Behold - A movie clip to make you keep counting the days until November 21st!!
Who is looking forward to the third episode of Gracepoint tonight? I am!
Despite David Tennant’s neck beard (dear God, why?!) and the nasal whine that occasionally creeps into his best attempt at an American accent, I am on pins and needles waiting to find out not just who killed the boy but why.
Last week’s episode offered us some seemingly meaningful breadcrumbs on the trail to finding a solution - plus a bit of insight into what brought Detective Emmett Carver to the sleepy town of Gracepoint in the first place.
We have been hearing about Bats Vs Supes and all the DC characters they are trying to cram into that one movie for a while now, but Warner Bros. has finally announced their long-range plans for the DC Entertainment feature films.
Including FINALLY a Wonder Woman movie!!!
(Remember - DC Television/actors and characters are a completely separate thing, so NO, Stephen Amell and Grant Gustin are NOT going to be in the movies no matter how much we wish they were...)
Before we delve into this week’s episode, let’s revisit the good, the bad, and the ugly news from the world of Gotham this week. First, the good: The Hollywood Reporter informed us that Fox has ordered more episodes of Gotham, meaning that its premiere season will be a full 22 episodes.
Then there’s the bad and the ugly, which are one and the same: Deadline: Hollywood reported that Warner Bros. had planned to “paint down” a white stuntwoman rather than hiring a minority to perform stunts for a guest spot in an upcoming episode. Fortunately bad publicity helped them see the error of their ways, and they’ve since recast the stunt role. Hopefully there’ll be no more such nonsense; it is 2014, and the era of blackface should be far behind us.
And now on to Arkham! Someone is killing councilmen in advance of the vote to determine the future of the old asylum - the Mayor and Falcone are backing the plan that was developed by the late Waynes, but Marone is making a play for power in Gotham and it appears he won’t be denied.
New York Comic Con was this past weekend, and one of the more awesome things we've found is this test footage for a new Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy animated series, slated for Disney XD next year!! Enjoy!
OK - I waited through the weekend so everyone could catch up on their DVRs and such to review the season 3 premiere of Arrow. My initial review - Holy Crap!
This season comes out of the gate swinging. It is a roller coaster of getting everything you ever wanted to see on the show and then having it yanked from our grasp.
Oliver and Felicity finally go on a date! Then BOOM. Restaurant gets blown up - it is 'too dangerous' to date Felicity anymore. Damn it Oliver! You are an idiot.
The top-secret Brad Bird/Disney feature Tomorrowland, starring George Clooney, released it's first trailer at NYCC today. Here's your first look.
I'm still not sure what it's about, but I am intrigued...
Seriously - look at that smile, he's adorable!
The rest of the cast isn't too shabby either! Every member of the cast so far seems to be in perfect harmony with their characters and relationships. You can tell there is still a ton of room for mystery, discovery and growth for the cast throughout the season.
I swear when I saw Jessie Martin walk out of the bank at the beginning I heard the 'dun-dun' of a Law & Order intro in my head.
META HUMANS! I love Arrow, but finally, some real superpowers! I look forward to the reveal of new friendly and diabolical Metas in the future. We already know that Professor Zoom, Captain Cold, Girder, Killer Frost, Vibe, Firestorm, Plastique, Mirrormaster and more will have appearances this season (and a massive tease for Grodd!) The special effects for the Flash running and the weather were top notch for television, so I say bring it on!
I am also thankful that they aren't playing the 'I have to hide who I am from everyone I love' thing again. It will cut down on the brooding.
And if all that hasn't convinced you - the massive tease at the ending moments will bring people back to watch for sure. I know I will!
Also, 2-night Arrow crossover starting in Episode 8!
OK, so a little longer, here are some thoughts (with minimal spoilers)
It is so great to see Simmons standing on her own and getting the job done.
And Skye - she is taking her Mini-May training to heart and kicking ass.
I love the small moments with Clark Gregg - there is a reason Coulson is such a fan favorite - and it is all him. The dinner scene was so sweet.
Fitz. My dear, sweet Fitz. Iain De Caestecker's performance in the scene where he faces off with Ward is amazing, heartbreaking and authentic.
Ward's revelation to Skye about wanting to take her to her Dad may have shook up Skye - but was no surprise to the audience and provided the only really flat scene in an otherwise stellar episode.
