AreYouScreening.com host and BFCA film critic, Marc Eastman, and co-host extraordinaire, Shane Leonard, review Oblivion.
It's the hot, sci-fi, Tom Cruise vehicle that everyone has been waiting for... well, maybe. We'll give you our take, and we hope you'll join us with yours.
We'll also be playing some interview clips with the stars of the film so you can get their take.
Remember classics such as SILENT RUNNING, THE OMEGA MAN and BLADE RUNNER? Well, prepare yourself for OBLIVION - "the best Philip K. Dick story ... which Philip K. Dick never wrote!". The 2013 Tom Cruise / Morgan Freeman sci-fier from writer / dir. Joseph Kosinski (TRON: LEGACY) would slyly promote itself as a typical "hero's journey" actioner, then half-way in take a sharp turn into Philip Dick territory as a mind-bending and emotionally gripping examination of identity and self-identity within the framework of a domestic partnership; even tackling the seldom touched upon theme of true love vs. fate. Modestly successful in America (but a hit overseas), we invite you to take a detailed look at one of the most intelligent (and visually stunning) genre outings since the glory days of the 1960s / 70s. Includes film audio clips, excerpts from the score, commentary by Cruise, Kosinski, composer Anthony Gonzalez (of M83), archival commentary on the "Philip K. Dick" phenomenon by directors Ridley Scott (BLADE RUNNER), Paul Verhoeven (TOTAL RECALL) and more. WARNING! - CONTAINS SPOILERS! - CEJ

Zoe Bell is "the industry's most famous stuntwoman," and is transcending into leady lady. The beautiful New Zealand daredevil breaks down these barriers in her role opposite Morgan Freeman and Tom Cruise in the blockbuster theatrical release (April 19th) of "Oblivion." Set 60 years after an alien invasion has destroyed planet earth, "Oblivion" is an action-packed adventure thriller that pays homage to classic science fiction films of the 1970's. Zoe portrays 'Kara,' of the underground group, lead by Morgan Freeman, of renegrades who are tracking how to save the planet. (Personal note: I saw the film and loved it.) Best known as Quention Tarantinos go-to stuntwaman, Bell has worked in dozens of high profile thrillers, including "Kill Bill, Vols. 1 & 2;" "Inglourious Basterds;" "Django Unchained;" and the cult favorite, "Xena:Warrior Princess." With an impressively established resume of stunt work and a bold transition into starring roles, Bell has now combined her talents in her newest project, "Raze," a much-anticipated thriller, which premiers at the Tribeca Film Festival later this month. She not only stars in the film, but choreographed many of the stunts, setting the overall vision for the fight scenes, and is a producer on the film as well. The film is dubbed as "Fight Club" meets "Hostel." and co-stars Sherilyn Fenn and Rachel Nichols, with a cameo by Rosario Dawson. Bell was born in Waiheke Island, New Zealand, to Tish, a nurse, and Andrew Bell, a doctor. She grew up on Waiheke Island in Auckland, and participated in competitive gymnastics, dance, high diving, scuba, and track and field activities, and Tae Kwon Do. Bell began her career in 1992 when her father treated a stuntman for a head injury and came home with a phone number for her to call.

The sequel to PRINCE OF SHAMBALLA is finally complete and it is one of Nick's most ambitious plots to date. Entitled SUMMONING OBLIVION, it commences with the pair, along with the Monkey King, being given an assignment to defend Xibalba, the Incan underworld of the dead. The dark gods have acted on secret information and launched simultaneous assaults in many places. The Prince must enlist the aid of a powerful sorceress, who may well have a secret agenda of her own. From Shamballa's keep to the hell realms, the Prince must confront and kill a living god.

Well some things you just can't make up. According to Kanye West supporters, Beatles' frontman, Paul McCartney is a "new" artist and should be "thankful" to Mr. West for "discovering" him (sigh...the smartphone generation strikes AGAIN!). If you haven't guessed, this is Afronerd Radio's Mid Week in Review airing Wednesday at 7:30pm (EST). We will be discussing the aforementioned sustained McCartney brain fart issue and additional subject matter such as: the passings of Senator Edward Brooke and ESPN sports analyst, Stuart Scott; a pending Oklahoma bill could fine someone for wearing a hoodie; some police brutality protestors are using their White privilege to confront the police without fear of retribution (Black/Brown protestors appear NOT to have that mutant ability); the idiocy #BlackBrunch as it relates to White liberal hipsters; who is Yung Lean? (oh yeah...COMMERCIAL HIP HOP IS DEAD) and according to IFLS.com, NASA scientists are conceiving of humans residing on cloud cities hovering above Earth's twin, Venus (wow!)
