AMERICAN HORROR STORY, Tuesdays on FX, is now in its seventh season. The series, created by Ryan Murphy & Brad Falchuk, has an anthology format, with each new season telling a different story, and a repertory cast of actors who come back in different roles, year after year. AMERICAN HORROR STORY has dealt with a haunted house, an alien-and-Nazi-plagued mental institution, rival witches’ covens, a small-time circus freak show, a hotel owned by a vampire and inhabited by the spirit of its serial killer builder and a menacing small town. This season, AMERICAN HORROR STORY: CULT, deals with a married […]Read On »

With Jack (Alexander Calvert), the newly-born and already adolescent son of Lucifer, trying to figure out life and Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) arguing over what to do about him, “Lost and Found” might have been a contemplative […]Read On »

Movie Review: HAPPY DEATH DAY

HAPPY DEATH DAY movie poster | ©2017 Universal Pictures

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Jessica Rothe, Israel Broussard, Ruby Modine, Rachel Matthews, Charles Aitken, Jason Bayle, Phi Vu, Rob Mello, Cariella Smith, Caleb Spillyards Writer: Scott Lobdell Director: Christopher Landon Distributor: Universal Release Date: October 13, 2017  GROUNDHOG DAY isn’t the only tale of someone stuck reliving the same day over and over, but it’s perhaps the best-known in pop culture. Also, it’s the one that gets eventually name-checked in HAPPY DEATH DAY, so it seems appropriate to use that 1993 comedy as a reference point. HAPPY DEATH DAY has, as its basic premise, GROUNDHOG DAY redone as a PG-13 college-set […]Read On »

Movie Review: MARSHALL

MARSHALL movie poster | ©2017 Open Road

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Chadwick Boseman, Josh Gad, Kate Hudson, Sterling K. Brown, Dan Stevens, James Cromwell Writers: Jacob Koskoff & Michael Koskoff Director: Reginald Hudlin Distributor: Open Road Release Date: October 13, 2017 Going into MARSHALL, knowing only that it stars Chadwick Boseman as legal legend Thurgood Marshall, the first African-American justice to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court, one can be forgiven for supposing it’s a biopic. In fact, MARSHALL is based on a very small slice of biography. Set in 1940, when Marshall was the top lawyer for the N.A.A.C.P., the film turns out to be a mixture […]Read On »

The result is usually pretty good scores for all and this season was no […]Read On »

In Part 2 of our exclusive interview about Season 3 of LUCIFER (Monday nights on Fox Network), executive producer/show runner Joe Henderson talks series mythology, the addition of Tom Welling to the cast as a series regular, and more. ASSIGNMENT X: What will Tom Welling be doing as LAPD lieutenant Marcus Pierce? JOE HENDERSON: This man is so talented. Here’s what I love about Pierce. We haven’t had an authority figure on our show. Our characters run around, they solve cases, but no one’s come around and said, “How are you guys doing this? What are you doing?” So when […]Read On »

New 4K, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for 10/3

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES | © 2017 Disney Home Video

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES Supposedly this is the last film in the franchise, the fifth film based on a freaking amusement park ride in Disneyland. Don’t get me wrong, these films have been fun from the get-go but after five of them, it has become a little long-in-the-tooth to see Captain Jack Sparrow continually get into trouble, fumble his way through problems for two hours only to have it all work out in the end. This time Sparrow must once again deal […]Read On »

Movie Review: THE MOUNTAIN BETWEEN US

THE MOUNTAIN BETWEEN US movie poster| ©2017 20th Century Fox

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Idris Elba, Kate Winslet Writers: Chris Weitz and J. Miles Goodloe, based on the novel by Charles Martin Director: Hany Abu-Assad Distributor: 20th Century Fox Release Date: October 6, 2017 The following observation is totally sincere: one thing THE MOUNTAIN BETWEEN US has going for it is that it does not lose track of the dog that is essentially the third lead character. Most movies with a similar set-up wrongly assume that much of the audience isn’t invested in animal companions, and make us worry that the characters, the filmmakers or both have simply left the poor […]Read On »

Movie Review: AMERICAN MADE

Rating: R Stars: Tom Cruise, Domnhall Gleeson, Sarah Wright Olsen, Jesse Plemons, Caleb Landry Jones, Alejandro Edda, Fredy Yate Escobar, Mauricio Mejia Writer: Gary Spinelli Director: Doug Liman Distributor: Universal Release Date: September 29, 2017 AMERICAN MADE feels a little like a fever dream, especially for those who have been watching both the documentary THE VIETNAM WAR and the fact-based drama NARCOS. AMERICAN MADE certainly stands on its own, but it is set temporally between the events covered in those other two projects, and there is a feeling of cause and effect flow from one to the other. Barry Seal, […]Read On »
