'The Flash' Reveals Reverse-Flash Image

Tom Cavanagh raises the stakes in this promo image.

Story by Matt Cummings

Although CW's The Flash is on a Spring hiatus, fans have been treated to news aplenty, inclduing a spinoff. But the first-season story of the Scarlet Speedster isn't quite done, as fans await the final episodes, which will most likely deal with Barry Allen’s pursuit of time travel technology. As you know, this is the only way that his mother - who was killed in the opening episode - might be rescued. Standing in the way of that is Flash's nemesis Reverse-Flash, played by Tom Cavanagh, who also plays Barry's mentor Dr. Harrison Wells.

This relationship is about to get a severe test, as recent trailers show that Reverse Flash announces his appearance to none other than his own Star Labs staff. How this will affect Allen and TeamFlash is yet to be determined, but today we took one step closer to seeing the epic battle play out. CW has released a nearly full-body image of Reverse Flash that clearly shows his costume and how Wells' appearance is mostly masked by the helmet itself.

This isn't the first time we've seen the suit or Wells in it, but its appearance does confirm where Season 1 is hoping to plant its flag: this will be a battle between two equally-powered foes for nothing short of Barry's future (and his past). Earlier conflicts were handily won by Reverse Flash, but the youngster is improving his speed and street smarts, to the point that the two might now enjoy equal power. That should play itself out nicely as we approach the finale, as we also know he will face another round with Captain Cold as well as Mark Hamill reviving his role to play The Trickster.

But short of Batman or Superman arriving for a cameo, fans want to know how The Flash will fair against Wells, once the deception is made clear. It is also clear that this image renews a ton of questions about Reverse-Flash that we cover below.

For now, what do you think of Cavanagh sporting the Reverse Flash suit? After you're done commenting, read our next article, which deals with 5 BIG QUESTIONS WE HAVE ABOUT REVERSE FLASH.

The Flash returns to The CW on March 17th, 2015.

5 Big Questions We Have About Reverse Flash

The release of Reverse Flash's costume has us asking tough questions.

Story by Matt Cummings


With the first quality image arriving on Friday of Tom Cavanagh as The Reverse Flash, reaction has been generally positive about the general direction which the show is headed. But questions have lingered all season about the motives of Reverse Flash/Dr. Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh), all of which have bubbled back to the surface. With a lack of answers from CW, we dare to ask the 5 big questions about Reverse Flash and his future role.

1. Why is Wells helping Barry Allen?
For reasons unbeknownst to us, the idea of helping the one person who is your mortal enemy to improve seems like a frankly idiotic plan. And yet, that is exactly what Wells and his team at Star Labs has been doing for most of Season 1. With Barry continuing to improve, why is Wells pushing his young protege only to fight him later. Is he hoping for a real fight this time? It's a question that only the studio can answer, and they're keeping tight-lipped about it.

2. Was Reverse Flash involved in the murder of Barry's mother?
When new evidence surfaced about the murder (in the episode The Nuclear Man), it became clear that two speedsters were involved, one of whom was Barry Allen as an older man. The other figure was red-streaked but their blood could not be identified. If this is in fact not Reverse Flash, did he have anything to do with the murder? If not, will he become a friend to Flash in an effort to either exonerate his father, or join him in the future to battle the other foe?

3. Why has RF traveled back in time in the first place?
In the comics, Professor Zoom was eventually replaced by a time-traveling character simply named Zoom, whose name is Hunter Zoloman. His efforts to make Wally West a better hero sounds a lot like Wells' character in the CW show, as he's served as a mentor to Barry, first gifting him with running power, then making it stronger via the use of The Cosmic Treadmill. It's clear that Wells is using highly-advanced tech from the future, but it's still unknown why he's there in the first place. Does he have a working knowledge The Flash's missions and has thus been manipulating him? Combined with other pieces of evidence from most recent episodes, this is one likely scenario. But to what end?

4. How will Barry and TeamFlash deal with Wells once the game is up?
It's clear from the most recent trailer that some big poop is about to hit the perverbial fan when the sow returns on March 17th. How will Sisko Carlos Valdes) deal with learning that his boss is none other than the same person who might be involved in several acts of murder? The trailer clearly shows that Wells announces his true identity to Sisko, which could have long-term and damaging effects to the entire TeamFlash structure. Again, details are sketchy and anything is possible, but we're willing to color this one "Bad, Bad, Ugly Bad."

5. Is Wells truly Reverse Flash?
Could Wells be another speedster, such as Professor Zoom, a 25th Century Scientist who in the comics fought Barry during their Silver Age? True, articles have stated Cavanagh is in fact RF, but don't be surprised if a third player is about to enter the game who might have been ultimately responsible for the murder of Barry's mother. That character could own the blood splatter that Sisko (Detective West (Jamie Martin) found in Barry's old house.

Too Few Answers - Does It Matter?
In the end, the prospect of us learning these and other burning questions about Reverse Flash will no doubt bring about an interesting conclusion to Season 1. The Flash has become one of the best series on televsion, not only because of its commitment to its stories and characters, but in its ability to keep audiences guess and (most importantly) talking on social media as seek to crack the show's code. Whatever happens, The Flash is scheduled to return on Tuesday, March 17th.

Movie Review: Run All Night

Run All Night doesn't do much new, but it tells its story in the most effective manner possible.

Story by Matt Cummings

If there's one thing we recently love about Actor Liam Neeson, it's the one thing we also hate. Having re-established his career with the Taken series, Neeson has become the go-to guy for one-note action vehicles, starring in Non-Stop, A Walk Among the Tombstones, and many others. And therein lies the problem: too many of the same movies for too long has left audiences with Neeson Malaise, as if we have collectively recognized the need for him to move on to something else. Fortunately, Run All Night proves he still works in these vehicles, even if the pieces haven't changed much.

The aging assassin Jimmy Conlon (Neeson) has lived a life of deadly confrontations, amassing a body count that's made him a wanted man in New York City. But Detective Harding (Vincent D'Onofrio) can't seem to pin the litany of dead bodies on Conlon, thanks to his long-time friend Shawn Maguire (Ed Harris), who's rise to prosperity on Conlon's 'acheivements.' Jimmy's troubles also revolve around his estranged son Mike (Joel Kinnaman), who one night witnesses a murder by Shawn's son, prompting an assassination attempt that Jimmy prevents. This leaves Shawn's son dead and the father so enraged that he targets Mike, placing him and Jimmy in the crosshairs. Through a wild night of car chases, gun battles, and a showdown with the mercenary Pierce (Common), Jimmy and Mike must fight to stay alive, even though one of them won't return home.

Director Jaume Collet-Serra crafts a gritty, ugly film that makes you think twice about living in The Big Apple, with its unwieldy mix of crowded city streets, loud public transit, and colorful characters that most home-spun families would never touch. He gets the underbelly of New York like few directors can, moving around the city with interesting CGI that flies from location to location before landing near our characters or on a dirty street where extreme close-ups of a cyclone fence or some other story element is featured. He achieved the same marvel in Non-Stop, demonstrating for the first time how cell phone texts could be used as an effective plot device.

But Run is much more than pretty images; its heart is decidedly dark and tired, portraying its leads as those who've lost more than their souls can bear. From Neeson's disheveled look to Harris' seedy rise to power (now hoping to become a respectable businessman), everyone here has paid some price to get where they are, mirroring the real-life rabbit hole which some of us can never escape. Writer Brad Ingelsby wraps multiple layers of story around the central theme - that of the father vs. son - as the film ultimately lands towards a surprising conclusion. Run also is blessed with an honest-to-goodness antagonist for Neeson to chew up some scene. In Non-Stop, the baddies are revealed as something far less interesting; here, it's nothing short of Conlon's best friend. That plays out quite well, although other issues feel like more of the same.

Run's cast is well-stocked but mostly filled with one-off characters, from Bruce McGill playing Harris' right-hand man to D'Onofrio's Harding holding an obsessive desire to see Conlon imprisoned for his executions. We learn just enough about them to know their place but that's it; McGill in fact speaks no lines...at all. Then there's Common, who plays a sort of preppie assassin desperately wanting to be as badass as John Wick, whose character and motives are never explored. That makes his showdown with Conlon a little hard to appreciate, considering how events play out prior to the climax. But this is Harris' and Neeson's kickball game, and their chemistry is the best Neeson has had in this run. While Harris might be best known for his portrayal of John Glenn in The Right Stuff, he makes a terrific sympathetic badguy, honoring Hollywood's recent trend that doesn't seem to tire. Add Collet-Serra's unique staging to the story, and you have something old that feels more new than it has in awhile.

Kinnaman - known mostly for his role in The Killing with Mirelle Enos - does a serviceable job here, although his mumbling and chronically understated performances have always made me wanting more. His role here is clearly that of the hard-working family man caught in the middle of his father's violent past, with Neeson hoping to turn the page and XX wanting his father to just go away.

And while Neeson plays the elder assassin with a grim tiredness that comes through in every scene, it's that exact aura that some will find disheartening; for it's clear that we're nearing the end of this gentrified action run. In Run, we can see it most clearly in the stuntwork, which is obviously not him; his moves are too fluid, too dynamic, and conveniently hidden in shadows for us to believe. But Cinematographer Martin Ruhe does give us several great action set pieces including a chase with Conlon hunting down a cop car through the streets of New York. There's nothing new about them, but they're well-executed and therefore highly enjoyable. What also works is the bizarrely epic soundtrack by Junkie XL, which makes you wonder if Conlon is headed for battle against Orcs or The Klingons.

If my tone here suggests inner-conflict, you would be correct: while I liked much of Run All Night, I'm ready to see Neeson move on. He's hit the high point of this phase of his career, with a director who's produced his two best films in that time period. Even though Neeson has stated he will retire from the genre in two years, I won't hold my breath to see that statement become reality.

Bolstered by strong performances and a visually gritty style, Run All Night is easily one of Liam Neeson's best. It's too bad this one is about to be shellacked this week by Disney's Cinderella, if the lack of attendees at our screening is any indication of its potential box office success. Still, I encourage you to check out this little gem, and give a listen to Junkie XL's excellent soundtrack, even if it's a bit misplaced. If we are seeing the end of Neeson's strong run of action films, this one is surely a high point to end on.

Run All Night is Rated R for Rated R for strong violence, language including sexual references, and some drug use and has a runtime of 114 minutes.

Kevin Smith Hints at Mallrats Sequel

Director possibly heading back to the food court.

By Brandon Wolfe

Kevin Smith’s self-proclaimed “retirement” isn’t proving any more final than showbiz retirements ever do (Hackman and Connery notwithstanding). The polarizing director has a full dance card for the near future, as he plans to follow up his oddball Tusk by shooting the long-delayed Clerks III in May, his even-longer-delayed hockey miniseries Hit Somebody in the fall before going to work on his next two Canadian-themed, weed-fueled horror experiments, Moose Jaws (which is exactly what it sounds like) and Anti-Claus, early next year. But after he’s done with all of that, Smith dropped an intriguing hint on his Facebook page for what lies ahead.


It sounds like Smith is going to make a return trip to the mall for another installment of Mallrats, his critically savaged 1995 sophomoric sophomore effort. That film, which chronicled a day in the lives of Brodie Bruce (Jason Lee in the role that put him on the map) and T.S. Quint (Jeremy London) as they drown the sorrows of their misbegotten lovelives with a trip to their local capitalist stronghold, encountering an onslaught of hijinks, much of it perpetrated by Smith’s signature characters, Jay and Silent Bob.

Mallrats was a huge flop upon its release, and seemed to instantly extinguish Smith’s promising debut on the heels of Clerks, but it has become a bona fide cult classic in the years since. Smith returning to his old haunts doesn’t seem terribly promising overall, but the prospect of Jason Lee’s Brodie returning to his Orange Julius kingdom with some more grey in his hair is weirdly exciting. After all of Smith’s canuckleheaded nonsense, it’s nice that there’s something in his pipeline worth anticipating.

Andy Samberg To Host 2015 Emmy Awards Show

Find Out The 'Who' and 'Where'


Story by David Clark


Emmy Award winner Andy Samberg has been selected to host the 2015 Emmy Awards show at the Nokia Theatre (Los Angeles) in September. The national broadcast will be airing live on Fox. An interesting decision given that it will be in direct competition with the ever popular National Football League’s Sunday night game. If aired two weeks earlier, the awards show would not have had such stiff competition.

Programming aside, for the people at home who enjoy watching celebrities win trophies, this year's show should be entertaining. Samberg should be a solid selection to take the show back to the heights reached when hosted by individuals like Conan O’Brien and Neil Patrick Harris. A host is integral to maintaining the attention of the audience, and to command the ratings a network hopes to receive when backing this type of an event. Being able to stand center-stage and carry the attention of an audience is not something everyone can do.

Samberg is the type of well rounded individual that was born to be a host. His resume is loaded with awards and nominations for his writing, acting, singing, and producing. He has extensive experience in performing live under pressure from his time on Saturday Night Live. He has a great sense of what does and does not work when performing comedy because of his time as a writer. His comedic timing has been honed from years of starring in movies, performing live, and from acting on television. Simply put, he has already done almost everything a person can do in the entertainment industry except host an awards show.

Bruce Rosenblum, Chairman and CEO of the Television Academy, worded his opinion of Andy Samberg like this:
“It’s wonderfully fitting that we have Andy Samberg, an Emmy Award winner himself, as our host for this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards… Andy has excelled in all aspects of the television universe, both from behind and in front of the camera. His humor, insights, and charisma will be an exciting addition to our annual celebration of television's best and brightest."


While experience does not guarantee a hosts performance will be great, it is unlikely that Samberg's hosting will be compared to the poor jobs done by hosts like Bryant Gumbel (1996), David Pierce (1999), or even of the most recent hosting performance by the stiff Seth Meyers (2014).

The Emmy Awards show is still six months away but Samberg has already warned people to, "Buckle your seat belts, Emmy Viewers!" Until the Emmys, Samberg can be found working as a lead character and detective on the comedy show Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Naked Gun Reboot On It's Way

If you've seen Naked Gun - or The Naked Gun: From The Files Of Police Squad! to give its full title - you'll know that it's a comedic masterpiece that springboards off astonishing levels of silliness and random spoofery. Leslie Nielsen's Frank Drebin is a loveable buffoon for the ages, even when he's discussing his dicky prostrate. Do not, however, expect the Ed Helms-starring reboot to adopt exactly the same tack.

According to Naked Gun director/co-writer David Zucker, talking up Airplane!'s screening at Nashville's Wild West Comedy Festival, the new version will not attempt to hit the same spoofy sweet spot as the Zuckers and Jim Abrahams' 1988 comedy. "It won’t be like the Naked Gun that I did," Zucker revealed. "It may be good, but it won’t be that kind of movie. They’re going to use the title. They asked me if I wanted to produce. They’re nice people, but they don’t want to do that style of spoof that I do."

One departure from the Zucker model has already been announced, in the casting of established comedic actor Ed Helms. "[He's] very well known for three of the biggest comedies ever (The Hangover movies). I understand why Paramount is doing what they’re doing."

Zucker refused a producer role on the project, accepting that his vision and the studio's were unlikely to gel. "If my name was on it, I would be making all sorts of suggestions and trying to change it," he said, "and it would be frustrating".

Interesting stuff and grist to the mill for anyone worried that the new Naked Gun will run foul of the law of diminishing returns. Zucker's comments do run contrary to what new co-writer Robert Ben Garant's said about the movie at the beginning of last year, however. “We are trying to reinvent the world because that world was very Dragnet, but we’re trying to fit in 100 jokes a page,” he explained. “It’s going to be a lot of fun. We’re very much embracing the style."

What we do know for sure is that Garant and his Night At The Museum co-writer Thomas Lennon have written a script that will see Helms fill the clumsy gumshoes of Frank Drebin (no relation). More as we get it.
