New from Disney – Moana – In theaters November 2016



A new Disney film is setting sail and landing in theaters on November 23, 2016 called Moana.

Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world voyaged across the vast South Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped – and no one today knows why. From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes Moana, a sweeping, CG-animated adventure about a spirited teenager who sails out on a daring mission to prove herself a master wayfinder and fulfill her ancestors’ unfinished quest. During her journey, Moana (voice of Auli’i Cravalho) meets the once-mighty demi-god Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), and together, they traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous fiery creatures and impossible odds. Directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, The Princess & the Frog), and produced by Osnat Shurer (Lifted, One Man Band).

The voice of Moana was recently casted. I think the young lady (Auli’i Cravalho) looks a lot like Moana too. You can check out her story and the unique way Disney offered the part of Moana in the video below.

Don’t forget to “like” Moana on Facebook too.

American Horror Story: Freak Show – now available on Blu-ray/DVD


American Horror Story Freak Show

Did you watch the first episode of the latest installment to the American Horror Story franchise, Hotel, yet? It aired Wednesday night on FX. If you haven’t watched it yet, be forewarned, it’s darker, more sinister than it’s predecessors and there is A LOT more sex, nudity and gore. In fact, I was shocked at how much sex and nudity there was.

American Horror Story started several years ago. Instead of continuing the story line with each new season, American Horror Story comes up with an entirely different story line. Some of the main cast has stayed on through most seasons, but their roles are entirely different.

American Horror Story has had four seasons thus far – Murder House, Asylum, Coven and Freak Show. Hotel is their newest installment.

This season is the first season without Jessica Lange. Her replacement is none other than Stefani Germanotta, better known as “Lady Gaga.”

Jessica Lange is one of the last people I would picture in a series like American Horror Story. It’s hard to picture the same woman from Tootsie, Losing Isaiah and Men Don’t Leave as the cast of characters Jessica has portrayed in the American Horror Story series.

I liked Jessica’s look more in the first season (Murder House) and second season (Asylum). Last season (Freak Show) she looked a bit too “freaky” (pardon the pun).

Here are some of my favorite Jessica Lange looks from the first four seasons of American Horror Story.


Do you have a favorite Jessica Lange look from the American Horror Story franchise? If so, upload your favorite look on social media and use the hashtag #LooksofLange. I’m sure Jessica would love to see her fan’s favorite looks.

The fourth installment of American Horror Story: Freak Show is now available on Blu-ray/DVD.

Freak Show brings back many familiar faces including some new cast members. Freak Show stars Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates, Denis O’Hare, Frances Conroy, Jamie Brewer, Sarah Paulson, Emma Roberts, Angela Bassett, Gabourey Sidibe, Michael Chiklis, Danny Huston, Ben Woolf, Mare Winningham, and Grace Gummer.

Freak Show is about Elsa Mars (Lange), the owner of Fräulein Elsa’s Cabinet of Curiosities, one of that remaining freak shows. The troupe live outside of town in Jupiter, Florida.

The Cabinet of Curiosities performers include the Bearded Lady (Bates), Lobster Hand Boy (Peters), the Strong Man (Chiklis), a three-breasted woman (Basset) and a variety of “freaks.”

Elsa’s latest addition are conjoined twins, Bette and Dot (both roles played by Paulson). Elsa sees the twins as a way of bringing her freak show back to life. She brings the sisters back to live with her and the others.

Bette is thrilled to be there. She feels like she has a home and friends there and that they can be happy there. Dot on the other hand doesn’t trust anyone and feels like they are being exploited for Elsa’s benefit.

Jimmy, the Lobster Hand Boy, falls in love with Bette, making things awkward for Dot.

Meanwhile a scary clown named Twisty is going around town murdering people. The Police suspect its someone from the freak show who is committing the murders and set out of find out who it is and arrest them.

A local mother and son rent out the freak show for the night. The wealthy mother wanted to do something for her spoiled “man-child” son Dandy. Dandy is pleased but when Bette and Dot refused to be bought by him, Dandy has a temper tantrum.

American Horror Story Twisty the Clown

To make Dandy happy his mother mistakenly picks up Twisty the Clown to perform for Dandy. That is when Dandy discovers that it’s Twisty committing the murders, not the freaks. Instead of notifying the Police, Dandy wants to join Twisty and become like him, even if that means killing innocent people.

New people join the troupe who aren’t who they appear to be. They are people from a local museum hoping to acquire dead freak bodies to sell and profit from.

There are so many twists and turns in this installment. Miss a moment and you might get totally thrown off track. Just when you think you know what is going to happen you find out you are wrong.

Freak Show is now available on Blu-ray and DVD for your home viewing enjoyment.

There are a lot of bonus features worth checking out including;

  • Getting Freaky: A Peek Under the Tent – A behind the scenes look at Freak Show as well as interviews with cast and crew.
  • Two Heads are Better Than One – An in-depth look at this seasons freaky characters.
  • Twisty: Behind the Mask of Terror – Don’t watch this if you are afraid of clowns. LOL!
  • Freaklore: The Specter of Edward Mordrake 
  • Extra-Ordinary Artists 
  • Hollywood Freak Show Hollywood Premiere 

This season was freaky (no pun intended), most especially Twisty the Clown. My boss at the time and I used to talk all about Twisty the next day after a new episode aired. He’s sure a creepy clown – especially because he doesn’t say anything.

The character of Dandy was amusing. I couldn’t imagine having a grown man-child as a son. Sometimes I thought he was more creepy than Twisty.

While most of the characters on Freak Show are made up, there are several characters who are real life “freaks” (and I DON’T mean that in an offensive way by any means! They are people just like you and I). See if you can figure out which ones (some are very obvious – and it’s not movie trickery either).

If you are a fan of American Horror Story or just like weird, creepy entertainment, then pick up a copy of American Horror Story: Freak Show where ever Blu-rays and DVDs are sold.

Please note that there is sex, nudity and a lot of graphic violence in this series.

Here is a trailer for your entertainment.

Penny Dreadful: Season Two now available on Blu-ray/DVD


Penny Dreadful Season Two Blu-ray

Now available on Blu-ray and DVD is season two of Showtime’s hit series Penny Dreadful.

Penny Dreadful stars Timothy Dalton, Josh Hartnett, Reeve Carney, Eva Green, Rory Kinnear, Helen McCrory, Billie Piper, Patti LuPone, Danny Sapani and Harry Treadaway.

Penny Dreadful is a soap opera-like series – but not in the way you are used to seeing soap operas. Instead of handsome and debonair men and drop dead gorgeous women, Penny Dreadful stars Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, witches, werewolves and a few other assorted interesting people.

Penny Dreadful is a wicked and dark series. I think it might be an “acquired taste” too. I enjoy the series where as my husband just can’t get into it. Then again I’m more into creepy, odd and usual things than he is.

The series is about explorer Sir Malcolm Murray. His daughter was taken by the city’s creatures. With the help of a physic medium Vanessa and an American gun toting cowboy named Ethan, they go after the supernatural beings that call Victoria London their home.

It’s hard to really get into each episode and the long list of characters if you have never seen the series before. Like a soap opera there are many twists and turns and plenty of new characters popping up here and there. I think that is part of the reason why my husband is not into the series like I am. He hasn’t seen all but two or three episode at best and I think he’s lost. Just like with a soap opera, the first few weeks that you watch it (if you haven’t watched since the beginning) it’s hard to figure out what is going on. Once you are caught up on the various story lines you are able to enjoy and appreciate the show much more.

Penny Dreadful Screen Shot

If you’ve missed the first season, you can still pick up with season two and eventually catch up with the story lines. In fact, season two might be a good starting point because it gives you more backstory to some of the characters.

For those of you who are fans of the series, I think you will enjoy season two better. I found season two better than season one. I think there is more “meat” to this season compared to the first one. It’s as if in season one the show was trying to find it’s “footing” and in season two they worked out all the kinks and are now able to dive into the nitty gritty of the show, if that makes sense?

Penny Dreadful does for Gothic literary characters that Once Upon a Time does for fairy tale characters. Unlike Once Upon a Time, Penny Dreadful is dark, creepy and gory. I think that is why I like it so much – because I love horror movies and the like.

Look for Penny Dreadful: Season Two, where ever Blu-rays/DVDs are sold.

Are you a fan of the series? If so, what is your favorite story line and/or character thus far? Feel free to share your thoughts.

Here is the trailer for season two for your enjoyment.

Move Review: Tremors 5: Bloodlines


Tremors 5 Bloodlines

Now available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download is the sci-fi/horror flick Tremors 5: Bloodlines. 

I have seen both the original Tremors and the second one. I never knew they made a three and four – let along a fifth installment. I’ll have to look them up one day.

Tremors 5: Bloodlines stars Michael Gross and Jamie Kennedy. Gross reprises his role of Burt Gummer from the original from the other Tremors films.

Burt Gummer is the star of his own survival series. He even has his own line of products.

While shooting in the middle of nowhere Burt discovers that his camera man has found another job and his replacement just showed up on a motorcycle. His name is Travis (Jamie Kennedy).

While filming for his series another man shows up out of now where. He tells Burt that an “A$$ Blaster” (the creature from the other films) has been found in Africa and is reaping havoc on the locals. They want Burt to fly to Africa and destroy the beast.


Burt and Travis head off to Africa to track down the beast. To their surprise the beast has evolved and there are actually several of them, including a massive one that attacks from underground. They also discover that the beast has a lair where dozens of eggs have been located. Now it’s up to Burt to not only kill the beasts (as there are several) but also destroy the eggs before they have a chance to hatch.

Will Burt succeed? Will this finally be an end to these creatures? To find out you need to get a copy of Tremors 5: Bloodlines. Look for it where ever movies are sold.

I would not really consider this a horror film, but some people might look at it that way. It could be scary for some people, especially those who don’t like things to jump out at you or scary beasts. Personally I consider this film as a combination of horror and comedy. Jamie Kennedy’s character especially has some funny one liners. I especially love all the little nicknames he gave to Burt’s character.

The creatures are really cool looking, although I could have done without the ones that shoot fire out of their behinds (A$$ Blasters). That is just downright silly. But I guess that adds to the appeal of this film franchise. It’s not meant to be taken seriously – not even a little bit.

The film was predictable at times, but that is OK. It was still entertaining. It also made me want to see the other two films that I missed (Tremors 3 and Tremors 4).


There were some references to other film’s that some might not pick up on like a line similar to one in the movie Die Hard. The kitchen scene is reminiscent of the scene in Jurassic Park (right down to watching the beasts claws tapping on the floor as it walks).

There are some bonus features on the Blu-ray/DVD (not sure about Digital Download).

  • Deleted And Extended Scenes
  • Outtakes
  • Tremors 5: Behind The Bloodlines featurette

The deleted and extended scenes were not that big of a deal. The outtakes were fun to watch. The featurette was OK too.

Here is the film’s trailer for your entertainment.
