Better Call Saul - Season 04
by Ryan Keefer

The Show:

Back when I was half joking about the acumen with which Better Call Saul was going in its second season, you knew that it would head down a sad yet inevitable road, right? Jimmy (its second season) would become Saul eventually, despite his best efforts otherwise.

There are two big changes that have occurred since I wrote a lot of words down about the show; one being the death of Jimmy's brother Chuck (Michael McKean, This is Spinal Tap) and the introduction or reacquainting if you will of Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito, Breaking Bad), both of which occur in Seaso...Read the entire review »

Arabian Adventure (Blu-ray)
by Stuart Galbraith IV

Arabian Adventure (1979) was the fifth and final film of a series of fantasy-adventures produced by John Dark and directed by Kevin Connor, following The Land That Time Forgot (1974), At the Earth's Core (1976), The People That Time Forgot (1977), and Warlords of Atlantis (aka Warlords of the Deep, 1978).

The story in this fourth entry in the series introduces us to Dr. Victor Fries (Arnold Schwarzenegger) who turns to the dark side after his wife, Nora (Vendela Kirsebom Thomessen), is unfortunate enough to contract a rare disease called MacGregor's Syndrome. When his blood gets injected with a cryogenic liquid, he becomes Mr. Freeze, the newest supervillain to terrorize Gotham City. His schtick? He's cold looking, cold feeling and hellbent on making everyth...Read the entire review »

An idea that's more clever than funny
