Stars: Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman, Michelle Gomez Writer: Steven Moffat Director: Hettie Macdonald Original Telecast: September 19th & 26th, 2014 Network: BBC America The first season of DOCTOR WHO where a new regeneration of The Doctor is introduced is always a bit of a dicey phase. The Doctor is never really who is he is going to be with his new face, and you kind of have to get around all of the more unstable parts of his personality post regeneration.

NARCOPOLIS movie poster | ©2015 IFC Midnight

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Eliot Cowan, Molly Gaisford, Elodie Young, Louis Trefgarne, Jonathan Pryce, James Callis, Harry Lloyd, Robert Bathurst Writer: Justin Trefgarne Director: Justin Tregarne Distributor: IFC Midnight Release Date: Theatrical & VOD, October 2, 2015 NARCOPOLIS is one of those movies that, in narrative terms, ties its shoelaces together at the start and never fully finds its footing thereafter. This is a pity, because writer/director Justin Trefgarne has assembled a strong cast and has the beginnings of a good idea. At the start, a title tells us we’re in 2044 London. Drug company kingpin Todd Ambro (James Callis) …Read On »

MPAA Rating: R Stars: Andrew Garfield, Michael Shannon, Laura Dern, Noah Lomax Writers: Ramin Bahrani and Amir Naderi and Bahareh Azimi Director: Ramin Bahrani Distributor: Broad Green Pictures Release Date: September 25, 2015 By now, it is widely accepted that one of the reasons for the 2008 U.S. economic recession was predatory lending practices by banks. One of the ugliest results of this was people getting turned out of their homes, often with no warning and sometimes when the house in question was the only one the residents had ever known. 99 HOMES takes this as a premise and turns …Read On »
