TV Reviews: “Once Upon A Time,” Season 1, Episode 19, “The Return”
Once Upon A Time
“The Return” Air Date: 4/22/12
This week’s episode, aptly titled “The Return” if only because Once Upon A Time is back on the air after a three week break, delves more into Rumpelstiltskin’s back story. Like Samuel Adams, giving Robert Carlyle the spotlight is always a good decision.
We return to Storybrooke following a big twist. Turns out, Kathryn is not so dead after all. She was in a car crash, kidnapped, fed in a dark basement somewhere, and then freed. Clearly the heart’s DNA results were tampered with. She has no idea who her captor may be, but we know it’s got to be Mr. Gold or Regina.
Regina confronts Mr. Gold and accuses him of breaking his deal. Mr. Gold explains that he’s only broken one deal in his life, and that this wasn’t one of them. He merely »

TV Reviews: “Grimm,” Season 1, Episode 18, “Cat and Mouse”
“Cat and Mouse” Air Date: 4/20/12
Along with Once Upon A Time, Grimm was heralded as another harbinger for the fairy tale boom to come. But, after breezing through the first seventeen episodes in short order to catch up, I found that that’s a misnomer. Yes, this series, set in Portland, Oregon (great to have a show set there besides Portlandia), revolves around Detective Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli), a descendant of the Grimm family (the brothers that wrote them books), who has the ability to see if someone is really a supernatural creature, or a Wesen (pronounced vessen), and is tasked with hunting them down. He is referred to as a “grimm” by these very creatures. But he doesn’t stumble upon any fairy tale characters or premises like in Ouat, he merely finds that there’s a lot of bad guys muddying up his case load that are really furry beasts. »

Is Jessica Chastain back in the mix for Iron Man 3?
Tony Stark might mingle with another smart, sexy lady. Also, what's with him and redheads/ladies of the strawberry blonde variety? Iron Man 3 may have gained Jessica Chastain. It was rumored that she would be joining early on, but wasn't sure due to scheduling between a movie with Joel Edgerton and Samantha Morton and Kathryn Bigelow's next. Now it seems that the scheduling has been worked out so that Chastain can take a role alongside Robert Downey Jr. Since Shane Black and Drew Pearce »

Tribeca 2012 Review: In Replicas Hysteria Isn't Always Enough
The sense of dread and terror first time director Jeremy Power Regimbal sets in the opening moments of Replicas is potent, and remains so, until that creeping, crawling something-is-a-miss turns into out and out hysteria by the film's mid-point. It is effective stuff to be sure, handled with more than adequate filmmaking prowess, but by ordeal's end Replicas feels just a step up from your formulaic home-invasion thriller. So what makes it worth a cautious recommendation? Well, read on.After the accidental death of their young daughter, Mary and Mark Hughes (Selma Blair & Josh Close) take their son Brendon to their vacation home in the woods. The quiet time and space away from their busy urban life is needed; it is clear Mary and Mark's »

Exclusive Interview: Writer/Director Robin Hardy on The Wicker Tree, Completing his Trilogy and More
It has been almost forty years now since writer/director Robin Hardy first mystified audiences with his uber-eccentric cult classic The Wicker Man, and now the UK filmmaker is back with his companion tale, the darkly comedic The Wicker Tree.
Starring newcomers Brittania Nicol and Henry Garrett as well Graham McTavish and Christopher Lee, The Wicker Tree is centered around two young missionaries who travel to a small village in Scotland where they hope to spread the gospel of Jesus; unaware of any sinister plans, the pair get caught in the middle of a ritual which will force them both to make the 'ultimate sacrifice' in the end.
Recently Dread Central had the opportunity to chat with Hardy about his follow-up efforts on The Wicker Tree as well as why this latest film isn't really a sequel and why his third film in the Wicker trilogy may end up being »
Full Trailer For Korean Ping Pong Drama As One
[Update: Added English-subtitled version of the trailer.]Every great sports movie needs adversity to overcome and in the process of the competition, an unlikely camaraderie bond is forged among the teammates. Through unity, the human spirit has been lifted, leading them to the path of glory.

TV Reviews: “Fringe,” Season 4, Episode 19, “Letters of Transit”
“Letters of Transit” Air Date: 4/20/12
In seems about every month this season that Fringe delivers a massive episode in terms of overall story arc, featuring twists and an unreal shock factor. “Letters of Transit” was the second such episode of the past three. Beginning with a Star Wars-like crawl, we discover that the Observers, formerly intent on just watching the foibles of humanity, seized control in 2015, leading to an all-out war, where the Fringe team was ultimately defeated, and are only allowed to continue to function in a limited capacity as a police for the “natives,” the human survivors of the Observer’s conquest. The “loyalists” are marked individuals that allied themselves with the Observers, and resistance is largely futile, until now. Or something like that.
After taking that punch in the stomach (and watching an entirely unique, internment camp-esque opening sequence), the action opens in 2036, on a »

TV Reviews: “Game of Thrones,” Season 2, Episode 4, “Garden of Bones”
My favorite character
“Garden of Bones” Air Date: 4/22/12
Another week, and another two locations are added to the ever widening map of Westeros and beyond. Arya and company find themselves enslaved at the accursed Harrenhal, while after a week layover, Daenerys and her starving followers reach the greatest city that ever was or ever will be: Qarth (pronounced Karth, not Quarth, Daeny, jeez).
The action begins, at night, with two hapless guardsmen yapping and gossiping about the realm, and ends with their bodies lifeless on the muddy earth. Chalk it up to another victory for the King of the North, Robb Stark, with Grey Wind – his direwolf – leading the way. In the morning, bodies are littered everywhere, and Robb’s taken with the feisty and fearless Doreah (Roxanne McKee) – a woman on neither side – helping the wounded. We’ll be seeing more of her.
