Odd Mom Out Review – Bravo’s Rich-Hating Comedy Hopes To Wow

7 June 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

There’s no shortage of material when you’re staring in disbelief at the ridiculously rich, or making fun of them, but Odd Mom Out (built around Jill Kargman’s novels) has a strange feeling of over-familiarity.

Kargman stars as the “normal” forced into the world of New York’s super-elite, and while her daily routine is very similar to that of your average person tuning in (perhaps minus the walking around in her underwear all the time), she finds herself having to rub elbows with people she would rather have nothing to do with an awful lot of the time.

Said forced contact comes by way of school, and the mommy insanity that goes along with a Kindergarten by and for the hopelessly vapid. Although, new entrants in the fabulous world of intolerable people are Jill’s brother-in-law, and his wife, now that they’ve sold their bagel franchise for about $700 million. »

TV Review: Bravo’s ‘Odd Mom Out’

5 June 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Odd Mom Out” comes to Bravo with a clear voice and point of view. It’s just that the perspective warrants such marginal interest or sympathy as to significantly narrow its appeal. Featuring Jill Kargman as a Manhattanite whose privileged life pales next to the wanton affluence of the blow-dried moms that surround her, the show, created by Kargman, taps into a legitimate strain of yuppie angst — that somebody is able to provide better for their pampered brats than you can. But a smattering of funny lines in this scripted sitcom doesn’t make Bravo’s fictitious housewives more than passable company.

Actress and author Kargman plays Jill Weber, whose husband, Andy (“The Office’s” Andy Buckley), is a successful lawyer with whom she has three kids. The filthy rich, however, beginning with Andy’s blue-blooded family, heavily populate their extended circle in New York’s Upper East Side. Presided »

Ken Howard Weighs Another Term as SAG-aftra President

26 May 2015 1:59 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With nominations opening this week, Ken Howard is considering seeking a second term as national president of SAG-aftra.

Howard, 71, told Variety on Tuesday that he’s not ready to make an announcement on his candidate status but will fairly soon. He will have a month to decide, since the deadline for submitting nominating petitions is June 26.

He’s headed SAG-aftra since it was created three years ago and easily defeated Esai Morales and two other challengers in the merged union’s first election in 2013. Howard was first elected as SAG president as a moderate in 2009 and re-elected in 2011 — winning both times on a platform advocating the merger of SAG and AFTRA, which was overwhelmingly approved by members.

Nominating petitions are available Wednesday for the presidency, secretary-treasurer, national board seats, local board seats and convention delegate slots. Ballots will be mailed July 21 with results will be announced Aug. 20.

"Blade Runner": Sci-fi Classic Back In UK Cinemas

18 March 2015 7:02 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Mark Mawston

A great many people think Blade Runner is the greatest science fiction film ever made. It’s certainly one of the best; the Metropolis of its time when it comes to the realization of future cityscapes on film. Flying police cars aside, the main thing that rings true is that it was one of the first films to show a “used” future; a future where over-population and global warming feature as key elements. Of the four or so versions of the film that exist, from test print to original theatrical release to directors cut, the most complete, albeit with a running time of just one minute longer than some of the others, is that of The Final Cut, which the BFI have chosen to close its Days Of Fear And Wonder science fiction season. It is this version that has the Ridley Scott seal of approval and »
