A few days ago, we posted a trailer for a movie called Girls Trip – the tale of four women going on a vacation trip together and getting into all kinds of mischief. It was an okay trailer – there were a few laughs – but, truth to tell, it felt a little weak. Turns […]

Gotham Gets Stranger (You See What I Did There, Right?)!
As Gotham (FOX, Mondays, 8/7C) steams toward the end of its second season, it has not fallen into bad comics goofiness like it did last year. Instead, it’s gotten darker and more twisted – we’ve even caught a glimpse of Killer Croc (or a reasonable facsimile thereof) in the dying moments of last week’s ep […]
Magic Mike XXL: Magic Mike Med. More Like!
2012’s Magic Mike was a left field smash loosely based on Channing Tatum’s experiences as a ‘male entertainer.’ It was smart, witty and filled with intriguing characters – not to mention some amazing dancing.

Dark(er) Times Coming For Gotham!
When Gotham (FOX, Mondays, 9/8C) went on its winter hiatus, things were looking grim – Alfred in hospital; the possibility of a hit put out on Bruce Wayne, Barbara seeing Jim Gordon kissing Dr. Leslie Thompkins… Now FOX has released a teaser for the remainder of Gotham’s debut season and, no surprise, things are looking […]
We Have Not Seen The Last of Fish Mooney – Jada Pinkett-Smith on Gotham!
Jada Pinkett-Smith is in the enviable/unenviable position of playing the only major character on FOX’s Gotham (Mondays, 8/7C) that is not from the Batverse. That’s unenviable because there’s absolutely reference for her in preparing for the role, but enviable because she has been able to create her own character (with series creator Bruno Heller and […]
Gotham: Surprise! Murder In Arkham Asylum!

Gotham–A Four-Part Look Behind The Scenes!
FOX’s Gotham is one of the most anticipated new shows the Fall 2014 season. It’s the story of James Gordon’s rise through the ranks of the Gotham Police Department during the time between the murders of Thomas and Martha Wayne and the appearance of Batman. To get the details right and make this darker, fictional […]
Video: Gotham–What Inspires the Evolution of Villains?
One of the more intriguing aspects of Fox’s Gotham will be getting to see the evolution of some of the Caped Crusader’s most famous villains – crime boss Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith), The Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) and Selina Kyle/Catwoman (Camren Bicondova). Fox has released a teaser featuring the trio of baddies, narrated by […]
