Marvel's Luke Cage spoiler-free review

7 September 2016 6:09 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mike Cecchini Sep 7, 2016

Our Us chums give a spoiler-free verdict on Marvel's Luke Cage Netflix series, which is chock full of cinematic ambition and atmosphere...

This Luke Cage review contains No spoilers, so read on with confidence! It is based on the first seven of thirteen episodes.

Luke Cage lacks the eye-popping martial arts choreography of Daredevil or the heart-pounding psychological terror of Jessica Jones. The night-time seediness of the Marvel’s fictional version of Hell’s Kitchen is replaced by the summery daytime promises of NYC’s resurgent Harlem neighbourhoods. But like its predecessors, Luke Cage boasts an excellent cast, tremendous atmosphere, and a willingness to go places that other Marvel Studios productions can’t. And it brings a few fun twists to the party, too.

As the series opens, Luke is just trying to keep a low profile, sweeping floors in a barbershop, washing dishes in a nightclub, »

Abe Vigoda: 13 Things You Didn’t Know About ‘Godfather,’ ‘Barney Miller’ Actor

26 January 2016 8:49 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Before there was Tessio, before there was Fish, Abe Vigoda made his name on the stage.

In the 1950s and ‘60s, the actor who died Tuesday at 94 did everything from Shakespeare to musical comedies, from Broadway to Baltimore, from New Haven to San Francisco. His movie career took off after “The Godfather” in 1972, but he was still playing heavies on “Hawaii Five-0” and “The Rockford Files” after the first “Barney Miller” pilot aired in 1974.

Vigoda was such a fan favorite as “Barney Miller’s” Det. Fish that producers quickly ginned up a spinoff after the show’s first season. But behind the scenes, Vigoda and producers tussled publicly over money matters, a spat that played out in the pages of Variety like so many salary fights before and since.

Here are 13 things you didn’t know about Abe Vigoda:

Barney Miller: Abe Vigoda Dies at 94, Farewell Det Fish

26 January 2016 7:19 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Best known as Detective Phil Fish from the Barney Miller TV series and its spin-off, Fish, Abe Vigoda passed away today, January 26, at the age of 94. This character actor appeared on the now-cancelled soap operas Dark Shadows, As the World Turns, and Santa Barbara. He also recurred in three episodes of the 2000 comedy series, Manhattan Az, which was cancelled by USA Network, before his episodes aired.

Although coming to TV and film later in his career, Mr. Vigoda had a list of credits a mile long. Arguably, his two biggest roles were in The Godfather and The Godfather: Part II films, as mafioso Sal Tessio, of Don Corleone's organization. Vigoda would later voice the character for a number of Godfather-themed video games.

Veteran Actor Abe Vigoda Dead At Age 94; "The Godfather" And "Barney Miller" Among His Credits

Vigoda (left) with Richard Castellano and Marlon Brando in "The Godfather" (1972)

By Lee Pfeiffer

Abe Vigoda, whose hang-dog expression and low-key mannerisms help propel him to fame, has passed away at age 94. Vigoda toiled in films and TV without notable success until director Francis Ford Coppola cast him in the key role of Tessio, a mob lieutenant in the Corleone crime family in the 1972 classic "The Godfather".  Tessio was one of the most trusted "employees" of the Corleone family but following the death of its patriarch Vito Corleone, Tessio is discovered to be planning the assassination of the new godfather, Michael Corleone. Memorably he is led away to his execution with typical understated emotion. Vigoda's stock in the film industry rose immediately and he became a popular character actor, appearing in such films as "The Cheap Detective", "The Don is Dead", "Newman's Law", "Look Who's Talking" and "The Cannonball Run II »

La Times the Academy has clarified some of its new rulings on membership due to confusion from within its own ranks - very useful info

In Contention Kris Tapley has some thoughts on that as well and depressingly mentions there is still talk of "expanding" the acting categories. This will be very hard for yours truly to stomach if it happens. Traditions are important (and no I dont mean traditions of discrimination - don't confuse the issue!). Changing an 80 year tradition of a set of five slots in no way helps diversity and may actually serve to make the Academy look much much worse sending an accidental message (you weren't good enough for five but maybe with seven -- oops you weren't good enough for seven either!) so I pray to all the cinematic gods that wiser heads prevail and they reject it.
