‘The Saint’ VOD Review

Stars: Adam Rayner, Eliza Dushku, Roger Moore, James Remar, Thomas Kretschmann, Enrique Murciano, Sammi Hanratty, Kirsty Mitchell, Yani Gellman, Greg Grunberg, Beatrice Rosen, Ian Ogilvy, Alec Secareanu, Sonalii Castillo, Christopher Villiers | Written by Jesse Alexander, Tony Giglio | Directed by Ernie Barbarash

An expanded version of a failed TV pilot, whose first trailer debuted waaay back in 2013, this iteration of The Saint is already on the backfoot before it begins. You have a rejected pilot, “fixed” with reshoots, Twice(!) – which is why Ernie Barbarash is now the credited director and not Simon West (Con Air, Tomb Raider) who is now credited as Executive Producer instead – and featuring not one but Two previous Saints in the cast, Roger Moore and Ian Ogilvy, just to remind you of how good both actors were in the role… Oh, and then there’s memories of the Val Kilmer movie to sour the audiences view

Spielberg at 70: drama, Jurassic Park, and the 1990s

Paul Bullock Dec 15, 2016

We continue to salute Steven Spielberg's 70th birthday, with a look at the decade that transformed his career: the 1990s

The 1990s delivered everything Steven Spielberg could have hoped for to enjoy a successful third decade in the film industry. He restated his position as Hollywood's King of the Blockbuster with Jurassic Park, he found critical and awards success with Schindler's List and Saving Private Ryan, and he used the platform the former offered to set up a charitable organisation (The Shoah Foundation) that’s gone on to become one of the most significant Holocaust resources in the world. By anybody's standards, that's a pretty solid ten-year stint. And yet, the 90s stands as arguably Spielberg's weakest period, a time of unqualified success and curious lethargy, a time of enriching experimentation and self-defeating regression. At times, Spielberg consciously seemed to take one step forwards and another backwards.

​Science fiction is more of a big deal now than it's ever been, thanks to our pals from that galaxy far, far away.

As "The X-Files" reboot approaches, here is a definitive ranking of the best sci-fi TV shows ever made. (Spoiler: "SeaQuest Dsv" isn't one of them. Sorry, Darwin fans.)

Sony remaking 80s flick Blue Thunder; will trade helicopters for drones

  • JoBlo
Your first thought of Roy Scheider may be Jaws or SeaQuest Dsv, but for me it will always be Blue Thunder. The 1983 action movie about a pilot using an enhanced military helicopter to patrol Los Angeles was one of my favorite movies growing up as a kid. The John Badham movie was not the greatest movie made but it had some pretty awesome aerial sequences. Now, the movie is being remade at Columbia Pictures with a significant change to the technology. According to The Hollywood Reporter,...

Michael Nankin interview: Defiance, latex, TV pilots and more

Interview Ryan Lambie 9 Apr 2013 - 07:21

With the launch of the Defiance series and TV show imminent, we spoke to producer and director Michael Nankin about its making...

The Syfy Channel is about to air what is surely its biggest experiment yet. Called Defiance, it’s a sci-fi series which not only employs some proven industry talent - not least writer Rockne S O’Bannon, of Alien Nation and SeaQuest Dsv fame, director and producer Michael Nankin, who previously helmed episodes of Battlestar Galactica and Alphas - but also coincides with the launch of the online shooter of the same name.

In a media first, Defiance the TV series and Defiance the videogame will share characters and storylines, with events in the show replicated in the online experience, too. It’s a concept that has roped in the creative minds from both Syfy and Trion Worlds, cost an undisclosed sum of money,

Defiance TV pilot: spoiler-free review

Review Ryan Lambie 8 Apr 2013 - 07:15

This month sees the premiere of Syfy's major new series, Defiance. Here's our spoiler-free review of the pilot episode...

Note: although free from spoilers, this review does touch on minor plot points from the pilot's first 45 minutes or so.

Launching a new television series can’t be an easy task. And when that show happens to be in the science fiction genre, you’re adding another tricky proposition into the mix: setting up an entire new world as well as introducing compelling characters and conflicts, all within a 60-to-90 minute package tidy and eye-catching enough to attract a healthy audience.

Syfy’s Defiance has a sterling pedigree, having sprung from the mind of Rockne S O’Bannon (he of Alien Nation and SeaQuest Dsv fame), while its executive producer and sometime director Michael Taylor previously wrote episodes of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Voyager and Battlestar Galactica.

Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome Trailer Leaked

Why couldn't the Viper vipe her nose? Because the adder had her... yeah, you've heard that one haven't you?

With a nod to our good friends over at Canada’s marvelous Space channel, we wanted to bring you the image below that is apparently from the long-anticipated Battlestar Galactica spin-off Blood and Chrome. Space and several other websites published the image today in connection with a leaked trailer for the (presumably) upcoming show.

We are expecting more action in this BSG incarnation than we saw in the short-lived and underrated Caprica and so much is suggested by the little that the image shows us. What it does indicate is that the series—which we hope to see officially revealed at a press event soon—will give nods to both Ron Moore’s reimagined BSG and the original series.

Image Conscious: A conversation with visual effects supervisor Eric Barba

Trevor Hogg chats with Academy Award-winning visual effects supervisor Eric Barba...

“It goes back to my love for the automobile and wanting to be a car designer,” explains Digital Domain Visual Effects Supervisor Eric Barba as to why he attended the Art Center College of Design situated in Pasadena, California. “One of the things that you learn in design school, and I certainly did at the Art Center, is your fundamentals. You learn colour theory, perspective, [and] composition over and over again; I drew on all that knowledge and background when I got into the visual effects business. It was very early on that I got in. A bunch of people knew how to operate a computer but there weren’t a lot of well-trained artists who knew how to use a computer and make beautiful imagery.” The young artist graduated into the world of advertising. “I did the first ever full CG car commercial.

Shanghai Mystery and A Modern Medusa: A Movie Review

*full disclosure: a DVD screener of this film was provided by Indican Pictures for review.

Director/writer: Oscar L. Costo.

Cast: Vivian Wu, Richard Burgi and Honglei Sun.

Shanghai Mystery (originally titled Shanghai Red) is one of those hugely character driven films where, if director Oscar L. Costco ("Seaquest Dsv") was driving, he must be moving at 20 miles per hour. The type of film he developed may not be for everyone. What he creates is a slow mystery drama that starts with a lady in a slinky red dress.

She arrives at a penthouse in Shanghai, shoots a 'client,' and gets caught. The rest of the film bounces between her time in prison, talking to a lawyer, and revealing her life in flashback.

Mei Li's (Vivian Wu, Strange World) life is explored in exquisite detail. Viewers first learns that her husband was killed during a business trip that she urged him to take.
