Mat DeKinder: “Kill Speed” is a movie that chronicles the perils of trafficking drugs using twin-engine planes that are constantly and incorrectly billed as “high-tech.” Brian Byrne: And what a cast! I do believe this film stars THAT Nick Carter, Joshua Alba (officially Jess... [More]

“Million Dollar Quartet” is not quite a musical and not quite a tribute show, but it is absolutely, positively, a whole lot of fun. The show is based on a magical night in 1956 when Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis Presley got together at Sun Records in Memphis for a... [More]

Erin Byrne regularly dives into the soapy waters of daytime television and tries to make sense of it all. This week she takes on “As The World Turns.” “As the World Turns.” The gateway soap. As I've said before, for years I watched soaps in fits and starts, but “A... [More]

“Gangster Squad” had so much promise. It boasted a notable director, a fantastic cast led by the likes of Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, and it had a ridiculously awesome title. What went wrong? Well a terrible script for starters, but those gluttons for punishment among you can now dig de... [More]

There have been a couple of early teaser trailers for “Man of Steel” but this is the first one to suggest that the movie might actually be awesome. The very “meh” “Superman Returns” taught me to temper my expectations when it comes to Superman movies, but this tr... [More]

I would like to take a moment to give a shout-out to boring science fiction. I use the word “boring” not as a slam, but as a way to describe the quieter, more thoughtful branch of the genre. Now don’t get me wrong, I love asteroid collisions, alien death rays and intergalactic bat... [More]

Mat: Before you get too excited, “Titanic II” is not a poorly-conceived sequel where a spectral Billy Zane rises from the dead and haunts vacationers onboard Carnival cruise ships. If only. Brian: “If only” is right. Dear God, think of the havoc he could wreak: engine fires,... [More]

Listen up ladies and lovers of ladies, have I got the show for you! It's called “Bomb Girls” (airing on the ReelzChannel) and it’s about plucky gals working in a munitions plant in Toronto, in WWII! But before we get started how many of y'all out there know about the Bechdel Test? ... [More]

There is only one movie of note being released on DVD this week, but that is OK as its inherent awesomeness can more than carry the load. "Django Unchained" was, in my humble estimation, the best movie of last year and pop culture's most substantial meditation on slavery since "Roots." Of course it ... [More]

I went into “The Hunger Games” with a fair amount of skepticism.  I braced myself for another tween-fiction-based “Twilight” rip-off but lo and behold it turned out to be a pretty damn good movie; sorta like “The Running Man,” but for kids! But what made the... [More]
