'Homeland' Season Finale: Is That All There Is?

'Homeland' Season Finale Recap: Is That All There Is?
Before I begin with my last recap for Homeland season 4 (*sob*), I’d like to give some shout-outs. Firstly, thanks to Starpulse for letting me write these inane recaps. Thanks to the three of you who read these recaps (especially my girls Erin and Suzie) and the ones who Tweet with me every Sunday night. Big thanks to Homeland actor Maury Sterling (Max rules!) who has Tweeted with me and the other fans all season long during every episode. It was a Hollywood-adjacent type thrill for me when he would like or re-tweet. His wife is real nice, too. Ok, on to the end.

'Homeland's' Latest Is Very Intense

'Homeland' Recap Season 4 Episode 9: Latest Episode Is Beyond In
Previously - Everyone had a heart attack and died because this show is too intense.

You know how the ABC marketing team promos Scandal’s winter finale as this big deal where pulses will be pounded and none of us will ever be the same? Well, I’ve pulled this chair out for them so they can have a seat. They are the generic brand of suspenseful TV drama when compared to Homeland. I’m probably more into this show right now than my marriage (To the other Mr. Harvey: I kid, I kid!) because this “Brody who?” season 4 is killing it. Last night’s “winter finale” had me literally BELLOWING at the TV...

Keira Knightley
British actress Keira Knightley sang away her blues following her split from longtime boyfriend Rupert Friend by hitting a karaoke bar with Sienna Miller and a group of pals on Thursday night.

The couple, which met on the set of 2005 movie Pride & Prejudice, decided to end its five-year relationship shortly before Christmas, according to the actress' father Will.

But Knightley has refused to wallow in self-pity at home, and hit the streets of London for a night of sing-along fun with friends, including her The Edge of Love co-star Miller.

The group showed off their vocal skills on tracks...

British actress Keira Knightley has split from her longtime boyfriend Rupert Friend.

The couple, who met on the set of 2005 movie Pride & Prejudice, mutually decided to end their five-year relationship shortly before Christmas.

Knightley's father Will tells Britain's The Sun, "Yes, they have broken up. But that's the way things go, unfortunately. The only option is to get on with things."

"They were together for quite a long time and it is always hard breaking up. She's focused on her work."

A Young Woman Comes Of Age In 'The Young Victoria'

12/18/2009 8:07am EST
The Young Victoria
The Young Victoria, which makes its debut in America today, is a romantic period film that depicts a realistic historical view of 19th century United Kingdom, and more specifically the post-Victorian era and early reign of England's Queen Victoria.

Directed by Jean-Marc Vallée, and starring Emily Blunt, the motion picture supports more than one parallel storylines to bring about a cohesive picture of Vallée's main purpose.

The film follows Blunt, cast as a very young strong willed Princess Victoria during her pre-eminent rise and monarchical ascendancy, her struggles prior to her...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Avatar,' 'Nine' & More

12/14/2009 9:25am EST
Last week I had a chance to catch "Invictus," director Clint Eastwood's latest effort. A lot of early buzz suggests the film should be a Best Picture contender at the Academy Awards, but I personally wasn't too impressed.

While "Invictus" isn't a terrible movie, it certainly isn't Eastwood's best. In many ways it just feels forced because the film tries too hard to send an inspirational message.

Eastwood explores a number of subplots that he never fully fleshes out, and he fails to establish the proper dramatic tension that makes a sports picture so powerful. As an audience member ...

This Week's Movie Buzz: See It, Rent It, Or Skip It?

Transformers 2
I got the chance to see "Moon," this past weekend and I really enjoyed it. Sam Rockwell's interaction between the cloned versions of himself was brilliant, and Kevin Spacey was entertaining as the lunar station's computer.

The movie's effects were rock solid and the music was great. My only real complaints were its slow pace, and that I felt the reasons why he was being cloned weren't adequately explained.

This week we have the arrival of another highly anticipated summer blockbuster: "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen." I will be seeing it tonight, and I'm anxious to see how ...

Starpulse's Explosive Summer Movie Preview

5/1/2009 10:06am EDT
Star Trek
Since the dawn of the American cinematic blockbuster in the late 1970s and early 1980s, moviegoers have eagerly waited for May - the unofficial beginning of summertime. This summer is no different. Films, and most popular media, are social mirrors, and this summer season supports that. The large box office contenders all deal with very similar themes: escapism and the support of the lone, outlaw hero figure (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Star Trek, Terminator Salvation, Up, Transformers 2, Public Enemies, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, Inglourious Basterds, et...
