'SYTYCD' Recap: Lady Gaga Adds To A Great Night Of 'Dance'

July 28th, 2011 4:34pm EDT
Lady Gaga Adds To  A Great Night ON 'So You Think You Can Dance'
There were so many great things to say about the Lady Gaga guest hosted episode of “So You Think You Can Dance,” that the megastar’s warm presence was simply the icing on an already delicious cake. Nonetheless, major props to the pop icon for actually recognizing that and being comfortable enough in her two foot-plus high heels to (for the most part) cede the spotlight and celebrate the show’s contestants as the stars of the night.

A truly classy Lady, that Gaga… and a damn fine guest judge who critiqued each performance with a balanced mix of encouragement and constructive advice. Sure, ...

Review: 'Pirates Of The Caribbean' - On Stranger Tides' - 'Two Jews On Film' Says Number Four Finds The Gold (Video)

May 17th, 2011 11:44am EDT
Pirates Of The Caribbean On Stranger Tides
'Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' directed by Rob Marshall is the fourth film of this franchise...And in my opinion, the best.

Johnny Depp returns as Captain Jack Sparrow but this time, except for Geoffrey Rush (Captain Hector Barbossa) and Kevin R. McNally (Joshamee Gibbs) there's a whole new set of characters that may or may not want to do him harm...including the beautiful, enigmatic, Pirate...Angelica (Penelope Cruz).

After an edge of your seat sword fight, Angelica knocks Jack out. When Jack awakens, he finds himself a prisoner aboard a ship called 'Queen Anne's R...

Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies - 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,' & 'Midnight in Paris'

Pirates of the Caribbean
I still have not had the opportunity to see the much talked about “Thor,” which seems to be receiving mixed reviews from everyone I know. Some people I’ve spoken to have loved it, while others have despised it, so I will have to see it for myself soon.

Last week though, I checked out the indie drama “Hesher” starring Rainn Wilson, Natalie Portman, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt which I loved. It’s definitely not your typical story of recovery from grief, mainly because of the character Hesher, played by Gordon Levitt. The squatter invites himself into the home of Paul (Wilson) and his son TJ ...

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

December 14th, 2009 9:25am EST
AVATAR
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 ...

The Cineplexes Are Alive With The Sound Of Music: The Return Of The Movie Musical

May 6th, 2008 8:30am EDT
Hairspray
On April 22's episode of American Idol, renowned composer and lyricist Andrew Lloyd Weber stood patiently trying to teach a blank-eyed Jason Castro the song, "Memory" from one of history's most popular musicals, "Cats." Smiled the clueless Castro, "I didn't even know a cat was singing it."

Quell'horror! Is this the extent of musical theater knowledge possessed by today's generation? In fairness, Castro is from Texas, not exactly around the corner from Broadway. Perhaps had there been a big-screen version of "Cats," more people under the age of 30 would be hip to the magic and majesty...
