(Jennifer Broderick)  08/21/2017 5:02 PM EST
Some actors have a few hit movies or television shows and fade away as they get older or cannot master different genres.  Luckily, the casting directors of Blacklist chose an actor that can master comedy, sarcasm, drama, and psycho-thriller genres that has propelled their show into a fourth season that will surely see many more.  James Sp...

DC's Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete Second Season   DC's Legends of Tomorrow Blu-ray Review
(Jennifer Broderick)  08/15/2017 3:25 PM EST
When I was little, Warner Bros. to me was Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and the Road Runner. Saturday morning cartoons were funny, comical, and maybe even a bit serious. I can still remember the cartoons ending with Bugs bursting out saying, "That's all folks" while the caption underneath read "Warner Bros. Cartoon". When Season One o... Read More

Blindspot Blu-ray Review
Blindspot: The Complete Second Season   Blindspot Blu-ray Review
(Jennifer Broderick)  08/08/2017 8:38 AM EST
Suspenseful dramas that captivate the audience week upon week and keep them engaged are a rare find, and if you watch Warner Bros. Blindspot you will know that there are not many shows made like this one.  Created by Martin Gero and produced by Greg Berlanti, who has worked on Everwood as well as the DC's Arrowverse, no won...

(Andres Andy Rozo, Jr)  08/07/2017 4:39 PM EST
You're invited to see "The Dinner" for a not so fun and yet thought provoking two hours. At first, you'll be confused, at least, I was, by the narration and exactly what is going on in this third incarnation (Dutch and Italian were first & second) of Herman Koch's 2009 book about two estranged brothers and their families.Stan Lohman (...

HBO is on a roll.  Most of their shows and documentaries are excellent productions that win awards and critical praise.  Of course, I'm sure it's easier to create top quality work when only 7-13 episodes are being produced but the production quality is top rate nonetheless.  One of their latest endeavors is a seven part miniseries ca...

In 1979 George Burns (Oh, God!), Art Carney (Last Action Hero) and Lee Strasberg (...and justice for all) starred in director Martin Brest's (Scent of a Woman) comedy Going in Style. In 2017 Zach Braff (Scrubs) directed and produced a remake of the film starring Michael Caine (The Dark Knight), Morgan Freeman (The Shaw...
