Are The Mismatched Perspectives On 'The Affair' Realistic?
Our 'hero' -- Riggin (literally and figuratively) -- is haunted by the voice of his iconic movie character, Batman, er, Birdman. He is often in the throes of human despair. Or he experiences what might be called the 'magic realism' of levitating, flying and causing much mischief.

Keep on Keepin' On is a beautiful film about the love of friendship. It is a poetic film about mentoring, loving life and honoring musical talent.
Tambor may be the headliner, but he is surrounded by an amazing cast. And it's the way they adjust to the news and come to terms with their own identity issues that makes this series so watchable. The character development is masterful and the performances are, in a word, real.

Alex Gibney's documentary, Mr. Dynamite, limns the extraordinary rise of James Brown's career, and more: Interviews with his sidemen give a history of rhythm and blues, and race.
It's probably a push to a net win. Few consumers will have a reason to cancel Netflix in favor of HBO, but many will have a reason to subscribe to both.
Promotion has always been a forte for Robert Downey Jr. so it comes as no surprise that he picked up quickly on social media. He's also a smart business man who sees this opportunity for what it is--a global trend that will not be ignored. Robert Downey Jr. is, as usual, a futurist.
I love a good Romantic Comedy. I really do. I typically go for a forties or fifties rom com. A good black and white with Cary Grant, a little Hepburn, Jimmy Stewart. They made great movies back then.
Most of the time, a song gets stuck inside your head for hours, days courtesy of a catchy chorus or well-written verse. In the case of Bastille, however, their orca-whale-sized hit "Pompeii" produced a mind gloriously filled with repeated "eh ohs."
For several months, we became friendly, hanging out together at the producer's office on Park Avenue. Knockout opened and closed within months, and everyone involved in the production went their separate ways.
Yes, this is a surreal movie experience which will leave you laughing, reeling and talking incessantly as you leave the theater. And that's what it's all about, isn't it?
