Superhero Movie

This one changes everything.

With The Winter Soldier, Marvel Studios is smack in the middle of “Phase II”–and continues to gain momentum. This new Captain America adventure is a conspiracy/action/thriller while remaining a superhero movie and it excels on all counts as it rockets through to the end. Every time you think you know what’s happening, another twist sneaks up on you so fast that you’ll develop whiplash.

There are broad sweeping themes here about the role of government in our lives–what is freedom and what is simply fear? At the same time, Steve Rogers (Captain America), now fully integrated as a S.H.I.E.L.D. operative, continues his character arc from The Avengers, no longer blindly willing to take orders, striving to do what’s right. He’s tired of deception and lies, of being kept in the dark for his own good.

The clock is ticking as S.H.I.E.L.D. is trying to get Project Insight up and running, a modern-day version of the Strategic Defense Initiative (aka Star Wars). A mysterious assassin is drifting in and out of events, known only as the Winter Soldier, creating havoc at the worst possible times. Through it all, there is mystery and confusion. The movie is structured like an onion: as one layer is peeled, the next question comes to light. Captain America moves through the movie like a tall, athletic Hercule Poirot, putting together bits of the clues and conducting interrogations. Until, finally, the answer is revealed.

A Ken Burns Documentary

Award-winning documentary filmmaker Ken Burns, whose youthful looks and apparently inexhaustible energy belie his actual age, has six projects in the pipeline. As he explains, it wasn’t an overabundance of spare time that led him to make THE ADDRESS, but rather passion for the subject matter. The film, which premieres on PBS Tuesday, April 15, deals with Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, and follows a group of students as they attempt to memorize the relatively brief but enduring speech.

Orphan Black:

Five Reasons Why You Need To Stop Everything and Watch this Show!

icon icon

You’ve heard of Orphan Black, right? If you haven’t, then it’s either because you’re living in a black hole, or because it’s something worth keeping secret and protected before it gets whisked off into the mainstream. Orphan Black is undoubtedly being hailed as one of the best science fiction television shows on TV–and can certainly sit in the same room with some of the Big Greats in sci-fi’s past. What follows are five reasons you need to watch this–now!

1. Original Premise: At least in the way of television shows, Orphan Black has a killer premise. The show begins with Sarah Manning, a drifter, punk, thief, looking to reconnect with the child she gave up. In the opening sequence, Sarah is waiting on a train terminal when a woman throws herself onto the tracks before an oncoming train. Right before jumping, the woman (Beth), turns to Sarah, revealing an identical face. Sarah steals the woman’s bag, and later her identity, stepping into a strange and threatening situation as she begins to encounter other identical copies of herself–aka, clones–all being hunted.
