“Magic Valley” To Be Available On Itunes April 9th

According to the Twitter account of star Kyle Gallner, “Magic Valley” will be available on Itunes on April 9th. The long awaited Indie film that appeared at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2011, also stars Matthew Gray Gubler as Mok, a heavy metal fish farmer. Criminal Minds fans may remember Kyle from the Criminal Minds episode “Heathridge Manor”, directed by Gubler.

“TJ Waggs, a high school student living in the small town of Buhl, Idaho, carries the burden of a terrible secret on his shoulders. And he’s not the only one having an off-day: A local fish farmer confronts a selfish neighbor that has carelessly poisoned his crop, the shifty county sheriff neglects his duties and uses his patrol car for his own personal gain, and a mom is too busy fussing over the family dog to notice her missing daughter. To make matters worse, two preschoolers playing in the fields have chosen an unusual playmate—one who is the common thread linking all these characters together.

Writer-director Jaffe Zinn’s atmospheric vision is a ruminative look at a bored and numbed town on the verge of a wake-up call. His keen voice also speaks profoundly to the disconnection of community and the decline of morale in a struggling recession-worn American society. Paced and shot with restrained elegance, highlighting a standout performance by rising talent Kyle Gallner, Zinn’s Magic Valley strives to capture who and where we are before the next defining moment happens.”

Review For Criminal Minds Episode 8.17 “The Gathering”

Thanks to Matthew Gray Gubler Fans Member Jasmine, we have this wonderful review of this weeks Criminal Minds Episode 8.17 “The Gathering”.

The Gathering: episode 8 x17

“all acts performed in the world begin in the imagination”

The Gathering was another great episode in season 8 of Criminal Minds and did not let any of my expectations down.

The previous episode, which aired 3 weeks ago, left us in quite a cliffhanger of a situation. The complete BAU (Behavioral Analysis Unit of the FBI) minus their computer expert Penelope Garcia, were in a large room with old fashioned music blaring and another victim of who they called “The Replicator” in the center of the room dead. They were surrounded by large boards covered with pictures of every member of their team and the word “Zugzwang” sprawled all over the photos. We had seen the term Zugzwang before as a german word for a chess play that told the other player they were about to be checkmated.

The unsub seemed to have been stalking them this past season by killing his victims in the same way as the killers from the recent solved cases. And after having leaving them chasing after what they thought was the replicator, the team found they were again caught ina game of cat and mouse and left vulnerable in the end.

Tonight’s episode entitled “The Gathering” focused away from the replicator and concentrated on a case where the unsub would copy the writings of a psychological patient who would deal with the thoughts of murder for women that he felt attracted to. And while the storyline walks away from the cliffhanger, it still remains an episode that leaves you hanging out of your seat.

I loved the episode for many reasons. The episode was filled with slight humor and gruesome ideas of murder. The unsub would copy the murders by following the storylines of a mentally ill person that included the man’s sexual fantasies of these women, though the unsub would not rape them. He would then proceed by removing their tongues with a pair of pliers and a knife, to represent the fact that all women are liars, even though the first thought of the BAU team was that he was stealing their tongues to claim ownership on the mentally ill patients stories.

The second interest of this episode was the plot twist. We were led to believe that the unsub was the mentally ill man who we saw from the beginning, writing and stalking these girls and reading the fiction he wrote of their murders. But only when they introduced the real unsub, a man who was heading his therapy group to help his patients by writing out their stories, did we find out that he was indeed the true killer of these women. And that when the mentally ill man did find out he murdered them, proceeded to murder the man who took his stories and brought them to life.

This episode’s personal story, another reason I loved this episode, focused on Penelope Garcia’s love life when a man she once dated, named Sam, walks back into her life, and creates an awkward moment between her and her ex boyfriend Kevin. The results is Garcia in a sexy dress playing the ukelele at the end of the show.

There was also many humorous lines in tonight’s episode which included Garcia calling Morgan “chocolate thunder” and when she referred to a victim’s blog as “makin 50 Shades of Gray look like a children’s book”. As well as Kevin telling Garcia that Sam will have “moobs” or man boobs from drinking soy. And lastly when Rossi reads a line in a blog about a child being potty trained which actually in the end turns out to be a woman’s cocker spaniel.

The last part that made me enjoy this episode was of course the outstanding work of  Matthew Gray Gubler. For one, I am pretty sure I saw Mr. Gubler in mismatched socks at the psychiatric hospital where he goes to interview a victim’s stalker who writes a story about her being strangled. And lastly was the last few moments of the episode where Dr. Reid decides to use the truth to convince the mentally ill unsub to not kill himself, despite JJ’s warning and he ends up killing himself anyway. This scene brought us to a gut wrenching scene when Hotch asks why Reid decided to try and convince the unsub with the truth and he says that the last time he told the truth, he lost someone. I felt another long painful beat of my heart, remembering the lies he told to try and save Maeve, which left the end of the episode rather bittersweet.

To conclude, I found the episode to be entertaining, well written, and well acted, and I cannot wait to see more on Dr. Spencer’s grief, the replicator and hopefully more news on Garcia’s love life.
