Netflix Renews ‘Black Mirror’ For Season 5

It’s hard to believe that at one point, “Black Mirror” might have ended after only two seasons. Way back in 2013, after the second season finished its run on Britain’s Channel 4, there was no renewal set for a third season, or “series” if you’re from that side of the Atlantic. It wasn’t until Netflix showed […]

Forget everything you just heard, and go back to sleep… On this episode of Adjust Your Tracking, Joe and I get back on mic after a two-week break, and we run into the damn apocalypse of all things. Hate it when that happens. Mostly, though, we’re catching up on past titles (including, briefly, the year’s most ironically […]

Explaining Hollywood’s ’80s Obsession

Hollywood is currently in a nostalgic mood for the 1980s (with the 1990s creeping up not far behind). It’s the decade where consumers first experienced music videos, rented VHS tapes, and blockbusters became of a summer staple. But, what’s driving this obsession in Hollywood for the neon lit era?

Friday night the American Cinema Editors awarded their year-end awards and Saturday night the Art Directors Guild had their say.  “The Shape of Water,” “Logan” and “Blade Runner 2049” were the big film winners at the ADG Awards making the former and the later the presumptive frontrunners for the Best Production Design Oscar.  While not […]

‘Black Mirror’ Season 4 Is Consistently Challenging & Original [Review]

The first season (the first episode, to be more precise about it) of “Black Mirror” blew my mind. It was a display of risky, ambitious filmmaking the likes of which I hadn’t previously seen on television. “The National Anthem” remains one of my favorite TV episodes of all time, while other first season entries “Fifteen […]

Netflix has been playing a coy game with the upcoming fourth season of Charlie Brooker‘s anxiety-inducing “Black Mirror,” releasing trailer after trailer and posters for each episode and yet hiding the release date.

Paramount is probably wondering where all this “Star Trek” love was when “Star Trek: Beyond” was released last year. Not only is Quentin Tarantino developing his own “Star Trek” movie, but “Black Mirror” is offering its skewed take on the beloved sci-fi series with “U.S.S. Callister.” Directed by Toby Haynes, and starring Jesse Plemons, Cristin […]
