Review: "Westworld", HBO Series Premiering October 2

3 hours ago | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Mark Cerulli

Cinema Retro readers no doubt remember Michael Crichton’s classic sci-fi thriller Westworld. Who can forget the chilling spectacle of Yul Brynner – sans face – stalking a hapless Richard Benjamin? When I heard HBO was “rebooting” Westworld, I was skeptical. The word “Why?” kept coming to mind. The original was so good, why go there?

I’m happy to say I was dead wrong. By expanding Michael Crichton’s original vision, the producers were able to open up new storylines and vastly enhance the earlier concept. While the 1973 film was epic, it was limited by the visual effects available at the time. Now every modern tool in the VFX toolbox can be used and the results are intoxicating, drawing the viewer into Westworld’s latex embrace.

The overall setup is still the same – a high-end resort modeled after the Old West where guests can indulge in every fantasy »

Joe Manganiello Begins His Deathstroke Research For Ben Affleck's Solo Batman Movie

22 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Joe Manganiello (True Blood, Magic Mike) has taken to Twitter to further tease his role as Slade Wilson/Deathstroke in Ben Affleck's planned Batman movie, by sharing an image of some of the research he's doing in preparation. It looks like he's just gathered a bunch of Deathstroke-related items together, but among the various Funko POPs and action figures, the first volume of Batman: Earth One by Geoff Johns can be seen. This series re-imagines the origins of the Dark Knight and many of his allies and enemies, but Slade Wilson doesn't actually appear. Does this mean Manganiello is reading up on it because it'll inform the plot of the film in some way? It seems unlikely he'd give something like that away in this manner, but still an intriguing choice, we're sure you'll agree. #research pic.twitter.com/M5OnLIoMVq — Joe Manganiello (@JoeManganiello) September 27, 2016 »

American Horror Story Season 6 Episode 1 Review

15 September 2016 6:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kirsty Capes reviews the first episode of American Horror Story season 6…

It’s finally back. After months of teasing and misdirection, the highly anticipated sixth season of American Horror Story has returned to our screens, with its first episode airing last night. Unlike previous seasons of the anthology series, creators Bryan Falchuk and Ryan Murphy chose not to reveal the theme of the year’s offering ahead of time, and after watching episode one, it’s still not entirely clear what’s actually going on.

The storytelling is confusing too. Episode one is presented to us as a palimpsest of plot: under the guise of a faux TV show – you know those ‘real life’ horror documentaries, where victims of horrendous events recount their stories alongside dramatic re-enactments – called My Roanoke Nightmare. In the fictional show, a couple named Shelby and Matt recount their very own American Horror Story: Matt is »

9 September 2016 7:59 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

It’s looking ever more likely that every film will be adapted for TV—and vice versa—with the occasional live production of such properties thrown in for good measure. 2016’s had a virtual bumper crop of adaptations of the latter, including plans for a True Blood musical, and a forthcoming Cheers play. And now, for the Abba fans out there who weren’t satiated by Mamma Mia’s long theater run or its film adaptation, Deadline reports that there’s a Muriel’s Wedding musical in the works.

Global Creatures, which already has a Moulin Rouge! Broadway musical in the works, will soon invite Sydney residents to dance and jive at the Muriel’s Wedding musical next year. (And how could we ever refuse? We feel like we win when we lose.) The original Australian film starred Toni Collette as Muriel (or Mariel) and Rachel Griffiths as Rhonda ...
