Last week on Gotham, Falcone (John Doman) put a hit out on Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie), and Zsasz (Anthony Carrigan) was a ton of fun while doing it. In the midst of that, Bullock (Donal Logue) and Gordon found Jerome Valeska (Cameron Monaghan) worshippers. Ed, Barbara, and Tabitha (Cory Michael Smith, Erin Richards, Jessica Lucas) went forward with the plan to destroy Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor), with visions of his dead father, causing him to kill a staff member. Selina (Camren Bicondova) and her mom reunited. Lee (Morena Baccharin) made Falcone call off the hit.

Last week on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, they had successfully captured Vandal Savage (Casper Crump). However, he played mind games and then of course escaped. Bumbling Ray (Brandon Routh) was goaded into opening the door when Savage taunted him about Kendra. They captured him again and brought him to the Time Masters… who released him and arrested the heroes, except for Sarah (Caity Lotz) and Snart (Wentworth Miller) who got away, and Jax (Franz Drameh), who had been sent back to 2016 to stop his aging process, caused by a blast of radiation.

Last week’s Bates Motel saw Norman (Freddie Highmore) try to throw himself into therapy. He did sneak a phone message to Norma (Vera Farmiga), then hallucinated that she visited him. Dylan (Max Thieriot) went on a legit job interview, and he and Emma (Olivia Cooke) grew closer. Chick (Ryan Hurst) started stalking Norma. At first she didn’t realize it, but then he confessed. Norman turned into Norma during therapy with Dr. Edwards (Damon Gupton). Norma asked Alex (Nestor Carbonell) if he killed Bob Paris, and he didn’t deny it. She was overwhelmed with gratitude, the magnitude of that washing over her.

It’s been a weird week for the folks at Minority Report. At NYCC they held a panel with the entire cast and previewed a rough cut of their October 19th episode (review to come). Unfortunately, the panel came on the heels of news that FOX had cut the final three episodes of their debut season, a bad omen for any new show. A huge fan of the first few episodes, I’ll enjoy what I can get. Last week Hawk-Eye, the predictive policing program was put into place and its newest civilian analyst is Dash (Stark Sands), who is using the position the help Detective Lara Vega (Meagan Good) solve murders before the happen. Faced with the possibility of being discovered, Dash is warned by his pre-cog siblings Agatha (Laura Regan) and Arthur (Nick Zano) that Vega might be not be so trustworthy. Visions of milkbaths, dancing in their heads.

DVD Review: The Fourth Kind

The Fourth KindThe Fourth Kind
DVD | Blu-ray
Directed by Olatunde Osunsanmi
Starring Milla Jovovich, Will Patton, Elias Koteas
Universal Home Entertainment
Released date: March 16, 2010

The Fourth Kind is the latest in a long line of sci-fi/suspense thriller. Dr. Abigail Tyler (Milla Jovovich) uncovers a curious link between several of her patients while videotaping their therapy sessions. Not only do each of the patients have trouble sleeping at night but when they do fall asleep, they both dream of the same white owl that haunts their dreams. As Abigail digs deeper into these dreams, she discovers these dreams could be linked to an alien encounter of the fourth kind.

While The Fourth Kind is definitely a watchable film, there is something about it that prevents me from fully enjoying the picture. It is not the acting that throws me off. All the actors in the film do a pretty good job, especially Jovovich. She shows a lot of range as a doctor and mother, which surprised even this humble writer. I am use to seeing Jovovich fighting a monster or a zombie, so it was a nice change of pace to see her hold a child instead of a sword. It is also not the directing or writing that throws me for a loop. Writer and director Olatunde Osunsanmi writes an entertaining script with some nice scares and dramatic moments. The direction of the film is also fine.
