    TV Review: ‘Solar Opposites’ Slow Start Displays Some Potential But Also Some Drawbacks

    Justin Roiland burst into geek culture with the success of “Rick and Morty” as a cult hit. It was clear that Roiland’s absurdist view of sci-fi and pop culture could yield special results. It’s no surprise that Roiland cashed in some of his chips on the wholly unique “Solar Opposites” on Hulu. While it attempts to […] More

    TV Review: ‘Good Girls’ Steals Little More Than Your Time

    A grand heist remains a staple of modern film and TV. “Good Girls” imagines a grocery store heist by three suburban housewives, rather than your classic bank robber tale. The hour long episodes cover a good bit of ground. However, the show can’t seem to figure out whether its a comedy or drama. The comedy […] More

    Film Review: “The Neon Demon” is constant style and only sporadic substance

    There’s no denying that filmmaker Nicholas Winding Refn has a consistently unique style to his work. The thing is, sometimes it results in a breathtakingly good time at the movies, like with Drive, while other times the end result is something frustrating, like his new outing The Neon Demon. This is very much in the […] More

    Emmy Circuit: Drama Supporting Actress

    Welcome back to Emmy Circuit, our weekly breakdown of one Emmy category in the run-up to Emmy nominations in mid-July.  In case you missed last week, I discussed the revolving door of Best Actor in a Drama Series.  This week, I stick with drama series, but I switch gender and drop to supporting.  That’s right–it’s […] More

    Film Review: Lost River (★★★)

    For his directorial debut, actor Ryan Gosling has chosen to craft something very odd with Lost River. Part ode to David Lynch, part offshoot of Beasts of the Southern Wild, part part dark fairy tale, and part an animal all its own, it sort of defies easy discussion. This is an art film through and […] More

    Circuit 3: The Characters of Mad Men

    This weekend, the big release is Furious 7. But if you thought for one second I would dedicate a Circuit 3 to that franchise, you’re probably as likely see a week dedicated to Michael Bay. Instead, let’s dedicate this edition to one of the greatest TV dramas of all time, Mad Men, which premieres its final season this […] More

    Emmys Circuit: Drama Supporting Actress

    The supporting categories at the Emmys can often be ripe for frequent rotation, despite continual good work. Sometimes, many of the contenders die in their shows (see: Drama Supporting Actor, which we’ll get to in a few weeks), but often new contenders push perennial nominees to the sidelines. But will that happen this season? Check […] More

    Ryan Gosling’s ‘Lost River’ headed to a different distributor?

    After what can at best be referred to as a mixed reception from the folks at Cannes for Lost River (somewhat reminiscent of the response that Only God Forgives received at the festival last year), Ryan Gosling‘s directorial debut might not be staying with Warner Brothers. Apparently, the studio is looking to smaller and more […] More
