When is a show cancelled, but not cancelled? That’s been the mystery behind the Christian Slater comedy BREAKING IN that did pretty good during midseason this year on Fox after AMERICAN IDOL. It wasn’t enough for it to get an official Season 2 renewal, but in recent months, there’s been movement that could bring the series back. Recent extensions on cast contracts have showed that the show has a little bit life left in it, and today at the Summer 2011 Television Critics Association Fox session, Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly explained that the show could get an official last […]Read On »

Movie Review: CRAZY, STUPID, LOVE

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.

Fox’s half-hour comedy BREAKING IN, trying out a Tuesday slot tonight after a run Wednesdays at 9:30 PM (even though it was canceled last week by Fox), concerns a high-tech security firm that is hired by various companies to evaluate weak points by, per the title, breaking in wherever it can be done. Bret Harrison plays Cameron Price, the firm’s newest hire, who has been more or less blackmailed into taking the gig by the firm’s mysterious boss Oz, played by Christian Slater. In some ways, Cameron and his situation don’t appear too far removed from Portland, Oregon native Harrison’s […]Read On »

CD Review: BLUE VALENTINE soundtrack

Where NO STRINGS ATTACHED stands as a date film that’s likely to get you lucky, BLUE VALENTINE practically ensures you’ll never see your lady again, if not one that will plant the seeds for a future divorce with the wife you’ve foolishly taken to see the flick. That being said, BLUE VALENTINE is also certainly one of the best feel-bad relationship films ever made, a continual gut punch to the idea of true love. So it’s only right that its music should be as raw as its downward-spiraling couple’s emotions. What Brooklyn band Grizzly Bear delivers goes even beyond that […]Read On »
