Sen. Ted Cruz Quotes Ashton Kutcher, Ayn Rand in Filibuster

Some still argue that culture and art have nothing to do with politics. Ted Cruz proved that wrong in his ongoing filibuster when he quoted recent Teen Choice Award winner Ashton Kutcher and novelist and celebrated objectivist Ayn Rand in the same breath. Sep 25, 2013 9:15 AM PT

FOX's 'Sleepy Hollow' Is Ridiculous, Spirited and Tea Party Friendly

FOX has a new fun and ridiculous show called Sleepy Hollow. It doesn't have much to do with the famous short story by Washington Irving, but everyone involved from Len Wiseman to Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman to the actors make sure the show has a lot to do with conspiracy theories, the book of Revelations and the Revolutionary War. It's a unique endeavor that more conservative, right of center and libertarian viewers may derive some extra pleasure from. Sep 24, 2013 3:16 PM PT

'Back in the Game' Review: James Caan's Gruff Persona Powers Boundary-Pushing Pilot

The big news, and the good news, of Back in the Game, a new comedy premiering on ABC, is that James Caan is returning to television. Caan is one of the better and more underrated actors of his generation and he's great in Back in the Game. In fact, he's the best part of the show. He plays up his age and gruff and rough around the edges persona in the pilot episode and earns some real laughs and genuine moments. Too bad the rest of the show can't quite live up to the legendary actor's efforts. Sep 24, 2013 10:39 AM PT

'Atlas Shrugged' Producers Turn to Kickstarter for Marketing Muscle

The new trend for movies seems to be to jump into the crowdfunding pool whether it be through a site like Kickstarter or Donald Trump's FundAnything. Podcast king Adam Carolla managed to earn over $1.4 million for his upcoming movie, Road Hard, and everyone from Zach Braff to Spike Lee has financed their next endeavors through Kickstarter.

'Hannibal: Season One' Review: Cannibal Drama Evokes Source Material, not Tepid Prequel

Hannibal seemed like a very bad idea when first announced especially after the disappointing Hannibal Rising in 2006. It seemed like Thomas Harris' character would never be properly cracked again without the expertise and skill of Anthony Hopkins. However, showrunner Bryan Fuller and his team have successfully relaunched Hannibal Lector by faithfully borrowing straight from Thomas Harris' material and by developing a show that is immensely satisfying and one of the best series television has to offer today despite being on a basic cable network (NBC).

'Chicago Fire: Season 1' Review: Dick Wolf's Latest Doesn't Preach, Simply Entertains

We've all had those sick days where we're laying on the couch, coughing up a storm looking for something to distract us on the tube. During the day, of course, the same thing seems to be on every channel: Law and Order. We scoff at the dun dun sounds and the seriousness of the show as we sit back to doze off to it. Except, before we know it, we've gone and watched far too many episodes and are completely caught up in what will happen next. Such is the talent of Dick Wolf. Sep 22, 2013 8:07 AM PT

'Bates Motel: Season 1' Blu-Ray Review: 'Psycho' Spin-off Soars with Stellar Cast, Concept

On the surface, Bates Motel seems like a cheap idea motivated simply by the want to cash in on the infamous Psycho name. The show follows a young Norman Bates and his mother before the events of the classic Alfred Hitchcock film. It's a show that shouldn't work, but it does due to the actors involved and the crisp writing overseen by Lost co- mastermind Carlton Cuse. Sep 20, 2013 1:21 PM PT

'World War Z' Blu-Ray Review: Undead Epic Brings the Summer Blockbuster Back to Life

The Summer Blockbuster is a genre unto itself. It used to be that a Summer Blockbuster was headlined by a star, was epic in nature and made audiences grip their chairs in excitement, laughter, suspense or whatever else the large film had to offer. Now the Summer Blockbuster has become a cliche. Our Summers are now full of cinematic droll that is more and more of the same. The special effects, budgets and stakes get higher and higher but the originality fades with every release. Now we rarely see anything beyond sequels or reboots over the summer and they all set themselves up the same way: the world is at stake and let's see how much crap we can blow up in the process of saving it. Nothing is wrong with that except most of these films ignore basic things that they need like character and story. I'm here to tell you that World War Z is a breath of fresh air for the fading Summer Blockbuster genre. Sep 17, 2013 1:39 PM PT

'Frankenstein's Army' Blu-Ray Review: Campy Found Footage Movie Brings Life to Comatose Genre

The found footage genre has become a cliche as it is overused to a crazy degree in today's cinema. Most found footage movies of today can feel gimmicky and pretentious. A lot of them have become films replacing originality with a simple gimmick that usually doesn't hold up. This is why Frankenstein's Army actually has some charm. Here's a film that has taken the found footage genre and tried to do something different with it. For that, this movie deserves some acclaim. Sep 10, 2013 4:00 PM PT

'The Life Acoustic' Album Review: Everlast Unplugs and Cranks Up the Artistry

Everlast, also known as Whitey Ford, is known to mainstream audiences as the man that gave the world the 90s hit What It's Like and as one third of the trio that rocked the world with Jump Around. More recent years have featured the talented musician settling his sound a bit more. His albums have become more independent, more political and lyrically spellbinding. His newest album, The Life Acoustic, is no different. Sep 9, 2013 1:07 PM PT

Honda Wants to Save Your Local Drive-In Theater

A lot of people, like myself, have written a fair amount this summer about the impending loss of drive-in movie theaters come January. As studios complete the switch to digital projection, some drive-in movie theaters could be left behind despite their best efforts. Honda recognized the issue, after visiting many drive ins at the beginning of the summer, and the company came up with their own sort-of solution. Sep 6, 2013 1:40 PM PT

'Sharknado' Blu-Ray Review: Self-Reliance Thrives in Hard to Hate B-Movie Madness

Sharknado is a film that ignited a Twitter storm when it first premiered on the SyFy channel. The movie openly embraces its B-movie roots and the ridiculousness of its story, promoting itself as the sort of film you get your friends to come over and watch while consuming lots and lots of alcohol. Plus, it's titled Sharknado. Sep 5, 2013 12:56 PM PT
