Joe Mantello’s cinematic updating of Matt Crowley’s seminal LGBT play The Boys in the Band is a great example of how one can make something visually and dramatically captivating for the screen while retaining everything that made the stage version special.
This wait is over. Just in time for your holiday shopping lists, Star Trek, the best action movie of the year, arrives on Blu-ray and DVD this week, with Chris Pine starring as Mr. James T. Kirk. Also out, Cameron Diaz stars in My Sister’s Keeper, Bruno has Sacha Baron Cohen pulling his usual shtick, and the great Michael Caine stars in Is Anybody There?
Check this out, Trekkers. The DVD for Star Trek is still a little over a month away, but the blooper reel for the film has already made its way to YouTube.
Opening this weekend in theatres, J.J. Abrams directs the Star Trek reboot, starring a young cast of go-getters as sci-fi’s most well-known crew. Also debuting, Atom Egoyan‘s Adoration stars Devon Bostick as a confused orphan looking for answers about his parent’s lives.
It’s a little depressing to me, but this year’s batch of Heroes are turning out to be duds of lamely epic proportions. Even the so called “Villains,” which are the focus of this chapter in the story, seem to be coming up a bit short on the incredo-meter. They’re like caricatures of bad guys that my friends and I made up on the grade five recesses. If it wasn’t for Zachary Quinto as Sylar, this third, depressing season wouldn’t even be worth talking about.
Rounding up the news this weekend and the focus is all about television, oh yeah, and aging singers who like bathrooms.
Cast members of the hit sci-fi series Heroes stopped by Toronto’s Yonge and Dundas square today to meet with fans and sign DVDs. At the event were stars Zachary Quinto (Sylar), James Kyson Lee (Ando), Noah Gray-Cabey (Micah), and one of the show’s new additions for season two, Dania Ramirez (Maya).
