AMC's Monster Hit: "The Walking Dead"

By Karen Moul

The Walking Dead
Caution - Spoilers!


It looks like AMC might have a hit with The Walking Dead, the new six-part series based on the comic books by Robert Kirkman. Sunday night's opener drew 5.3 million viewers, more than any series premiere this year on any cable network, according to SpoilerTV. It was also the highest audience for any series ever on AMC (the season finale of Mad Men drew half as many viewers.) Most critics seem to think if AMC can hold a good chunk of that audience, a renewal is likely.

This show deserves it. AMC has assembled a dream production team that includes Kirkman, writer/director/producer Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile), and effects and makeup guru Greg Nicotero, whose credits include more than a hundred feature films. Together they created a show that satisfies die-hard zombie fans as well as viewers new to Kirkman's story. And the network has clearly put some money into this show - great production values, great special effects (for TV), great music. The zombies look awesome.

Alice in Wonderland is All About the Visuals

One of the first things that will draw people to see Alice in Wonderland is the visuals, which do not disappoint. While the 3-D experience does not quite reach that of Avatar, released earlier this year, it is still a delight and well worth the money. The visuals are what one comes to expect from Tim Burton, who directed the film. The worlds are colorful and whimsical and bring the story to life.

Nothing But The Blood: True Blood Season 2

True Blood follows the life of Sooky Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), a waitress living in Bon Temps, Louisiana, who is anything but a normal southern girl. Sookie is telepathic and bombarded by people’s thoughts until she meets Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), who she can’t read because he is a vampire.

"Wanted" Does Not Disappoint

Wanted, which is loosely based on Mark Millar’s comic book series of the same name, takes its audience on an entertaining ride that does not disappoint. The movie opens with the narration and introduction of Wesley Gibson (James McAvoy) as an apathetic doormat, who works a boring office job and ignores the fact that his best friend is sleeping with his girlfriend, coping instead by popping anti-anxiety medication at every turn.  He is seemingly living an unimportant existence until the father that he never knew is killed, setting off a series of events that lead to him leaving his old life to train to become part of a secret society known as the Fraternity that his father had belonged to before he was killed...

The X-Files Sequel Will Make You Believe Again

After ten years (and thirteen days) Mulder and Scully are finally back in the long awaited sequel of the first The X-Files film with The X-Files: I Want to Believe. This installment takes place six years after the season finale.  Being a “monster of the week” type storyline as opposed to a mythology one, it is much different than its predecessor, as it seems to focus more on the horror genre rather than on science fiction.
