‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Recap: “A Life Spent” – Enter the Thunderdome!

Welcome back, true believers! Following the introduction of a strange new world that the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. have been dropped into where the earth has been destroyed and the remnants of humanity are slaves to the Kree, Coulson and the gang attempt to find their way home while simultaneously fighting the nefarious dealings of the “Blues." While still clinging to the dark overtones of the fourth season, Season 5 tends to skew more often toward the nihilistic, brooding atmosphere closer to Battlestar Galactica more than anything else. This season is at its best when it …

Too Many TV Reboots/Remakes/Re-Vamp’s/Sequel Series Revivals/Prequel Series

I’ve been watching, among other things, the current reboot of ‘Will & Grace‘. One of, many, many, many new TV reboots that are occurring. Alright, I know, I’m not breaking any new ground, Hollywood’s not that original, blah, blah, blah. Still though, this TV reboot caught my attention. For one thing–really? This show you’re rebooting? I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love ‘Will & Grace‘ I actually I might argue that it’s one of the more underrated shows of all-time, and had it not been directly up against ‘CSI‘ for so many years, I think it might’ve won more Best Comedy Series Emmys than it actually did. It’s still one of only three series, ‘All in the Family‘ and ‘The Golden Girls‘ being the others, where every original main member of the regular cast won an acting Emmy for said series. I

Happy! Review: Syfy's Pitch-Black Shoot-'Em-Up Is a Wild Holiday Ride

Happy! Review: Syfy's Pitch-Black Shoot-'Em-Up Is a Wild Holiday Ride
If your idea of Christmas cheer is a drunk hit man coughing up blood in a dive-bar bathroom to the sounds of “Jingle Bells”… well, Syfy has a holiday treat for you.

To be clear, the network’s wild new graphic-novel adaptation Happy! — debuting this Wednesday at 10/9c — is most definitely not for everyone. It’s an adrenaline-charged roller coaster of sex, drugs and graphic violence, with a wickedly cynical sense of humor to boot. It’s relentlessly in-your-face, and the faint of heart (or of stomach) need not apply. But it’s also one hell of a ride, with gleefully over-the-top action sequences…

at the 20th anniversary of ‘Titanic,’ where are all the knockoffs?

December 2017 marks the 20th anniversary of the release of what would become one of the most lucrative and most deliriously popular movies ever made: James Cameron’s Titanic. It should also mark the 20th anniversary of the beginning of a wave of Titanic clones — and it says something about the movie industry that it doesn’t.

The epic romantic disaster drama debuted in Us cinemas on December 19th, 1997, and wouldn’t leave Us cinemas until October 1998, 41 weeks later. It earned $1.8 billion worldwide, and remained the biggest box-office hit ever until 2010 (when it was supplanted by Cameron’s own Avatar). Titanic wasn’t just a huge hit; it was an inescapable phenomenon. Showings were sold-out well into early 1998, even with the film in saturation release, and it stayed at the top of the box-office charts for 15 consecutive weeks (still a record). The film was a critical success, and it tied for

Jedi Confidential: Inside the Dark New 'Star Wars' Movie

Jedi Confidential: Inside the Dark New 'Star Wars' Movie
A long time ago, a grade-schooler got his hands on a spaceship. He followed the assembly instructions as best he could, snapping on the cannons, the landing gear, the tiny interstellar-chess table. Soon enough, Rian Johnson was holding his very own Millennium Falcon. "The first thing I did," he recalls, "was throw it across the room, to see how it would look flying." He grins. "And it broke."

Johnson grew up, went to film school, made some good stuff, including the entertainingly twisted 2012 sci-fi drama Looper. He's nearly 44 now, though

Critics Pick the Best Movies That Should Be Made Into TV Shows — IndieWire Survey

Critics Pick the Best Movies That Should Be Made Into TV Shows — IndieWire Survey
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: In light of recent “Galaxy Quest” and “Lord of the Rings” news, which movie/movie franchise should be rebooted as a TV series? (question courtesy of Allison Keene)

I have so many ideas for this! During that season we got “Minority Report” and “Limitless,” I got angry about how many of these reboots/remakes/sequels are male-skewering and male-dominated and started making a list of all the movies I’d rather see instead – obviously ones that are more focused on telling stories about women and non-binary folks. “Whip It” could be a fantastic Freeform teen drama series (I’m still angry that

Edward James Olmos says Shane Black’s The Predator “is gonna be funny”

While doing the press rounds for Pixar’s Coco, Edward James Olmos has backed up Thomas Jane’s comments from a couple of weeks ago by stating that Shane Black’s The Predator ‘is gonna be funny’.

The Blade Runner and Battlestar Gallactica veteran was talking to Cinema Blend when he spilled the following details:

“That’s an interesting story. I haven’t seen any of it, but it’s gonna be funny. The kids in the thing. Yeah, the humor. Huge. Huge. I mean I was in shock, because, you know this is a really intense franchise, and it still is. Don’t get me wrong. You’re gonna be inside of it. But the characters are… what he did — Shane is an incredibly gifted writer, and he’s a great director, and so he ended up getting an incredible ensemble, and when I reached it they had already

Star Wars’ chequered past in live-action TV

Rob Leane Nov 13, 2017

A live-action Star Wars TV series is on the way! Let’s look back at Underworld, the last attempt to get one made...

Last Friday was an exiting day for Star Wars fans, with UK followers of that galaxy far, far away waking up to some massive news. While we were sleeping, Disney chief Bob Iger announced a new trilogy of Star Wars films and a live-action Star Wars TV series.

Iger’s announcement included some details about the new movie trilogy (The Last Jedi’s Rian Johnson is helming it, with the story being totally separate to the Skywalker-centric ‘episode’ films), but the TV project was left utterly mysterious. All the fans were told is that the live-action TV series will be released

‘The Flash’ Ep Dishes on Iris' Bachelorette-Gone-Wrong in ‘Girls Night Out’ -- Plus, New Crossover Scoop!

‘The Flash’ Ep Dishes on Iris' Bachelorette-Gone-Wrong in ‘Girls Night Out’ --  Plus, New Crossover Scoop!
The ladies of Team Flash are hitting the town in Tuesday’s all-new episode of The Flash! But, like most nights in Central City, things don’t quite go as planned.

“We wanted to do something we’ve never done before,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told reporters of the ep last week. “We started with the concept of, wouldn’t it be really funny if Barry goes for a bachelor party with the guys and [Iris] goes for a bachelorette party with the girls, and the guys end up having the worst night ever, and the girls wind up saving the city. That was where the episode started from, and that’s where it ended up.”

8 ways The Twilight Zone influenced modern TV and film

Louisa Mellor Nov 25, 2017

The Twilight Zone casts a long shadow over today’s film and TV. We salute the legacy left by Rod Serling’s seminal series…

“Damn near immortal” is how Stephen King described The Twilight Zone in his 1981 study of creepy fiction Danse Macabre, and who could argue with that. Like any decent horror monster, Rod Serling’s 1960s anthology series keeps coming back from the grave. Only last week it was announced that CBS is planning to resurrect its award-winning show once again. The new series will be the latest of several revivals over the decades, including an upcoming stage production set to enjoy its world premiere at London’s Almeida Theatre this December.

First-look preview of Battlestar Galactica vs. Battlestar Galactica #1

Dynamite Entertainment is set to bring the crews of the two Battlestar Galactica shows together this January with the new series Battlestar Galactica vs. Battlestar Galactica, and we’ve got an early first-look preview of the debut issue for you here; check it out…

At last! The epic story you’ve been dying to see is here, a galaxy and timeline-spanning saga bringing the two very different (and yet so very much alike) crews of the Battlestar Galacticas series together. But don’t expect this historic meeting of heroes to be friendly: they have no idea why they have been brought together, or what the result of this unprecedented meeting is. And it starts here as the legendary Commander Cain and the crew of the Pegasus are revealed to be alive, and have encountered an individual they never thought they would meet: the last Cylon. All this has happened before,

Thomas Jane discusses the plot of The Predator

The story of Shane Black’s upcoming The Predator has been pretty short on details up to this point. All we really know about the film is that it takes place in a suburban area as a group of soldiers try to take down the new Predator. Now, however, star Thomas Jane (The Expanse) appeared on the Shadow Nation podcast and revealed a lot of details on his and the other soldier’s backstories.

“We play these veterans from like Afghanistan, Iraq war or whatever,” Jane said. “But we’re all fucking crazy so we go to the Va hospital to get our meds. We’re all like shellshocked, Ptsd… soldiers. We’re at the Va hospital and we’re in group therapy and of course, somebody flips out…this is backstory, I don’t think we really see this…somebody flips out and we all get arrested and get
