    (KUTV) I'll be counting down the days until "The Magic School Bus Rides Again" debuts on September 26th, but fortunately there are plenty of titles between now and then to keep me occupied. Everything from a Jerry Seinfeld special, Ben Affleck's "Gone Baby Gone," the return of the Jaws franchise and numerous Netflix Originals (like Lady Gaga's "Five Foot Two" and the third season of "Narcos") that I'll stumble upon somewhere south of midnight. Here's a look at a few titles that I happily recommend checking out.

    Disney's Mulan

    In 1998 I was in the middle of my "Hong Kong Cinema" phase where I actively sought out the films of Jet Li, Chow Yun-fat, Michelle Yeoh, Tsui Hark and the majestic Wong Kar-wai. So when Disney released "Mulan," the story of a legendary woman warrior, I was completely on board. Sure, the voice casting wasn't ideal, but the film was highly enjoyable. (Avail 9/1/17)

    Gangs of New York

    Nominated for 10 Academy Awards, "Gangs of New York" stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Cameron Diaz and Daniel Day-Lewis in a film directed by Martin Scorsese about a young man who returns to Five Points, New York, circa 1863 to avenge the death of his father. It's a bit over the top, particularly when it comes to Day-Lewis, but it still makes for quality entertainment. (Avail 9/1/17)

    Pulp Fiction

    I remeber watching "Pulp Fiction" when the film and its writer/director Quentin Tarantino was something of an unknown commodity. Funny how the times have changed. It started with "Reservoir Dogs," but this is where his career caught the attention of the mainstream. The film single handedly resurected John Travolta's career and was yet another stepping stone for Samuel L. Jackson on his ascent to fame. (Avail 9/1/17)

    Requiem for a Dream

    I remember walking out of director Darren Aronofsky's "Requiem for a Dream" feeling like I'd been knocked sideways by a train. Great performances from Ellen Burstyn, Jared Leto and Jennifer Connelly make this drug fueled decent into paranoid insanity an unforgettable experience. I wouldn't recommend a double feature with "Trainspotting." (Avail 9/1/17)

    Like Crazy

    When I first saw "Like Crazy" I found the characters' tunnel vision to be rather laughable, but upon reflection I have to acknowledge that love can be a blinding experience that can distract all the senses. And the loss of that love due to outside forces can be devastating. The fantastic cast includes Felicity Jones, Anton Yelchin and Jennifer Lawrence. (Avail. 9/5/17)

    The Walking Dead: Season 7

    I'm currently a handful of seasons behind on "The Walking Dead," but the show's enduring popularity speaks for itself. (Avail. 9/8/17)

    Disney's Beauty and the Beast

    I still greatly prefer the animated version, but there is still plenty of charm to be found in this live action version of Disney's hits. Oddly enough there's far more digital animation on display here than there was in the animated film. Emma Watson is okay as Belle, Dan Stevens is best when he's covered in fur and Luke Evans is nothing short of fantastic. (Avail. 9/18/17)


    Todd Haynes' film about an older woman (Cate Blanchett) who falls for a young photographer (Rooney Mara) working a department store sales counter is a little too polished to be a complete success, but its a beguiling jouney nonetheless. (Avail. 9/20/17)
