"Under The Dome" Season Premiere Recap: The Death Of Logic (And Several Characters)


Mike Vogel Rachelle Lefevre

CBS’s Under the Dome returned on Monday night and if there’s one moral to take away from the season premiere is that no one is ever safe on TV. Ever. As always, spoilers below.

Under The Dome
The more things change, the more they stay the same under the dome.

In the very first week of Season 2, we lost Sheriff Linda Esquivel (Natalie Martinez), who was killed by an SUV – or at least that’s how it seemed until she reappeared later and spoke to Big Jim Rennie (Dean Norris), who interpreted her communication as a message from the dome. Another goner, Dodee (Jolene Purdy), also came back to haunt Big Jim.

Cory Monteith's final film McCanick is due to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 9th. In one of his final roles, Monteith plays Simon Weeks a drug addict and recently released prisoner. According to reports by MTV, Weeks is suspected of a murder he committed whilst in his teens, he is tracked down by two detectives: Eugene 'Mack' McCanick (David Morse) and Floyd Intrator (Mike Vogel).

The trailer suggests Monteith's character is likely innocent of the suspected crime. One character warns the irritable McCanick "he's done bad things but he is not a killer", whilst the detective retorts "you don't know him as well as you think." This could be a red herring in itself, but we shall have to wait and see!

Stephen King's 'Under The Dome' "Could Be Just What We've Needed"


Stephen King Aisha Hinds Mike Vogel Kevin Bacon Rachelle Lefevre

Stephen King's novel Under the Dome, adapted into a miniseries, aired yesterday (June 25, 2013) in the US and has been met with favourable reviews. The horror writer's 2009 novel had a huge audience of 13.1 million viewers and is likely to continue filming until September. Owing to its initial popularity, it is possible CBS could fund further episodes. 

The pilot episode introduces the audience to the bizarre Maine town of Chester's Mill, an area which is trapped in a bubble from which the residents cannot escape. With a healthy dose of a mysterious murder; a plane crash and many of the residents suffering convulsions it's definitely Stephen King's style. 

Under The Dome is CBS' latest attempt to compete with rival networks who offer such series as The Following and Revolution. The cast of Under the Dome may not match up to the likes of Kevin Bacon (in The Following) but Joanne Ostrow of the Denver Post comments on the suitability of mixing 'veteran actors and fresh new faces'.

CBS's The Dome Is Less Thriller And More Formula


Mike Vogel Rachelle Lefevre

The premise of CBS’s brand new Stephen King adaptation, Under the Dome, is a familiar one – take a group of people with clashing personalities and a whole lot of secrets, lock them up together and see what happens. What has happened so far is an okay pilot for what is going to be a summer mini-series, based on the eponymous 2009 King novel.

While the first hour of the horror/drama doesn’t really have a lot to offer in terms of plot, we’re willing to explain that away with the necessary exposition. What Under the Dome seems to offer (besides some thoroughly entertaining footage of a cow and several houses sliced in half) is a tale of middle class mediocrity breaking down under the threat of apocalyptic mayhem. And really, with the slew of zombie films, disaster films and various apocalyptic interpretations across all forms of media, we’ve seen quite a lot of that already. At some point the breakdown of society ceases to be an entertaining plot and becomes a cliché. What’s supposed to bring some flavor to the somewhat bland series is the weight of the secrets most of the characters are hiding.

In the first episode, we see the show’s immediate villain, “Barbi” (Mike Vogel) bury a body and try to get out of town – only to be stopped by the dome dropping, of course. He then goes on to make government jokes and disrupt the discussion, which doesn’t really go beyond the “Oh no, what do?” stage in the first episode. Still, most of the pilot’s flaws are typical of a first episode and Under the Dome might still build up to an exciting resolution by the end of the series. In case you feel like catching an episode or two, the show airs Monday at 10PM on CBS.

Stephen King Adaptation 'Under The Dome' Will Star Twilight's Rachelle Lefevre


Rachelle Lefevre Stephen King Steven Spielberg Dean Norris Aisha Hinds Mike Vogel

Rachelle Lefevre will be joining the new CBS sci-fi drama Under the Dome, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The Twilight star is pegged to play the role of Julia, an investigative reporter who has recently moved to Chetser’s Mill, from Chicago. Once there, she and the rest of Chester’s Mill’s inhabitants, finds herself dealing with the “post apocalyptic conditions” that arise when a “strange dome” encapsulates the entire town.

With the show based on Stephen King’s popular novel, Julia is the editor of the town’s local paper and her curiosity is sparked by the news that multiple deliveries of propane gas had been made to a local warehouse. The appearance of the dome has her confused, though the disappearance of her husband – the local doctor – has her even more concerned. The drama is due to be produced by CBS Television studios and was taken straight to series, in association with Steven Spielberg’s own Amblin Television. Working as executive producers on the show will be Neal Baer, Darryl Frank, Justin Falvey, Stacey Snider and Brian K Vaughan. The premiere episode of the series will also feature Lost’s Jack Bender as executive producer.

The cast will also include Dean Norris (Breaking Bad), Mike Vogel (Pan Am) and Aisha Hinds (True Blood). Her casting in Under the Dome marks a return to CBS for Lefevre, who previously worked with them on A Gifted Man. The show is scheduled to premiere on June 24, 2013.

Blue Valentine Review


Very Good
This portrait of a strained relationship is often difficult to watch, simply because it feels so real. Fortunately, the screenplay includes plenty of raw humanity, which gives us a chance to laugh and sigh as well.

Cindy (Williams) is clearly feeling strained in her marriage. Dean (Gosling) is a loving husband and a great dad to their lively daughter (Wladyka), but she can no longer cope with his lack of ambition as he settles for blue-collar work rather than developing his musical talent. A last-gasp weekend at a themed hotel isn't looking very promising either, but they make a real attempt to sort things out. Their issues go back to events before they even met, and it'll take a lot for Cindy to change her mind.

The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants Review


Good
Rising admirably above the bubble-gum genre norm, "TheSisterhood of the Traveling Pants" is a smart, charming, superblyacted summer-adventure matinee about four 17-year-old best friends separatedfor the first time but symbolically linked together by a pair of second-handjeans they share by mail.

Found to inexplicably fit each of them despite very differentbody types, the pants become a touchstone as they're sent from friend tofriend, giving each girl confidence, good luck or comfort from unexpectedhardship just when such encouragement is most needed.

Adapted from the first in a series of popular books byAnn Brashares, the movie has a foundation of coming-of-age cliches, butbuilds upon it beautifully with three-dimensional characters and honestangst, consternation and joy.

Alexis Bledel ("Gilmore Girls") plays shy, beautiful,lanky Lena, whose vacation in a stereotypical Greek fishing village comescomplete with a hunky local (Michael Rady) who rides a Vespa. This is "Sisterhood's"least creative storyline (it even has a "Romeo and Juliet" bent),but Bledel digs for emotional truth and finds it.

Grind Review


Zero

Think "Blue Crush" without water -- or awesome surfing footage, likable characters with real personalities, beautiful girls in bikinis or anything else worth watching -- and I guarantee whatever you have in mind is still better than "Grind."

A skateboarding road-trip flick that will bore real skateboarders silly (and I should know -- I've been one since the late '70s), it includes barely 10 minutes of badly-edited actual boarding, less than half of which features the main characters (no-name actors using obvious stunt doubles), who in the course of the movie perform only one trick (at the very end) that's beyond the abilities of any dedicated junior high school punk with a modicum of talent.

Built on the "Crush" story template, the rest of the movie's 100-minute run-time is spent following four witless, college-age pro-tour wannabes around the country as they stalk and hassle the current king of sponsored skateboarding (Jason London) to look at a videotape of their supposedly fancy footwork.
