The First Zombie On 'Walking Dead' Doesn't Look Like This Anymore
One thing we know for sure about Donald Trump: he doesn't like to lose. He hates losers. He even has varying degrees of loserdom in his verbal arsenal: "major," "proven," "total" and "disgruntled" losers, to name a few.
I had the pleasure of chatting with Empire's newest musical genius, Sean Cross while the build up was intensifying. He let me in on some of his intimate memories with close friend and mentor, Producer Swizz Beatz.
The demands of a major motion picture and its limitations may be too conventional and narrow a box for the complex and world-changing Jobs.
We also discuss the latest headlines out of Hollywood, including a franchise onslaught that's going to see four more Transformers films, two more Mad Max films, and at least one more Prometheus.
A true winner, as Trump claims himself to be in life, would go all-in. Now. Immediately. But, Trump is not a true winner. He is an insecure, whining showman. A wimp.
This beautiful story about courage, principles, women and the exceptional men who can come along to love them set in Pakistan, opens as one of those idyllic Bollywood films, something in the vein of Mission Kashmir.
Dancing with the Stars may bill itself as a splashy dancing entertainment. But once again, after the October 7th "Most Memorable Year" show, last night, it proves that it's the most emotionally resonating confessional since Oprah went off the air.
Unlike those who've taken to social media to express their disgust over Cosmopolitan Magazine's crowing of the Kardashians as "America's First Family," I've failed to understand the big to-do about the headline on the cover of their November issue. Love or hate them, the Kardashians embody what our country has come to represent to the rest of the world; vanity and excess.
As I watched the reenactment of Petit's walk between the towers, I marveled at his heroism. Who needs Marvel comic heroes when our children can see the wonder of human spirit in all its glorious action?
Television is an inherently visual medium, but how important is it to actually watch it? Critics of my viewing methodology insist that I am missing out on the essence of television. I don't deny that I have transformed the experience from a visual to a literary one.
Like many singers, Kimberly Hawkins started singing at a young age. "I started singing in school choirs in junior high, around age 12." the Chicago-born, Aurora Illinois-raised singer states. "I did musicals in junior high, high school and beyond."
You will fail so many times that failure becomes normal. All the quotes relating to success always have something to do with failure. Each week Max and Caroline fail like "true bosses" at just about everything, but never give up.
The beauty of cinema is that it is and always has been such an organic storytelling medium and art form as ideas, concepts, genres, and styles are ever evolving based off of what has come before, accompanied by the contemporary discoveries that have and will come to be.
The watchword in all films of this type is realism--usually injected through live sound recording (rather than miming) of performances. (Still, there aren't many mixing desks in sight up the back of these "real" music venues.) But Ricki and the Flash plays things just a little too safe.
