Buffy the Vampire Slayer Rewatch: Becoming (Part 1)

  • TVfanatic
The moment has arrived, Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans. We've reached the holy grail when it came to shocking two-part episodes.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 2 Episode 21 (and its sequel) changed the game for the series' narrative. This may sound dramatic, but the cliffhanger and subsequent twists left us gasping for air...and wanting more. These hours are incredible for so many reasons.

Similar to past two-part episodes, we'll begin with "Becoming (Part 1)."

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 2 Episode 21 had a lot of flashbacks. And I do mean A Lot.

These flashbacks served an important purpose of answering questions about Angelus's and Buffy's pasts before the series ever aired.

Seeing Angelus become a vampire was essential to his backstory. We only had a taste of his interactions with Darla on Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 1 Episode 7, and the tidbits he mentioned before, to get a full sense of his past.

‘Batgirl’: Why Joss Whedon Was the Wrong Choice, and Why His Exit Means Real Change is Here

‘Batgirl’: Why Joss Whedon Was the Wrong Choice, and Why His Exit Means Real Change is Here
Up until fairly recently, the news that Joss Whedon was making a “Batgirl” movie would have been met with almost universal glee from his large fandom. With nerd credentials forged in the fires of his cult favorite series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Angel,” and “Firefly,” then wielded with the same confidence of Thor’s mighty Mjölnir to make “The Avengers” a box office smash, Whedon had become enough of a cult figure in pop culture where getting to see his witty spin on another beloved character would be fun.

That said, it’s the year 2018, and after learning on Thursday that Whedon would no longer be making “Batgirl,” it’s hard not to be glad that he’s gone.

It’s a two-part issue, one that reflects both Whedon’s past and the present state of the industry. For one thing, there are elements of Whedon’s series, it’s sad to say,

Joss Whedon Exits as ‘Batgirl’ Movie Director

Joss Whedon Exits as ‘Batgirl’ Movie Director
Joss Whedon has left as writer and director of the “Batgirl” movie for Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment, citing story issues as the reason for his departure.

Batgirl is such an exciting project, and Warners/DC such collaborative and supportive partners, that it took me months to realize I really didn’t have a story,” Whedon said in a statement.

Whedon thanked DC president Geoff Johns and Warners Picture Group president Toby Emmerich, saying, “I’m grateful to Geoff and Toby and everyone who was so welcoming when I arrived, and so understanding when I… uh, is there a sexier word for ‘failed’?”

Variety first reported last March that Whedon had come on to “Batgirl” following a meeting between Whedon, studio exec Jon Berg, and Johns.

Sources close to the situation told Variety that the decision for Whedon to depart was a mutual one and reflects the studio’s desire to seek more female directors — particularly on projects

The Avengers Shatters All Expectations: Journey to Infinity War Part 6

Our journey to Infinity War continues by looking back at Marvel's The Avengers, which is perhaps the most important superhero movie in the history of the genre. And quite possibly the greatest, if you're like me and like to think of The Dark Knight as an action/thriller that happens to have a guy in a costume in it some of the time. In any case, so far, we've looked at all of Marvel's individual Phase 1 movies that got us to this point. Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger were leading us here. Everyone knew fairly quickly that they were taking us to an Avengers movie, but nothing like this had ever been done before. Nobody really knew if this could work. It not only works, it's still the gold standard for team-up movies and hasn't lost a step nearly

Movie Review – Opus of an Angel (2018)

Opus of an Angel, 2018.

Directed by Ali Zamani.

Starring: William McNamara, Kaylyn Kubeldis, and Cindy Pickett.

Synopsis:op

Tragedy strips a successful man (William McNamara) of his family. Exactly one year later he sets off on a final trip around Los Angeles and encounters Maria (Kaylynn Kubeldis). Lost, blind and in need of salvation he takes her under his wing as they journey across town.

This film delicately explores chance encounters, serendipitous coincidence and divine intervention whilst instilling a preternatural calm. Character driven but emotionally detached Opus of an Angel employs hand held framing devices, close up moments of subtle symbolism and acts of stark violence for dramatic effect. Shot for the most part on location and employing a documentary approach it is consistently hypnotic and ultimately absorbing.

William McNamara and Kaylynn Kubeldis make for an odd couple on screen, but the combination of his sallow demeanor and her naturalistic optimism are crucial.

Former Marvel Director Thinks Zack Snyder Should Helm Man Of Steel 2

Whatever the reaction to 2017’s Justice League, the DC movie universe is clearly not fading from the big screen any time soon. There are far too many titles in various stages of development, far too many popular characters available to play with, and far too many hopes pinned on the latest studio staffing re-shuffle for the franchise to end on that note. What is becoming clear, though, is that greater attention – by fans and, apparently, the studio – is being paid to a Man of Steel 2. Unsurprisingly – given the Justice League debacle – the biggest emphasis currently seems to be on identifying a potential director.

For a while, it was Matthew Vaughn’s name that seemed to top most lists. This was not a nonsensical idea, with his comic book movie credentials are fairly impressive, with Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class, Kingsman: The Secret Service and Kingsman: The Golden Circle all featuring prominently on his directing resume.

David Boreanaz, Primetime’s Most Valuable Player, Has Another Hit With ‘Seal Team’ — Ratings Watch
David Boreanaz is once again proving his primetime power. Fresh off a 12-season run on the Fox staple “Bones,” Boreanaz didn’t miss a beat: His new CBS drama, “Seal Team,” has already been given a full 22-episode first season order, and is shoo-in for a sophomore renewal.

Not many performers can brag about starring in back-to-back-to-back hits, which makes Boreanaz a TV heavy hitter on par with stars like Ted Danson and William Shatner — the rare actors who have enjoyed multiple hits on unrelated shows. Boreanaz, of course, top-lined the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” spinoff “Angel” for several years (and 110 episodes) before moving on to 246 episodes of “Bones.”

Seal Team” stars Boreanaz as Jason Hayes, the leader of the Tier One team, a group deployed on clandestine missions worldwide at a moment’s notice. The show has been consistently making the top 25 ratings among both adults 18-49 and total viewers.

The CW’s Smart Superhero Crossovers Reveal A Fatal Flaw in Netflix Binge Watching

The CW’s Smart Superhero Crossovers Reveal A Fatal Flaw in Netflix Binge Watching
Netflix was supposed to make watching TV easier than ever. But occasionally it turns the experience into a scavenger hunt, and a tedious one at that.

The most recent example comes from a fun yearly tradition between the four series that constitute The CW’s “Arrow”-verse: a mega-crossover event that blends the Greg Berlanti-produced quartet of DC Comics dramas for an epic, effects-laden adventure.

This year’s big crossover, dubbed “Crisis on Earth-x,” featured a wedding, alternate Earths, Nazis, the introduction of a new superhero, some unexpected team-ups, and plenty of kick-punching — all the stuff fans of these series enjoy.

But while fans watching this week were able to enjoy a seamless viewing experience, on par with catching a three-hour movie, future audiences won’t have that option. Instead, figuring out how to piece together “Crisis on Earth-x” will be a far more complicated endeavor.

Rollback Review: Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 5

And now we finally get to the best one of all. The true peak of Buffy. The Season where it truly was at its finest hour.

After a shaky Season Four, Buffy returned in style for its fifth season, constructing 22 episodes full of strong characters, a brilliant arc, heartbreaking moments and some of the best hours that the show ever produced. Whilst all the previous Seasons of Buffy had numerous good qualities, it’s fifth just seemed to have everything. From the intense, gripping story-arc of Season Two, to the consistently brilliant episodes of Season Three, to the superb stand-alone hours of Season Four, Season Five is an example of a show at full throttle. It’s brimming with confidence, it knows exactly where it’s taking the story – and explores new routes for our characters that we didn’t even think we’d see.

So, what makes Season Five so great?

‘Marvel’s Runaways’ Review: Hulu’s First Foray Into the World of Comics is Ambitious, Complex, and Fun

‘Marvel’s Runaways’ Review: Hulu’s First Foray Into the World of Comics is Ambitious, Complex, and Fun
The basic premise of the new Hulu series “Marvel’s Runaways” is a bit over-the-top (but easily sellable on posters): What if you found out that your parents were supervillains? However, the mysteries laid out in the first four episodes presented to critics indicate that the series aims to be far more complex than that basic synopsis might indicate, and that executive producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage have a long game in mind for the show going forward.

The six teenagers at the heart of the series — brainy Alex (Rhenzy Feliz), good-hearted Karolina (Virginia Gardner), lacrosse star Chase (Gregg Sulkin), “social justice warrior” Gert (Ariela Barer), gothic Nico (Lyrica Okano), and soft-spoken Molly (Allegra Acosta) — aren’t exactly friends when we meet them, despite all attending the same upper-class high school in Los Angeles.

MipCancun: 15 Takes on 2017’s Edition

Cancun, Mexico — The 4th MipCancun unspooled Nov. 15-17 in the Sunrise quarter of a beachside hotel. That name could stand metaphor for the Latin America’s independent TV production sector at large and for MipCancun itself, as attendance soared to over 700 delegates, boosted by a co-production strand which looks like representing much of the meeting’s future. 15 points on this year’s meet, which caught the industry on a dramatic upturn.

1.Viva La Revolucion, And Yes, It’S Quite A Revolucion

MipCancun’s defining energy, playing out in multiple iterations and sweeping MipCancun, was Hollywood – studios, big and boutique indies – and Latin America’s top TV players – broadcasters, producers – thrashing out the co-production, co-financing and distribution, here by the former, of ambitious TV dramas, rooted in Latin American realities but made for the world. Just two-or-three examples: “Narcos” producer Gaumont TV started “at the beginning of the year” to become co-producers and partners of series from Latin
