We don’t get new Jennifer Lynch films often enough, so it’s always kind of exciting whenever a new project rises to the proverbial surface. To the immediate left you will find a bit of sales art from the aforementioned filmmaker’s latest creation, “Chained”. The film, which stars Vincent D’Onofrio, Eamon Farren, Julia Ormond, Gina Phillips, and Jake Weber, is currently in production, so don’t expect to see this one until sometime next year. Assuming, of course, that the film doesn’t meet the same fate as “Hisss”. What happened there? Yearning for more? Read this: Eight-year-old Tim and his mother, Sarah, are picked up by Bob, a deranged taxi cab driver on the hunt for his next victim.

Jennifer Lynch hasn't impressed me as of late, considering I hated Hisss and wasn't a fan of the poorly conceived Surveillance. Still, she displays some serious talent, which is why I'm stoked about Chained, being sold at Afm. Starring Vincent D'Onofrio, Julia Ormond, Jake Weber, Eamon Farren, Conor Leslie, Evan Bird, inside you'll find the official sales art for the thriller. "Eight year old Tim and his mother Sarah are picked up by Bob, a deranged taxi cab driver on the hunt for his next victim. Tim witnesses his first murder, the murder of his mother, but it would not be his last. Bob keeps Tim as a reluctant protégé, forcing him to clean and bury the bodies of the young women he drags home.

Chicago – Did you miss the DVD Round-Up? Well, it’s back with as diverse a selection as we’ve seen in some time. The purpose of the DVD Round-Up is to catch the titles that might otherwise fall through the cracks. With everything going on this crazy summer, we may not have time to devote full-length reviews to these five possible gems but we wanted to make sure you knew they were out there, waiting for your hard-earned dollar.
Just a reminder, the DVD Round-Up is designed for information purposes, not for review. Having said that, “36th Precinct” is well-worth a look and “Medium” was always an underrated show. Finally, “Midnight Movie” has some hardcore fans. Check it out and see if you’re one.
“36th Precinct,” “Midnight Movie: The Killer Cut,” and “Norm Macdonald: Me Doing Standup” were released on June 14th, 2011.

When Medium was finally canceled last year, it was a sad day in our house. The TV show starring Patricia Arquette (True Romance) was smart, touching and had plenty of good ole mystery. Thankfully, Paramount Home Entertainment is releasing the final season and complete series on DVD on June 21.
Medium aired for seven seasons, six on NBC, then one more on CBS. If you weren’t a watcher, the television series starred Arquette as Alison Dubois, a suburban mother who’s trying to balance a husband, three daughters, a job at the D.A.’s office and a gift for dreaming about and communicating with dead people. It was the better version of Ghost Whisperer.
In all the midst of the mid season television schedule changes and new show debuts, two shows quietly ended their runs this week. On Tuesday the CW's "Live Unexpected" ended after only two 13 episode seasons. On Friday "Medium" ended after seven seasons and a network change from NBC to CBS two seasons ago. These were two very different, yet similiar shows. "Life Unexpected" was about a teenage foster girl who is reunited with her real parents and "Medium" was about a psychic who helps the police catch criminals. However, in the end both shows were about love and family. These were not the most popular shows, as evident by their cancellations, but they contained some of the most real depictions of family life on television in recent memory.

Tonight, CBS aired the final episode of Medium. After seven seasons and 130 episodes, it was time to say goodbye to Allison DuBois (Patricia Arquette), her husband Joe (Jake Weber), their children and friends. The series finale of Medium is called "Me Without You."
As the episode begins, we see Allison having an evening phone conversation with Joe who's at the start of a flight home from Hawaii. Later, Allison is awoken by another call from Joe. His flight is arriving early and then it hits turbulence, and crashes into the ocean. The episode flashes forward seven years and we learn that Joe indeed died. Allison is now a lawyer involved in a big drug case. Her boss, the district attorney, is killed by the leader of a drug cartel who's on trial. Manuel Devalos (Miguel Sandoval) is the mayor and Lee Scanlon (David Cubitt) is »
Medium star Jake Weber has claimed that he is not concerned by the show's cancellation. CBS confirmed that the series had been axed in November and the series finale will air tonight at 8/7c. "I have a family now," Weber told Assignment X. "It's lovely to work with [the cast, but] there's a whole world out there. I'm really happy to be in this world [of Medium] but when this is over, I look forward to trying... something else." However, the Dawn of the Dead star (more) »
