Rating: PG-13 Stars: Adam Scott, Toni Collette, David Koechner, Allison Tolman, Conchata Ferrell, Emjay Anthony, Stefania LaVie Owen, Krista Stadler Writers: Todd Casey & Michael Dougherty & Zack Shields Director: Michael Dougherty Distributor: Universal Release Date (theatrical): December 4, 2015 While KRAMPUS is far from the first movie to use the mythic anti-Santa of legend as its villain, it’s arguably the best of the bunch, and indeed, up there with GREMLINS as a Christmas horror movie that deserves to become a tradition. Krampus, for those who’ve never heard of him, is a figure who possibly predates Christianity, but certainly showed […]Read On »

The Los Angeles Premiere of Disney’s FRANKENWEENIE was recently held at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood. FRANKENWEENIE is from creative genius Tim Burton and is a heartwarming tale of a boy and his dog. Filmed in black and white, the story makes you think of the original FRANKENSTEIN. When young Victor’s (voiced by Charlie Tahan) dog Sparky dies unexpectedly he uses the power of science to bring him back to life. As Victor tries to hide his home-sewn creation Sparky gets out and fellow students, teachers and the entire town learn that getting a new “leash on life” can […]Read On »

Stars: Jon Cryer, Ashton Kutcher, Angus T. Jones, Conchatta Ferrell, Holland Tayler Writers: Don Reo & Jim Patterson, story by Chuck Lorre & Eddie Gorodetsky Director: James Widdoes Network: CBS Original Telecast: Sept. 27th, 2012 Now I can honestly say that I have given Ashton Kutcher more than a fair shot at salvaging TWO AND A HALF MEN. However, as his second season with the show begins (and the tenth overall), there is still a noticeable void in the show that can never be replaced by any actor. As one of the few who didn’t quite understand how Charlie Sheen […]Read On »

Jones, Conchata Ferrell, Holland Taylor Writers: Chuck Lorre, Lee Aronsohn, Eddie Gorodetsky, Jim Patterson Director: James Widdoes Network: CBS, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: September 26, 2011 While last week’s Season 9 premiere of TWO AND A HALF MEN was all about shedding the ghost of Charlie Harper (aka Charlie Sheen) from the series, while the second episode, “People Who Love Peepholes”, essentially serves as the official “pilot” episode for the show’s reboot. It’s a brand new show, with actors getting accustomed to either their new characters or their new roles within the […]Read On »

Stars: Ashton Kutcher, Jon Cryer, Angus T. Jones, Conchata Ferrell, Holland Taylor Writers: Chuck Lorre, Lee Aronsohn, Eddie Gorodetsky, Jim Patterson Director: James Widdoes Network: CBS, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: September 19, 2011 One of the most dysfunctional firings in the history of television involved TWO AND A HALF MEN and Charlie Sheen – a fall-out last year that paved the way for a Sheen-less Season 9. What could have been an absolute disaster has been handled rather wisely by CBS, creating a buzz with the addition of Ashton Kutcher to the show, and surprisingly, finding a way to […]Read On »
