Photos – Gotham Premiere Screening Event And VIP Party In New York City

16 September 2014 5:05 PM, PDT

Easily the most anticipated new show of the season is Gotham, and if you weren’t able to attend the premiere party, here’s the next best thing.

It was clearly quite the party, and even if you aren’t among the hopefuls looking for this to become your next favorite show, it’s a series that absolutely has to be watched… for a while at least. Just based on the cast and crew, and any connection to Batman, you have to check out what they do with this thing. And, I have to say, Donal Logue. The End.

And again, even if you aren’t already sold, there’s something interesting about the idea of expanding on the early years, beyond just the flashback that sets Bruce Wayne in motion.

Well, you may as well check out what went on, and get all the more excited for next week’s premiere of the show. »

Red Band Society Review – TV Fox

16 September 2014 12:04 PM, PDT

Red Band Society Review

The new Fox effort, Red Band Society is the kind of show that gives you a new jolt of hope for television, but also leaves you fearful… because you’ve watched TV before.

The first thing you’ll notice about the trailers and promos for the show is the shortage of adults, but you probably won’t believe a non-cable network series will be brave enough to let the post-teens fade into the background. Thankfully, what seems obvious isn’t the case. Even with notable names like Octavia Spencer and Dave Annable serving as head nurse and the nation’s top pediatric surgeon, they aren’t around that much.

The show is about a group of young patients living in a hospital, who have some serious illnesses and/or are generally not in a great state of health. The series kicks off with Jordi (Nolan Sotillo »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 Trailer Finally Hits

15 September 2014 2:26 PM, PDT

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, which has delivered us with wave after wave of posters and tiny tease videos, finally has a trailer, and it’s actually pretty cool, though perhaps not especially informative for those who haven’t read the books, and are instead just making their way through the films.

We’ve already seen some very short clips of Peeta doing publicity shots, and we get more of that, and we get to see Katniss throwing her weight around a bit, but for the most part, you’ve got to know what’s going on if you want to know what the trailer is giving you.

One question that a lot of people have going in, which the trailer doesn’t really hint at, is where exactly the first one ends. I actually thought we might get a little nugget that might help people figure this out, »

Ru? Instant Reaction Review Podcast Ep. 111 – Tammy Review

15 September 2014 2:06 PM, PDT

Tammy Review

If you’ve been listening in for a while, you probably now that we weren’t really looking forward to Tammy. We’ve been  giving this movie this business, just based off of the trailers, for months, and it turns out that we may have been setting our expectations too high. It’s a film by the deluded, for the theatrically uninitiated, and about the boringly moronic.

We refer to this week several times as the “so you think being a movie critic is a great gig” week, and while this isn’t the worst film we’ve seen in a decade, it was somehow more draining than even films that were worse. It’s unfortunate, because we both have mostly positive thoughts when it comes to Melissa McCarthy, but with this and the completely useless The Heat, we’re getting a little tired of her jumping so »

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Blu-Ray Review

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Blu-Ray Review

The Captain America franchise is a somewhat strange creature among the other features included in the recent trend toward kicking out tons of comic book films. They are films born mostly out of the desire to get The Avengers off the ground, and create possibilities for crossovers. Unlike most other comic adaptations, especially going back a few years, this is a franchise fighting the uphill battle of its main character not having a host of fans to claim. Despite that stumbling block, the first film was one of the better action films to come along in a while.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier does a lot of things very well, and infuses new twists on developing the character, but it shrugs off much of what made the first film so interesting and entertaining in favor of spectacle, and the result is a film that isn’t terrible, »
