    Hercules Says AMC’s New Western Series HELL ON WHEELS Is One Of Autumn’s Biggest Disappointments!!
    Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news.

    AMC’s “Hell On Wheels” is one of the season’s bigger disappointments, a Western mostly about a former Confederate soldier plotting vengeance for the rape and murder of his wife – even as he supervises former slaves building the Union Pacific transcontinental railroad.

    It comes to us from brothers Joe and Tony Gayton, who scripted the 2010 Dwayne Johnson vehicle “Faster” (27% positive reviews among top critics on Rotten Tomatoes!). It stars Anson Mount (“Line of Fire,” “Straw Dogs”), Colm Meaney (“Deep Space Nine,” “Get Him To The Greek”), Common (“Terminator Salvation”), Dominique McElligott (“The Philanthropist”) and Ted Levine (“Silence of the Lambs,” “Monk”).

    “Wheels” is one of the least politically correct series on American TV. The native Americans are introduced as perfectly despicable bloodthirsty savages, the term “******” finds its way into a lot of dialogue, and there’s even a curse word in the show’s title.

    The best thing about its first episode is a harrowing Indian attack. The project struggles, though, almost everywhere else, offering bland characters, clumsy dialogue and plotting that holds few surprises.

    Its titles are almost desperately evocative of HBO’s much better “Deadwood.”

    (It’s slightly interesting to note that AMC sort of got into the original-drama game in the “Deadwood” era with the 2006 Robert Duvall miniseries “Broken Trail.” Duvall told Howard Stern at the time that he hated “Deadwood,” whose pilot was directed by Walter Hill – the same guy who directed the “Broken Trail.”)

    Not really sure how I feel about Hell On Wheels. Felt like there could have been so much more there. I will give it another week to see.

    Yeah, it was a bit of a letdown.

    How To Make A Monster, Baby! A Behind-the-Scenes Look at The Walking Dead Zombie Make-Up | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central

    We stumbled upon a cool post today that we just had to share with you. Have you ever wondered what goes into the creation of a zombie from "The Walking Dead"? Take a look at a step-by-step pictorial that shows actor Kevin Galbraith going from a regular handsome guy to a flesh-craving zombie.
    Good episode last night, and if you saw the teaser for next week...SPOILERS...somebody is coming back. Before you all get too comfy thinking that the show is just as good, remember, we will not know until after the hiatus(in 3 more weeks?) what the show will look like post-Darabont.

    Finally watched Hell on Wheels. Hmmm, sort of a misfire ain't it? The biggest complaint is that there is nothing SPECIAL about this show that says it belongs in the same company of AMC/Fx's other great shows. As a matter of fact, outside of a few clumsy bits of violence, it could very well be on one of the major networks. It looks a little stage-y too, which is disappointing. It's full of stock characters doing stock things in a stock plot. I think Common is likeable enough as an actor but he ain't no Denzel(in GLORY). The lead is ok...not given much to do. I think your enjoyment of this depends on how you feel about watching Colm Meany channel Jon Lovitz's Master Thespian( I'M ACTING!!!!!!!). Me, not a big fan. I'll give it another try tonight and maybe even next week but I need to see a little something to justify keeping this on a busy dvr.

    Thunderstruck Bringing UFOs to AMC | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central

    It appears to lean more toward the sci-fi side of the fence than pure horror, but considering its pedigree, which includes the team who wrote and directed The Exorcism of Emily Rose, we'd be remiss if we didn't mention AMC's acquisition of "Thunderstruck", a new series about powerful and enigmatic alien entities that begin appearing all over the world.

    Deadline tells us that "Thunderstruck" is an hour-long UFO project from feature writing/directing duo Paul Boardman and Scott Derrickson (the aforementioned Emily Rose) and former "Battlestar Galactica" executive producer David Eick. Boardman and Derrickson will write the drama, Boardman and Derrickson will executive produce with Eick, and Derrickson is set to direct.

    As for those "entities", after one shows up in the town of Great Falls, Montana, the local citizens must grapple with the dramatic effects and growing mystery of repeated visitations.
    Ok, I'm listening...

    Anybody else sick of the "search for Sophia" theme in Walking Dead? What is it, 4 episodes now? Come on people, get on with it.
