketeers movie trailer. The action is certainly aggrandized and all the major players are laid out along with their motivations.

The Three Musketeers (2011) also stars Mads Mikkelsen, Matthew Macfadyen, Luke Evans, Til Schweiger, James Corden, Carsten Norgaard, Freddie Fox, Christian Oliver, and Gennadi Vengero. The film was adapted from Alexandre Dumas‘ novel and the script was written

The Three Musketeers (2011): Bloom, Waltz, Mikkelsen, Jovovich Movie Photos

  • Film-Book
The Three Musketeers Orlando Bloom, Christoph Waltz, Mads Mikkelsen, Milla Jovovich, Movie Photos has premiered. The Three Musketeers (2011) photos also feature Logan Lerman, Juno Temple, Luke Evans, Matthew Macfayden, Gabriella Wilde, and Ray Stevenson. The Three Musketeers (2011)’s plot synopsis:

The hot-headed young D’Artagnan (Logan Lerman) joins forces with three veteran Musketeers to prevent the villainous Cardinal Richelieu (Christoph Waltz) from seizing the French throne and engulfing Europe in war in this fast-paced, action-filled reboot of Alexandre Dumas’ classic 17th-century adventure.

When famed Musketeers Athos (Matthew Macfayden), Aramis (Luke Evans), and Porthos (Ray Stevenson) steal highly coveted project designs from a high-security vault, the sweet taste of success is short-lived. Their beautiful partner in crime, Milady (Milla Jovovich), drugs the trio and sells the designs to a higher bidder, the ultra-cool Englishman, Buckingham (Orlando Bloom). It’s a major blow to the famed swordsmen. So when, three years later,

'The Three Musketeers': More pictures released

  • Pop2it
Just under a week ago we got a new peek at Paul W.S. Anderson's "The Three Musketeers" 3-D adventure flick. Monday (May 2) we got a few more. First we have M'Lady De Winter (Milla Jovovich) strutting down the halls of the palace flanked by (from left) Aramis (Luke Evans), Athos (Matthew McFadyen) and Porthos (Ray Stevenson).

In the next photo, we have the four musketeers (having added Logan Lerman's D'Artagnan) standing before (from right) Cardinal Richelieu (Christoph Waltz), Queen Anne (Juno Temple) and who we think is Sergeant Jussac (Carsten Norgaard), a member of the court.

Finally, it looks like young D'Artagnan has himself a love interest in Gabriella Wilde's Constance. Looks like fun! "The Three Musketeers" opens nationwide Oct. 14, 2011.

The Three Musketeers (2011) Movie Trailer: Paul W.S. Anderson

I like the action but it did not need to be in 3D. That being said, this movie trailer is entertaining, even with the slow motion. I wonder if the slow motion would have been in the film if it was not in 3D.
