The movie feels a bit like it was made in the middle-late twentieth century, the ‘60s through the ‘80s, when there were more stories like this one, concerning men finding themselves by leaving civilization behind. The irony in THE LOST CITY OF Z is that Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam) was actually in […]Read On »

A father who is a master craftsman is eager to pass his wisdom on to his eldest son.

In Season 5 of THE AMERICANS, Tuesday nights on FX Network, things are more stressful than ever for our ‘80s-era KGB spies, Philip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth Jennings (Keri Russell). Not only are the pretend-all-American couple continuing to keep us their identities, they are trying to prevent the U.S. from poisoning the U.S.S.R.’s grain supply, coping with teenage daughter Paige’s (Holly Taylor) romance with the son of FBI Agent Stan Beeman (Noah Emmerich) and dealing with son Henry’s (Kiedrich Sellati) increasing curiosity about exactly where Mom and Dad go all the time. Series creator Joe Weisberg and his fellow executive […]Read On »

Hey there, dorks.

What do we watch first when a movie remake is coming out? Do you watch (or rewatch) the old version before going to see the new version? We’re going to argue about it. And finally, we will end the show […]Read On »

Filled with emotion and honesty, it’s the night where we truly get to see the contestants for who they really are and where they came from, whether it be twenty years ago or, in the case of Mr. T, sixty four years ago. Sadly, Mr. T ended his run on DWTS tonight, along with […]Read On »
