Enter: Deathstroke the Terminator to The CW’s Arrow. Run, Stephen Amell!

16 October 2012 1:19 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Way back in June we told you to look out for Deathstroke after seeing an initial Arrow tv teaser, and now, via IGN, you can see him in his full glory. Who is Deathstroke? Like I told you before, he’s a pretty significant and badass villain in DC Comics, part of classic runs in books like Teen Titans (which was DC’s equivalent to X-men back  in the 80s when both were Huge sellers) and making sweet appearances where he handles just about every Superhero you know (and many you may not) – at least for a minute – in Identity Crisis. I think the image is pretty hard.

In Arrow, Deathstroke, aka Slade Wilson, will be  played by Jeffrey Robinson and make his first appearance in the season’s 5th episode, titled “Damaged”.  before that, however, and next up, you have tomorrow night’s “Honor Thy Father” (1.02), and I’ve »

Q&A: Mary Elizabeth Winstead on Getting 'Smashed'

9 October 2012 12:06 PM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Like many a respected actress before her, Mary Elizabeth Winstead got her break running from peril — "Final Destination 3" and "Black Christmas" were among her first high profile credits — but her more recent roles have proved that "scream queen" barely scratches the surface of Winstead's repertoire.

We loved her as the untouchably cool object of Michael Cera's affections in "Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World" and a terrorized paleontologist in last year's prequel to "The Thing," but her new indie "Smashed" has industry professionals (including us) tossing around the O-word.

That word is "Oscar," if it wasn't clear.

In anticipation of "Smashed" arriving in theaters this weekend, we asked Winstead about playing drunk, her celebrity doppelganger and whether Bill Murray is her ultimate "Bill Murray figure."

So,  you know there's already some Oscar buzz over your role in "Smashed," right?

I have heard the word, sort of ... it's just crazy. »

Why DC Comics’ Continuity Still Exists

4 October 2012 7:54 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

I believe that all DC’s continuity still exists.

That may sound controversial (and it could just be the way my brain works), but I genuinely believe in that statement. I have followed the adventures of various comic book heroes for years and have gone back and read and researched stories from before, during and after the first Crisis on Infinite Earths and still believe that those stories also count. I believe that just as time is depicted as being a fluid changeable series of random events, so too is the continuity and stories of all the DC heroes. In fact, I see the characters following the time-line in their universe in much the same way as we do as readers.

I see it as a straight line in many respects. For example, all of the pre-crisis stories such as Superman fighting Lex Luthor on Lexor and the Flash traversing between parallel universes happened. »

White Collar Midseason Report Card: A-

29 September 2012 10:00 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

It’s been one heck of a summer run for White Collar.

And with the USA Network smash on hiatus - and already renewed for Season 5! - now seemed like the idea time to take a look back and grade what we've seen so far on Season 4, TV Fanatic Report Card style...

Best Episode: “Identity Crisis” was a fun episode that could have sent the cast of National Treasure running for the hills. The twists and turns regarding the Culper legacy had me wanting to hit the library for some follow-up reading. If only they knew that the treasure was real!

Best Teamwork Moment: The scene between Elizabeth, Peter, Sara and Neal in “Compromising Positions” was a delightfully unexpected moment of solidarity between the four. As awkward as it was to hear and see Elizabeth and Neal give Peter and Sara tips on how to pose for salacious photos to »

White Collar "Identity Crisis" Review: National Treasure Pleasure (With Bonus Matt Bomer Gallery!)

22 August 2012 7:00 PM, PDT | TV.com | See recent TV.com news »

White Collar S04E06: "Identity Crisis"

Last week's episode of White Collar was a fairly standard art heist plotline but represented something of a watershed for this show: Diana has an inner life too! Most procedurals tend to suffer from a lack of character work, so it can be a breath of fresh air to see formerly stoic or mysterious team members thrust into highly dramatic situations. Speaking of breaths of fresh air: How...  More >> »

White Collar Review: National Treasures

21 August 2012 9:00 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

White Collar continued its winning streak of smart, sophisticated and gripping episodes in its fourth season. No one can ever accuse this show of suffering an "Identity Crisis."

From Mozzie's uncompromisable belief in the idea of his parents being spies to the unfathomable conspiracy that unfolded before his eyes, there was no question that this episode had National Treasure written all over it!

 

I fancy myself quite the Revolutionary War buff, but White Collar had something to teach me that even I didn't know. Raise you hand if you were privy to the existence - contested or not - of the famed Culper spies? Let alone contemplated their modern-day existence?

The National Treasure theme was a great fit for this show and this cast, and it was executed it brilliantly. They really could give Nicolas Cage and company a run for their money.

I love that it started with Mozzie »

‘White Collar’ Preview Clip: Mozzie Goes ‘Storage Wars’ and ‘Decoded’

21 August 2012 6:31 AM, PDT | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

In this preview clip for tonight’s White Collar episode, “Identity Crisis” Mozzie (Willie Garson) gets his “Yuuuuup!” on, bidding on an abandoned apartment building with June (Diahann Carroll).

Okay, thankfully Mozzie didn’t go Dave Hester in that clip but whenever I watch A&E’s Storage Wars, I wonder about the eccentrics that have enough cash flow to bid on storage units, or in this case, an abandoned apartment. This only builds our curiosity of the fascinating Mozzie, who we never know what he’s up to on any given moment, as well as how he acquires some of his antiquities. Now we know. We love these Mozzie-centric episodes and who doesn’t love an appearance with June?

Now this latest purchase by Mozzie is just the beginning of one of Mozzie’s adventures as he’s bound to find something in this apartment that will lead him, »

Morning Brew: Rosie is on the mend after a heart attack, "Glee" may get its spin-off after all

Good morning, Brewbies!

I'm glad you're here!

After Lea Michele tweeted a photo of herself and Chris Colfer reunited at last on the New York set of Glee, Vulture visited the set to see if the Kurt and Rachel Show is really turning into the long-fabled spin-off Ryan Murphy has been teasing since like 1998. Their verdict: Yeah, probably. And apparently things are a lot racier in a 9:00 timeslot outside of Ohio. The article mentions a lot of humping and grinding and hands headed "downtown" during Rachel's performance of "Oops! I Did It Again." It's Glee all grown/raunched-up.

Elsewhere in Lima: "When we wandered back to Brittany’s bedroom in Ohio, the track for Spears’s super sad break-up song “Everytime” kicked in. There was Heather Morris lying face-down on her bed, miserable without Santana, who’s far away and cheerleading for the University of Louisville. »

Tonight on White Collar: On the Hunt For a Lost American Treasure (Sneak Peeks)

Tonight on White Collar: On the Hunt For a Lost American Treasure (Sneak Peeks)

Conspiracy, spies and George Washington are all one the menu tonight on White Collar as Mozzie (Willie Garson) believes that he has uncovered a major plot that could lead to the discovery of a lost American treasure. Warning light spoilers.

Last week there was some development in Neal's (Matt Bomer) quest to find out more about his past; however his actions almost led to another trip to prison as he was involved in the theft of an expensive piece of art. Luckily Neal informed Peter (Tim DeKay) of the deal that had gone down before it was too late and he acquired the information about Ellen (Judith Ives) in a mostly legal way with Peter's help. Neal once again assured Peter that he would keep him in the loop with his investigation into finding the allusive Sam, »

B-Sides: Alice Cooper's Identity Crisis

7 July 2012 12:24 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

This weekend’s B-Sides is dedicated to the memory of the late Alice Cooper. No, the horror rocker isn’t actually dead, but he was killed last weekend when he got punted to death in Syfy’s Bigfoot. Not the first time he was mauled on film by a hairy beast.

That last time was in the 1984 Spanish werewolf flick Monster Dog. As rock star Vincent Raven returning to his hometown to film a new music video, Alice Cooper found himself nose-to-snout with a lupine nightmare with a taste for Eighties musicians.

The music video is for a song titled “Identity Crisis” Cooper composed exclusively for Monster Dog. The clip you are about to see is from the music video shoot that opens the film.

For over 15 years “Identity Crisis” was only available in the form you are about to see and heard later on playing again over the closing credits of Monster Dog. »

The Amazing Spider-Man Marketing Hype – “Be Amazing”

18 June 2012 7:13 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

After the huge box-office success of Marvel’s The Avengers earlier this, year the bar has been set extraordinarily high for the rest of 2012′s comic book adaptations. Namely Chris Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises and Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man have a lot to live up to.

In this week’s installment of “hype” I’m looking at the excitement surrounding the July 3rd arrival of everyones favourite web-slinger.

 

NYC Spider-Man Celebration Week

One of the most spectacular aspects of the marketing campaign surrounding The Amazing Spider-Man is a series of week long events taking place in Spidey’s home town NYC from the 25th June, leading up to the release of the film.

How clever of Sony Pictures to take over one of the most famous cities in the world, effectively using it as a giant multi-faceted billboard for their summer blockbuster. Events include spider themed »

Deathstroke Revealed in CW’s Arrow Teaser?

7 June 2012 2:23 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

This doesn’t look as awful as it could, though by far the coolest thing about this extended trailer of Arrow, sent to us by the CW, is what worries me the most. Let’s get back to that in a moment.

We’ve been talking about the show for months now, but it sure seemed like Arrow got a lot more solid at CW after The Avengers went on to world crush at theaters, with a member of the team that kind of looked badass with a bow-and-arrow in Hawkeye. Arrow, is of course the new CW show based on DC Comics’ own bow-and-arrow vigilante, Green Arrow. Smallville fans may recall the character, who was played by Justin Hartley.

Same property, different take and universe/continuity(for you comic book fans), as this Green Arrow is played by Stephen Amell. In this trailer it looks like he can more than handle the physicality, »

Person of Interest 1.18 'Identity Crisis' Review

30 March 2012 6:19 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Person of Interest 1.18 'Identity Crisis' Review

How can someone’s identity truly be defined? Is it merely how they are perceived by others or is it the measure of what a man (or woman) has done that dictates who they are? In the latest episode of Person of Interest both of these concepts were examined as a Poi popped up with two names and one social security number. While Finch and Reese split the tailing duties to figure out who the real Jordan Hester is, there’s a side storyline with Detective Carter meeting with yet another mysterious agent who claims that Reese needs to be taken down.

This story presents an interesting situation regarding John Reese. From all that we’ve seen at home we know that the past operations Reese has been involved with have actually happened. There have been flashbacks that attest to his domestic »

Person of Interest Review: Double Trouble

30 March 2012 1:20 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Person of Interest loves its twists and turns.

A lot of times those sharp changes in direction or dramatic reveals can prove to be predictable, and yes, its happened in a few episodes. For the most part, however, the show has managed to escape any sense of cheesiness or rolling-of-the-eye moments when those twists do happen, allowing for the intriguing plot lines to pull you forward, even if at the back of your mind you were getting ready to suspect one character was really the so called bad guy.

In the case of "Identity Crisis," the discovery that Jordan Hester wasn't one person living a double life but rather two people living one life was played out early on. There was no dragging on of the situation and instead it was more enjoyable watching Reese and Finch figure out who was the real Jordan.

It was easy to assume that »

Daily Briefing. Hong Sang-soo, Claude Lanzmann, Josef von Sternberg, Pierre Étaix…

4 March 2012 7:41 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

In the new March 2012 issue of the Brooklyn Rail, Colin Beckett previews a "five-film retrospective sampler" of work by Hong Sang-soo running at the Museum of the Moving Image from March 17 through 23: "Wherever his characters go, be it Paris or a Korean resort town, they do the same things: arrange themselves in complicated love triangles, treat others poorly, drink too much, then treat each other even worse. His deliberately artificial camera movements — long pans back and forth, and half-motivated zooms, mostly — treat real space the way a camera usually approaches a photograph or a painting: flattening it, drawing horizontal and diagonal lines to map its elements. He is concerned with atmosphere in the literal sense: the particular qualities of light and air in the types of spaces to which he obsessively returns: beaches, restaurants, apartments."

Hong's Tale of Cinema (2005) is not one of the five (which, by the way, »

Six Villains We Want To See On The Green Arrow Series

16 February 2012 12:35 PM, PST | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

by Ryan Rigley

Oliver Queen may not have the most extensive or colorful rogues gallery like some other well known DC heroes, but the emerald archer has been known to take on a number of foes from all across the DC Universe since his first appearance back in 1941. Whether they be Superman villains, Flash villains, or yes, even Batman villains, the Green Arrow never backs down from a fight. Which is truly admirable, considering that his only real "power" is being very good at archery.

The CW's "Smallville" was great in that it came jam-packed with special cameos from various well-known heroes and villains. We got to see a huge number of fan favorites, including but not limited to: Bizarro, Doomsday, Braniac, and even Oliver Queen himself! Here's hoping that they give the upcoming "Arrow" series gets a similar treatment.

Keep reading for six of the villains that we'd like to see on the show. »

The Game Episode 5.01 Review: Secrets

Welcome back, Sabers and SunbeamsI The Game just aired its fifth season premiere and man is there a lot to talk about from tonight's episode. The teaser alone sent Twitter and Facebook in a frenzy with its 'in media res' narrative opening the episode. However by the end of the hour, the hoopla turned into some pretty sharp criticism that echoed fan sentiments from last year. Despite the hot and cold reaction to the episode, it still had people talking and the conversation is only just beginning. Let's break down the events of the night:

Derwin's Attitude Is Now Officially A Recurring Character

We picked up right where Season Four left off with Derwin asking Melanie about her secret abortion and if it was his. Melanie reassured Derwin that it wasn't, but that wasn't good enough for Mr. Boom to swallow. The rest of the »
