THE UNICORN, the half-hour comedy premiering on CBS Thursday, September 26, stars Walton Goggins as the title character, Wade Felton. It should be noted that there is nothing magical, or equine, about Wade. However, he is still a rare creature: a devoted family man, raising two young daughters, who is romantically available after a year of mourning the death of his wife Jill. Wade’s friends, one couple portrayed by Rob Corddry and Michaela Watkins, the other couple played by Omar Benson Miller and Maya Lynne Robinson, are determined to help Wade – who has not been on a date since […]Read On »

Movie Review: THE ACCOUNTANT

THE ACCOUNTANT movie poster | ©2016 Warner Bros.

Rating: R Stars: Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey Tambor, Cynthia Addai-Robinson, John Lithgow, Jean Smart Writer: Bill Dubuque Director: Gavin O’Connor Distributor: Warner Bros. Release Date: October 14, 2016 The intentions behind THE ACCOUNTANT are broadly good. The filmmakers want to show the audience that people on the autism spectrum can be just as capable, if not more so, than neuro-typical (non-autistic) folks. There are certainly plenty of examples of autistic people who are extraordinarily gifted in fields like math and music. Rather than giving us another “very special” drama, director Gavin O’Connor, writer Bill Dubuque […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: RAISING CAIN

RAISING CAIN Blu-ray | ©2016 Shout! Factory

Stars: John Lithgow, Lolita Davidovich, Steven Bauer, Frances Sternhagen Writer/Director: Brian De Palma Distributor: Shout! Factory Suggested Retail Price: $24.93 I was never a huge fan of Brian De Palma’s 1992 thriller RAISING CAIN. Bringing the director back to his early thriller roots (like DRESSED TO KILL and BLOW OUT) that were drenched deeply in Alfred Hitchcock suspense and callbacks, CAIN came off as a trainwreck of a movie mixing tones and themes but never truly satisfying. Was it supposed to be a comedy? A thriller? A black comedy? A parody of other De Palma films? While there was an […]Read On »

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, John Lithgow, Mackenzie Foy Writers: Jonathan Nolan & Christopher Nolan Director: Christopher Nolan Distributor: Paramount Release Date: November 7, 2014 The term “hard science fiction” means that the subject matter involves actual science, rather than the type of science fiction like, say, STARGATE, where the science only exists to get characters from here to there. INTERSTELLAR is a melding of hard science fiction, interpersonal drama, big action sequences and big ideas. The screenplay by Jonathan Nolan and director Christopher Nolan goes for epic scope, with the fate of both […]Read On »

ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND, on ABC Thursdays at 8 PM, takes place in the same overall universe as ONCE UPON A TIME, but it’s very much its own story.

Wonderland, the absurdist magical realm originally created by Lewis Carroll in ALICE IN WONDERLAND, has already been visited by the characters in ABC’s ONCE UPON A TIME. This means that viewers of ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND, the ONCE spin-off that premieres Thursday, October 10 at 8 PM, will have seen the place before, but the characters are all new. Alice (Sophie Lowe) is trapped in an England where no one believes she’s been to Wonderland – and she’s desperate to return so she can rescue her true love Cyrus (Peter Gadiot), who is the Genie of the Lamp, […]Read On »
