I’ve had a day to think about the season finale of The Walking Dead. I’ve considered the way the various story lines were resolved in the last two episodes and thought about the possibilities for season four. A day has passed and I keep coming back to the single question I blurted out when the third season of The Walking Dead came […]
Doctor Who made its triumphant returned last night with the first episode of the second half of season 7. In “The Bells of Saint John,” the Doctor and new companion Clara faced a mysterious group abducting people using the internet. It was a good episode. Better than a lot of last year’s offerings even. But there’s something more important to […]
Until early last year, I had never seen an Alien movie. Disgraceful, I know. In preparation for the release of Prometheus and Ridley Scott‘s return to sci-fi and the world that terrorized the genre, I watched Alien and Aliens for the first time. Eventually, when the New Year arrived, I bought the Alien Anthology Blu-Ray Collection. Now that I’ve finally […]
Tonight, the best sitcom that no one is watching returns to ABC after a long hiatus. Happy Endings has had a spotty past with ABC’s programming schedule. Before the series went on its hiatus, the network started running the show twice a week on Sundays and Wednesday nights. Now the show is coming back with two new episodes on a […]
Things are moving very fast in White Pine Bay. This week’s installment of the Psycho pre-imagining (I hate me for that too, just roll with it) focused on the town’s shady secrets and introduced us to Norman’s jerk brother. Those were two of the plot points I was eager to see more of in the show and I wasn’t disappointed. […]
The zombie genre often raises interesting questions. How would we behave if society as we know it was gone? How far are we willing to go to protect our own and when the teeth are closing in, what or who are we willing to sacrifice? These are themes The Walking Dead has played with since day one and things are […]
A couple weeks have passed since I impulsively bought the Bond 50th Anniversary Blu-Ray Collection. Last weekend I decided to finally break it out and find out if it was worth the hefty $150 price tag. So here is part one of my planned 12-part series on the Bond movies and blu-ray set. I’m not sticking to any specific time […]
Last night viewers finally had the opportunity to see if the numerous talent in front of (and behind) the camera of A&E’s Psycho prequel/reboot have what it takes to bring one of film’s greatest monsters into the 21st century. Did they succeed or will Bates Motel suffer an early death?
Recently it was announced that Jimmy Smits and Donal Logue will be returning to FX’s juggernaut Sons of Anarchy Entering its 6th season this fall, the highest rated show in FX history has an incredibly loyal fan base filled with people who believe it is quality television. Bringing back Smits and Logue is truly great for the show. Their work […]
The final season of The Office is making me uncomfortable. The show has had a difficult time since Steve Carell left and I admit this season has been slightly less sloppy than the previous one, but the show’s occasional, unexpected shift in tone is leaving me with an uneasy feeling. (Contains spoilers up to and including S09E16 – Moving On)
A few years ago, two things happened. My alarm ringtone was changed to Mind Heist by Zack Hemsey (the music from the trailer for Inception) and I stumbled upon Interstellar’s IMDb page. At the time, Interstellar was one of many movies in line to be directed by Steven Spielberg. Those movies included War Horse, The Adventures of Tintin and Lincoln. […]
I’ve been behind on all the TV shows I watch, which is why I’ve been blogging mostly about movies. But now I’m getting through my backlog and I have a lot to say. First up, How I Met Your Mother. (Contains spoilers up to S08E18 – Weekend at Barney’s)
Here’s the 3rd and final part of my Kevin Smith Retrospective. I’ll just cut to the chase. Here are links to Part I and Part II in case you missed them. Enjoy and follow the blog on Facebook and Twitter, if you haven’t already.
Yesterday I posted the first of three posts revisiting Kevin Smith’s movies. Today I’m here with part two, wherein I discuss Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back and Jersey Girl. This section was interesting because I had only seen two of the movies once before and I’ve never been a huge fan of Jay and Silent Bob as characters. […]
After hearing the news that Kevin Smith will make Clerks 3 before retiring, I decided to revisit his movies. So here is the first of three parts examining his filmography. I’m only including the ones he wrote and directed, so Cop Out won’t be included. Let’s get started.
