True DetectiveTrue Detective

Genre(s): Drama

BO premieres a new drama series, True Detective, this season focusing on Martin Hart (Woody Harrelson) and “Rust” Cohle (Matthew McConaughey), two detectives and former partners who worked in Louisiana’s Criminal Investigation Division in the mid-1990s.

In 2012, for reasons not immediately revealed, the two are interviewed separately by investigators about their most notorious case: the macabre 1995 murder of a prostitute by a possible serial killer with disturbing occult leanings. As they look back on the case, Hart and Cohle’s personal backstories and often-strained relationship become a major focal point.

Hart, an outgoing native Louisianan and family man whose marriage is being frayed by work stress and infidelity, is (at least on the surface) the polar opposite of Cohle, a lone-wolf pessimist and former narcotics detective from Texas. While the plot is moved forward by their shared obsession to hunt down the ritual killer, the true drama centers around the mercurial nature of Hart and Cohle’s relationship and personalities, and how they affect each other as detectives, friends, and men.

True Blood: Season 6True Blood: Season 6

Genre(s): Romance, Fantasy

Now its sixth unforgettable season, True Blood is HBO’s sexy, scary, wildly entertaining series from Oscar- and Emmy-winner Alan Ball (Six Feet Under) and based on the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris. In addition to returning TB favorites – led by human/faerie hybrid Sookie (Anna Paquin), her unlikely vampire ally Eric (Alexander Skarsgård), and newly reconstituted supervamp Bill (Stephen Moyer) – Season 6 introduces several jarring storylines that threaten what little sense of normalcy remains in and around Bon Temps. As “Billith” comes to terms with his newfound powers after emerging from a pool of blood at the end of Season 5, Louisiana Governor Truman Burrell (new cast member Arliss Howard) declares open season on vampires, replete with novel anti-vamp weapons and a high-tech internment camp. Meanwhile, Sookie and Jason steel themselves for an encounter with the killer of their parents: the mysterious and ancient Warlow, whose identity remains a troubling mystery as the season unfolds.

The Veronica Mars MovieThe Veronica Mars Movie

Genre(s): Drama

The Veronica Mars Movie is making movie history – it is the first 100% crowd-funded movie to ever have been created, produced and released world-wide. Based off the Veronica Mars television series that aired from 2004 through 2007 before being cancelled, the movie picks up ten years after the last episode. It is a stand-alone movie that can be enjoyed even if one has not seen the original television series, and it is a satisfying comeback for die-hard Marshmallow fans.

When the Veronica Mars television series was cancelled all too early, Marshmallow fans despaired. Writer/Director Rob Thomas continued writing Veronica Mars, however, and when Warner Bros. opted not to fund the project, Thomas and Kristen Bell launched a fundraising campaign to produce the film through Kickstarter. They launched the Kickstarter campaign on March 13, 2013 – a full SIX years after the last episode aired – and Marshmallow fans responded swiftly. They raised three times the amount of their goal in less than 10 hours.

The original cast and crew reunited and ultimately proved that the magic they had during the series was still there. The result is a labor of love that no Hollywood studio can replicate. For anyone who has loved a series and felt the utter despair when it has been unceremoniously cancelled, the Veronica Mars Movie is a triumphant victory. For the first time ever, fans of a television series were able to voice their opinion and prove that studio execs are not always right and they don’t always know what is best. May this mark the beginning of a new trend in the movie industry.

You can watch the movie still in theaters, or if it’s not playing near you, it is available on instant video.
