Matthew Miller gives us our first Chuck (Zachary Levi) episode this week, Chuck Versus the DeLorean, which originally aired on 8 December, 2008. Sarah’s (Yvonne Strahovski) con artist father, Jack Burton (Gary Cole) – another Big Trouble in Little China reference – rolls into town, in the midst of a long con on a sheik…

JFK (1991) – Oliver Stone

The final film in the What Else to Watch list of DK Canada’s The Movie Book, following my viewing of Battleship Potemkin is Oliver Stone’s three hour historical, and dramatic exploration of the Kennedy assassination in 1963.

The Twilight Zone (1961) – A Game of Pool, The Mirror, and The Grave

Paramount Pictures just keeps guiding me deeper and deeper into the Twilight Zone with their Complete Series on blu-ray. This week’s trio of episodes are a lot of fun.

In 1964, two FBI agents, Ward (Dafoe) and Anderson (Hackman)…

Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer (1986)

We’re well into the 1980s with the 101 Horror Movies list, and Michael Rooker takes center stage as a psychopathic killer named Henry, based on murderer Henry Lucas Lee.
