Powers is a cheesy action romp, but I'll still watch it

Mar 09 // Chris Carter
Described as an "edgy, dramatic series" (I'm a sucker for drama, not so much for the edge if it has to be advertised), Powers focuses on two detectives that investigate crimes of a super-powered nature. The show is going for a Hancock-vibe, where those with powers may not have a propensity for being heroic and are a bit more nuanced. Or in some cases, downright criminal. On paper, Powers has a rather impressive cast. It's not front-loaded with Hollywood stars, but pretty much everyone involved has a long history in TV.  That said, lead actor Sharlto Copley is no stranger to the big screen -- just look no further than his meek role in District 9 as Wikus, or his domineering turn as Agent Kruger in Elysium. The supporting cast is also fairly impressive, boasting the always great Eddie Izzard as one of Copley's mysterious old associates, or Noah Taylor as chain-smoking teleporter Johnny Royalle. The production pedigree is also enticing, with comic writers Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming at the helm. Copley plays the role of Christian Walker, a superhero-turned-detective formerly known as "Diamond" who now works to bring down those with abilities who break the law. Much of the narrative is hinged on Walker's struggle to cope with having a normal life due to the loss of his powers, and with Copley's effortless charm, this gimmick mostly works. He has the beginnings of chemistry with partner Deena Pilgrim (Susan Heyward), but I'm far from sold on the longevity of their relationship. Walker kind of just accepts his new younger partner right off the bat, partially through pure apathy. There's no annoying "you don't understand, rookie" hurdle to cross, but there's also a strong lack of emotional attachment both on and off the screen.  Because of this though there's a distinct lack of a dynamic between them, and any and all conflict stems from Walker's own personal struggle. [embed]288658:57639:0[/embed] Powers may be super, but it does operate under the framework of a police procedural -- though it is thankfully shying away from "villain of the week" for now. Noah Taylor is interesting as chain-smoking teleporter Johnny Royalle, and Izzard's character is central to the overarching plot as well as Walker's hero's journey. As most avid TV-watchers know, dramas often have an underlying hook to keep viewers interested week to week, and the producers have attempted to do that with Calista, played by Olesya Rulin. As a "wannabe" who thinks she has latent powers, she's stuck between a rock and a hard place with Walker and Royalle, who try to bend her to each of their wills. Copley's character, ultimately, is my hook. Elsewhere in the show though the lore is worth exploring, like the origin of certain character's powers, and the possibility of learning how said powers are granted or "discovered" in the first place.With the source material running for so long, there's plenty of storylines to draw from. On a macro-level, Powers is also in part a commentary on the current era we live in, from millennial entitlement to the lack of privacy facilitated by the age of handheld technology. Walker notes that "back in his day" growing up with powers, his friends would go on patrol and strive to "be something." Driving through a youth gathering in the present day, he sees them partying and laments the new generation. It's all fairly trite and not particularly "new" given how other programs do it better. The only benefit is the occasional amusing "TMZ-esque" vignette from guest stars like Mario Lopez. While I'm not a fan of the phrase "edge," there is a fair bit of violence, swearing, and sex to elevate it above what would normally be considered acceptable on network TV -- so giving it a home on the PSN is a smart move. On a technical level the effects are practical, and never really border on the level of cheese that the soap-opera drama sometimes achieves. Royale's teleportation effect is clean and amusing (complete with a signature "pop" sound), and there's some impressive CG aerial work.  The balance of effects is spot-on as Powers is not keen to overdo it, but gives you enough of a spark to keep you interested. Each episode is roughly 45 minutes in length, and at that runtime it has a propensity to overstay its welcome if it ends up giving us filler -- though I think we're safe for now. Aging fans of Heroes will have plenty to enjoy with Powers, as they're already used to plenty of soap-storylines. While I wouldn't necessary run out to recommend it to the general public, I will be watching it week to week to see where Copley's character ends up. You can stream the first episode here on March 10, purchase it on the PlayStation Store as each episode debuts, or if you have PlayStation Plus, you'll get it for free as it airs.

Casting The Legend of Zelda: A Netflix television series

Feb 06 // Kyle MacGregor
Ryan Gosling as Link Gosling is the perfect leading man. He's a total crowd-pleaser, blonde, handsome, and already has the silent protagonist thing down pat. Did you see Drive? It was great. Gosling stood around looking pretty for about 100 minutes and hardly said a word. What more could you want in a Link? Willem Dafoe as Ganondorf Dafoe is a fan favorite around these parts, and I'm clearly not above pandering to my audience. Just think of the potential for cross-promotion with the Dafoeverse. Think of the possibilities! He's also a skilled actor, you know, one adept at playing the villain. It's truly a match made in heaven. Aubrey Plaza as Zelda Good lord, this needs to happen. Plaza is just the best. She's not going to allow herself to be damseled either. She's liable to lock Gosling in a broom closet somewhere before proceeding to gallivant around Hyrule, rolling her eyes and spewing deadpan, sarcastic one-liners all the way. Horse as Epona Look, we're already over budget and it's not like Mister Ed (or more updated reference) is going to add all that much to the production. Any old horse will do. I'd even be okay with a pony. Morgan Freeman as Navi (or other sidekick) Okay, let's take that cash we skimped on Epona and splurge on Link's sidekick. Since it's probably going to be something supernatural, we're really only looking for voice talent. This makes Morgan Freeman is the only logical choice. Let's put it this way: If the man can send shivers down my spine by saying "More people go with Visa," then just imagine what he can do with "Hey! Listen!"

Dream cast: I want these actors for Netflix's live-action Legend of Zelda

Feb 06 // Steven Hansen
Kristen Stewart as Zelda  I'm leading with a bit of a dark horse here, but I think Kristen Stewart would be great as the series' titular lead, Zelda. With the show being more narrative-based than the games, acting chops outweigh nailing a look. Stewart has evinced the former post Twilight (and, really, before Twilight too) despite her internet meme status as stone-faced. Seriously, check out the Clouds of Sils Maria trailer. As an added bonus, if Stewart does carry residual clout with teens because of Twilight, that could help sell this show to the zeitgeisty audience Netflix is obviously going after with irresponsible Game of Thrones comparisons. Runner-up: Carey Mulligan. The Drive actor is a safer, more conventional choice for Zelda with her blonde pixie cut and soft features.  Charlize Theron as The Princess Assuming the show goes tried-and-true with the "Zelda has to save the princess" narrative because TV is rarely challenging, I at least want the actor that plays the Princess to be more than just a pretty face to save. I know Theron doesn't do a lot of television, but, hey, this is a dream cast, right? She has a fire in her eyes capable of elevating her above a boring damsel in distress, even if the script is bunk and tries to write her as thus. Oh, and can we give her a name, please?  Runner-up: Liv Tyler. Remember her in Lords of the Rings? There you go. Danny DeVito as Tingle DeVito's made a career out of being a small, impish weirdo (also a good producer and a pretty good director), so, yes, it's low-hanging fruit, but I'll take a bite. Plus, DeVito's been deep into the television game since Always Sunny. At least I didn't go for the dwarf from Game of Thrones. That would have been too easy. I did just spoil my runner up, though, so now I need a new one.  Runner-up: Mickey Rooney. Yes, he just died. Dream cast! Or, slightly more realistically, Capcom's Yoshinori Ono. Oscar Isaac as Ganondorf It was tempting to go Tim Conway for a Dorf on the Diamond joke, but I want to be serious about this cast list so if I nail it I can sue Netflix for royalties. Watch the trailer for A Most Violent Year and tell me you don't get chills. Isaac is finally getting his due as a hot as fuck, but also extremely talented actor (Inside Llewyn Davis, Drive) with appearances in the upcoming Star Wars and X-Men franchises, so I almost want him to cool off with the "young adult fantasy" roles, but no doubt that strong chin slathered in face paint could make for an intense Ganondorf.  Runner-up: Idris Elba. Uhm. Speaking of the literally hottest fucking person on the planet. The Wire's Stringer Bell has gotten a bit more big budget American play with supporting roles in Thor, Pacific Rim, and Prometheus, but god dang does he need some starring roles. Even him as a villain isn't enough. He better be the next James Bond.  They both get pictures because I made the Isaac one first but need an excuse to stare at Idris Elba pictures for a half hour. Rinko Kikuchi as Tetra Now's the time when I remember we have little idea what characters, if any, from Zelda lore will be making an appearance in this possible new TV show that probably won't happen. Now is also the time my dream cast casts its line seaward and I double down on the idea it be a Wind Waker show, because Wind Waker is the best Legend of Zelda. Runner-up: No one. Rinko Kikuchi. Make it happen, Netflix. Roberto Benigni as Linebeck Yes, it's a Wind Waker show, but a show is a show, and a show needs a few more defined supporting characters. Linebeck fits into the nautical journey. And, really, this is some acecasting. I've kind of impressed myself with it. Watch him as a taxi driver in Night on Earth and tell me that isn't a good choice. Runner-up: Al Pacino.  Kang-ho Song as Happy Mask Salesman The actor who sold me on Korean cinema a seeming lifetime ago (The Host; The Good, The Bad and The Weird; Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance) while I shuffled my feet and worked my way up to Old Boy, Kang-ho Song recently showed up in Snowpiercer as an oddball. I think he has Happy Mask range.  - Who do you want to see in the show?

Review: Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect: Episode One

Feb 03 // Chris Carter
Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect: Episode One (iOS [reviewed], PC)Developer: Orpheus Interactive, Silverback GamesPublisher: Fox Digital EntertainmentReleased: January 29, 2015 (iOS) / TBA (PC)MSRP: $2.99 per episode ($14.99 Season Pass) Plain and simple, this is a Telltale-style affair complete with item-based seek-and-finds, player choice, and a ton of dialogue. In other words, there's little room for exploration as you hop from one tiny child-sized sandbox to another -- otherwise known as the new school adventure genre. As a grizzled veteran who has spent hours pixel hunting in Myst and King's Quest, I'm generally okay with the push towards more visual novel and less adventure. Some of you may not be. The Prospect kicks things off with a rather interesting flash forward, giving the player character a choice to execute someone else with a bag over their head. Who is this hooded person? Are you even in control of the "main" character, or are you in the hood, and are you deciding to pull the trigger on yourself? It's a neat method of storytelling and likely won't be explored until the finale. [embed]287005:57140:0[/embed]The core narrative however will be spent setting things up for the rest of the tale. You'll meet the main character, whose Dad is terminally ill and could go at any moment. His brother happens to be part of the notorious Sons of Anarchy motorcycle club (this time called SAMLIN, based in Oregon), and his father thinks that he's been saving up to send his favorite son to college -- only, you've been spending that cash to keep the lights on, and keep him alive. Methods to earn unscrupulous cash are literally knocking at the door. Over the course of the show we've seen many unlikely people become members of the club, and it's interesting to see it unfold from their eyes. Your landlord, the local police, your dad, and of course the Sons play a vital role in your character's future, and the hook actually isn't bad. There's also some loose ties to the show with fan-favorite character Tig Trager, also played by Kim Coates, who makes a decent impression and not just a cameo. Thematically the dialogue is also very similar to the show, which is fine by me, but may offend others. In other words, the dialogue is very male-driven, and you'll likely find plenty of sexist and racist lines in the first 15 minutes. But while the setup is great on paper, the actual follow-through isn't so exciting. Visually the game looks similar to something Telltale would create, but with less emphasis on character design and world building. It just feels off and uninspired at points, like development was straight-up rushed. The motorcycle portions are probably this biggest offender, all of which feature the same dark highway. Choices aren't that prevalent either, so the visual novel comparison couldn't be more apt. You basically get a few options to shoot people or not, and that's about it. There are "relationship" counters of sorts where if you say something mean an icon will pop up with a "minus" symbol, or a heart symbol for something favorable. There's no indication that these actually mean anything or will matter later on. This initial episode will run you $1.99, and the season pass costs $15, which will net you all 10 episodes. This is a rough prospect, because although I am supportive of the episodic format, I'm generally in for four or five -- ten is way too many, to the point where a mere hour is very difficult to really drive anything meaningful home. Even the show started running hour and a half episodes eventually. Maybe this will turn out great over time with the planned PC version as a bundle, but the jury is still out. Even with its faults, The Prospect really isn't as bad as it looks. The cheap fan service of Tig (one of my favorites) drew me in, and the idea of slowly working your way into the Sons of Anarchy is fun enough. Since there are going to be so many episodes, I'll likely do a check-in at the halfway point and again at the end. [This review is based on a retail build of the game purchased by the reviewer.]

Sling TV, which brings live TV to Xbox One, is looking great so far

Jan 28 // Chris Carter
Although it's not quite ready for launch just yet, I had a chance to test out Sling TV on both the iOS and Roku 3 platforms, as the Amazon and Xbox apps aren't currently available. The idea is to help facilitate cord-cutting from the antiquated cable model, where you're paying upwards of $100 or more for hundreds of channels you don't need. When coupled with a few extra services like Hulu, Netflix, or Amazon Prime, the concept gets even sweeter. So what does it offer for your 20 bucks? ESPN, ESPN 2, TBS, TNT, HGTV, Food Network, the Travel Channel, CNN, the Disney Channel, Cartoon Network, and ABC Family are included in the base package, with a two extra add-on tiers (Kids and News) available on the side for $5 each. ESPN is likely going to be the crux of this campaign, particularly given that subscribers will gain access to the Watch ESPN app. With more sports options, this service will have a gigantic impact on the market. The prospect of ESPN alone is enticing for a lot of millennials and stalwart non-cable owners, but I can see many folks enjoying at least one or two of the other channels consistently. For instance, Regular Show or Adventure Time fans will be able to catch those shows on Cartoon Network -- which is a good thing given how terrible and limited the network's official app is. But without a heavy-hitting drama network like FX, HBO (set to launch its own service this year), or Showtime, it's going to be a hard sell for some -- TBS is no FX. There's another potential holdup for prospective buyers, which is the entire "live TV" aspect. The reason so many people have cut the cord is the immediacy of the Internet. Binge-watching entire seasons of Breaking Bad or House of Cards in one or two days is now the norm. A lot of you out there are not going to watch certain shows at certain times when on-demand is available elsewhere. Sling TV also comes with an option to watch on-demand films though, including some new releases. It's not as amazing as a standard cable setup or even Amazon's Instant Video section, but it has a good deal of new releases on-hand, with more to come after the full service rolls out. Once you rent something you have 30 days to watch it, and 24 hours to finish it once started. In other words, it's a standard on-demand service, which is a nice thing to have packed in the box. Dish has also announced that it has a partnership with the Maker network to provide a host of online videos, but that content isn't live yet. Performance-wise, Sling TV is near-flawless, and I was legitimately surprised at how well it worked out of the box, even in its preview state. It's the same quality as any 1080p cable box would provide, and even on LTE it's still crystal clear on my iPhone 6 (you can even adjust the picture performance to help ease the data-cap pain). Mobile support is a big differentiator from some of its competition, which don't even function without WiFi. All in all I only had a few drops with roughly 20 hours of TV watching, and those were mainly the fault of the Roku 3 itself. After booting the app again I was back to where I was in seconds. Sadly, only select stations have full "live TV" options at this time, like fast-forwarding and such, and there's no real way to DVR anything. So if you're a TV junkie and record 5-10 shows per day, you may not be ready to shed your service just yet. Sling TV is in its early phases with exclusive preview access, but is fully expected to launch in roughly two weeks, and over the next month or so Dish will roll out the apps for the Amazon Fire TV and Xbox One. At this point I can heartily recommend giving it a try if you don't already subscribe to a cable service, as $20 for the first month isn't a huge pill to swallow on top of a free trial week. Microsoft even has a deal with the company that allows Xbox One owners to get an entire month free. Maybe you'll end up cutting the cord, maybe you won't. Check back later for a look at the full launch and Xbox One impressions. [These impressions are based on a trial subscription of the service provided by Dish.]
