Movies UNDERWORLD: AWAKENING – I’m just glad to see Kate Beckinsale in full body spandex again, who cares how good the movie is or isn’t.

TV Review: GRIMM – Season 1 – “Island of Dreams”

Stars: David Giuntoli, Russell Hornsby, Bitsie Tulloch, Silas Weir Mitchell, Reggie Lee, Sasha Roiz, Bree Turner, Claire Coffee Writers David Greenwalt & Jim Kouf Director: Rob Bailey Network: NBC, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: March 31, 2012 NBC is not doing GRIMM any favors with constantly preempting it and sending it on long hiatuses. The show is one of their major success stories for the network this year – and it’s been doing it in the dead zone of Friday night programming opposite two other similar genre shows FRINGE and SUPERNATURAL. It’s a shame, because if they could find a […]Read On »

So put your feet up, grab some popcorn and check out this week’s selections. MOVIES THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO – First of, Rooney Mara. Wow. Way to give it all (and I do mean all in terms of body and soul) into a character. So much better than Noomi Rapace. Not in terms of acting but in terms of just […]Read On »

TV Review: GRIMM – Season 1 – “Three Coins in a Fuchsbau”

Stars:David Giuntoli, Russell Hornsby, Bitsie Tulloch, Silas Weir Mitchell, Reggie Lee, Sasha Roiz Writers David Greenwalt & Jim Kouf Director: Noberto Barba Network: NBC, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: March 2, 2012 The good news about GRIMM is it’s found a pretty comfortable weekly police procedural structure that always ends up involving monsters usually derived from the Grimm fairy tales. The bad news is the series tends to be a little redundant at times and the CGI-creature effects often take you out of the show. That said, “Three Coins in a Fuchsbau” is an okay episode that brings a little […]Read On »

So put your feet up, grab some popcorn and check out this week’s selections. MOVIES HUMAN CENTIPEDE 2: FULL SEQUENCE – There was a huge hubbub about this horror flick when it was released because it had some moments that not only were completing unnecessary but that they were graphically so. So going into it, I was expecting to be shocked and […]Read On »

Stars: David Giuntoli, Russell Hornsby, Bitsie Tulloch, Silas Weir Mitchell, Reggie Lee, Sasha Roiz Writers: Dan E. Fesman & Alan DiFiore Director: Peter Werner Network: NBC, airs Fridays Original Telecast: February 10, 2012 Consider “Tarantella” an episode somewhat higher than normal on the ick factor for GRIMM, not to mention the attempt at sad and tragic which felt like the writers had written themselves into a corner because there was no satisfactory way to end it. An art lover (Nicholas Gonzales) is talking to his girlfriend on the phone while he’s dissing the art at a gallery opening, and while […]Read On »

On one hand, I really enjoy the nostalgia aspect with the film focusing on the Norwegian Antarctic camp that […]Read On »

Luckily, the show itself is called GRIMM and thankfully it’s anything but. GRIMM is from ANGEL co-creator […]Read On »

For a film franchise that got off to a less than stellar boxoffice start in 2003, WRONG TURN has proven to be one of 20th Century Fox’s steady DVD players and has resulted in two additional direct-to-DVD sequels over the years. Now, WRONG TURN 3 helmer Declan O’Brien (Syfy Channel’s SHARKTOPUS) returns to write and direct a prequel to the franchise with WRONG TURN 4: BLOODY BEGINNINGS. If you ever wondered how the cannibal crazies Three-Finger, Saw-Tooth and One-Eye got their appetite for death, destruction and flesh, then BLOODY BEGINNINGS hopes to shed some new bloody light on things. Hitting […]Read On »
