2016 Tribeca Film Festival: ‘Elvis & Nixon’ Interviews

by Catherina Gioino

Until February 1971, President Richard Nixon had meetings in the Oval Office unrecorded, unable to be called upon by him and his staff as well as those that came after him. One of those such meetings included the December 21, 1970 meeting he had with the king, Elvis Presley. In a bizarre twist of actual […]

In the final episodes of House of Cards season four, we come to terms with what’s going on from the start: Claire and Frank never truly loved each other but rather are a political union made for world domination.

‘House of Cards 4×07 – 4×09: Chapters 46-48′ Review

by Catherina Gioino

Dramatic irony: when the audience finally understands what’s going on in that another character might not know. Now this gets used all the time in plays and dramatic works, and often to deepen the sense of suspense the audience now has with extra information. Think of horror movies where you know where the bad guy’s […]

‘House of Cards 4×04 – 4×06: Chapters 43-45′ Review

by Catherina Gioino

For the most part, everyone, even those who have never seen House of Cards, knows it’s about politics and the power plays behind every action. But most of all, they know it’s about trust and the loss of trust: it brings you into the middle of a relationship, tosses you some facts you know will […]

‘House of Cards 4×01 – 4×03: Chapters 40-42′ Review

by Catherina Gioino

Man oh man. I mean, it still doesn’t live up to the “I killed a recurring character in the first episode” act that House of Cards pulled in season two, but it introduces the ever wonderful Ellen Burstyn as Claire’s dying mother Elizabeth Hale and Neve Campbell acting as Claire’s “Doug” counterpart Leann Harvey. There’s […]

by Catherina Gioino

We did it last year, and we’re pretty happy to say that we were pretty much right on a good half of those predictions. And hey, when you have an award winning Netflix show on your hands, you really wouldn’t want the audience to know all that much just by looking at the trailer—right? Well […]

‘House of Cards: Season One’ DVD Review

by Catherina Gioino

CHAPTERS 1 – 3 There are very few examples of adaptations or remakes that have taken well to the public liking, and even fewer prove to be worth the watch and outdo everything in its way. This perfectly describes House of Cards, a remarkable show following the narcissistic Francis Underwood in his strife for political […]
