'Midnight Mass' delivers Netflix a creepy horror series that's a bit too long winded


Created: Fri, 24 Sep 2021 13:50:25 GMT

Author:

As is often the case with such fare, "Midnight Mass" begins as a creepy, provocative horror yarn and finally can't deliver on its promise. Created by "The Haunting of Hill House's" Mike Flanagan, the Netflix series deserves praise for its distinctive ambitions and jolting surprises but too often plays like a long-winded sermon, frittering around the edges of its homily.

'Foundation' builds Isaac Asimov's novels into a confounding Apple TV+ series


Created: Fri, 24 Sep 2021 13:51:24 GMT

Author:

Apple TV+ makes one of the new TV season's biggest bets by turning writer/producer David S. Goyer loose on "Foundation," Isaac Asimov's sweeping and cerebral science fiction novels. The 10-episode first season looks appropriately epic but struggles to tame a centuries-spanning, complex plot that feels lost in space -- dazzling to look at and confounding to follow.

Early '90s TV is hitting the refresh button this fall, in the case of "The Wonder Years," delivering an impressive and ambitious ABC dramedy. Coming on the heels of Disney+'s "Doogie Howser, M.D." reboot, the two shows join the earlier "One Day at a Time" in proving it's possible to nostalgically recycle titles and still produce distinctive and captivating series.

'The Many Saints of Newark' is more than a 'Sopranos' origin story


Created: Tue, 21 Sep 2021 16:27:54 GMT

Author:

Fourteen years after "The Sopranos" ended in much-debated fashion, "The Many Saints of Newark" reopens that universe, wisely going back decades before those events. Yet what sounds like a Tony Soprano origin story really focuses on other characters, in a richly detailed movie filled with enough new material and callbacks to accommodate a limited series, which might have been the more interesting approach.

'Star Wars: Visions' brings George Lucas' galaxy full circle in striking anime shorts


Created: Tue, 21 Sep 2021 17:19:25 GMT

Author:

George Lucas freely discussed how director Akira Kurosawa's 1958 samurai classic "The Hidden Fortress" served as inspiration for "Star Wars," so seeing Japanese anime turned loose on the franchise nicely brings the relationship full circle. "Star Wars: Visions" consists of nine stand-alone shorts, with the best providing a fascinating wedding of that far-away galaxy to imagery and themes rooted in Kurosawa's films.

Author:

The stars outshine the movie in "The Eyes of Tammy Faye," a dazzling showcase for Jessica Chastain and Andrew Garfield as Tammy Faye and Jim Bakker in a dutiful, somewhat disjointed chronicle of how the televangelists amassed great wealth before his disgraced fall. While it's not a landslide vote, thanks to Chastain's disappearing act, "The Eyes" have it.

'Impeachment: American Crime Story' dissects the Clinton scandal with Monica Lewinsky's input


Created: Tue, 31 Aug 2021 16:31:55 GMT

Author:

The "American Crime Story" banner launched by O.J. Simpson's trial is an odd one for FX's "Impeachment," an otherwise engrossing, undeniably juicy limited series that puts the women front and center in the Bill Clinton impeachment scandal. Sarah Paulson's portrayal of Linda Tripp steals the show, but there's no shortage of remarkable work in a production that deserves an Emmy for its prosthetic makeup alone.
