on Monday, February 4, 2013
In this episode, David tries to shake off the cold weather (and a head cold) by looking at the classic summer vacation comedy The Great Outdoors starring Dan Aykroyd and John Candy. This episode includes a brief look at the careers of Aykroyd and Candy, along with legendary writer-producer-director John Hughes, who wrote the screenplay.
How The Killing Joke ruined Batgirl
“Choosing such a horrifying image as a celebration is in incredibly poor taste. It comes across as a glorification of Batgirl’s humiliation and degradation.”Predestination (2014)
“Sci-fi fans looking for boilerplate action might be bored by the long stretches of exposition and introspection, but that’s precisely what makes the movie memorable.”Good Morning, Vietnam (1987)
In tribute to the late, great Robin Williams, the DVD Shelf reviews the 1987 comedic war drama Good Morning, Vietnam, which loosely tells the story of Airman Adrian Cronauer, who spent some time as a morning radio DJ over in Vietnam during the mid '60s and took it upon himself to bring a taste of home to the American soldiers stationed in the country by providing them with lively broadcasts and playing the day’s most popular music.Gene Roddenberry’s Andromeda, AKA Star Trek: Voyager with Captain Hercules
“Alas, all of this development was rendered moot afterward. This is because, like Star Trek: Voyager, Andromeda basically jettisoned its premise by its second season and was content with simply being an action show, with an ineffectual captain to boot.”Twilight Zone: The Movie (1983)
David enters another dimension, not only of sight and sound but of mind, to review the 1983 anthology film Twilight Zone: The Movie, featuring four separate stories brought to life by four of the era’s most sought-after filmmakers, including Steven Spielberg and John Landis. He also briefly touches on the history of the classic TV series and its legendary creator, Rod Serling.Marvel’s Agent Carter: a halftime report
“But just as its protagonist is determined to avoid being defined as ‘Captain America’s girlfriend’, the show also moves on and does its own thing.”
