Lie to Me: The Third and Final Season DVD

It’s the third and final season of Lie to Me, out on DVD from Fox. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:

Featuring an all-star cast, Dr. Cal Lightman (Tim Roth) heads a team of experts at The Lightman Group who assists federal law enforcement, government agencies, local police and private individuals with their most difficult cases by focusing on the details everyone miss. Dr. Gillian Foster (Kelli Williams) is a gifted psychologist and Lightman’s professional partner brings balance to the partnership by looking at the bigger picture. Eli Loker (Brendan Hines) is Lightman’s lead researcher who is fascinated by herd mentality and group think. He says everything on his mind and often pays the price. Lightman’s protégé Ria Torres (Monica Raymund) is one of the few “naturals” in the field of deception detection. Her raw, untrained ability to read people makes her a force to be reckoned with. Meanwhile, Lightman discovers the truth is harder to face at home, as his teenage daughter, Emily Lightman (Hayley McFarland), begins dating.

Skellig The Owl Man DVD Cover Art

Based on the award-winning children’s book, Skellig: The Owl Man is coming to DVD from Image Entertainment. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:

Young Michael (Bill Millner – British Independent Film Award® nominee, Son Of Rambow) is intelligent, impressionable – and he hates his life. His new home is shabby and embarrassing. He has grown distant from his family. He’s friendless, and a prime target for the bullies at school. Worst of all, his baby sister is dangerously ill. But things change when Michael discovers a very strange occupant in the backyard garage. Dirty, irritable – with highly unusual habits – “Skellig” (Tim Roth – BAFTA® winner, Oscar® nominee “Rob Roy”) also has one remarkable trait: atrophied wings wrapped around his back. Soon, magical things begin to happen to Michael, giving hope to his dreary life – and he is sure that Skellig is responsible. When Michael’s sister takes a turn for the worse, he looks once more to his shy, odd friend. Can Skellig help Michael one more time?

Happy Birthday, Tom Stoppard

Tom Stoppard

Happy birthday to master scribe Tom Stoppard–who worked on both Brazil and Shakespeare in Love–and whose play, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, is one of my favorites…and one I would travel long, ludicrous distances to play one of the leads in. And have, actually.

Moby Dick screenplay cover art
  • Moby Dick is set at Universal to be helmed by Timur Bekmambetov, who directed Wanted. They tapped Adam Cooper and Bill Collage (Accepted) to scribe. They’re moving away from the whole Ishmael narration thing so they can “depict the whale’s decimation of other ships prior to its encounter with Ahab’s Pequod, and Ahab will be depicted more as a charismatic leader than a brooding obsessive.” Oh, of course. Wait–what? “This is an opportunity to take a timeless classic and capitalize on the advances in visual effects to tell what at its core is an action-adventure revenge story.” Hold on…huh? “Bekmambetov will look to apply the visual flourish he displayed on the U summer hit Wanted.” Does this mean we’re going to get harpoon-time? Does that sound like a good idea to anyone at all? And apparently the director’s working on a Wanted 2. That’s an idea I can get behind. Or wait–Sam Jackson as Ahab. That I might at least watch. Source: Variety.

    Image taken from the Ray Bradbury screenplay of Moby Dick that Subterranean Press published (which we discussed previously). Don’t get excited. Universal probably never even considered it.

    The Incredible Hulk (2008) – 27 Second Review

    The Incredible Hulk movie poster

    Written by: Zak Penn & Edward Norton
    Directed by: Louis Leterrier
    Starring: Edward Norton, Liv Tyler, Tim Roth, William Hurt, Tim Blake Nelson

    Review: This movie has gotten bad reviews from critics due to the lack of a worthy storyline and any deep character development. These people go to movies for different reasons than I do. The effects were quite nice, the splode was kickass, and the splode was kickass. Did I mention the splode? Well, I meant to. It was kickass.

    Time: 16 seconds

    The Incredible Hulk (2008) – Movie Review

    The Incredible Hulk movie poster

    Beyond Believability: The Incredible Hulk

    Written by: Zak Penn & Edward Norton
    Directed by: Louis Leterrier
    Starring: Edward Norton, Liv Tyler, Tim Roth, William Hurt, Tim Blake Nelson

    First, the revamp of the new Hulk franchise has some promising things going for it. A FEW. The Banner/Hulk back story is cleverly covered in the opening credits sparing the audience from a tired drama tinged rehash that we’ve been through before. There also some clever cameos by Stan Lee, Lou Ferrigno and even the very dead Bill Bixby.

    But the biggest problem that The Incredible Hulk must overcome however is not the military, gamma radiation or even his broken heart, but the amazingly shallow storyline he’s been stuck with.

    Once again we are treated to a comic book film that demeans the intelligence of the audience by throwing together a story with such minimal character development that it drowns under an avalanche of big booms, CGI gimmickry and impotent drama.

    If Stephen Sommers’ Mummy and Michael Chiklis’ The Thing Had a Kid Together…

    Abomination: The Toy?

    So we’re looking forward to The Incredible Hulk to redeem the true abomination that was Ang Lee’s miserable attempt to launch a franchise. In fact, we’re sort of amazed that “Hulk 2” is even happening, so badly did the Lee Hulk suck.

    And Tim Roth is on board to play Emil Blonsky, who as everyone who reads the comics knows, turns into The Abomination. The Abomination, who always reminded me of the Stretch Monster, is…well, you never mind–it looks just freaking like the Stretch Monster. Green and scaly and such. But this version looks like…well, like the post title says: a mummified, de-rocked version of The Thing. For those who want to keep the image a secret to themselves, we’ve blurred it out for your protection. Good luck keeping your eyes virgin, though.

    I honestly don’t care what he looks like as long as the movie has approximately 100 times more coolness than the first film, which, considering the biting the head off of a rocket and spitting it at a helicopter bit was the only part, means that I only want about thirty minutes of coolness. That’s not too much to ask, is it?

    For the full unblurred version, check out CHUD.

    Rosencrantz and Guildenstern: Foul, No Rhetoric

    Because every once in a while the world needs to be reminded that Gary Oldman is not just brilliant at playing villains but just flat brilliant.
