'Psych' 5.16 'Yin 3 In 2D' Review

December 23rd, 2010 9:53am EST
Psych
In my years of writing, I've developed a theory when it comes to villains: as long as it takes to develop a good one, it can take no time at all to overuse them. Wisely, Psych has decided to conclude its ongoing Yin/Yang story with this third installment. Yet there's a tall order to fill, considering the two previous episodes have seen both Shawn's mom and his now-girlfriend Juliet in the line of fire. What could top that?

A woman named Allison (Mena Suvari) claims that she was abducted by the mysterious Mr. Yin, bringing back memories for the SBPD crew, and it isn't long before sh...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Salt,' 'Valhalla Rising,' & More

July 19th, 2010 10:20am EDT
Salt
I saw both the “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” and “Inception,” which premiered last week. Personally I thought “Inception” is the best movie that I have seen all year. “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” was fun, but in no way does it even reside on the same level of filmmaking. If you’re interested in reading my thoughts on each, check out my reviews here.

Angelina Jolie’s action thriller “Salt” arrives in theaters this week, as well as the dark age adventure “Valhalla Rising,” the dramedy “Life During Wartime,” the family film “Ramona and Beezus,” and the documentary “Countdown to Zero.”

Actress Ally Sheedy used her appearance on the red carpet at a recent gay event to 'out' her daughter as a lesbian.

The Breakfast Club star took her teenage daughter Rebecca to a charity event in Los Angeles earlier this week for The Trevor Project, a non-profit group dedicated to helping youngsters who are questioning their sexuality.

James Roday Talks The Darker Turn Psychs Fourth Season Finale Ta
"I don't want to pull the rug out from under our fans every week and slap them in the face with stuff, but this was the season finale, and it was the long-awaited return of Mr. Yang. Yeah, we kind of wanted to load in with as much stuff as we could. That's a fun way to end the season, I think," Psych’s James Roday starts when discussing tonight's finale episode, "Mr. Yin." And for Roday, the airing comes with a lot at stake. Not only is he the star of the show but he directed the noir-style episode, an homage to famed (and one of his favorites) director Alfred Hitchcock, as well.

Race Matters: Is Hollywood Truly Color Blind When It Comes To On-Screen Romance?

September 29th, 2008 9:49am EDT
Die Another Day
In John Grisham's bestselling novel "The Pelican Brief," investigative journalist Gray Grantham and law student Darby Shaw uncover a political conspiracy and in the process, end up between the sheets. In the 1993 film version, Darby Shaw (played by Julia Roberts) and Grantham merely share a chaste hug in the film's conclusion. What happened between page and screen? One theory: In the novel Grantham is white; in the film, he's portrayed by Academy-Award winning - and black - actor Denzel Washington.

The stigma of interracial relationships in cinema can be traced back to the 1934 Motio...
