LA Film Fest 2014 – Best of Fest ‘Wrap Up’
It’s ended, the curtain is down and projector is silent. That’s right film fans, the LA Film Fest 2014 is officially over and what a year it was. We got to check out various films – both good and bad – over the span of nine days that made for one fun time at the movies.

Well, the fest has listed their favorites already, but now it’s our turn. Far from the politics and giving you the real skinny on what’s...

National Teacher Day: Our Favorite Onscreen Teachers

May 7th, 2013 8:00am EDT
School of Rock
 

May 7, 2013 marks National Teacher Day, and to honor those who have educated and inspired us, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite onscreen teachers.

Dewey Finn (Jack Black), “School of Rock” (2003)

Dewey Finn may have been a rowdy, unemployed wannabe rock star, but after scheming his way into the classroom he became a new kind of role model. Dewey taught his students the true meaning of rock ‘n’ roll and encouraged them to rock out in every aspect of their lives.

Memorable Quote: “I have been touched by your kids... and I'm pretty sure that I've touched them.”

'Dexter' Recap: 'Nebraska' (6.08)

November 13th, 2011 9:55pm EST
Dexter
After being visited by his dead brother last week, Dexter Morgan is a little messed up in this week's Dexter. Who could blame him? Plus, we take a step back to the fantastic fourth season...

If Brother Sam was the angel in Dexter's life, Brian (Christian Camargo) does a great job of being the devil on the other shoulder. "You don't turn the other cheek, you slice it," he reminds Dex, whose world is further rocked when Debra informs him that Arthur Mitchell's wife and daughter have been killed. She thinks it's the Trinity Killer striking again, but Dexter knows better. He suspects th...

'Dexter' Recap: 'Just Let Go' (6.06)

November 6th, 2011 10:00pm EST
Dexter
This week's Dexter sees our hero make an important decision about his direction in life...while those around him continue to have no idea where they're headed.

Dex gets the news from Deb that Brother Sam has been shot, which forces him to abandon his stalking of Travis and makes him seriously angry. He quickly zeroes in on Leo Hernandez, a gang member who replaced the man Dex killed. He doesn't get a chance to exact justice, though, as Leo is shot and killed in a standoff with the cops.

All should be well, but Dexter finds himself not so convinced of Leo's guilt after all. The r...

'Dexter' Recap: 'A Horse of a Different Color' (6.04)

October 23rd, 2011 9:08pm EDT
Dexter
If last week's Dexter was more of a standalone episode, this week's throws us right back into the season-long arc, inducing squirms and gasps in equal measure.

Dexter's decided to go to the baptism Brother Sam invited him to after all, even though the idea of religious faith goes right over his head. It's too bad that they don't have time to have a discussion, because it might've come in handy when Dex is called out to deal with the "wicked rodeo" we saw at the end of last week's episode. New guy Mike (Billy Brown) quickly points out to the Metro team that it has something to do w...

'Dexter' Recap: 'Smokey and the Bandit' (6.03)

October 16th, 2011 10:00pm EDT
Dexter
Last week's Dexter gave us a good idea where season six is headed. This week, we see a little more - just enough to get me concerned about that direction - but you'll have to wait for the real surprises.

Dexter's got a bad feeling when a murdered prostitute reminds him of the modus operandi of a serial killer he once tracked. He's convinced that the now-elderly Walter Kenney (Ronny Cox) hasn't come to Miami just to retire. Getting close to Kenney is not a good time for Dex, who has to suffer through the man's horrible golf game and near-constant complaining. It's funny if only for th...

'Dexter' Recap: 'Once Upon A Time' (6.02)

October 9th, 2011 10:00pm EDT
Dexter
He might be a serial killer, but this week's Dexter left me wanting to hug Dexter Morgan - after all, he's just realized that he may be his son's worst enemy.

Harrison's getting older now, and Dexter is disturbed to find out that his son has picked up on some of his father's habits, making repeated references to "daddy's box" of blood slides. Having previously stated that he doesn't want to pass his Dark Passenger on to the tot, Dex makes a painful decision at episode's end: that he can no longer show his son his real nature, only the one that everyone else believes to be true.

TV on DVD: New 'CSI,' 'CSI: Miami' and 'CSI: NY'

October 6th, 2011 1:30pm EDT
CSI
The CSI franchise has become a mainstay on CBS - and likewise it's a fixture on DVD shelves. With the new seasons underway, the previous years of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, CSI: Miami and CSI: NY have arrived for you to add to your collection. Here's a look at all three new releases.

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation - Season 11

The Show: Season 11 is Laurence Fishburne's third and last as Dr. Raymond Langston. I'm pretty sure that I'm in the minority here, but I liked Fishburne and thought he did a decent job while facing an audience that was and still is incredibly attached to...

Previewing 'Dexter' Season 6 With Jennifer Carpenter

October 2nd, 2011 11:30am EDT
Dexter
Dexter Morgan has sliced his way into a bloody niche on TV. As it begins its sixth season tonight, Showtime's Dexter can boast both critical acclaim and an audience that's enraptured by the life of Miami's most loved serial killer. Dexter's biggest supporter - and also the largest threat to his lethal secret - is his sister, homicide detective Debra Morgan.

The show might be called Dexter, but Deb has been my favorite character on the series. She might have a smart mouth, but beyond that, she has an earnestness to bust the bad guys that I find admirable. She also displays a remarka...

Producers promised Dexter would explore faith this season and in this first-look photo, it looks like he's earned his wings — in blood, at least.

Dexter Exclusive: In Season 6, Dexter finds... faith?

When "the avenging angel returns," Dexter (Michael C. Hall) will take on single parenting while hiding his secret hobby from his increasingly suspicious sister. The Showtime series will further the spirituality theme with the addition to the cast of Edward James Olmos as a renowned professor of religious history and Mos as an ex-con who found his mission in life by helping other cons.

Gondry's 3-D Visuals Spoiled By Dull Humor In 'The Green Hornet'

January 14th, 2011 9:41am EST
The Green Hornet
“The Green Hornet” blends the playful visual style of director Michel Gondry (“Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”), with the humor of writers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (“Superbad”). You might think the combination of these creative forces would be a recipe for success however the end result is rather lackluster. There are some cool 3-D fight scenes in “The Green Hornet,” which are largely marred by unintelligent jokes.

Rogen and Goldberg adapt The Green Hornet superhero made popular by a 1960s television series and a 1930s radio series created by George W. Trendle. According to t...

The Best And Worst Super Bowl Halftime Shows (Videos)

The Who
The Who will do the honors of entertaining Super Bowl halftime audiences that don't switch over to the Puppy Bowl this year. The history of the halftime show is a surprising display of ups-and-downs, from mind-blowing performances to corny overproduced ego trips.

Best: Michael Jackson, Super Bowl XXVII

The halftime show was hurting. Two years prior, the New Kids on the Block performance was pre-empted by coverage on Desert Storm and their performance was edited down and shown after the game. Then, FOX swooped in and scooped million of viewers away from the halftime show the next year (mo...

'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' Recap: The Waitress Is Getting Married

Last night marked the return of one of Sunny's best recurring characters - the unnamed waitress. And where the waitress goes, Charlie is sure to follow. Yes, kids, it was the first true "Charlie-heavy" episode of the season and it...was…glorious.

Although it seems like a weird plot point introduced strictly for laughs, the discovery of a beehive in the bar is an important one - and not just to showcase Charlie's lack of knowledge of ANY subject. For whatever reason, Charlie wants honey. Even though he's decided that the bees are actually honey-less hornets, he rigs up a cardboard box wit...

Caprica
Long ago, in a popular culture period far, far away, to watch or read science fiction was synonymously tied to the then derogatory term of 'geek'. Now that stereotype has somewhat weakened. One of the many reasons for this change was the Ron Moore reimagining of 'Battlestar Galactica' in 2004. 'BSG' was a hit not just amongst the typical sci-fi fan base, as it is most commonly discussed as a space opera, but to more non-traditional fans. When 'Heroes' debuted on NBC it was a break in network format. Many questioned why it was not to air on the sister channel, then, Sci-Fi, and spurred d...

Top Five Questions We'd Like Answered In 'Battlestar Galactica's' Final Season

Sometimes, when letting my mind wander to the various odd and fluffy locales it frequents while unoccupied (read: at my day job), I find myself smacked in the face anew by the sobering realization that, beginning January 16th, we are in a ten-episode sprint to the Very End of what many have deemed to be one of the Best Shows Ever. Indeed, Battlestar Galactica returns in one week, with ten final episodes in its brilliant four-season (and two-TV-movie) run. While I'm obviously thrilled and teeth-gnashingly excited for new episodes, I'm also a bit antsy-there are, after all, a LOT of loose e...

Our Favorite TV Ensembles

June 12th, 2008 9:00am EDT
Lost
An ensemble cast is a group of actors in which each character/actor is assigned an equal level of importance to the story. Sometimes even if there is an established "main character," a show can be considered an ensemble because individuals are treated with the same care and development as everyone else on the show.

This sort of cast style gives the audience a chance to connect with several different characters rather than just one; if a viewer does not like one of the characters or cannot relate to them, there will be several more to choose from. It creates very broad storylines and v...
