Rating: PG-13 Stars: Naomi Watts, Jaeden Lieberher, Jacob Tremblay, Sarah Silverman, Dean Norris, Maddie Ziegler, Lee Pace Writer: Gregg Hurwitz Director: Colin Trevorrow Distributor: Focus Features Release Date: June 16, 2017 THE BOOK OF HENRY is something of a return to roots for director Colin Trevorrow. Before helming JURASSIC WORLD (and yes, he’s also scheduled to direct STAR WARS: EPISODE IX), Trevorrow made his feature directing debut with the wonderful, unpredictable 2012 indie SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED. THE BOOK OF HENRY has what looks like a slightly bigger budget than SAFETY, but it too zigs into some unexpected places. THE BOOK […]Read On »

Actress Annaleigh Ashford is sitting down in the lounge at the Beverly Hilton Hotel to talk about Season 3 of Showtime’s MASTERS OF SEX, Sundays at 10 PM. However, the Colorado-born actress has just won a Tony Award for Actress in a Featured Role in a Play for her work as Essie in the Broadway revival of YOU CAN’T TAKE IT WITH YOU, so there’s discussion of that, along with her starring gig as the title character in the upcoming production of SYLVIA. Although MASTERS OF SEX centers around the real-life characters of pioneering researchers Dr. William Masters (played by […]Read On »

As overly critical as I can be over the show and its occasional lack of focus and a good portion of the new cast still not ready for primetime and far from being ready for late night I still have faith. It’s […]Read On »

Showtime’s MASTERS OF SEX, now in its second season on Sunday nights, dramatizes the life and work of pioneering sex researchers William Masters, played by Michael Sheen, and Virginia Johnson, played by Lizzy Caplan. Although Masters and Johnson – and their research – were real, a number of fictional and composite characters appear in the series. One of the most unusual original characters is Annaleigh Ashford’s Betty DiMello. During the course of MASTERS OF SEX so far, we’ve seen Betty go from a lesbian prostitute who is instrumental in helping Masters and Johnson get their study started to an upwardly […]Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Seth MacFarlane, Charlize Theron, Amanda Seyfried, Liam Neeson, Giovanni Ribisi, Neil Patrick Harris, Sarah Silverman Writers: Seth MacFarlane & Alec Sulkin & Wellesley Wild Director: Seth MacFarlane Distributor: Universal Release Date: May 30, 2014 There are moments of laugh-out-loud brilliance in A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST, writer/producer/director/star Seth MacFarlane’s send-up of classic Westerns. There are also plenty of just generally funny things. And then there are things that will make at least some people go, “I’m not with you on this one.” It’s 1882 in the Territories, a scrubby stretch of the Old West […]Read On »

WRECK IT RALPH - Bluray

Rating: PG Stars (voices): John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch, Alan Tudyk Writers: Phil Johnston and Jennifer Lee, story by Rich Moore and Phil Johnston Director: Rich Moore Distributor: Walt Disney Home Entertainment Release Date: March 12, 2013 Suggested Retail Price: $49.99 Hands down, WRECK-IT RALPH was one of the best animated films of the year. And this was a year that also had such exceptional entries as FRANKENWEENIE and PARANORMAN. That said, I was a bit disappointed that the inferior BRAVE (good, not great) bested all of them for Best Animated Feature at the Oscars. Thankfully, […]Read On »

Interview: WRECK-IT RALPH star John C. Reilly wrecks it

John C. Reilly voices the title hero in Disney’s WRECK-IT RALPH. He’s a real-life hero to the press attending the WRECK-IT RALPH premiere, because after every single one of his colleagues has disappeared inside the theatre, Reilly comes back out to make sure that every reporter who has been waiting for a quote gets one. In short, Reilly is the epitome of a class act. ASSIGNMENT X: Obviously, WRECK-IT RALPH isn’t motion-capture, but did you give the animators any sort of motion reference? JOHN C. REILLY: No, it’s not motion-capture. That’s like a dirty work at Disney Studios. The animators […]Read On »

Movie Review: WRECK-IT RALPH

Wreck it Ralph | (c) 2012 Walt Disney

Rating: PG Stars (voices): John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch, Alan Tudyk Writers: Phil Johnston and Jennifer Lee, story by Rich Moore and Phil Johnston Director: Rich Moore Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures Release Date: November 2, 2012 TOY STORY was far from the first tale of playthings coming to life once humans were out of sight. The movie’s success owed everything to its execution and details. WRECK-IT RALPH likewise starts with this notion – although in this case, the “toys” are the video characters in arcade games – and goes to wonderful, funny, touching places. Less briefly, […]Read On »

Stars: Malin Ackerman, Lake Bell, Rob Coddry, Erinn Hayes, Rob Huebel, Ken Marino, Megan Mullally, Henry Winkler Writer: Jason Mantzoukas Director: Rob Schrab Network: Adult Swim, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: June 9, 2011 What most TV hospital dramas do in one hour, CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL distills into fifteen quality minutes of raunch, laughs and pitch black humor. “Ward 8” even manages to intercut three major storylines into that timeline too – so it’s pretty impressive indeed. The A-story follows the return of Detective Chance Briggs (PARKS & RECREATION star Nick Offerman). He was Dr. Owen Maestro’s (Rob Huebel) former police […]Read On »
