BRIDGE OF SPIES | © 2016 Disney Home Video

Yeah, so a lot of stuff this week. Beginning of the month is usually a packed one but this week is crazy (and time consuming on my part). So check out what’s available on video this week. Movies: BRIDGE OF SPIES – During the height of the Cold War just before the Soviets erected the wall in East Berlin, a Russian spy is taken captive and put on trial for crimes against the U.S. An insurance attorney (Tom Hanks) is brought in to give him a proper defense but given the time it was anything but fair and he is …Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark A. Sheppard, Mark Pellegrino, Ruth Connell, Emily Swallow, Colin Ford, Lisa Berry Valerie Tian Writer: Andrew Dabb, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Thomas J. Wright Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: January 20, 2016 Historically, Lucifer has a reputation as a tempter, which he upholds mightily in the SUPERNATURAL Season 11 episode “The Devil in the Details.” The Devil, in this instance, as played by Mark Pellegrino, would actually like to be in Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) in order to use him as a vessel. Hey, it almost …Read On »

CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND: Santino Fontana singing and comedy in the new CW series – interview

Santino Fontana’s character Greg Serrano may be a comparatively less loony person on the CW’s hour-long Monday night musical comedy series CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND, but the actor’s own schedule looks pretty bonkers, as he’s simultaneously co-starring in NBC’s new Thursday-night police drama SHADES OF BLUE as NYPD officer Stuart Saperstein. The two shows could hardly be more different. CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND stars Rachel Bloom, who co-created the show with Aline Brosh McKenna, as Rebecca Bunch, who gives up a promising Manhattan law career to move to West Covina, California, in pursuit of her oblivious crush Josh (Vincent Rodriguez III). Rebecca’s daydreams tend …Read On »

GOOSEBUMPS highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for Jan. 26, 2016

GOOSEBUMPS | © 2016 Fox Home Entertainment

The last week of the month in video releases are either jam packed or slim pickings, the latter is the case this week but there is still some decent stuff to check out. Movies: GOOSEBUMPS – Now usually when you take a fan-favorite children’s franchise, slap it with high amounts of CG and an all-star cast everyone gets their panties in a bunch about ruining their childhood or driving a stake through the heart of whatever was left of the history. But GOOSEBUMPS the movie was actually wildly well received by critics and fans alike. Maybe that’s because they didn’t …Read On »

Stars: David Boreanaz, Emily Deschanel, Michaela Conlin, TJ Thyne, Tamara Taylor, John Boyd, Carla Gallo, Gil Darnell, Sarah Lafleur, Michael Reilly Burke, Andy Milder, Skyler Vallo, Eddie Shin Writer: Karine Rosenthal, series created by Hart Hanson, based on the life and writings of Kathy Reichs Director: Chad Lowe Network: Fox Network, Thursdays @ 8 PM Airdate: December 10, 2015 Normally, it’s a good thing when the arced subplots in BONES come to the fore, but in the Season 11 episode “The Cowboy in the Contest,” there are so many that the A storyline gets a bit trampled in the stampede. …Read On »

TV Review: THE X-FILES – Season 10 – “Founder’s Mutation”

Cast: David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Mitch Pileggi, Joel McHale, William B. Davis Writer: James Wong Director: James Wong Network: Airs on Fox, Mondays @ 8p.m. Original Telecast: Jan. 25, 2016 So this was definitely more what I was hoping for from THE X-FILES in terms of storyline and bringing the characters together in a proper reunion (see my review of the first episode here) “Founder’s Mutation” did more in the first 15 minutes for this revival than the entire previous episode did. We see Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) once again part of the FBI’s task force to …Read On »

TV Review: THE X-FILES – Season 10 – “My Struggle” – Season Premiere

Cast: David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Mitch Pileggi, Joel McHale, William B. Davis Writer: Chris Carter Director: Chris Carter Network: Airs on Fox, Mondays @ 8p.m. Original Telecast: Jan. 24, 2016 So THE X-FILES is back and it is the first time we have seen Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) on television for the first time since 2002 and … well, it should have been a bigger deal, right? It seems that “My Struggle” was more concerned about cramming as much as it could about the past nine seasons into one episode rather than about the reunion of these …Read On »

Movie Review: INTRUDERS

INTRUDERS movie poster | ©2016 Momentum Pictures

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Beth Riesgraf, Martin Starr, Rory Culkin, Jack Kesy, Joshua Mikel, Timothy T. McKinney, Letitia Jimenez Writers: T.J. Cimfel and David White Director: Adam Schindler Distributor: Momentum Pictures/Entertainment One Release Date (theatrical and VOD): January 15, 2016 INTRUDERS – not to be confused with the 2012 horror/fantasy of the same title – has a good cast and a decent premise that gets somewhat undermined when one character has to deliver a boatload of third-act expository dialogue. The movie is reasonably creepy and weird, but it isn’t quite creepy and weird enough on the one hand and doesn’t …Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 11 – “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Mark A. Sheppard, Ruth Connell, Emily Swallow, Mark Pellegrino Writers: Eugenie Ross-Leming & Brad Buckner, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Robert Singer. Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: December 9, 2015 The Season 11 SUPERNATURAL episode “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” is a little like one of those inquiries where each response is met with another “Why?” The title refers specifically to Amara’s (Emily Swallow), aka Darkness, quest to find her brother – that is, God – but by the end, we’ve got plenty of questions of our own. Is Amara’s …Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 11 – “Just My Imagination”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Nate Torrence, Carrie Genzel, Dylan Kingwell, Dylan Everett, Anja Savcic Writer: Jenny Klein, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Richard Speight, Jr. Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: December 2, 2015 SUPERNATURAL normally doesn’t do heartwarming (it’s much more inclined toward heart-ripping, in the literal sense). However, in the Season 11 episode “Just My Imagination,” the show goes surprisingly warm and fuzzy, with charming results. We see a little girl having a tea party in her well-appointed room. The child, but not her parents, can see her companion Sparkle, a unicorn man …Read On »
