Dorking Out Podcast | © 2017 Dorking Out Show

Hey there, dorks. In this week’s very special episode, we revisit 40 years of Dorking Out for our one-year anniversary. Wait, what? That’s right. We’ve been recording test shows for the past 40 years to make sure all the bugs were worked out, and this time last year we realized we finally nailed it. So, while we have been recording the show for 40 years, it wasn’t official until last year. So, to celebrate our first-year anniversary, we’re sharing with you our most memorable and most embarrassing moments from the past 40 years of shows, including a review of STAR […]Read On »

CHIPS highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for June 27, 2017

CHIPS | © 2017 Warner Home Video

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. CHiPS When I saw the original trailer for the CHiPS movie I thought it looked OK and it might have some funny moments but I thought about how many people actually will get the actual references to the classic television show. There’s an entire generation that has no clue about Ponch and Jon. So it already had some issues with people knowing what this was about. It showed as it didn’t perform well in the theaters. In the movie version, Ponch is an undercover federal agent investigating […]Read On »

Rating: PG Stars (voices): Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Trey Parker Writers: Cinco Paul & Ken Daurio Directors: Kyle Balda & Pierre Coffin, co-director, Eric Guillon Distributor: Universal Release Date: June 30, 2017  In DESPICABLE ME 3, there’s a moment when Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) mutters, “I miss the Minions.” Well, yes. So likely will most of the audience. Although the little yellow hench-beings are heavily promoted in the DESPICABLE ME 3 trailers, they are largely missing from this third entry in the animated series. In the original 2010 DESPICABLE ME, Gru was a professional super-villain, supported by his mad […]Read On »

Movie Review: BABY DRIVER

Rating: R Stars: Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Lily James, Jon Hamm, Eiza Gonzalez, Jamie Foxx, CJ Jones, Jon Bernthal Writer: Edgar Wright Director: Edgar Wright Distributor: Sony/TriStar Release Date: June 28, 2017 BABY DRIVER has pretty much wall-to-wall music, and almost that much action to go with it. The tale of a very talented, reluctant young driver (Ansel Elgort) working for a crime boss, BABY DRIVER plays like a friendlier version of a Quentin Tarantino movie with more car chases and fewer words. The driver, who calls himself Baby, almost immediately gets a chance to show his stuff, chauffeuring three […]Read On »

In honor of the 20th anniversary of Joss Whedon’s groundbreaking BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, we interviewed actor Camden Toy, who played three different terrifying characters on that series, and a more comedic one in the final series of the BUFFY spin-off ANGEL. In Part 1 of our exclusive interview, Toy talked about playing one of the silent, gliding Gentlemen in BUFFY’s near-wordless “Hush” episode. In Part 2, Toy talks his other two BUFFY roles, the sing-songy skin-eating demon Gnarl in the episode “Same Time, Same Place,” and the primal Ubervamp in multiple Season 7 episodes, his work on ANGEL and […]Read On »

With its first two seasons now available and a third due next year, the Hulu original drama THE PATH examines the dynamics of a spiritual organization, Meyerism, in a state of flux. In the series created by Jessica Goldberg, Eddie (Aaron Paul) has left Meyerism. Eddie’s wife Sarah (Michelle Monaghan) has stayed with the organization and left him for the group’s new leader, longtime adherent Cal Roberts, played by Hugh Dancy. Cal thought he was temporarily in charge while Meyerism’s founder Dr. Stephen Meyer (Keir Dullea) was absent, but events have taken a turn. England-born Dancy has a wide variety […]Read On »

TWIN PEAKS: Director David Lynch talks about THE RETURN

The works of filmmaker David Lynch are often mysterious, so it makes sense that he’s not going to be overly straightforward in discussing Showtime’s TWIN PEAKS. The beloved cult hit series, about a murder in a strange little rural Northwestern town, ran for two seasons on ABC, 1990 and 1991. Lynch and co-creator Mark Frost have now brought forth a twenty-five-years-later return as a limited run for Showtime, with Lynch directing all eighteen episodes. Many of the original cast members, including Kyle MacLachlan, Sheryl Lee, Kimmy Robertson, Russ Tamblyn, Madchen Amick and Joan Chen, are back, joined by some new-to-TWIN […]Read On »

THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for June 13, 2017

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE The DC Cinematic Universe has had a hard time getting its footing in the theater (and WONDER WOMAN will only help in this regard) but the animated universe from DC has been killing it for many years. And if you combine animation with LEGOs and Batman, that’s a recipe for success before anything has been filmed. And not surprisingly it is a fun time with numerous jokes and gags that go beyond just children. Of course, there is plenty here for them as […]Read On »

Movie Review: 47 METERS DOWN

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Claire Holt, Mandy Moore, Matthew Modine Writers: Johannes Roberts & Ernest Riera Director: Johannes Roberts Distributor: Dimension Films/Entertainment Studios Motion Pictures Release Date: June 16, 2017  The original JAWS is rightly a classic, but since then audiences have learned to be wary of shark movies. SHARKNADO gonzo parody aside, they can be a cheesy bunch, with 2004’s destabilizing OPEN WATER a rare exception. Well, surprise. 47 METERS DOWN has most of the makings of a first-rate horror movie: a plausible set-up, multiple sources of jeopardy, an environment that’s terrifying all on its own, ace special effects and […]Read On »
