Rick and Morty season 3 episode 4 review: Vindicators 3 - The Return Of Worldender

Joe Matar Aug 14, 2017

Rick and Morty's very funny, tightly plotted latest episode feels like a classic from season one. Spoilers ahead...

This review contains spoilers.

3.4 Vindicators 3 - The Return Of Worldender

Rick And Morty Season 3, wisely and perhaps unavoidably, has been leaning hard into the conceit that Rick can—but doesn’t have to—do anything. Considering this was quickly established in the show’s first season, it’s impressive they’ve continued to wring adventures out of a series with an unstoppable nihilist as a protagonist. A show with less confident writing would be at a loss for conflict, dead in the water, and, admittedly, even Rick And Morty flailed a little in season two. »

Kit Harington’s Top Non Game of Thrones Roles

Most people will recognize Kit Harington as Jon Snow on Game of Thrones. However, it should be noted that while the character was his break-through role, he has had a number of other roles over the course of his career that deserve a mention. Here are some of Kit Harington’s top non Game of Thrones roles: War Horse Like a lot of actors, Harington got started as a stage actor.

Sci-Fi Emmy Nominees ‘Westworld’ and ‘Stranger Things’ Dominate the Crafts

13 July 2017 3:25 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Apparently the TV Academy will only go so far in honoring sci-fi when it comes to the below-the-line craft nominations. While HBO’s “Westworld” and Netflix’s “Stranger Things” deservedly snagged 12 and 11 noms, respectively, FX’s “Legion” was totally shut out. That’s right: Noah Hawley’s mind-blowing Marvel superhero deconstruction didn’t get recognition for either Michael Wylie’s eye-popping production design or Dana Gonzales’s experimental cinematography. Perhaps it was too subversive for its own good.

Westworld” Rules

With HBO’s “Game of Thrones” out of the running this season, the void was filled by the brilliant re-imagining of Michael Crichton’s adult theme park. Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy wisely took a more graphic and philosophical approach to A.I. The brutal sex and violence definitely tapped a cultural nerve.

It’s about beauty and ugliness in this collision of sci-fi and the western. Paul Cameron’s »

Nathan Lane and Andrew Garfield star in National Theatre Live’s Angels in America at select Cineplex theatresNathan Lane and Andrew Garfield star in National Theatre Live’s Angels in America at select Cineplex theatresAdriana Floridia6/23/2017 11:45:00 Am

Tony Kushner’s Pulitzer Prize winning play Angels in America has had a long life. From its debut in 1991 in San Francisco, to the Emmy award winning HBO mini-series adaptation, and even as an opera that was first performed in Paris, France, Angels in America is a timeless story that keeps resonating with audiences. In fact, it’s more relevant than ever.

Following a group of New Yorkers in the mid-1980s, in the midst of the AIDs crisis and a conservative Reagan administration, Angels in America touches on themes of life, death, love, sex, heaven, and hell. The National Theatre Live production stars Andrew Garfield as Prior Walter, and he’s joined by Nathan Lane, James McArdle, Denise Gough, and Russell Tovey. It is directed by Tony award winner Marianne Elliott, who also helmed stage productions of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and War Horse.

Angels in America is a play in two parts, and on July 20th, 2017, you can watch a live broadcast of Part One: Millennium Approaches at select Cineplex theatres. Part Two: Perestroika will be broadcast on July 27th, 2017. Encore dates will follow in August.

Blind Date 2017: is dating TV still innocent enough?

15 June 2017 11:20 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Jamie Andrew Jun 16, 2017

Can lovely, innocent Blind Date really exist in the same tawdry world as Take Me Out?

Blind Date is coming back this weekend. So much has changed since the 1980s, both on TV and in society itself, that what returns to our screens may not be a straight-forward, fully-intact teleport of the format, but rather a mutant mish-mash: a half-fly Jeff Goldblum of a show just begging to be put out of its misery. The truth of this inevitable transformation can be seen in the steps already taken up the light-entertainment evolutionary ladder, most notably in the DNA of ITV's long-running post-Blind Date offering, Take Me Out

Megan Leavey – Review

9 June 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Kate Mara stars as Megan Leavey in Gabriella Copperthwaite’s Megan Leavey, a Bleecker Street release.

Megan Leavey is a true story-based drama about young woman whose close bond with a dog changes both of their lives. Although the young woman is a Marine serving in Iraq and the dog is her bomb-sniffing teammate, this really is a touching dog story rather than a war story.

Director Gabriela Cowperthwaite’s moving but flawed film is based on the true story of Iraq war veteran Megan Leavey and the German Shepherd explosives-detection dog Rex with which she worked. If you are a soft touch for true-story dog tales, this one’s got your number. Director Gabriela Cowperthwaite has previous experience telling a compelling animal story, as the director of Black Fish, the award-winning documentary about captive orcas.

Making a nice transition to narrative feature films, Cowperthwaite tells a different kind of “girl and her dog” story, »

Is the Alien franchise exhausted?

19 May 2017 11:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on whether the Alien franchise is exhausted…

Is the reason almost every Alien movie since the original has been, at best, a mixed bag because the premise has been exhausted?

I thought about this the other day as I watched a slew of Alien: Covenant reviews pour in. Like Prometheus, it seems to be getting the kind of safe critical treatment a veteran filmmaker like Sir Ridley Scott has supposedly earned. Currently Alien: Covenant is at 76% on Rotten Tomatoes. (Prometheus ended up at 72%). Those 75% ranges on Rotten Tomatoes are quite telling, especially when it comes to established, well-renowned talent. Last year Steven Spielberg’s gigantic boring Thud The Bfg ended up at 75%. Most of Spielberg’s sub-par output end up in the mid 70’s: War Horse 75%, War of the Worlds = 75%, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull = 77%, The Adventures of Tintin = 75%. The mid-seventies for a veteran »

Someone to Watch Over Me: Spielberg and Surveillance

15 March 2017 2:02 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Exploring the director’s fascination with spying.

The cinema of Steven Spielberg is one that’s built around fascination and a need to understand. As a director he is an explorer, but not one interested in unearthing grand artifacts, rather one in search of intimate treasures, an explorer of explorers, so to speak, someone to whom the process of discovery is much more interesting than the discoveries themselves.

As such, his films are rife with surveillance, characters spying on or otherwise surreptitiously watching other characters, tracking their behavior, their actions, their being, for the purposes of gathering information, good and bad. Think of the Nazis on the trail of Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Lost Ark peering over newspapers, or the future crime detectives in Minority Report scanning time for illegalities, or the government scientists after E.T. creeping about suburbia.

Spielberg is constantly exploring surveillance and the various mindsets behind it, and »
