As a Marvel fan, the new Avengers trailer excites the geek in me. Admittedly, I have not seen all of the Marvel superhero movies like Ant Man or Doctor Strange, but these films have always been easy to catch up on. I also lack a lot of knowledge on Thanos and his whole character arc. It doesn’t bother me that I know nothing about those characters because I like to do a little research before I see a film anyway. I also wouldn’t allow the lack of knowledge to defer others from watching this film, but I do think it’s essential to see Captain America: Winter Soldier.
After watching the trailer, I have some thoughts. I am very excited to see Hulk. I don’t feel like he is well represented in the film series, and I believe he deserves his own current movie. I want to see him Hulk smash Thanos into oblivion. Obviously, that won’t happen because they have to make a second movie, but a girl can hope. I’m just praying he survives.
I am glad to see Shuri, and I hope she’s making something good to save Vision from greedy Thanos or whoever is trying to take the Mind Stone. I can’t wait to see some of the Black Panther cast in the movie. I, honestly, feel like black people sometimes don’t exist in the Marvel Film universe. It’s important to have representation, so they are a welcomed addition. Hopefully, we will start seeing other “ethnic” characters in the future playing these heroic roles. Shuri will cause a surge in young black girls pursuing STEM. Also any scene in Wakanda seems so vibrant and enchanting. My interest was at its peak when they were fighting there, and it will draw fans who are not as familiar with the whole franchise to the film. I just hope they don’t destroy the beautiful thriving ecosystem.
I don’t want to seem superficial, but these hairstyles got to go! I need an explanation for why Black Widow went from a ginger to a blonde in a matter of movies. She better be undercover or on the run because I’m not feeling the look. And then, I’m all for scruffiness. That’s why I’m a fan of Bucky, but it does not work on Captain America. It’s distracting. If this is really Chris Evans last Marvel film, I want my clean shaved Steve Rodgers back.
I have a sense that this film is going to end in tears for a few people. I envision many fan favorites deaths. Captain America’s fate does not look good at all! I know that Bucky will take over for him. Thor looks like a goner, and I can only hope that Loki survives. I can see Iron Man sacrificing himself, if not in this film then the second one. Or he will retire, I know that they need to make room for Riri Williams to take over for him. I know my Black Panther faves will be safe because they need to be in the sequel, and they can’t kill Spidey off just yet. I definitely see this film being similar to Dark Knight Rising. Lifelong fans will be devastated. Spider Man will offset some of the mourning with his one liners, so expect some laughs as well.
When asked about the various social issues the show addressed in the first season, Seth MacFarlane – creator of the Star Trek inspired television show The Orville – stated that “good science fiction should be topical.”
“The reaction to that episode [Season 1 Episode 3 “About A Girl”] initially was… a lot of weird hostility about it. ‘Who do you think you are writing about this stuff?’ The reaction
from the fans was the opposite.”
The Paley Center for Media hosts PaleyFest once a year to honor exceptional television series. Held on March 17, The Orville panel is the second event of the festival, second to Barbra Streisand herself. The panels begin with an episode screening and are followed by a Q&A between the moderator, creators and cast, and the audience.
It’s true that the fan favorite series does not shy away from difficult conversations, having covered religion, xenophobia, sexism, and other touchy topics in the first season. It’s also true that science fiction as a genre was created to entertain intellectually and leave the viewer with questions about societal norms (Shoutout to the Horror, Science Fiction and Fantasy class I’m taking this semester!) “In this genre there really should be nothing off-limits,” MacFarlane concludes, citing The Twilight Zone, which is known for it’s social commentary. My personal favorite of the cast, actress Penny Johnson added that “fans are smarter than people think,” and could, therefore, handle discussion on tough topics. J.Lee,
who plays Lt. John LaMarr said, “I like the fact that we throw a lot of stuff at the wall…we talk about stuff with a camera on that we all talk about anyway.”
The Orville is an endearing series, and the panel was a delightful insight into the casts’ personalities ties and dedication to the series. Here are some key moments:
While filming episode 9 “Cupid’s Dagger,” Johnson was told by MacFarlane to do “more tongue,” MacFarlane ended the story with, ”Needless to say, my time was up.”
Chad wanted to sit on the egg
Chad L. Coleman, who plays Bortus’ partner Klyden, asked MacFarlane why Bortus sat on the egg to hatch their child when Klyden was the more traditionally domestic of the pair. MacFarlane
responded, “You’ve thought more about that than I have.”
The Ant Story
Scott Grimes aka Lt. Gordon Malloy told a story about the time when 40-50 ants crawled into Peter Macon’s prosthetic face during a nap, which resulted in a chorus of disgusted groans from the audience. “It was 5 or 6,” Macon corrected, who plays Lt. Cmdr. Bortus on the show. “…and if I rip this [makeup] off I’m ripping my skin off with it, so I had to beat myself in the face to kill the ants.”
The season finale ended with a harsh but necessary breakup for the couple. When asked about the future of the relationship, MacFarlane responded, “Watch. You gotta watch. I’m not gonna tell you,” to boos from the audience.
Sealing the Deal
A fan asked MacFarlane how he was able to bring the show to fruition. MacFarlane said, “I tend to do things that I want to watch and space sci-fi has been kind of neglected for a long time. Everything was serialized and everything was really dark, and I missed the optimistic, hopeful sci-fi that is not necessarily a cautionary tale…it just went from there.”
A Light in the Room
“On behalf of the Catholic church, I’m pissed.” A fan opened his question with this joke about the season finale, resulting in a lot of laughs. He then asked the cast to speak on their power to shape culture. Johnson revealed that as a Christian she’s been judged by her peers for appearing on the show. “What you want to do is present the issues and be generous and loving about them to allow people to make their own decisions…If you’re not a part of being the light in the room, you’re just allowing anything to be talked about. My thing is to always be a light in the room.” On playing Claire, Johnson says, “I find it extraordinary. Seth and the rest of the writers have allowed me to be three-dimensional, and not this one dimension that we get stuck on. I get to do everything, and my God I am so excited because if you don’t see me on television it’s going to be somebody else so I’ll be missing my calling which is sinful anyway.” Do you see why she’s my favorite?
Peter Macon wore a KISS mask for at least a few months
Peter Macon revealed that after the made-for-TV Kiss movie came out in the 1970s, he wanted to be Gene Simmons for Halloween and also all the time. He wore the KISS mask 24/7, including one particular June day on the City Bus with his mom. “I feel for her now being a parent,” Macon says. “I needed to wear that mask. A little black kid in Chicago wearing a KISS mask…I imagine myself as a little kid watching [The Orville] like I watched Battlestar Galactica, and being a part of something that can go into someone’s young consciousness, I see that kid walking around in a KISS mask in June…I wasn’t told that I can’t wear the mask at all. It helped blossom my consciousness and I hope that with this kind of work I can do the same thing for some little kid.”
The Hardest Script for Seth MacFarlane to Write
“Nothing that I’ve found. I’ve been in comedy for years and I’ve never had an easier, smoother time writing than on this show. I was probably in the wrong business.” We can leave it at that.
MacFarlane reveals that there is an episode in season 2 that doesn’t have a sci-fi plot. “It’s all character pieces and that to me is the essence of what a good sci-fi show should be able to do. The character should be so strong that if you want to do a story that is pure drama or pure comedy you should be able to do that.”
What’s the deal with Kermit the Frog?
Viewers of the show know that MacFarlane’s character Capt. Ed Mercer has a Kermit doll on his desk that he idolizes. When asked if his obsession “extends to all muppets,” MacFarlane said, “I love The Muppets. The Great Muppet Caper is one of the best musicals ever made. I’m a big Henson fan. I was always astonished by what he pulled off. Kermit is basically a sock puppet with eyes. There’s so much personality in him and I feel that he never got his due as an actor. There’s so much soul in that character.” I adore Jim Henson praise as -fun fact- he graduated from the University of Maryland-College Park, not far from my hometown. Naturally, the panel ended with MacFarlane’s Kermit impersonation.
Despite its less than impressive reviews and 5.1 rating on Rotten Tomatoes, I actually found The Strangers: They Prey At Night a welcomed addition to the Strangers’ Franchise. This film compensated for the main issue I had with the first film. Although I did not care for the protagonist, Kinsey (Bailee Madison), I did enjoy how she actually fought back. She wasn’t just hiding the whole film. In the first film, I felt like the couple were waiting like pigs to the slaughter; so much so, that it almost became unbearable to watch. They didn’t start to fight back until it was too late.
This film featured the stereotypically family unit: the troubled teenage daughter, her stellar, athletic brother, and the parents who are trying so hard to keep the family together. Was I surprised or interested by the set up? No, not really, but I will say that was one of the few generic aspects of the film. Of course there was tension between Kinsey and her mother, Cindy (Christina Hendrix), but there was no true explanation for why. I believe if they were to explain what was the catalyst for Kinsey’s behavior and why she was being sent away we would receive the full story. Sadly, we will never know why she was being sent to a boarding school!
The film progresses with them driving to an abandoned trailer park and seemingly abandoned town, so you know nothing out of the usual. This town isn’t creepy at all. The family quickly makes themselves at home inside one of the trailers, but within 5 minutes Kinsey throws her sixth temper tantrum. She storms off to a creepy playground for a smoke break, but if they wanted to stay true to my generation Kinsey would’ve been juuling or vaping. Kinsey and her brother, Luke (Lewis Pullman), traipse around the trailer park and enter an empty trailer. Only to find the bodies of their dead relatives, and all hell breaks loose.
The family is entangled in a chase by the masked mad men seen in the earlier film. I was expecting complete carnage after the quick, pitiful deaths of the parents, but Luke and Kinsey went beyond my expectations. They gave the killers a run for their money. I was on the edge of seat rooting for brother-sister duo, and the audience erupted into cheers whenever they killed one of the masked mad men.
This is definitely a film to see in the theaters. The audience had a great time cheering and interacting with the film. I felt like I was in the actual movie, and I found myself attached to the characters. I really wanted to see them make it out alive!
Despite my enjoyment of this film, it missed the most essential ingredient to a slasher film. I never felt a sense of dread or terror in this film. I had so much fun watching the movie, but I wasn’t scared! What made the first film so popular is the dread. It resonated with people, my father still says, “Is Tamara home”. At the end of the day people watch horror movies to be scared. This is such an easy element to add that it was kind of disappointing. Picking a better soundtrack or changing the camera perspectives would’ve made a huge difference. This addition could’ve made the movie a 7.1 instead of a 5.1.
The new comedy, AP Bio, started airing February 1. It airs every Thursday on NBC at 8:30 ET time. Below is the hilarious trailer
This tv show is about a disgraced Harvard philosophy scholar Jack Griffin (Glenn Howerton) who lost his dream job to rival Miles Leonard (Tom Bennett). He is then forced to return to Toledo, Ohio, and work as a high school AP Biology teacher. As he comes crashing, literally, into Whitlock High School, it is absolutely clear that it’s not prerogative to teach any biology. Realizing he has a room full of honor roll students at his disposal, Jack decides instead to use the kids for his own benefit like getting revenge on Miles.
Last Thursday I participated in a conference call with actors Eddie Leavy and Sari Arambulo from the new NBC show AP Bio. Not only did the call give me a good feel of the series as a whole, but it also gave me some insight on the actors. They did a great job explaining their characters, and I could find myself and others my age relating to the students. This experience made me very excited to watch the show, and as soon as I got home I DVRed the upcoming episodes. I plan on binge watching the past episodes with friends this weekend. Below I will include highlights from the conversation:
Interviewer: This is a question for both of you. Can you tell us about your audition process for the show.
Eddie Leavy: So, you know, the audition was honestly, like, really simple and really easy for me. It was sort of just one audition in front of everybody, everyone that mattered. In front of the casting directors and Mike O’Brien and some of the other producers. And I just sort of went in and did my thing and I felt good about it. But, you know, you never really know what’s going to happen. And I found out very quickly that they wanted to offer me the role. So it was honestly a pretty seamless audition process. I mean I guess that’s the best way to do it just sort of one and one and here I am.
Sari Arambulo: Amazing. Yes I mean I had one kind of similar, like, my experience was slightly similar I would say. I went in once as well. But not everyone was there. I came on a little bit after because I was not a part of the pilot so I came on after that. And so when I auditioned I went in casting and I had one scene. And I believe the scene was from the episode that’s airing tonight Dating Toledoans. And it was just, like, two pages. I went in. I kind of knew the casting directors already from a previous project. So it was really painless and great and super fun. And then I left, I read it I think once and then I left. And I had, like, two other auditions that day. I remember I was just running around, like, as soon as that audition was done it was, like, out of my mind. And then the next day I remember finding out that I booked it. And then I was on set, like, three days later. So yes it was a really quick turnaround.
Interviewer: Great thank you. You guys get to see a lot of Glenn’s home his character Jack’s home life. But we don’t get to see a lot of kid’s home life. Do we get to know much about Anthony and Grace throughout the season, like, what they do after school and what their life’s like?
Sari Arambulo: Yes I can go. I think that yes we definitely as episodes go on we get to learn more and more about the kids. Specifically their home life as well as their personalities. I think you’re already starting to get a glimpse of Grace and I feel like the last episode that just aired you kind of get a sense of what kind of character Grace is. She is very smart and sweet and is, like, on the student council. So that’s definitely one of her passions. She loves to be in student government and is super organized. So it’s definitely interesting to see that side of things. And then I believe that in next week’s episode it’s the parent-teacher conference. So that’s when you’ll really get to see our home life. It was really fun to meet my onscreen mom and same for Eddie. I think he had like both your parents are your “onscreen parents” were there. So as the episodes go on I think that you really get to start to see the kids home life and just learn more about them.
Eddie Leavy: And again in later episodes as we sort of, you know, get on our feet a little more and we start appearing in different locations, you know, some of our favorite episodes I think to shoot when we were actually outside of the classroom. And sort of see what our characters were like, you know, outside of the classroom and sort of in a real world setting. So I think the best is yet to come in terms of character development and being able to sort of see more of our characters in different scenarios. So yes it’s a lot of fun stuff to come.
Interviewer: Do either of you have any really horrible teacher experiences in real life?
Sari Arambulo: I think I might. I still go to school so it’s super fresh for me to think of professors in my life. And I think one that sticks out to me is in – I also study Cinematic Art at USC and one of my professors was insane. He was just super, like, he’s great, like, this is the class that, like, everyone takes. But he is just super dramatic, kind of similar to Jack Griffin in that sense. Just, like, over the top, super dramatic. He like has an entrance when he comes into the classroom. And if you ever participate he’ll remember your name, like, it is a huge lecture hall. And he’ll remember your name and then continue throughout the course of, like, the months that you’re taking the class he’ll just continue calling on you even if you don’t know the answer he’ll just right on the moment just call on you. So it was definitely, like, a nerve-racking experience to be in his class which is kind of similar to Jack Griffin.
Eddie Leavy: Yes I actually have memories of getting a teacher. She was a substitute teacher but getting a substitute teacher fired once because she was so horrible. And she was verbally abusive of the kids in my class that we, like, honestly the kids rallied together and talked to our parents. And this was in I think middle school. And we rallied together and we, like, told our parents and we got her fired because she would just say the nastiest things to us. Called us idiots and dumb and, you know, give us horrible grades for no reason. So I’ve definitely had, you know an experience.
Interviewer: Is it easier for you to play a character who’s more closely aligned to you?
Eddie Leavy: Well yes I mean definitely. I mean Anthony definitely is probably a little more blunt and honest than I am in real life. But it’s definitely a lot of fun to feel, like, you see yourself in the character and to just bring it to life. And it just gives you a level of comfortability. Again we shot this show for 3 1/2 months. And I think we just got to know these characters so well and we were able to have a level of comfortability on set where we were able just to play, you know, every week we had a director but we were able to just play with the director and bounce off each other’s energy
Sari Arambulo: No, no not at all. Yes I just, like, want to bounce off that. I think that we really were so lucky and blessed to have these writers who really almost tailored the characters to our personalities and kind of got to see, like, they saw us as people. And they kind of translated that into our characters which is really great. Like for example all I really knew about Grace is that she was just sweet in the classroom, cute girl in the high school, like, in the Biology class. But then I guess as they started to know me they realized I was, like, super sweet and nice so they started playing upon that more which is really great. And then they really paid attention to our relationships as well, like as people with the cast members. Eddie I remember, like, we just hit it off right from the get go and I’m pretty sure the writers started to notice, like, we always wanted to be together sitting together. So then there was this one episode where they kind of just started – they gave us, like, this one moment in the house party episode that’s going to be coming up, but they just gave us this amazing moment where it was just us two. And you just kind of see our relationship and our friendship grow. So I just think that it’s so amazing just to see the writers really take advantage of the actors and like what we can bring to the table which is awesome.
Wrinkle in Time is one of the most visually beautiful films I’ve ever seen in my life and I have to say it was a film I was desperate for as a child. A girl being the hero! A girl of color with hair that looked like mine! A mother that looked like the women in my family! I have to say from the moment that Disney announced Ava DuVernay was directing her first major tentpole fantasy film I felt as if women directors especially black women directors were taking a few steps up the ladder. I must admit to some trepidation since I’d read the book as an angst ridden black teenager growing up in Iowa so had high expectations. It was one of the books I enjoyed as a shy kid in the back of the room with her head down often too quiet to make a ripple in my small town.
Ava has done a wonderful job translating the novel into a modern film that touched on bullying, not conforming, dealing with a ‘picture perfect’ life aka closed doors and just being a girl with all of those expectations all packed into a film that lasts 109 minutes.
This film is made for kids, is about kids and will excite them very much as they take the helm and save the universe. As an adult watching I didn’t have the connection I wanted until the kids ‘took charge’. Mrs. Which (Oprah Winfrey) is the all knowing celestial being with two sidekicks Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon) and Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling) who were the ‘adult interpreters’ that were the glue to explain the ‘why’ of ‘It’ aka the evil force called “the Black Thing” out to steal the positive life force of the universe and a little kidnapping.
Happily the film’s teen hero Meg Murry (Storm Reid) grew as the film progressed as she worked through her issues with the help of her little brother Charles Wallace (Deric McCabe) and Calvin (Levi Miller) are the trio stepping stones that allows Meg to finally accept herself and truly travel using the tesseract. They kept the action moving as they searched for Meg & Charles’ father (Chris Pine) while her long suffering mother (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) is at home in the dark (classic teen hero movies rule).
I enjoyed the film because (unlike some) I am not comparing it to Black Panther but instead it comes to mind a classic Disney film that has a deliberate pace as if it’s a tree with numerous branches welcoming the viewer to climb. It had little moments that sparks imagination from the sentient flowers, to Meg standing out by wearing her hair in natural curls, my heart broke when she was in the principals office and soared when she became the warrior the trio of mysterious women kept telling her was within. Really all the kids learned about themselves and their strengths/weaknesses in every world and it wasn’t shouted instead it was whispered in your ear.
I enjoyed the film and hope every parent who brings a child uses it as a jumping point to talk about respecting people who are different, to not be a bully and take your anger/misery out on others, that being smart is cool and really to embrace whatever you are good at.
It’s a film of empathy, imagination and the magic of science …. Ava made a film that makes you feel immersed in another world of magic and what makes a family. BTW it’s love ….
