Advance Review: Shadowhunters - The Descent into Hell is Easy

ShadowhuntersAfter watching the second episode of Shadowhunters, I have higher hopes for the show. I was impressed; it drew me right in. The quality of the show, especially the acting, fared much better than in the pilot. The actors seemed to be more in tune with their characters and made me want to keep watching.

I especially enjoyed watching Isabelle (Emeraude Toubia) and Simon (Alberto Rosende). If you weren't a Simon/Isabelle shipper before, you should be by now.

Advance Review: Shadowhunters - All the Legends are True

ShadowhuntersTuesday ABC Family (soon to be Freeform) premieres it's new series Shadowhunters, based on the bestselling book series, The Mortal Instruments, by Cassandra Clare. The series takes place in modern day New York and follows Clary Fray, played by Katherine McNamara, who discovers that she is not who she thought was. There is a world hidden beyond our own that she has been made to forget. She comes from a family of Shadowhunters, half-human half-angel hybrid demon hunters. When her mother (Maxim Roy) is kidnapped, she, along with her best friend Simon (Alberto Rosende), are pulled into this new world. With the help of fellow Shadowhunters Jace (Dominic Sherwood), Isabelle (Emeraude Toubia), and Alec (Matthew Daddario), they must not only try to save her mother and recover her memories, but also stop demons and other supernatural creatures from destroying everything.

As a fan of the book series, and knowing that the story was previously released as a movie, I wasn't sure what to expect. Certain aspects for the series had been changed from the start - for example, the character of Luke (Isaiah Mustafa) is a detective in television show rather than a book store owner, which will I'm sure add a different spin. There are also some new characters coming to the series as well.

Advance Review: The Magicians

The MagiciansOn Monday, January 25th, Syfy will premiere the first two episodes of it's new series, The Magicians, based on the New York Times best-selling book series by Lev Grossman. The series follows Quentin Coldwater (Jason Ralph), a nerdy fan of fantasy novels, who decides he must grow up and move on as he faces grad school, but instead ends up at a secret New York university, Brakebills University for Magical Pedagogy. He gets more than he bargained for when he leaves behind his friends to discover that magic is not only real, but so may be the world he and his friends have been reading about since childhood, and their own world may be in danger.

The first episode pulls you in quickly as Quentin, who's always felt out of place, discovers Brakebills and realizes that his life is about to change. He must prove that he has what it takes to become a magician and navigate this new world, which isn't all fun and games; magic proves that it can have dire consequences.

DVD Review: The Anomaly - An Ambitious Sci-Fi Gem - Out Now

The AnomalyToday the science fiction film The Anomaly comes to Blu-ray and DVD. Set in the future, the film stars and is directed by Noel Clarke, who plays Ryan Reeve, an ex-soldier suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.

Doctor Who - The Witch's Familiar - 9.02 Post Mortem

Doctor WhoFollowing the review is a very detailed recap of the episode, including quotes (yes I went overboard again).

Compassion and choices. That's what the premiere of Doctor Who is really about in the end. Does the Doctor still have compassion; is he a good man? He struggles with these questions throughout the premiere - his leaving of Davros as a boy could very well have made him the monster that he is, yet his change of heart to later save him gives Davros and the Daleks the understanding of mercy.

Davros questions The Doctor towards the end of part two if he could commit genocide - as a choice, not as self-defense but a choice. This is actually a resurgence of a similar choice, as The Doctor faced the same predicament in "Genesis of the Daleks" in the original series. He then, as well as in this episode, chooses the higher road. Though Davros has shown his compassion not to always be a good choice, saying it might kill him in the end.

His compassion is a big part of what makes The Doctor who he is, rather than someone like Missy: he is a good man, whether he accepts the fact or not.

Doctor Who - The Magician's Apprentice - 9.01 Post Mortem

Doctor WhoFollowing the review is a very detailed recap of the episode, including quotes (I think I went a bit overboard!).

From the beginning of "The Magician's Apprentice" they hit the ground running. The opening scene with the hand mines is creepy and the moment of revealing the boy as Davros is shocking. At the start we are also introduced to Colony Sarff. The makeup design and later reveal of his transformation was also a great affect. I also loved the fact that Colony Sarff visited places and characters that viewers have seen in the new Doctor Who series.

However, probably my favorite moment from the episode was The Doctor's grand entrance. The image of Peter Capaldi as a rock god really worked and showed a different side of his personality.
