When good TV goes bad: how Battlestar Galactica became a holy mess

29 April 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

It was season three, when its quasi-religious leanings went into overdrive, that did for the 21st-century version of the cult sci-fi drama

Sci-fi in the 1970s was rambunctiously silly. Star Wars gave us space warriors with furry dog-faced alien sidekicks, while Doctor Who centred on a jelly-baby-munching time traveller with a penchant for scarves the length of The Great Wall of China. Less well remembered, but no less nutty, was 1978’s Battlestar Galactica, in which the last remnants of humanity flee through space from the evil Cylons, a race of shiny space-robot villains who all have voices like T-Pain.

The show lasted just two seasons before space-pilots Starbuck and Apollo were pensioned off to a retirement home for Luke Skywalker lookalikes. For decades, hardcore acolytes petitioned for a revival and few expected much when the Ronald D Moore-led reboot finally arrived in 2003. How to update a show whose worst excesses »

Sci-Fi world set to ‘live long and prosper’ thanks to the Tech industry

24 April 2017 1:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Half a century ago we were all going to be living in mile-high skyscrapers with floating cars for transport. As the new millennium came closer, you had more chance of meeting an alien who declared, “Nanu, nanu, shazbot” as a greeting.The major inventions of science fiction have yet to happen. Warp drive, teleporting, hover cars; they all remain the prerogative of fertile minds. Or do they?

Despite what we may think, much more of science fiction’s wizardry has come true than we credit. In-ear headphones were predicted by Ray Bradbury in his seminal novel, Fahrenheit 451. Apple, for one, are finding this to be a tidy revenue stream.

It’s not the only thing Bradbury looked into the future and saw. Mankind has long held a fascination with Mars and while Hg Wells War of the Worlds seems an unlikely outcome, colonisation as foreseen in the Martian Chronicles »

‘Apocalypse Child’ Sees Beauty and Pain Both Above and Below

Pick of the WeekApocalypse Child

What is it? A young man in the Filipino town of Baler suspects he may have been fathered by a certain American director who filmed a Vietnam war epic in town several years prior.

Why buy it? The identity of finding the truth about his father is a catalyst of sorts here, but it’s far from the focus of Mario Cornejo and co-writer Monster Jimenez’s beautiful, raw, and affecting film. Instead it’s the idea of escaping one’s past through self-deception and distraction that pervades the screen alongside gorgeous visuals and performances. You can’t look away no matter how much you may want to. There »

Movie Review – The Outcasts (2017)

13 April 2017 2:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Outcasts, 2017.

Directed by Peter Hutchings.

Starring Eden Sher, Victoria Justice, Ashley Rickards, Katie Chang, Jazmyn Richardson, Peyton List, Claudia Lee, Avan Jogia.

Synopsis:

Two high school girls, tired of being bullied by the popular kids, set out to unite opposing factions of outsiders at their school in hopes of realigning the social pecking order.

The Outcasts, the new teen comedy from director Peter Hutchings, is a wildly entertaining surprise. While the film itself at first comes across as a rather stereotypical, low-budget Mean Girls rip-off, it blossoms into an incredibly funny, occasionally touching, and very well acted piece of entertainment.

The story follows two nerdy best friends as they try to navigate their final year of high school. Science-y Mindy (an outstanding Eden Sher, of television’s The Middle) and music nut Jodi (Victoria Justice of the recent Rocky Horror remake) decide to end their struggles by approaching Queen »

Shane Black’s The Predator script said to have a “wicked sense of humour”

12 April 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Shane Black’s screenplay for his upcoming take on The Predator franchise is said to have “a wicked sense of humour”, according to one of the film’s stars.

Predator seems to be one of those series, like Terminator or Alien, that we will always go back to — either with original directors feeling the urge to continue what they started, or new talents coming along to try their hand.

There is a lot of positivity surrounding Shane Black’s attempt, with his movies known for their sharp wit and dynamic energy.

Well it seems his take on Predator won’t be any different, as star Sterling K. Brown has spoken to EW about the humour found in Black’s script.

“Shane has his whole take on it and it’s very different than the original Predator. It’s got a really wicked sense of humour to it, which I love about it. »

The Best and Worst Prequel TV Series — IndieWire Critics Survey

11 April 2017 10:25 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What does it take to make a good prequel TV series? (And feel free to include an example of a show that got it right or wrong.)

Allison Keene (@KeeneTV), Collider

A prequel TV series is the most successful when it uses familiar touchstones but creates its own world. “Hannibal” is probably the best example of this, where there were characters we recognized but the setting, experience, and modern time period were completely Bryan Fuller’s (wonderfully so). “Bates Motel” has been another positive example, especially as it nears its end. The time period is again modernized, but it keeps a surreal and retro feel. And »

Star Trek Continues Returns With Another Superb Episode

7 April 2017 3:55 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

For fans of classic Star Trek who want to see quality stories done in the spirt of the original series, you have a treat this week. The consistently excellent web series Star Trek Continues has put out its eighth episode, “Still Treads the Shadow”, and as usual, it does not disappoint. 

For those who’ve never seen the multi-award winning Star Trek Continues, don’t dismiss it as “just” a fan-made web show. That does the series an injustice. It’s more than that. As someone whose been a Star Trek fan for over 40 years, and grew up with William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy and the rest of the original crew of the USS Enterprise, I never ceased to be amazed by how well this show captures the essence of the great show I adored in my childhood. It’s a terrific homage, made by people who love the original Star Trek. »

Arnold Schwarzenegger reveals he rejected cameo in Shane Black’s The Predator

7 April 2017 2:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s upcoming slate has took a bit of a hammering this past week or so, what with Paramount letting his option on a Terminator Genisys sequel lapse, the plug being pulled on The Legend of Conan, and the action icon stating he won’t appear in The Expendables 4 unless Sylvester Stallone is on board.

Well, it seems we can also officially rule out a potential cameo in next year’s The Predator, with Arnie revealing to Yahoo! Movies that he did meet with director Shane Black about a return as Dutch, but rejected the opportunity.

“They asked me, and I read it, and I didn’t like it — whatever they offered,” said Arnold. “So I’m not going to do that, no. Except if there’s a chance that they rewrite it, or make it a more significant role. But the way it is now, no, I won’t do that. »

Exclusive: Director Richard Kelly and Jake Gyllenhaal on Why ‘Donnie Darko’ Still Resonates Today

6 April 2017 8:50 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

On Oct. 26, 2001, Donnie Darko, director Richard Kelly’s sci-fi film about a despondent teenager (Jake Gyllenhaal in his second major film role) who befriends a giant bunny named Frank (James Duval), was released in theaters. The film told a cryptic narrative of a high schooler who is sent on an existential journey after he escapes death from a falling jet engine and learns that the world has just over 28 days before it ends. In that time, Donnie fends off the torments of being a teen -- a testy older sister (Gyllenhaal’s real-life older sister, Maggie), concerned parents (Mary McDonnell and Holmes Osborne), overbearing teachers (Beth Grant), mild flirtations with a new female student (Jena Malone) -- while trying to figure out, in some ways, how to save the world.

“That was a movie that was more about the psychological journey of adolescence and the confusion of it all,” Gyllenhaal tells Et. And while it »

Q&A: Composer Cris Velasco on Resident Evil 7, Dimension 404, and Working with Clive Barker

For our latest Q&A feature, we caught up with composer Cris Velasco to discuss his work on Resident Evil 7, Hulu's Freakish, and RocketJump's Dimension 404, as well as collaborating with Clive Barker on some of the great imaginer's projects.

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Cris. Were you a fan of the horror genre growing up? Did the genre influence your music?

Cris Velasco: Oh yeah, absolutely. I used to watch Hellraiser 1 and 2 with a friend of mine almost every weekend. Chris Young's score became a significant influence on my own music early on.

You’ve worked on a wide range of video games over the years. How did you first get involved with that industry?

Cris Velasco: Hard work and tenacity are the keys. I spent about seven years trying to break into the industry after I graduated from UCLA. When »
