Berlin Film Review: ‘Erase and Forget’

12 February 2017 11:48 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The closing credits of a documentary always include a list of film and TV clips, along with the sources that granted their permission to use them. At the end of “Erase and Forget,” the list is jarringly different: It’s a catalogue of clips lifted right off of YouTube, listed simply by their URL addresses, with no permission given. This could prove to be a legal-rights nightmare for any company that was interested in distributing “Erase and Forget.” And it’s of a piece with the film’s thrown-together student-movie naïveté. The director, Andrea Luka Zimmermann, hasn’t so much made a documentary as presented 90 minutes’ worth of raw material for a documentary. Yet Zimmermann has grabbed hold of the tail of a fascinating subject: the life of James “Bo” Gritz, the Vietnam veteran who enjoyed 15 minutes of fame in the 1980s (he was said to have inspired the character »

Beam Me Up, Kitty! It’s Star Trek with Cats

6 February 2017 2:27 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Star Trek is a sci-fi classic; the only thing that could make it better? Cats.

Thankfully, the beacon of light that is illustrator Jenny Parks has transformed scenes from the original Star Trek series (sorry Next Generation and Voyager fans!) into kitty-filled tributes to the show.

We got a peek at the book she created out of this amazing brainstorm, which has the simple and straight forward title, Star Trek Cats.

So, let’s get ready to beam to a land where all things Star Trek just got a little furrier, and we aren’t talking about tribbles.

Bob Ingersoll: The Law Is A Ass #399

3 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

As A Lawyer, Ralph Bellamy Was Indefensible

It’s a good thing this story wasn’t part of the actual series. Otherwise we might not all be here right now.

I’m so old, I watched Perry Mason first run not on the reruns playing on every channel this side of C-span. But it’s not why I became a lawyer. Perry Mason was unrealistic. A murder trial every week where the real murderer was dumb enough to sit in the courtroom and watch. No, Perry Mason didn’t make me want to become a lawyer. The Defenders did.

The Defenders was a show about a middle-aged attorney – played by E.G. Marshall – and his fresh-out-of-law-school son – played by a young, pre-permed Robert Reed. Although the show had some murder mystery episodes, most dealt with some of the complex and serious issues of the time; abortion, religious intolerance, capital punishment, civil rights, »
