Sully Movie Review: Clint Eastwood Teaches Heroism 101 to 'the Pussy Generation'

'Sully' movie with Tom Hanks as pilot Chesley Sullenberger: Clint Eastwood homage to 'the durable, honorable American male.' 'Sully' movie review: 'Taut, straightforward' drama features Clint Eastwood's latest all-American hero When considering Sully, Clint Eastwood's taut, straightforward account of heroism on trial, it helps to remember that the title character's name works as both noun and verb. And one can see how Eastwood was drawn to both meanings. The noun, of course, is the nickname of airline pilot Chesley Sullenberger, who saved the lives of 155 passengers and crew on January 15, 2009, by pulling off a daring water landing after a flock of birds took out both engines of his Us Airways flight minutes after it took off from New York's Laguardia airport. The Sully depicted here is, like many Eastwood heroes, made of uniquely American clay; a sturdy, rigorous material that the director,

Review: For once, the very good 'Survivor's Remorse' fits its not great title

Review: For once, the very good 'Survivor's Remorse' fits its not great title
Titles for TV series are tough. You want something that gets attention, but also captures the subject and tone of your show, and you don't want to alienate potential viewers in the process. We've all shared a sigh over the poor choices that the folks behind Terriers, Trophy Wife, Cougar Town, et al right now, and if Crazy Ex-Girlfriend doesn't make it past its second season, we can once again rail against anyone's belief that the audience appreciates nuance and/or irony in titles. The Starz basketball comedy (from LeBron James' production company) Survivor's Remorse has a name that's not as off-putting as some of the ones above, but it's not particularly good, either. Sure, one of the key themes of the show is the way its hero, young basketball star Cam Calloway (Jesse T. Usher) feels bad about escaping a tough neighborhood to become rich and famous, but

Judging by These Photos, Will Smith Has Yet to Begin the Aging Process
It seems as though Will Smith - much like his lovely wife, Jada - has yet to begin the aging process. The actor hit the red carpet for the premiere of his new film Concussion during AFI Fest in La on Tuesday, and we couldn't ignore the fact that he looks pretty much exactly the same as when he first won our hearts on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air over 25 years ago. Will posed for photos with a few of his costars, Mike O'Malley, Paul Reiser, and Albert Brooks, as well as Dr. Bennet Omalu, the forensic neurologist he portrays in the film. Will made a return to the red carpet at the Hollywood Film Awards last week, where he mingled with other stars like Johnny Depp, Reese Witherspoon, and Jamie Foxx. We'll likely get to see more of him as he gears up to promote Concussion before its release on Christmas Day.

Review: Why 'Survivor's Remorse' should be your Sports 'Entourage' of choice
A couple of months ago, as I prepared to tape a radio appearance, the host and I discussed potential topics, and I noted that Starz's basketball comedy "Survivor's Remorse" would have its second season premiere that weekend, and I liked the show a lot. "I have honestly never heard of that show before," she told me. And this wasn't someone with a general interest show just doing a segment on television; this was someone who hosts an entire show about television. I know, I know: Peak TV in America, Starz has always had trouble getting traction with its comedies (Rip, "Party Down"), the title gets across the basic theme of the show (Jessie T. Usher's Cam Calloway feels guilt over making it out of a tough Boston neighborhood to become a pro hoops star) while never conveying what the show is actually about (or that it's a comedy), the

During our recent webcam chat (watch below), "Survivor's Remorse" creator Mike O'Malley reveals the inspiration for his new Starz comedy series about a young basketball star who grew up poor and then all of a sudden makes it big. "Once you start to have money, what is that like for you? What is that like for your family, your friends and the people that you're close to?

Glee Series Finale Recap: The New Directions Don't Stop Believin' for One Minute

Glee Series Finale Recap: The New Directions Don't Stop Believin' for One Minute
Over its six seasons, Glee has consistently proven that it can stick a landing, and the series finale was the absolute epitome of the scrappy musical dramedy's ability to obliterate the memory of the bumpy road behind with one revelatory moment of heart-pumping, tear-jerking, can't-stop-yourself-from-smiling, singing-and-dancing glory.

The series's two-hour finale appropriately ended with One Republic's anthemic feel-good tune "I Lived." Indeed, the show "did it all." It was, for better or (often) worse just as messy and ridiculous as life – but, in its best moments, also as uplifting and powerful.

Considering how wildly uneven Glee has been for,
