Revisiting Star Trek Tng: Transfigurations

4 September 2014 11:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Enterprise rescues a mysterious patient in this week's Star Trek: Tng look-back. Here's James' take on Transfigurations...

This review contains spoilers.

3.25 Transfigurations

The Enterprise is enjoying some quiet time (Picard's phrase, not mine) so Geordie and Worf are hanging out in Ten Forward. Geordi is trying to catch the attention of Christy Henshaw, but is too shy to go and talk to her. When La Forge tries to stop Worf staring, Worf advises him that "you must let her see the fire in your eyes" - apparently oblivious to Geordi's lack of visible eyes.

This awkwardness is interrupted when Riker calls Geordi away, and the two head to a planet to investigate a crashed vessel. It's an escape pod with one badly injured survivor. They need to transport him to the ship, but his brain is too damaged and can't take the strain. Crusher rigs up the tricorder to »

Peter McAlevey, Former Executive with Disney, Michael Douglas, Dies at 58

17 August 2014 2:28 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Peter Claver McAlevey, a former Hollywood film executive, producer, and marketer, died August 15, 2014, in Los Angeles, California, following a short battle with liver cancer. He was 58.

McAlevey began his career as a staff writer for Newsweek magazine’s Inside Sports. He contributed to entertainment news, and was soon recruited by chairman Jeffrey Katzenberg to join the then-new regime at Disney. While at Disney, Michael Douglas asked Peter to help start Stonebridge, Douglas’ production company at Columbia Pictures.

There McAlevey produced multimillion-dollar hits such as “Flatliners,” “Double Impact,” and “Radio Flyer.” He later produced the Toronto Film Festival-winning and semi-autobiographical “Hard Promises.” McAlevey produced his latest film, horror/thriller “Kill Her, Not Me,” with his best friend, director George Francisco.

In 2008, McAlevey took a small, BBC co-production documentary, “Screamers,” and made it into an American Film Festival-award winner, a U.S. theatrical hit (No. 1 per-screen average its first weekend) and Cannes Film Festival debut. »

Kiefer Sutherland: 5 Awesome Performances And 5 That Sucked

2 May 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Summit Entertainment

As the son of acclaimed Canadian actor Donald Sutherland, Kiefer Sutherland always had a lot to live up to; renowned today for his distinctly husky voice, gruff characteristics and unabashed charisma, there’s no denying that Sutherland has managed to mark himself out as a wildly versatile talent. Indeed, Sutherland’s appeal doesn’t extend from his ability to play a single character type, despite the fact that many seem intent to peg him as a one-dimensional action star. Instead, Sutherland has succeeded in bringing all kinds of varied characters to life.

Best known today for his role as Agent Jack Bauer in TV’s 24 (a character so popular that Sutherland’s performance has near on overshadowed everything else in his filmography, for good or for worse), Sutherland is also remembered for an array of supporting characters in movies such as Stand By Me, The Lost Boys and Flatliners. »

Greatest TV Pilots: Queer As Folk – A Cultural Milestone

14 April 2014 11:08 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Queer As Folk, Season 1, Episode 1 “Pilot”

Directed by Charles McDougall

Written by Russell T. Davies

Original Air Date: 23 February 1999

That Certain Summer, a made for TV movie, airs as the ABC Movie of the Week. It is the first TV movie to deal with the subject of homosexuality cordially. In 1975, ABC debuts Hot l Baltimore, a short lived Norman Lear series, which features the first gay couple on TV. In 1991, the first kiss between a homosexual couple airs on network TV during an episode of L.A. Law. In 1989 an episode of the Us drama thirtysomething featured the first gay male couple to be shown in bed together. The brief clip is considered a TV landmark, and of course proved extremely controversial at the time. 

Ten years later, Russell T. Davies (who would go on to helm the current BBC revival of Doctor Who, as well as creating the spinoff Torchwood »

[A Brew To A Kill] ‘Flatliners’ and Wake Up Dead

5 February 2014 5:00 AM, PST | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

What happens in the moments before death? When the brain shuts down and those synapses fire for the last time, what is released? Maybe memories drift in and out. Is that where the cliche of life flashing before your eyes comes from? What if our darkest secrets and biggest sins were waiting?

Medical student, Nelson (Kiefer Sutherland) recruits four classmates for a dangerous experiment. He wants to flat-line for one minute and then be revived. With him is a freshly expelled, reckless Kevin Bacon, an uptight Oliver Platt, a womanizing William Baldwin and lastly a death obsessed Julia Roberts. After Nelson is successfully revived his cohorts compete for who flat-lines next and for how long. But it isn’t a harmless apparition, this malicious spirit wants blood and perhaps revenge.

I won’t waste any time scrutinizing the “science” in this movie. Besides the inconsistent morality is far more interesting. »

Walking Dead: The Science and Theories Behind Out-of-Body Experiences

23 January 2014 | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Our upcoming network premiere of The Ghostmaker on Sunday really has us thinking. The movie's all about a couple of college kids who stumble upon an old coffin full of gears that allow for a transcendental experience. Anyone who lays down in the coffin can use it to walk through our world as ghosts. We love the idea, and started researching out-of-body experiences. There are so many stories of people having near death experiences and other similar out-of-body feelings that we had to dig deeper. Hoaxes, hallucinations, or something stranger? You decide.

What is an Out-of-Body experience?

Just like its title suggests, an Out-of-body experience, or OBE, is a feeling of leaving one's body and traveling away from it. Scientists account for this phenomenon as a sort of physical hallucination. Some believe this is actually the spirit leaving the body. While others think this is just an over-exaggerated dream. No matter the outcome, »

Sosie Bacon may only be 21, but she has a lot going for her. On top of being 2014's Miss Golden Globe, through her father Kevin Bacon, she is connected to nearly everyone in Hollywood - including every other previous Miss Golden Globe, most of whom are also the daughters (or sons) of industry power players.
