Rating: R Stars: Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Lakeith Stanfield, Bradley Whitford, Catherine Keener, Betty Gabriel, Marcus Henderson, LilRel Howery, Caleb Landry Jones Writer: Jordan Peele Director: Jordan Peele Distributor: Universal Release Date: February 24, 2017 Director/writer Jordan Peele (of KEY & PEELE fame) describes his feature film debut GET OUT as horror, and we can take him at his word. GET OUT isn’t the type of horror we’re expecting from the set-up, but it gets there nonetheless, and it’s creepy throughout. Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) is a successful photographer who agrees, with some reservations, to go for the weekend to meet […]Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Sennia Nanua, Gemma Arterton, Glenn Close, Paddy Considine, Fisayo Akenade, Anthony Welsh Writer: Mike Carey Director: Colm McCarthy Distributor: Saban Films/Lionsgate Release Date (theatrical and VOD): February 24, 2017 Don’t let the title, or the set-up, fool you. THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS may sound like either a poor-little-rich-offspring saga or the tale of a sensitive young woman dealing with personal issues as she navigates high school or college. It definitely is not. THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS is actually set in mid-apocalyptic England, but despite the running “hungries,” this particular twist has never been […]Read On »

POP SHOW PODCAST | © 2016 AssignmentX

Welcome to another episode of the POP SHOW starring Anthony C. Ferrante. Anthony is still off working on SHARKNADO 5 so he didn’t join us this week. However, we are joined once again by Ryan Mitchelle who is alive and well and explains what he has been up lately including his own movie he directed and helped raise funds for through crowd sourcing. It was a rough show … for me, as I have laryngitis and sound like an 11 year old boy. Besides that Ryan and I are joined by DORKING OUT co-hosts Christopher Allen Smith and Sonia Mansfield.

24: LEGACY: EP Howard Gordon talks returning to the franchise – interview

Fox Network’s new Monday-night thriller 24: LEGACY is in some respects its own show. Corey Hawkins stars as military veteran Eric Carter, who begins working with the Counter-Terrorism Unit (CTU) over the course of one intense day, rather than starting out as a seasoned CTU agent like Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer. But this is a legacy of the original 24, with some returning characters – like Carlos Bernard’s Tony Almeida – the same ticking-clock time frame, and a lot of the behind the scenes creative team once again in the driver’s seat. Among the returnees is executive producer Howard Gordon, […]Read On »
