‘Review 2×04: Cult, Perfect Body’ Review

21 August 2015 3:31 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

“It’s easy. You find some vulnerable people, you isolate them, you exploit them financially. Then, rivers of blood.”

Lucille calls it right from the get-go. When a man about to open a CrossFit gym asks Forrest what it’s like to be a cult leader he might as well start chiseling tombstones. Forrest himself even admits, all of five minutes into ‘Cult; Perfect Body,’ that founding a vapid, financially predatory cult with the assistance of his girlfriend(whose death he mourns while still referring to her as “Mrs. Greenfield”) has driven him mad with power. The cult itself is a fabulous joke, Forrest’s unconscious sublimation of his show’s pointlessness into an equally pointless quest to “live a five-star life.” He mocks their credulity while feeding them the same ethos he uses to justify his monstrous behavior as the host of Review, everything in his life twisted and absorbed by his television persona. »

Andy Daly on 'Review' season 2: 'Forrest is even more committed to this show'

30 July 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Review" was one of the most pleasant TV surprises of 2014, not because we didn't expect fun stuff from star and producer Andy Daly, but because Comedy Central had sat on the show for nearly a year, and then premiered it with minimal fanfare. What seemed like a dump job was instead a delight: a sort of serialized sketch comedy show, held together by Daly as "reviewer of life" Forrest MacNeil, a blandly cheerful doofus willing to experience and then review whatever his audience asked him to. Over the course of the first season, Forrest got addicted to cocaine, ate 15 pancakes in one sitting, had to divorce his wife, then eat 30 pancakes in one sitting, accidentally caused his father-in-law to die in outer space, possibly killed another driver in a road rage incident, and bit by bit watched his entire life burn to the ground for the sake of the show. »

Review: 'Mad Men' - 'The Milk and Honey Route': For old times' sake

11 May 2015 9:56 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of last night's "Mad Men" coming up just as soon as I'm the quick brown fox... "We both know things can't be undone." -Trudy "Says who?" -Pete "Mad Men" has chronicled a period of enormous social change (and taken place in a time of enormous change in television), yet it's often seemed agnostic on whether individual change is possible. Over the course of the series, fashions shifted and opportunities rose for women and minorities, but were the "Mad Men" characters themselves really changing with the times? Peggy has certainly grown, yet we've seen Don and Roger and Joan and others have epiphany after epiphany, only to eventually lean back on their old habits. (And even Peggy hasn't been immune to stagnation in her personal life, even as she's evolved professionally.) If anything, Don's frequent backsliding has been one of the most common complaints I've heard about the series' »

‘Dark House’ DVD Review

3 January 2015 9:59 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Luke Kleintank, Tobin Bell, Alex McKenna, Anthony Rey Perez, Zack Ward, Lacey Anzelc, Ethan S. Smith, Lesley-Anne Down, Charles Agron, Daniel Ross Owens, Max Gail, Patricia Belcher | Written by Victor Salva, Charles Agron | Directed by Victor Salva

As a fan of the Jeepers Creepers movies I’m always interested in what Victor Salva will come up with next, and this can be a good and bad thing.  Dark House is his latest movie which he directs and co-wrote the screenplay for and I have to admit that it is an interesting film, if you are a fan of Supernatural or shows like it that focus on a fairly lightweight battle between good and evil.  With Tobin Bell starring, Dark House is also is likely to pull in some of the Saw fans too.

Nick Di Santo (Luke Kleintank) is a man with a gift, he’s able to see »
