The power of “The Watchers On The Wall” is that, after 38 episodes of being told again and again that good people are weak because of their codes, we are finally shown hope in the most unlikely of places.
Hello readers, and welcome to Dork Shelf’s recap of Orphan Black season 2, episode 8, “Variable and Full of Perturbation." Something strange happened this episode, and that strange thing was that this episode was kind of... bland and boring?
We talk to Canadian filmmaker Ingrid Veninger about her work on The Animal Project and how the film came together as a co-op sort of operation, how her casting process worked, how her personal experiences fit into a story about acting, and why the project was a fun and rewarding thing that she’ll probably never attempt again.
Edge of Tomorrow is easily one of the best high concept sci-fi blockbusters to come along in a while. It might not be a particularly original movie, but it’s a surprisingly creative one that delivers all of the necessary thrills and spills of good popcorn fodder along with some pretty clever writing and proof that Tom Cruise still has a bit of a gas left in the tank.
After spending some time away from the indie film scene making some high profile Hollywood blockbusters (and some admitted box office duds, none of which were really his fault), actor and director Jon Favreau has come back with a gleefully reinvigorated mojo in the form of Chef, a winning, inspirational, and pitch perfect comedy that feels personal and universal at the same time.
