Stars: Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman Writer: Gareth Roberts & Steven Moffat Director: Paul Murphy  Original Telecast: September 27, 2014 Network: BBC America For having The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Clara (Jenna Coleman) working to capture an alien inside of a school full of children, there is a surprising lack of any kind of casualties on DOCTOR WHO this week.  “The Caretaker” proves that The Doctor can go undercover (sort of) and manage to make it out with all of the kids and teachers intact; unlike last time in Series 2 “School Reunion” where an undisclosed amount of staff and students …Read On »

As overly critical as I can be over the show and its occasional lack of focus and a good portion of the new cast still not ready for primetime and far from being ready for late night I still have faith. It’s …Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Lara Vosburgh, Morgan McClellan, Kate Whitney, Brian Flaherty, Colleen McGrann, Christopher Parker, Ashley Sutton, Susan Ateh, Richard Wilkinson Writer: Glenn Gers Director: Seth Grossman Distributor: IFC Midnight Release Date: October 3, 2014 While INNER DEMONS isn’t particularly innovative, it is at least a lot more coherent and thought-out than many in the found-footage horror genre. The acting is good, the progression works, and while the premise has been done before – is the main character addicted, psychotic or actually possessed? – it is handled here with verisimilitude. The premise is that a reality TV show called “Step …Read On »

Blu-ray Review: SOUTH PARK – THE COMPLETE SEVENTEENTH SEASON

SOUTH PARK - THE COMPLETE SEVENTEENTH SEASON Blu-ray | ©2014 Paramount Pictures Home Entertainment/Comedy Central

Voices: Trey Parker, Matt Stone Writer-Director: Trey Parker Distributor: Paramount Home Entertainment Suggested Retail Price: $39.98 As SOUTH PARK kicks off its 18th season, it’s time to re-evaluate last year’s 10-episode run which resulted in the epic “Black Friday” trilogy. Last year was the first time SOUTH PARK didn’t have two seven-episode runs (one in the Spring, one in the Fall). Instead, everything was stockpiled in the fall and with four less episodes to boot. It didn’t affect the quality of the show, and if anything, it strengthened the laser focus of the show particularly when they produced the epic …Read On »

Based on Gillian Flynn’s best-selling novel, with a screenplay by Flynn that’s directed by David Fincher, GONE GIRL takes turns in showing us several …Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Annabelle Wallis, Ward Horton, Tony Amendola, Alfre Woodard, Kerry O’Malley, Brian Howe, Eric Ladin Writer: Gary Dauberman Director: John R. Leonetti Distributor: Warner Bros./New Line Release Date: October 3, 2014 ANNABELLE is a prequel to last year’s THE CONJURING, explaining the history of that way creepy doll that was seen in the earlier film. We even get a scene from the earlier film, with two young nurses earnestly explaining to psychic investigator Ed Warren (who is off-screen here, though his voice is still that of THE CONJURING’s Patrick Wilson, going uncredited in ANNABELLE) that the doll one …Read On »

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Craig Stovin, Criselda Cabitac, Kevin Gates, Michael Bartlett, Mark Jeavons, Rob Whitaker Writer: Kevin Gates Directors: Kevin Gates and Michael Bartlett Distributor: RLJ Entertainment/Image Entertainment Release Date: September 30, 2014 DVD and digital download At the start, let’s salute the independent, do-it-yourself filmmaking ethos of writer/producer Kevin Gates and his co-director Michael Bartlett, along with their excellent choice of locations and the naturalistic performances they get from their cast. They’ve found a creepy location with some real mythology behind it. Leads Craig Stovin and Criselda Cabitac are just right as two participants in a three-day experiment …Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 18 – “Gluten Free Ebola”

Voices: Trey Parker, Matt Stone Writer-Director: Trey Parker Original Telecast: October 1, 2014 Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesdays SOUTH PARK has a long history of having on and off weeks. Some times it’s just a matter of opinion – one person’s dislike is another person’s like. So while I absolutely loved the Season 18 debut “Go Fund Yourself,” I wasn’t too fond of this week’s uneven follow-up “Gluten Free Ebola.” While there was an occasional chuckle (the sight gag of a penis exploding out of someone’s pants and flying in the air because of eating Gluten was by far the …Read On »

No sooner did that happen than Tommy Chong & Peta Murgatroyd received a 10 from guest judge Kevin Hart. What is this world coming too? Actually, Chong’s Argentine …Read On »
