Stars: Tommy Chong, Bethany Mota, Janel Parrish, Alfonso Ribeiro, Sadie Robertson, Lea Thompson Network: ABC, airs Mondays Original Telecast: Nov. 10th, 2014 Holy smokes…Tommy Chong has made it to the semi-finals on DANCING WITH THE STARS! He has just broken the DWTS record for oldest contestant to ever make it this far and boy has he charmed the pants off America, even the judges seem to be in awe of him. Unfortunately, with his placement in the semi-finals someone else had to go and that someone was Lea Thompson, who along with her partner Artem Chigvintsev exited the stage in …Read On »

Sheppard) suffering from unreciprocated friendly feelings towards Dean, etc. “Soul Survivor” ties up most of this. There are some moments of epic weirdness – Crowley saves Castiel?! – but …Read On »

Movie Review: OPEN WINDOWS

OPEN WINDOWS movie poster | ©2014 Cinedigm

Rating: R Stars: Elijah Wood, Sasha Grey, Neil Maskell Writer: Nacho Vigalondo Director: Nacho Vigalondo Distributor: Cinedigm Release Date: November 7, 2014 OPEN WINDOWS declares its intentions right from the start, when we appear to be watching an especially cheesy horror movie starring scream queen Jill Goddard (Sasha Grey). Then it turns out we’re watching a trailer, being watched at a convention, which is in turn being streamed live on the computer of Nick Chambers (Elijah Wood). We can’t say we weren’t stylistically warned that the film is going to play more than a few tricks on its characters and …Read On »

Movie Review: THE PACT 2

THE PACT 2 movie poster | ©2014 IFC

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Camille Luddington, Caity Lotz, Scott Michael Forster, Patrick Fischler, Mark Steger Writers: Dallas Richard Hallam & Patrick Horvath Directors: Dallas Richard Hallam & Patrick Horvath Distributor: IFC Midnight Release Date: Theatrical and VOD October 31, 2014 The good and bad news about THE PACT 2 is that it’s a horror sequel that stands perfectly well on its own; there’s no need to have seen the original PACT. The good news is that newcomers will feel up to speed; the bad news is that this means the plot is relatively sparse. June Abbott (Camille Luddington) is a …Read On »

Movie Review: INTERSTELLAR

INTERSTELLAR movie poster | ©2014 Paramount Pictures

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, John Lithgow, Mackenzie Foy Writers: Jonathan Nolan & Christopher Nolan Director: Christopher Nolan Distributor: Paramount Release Date: November 7, 2014 The term “hard science fiction” means that the subject matter involves actual science, rather than the type of science fiction like, say, STARGATE, where the science only exists to get characters from here to there. INTERSTELLAR is a melding of hard science fiction, interpersonal drama, big action sequences and big ideas. The screenplay by Jonathan Nolan and director Christopher Nolan goes for epic scope, with the fate of both …Read On »

TV Review: DOCTOR WHO – Series 8 Finale Part 1– “Dark Water”

DOCTOR WHO - SERIES 8 - "Dark Water" poster | ©2014 BBC/BBC Worldwide

Stars: Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman Writer: Steven Moffat Director: Rachel Talay Original Telecast: November 1, 2014 Network: BBC America Ordinarily with my DOCTOR WHO reviews I try to avoid spoilers, but with everything that happens in “Dark Water” I really feel the need to actively discuss the major plot points that are big game changers for everyone’s favorite Timelord. Let’s just start with Danny Pink (Sam Anderson) is dead. That’s where the episode begins and I know it’s supposed to be a huge emotional moment, but Danny just hasn’t had enough going for him to make me care that he …Read On »

TV Review: DANCING WITH THE STARS – Season 19 – Week 8 – Michael Waltrip voted out

Stars: Tommy Chong, Bethany Mota, Janel Parrish, Alfonso Ribeiro, Sadie Robertson, Lea Thompson, Michael Waltrip Network: ABC, airs Mondays Original Telecast: November 3, 2014 There was no other place for Michael Waltrip to go but home. After lasting an impressive eight weeks, the Nascar superstar, along with his partner Emma Slater, was voted off DANCING WITH THE STARS a week shy of the semi- finals. A dance off as to who would get three extra points may have hurt him in the DWTS dance race. The highest scoring couple of the night, Janal Parrish & Val Chmerkovskiy who earned a …Read On »

Blu-ray Review: THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE: 40th ANNIVERSARY COLLECTOR’S EDITION

THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 40th Anniversary Collector's Edition Blu-ray | ©2014 Dark Sky Films

Stars: Marilyn Burns, Edwin Neal, Gunnar Hansen Writer: Kim Henkel & Tobe Hooper Director: Tobe Hooper Suggested Retail Price: $49.98 Distributor: Dark Sky Films Time has been very good to 1974’s THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE. Not only has there been multiple, inferior sequels and remakes that have tried to supplant it with lesser results, but a whole new subgenre of horror movies was jump started due to this Tobe Hooper classic. That subgenre of course is the “kids in a van” movie. So many movies have used this template to the point of nauseum – kids take a detour …Read On »

Blu-ray Review: PROM NIGHT (Special Edition)

PROM NIGHT Special Edition Blu-ray | ©2014 Synapse Films

Stars: Leslie Nielsen, Jamie Lee Curtis, Casey Stevens Writer: William Gray from a story by Robert Guza Jr. Director: Paul Lynch Distributor: Synapse Films Suggested Retail Price: $24.95 The 1980 slasher film PROM NIGHT is not a perfect movie by any means. In fact, many late 1970s and early 1980s horror films so dearly missed the mark, they’re better off not being remembered. PROM NIGHT stands somewhere in the middle. One of many slasher knock-offs to feature HALLOWEEN star Jamie Lee Curtis, the other was 1980′s TERROR TRAIN and strangely both contain many of the same problems – and strangely …Read On »

TV Review: CONSTANTINE – Season 1 – “Non Est Asylum” – Series Premiere

Matt Ryan stars as John Constantine in CONSTANTINE | © 2014 Quantrell Colbert/NBC

Cast: Matt Ryan, Angelica Celaya, Charles Halford, Harold Perrineau, Michael James Shaw, Emmett J Scanlan Writer: David S. Goyer, Daniel Cerone Director: Neil Marshall Network: Airs on NBC, Fridays @ 10p.m. Original Telecast: Oct. 24, 2014 So CONSTANTINE’s premiere episode isn’t entitled “Pilot” for the reason that the Pilot episode is something completely different than what was delivered in “Non Est Asylum.” Hopefully, for the better. CONSTANTINE is based on the comic book HELLBLAZER (that also spawned a movie of the same name starring Keanu Reeves) about John Constantine, a damned demon hunter and master of the occult that fights …Read On »
