“She’s a bit of a scaredy cat. She’s not very good in dire or violent situations. She scares easily, which is not such a good thing when you’re in the world of Atlantis. She’s really great under pressure though. I think that’s when she’s at her best, especially when she’s in her element; anything to do with medicine or a complicated medical situation she’s just there. She’s just on. She’s very, very, very smart and very focused.” Read the rest of this entry »
Getting It Straight from Staite: Jewel Staite Talks About Being On Board for Stargate Atlantis’ Fourth SeasonOctober 19, 2007
Hey, Hardcore Queen here at E For All in LA, the newest Gaming event in LA. The producers of the event envision this show to be as large as E3 only focused on the consumers instead of industry folks. When I first walked into the hall, I felt like I was transported back into time. Like it was E3 all over again, even though I railed against the show every year, I find that I really miss it. There was a nice little welcome, as you walk into the doors there was a band performing music. Entering the hall you immediately realize it isn’t E3, there isn’t the E3 crowds there are no packed hallways, no circus atmosphere, outside the South Hall there was almost no indication that anything was happening within the convention center, just a couple of small tents from Novint Tech who were showcasing their amazing new Falcon PC Controller.

If you didn’t see Transformers in a theatre, you missed one of the biggest treats of this last summer’s crop of blockbusters. Simply put, Transformers is the best live action film to have been based on a line of toys, or an animated TV series.
George Clooney has built himself a pretty cool career by alternating fluffy summer fare with more serious, conscience provoking dramas. Michael Clayton is his latest excursion into the latter. It’s a tale about a lawsuit that hinges on the plaintiffs not finding out that the product in question was known to have potentially fatal effects on its users – sort of like the memos within the tobacco industry that acknowledged the addictive and cancer-causing aspects of their products.
James Gray’s We Own The Night is a tale of two brothers – one a cop one a nightclub manager who doesn’t know he’s working for the Russian mob. It’s an attempt to take a classic Cain & Abel/prodigal son tale and invest it with a subtext that reads exactly opposite to the surface story. It’s a laudable effort that really wants to be this year’s The Departed – but it doesn’t quite work.
It must have seemed like such a good idea, putting a contemporary spin on an old favourite. Over the years the legend of Robin Hood has provided a rich seam for TV and movies. Errol Flynn, Kevin Kostner and Douglas Fairbanks have all played the green-tight-wearing philanthropist and it was entirely unsurprising that the BBC, after the success of their updated Doctor Who, would want to have a go at re-imagining the Robin Hood stories.
Battlestar Galactica: Razor, is Amazing, – SO SAY WE ALL! Mostly Spoiler Free Review by Michelle AlexandriaOctober 11, 2007
When I went to the mailbox earlier this week there was a little surprise in my box namely a Sci-Fi screener for Battlestar Galactica: Razor. I generally do not review Sci-Fi Channel screeners because I get them so early in the process that the shows are usually incomplete, they are good for background information but not really to review. Razor was the first screener I received from them that was actually complete and wow, did I like this movie. I’m ready for the next season of BSG. Read the rest of this entry »
Paul Gross (Due South, Slings and Arrows) is nothing if not totally passionate about his current project, the epic movie Passchendaele, a First World War romance inspired by stories his maternal grandfather, Private Mike Dunne, told him when he was a boy. Those stories – harrowing tales of life in the trenches, of comradeship and loss – remained with him, becoming the basis for this ambitious project. Read the rest of this entry »
