The House (2017) – Andrew Jay Cohen

Releasing to blu-ray and DVD today from Warner Brothers, is the latest comedic effort from Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler. Somewhere in this film, there is the potential for something really funny, but far too often the dialogue is pushed past the point of hilarity to absurdity, and the story itself could have played as…

Wings of Desire (1987) – Wim Wenders

Remade for those North American audiences who hate to to read as the less than stellar City of Angels, the beautiful Wings of Desire captured hearts and imaginations when it premiered at Cannes, winning Wenders a Best Director award. It is also the next recommendation from the Great Movies – 100 Years of Film book….

The A-Team (1984) – Pure-Dee Poison and It’s a Desert Out There

  I hate to say it, seeing as I’m not quite through season 2 yet, with three seasons to go, but it’s slowly getting tougher to get through these episodes. Following the formula is one thing, but wow… Anyway, first up this week is Pure-Dee Poison. This episode was written by Chris Bunch and Allan…

Spectre (2015) – Sam Mendes

  The new James Bond film opens today, with Daniel Craig’s fourth outing as Ian Fleming’s special agent, 007. And as an avid Bond fan, I had to be there. So what did I think? Gorgeous locations… check. Beautiful women… check (though Monica Bellucci is extremely under-used, as well as Naomi Harris’ Moneypenny). Style… check….

Airwolf (1984) – The Hunted and Sins of the Past

There’s trouble enough for everyone in this week’s double episode installment of Airwolf! First up is The Hunted, written by Chester Krumholz, which aired 20 October, 1984. Gregg Henry guest stars as Robert Villers, a dangerous assassin who has his eye on Carter Andereson III (Joseph Chapman). Anderson has hired String (Jan-Michael Vincent), Dom (Ernest…

The Killing – Day 25 – Donnie or Marie

  This show is KILLING me!!!  So so good – every episode has been amazing, and there was so much going on this week that I had a hard time falling asleep after! Let’s just jump right in, shall we? The key card Linden found on the 10th floor belongs to someone in Richmond’s camp. …

The Killing – Day 24 – Bulldog

  Okay, we are now mere DAYS away from finding out who killed Rosie Larsen, and I am practically sick with anticipation, so this is going to be one scattered post!  I can’t even really bring myself to focus on the events of this episode, because my mind is a-flurry with theories and thoughts right…

The Killing – Day 22 – Sayonara, Hiawatha

  Before I begin gushing about how much Holder ROCKED this episode, let me attempt to talk about some of the other characters and moments I also loved!  In no particular order, of course. Darren Richmond – he is really back on his political horse now, and so far looks to be somehow more able…

The Killing – Day 21 – Off The Reservation

  I don’t know about you guys, but I found this to be one of the most heart-wrenching episodes of the season so far.  Between watching Linden search for Holder with the same fervor she’s used in her quest to find Rosie’s killer, to watching Stan Larsen’s face as he interviewed that last witness…so many…

The Killing – Day 20 – Keylela

  Poor Holder.  He’s not even surprised anymore when Linden kicks him out of the car, but he’s definitely not going quietly anymore.  The respect and genuine care between these two characters becomes more and more evident with each passing episode, and now, even when they argue, their words may cut deeper, but you get…
