Interview, Audio: David Lowery, Writer & Director of ‘A Ghost Story’

CHICAGO – Not all supernatural tales are meant to scare, and writer/director David Lowery haunts in a different way with his new film, “A Ghost Story.” Using the classic “white sheet” costume, with actor Casey Affleck underneath it for most of the film, Lowery creates a spirit with both emotion and a contemplation of its fate.

Parade's End

CHICAGO – The most TV-centric column yet advising What to Watch on DVD, Blu-ray, Netflix, Amazon, On Demand, and more is another nearly random collection of offerings that you can use to guide your way through the new releases shelf at Best Buy, the On Demand section on Vudu, the store on iTunes, and maybe even Netflix and Hulu. Pick your favorites. This is the way we’d rank these new releases if you have a free night this weekend or money to burn next week.

TV News: The CW Moves Several Hits, Launches Three New Shows

CHICAGO – The CW is shaking things up this Fall, perhaps recognizing that their audience doesn’t care as much what night of the week their shows are on as they’re getting increasingly likely to DVR, download, or stream them. 40% of the net’s line-up is switching nights, moving around three new shows in the mid-section of the week.

TV Review: The CW’s ‘Arrow’ Misses Bullseye But Hits Target

CHICAGO – Can The CW survive on genre product alone? They’ve given up entirely on comedy, their reality shows produce immeasurably small ratings, and most of their traditional dramas are either past their prime (“Gossip Girl”) or struggling to find an audience (“Hart of Dixie”).

DVD Review: Latest Season of CW Hits ‘Supernatural,’ ‘The Vampire Diaries’

The Vampire Diaries

CHICAGO – As The CW continues to struggle to find a new hit (which could very easily change with the upcoming premiere of the very-promising “Arrow”), Warner Bros. releases two of the networks most reliable programs, arguably the two biggest success stories for the network right now in “Supernatural: The Complete Seventh Season” and “The Vampire Diaries: The Complete Third Season.”

TV News: The CW Announces Three New Shows, New Nights For ‘Top Model,’ ‘Supernatural’

CHICAGO – There have been a number of surprising announcements of new nights for hit shows this week (“Two and a Half Men,” “Glee,” “Revenge,” “Community”) and The CW closed out the trend this morning by announcing their Fall schedule and revealing that “America’s Next Top Model” and “Supernatural” will swap evenings.

TV News: The CW Renews ‘The Vampire Diaries,’ ‘Supernatural,’ ‘90210’

The Vampire Diaries

CHICAGO – In advance of their full Fall schedule, The CW has announced that they have renewed three of their only hits — “The Vampire Diaries,” “Supernatural,” and “90210.” The net’s biggest show, “Vampire,” will return for its fourth season while solid hit “Supernatural” will mark its eighth. “90210,” believe it or not, will air a fifth season from 2012-13. The network is in desperate need of a new hit but these three veterans do perform well enough to justify the early renewal.

TV News: The CW Announces ‘The L.A. Complex’ Premiere, Several Finale Dates

One Tree Hill season 7

CHICAGO- The CW officially announced its schedule of finale episodes today, as well as the premiere date of a new series. The new series “The L.A. Complex” is set to premiere on Tuesday, April 24, while several shows, including the series finale of “One Tree Hill,” have their finale date set.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Supernatural: The Complete Sixth Season’

Supernatural: S6

CHICAGO – “Supernatural” was supposed to end after five seasons. There were rumors of that fact long before it began in 2009 and it kind of felt like that acknowledged end point added a weight and gravity to the show. So, what are we doing here reviewing the recently-released sixth season Blu-ray on the eve of the premiere of the seventh season on The CW? You tell me. It’s still an entertaining show but it has the air of a sequel, kind of a copy of the original more than an inspired drama.

  • They're Playing Our Song

    CHICAGO – During the late disco era of the 1970s, an unusual musical opened on Broadway.

The always passionate Brown Paper Box Co. of Chicago has unearthed this chestnut with a bright and fun revival at the Rivendell Theatre through August 20th, 2017.
