With all the poppin' Molly references, sippin' syrup advocacy, swimming in pools of alcohol advertising, and chronic weed abuse promotion that hip hop has become the modern day vehicle for, it's refreshing to see health addressed positively from icons of Jay Z and Beyonce's status.
After the last two episodes of American Horror Story: Coven nearly lulled me into a coma (except for the always-stellar work of the veteran cast), finally, finally, everything is starting to make sense.
It was a big weekend with the Thanksgiving holiday and for the first time I can recall, many of us also celebrated Hanukkah. I love this time of year filled with tradition, gathering together and sharing.
"I'm Tired of Pretending" centralized around a nexus of daddy issues. As Maddie becomes caught up in the implausibly juvenile interactions of Deacon and Teddy, Rayna and Tandy struggle with their respective torment over Lamar's imprisonment.
I went into Reaching For the Moon as blind as could be, having never heard of Elizabeth Bishop, her poetry, Lota de Macedo Soares, or the creation of Flamengo Park, and I left totally curious and enthralled by all of it.
There's a new drug on the streets of -- wait, what city is this show in? I know the show is filmed in Vancouver but Vancouver-as-what? Does anyone even know?
Yes, Elf has its moments, including almost every scene with Will Ferrell, but it experiences so many missteps that unless you squint real hard, this is one holiday film that doesn't quite deliver.
If Katniss has to "choose" Peeta or Gale, she will have to give up doing gender in this splendid, and, dare I say, feminist and queer way in order to "fit" into her and her "girlfriend's" or "boyfriend's" relationship. Now imagine a world in which Katniss wouldn't have to choose.
As much as I love those time-honored, mainstay songs, sometimes we need a little variety in our year-end arsenal besides the classic Bings and Franks and Rods and Nat Coles.
I expect to enjoy the telecast because the cast album is not only promising, it's frequently stunning, thanks to Ms. Underwood's vocal grace and mezzo timbre -- the role was composed for a mezzo -- and superior support from Audra McDonald as the Mother Abbess.
The law said Brian had to hide his own love away -- so instead, he worked tirelessly to spread the Beatles' great message of love across the globe, and in so doing Brian Epstein made the world a far richer place for love than it would have been without him.
I knew better than to expect P.L. Travers to write something sweet in my copy of Mary Poppins, but I didn't think it would be quite so medicinal.
Looking at all the recent comings out among celebrities, Daley and Bello provide yet another way for public figures to announce who they are (even if they're not exactly choosing what category they fit in). And that gives young people who may be LGBT even more options.
It's apt that he spoke as the van was in forward motion, as it unraveled the journey of a man possessing a focused rear-view mirror when it came to his past and polished dashboard when it came to his future.
In recent years, Hollywood, for better or worse, has played a significant role in educating the public about the Holocaust and its contemporary implications. This is why The Book Thief is an important new contribution to the Holocaust film genre.
I'm selling dope, straight off the iPhone. Are you saying that you're actually selling drugs using your iPhone? We ran it by Marketing and they love your energy, but insist the copy is way off brand.
The tweets have ended. The message boards and chat rooms have closed down. The water coolers are less crowded. And now I'm free to step back, examine and comment on the utter marvel of television art that was Breaking Bad.
However no member of Mott the Hoople embraced the joy, pageantry, and excess of the band and the era than bassist Peter Overend Watts.
For children with behavioral challenges or temperaments ill-suited to conformity and social ease, Elsa is a heroine that is truly relatable. She's not allegorical, but a human who screws up, wrestles with the results, and still finds her way to function in a world where she feels atypical.
The main gripe society has is that they encourage low aspirations; teach teenagers not to work hard, everything will be handed to them on a plate. Well, newsflash: Teenagers aren't that stupid.
Growing up with The Sound of Music has made many fans feel like part of the onscreen von Trapp family. And plenty of them have their opinions as to whether the Carrie Underwood casting is a wise one.
Most real men aren't heroic global fugitives, any more than are most women. So why do they get the fantasy, and we not? Maybe if more women wrote and directed movies we'd have more interesting women doing more interesting things onscreen.
