It takes a lot of courage to make a statement about current society, especially when the criticism could be equated to biting the hand that feeds you.
I've greatly enjoyed my time, but I no longer wish to put my body at risk for the sake of entertainment. I think about the rest of my life and I want to live it with much quality. And physically, I am grateful that I can walk away feeling as good as I did when I stepped into it.
What an extraordinarily delightful surprise it was to stumble upon Tim's Vermeer, which was made with a child-like wonder that mirrors its main subject, namely the obsessive mind of a curious, mad genius. Viewing this film is akin to watching Leonard Bernstein unwittingly discover Mahler's 11th symphony.
Is it ever too early to put what I consider good music into their little brains? I think not.
In a recent interview, Druyan discusses how the new Cosmos matches with the original, and sheds light on how the stars aligned to make the series happen.
We're the luckiest band on the planet. We're just five guys from Bakersville, California. We go from that to the success we've had over the twenty years from our first release.
Named one of People magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People," Sara Evans has turned the delicate balance of marriage and family, career and charitable giving into an art form.
Can the film industry generate more blockbusters without the blunders? Solving Hollywood's problems may start with Silicon Valley.
Hello friends, it's that special time of year again in Austin when free beer flows like water, anything can be turned into a music venue and a critical mass of industry folk brings this small city to about a billion times its regular population.
if I'm right, then Nic Pizzolatto took a serious -- and brilliant -- artistic gamble in the narrative arc of his screenplay, a wager calculated on a deep dark propensity in the American psyche. And, if I'm right, like Ruston Cohle, I'll "close the loop" on that speculation when it's over.
Among the lineup of incredibly talented actors and actresses who make up the show's cast, Sandra Oh, who plays Christina Yang, represents a character unlike any other on primetime television. Christina is a bold, cardiothoracic surgeon who knows what she wants.
So what draws us to these shows especially at a time when the public has so much disdain for government? Why does there seem to be an inverse relationship between "approval ratings" of the shows and the real-life counterparts of their characters?
I look up to my mom, I look up to Eleanor Roosevelt and Martin Luther King Jr., but I also look up to the Kardashians, and I will defend my right to do so.
Last week, Parenthood left the internet shaking its collective fist at Joel, the most heartless man alive, and this week's episode is full of the people we love continuing to make decisions we hate.
It all unfolds as the whole crew tries to figure out a rare, tricky tumor in a teenage girl and tend to the nasty leg wounds on another woman who dove into a trash chute to avoid her married boyfriend. Theme of the evening? Love is blind and makes you stupid.
I think Disney should make movies that are more realistic and reflective of the world we live in today. Love isn't just about fairytales or princesses or inanimate objects.
Google "coming of age movies" and you will find that the stories our culture says define coming of age are those like The Sandlot or Superbad. For boys of color there are far fewer, but some: Cooley High. Boyz in the Hood. School Daze. Try Googling "coming of age movies for girls" and you'll find a lot less.

Cusack and De Niro are the old pros in this movie and are compelling in each and every scene. They are also able to create the humor even when the situation is deadly. Da Costa jumps right into the midst of things and does her part with flair and ease.
If I were a sculptor, I would create a memorial to all those who have suffered from its poisonous and debilitating affects.
