Wayward Pines Season 1 Episode 10 Review – ‘Cycle’

28 July 2015 5:01 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr reviews the season finale of Wayward Pines

This review has been started over three times now. I keep going back and deleting huge chunks of text because nothing feels right. Whether I am preoccupied or not it’s hard to say, but one thing is certain Wayward Pines deserves better. For a ‘mini drama’ which has consistently delivered every week for the last nine, it would be sad if this finale let the side down.

Thankfully what we get is a smartly paced conclusion which leaves a lot of narrative doors open. There is more than enough source material to continue Pines on into a second season, but whether a similar cast can be found remains an issue. Because ultimately what lifts this above the competition, are some stellar performances from world-class talent. After all with Oscar nominees, globally recognised character actors and a solid gold premise, by God you have a show. »

Wayward Pines, Ep. 1.10, “Cycle”: The circle is now complete

24 July 2015 7:45 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Wayward Pines, Season 1, Episode 10, “Cycle”

Written by The Duffer Brothers and Blake Crouch and Chad Hodge

Directed by Tim Hunter

Airs Thursdays at 9pm (Et) on Fox

Ever since Wayward Pines was announced as an M. Night Shyamalan project, the threat of the twist ending is one that’s hung over the entire series. For better or worse, Shyamalan’s name is associated with stories that try to come out of left field in the apex of the third act and surprise you with the idea that nothing you’ve witnessed is what it seems, ends that enjoy their trickiness so much it keeps them blind to the fact that they don’t bear up under scrutiny. And given the early ads for the show, which were heavy on that symbolism—as well as too heavy on imagery and quotes that invited unflattering Twin Peaks comparisons—it was hard to »

Ratings: Fox’s ‘Wayward Pines’ Ends on Strong Note

24 July 2015 9:23 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox’s “Wayward Pines” ended its season on a high Thursday, standing as the night’s — and most likely the week’s — top-rated scripted original in the key young-adults demo. Also of note on Thursday was another season high for ABC’s “Rookie Blue,” even while skedmates “The Astronaut Wives Club” and “Mistresses” slid.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, Fox’s “Wayward Pines” averaged a 1.2 rating/5 share in adults 18-49 and 3.9 million viewers overall in the 9 o’clock hour, matching its high in the demo. “Wayward” was already summer’s top-rated scripted program in adults 18-49 with a 1.92 rating in “live+3,” and its finale should also stand as the full week’s No. 1 scripted original in “live plus same-day.” There’s been no word regarding a possible second season of the M. Night Shyamalan drama starring Matt Dillon.

Elsewhere, CBS won Thursday behind “Big Brother” (1.8/7 in 18-49, 5.8 million »

‘Wayward Pines’ Ratings Surge In Finale, ‘Astronaut Wives Club’ Falls, ‘Big Brother’ Steady

24 July 2015 9:09 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

The final reckoning came on Wayward Pines (1.2/5) last night with the finale of the Fox 10-episode event series. And it seems like it was a good way to end things. Coming off a low last week, the M. Night Shyamalan, Chad Hodges, Donald De Line and Ashwin Rajan Ep'd mystery show based on Blake Crouch's novels was up 33% among adults 18-49 on Thursday. That matches the very DVR friendly Wayward Pines' high among the key demo in Live + Same Day results – a result the show… »

How The Final Twist of 'Wayward Pines' Spells Doom For Broadcast Television

24 July 2015 7:45 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After nine weeks of fairly effective build-up, the end of "Wayward Pines" arrived Thursday night. Or did it? Despite claims that Thursday night's tenth episode would be the last — Fox even billed it as a "series finale" in ads and on the show's official site — interviews with the showrunner, Chad Hodge, and executive producer M. Night Shyamalan appeared online minutes after the episode ended claiming a follow-up season could still happen. While Hodge said there had been "no official discussion" about a second season in his interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Shyamalan told Deadline he and Hodge met and came up with an "idea" for Season 2.  On the one hand, this is hardly a surprise. The ratings for "Wayward Pines" have been stellar, with the premiere setting a record for Fox and following episodes showing solid growth in DVR viewings. Audiences were staying current with the mystery series, and that's a valuable commodity in. »

Review: Wayward Pines, The Show That Is Not What It Seems To Be

23 July 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Halfway through the series Wayward Pines, episode five lands a serious twist, a bold move that might have arrived too soon, yet performs as a mighty cliffhanger and game-changer for the whole show. Wayward Pines is currently running on the Fox television network billed as an "event series", an adaptation of a book trilogy by Blake Crouch, who serves as consulting producer under the showrunning auspice of Chad Hodge of The Playboy Club. Before the official launch, one of the show´s PR magnets that temporarily clouded other aspects was the presence of M. Night Shyamalan, executive producer and the director of the pilot. For a brief moment, it almost looked the like famed The Sixth Sense director would be seeking artistic rebirth on the television turf,...

10 Cent Pistol | Review

22 July 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The Bonds of Bonding: Martin’s Debut a Choppy Crime Caper

Sustained by a likeable cast of notable character actors, screenwriter Michael C. Martin’s directorial debut 10 Cent Pistol sports similarities with his previous credit Brooklyn’s Finest (2009), which was directed by Antoine Fuqua. Multiple perspectives converge and crisscross over pulpy crime thriller tropes as cheaply manufactured as its titular toy would indicate, though its overly convoluted patch of twists, turns, and other maneuvers eventually belies a threadbare narrative by the time we get to the unveiling of the film’s ultra-mastermind. Taking place over familiar and commonly utilized Los Angeles terrain, this sun dappled rhinestone ultimately feels like another mean spirited, empty headed bauble, one whose ultimate moments of entertainment are dictated by the quality of the character in focus at any given moment.

Film Review: ‘H.’

21 July 2015 11:14 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After a mysterious meteor explosion, residents of a rural area in upstate New York begin to fall into what newscasters call “spontaneously induced narcoleptic states” — and unfortunately, so will audiences — in “H.,” an atmospheric yet impenetrable low-budget twist on end-is-nigh blockbusters, enigmatically crafted by hipster filmmaking duo Rania Attieh and Daniel Garcia. The first and only pic to put this critic to sleep on three separate viewings, “H.” imagines itself a cross between classic Greek tragedy and an M. Night Shyamalan creepfest, but was made in haste to qualify for the Venice Biennale’s College-Cinema Program, with the result that its many original and inspired ideas were forced into a cold, audience-alienating format. Beginning with berths at Sundance and Berlin, and boosted by an Independent Spirit “Someone to Watch” award, the confounding project has found widespread fest support, while commercial prospects look grim.

'Unbreakable 2' Has to Be a Very Different Movie Says Shyamalan

18 July 2015 11:38 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Once called the next Steven Spielberg, M. Night Shyamalan floated away on his hubris and drank his own Kool Aid. His first couple of movies are considered classics. The later half of his career has been riddled with one flop after the next. Now, he is poised for a comeback, with the indie horror movie The Visit. But as he sets out to launch this economic thriller that takes him back to his roots, the fan roar for a sequel to one of his earliest hits keeps growing louder day by day. We've heard murmurs that it could happen. And now, M. Night Shyamalan claims that an idea is indeed percolating. But Unbreakable 2 is not going to look, feel or sound like Unbreakable. The studio might not even touch it, as it doesn't really read as a sequel.

This sounds about right when looking at M. Night Shyamalan's career trajectory. »

M. Night Shyamalan Talks The Visit – Comic-Con (Video)

16 July 2015 2:46 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

M. Night Shyamalan returns to his roots with the terrifying story of a brother and sister who are sent to their grandparents’ remote Pennsylvania farm for a weeklong trip called The Visit, and in true M. Night form, things don’t necessarily go as planned. Last week, I got the chance to sit down with Shymalan in a small round table discussion about working outside of the film system. Check it out below.

A single mother sends her two young children to visit their grandparents on a remote Pennsylvania farm for a week-long trip, but the children discover that the elderly couple is involved in deeply disturbing activity, and the youngsters’ chances of getting back home look less and less likely with every minute that passes.

Writer/director/producer M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Signs, Unbreakable) and producer Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity, The Purge and Insidious series) welcome you to Universal PicturesThe Visit. »

6 Craziest Wayward Pines Moments So Far

14 July 2015 7:40 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Fox/Shymalan

When Fox announced that they would be adapting Blake Crouch’s critically acclaimed “Wayward Pines” trilogy into a ten episode serial, fans were naturally excited. Even the fact that the project was set to be helmed by the widely mocked M. Night Shyamalan and to star the relatively wooden Matt Dillon didn’t do much to dampen spirits.

To date, the show has aired eight of its ten episodes, and critical reception has grown increasingly positive as its mysteries, twists and bizarre characters have been revealed and unpacked. “Wayward Pines” is undoubtedly one of the most chaotic and confusing shows on television at the moment, bringing to mind “Lost”, “Twin Peaks” and “The Prisoner”, among other shows.

Ok, so admittedly Ben’s storyline (along with Charlie Tahan’s acting) leaves much to be desired, but once the (perhaps too) rapid pace slowed after the first couple of episodes, »

‘Arrow’ Star Stephen Amell Calls M. Night Shyamalan’s Publicist an ‘A–hole’

13 July 2015 4:14 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A certain supernatural filmmaker’s publicist apparently put a damper on “Arrow” star Stephen Amell’s time at Comic-Con last weekend.

Amell publicly slammed M. Night Shyamalan’s publicist, Kathryn Rowe (Amell left her unnamed in the post), on Sunday, calling her an “all-timer level a–hole.”

“What a wonderful Sdcc,” the actor wrote. “So many lovely people. Except M. Night Shyamalan’s publicist. She’s an all-timer level a–hole.”

What a wonderful Sdcc. So many lovely people. Except M. Night Shyamalan's publicist. She's an all-timer level asshole.

Stephen Amell (@amellywood) July 12, 2015

It’s not clear was prompted Amell to make the statement, and he did not elaborate further on Twitter. Shyamalan was at the San Diego convention to promote his new film “The Visit,” which hits theaters in September. “Arrow” held a panel for fans as well.

CAA, which reps Amell, did not immediately respond to request for comment. »

Sdcc: M. Night Shyamalan is still keen on an Unbreakable sequel, but “it has to be a completely original take”

12 July 2015 12:15 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite the fact that the movie was released fifteen years ago, it seems that M. Night Shyamalan can’t go a couple of months without being asked about the possibility of a sequel to Unbreakable, and sure enough IGN put the question to the filmmaker once again this weekend at the San Diego Comic-Con.

“The short answer to that is yes,” said Shyamalan when asked if he felt ready for an Unbreakable sequel. “I don’t want to do a traditional second movie, that turns me off. That’s what the benefit of doing a sequel is, everyone feeling familiar about the content, right? That actually turns me off about making movies, for me. It has to be a completely original take, if we were going to something unexpected. Unbreakable is about the ground take on the subject of comic books, a drama about the subject of comic books, and postulating whether this is quasi-possible, »
