Star Trek: Picard – Season Two (2022) – Blu-Ray Review

Paramount Canada sends Star Trek: Picard – Season Two home today on blu-ray and DVD! The three disc set is packed with extras, and no matter where you fall on the continuation of Patrick Stewart’s iconic turn as Jean-Luc Picard, it is fantastic, nonetheless, to see the character return again.

Rambo (2008) – Sylvester Stallone

Stallone not only returns in one of his most iconic roles, but he also settles into the director’s chair to bring the grittiest incarnation of Vietnam vet to the screen. Continuity is key, and Rambo (Stallone) is still in the Far East, attempting to live a quiet life as best as he can, when, like…

Insidious: Chapter Three (2015) – Leigh Whannell

Writer Leigh Whannell who had penned the previous two entries in the Insidious series slips into the director’s chair for the third installment, which also serves as a prequel to the Lambert story that occupied the first two films. The film introduces us to a small family living in the city. There’s Sean (Dermot Mulroney),…

M*A*S*H (1981) – Oh, How We Danced, Bottoms Up, and The Red/White Blues

Oh, How We Danced written by John Rappaport, and with an original airdate of 23 February, 1981, has a fantastic A-story, that really touches the heart (even as it messes with series continuity), and a completely forgettable B-story. The B-story first then. Charles (David Ogden Stiers) delivers a substandard sanitation rating to a nearby American…

I’m talking, specifically about…

Star Trek: Discovery – The Enterprise War (2019) – John Jackson Miller

Where was the U.S.S. Enterprise during the Klingon war (2256-2257) as depicted in Season One of Star Trek: Discovery? Miller’s novel, The Enterprise War, available now from Simon & Schuster through their Gallery Books imprint, answers that question. Tying itself in with the events of the television series, as well as the previously released novels,…

The Puppet Masters (1994) – Stuart Orme

Somewhere in The Puppet Masters, despite its continuity errors, its plot holes and poor performance by its lead actor (who is surrounded by some fantastic character actors and recognizable faces) is probably a decent film, I mean it’s based on Heinlein’s novel, so it had a great starting point. When something comes down in the…
