I’m not sure why it is, but Americans seem to have a fascination with the British Royal Family. Perhaps that’s way BBC Home entertainment is releasing a special box set, The Royal Collection. Composed of four documentaries – The Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II (a behind-the-scenes look at the Queen’s 1953 Coronation), King George and [...]
Zombies are everywhere these days. There are even movies about zombies who ‘reform’ – Warm Bodies even turned them into a subject for a romantic comedy. That’s not quite the direction that BBC America’s miniseries event In the Flesh (part of the network’s Supernatural Saturdays, June 6-8, 10/9C) takes. Here, zombies can rehabilitated and rejoin [...]
One of the longer journeys from novel to film is that of Ender’s Game, by Orson Scott Card. Now there’s a trailer for the November 1 release. Check it out after the jump.

Nathan James survives a global catastrophe and the Navy destroyer’s crew must come to terms with the reality of their new circumstances. The order is for ten episodes to launch in 2014. Details follow the [...]
Ray Harryhausen – the man who made stop motion special effects an artform – has died at the age of 92. I remember seeing several of his movies when I was young, and there are scenes that I still remember with great fondness today – like Jason battling hordes of skeleton warriors in Jason and [...]

The poster for Michael Bay’s Black sails (coming to Starz on January, 20/14) is a cool riff on the skull and crossbones flags flown by pirate ships. The first teaser trailer for the series (following the jump) is also pretty spiffy.
People either loved or hated season one of Aaron Sorkin’s The Newroom – for exactly the same things (Sorkin’s use of the past to sermonize; prickly relationships; the detail of the show; the accuracies/inaccuracies of the behind-the scenes/workplace stuff, etc.). When it returns to HBO for a second season on July 14th, it will undoubtedly [...]
Hedgewick’s World of Wonders was once the greatest theme park in the galaxy, but it’s now the dilapidated home to a shabby showman, a chess playing dwarf and a dysfunctional army platoon. When the Doctor, Clara, Artie and Angie arrive, the last thing they expect is the re-emergence of one of the Doctor’s oldest foes. [...]
It is always an odd experience seeing an old time Broadway show revived for today’s cynical modern times. The 1927 production of Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II’s Show Boat is widely credited as being one of the first Broadway “super musicals.” The show spawned numerous, well known classics like “Ol’ Man River,” [...]
Tonight American Dad (Fox, Sundays, 9:30/8:30C) hits a real milestone – its 150th episode.

Today the first four episodes of season two of Lauren go live on the WIGS Channel at YouTube. The criticially acclaimed web series follows Lauren, a young woman in the army who has been raped and whom justice has not served well – and Jo Stone, the officer who is trying to help her. That’s [...]
Many argue that without the staggering critical and box office success of the first Iron Man movie, there would be no Marvel Universe, as we know it. However, when last I checked Spider-Man and the X-Men movies gave Marvel the confidence and financial resources to go off and build this franchise. Now Iron Man returns [...]
Marvel Studios continues to create ambitious, successful superhero movies with Iron Man 3 – the best of Tony Stark’s solo adventures to date. This time out, Stark is suffering post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of having his world upended in The Avengers – leaving him vulnerable both physically and emotionally. While Iron Man 3 [...]

FX’s The Americans is a risk-raking drama; after all, it’s about a pair of deep cover Russian KGB agents living in the U.S. as husband and wife – and they’ve played their roles so thoroughly that they have two children! The Americans’ first season ended last night after taking tits unusual premise and turning it [...]
