Starring Owen Wilson, Lake Bell, Pierce Brosnan I have a fair understanding of global travel and the expat world. As the world continues to shrink, to be sent on an assignment in a foreign country for work is not an unusual situation. Asia is a popular destination as global multi-nationals extend their reach, and No Escape sets up the main characters … More Review: No Escape … A roller coaster for sure, but not the fun kind.
I wonder. I think I have a bit of attention deficit when it comes to binge watching. I’ll get into a new show and really like it and then … pow. All of a sudden it’s like sensory overload. Can’t watch that one… for a while! I need to cleanse my palette, so to speak, … More New Discovery: Vexed (Netflix)
Much anticipated, much talked about, even much maligned. If you haven’t heard, this show is the companion series to AMC’s The Walking Dead; a post apocalyptic world where the dead prey on the living. Yes, they are zombies, but the “z” word never is used. Walkers, Biters, Roamers… now the Infected. It’s not about them … More Review: Fear the Walking Dead (Pilot)
Starring: Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Christina Hendricks Dark Places… heard of it? This film was not even on my radar, though it seems like it should have been. A co-worker brought it to my attention a few weeks ago (thanks Nicole!), and was frustrated because she didn’t know how to see it. Here’s the case … More Review: Dark Places (Limited Release)
Starring: Norman Reedus, Djimon Hounsou, Sandrine Holt This is the first feature from Robert Kirkman’s Skybound entertainment. You may have heard of Kirkman before. He’s the creator of the comic book series that little AMC show is based on (along with writer and Executive Producer)…. The Walking Dead? I’m a big fan of TWD, so I … More REVIEW: Air (Limited Release)
It’s true. I do have a confession to make. Earlier this summer I sat in a fan convention panel and listened to 5 different actors talk about their experiences on the show, Lost. I, myself, was a little “lost”. My confession is that while I did watch the show when it aired, I got kind … More Confessions of a Binge Watcher: LOST – Life Lessons Learned
I grew up hearing the terms Cold War and Iron Curtain, but was so young that I wasn’t really sure what it meant at that time. After the World War II conflict was resolved, differing political, social and economic ideologies turned former allies into adversaries. These differences kicked off the Cold War which was ongoing between … More REVIEW: The Man from UNCLE… Spies Ritchie Style!
My son was about 4 years old when the previous Fantastic Four (2005) franchise was making the rounds on cable. It was light, infused with humor, and seemed appropriate for him to watch. As young kids find great comfort in repetition, I watched it with him… a lot. At that time, I was not nearly as keen … More Review: Fantastic Four… or not so much
Let’s just say that I have been waiting for this movie since I walked out of MI: 4 Ghost Protocol. I wasn’t as enamored of the three MI predecessors, though enjoyed them for the most part. But, with Brad Bird at the helm, Ghost Protocol was energized with a humor and joie de vivre that … More No spoilers version!! Review of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation
