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 […]
In honor of the premiere of the last batch of season 7 tonight, my Streaming Saturday recommendation this week is Doctor Who. The show is, in a word, fun. If you’re a fan of any form of science fiction, there stands a good chance that Doctor Who has covered it in fantastic fashion. It’s got time travel, aliens, space travel, […]
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. […]
Alien (1979) Release Date: May 25, 1979 Director: Ridley Scott Writer: Dan O’Bannon Stars: Sigourney Weaver, Tom Skerritt, Ian Holm, John Hurt This week’s trailer Tuesday is a little different. In honor of a big review I’m posting on Friday, I decided to share the trailer for Ridley Scott’s sci-fi classic Alien.
This week’s Streaming Saturday post comes a little late in the day but it’s a really good one!
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 […]
Kick-Ass 2 Release Date: August 16, 2013
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?
I’m starting a new weekly post. Streaming Saturday is going to be a weekly recommendation post for movies and TV shows that are available to stream on Netflix. So here’s the first of them. Enjoy.
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 Hangover Part 3 Release Date: May 24, 2013 Directed by: Todd Phillips Written by: Todd Phillips & Craig Mazin Starring: Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, Ken Jeong
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)
