Film Review: ‘Permanent’

Film Review: ‘Permanent’
It’s hard to decide which era “Permanent” is most nostalgic for: 1982, when writer-director Colette Burson’s semiautobiographical coming-of-ager is set, or the turn of the millennium, when movies like “Welcome to the Dollhouse” and “Ghost World” set the template for the kind of twee, adolescent-angst stories that reached their apotheosis a few years later with Fox Searchlight releases “Napoleon Dynamite” and “Little Miss Sunshine.” In either case, the movie does neither time period any real favors, being a funny-ish (but never outright funny) portrait of a high school girl whose biggest concern is her hair.

As such, the title “Permanent” refers to the chemical process (or “perm,” as the mainstream called it) made enviable by the likes of Meg Ryan, Stevie Nicks and Dolly Parton back when big hair and poodle-like ringlets were all the rage. It also describes the kind of damage that high school renders on teenagers everywhere, who carry the

‘Scandal’ Needs to Kill More Characters (Commentary)

‘Scandal’ Needs to Kill More Characters (Commentary)
(Spoiler alert: Please do not read on if you haven’t watched Thursday’s episode of “Scandal”) Wait for it … “Scandal” killed off Elizabeth North (Portia de Rossi) on Thursday night’s episode — only the second series regular casualty — and quite frankly, that’s not enough and we demand there be more deaths. Let’s put this in perspective for you. We are deep into Season 6 of “Scandal,” and only Harrison Wright (Columbus Short) and Elizabeth North, who’s really not even that important to the show if we’re being super honest, have died.

Scandal Round Table: Keeping Their Souls

  • TVfanatic
Olivia took a look back at what life could have been like for everyone if she had voted "no" on rigging the election in Defiance, Ohio all those years ago.

Our TV Fanatics Jim Garner, Sarah Hearson, Jasmine Blu, and Christine Orlando are here to discuss this look at an alternate reality, the future of the Gladiators, and Huck's faux "The Bachelor" addiction on Scandal Season 6 Episode 10.

Did you like the alternate chain of events?

Jim: It was fun to see a "what if" episode. I was kind of disappointed there wasn't even a mention of Harrison in the alternate timeline.

I understand Columbus Short had a pretty bad falling out with Shonda, but given how much he was a part of the beginning of Pope and Associates, I was hoping there would at least be a reference to him.

Sarah: I also thought it was weird that there

Every once in a blue moon a movie comes along toting a veteran actor who you can’t help but wonder how they got roped into such low-profile, amateurish garbage. Enter American Violence which somehow has Bruce Dern in it. Granted, he is only in the movie for roughly a combined 10 minutes, but still, it’s sad watching him reduced to such bargain bin quality after Quentin Tarantino gave
