TNT’s Epic Drama Falling Skies Wages Its Final Battle On Blu-Ray and DVD Feb. 2, 2016

Falling Skies: The Complete Fifth Season and Falling Skies: The Complete Series Debut with Hours of Exclusive Content, a Lapel Pin and Collector’s Coin

Growing up, television during the warmer months was a time to catch up on your favorite series. Reruns were everywhere. Then, we were bombarded with reality shows. Thankfully, though, TNT changed the game for everyone by introducing exciting new programs that would have us eagerly anticipating the summer. The network has produced hit after hit over the years, but for me this one was a stand-out. Here’s what you need to know about Falling Skies:

“Falling Skies – TNT’s epic alien-invasion saga from Amblin Television and executive producer Steven Spielberg – will land on Blu-ray™ and DVD Feb. 2 for the final time. All 10 action-packed episodes of Falling Skies: The Complete Fifth Season will be available as a two-disc Blu-ray™ release and a three-disc DVD set. The fifth season set features farewell interviews with the cast and crew, including Noah Wyle, Colin Cunningham, Doug Jones and more, as well as “A Look Back,” an exclusive group interview with Doug Jones, Colin Cunningham and Sarah Carter.

Falling Skies chronicles the extraordinary story about life and survival in the wake of a catastrophic alien invasion that leaves most of the world completely deliberated. Noah Wyle stars as college professor Tom Mason, who becomes an unlikely resistance leader following the alien attack. As season five opens, all breed of beast and mutant are running rampant on earth. The Espheni’s power core has been destroyed, and humans are now ready to fight on their terms. And after four years of being tortured, Tom and the 2nd Mass are filled with rage, ready to destroy the enemy in an all-out battle to determine the fate of Earth. Falling Skies: The Complete Fifth Season will be available for the suggested retail price of $49.99 on Blu-Ray and $39.99 on DVD.”

We watched Falling Skies from the premiere episode and never missed a week. For a television show, I was always impressed with the visual effects which were comparable to those of full-length feature films. Though, I admit that every season had at least one lull point for me in which things moved a bit slow, overall Falling Skies maintained a steady pace and nice balance between action and suspense. There were a few nods to alien invasion films of the past, but I suppose the saying ‘imitation is the sincerest form of flattery’ holds some truth.

Wyle portrays the everyman-turned-soldier Tom with the sort of passion you’d expect from a parent protecting his children. The supporting cast of recognizable character actors are suitably put through the wringer both physically and emotionally. But, if season five’s stand-out belongs to John Pope, played to psychotic perfection by Colin Cunningham. Pope is Tom’s antagonist from the very start, sometimes more so than the actual aliens. Fearing humanity is a mainstay of dystopian and apocalyptic stories, don’t you think? Throughout the series we witness Pope transform from bad to good and back again. Desperation and loss of hope allow Cunningham to shine in this role. I was actually disappointed with how quickly the writers wrapped up the final season, as I could have watched Pope’s journey continue longer.

Falling Skies is a top notch sci-fi adventure for all to enjoy!

Here are some clips from their WonderCon panel:

“Since premiering as basic cable’s #1 new series of 2011, Falling Skies has ranked as one of basic cable’s Top 15 original dramas with total viewers and key adult demos. In its fifth season, more than 12.6 million people tuned in to watch the first six episodes, and the show ranked among basic cable’s Top 5 programs with key adult and male demos.”

Falling Skies is executive-produced by Steven Spielberg and Amblin Television heads Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank, along with David Eick.

For fans looking to have the entire series in one complete set, the Falling Skies: The Complete Series 10-disc Blu-ray and 15-disc DVD box set will feature the entire 52-episode series run. In addition, the box set will package hours of bonus content including behind-the-scenes features, commentaries, character interviews and “Inside the Episodes,” plus WonderCon and Comic-Con 2014 panel features. Both the Blu-ray and DVD release of the complete series include a special collector’s coin on-pack, and the Blu-ray also features an exclusive lapel pin. Falling Skies: The Complete Series will be available for the suggested price of $139.99 on Blu-ray and $129.98 on DVD.

Press Release:

Steven Spielberg’s Critically Acclaimed Spy Thriller Starring Tom Hanks Arrives on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and Digital HD February 2, 2016

SYNOPSIS:   A dramatic thriller set against the backdrop of a series of historic events, “Bridge of Spies” tells the story of James Donovan (Tom Hanks), a Brooklyn lawyer who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on a near impossible mission to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot. High stakes and suspense power a story inspired by true events that capture the essence of a man who risked everything and vividly brings his personal journey to life.

CAST: Tom Hanks (Saving Mr. Banks, Philadelphia and Forrest Gump) as James Donovan, Mark Rylance (Wolf Hall, The Other Boleyn Girl) as Rudolf Abel, Amy Ryan (Birdman, Goosebumps) as Mary Donovan, Sebastian Koch (TV’s “Homeland,” The Danish Girl) as Wolfgang Vogel, Alan Alda as Thomas Watters (The Aviator, Crimes and Misdemeanors), Austin Stowell (Whiplash, TNT’s “Public Morals”), Mikhail Gorevoy (Die Another Day, BBC’s “Space Race”) as Ivan Schischkin and Will Rogers (A Good Marriage, The Bay) as Frederic Pryor.

PRODUCTS:                         Digital HD/SD, Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and On-Demand

BONUS:                                   A CASE OF THE COLD WAR: BRIDGE OF SPIES  – The story of James Donovan, Francis Gary Powers and Rudolf Abel encapsulates the Cold War era—a tense political climate shrouded in propaganda, espionage and the threat of nuclear war.  This piece explores the characters and the real-life people they’re based on, ordinary men in extraordinary circumstances. Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks share personal stories of the Cold War, describing how experiences from their youth were part of the attraction to the script, how this influenced the way they approached the film and why the history behind Bride Of Spies resonates across generations and is relevant in today’s political climate.

U-2 SPY PLANE: BEALE AIR FORCE BASE – Showcases spectacular footage shot at the Beale Air Force Base of the U-2 plane and the scene where Powers and other pilots are instructed about their spying mission, including a cameo appearance in the film by Francis Gary Powers son, Gary Powers Jr. and discussion with the Air Force liaison about the significance of the scene and why they got behind the film.

SPY SWAP: LOOKING BACK ON THE FINAL ACT – Steven Spielberg and his team stage the pivotal scene of the film at Glienicke Bridge, the very same location where the historic exchange of Soviet spy Rudolf Abel and U-2 spy plane pilot Francis Gary Powers took place. Gary Powers Jr. shares his memories of his father’s experience with voiceover recordings from Francis Gary Powers, as filmmakers and the cast recreate a page of Cold War history while filming in the presence of Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel 

BERLIN 1961: RECREATING THE DIVIDE – A mix of behind-the-scenes footage with iconic archival imagery transports viewers to another place and time as the filmmakers construct the Berlin Wall, envision what it was like to cross through Checkpoint Charlie, and recreate the divide. On set in Berlin just days after the 25th anniversary celebration of the fall of the Berlin Wall, a historian who lived through the experience describes what being there means to her. In Poland, where the Wall was recreated for the film, tanks, hundreds of extras and powerful sequences make the setting feel epic and surreal.

Choice Collectibles Print Review

December 23, 2015 by  
Filed under Collectibles, Comic Books, Everything Else

The folks at Choice Collectibles were kind enough to offer me a print to review, and I took them up on their generous offer. They dispatched to me a Limited Edition Lithograph Print called “Enforcers.” Although I could not find an artist credit on the print, I recognized the work of David Finch, and a quick Google search revealed that it was originally a cover variant for Avengers/Invaders #1 back in 2008.

Print 1

As a graphic artist and someone who has worked in printing in one shape or another for the past 16 years or so, I can say that the printing looks impeccable. The colors are sharp and clear (my photos do not do it justice). This matted print is going to look great hanging on the wall!

Print 2

Choice Collectibles did a great job of shipping the print to me. My only peeve was that the print (covered in a plastic sleeve) was actually taped to the cardboard insert that protected it. I ended up ripping the protective plastic sleeve a little bit getting the tape off.

Print 3

Choice Collectibles has been in business for over 18 years and have developed a close partnership with Marvel. They have prints from a lot of other fantastic brands, too, including DC, Disney, Hanna-Barbera, Warner Bros., etc. They also have some very cool Star Wars prints including some for The Force Awakens! Be sure to check them out.

Scene and Reviewed: Marvel’s Ant-Man

December 23, 2015 by  
Filed under Everything Else, Movies

Marvel really produced a winner with Ant-Man with great characters and great visuals. I enjoyed it a great deal. I was expecting more of a comedic caper movie, but it surprised me with how serious and dramatic it was at times.

Paul Rudd stars as the Scott Lang version of the character. After pulling off a Robin Hood-style heist and ending up in prison, he’s trying to put his life back together and stay connected with his daughter. I’ve always liked Paul Rudd as an actor, and I think he does a great job in this.

I wasn’t very enthusiastic about the decision to make Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) an older character, but I can see how it really works in this movie. The heart of this film involves two fathers and two daughters. Lang is trying to be the hero his daughter deserves while Hank is trying to reconnect with his daughter Hope (Evangeline Lilly). It all has a great deal of emotional resonance. It also manages to address the age-old comic book conundrum as to why some inventors in the Marvel Universe don’t make their technological creations more readily available.

The first half of the movie might seem to drag a bit as Scott goes through quite a lot of preparation and training, but the movie really picks up when Scott and crew go into action for the task for which Hank recruited him. The end sequence manages to bring all the supporting characters together in a cool way. Along the way we also get a fun fight with a guest-starring member of the Avengers (which, of course, builds up to Ant-Man’s inclusion in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War)!

Although this was a troubled production with original director Edgar Wright dropping out while the movie was in pre-production, Marvel really pulled it together and made it one of their best films. Since Marvel has been very genre-oriented of late and this movie was described as a heist movie, I’m really curious to see where they go with the already announced sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp. At any rate, we are sure to see more of Evangeline Lilly which is never a bad thing in my book.

Minor Caution for Parents: This movie does have some blatant profanity in it (as did Guardians of the Galaxy). As the parent of young kids myself, I really wish Marvel wouldn’t go this route and would instead keep it family-friendly.

SYNOPSIS:   The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe introduces the newest member of the Avengers: Marvel’s Ant-Man. Armed with the amazing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang joins forces with his new mentor Dr. Hank Pym to protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from ruthless villains! With humanity’s fate in the balance, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a daring heist against insurmountable odds. Filled with humor, awesome special effects and exclusive bonus features, this action-packed adventure takes you to new levels of pulse-pounding excitement!

CAST:    Paul Rudd (This is 40, Role Models) as Ant-Man/Scott Lang, Evangeline Lilly (The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Lost) as Hope van Dyne, Corey Stoll (This Is Where I Leave You, The Bourne Legacy) as Yellowjacket/Darren Cross, Bobby Cannavale (Spy, Chef) Michael Peña (Cesar Chavez, The Martian) Tip “T.I.” Harris (Identity Thief, Entourage),Wood Harris (Justified, The Wire), Judy Greer (Tomorrowland, 13 Going on 30), David Dastmalchian (The Dark Knight, Prisoners), as Paxton, and Michael Douglas (Last Vegas, The Game) as Dr. Hank Pym
