Abortion on TV: Three Ways Show Creators Got to Tell Abortion Stories on Their Own Terms

12 May 2017 2:16 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In 2016, three abortion stories told on TV caught the attention of critics. The plots on “Jane the Virgin,” “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” and “You’re the Worst” all normalized abortion as a natural part of women’s health. All of these stories, however, occurred pre-Trump.

While the debate over women’s reproductive rights never went away, the topic is back in the spotlight as a new health care bill seeks to treat pregnancies and rape as pre-existing conditions and Texas legislators seek to pass anti-abortion bills. Over on Hulu, “The Handmaid’s Tale” is looking less and less like fiction.

American Crime: Cancelled; No Season Four on ABC

12 May 2017 1:30 AM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

ABC has cancelled John Ridley's critically acclaimed, yet low-rated American Crime TV show. There will be no fourth season. Fans largely expected American Crime would be cancelled rather than renewed. The third season averaged a 0.39 rating in the 18 to 49 year old demographic and 1.92 million viewers. Acclaim is one thing, but ad-buys are king.  A crime drama anthology, the American Crime season three cast includes: Regina King, Felicity Huffman, Connor Jessup, Richard Cabral, and Benito Martinez. Sandra Oh, Cherry Jones, Tim DeKay, Janel Moloney, Dallas Roberts, Timothy Hutton, Lili Taylor, Ana Mulvoy-Ten, Mickaëlle X. Bizet, and Clayton Cardenas recurred in the third season on ABC.

Grey's Anatomy: Every Reason We Have to Believe Cristina Will Return

1 May 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

How has Grey's Anatomy managed to survive without badass cardiothoracic surgeon Dr. Cristina Yang for the last three seasons? Well, the popular medical drama has devoted quite some time to exploring Meredith's often precarious yet devoted sisterly bonds to Maggie and Amelia. As much as we love this new dynamic, there's no one quite like Mer's unapologetic soul sister - or "person," as Mer puts it. From the pilot episode to Cristina's departure in season 10, Meredith and Cristina grow together, rising through the ranks from clueless interns to fearless attendings as they support each other through the worst of times. And we really do mean the worst of times: shootings, plane crashes, you name it. Last Summer, Sandra Oh, the talented actress behind Cristina, sparked some hope in Grey's fans. She tweeted a picture with her Grey's Anatomy ex-husband Kevin McKidd, who plays trauma surgeon Dr. Owen Hunt, and former Grey's Anatomy screenwriter Tony Phelan. »

American Crime Finale Recap: Was It a Satisfying Ending? Grade the Episode

30 April 2017 8:16 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

This post contains spoilers for the Season 3 finale of American Crime.

For the second consecutive year, American Crime spent the final moments of its season in a tense courtroom — but unlike Season 2, which left viewers with two major cliffhangers, Sunday’s Season 3 finale offered the audience much more closure.

Before you tell us your thoughts on the season (and possibly series) ender, let’s recap the fate of each character — most of whom were left with no choice but to take responsibility for their harmful actions of the last seven weeks.

‘Catfight’ Finds Both Brutality and Humanity In Its Bloody Brawls

Pick of the WeekCatfight

What is it? Two old college friends cross paths as adults and beat the ever-loving crap out of each other.

Why see it? Onur Tukel’s latest is also his best thanks in part to the lead performances by Sandra Oh and Anne Heche. They do a good job of manipulating our sympathies and concerns ensuring that our loyalties shift from act to act. Themes of female friendships, class distinctions, and redemption run through alongside a satirical look at modern life, and there’s a terrifically wicked streak throughout. Funny, smart, and brutal are all apt descriptors for this cynical look at our violent selves.

American Crime: ABC Previews the Upcoming (Series?) Finale

17 April 2017 1:02 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

ABC has released the episode description for its American Crime TV show's season three finale. The question remains: will this also be the TV series finale? Executive producer Michael McDonald previously said if the crime anthology is renewed for a fourth season, it will focus on women in the workplace and sexual harassment. However, the third season, which centers on undocumented workers, drugs, and human trafficking has not fared well in the Nielsen ratings, so the series is likely to be cancelled.American Crime stars Regina King, Felicity Huffman, Connor Jessup, Richard Cabral, and Benito Martinez.

Catfight review

11 April 2017 8:29 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sandra Oh and Anne Heche beat the ever-loving crap out of each other in Onur Tukel's latest indie offering...

If you’ve only heard the briefest of things about Catfight, you’d be forgiven for imagining a sort of female version of The Fast Show’s ‘Long Big Punch Up’ and, to be fair, that wouldn’t be too far off the mark.

Turkish-American indie filmmaker Onur Tukel is back in the spotlight with this new outing, leaning into satire and away from his slightly more uncomfortable forays into horror-comedy.

While some of the director’s previous efforts, like Applesauce and Summer Of Blood, drew some extremely positive reviews, general audiences haven’t responded in kind so far, and he doesn’t make it easy for the mainstream to embrace him with Catfight, either. And you know what? Good. I may not have personally enjoyed a lot of Onur Tukel’s films, »

(Spoiler alert: Do Not read on if you haven’t watched Thursday’s episode of “Grey’s Anatomy”) We all know Dr. Owen Hunt right? Tall handsome doctor with reddish hair, played by Kevin McKidd? Who was previously dating Dr. Christina Yang (Sandra Oh), before that all went south and now he’s married to Dr. Amelia Shepherd (Caterina Scorsone)? Yeah well he’s just given all of us husband goals. Hunt has been an a-plus role model almost from the start. He and Dr. Shepherd — McDreamy’s sister — fell in love and got married.

Catfight review – troubling satire about America’s status fixation

12 March 2017 12:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A pair of ultra-competitive female friends struggle for dominance in an entertaining if gruesome way

A savage satire of America’s status-obsessed society seen through the prism of a pair of ultra-competitive female former college friends, Catfight is as troubling as it is punchily entertaining. With something of the dripping sarcasm of Mike Judge’s Idiocracy, and a series of face-crunching fight sequences, it makes for highly unusual and not always pleasant viewing.

Sandra Oh and Anne Heche play Veronica and Ashley, a pair of women whose respective successes are poisoned by the toxic rivalry between them. The bitchy exchanges between them are a viper’s nest of venomous spite, delivered with enjoyable cruelty. But the combat scenes – boosted by thunderously unpleasant sound design – labour the point until it’s reduced to a bloody pulp.

Catfight Review

10 March 2017 5:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

 

There are few films being released at present that are quite as absurd as Onur Tukel’s Catfight, and yet it’s a picture that blends its irreverence with a satirical undercurrent that enriches the narrative, making for a film that is irrepressibly entertaining – and yet is complete with a rather pointed socio-political message.

Sandra Oh plays Veronica, a woman who appears to have it all – a wealthy husband, a talented young son, and a seemingly straightforward life, with evenings spent drinking wine at gatherings amongst colleagues and friends. But is she happy? Not particularly – and this is a trait she shares with struggling artist Ashley (Anne Heche) who has taken to catering events alongside her partner Lisa (Alicia Silverstone) who she plans on having a child with.

It’s at one of these very functions that Veronica and Ashley’s paths cross – and much to their surprise, »

Catfight review – punches and punchlines in bloody black comedy

9 March 2017 2:45 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Sandra Oh and Anne Heche play college frenemies who come to blows in a dark satire that will have you in stitches

Here’s something to remind you that, however the debate currently stands, believably real violence is still pretty rare in the movies, and so the violence in this black comedy by the New York-based indie film-maker Onur Tukel is, in its way, startling and quite shocking. It is a vignette of extended nastiness that reminded me of something by Neil Labute, all about a fight between two women. The title both announces and pre-empts the possibility of our voyeurism. It is set in a sketchily imagined satire-future, where a new war on terror has been announced in the Us.

Sandra Oh is Veronica, an obnoxious trophy wife married to a wealthy military contractor. She is appalled at her teenage son’s ambitions to be an artist. With a shudder, »

Catfight Review: Dir. Onur Tukel (2017)

Catfight Review: Anne Heche and Sandra Oh star in a tale of two warring women who don’t pull any punches.

Catfight review by Kat Hughes, March 2017.

Catfight Review

If you’re after a film with something different, then Catfight might just be the movie for you. The story follows two women, former college classmates, over several years as events unravel following a chance reunion at a party.

Veronica (Sandra Oh) is living the life of luxury, content in her role of mother and trophy wife. Ashley (Anne Heche) is a struggling artist desperate for a sale, but her unique bloodthirsty style is putting punters off. She’s also under pressure from her girlfriend Lisa (Alicia Silverstone) to provide, so that they can have a child together. The pair cross paths at a party where Veronica is a guest, Ashley staff, and all Hell breaks loose. The duo literally battering each other to near death. »

‘Catfight’ Review: Sandra Oh and Anne Heche Beat Each Other to a Bloody Pulp

3 March 2017 1:37 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Veronica (Sandra Oh) is rich and entitled. She’s married to a defense contractor (Damian Young), lives in a huge Manhattan apartment, has a teenage son she’s actively discouraging from attending art school (“You can be whatever you want. Just not… this.”), and loves to drink to a degree that embarrasses her family. In current Buzzfeed-listed parlance, she is a textbook “Wine Mom,” one with a full grasp of her own assumed superiority. Ashley (Anne Heche) is poor and bitter. She’s a career-struggling artist whose overtly political art has few admirers, and she lives in Bushwick with her caterer girlfriend Lisa. »
