Gary Yates Talks Indie Gem 'High Life'

4/29/2015 12:03pm EDT
Living The 'High Life': Gary Yates Looks Back On Indie Comedy Cl
The 2009 film High Life is a hilarious and criminally underrated movie that everyone needs to have seen at least once in your life. We say "criminally" because it's a heist flick, focused on the ambitious but unfortunate plot of a quartet of criminals.

There's psuedo-leader Dick (a brilliant Timothy Olyphant, in the best comedic performance of his career), unnerving Bug (Stephen Eric McIntyre, who plays the part so well), ladies' man Billy (a loveable Rossif Sutherland) and fast-talking Donnie (a remarkable Joe Anderson from The Divide).

This Canadian feature is truly one of those under t...

Breaking Down The 'Justified' Series Finale: Who Lived And Who Died?

4/15/2015 8:22am EDT
'Justified' Series Finale Recap And Review: 'The Promise' - Who
After six seasons, one of television's best series came to an end on Tuesday. Justified wrapped up its near-perfect run with "The Promise," which delivered the bloody showdowns we've come to expect from this series while also taking near its entire fourth act to spend some final time with these unique, beloved characters and remind us that they're the reason we kept coming back to Harlan for years on end. It was everything that it should've been and then some.

Picking up exactly where last week's episode left off, Raylan is in the process of being detained thanks to the BOLO that AUSA Vasq...

'Justified,' TV's Equivalent Of A Great American Novel

4/14/2015 12:05pm EDT
Saying Goodbye To 'Justified': Is This TV's Great American Novel
If you're a reader, you've probably heard the expression "Great American Novel." It refers to a fictional work that displays the culture of the United States at a specific time, and figuratively, is the term for the greatest American book ever written.

As the last episode of FX's Justified is on the horizon, it becomes apparent that the Timothy Olyphant led series could be TV's equivalent of the Great American Novel, both literally and figuratively.

One needs only to look to its ultimate source: Elmore Leonard, one of the great authors in American history. His writing could never be compa...

'Justified' Cast Talks Series Finale, How Will It End?

4/13/2015 12:05pm EDT
'Justified': The Cast Reflects Before The Series Finale
As FX's Justified wraps its six-season run of excellence this Tuesday, we had one more opportunity to ask its cast and producer how it's been so good. Starpulse joined series stars Timothy Olyphant, Joelle Carter, Erica Tazel and Jacob Pitts, as well as executive producer Graham Yost, at the Paley Center for Media last week to look back on the show and ponder the future.

"It's been amazing," reflected Joelle. "They say art is like life and I think it's so true. I think I have grown with Ava. I've grown in my own capacity as an actress to evolve and to trust myself more, and they've given m...

'Justified': The Penultimate Episode Rundown

4/8/2015 10:02am EDT
'Justified' Recap And Review: 'Collateral' - Just One Showdown L
After bodies started to hit the floor last week, everything continues spiraling out of control in this week's penultimate episode of Justified. One more recurring character buys the farm and another probably isn't far behind, while both Raylan and Boyd are invited to start questioning their motivations - but neither are interested in doing so. By the end of "Collateral," everyone's in trouble and you get the sense that this show is going to come down to who's the better survivor.

While Boyd gets a new ride at gunpoint, Tim and Art find Raylan's car and his badge, much to Art's massive anno...

'Justified' Recap: Trust

3/25/2015 10:37am EDT
'Justified' Recap And Review: 'Trust' - As In, You Shouldn't Tru
We're now into the final four episodes of Justified, and so naturally it's time for some bullets and betrayals. This week's installment, "Trust," is all about people who should not have trusted other people, and paying the price for that faith. You certainly didn't expect everyone to stay on the same sides forever, did you?

Katherine is ranting to Duffy about last time's explosion, although she still doesn't think that highly of him. He reminds her that they're still on the same side, except for that they're not, and tells her to find out if Markham is going to move his money out of the va...

'Justified' Gets Back On Track

3/11/2015 10:02am EDT
'Justified' Recap And Review: 'Dark As A Dungeon' - Of Deaths An
After stumbling for the first time last week, Justified gets back on track with "Dark As A Dungeon," which wraps up the loose end that is Ty Walker while also continuing along its subtle track of making parallels all the way back to season one.

Raylan is doing some housecleaning over at his father's place, because one should properly store one's shotgun and flush any pills before selling said house, when he finds his dad's footlocker full of various keepsakes. Raylan being Raylan, he takes it out into the front yard and lights it on fire. The only thing spared is a key that he elects to ho...

'Justified' Recap And Review: 'The Hunt' - One Marshal And A Baby

3/4/2015 10:06am EST
Remember when Raylan Givens became a father? The baby Givens has been understandably overlooked for most of the final season of Justified, but Willa is front and center in "The Hunt," along with her mother Winona (a returning Natalie Zea) and oh yeah, all those bad guys we're still trying to find.

Picking up where last week's episode left off, Raylan, Rachel, Tim and associates are still looking for the wounded Ty Walker (Garret Dillahunt), who isn't going to get any help from Markham or surviving henchman Seabass (Scott Grimes), whom Markham bribes to abandon his former CO.

But Raylan ba...

'Justified' Recap And Review: 'Alive Day' - In Which People End Up Dead

2/25/2015 9:03am EST
'Justified' Recap And Review: 'Alive Day' - In Which People End
For an episode called "Alive Day," this week's Justified deals an awful lot with death. As in, several people meet theirs by the time the credits roll. This is how it always starts on this show: first the small fish start to be bumped off, then the next thing you know we're climbing the food chain until there's a whole collection of bodies. But who's really deserving of their demise?

Naturally, this episode picks up near where last week left off, because that ending was too intriguing not to do something with. Boyd is understandably suspicious to find Raylan's car out in front of Ava's hou...

'Justified' Recap: 'Sounding' - Ava's Gone Missing?!

2/18/2015 7:15am EST
'Justified' Recap And Review: 'Sounding' - Ava's Gone Missing?!
The last time we saw Ava Crowder, she was in a panic, so it's no surprise that this week's episode of Justified starts with her and is heavily about our favorite former criminal. In "Sounding," Ava's still convinced that Katherine Hale knows she's a mole, and so makes a drastic choice to protect herself. One that Raylan, who has probably never had a moment of panic in his life, does not like.

Ava is biting her nails while Boyd goes on again about their potential future; she expresses her skepticism about his plans. As they roll through a state police checkpoint, the troopers notice that sh...

'Justified' Recap And Review: 'The Trash And The Snake' - Many Unhappy Returns

2/11/2015 9:04am EST
'Justified' Recap And Review: 'The Trash And The Snake' - Many U
In the fourth installment of its last season, Justified drops some massive hints about what's to come in its massive criminal slugfest, then treats us to the returns of two former characters and one person who literally explodes. We're not kidding. This is a big episode, as if you expected anything less.

The morning after last week's episode, Boyd and Ava appear to have kissed and made up, but as soon as he leaves their hotel room she's on her phone and then out the door to meet with Raylan. He reminds her that he's not asking her to sleep with Boyd, which she uses to take a dig at him abo...

'Justified' Recap: 'Noblesse Oblige' - A Kidnapping And A Fatherhood Lesson

2/4/2015 8:47am EST
'Justified' Recap And Review: 'Noblesse Oblige' - A Kidnapping A
So now that we know the major players in the final season of Justified, and they know who they all are, just what the heck are they all going to do? That's the general thrust of "Noblesse Oblige," in which everyone pokes at everyone, someone winds up in a barn, and Raylan does damage to somebody else's reproductive ability.

Where does one start? Well, first things first, it's been six hours since last week's episode and Boyd and Ava are now drunk on the bar. Literally on the bar. But Boyd's attempt at getting some action is derailed by Ava getting a text message - she tells him she's got t...

'Justified' Recap And Review: 'Cash Game' - The Bad Get Worse

1/28/2015 9:05am EST
'Justified' Recap And Review: 'Cash Game' - The Bad Get Worse
After we returned to Kentucky with a bang last week, Justified keeps the tension up with "Cash Game," the second episode of its final season. It gives important information to both the characters and the audience, as plots and people's identities start to come into focus, including some more fantastic guest stars plus another scene-stealin performance from Jacob Pitts that's the cherry on top.

Ava's having another inebriated morning, interrupted only by the realization that there is someone in her backyard barn. She grabs her revolver and heads that way; not pleased to find Boyd there, she...

'Justified' Premiere Recap And Review: 'Fate's Right Hand' - In With A Bang

1/21/2015 9:11am EST
'Justified' Premiere Recap And Review: 'Fate's Right Hand' - In
So, here we are: the beginning of the end of Justified. There's sadness that comes with that, obviously, given that this has been one of television's consistently excellent shows from the day it went on the air a little less than five years ago. But there's also a sense of excitement, because "Fate's Right Hand" proves that this show is not screwing around, and is going to finish things off as strong as it's ever been.

Winona is still raising Raylan's daughter Willa, and wondering why he's not there considering that he was supposed to be headed their way. But the reason why is obvious: it'...

'Justified' Recap: 'Restitution'

4/9/2014 9:08am EDT
'Justified' Recap: 'Restitution'
It's that time again: the time in which Justified wraps up another violent, complex and witty season. This time around, it's tempered slightly by the knowledge that next season will be the show's last, and some of the pieces for the ultimate end are already in play. With that in the back of our minds, let's say goodbye to Season 5 and look forward to what this tells us about Season 6.

Daryl Crowe is already mouthing off within the first thirty seconds (and unwisely getting into a staredown with Tim Gutterson; we would not want to cross Jacob Pitts). No one at the Marshals Office is amused ...

'Justified' Recap: 'Wrong Roads'

3/12/2014 9:10am EDT
'Justified' Recap: 'Wrong Roads'
What happens when Raylan Givens goes on vacation? A lot more than ever would happen on any of our vacations. But that's to be expected, because nobody wants to watch an hour of Justified that involves Raylan taking his daughter to Disney World or looking for a parking space at the mall.

But before we get to that, we're still dealing with the misfit brigade, who've at least managed to find their way into the United States, so they've accomplished something since we saw them last. They're still trying to move product back into the country, while Boyd and Daryl are drinking in the back office...

'Justified' Recap: 'Kill The Messenger'

2/12/2014 8:25am EST
'Justified' Recap: 'Kill The Messenger'
How do you follow up a pivotal episode of Justified? Break some stuff, kidnap some guys, and make Raylan Givens angry. This is basically everything that any sane person should never do, which means damned if it isn't fun to watch.

Art's already kind of drunk when Raylan finds him, which isn't a good sign. A worse sign is Art punching Raylan, which seems to indicate that Art has put all the pieces regarding Nicky Augustine's death together. The look on Raylan's face as Art leaves him there says all we need to know. And that's our entire teaser. One scene with one word of dialogue in it. How...

'Justified' Recap: 'Shot All To Hell'

2/5/2014 8:35am EST
'Justified' Recap: 'Shot All To Hell'
When the showrunner tells you this is one of the most important episodes in the series, you come into it with seriously high expectations. But seriously, when has Justified not delivered? Bodies fall, hearts get broken, and Raylan's credibility takes a hit in this week's top-shelf episode.

An "anonymous tip" has led our resident Sheriff Jackass to find the dead bodies that Boyd uncovered at the end of last week's festivities, and he calls Paxton in the middle of the night because the tipster also stated that Paxton "made a deal with the local criminal element." Yes, Mr. Paxton, Boyd Crowde...

'Justified' Recap And Review: 'Good Intentions'

1/22/2014 8:25am EST
After last week's not so sterling episode, Justified is back to its old ways. Picking up right where things left off, Boyd is still searching for his drugs, leading him to accuse Wynn of ripping him off, at least until Wynn points out there's like a half-dozen suspects. And Raylan is busy getting laid, at least until Art ruins it. Thank you, Art.

Our boss marshal tells Raylan that Monroe (the guy he arrested last week, played by Xander Berkeley) will be out tomorrow and probably pissed that Raylan is using his house as a hotel. Raylan doesn't really care, because he's fixated on Alison (Am...

'Justified' Recap And Review: 'The Kids Aren't All Right'

1/15/2014 8:21am EST
If you thought last week's episode of Justified was packed full of TV goodness, then you'll love this week. Not only do we have three actors who should be immediately recognizable to any small-screen aficionado, but we've also brought back the great (and greatly underused) members of the show's own supporting cast, in telling a mostly standalone story that serves as a fantastic anti-drug PSA.

Two very not-nice dudes (played by Wood Harris of The Wire and Steve Harris of The Practice, who are actually related) are beating up a third guy for screwing up their business, and then decide to sho...

FX Confirms 'Justified' Set To End After Sixth Season

1/14/2014 10:25pm EST
Crime drama Justified is set to end after its sixth season, FX CEO John Landgraf confirmed during conference on Tuesday during the TCA (Television Critics Association) Winter Press Tour.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, star Timothy Olyphant and producer Graham Yost made the decision to bring the Emmy-winning show to an end and informed Landgraf, who wasn't wasn't thrilled about cutting a season off the seven that were originally planned.

"It was Graham Yost and Timothy Olyphant's decision. I would have liked to have had more Justified," he said. "It's one of my favorite shows."

"We ...

'Justified' Recap: 'A Murder Of Crowes'

1/8/2014 8:15am EST
After four impressive seasons, Justified has become like a welcome houseguest; you expect to see it come back and you know that when it does, it's going to be worth the wait. Still led by the unstoppable Timothy Olyphant, season five is everything we love about this show and then a little extra something, too.

The first few minutes of the season premiere play out like a Kentucky-based episode of Law & Order. Raylan's in court being taken to task for his less-than-civil handling of bad guys, while Boyd is visiting an incarcerated Ava to assure her that he's working steadily toward her relea...

Top 5 Things We'd Like To See In Justified's 5th Season

1/7/2014 10:20am EST
1. Classic Raylan

Part of the fun of Justified is the many quirks of the main character, Raylan. Season 4 saw a more somber version of our cowboy hat wearing hero. And for good reason. His father had tried to kill him and then was murdered in prison partially because of Raylan’s actions, all before Raylan’s own child’s birth. That’s definitely enough to ruin anybody’s good mood. Hopefully, Raylan doesn’t continue down the same dark and depressing path. The best version of Raylan Givens is the wisecracking, gun-toting lawman who can’t help but relate a bit too much to the criminals he’s so ...

'Justified' Recap: 'Peace of Mind'

3/27/2013 9:40am EDT
With only two episodes of Justified left this season, things are going full tilt in Kentucky. As we finally get an update on the impending Raylan Junior (what with Natalie Zea being on The Following and all), her father is getting some mild applause from his colleagues for the whole Drew Thompson thing ("Does this mean you're finally getting a haircut?" Rachel quips). Drew is in the conference room, meeting with the AUSA (guest star Rick Gomez), because he's demanding protection for Ellen May. Raylan's response is "Stick it up your ass."

Where's Ellen May? She's with Ellstin Limehouse (gue...

'Justified' Recap: 'Decoy'

3/20/2013 9:20am EDT
Things are definitely hitting the fan in this week's Justified. While the Marshals try to get Drew Thompson someplace safe - you have to love Art inquiring about a rocket launcher - Boyd is trying to appease an unhappy Nick Augustine (guest star Mike O'Malley; can you believe this is the guy who used to host Nickelodeon's GUTS?).

Holed up in his father's house, Raylan recounts history with Drew (guest star Jim Beaver), at least until Art comes in and gives him a status update. "Art, we gotta move, and we gotta move soon," Raylan insists. That's a good idea, because Boyd is telling Augustin...

'Justified' Recap: 'Hole in the Wall' (Season Premiere)

1/9/2013 9:15am EST
Certain things about Justified never change. There's always likely to be some kind of armed standoff. There's always someone with a secret, possibly more than one. And no matter what the story, something always comes back to history or to family. All of those things are true about "Hole in the Wall" - and yet, surprisingly for this usually excellent series, the episode doesn't quite gel together.

Season four opens with a flashback to January, 1983, when a disgruntled husband finds a dead body that's literally fallen to earth in the middle of his suburban street - bringing with him what l...

Timothy Olyphant on 'Justified' Season 4: 'We're Looking for the Unexpected'

1/8/2013 9:15am EST
Raylan Givens is back for more. The Kentucky marshal with the quick draw and faster wit returns tonight as FX's Justified begins a new season, and series star and co-executive producer Timothy Olyphant, spoke recently about what's ahead for his alter-ego and how the hit drama series continues to stand out amongst a crowded television landscape.

(SPOILER ALERT - This interview contains information about season 4 of Justified and spoilers for some events in season 3.)

"We're doing our best to try to keep the story both familiar and unexpected," said Olyphant. "When we sit down to concoct ...

Ten Films I Love That You've Never Heard Of

9/9/2012 2:30pm EDT
Brittany's Blog: This is my viewpoint, from the far end of the couch...and this weekend, I'm busy re-organizing my DVD collection. All 3,000-plus of them. But while I own my fair share of blockbusters, I also have a special place in my heart for lesser-known movies. A lot of great films fly under the radar, and as I'm moving a few of them around on my shelves, I thought I ought to share them with you.

In alphabetical order, here are ten of my favorite flicks that you probably didn't know existed, and links so you can pick them up for yourselves (which you should).

Interview: From 'Hitman' To 'The Divide' Filmmaker Xavier Gens Speaks To Starpulse!

4/16/2012 12:22pm EDT
Xavier Gens photo
For only having made a handful of movies, filmmaker Xavier Gens has already made quite a name for himself. Right out of the gate his feature film the horror outing "Frontier(s)" was not only the most notable of the 2007 Horrorfest 8 Films To Die For, but was so intense it was given the NC-17 rating. His second feature "Hitman" with Timothy Olyphant was no less controversial, with Gens having the visually impressive film taken out of his control during editing by 20th Century Fox. And his latest flick is perhaps his most dark, daring and amazing to date – a trapped in a basement post-apoc...

'Justified' Recap: Bad Things Happen When 'Guy Walks Into A Bar'

3/21/2012 2:04am EDT
Justified keeps going strong this week, as Raylan and Quarles have another confrontation that makes up one of the best scenes in the show's history. If Timothy Olyphant or Neal McDonough don't win an Emmy, I will be shocked.

Nothing good ever happens past nightfall in Kentucky, at least on this show. There are two sheriff's deputies planting drugs in Shelby's truck, for one. He stops them with his shotgun, but it's clear they're playing dirty in Harlan County. Shelby then talks to Boyd, who decides he doesn't want his friend going anywhere alone from that point on. He goes to vis...
