RECAP/REVIEW: ‘Arrow’ – S02E19 – “The Man Under The Hood”

arrow-s02-e19

Two weeks ago, Arrow dropped some serious bombshells. Not only did Slade (Manu Bennet) continue to wage war on Oliver (Stephen Amell), but he revealed to Thea (Willa Holland) her true parentage and told Laurel (Katie Cassidy) The Arrow’s secret identity. Last night’s episode mostly dealt with the repercussions of those bombshells, but the progression of events plodded along in such a way it was difficult to ever really appreciate any developments. There was simply too much going on in “The Man Under The Hood” to give any of its interesting threads the time and energy required. (more…)

Robin Williams to Return for ‘Mrs. Doubtfire 2′, Hopefully With New Children to Care For

I’m not really sure how this is going to work (yet I really can’t wait to see them try), but there’s now a Mrs. Doubtfire 2 in the works, despite the fact that it has been twenty years since Chris Columbus’ initial film hit theaters. Robin Williams (who co-produced the first) is returning to star in the film, more than likely hoping to replicate the original’s $440 million worldwide box office take. Since the children are now all grown, I can only hope that this somehow becomes Williams and Columbus’ White Madea series, if only for the potential of a Tyler Perry crossover.

A race war led by two weird dudes in old lady drag? The possibilities seem endless.

‘Amazing Spider-Man’ News – ‘X-Men: DOFP’ After Credits Scene and More Info on Movie #3

Today we have some Amazing Spider-Man 2 news that actually has NOTHING to do  with marketing spam (well, not directly)! I know, I can’t believe it either. But with the  movie coming up in just a few weeks, I guess they feel comfortable enough with what  they’ve put out there thus far? Anyways, the new information is regarding a couple of  interesting things. The first is that, oddly enough, Amazing Spider-Man 2 will feature no TASM after-credits scene, but it will feature a clip from the upcoming X-Men: Days  of Future Past. The other, more sane-sounding bit of news is that some folks are finally talking about what we might see in Amazing Spider-Man 3. Scroll down for all the juicy  info. (more…)

It was with a lot of disappointment (and admittedly some jubilation on the other hand) that Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith regenerated into Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi at the end of the Doctor Who Christmas special this past December. And although Capaldi’s adventures as the Time Lord don’t kick off on television till later this year, those already missing space and time fairing with Eleven will be pleased to know that you’ll be able to carry on with the bow-tie clad hero… In comic book form!

Oh fuck off.

I’m sorry. It’s early (for me at least), I’m grumpy and Roman Polanski still stands as one of my all-time favorite filmmakers. He was an artist who could wring a moment for all of the dread and paranoia it was worth; a consummate cinematic purveyor of disquiet and angst. Now, in their infinite wisdom, some NBC Executives have decided that they should remake his seminal 1968 masterpiece into a two-part miniseries event! Starring Zoe Salanda (Avatar) and some bland white actor who isn’t the great John Cassavetes (Google tells me he’s Patrick J. Adams from Suits?)! Today we get a quick look at the redux, which promises a very polished and sanitized version of the icky weirdness Polanski perfected over thirty-five years ago.

Fargo

The story may be engrossing and the world may be singular, but it’s the varied and deep characters that make the premiere episode of Fargo — FX’s new 10 episode event series loosely tied to the Coen brothers theatrical masterpiece of the same name — truly astonishing.  (more…)

RECAP/REVIEW: ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ – Episode 18 – “Providence”

“Not agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., just agents of… nothing”

With last week’s episode showing that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. can hold the weight of being the MCU tie-in that we all wanted it to be, this episode asked the question of “Can they keep it up?”  While the answer to that may have been obvious to most viewers, we’ve definitely got an idea of what we can expect from here on out.
