If the producers are willing to sacrifice their lead actor to supporting status, it tends to diminish the project in most prognosticators' eyes. Though he has no chance of beating Peter O'Toole or Forest Whitaker for best actor, Griffiths has no chance of beating Adam Beach, Eddie Murphy or even Ja...

I finally watched a movie that could challenge Monster's Ball as the worst of the decade: Hard Candy.

I would go into detail, but it's too late for me to be very coherent; Overall, though, it's just a disgusting, vulgar, unpleasant piece of ####.

I don't think that this is the first time he's said something against the Iraq War.

I watched the first season, and watched six episodes or so of the second season before my DVR deleted the rest of the episodes.

The episode where Dennis and Dee went on welfare was probably the single funniest TV episode I've seen since The Office's "Diversity Day".

Tim Goodman, of the San Francisco Chronicle, begs to differ: "Desperate Housewives," on the other hand, grew so wearisome last year that it was the poster series for (well-deserved) critical blowback. The writing was off; the tone was way off. Wisteria Lane is soapier and more stupid than ever. It ...

If untrue, then he must be captured sooner rather than later. Hopefully the debate over his passing will bring him out of hiding to make another video or somthing that intelligence officials can use to locate him. US Intelligence hasn't been trying to capture Bin Laden for awhile now; Late last yea...

criddic3 wrote:"Ghosts of Mississippi," which did garner a nod for James Woods.

Nearly ten years later, I still think that's one of the four or five worst nominated performances of the 90's. What were they thinking?

I didn't like it. The real theme of the show seems to be how Aaron Sorkin has returned to save TV, and the show came off as a piece of smug self-absorption on his part. Sarah Paulson's character is one of the worst written chracters on TV (based on the pilot), and yet Sorkin no doubt thinks he's ma...

(I'm sure people will disagree. The folks at Slant will probably champion her for an Oscar nod, so what do I know.) Why is Slant Magazine always used as some kind of target for derision on message boards lately? On another message board someone said he was looking forward to The Black Dahlia until ...

My favourite was when he (as Ali G) was interviewing a bunch of religious leaders about God. I swear I nearly wet myself laughing. "Ain't it hypocriticalist that so many nuns also work as strippers?" Ali G segments were almost always priceless; his police training routine was one of my favorites. A...

I'm glad CBS showed this last night, unedited. They even had shot some new material for last night's broadcast, showing what had happened to the men in the firehouse since 9/11. (That firehouse didn't lose any firemen on 9/11, even though it was very close to Ground Zero, and some of their men were...
