This Week's Movie Buzz: See It, Rent It, Or Skip It?

4/20/2009 9:44am EDT
The Soloist
This week is fairly busy at the box office, with seven movies arriving. Four of them are general release, while the other three are limited release. I will be going over "Obsessed," "Earth," "Fighting," "The Soloist," "Tyson," "Mutant Chronicles," and "The Informers."


Successful asset manager Derek Charles (Idris Elba) has everything a man could want. He just received a promotion at work and he has a happy marriage, but when an obsessed temp in his office (Ali Larter) starts stalking him, his picture-perfect life is placed in serious danger.

"Obsessed" is the first fe...

'Heroes' Flashes Back

4/14/2009 1:11pm EDT
After last week's exciting episode we join our Heroes digging in the dirt. They're unearthing the remains of people killed in Coyote Sands decades ago. Peter questions what they're doing in the middle of the desert digging up graves. Nathan says when Mom has a dream they should listen. Claire tells Peter to give Nathan a chance, "he's carrying enough guilt for all of us." Peter says, "He's charmed you too. Don't worry it happens to all of us." Then he asks Angela for answers about the aunt he never knew about.

The show flashes back in black and white to 1961. Angela, her sister Alice a...

10 Ways 'Heroes' Could Be Improved

4/6/2009 2:30pm EDT
After a much-praised first season, NBC's Heroes took a tumble, then a dive, and though producers desperately tried to resuscitate the show, there didn't seem to be any signs of life. "Volume Four: Fugitives" showed some promise, but the stranglehold on "Heroes" is strong, prompting many fans to believe that it's too late to save it. Instead of sitting around and moping, here are 10 suggestions to get the drama off life support and breathing on its own:

1. Kill Nathan Petrelli. The flying Judas has had too many reprieves already, what with miraculously surviving two bullets to the che...

'Heroes' Makes A Comeback

3/31/2009 9:18am EDT
On the last episode of Heroes Claire and Nathan are hiding out in Mexico. Claire makes it clear that she's only staying one night. She wants to know what the plan is for getting their lives back to normal.

Nathan says he will make some calls and put some things in action in order to make everything right again. Claire says she's going to walk around for a while. Nathan acts like a worried Father. She says she'll be fine and leaves him alone with his thoughts in a dirty hotel room. Peter saved Angela and took her to a church. He's looking for answers, so is Angela.

Danko arrives o...

'Heroes' Gets Good Again

3/24/2009 4:43pm EDT
This week starts off with a shock. In a series of interesting close-ups, jump cuts and repeat edits Danko puts on shaving cream, places a straight razor into a guard and begins shaving his face. His alarm goes off telling him his front door is open. He wipes off the shaving cream, you'd think he's just leave it on, gets his gun out, which he always wears in it's holster, and makes his way to the front door. He closes the door and back tracks into his living room where he finds the Puppeteer gift-wrapped with a red bow and hanging from his ceiling in a makeshift theater stage complete with c...

The 'Heroes' Take Control

3/10/2009 12:59pm EDT
Last week on Heroes we left Claire in the kitchen with the Puppeteer, Doyle. This week he begs for her help. Rebel sent a fake call to the agents outside so Claire and Sandra can't call for help. Doyle wants to know why they aren't kicking down the door and nabbing "comes back to life Barbie." She tells him she has a free pass. He uses his powers to freeze them and tells them that the agency burned down his theater with him still in it and that she doesn't know what it's like to be hunted. He let's Claire and Sandra go free and leaves saying he's not the kind of person anymore who would ki...

'Heroes' Gets a Break

3/4/2009 9:27am EST
Claire has been hiding Alex in her closet. This week she brings him a sandwich on white bread after he specifically asked for wheat, apparently beggars can be choosers. Claire tells Alex he has to go to Albuquerque and start a new life where no one knows him. Alex doesn't want to trust the word of a high school kid. Claire reminds him, "If it wasn't for this high school girl you might already be dead, so if you want to survive you're gonna have to do exactly what I say." Alex likes an aggressive girl but before he can answer her Sandra confronts Claire about the disappearance of $300 in hou...

'Heroes' Plods Along

2/24/2009 2:48pm EST
This week's episode of Heroes takes us back before last week's episode in order to catch us up on things we already know. Parkman, Suresh and Peter talk at a motel before going over to drug HRG. Suresh thinks it's dangerous to be out in the open. Parkman reminds the men that they did nothing wrong and they were captured anyway. Then we're back in the bar with HRG as he is drugged and passes out. Parkman, Suresh and Peter pick him up off the floor and take him away.

While HRG is drugged Parkman goes into his mind and fishes around for answers. We're transported to five weeks earlier to ...

'Heroes' Recap: Building 26

2/17/2009 4:16pm EST
Claire is stuck back at home with her "happy" family. She and HRG are lying to Claire's Mom about going on an Ivy League college tour instead of telling her they were a part of covert government plot to take down people with special abilities. Claire leaves the breakfast table and runs off to her room to have a tantrum. HRG follows and chastises her. Claire says, "And now's the part where you tell me everything you do you do to protect me." Instead HRG tells her she's going to go to community college or there's going to be hell to pay. So basically Claire is in a prison of her own making. E...

'Heroes' Crashes and Burns

2/3/2009 2:02pm EST
Paul Greengrass must have designed the sloppy first episode of the new "Heroes" Chapter because they borrowed the cinematography from "The Bourne Ultimatum" and they really should give it back. NBC is apparently hurting for money and it looks as if they cut the budget for this floundering show. In response the writers decided to cut as much dialog and character development as possible and insert clichéd action sequences in which the heroes are captured by HRG backed by Nathan Petrelli. To further stretch the dwindling funds they also shot everything through a pinhole camera and succeeded in...

'Heroes' Makes Amends

12/16/2008 3:38pm EST
Sylar gives the creepy opening in this episode of Heroes. Last week Peter tried to shoot his Father but only managed to give himself that notorious scar instead. Sylar finished the job and this week Nathan is picking up where dear Dad left off. Peter threatens to shoot his brother and again can't do it. So he punches him out instead and leaves with the gun.

HRG, Claire, Angela and Meredith are trying to leave Prymatech when Sylar puts the facility on lockdown with his mind. He decides he needs to torture all of them in order to show them that they are monsters, just like him.


'Heroes' Needs A Catalyst

12/9/2008 1:51pm EST
In this episode of Heroes, titled 'Our Father': Hiro and Claire go back sixteen years in order to change history and try to save the world, again. They listen in as Noah Bennett receives Claire as a baby. Then they see Hiro's Mom heal a sick dove and they both realize they can change history. Claire can convince HRG not to put the catalyst in her and Hiro decides he can receive the catalyst and protect it. They say this at the same time, to each other, except Hiro is speaking Japanese and Claire is speaking English.

Angela Petrelli convinces Peter to go with The Haitian and kill Arthur...

'Heroes' Comes Out of the Dark

12/2/2008 12:36pm EST
Peter and The Haitian track down The Haitian's brother, the impenetrable Godlike leader of a Haitian army named Baron Sandi. The Haitian demands to know why Peter tracked him down. Peter says, "I needed to know I could be a hero without my powers." So that's what all this tromping through the jungle has been about.

Claire's Mom takes Claire to the emergency room. She's infected badly. The infection looks really old. The ER nurse demands to know how long it's been since she was shot. Claire's Mom says it just happened. The nurse replies in disbelief, "Either she hasn't been sick in her ...

'Heroes' Gets Eclipsed

11/25/2008 12:25pm EST
Everyone's obsessed with the coming eclipse on Heroes. Sylar and Elle practice electricity throwing. Elle says he's doing great. He says it's not good enough he, "needs to prove himself to someone." Elle probes, he says he's afraid she wouldn't understand so she drops it. Then Arthur walks in on them and tells Sylar he has an assignment for him, to go get the cheerleader. Sylar reveals that Arthur's his Dad, which Elle reacts to without letting him know she's reacting. Then Elle volunteer's to help because she was raised to be, "a company girl." Of course Arthur thinks the two of them are, ...

Latest 'Heroes' Ep Has Bad Writing, Predictable Plot Points

11/18/2008 12:52pm EST
So this pretentious episode of Heroes begins with a narration about the meaning of an eclipse being unknowable and divine yet somehow we all know that in the next episode it will all be magically revealed, oh yeah, because they've been advertising this whole thing since last week.

Arthur Petrelli stands in front of Hiro, his hands over Hiro's ears, squeezing Hiro's head, Hiro screams and screams and screams some more. Arthur says, "You had one job to do…never send a boy to do a man's job." What a load of bad writing. This obscure reference only makes sense when the camera drops back t...

'Heroes' Becomes 'Villains' For A Night

11/11/2008 9:05am EST
Apparently we all took the same sleeping pill, and while we were knocked out we had the same nightmare: that "Heroes" was going nowhere very fast, introducing new characters who we didn't care about because we knew nothing about them and creating plot scenarios which felt forced and clichéd.

Last night we all woke up. We had the chance to start the season over and watch the premiere of a new series called "Villains." It was much better than its "Heroes" counterpart. It had characters we knew and cared about, and it revealed back stories in an interesting and thought provoking way. It ...

Confusion Reigns On 'Heroes'

10/28/2008 9:19am EDT
This week's episode of Heroes began with Hiro and Ando still in Africa fighting over whether or not Hiro should go back in time in order to save the world. Hiro refuses to use his powers to go back in time because of the disastrous consequences of his last trip. Hiro says something worse could happen if he goes back in time again. Ando asks, "What could be worse than the end of the world?!" This episode.

After previously bad, boring and clichéd episodes during this rocky season we were given false hope last week that things were returning to previous season's standards of excellence. I...

'Heroes' Seems Forced, Cliched & Tired

9/30/2008 10:00am EDT
NBC might want to consider renaming their show, "The Sylar Show," instead of "Heroes." It was stated that this season would be all about the villains and audiences can't seem to get enough of Sylar, but at what point is it overkill (pun intended)?

Turns out that Angela Petrelli really is Sylar's mother, and she's nursing him back to health in order to help collect all the villains he allowed to escape. Like all the clichéd moms of villains before her, she feels her son in misunderstood and just needs guidance in order to become the best little guy he possibly can be. She regrets givin...

Our Favorite TV Ensembles

6/12/2008 9:00am EDT
An ensemble cast is a group of actors in which each character/actor is assigned an equal level of importance to the story. Sometimes even if there is an established "main character," a show can be considered an ensemble because individuals are treated with the same care and development as everyone else on the show.

This sort of cast style gives the audience a chance to connect with several different characters rather than just one; if a viewer does not like one of the characters or cannot relate to them, there will be several more to choose from. It creates very broad storylines and v...

Is 'Heroes' In Peril? Starpulse Weighs In

11/14/2007 10:04am EST
If one person says it, it's a rumor. If two people say it, it's gospel. But what if a chunk of the viewing audience is not only saying it, but also tuning out? That's the problem facing Heroes this season as it slips in the ratings and in the eyes of television critics. Complaints of slow pacing, too many new characters and not enough action have plagued the series this season, which has been suffering from sluggish momentum and redundant storytelling.

When the season began, viewers were faced with unanswerable questions: Why is Nathan's face burned up in the mirror? What happened to M...

A new face is joing the cast of Heroes, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Dania Ramirez will join the series in the fall. She will play a character named Maya, whose power is being kept secret for now.
