El Rey Network’s From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series season 2 is back on August 25.

The first season filled us in on all the back-stories of the main characters, the Gecko Brothers, the Fullers and the mysterious culebra underworld. At the end of the season we see the brothers take different paths into the future. And Season two begins right where it was left off, with our characters in their separate worlds and in this world they are joined by new characters in the form of Esai Morales as Lord Amancio Malvado, Danny Trejo as The Regulator, Jeff Fahey (Uncle Eddie Cruickshank) and Briana Evigan (Sonja Lam).

We caught up with Robert Rodriguez, creator/executive producer, Carlos Coto, showrunner and cast at the summer TCA (Television Critics Association), during the panel session we got a description from Trejo of who “The Regulator” is, “He’s a mixture of Machete and Marcia Brady,” he said. And we found out that Demi Lovato will be guest starring close to the end of the season. After we talked a bit with a few of them about what we should expect in the new season. Now sit back and listen in on my conversation with the Gecko’s (Cotrona and Holtz), Garcia and González.Audio-Button-200

Now check out the series which “Explores a new chapter in this supernatural crime saga that expands the universe of our story across Mexico to the edgy, tricked-out Texas of Robert Rodriguez.”

I didn’t find Sinister 2 as scary as the first one, but that’s me. I did think that there were two evil dynamics going on in the film in the abusive husband/father character and Bughuul. You actually find yourself waiting for something to happen to the father figure.Sinister 2 Poster

We got a chance to talk to the producer Jason Blum (Paranormal franchise), the lead actress, Shannyn Sossamon (Wayward Pines, A Knight’s Tale) who talked about being a mom in the film with an abusive husband and her excitement on being on the next season of Sleepy Hollow. We also spoke to the writer C. Robert Cargill and director Ciarán Foy. Just click on the audio buttons to listen in.

Anthony Nardolillo is the director, here’s a bit about him:

“Born in New York, to Puerto Rican and Italian parents, Anthony considers himself a symbol of “Spanish Harlem”. He has always been inspired by his Puerto Rican roots and in particular, Salsa—the music that echoes and serves as the vocal conduit for love of family, pride and culture. He wrote SHINE to reflect the theme of gentrification and the wealth of culture in those of Puerto Rican descent.”

Straight Outta Compton PosterStraight Outta Compton takes us back to a time of many changes in music and fashion of the 80’s and 90’s. It is also an exciting and powerful story about the right to be heard and standing up to the abuse of (police) power, something kind of familiar today in some places across the country.

The group N.W.A had a strong POV that was needed at the time and still holds up today. Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, the late Easy-E, Mc Ren and Dj Yella form the original group.

The film is well made and they are some good performances. My son, who attended the screening with me, gave it a 9 out of 10.

The riot scenes gave me goose bumps and brought back some strong memories of that period.

We enjoyed the film for the stories it told and the lives of some of the characters that are still with us.
