Miller is not having a good year. On Monday night at LaGuardia Airport, Miller was arrested on charges of "intentionally conveying to law enforcement false information about an explosive device."

FX Puts in Pilot Order For Alex Garland's 'Devs' Series

Maybe I'm slightly biased because of how much I LOVED Ex Machina, but I'll see anything Alex Garland makes.  Annihilation was pretty great, minus the final 10 minutes, and Karl Urban has now gone on record to say that Alex "directed Dredd" (which was AMAZING), so that puts more positive tally marks in Garland's collum. It appears his next project will […]

The Weekly Static Interviews: Patrick Fischler of Happy! and Twin Peaks

While I was getting myself acquainted with Patrick Fischler's filmography, one thing came to mind pretty quickly: he's clearly an actor who refuses to be typecast, with a versatility to his craft that's made that possible. Fischler is definitely not a stranger to genre films and television, with 2017 being a particularly strong year for […]

HBO 2018 Promo: Westworld, Sharp Objects – But No Game of Thrones?

Around the holiday season, there are three things you can depend on: more travelling to family and friends this year than you swore you would do last year; at least one present that will end up in your "regift" filing cabinet; and HBO reminding its subscribers just how much they've spent on programming the past […]

A few weeks ago (April 11), HBO released two shows onto Blu-ray and DVD: the third season of Silicon Valley and the fifth season of Veep.
