Advance Review: Ascension - A Unique Voyage Into Space

By Jamie Ruby

AscensionMonday night Syfy premieres its new limited event, Ascension, which will run for three consecutive nights. The series follows a century-long space voyage as it has reached it's point of no return at fifty-one years, when there is a murder aboard the ship that will cause the crew and inhabitants to question their mission.

One of the interesting things about the series is that although it takes place in the present, the starship Ascension was launched in the 1960s. Therefore, none of the passengers have been influenced by the outside world and have developed their own society aboard the ship. As far as they know, they could be the last survivors of the human race after the Cold War. This makes it not only unique, but also poses problems for those dealing with the murder, as there is no outside help.

Epic Drama in Exodus: Gods and Kings

By Marcina Zaccaria

Exodus: Gods and KingsExodus: Gods and Kings
, the stunning action adventure drama directed by Ridley Scott, tells the story of Moses, the man who freed the Israelites.

Christian Bale (American Psycho and The Dark Knight Rises) is transformative as Moses. In him, the audience can see a tough warrior, a simple shepherd, and a man capable of parting the Red Sea. Bale shares the screen with Joel Edgerton, who plays the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses. Bale never seems hollow or withdrawn in the film, as he glares up to the sky and denounces God.

Exodus: Gods and Kings has enough sand and chariots to win the heart of the most stoic movie watcher. It is a story of power and enormous consequence. The lead actors consider who God is, and whether God or man has the greater power to kill. The swordplay and the emotion behind it are fierce, and the film, as a whole, is relentless. It doesn’t focus so much on good and evil, but rather, on the juxtaposition of massive impact and new movement. Though movie making has never seemed bigger or bolder, the film brings up real issues of humanity and frailty.

TRDWTR: A Unique Superhero Graphic Novel That's Definitely Worth a Look

By Jamie Ruby

The privately funded secret organization of TRDWTR (Technological Research and Development Working Towards a Resolution) is formed by Allen Downs, former CEO behind Unicore, as a front to his program he refers to as the Candlelight Program. The TRDWTR team is operated by the billionaire, who uses his fortune to equip the special operatives with the best tech and weaponry.

Looking Inside the Mind of Leonardo

By Marcina Zaccaria

Peter CapaldiInside the Mind of Leonardo, a new movie from History Films, is a stunning motion picture in 3D, featuring Peter Capaldi and directed by Julian Jones.

The documentary film takes place in Florence and Milan, and features potent monologues performed by BAFTA Award winning actor Peter Capaldi. Capaldi plays Leonardo in the film. The slim actor who received an Oscar for Best Live Action Short Film for his movie, Franz Kafka’s It’s a Wonderful Life, reveals the emotion behind Leonardo, the man who many regard as a genius.

Image after image, monologue after monologue, the film doesn’t fail to disappoint. So much is known about Leonardo da Vinci. The inventor, the artist, and the military theorist had over 6,000 pages of notebooks. Da Vinci’s notebooks feature visionary drawings, musings on experience and causation, and mundane lists of food items. Holding information about beauty, flight, and war, da Vinci’s musings make exceptional sense when spoken by Capaldi. Throughout the film, the Scottish actor brings life and meaning to Renaissance concepts and ideals.
