Gotham Review: A Solid Return in “How The Riddler Got His Name”

by Jeff Fountainon April 25, 2017
The Riddler, The Court of Owls, Bruce’s doppelganger…this episode did indeed touch on a lot of important points in the crazy world of Gotham. However, in the end, the episode was all about Cory Michael Smith and his amazing work as Edward Nigma and his birth into The Riddler. Gotham has been building to this […]

Into the Badlands Review: Things Begin To Move Full Circle in “Leopard Stalks Through Snow”

by Jeff Fountainon April 23, 2017
It was nice to finally have an episode that touched on all the storylines, moving them along and watching as they slowly began to move towards to each other, at times even overlapping. Even though it’s pretty obvious that some of these characters were going to meet again, either as friends or enemies, it has […]


Into the Badlands Review: All Paths Lead to Quinn in “Monkey Leaps Through Mist”

by Jeff Fountainon April 17, 2017
After having last week off, it was good to see Sunny back in action in an episode that had some very dark moments. While it showed just how brutal life can be outside of the Badlands (life inside is not exactly a ray of sunshine, either) it gave Sunny a chance to drag himself out […]

Into the Badlands Review: Family and Chaos in “Palm of the Iron Fox”

by Jeff Fountainon April 10, 2017
With so much focus on Sunny and Bajie to start the season, it was nice to see the show put them aside, if only for an episode, and concentrate on some developing storylines that really needed our attention. Specifically, checking in on The Widow and Waldo to see what they have up their collective sleeves […]


Movie Review: “Caught” is a Home Invasion Movie with a Creepy Twist

by Jeff Fountainon April 5, 2017
To be honest, home invasion movies have become rather pedestrian in the last few years, with a few critical and commercial hits spawning far too many inferior copies. However, every now and again a movie breaks out of the regular mold and gives us something a little different, and that’s exactly what happened with “Caught”. […]

Into the Badlands Review: Fights, Friends and Fun Continue in “Red Sun, Silver Moon”

by Jeff Fountainon April 3, 2017
As the landscape for season two begins to unfold, it is clear that wars are brewing on many fronts. The decision to have characters leave the Badlands, while risky, is turning out to be a great move, allowing more character development amid numerous storylines. In “Red Sun, Silver Moon” there are characters looking for change […]

The Walking Dead Review: Finally, War is here in “The First Day of the Rest of Your Life”

by Jeff Fountainon April 3, 2017
After a messy first eight episodes, followed by eight more building to the war with the Saviors, season seven felt like it really lost its way. Sure, the first episode was explosive (sorry) and last night’s finale was good fun, but they were like book ends on a season that had too many episodes that […]


Movie Review: “Brackenmore” Is More Than Just a Pretty Picture

by Jeff Fountainon April 2, 2017
It can be very tricky making a movie that has the slow burn approach to storytelling. You have to keep the audience interested while at the same have a great payoff in the end that has them satisfied as they walk out of the theater. I’m happy to say that minus a few missteps, “Brackenmore” […]

Arrow Review: Bad Habits Return in the Uneven but Entertaining Episode “Disbanded”

by Jeff Fountainon March 30, 2017
After last week’s excellent episode I was very curious how Arrow would come back this week. I didn’t expect the same kind of high-quality episode but still hoped they would continue on the same path. The good news is, they did indeed follow the path they have laid out, forcing Oliver to take a long and […]
