Gotham
Season 3 Episode 4: “Mad City: New Day Rising”
Directed by Eagle Egilsson

Last week on Gotham, The Mad Hatter (Benedict Samuel) came to town looking for his sister, Alice (Naian Gonzalez Norvind), and to kill a few people (him, not her… okay, maybe her too a litte). He hypnotized a few people for sport, but really laid a whammy on Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie), causing him to want to kill himself. Alice saved him. Bruce and Alfred (David Mazouz and Sean Pertwee) got to know “5” a bit – he’s super strong and cannot feel pain. He also harbors the same Selina (Camren Bicondova) crush, so he gave himself a haircut and went to her, after Bruce made her sad. Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) decided to run for mayor and freed Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) from Arkham. Lee (Morena Baccharin) returned to the GCPD.

Warning! Spoilers ahead for tonight’s episode.

Gotham
Season 3 Episode 3: “Mad City: Look Into My Eyes”
Directed by Rob Bailey
Written by Danny Cannon
Created by Bruno Heller
Starring Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue, Sean Pertwee, Robin Lord Taylor, David Mazouz, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Camren Bicondova, Cory Michael Smith, Erin Richards, Chris Chalk, Michael Chiklis
FOX
Air Date: Monday, October 3rd, 2016, 8pm

Last week on Gotham, Bruce (David Mazouz) came to an understanding with the secret evil group who killed his parents and corrupted his company. Oh, and his doppelgänger showed up at Wayne Manor. A very different looking Ivy (Maggie Geha) crawled out of the water. She murdered the man who helped her because he neglected his plants. Bullock (Donal Logue) got kidnapped and “persuaded” to help Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett-Smith) find Dr. Strange (BD Wong). The GCPD, Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie), and Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) with his angry mob showed up at the scene. Jim snuck in to save Harvey, promising Fish a way out. That promise had a catch. Penguin was waiting for her, but was so moved by her reasons of being unable to kill him, that he let her go.

Spoilers below.

Last week on Gotham, we caught up with all of our old friends. Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett-Smith) became queen of the monsters, as the whole city hunted for her. Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) made the pot sweeter by offering 1 million dollars for her capture, and then acted sweeter by proclaiming his friendship for Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) Jim Gordon’s new bounty hunter job put him right in line to capture monsters for cash. Ace reporter Valerie Vale (Jamie Chung) showed up as Jim’s next love interest, er… informant? Bruce and Alfred (David Mazouz and Sean Pertwee) returned home to a pissed off Selina (Camren Bicondova), and to piss off the board at Wayne Enterprises. Bruce told them that he has the goods on them. They promptly kidnapped him. One of Mooney’s goons killed Mrs. Peabody by speedy aging, and seemed to kill Ivy (Clare Foley) the same way, as she fell a long long way.

Spoilers below.

Movie Review: Magic Mike XXL
Adam Frazier   |  

Magic Mike XXL Movie Review

Magic Mike XXL
Director: Gregory Jacobs
Screenwriter: Reid Carolin, Channing Tatum
Cinematographer: Steven Soderbergh
Cast: Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Adam Rodriguez, Gabriel Iglesias, Jada Pinkett-Smith
Warner Bros. Pictures
Rated R | 115 Minutes
Release Date: July 1, 2015

“Are you ready to be worshipped?”

Magic Mike XXL is something of a cinematic anomaly. What makes Gregory Jacobs‘ film so unique is that it works as bro-centric male fantasy and erotic female wish fulfillment. It’s the movie both Entourage and Fifty Shades of Grey aspire to, but are woefully unequipped to be.

Written by Reid Carolin and Channing Tatum, Magic Mike XXL picks up three years after the end of Magic Mike. After leaving the stripper spotlight to start his own business, “Magic” Mike Lane (Tatum) has traded one grind for another. The custom furniture business isn’t exactly booming, and the girl he thought was the one wasn’t.

Meanwhile, the remaining Kings of Tampa are planning one last blow-out performance, but they need the legendary Magic Mike as their headliner. Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Adam Rodriguez, and Kevin Nash, along with their emcee (Gabriel Iglesias), recruit Mike for one last ride: a road trip to a Myrtle Beach stripper convention where they’ll drown in a tsunami of dollars.

Directed by Danny Cannon
Written and created by Bruno Heller
Starring Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue, Jada Pinkett Smith, Sean Pertwee, Robin Lord Taylor, David Mazouz, Camren Bicondova, Morena Baccarin, Cory Michael Smith, Erin Richards, Zabryna Guevara
FOX
Air Date: Monday, May 4th, 2015, 8pm

It’s the end of an awesome inaugural season for Gotham! This Batman prequel centers around Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) and how he tries to clean up corrupt Gotham city with partner Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue), before the masked superhero grows up. We watched (and so did Selina Kyle – newcomer Camren Bicondova) the parents of Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) get murdered, starting his obsession with finding their killers and the corruption within Wayne Enterprises. We met the mob players of the town. There’s Don Falcone (John Doman) with his underling Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith), and her soon-to-be betrayer underling Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor). There is also Don Maroni (David Zayas), a loudmouth who is trying to take over as well. We watched Ed Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) go from amiable lab geek to a full on psycho, cementing his inevitable Riddler persona. Many other characters from the DC universe have also visited Gotham this season like the Joker, Poison Ivy, The Dollmaker, and Lucius Fox (Chris Chalk).

FOX
Air Date: Monday, April 27th, 2015, 8pm

Last week’s Gotham thrilled and chilled us. Here’s a recap of “Under The Knife” before this week’s review. Beware! There are a few spoilers after the recap.

The quirky little Ed Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) we know and love is gone. He got a taste for blood when he butchered Ms. Kringle’s handsy boyfriend. I did not even recognize him, and not because his hair was different and he had no glasses on. He was a maniac killer, enjoying it.

Jim (Ben McKenzie) will not back off even though The Ogre called him and warned him. Why should he worry? He made sure Lee (Morena Baccharin) was safe. Barbara (Erin Richards) is not though.

It’s almost the end for our inaugural season of Gotham! We have a little recap of last week’s episode, a review of this week’s, and lots of clips below for you to enjoy!

Selina (Camren Bicondova) made her first kill last week (check out that video below), pushing Reggie out of the window after he said he was gonna tell. She will be forever different now and is one step closer to being Catwoman. A cop asked Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) to look into a case for him, setting him up to start looking for The Ogre (Milo Ventimiglia). Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue) warns him to drop it, explaining that The Ogre goes after the loved ones of anyone investigating him. Even though it was a setup, Jim can’t walk away. More women will die.
