AMERICAN IDOL recap and photos: Scotty McCreery wins AMERICAN IDOL – Season 10!

Thankfully, this is the end of the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL. At least for this year. The bad news is that now I gotta now cover THE VOICE – thanks a lot boss! Obviously, the big news is that Scotty McCreery won the whole kit and caboodle, got the grand prize and is now the head cheese, the top dog, the numero uno. And that means that Lauren Alaina came in a distant (or maybe close) second. In the end, the actual competition portion from Tuesday night was quite boring in my opinion as they did songs they …Read On »

Interview: Malcolm McDowell on the 40th Anniversary of A CLOCKWORK ORANGE

Malcolm McDowell in A CLOCKWORK ORANGE | ©1971 Warner Bros.

In 1971, director Stanley Kubrick created a whole new filmic language with his controversial adaptation of the Anthony Burgess novel A CLOCKWORK ORANGE. A slightly futuristic satire on free will, the film starred Malcolm McDowell as the ultra-violent Alex, a wayward youth who finds a thrill in empty acts of sex and violence. When he’s sentenced to prison for murder, he’s enlisted into a new government program designed to curb his anti-social tendencies, but the after effects transform Alex from villain to unlikely anti-hero. A CLOCKWORK ORANGE has remained a polarizing film for decades and the new two-disc Blu-ray edition …Read On »

This season had some really high points, and some horribly preachy overdone episodes, but all in all I try to just remember the moments that honestly were amazing. Following on the heels of last week’s episode “Funeral” (which was one of BEST episodes of the …Read On »

TV Review: AMERICAN IDOL – Season 10 – “Two Finalists Compete”

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Tuesday and Wednesday Original Telecast: May 24, 2011 It is the last chance to impress on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL. Either it will be country singing Scotty McCreery or country and adult contemporary singing Lauren Alaina? Maybe a better question is: Why is Seacrest is a tuxedo? Is this that big of a deal? I don’t see anyone else decked out to the nines. The three rounds are divided into 1) the favorite song of the season from the contestants 2) a song picked by …Read On »

It’s all over but the shouting! Hines Ward and Kym Johnson are the champions of DANCING WITH THE STARS – Season 12! It was no big surprise that Ward won.

DWTS: The Finale had a great opening to an incredibly long and suspenseful show. The season 12 pros started out doing their own routine while the eight eliminated stars entered at the end and joined in on …Read On »

Ten Reasons Why Lauren Alaina will win AMERICAN IDOL – Season 10

Lauren Alaina in AMERICAN IDOL: TOP 24 | ©2011 Fox/Michael Becker

At this point, the AMERICAN IDOL race comes down to two country singers – Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina. They’ve beaten all the odds and are now the Final Two (despite people shocked that frontrunners Casey Abrams, James Durbin didn’t make it – and of course Haley Reinhart missing the coveted Top Two as well). So now it comes down to who is in it, to win it (Randy Jackson’s catchphrase this season) and tonight, Lauren has to step up her game, shake her usually rattled nerves and show the world why she should be the next Carrie Underwood. Here …Read On »

The Dork Side: The problem with GLEE and its real “agenda”

Cory Monteith, Dianna Agron and Lea Michele in GLEE - Season 2 - "Night of Neglect" | ©2011 Fox/Adam Rose

I like GLEE. I really do, but, I have a problem with it, and I want you to know that I criticize it, because I care. Conservative pundits have been ranting about the supposed gay agenda the show is pushing, which is completely ridiculous. Of course, several media outlets ran with the story even though it’s total crap. There is no gay agenda. It’s just a TV show that treats its gay characters like actual human beings. “Gay people are people, too. Film at 11.” GLEE (which airs its Season 2 finale tonight) does a lot of things right. It …Read On »

Stars: Delroy Lindo, Billy Lush, Matt Lauria, Jennifer Beals, Jason Clarke, Devin Kelley and Todd Williams Writer: Shawn Ryan, Director: Lesli Linka Glatter Network: Fox, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: May 23, 2011 With the news last week that THE CHICAGO CODE was canceled, it didn’t bode well for how the season and now series final “Mike Royko’s Revenge” was going to wrap up. Would it be a cliffhanger or would everything get tied up in a neat little bow? Were the producers prepared for a conclusion in the off-chance it didn’t get renewed? And strangely, it ended, exactly how …Read On »
