Movies That Did Not Live Up To Their Potential

March 3rd, 2009 10:39am EST
Star Wars Episode III
Nothing can be more frustrating than something not living up to its potential. Movies are especially guilty of this. There's something about watching a movie that was on to something but didn't quite make it that can stick with you. Watching them unfold feels akin to a runner screaming towards the finish line only to fall and break their ankle thirty feet short. Films like these fall apart for many reasons be it last minute changes by a studio, unnecessary plot twists, or just good old-fashioned incompetence. For whatever reason, these movies are bad-they just didn't have to be. Here's a fe...

Carrie Preston Discusses Her 'True Blood' Role And More

August 21st, 2008 9:26am EDT
Carrie Preston
Carrie Preston is not only an actor, she has her own production company. So although she is featured in the new HBO series "True Blood" and has a cameo in Woody Allen's "Vicky Cristina Barcelona," she is also currently making the indie movie tour with her latest release, "Ready? OK!" We caught up with the classically trained actor in transit and found her to be bright, charming, and a woman of many talents.

Hey Carrie, what's going on?

I'm going to a film festival in North Carolina with a movie that I produced and was in with my husband Michael Emerson ("Lost.")

Leave Them Hanging: Favorite TV Cliffhangers

April 2nd, 2008 2:00pm EDT
Lost
Television is a medium that thrives on manipulating audiences into tuning in, and no narrative device is more effective at accomplishing that task than the cliffhanger. With the end of the 2007-08 season rapidly approaching and new cliffhangers waiting in the wings, we have decided to celebrate our favorites from years past.

5) The Simpsons: "Who Shot Mr. Burns?"

The Cliffhanger: It didn't provoke quite the fervor of the "Dallas" storyline that it parodied, but this two-part episode did warrant a special "America's Most Wanted" and was discussed often during the summer of 19...

Girl Power! TV's Top Buttkicking Gals

March 28th, 2008 3:00pm EDT

You know them, you love them...and you certainly wouldn't want to piss them off. So who are they? They are the uber tough heroines who prove time and again that one doesn't need a y chromosome to kill bad guys, protect loved ones and ultimately save the day. Each one of them fights for a different reason, a different cause. Each has her own style, strengths, and battles. They do all share a common trait, however - they can all take on pretty much any man, woman, robot or monster that comes their way. Here is Starpulse's tribute to "Television's Top Buttkicking Gals."

In The End: Best Series Finales

February 20th, 2008 1:15pm EST
Star Trek The Next Generation
The series finale. There is nothing quite like it in television. Many shows aren't given the luxury of a proper final episode, instead they are canceled prematurely and often without advanced notice. Often times those series exit after airing just a normal episode, or even worse - a cliffhanger. Then there is another group, and it consists of popular and long running series' that either go out on their own terms or are given warning of their impending doom.

We are not going to concern ourselves with the first group; after all it is hard to criticize the creative decisions of writ...
