Sony is Making a ‘Crossfire’ Movie Adaptation (But Don’t Get Too Excited, Because It’s Not About the Board Game)

Though the Crossfire board game was originally released in the early 1970s, ’90s kids will surely remember its ridiculous, over-the-top, and awesomely cheesy commercials with kids in leather jackets duking it out in the game while lightning flashed and an epic song played in the background. Now Sony has decided to make a Crossfire movie, but it’s not a futuristic sci-fi feature set in a world where life or death is decided by who wins the game. (Where’s that movie, Hollywood?) Instead, the stud...

The Strain: Season 3

Directors: Various First aired: 2016 Contains spoilers It is true to say that I fell behind with the Strain, having watched Season 1 and Season 2 this season just seemed to slip off radar for some reason. That has been made up for and I did really enjoy this third outing into the world based on the books by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan. I say based on because, more and more, the seasons slipped away from the exact story – keeping the shape but not the detail. This was a deliberate move t...

Praising (and Criticizing) ‘The Strain’ on the Eve of Its Final Season

This Sunday , The Strain heads into its fourth and final season. Created by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, it’s a horror drama with enviable pedigree and made waves at the time of its premiere in 2014 with its unsettling ad campaign (most of the promo images for the first season featured a worm making its way into an unfortunate victim’s eye, which was eventually taken out of circulation due to complaints) and its new take on vampires. Since then, the show — much like the vampires on it —...

‘The Strain’ Final Season Trailer: Corey Stoll is Humanity’s Last Hope

An FX show that’s had its ups and downs is coming to a close this summer. Based on Chuck Hogan and Guillermo del Toro‘s trilogy of books, The Strain was initially expected to last three years. Early on, though, its creators realized there was more left to the series to explore. At one point, showrunner Carlton Cuse thought it could go to season five, but they’re happy to end the series on its own terms with the fourth and final season, which takes place after humans lost the world to vampires. ...

FX Renews The Strain For Fourth And Final Season

There was a lot of buzz when The Strain first hit on FX, largely due to the fact that Guillermo del Toro was involved in something on television. The show has held audiences in its grip as its world became increasingly desperate, and while perhaps not quite at the top of the ratings juggernaut list, it has performed well for the network. The series has been renewed for a fourth and final season, and while that may seem like an odd “renewing and canceling at the same time” move, that’s not really...

Michael Bay Puts Aside Robots for Dramatic War Film: ‘13 Hours’ Tells a Different Story of the Events at Benghazi

For the past three years, the Republican Party has latched onto the 2012 embassy attacks in Benghazi, Libya in an obsessive effort to derail Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. In a display of opportunistic timing of the upcoming presidential election, director Michael Bay steps aside from the “Transformers” series once again and returns with the action-drama “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi.” Despite the timing, the film is based on the apolitical book “13 Hours: The Inside Accou...

Two days ago, I showed my Public Speaking class a video of Michael Bay attempting to deliver a speech at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show before a teleprompter fumble forced the director of Bad Boys and Armageddon to abandon the stage. Now, just to be clear, the point of my showing that vid wasn't to toss tomatoes at the man who's reaped box office bounties to the tune of billions of dollars as helmer of Paramount's long-running Transformers franchise. Rather, the goal was to show how anyone, ...

Critics generally liked the show, it managed to hold on to strong ratings in its 10 p.m. Eastern slot on Sundays, even when the NFL season kicked off, and it was renewed for a second season.
