Interview: Actress Moira Kelly On 'The Lion King 3D', David Lynch and The Chemistry Of 'The Cutting Edge'

September 13th, 2011 1:38pm EDT
Moira Kelly
For those who appreciate talent and presence with their beauty, Moira Kelly is a major actress of note. With her diverse body of work, from portraying the girl-next-door in David Lynch’s "Twin Peaks" film follow-up "Fire Walk With Me" to playing dual roles opposite Robert Downey Jr. in "Chaplin," Kelly has amassed quite an impressive amount of credits in a very short time. Moving away from the movie industry to follow a different passion (namely that of being a full-time stay-at-home mom!) for the last few years, Kelly recently surfaced to talk about the latest resurgence of her former ad...

'Hawaii Five-O' 1.19 'Na Me'e Laua Na Paio' Review

March 22nd, 2011 9:24am EDT
Hawaii Five-O
Did you miss Hawaii Five-O? Me too. It's been exactly a month since the last new episode. Because of that, and because it features the first appearance of potential new series regular Larisa Oleynik, I had high expectations for this one.

The case of the week involves a would-be superhero murdered while attending a sci-fi convention. (Does anyone else find amusement in former Heroes star Masi Oka making an appearance as Max Bergman, who is apparently also a comic-book geek?) As a longtime geek and convention-goer myself, I have to shake my head a little about another portrayal of that...

Best And Worst Winter Olympic Movies

Best And Worst Winter Olympic Movies
The Winter Olympics start this week, and though some people see this as an opportunity to celebrate global harmony through sport, others see it as a reason to compile a list of movies. Some of these are masterpieces, and some are abominations, but they all have one thing in common: They are all better than the biathlon. So here they are, from best to worst:

Miracle (2004)

Director: Gavin O'Connor

Starring: Kurt Russell, Patrick O'Brien Demsey

When a movie is based on true events, it often means that those events have been long-forgotten or ignored. Not so with Miracle, which is a...

Nine Actors Who Played Real-life Baseball Players

October 19th, 2009 11:00am EDT
Gary Cooper
With the baseball playoffs in full swing, it's time to take a look at actors who have stepped up to the plate and taken on the challenge of portraying a real-life hardball legend. While there have been many great movies and portrayals about diamond life (Kevin Costner in "Bull Durham" springs to mind), a select few actors have hit the field in fact-based baseball films.

Gary Cooper as Lou Gehrig

In the revered biopic "The Pride of the Yankees," Cooper steps into the shoes of the Yankees icon and deftly handles all the off-the-field developments (diagnosis of ALS, "Luckiest Man Alive"...

Must-See Hockey Movies

Slap Shot
Hockey, the sport of kings, or whatever it is they have in Canada, Pharaoh perhaps? The sport that makes professional wrestling look like a rose filled romp through Holland has been immortalized several times on the big screen. For every man who has sat through Disney's Ice Princess hoping for a bit of checking on the ice, Starpulse presents our list of must-see hockey movies of all time. Some are good, some are bad, all deserve a place next to your goalie mask.

The Cutting Edge (1992)

Oh D. B. Sweeney, if only you didn't suffer that eye-injury. The Cutting Edge could have been about...

'Jericho' Series Finale: Second Time The Charm?

March 26th, 2008 9:04am EDT
Jericho
With "Jericho's" second (and likely final) cancellation announced late last week, this week's season finale has suddenly become a series finale. Thankfully for "Jericho" diehards (and CBS execs certainly know that they are out there), The Powers That Be foresaw this turn of events and filmed two endings for the episode - a cliffhanger and a conclusion. Since the show was cancelled, we received the latter. The only question is - does it satisfy?

The Final Beginning

On to the episode. Jake (Skeet Ulrich) and Hawkins (Lennie James) prepare to journey to Cheyenne in order to reacq...

'Jericho' Episode Recap: Everybody Hates Goetz

March 12th, 2008 9:22am EDT
DB Sweeney plays Goetz in Jericho
In season two, "Jericho" has fulfilled the promise of an uneven first year and become possibly the most gripping and action-packed hour of prime time television. Of course barely anyone knows that because only about 6 million people are watching. Guess the allure of "Primetime: What Would You Do?" is a little too much.

Sad music = sad times

This week's episode begins with the aftermath of an epic shootout at the Richmond farm that left Bonnie (Shoshannah Stern) dead and Mimi (Alicia Coppola) badly wounded. The mood around town is quite somber, and not even an appearance by t...

'Jericho' Recap: Shootouts & Mystery Men

March 5th, 2008 10:39am EST
Jericho
The explosive second season of ''Jericho'' continues with yet another gripping installment. Big revelations were made about the conspiracy, certain characters’ eyes were opened, and shootout at the Richmond farm claimed the life of one Jericho citizen. Honestly, what more can you ask for? Well, besides more of bumbling deputy Jimmy (Bob Stephenson) that is.

Revolution!

Could a revolution be brewing in Jericho? Many locals are unhappy with the town administrators put in place by Jennings & Rall, and they are complaining about getting used and abused. Talk quickly turns to the Ameri...

'Jericho' Episode Recap: Welcoming Back Familiar Faces

February 27th, 2008 8:48am EST
Jericho
The gripping second season of "Jericho" continues as citizens of the beleaguered town are forced to deal with the return of Ravenwood, the mercenary group that nearly invaded Jericho months earlier. This time, Ravenwood is not simply a bloodthirsty rogue unit, shooting and looting across the Midwest. Now they are working for The Allied States of America and the country's doughy faced puppet master, Valente (Daniel Benzali).

Needless to say, Jake (Skeet Ulrich), Eric (Kenneth Mitchell) and company are not very pleased to see the return of Ravenwood or its sadistic leader, Goetz (D.B. ...

'Jericho' Recap: Decline and Fall of the First Republic

February 20th, 2008 9:44am EST
Jericho
Week two of the "Jericho" revival (one that looks to be short-lived if last week's ratings are any indication) starts off with another riveting recap of the story so far. That's all well and good, but unfortunately it seems that the only people watching the series are the diehard fans from last year, so it doesn't serve much of a purpose. Still cool, though.

Meet the new government

Things start out nice and serene, as Stanley (Brad Beyer) and Mimi (Alicia Coppola) enjoy a quaint breakfast of chocolate chip pancakes (yum-yum) and comment about how calm life has become. Uh-oh. T...
