  1. Kansas Vs. DarwinFri, 21 Jul 2017 20:50:41 PDT
    Rent It Living less than 30 miles away from Dover, Pennsylvania (and having family from the area, even), I'm somewhat familiar with the concept of rural areas embroiled in national controversy. The 2004-05 Dover case for teaching intelligent design in public biology classrooms ended well, thanks to a judge's ruling that upheld separation of church and state. For obvious reasons, this Decem...Read the entire review More...
  2. Absolutely AnythingFri, 21 Jul 2017 20:50:41 PDT
    Skip It Arriving on American DVD almost two years after an underwhelming box office performance in the UK, Absolutely Anything is a laundry list of disappointments. Not only is it a startlingly unfunny movie given the talent appearing in it (Simon Pegg, Eddie Izzard, and the entire surviving cast of Monty Python), but it also marks the final efforts of at least two prominent participants: director/co-writer/actor Terry Jones, who was diagnosed with dementia about a year later, and actor Robin Williams, who has a key supporting role as the voice of a dog. Neil Clarke (Pegg) is a prototypical movie schlub, a sensitive but perpetually lazy man who claims to be toiling away at a novel but spends most of his time scraping by in his day job as a schoolteacher and pining for his gorgeous neighbor, Catherine West (Kate Beckinsale). Unbeknownst to Neil, a Galactic Council of alien creatures (voiced by John ...Read the entire review More...
  3. Alone in BerlinFri, 14 Jul 2017 13:29:16 PDT
    Highly Recommended Director: Vincent PerezStarring: Brendan Gleeson, Emma Thompson, Daniel Br hlYear: 2016The rise of the wonderful and incomparable Daniel Bruhl has been well-witnessed, at least among those who have been paying attention. The German/Spanish actor has been hitting more home runs than not with his film choices, or perhaps his talent level helps lift each lucky movie he appears in.

  4. American Wrestler: The WizardMon, 10 Jul 2017 13:53:02 PDT
    Recommended The Movie:There have been a few films that include a metaphoric fish thrown into new, sometimes hostile waters, and on the heels of HBO's fascinating miniseries The Night Of, we now get American Wrestler: The Wizard, a similar story in its broadest strokes, based on true events.Written by Brian Rudnick and directed by Alex Ranarivero, American Wrestler tells the story of Ali Jahani (George Kosturos), an immigrant who left Iran during the Khomeni overthrow to live in California with his uncle Hafez. Hafez is played by Ali Afshar, producer of the film and the subject on whom the movie is based. Ali grows up dealing with bullies at school and is ostracized due to the events of the day, but he decides to take up wrestling. The coach (William Fichtner, ...Read the entire review More...
  5. Bones The Complete SeriesSat, 08 Jul 2017 08:59:04 PDT
    Recommended The Show:Like Castle or White Collar, Bones isanother in a long line of crime show that pair two unlikelypartners. While they don't get along at the start, over the courseof the show the two learns about each other, grow closer, and put alot of murderers behind bars. That's pretty much what happens inBones, and after a very impressive 12-season run the program hasfinished its time on the small screen and that means it's time for acompete series set. This massive 64-disc collection includes all 245episodes and some decent bonus material (unfortunately all of itpreviously released) in a nice new case. It's a decent show thatstarts off slow but builds steam as it goes along.Based on a series of books by Kathy Reichs, the show revolves aroundDr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel), a brilliant forensicanthropologist with little-to-no social skills, and Seeley Bo...Read the entire review More...
  6. 8 Bit Generation: Commodore WarsThu, 06 Jul 2017 04:45:47 PDT
    Recommended 8-Bit Generation is a project called "a labor of love" by those behind it, documenting the rise of consumer computers and video games of the 70s and 80s. "The Commodore Wars" is their first documentary release, focusing on the Commodore computer company. I'm in a bit of a strange place on this subject as during that time I was a video game nut and we also had (and still do) an Apple II computer, but by 1985 I had pretty much lost interest in computers and never did much with them until the internet came along. The big video game crash lessened my interest in those as well, and even though I was one of the first in my area to get a Nintendo Entertainment System (which I didn't even expect to be successful) I never got back into them as hugely as I was before and by now current games don't even appeal to me enough to buy any of the latest game consoles. I remember Commodore's home computers being simp...Read the entire review More...
  7. Ray Donovan: Season 4Mon, 03 Jul 2017 05:06:21 PDT
    Recommended At the end of Season Three of Ray Donovan, following a shootout with Russian mobsters that left our antihero (played by Liev Schreiber) wounded and his father, Mickey (Jon Voight), on the run, Ray received absolution for his past sins from a Catholic priest who had taken an interest in him in a powerful season finale. Now it's time for Season Four to get underway, and Ray's going to walk the straight and narrow now, right? Think again.Ray's descent back into his old ways begins when he begins an association with boxer Hector Campos (Ismael Cruz Cordova), which soon turns south when Ray needs to use his "fixer" skills to get Hector out of a mess that has to do with Hector's half-sister, Marisol (Lisa Bonet), and the fact that Hector has been having an on-aga...Read the entire review More...

  9. DecoyFri, 30 Jun 2017 04:22:01 PDT
    Highly Recommended Decoy a one-season undercover cop show from 1957-58, was unknown to this reviewer until it turned up in our unwanted screener pile. Because it starred cult actress Beverly Garland I was moderately curious to see it, only to discover that it's an unusual, even groundbreaking series of exceptional interest. For starters, it was the first - and still among the very few - American cop show with a female protagonist. One would imagine that, Decoy coming from the 1950s, that a male co-star would have been required to do all the heavy lifting, to sweep in and save the day, but such is not the case at all. In 1957, most television production was shifting to Hollywood, but Decoy was filmed entirely in New York City. Possibly owing to the fact that Garland was not quite a star, there are innumerable "stolen" shots of her filmed all over the city, from major landmarks to virtually unrec...Read the entire review More...
  10. The High Schooler's Guide To College PartiesMon, 26 Jun 2017 16:53:14 PDT
    Skip It Director: Patrick JohnsonStarring: Nate Rubin, Kris Kiley, Brina PalenciaYear: 2015Your guess is as good as mine as to why American Pie worked when so many other coming-of-age sex comedies die a terrible death as soon as they hit the screen, some as soon as they hit the straight-to-DVD shelves. Maybe it was Eugene Levy, maybe it was the pie, who knows, but that film is now a classic, and in comparison, The High Schoolers Guide to College Parties will never be. Not only will it never become a classic, it will never be seen by more than the 200 people globally who invested their time in watching this complete waste of space and regretted every minute of it. Add this film to the long list of those who tried and...Read the entire review More...
