House Of Cards Season 3 Review

26 February 2015 7:10 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This review was based off the first six episodes of season 3, which were provided to us prior to broadcast.

After two seasons of plotting and scheming to get what’s owed to him, Frank Underwood spends the first few episodes of House of Cards’ third season trying to pass an agenda that only he could give America: a proactive foreign policy and a vicious new jobs program that aims to roll back entitlements. Disagree with President Underwood? So long, you’re off the team! Please don’t make a scene as you leave the White House, we’ll bring your things to you in the lobby. Hardball is fun when you’re leader of the Free World, but even the President of the United States has his limitations, as Frank learns to his growing frustration.

House of Cards‘ third season truly owns the dark side of politics, and with Frank »

In Praise of the Flash-Forward Finale

25 February 2015 11:30 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

I cried during last night's Parks and Recreation finale because I'm not a monster. Of course I cried. Everyone lives so happily ever after! Leslie had such a great explanation of why one might want to have children! You could even hear Mouse Rat's greatest hits playing. Viva sincerity. That explains most of why I cried, but a tiny bit was residual crying from Parenthood's very similar flash-forward-oriented series finale a few weeks ago. If this becomes the go-to way for shows to end, that is more than fine by me.This device has been executed gracefully over the years. Six Feet Under is the high-water mark for this kind of finale, but showing how everyone dies only makes sense on a show about … well, how everyone dies. The West Wing put a slightly gentler spin on it, showing everyone several years into the future. They did it briefly, but »

The 'Parks and Recreation' Finale: Too Much Wish-Fulfillment

25 February 2015 9:41 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Spoilers for the "Parks and Recreation" finale, obviously. "Parks and Recreation" has come a long way, starting as a clone of "The Office" and turning into the warmest, funniest political show on television. "Parks" has always been about people with deeply-rooted political and personal differences finding ways to come together; sometimes they won, sometimes they lost, but they were always able to regroup and find new ways to be happy. It's an idealistic show that never fell into the smug sermonizing of Aaron Sorkin's "The West Wing" or "The Newsroom." It was able to balance optimism with a hint of dissatisfaction (like when Leslie Knope was recalled from her city council position), and it made all of the wins feel hard-won. More than anything, it never forgot to stay funny while staying heartfelt. That careful balance tipped way over into the wish-fulfillment side in last night's finale, "One Last Ride, »

Glee Recap: I Do, I Do, I Do

21 February 2015 11:36 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Last night's episode of Glee transformed what was once a one-off joke about girl-on-girl action into a pair of wives, and made husbands out of two boys who were so obviously soul mates from the start. Marriage was much too hasty of a decision for both Brittany and Santana and Kurt and Blaine, and they're all far too young to be getting married in the first place. The episode was overly sentimental, unrealistic, and a tiny bit too preoccupied with fan service. It was also really, really lovely.There's definitely a precedent for television couples to get married when they're barely out of high school. Boy Meets World's Cory and Topanga make an excellent exhibit A. Plus, it's bordering on traditional to have a wedding braided into a show's final season — Parks and Recreation, The West Wing, Friends, Six Feet Under, and so many others — so really, there was »

Empire Recap: Modern Family

19 February 2015 8:35 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

At first, I thought “Our Dancing Days” was going to be another Empire episode where boneheaded moves would be made left and right, by both the characters and the show. Some of the characters make decisions so poorly thought-out in the beginning that Bill Engvall’s “Here’s Your Sign” bit kept running through my head.Let’s start with Lucious, who really can’t hide the fact that he’s dying anymore. As the episode begins, with him, Cookie, Vernon, Anika, and his bodyguards marching through the Empire Entertainment building, walking and talking like they’re on The West Wing or something, it appears obvious to everyone that dude is not looking good as they constantly ask him, “Are you all right?” After Cookie gets up in his grill and reads him a bit too far, he eventually passes out on the floor of his office, sending him to the hospital. »

10 Problems With House Of Cards Nobody Wants To Admit

18 February 2015 11:17 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Netflix

The internet practically tore itself apart recently when Netflix debuted the third season of its first huge in-house hit almost a month earlier than planned. Then it transpired that the next instalment of House Of Cards had been dropped by accident, and the streaming service quickly removed the episodes, causing just as much consternation as their addition did.

People are crazy for House Of Cards. It wasn’t Netflix’s first attempt at producing original programming but it was their first real success, and with good reason: the amount of money and talent they pumped into it (David Fincher! Robin Wright! Kevin Spacey!) paid off in huge ratings, critical acclaim, and a trophy cabinet heaving with Emmys.

It’s a fine show. It’s got a distinct visual look courtesy of Fincher, a crazy good cast between Spacey, Wright and young up-and-comers Kate Mara, Corey Stoll and that guy »

TV Review: ‘House of Cards,’ Season 3

18 February 2015 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

House of Cards” returns, and in terms of classy actors in a high-stakes setting, it’s solidly entertaining. Still, the series that set Netflix on the path to programming prestige also feels played out, as if it should have retired without seeking a third term. Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright remain splendid as the central couple, but with their quest for power having succeeded, series architect Beau Willimon seems forced to resort to unconvincing contortions to maintain the drama. Even then, the first half of Season 3 feels flimsy, having essentially morphed into an inordinately ruthless version of “The West Wing.”

Those caught up on the first two seasons will know by now that Spacey’s Frank Underwood wheedled and schemed his way from Congress to the vice presidency to the Oval Office, knocking down a surprisingly ineffective assortment of barriers to his ascent. Indeed, a lingering criticism of the show »

First Look: Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams & More in 'Spotlight'

6 February 2015 10:38 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Last year, we heard about the new drama Spotlight, the latest film from Win Win and The Station Agent director Tom McCarthy. The film focuses on the story of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Boston Globe journalists who exposed the Catholic Church's decades-long cover-up of child molestation in Massachusetts, and a stellar cast was announced last year including Michael Keaton, Liev Schreiber, Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, John Slattery and more. Now they all appear, along with Brian d'Arcy, in the first photo from the film which takes its title from the Spotlight Team of reporters who discovered this story. Here's the first photo from Tom McCarthy's Spotlight from ScreenDaily: Spotlight is directed by Tom McCarthy (The Cobbler, Win Win, The Station Agent) who co-wrote the script with "The West Wing" writer Josh Singer.

The Definitive Movies of 1995

30 January 2015 8:01 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The 1990′s introduced the world to Quentin Tarantino, saw the creation of the Nc-17 rating, and began the slow call toward fully computer animated films. It began the slow (still slow) movement toward a more diverse industry, with the first African-American director earning an Oscar nomination (John Singleton for “Boyz in the Hood”). And the year after one of the greatest years in the history of film, 1995 came plodding along, trying to keep up. So, for the first definitive list of 2015, we are going to look back 20 years at a year that, at first glance, doesn’t look so hot. It’s ripe with flops, but it’s also full of debuts, trailblazing beginnings, and better films than it gets credit for. But, the caveat still stands: this is not a “best of” list. In fact, there are a lot of bad movies on this list. But, they are movies that made a cultural impact, »

Sundance Review: 'Take Me to the River' Announces the Arrival of a Promising New Filmmaking Talent

30 January 2015 2:15 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In "Take Me to the River," Logan Miller excels as a young gay man at once comfortable with his sexual identity while concealing it from an extended family largely for the comfort of his parents. Miller, who also appears in the Sundance title "The Stanford Prison Experiment," nails every note of his character’s disaffection and chronic discomfort at a chaotic family reunion in Nebraska. Writer-director Matt Sobel's quietly engaging debut is one of the great discoveries of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival: His fish-out-of-water observations have a personal edge — the film is shot partly on his own extended family's Nebraskan property — but it soon builds to a place of nightmarish psychosexual revelations. The film starts with 17-year-old Ryder (Miller) pleading to his parents, played by Robin Weigert and Richard Schiff (Toby on "The West Wing"), to allow him to tell his extended family at their reunion in Nebraska that »

Exploring the Gilroy Brothers' 'Nightcrawler' Blu-ray Audio Commentary

30 January 2015 11:51 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Blu-ray edition of writer/director Dan Gilroy's Nightcrawler streets on February 10 (available to stream right now) and it doesn't come with a wealth of features, but the audio commentary featuring Dan and his brothers Tony Gilroy, who served as producer, and John Gilroy, who served as the film's editor, is a fascinating listen. I took several notes while listening to the track but there are a couple things I have to say first, 1.) since they are brothers they sound very much alike and it's often difficult to tell them apart so don't expect too many direct quotes and 2.) while I can relay a lot of what I took away from the commentary it really stands as one you ought to listen to for yourself to entirely grasp everything they say. There is a very fluid motion to the conversation and frequently they'll discuss something entirely different from the »

2015: the year Netflix got serious

29 January 2015 3:03 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Between Marvel, sitcoms, and returning favourites, Netflix is producing more and more original content, here's what we can expect in 2015...

Not happy with being the undisputable king of subscription streaming TV and films, Netflix has spent the last few years finding its footing in creating original content. It's enjoyed some big hits with the likes of House Of Cards and Orange Is The New Black, but has also produced some less well-received properties such as Hemlock Grove and Arrested Development’s resurrection.

Marco Polo, the service's big budget drama following Mongolian leader Kublai Khan, was a sizeable risk for the network and one that didn't exactly lit the critical world alight (though a second season may well help with the teething problems).

Looking ahead, it seems that we’ll be seeing a new face of Netflix before the year is out. Netflix has more upcoming projects than ever before and »
