In ABC’s freshman comedy series THE NEIGHBORS, Wednesdays at 8:30 PM, the Weaver family, headed up by mom Debbie (Jami Gertz) and dad Marty (Lenny Venito), move to an idyllic-looking suburban development – that turns out to be entirely populated by aliens stuck on this planet after they’ve lost their ability to return to home planet Zabvron. The aliens take their names from human sports celebrities, so the Weavers’ next-door neighbors – and tentative new friends – are dubbed Larry Bird (Simon Templeman) and Jackie Joyner-Kersee (Toks Olagundouye). The results are multiculturalism at a wider range than mere terrestrial folks […]Read On »

GAME CHANGE is an apt title for what happened in the 2008 election when John McCain, the Republican nominee for President of the United States of America, selected then-Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin as his running mate. Even people who see eye to eye on nothing else can agree that what followed was not quite like anything else that had ever happened on the national stage. The book GAME CHANGE by Time Magazine editor-in-chief Mark Halperin and political journalist John Heilemann encompasses the entire 2008 election, including the Democratic contest between then-Senators Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. The HBO film […]Read On »

HBO is digging back into the well of the recent political past with their new movie GAME CHANGE based on John Heilemann and Mark Halperin non-fiction book about the 2008 Presidential Race. Playing Sarah Palin, who ran for vice-president alongside John McCain, is actress Julianne Moore who went through a tremendous amount of research to get the performance right so it was real and grounded – and not a caricature. “The first thing I did was hire a vocal coach, because for me she has an incredibly idiosyncratic way of speaking and I really felt I needed to capture that,” […]Read On »

Movie Review: CRAZY, STUPID, LOVE

CRAZY STUPID LOVE movie poster

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore, Emma Stone, Jonah Bobo, John Carroll Lynch, Marisa Tomei, Kevin Bacon Writer: Dan Fogelman Directors: Glenn Ficarra & John Fuqua Distributor: Warner Bros. Release Date: July 29, 2011 Let’s begin by saying some good things about CRAZY, STUPID, LOVE. It has a top-notch cast and the screenplay by Dan Fogelman is mostly well-structured, except for one whopping pivotal issue that is never satisfactorily explained. However, the film bogs down in its details (and lack thereof) and the growing realization that we don’t particularly like or believe in any of the characters. […]Read On »
