BERLIN STATION | © 2018 EPIX

In Season 3 of BERLIN STATION, which begins Sunday December 2 on Epix, it’s six months after the events of Season 2. The Berlin station of the CIA sends two of its officers, Leland Orser’s Robert Kirsch and Richard Armitage’s Daniel Miller, to Estonia for a bit of diplomacy. Things take some drastic turns, and before you can say “Ukraine,” it looks like there may be open war between Russia and Estonia. Orser, who has played Kirsch since BERLIN STATION began, is a native of San Francisco. His other credits include RAY DONOVAN, SE7EN, SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, INDEPENDENCE DAY, ER, […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: THE FINEST HOURS

THE FINEST HOURS | © 2016 Disney Home Video

Interesting that Disney has done something that doesn’t involve their fairy tale franchise, Marvel or LucasFilm. Not often we see a standalone movie from the massive corporation that doesn’t have any ties to the stuff that makes it the big bucks. But with THE FINEST HOURS we have an action film based on true events about the Coast Guard saving a merchant sea vessel after it gets split in half and those that survive are restlessly keeping it afloat. The visuals are pretty cool because how the hell does a boat stay floating after it has been sliced literally in […]Read On »

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Chiwetel Ejiofor, Margot Robbie, Chris Pine Writer: Nissar Modi, based on the novel by Robert C. O’Brien Director: Craig Zobel Distributor: Lionsgate/Roadside Attractions Release Date: August 28, 2015 Based on the novel by Robert C. O’Brien, Z FOR ZACHARIAH is a different kind of post-apocalyptic film. There are wastelands we glimpse from afar, but we’re not trapped in them. Likewise, there are no bands of marauders seeking oil, water, slaves or food. Instead, we are in a verdant valley that has somehow been untouched by what our heroine Ann (Margot Robbie) refers to as “the mistake,” which […]Read On »

HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 movie poster | ©2014 Warner Bros.

Rating: R Stars: Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day, Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx, Chris Pine, Christoph Waltz, Jonathan Banks Writers: Sean Anders & John Morris, story by Jonathan M. Goldstein & John Francis Daley and Sean Anders & John Morris, characters created by Michael Markowitz Director: Sean Anders Distributor: Warner Bros. Release Date: November 26, 2014 2011’s HORRIBLE BOSSES was a pretty funny if not always on-target riff on STRANGERS ON A TRAIN. HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 suffers in part because it’s not organized as a riff on anything in particular, and partly because a notable portion of its […]Read On »
