X-Men: First Class (2011) – Matthew Vaughn

  Sometimes to go forward, you need to go back, as we learn in the next X-Men film as I journey through the Sci-Fi Chronicles book. Continuing its cue of using great actors, Vaughn recasts the characters we’ve already been introduced to as we go back to 1962 and the height of the Cuban Missile…

Cop Car (2015) – Jon Watts

  Releasing today from Anchor Bar on Blu-Ray and DVD is this wonderfully taut, coming of age thriller starring Kevin Bacon, James Freedson-Jackson and Hays Wellford. Two young boys, Travis (Freedson-Jackson) and Harrison (Wellford), are off on an adventure, they’re running away from home, experimenting with swear words, and daring one another as they walk…

Trailer Tracks: Flatliners (1990) – Joel Schumacher

  I came out of this movie wanting to try this… seriously. I think it would be kind of cool. And hey, this is before Schumacher ruined Batman… It has a fantastic cast, Kiefer Sutherland, Kevin Bacon, Julia Roberts, William Baldwin, and Oliver Platt. I still like this one a lot!

Trailer Tracks: A Few Good Men (1992) – Rob Reiner

Based on the play by Aaron Sorkin, the starpower alone in this film makes it worth watching (Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson, Demi Moore, Kiefer Sutherland, Kevin Pollak, Kevin Bacon, Xander Berkley, James Marshall and J.T. Walsh)! Mix that in with some fantastic dialogue, a great story, and you have a film that I love to…

What Sue’s Watching – Playing PVR Catch-up

  Good grief, last week in TV was AMAZING!  I’m still not caught up, and now there are double the number of some shows to talk about, but there are several shows I definitely want to mention, so let’s just jump into it, shall we? The Following:  It occurred to me once that maybe the…

What Sue’s Watching – Playing PVR Catch-up

  Last week saw a lot of epic television, but I’m going to try and focus on a few in particular this time – especially the ones that I inadvertently left out last post. Lost Girl – Tim usually writes the episode recaps, and while I thought of trying to write one for last week’s…

Last Week In Television (April 14-20)

Recently, I decided to make a list of all the shows that regularly grace my television screen, just to see how many there actually are.  Not every show airs during the same parts of the year, so I’m obviously not watching every single show, every single week.  I’m not even sure that would be possible,…

The Following – S0E01&E02 – Thoughts So Far

Serial killers have always fascinated the darker parts of our psyches, what makes people such monsters? We’ve learned that most serial killers hunt alone, but what if one was so charming, so intelligent that he cultivates other souls like him, so adept at making his murders art, that he developed a following? Creepy right? That’s the launching…
