JASON BOURNE | © 2016 Universal Home Entertainment

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. JASON BOURNE in 4K– So here’s the thing about this installment of JASON BOURNE, it isn’t the best of the franchise for sure. But definitely beats the pants of the previous movie that did not feature Matt Damon. Luckily, the action and thrill of the previous movies are still here but what’s missing is the espionage factor as there are only so many secrets that are left to reveal. Pretty much everything has been revealed (and revealed again) in all the other movies. Still, there is a […]Read On »

But it is all in good fun in this spy spoof. Cohen plays Nobby, the brother of a deadly spy played by Mark Strong. Nobby has been searching for his brother since he tricked him into going with a foster care family and when the two are reunited it is anything but a healthy […]Read On »

Michael Chiklis is in the set that is the office of his VEGAS character, casino owner, businessman and gangster Vincent Savino. Looking out the office window, one can see the entire casino floor, which looks exactly like what it’s meant to be – an opulent Las Vegas casino circa 1960 – rather than a set on a soundstage in Santa Clarita,California. In fact, outside the casino doorway is a replica of the Vegas strip of the era, complete with period cars. On VEGAS, which has its first-season finale on CBS, Friday May 10 at 9 PM, Chiklis’ Savino has been […]Read On »

The characters in TERRA NOVA, which airs on Fox Mondays at 8 PM, have it rough. They’ve left behind the crowded, airless, polluted world of 2049 for the environs of Earth, circa 80 million years BC. There is fresh air and plentiful food, but there are also people-eating dinosaurs, power struggles and a supremely tough military man in charge, Commander Nathaniel Taylor, played by Stephen Lang. Lang (should anyone need reminding) also played badass baddie Col. Miles Quaritch in AVATAR, the most successful motion picture ever made. He was also the villain in this year’s remake of CONAN THE BARBARIAN, a […]Read On »
