Review: 'Preacher' makes a colorful, violent splash in its series premiere

22 May 2016 8:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to Preacher, boys and girls. I published a review of the early episodes last week, and I have specific thoughts on the premiere coming up just as soon as I want you to feel like you smell... "Jesus, what kind of preacher are you?" -Cassidy AMC screened the Preacher pilot for critics back at the January press tour. Critic conversations after a mass screening are always fun, but this one was especially interested, because there was a clear divide in the room between those who knew the comics and those who didn't, which can be more or less summed up like this: Comics reader critic: "That was almost nothing like the comic, but I think I liked it?" Non-reader critic: "I think I liked it, but I have no idea what the hell I just saw." Though I belong to the former group, my goal is to treat Preacher »

Harker’s Hits: Hollywood

14 April 2016 5:22 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

There’s no such thing as quiet days in Hollywood. There’s always something happening and today is no exception, so let’s jump right into the fray!

• Oscar-winning legend Warren Beatty’s been keeping a fairly low profile since his wildly expensive Town & Country bombed 15 years ago. But apparently the lothario (long-rumored to be the subject of Carly Simon’s enduring hit “You’re So Vain”) is coming out of semi-retirement as news broke that his pet project based on the life of famed millionaire/movie producer/shut-in Howard Hughes will be released this fall. (He’s been working on this since the ’70s as writer, director, producer, and star.) What’s of more interest to me/us is that he also said he’s working on a sequel to his uber-stylish, three-time Oscar-winning comic-book adaptation Dick Tracy. No word on whether bold-name costars like Annette Bening, Al Pacino, »

How to Get Away With Murder Recap: Judge Not, Lest Ye Be Jugular'd

3 March 2016 10:48 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Nothing is ever as it seems on How to Get Away With Murder — until it actually is.

RelatedGrey’s Anatomy, Scandal, S.H.I.E.L.D. and 8 Other Shows Renewed at ABC

Yes, showrunner Pete Nowalk and his deliriously twisted writers are masters of the curveball, but sometimes they zip one straight down the middle as we stand there with our bats over our shoulders, kicking the dirt and cursing our own gullibility.

Which is my roundabout way of trying to comprehend and discuss this week’s #Omghtgawm revelation: Wes’ mother Rose actually committed suicide — just like the police ruled way back in 2006.

Phew, 'Writing's on the Wall' is not the worst Oscar-winning song ever

29 February 2016 2:30 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If you were sitting at home watching Sam Smith collect an Academy Award for his Spectre theme "Writing's on the Wall" and thinking, "Strange. I dislike that boring song and think Shirley Bassey would hate it too," you're in luck: Many of us agree and think it's a shockingly drippy entry in the 007 songbook. But is it the worst Oscar-winning song ever? A quick review of Oscar history says no. Phew. Let me first say that I defend several controversial song wins. I think "It Goes Like It Goes" from Norma Rae is as stirring as that year's touted loser "The Rainbow Connection," and I think "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp" is as worthy of an Oscar as Dolly Parton's "Travelin' Thru." But the following three songs are not just bad Oscar winners; they're dubious pop culture sensations that scare me to revisit. Let's begin with a »

17 Celebrities Who Will Forever Be Haunted by the Songs About Them

14 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Whenever a celebrity singer releases a breakup anthem, the public can't help but do some digging as to which of their famous significant others the song could be about. From Justin Timberlake's overt shout-out to Britney Spears in his "Cry Me a River" video to Taylor Swift's plethora of cryptic lyrics referencing past paramours, it's hard not to play detective and try to decode the possible messages. After Justin Bieber dropped his hit single "Sorry," people wasted no time declaring it a public apology to his ex Selena Gomez (for her part, Selena's 2014 hit "The Heart Wants What It Wants" was widely speculated to be about Justin as well). High-profile musicians write song lyrics about their wayward romances just like most nonfamous people would write in their journals - the only difference is that while your diary entry may be for your eyes only, their scrawled-on, tear-stained pages »
