Two Jews' Review 'Mirror Mirror' And Only One Feels The Happily Ever After (Video)

March 30th, 2012 11:00am EDT
Mirror Mirror
Two Jews on Film - By Joan Alperin Schwartz: Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest Of Us All? The answer to that question is definitely Miss Julia Roberts, who plays Snow White's (Lily Collins) evil stepmother/queen, in director Tarsem Singh's new film, 'Mirror Mirror'.

Ms. Roberts absolutely nails the part.

In fact, she is the only reason to see this remake of the classic fairytale. I think this is one of her best performances in a long time.

For those of you not familiar with the story (yes, it is possible) Snow White's daddy, the King (Sean Bean) disappeared one dark and storm...

The Vampire Diaries, CW

When "The Vampires Diaries" aired last fall it managed to become much more than just the supernatural "Gossip Girl'' that many had expected. It was a well-written, well-acted series that was intriguing enough to make you want to tune in every week. Its first season was a sexy, violent ride that once a week made the new vampire craze a little...

'Tis the season to slaughter turkeys. Did anybody not see former Vice President wannabe Sarah Palin hold a Q&A downstage of a turkey’s obvious death? (Go HERE if you didn't.)

On a more cheerful note, here are a few gems from Hollywood made for the animal lover in all of us:

Best All-Around Animal Film

The Adventures of Milo and Otis

The film is the best all-animal movie, with March of the Penguins coming in as an understudy. A documentary showing a death of a cute baby penguin? Definitely going to lose against a Japanese (yes, really, Japanese) movie with Dudley Moore as a...

10 Worst TV Shows Of The Last 10 Years

January 25th, 2008 1:52pm EST
According to Jim
There have been some truly phenomenal television shows produced over the last 10 years. Works of art that will continue to be appreciated and discussed for years to come. But what's the fun in talking about that?

For each great show created since 1998, there have been at least five or six terrible ones. Often these truly odious programs have a mercifully short lifespan. Occasionally, one will unexpectedly survive and thrive, shining proudly on screen and mocking the infinitely more creative, entertaining and intelligent programs that it has outlasted.
