Blu-Ray Review: ‘Hung: The Complete First Season’ Developed Right Chemistry

25 June 2010 7:55 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – HBO’s “Hung” doesn’t quite live up to the incredibly high standards of the best network on television but the sporadic writing on the show and very strong ensemble did produce enough interesting dramatic and comedic moments to warrant a look on the excellent Blu-ray release of the first season, timed to coincide with the premiere of season two on Sunday, June 27th, 2010.

Blu-Ray Rating: 4.0/5.0

The series premiere of “Hung” and even the next few episodes were missing that spark; the chemistry that elevates an experience from being just another one-night stand. The tale of a man (Thomas Jane) who lost everything in the horrible economy but maintained the rights to his giant pecker and how to use it was a hit-and-miss affair that too often missed for at least three episodes. Then the casting agent found the perfect supporting actress and gave her an excellent subplot and »

HBO Announces "Hung" Return Slate – Spoilers Synopses

9 June 2010 12:53 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

HBO Has spilled the beans on what it has in store for Hung fans this year.  Thomas Jane will be returning as the everyman-turned-gigolo.  Hung turned out to be one of the better comedy dramas to hit the airwaves last year, and I, for one, can't wait to see what moral slippery slopes Jane's Ray Drecker winds up on this season.  From the looks of this press-release, it looks like the Hung writers room is amping things up a bit.

Interview: Rose McIver in ‘The Lovely Bones’ From Director of ‘The Lord of the Rings’

23 April 2010 10:13 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “The Lovely Bones,” which is directed by “The Lord of the Rings” director Peter Jackson with a relatively unknown executive producer credit from Steven Spielberg, has gone down in history as a poorly reviewed film that was based on a much better novel of the same name by Alice Sebold. “The Lovely Bones” was released on DVD and Blu-ray on April 20, 2010.

Oscar nominee Saoirse Ronan stars as Susie Salmon in “The Lovely Bones” from Paramount Pictures.

Despite needing a higher-budget special effects department and featuring like a never-healing sore thumb one of the worst supporting performances in recent memory by the unknown Nikki SooHoo, the film did delicately tackle the sensitive issue of a pedophile murderer and rapist while still maintaining a “PG-13” rating. That role was hauntingly played by Stanley Tucci.

Tucci’s supporting role is the standout feature of this film. He earned »
