At ‘LOST’s End: A 5 Controversy, May 23rd, 2010
Olympus Athens   |  

ABC's LOST

May 23rd, 2010 marked the end of one of the most talked about shows on television – ABC’s LOST. Created by JJ Abrams, Damon Lindelof, and Jeffrey Lieber, this supernateral, mystical, mythological, theological, science fictional drama relied on flashbacks and eventual flashforwards, mixed with the present, to tell watercooler television. When it ended 5 years ago today, it sparked outrageous controversy, reminiscient of the outcry at The Sopranos ending, three years before. Still today (and I think it still will be 20 years from now), there remains such a divide between those who loved and those who hated the series, especially that unexpected ending. For the most part, the majority of viewers tend to land on one side of endings – Dexter, most hated, while Sons Of Anarchy, most loved. Not so with this show.

Which side did you fall on?

Black Metal Friday: Vattnet Viskar “Breath Of The Almighty”
Ides Bergen   |  

Vattnet Viskar Band Photo

The phrase “vattnet viskar” is Swedish for “the water whispers.” There could not be a bigger misnomer for the band of the same name.

Vattnet Viskar, the band, hail from New Hampshire and are at the very forefront of the new generation of American black metal. Their sound and fury is a mixture of blackened doom and post-rock similar to their contemporaries Tombs or Wolves In The Throne Room.

Century Media Records is set to release the sophomore album by Vattnet Viskar entitled Settler on June 16th in North America and June 29th in Europe. While we wait, here (below) is the official video for “Breath of the Almighty” from the band’s superb 2013 debut album Sky Swallower and be sure to check them out on tour this summer in a city near you.

Lip Sync Battle Salt Vs. Pepa

Last night’s Lip Sync Battle split apart the “Push It” duo, Salt-N-Pepa! Cheryl “Salt” James performed Kelly Clarkson’s pop rock anthem, “Since You Been Gone.” And she was adorable! She really showed us another side. Take it from LL.

LL Cool J: Who knew you were a pop diva?

Then it was Sandra “Pepa” Denton‘s turn to strut on the stage with legs for miles, with Katy Perry’s “Firework.” Nice job!

‘Tomorrowland’ Insight From The Film’s Cast and Creative Team
LA Spectre   |  

Tomorrowland

Tomorrowland¬†opens this week and for the intrigued who aren’t Disney Geeks, many questions have been asked about the mysteries of the film named after the land in the theme parks. And no, it doesn’t tell the tale of how much better it is to get a fast pass for Space Mountain than stand in line. The picture is the optimistic story of a young girl (Britt Robertson), who discovers a pin that transports her to a world of infinite possibilities, and enlists the jaded inventor (George Clooney) to find a way there and unlock their destinies. Director Brad Bird, star George Clooney¬†and writers Damon Lindelof and Jeff Jensen, shared the origin of the ideas behind the film, and the mark it strives to leave in Disney’s legacy.

Movie Review: Tomorrowland
LA Spectre   |  

Tomorrowland review

Tomorrowland
Directed by Brad Bird
Written by: Damon Lindelof, Brad Bird, and Jeff Jensen
Starring George Clooney, Britt Robertson, Hugh Laurie, Raffey Cassidy
Disney Pictures
Rated PG | Run Time 130 Minutes
Release Date: May 22, 2015

The mystery finally unfolds with the release of Disney’s Tomorrowland. Taking its name from the area in both California’s and Florida’s Disney theme parks, the speculation ends here in regards to whether the film is clever advertising, or a picture that speaks to the legacy of Walt Disney’s dreams for a sustainable world created by the world’s greatest minds. Jensen and Lindelof based the film on an idea of Disney’s original concept plans for an Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow, but with an added narrative based around the story of girl genius Casey (Britt Robertson), who finds a pin that shows her a futuristic place where it’s fun to do the impossible. After some internet research and nudging by an animatronic A.I. child named Athena (Raffey Cassidy), Casey arrives at the front door of former boy genius and inhabitant of Tomorrowland Frank Walker (George Clooney). Unable to convince him to show her the way to the place where rockets still fly and progress blooms, Walker gives in when secret animatronic agents are sent to eradicate them and attack his home. Also, this happens just as Casey discovers one of his inventions that forecasts the end of their world, and has a countdown ticking down the days. Before she finishes berating him for sitting there and doing nothing, they flee the happiest blaster-touting robots you’ve ever seen. And along with Athena, who reveals that something is broken in Tomorrowland, Casey and Frank discover that their creative minds make them dangerous to whatever took over the wonderful place, as they may be the only ones able to save it and the world.
