The Weekend Read: Autism in entertainment from 'Rain Man' to 'Community'

28 March 2015 8:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Weekend Read: Our Saturday essay on the great topics in entertainment and culture today. Last weekend, as Toshi was cruising the Blu-ray shelves for new movies to start asking about, he pulled "Rain Man" on a shelf and considered the cover for a moment before he turned to me, excited. "You didn't tell me Tom Cruise made a superhero movie!" I can only assume his eventual disappointment might be tempered by the fact that "Rain Man" is a pretty good movie. It had been a while since I'd seen it, though, and after they went back to their mom's house, I put it in to watch it. I remember when it came out being right in the midst of my first time watching a lot of classic filmographies, and more than anything, I enjoyed the film as a match-up between Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise. Looking at the film, »

SXSW Film Review: ‘Night Owls’

21 March 2015 10:43 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A cracked romantic comedy depicting a one-night-stand turned all-night-standoff, “Night Owls” gives new meaning to the studiospeak phrase “execution-dependent.” Navigating a sharp tonal shift, parceling out backstories on a strict need-to-know basis, and taking place under unbelievable circumstances set entirely in a single location, director Charles Hood’s sophomore feature could have gone south in any number of ways. Fortunately, the execution here is impressively adroit, with a clever script enlivened by two charmingly compatible lead performances from Rosa Salazar and Adam Pally. A bit too low-key for the mainstream, it could nonetheless attract decent arthouse or VOD attention, shining a spotlight on both halves of its winningly wrong central couple.

Dispensing with any hopes for a meet-cute, the film introduces protagonists Madeline (Salazar) and Kevin (Pally) as they stumble back to Madeline’s place after meeting at a banquet. She’s a bartender by trade, viper-eyed and lubricious; he’s a goofy, »

Night Owls Review [SXSW 2015]

13 March 2015 11:30 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sometimes a movie succeeds based on one simple factor, and in the case of Charles Hood’s Night Owls, that single winning ingredient is chemistry. Bubbly, all-too-charming chemistry. It sounds like such a write-off, because every movie depends on the chemistry between performers, but we all know there’s sometimes a noticeable wall that prevents characters from forming a connected unit. Fortunately, that problem does not exist between leading cohorts Adam Pally and Rosa Salazar, who strike a hilariously romantic chemistry that so many typical genre snoozers so sorely lack. Oh the wonders you can accomplish with only two actors who click on humanistic levels that engage both comedy and emotion, and look no further than Night Owls for proof.

The film opens with a drunken fling between two nameless characters we eventually learn to be Kevin (Pally) and Madeline (Salazar), who are both riding the highs of the previous night. »

Bob Dylan’s Approach to Song Licensing Is Positively Surprising

4 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Bob Dylan’s preeminence in the pop music pantheon is secure. But what of his place in the movies?

The man who is being honored by the Recording Academy as MusiCares’ Person of the Year on Feb. 6 has also made an immeasurable impact in motion pictures and television with his music. In addition to winning an Oscar for his song “Things Have Changed” from Curtis Hanson’s 2001 film “Wonder Boys,” IMDb.com lists over 500 credits for Dylan songs used in motion pictures. But unlike other Baby Boomer-era songwriters of his fame and stature who’ve made the licensing of tracks and songs an arduous and expensive process, music supervisors are virtually unanimous in their praise of Dylan and his business team.

Given the importance of a catalog that stretches back more than 50 years, one could assume licensing a Dylan track would be a potentially budget-busting proposition. But the pros who »

Parenthood Series Finale: The Bravermans Say Goodbye

29 January 2015 10:15 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Admit it, everyone has wanted to be part of the Braverman clan at some point. Not because they had it all together - because they definitely didn't. They were far from perfect and didn't always see eye to eye, but the love they shared with one another was genuinely beautiful. There wasn't a school play or family dinner that a Braverman missed. So, of course, everyone had to come together for Hank and Sarah's wedding on Thursday's series finale - even Haddie (Sarah Ramos), who hadn't been in an episode since coming out to her parents in season 5. Before the wedding, »

Parenthood’s 6 Most Emotional Moments: A Legacy of Love and Tears

29 January 2015 5:00 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

With the beginning of a new year comes the end of Parenthood, the warm family drama that has lived through six seasons on NBC despite average ratings and mild critical attention. Over the course of its run, Parenthood has garnered a reputation fairly unique among today’s television landscape: that of a quiet tearjerker. By observing many types of familial relationships, from aunts and nieces to grandparents and grandchildren, the show manages to elicit emotions from overwhelming joy to authentic sorrow. Below are the most affecting moments from each season, and a look at how each of these scenes prove what the show is capable of at its best:

Diner in the Rain: “Lost And Found” (Season 1, Episode 13)

The first season of Parenthood was wobbly. Much of the show’s appeal came from knowing these characters and caring about their often-minor exploits. That’s a difficult feat to pull off in thirteen episodes, »

The lessons NBC’s Parenthood has taught us

28 January 2015 7:08 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Parenthood, Jason Katims’ follow-up to Friday Night Lights, draws to an end, here’s what the Braverman family has taught us…

Warning: contains Parenthood spoilers.

For those of us whose real-life parents and siblings are too geographically distant, troublesome or simply few to play a big part in our day-to-day lives, for the last five years, NBC has offered a solution. Meet surrogate TV family, the Bravermans

Residents of Berkeley, CA, the Parenthood gang enjoy the kind of close-knit family life that TV often promises, but reality - with its inconvenient travel and time demands - rarely delivers. Few of us live in houses large enough to accommodate errant daughters and teenage grandchildren, and fewer of us are located so close to our grown-up siblings that we can bring coffee and problems to their workplaces on an almost daily basis.

Who has the time to gather the entire family for regular stand-up arguments, »
