Television series Rod Lott
Sins and sons — those are the driving themes for the sixth season of Dexter,
arguably the anchor of the Showtime cable network. Dexter Morgan
(Michael C. Hall in his Golden Globe-winning role) is a Miami Metro PD
forensics analyst who moonlights as a serial killer of serial killers.
Horror Rod Lott
Perhaps best known for being the bad guy of the early '90s blockbusters Patriot Games and Sleeping with the Enemy,
Patrick Bergin must be the king of literary adaptation also-rans. He
played Robin Hood in 1991 film that was denied a theatrical release
because Kevin Costner's Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves sewed that all up. He's played Dracula … but in a made-for-TV movie, not a Francis Ford Coppola spectacle.
Western Rod Lott
Perhaps to horn in on the expected Django Unchained action, Warner Archive has dug into its vaults to give a spaghetti Western a second helping of viewers. It found a unlikely offering in Dollar for the Dead, a 1988, made-for-cable effort starring Emilio Estevez. You could look at it like a Young Guns spin-off if you wish.
Babes, bullets and ... well, that about covers it.
Television series Rod Lott Femme Fatales is unlike any previous Skinemax
Cinemax adult series in that the nudity, while plentiful, isn’t the
reason for its being and, therefore, isn’t dreadfully boring like those others — yes,
you, Emmanuelle in Space. If you harbor an equal love for pulp fiction and dangerous curves, the 13 episodes that make up the premiere season’s three-disc set should provide plenty of no-brain, all-bod entertainment.
The one-time ‘Nutty Professor’ just wants to be loved. Is that so wrong? Well, now that you mentioned it ...
Documentary Rod Lott
There's a long-standing joke about Jerry Lewis being loved by the French, and to paraphrase The Simpsons, it’s funny ’cuz it’s true. We even see the adulation — then, now — in Method to the Madness of Jerry Lewis, a two-hour documentary about the man whom one celebrity admirer calls “The Beatles of movie comedy.”
Documentary Rod Lott
Don’t feel stupid: I didn’t know who Ralph Zavadil was, either. After
all, we can’t be faulted for living in Oklahoma City instead of Ontario,
Canada. Ultimately, it makes no difference, because Beauty Day,
the documentary about the man, is a fun viewing nonetheless. That’s
because there’s something about watching stunts of bodily harm that
holds universal appeal.
It’s no mystery: ‘Nightfall’ is a superlative thriller.
Thriller Rod Lott
As Simon Lam gets older, he gets better. The veteran actor has appeared in such in seminal HK action films of the 1990s as Once Upon a Time in China (opposite Jet Li) and Bullet in the Head (directed by John Woo); in the aughts, he graced audience and critical favorites Election and Ip Man.
