However, for those who felt 2017 was the epitome of an absurdist political nightmare, THE POST may bring perfect holiday cheer. While Watergate ultimately got the bigger press – think ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN (which this […]Read On »

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 »

Wilmer Valderrama got his big break as the goofy Fez in eight years of the half-hour comedy THAT ‘70S SHOW, but since then he’s done a lot of dramatic roles and expanded into producing and comic books. Right now, television viewers can see the Miami-born Valderrama as a series regular on two entirely different series. On Fox Network, Monday nights at 9 PM, Valderrama plays credit-hogging police lieutenant Will Blake in MINORITY REPORT. Based on the story by Philip K. Dick and the 2002 feature film directed by Steven Spielberg (who serves as one of the show’s executive producers), MINORITY […]Read On »

In Fox Networks’s new series MINORITY REPORT, Mondays at 9 PM, it’s 2065, eleven years after the events in the 2002 film directed by Steven Spielberg from Philip K.

The “precogs” who had been held in isolation, forced to serve the Precrime division of law enforcement with their visions of crimes not yet committed, have been freed. The cops of Washington, D.C. are back to solving murders the old-fashioned way, after they’ve happened. The three precogs we met in the film are now eleven years older. Agatha (Laura Regan) still believes in keeping separate from […]Read On »

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt, Saxon Charbino, Kyle Catlett, Kennedi Clements, Jane Adams, Jared Harris, Susan Heyward, Nicholas Braun Writer: David Lindsay-Abaire, story by Steven Spielberg Director: Gil Kenan Distributor: Twentieth Century Fox Release Date: May 22, 2015 In 1982, POLTERGEIST was largely deemed to be scary as hell. A haunted house tale with extra oomph, it incited everything front nightmares to (in especially impressionable viewers) strange TV viewing habits. The film spawned two sequels, a non sequitur TV series, and now, thirty-three years later, it has an official remake. Despite the fact that POLTERGEIST hardly needs a […]Read On »
