Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992) – Fran Rubel Kuzui

Before she stormed the small screen for seven years, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, was a theatrical film that didn’t quite get what Joss Whedon was trying to do with the genre. Instead, playing more for comedy, this vampire film is the next stop in DK Canada’s Monsters in the Movies. The cast is led by…

Stephen King’s Triple Feature

Stephen King has legions of fans, and consequently, every now and again, a studio crafts another run at one of his novels, and while It! is on its way to screens in due course, Paramount Pictures and CBS DVD are releasing a collection of three of King’s mini-series in a very affordable collection.

Robocop 3 (1993) – Fred Dekker

Whatever good will was left after the less than stellar Robocop 2 was absolutely lost with the final instalment in the series, and my latest stop on my way through the Sci-Fi Chronicles book.

Festival creator Adam Lopez and his crew are gearing up for the 2013 festival in October, but wanted to spotlight some highly enjoyable…

The Newsroom S02E07 – Red Team III

Wow. This week we watch ACN’s News Night come apart as the Genoa story completely unravels, with witnesses recanting, doctored evidence, unknown factors that completely affect the story from different sources… Holy crap. Everything goes sideways right after they go to air, when the general (Stephen Root)¬†Jerry (Hamish Linklater)¬†interviewed and then ‘fixed’ the interview and…

The Newsroom S02E06 – One Step Too Many

Wow. What an episode, especially the last act when things really look like they are on the precipice of spinning out of control! The episode opens with the Red Team hearing about the black-op code-named Genoa. A red team’s purpose is to look at all the evidence, witness and material that has been collected, look…
