Vancouver International Film Festival 2015 - 'First Weekend Revi
Looks like my dear old Dad has been hitting the movie grindstone as witnessed by a gaggle of his reviews via the Vancouver International Film Festival 2015 (taking place Sept. 24 through Oct. 9 - go to for more details!) he has nicely bestowed upon us. Michael Coleman – father, friend and film goer. Give us the movie review skinny pop!


"Brooklyn" - As an opening film "Brooklyn" sets the tone for the festival and it worries me. A film with half a story and no antagonist, the result is a totally predictable linear film that moves at a snail’s paced – a drama withou...

Bai Ling David Arquette
Bail Ling is a fashion anomaly -- and can take risque to another level at times. However, David Arquette appears to be a big fan who appreciates her ageless assets.

According to a report, Bai Ling caused a seismic this week. In her latest fashion statement -- or the lack thereof -- Ling showed off her love for Tinsel Town at the 19th Annual Hollywood Film Festival.

The HFF was held at the Arclight Theater, and many in the entertainment industry were on hand to celebrate the art of storytelling. As usual, many put their best feet forward in fashion and hope to attract the obligatory quest...

Does CBS's 'Supergirl' Have What It Takes To Succeed?

7/21/2015 12:07pm EDT
CBS's Supergirl is the most talked-about new series of the fall, and Starpulse had the opportunity to learn more about it during San Diego Comic-Con. We spoke to executive producer Greg Berlanti, as well as supporting actors Mehcad Brooks and Jeremy Jordan, to find out what's so super about the latest DC Universe show to hit the airwaves.

Given their successes with Arrow and The Flash, are the producers bringing anything from those series to Supergirl? "We try and make every one different from the other ones," explained Greg. "Obviously, you learn a lot of things. You learn structurally, y...

How Does 'The Man In The High Castle's' Frank Spotnitz Succeed?
Frank Spotnitz's resume reads like a TV lover's dream: shows like The X-Files, Strike Back, Hunted and Transporter: The Series. His latest, Amazon's original series The Man in the High Castle, is one of the best literary adaptations ever to hit the small screen. We sat down with Frank at last week's San Diego Comic-Con to discuss how he's putting together High Castle's first season, and how he is one of the best writer-producers in the business.

"The response was much more than I expected. The response was so positive and it seemed to strike a chord with people," he said of the High Castle...

'Supernatural' Stars Preview Season 11 At San Diego Comic-Con

That's what we learned when we sat down with show stars Jared Padalecki (pictured), Jensen Ackles and Misha Collins at last week's San Diego Comic-Con. The trio also told us why they think Supernatural has lasted this long, and discussed last season's controversial character death - so if you're not caught up, SPOILER ALERT!

"What I'm excited about this year is that the boys are back on the same page," said Jared. "We've had these things that bring the boys apart ...

The Mystery Of 'Blindspot' Arrives At San Diego Comic-Con
NBC is banking heavily on Blindspot, and with good reason. The new drama series comes from a top-notch creative team and has a first-rate cast. Starpulse spoke to show creator Martin Gero, executive producer Greg Berlanti (yes, that Greg Berlanti who runs half of television), and star Jaimie Alexander to discuss who is Jane Doe - and how much about her we'll get to learn in the first season. This is not your typical TV mystery.

Firstly, it's not some overcomplicated idea; it simply sprung from a random thought. "I was literally lying in bed one morning," explained Gero. "I just had this im...
