Prime Suspect The Complete Collection (UK) DVD Review And Giveaway

Few shows need less endorsement or introduction than the original Prime Suspect with Helen Mirren. First airing at the beginning of the ’90s, and running through to 2006, the span of time will be immediately misleading to American audiences. The show ran as “series,” which went from two to four hours, with great gaps between the airing of one series and the next. Playing more lik...

Aim High Wants To Put You In The Show… Or Whatever

So, in case you were waiting for the day that you could say that you’d really heard everything… today’s the day. A new “show” is coming your way via Facebook, and you could see parts of “yourself” in the show… sort of. Check this one out. Frankly, I don’t get it, but what do you think?   WARNER BROS. ENTERTAINMENT BECOMES FIRST HOLLYWOOD S...

Drive Movie Review

If the Houser Brothers of Rockstar Games, the creative team behind the famous (or infamous depending on how prude you are) Grand Theft Auto series, relented and allowed a film version of the GTA series to be produced, and if they somehow maintained enough control over the project to inject some artistic fortitude into it and make it more than yet another Hollywood cash-in on a popular video game f...

Star Trek: The Next Generation Gets HD Release For 25th Anniversary

I have to tell you, as odd as it may sound, I’m not really a guy who needs his TV shows in HD. A Blu-Ray release might be different, because you’re bound to get some cool special features, but as far the show itself being in HD, I could take it or leave it. Now, when it comes to Star Trek: The Next Generation, that might be a different story. I’m not absolutely sure it’s a ...

Suburgatory TV Review – ABC

ABC‘s Suburgatory is a show that, whatever else it may manage, is going to have a lot of critics talking. A lot of them are going to love it, and I suspect a lot of viewers will as well, but a lot of them are going to wonder what the hell anyone could see in it. Either way, this is not a show that is going to slip past without comment. On the other hand, it’s also a show that may be in...

Whitney TV Review – NBC

The sit-com market is an especially tricky game these days, and Whitney is an effort that seems to be trying largely to go back to a construct that used to capture people in droves, mixed with a somewhat updated sense of humor. It has certain Mad About You feel to things, but we’re watching a different couple, in a different age. These are people who grew up with Seinfeld, and their friends ...

Dumbo 70th Anniversary Blu-Ray Review

Always one of my favorites from Disney, Dumbo has been released as a special 70th Anniversary issue Blu-Ray and DVD. One of the truly magical efforts in the Disney collection, the courageous little elephant has stolen the hearts of viewers since it was first released. The story itself hardly needs any introduction at this point (though even fans may be surprised when forced to recall that the feat...

Contagion Movie Review – Another Perspective

Thanks to services such as those offered by direct TV and Netflix, people are enjoying new movies at home almost immediately after the movies leave the theaters. While in the past we all had to wait for sometimes as many as six months to enjoy home viewing after a movie left the theaters, it is becoming increasingly easy to simulate a theater experience in the living room. With this in mind, this ...

Charlie’s Angels TV Review

ABC‘s Charlie’s Angels isn’t your ordinary update. Circa ’70s and ’80s fare has become so popular of late that it’s easy to get lost in the sea when looking for examples, including the film versions of this same title, but this one has a somewhat different approach. I’m not at all sure that’s a good thing. Odd in what it does and does not pull from t...

Tim Griffin Chats With Me Vaguely About NBC’s Prime Suspect – Exclusive Interview

So, Prime Suspect is premiering tonight, and I’ve got an interview for you with Tim Griffin who stars as Augie Blando. It was one of the most interesting interviews I’ve conducted in quite a while, and I don’t think I ever actually asked him a question. Unfortunately, due to some technical issues, the first half of the interview is lost to the aether, and it wasn’t until he...

Terry Pratchett’s Going Postal Blu-Ray Review

There have been several live-action translations of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld stories so far, and they’ve really been quite good, but none of them have really captured the essence of the affair like Going Postal. They have largely served as a very good time for those who are already massive fans, but the relation of the splendor has been largely left to the fact that you already read...

Revenge TV Review – ABC

ABC‘s Revenge feels like something that was initially developed for ABC Family more than anything else. Even among shows like Desperate Housewives, it seems like it would be more at home alongside Pretty Little Liars and The Secret Life of the American Teenager. But, I probably don’t mean what you think I mean by saying that. The show follows Emily Thorne (Emily Van Camp), and her inte...
