Looks like Storybrooke is getting a bit of a makeover...a Frozen makeover. Check out these two teasers for season four of ABC's Once Upon a Time as the town reacts to its newest arrival: Elsa , aka The Ice Queen.
The two new movies available on streaming video this week aren't the biggest titles, but they're both Certified Fresh. In addition, we've got a number of classics and old favorites newly added to Netflix, including an iconic jailbreak movie, the Robin Williams film that earned him his first Oscar nod, a Robert Redford Best Picture-winner, and a little movie about a Jamaican bobsled team that went on to attract a huge fanbase. Read on for details.
This week on home video, we've got a number of fairly decent smaller films and a handful of popular TV shows, but we kick things off with a sports drama directed by Ivan Reitman and starring Kevin Costner. Then, for all of you horror buffs getting ready for Halloween, Universal is releasing a number of collections dedicated to their iconic monster lineup, including a 30-film set that gathers some of the best stuff in one place. Read on for details.
This weekend, Labor Day brought an end to another summer movie season on a slow note with the Marvel overachiever Guardians of the Galaxy leading the way again grossing an estimated $22.2M over the long Friday-to-Monday holiday weekend in its fifth frame. Three of those frames were spent at number one.
This week's Ketchup, coming to you just before the Labor Day weekend, covers what was admittedly sort of a slow week in movie development news. Included in the mix are stories involving Steve Carell, Matthew McConaughey and Joaquin Phoenix, and the James Bond, King Arthur, Underworld, and Alvin and the Chipmunks franchises.
On screen, John Hawkes is something of a chameleon, looking completely at home on the dusty, swear-heavy roads of Deadwood, the raging seas of The Perfect Storm, the snowy fields of Winter's Bone, or the emotionally complicated modern world of Me You and Everyone We Know. His beginnings in a rural community, as he points out a couple of times in this interview, got him used to the certain kinds of classic films that were readily available to him, and later set him up for some memorable experiences with different kinds of art. His list has both, and he would like for it to be known that he could easily pick five completely different films if I were to return in five more minutes and ask again, which I would have happily done.
Richard Lewis dropped in for another bonus interview show this week. Grae Drake and Sarah Ricard interviewed the legendary comedian about his new DVD set Bundle of Nerves. Lewis talks about how this new DVD is truly a labor of love, and why the specific performances he included are so important to him. (Note to listeners: Sarah's audio drops out after a while, but we wanted to share this show with you anyway.)
This week, Christy breaks down the hilariously funny paranormal investigators in the re-release of Ghostbusters, and on DVD the blind date romcom Blended and the animated musical Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return.
