MOVIE REVIEWS
 
Tom Hanks and Dan Aykroyd star in 1987's "Dragnet," a Universal Pictures release.

Class of 1987: ‘Dragnet’

Veronica Mars

This labor of love is catnip for fans of the gone-but-not-forgotten cult TV series about a fierce schoolgirl turned PI.

Class of 1983: “Videodrome”

"Videodrome" shows how David Cronenberg is sometimes a provocateur only to a point. But he also wasn't far from his cinematic incisions that cut the deepest.

Season four of HBO's hit Southern paranormal is slow at times, but chock-full of beautiful people, sensuous images and soapy goodness.

Wallace and Gromit’s World of Invention

The quirky animated British duo continue to be quirky, animated and British as they explore real-life inventions.

21 Jump Street

TV Recommendation Contest

Austin will watch whatever show you recommend to him. The best one wins a prize.
