  1. Conor McGregor: NotoriousFri, 19 Jan 2018 05:05:05 PST
    Recommended Conor McGregor: Notorious:McGregor is a fascinating enough figure, and as pure an example of the visualize success' method as there is. It's been said that his whole MMA modus operandi was to get in, get paid, and get out'. I'm not sure he'll hold to that ethos, but he was enough into the visualization trip to start filming this movie on his way up, rather than as a retrospective. In fact he and director Gavin Fitzgerald got so much of a jump on things that the end of the documentary unravels in quite surprising fashion.So inasmuch as this is a documentary of McGregor's rise to fame composed in part of archival footage from his auto-documentary of his rise to fame, it's hard to take him seriously when he says "fuck fame, I'm in this game to get paid." We can however take quite seriously his prowess in the octagon, his single-minded dedication, and his ability to handle failure with grace...Read the entire review More...
  2. The Simpsons - The Eighteenth SeasonThu, 18 Jan 2018 04:32:07 PST
    Recommended Like Old Man River, The Simpsons just keeps rollin' along. Recently renewed for two more seasons of 22 episodes each, by 2019 The Simpsons will have been on the air for 30 years with 600-plus episodes, making it the longest-running American sitcom and the longest-running animated series. (However, Japan's Sunday night staple Sazae-san, has it beaten by a mile: 48 seasons and around 7,500 episodes.) Like the 20-year run of Gunsmoke, which produced about as many shows, the cast of The Simpsons has remained remarkably, virtually unchanged. Fans and critics generally agree that The Simpsons has been in steady creative decline for a number of years, since around seasons 10 or 11. Looking at Season 18 on DVD, there's certainly some evidence of that, but nearly every episode still offers at least one big belly laugh, and some of the episodes in that set are quite f...Read the entire review More...
  3. Truck Stop WomenTue, 16 Jan 2018 05:43:18 PST
    Recommended In 10 Words or LessDoublecrossing, truck driving and a lot of fleshReviewer's Bias*Loves: Ridiculous genre filmsLikes: Old T&A flicksDislikes: Country musicHates: TrucksThe MovieWith a title like Truck Stop Women, you sort of know exactly what kind of movie you're heading into, and you're certainly going to get it from future Firestarter and Class of 1984 director Mark Lester's 1974 early-career entry into the then-burgeoning genre of truck films. There's lots of trucks, lots of nude women and the plot is completely centered on a southwestern truck stop. There are a few surprises along the way though, which help raise the film above similar exploitation films.Rose (Read the entire review More...
  4. Viceroy's HouseMon, 15 Jan 2018 13:49:13 PST
    Recommended Director: Gurinder ChadhaStarring: Manish Dayal, Hugh Bonneville, Gillian AndersonYear: 2017I'm completely fine with Hugh Bonneville being type cast as the friendly English duke/earl/lord/viceroy/whathaveyou until further notice, because he's both perfect at it and I love to see it. As Robert Crawley in Downton Abbey he was wonderful, that show is one of my all-time favorites, and he's back for a very similar role in Viceroy's House, although with much more politics and much larger issues on the table. This film is a look at history with a PBS flare, at least at first, before it settles into a romance against a backdrop of geopolitical change. That's quite a shift, but that's basically what Downton do...Read the entire review More...
  5. The White KingMon, 08 Jan 2018 12:26:57 PST
    Skip It Director: Alex Helfrecht, Jorg TittelStarring: Lorenzo Allchurch, Agyness Deyn, Jonathan PryceYear: 2016Just when I think I've seen the worst movie of the year, something unexpectedly awful jumps up to bite, reminding me that it exists and wants to be taken into consideration. I mean, The White King is no Sharknado 5: Global Swarming, but then again the former seems to be trying to be an actual movie, while the latter knew all along that it was shit. There's something to be said for honesty, although that won't raise Ian Ziering's career life support mechanism from the bottom of the cesspool that is 2017's most hideous. But it does mean that The White King has an entirely unique strike against it, one...Read the entire review More...

Featuring a small ensemble, led by Burnett, the comedy show featured sketches, musical numbers and what were essentially one-act plays, featuring a cast of regular characters and parodies of popular movies and TV shows.

  9. Finding Joseph I: The HR From Bad Brains DocumentaryThu, 21 Dec 2017 08:50:08 PST
    Recommended The Movie:I don't know much about music these days, but what I do know is that Bad Brains are among those whose influence and legacy in music has been underrated, damn near criminally. The African American quartet of singer Paul Hudson (known as H.R., for Human Rights), his younger brother, drummer Earl, bassist Darryl Jenifer and guitarist Dr. Know (Gary Miller) started in the late 1970s and handled a variety of styles, but perhaps were known for their punk tastes most. For a group of high-energy performers of punk to be black at that time was fairly unprecedented. But they weren't just a punk group; they also played jazz, some of their music had early roots of hip hop in it, along with influences from reggae, ska and dub. Performances were already talked about for their talent and their visceral passion, and H.R. was charismatic and enigmatic, and we didn't know how much so on the latte...Read the entire review More...
  10. The Streets of San Francisco - The Complete SeriesThu, 21 Dec 2017 04:46:19 PST
    Recommended A Quinn Martin Production starring Karl Malden. Also starring Michael Douglas.With Guest Stars James Gregory, Leslie Nielsen...Special Guest Star Andrew DugganAct IThe Streets of San Francisco (1972-77), previously available only as half-season sets, has been repackaged using the same masters, indeed the very same discs, as those releases, but at an astonishingly reduced price - currently around $50 for the entire series, versus $39 back in the day for just one of the half-season sets, or about 40 cents per episode. As noted above, the show was the product of Quinn Martin Productions, whose other shows of the period included Cannon and Barnaby Jones, The Streets of San Francisco being the best of the three. It had two fine actors for the price of one, more attractive locations, and generally slightly better, more believable scripts. Cannon r...Read the entire review More...
