Blu-ray Review: HALLOWEEN: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION LIMITED EDITION

Distributor: Anchor Bay/Shout! Factory Suggested Retail Price: $169.99 The significance of HALLOWEEN: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION LIMITED EDITION, which brings together all 10 films under once roof, is not lost among die-hard films. The rights issues for the ten films spans several different companies and many different licensees which has made a box set like this seem more like a pipe dream in the past than a reality. Then some crazy thing happened – Anchor Bay (which controls HALLOWEEN, HALLOWEEN 4: THE RETURN OF MICHAEL MYERS and HALLOWEEN V: THE REVENGE OF MICHAEL MYERS), Miramax/The Weinstein Company which has HALLOWEEN: THE […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: RESURRECTION creator Aaron Zelman on new hit ABC series

In ABC’s RESURRECTION, which is running its eight-episode first season Sundays at 9 PM, a small Missouri town experiences an influx of returnees – from the dead. These people aren’t zombies, but rather come back apparently exactly as they were, mentally and physically, with no memory of where they’ve been in the interim. The first returnee is Jacob Langston (Landon Gimenez), an eight-year-old boy who wakes up in rural China. Getting him home brings U.S. agent J. Martin Bellamy (Omar Epps) into the picture. Bellamy is extremely startled to find that Jacob’s parents, Lucille (Frances Fisher) and Henry (Kurtwood Smith), […]Read On »

In ABC’s new Sunday night series RESURRECTION, adapted by show runner Aaron Zelman from Jason Mott’s novel THE RETURNED (not to be confused with the French series THE RETURNED that runs in the U.S. on Sundance), eight-year-old American Jacob Langston (Landon Gimenez) wakes up in a field in rural China. When U.S. agent J. Martin Bellamy (Omar Epps) brings Jacob back to the small Southern town the boy calls home, two startling facts emerge. One is that Jacob died thirty-two years ago and the other is that the child here now is identical in appearance, memory and DNA to the […]Read On »

The Fall Television season is not that far away and soon new shows will be airing on the main networks and there are a lot of really good ones coming up. Each network has a whole slew of new dramas and comedies. Disney Media Networks held recently the 2013 International Upfront at The Walt Disney Studios Lot in Burbank, California. It was quite an event with talent from new, mid-season and retuning shows. Walking the carpet were the following talent: BABY DADDY Jean Luc Bilodeau – stars as Ben Chelsea Kane – stars as Riley Derek Theler – stars as […]Read On »

TV Review: REVENGE – Season 2 – “Sacrifice”

Stars: Emily VanCamp, Madeleine Stowe, Henry Czerny, Josh Bowman, Nick Wechsler, Gabriel Mann, Ashley Madekwe, Christa B. Allen, Connor Paolo Writer: Mark B. Perry & Joe Fazzio Director: Stephen Schwartz Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 9 p.m. Original Telecast: February 17, 2013 At last, at last, we get to find out who died when the Amanda went down, as we saw in the season premiere of REVENGE. And, in fact, “Sacrifice” starts as it did at the beginning of the season, with the divers and the hand with the wedding band. Now, I have been writing all season that I thought it would be Aidan (Barry Sloane). It made sense, since Aidan clearly was […]Read On »

TV Review: REVENGE – Season 2 – “Lineage”

Stars: Emily VanCamp, Madeleine Stowe, Henry Czerny, Josh Bowman, Nick Wechsler, Gabriel Mann, Ashley Madekwe, Christa B. Allen, Connor Paolo Writer: Nikki Toscano Director: Christopher Misiano Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 9 p.m. Original Telecast: November 25, 2012 Is it my imagination or are things about blow up on REVENGE, and I mean a serious E-Ticket ride to hell in a handbasket blow up? We have that body in Jack’s (Nick Wechsler) boat from the season premiere and a load of back stories in “Linear” that are as much about what’s about to happen as they are about explaining the past. I’m going to take this storyline by storyline, since there’s a lot going […]Read On »

TV Review: REVENGE – Season 2 – “Forgiveness”

Stars: Emily VanCamp, Madeleine Stowe, Henry Czerny, Josh Bowman, Nick Wechsler, Gabriel Mann, Ashley Madekwe, Christa B. Allen, Connor Paolo Writer: Sunil Nayar Director: Matt Earl Beesley Network: ABC, Wednesday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: October 28, 2013 If there is a scene in “Forgiveness” that lasts longer than two minutes, I would be surprised. REVENGE has always had a problem with too much going on at a time, but it’s going more than a little bit nuts here. Add that to a sound problem that made the dialogue hard to hear in a few crucial instances, and it was rough going. Because the real Emily Thorne is actually pretending to be […]Read On »

TV Review: REVENGE – Season 2 – “Intuition”

Stars: Emily VanCamp, Madeleine Stowe, Henry Czerny, Josh Bowman, Nick Wechsler, Gabriel Mann, Ashley Madekwe, Christa B. Allen, Connor Paolo Writer: Dan Dworkin and Jay Beattie Director: Randy Zisk Network: ABC, Wednesday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: October 21, 2012 It’s a little annoying that even though this is a relatively focused episode of REVENGE, I have to dock “Intuition” a grade because of a personal pet peeve – it’s told in flashback. We start with a maid cleaning up a pool of blood from the Grayson entry way, with Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) watching, then crumpling up a piece of paper and tossing it into the fire. Then “24 hours earlier….” Oh, […]Read On »
