Trump’s Secretary of Defense Was Portrayed in HBO’s ‘Generation Kill’ – Watch How

4 December 2016 3:57 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

James Mattis, the retired Us Marine Corps general who this week was appointed as Donald Trump’s Secretary of Defense, may be familiar to viewers of HBO’s “Generation Kill.”

That’s because he was portrayed in multiple episodes of the 2008 miniseries by actor Robert Burke. Based on the award-winning book by Evan Wright, the seven-part show followed the highly trained Marines of First Recon Battalion through the first 40 days of the Iraq war.

Mattis is a war veteran who has led expeditionary forces in Afghanistan and Iraq, and was once named “the most revered Marine in a generation” by Marine Corps Times.

The clip below is an excerpt from “Generation Kill” that shows General Mattis making his appearance on the Msr and sharing some colorful words with the other men.

Oz: revisiting HBO's influential prison drama

23 October 2016 4:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Jamie Andrew Nov 7, 2016

We revisit HBO's sterling and seminal prison drama Oz on the run-up to its 20th anniversary...

Oz is sometimes criminally overlooked in the pantheon of TV dramas, which is a great sin indeed; not only because the show is the obvious grand-or-God parent to a multitude of modern classics (without Oz, it's doubtful whether The Sopranos would've existed), but also because it's an immaculately acted, endlessly compelling, emotionally resonant powerhouse of a show that demands – and deserves – recognition and respect.

These days we're inured to the darkness that pervades our favourite, highest-rated shows; desensitised to the violence that sweeps down from Westeros to Baltimore, via Fargo and Albuquerque. Anti-heroes have almost become de rigueur, to the point where a return to the chiselled-chinned, morally-flawless supermen of network TV's heyday is »

Blindspot Review: The Mob and The Mother

12 October 2016 11:27 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

How many members of the Irish Mob does it take to kill one former mob leader? And how many times can Kurt Weller's ex-girlfriend turned mother of his child be a pain in the behind? Those are the two primary issues at the heart of Blindspot Season 2 Episode 5.

"Condone Untidiest Thefts" feels like an effort to get Allison Knight back into the action. It's very convenient that she happens to be friends with the sister of the team's prime suspect Patrick O'Malley and that he'll only talk to her. Plus, when she tells Weller beforehand that it will be fine, that's TV's universal sign that things will not be fine.

Allison wasn't a likeable character before and she isn't now, constantly arguing with Weller on both the professional and personal fronts. Even if you set aside the plausibility of her being able to be involved in the case given her »

‘High Maintenance’ Review: The First Great Web Series Is Now HBO’s Best New Show

16 September 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

There wasn’t much competition for quality among web series when “High Maintenance” launched on Vimeo in 2012, but the show went beyond raising the bar to invent a whole new set of expectations. The self-distributed effort by couple Katja Blichfeld and Ben Sinclair provided a freewheeling mirror into the ironies and contradictions of modern New York, with a beautiful command of several tones that it juggled with ease. The appeal of this sprawling urban portrait, in which an amiable bearded weed dealer known only as The Guy (Sinclair) provided the only connective tissue, stemmed from the sense that anything and anyone could become a part of its ever-expanding universe.

Blichfeld, Sinclair and their army of close-knit collaborators developed a tapestry of small moments that spoke to a larger vision — a city that was funny, ridiculous, sweet and sometimes a little bit sad. Like the drug sold to new clientele in each episode, »

Film Review: ‘Equity’ Tells a Story of Women in High Finance

14 August 2016 9:29 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The key moment in “Equity” is early in the film. The main character was asked at a seminar why she got into high level finance. She paused for a second, and said “money.” The gals can be just as greedy as the guys, and their stakes in that greed can be just as exploitable.

Rating: 3.5/5.0

But this isn’t about greed as much as the madness of financial pursuit. It is portrayed as an addictive high, hard to let go of no matter how much has been added to the bank account. And there are always rivals, and at that level they’ll stop at nothing to get advantage. This is a human story created by women, and not so much a cautionary tale but a lesson in the status quo. The pacing of this story is deliberate, to a fault, yet the humanity is true. There is no evolution in competition, »

Outcast episode 4 review: A Wrath Unseen

Robert Kirkman's Outcast is back to bleak business as usual in its latest episode, A Wrath Unseen…

This review contains spoilers.

1.4 A Wrath Unseen

Now that felt like the kind of episode a series can be built on.

Outcast’s previous episode diverged from its continuing story to set up a procedural template that shifted focus away from our developing cast of characters and to some extent, derailed its momentum. This week spent the entire hour familiarising us with the residents of Rome, Wv and was much stronger for it.

Megan and Mark’s All-American household now feels as if it’s populated by real people we want to know more about instead of just a meathead cop and a fusspot with an unhealthy interest in the relative consistency of her adopted brother’s stools.

Megan’s development even played satisfyingly on our prejudiced assumptions about her character. »

Outcast episode 3 review: All Alone Now

Outcast certainly looks the part, but underneath the tasteful visuals, is it really the quality horror it announces itself to be?

This review contains spoilers.

1.3 All Alone Now

The synopsis for Outcast’s third episode reads: “Kyle and Anderson confront an unusual possession”. You need only substitute Mulder and Scully or Dean and Sam for those names to see how this show could take a turn towards the procedural. All Alone Now’s freak-of-the-week structure could form a pattern for future episodes: a cold open introduces new characters and a new demon, then Kyle and Anderson arrive to daub the possessed with holy water and aggressively punch them in the head. Get the central double-act right and it’s a formula that could run and run.

A gloomier answer to Supernatural though, is a step down from what Outcast initially promised to be. Its design, direction and »
