Hulu Announces Adaptation Of The Handmaid’s Tale With Elisabeth Moss Starring

29 April 2016 1:55 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Hulu is getting into the dystopian game, with the announcement today that the streaming service has given a straight-to-series order for an adaptation of the classic Margaret Atwood novel The Handmaid’s Tale. There’s a star attached as well – Mad Men alum Elisabeth Moss is set to lead the 10-episode first season.

Behind the scenes, Bruce Miller (The 100) has written the script, with Atwood herself on board as a producer for the series. The novel was previously adapted into a movie back in 1990, and one of the producers on that film will also help shape the new series.

With dark themes and feministic messages, Atwood’s book was one of the progenitors of the influx of young adult dystopian novels in recent years. Released in 1985, the story describes one of the last remaining fertile women of the totalitarian regime of Gilead (formerly the United States), who is kept »

Review: High-rise Effectively Proves That Humanity’s Greatest Threat Will Always Be Itself

29 April 2016 12:46 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Based on J.G. Ballard’s 1975 novel of the same name, High-Rise is the latest from filmmaker Ben Wheatley and stars Tom Hiddleston, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans, Jeremy Irons, and Elizabeth Moss. Written by Amy Jump (who collaborated with Wheatley on Kill List, Sightseers, and A Field in England), High-Rise is a fascinatingly surreal cautionary tale of how class systems effectively break down and why society will always be its own worst enemy.

Set in 1975, High-Rise follows Dr. Robert Laing (Hiddleston) as he moves into a futuristic and luxurious apartment building in which residents are ranked by their stature in life and relegated to live on the floors the building’s architect and overseer, Anthony Royal (Irons), and his aristocratic associates see fit. The poorest folks live towards the bottom, the middle class reside above them, and so forth all the way up to Royal’s insanely intricate penthouse, complete with »

Shine On, Beautiful Murder

22 April 2016 9:15 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Team Experience is at the Tribeca Film Festival. Here's Jason on "A Kind of Murder" and "Always Shine"

I know it's blasphemy in these parts to speak ill of Mad Men (cue 90% of you automatically clicking away in disgust) but I could never really get into it because it felt too slavishly obsessed with 60s posturing - I love Mid-Century Design as much as the next Eero Saarinen disciple but I couldn't ever see the forest for the tulip chairs. That said, the new Patricia Highsmith adaptation A Kind of Murder (from the 1954 book The Blunderer, kind of a suburban copycat criss-cross of Strangers on a Train) makes Mad Men seem positively restrained in its period affectations - how you manage to turn a walking talking charm like Patrick Wilson into a walking talking turtleneck I'll never figure.

In Praise of Deon Cole’s Charlie, the Lovable Wild Card of ‘Black-ish’

20 April 2016 4:48 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It wasn’t necessarily a big piece of TV news, but when I heard Deon Cole’s Charlie Telphy would be in the final four episodes of the current season of “Black-ish,” it was time for a small celebration. Starting April 27 — Cole’s first episode back — I demand homemade lavender-honey ice cream for everyone!

Black-ish” is blessed with a wonderful cast, of course, one that has only gotten stronger and more impressive during the show’s two seasons. It’s a sign that things are headed in the right direction when each character of a TV comedy is so sharply defined that laughter or an amused state of mind can come from merely anticipating what a character might do in a given situation.

To wit: The show’s never explained why Charlie and Diane Johnson (Marsai Martin) have such a profoundly frosty relationship (and I’m inclined to think “Black-ish »

Reviewing every 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' season 2 episode

18 April 2016 6:35 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Netflix released the whole second season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on Friday, and I'm going to offer some overall thoughts on the season, followed by specific takes on each episode, coming up just as soon as I ask whether Cate Blanchett is really a great actress, or just tall... Netflix made the first six episodes available to critics, and while I enjoyed most of those early installments, the back half of the season was by far the stronger part, and the phase of things where the shift from making episodes for NBC to making them for Netflix was much more apparent. Season 1 also turned more serialized towards the end, with the trial of the Reverend Richard Wayne Gary Wayne, and it had its emotional moments as Kimmy faced down her captor. But the later episodes of season 2 felt darker and more complicated in their attempt to address Kimmy's emotional damage. »
