The Dead Zone (Television Series)

I had no intention of watching this entire series since it was on for six seasons. Then, I thought I would watch a couple episodes to see if it was interesting at all. Next thing I knew, it was my background television for a few weeks....

The Dead Zone (1983 Movie)

Even though this movie had the same major plot points as the book, it felt really disjointed going from one storyline to another....

The Dead Zone (Book)

There were parts of this book that I really enjoyed and other parts that I feel that if I had read this earlier in my life, I might have been bored with, but due to the time I read it, I was hooked....

The Long Walk

After reading four Bachman stories (Rage, The Running Man, Roadwork), this one is my favorite. It is so dreary with no hope, and yet, I really enjoyed it....

Summer Movies: Week of May 4, 2018

The main movie coming out this week is a remake of Overboard, which I find very disappointing because I loved the original. Tully is from the same writer as Juno and it looks really smart and funny while also having a great cast. I was excited about Bad Samaritan because it stars David...

Spring TV: True Story Dramas

Both of these true story dramas are getting decent reviews with The Terror getting the better of the two with some great action sequences and an excellent cast. Trust has also received positive reviews, mostly for Brendan Fraser who plays a minor character, but critics wish he was in it more....

Spring TV: True Crime

If you are interested in the true crime genre, Marcia Clark Investigates The First 48 should be right up your alley. I feel like if it was on Netflix, it would have more buzz around it. In Ice Cold Blood is more sensationalized and a way for Ice-T to make some...
