    Upcomingdiscs Talks With Robert Davi From Awaken

    Posted in Podcasts by Gino Sassani on June 30th, 2015

    Robert Davi has been around for a long time. He was a Bond villain against Timothy Dalton’s Bond in License To Kill. He went toe to toe with Sly Stallone in The Expendables 3. He told off Bruce Willis in Die Hard. Most of you remember him as Agent Malone on The Profiler. So what does he do for an encore? He sings Sinatra songs, what else? I’ll tell you what else. He stars in Awaken the new film out from Arc Entertainment. I had a great time talking to the man recently. We talked about Italy and music. Of course, we talked about Awaken. The man’s a force to be reckoned with. Just ask Sly, Bond or Bruce. It was even his birthday. Bang it here to listen to my conversation with Robert Davi.

    Exclusive Interview With David Hewlett – Writer/Director Of Debug And Rodney McKay From Stargate

    Posted in Podcasts by Gino Sassani on June 8th, 2015

    Every science fiction fan knows who David Hewlett is. I’ve been a fan since his first appearance as Dr. Rodney McKay on the original Stargate SG-1. The character was such a memorable one that he became a regular when Stargate: Atlantis was launched. Hewlett is also responsible for the plague that kills off the humans in the new Planet Of The Apes series of films. Now he’s gone behind the camera for Debug out this week on DVD. He wrote and directed the film which stars his old Atlantis buddy Jason Momoa, the future Aquaman. It was a special treat for me last week when I had the opportunity to spend a few minutes on the phone with him. We talked about McKay and the new film. Now you get to listen in on that conversation.

It’s a revolutionary show about a real-life spy ring from America’s fight for independence. Joining the redcoats is Samuel Roukin. He plays the nasty Captain Simcoe. I had the chance to chat with Samuel and he had some very cool insights into the character and the show. He even reveals a secret about the original fate of Simcoe that you are going to want to hear.

    Free Fall just out on Blu-ray/DVD from Anchor Bay might be Malek Akkad’s first feature film as a director. That doesn’t mean he’s exactly new to the business. You could say he was born to it. He’s been officially part of the Halloween franchise since The Curse Of Michael Myers (Halloween VI). His father was along for the ride from the beginning. I got to talk to Malek about both Free Fall and Halloween. I was a bit envious to hear him talk about “running around the set of Halloween as a child”. There’s even some news on the next chapter to be found here. If you want to hear all of that, just bang it here to sit in on my chat with Malek Akkad.
