At a Q&A session for STAR TREK: DISCOVERY, actress Mary Chieffo describes herself as a “giddy Klingon.” Someone points out that this is perhaps the first and only time the phrase “giddy Klingon” has ever been uttered, but it is accurate. Chieffo (pronounced Chief-Oh) plays the Klingon warrior L’Rell, and she is absolutely giddy about having the opportunity to be part of the STAR TREK franchise. STAR TREK: DISCOVERY premiered on the broadcast CBS network. The premiere and all subsequent episodes will be available (a new one coming out each Sunday over fifteen weeks) on CBS All-Access. Set ten years […]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.

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

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 »

In AT&T Audience Network’s MR MERCEDES, airing Wednesday nights, no one but the audience knows the true identity of the title character.

However, in this ten-part adaptation of Stephen King’s bestseller, Brady’s hobby is murder. Two years ago, he used a stolen Mercedes to kill and cripple people waiting to enter a job fair, and now he wants to do something even bigger. Retired police […]Read On »
