Today: Josh Hartnett is looking for a comeback, Damon Lindelof defends a bad ending, and MTV is keepin' on keepin' on.
Today in show business: Zach Braff has put Kate Hudson in the movie you bought him, the Angry Birds movie really is happening, and Claire Danes has a teen daughter.
Game of Thrones is the ultimate example of what premium cable can do — it's as lavish and ornate as it is brutal and shocking. Your schedule may be crowded, but this is must-see TV of the highest order.
Today we review two new movies based on old stories, the Snow White tale Mirror Mirror, and the Greek myth reimagining Wrath of the Titans.
Another one bit the glorious glitter dust last night, amid all the usual pomp and questionable circumstance. It was actually a somewhat scary bottom three, which will be a more and more frequent occurrence as the weeks wear on and our tributes begin to suffer from exposure. It's a grim business!
In what is probably the biggest news to hit dorm room halls since two girls came out of that dude's room that one morning, Will Ferrell has announced, in character on last night's Conan no less, a sequel to 2004's sleeper hit comedy Anchorman. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we may be at the beginning of nostalgia for the 2000s.
PBS has released ratings information for the most recent season of hit show Downton Abbey, the British import about post-Edwardian servants and masters swanning about a country estate, and, unsurprisingly, it's a big ol' hit with women.
Last night was a very emotional night at the ol' Idol song hut, with more than one tribute reduced to tears and everyone singing very intensely. They are starting to feel it, aren't they? The sharp potential for crushing defeat, the ever-brightening hope victory.
Perhaps the most brutal, most shocking thing about The Hunger Games is not the squalid conditions of District 12, not the callous monsters of the Capitol, not the pile of dead children lying in a field.
It is no longer comedians who parody candidates. People who work for actual politicians, or at least work for well-funded groups that support said politicians, are mounting their messages on platforms that look, at mildest, like any number of bitchy social media pages, and at most extreme like something straight ouf of Tim & Eric.
Amidst the cacophony of the Republican primary, it's easy to forget that Barack Obama is going to have to jump into this fray eventually. However, the reality, revealed in dozens of speeches he's given at closed-door fundraisers few bother to read, is he's been practicing for his campaign for nearly a year.
Though the weather might be turning nice, we know that what you still really want to do is stay indoors and sit on the couch. With that in mind, let's take a look at the television shows that could occupy your time until summer forces you out of the house.
Economy got you down? Worried that things aren't getting any better? Well here, at long last, is a sign that things really are on their way back into the black.
Did you guys now that the uber-amazing South by Southwest festival (aka SXSW, aka "South by" [if you're a monster]) is happening, like, right now in Austin? For those confused by their Twitter feeds right now, we'll try to translate.
Last night Bravo introduced us to another horde of shallow, materialistic ghouls roaming around California. What's so different that they merit their own show? Well, they're all the children of or are themselves Persian immigrants, thus the Shahs of Sunset.
Let's get to the important stuff first: Julianne Moore winningly captures the physicality of the Thrilla from Wasilla in in the new HBO film Game Change. It's a shame, then, that the rest of the movie is so much flatter.
Today we review Jennifer Westfeldt's new film Friends With Kids.
Ah, our first elimination episode here in the finals, and it was a satisfying one. It wasn't terribly surprising, perhaps, but it still needed to happen. Well done, Idol jerks. But before we get to all that! There's a whole episode to be discussed.
The days are getting longer and March has come in like a lion, which means it is springtime! So let's take a look at what's coming out from now until June, because while the weather might be turning nice, it's still more fun to sit inside in the dark.
