Fin: Save ‘You’re the Worst,’ Sam Elliott in Harlan and 007 in Turkey

Add me to the list of people saying it: You’re the Worst, which wrapped up Thursday night at FX, is a special, special show. It not only sported great writing and a premise that just about rescued the romantic comedy on television, but it pulled two leads (Aya Cash, Chris Geare) and two secondary leads more »

Movie Review: “Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them”

What a misleading title. When it comes to movies, I like to know as little as possible about the film I’m going to watch. Now, since we’re in a day and age where we have countless avenues that devote all of their time to covering these movies, it’s kind of hard NOT TO uncover this more »

Deadpool movie coming in 2016, Internet near implosion

It would be easy to understand if Ryan Reynolds never went near another comic book movie again. Blade: Trinity? Green Lantern? “R.I.P.D,” for Pete’s sake! Deadpool, Marvel Comics’ fourth-wall breaking mutant mercenary, seemed like the character Reynolds was born to play. Then X-Men Origins: Wolverine released. It left me questioning my love of Deadpool, Wolverine more »

Could ‘Big Eyes’ bring Tim Burton some much deserved Oscar love?

Tim Burton has only had his name bandied about during Awards Season twice in his career – once for his excellent deconstruction of “the worst director of all time,” ‘Ed Wood,’ and the other for a weird familial drama starring Albert Finney, Ewan McGregor, and Billy Crudup entitled ‘Big Fish.’ There was a studio push more »

It’s official: “Supergirl’ series headed to CBS

The superhero surge has hit CBS, as it has given a series commitment to Warner Bros’ Supergirl pilot. Arrow executive producer Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler (New Normal) will join Sarah Schechter to executive produce. Arrow has done very well for CW, and early word on Flash is positive. CBS seems confident Berlanti can hit more »

Movie Review: “My Old Lady”

The last time we saw Kevin Kline on the big screen, he was hooting and hollering with a group of elder cinematic statesmen in last year’s flat and highly forgettable “Last Vegas.” In that film, Kline was part of an ensemble cast (along with fellow “alter cockers” Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Michael Douglas) more »

DVD Review: Sanctuary; Quite A Conundrum

It’s easily one of the strangest titles I’ve ever heard of, and though the caveat rings in my ears about judging a book by its cover, I’m quickly shown that, indeed, sometimes you can do exactly that, because the movie itself is as strange as the title. It’s “Sanctuary; Quite a Conundrum,” a copy of more »

Movie Review: “The Maze Runner”

Nowadays, it seems like every film studio is officially looking to find the next “Hunger Games.” It’s as if movie executives are scouring the “Young Adult” section for a cinematic heir to take over for Katniss Everdeen and company when their time comes, which will be sometime in 2015 right after “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay more »

Pop culture anniversary thinkpiece roundup: “American Beauty,” “Amadeus,” and “ER” 

Seems like every day it’s some major anniversary of a movie, TV, or album debut. And along with each, many a thinkpiece. Here are the ones we commemorated this week: The Marilyn Monroe subway grate shoot, 60 years. Jen Carlson, Gothamist:  The Seven Year Itch, starring Marilyn Monroe and Tom Ewell, was filmed between September more »
