She-Ra Netflix 02

Growing up in the early to mid 1980s one thing was for sure, the cartoons were epic! Nothing was better than coming home from school right in time to watch the 2-hour block of cartoons: She-Ra, He-Man, Thundercats, and Voltron. Now just as I grew up with those classic shows, my kids get to grow with the latest incarnations thanks to Netflix. Last week on November 13th, season one of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power hit the streaming service. Each of the 13 episodes is 24 minutes long, mirroring a typical weekday afternoon cartoon minus commercials.

NYCC 2018 Interview: Shudder’s Joe Bob Briggs

Joe Bob Briggs interview

New York Comic-Con caters to those of every genre of geekdom. Horror fans were not left out this year as Joe Bob Briggs, Greg Nicotero, and Sam Zimmerman were there Thursday to represent Shudder at their panel previewing upcoming shows on the streaming service. Horror fans have known the name Joe Bob Briggs for many years. I first encountered him while watching cable TV at my grandparents’ house on the Briggs-hosted MonsterVision on TNT, after a run on The Movie Channel. Specializing in exploitation and B-level horror films and using his infamous rating system of “Drive-in Totals” (Blood, Breasts, and Beasts), Briggs became a staple with horror fans anywhere. Earlier this year, Shudder and parent company AMC brought him back to do one last all-nighter, “Joe Bob’s Last Drive-In.” The event was so popular it literally broke Shudder and after going viral, Briggs was asked back for more specials later this year. We had a chance to speak with Briggs at NYCC on Thursday afternoon during a press roundtable.

Movie Review: Best F(r)iends Volume 1

Best F(r)iends Volume 1 Tommy Wiseau

Best F(r)iends
Written by Greg Sestero
Directed by Justin MacGregor
Starring Tommy Wiseau, Greg Sestero, Kristen StephensonPino, Vince Jolivette, Paul Scheer, Rick Edwards
Lionsgate | Rated R
Release date (Digital & OnDemand): September 25, 2018

Fifteen years ago, a cult classic of epic proportions was born. Tommy Wiseau wrote, directed, produced, and starred in The Room, a film that would earn the moniker of Best Bad Movie of all time. Thanks to his co-star and friend Greg Sestero’s 2013 memoir The Disaster Artist and the James Franco Oscar-nominated film of the same name, Wiseau and Sestero have enjoyed a career resurgence. Their on-screen reunion takes place in the new film saga Best F(r)iends, written by Sestero and directed by Justin MacGregor.

Best F(r)iends will inevitably be compared to The Room due to Sestero and Wiseau’s involvement. However, as a film it is much better, with a cohesive plot, well-defined characters, and genuinely engaging interactions. It does feature some truly bizarre and original moments, and thanks to Wiseau’s off-beat acting style, there is a lot of humor, both intended and not. While I don’t think Best F(r)iends will garner the reputation and midnight-movie following of The Room, fans of the actors and that film will not be disappointed.

Disney Streaming Service To Be Called Disney Play; Will Be Cheaper Than Netflix

Walt Disney Studios logo - Disney Play

If you are looking for Disney content on streaming services, you are most likely going to find it either on Hulu or Netflix. At least right now. But that will all change come 2019, when the mega studio will launch its own streaming service that will have not only its back catalog of films, but also new and original content like live-action versions of Lady and The Tramp and a new Star Wars television show.

The upcoming service has been unnamed for almost two years since it was announced in 2017. But now, we can refer to it as Disney Play. And for those who are wondering about pricing, there is also some very good news. According to a new report, it will be cheaper than Netflix. More on the story here below.

Movie Review: Prodigy

Prodigy (2017) movie review

Prodigy
Blu-ray | Digital
Directed Alex Haughey, Brian Vidal
Written by Alex Haughey, Brian Vidal
Starring Savannah Liles, Richard Neil, Jolene Andersen, Emilio Palame, David Linski, Harvey Q. Johnson, Aral Gribble
Release Date: March 13, 2018

Prodigy opens with stock video camera footage of a family throughout the years. The final shot from this recording is a young girl in a park with a book far too large for her age, as she looks up into the camera…it’s a rather haunting image and a good omen of things to come.

Some of my favorite films are contained thrillers, using only one or few locations to turn up the tension and suspense. Alfred Hitchcock’s Rope is a murder mystery all shot in one apartment. Alex Garland’s Ex Machina is almost entirely set in the expansively home of its eccentric billionaire lead character. Even Joel Schumacher’s Phone Booth pulses with intensity despite the bulk of screen time spent in the titular cubicle. Joining the ranks of these is Prodigy, written and directed by Alex Haughey and Brian Vidal. Their film is a contained thriller that spends much of its 75 minute run time on a quiet, yet intense conversation between a therapist and a patient, a young girl in a straitjacket.
