At the behest of my editors at The Winchester Family Business, and because I admitted that it held some interest for me as a movie I might enjoy, I threw myself on this grenade and rented the film Driven from Amazon.
Director: Glenn Payne. Writer: Casey Dillard. Starring: Richard Speight, Jr. & Casey Dillard.
Above all else about this review, I want to stress first and foremost that this is a very competent film. I do not intend that as a passive-aggressive insult or damning the film with faint-praise. Sad to say, but some of the previous movies I had seen in theaters (in the before time of the long-long ago) and those of some major studios couldn’t even claim to be competent. Let me stress very much how thrilled I am that this movie actually told a story and did it very, very well. That by itself makes this worth the rental price.
The Boys are back, AGAIN! Season 3 of the hit series received an early pick up and will be returning to Amazon Prime! The Boys' producers, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg made the announcement during their San Diego Comic-Con@Home panel. Exactly when season 3 will begin filming remains a mystery, though, as the producers acknowledged, 'it's anyone's guess when or where we can film season 3'! Eric Kripke shared the news on Twitter along with a season 2 trailer and the announcement that there will be a new after-show hosted by Aisha Tyler!
Starting tonight, ”Supernatural” will have a new partner in the CW Thursday night lineup. Here at The Winchester Family Business, we thought it would be fun to get to know “Legacies,” the latest installment in “The Vampire Diaries“ franchise.
For those that remember that poignant series finale of “The Vampire Diaries,” the one that gave closure for the main characters, you may have noticed that clever opening left by creator Julie Plec for another story or two to tell. Last season, when “The Vampire Diaries” spinoff, “The Originals,” was coming to a close, Plec had the ideal pitch for The CW, who was looking for another legacy show for it’s lineup. What if Hope Mikaelson came to Mystic Falls? Better yet, how about she goes to the school for supernatural children that her own father helped create with his generous donation, The Salavatore Boarding School for the Young and Gifted?
Back in July at Comic Con, I got to speak to executive producers Julie Plec and Brett Matthews, as well as lead actors Danielle Rose Russell (Hope Mikaelson) and Matt Davis (Alaric Saltzman). They were all very enthusiastic about this new opportunity, which Matt Davis refused to call another spinoff. He called “Legacies” part three of a trilogy. After all, just because two brothers named Salvatore were no longer in town, it doesn’t mean that crazy crap stopped happening in Mystic Falls, nor all the traditions that the town clung onto so fondly. But is this just another rehash of “The Vampire Diaries” or is it darker like “The Originals?”
