Dorking Out Show | © 2016 Chris Smith/Sonia Mansfield

Hey there, dorks. In this week’s episode, we review THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS, the eighth movie in the popular movie series. Sonia hasn’t seen the other movies, so saying she didn’t like this one would be an understatement. In our second segment, we talk about the return of Mystery Science Theater 3000. And we end our show by talking about what we are dorking out about this week, including the return of BETTER CALL SAUL and the Star Wars Celebration tribute to Carrie Fisher. We hope you enjoy our dorky podcast. You can listen to us here, or you can […]Read On »

While most Disney animated titles are usually beautiful, MOANA is that much more because of the great variety of colors from the clear blue ocean to the vivid […]Read On »

If you’re a teen heading off to explore a Vern-nian wonderland, a more powerful wingman to have at your side than even The Rock is composer Andrew Lockington. Truly burrowing onto the scene with 2008’s JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH, Lockington impressed with his ability to conjure a wide-eyed sense of orchestral wonder for these kid-friendly re-jigs of their parent’s fantasy classics. Now after a slightly more foreboding tour through THE CITY OF EMBER, Lockington returns to the series with JOURNEY 2: THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND with his most impressive score yet. Just don’t expect any hints of life-imperiling […]Read On »

Stars: Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia, Sam Neill Director: Jack Bender Network: Fox, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: January 24, 2012 Like all new genre series, the pilot usually kicks things off in grand fashion, but the next few episodes are all about finding a tone and a way to do epic stories on a much smaller TV budget. The other issue – how much mythology to dole out week by week without confusing new viewers? ALCATRAZ definitely follows that pattern as the third episode “Kit Nelson” struggles to find a workable tone and an engaging mystery without coming off as […]Read On »

Cast: Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia, Sam Neill, Parminder Nagra Writers: Elizabeth Sarnoff, Jack Bender Directors: Danny Cannon, Steven Lilen, Bryan Wynbrandt Network: Fox, Airs Mondays at 9 p.m. Original Telecast: January 16, 2012 Whenever I see something about Alcatraz, I can’t help but think of THE ROCK. Just because it was sooo Michael Bay at his explosive finest and sooo over-the-top Sean Connery (and his quotes about doing the prom queen and generous use of expletives) that it makes for a great watch – not to mention batsh** crazy Nicolas Cage. So throughout the two hour season premiere for ALCATRAZ […]Read On »
