Showtime Executive Hints 'Dexter' Spin-Off Is A Possibility


Michael C. Hall Jennifer Carpenter Desmond Harrington David Zayas Julie Benz James Remar Showtime Aimee Garcia Yvonne Strahovski David Nevins

Dexter could potentially have a spin-off if hints by producer Showtime's entertainment president David Nevins are anything to go by.

Michael C. Hall
Michael C. Hall at Showtime's celebrations of 8 seasons of Dexter held at Milk Studios in L.A.

The series, now in its eighth and final season, follows Dexter Morgan a serial killer with a code of conduct. Dexter, working as a blood splatter analyst for Miami police, is able to kill those who break the code often taking police cases from them and dealing harshly with the perpetrators. After wrapping his victims (or criminals depending on how you view it) in cling film he stabs them through the heart, all the time narrating his bizarre logic.

‘Dexter’ Season 8 Premiere Recap – Missing Brains, Harry’s Code, A Stabbing And Substance Abuse. Dexter’s Back!


Jennifer Carpenter David Zayas James Remar Charlotte Rampling Lauren Velez Aimee Garcia Desmond Harrington Julie Benz Yvonne Strahovski

A quick re-cap of season 7: Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) now knows Dexter is a serial killer; Deb killed LaGuerta (Lauren Velez) and it was all very, very messy at the end of last season. But this is the last season, the last 12 episodes which will tie up the loose ends and we'll finally find out if Dexter will fly or fall. 

The episode is called 'A Beautiful Day' and in Dexter's world it most definitely is. It is six months on from La Guerta's death which has made sure Dexter's safe - for now. Everything is going well with Hannah McKay, Dexter's girlfriend and serial killer in arms. Dexter turns up, after romping around with Hannah for a while, to a bench dedication in honour of LaGuerta.

Punisher: War Zone Review


Terrible
As superheroes go, Frank Castle, also known as The Punisher, doesn't seem like the most worthy candidate to warrant three different movie adaptations in 20 years. His mission is vengeance, and his superpower is just a van full of guns. Someone like Spider-Man or Batman requires a rich yet relatable backstory, explaining the relationship between his fate- or self-given powers and how he chooses to use them. The Punisher's logline is comparably simple (bad guys killed his family; now he kills bad guys), and no one needs to explain where he got his van or guns (probably Wal-Mart).

To make this man interesting requires a certain amount of style and attention to detail, two of many qualities lacking in Punisher: War Zone, the newest Punisher... well, "adventure" sounds too frolicsome, so let's say "incident." Like The Incredible Hulk, Punisher: War Zone ignores but doesn't quite contradict the events of its immediate predecessor; it's not a direct sequel to 2004's The Punisher, but at least allows the previous film to take care of the origin business.

Rambo (2008) Review


OK
What do you do when Tinseltown no longer cares for your career, when your latest attempts at an artistic renaissance or cultural relevancy have failed miserably? Well, if you're one time box office king Sylvester Stallone, you cannibalize your past and hope that someone out there in film geek nation still cares. After 2006's Rocky Balboa proved that audiences could cotton to a self-referential return to former glory, a post-Planet Hollywood Stallone decided pissed off Vietnam Vet John Rambo was due for a comeback. Of course, the main question in everyone's mind was, after three previous installments of the mercenary and mayhem series, could the actor bring anything new to the show?

The answer is yes, and it's painted in glorious clots of deep, deep red. When a group of goody-two-shoes religious types get caught up in the middle of Burma's brutal civil war, a reluctant reverend (Ken Howard) seeks out soldier-turned-snake wrangler John Rambo for help. Seems he wants to send some paid "professionals" in to retrieve his flock, and since our hero guided the original tour into enemy territory, he's the best man to lead this latest incursion. Of course, when the hired help proves woefully egotistical, Rambo steps up to show them the proper way to kick bad guy butt. Besides, he has been "spiritually" touched by the sole female member, an idealist named Sarah (Julie Benz). He must then break into a heavily-guarded compound and save her and her friends before a corrupt local General throws them to his collection of flesh-eating pigs, among other inhuman tortures.

Jawbreaker Review


Terrible
Try as we will to forget, we all remember middle school. We all remember how much our own life felt like it resembled Welcome to the Dollhouse. We remember the insults. We remember the fights. We remember being the spectator to a catfight.

Watching Jawbreaker, in that respect, could be called a nostalgia film.

Shriek If You Know What I Did Last Friday the 13th Review


Terrible
At what point do self-awareness and flip irony double back and smack themselves in the face? The straight-to-cable Shriek If You Know What I Did Last Friday the 13th (it originally aired on USA Networks) is supposedly a parody of the teen horror genre, but considering the self-aware mockery of Scream, this film actually attempts to parody a parody. That is a daunting, thankless task which would require master parodists to pull it off. The makers of Shriek... are not those people.

Shriek's plot, as it were, is a stew of those from Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer, centering around five students trying to avoid The Killer, a mysterious bungler in that now omnipresent Edvard Munch "The Scream" mask who knows embarrassing secrets about each of the students, including the fact that one student forgot to give her grandmother her laxative. Ha ha!

The Brothers Review


Terrible

"You know fellas, I've realized something here tonight. Maybe women aren't the problem. Maybe it's us."

With dialogue that insipid, do you really need to know anything more about "The Brothers" before running as fast as you can away from the movie theater?

An ironically misogynistic, "Waiting to Exhale"-style talker disguised as a male-oriented buddy picture, "The Brothers" is the latest in a string of predictable films about yuppie African-American guys in Hugo Boss suits slowing getting it through their thick skulls that maybe being a player isn't what life's all about. (Think "The Wood," "The Best Man.")

Jawbreaker Review


Zero

Like the recent teen flick mishap "She'sAll That," "Jawbreaker" is anotherone of those high school movies that presumes a nerd's wildest dream isbe to become shallow and popular, and that said nerd would do just aboutanything -- even become an accessory to murder -- to see that dream cometrue.

The premise here is that when a SoCal teen wallflower (JudyEvans Greer) stumbles on the campus vanity princess squad covering up theiraccidental murder of another popular girl, the cold-blooded triad buy hersilence with a make-over and an introduction into their clique.
