Jessica Jones Season 2 Episode 4 Review – ‘Aka God Help the Hobo’

Matt Rodgers reviews the fourth episode of Jessica Jones season 2…

Hour four of Jessica Jones, and here’s where we stand in terms of our viewing case notes. Jessica and Trish are on the trail of the building-scaling monster, Jerri is trying to fend off a hostile takeover, as well as the news she has Asl, Malcolm is juggling Tinder trysts, and Alias Investigations are on the verge of eviction.

At this stage a recap feels necessary, mainly because ‘Aka God Help the Hobo’ is one of those episodes that blight this Marvel Netflix universe, in that not a lot really happens until the final few minutes.

Beginning with a The Great Escape style scene of bouncing ball against wall therapy, which allows Jessica to condense her traumatic origin story into an angry rant, the episode then settles into some mystery machine detective work. We’re not talking CSI levels of detective work here,

Who Is Griffin Sinclair From Jessica Jones?

The second season of Jessica Jones has dropped on Netflix, and there's a handsome (but also suspicious) new face rolling with Jones' squad this season: Griffin Sinclair, played by Hal Ozsan (Dawson's Creek, Graceland). Read on for why we think he may be up to no good, but be warned of spoilers from Jessica Jones season two. Sinclair pops up on Jessica Jones as a TV news anchor who begins dating Trish Walker, Jessica's Bff. He's not actually a character from the Marvel comics universe; he was developed brand new for the Netflix show, but he's a great match for Trish because they both have some experience with fame, as she is a former child star and now semifamous radio host. He also seems like pretty much the perfect guy - and even when his perfect-guy-ness sets off Jessica's alarm bells, he comes back completely clean when she runs a background check on him.

Taken 2 Director Set to Helm a Sci-Fi Version of Spartacus Called The Champion

Director Olivier Megaton is set to direct a sci-fi action film called The Champion. The movie is described by THR as being in the "vein of a futuristic Spartacus, Champion tells of a man falsely imprisoned for an act of terrorism who must battle through the prison’s gladiator program to regain his freedom."

Megaton has a solid resume of action films that include Taken 2, Taken 3, Transporter 2, and Colombiana. He will be directing the film from a script being written by actor-turned-scribe Hal Ozsan (Dawson’s Creek).

The Champion sounds like it could make for a really cool action film. Who doesn't like gladiator movies?!

The Champion: new Spartacus-like sci-fi movie shooting next year

Joseph Baxter Aug 31, 2016

The director of Taken 2 and Taken 3 - Olivier Megaton - is set to tackle The Champion...

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a science-fiction stylised take on the Gladiator genre is in the works with the Taken sequels director Olivier Megaton. Brandishing the title, The Champion, the prospective film is being described as 'a futuristic Spartacus', depicting the ordeal of a man imprisoned for an act of terrorism he apparently didn’t commit and forced to participate in a type of gladiator arena that yields the possibility of winning his freedom.

It’s a familiar sounding story, recalling the various versions of the Roman Empire-era-set Spartacus story like the 1960 Kirk Douglas-starring classic and the iterations of the 2010-2013 Starz Spartacus television series like Blood And Sand, starring the late Andy Whitfield. A futuristic take on the grueling grandiosity of the gladiator arena should make

Here there, creepies! Recently I had the pleasure of talkin’ to the die-rector of the new suspense flick Private Number, LazRael Lison, here in the good ol’ Crypt o’ Xiii, and since I’m such a kind hearted ol’ ghoul (and the fact that I’m contractually obligated to deliver content) I thought I’d share it with you cats forthwith!

'Layover', the Discovery of a Hidden Gem

This time of year most everyone in the film world is talking about Oscar contenders, movies like Boyhood, Birdman, and Selma, which get more press each week as awards season marches on. However, I'm here today to provide a recommendation for a film you likely haven't heard of, which you can check out right now on VOD. The film is called Layover, and it is an impressive high-concept drama that took me completely by surprise. The first outing from writer-director Joshua Caldwell, Layover is very much in the vein of Richard Linklater's Before trilogy. Driven not by traditional plot mechanics but by the characters we see on screen and the way they interact with the world around them, Caldwell's primarily French-language film centers on a Parisian woman named Simone (Nathalie Fay) as she navigates the city of Los Angeles for a night after her connecting flight to Singapore is cancelled.

Exclusive: Take A Motorcycle Ride With A Clip From Indie Romance 'Layover'

As Richard Linklater has perhaps most famously shown, a lot can happen in one night. The hours between sunset and sunrise have inspired numerous filmmakers to tell stories about the drama, comedy, and romance that can unfold, and another tale of a nighttime connection has arrived with writer/director Joshua Caldwell's "Layover." Starring Nathalie Fay, Karl E. Landler, Bella Dayne, and Hal Ozsan, the story follows Simone, a young Parisian on the way to her wedding in Singapore, whose connecting flight in cancelled, forcing her to spend the night in Los Angeles. She heads into the city to meet a friend, but is soon left on her own downtown without a ride, where she meets a motorcyclist who takes her on an adventure that makes her question the future she has waiting for her.

Geek Girl Navigating the World – “Dads”, “Sleepy Hollow”, and “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” the State of the Fall Season (So Far)

  • Boomtron
This year, I’m not necessarily as excited for the start of the TV season as I usually am. Oh, sure there are some high points, of course, there always are. Mostly, though, I’m looking forward to returning shows more than I am to new ones, with only a few exceptions.

The major networks seem to want to get new comedies off the ground and I really wanted to like “Dads”. After all, the cast has the return of Martin Mull (who I’ve always thought was a dependable actor for those guys who seem to be the only ones with any common sense in a room full of hyper whackos), Giovanni Ribisi, and Seth Green. Usually, I find Seth Green hilarious, even if the rest of the material around him isn’t quite so funny. I watched the first episode. It should have appealed to me on a couple of levels.

'Dawson's Creek' reunion on 'Dancing With the Stars': Who did James Van Der Beek sit next to?

There are probably only six people in the world who care about this. Luckily, three of them work at Zap2it.

James Van Der Beek stopped by the taping of tonight's "Dancing With the Stars" to promote his new show, "Don't Trust The B---- In Apartment 23," because cross-promotion is what ABC does best. Van Der Beek's wife wasn't able to join him because she's got a newborn at home, so he brought another date -- and our hearts sang when we spotted him.

"Bonus points for the DC fan who can tell me who I'm sitting next to at DWTS..." the Beek tweeted.

Duh. His plus-one was Hal Ozsan, who appeared in 14 episodes of "Dawson's Creek" over the course of the series' last two seasons. Ozsan played Todd Carr, a temperamental director who ended up taking Dawson under his wing and showing him the ropes of the film industry.
