RAIDERS!: Documentary directors Jeremy Coon and Tim Skousen roll a home-made boulder of Indy boys to men – Interview

It’s a story that even Hollywood couldn’t make up, and a film urban legend until it was finally proven to be true. No doubt hundreds, if not thousand of children had their lives irreversibly altered upon their first, then repeated viewings of RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, setting creative life goals in a way that went beyond play acting Indy in their friends’ back yards. But for a ragtag group of still-pubescent youths led by “indy” Chris Strompolos and director Eric Zala, it actually meant spending their lives straight into college re-creating RAIDERS shot-for-shot. Put away into their private warehouse, […]Read On »

MTV’s THE SHANNARA CHRONICLES, Tuesdays at 10 PM, has been adapted from Terry Brooks’ best-selling SHANNARA fantasy novels. We’re in a world several thousand years in the future, when technology has been supplanted by magic, and humans are now a minority in a society ruled by elves. The Ellcrys Tree, which has long staved off demons, is dying, and evil is slipping into the realm. Princess Amberle (Poppy Drayton) joins forces with half-human Wil Ohmsford (Austin Butler) in an attempt to prevent the forces of darkness from ascending. THE SHANNARA CHRONICLES was brought to television by the executive producing/writing team […]Read On »

Movie Review: GETAWAY

GETAWAY movie poster | ©2013 Warner Bros.

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Ethan Hawke, Selena Gomez, Rebecca Budig Writers: Sean Finegan and Gregg Maxwell Parker Director: Courtney Solomon Distributor: Warner Bros. Release Date: August 30, 2013 Given most of its nearly wall-to-wall action, the primary reason for the existence of GETAWAY would seem to be a series of car stunts and crashes that are fairly breathtaking. Furthermore, while a lot of films are shot in Bulgaria, GETAWAY is actually set there, which gives us some fresh cityscapes that haven’t been photographed into monotony and also allows at least non-Bulgarian viewers to suspend disbelief about some police procedures (or lack […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Obama Wins!” – Season Finale

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: November 7, 2012 As SOUTH PARK winds down Season 16, the series hits a homerun with its season finale “Obama Wins!” Since this episode was pretty much done before the outcome of the Presidential election was announced, creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone could have been tempting fate with its proclamation and storyline of an Obama win or would have had to do an “alternate ending” of some sort if the Presidential election went in Mitt Romney’s direction. Regardless, “Obama Wins!” is one of the funniest […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “A Scause for Applause”

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: October 31, 2012 After two strong weeks, SOUTH PARK heads back into iffy territory with “A Scause for Applause”, a failed attempt at dealing with the disgrace of Lance Armstrong for using performance enhancing drugs. In the SOUTH PARK version, everyone wearing “What Would Jesus Do” bracelets decides to cut them off when it’s discovered that Jesus used performance enhancement drugs to perform his miracles. This leads to a dilemma with Stan, who decides he’s not going to cut off his bracelet like everyone else – […]Read On »

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: October 24, 2012 It’s been some time since SOUTH PARK has done a Halloween episode, but it was worth the wait as Trey Parker and Matt Stone come up with a new classic with “A Nightmare on Facetime.” Sending up THE SHINING, Blockbuster Video’s financial woes, The Avengers and our obsession with Apple products, there’s enough good will here to provide ample laughs and a great story to boot. When Stan’s dad Randy comes home and says the family is going to be rich because he […]Read On »

Butters gets some bad news from his parents in SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Going Native” | ©2012 Comedy Central Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: October 18, 2012 Often times SOUTH PARK tries so hard to be topical and “parody” things all the time, that you begin to expect parodies even when there is none. And sometimes, when they are sending something up – it can get quite obscure and then you feel like a complete idiot for not even getting the point of the episode. “Go Native” is one […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Insecurity”

Ike and Kyle thing the UPS man is having sex with their mom in SOUTH PARK - Season 16 - "Insecurity" | ©2012 Comedy Central

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: October 10, 2012 Sadly SOUTH PARK seems to be struggling during the latter half of Season 16. Joining the awful “Sarastaball” is the latest episode “Insecurity” – a painfully unfunny exercise in randomness. I sense Trey Parker and Matt Stone are trying for some commentary on how fearful the nation has become since the Colorado shootings at THE DARK KNIGHT RISES screening, but it just doesn’t really work. Things kick off when Ike sees a UPS man having sex with his mom (what he doesn’t know […]Read On »
