Aging rock artist David Tangier’s (Harley Di Nardo) sense of identity is all but destroyed as he works cutting hair to provide a comfortable life for himself and his wife. His sound and age bind him to the rock of the 2000s when his band Katatonic Spin ruled the scene. David cannot tolerate that he has become a has-been. Taking one last long shot at maintaining his integrity, David sets out to organize the follow-up album that he never had the chance to make.

I was pleasantly surprised by Dead Envy. Most movies I have the pleasure of reviewing I try to go in with low expectations so I won’t be disappointed. Well, Dead Envy succeeded my expectations in all aspects. The acting, the storyline, the quality, even the soundtrack was pretty solid… you won’t hear many negatives (if any at all) from me. I really enjoyed how Adam Reeser portrayed the psycho-obsessed fan. He played the role great and honestly don’t think I could picture as anything else after this one. Harley Di Nardo also killed it with his role of washed-up musician, David, still trying to follow his dream. I don’t see this as a theatrical movie, but absolutely could see it being on TV or Netflix. Great movie for steaming. If you come across Dead Envy on one of those outlets, tune it. I think you’ll enjoy it.

‘Galaxy Quest’ Being Developed for Television at Paramount


Deadline is reporting that Paramount Television is developing a small screen version of their film Galaxy Quest with Robert Gordon, the original writer of the film, to provide the script for the pilot. Gordon is also set as executive produce the series along with the original director Dean Parisot and producer Mark Johnson.

The film centered around the cast of a highly popular sci-fi adventure series “Galaxy Quest” which was canceled. Actors Jason Nesmith (Tim Allen), Gwen DeMarco (Sigourney Weaver), Sir Alexander Dane (Alan Rickman), Tommy Webber (Daryl Mitchell) and Fred Kwan (Tony Shalhoub) continue their careers by making appearances at sci-fi conventions and store openings in costume and character. They are wallowing in despair and at each other’s throats until aliens known as Thermians arrive and, having mistaken the series for fact and consequently modeling their entire culture around it, take them into space to save them from the genocidal General Sarris and his armada.

No word on if any of the original cast would return. More as it becomes available

Official: ‘The X-Files’ is Returning to Fox

x-filesAfter weeks of news regarding a revival of the hit Fox TV show, today comes the official announcement that we’ve all been waiting for, The X-Files is back! The revival will consist of a six-episode event series which will be helmed by creator/executive producer Chris Carter with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson returning as FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.

Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen and CEO of Fox Television Group and Chris Carter, creator of the show, made the announcement with production set to begin in summer 2015.

“I think of it as a 13-year commercial break,” said Carter “The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.”

“We had the privilege of working with Chris on all nine seasons of The X-Files – one of the most rewarding creative experiences of our careers – and we couldn’t be more excited to explore that incredible world with him again,” added Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen and CEOs of Fox Television Group. “The X-Files was not only a seminal show for both the studio and the network, it was a worldwide phenomenon that shaped pop culture – yet remained a true gem for the legions of fans who embraced it from the beginning. Few shows on television have drawn such dedicated fans as The X-Files, and we’re ecstatic to give them the next thrilling chapter of Mulder and Scully they’ve been waiting for.”

The X-Files originally premiered in September 1993.  Over the course of its nine-season run, the influential series grew from sci-fi cult favorite to mainstream hit. The show, which earned 16 Emmy Awards, five Golden Globes and a Peabody Award, follows FBI special agents Scully (Anderson) and Mulder (Duchovny) as they investigate unexplained cases – “X-Files” – for which the only answers involve paranormal phenomena.

Further details are being kept secret and the release date is being held released at a later date.


Jada Pinkett Smith Not Returning for Season 2 of ‘Gotham’


Well now this is a shocking development. During her visit to “Live with Kelly and Michael” on Friday, actress Jada Pinkett Smith dropped a bombshell about her future on the hit Fox show “Gotham.” When asked about her return for a second season, the actress responded:

“I don’t think so, no,” Smith said. “I signed for a year and the year is up.”

Whoa?! Is this the end of Fish Mooney?! With five episodes left in season one, I guess we will find out sooner than later. But one thing’s for sure, the actress believes there’s a lot more in the cards for season one:

“There are some great things coming ahead on ‘Gotham,’” Smith stated, “Believe you me. There’s a lot of good stuff coming.”
