Video: James Cameron Vouches For Terminator Genisys!

Terminator Genisys Poster

Here’s an interesting concept: James Cameron has seen Terminator Genesys – and he really liked it! He liked it enough to make a video talking about it.

In the video he addresses the way the film, while ‘being respectful of the first two films,’ goes its own direction. He mentions some of the big time spoilers that have already been given in the trailers and loved them. Check out his video after the jump.

Terminstor Genisys opens July 1st.

Molten Trailer: Terminator: Genisys!

Terminator Genisys Teaser Poster

It’s here! The first trailer for Terminator: Genisys looks like the movie is playing fast and loose with the rules (how can Sarah Connor know about timelines that no longer exist?), but it has the propulsive feel of James Cameron’s Terminator films – especially in the humor.

Emilia Clarke makes a very interesting Sarah Connor and, let’s face it, playing a terminator is what Arnold Schwarzenegger was meant to do. Even Jai Courtney comes out of it looking pretty good.

Check out the unexpectedly cool trailer following the jump.

CIFF Review: Whiplash – Yes, It’s That Good!

Whiplash-09-26-14

Although one of the joys of covering a film festival is the cool movies that you might never otherwise see, there are always a few that you have to see even when you know they will being getting some kind of mainstream release. Whiplash – which won both the Jury and Audience prizes at this year’s Sundance Festival, is one of those. And it is just as good as those awards would suggest it is.

TELEVISION: The Closer – Married… With a Sick Cat and a Multiple Murder!

Scene 2

Los Angeles Deputy Brenda Johnson [Kyra Sedgwick] is facing a season of change as The Closer [TNT, Mondays, 9/8C] embarks on its fifth season. Now that she and Fritz [Jon Tenney] are married – and back at work – things haven’t quite smoothed themselves out. Not only is Brenda still adjusting to being married, her cat is sick [and we know how much she loves Kitty] and someone has just killed four of five members of a Hispanic family, execution style – a crime that is likely to cause serious repercussions in the community.

TELEVISION: The Closer: Suicide Is Painless – But Was This Suicide?

The winter premiere of The Closer [Mondays, TNT, 9/8C] is following a pretty hard act – it’s mid-season cliffhanger, and so we both learn the fate of Detective Sanchez [Raymond Cruz] and witness Deputy Chief Brenda Lee Johnson’s [Kyra Sedgwick] reaction to Fritz’s marriage ultimatum. Even better, there’s an apparent case of suicide that coroner Dr. Morales [Jonathan Del Arco] won’t sign off on – and he’s extorting Deputy Chief Johnson into taking the case [or he’ll take it to another division, making her team look like idiots!].

Tenney, Sternhagen, Sedgwick

The deceased is a recovering drug addict and con man who seems to have gone straight – though that doesn’t jive with the recollection of his ex-wife which is, in turns at odds with the experience [or at least testimony] of his pastor [church in a slating rink!] and cancer-suffering girlfriend. Add in the after effects of the cliff-hanger’s two-pronged dilemma – and the presence of Brenda’s parents [Barry Corbin and Frances Sternhagen], who are visiting for a few days before setting out on a Hawaiian cruise – and you’ve got all the ingredients for a truly odd mix of confusion, misdirection and pathos. The episode, Good Faith, is also notable for actually having scenes that do not require the presence of DC Strong.

Upcoming episodes feature a body found in the trunk of a car, and a suspected rapist/murderer whose lawyer has a track record of successfully defending sex offenders.

As usual, The Closer is written well enough to give us a few moments pause over each ep’s mystery, but it remains most notable for giving us a strong lead character that continues to grow as a person – and as a high-ranking member of the Los Angeles Police Department. Though this is Sedgwick’s show, there are moments for several members of her team as well as J.K. Simmons’ Assistant Chief Pope [who gets some really good stuff in the premiere].

All in all, The Closer hasn’t yet lost a step. It remains one of the best [and most watched] programs on cable television.
