In the second part of EM’s “The Last Black Man in San Francisco” INTERVIEWS, I sat down with two more stars of this amazing film. Rob Morgan plays James Sr., the father of Jimmie played by Jimmie Fails and Tichina Arnold who plays Jimmie’s aunt Wanda. And away we go!
Dean on the Scene with an exclusive interview with the director and star of the upcoming film “The Last Black Man in San Francisco”. Jimmie Fails dreams of reclaiming the Victorian home his grandfather built in the heart of San Francisco. Joining me to talk about this new A24 film that opens in DC Friday is director, producer Joe Talbot and screenwriter and star Jimmie Fails!
Ralph on the Road is a mini-series of segments for Lifetime’s morning talk show, The Balancing Act, created by BrandStar. For the past 11 years, The Balancing Act has been a daily morning show for today’s on-the-go, modern women to help balance and enrich her everyday life.
One of the most popular horror films of 2019, Jordan Peele’s US starring Academy Award® winner Lupita Nyong’o (Black Panther, 12 Years a Slave), Winston Duke (Black Panther), Emmy® winner Elisabeth Moss (“The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Mad Men”) and Tim Heidecker (The Comedy, “Tim & Eric’s Bedtime Stories”) hits home on Digital June 4th and the tasty physical media June 18th. Ok, the whole two week delay between Digital and Physical releases really ticks me off and is just irritating. Check out the official press release to see all the tasty extras.
DC Universe is not playing around, if you haven’t checked out the service, run, don’t walk. After the critical success of their wonderfully weird Doom Patrol, they are going obscure again with the classic DC series Swamp Thing. From the opening sequence to the end of the 2nd episode I was hooked. There’s just something wonderfully creepy and cinematic about the unique viewing experience. Swamp Thing launches on the DC Universe App, May 31st.
The best TV movies seem to happen by accident. It is sad to see soulless TV movies that simply exist to spend up to an allocated budget. Some of the best TV movies have had such an impact that not only did they achieve cult status, but they also cemented a brand that still lives to this day. (Ed Note, how the writer of this article forgot V – The Miniseries is beyond Me).
Warner Home Entertainment announced Arrow Season 7 will hit Blu-ray on August 20th and the Flash Season 5 will arrive a week later. Both sets will include the full 3 episode Elseworlds crossover and include a boatload of extras including tons of featurettes, episode specific commentaries, a preview of the upcoming Crisis event and digital code (nothing drives me crazier than TV Series that don’t include the digital copy). Both sets will retail for $45 bucks in the US. Not a bad price but both shows were just $10 on Apple iTunes last week.
May 19, 2019 marked the season finale of HBO’s hit series Game Of Thrones. As the sixth episode of season 8, Game Of Thrones fans could only surmise what dreadful, or perhaps joyous, surprises awaited them. Depends on how you look at it. Spoilers ahead . . .
I don’t talk about comic books as much as I should on this site, but that’s going to change, I have review access for a few comic book companies now so expect more reviews soon. Sadly DC isn’t one of those companies which makes covering them hard because you all know I don’t like to just regurgitate press releases. Unlike Marvel at least DC gives me a little more meat to work with.
With that said DC has released all the initial covers for their upcoming Year of the Villain Event and they look quite tasty. If I can convince DC to give me some books, I will review every one of these issues. I’ve hated the last few DC Events because they were all basically Injustice clones. This event excites me because its back to Super Heroes vs. you know Villains. Not evil clones of themselves. Check out the official Press Release and Cover Gallery.
Man, I wish I still lived in LA and not this backwaters hole in Florida. It’s a nice backwaters hole, but nothing exciting happens in Jacksonville. Can I put a sad face emoji in a news article? Is that professional?
MTV Movie and TV Awards has announced their performance line up and I’ll admit I don’t know who most of these people are, but I love Macklemore and would consider flying out to LA just to get a chance to meet and talk to him. Not to mention the Red Carpet will probably be insane. Even though I can’t be there, unless MTV pays for me (like that will happen), I plan on having someone out there repping the EM machine. Hosted by “Shazam!” star Zachary Levi, the MTV Movie & TV Awards air Monday, June 17 at 9:00 PM ET/PT. Full press release below.
What up people? One of my favorite Batman stories, Batman: Hush is finally coming to glorious 4K UHD on August 13th, my Birthday month so Warner Home Video if you are listening, I doubt you are, my Birthday. Yep, it’s my birthday month. Just saying, it hits digital July 20th, right in the middle of SDCC. So you know what this means? They are definitely having a screening of this movie during San Diego Comic Con. I really hate that digital and physical releases aren’t day and date anymore, drives me NUTS. I won’t be buying a digital version of this because it’ll be available on DCUniverse soon after release, however, I love my physical media. Press release, details and trailer below.
