Rating: R Stars: Jovan Adepo, Wyatt Russell, Mathilde Ollivier, Pilou Asbaek, John Magaro, Iain De Caestecker, Jacob Anderson, Dominic Applewhite, Glanny Taufer, Bokeem Woodbine Writers: Billy Ray and Mark L. Smith, story by Billy Ray Director: Julius Avery Distributor: Paramount Release Date: November 9, 2018 OVERLORD is a new entry in the rich tradition of mixing Nazis and horror. Unlike most other entries in this often low-budget subgenre, OVERLORD is not only comparatively well-funded, but it also works throughout as a pretty good WWII combat mission movie, albeit with some super-gory twists. We see OVERLORD mostly from the viewpoint of […]Read On »

As is often the case, all hell is breaking loose on AGENTS OF SHIELD, Tuesday nights on ABC. As the fourth season ramps up toward its finale, Daisy Johnson (Chloe Bennet) and Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) are trapped in the computer-created artificial world of the Framework, along with virtually everyone they know. The difference is that Daisy and Jemma remember who they are in the real world. Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg), top S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and former director of the organization, thinks he’s a high school teacher who’s new to espionage. S.H.I.E.L.D. director Jeffrey Mace (Jason O’Mara) has just been murdered […]Read On »

It’s rare for an American show to have two Scottish actors as regulars both playing Scottish characters. However, MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD, now in its fourth season Tuesday nights on ABC, boasts Iain De Caestecker as Dr. Leopold Fitz and John Hannah as Dr. Holden Radcliffe. De Caestecker has been with AGENTS OF SHIELD since its premiere. His Fitz is a tech genius whose adoration of erstwhile classmate, biological whiz Dr. Gemma Simmons, played by Elizabeth Henstridge, is now requited. Hannah joined the series in Season 3 as Dr. Holden Radcliffe, a pioneer in the field of artificial intelligence. Until […]Read On »

On ABC’s MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD, now in its second season Tuesdays at 9 PM, all of the characters are in the midst of crisis. S.H.I.E.L.D. director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) was appointed by previous director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), but since almost nobody knows this, Coulson can’t say this to alternate shield director Robert Gonzalez (Edward James Olmos), who thinks Coulson has gone rogue. Coulson’s protégé Skye (Chloe Bennet) has found that she has genetic superpowers that allow her to create earthquakes and scare the hell out of her. Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) actually has gone rogue – […]Read On »

In Season 2 of MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD, ABC Tuesdays at 9 PM, there’s some new kind of havoc around every corner. Phil Coulson, played by Clark Gregg, was resurrected after his big-screen death in MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS, and is now running the beleaguered S.H.I.E.L.D. It turned out that one of Coulson’s trusted agents, Grant Ward, played by Brett Dalton, was really part of the fascistic Hydra organization. Worse, Ward has just escaped, but he remains entranced by Skye, played by Chloe Bennet. Skye is Bennet’s first regular series role. When we met her character at the beginning of SHIELD’s […]Read On »

In ABC’s MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD, now in its second season Tuesday nights at 9, a lot has changed since the series began its first year. The show, adapted by Joss Whedon & Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen from the Marvel comics, is intimately tied in with the Marvel film universe, so when Hydra agents emerged to wreak havoc with S.H.I.E.L.D. from within during the big screen’s CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, all hell immediately also broke loose on AGENTS. In the aftermath, it turned out that team member Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) was a Hydra mole. Team chief Phil […]Read On »

If this show needed a strong female character that isn’t wrapped up in daddy issues or constantly pining for her boss to get back to being the old guy she used to know it is MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD. Palicki, for those uninitiated, is hot-as-balls. She was originally found in the great NBC series FRIDAY NIGHT […]Read On »

Stars: Clark Gregg, Ming-Na wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker, Bill Paxton Suggested Retail Price: $79.99 Distributor: Marvel Studios/Buena Vista Home Entertainment One of the most disappointing things Marvel has done in its bid for superhero dominance is the creation of MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. – an ABC TV series that should have been better than it actually was. Now it’s out on DVD and Blu-ray as THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON for the binge-viewers out there. And considering Joss Whedon, who wrote and directed THE AVENGERS, was at the helm and co-created the series with Jed […]Read On »

It would have launched the series off with a direction and not having to tread water for half a season until the big plotline […]Read On »
