Rating: Not Rated Stars: Sheila Vand, Arash Marandi, Marshall Manesh, Mozhan Marno, Dominic Rains, Milad Eghbali Writer: Ana Lily Amirpour Director: Ana Lily Amirpour Distributor: Vice/Kino Lorber Release Date: November 21, 2014 Here is something that doesn’t come along every day – a Farsi-language vampire story set in Iran, written and directed by an Iranian woman, Ana Lily Amirpour. Early into A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT, we can surmise this wasn’t made in Iran (there’s nudity, blood, self-determining women and whatnot), but the Kern County, CA locations are for the most part persuasive as a city in the …Read On »

Stars: Tommy Chong, Bethany Mota, Janel Parrish, Alfonso Ribeiro, Sadie Robertson, Network: ABC, airs Mondays Original Telecast: Nov. 17th, 2014 Tommy Chong ended his gallant ride on DANCING WITH THE STARS tonight as he finished the semi finals but failed to make it to the finals, and yet his personal victory was felt all throughout the ballroom. He touched so many of the dancers and fans of the show that many were in tears tonight as they said their good-byes, including his partner Peta Murgatroyd. Leading the score board tonight, once again, is Janal Parrish & Val Chmerkovskiy with 78 …Read On »

Blu-ray Review: SQUIRM COLLECTOR’S EDITION

SQURIM Collector's Edition Blu-ray | ©2014 Shout! Factory

Stars: Don Scardino, Patricia Pearcy, R.A. Dow, Jean Sullivan Writer-Director: Jeff Lieberman Distributor: Shout! Factory Suggested Retail Price: $29.93 SQUIRM is a 1976 nature run amok film that sported excellent poster art that made it feel like a gloriously gory Italian giallo film, but proved to be something completely different – a Southern character study populated by bloodthirsty worms. Shout! Factory has revisited the film with another excellent Blu-ray with a superb new transfer and solid special features. Modern audiences may be a bit letdown with the pacing and cheats SQUIRM employs. After all, we’re in the era of computer …Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Katie Sarife, Joy Regullano, Alyssa Lynch, Rob Benedict Writer: Robbie Thompson, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Phil Sgriccia Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: November 11, 2014 This reviewer is not often moved to tears, either of hilarity or emotion, nor does she often give out the grade of A. However, in the case of SUPERNATURAL’s two-hundredth episode, “Fan Fiction,” the first occurred and the second is warranted. Written by Robbie Thompson and directed by Phil Sgriccia, what could have easily gone off the rails at every turn is instead hysterically …Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 10 – “Paper Moon”

Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles in SUPERNATURAL - Season 10 - "Paper Moon" | ©2014 The CW/Katie Yu

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Brit Sheridan, Emily Tennant Writer: Adam Glass, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Jeannot Szwarc Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: October 28, 2014 After everything that went down at the end of Season 9 and the start of Season 10, it’s understandable that SUPERNATURAL would want to give the Winchesters a little breathing room to settle down and talk to each other. Of course, there can’t be an entire episode of this, which is why “Paper Moon” also has werewolves in it. Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) are chilling …Read On »

Movie Review: FOXCATCHER

FOXCATCHER movie poster | ©2014 Sony Pictures

Rating: R Stars: Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, Vanessa Redgrave, Sienna Miller Writers: E. Max Frye and Dan Futterman Director: Bennett Miller Distributor: Sony Pictures Classics Release Date: November 14, 2014 FOXCATCHER is a disturbing film, and not only because of the true-life events it depicts, though those are certainly unnerving and dismaying. Director Bennett Miller, working from a screenplay by E. Max Frye and Dan Futterman, creates an atmosphere of unhappiness and shame that works as an emotional fog. However, through all the sweat, tears and finally blood that appears here, we feel as though we’re watching at …Read On »

Turns out, it is actually the diagram of a city. What city and where is still in question. But in order to find this …Read On »

Stars: Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman Writer: Steven Moffat  Director: Rachel Talalay  Original Telecast: November 8, 2014 Network: BBC America Once again I find myself faced with writing a review of DOCTOR WHO and having to drop all kinds of spoilers to do an effective job. I usually shy away from spoilers, but I just have so many questions buzzing around in my head after “Death in Heaven” that I have to bring up things that we game changing, or even just confusing in this season’s finale. Again, let’s just start with Danny Pink (Sam Anderson) is dead. Still dead that …Read On »

Goyer, Daniel Cerone Director: Neil Marshall Network: Airs on NBC, Fridays @ 10p.m. Original Telecast: Nov. 7, 2014 Last week on CONSTANTINE, we were introduced to Zed Martin (Angélica Celaya) as John Constantine’s partner on the supernatural show, as much as Constantine doesn’t want her around nor think she is legit. But there is no denying that her talents – the ability to have visions of upcoming evil (not to mention knowing sign language and modern technology) – come in handy during …Read On »
