Miniseries Review: 'North & South' (2004)

One of the most moving miniseries ever made, this divine adaptation of Elizabeth Gaskell’s Victorian novel teaches valuable lessons that drive to the very heart of humanity. When Margaret Hale (Daniela Denbe-Ashe) moves from the English countryside to the city with her parents, the adjustment sends her reeling, as does meeting the man that embodies her new home, mill owner John Thornton (Richard Armitage).

Movie Review: 'The Getaway Plan' (2016)

Do you believe that a quality heist movie should include a sharp execution, an involving lead, and a strong ending? Then Eclectic Pop has good news because writer/director Iñaki Dorronsoro delivers all of this in "The Getaway Plan."

Writing About: 'The Crown' Season 1 On Netflix

The second season of “The Crown” will premiere on Netflix, December 8. So here to help you catch up on the vital details of Season 1, and maybe even decide if you want to stream it (if you have not already), is this recap of what I’ve written about “The Crown” on various sites, including Eclectic Pop, Hidden Remote, and the Inquisitr.

Writing About: 'Poldark' Season 3 And Romelza

The third season of “Poldark” has flown by and so has the opportunity to write about it on the Inquisitr. It has been an exciting season to cover, albeit a rather sad one. The original luminosity that once radiated from the series has been replaced by an intensely overcast feeling.

The new tone is not especially surprising given what happened towards the end of Season 2 and that darkness has only grown in the next installment.

With no Jud and less Prudie, there are few laughs, and Ross Poldark (Aidan Turner) brooding about his mistakes, while not openly acknowledging them has only added further tension to the series. Despite all of this, the series is still engaging, and one of the many highlights has been how much the entire cast has continued to impress.

Movie Review: 'Wheelman' (2017)

Wheelman Frank Grillo Netflix
Get ready for some high-speed excitement in writer/director Jeremy Rush's vehicular thriller. Taking place within the span of a solitary evening and mostly inside a hot rod, “Wheelman” follows its eponymous central character through a night that never slams on the breaks. Wheelman (Frank Grillo) is a getaway driver, who has been hired to pick up and speed away with a pair of bank robbers after they complete their latest burglary.
