Fringe (2008/2009) – Safe, and Bound

Things are quickly coming to a boil for Olivia (Anna Torv), Walter (John Noble), Peter (Joshua Jackson), and Astrid (Jasika Nicole) as Safe gives us a story that begins to tie some threads together while delivering our first real cliffhanger ending. Written by David H. Goodman and Jason Cahill, this episode first debuted on 2…

Fringe (2008) – The Same Old Story, and The Ghost Network

The second episode of Fringe first aired on 16 September, 2008. Written by J.J. Abrams, Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman this episode continued pushing the ideas of body horror first seen in the pilot episode. This time an unfortunate woman sleeps with the wrong man and within moments becomes pregnant, and within minutes delivers a…

Fringe (2008) – Pilot

I never watched Fringe as it aired. I picked up the first season at a very affordable price shortly after it was released and that’s the way I watched the entire series, skip the airdates, and just binge the season on its Blu-ray release. I’ve seen each episode once so going back to revisit it…

Star Trek: Discovery (2019) – Such Sweet Sorrow Part 1 & 2

Star Trek: Into Darkness (2013) – J.J. Abrams

This is a summer blockbuster first and foremost. Since Trek made the leap to the bug screen, they’ve had to eschew some of the material that inherently made Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek what is was when it was a weekly television show. After The Motion Picture, which I still love, the series began to shift…

Sue’s Top 12 Films of 2012 (NOT in Order)

Crimes of Mike Recket (Bruce Sweeney) – I was able to catch this little gem of a film during TIFF, and Mind Reels were even able to catch up with the director, Bruce Sweeney, for a quick chat, as well, so I’ll count myself doubly lucky on this one!  The film stars Nicholas Lea in…

People Like Us – Alex Kurtzman

  I’d probably have to go back and check to be positive, but I think this is my favourite movie so far this year.  I went into it knowing very little – just bits from the trailer, really – but I was definitely drawn to it right from the start, and settling into the theatre,…

Good Morning, Mr. Hunt

  Good morning, Mr. Hunt… You’re mission should you choose to accept it… I settled down to watch my copies of the Mission: Impossible films this weekend, and I will say this, this is a film series that undeniably gets better as they go along. Though if I was chosen to rank them, I think…
