Episode Recap: Fringe - 3.08: "Entrada"

4 December 2010 8:44 AM, PST | PopStar | See recent PopStar news »

He knows! Finally Peter knows! After he receives the call from the scared janitor on Liberty Island about Olivia's message, the little oddities about Bolivia (Anna Torv) seem to be clicking into place for our genius. Claiming that it was a cold call to Bolivia, Peter (Joshua Jackson) gets up and starts rummaging around in her laptop. He's unable to break her password when she awakens. Peter plays it off, claiming to be emailing a friend in Greece, and recites a famous quote in Greek to Bolivia. When she doesn't recognize it, his suspicions are confirmed. Of course, Bolivia is not slow either, and pulls a gun on him. Peter asks her about her mission, just as she forces him to inject himself with a paralyzing agent, and she escapes. At the typewriter antiques store, Bolivia sends a message to the Other Side: "Cover Blown. Extraction Needed." Covers are blown in more than one way, »

Episode Recap: Fringe - 3.05: "Amber 31422"

5 November 2010 10:30 AM, PDT | PopStar | See recent PopStar news »

Oh, how I missed my Fringe (TV). It messes with viewer perception, not to mention ratings, having these ridiculously long breaks in the middle of the stories. When we last left, Olivia (Anna Torv) was still on the Other Side, thinking that she's "their" Olivia, and Walternate (John Noble) wanted to put her in the new-style tank to jog her side-shifting abilities. And this side of the universal gap, Bolivia was getting some…well, Peter (Joshua Jackson). Sex is a great distraction from getting your cover blown. Olivia is still dealing with a pesky Peter vision following her around, telling her that she doesn't belong on this side, and being incredibly distractingly cute. Walternate wants her to start the procedures and experiments to see if she can cross over to the other side, like her supposed counterpart. Only we know that Walternate's plan hinges on Olivia regaining this ability, so »

2010 San Antonio Film Festival: Official Lineup

22 June 2010 6:00 AM, PDT | Underground Film Journal | See recent Underground Film Journal news »

The 16th annual San Antonio Film Festival, which runs June 23-27, is truly a great combination of celebrating local talent and international cinema, screening films produced in Texas to ones produced in Europe, South America and the Middle East.

There’s also a distinct flavor of socially aware fictional narratives and documentaries, including films about Tibetan refugees, migrant workers, the 2008 Presidential election, alcoholism and genocide. But, that’s not to say the fest is a totally serious affair as there’s also several genre films about the World Cup, sheep rustlers, dancers, crooks and other ne’er-do-wells. It looks like a fun mix.

The full lineup of films is below. The way the festival runs is that films screen in blocks in three different theaters. A “block” of films will generally contain a feature or two (feature = film that is 50 mins. or more), plus several shorts. In the lineup I have up, »

Promo – Fringe 2.21 "Over There, Part 1"

7 May 2010 10:21 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

It hardly seems like it's time, does it? Fringe's second (and best) season is drawing to a close, beginning on May 13 with "Over There, Part 1." And folks, it looks like a good one. It looks like we'll finally get to see Olivia cross over to the other dimension, and it doesn't exactly look like a fun place. First of all, Olivia's ginger. Not that I have anything against gingers — I'm a ginger myself — but Olivia just doesn't look right with red hair. Just like Charlie Francis doesn't look right bald. But Phillip Broyles certainly looks badass in the alternate universe, I'll give him that.

But first, there's the question of getting to the alternate universe. That's going to involve getting some of the Jacksonville kids back together, including Nick Lane from last season's "Bad Dreams." Last time we saw him, he was being put into a medically-induced coma and »

DVD Review: Great Acting Elevates ‘The Private Lives of Pippa Lee’

8 March 2010 10:22 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Is there anything more damaging to an actor’s performance than a Botox needle? It’s heartbreaking to see faces that were once so expressive become stiff and embalmed. Robin Wright is living proof that a naturally older appearance is infinitely preferable to a synthetically younger one. Her face has only gotten better with age, and has rarely been used to more mesmerizing effect than in “The Private Lives of Pippa Lee.”

This is the fourth film written and directed by Rebecca Miller, a versatile artist whose work has always been provocative and insightful, though it often fails to coalesce into a satisfying whole. Miller based “Pippa Lee” off of her own novel, and there are moments when the film seems as uneven and unstable as its titular protagonist. Though it occasionally stumbles into overwrought waters, the film maintains a playful, off-kilter charm that is quite appealing.

DVD Rating: »
