Last night at Comic-Con, we saw four of this fall’s most hotly awaited new TV shows. Which one will be your new obsession, and which will be the next epic disaster? Out of four new shows, one was pretty much as good as we expected, two were blah... and one was a nice surprise. Here’s our spoiler-free rundown.
Last week, along with other members of the press, we were invited to Pixar to watch the studio's latest short, Lava, and the first hour of the new feature Inside Out. We were delighted with what we saw: an incredibly ambitious film that maintain's Pixar's emotional core while introducing us to some fascinating ideas.
Last night, we caught an early screening of the pilot of Syfy's new series 12 Monkeys. And while it's clearly based on Terry Gilliam's original film of the same name, it takes great pains to set itself apart. Here are our spoiler-free first impressions.
During Comic-Con last week, Disney offered a sneak peek at the pilot for the new TV series Star Wars: Rebels. And while we can't tell you much about the episode, we will say this in our spoiler-free first impressions: we're looking forward to spending more time in the animated Galactic Empire.
We've seen the sexy, sexy premiere of Ron D. Moore's time traveling romance series Outlander. And it was fantastic. We loved it so much. Here are our spoiler-free first impressions.
We saw the Gotham pilot last night at Comic-Con, along with a couple thousand other people. It was not as bad as we feared nor as good as we hoped. But Donal Logue flat-out killed the role of Harvey Bullock. He's so good, you'll wish Jim Gordon wasn't the main character.
On Friday night, BBC America screened the first episode of its upcoming series Intruders, starring John Simm, Mira Sorvino, and James Frain. It was bananas. Creepy bananas. Here are our spoiler-free first impressions.
It's preview night at Comic-Con, and DC showed the pilots for two of its upcoming new shows: Constantine and The Flash. And they were both good! Here are our spoiler-free first impressions.
Sometimes our first impressions are completely accurate, but sometimes we surprise ourselves. Today we want to know about a time you changed your mind.
We were always slightly excited for Tom Cruise's Groundhog Day-meets-Starship Troopers movie Edge of Tomorrow, but we had no idea it was this good! We've seen Edge of Tomorrow and it is spectacular fun. Here's our (practically spoiler-free) first impressions.
There's no way to prepare you for the insanity of Space Station 76. It's a comedy set in a mid-1970s version of the future that looks like Space: 1999. But it's also a surprisingly dark character study of people who are slowly falling apart, which owes a lot to The Ice Storm. Here's our nearly spoiler-free first…
Syfy's hottest new show in 2014 is the mysterious Arctic thriller Helix. And now we've seen the first episode, and we can honestly say this series could very well be the next Lost (before it went downhill). Here's our spoiler-free review of the pilot.
We've seen Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity and it is one of the best space films we have seen in ages. One part giant showcase of the cosmos and one part a deeply harrowing action thriller, Gravity is about to show Hollywood what a real white-knuckled audience looks like. And here is our spoiler-free first impression of the…
Soon, a dozen new TV shows will court your eyeballs. They'll present their fancy concepts, like "What if the whole population of the world was 100 horny teenagers?" And they'll trot out their beautiful, talented stars. But which show deserves your love? We watched five brand new pilots, and here are our impressions.
Imagine a G-rated Revenge of the Nerds with a Greek Week obstacle tournament as inventive as the tasks in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire... and you've got Monsters University. We were among the lucky few to catch an early screening of the latest Pixar movie, and here are our spoiler-free reactions.
We've seen the first three episodes of Syfy's biggest gamble to date, the half-futuristic neo-Western, half-MMO game Defiance. Was it worth the risk? Can Syfy resurrect the sci-Western without stepping in a big pile of "Firefly did it better?" Here are our first impressions.
Nine years ago, writer-director Shane Carruth left Sundance in awe with Primer, a time travel film that was simple in production but insanely complex in its plot. Primer took a basic set-up, a time machine, and managed to turn a low-budget film into one of the smartest, and also scientific jargon-filled movies in…
We've seen the new Doctor Who Christmas special that stars the dazzling new companion, Clara. What did we think? here is our entirely spoiler free review.
We've seen a large chunk of the new CG animated Mr. Peabody & Sherman movie — and surprise, it's actually not terrible. Ever since this movie was announced, we've been giving off nervous "please don't ruin my childhood" noises.
Barry Levinson's found footage horror movie The Bay uses every single camera we can think of to deliver the chills. From phone cameras to security cameras to underwater cameras, all of the various shaky shots come together to teach us that if we don't take care of this planet, mutant parasites will strip our bodies…
