I feel like the Peaky Blinders thing has past me by. It’s one of those shows that I’ve been meaning to watch, with Season 5 coming to Netflix on October 4th, this may be the perfect weekend in immerse myself in this world of London Gangsters.
Ok, I’ve never stated this publicly but I LOVE WB’s Cinderella movies. I’m a romantic at heart and the cheesier the story the better, which explains my love of Christmas movies. So here you combine Christmas Rom-Com with the Cinderella Story franchise and it’s an instant win for me. A Cinderella Story: A Christmas Wish is the 5 the fifth movie in Warner Brother’s Cinderella Franchise which has featured Hilary Duff, Selena Gomez and Lucy Hale. Wait, 5th? There’s a 4th movie out there that I somehow missed. Need to look this up stat!
Update – I wasn’t kidding about watching the 4th movie – A Cinderella Story: If The Shoe Fits. My god, the horror. The first 3 movies are like Citizen Kane to this dreck. Turned it off after 20 minutes. It’s unwatchable. Here’s hoping the series is returned to form with the upcoming installment.
Three decades, three women, one house. WHY WOMEN KILL is a dark comedy created by Marc Cherry (Desperate Housewives, Devious Maids) detailing the lives of three women – a housewife in the 60s, a socialite in the 80s, and a lawyer in 2019. They deal with infidelity in their marriage. The series looks into how roles of women have changed, but their reaction to betrayal has not.

It premieres on CBS All Access on August 15.
Director Gurinder Chadha has brought the music of the Boss, Bruce Springsteen, and created a wonderful film that tells an amazing story in the upcoming film Blinded by the Light. Inspired by the true story of journalist Sarfraz Manzoor, this wonderful film tells the tale of Javed, a British teen of Pakistani descent, who discovers the world outside his family life and 1980’s hometown through the music of Bruce Springsteen. I sat with Ms. Chadha to talk about meeting Bruce and bringing Manzoor’s story to the big screen.
Reboots are sweeping Hollywood, but networks are overlooking some of the best shows from yesteryear. Here are five TV show reboots that need to happen already! In the last few years, we’ve seen TV show reboots of some of the greatest TV shows of all time. We’ve seen remakes of Charmed, Macguyver, and even Magnum P.I. While remakes aren’t always successful, there are some that absolutely have to be done.
See what I did with that headline? I’m a genius. It’s August so that means we’re due a bunch of announcements regarding Universal Studio’s annual Halloween Horror Nights festivities and houses. It’s one of the park’s biggest events of the year and they usually go all out. Their first announcement, at least that I’ve seen, is US is getting it’s own House. I lie, I believe I saw an announcement a few months back that Stranger Things and Ghostbusters is also getting houses this year. I’m not a huge fan of haunted houses because I’m a little scardy cat, but Universal Studios pulls out all the stops for this annual October event. Official press release is below.
Is there a way I can make the iconic Beverly Hills 90210 theme in words – ddddd, clap, clap… Nah, that doesn’t work. Brenda! Ok, I’m in a weird mood as I write this quick review of Beverly Hills 90210 or as the cool kids call it BH90210. What the hell is this show? It’s not a reboot, it’s not a mockumentaray, it’s not even and it’s not even a reality show. It’s one of the weirdest things I’ve seen and after I got over the initial shock of it, I kind of love it. Beverly Hills 90210 airs on the Fox Networks starting this week.

Today, Universal Studios announced a brand new theme park is coming to Orlando in 2022. The announcement was about as bland as an announcement like this could be and there were no details. For the life of me can’t think of any Universal Studios Properties that could even make up a park like this. With that said, Universal Orlando is one of my favorite theme parks in the world and I will always prefer it over Disney World. I’m hopeful this park will be big, expansive and exciting. The official press release is below.
What up home sickles. I hate myself, even though I per-ordered the 4K UHD version of Avengers: Endgame, I couldn’t help myself. I still purchased the 4K UHD version on Vudu. I checked out all the extra features and spot checked the Video and Audio Quality. The full video review is below along with some clips. I will have a full 4K UHD Review for you in a few weeks. Problem with doing reviews of streaming quality is, it’s very much dependent on the quality of your internet connection. So my experience streaming this may be different than yours.
