Stars: Heather Morris, Nancy Kerrigan, Mr. T, Bonner Bolton, Erika Jayne, David Ross, Simone Biles, Normani Kordei, Charo, Rashad Jennings, Nick Viall Network: ABC, airs Monday Original Telecast: April 3rd, 2017 DANCING WITH THE STARS is well into season 24 and it couldn’t feel more rushed. Sorry, but I have a BIG pet peeve to vent here – there is a HUGE lack of drama when Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews announce at the end of the show who is in jeopardy and then with one big woosh they announce the other nine or ten couples are safe.

POP SHOW PODCAST | © 2016 AssignmentX

Episode 46 of the POP SHOW starring Anthony C. Ferrante is here and once again without Anthony as he was off doing some promotion for his Lifetime thriller FORGOTTEN EVIL. So instead it was left to Ryan Mitchelle (@walkawayENT), Sonia Mansfield (@TheSoniaShow) and myself (@PeterbrownAX) to helm the ship. And helm it we did as we discussed a variety of topics including the season finale of THE WALKING DEAD, which only I watch so it was a quick conversation. Also we profess our love of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and how it is 20 years old this year. That leads […]Read On »

Hey there, dorks. In this week’s episode, we chat about S-Town, a podcast from This American Life and Serial. All seven episodes dropped last Tuesday, and we listened to every episode. Is it addictive listening like Serial season one, or is it disappointing like Serial season two? In our second segment, we review the live-action remake of GHOST IN THE SHELL, and talk about the controversy surrounding the casting and more importantly – is it a good movie? And we end our show by sharing what we are dorking out about, including the series finale of BIG LITTLE LIES, which […]Read On »

Movie Review: THE BLACKCOAT’S DAUGHTER

THE BLACKCOAT'S DAUGHTER | © 2017 A23

Rating: R Stars: Emma Roberts, Kiernan Shipka, Lucy Boynton, Lauren Holly, James Remar Writer: Osgood Perkins Director: Osgood Perkins Distributor: A24 Release Date (theatrical and VOD): March 31, 2017 If a singer holds a note, no matter how beautifully pitched, for too long, it becomes simply sound. The same holds true of ambiguity in a horror movie. If a filmmaker tries to cast doubt over every character and every action, it can be hard to work up suspense, because it’s unclear who is in danger. This is the case with THE BLACKCOAT’S DAUGHTER, written and directed by Osgood Perkins. There […]Read On »
