I really enjoyed this action comedy-drama when it came out in 1973 – and the intervening decades have treated it very well. Director Richard Lester, who is the guy who captured The Beatles so brilliantly in A Hard Day’s Night, brings the Alexandre Dumas novel to vivid life. The settings are alternately sumptuous and squalid, the action veers between slapstick and swashbuckling, and the casting is inspired. Michael York stars as D’Artagnan, the wide-eyed young man who duels, bef

In this 2018 horror slasher film, Jamie Lee Curtis stars as Laurie Strode – a role she first played 40 years earlier, in John Carpenter’s influential 1978 film of the same name. The plot of this new film acknowledges the passage of that much time, and revisits, four decades later, the woman who was the only surviving teenager among the major characters in that first Halloween film – which, by the way, was Curtis’ film debut. And Curtis, of course, is the daughter of Janet

SERIES PREMIERE: This is not a recommendation. Revenge creator/producer Mike Kelley created this new Netflix anthology series, which in its opening cycle takes the basic premise of Indecent Proposal, switches the genders, and expands the story by about four times.  Jane Levy and Blake Jenner play the attractive young couple approached by a meddling tycoon, who offers a life-changing sum in exchange for being able to sleep with one of the married people for one night. The twist is, this time

This week, this series goes to a new planet, called Kitson, in hopes of rescuing the recently located Fitz. One problem: Kitson is a giant gambling mecca, Rescue kind of like a planetary Las Vegas, but with fewer restrictions. Another problem: the high-stakes gambling include betting for slaves, and Fitz is betting he’ll win his freedom. But he’s betting himself…

This new Live from Lincoln Center intimate concert features Megan Hilty, whom Broadway fans may remember from her turns in Wicked and other shows. TV viewers, though, are just as likely to know her from NBNC’s Smash, where she played the actress who starred as Marilyn Monroe in the fictional musical biography called “Bombshell.” Hilty will sing a song from “Bombshell” here, which may bring her, and us, one step closer to seeing a full-blown production or concert ver
