With football season right around the corner, it's time to take a look back at the way Hollywood has immortalized coaches over the years. While most football movies focus on the players, a few have turned their eyes to the men (and women) calling the shots, giving us several good and bad portrayals of coaches.

Tony D'Amato, "Any Given Sunday"

Oliver Stone's let's-throw-it-all-together-and-see-what-sticks football opus has its faults, but one of them is not Al Pacino's performance as the coach of the beleaguered Miami Sharks. Stone coaxes one of Pacino's last great efforts by allowing...

Five Most Overrated & Underrated Political Films

We just went through the most fascinating and compelling election season ever in the television age. A lot of people are glad it's over, but there are those who simply can't get enough of the entertainment that is politics.

So the last respite for these political junkies is the political movie. But which to choose? Th...

Let's face it: Hollywood is thin obsessed. This is a town that forgives actual junkies sooner than junk-food junki...

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...
