Orphan Black S03E07 – Community of Dreadful Fear and Hate

  Orphan Black continued its fantastic run last night on Space, giving us what may be the lightest episode to date, while still advancing the characters and storyline and ending with a painfully heartbreaking moment for Cosima (Tatiana Maslany). It’s a great episode that gives us almost time to catch our breath before plunging into the…

Orphan Black S03E06 – Certain Agony of the Battlefield

  Wow what a kick in the gut last night’s episode of Orphan Black was huh? The emotional punches and revelations just kept coming, and constantly stunned me over and over… Sarah (Tatiana Maslany) still being held in Dr. Coady’s (Kyra Harper) compound (which Mrs. S (Maria Doyle Kennedy) has learned is in Mexico) and…

War of the Worlds (2005) – Steven Spielberg 

  I dive back into more HG Wells cinematic adaptations with the Sci-Fi Chronicles book, settling in to rewatch the Spielberg take on the classic invasion tale, done so well in the previously reviewed 1953 film. Spielberg’s updated take on the story is a modern, post 9/11 version which tries to walk the line, mostly successfully between modern sensibilities…

Orphan Black S03E03 – Formalized, Complex and Costly

  Orphan Black continues to wow, as episode 3 roared across screens last night on Space. The series continues to be filled with amazing character beats, that continue to layer them, expand them, and plunge them into new directions. Art (Kevin Hanchard) is still haunted by Beth’s (Tatiana Maslany) death, and his inability to do…

Bitten Season 2

And this show, has not been resting on its haunches. The season wastes no time, delving into lycanthrope politics, sexiness and Elena’s (Laura Vandervoort) vengeance. Right from the off,…

Delivery: The Beast Within (2013) – Brian Netto

  Releasing today on DVD from Anchor Bay is a nice take on the found footage film, combining reality television with a hint of Rosemary’s Baby, and a touch of Paranormal Activity. Rachel (Laurel Vail) and Kyle (Danny Barclay) after years of trying, are finally expecting. And they’re also the subject of a new reality show…

Orphan Black S02E05 – Ipsa Scientia Potestas

In an interesting, and highly enjoyable episode, we get to spend more time with Helena (Tatiana Maslany) this week, as the clones react to the pressure that Rachel is starting to exert on Cosima, to bring Sarah to heel, and of course, turn over little Kira (Skyler Wexler). Speaking of Kira, in her moments with…

Orphan Black S04E04 – Governed As It Were By Chance

Tonight on Space, Sarah (Tatiana Maslany) decides to take the fight to Rachel. And who can blame her after the way the last episode ended with the car she and Daniel (Matthew Bennett) are in got totalled?! This week picks up right from that moment, and doesn’t let up for the entire run of the episode….

Orphan Black S02E01 – Nature Under Constraint And Vexed

  Black is back! Tonight! On Space!! Thank goodness, because that wait seemed interminable. And it leaps right back into things in this episode penned by Graeme Manson. Sarah (Tatiana Maslany) is desperate to find Kira (Skyler Wexler) and take on whomever abducted her little girl. Fleeing Mrs. S’s (Maria Doyle Kennedy) home, it’s not long before…
