The Messengers Path To Paradise

The Messengers
Season 1 Episode 3: “Path To Paradise”
Directed by Cherie Nowlan
Written by Eoghan O’Donnell, Matt Pitts, Oanh Ly
Starring Shantel VanSanten, Sofia Black-D’Elia, Joel Courtney, JD Pardo, Jon Fletcher, Diogo Morgado, Anna Diop
The CW
Air Date: Friday, May 1st, 2015, 9:00pm

Last week’s The Messengers found the group converging at a bar with a really cool and appropriate name – The Last Supper, seemingly by coincidence. Which is crazy because when they all previously found out about their group and mission in the hospital chapel, Rose (Anna Diop) reveals all, and they all leave roadrunner dust in their wake. Raul (JD Pardo) saves Erin (Sofia Black-D’Elia) from the cops. Remember – her abusive ex is a cop, who will use his influence to hurt her and take back their child. They do not get to the one-armed vet in Joshua’s (Jon Fletcher) vision in time. How will that affect the mission?

This may be cheesy, but I do like the wings in the mirror effect.

The Messengers Strange Magic

The Messengers
Season 1 Episode 2: “Strange Magic”
Directed by Duane Clark
Written by Eoghan O’Donnell, Trey Callaway
Starring Shantel VanSanten, Sofia Black-D’Elia, Joel Courtney, JD Pardo, Jon Fletcher, Diogo Morgado, Anna Diop
The CW
Air Date: Friday, April 24th, 2015, 9:00pm

The Messengers “awakened” last week, and this pilot about angels who have to save mankind from the impending apocalypse started pretty intriguing – emphasis on pretty. Before the review of this week’s episode, let’s give a little pilot recap.

A meteor-like something crashes into Earth and the shockwave kills five people, who then come back to life with angel wings you can only see in a mirror. Peter (Joel Courtney), comes back and stands up to his bully, not realizing his new strength and kills him. Erin (Sofia Black-D’Elia), heals her daughter’s wounds, then steals her out of the hospital, away from her violent father. Vera (Shantel VanSanten) meets the devil (Diogo Morgado), who promises to bring her to her stolen son if she does a favor for him. Raul (JD Pardo) carjacks Erin, but her daughter is soft on him. And Joshua (Jon Fletcher), goes from being a run-of-the-mill televangelist, to one who knows the hellfire and damnation truth. Oh, and gross to his dad getting Joshua’s wife pregnant.

It’s time to try a new show! The Messengers premiered Friday night on The CW. It’s got 3 pros and 1 con as far as I can see.

Pro – It’s on The CW, a network that hones supernatural dramas, with lots of action and emotion.
Pro – Pretty actors/actresses with familiar but not too familiar faces.
Pro – It’s about angels who have to stop the coming Apocalypse. Hello? I have to try it.

Con – Airs Friday nights, a slow tv night. Hell, it’s a slow night for us too.

SDCC 2014: Paramount panel

The final film panel of San Diego Comic-Con’s Hall H on Thursday belonged to Paramount Pictures, which presented Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Project Almanac, Hercules, Hot Tub Time Machine 2, and Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar.

As the room darkened the voice of SpongeBob Squarepants was heard over the speakers, searching for Hall H. Voice actor Tom Kenny then came on to cheers from the crowd as he introduced footage from the film The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, in which Spongebob and crew have to leave the ocean to become superheroes to save Bikini Bottom. This was followed by a video retrospective of the history of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, from the earliest sketches to the cultural phenomenon that followed.
