For a high-profile series headlined by a star like Dustin Hoffman and produced by the likes of Michael Mann and David Milch, this is an awfully extreme and rash decision. That said…
I’m no animal rights’ fanatic, but three horses dead in two years does sound like a systemic problem. And as someone who feels guilty when goldfish in my care die, I can’t say I wouldn’t have made the same decision.
Jeremy Renner replacing Jake Gyllenhaal in anything is always a win for Hollywood and America.
All the crap that gets made, all the unwanted sequels and remakes, and this one can’t get off the ground.
We’ll see “Daredevil 2: The Quickening” first.
Well, then I suggest they get on Fandango and start buying a ton of tickets.
This is a move to shorten the intense competition stretch between the announcements of the nominations and the awards, but also to bring in more viewers. The Academy seems to think Oscar’s ratings woes might have something to do with how fresh the films are in moviegoers minds.
I have a plan to fix the Oscars, but no one will listen to me — make better movies and employ actors who aren’t assholes.
Can you believe I’ve never seen “The Shield?” Don’t get me wrong, I want to, but unless it streams on Amazon or Netflix, I probably won’t.
Like that’s difficult.
LAST NIGHT’S SCREENING
We’ve been streaming old episodes of “Emergency.” It’s the kind of show David Zucker mercilessly mocked, but I have to tell you, it’s compelling television and perfect escapism.
