For the next few weeks I am going to give a Halloween service. The Internet loves quick lists so I’m going to give you a couple.

This week I’m going to tell you the 10 Best Zombie Movies (according to Doogan’s View – I’m going old school on you). To make it easier – if it’s a series, I’m including all the films of that series as one.   [Read on here…]

Well, it looks like all that hinting Lynch and Frost have been doing has paid off: Twin Peaks is coming back to TV in 2016. That’s pretty baller. There aren’t a lot of shows I would like to see return, but a few make sense. One is X-Files. I was never a terribly big fan of the show in its later years, but I do think it had an interesting mythology that could easily come back. Deadwood is another that needs to return. I’d also love Firefly (obviously), Party Down and just for my friends with hard-ons for it – Star Trek. Let’s hope some of these come back too.

While we wait, let’s look at some of the titles coming out this week to DVD and Blu-ray.  [Read on here…]

Sniff... it’s the last street date in September. So long old friend. But never fear, little ones, it’s also the first week of October and thus the beginning of my favorite time of the year. Halloween is just the bee’s knees, ain’t it? I have a whole slew of fond memories going back -cough- years and so many favorite things that only come out at this time of year. Mostly food, but other stuff too. You’ll probably see me get nostalgic as the month wears on. But I’ll try and keep a cap on it.

This is a light week, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some great titles coming. This week’s the list starts with probably biggest title of the month, maybe even the biggest title time of year! That title... [Read on here…]

Fall is here officially in the US, so I guess the heat wave attacking California can shut the eff up now. Let’s all hope for small miracles, huh?

This week is all about the Blu upgrade re-releases and horror titles. Lots of good stuff, couple of “eh” – so let’s take a look at what I think you should look at this week.  [Read on here…]

Thanks to everyone who has checked in on me about my bum foot – it’s doing much better. I can actually walk now (with a sexy limp, thank you very much) and I’ve only needed to dip into my pain meds a little (I’m not a fan of pain pills). That’s put me in front of the TV a lot these last few weeks and what did I choose to watch, you may ask? I watched every friggin’ minute of Trailer Park Boys. Holy smoley that is a fun show. It gets derivative, but there’s a certain charm to the formula and they seem to know it because they kinda just put it right out there. Considering there are 8 seasons and 3 movies (and a special) on Netflix, I’d say you could do worse with your life if you’re bedridden. I mean, sure, build a boat if you have full use of your body – but if you’re feeling sorry for yourself and don’t feel like making a downstairs hike to your disc library – it’s a good call. As for the ‘fore-mentioned discs – there are a few shining stars out this week and a whole slew of upgrade rereleases deserving your attention. Let’s spotlight, shall we?  [Read on here…]
