Showalter Network: The CW, Thursdays @ 8 PM Original Airdate: April 5, 2018  The SUPERNATURAL episode “The Thing” is actually less like THE THING than it is a riff on H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos. It ties in nicely to the scavenger hunt for rift-opening objects that’s been running through much of Season 13 and, bonus, we get Archangel Gabriel (Richard Speight Jr.) back, who has been a wonderfully fun character […]Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Dave Bautista, Kumail Nanjiani, Iko Uwais, Natalie Morales, Betty Gilpin Writer: Tripper Clancy Director: Michael Dowse Distributor: 20th Century Fox Release Date: July 12, 2019 STUBER pairs Dave Bautista and Kumail Nanjiani in a buddy action comedy. Given the track record of both performers, especially Nanjiani, STUBER feels like it ought to be funnier. It’s agreeable in a LETHAL WEAPON knockoff way, and its leads are both deeply likeable. It’s just that few of the gags land in the way that seems intended. Bautista plays LAPD detective Vic, ferociously determined to avenge the death of his partner […]Read On »
