Trailer Into REaction – The Witcher (2019) | Main Trailer

Having seen the most recent trailer for Netflix’s The Witcher it honestly doesn’t reveal any more than the teaser trailer did, which is a bit of a bummer. That being said, the production looks to be of the highest caliber, which gorgeous production design and an interesting visual esthetic. I won’t mention anything about it […]

Dune Made Who!? Dune Made You!

I honestly don’t think there’s a such thing as an ‘unfilmable’ novel–not any more, at any rate–especially with so many ways to present a work. You could choose network television–which brings certain advantages–or maybe HBO or Starz, or streaming options like Amazon or Netflix. You have to match the material to the venue. This is […]

‘Happy Valley’ Review

Seeing The Women That Turn Up On British Television, I Think I Better Understand The Culture That Produced Margaret Thatcher I don’t know what’s in British water, but they have a knack for creating engaging, dynamic female characters for television.  For me one of the best is Supt. Jane Tennison (Hellen Mirren) from multiple seasons of Prime Suspect.  After Tennison […]

The Marvel Televised Universe Is Born!

Marvel Studios has done it again.  With movies they were the first to create a united universe of characters that began with Iron Man, and continued with “The Incredible Hulk,” “Captain America: The First Avenger” and “Thor,” culminating with the blockbuster, “The Avengers.” Now they’re bringing the same approach of a unified universe to Netflix, […]

The Strangest Of Species: A Warranted Remake

A very rare bird.  Think of a coelacanth (which were discovered alive a few decades ago, though despite being such a remarkable, unusual creature it may be endangered) or a Tasmanian Tiger (none discovered alive, though rumors persist). It’s that unusual. What makes it such a great idea is that the original – a precursor […]

An Extra Day: The House of Cards

I spent all last Thursday as an extra on Netflix’s upcoming series, House of Cards (an Americanized version of a British series), and had a great time. Prior to “House of Cards,” I worked as a policeman on “The Dark Knight Rises” (TDKR). You would think, since TDKR had a massive budget compared to “House of […]

Bill Maher Concert on Yahoo!

Bill Maher, currently on HBO with “Real Time,” isn’t a man that minces words.  He’s irreligious, profane, and more than a little bit opinionated, which is why I watch him whenever the opportunity arises. He tends toward liberalism, with a strong grasp of current events, which makes debates with him really interesting to watch. His […]
