MTV’s THE SHANNARA CHRONICLES, Tuesdays at 10 PM, has been adapted from Terry Brooks’ best-selling SHANNARA fantasy novels. We’re in a world several thousand years in the future, when technology has been supplanted by magic, and humans are now a minority in a society ruled by elves. The Ellcrys Tree, which has long staved off demons, is dying, and evil is slipping into the realm. Princess Amberle (Poppy Drayton) joins forces with half-human Wil Ohmsford (Austin Butler) in an attempt to prevent the forces of darkness from ascending. THE SHANNARA CHRONICLES was brought to television by the executive producing/writing team […]Read On »

DVD/Digital Release Review: THE INTRUDERS

THE INTRUDERS | © 2015 Sony Pictures Home Entertainment

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Miranda Cosgrove, Donal Logue, Austin Butler, Tom Sizemore, Jenessa Grant, Michael Luckett Writer: Jason Juravic Director: Adam Massey Distributor: Sony Pictures Home Entertainment Release Date: February 24, 2015 The new release THE INTRUDERS, not to be confused with either 2012’s feature INTRUDERS or 2014’s BBC series INTRUDERS, is a fairly generic PG-13 thriller. It’s not a worst-case scenario of the form, by any means, but it steadfastly fails to gain traction as it goes along. College student Rose Halshford (Miranda Cosgrove), on a leave of absence from study, is moved by her architect father Jerry (Donal Logue) […]Read On »

Stars: AnnaSophia Robb, Austin Butler, Ellen Wong, Katie Findlay, Stefania Owen, Brendan Dooling, Chloe Bridges, Freema Agyeman, Matthew Letscher Writer: Amy B. Harris Director: Alfonso Gomez-Rejon Network: The CW Original Telecast: Jan. 21st, 2013 Sadly, it’s not getting any better. Week two of THE CARRIE DIARIES is as hopeless and lacking in authenticity as the show’s pilot last week.  To say this week’s episode “Lie with Me” did nothing to salvage the show’s integrity is like saying that Carrie Bradshaw kinda likes her Manolo Blahniks. Still puzzling more than annoying, the show is written across the board for a nonexistent […]Read On »

Stars: AnnaSophia Robb, Austin Butler, Ellen Wong, Katie Findlay, Stefania Owen, Brendan Dooling, Chloe Bridges, Freema Agyeman, Matthew Letscher Writer: Amy B. Harris Director: Miguel Arteta Network: CW Original Telecast: Jan. 14th, 2013 As a fan of SEX AND THE CITY no one could be more excited to see a new extraction from that series, until well, I actually did see that painful extraction. THE CARRIE DIARIES has no semblance to SEX and the characters are as abstract as they come. The show is a prequel and takes place in 1984 during the beginning of Carrie Bradshaw’s (AnnaSophia Robb) junior […]Read On »
