From the Trailer Park: Amazon Pilot Season — Comedies

Amazon once again gives its customers a voice in what shows get picked up. The abive is Jean-Clause Van Johnson starring Jean Claude Van Damme as himself who is a retired movie star and “Johnson” is his undercover alias. I watched this last night and it’s pretty funny in spots — a combo spoof […]

From The Trailer Park - Luke Cage

Sweet Christmas! After being introduced to the Marvel/Netflix universe in Jessica Jones, the genetically modified street fighter-turned-superhero Luke Cage (played by Zero Dark Thirty’s Mike Colter) finally gets his own show, where he defends the good people of Harlem against thugs and evildoers.

From The Trailer Park - Westworld (Teaser)

“These violent delights have violent ends.”

Based on this tantalizing trailer, it appears that creator Jonathan Nolan (The Dark Knight trilogy) and producer JJ Abrams (Lost, Star Trek) have taken the source material and run with it brilliantly. Michael Chricton’s script about a Western-style theme park of the future populated by robots was […]
