Stars: Tyler Posey, Crystal Reed, Dylan O’Brien, Tyler Hoechlin, Holland Roden, Colton Haynes, Linden Ashby, JR Bourne Distributor: 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment Suggested Retail Price: Release Date: May 22, 2012 Like BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER when it first started airing as a TV series, TEEN WOLF is a title that inherently invites giggles whenever you mention to someone they should check it out. Yet, BUFFY overcame its title and TEEN WOLF will now that it’s hit DVD for its first season. The series made its debut on MTV last summer and proved to be one of the smartest, well-made […]Read On »

Cast: Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Nettles, John Legend, Robin Thicke, Quddus Network: ABC, Thursday nights Original Telecast: June 7, 2012 DUETS continues its downward spiral with another week of frustrating song choices. Song choice is still a big issue with these shows and many contestants suffered this week because of this. The theme this week is “Songs That Inspire.” Did I see this theme eight times last season on AMERICAN IDOL? Can’t anyone come up with anything new? How about “Elvis Costello Week” or something more challenging? Ugh. Still no public voting unfortunately – so the show proves to be a […]Read On »

Just when you think things couldn’t go darker in the offices of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, we have “Commissions and Fees”. There is only one episode left of the season and I really have absolutely NO idea […]Read On »

Cobie Smulders has long been hailed for her comedic prowess as Robin Sherbatsky on HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, now gearing up for its eighth season on CBS. However, with writer/director Joss Whedon’s box-office superhero THE AVENGERS from Disney and Marvel, Smulders shows off her action star side as S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill, running, sliding and shooting with the best of them. There are big differences in doing a weekly TV comedy series and a giant studio action feature film, Smulders notes. “It’s definitely a shift in schedule,” says Smulders. “I made it a point to do a lot of […]Read On »

Distributor: Comedy Central Suggested Retail Price: $57.99 (Blu-ray), $49.99 (DVD) Release Date: March 27, 2012 It’s shocking to think SOUTH PARK has been on the air for fifteen seasons and still going strong. Yet, here is the SOUTH PARK – THE COMPLETE FIFTEENTH SEASON to remind viewers that the series, regardless of its ups and downs, is still one of the most potent and funny sources of topical animated satire. Now on Blu-ray, the 14 episodes provide a snapshot at what creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone do best – make sharp, skewered and funny observations about society (with a […]Read On »

On May 3, 2013, IRON MAN 3 hits theaters and the big question will be — how much has THE AVENGERS given that franchise an even bigger push into the boxoffice stratosphere? In the meantime, we can salivate over what director Shane Black has in store for Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Iron Man, but in the interim, we have this first look photo behind-the-scenes as the film begins production in Wilmington, North Carolina. Check out the image below. Joining Downey for the third go-around is Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, Don Cheadle as James “Rhodey” Rhodes and Jon […]Read On »
