Still, the lack of material was surprising for a show which seems to have oodles of footage with no time to show it. And what about the confessionals? Can […]Read On »

SULLY: Musicians Christian Jacob and Tierney Sutton bring soulful jazz to new Clint Eastwood film

SULLY soundtrack | ©2016 Varese Sarabande Records

Catastrophe and American heroism have long been passengers together in Hollywood, as square-jawed, macho men save the chosen few with the aid of scores as fiery as their commanding voices. But sometimes real life miraculously allows everyone involved in a disaster to not only survive, but to become a movie whose savior is as resonantly soft-spoken as his score. Such is the astonishing case to be seen, and heard in filmmaker Clint Eastwood’s gripping, and moving dramatization of “The Miracle on the Hudson,” when white-haired pilot Chelsey “Sully” Sullenberger somehow managed to land U.S. Airway Flight 1549 in New York […]Read On »

THE GOOD PLACE key art | ©2016 NBC

THE GOOD PLACE, per NBC’s new Thursday-night comedy – which has a special premiere on Monday, September 19 – is where you go after death if you’ve been a wonderful person. Turns out that, in life, humans are graded by deed, and only the top percentage make it here. How good is the good place? So good that Ted Danson in his most kindly mode plays Michael, the being in charge. Kristen Bell plays Eleanor Shellstrop, who actually wasn’t so good while alive. She’s here through a clerical error, but now desperately trying to be good so no one finds […]Read On »

Candid, quirky and off-the-cuff, the confessionals showed a playful and comical side to the celebrities after they completed their dances. You would think in a two-hour results show they would have […]Read On »

Most of the couples stabilized in the middle of the pack while only Olympian Laurie Hernandez and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy emerged once again in first place, however, only by one point. Hernandez and Chmerkovskiy earned 32 points […]Read On »

Hey there, dorks. You know how much we love to talk about STAR WARS, so this week’s podcast is extra exciting.

The documentary examines one of the most talked about film trilogies, THE PHANTOM MENACE, ATTACK OF THE CLONES and REVENGE OF THE SITH. While a vocal majority of original “Star Wars” fans dismiss, and downright loathe, the prequels. There is a less vocal community of fans. We have a really fun and interesting discussion about STAR WARS […]Read On »

Not only is CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR a continuation of the previous Cap film, CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, but it also serves as a sequel to AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON. The film straddles the line of showing the […]Read On »
