Forgotten Friday Flick - 'Near Dark'

February 10th, 2012 11:22am EST
Near Dark photo
Oscar promoting is in high drive right now, so why not look at a flick from a previous Best Picture winner to get the season started...welcome to Forgotten Friday Flick! Kathryn Bigelow swept the 82nd Academy Awards (stick that in your Avatar and smoke it Jim Cameron!) with her stylistic war film "The Hurt Locker," but it was way back in 1987 she made a previous five-star film that some may not remember. (Shame on you!) It was a gritty tale of a band of traveling vampires that prey on the blood of innocent folks. Far from the charm of Tom Cruise in "Interview with a Vampire" and minus t...

Summer Lovin': Two New Summer Shows To Love

August 31st, 2011 3:00pm EDT
suits
There’s nothing I love more than being swept off my pop culture-lovin’ feet by a new television series. For this television-aholic, it feels like being given an invitation to an exhilarating alternate reality, and I have this lovin' feeling for two summer shows. I worship them so much that I’m not even obsessing about the impending start of the fall season (Kidding, less than three weeks, people!).

Here are two shows that I’m head-over-heels for. One is a sophisticated legal drama set in the core of the Big Apple, another is a guilty-pleasure reality show about a real basketball wife.

Adrian Pasdar
Heroes star Adrian Pasdar has escaped jail after pleading no contest to a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence (DUI) following his arrest in January.

Pasdar pleaded no contest to one misdemeanor charge of DUI earlier this week. He was sentenced to 36 months probation and was ordered...

Masi Oka of Heroes
Masi Oka is our hero. He's been spending the holiday season pimping the Red Cross and asking people to volunteer. He also spilled a little about "Heroes" to Starpulse and what to expect in the season's final few episodes.

What can you tell us about your involvement in the Red Cross?

I'm part of the National Celebrity Cabinet, and what it is is to spread the word out there to go volunteer. Visit redcross.org and get some information on how you can volunteer.

'Heroes' Recap: A Slow, Boring Episode

September 30th, 2009 8:00am EDT
Heroes
The two-hour premier was sadly misleading. It made audiences believe every episode would be entertaining and insightful. Perhaps "Heroes" cannot fulfill its weekly purpose caged within just one small hour per week. Maybe they need two hours every week in order for us to understand how certain plot lines make any sense whatsoever.

This week starts off with a whimper. Peter looks proudly at his latest clipping. He single handedly averted a MTA bus crisis. Claire tries to avoid Gretchen and the leader of the carnival, Samuel, decides to suck some ink into his hand and go looking for Peter.

Well the gang is back from summer vacation and ready to solve crimes. No wait that's Scooby Doo. This is Heroes, although the mystery element has returned this season and it's helping to keep an audience interested. Seems like everyone on Heroes has been trying to figure out how to be a hero in their own life in the two-hour premiere episode.

Peter is working non-stop as an EMT. He saves a pregnant woman after a car accident. She gives birth to twin girls and names neither of them Peter. His co-worker notices Peter's obsession. Peter's only response is that if he had arrived 30 seconds l...

'Heroes' Has An Identity Crisis

This week's episode of Heroes starts with a recap full of footage no one but the production staff has ever seen. Danko and Sylar look through the window of Danko's office. Danko says to Sylar, "See that agent over there, to work with us you'll need a new identity." Then he gives Sylar the agent's name and life in order for Sylar to work with Danko's team. So if you're among the many who fast-forward on their DVR after recording this show, you may have missed this part.

The beginning of the show opens with Claire asking, "So what now?" Nathan answers that he'll return to Washington "tak...

Then he asks Angela for answers about the aunt he never knew about.

This week starts off with a shock. In a series of interesting close-ups, jump cuts and repeat edits Danko puts on shaving cream, places a straight razor into a guard and begins shaving his face. His alarm goes off telling him his front door is open. He wipes off the shaving cream, you'd think he's just leave it on, gets his gun out, which he always wears in it's holster, and makes his way to the front door. He closes the door and back tracks into his living room where he finds the Puppeteer gift-wrapped with a red bow and hanging from his ceiling in a makeshift theater stage complete with c...

Paul Greengrass must have designed the sloppy first episode of the new "Heroes" Chapter because they borrowed the cinematography from "The Bourne Ultimatum" and they really should give it back. NBC is apparently hurting for money and it looks as if they cut the budget for this floundering show. In response the writers decided to cut as much dialog and character development as possible and insert clichéd action sequences in which the heroes are captured by HRG backed by Nathan Petrelli. To further stretch the dwindling funds they also shot everything through a pinhole camera and succeeded in...

So this pretentious episode of Heroes begins with a narration about the meaning of an eclipse being unknowable and divine yet somehow we all know that in the next episode it will all be magically revealed, oh yeah, because they've been advertising this whole thing since last week.

Arthur Petrelli stands in front of Hiro, his hands over Hiro's ears, squeezing Hiro's head, Hiro screams and screams and screams some more. Arthur says, "You had one job to do…never send a boy to do a man's job." What a load of bad writing. This obscure reference only makes sense when the camera drops back t...

Apparently we all took the same sleeping pill, and while we were knocked out we had the same nightmare: that "Heroes" was going nowhere very fast, introducing new characters who we didn't care about because we knew nothing about them and creating plot scenarios which felt forced and clichéd.

It had characters we knew and cared about, and it revealed back stories in an interesting and thought provoking way. It ...

Awesome But Dead: Five Great TV Shows That Were Cancelled Undeservedly

September 23rd, 2008 9:00am EDT
Moonlight
Everyone can think of one off the top of their head: A TV show that got the axe way too soon. Actually, there is at least one show per season that "died before its time" - because it was killed by heartless TV executives. Here, we honour five shows that suffered an especially gruesome and undeserved death.

Profit (1996), 4 episodes aired

The best show you have probably never heard of. Also, it is the most cancelled of all cancelled shows, taken off the air by FOX after only four episodes in 1996, even though eight had been completed (and were later released on DVD).

Our Favorite TV Ensembles

June 12th, 2008 9:00am EDT
Lost
An ensemble cast is a group of actors in which each character/actor is assigned an equal level of importance to the story. Sometimes even if there is an established "main character," a show can be considered an ensemble because individuals are treated with the same care and development as everyone else on the show.

This sort of cast style gives the audience a chance to connect with several different characters rather than just one; if a viewer does not like one of the characters or cannot relate to them, there will be several more to choose from. It creates very broad storylines and v...
