Top 5 Entertainers Of 2014

From ice bucket challenges to intense nation-wide protests, 2014 was a bizarre year in pop culture. While television soared with freshman series like “The Flash,” “black-sh” and “Outlander” the silver screen floundered a bit with the poorly-reviewed “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” the panned and grossly miscast “Exodus: Gods and Kings” but had some success with the universal hit, “Guardians Of The Galaxy” and surprise hits such as “Birdman.” Toss in the Sony hacking scandal in late December, a smattering of pant-less pot tarts, divorcing divas and anti-boybands, and you can say the year was m...

'Touch' Recap: 'Safety In Numbers' Saves A Few Lives

3/30/2012 1:14am EDT
So far, Touch is coming together pretty nicely, with its intriguing pilot and solid second episode. This third one begins with Martin getting a call from the board and care facility, and he shows up much to the annoyance of Clea, who warns him to be careful. Both of them are surprised to find that Jake has escaped from his room again, and he's writing a new number: 3287.

As Clea's leading him back to his room, Jake slips a clipping of a dragon with the number on it into his father's jacket. Martin takes the number to our wise old guy, Teller (Danny Glover), who warns him to keep h...

'Touch' Recap: '1+1=3' Is Wrong Math, But Great TV

3/23/2012 1:04am EDT
It's been awhile since we saw the Touch pilot, but the show is finally here to stay and for my money, it's the best new show of this TV season.

"I'm not taking him back there," Martin tells Clea when she shows up at his apartment, wanting to take Jake back to the boarding facility. It's the very next day after the events of the pilot, and Martin is insistent that his son is trying to communicate with him. Yet when Clea threatens to call the police, Martin reconsiders. Before he leaves, Jake writes the phone number to Arnie's Pawn Shop on his father's hand, the last four digits of ...

'Touch' Recap: 'Pilot' (1.01)

1/26/2012 1:15am EST
Although it doesn't officially bow until March 19, FOX gave us an early look at the Kiefer Sutherland-led Touch tonight, and it was a glimpse at a series that could be something fantastic.

At face value, Martin Bohm couldn't be more different than Jack Bauer. He's an average, working-class guy interrupted from his work at JFK Airport so that he can get his mute son Jake down from a cell tower. Soon afterward, the number 318 starts popping up, whether it's on the back of a school bus, or on the knuckles of a random man in a convenience store (Titus Welliver, looking totally differen...

Blue Mountain State: Season Two (Lionsgate)

Spike's original series Blue Mountain State is one of my guilty pleasures. It's vastly inappropriate and doesn't always make sense, but it doesn't pretend to be anything other than a hilariously good time. In season two, slacker QB Alex Moran (Daytime Emmy winner Darin Brooks) is stuck trying to keep egotistical "star player" Ra...

Review: 'Larry Crowne' 'Two Jews On Film' Wonder 'What Were They Thinking? (Video)

Larry Crowne
By Joan Alperin Schwartz: Once upon a time, a Hollywood actor named Tom Hanks decided to write a film about a middle aged average guy who loses his job, goes to college, makes some new friends, joins a motor scooter gang, gets a makeover, and has his house foreclosed case I forgot to mention... He meets an alcholic college Professor who looks very much like Julia Roberts. They of course fall in love and live happily ever after.

Don't worry...I'm not spoiling anything. You know that's going to happen the minute Tom walks into Julia's class.

Not only did Tom Hanks write t...
