Hey guys, Jana here,
The upcoming 11th edition of the Dallas International Film Festival, or DIFF, opens March 30 and runs through April 9 for 2017. The festival will celebrate the year of 1967 with a salute to films from that year and we’ve got the full schedule here.
Hello Jana here,
‘Downton Abbey‘ has taken the TV series platform that Americans are familiar with, turned it on its ear, polished it to a British-shine and showed us what a witty, elegant and proper thing it could be. Unless you’ve been living in a cave, you know the premise. And if you’ve been living in a cave, I’ll give you a rundown so you’re caught up. Lord Crawley sees his family heritage, especially the grand country home Downton Abbey, as his mission in life. The death of his heir aboard the Titanic means distant cousin Matthew Crawley, a Manchester lawyer, suddenly is next in line and accepts moving onto the vast estate with his even more modernist, socially engaged mother, who clashes with his lordship’s domineering, conservative mother, the dowager. Marrying off the daughters is another concern. Meanwhile, the butler presides over a staff which serves the family, but also lead most of their entire lives in the servants’ quarters, intriguing amongst themselves.
After the devastating last episode of Season 3 of ‘Downton Abbey‘, the fans can be happy in knowing that Shirley MacLaine will be reprising her role as Martha Levinson on the upcoming season. There will also be six new cast members joining her including opera star Dame Kiri Te Kanawa who will play a guest that sings (shocking) and Tom Cullen who will play Lord Gillingham. Dame Harriet Walter and Julien Ovendon were also announced as new cast members.

Hi Bryan Here…..
Yes! That Dragon’s Lair from your favorite 80’s video game had a television series. The complete series had a mere thirteen episodes and it focused more on the continuing adventures of Dirk the Daring rather than the plots of the video game. I’ll be honest with you. These brought back tons of nostalgic memories of me playing this video game and it felt good. But the cheesy story plots and average animation made this series difficult to enjoy to the fullest and definitely doe snot hold up in any way shape or form for those of you who might have seen this at an earlier time. But, I will say that if you are a die hard fan of this franchise and love old rare animated shows, then this is a catch.
