“…He’s gonna bury my miners!” – Drama
Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
Maybe it’s the fact that I’m writing this latest Entourage review for the first time this season without repeat viewings of the episode due to bank holiday shenanigans, or maybe it just was a much improved episode, but ‘The Big Bang’ was definitely a marked step in the right direction for the show heading in to the final two episodes.
Don’t get me wrong, I still have plenty of issues with this season – the main one being how they can possibly ever tie up every single plot thread that they have dangling at the moment in just two episodes – but given what had gone before it, this felt like Entourage at least back on track if not exactly winning the race.

“They used Kosher egg noodles and cottage cheese when I got shot in the head in New York Undercover…” – Drama
Rating: 2 out of 5 stars
Perhaps I’ve set my expectations too high for Entourage’s final season.
Given that the show is set to end after this reduced eight episode eighth season I had visions of the show going ‘out with a bang’ as an earlier episode in the season was titled. I imagined momentous storylines and a plethora of celebrities eager to guest star, but instead, thus far, season eight has pretty much felt like an average season of the show.
In a way that’s good, the show is staying true to itself and not going to extremes trying to be something it’s not in order to garner attention, but there’s part of me that feels a little sad that after eight years there seems to »

HollywoodNews.com: The big event in New York last night was HBO’s premiere of the eighth and last season of “Entourage.” The cabler spared no expense, with the red carpet screening at the Beacon Theatre followed by a lavish dinner at the American Museum of Natural History — in the whale room. So many revelations from the season, starting with Jerry Ferrara‘s–that’s Turtle–his 55 pound weight loss. He looks like a different guy. No mention is made of the difference in the first episode of the new season however. He just looks great.
Everyone else is back, including some guest stars like Rob Morrow, and exec producer Mark Wahlberg, as well as Lance Bass and a solo Zoe Kravitz, and mens clothing designer Domenico Vacca (fictional Ari Gold wears his gorgeous clothes). We did learn that Emmanuelle Chriqui, who plays Sloane, is in the final two episodes, »

Sometimes great actors make strange or ill-advised decisions. Here’s a list of ten actors and their weirdest film choices
For any actor, choosing a film role must be a true leap of faith. And if you happen to be an Oscar-winning or particularly famous actor, the decision making process must be more difficult still. How do you know the director of your next picture won't make you look like a complete idiot?
This list, then, is devoted to ten actors and a few of their oddest career choices. Not all of them are necessarily bad films, but the appearance of such esteemed actors in them most definitely is...
An actor once lauded as the finest of his generation, it's becoming increasingly difficult to reconcile Robert De Niro's remarkable early work (Mean Streets, Taxi Driver, The Godather Part II and Raging Bull, to name »
As a general rule, it's usually considered unwise for a heartthrob type to play a bad guy early in their career, which is a shame since being easy on the eyes always makes the pain when they plunge the knife in just a little more painful. Orlando Bloom's Dr. Martin Blake doesn't want to have anything to do with knives - his desire to make it into the internal medicine program is so he'll never have to administer needles, let alone a scalpel. Yet with hair swept over his forehead, you know Bloom has finally gone over to the dark side as Blake, a first-year resident who drowns in moral quandaries after becoming unusually obsessed with one of his patients (Riley Keough).
One wouldn't be entirely wrong to think Blake is interested in the pyelonephritis sufferer Diane because of her blue eyes and blonde hair, but where John Enbom »

Why is it, exactly, that romantic films get such a bad rap? Not romantic comedies, necessarily, which have demonstrated themselves to be surprisingly dextrous in their appeal, but straight-up, swing-for-the-fences, irony-free romance, in which seemingly perfect relationships are doomed for no reason other than the fact that it is frustratingly tragic. Some of it probably does have to do with the fact that most critics are men, and thus less likely to be sympathetic to things marketed away from them, but that doesn’t explain away the defensiveness of women who make absolutely sure that nobody thinks that they have any Harlequin novels stashed under the bed. Enter Only Love, a two-part, nearly three-hour miniseries in which talented actors work their way through a situation that sounds like the set-up to an elaborate joke. The film has an almost disarming confidence in its mission, which may provide some insight into »

Say what you will about the current comedy content of "Saturday Night Live" (and you could easily say things like "The show hasn't been funny in 10 years" or "The show has never been funny" without getting into very many arguments), but the musical performances remain a vital part of the show (despite the fact that even after 35 years, the "SNL" technical team still can't quite get the sound mix right for most rock bands). This past weekend, the Black Keys certainly had a coming out party with their typically loud, scuzzy appearance on the show, and on this day in 1992, a little band named Nirvana celebrated their second album's ascent to the top of the Billboard album chart (where it displaced Michael Jackson's Dangerous) with an eye-popping, ear-splitting, equipment destroying performance.
Though Nevermind had been released four months earlier, the album experienced a slow burn until "Smells Like Teen »
