Grounded For Life – The Complete Series

Grounded For Life – The Complete Series

| September 18, 2012 | 0 Comments

First, let’s talk about the show itself.  I vaguely remember Grounded for Life being on the air, and I’m pretty sure I caught a couple of episodes but never really got into it.  The premise is simple enough:  An Irish catholic couple (Donal Logue and Megyn Price) living in New York with their three kids […]

Dark Shadows: Fan Favorites and The Best of Barnabas

| May 8, 2012 | 0 Comments

In an attempt to capitalize on the buzz surrounding Tim Burton’s take on Dark Shadows, the cult classic TV series is finally being made available in its entirety. While I cannot speak definitively on the Burton and Depp collaboration, which looks like Addams Family Redux, I can say with some certainty that those looking forward […]

Bob’s Burgers The Complete 1st Season

Bob’s Burgers The Complete 1st Season

| May 1, 2012 | 0 Comments

There’s a new restaurant in town, and its original menu included Soylent Green. Don’t’ believe me? The first clue is that Loren Bouchard’s family-centered animated workplace comedy launched with an episode titled “Human Flesh.” And the funeral home is right next door. Coincidence or convenience? Hmmmm. Of course that inaugural episode of Bob’s Burgers said […]

Roadie

Roadie

| March 15, 2012

Twenty-six years ago, Jimmy Testagross (Ron Eldard, Super 8) was hired as a roadie for the legendary Blue Oyster Cult. He thanklessly hauled around their equipment, tuned their guitars, and set up their gear before every show. Two days ago, Jimmy was fired. Unable to get a clear explanation of why the band has suddenly […]

Interview with Terrence J

Interview with Terrence J

| March 15, 2012

Terrence J is no doubt becoming a household name. It’s appropriate, since he was never the “quiet kid”. “In grade school I was always really active in school plays and really active amongst my peers, so I guess it kind of started there,” Terrence says. He’s been working in radio since he was fifteen, and […]

Vexille

Vexille

| March 14, 2012

Japan isn’t known for making well made computer animated movies. Its here in the west that companies like Pixar and Dreamworks have made their marks and impact on the world. So when it came time to watch Vexille, from Oxybot Studio and Ping Pong director, Fumihiko Sori, I didn’t expect much of anything. I’ve had […]

Absentia

Absentia

| March 13, 2012

Even with the explosion of independent horror films and the new types of distribution out there for these films, there are far too few female-centric, relationship-driven horror films. This type of film is ideal for independent filmmakers on a budget– if your central relationship is well-written and strongly acted, you’re most of the way to […]

Melancholia

Melancholia

| March 13, 2012

From the visually arresting overture to the film’s staggering final moments, Lars Von Trier’s Melancholia stands, in my mind, as the single greatest narrative film of 2011. Von Trier, known for consistently delivering the most emotionally-exhausting of films, imbues this exploration of (what else?) melancholia with just the right amount of levity and spectacle to […]

History of the World in Two Hours

| March 12, 2012

The History Channel creates another exciting adventure with their documentary special History of the World in Two Hours. This program provides a thorough chronology of the entire universe, from the infinitesimal flash of the Big Bang to the introduction of the Space Age. While I could have done with a little less emphasis on how […]
