Lost – ‘Stranger in a Strange Land’ – 3.9

I need to call a personal moratorium on all future spoilers including those backend credit cookies that provide a teaser for next week’s installment. After all, any promise of ‘the island’s three biggest mysteries will be revealed’ is bound to be met with disappointment. Make no mistake – blame should not be levied at any…

Scooby’s Last Bite?

Posted by Sean The Scooby Speak domain is going to expire on March 3rd and I have no intention of renewing it, at least out of my own pocket. If, by some miracle, there is public outcry to preserve this neglected domain, speak your mind here (and prepare to pay up). As for the content…

My Favorite Things – ‘Top 5 Television Shows’

While most of My Favorite Things lists have focused on various genres in film, that’s not solely where my interests lie. Nope, not this cosmopolitan gent. I have a wide range of interests spanning the world over. Case in point – today’s list. A real stretch from the norm. Before I dive into my list,…

Two Faced

The Hollywood Reporter has a story this morning confirming that Aaron Eckhart is in final negotiations to play Harvey Dent/Two-Face in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight. Absolutely perfect casting!!! I think Eckhart imparts a nice duality to the role -as he oftens comes across as a noble tough guy one moment and a smooth criminal the next….

Lost – ‘Flashes Before Your Eyes’ – 3.8

  “When is a flashback not a flashback.” In yesterday’s online edition of Entertainment Weekly, Lost producer Carleton Cuse provided EW scribe Jeff Jensen with a teaser for that evening’s new episode, the Desmond-centric ‘Flashes Before Your Eyes’. Although the episode seemed to feature one giant flashback (versus the usual 3 or 4 nuggets we’re…

Office Space

Guest directors guide my favorite comedy. Tonight’s episode of The Office is directed by Joss Whedon. Next week, JJ Abrams takes the helm.

Leaning Tower

“The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed.” That’s the first line of the first entry in Stephen King’s ambitious seven-part fantasy series – The Dark Tower. A simple, crisp statement which when first glimpsed by my adolescent eyes, so many years ago, carried such weight and promise. There are seven…

My Favorite Things – ‘Top 5 Funny Movies’

Last summer when I started my recurring series, ‘My Favorite Things’, I documented a whole series of categories and stored them away for a rainy day. So far we’ve covered my favorite Scary Movies, Individual Scenes, Film Endings, Comic Book Flicks and of course, the five flicks that made this grown man cry. I thought it…

Solid Gold

This one truly has me pumped. Variety is reporting this morning that one of my favorite video game series – Metal Gear Solid – is in active development at Sony Pictures to become a major motion picture. The MGS series has always blended the line between game and cinema with intricate storylines that best a…

Lost – ‘Not in Portland’ – 3.7

If you listen to the major television critics (most of whom greeted Lost’s return for 16 straight episodes with stellar marks), what once was Lost is found again. I happen to reside in the ‘Other’ camp. I was hooked on this show from the first moments of the pilot episode and have been swept up…
