Jun 13th: (SPOILERS) Originals’ Writer Carina MacKenzie Talks Toxic Ships in “Shipping Room Podcast”

Jen | Categories: interview, Season 4, Spoilers, The Originals, TV Series | Comment

Carina MacKenzie talks ships, romanticizing violence in the vampire genre and why she cried writing her most difficult episode yet. Have a listen and weigh in on this conversation because I think this brings up a lot of issues overall that have plagued The Originals from the start. I applaud Carina for bringing this discussion to the forefront of the show, but I do disagree on several remakes made.

Hitting back on my first note I do not think Hayley’s biggest issue is being in a relationship with Elijah but more so her overall role in this show from the beginning. I also don’t think Hayley and Elijah’s relationship is the most violent, but I do understand Carina and Julie’s view on why. Also, I do not agree with Carina’s view on the vampire/gothic genre romanticizing death and violence. I think many that love this genre would agree it has always been so much more than that and it encompasses so much more that explaining it would be a whole other article in itself. However, overall I agree with most points and would love to hear what you think so drop us a comment on your take.

Jul 14th: The Movie Crypt: Ep 112: Daniel Gillies

Jen | Categories: Daniel Gillies, Interviews, The Originals | Comments Off on The Movie Crypt: Ep 112: Daniel Gillies

While Daniel Gillies may be best known as “Elijah Mikaelson” on the hit television shows THE ORIGINALS and THE VAMPIRE DIARIES and for his acting roles in movies like SPIDER-MAN 2 and BRIDE AND PREJUDICE, it is his directorial debut (BROKEN KINGDOM) and the accompanying documentary about his incredible trials and tribulations in getting the film funded (KINGDOM COME) that have both become legends on The Movie Crypt podcast.

After countless mentions over the life of this podcast about how KINGDOM COME is the absolute “must see” filmmaking documentary for anyone wanting to learn just how harrowing the indie financing process can be, Daniel FINALLY sits down with Adam, Joe, and Arwen to tell his tale on this week’s fascinating episode. Listen, cringe, laugh, learn, and be inspired as Daniel shares his personal story and recollects on the experience that damn near killed him, yet couldn’t disenchant his love of cinema or his desire to do it all again someday. It doesn’t get more honest or more real than this. And seriously… we can’t recommend enough that you seek out and watch both KINGDOM COME and BROKEN KINGDOM immediately.
