Rating: PG Stars: George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, Britt Robertson, Raffey Cassidy, Thomas Robinson, Pierce Gagnon Writers: Damon Lindelof and Brad Bird, story by Brad Bird & Damon Lindelof & Jeff Jensen Director: Brad Bird Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures Release Date: May 22, 2015 Supremely well-intentioned and very uneven, TOMORROWLAND is a movie that’s easier to appreciate than to actually enjoy. Yes, it has some great concepts and delightful moments, but it also has long stretches that feel borrowed from dozens of other kid-friendly quest stories, along with some expository dialogue that goes on longer than is safe. TOMORROWLAND starts with …Read On »

In CBS’s new series BATTLE CREEK, premiering Sunday, March 1 at 10 PM, the police department of the title Michigan town receives a boost in the form of newly-transferred FBI Special Agent Milton Chamberlain (Josh Duhamel). Almost everyone is thrilled by this – except for Milt’s new partner, Detective Russ Agnew (Dean Winters), who thinks Milt’s Boy Scout attitude is an act, or if it’s not, that Milt is crazy. Riding herd on this mismatched pair is Commander Guziewicz, the station chief portrayed by Janet McTeer. McTeer, originally from Newcastle, England, has been nominated for two Oscars (for her lead …Read On »

In ABC’s NASHVILLE, which airs Wednesday nights at 10 PM, up-and-coming crossover country music star Juliette Barnes, played by Hayden Panettiere, is locked into a rivalry with more traditional and established country icon Rayna Jaymes, played by Connie Britton. Both actresses were nominated for Golden Globes for their work on the Callie Khouri-created series, still in its first season. Juliette represents something of a departure for Panettiere. Although the New York-born actress has been a thespian since her early childhood and has also cut an album as a singer/composer, she is usually known for playing kindly and selfless characters – …Read On »

HOUSE ends its eight-year run tonight with a two-hour finale beginning at 8 PM on Fox. We caught up very briefly with Robert Sean Leonard, who has played Dr. James Wilson, exasperated best friend of Hugh Laurie’s difficult-to-get-along-with Dr. Gregory House, for the entire run, and got his views of two topics – his love of theatre and his dislike of the term “bromance,” especially as applied to Wilson and House. ASSIGNMENT X: You’ve been on Broadway twelve times so far. Do you have a preference for doing series television or theatrical film or stage? ROBERT SEAN LEONARD: Yes. It’s …Read On »

Finding a new take on the familiar Santa Claus adventures is a formidable task, but writer-director Sarah Smith and co-writer Peter Baynham were up for the challenge with the new animated film ARTHUR CHRISTMAS. A CGI co-production between Aardman Animation and Sony Pictures Animation, the story follows wayward Santa Claus offspring Arthur – a well-to-do nebbish who believes in the true spirit of Christmas, but will sadly never be next in line for the Santa job with his much more together older brother Steve – who has completely streamlined the Santa operation for dear old Santa dad with a state-of-the-art …Read On »

Rating: PG Stars (voices): James McAvoy, Hugh Laurie, Jim Broadbent, Bill Nighy, Ashley Jensen, Imelda Staunton Writers: Peter Baynham & Sarah Smith Director: Sarah Smith Distributor: Columbia Pictures Release Date: November 23, 2011 Some fantasy subgenres are so populous that they have arguably outgrown the designation of “sub”: the lovelorn vampire, the quest through mystical lands, the zombie apocalypse. Add to this list (and check it twice) the genre of Santa having gift delivery issues on Christmas Eve. The newest iteration of this last is ARTHUR CHRISTMAS, the first 3D CGI animation (as opposed to stop-motion Claymation) offering from Aardman, …Read On »

With HOUSE returning for Season 8 with a leaner cast this fall, and a long negotiation process that delayed the announcement it would be returning, the question mark of whether the show will return for a Season 9 was in the air at today’s Summer 2011 Television Critics Association session for Fox. Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly says he still has no word if this will be the show’s final season. “I can’t confirm it’s the last season,” says Reilly. “Hugh [Laurie] is mulling it. The producers are. This is the original team of creators who have been there from …Read On »
