The Expendables In a 4K Combo Pack

I have a nice 4K Oled TV and just purchased the new Sony UHD Player so I’m always on the lookout for new 4K content. The problem is most 4K UHD Movies are outrageously expensive at $30.00. Prices are slowly dropping. The Expendables 1 and 2 UHD Combo Pack will be on 4K, March 2nd for a more reasonable $22.00.

Visit the Real La La Land Cafe!

I love a bit of innovative marketing and corporate synergy as much as the next person. In celebration of this year’s award season, Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood will spotlight Lionsgate’s Oscar nominated film, La La Land, as a limited addition to the tour. From Feb. 18 to March 6, 2017, guests can find themselves in a scene from the film as they step onto the ‘Café Sur Le Lot,’ coffee shop set, which has been carefully reconstructed. I’m actually going to be in LA next month for Wondercon and can’t wait to see this in person.

Movie Review: Lego Batman Movie Gets Old. Michelle’s Review!

I think I may be the only person in the universe who has never understood the fascination with Legos and didn’t particularly like The Lego Movie. I appreciated the humor in it, but ultimately it falls apart and doesn’t work as a movie. The same thing happens again with The Lego Batman Movie. It starts off great, the humor is solid and it manages to walk that line of working for both kids and adults. However, somewhere along the line the film just starts to drag, the jokes and the story become repetitive and the stuff with Batgirl and Bruce Wayne, just god awful. Check out the Video review after the break.

TV Review: Legion A Surreal, Abstract Take of Super Heroes, Michelle’s Take

LEGION — “Chapter 1” (Airs Wednesday, February 8, 10:00 pm/ep) — Pictured: Dan Stevens as David Haller. CR: Chris Large/FX

FX Network finally brings honest to god Marvel mutants to television in their latest project – Legion, which premieres February 8th. I generally love FX programming. They aren’t afraid to push the envelope and go off kilter. The problem with FX shows is they all start very slow and usually take 3 or 4 episodes before they manage to suck you in. They require a lot of patience before things start paying off. Its intellectual television disguised as popcorn entertainment. I know this is a weird statement but work with me.

Preview: The 100 Season 4 Episode 2

I broke down and watched the season 4 premiere of The 100. I have to say, other than the Bellarke garbage, I thought the episode was pretty good. They have a long way to go to repair the damage Season 3 caused, but it was a good premiere. I’m going to be recapping this season. I’m really hoping this entire season isn’t all about them solving the nuclear meltdown problem. I think it’ll most likely be wrapped up by Episode 7. I don’t see how they can sustain the plot for a full season. I posted my recap last week and you can check out my new video recaps on YouTube now. Bare with me while I get used to this youtubing thing.  Check out the photos for Episode 2 below. Looks like Abby is going to throw Kane aside and become a Grounder pounder.

TV Review: APB A Bland Cop Show with Political Agenda

What happens when a tech billionaire turns his attention to fighting crime? We get Batman. However, Fox can’t use that character so they gave us Gotham. I’m digressing fast, where was I? Right, billionaire fighting crime. We get Fox’s latest television show APB. This show is every conservative’s wet dream; it basically advocates the full privatization of the police. Did no one see Robocop? There’s even a cop named Murphy. APB, Premieres Monday, Feb 6 at 9pm.

TV Review: 24 Legacy: Lacks Urgency

24: LEGACY: Corey Hawkins in the “2:00 PM-3:00 PM” episode of 24: LEGACY airing Saturday, Feb. 18 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. ©2017 Fox Broadcasting Co. Cr: Guy D’Alema/FOX

For years its been threatened, but now we finally have a Jack Bauer free 24. Fans never asked for this, it was always the Producers and Kiefer Southernland’s goal/dream to be able to continue 24 without him having to be involved – on camera. I would imagine it’s a pretty intense role to play. So, Kiefer’s desire to get out is understandable. So now we have another attempt to revive 24 with 24 Legacy. Only we don’t get 24 hours to save the world, it’s only 12. 24: Legacy premieres Sunday, February 5th after the Superbowl and will air Monday nights.

The 100 Season 4 – Echoes Recap, Turn the Page, Forget the Past?

As Eminem once sang guess whose back? I had no intentions of watching or recapping The 100 again this season, but even though the show enrages me, it’s nice writing about something that I’m actually passionate about. I can’t help it. There was a lot more good than bad going on in the season premiere.

Interview: The 100’s Eliza Taylor and Jason Rothman have words with Michelle!

Anyone who follows my ramblings know how much I absolutely loved the first two seasons of The 100 on The CW. You also probably followed my slow decent into madness during my weekly recaps of S3. I never believed that “rage quitting” was a real thing until The 100. It’s a strange feeling, being so passionate about something that it when it goes off the rails it literally enrages you enough to just saying “fuck it, I’m out.” I normally quit shows when I no longer care and am ambivalent.

This feels different, I know the cast and I still love the show and want to give S4 a chance but I know it’s going to drive me BatS crazy. I had the opportunity to talk to the show’s creator Jason Rothenberg and star Eliza Taylor and you all know I have no filter, so you can guess how it went. The 100 Season 4 premieres this week on The CW. Jason did tell Eliza to watch out for me, because I ask tough questions.
