Movie Review: DEADPOOL

Rating: R Stars: Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, T.J. Miller, Stefan Kapicic (voice), Brianna Hildebrand, Leslie Uggams, Karan Soni Writers: Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, based on characters created by Rob Liefeld & Fabian Nicieza Director: Tim Miller Distributor: 20th Century Fox Release Date: February 12, 2016 There aren’t many movies that can (or even try to) make us laugh, hard, at the opening credits. DEADPOOL does that, and thereafter reliably supplies humor, romance, hardcore violence, a wee bit of horror (depending on your definition), Marvel Comics mythology and assaults on the fourth wall that magically don’t compromise the […]Read On »

Cast: Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue, David Mazouz, Morena Baccarin, Robin Lord Taylor, Sean Pertwee, Erin Richards, Camren Bicondova, Cory Michael Smith, James Frain, Jessica Lucas Writer: Bruno Heller Director: Danny Cannon Network: Airs on Fox Mondays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Sept. 21, 2015 One of the more interesting things about the Season 2 premiere of GOTHAM “Damned If You Do” is how they tried to get some of the mediocre (and that’s being generous) characters actually something to do. For starters, much beleaguered Barbara Kean (Erin Richards) finally (finally!) does something. After attacking Dr. Thompkins (Morena Baccarin) toward the end […]Read On »

Movie Review: SPY

Rating: R Stars: Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham, Rose Byrne, Miranda Hart, Peter Serafinowicz, Bobby Cannavale, Allison Janney, Jude Law, Morena Baccarin Writer: Paul Feig Director: Paul Feig Distributor: 20th Century Fox Release Date: June 5, 2015 SPY is a rarity, a send-up of the James Bond genre that actually works. Part of its success is that star Melissa McCarthy actually seems like someone who could both be totally taken for granted and entirely capable, part of it works because the script by director Paul Feig has a lot of good jokes that are timed well and part of it is […]Read On »

Fox’s Monday-night hit GOTHAM, developed by executive producer Bruno Heller from the DC Comics BATMAN series, tells the story of that legendary metropolis before Bruce Wayne became the Caped Crusader.

In Fox’s GOTHAM, Mondays at 8 PM, a good woman – and for that matter, a good doctor who isn’t running psychotic experiments – is hard to find. Luckily, Gotham City Police Department homicide detective Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) has encountered the upright Dr. Leslie “Lee” Tompkins, played by Morena Baccarin, when they were both stationed at Arkham Asylum. Now that Gordon is officially back the the GCPD, he’s a little nonplused to find his new girlfriend has just been hired as the city coroner, though Lee seems perfectly happy with this turn of events. GOTHAM isn’t Baccarin’s first foray […]Read On »

Not only does the show do a great job of balancing the “bad guy of the week” with […]Read On »
