Blu-Ray Review: Silent Hill (Collector's Edition)

Silent Hill
Blu-ray (Collector’s Edition)
Director: Christophe Gans
Screenwriters: Roger Avary, Christophe Gans, Nicolas Boukhrief
Cast: Radha Mitchell, Sean Bean, Laurie Holden, Deborah Kara Unger, Kim Coates, Tanya Allen, Alice Krige, Jodelle Ferland
Distributor: Scream Factory
Rated R | 125 Minutes
Release Date: July 9, 2019

Directed by Christophe Gans (Brotherhood of the Wolf), 2006’s Silent Hill is an adaptation of Konami’s 1999 survival horror video game of the same name. Written by Gans and Roger Avary (Beowulf), the film stars Radha Mitchell (Pitch Black, Rogue) as Rose, a woman searching for her missing daughter (Jodelle Ferland) in the abandoned town of Silent Hill.

A ghost town for 30 years, Silent Hill was the site of a massive coal-seam fire. Now, it exists as a town trapped in a dark dream, occupied by damned souls and hideous monsters. Like the Playstation game, the film incorporates elements of exploration, puzzle-solving, and combat, while building dread through its eerie atmosphere.

SDCC 2012: The Walking Dead panel

AMC’s The Walking Dead presence here on Day 2 of this year’s San Diego Comic-Con kicked off with moderator Chris Hardwick (The Talking Dead) introducing the panel, including executive producers Robert Kirkman, David Alpert, Greg Nicotero, Gayle Anne Hurd, and showrunner Glen Mazzara, and debuting the trailer for the upcoming Season 3 (which you can watch here below).

Kirkman, who created the comic book series that the TV show is based on, said viewers can look forward to a fully stage-built yet realistic prison set. Alpert said that the series has exceeded the vision he had in his head from the comic book. Hardwick mentioned that naysayers who complained about lack of zombies early in season two, certainly had nothing to complain about by season’s end. Nicotero said he’s striving to create more realistic decomposed and hungry zombies moving forward in The Walking Dead‘s timeline. He wants to keep the audience guessing with what effects they’re going to unleash. He’s recently directed his first episode and felt it rewarding to him to finally connect with the actors.

Geek Commentary: The Walking Dead: Season 2 Episode 1

The Walking Dead

Watching AMC’s The Walking Dead is an all-consuming experience for me. I can’t shut up about it for days after, and its really awkward when people start tripping over my dropped jaw. In the interest of my sanity, I decided to transcribe my thoughts about each episode as they happen, rather than let them build up and bubble over into one giant “SQUEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!” that can be heard several towns over.

For Season 2, Episode 1: What Lies Ahead, I’ve compiled a running commentary here, complete with approximate minute marks for reference.

Before you proceed, I must say that there are SPOILERS ahead, so if you haven’t seen this episode yet (SHAME!), go watch it now! Right now. I’ll wait. Ok no, I won’t, so here goes…

AMC Announces 90–Minute Season 2 Premiere Of ‘The Walking Dead’

The Walking Dead Season 2

On Sunday, October 16 at 10pm, the highly anticipated second season of The Walking Dead will premiere on AMC.

To add to the excitement fans have for the 13–episode second season, AMC has also announced that the premiere episode will run 90 minutes in length, much like the pilot episode did last Halloween when the show first began.

Now the only question that remains—after showrunner Frank Darabont was supposedly fired, for which AMC has faced a ton of backlash—is if the same large following will continue to watch the show, or if some fans will have shunned it.

The Walking Dead, Season One

The Walking Dead, Season One
Blu-ray | DVD
Based on the Comic Book Series Created by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore,
and Charlie Adlard, Developed for Television by Frank Darabont
Starring Andrew Lincoln, Jon Bernthal, Sarah Wayne Callies, Norman
Reedus, Steven Yeun
Anchor Bay Entertainment
Release Date: March 8, 2011

When I first heard about AMC’s The Walking Dead, I was very intrigued. Not many networks take chances on comic book properties, let alone one that has nothing to do with tights or flights. I had read a few issues of the comic prior to watching the series and liked them very much, but for the most part I went into the series not really knowing what to expect, and I think that’s why I was so taken aback by what I saw.

From previews and television spots one could surmise that the show would be a relentless gore fest. While there is plenty of gore, The Walking Dead doesn’t rely on that to propel its incredible story. Producer Frank Darabont has an immense passion for this show, one that shines through in each episode on the recently released DVD/Blu-ray sets.

An Overview of ‘The Walking Dead’ Season 1 Finale

BAADASSSSS!   |

Walking Dead Season 1 FinaleLast night the groundbreaking AMC series The Walking Dead, developed for television by acclaimed filmmaker Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Mist) and blockbuster producer Gale Anne Hurd (The Terminator, Aliens) and based on the Image Comics series created by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard, ended its first season on a somber and occasionally revealing note that valued the further development of the show’s principal characters and the severity of their situation over gruesome zombie carnage, and it proved to be a powerful finale that raised a few questions and for me at least was only somewhat disappointing. The ratings for the finale are not in yet, but it wouldn’t surprise me if the episode pulled in even more viewers than last week’s edition, which drew 2.8 million viewers, the show’s biggest audience since the highly-hyped Halloween night premiere.

At this point in time, people who are excited about AMC’s new zombie series The Walking Dead have been itching for some kind of trailer to help with excitement for the October premiere. Sadly, we’ve only really been given images to check out thus far, and that’s no different today.

Five new images have been released, and these show off a few of the main character, Rick Grimes, fighting off a swarm of zombies. Most of the images we’ve seen have just shown the zombies, and there are a couple more of those here, but it’s good to see some character action.

TV Review: ‘The Shield’ Series Finale

By David Chen

ShieldThe Shield
Series Finale
Starring Michael Chiklis, Walton Goggins, Catherine Dent, CCH Pounder, Jay Karnes, Laurie Holden
FX Network
Air date: November 25, 2008

After 88 episodes of groundbreaking, gritty television, The Shield is finally over. It was a crown masterwork of police procedural drama, utilizing such creative storytelling that viewers should feel blessed simply to have witnessed its unfolding. But if there’s been one flaw with this show, it’s that it’s always been just a little bit too in love with its main characters. Time and time again, we’ve seen Vic and his Strike Team worm their way out of every single legal conundrum and gang-related bear trap that has been thrown their way. This crew has done some pretty sick, twisted stuff over the past few years, and they had much to atone for leading into the finale. Creator and showrunner Shawn Ryan had plenty of opportunities to send some of these characters to jail or to kill them off, but he always seemed reluctant to do so. Not that we ever really wanted him to: It seems a warmed over observation, but part of the brilliance of The Shield was making you root for every single one of these characters. With season 7 being the show’s last, Ryan had nothing to lose anymore; he could deal with the characters and bring their arcs to a conclusion in whatever way he wanted to. The question after all these years of torture, corruption, and murder is, would Vic Mackey (Michael Chiklis) walk away? Or would he finally get caught?

With just one 90-minute-long episode left, I desperately wanted there to be a reckoning, some final closure for all the injustice that has been doled out, or at least some closure. To a huge extent, this series finale thoroughly delivered.

[WARNING: THE FOLLOWING CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS FOR THE FINAL EPISODE OF THE SHIELD].
