The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2


I love film sagas. I call them escape films because with film franchises like Twilight, Harry Potter, The Maze Runner, and The Hunger Games, my female friends and I can anticipate seeing several installments of our favorite movies as an excuse for a girl’s night out. I look for any excuse to get out of making dinner. After thirty-six years of marriage, I’m tired of looking at that stupid stove.

Today, I did something completely different. My husband and I made arrangements to see the last installment of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 with our neighbors, Rita and her husband. We went to the morning showing of the film, which meant that I still got home early enough to cook dinner. Damn!  Was Mockingjay – Part 2 worth dragging the hubbies to the movie?

The Walking Dead S06 E07: Heads Up



In last week’s episode of “The Walking Dead” we met a swamp walker. It was special effects supervisor and co-executive producer Greg Nicotero’s tribute to artist Bernie Wrightston, the co-creator of Swamp Thing. While cupid shot his arrows into Abe and Miss Sasha, our little stud muffin, Daryl, lost his bike and crossbow. The stranger who took Daryl’s prized possessions was Dwight. It was a wild episode and we were left with so many questions. Why is the wall in Alexandria bleeding? Who was calling out for help on the walkie? Will Morgan the Zen master get an ultimatum from Rick? Hopefully, all three questions will be answered. Read the rest of this entry

American Horror Story Hotel S05 E07: Flicker


Rock-a-bye beastie! This season of “American Horror Story” is crazier than ever. On last week’s episode we were shown the connection between Murder House and Hotel with the birth of baby Bartholomew. Holy fangs! This kid has a face that only a mother could love. Lady Gaga was at her best last week as the countess who hates to share. There’s some construction going on over at Hotel Hell. Will the construction workers find another secret room? Will they live to tell about it? Read the rest of this entry

Shadows of the Forest: Behind the Scenes with Sharon Smyth Lentz


What goes into making an Independent Film? What is a cast reading? How does the director get people to star in his film? If you would have asked me a year ago, my reply would’ve been, “How the hell would I know?” But, as one of the writers for a new independent film, you might want to ask me that question, again.

The Walking Dead S06 E06: Always Accountable


Dust off that bassinet! There’s a new baby on the way, but that good news is streaked in sorrow. Maggie is pregnant, but I’m afraid she’ll be raising this baby on her own; Glenn’s fate is still up in the air. In last week’s episode of “The Walking Dead,” love was in bloom for Rick and Jessie and maybe Tara and Denise. While Team Rick is getting all kissy face behind the walls of Alexandria, someone attacks Daryl, Abe and Sasha and we are left to ask, “Why?”

American Horror Story: Hotel S05 E06: Room 33


Holy Children of the Damned! Last week’s episode of “American Horror Story: Hotel” had the SWAT team sweeping in to save the teachers and the kiddies from an attack. What the cops didn’t know about the little tykes might come back to bite them; literally. While Alex and Holden share a coffin, Ramona and Donovan plan their revenge. If we stay away from Room 33, we might survive the night. Read the rest of this entry

The Walking Dead S06 E05: Now

Maggie e 5

Although we now know how Morgan got his Zen and staff, on last week’s episode of “The Walking Dead” we found out that Morgan kept the alpha Wolf alive. Not a smart move, Morgan! There is havoc inside and outside of Alexandria. Someone’s at the gate and, Maggie goes looking for Glenn. Will she find him? Read the rest of this entry

American Horror Story, Hotel S05 E05: Room Service


On last week’s episode of American Horror Story, we were invited to a dinner party that left me looking for the nearest exit. While Mr. March entertained a room full of dead serial killers (the best kind), Alex decides to join Team Countess. I’m wondering if being a blood sucker will interfere with Alex’s day job.

“The Walking Dead” S06 E04: Here’s not Here


“Thank you” were not the words most of “The Walking Dead” fans, including me, were uttering after last week’s shocker. Nope! The words uttered were more likely X-rated. What the hell were Robert Kirkman and Scott Gimple thinking? First the attack on Alexandria by the wolves, then we are forced to watch Glenn fall into a frenzied mob of walkers. Is he dead or alive? And, what’s up with Morgan and his walker bonfire? Find out after the jump. Read the rest of this entry

31 Days of Horror 2015: Bones/Sleepy Hollow Crossover


When I learned of the “Bones” and “Sleepy Hollow” crossover event scheduled on FOX, I was excited my little sleepy heads; very excited. What a great Halloween treat. Bones Brennan vs. Ichabod Crane! Two FBI crime teams working together with one little itty-bitty discrepancy; one of them is not from this time period. Read the rest of this entry
