'The Cabin In The Woods' Turns The Horror Genre On Its Head

April 14th, 2012 10:00am EDT
'The Cabin In The Woods
'The Cabin in the Woods,' written by Joss Whedon (Buffy The Vampire Slayer & Avengers) and Drew Goddard (Cloverfield) who also directed, is one of the most clever horror films I've seen in a really long time.

Without giving too much away, here's the scenario: Five friends go to a remote cabin in the woods and really horrible things start to happen to them. But trust me, it's not what you think or what you've come to expect from your classic horror film.

For me, the highlight of the film involves a group lead by Bradley Whitford and Richard Jenkins and if I told you their involvement it w...

'The Cabin In The Woods' Gets An 'A' For Effort But Falls Short

April 13th, 2012 4:00pm EDT
Cabin Woods photo
On the one hand I applaud the attempt by both co-writers Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon to reinvigorate the horror genre by mocking certain conventions and creating all new ones. But in its wry attempt to be a step ahead of typical slice and dice fare, "The Cabin In The Woods" at times comes off as too clever and as a result never feels like its letting the audience in on the joke.

The set up is pure "Evil Dead" cabin retro, with four young and naïve kids heading out to an isolated log hut to do a little partying. The initial addition is in the form of a gang of suit and tie desk jockeys w...

'The Good Guys' Really Cancelled This Time

January 7th, 2011 9:51am EST
The Good Guys
Bad news for fans (including myself) of FOX's The Good Guys: this time, it really is cancelled.

Though the show's been prematurely reported as cancelled numerous times, my information comes from a reputable source: RonReaco Lee, who played unlucky snitch Julius Grant for most of the show's run. I had a chance to chat with RonReaco on Thursday night while he walked the red carpet for his new BET series, Let's Stay Together, and when I asked about the fate of The Good Guys, he told me it's over.

"The people who liked it really liked it," he said. "But there weren't enough of you."

I wa...

'The Good Guys' 1.20 'Partners' Recap and Review

December 11th, 2010 5:40pm EST
The Good Guys
If this really does turn out to be the last episode of The Good Guys, the show went out with a bang.

Jack and Dan are having lunch at the cafe that apparently has the "best pancakes in Dallas." This puts them in prime position when a guy skips out on his check. Dan being Dan, he decides to go through the window rather than the door (breaking a $300 window to handle a $6.52 (plus tip) crime) in pursuit - a pursuit that's short-lived when a guy walks in front of Jack and collides with him, leaving him on the ground in pain. Unsurprisingly, Dan is unconcerned.

When they get back to t...

'The Good Guys' 1.19 'Cop Killer' Recap and Review

December 4th, 2010 1:04am EST
The Good Guys
No, The Good Guys has not been cancelled. Not as of November 30, anyway.

The bad news is it may very well be. We're down to the final two episodes of season one, and things aren't looking so hot. Many sites have given up on the show already and considered it as good as dead (which may be where some of that false cancellation buzz comes from). It's a shame, really, because this whole season has brought us an offbeat, funny way to spend our Friday evenings, shown us that Colin Hanks may be the best 'straight man' in TV comedy, and proven that Bradley Whitford has absolutely no shame....

Chris Klein
Actor Chris Klein has returned to work following a two-month rehab stint stemming from an alcohol-related arrest in June - to film a cameo role on TV series The Good Guys.

The American Pie star was taken into custody and charged with two misdemeanors after failing a sobriety test when his car was pulled over by cops on a Los Angeles freeway. Klein, who spent four days behind bars, pleaded no contest to the DUI counts and was released on bail after agreeing to enroll in an alcohol education program.

He checked himself into Utah's Cirque Lodge rehab facility for two months of treatment in...

Bradley Whitford: Expect Lots Of Fun, Action & Moustache In FOX's 'The Good Guys'

May 18th, 2010 10:30am EDT
Bradley Whitford The Good Guys
Bradley Whitford is back on television like you’ve never seen him before. Sure, you’re probably used to seeing him as an articulate intellectual on Aaron Sorkin shows like The West Wing or Studio 60. If you’re a movie fan, maybe you like him as a generic villain. The Good Guys brings Whitford to the buddy cop drama as an alcoholic renegade paired up with a young, by the books hotshot.

Whitford rocks a ‘70s moustache since his character hasn’t really left behind the glory days of his early career. Even in person, he’s pulling it off. Perhaps it helps that he has an ironic sense of humor abo...

What To Watch: Summer 2010 TV

May 14th, 2010 10:44am EDT
Summer TV 2010
There used to be a time when summer television was all reruns and special events, like baseball games and the occasional Olympics. Then it became a reality television zone, giving life to such mind-numbingness as CBS’ Big Brother, a show about thirteen insipid individuals put in a house and made to play inane games and “back door” each other for a chance at a half a million dollars. More and more, though, networks are scheduling new shows for the summer block that are quirkier, non-formulaic, and even character driven. What was once a wasteland is fast becoming a haven for smaller, niche sh...

'American Idol' Recap: The Idols Improve With Lennon And McCartney

April 7th, 2010 9:42am EDT
The Idols Improve With Lennon and McCartney
There’s something I’ve noticed about this season of ‘American Idol’: A lot of cringes.

Those cringes come whenever we see who’s coming up next. Like in this scenario: Ryan says, “Up next it’s Casey James”. Instantly, there’s a shudder as we think of the boring mess he’s about to give us.

This feeling of unease goes pretty much down the line. Be it Tim, Katie, Aaron or Andrew, there are so many contestants whose impending performance is something you’d rather not see.

But tonight, many of those shudders were unfounded as a lot of the former bottom dwellers raised their game, turning in...

'X-Files' 10 Best Episodes

July 25th, 2008 11:34am EDT
The X-Files: I Want to Believe
After six long years, we may finally discover the ultimate truth. Today, the second "X-Files" movie hits theaters a decade after the first movie and six years after the series went off the air. All that time apart from Mulder and Scully has inevitably left fans feeling disconnected from the characters and casual viewers forgetting the show altogether.

This will probably result in the film being a massive financial failure (the first movie barely cracked $80 million at a time when 20 million people tuned in every week), but for the true X-Philes out there "The X-Files: I Want to Believ...
