'Justified' Recap: 'Whistle Past The Graveyard'

'Justified' Recap: 'Whistle Past The Graveyard'
Can you believe we're in the home stretch of Season 5 of Justified? Neither can we, but this is indeed the eighth of thirteen episodes in the penultimate season. Maybe it's also a placeholder for the final four, too, because it's lacking something outside of a strong performance by Alicia Witt.

After a whole bunch of people got shot up last week, Boyd and the Crowes are not popular with their international business partners; they get to live, but the partnership is on very unsteady ground. Our ragtag band of criminals finds themselves having to get dead bodies back across the border, along...

'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...

Four Reasons to Give 'The Mob Doctor' A Second Chance

October 8th, 2012 1:50pm EDT
The Mob Doctor
One of the biggest things I’ve learned in life is never to give much weight to first impressions. If I did, I wouldn’t have ever hung out with a girl who came to be my best friend in high school, and a pretty good one today as I thought she was a tree-hugging weirdo and she thought I was stuck up. Both judgments couldn’t be further from the truth. This is the same reason why I give new television shows three chances to hook me. I’m so grateful that I have, otherwise I would have given up on some pretty spectacular shows, the most recent being Fox’s "The Mob Doctor" before the freshman d...

John Stamos, Michael Rapaport & Tika Sumpter Talk 'My Man Is A Loser'

July 13th, 2012 11:32am EDT
My Man Is A Loser
Starpulse recently got a chance to visit the set of upcoming film "My Man Is A Loser" on location in New York City, and stars John Stamos, Michael Rappaport, and Tika Sumpter took time out to gush about the project (and each other).

"My Man Is A Loser" centers on married men Marty and Paul (Rapaport and Bryan Callen) who ask their single playboy friend (Stamos) to help them get their mojo back in an attempt to save their lackluster marriages. Things start to backfire almost immediately, leaving their wives wondering if the new versions of their husbands are worse than the old ones.

Starpulse Snapshots: Ali Landry On The Set Of 'Little Boy'

October 6th, 2011 2:00pm EDT
Ali Landry
Ali Landry is definitely supermom! Check out Ali's photo diary as she shoots scenes from her latest film “Little Boy” in Mexico while 9 months pregnant and yes she's due this month! The hard working beauty, who makes balancing it all look easy (with 4-year-old daughter Estela on set), plays an expecting mother in the movie whose husband is away at war. The film, slated for a 2012 release, also stars Emily Watson, Kevin James, Michael Rapaport, Tom Wilkenson and is directed by Landry’s husband, Alejandro Monteverde.

Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies - 'Horrible Bosses,' 'Zookeeper' & More

July 4th, 2011 10:30am EDT
Horrible Bosses
For those of you who’ve been following me for a while, you might recall that I gave “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” a positive review. If you’re one of the people who read my opinion back then, you might be surprised to learn I really didn’t care for its sequel “Transformers: Dark of the Moon.” At this point, Michael Bay is just repeating a tired formula that fails to entertain despite the introduction of 3D. Check out my further thoughts here.

This weekend you’ll have the opportunity to see the outrageous comedy “Horrible Bosses,” the Kevin James family film “Zookeeper,” the ...

Tribeca: Beats, Rhymes & Life Of A Tribe Called Quest

April 30th, 2011 7:40am EDT
tcq
Once upon a time, someone in the hip-hop community decreed that Bill Clinton had earned the “Black People Card”. I’m not certain, but it sounds like something Chris Rock would’ve said, so for now I’ll credit him with this. The argument was that Clinton was so cool, so down with black people, that had it not been for the colour of his skin, he’d be considered black on street cred alone. Think of the Black People Card as the Black Amex of the hip-hop community: you can’t apply for the card. If you ask, chances are you can’t afford it. No, you have to be sent an invitation. The hip-hop communi...

Q-Tip Doesn't Support Michael Rapaport's Documentary

December 3rd, 2010 5:09pm EST
Q-Tip
A Tribe Called Quest co-founder Q-Tip has hit out at actor-turned-filmmaker Michael Rapaport's documentary about the legendary hip-hop group, insisting he is "not in support" of the project.

The My Name Is Earl star started work on the film in 2008 to tell the story of A Tribe Called Quest's rise to fame, their 2008 reunion and their subsequent fall out, which led to another break-up.

The independent documentary, Beats Rhymes and Life, was unveiled as one of the official pictures for the 2011 Sundance Film Festival - but Q-Tip has moved to distance himself from the film, insisting the p...

Trailer Talk: 'Halloween II,' 'Taking Woodstock' & More

HALLOWEEN II
I have not had the chance to see "Inglourious Basterds" yet, but I'm hoping to catch it in the next couple of days. From the people I have spoken with that have seen it already, it's supposed to be really entertaining.

Other films in my current backlog include "District 9" which I've only heard positive feedback about, and the Paul Giamatti comedy "Cold Souls."

Two of the movies premiering this week are horror movies, and the other two are comedies. One of the films is another sequel annoyingly titled to resemble the first movie's title much like "Fast & Furious." Arriving at the b...

'Prison Break' Comes To An End This Spring

January 13th, 2009 2:46pm EST
Prison Break
The greatest escape on television comes to an end after four suspenseful seasons when Prison Break returns for the series' final episodes beginning Friday, April 17 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

"Prison Break" premiered in August 2005. The show was an immediate hit and followed Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) as he engineered a daring escape from Fox River Penitentiary to free his wrongly convicted brother Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) from Death Row. With the prison break a success, the brothers, along with six additional escapees, were part of a nationwide manhunt headed by FB...

Mama Scofield Enters The Picture On 'Prison Break'

December 23rd, 2008 10:58am EST
Prison Break
It's fall finale time on "Prison Break," folks. Thus far, the season has been chock full of revelations, lies, betrayals, plot twists (both conceivable and far out) and of course, deaths. Plenty of deaths. Did the body count continue to climb in this final episode of 2008? Have we been provided with some answers, or just more questions? Most importantly, has T-Bag's facial hair changed for the third episode in a row?

Lincoln in Charge (of our days, and our nights)

Having been given his mission to reclaim Scylla by The General (Leon Russom), Lincoln finds himself in charge of ...

Spiritual Visions And Company Men On 'Prison Break'

Prison Break
As we head towards the fall finale, things on "Prison Break" continue to heat up. Allegiances may have shifted (again), but Scylla remains the focus of nearly everyone's attention. When last we left our old friends, Michael (Wentworth Miller) had been taken in by The Company, and The General (Leon Russom) had struck a "bargain" (word of the day, right Pee-Wee?) with Lincoln (Dominic Purcell). The deal? If Lincoln and his friends are able to successfully return Scylla to The General, Big G will remove that nasty tumor from Michael's brain. Seems reasonable, right? Let's see if everyone...

The Chaos Continues On 'Prison Break'

December 9th, 2008 10:54am EST
Prison Break
Say what you will about "Prison Break," but if there is one thing that it has not been these past few weeks, it's predictable. While the series has always been prone to wild plot twists, quadruple-crosses and plenty of violence, things have really elevated to another level ever since the gang got the best of The General (Leon Russom) a few episodes ago.

Word of the Day: Gas

Things pick up right where they left off last week, with Self (Michael Rapaport) needing a final chip for Scylla, a chip that Michael (Wentworth Miller) possesses. Last week Michael invited Self to "come and...

Just Like The Good Old Days On 'Prison Break'

December 2nd, 2008 11:01am EST
Prison Break
Last night's episode of "Prison Break" was probably the most reminiscent of season 2's unpredictability and general awesomeness that we have seen all year. Folks, that says a lot. Self's betrayal has shaken things up in a major way, altering the relationships of most of the characters and institutions that we have come to know and love (or hate). Throw in a few double-crosses and a few more deaths, and we've got one heck of an episode.

Michael Rapaport, how could you?

The gang still can't believe that they were set up by agent Don Self (Michael Rapaport). While the rest of the...

It's Plot Twists A Go-Go On 'Prison Break'

November 25th, 2008 11:40am EST
Prison Break
When we left off last week, Michael (Wentworth Miller) had finally gotten his hands on Scylla but ended up tripping a silent alarm in the process. As he sat the staring at the machine in awe, The General (Leon Russom) was making his way down with several armed men in tow. So how did Michael work his way out of that one? There's that and so much more today, on "Prison Break: The Recap!" Roll Credits.

The General Gets Outgeneraled

Last week, Michael seemed awfully foolish as he just sat there, mesmerized by Scylla, completely unaware of the fact that he had tripped a silent ala...

One Step Closer To Scylla On 'Prison Break'

November 11th, 2008 11:26am EST
Prison Break
With Termie out of the picture and The General thinking that everyone is dead, the gang on Prison Break has a little window in which to find Scylla before it is moved. Will they take advantage of this opportunity? Or will Bellick's death be in vain?

Mourning

Everyone is in a very somber mood after Bellick's sacrifice. It is kind of hard to believe that the level of grief the gang is feeling over Bellick's death is so high, as until quite recently he was despised by pretty much all of the major characters. Then again, these guys (and gal) have been through quite a lot together...

A Long Expected Betrayal On 'Prison Break'

October 21st, 2008 10:54am EDT
Prison Break
This week on "Prison Break," the gang finally was subject to a long-expected (at least by viewers) betrayal by computer wunderkind/all around dirtbag Roland. While this plot development was hardly a twist, there were enough interesting tidbits, plot developments and action to keep things rolling and provide us loyal viewers with another exciting installment.

Those were the days…

We start off this week with an exciting flashback from Lincoln's past, back in his days of depravity. Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) and his companion have a job to do, and it involves brute force (hence why ...

This Week on 'Prison Break:' Blood Feuds, Indecent Proposals... and Vegas!

October 7th, 2008 12:16pm EDT
Prison Break
The best season of "Prison Break" thus far was season 2. Sure, purists had a problem with it ("they're no longer in prison!); but as far as unpredictability, craziness, and sheer fun are concerned, it was unmatched. Well, that might all be about to change. Season 4 might have started off a little unevenly, but if the past few episodes are any indication, the journey to the season (and perhaps series) finale is going to be quite a trip.

Not So Strange Bedfellows

We left off last week with T-Bag (Robert Knepper), having just fled from a suspicious associate at Gate, frantically r...

'Prison Break' Recap: Changing

September 30th, 2008 10:54am EDT
Prison Break
The great thing about "Prison Break" is that even when it does enter the occasional rut of repetition and predictability (and honestly, there aren't many shows that don't), things usually don't take too long to get back on track. That is why it was only a matter of time before the show broke away from the "card an episode" format and we received an exciting new installment that advanced several storylines.

A Day at the Track

Ok, so just because the card an episode formula from the past few episodes was not utilized this week does not mean that there were no cards involved. They ...

'Prison Break' Recap: Breaking Into Federal Buildings In 30 Minutes Or Less

September 23rd, 2008 11:50am EDT
Prison Break
Thanks to fare such as "24" and "Prison Break," Monday night has become synonymous with over-the-top, illogical, nonsensical, but nevertheless eminently enjoyable escapist programming. Naturally, with an all new episode of "Prison Break" airing last night, that trend continued. And it was good. "Prison Break" good (which really is a classification all of its own), but there is one caveat. If there is one thing that "Prison Break" usually isn't, it's formulaic. However, in recent weeks, the hunt for the data cards has become just a little repetitive. Thankfully, there is enough jolly o...

The Hunt For The Cards Continues On 'Prison Break'

So what happened this week on "Prison Break?" Did the gang find another card? Did someone get killed? Were there any major plot holes? Was it entertaining? No need for suspense...the answer to all those questions is yes. You shouldn't be surprised. This is "Prison Break," after all.

The Obligatory MiSa Pandering

Things kick off this week with a tender little moment between Michael (Wentworth Miller) and Sara (Sarah Wayne Callies). They look longingly at boats and talk about how some day, they will sail away together. That's all well and good, except for one little problem...

'Prison Break' Recap: Someone Dies, Lincoln Sweats, Michael Saves the Day

September 9th, 2008 10:29am EDT
Prison Break
Last week's lengthy, exciting, confusing and show-changing season premiere effectively (or ineffectively, depending on how you look at it) put the Sona storyline to rest and brought the action back to the U.S. New characters were introduced; both heroes and villains. There were awkward, inexplicable reunions, shocking losses, hasty exists, and of course the obligatory Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) brawl. So, how was the follow-up, now that the story arc of the season has been established? Pretty solid, even if it did lack an appearance from everybody's favorite Revlon Girl (Jodi Ly...

'Prison Break' Premiere is Sloppy, Yet Satisfying

September 2nd, 2008 10:36am EDT
Prison Break
Ahh, the long awaited return of everyone's favorite over-the-top, unrealistic, yet incredibly entertaining television series. No, we're not talking about "24" folks (although Jack will be back soon enough), but rather its erstwhile Monday night partner in crime, the incomparable "Prison Break."

Last season ended abruptly thanks to that pesky strike, but those clever writers still managed to lay the groundwork for another spectacularly unrealistic year. What followed was a wildly uneven, yet ultimately entertaining premiere, which began as a muddled mess and by its conclusion had co...

Snort-Worthy 'Friends' Quotes By The Show's Most Notable Guest Stars

July 16th, 2008 8:42am EDT
Alec Baldwin
During the ten years Friends spent breaking ratings records and seeping so far into pop culture that hairstylists all across America learned to perfect a style known only by a character's name, the NBC phenomenon had its fair share of notable guest stars.

And with such an abundance of comedic talent flocking their way, it should be no surprise that even now, four years after they stopped producing new episodes, Friends is still one of the most-quoted programs in history.

When talking to diehard fans - you know, the kinds of people who own the trivia game and can make it all the ...

Fox 2008-09 Schedule Is Solid, Surprisingly Straightforward

May 16th, 2008 12:03pm EDT
Eliza Dushku stars in Dollhouse
Usually this is the time of year when people are left scratching their heads, futilely trying to comprehend the four or five schedules that Fox has just unveiled for the upcoming season. This year, however, the folks at Fox have left the confusion of a year-round schedule to NBC, instead choosing to go with a much more conventional (and less headache inducing) Fall/Spring plan.

Fox has been doing fairly well recently, and it is safe to say that "American Idol" is no longer the only show keeping the network afloat (although it doesn't hurt, declining ratings and all). Therefore, it is...
