Original release date: June 4, 1982
Fathom Events screenings: September 10 & 13, 2017

In honor of the 35th anniversary of the theatrical release of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Paramount Pictures and Fathom Events are bringing the Director’s Cut version of the film to theaters for two days only this month (9/10 & 9/13). I got the chance to see the film at my local theater at the Sunday afternoon screening, and even though I’ve seen this movie — which is one of my favorites of all time — countless times, getting to see it on the big screen again was elating.

The screenings all include a new interview with the film’s star William Shatner, who played the iconic role of James T. Kirk. In the interview, which begins about 15 minutes prior to the screening times (2pm and 7pm local time), the actor talked about making the sequel and how it reinvigorated the Star Trek franchise.

Scream Queens 210-03

Scream Queens
Episode 2.10 “Drain The Swamp”
Written by Brad Falchuk & Ian Brennan
Directed by Ian Brennan
Starring Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer, Billie Lourd, Kirstie Alley, Lea Michele, Taylor Lautner, John Stamos
FOX
Air Date: Tuesday, December 20th, 2016, 9pm

Scream Queens concludes its second season tonight with an appropriately titled episode, considering it’s air date is the day after the Electoral College confirmed the Trump ascendancy. There are two Green Meanies left after Wes (Oliver Hudson) was killed off last week in a vat of boiling peanut oil. That leaves Chanel-hating hospital admin Ingrid Hoffel (Kirstie Alley), and vengeance seeking baby in the belly, Dr. Cassidy Cascade (Taylor Lautner) whose mom is even crazier than him, keeping Zayday (Keke Palmer) hostage while her son murders everyone he can in the hospital. The major bone of contention is his love of Chanel #3 (Billie Lourd) and whether or not he will follow through with killing her or run away with her. In other news, Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis) finally admitted she’s dying of an incurable disease and Chanel (Emma Roberts) could be in line for a major gig, replacing a murdered Brooke Shields on “Loving the D”.

Spoilers for Scream Queens

You gotta love any show that names an episode “Lovin the D.” Last week, things got way too kinky as Jamie Lee Curtis directed her first episode of the show, and her Cathy Munsch quickly became the subject of a love triangle as Wes Gardner (Oliver Hudson) returned and swept her off her feet, which caused huge jealousy for Dr. Holt (John Stamos). It was later revealed that he is also one of the Green Meanie killers since his daughter Grace went nuts after season 1. He left Chamberlain (James Earl) a bloody mess. That gives us Wes, Ingrid Hoffel (Kirstie Alley), the hospital admin out for revenge against the Chanels, and Dr. Cassidy Cascade (Taylor Lautner), the baby in the belly from the premiere as our three (so far) killers. Of course Hester Lea Michele) is still roaming the hospital and she was the killer from season 1. And technically Chanel (Emma Roberts) killed Hoffel’s sister at Kappa house… and Holt has a the hand of a serial killer… and Munsch definitely murdered her husband last season… jeez man, who isn’t a killer on this show!

Spoilers for Scream Queens

Last week on Scream Queens, the adorable couple of Chanel #3 (Billie Lourd) and Dr. Cassidy Cascade (Taylor Lautner) tried to work through their issues so they can move forward together. Unfortunately, there’s a small problem with their relationship in that he is one of the Green Meanie killers stalking the CURE Institute. We know that hospital administrator Ingrid Hoffel (Kirstie Alley) is pulling the strings and acting as a second killer, but there may be another. The highlight of last week was Dr. Holt (John Stamos) and the ongoing battle with his own hand, which was transplanted from a serial killer as well. It’s impeding his budding romance with Chanel (Emma Roberts) and drawing him into conflict with Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis).

Spoilers for Scream Queens

Last week, we found out the identity of The Green Meanie… well at least one of the Meanies. Dr. Cassidy Cascade (Taylor Lautner) confessed to psycho nurse administrator Ingrid Hoffel (Kirstie Alley). She was already on her own crusade to kill the Chanels for the murder of her sister, the cook back in season 1. Meanwhile, Chanel (Emma Roberts) won the hospital blood drive and Hoffel’s trip to Blood Island and plans on consummating her relationship with Dr. Brock Holt (John Stamos) very soon. In a hilarious twist, Cascade framed Holt as the “baby in the belly”… leaving 53-year-old Stamos being accused of crimes of the 30 year old. He is of course flattered at first until he realizes they’re serious.

Last week, Chanel (Emma Roberts) devised a plan to recruit new “Chanels” for the purposes of being cannon fodder against The Green Meanie. Plan worked, as the killer struck again. Zayday (Keke Palmer) is convinced that hospital candy striper Chamberlain (James Earl) has something to do with the murders.

After four long weeks, Scream Queens is back! Breaking for both the World Series and the Presidential Election, Scream Queens now reclaims its tuesday night time slot.

When we last left the hospital, Chanel #5 (Abigail Breslin) was attacked and left for dead by the Green Meanie who also disposed of Denise Hemphill (Niecy Nash) via electrocution. Hester (Lea Michele) has also escaped and may or may not be aiding the Meanie in their revenge killings.

Spoilers for Scream Queens

Sorry this is late, but Tuesday night was Amy Schumer at Madison Square Garden in NYC… but here’s what’s happening on Scream Queens. My poor sweet Chad Radwell (Glen Powell) is dead. I have not, and will not recover. His body fell Suspiria-style through the stained glass ceiling at his supposed wedding to Chanel (Emma Roberts). The CURE Institute has been shockingly successful at finding cures for bizarre ailments, while at the same time being horrible at keeping its patients alive post-cure. The Green Meanie continues to wreak have on the hospital now run by Cathy Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis). Thirty years ago on Halloween night, a patient was ignored and died thanks to the staff who then dumped his body in the swamp. Now, in order to try to lure the killer out, the current gang are having their own hospital Halloween party.

Spoilers for Scream Queens

On Scream Queens, The CURE Institute is losing its patients (pun intended). Dean Cathy Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis) is in danger of watching her hospital go up in smoke thanks a killer in a green monster suit who drips ooze. Two weeks ago, poor Chanel #5 (Abigail Breslin) saw her chance for love end at the end of the swamp killer’s blade. Chad Radwell (Glen Powell) showed up to fight for Chanel (Emma Roberts) and his panicked friend also met a vicious end. Everyone is on edge and desperation is seeping in… so much so that they even go to the asylum and pay Hester (Lea Michele) a visit. She immediately connects the killings to the hospital murders from 30 years earlier when doctors dumped a body in the swamp and someone returned to wipe out an entire hospital staff.

Spoilers for Scream Queens

Last week on Scream Queens, we welcomed the Chanels back into pathetic little lives. Chanel Oberlin (Emma Roberts), Chanel #3 (Billie Lourd), and Chanel #5 (Abigail Breslin) are free from captivity and are enlisted as new medical students in a hospital for “special” rare cases run by none other than Cathy Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis). Of course the second the Chanels show up, patients start getting murdered in gruesome ways, like the poor werewolf girl who was beheaded while enjoying a warm bath. You see thirty years earlier on Halloween, doctors at the hospital murdered a sick patient for having the audacity to need treatment during the Halloween party. The victim left behind a grieving wife and an unborn baby… yeah, just like season 1, there’s a total 80s plot behind the season. Unlike last season’s Red Devil Killer sporting the campus mascot, this killer dons a green monster costume, a monster than legend says haunts the swamps surrounding the hospital…
