Did 'The Good Wife' Season 6 Reach Its Full Potential?

5/11/2015 9:07am EDT
'The Good Wife' Finale Recap And Review: 'Wanna Partner?' - Let'
The sixth season of The Good Wife draws to a close with "Wanna Partner?," which sees Alicia Florrick put the finishing touches on her new career direction as well as tangle with the government one more time over a secret police facility detaining one of her clients. But does it cap off the season the way it should? Yes and no.

With her new home office all set up, Alicia is chatting with Eli and Peter, the latter of whom says he's been asked to run for President of the United States by the Illinois Democratic Committee.

Before she can do more than awkwardly chuckle at that, she gets a voic...

'The Good Wife': What Does The Future Hold For Alicia?

'The Good Wife' Recap And Review: 'Don't Fail' - Where To From H
After last week's drama-filled episode, The Good Wife has just two more left in its bag for season six. And the first of these, "Don't Fail," sees Alicia having more flashbacks to the earlier days of her law career. When she's not trying to write her new book.

The show takes pains to show us how mundane her life has become now that she's no longer State's Attorney-to-be and isn't sure of her future with the firm that she founded. She has to hang up on telemarketers, go shopping at the hardware store, and call all the donors who gave money to her now failed campaign so that they can hang up...

Who Is 'The Good Wife's' Matthew Goode?

Who Is 'The Good Wife's' Matthew Goode?
You can't really replace Josh Charles, considering that he's one of the best actors of all-time. But as The Good Wife moves on from Will Gardner, if we've indeed already met his replacement, he's a pretty good catch, too. Matthew Goode is a damn fine actor in his own right, and if you don't already know him, well, that's what we're here for.

Prior to his playing top state's attorney Finn Polmar in Sunday's pivotal episode, you probably recognized Goode as Mandy Moore's love interest in the rom-com Chasing Liberty a decade ago. Or a little closer to the present tense, he was Amy Adams' love...

Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling Among Contenders To Play Batman

Josh Brolin
Zack Snyder's reported list of actors in the running to play Batman in an upcoming crossover with Superman includes some intriguing selections.

At the top of the list, as far as name recognition, are Josh Brolin and Ryan Gosling. Both have worked with Warner Bros. on Gangster Squad. Broslin is also working with the studio for Robert Rodriguez's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Gosling, on the other hand, seems to be attached to just about everything these days.

However, the trend for DC Comics superhero movies is hiring lesser-known names so that their star power doesn't overshadow the chara...

Matthew Goode Slams 'Leap Year'

Matthew Goode
Matthew Goode has slammed his new movie Leap Year as "turgid" - insisting the Amy Adams movie will be labeled "the worst film of 2010." The Brit plays the Enchanted star's love interest in the new romantic comedy, which tells the story of an American woman traveling to Dublin, Ireland to propose to her boyfriend on February 29th during a leap year.

However, Goode insists he only took the role because the shoot was filming on location close to his home in Britain.

He says, "It's turgid. I just know that there are a lot of people who will say it is the worst film of 2010. (The location) wa...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Daybreakers,' 'Youth In Revolt' & More

1/4/2010 9:44am EST
A belated Happy New Year to all. I hope you each had happy holidays and got a chance to view all of the movies you wanted to see.

I haven't seen James Cameron's "Avatar" yet, although it's the top movie on my list right now. I've heard the film showcases some impressive visual effects, but that its dialogue and character development are not as strong. Regardless, I'm still anxious to see for myself.

2010 starts out with the release of "Daybreakers," "Youth in Revolt," "Leap Year," "Crazy on the Outside," "Wonderful World," and "Bitch Slap."


By 2017 a plague has ...

Review: A Fan's Reaction to 'Watchmen'

3/5/2009 11:09am EST
I grew up in a comic book store, so most of my days after school were spent sitting in a beanbag chair reading graphic novels. It has been a fairly exciting few years for comic fans with the emergence of the mainstream embracing what used to be considered a nerdy habit. With big blockbuster movies like Spider-Man, X-Men, and The Dark Knight taking over the Entertainment industry, it is easier to forgive bad comic movies like Catwoman or Daredevil because at least they're getting these stories out there. At least people are starting to know and love what we've known and loved for decades. Ye...
