Exclusive Photos: BEAUTY AND THE BEAST Hollywood Premiere

Emma Watson at the World Premiere of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST

The World Premiere of Disney’s BEAUTY AND THE BEAST was held March 2, at the El Captain Theater in Hollywood. It was a big premiere. At the end of the carpet was a huge reception for the guests and stars with a spread of food and drink fit for a king to enjoy before heading into the theater. Fans lined the street screaming as the stars arrive. Seen walking the carpet were the stars of the film, which included: Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Josh Gad, Audra McDonald, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Matthew Lewis, Matt Sullivan (music), Celine Dion and John […]Read On »

Movie Review: THE WHOLE TRUTH

THE WHOLE TRUTH movie poster | ©2016 Lionsgate

Rating: R Stars: Keanu Reeves, Renee Zellweger, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Gabriel Basso, Jim Belushi Writer: Rafael Jackson Director: Courtney Hunt Distributor: Lionsgate Premiere Release Date: October 21, 2016 THE WHOLE TRUTH has a set-up that seems like it ought to make a perfectly good movie, or even a miniseries – lawyer defending a minor being tried as an adult for an act of patricide. However, the slow pacing, digressions that go nowhere and multiplying implausible details act against the movie’s best interests. Keanu Reeves plays Richard Ramsey, a Southern lawyer who narrates the film in what seems like an effort to […]Read On »

Movie Review: FREE STATE OF JONES

Rating: R Stars: Matthew McConaughey, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mahershala Ali, Keri Russell Writer: Gary Ross, story by Leonard Hartman & Gary Ross Director: Gary Ross Distributor: STX Entertainment Release Date: June 24, 2016 Rather extraordinarily, the broad facts of FREE STATE OF JONES are true. During the Civil War, a Mississippi farmer named Newt Knight brought together a small, multiracial militia and effectively seceded from the Confederacy. The story was previously fictionalized in the 1942 novel TAP ROOTS and its 1948 film adaptation. There remains a great deal of controversy about Knight’s motives and specific actions. In FREE STATE OF JONES, […]Read On »

Movie Review: CONCUSSION

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Will Smith, Alec Baldwin, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Albert Brooks, David Morse, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Luke Wilson Writer: Peter Landesman, based on the GQ Magazine article “Brain Game” by Jeanne Marie Laskas Director: Peter Landesman Distributor: Columbia Pictures/Sony Release Date: December 25, 2015 There were some rumors circulating that the National Football League had persuaded Sony Pictures to tone down the criticism of the NFL in CONCUSSION. If this is true, the imagination staggers at what the film was like earlier, because what’s onscreen here is pretty damning. Based on a true story, CONCUSSION begins in 2002 Philadelphia, where onetime […]Read On »

In the second part of our exclusive interview with TOUCH creator/executive producer Tim Kring, he talks about what we can expect in TOUCH Season 2 and what Season Five of HEROES would have been about. ASSIGNMENT X: What can you say about your plans for Season Two of TOUCH? TIM KRING: The season finale changes almost everything [from] the first season. We end in a place where the slate is wiped completely clean. Jake [David Mazouz] and Martin [Kiefer Sutherland] are now in a new life, in a new part of the world, with no ties to their former life, […]Read On »

TV Review: TOUCH – Season 1 – “Noosphere Rising”

Stars: Kiefer Sutherland, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, David Mazouz, Danny Glover Writer: Tim Kring & Carol Barbee Director: Gwyneth Horder-Payton Network: Fox, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: April 26, 2012 One of the toughest challenges the writers of TOUCH must have is making sure all the different story lines intersect organically while all we viewers have to do is keep track of them. In “Noosphere Rising” the connections aren’t quite as clear, but here goes. On the main story front, Martin Baum (Kiefer Sutherland) is trying to make sense of Arthur Teller’s (Danny Glover) death, as is Clea (Gugu Mbatha-Raw). While going over the surveillance video of […]Read On »

TV Review: TOUCH – Season 2 – “Entanglement”

Stars: Kiefer Sutherland, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, David Mazouz, Danny Glover Writer: Chris Levinson Director: Milan Cheylov Network: Fox, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: April 12, 2012 One of the realities of TOUCH is that there’s generally a lot going on as the story paths weave and interchange. “Entanglement” may be this episode’s title, but it could just as easily have been the series title, as well. Martin Bohm (Kiefer Sutherland), who lost his wife when the World Trade Center came down during the 9/11 attacks, is trying to raise his autistic son Jake (David Mazouz) who can’t speak. The trick is that Jake “sees” and apparently “feels” […]Read On »

TV Review: TOUCH – Season 1 – “Safety In Numbers”

Stars: Kiefer Sutherland, David Mazouz, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Danny Glover Writer: Carol Barbee Director: Stephen Williams Network: Fox, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: March 30, 2012 Every time a show proves to be as good out of the gate as TOUCH, you almost fear that the inevitable downslide is coming. SMASH and ALCATRAZ are perfect examples of first season series that started off strong and faltered quickly. I’m hoping the bigger picture of TOUCH, since it has proven to be so focused, will be the exception to the rule. It appears it has a pretty detailed plan all mapped out in […]Read On »

TV Review: TOUCH – Season 1 – “1+1=3”

Stars: Keifer Sutherland, David Mazouz, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Danny Glover Writer: Tim Kring Director: Ian Toynton Network: Fox, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: March 23, 2012 I was a big fan of the pilot presentation of TOUCH. It brought Kiefer Sutherland back to Fox after his long stint on 24, it had a compelling, positive story from HEROES creator Tim Kring and it proved that challenging, interesting and different storytelling does have a place on network television. However, delivering in a pilot and delivering on a week to week basis are two separate things. Thankfully, the official series premiere of TOUCH, […]Read On »

TV Review: TOUCH – Season 1 – “Pilot” – Season Premiere

Cast: Kiefer Sutherland, David Mazouz, Danny Glover, Gugu Mbatha-Raw Writer: Tim Kring Director: Francis Lawrence Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: Jan. 25, 2011 On the surface, Fox’s new drama TOUCH, seems like a RAIN MAN rip-off but just with a bratty kid and Jack Bauer (from 24), but it isn’t. Nor is it HEROES (as it is created by Tim Kring) with Jack Bauer as a superpowered killing machine – because that would just be too freaking awesome. This time Kiefer Sutherland isn’t running around yelling that “There’s no time!” or “Dammit!” (although he did say […]Read On »
