Julian Roman's Top 10 Movies of 2012

31 December 2012 2:32 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Putting together this year's best of 2012 list is akin to the buffet at my favorite barbeque restaurant. There's so many good choices, it's pretty difficult to know what to pick. 2012 was an excellent year in cinema. From Sundance in January to the slew of awards contenders in December, there was a tremendous variety of great films across every genre. Whittling down to the ten best movies was as tough a process as I've ever had writing this article. I chose my top 10 with the ideal of repeated viewing in mind. What films would stand the test of time? What films would I watch a second time if it were 3Am and I came across them on late night TV? Much like the buffet analogy, what would make me fill up my plate again and again. As we review the choices, let's start off with the films that didn't make the cut. »

Ufc 155 Review With Podcast

31 December 2012 5:54 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The Ufc finished off 2012 in grand style as Cain Velasquez (11-1) retook his Heavyweight title from the very man that won it off of him a year ago, Junior Dos Santos (15-2).  In episode 013 of the Getting Lucky Mma podcast, I am joined again by co-host Marcus Mitchell to review all the action and the low points of Ufc 155.  In part 1, we review all of the prelims on the Facebook and FX undercards.  On part 2, we move on to the main card.

Ufc 155 Prelim Review

Ufc 155 Main Card Review

Episode (#013) Summary

Facebook Card: The card started out with an exciting Flyweight match-up with John Moraga (12-1) taking a third round submission over #7 ranked Chris Cariaso (14-4). This certainly puts Moraga solidly into the top ten and likely puts him a fight away from being a true contender.

They were followed by split decision king, Leonard Garcia (15-10-1) against upcoming prospect Max Holloway (7-1). Surprisingly, »

Exclusive: Walton Goggins Talks Billy Crash in Django Unchained

26 December 2012 12:27 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Walton Goggins Talks Billy Crash in Django Unchained, in theaters across the country right now!

Django Unchained opened in theaters across the country on Christmas day. One of the most talked about moments finds Walton Goggins as Billy Crash torturing our hero Django, played by Jamie Foxx. After threatening to castrate the former slave, who hangs naked and upside down in a hollowed out barn, Billy turns to leave, giving Django's vulnerable groin a disturbing tickle. It's a small, subtle moment that is pure Quentin Tarantino. It's a tiny, fleeting bit of minutia, but at the same time, it says so much about Billy Crash, a fast firing lackey of Calvin Candie's (Leonardo DiCaprio) who refuses to accept any person of color as a free man.

We caught up with Walton Goggins to chat about his disturbing scene, which rests right up there with the ear decapitation from Reservoir Dogs »

‘The Walking Dead’ Loses Mazzara As Showrunner, Suggesting Continued Tensions At AMC

22 December 2012 10:01 PM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Rachel Bennett

Television Editor & Columnist

***

When AMC announced it renewed The Walking Dead for a fourth season Friday, it didn’t come as much of a surprise. What was a shock, however, is that showrunner Glen Mazzara will not return to oversee that season.

“For future seasons, the two parties have mutually decided to part ways,” says a joint statement from AMC and Mazzara. “Both parties acknowledge that there is a difference of opinion about where the show should go moving forward, and conclude that it is best to part ways. This decision is amicable and Glen will remain on for post-production on Season 3B.”

The statement adds, “Glen guided the series creatively for Seasons 2 and 3. AMC is grateful for his hard work.”

Mazzara released his own statement and expressed a similar sentiment. “My time as show runner on The Walking Dead has been an amazing experience, but after »

He Said, She Said: Golden Globe Nominations

With the Emmys behind us, it’s time to focus on the Golden Globes.

The 2013 Golden Globe nominations were announced Thursday to much surprise and some bewilderment, as occurs with most award shows. The ceremony will take place Jan. 13 and will be hosted by the dream team of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

We here at ScottFeinberg.com loved some of the nominations, but we’re still shaking our heads over some people and shows that are missing. Take a look at our thoughts on the Golden Globes below:

Carson’s Take

Three Nominations I Loved

1. Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Drama: Connie Britton, ABC’s Nashville (All of the Nashville love, really)

ABC’s Nashville has definitely proven itself to be my favorite new show amid the lackluster new programming this fall. With the incomparable Britton at the helm, »

'American Horror Story' scoop: Who's back? Who's pregnant? Who's dying? 5 teases from the winter finale

11 December 2012 1:31 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

This week’s episode of American Horror Story: Asylum is without a doubt one of the season’s best hours — I’d actually put it up there with “I Am Anne Frank Part 2.” Titled “The Coat Hanger,” the installment serves as a winter finale for the FX hit until it returns in January with four remaining episodes. Now, I don’t want to spoil it all for you Ahs fans because it’s that good. But here are 5 teases to prepare you for one of the most bats*** crazy episodes yet…and I mean that in the best way possible. »

Violence On TV: Can It Bridge The Cable-Broadcast Divide?

5 December 2012 9:00 PM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Carson Blackwelder

Television Contributor

***

Some of the most popular shows on TV are obsessed with violence — but the catch is that almost all of these shows are on cable rather than broadcast television.

This fall, AMC’s The Walking Dead dominated the ratings, besting even ABC’s Modern Family and NBC’s The Voice by becoming TV’s highest-rated scripted program in the key adult demo.

The Walking Dead doesn’t hide the fact that it’s one of the most gruesome series on TV, and cable is full of similar programs providing scares, thrills and reasons to cover your eyes on a weekly basis. HBO’s Game of Thrones, AMC’s Breaking Bad and FX’s American Horror Story: Asylum are just some recent examples.

Although cable is capable of pulling off such gore, the question remains, can the trend successfully transfer over to broadcast (ABC, CBS, Fox, »

Julie Andrews on holiday showings of her movie classics: 'Who's luckier than me?'

29 November 2012 3:40 PM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Julie Andrews has no designs on replacing Santa Claus as a symbol of the holiday season, but she's giving him a good race anyway.

That's reaffirmed by the veteran talent's current television appearances. This weekend alone, she'll be present vocally in "Shrek 2" on MoreMax (Friday, Nov. 30) and "Shrek Forever After" on FX (Saturday, Dec. 1), and she'll be both seen and heard in "Eloise at Christmastime" on Hallmark Channel (Sunday, Dec. 2).

And that's hardly all: ABC Family ran Andrews' Oscar-winning performance in Disney's "Mary Poppins" over Thanksgiving weekend, and the channel also will feature her voice in the animated "Despicable Me" (Saturday, Dec. 8) and her presence in the two "Princess Diaries" movies (Friday, Dec. 28). And ABC again airs her much-beloved work in "The Sound of Music" Sunday, Dec. 23.

"I'm sort of pasted all over the place," Andrews tells Zap2it with a hearty laugh. "I must say, the mailbox does »

TV on Tap: Ryder Strong Isn't a Part of "Girl Meets World," Gay Groups Take on "Dr. Oz" and Is "Spartacus" Getting a Sequel?

This is how an engagement begins on 30 Rock.

News

The axes were swinging yesterday. MTV's take on The Inbetweeners won't get a second season, Deadline reported. Meanwhile, Emily Owens, M.D. will end once all thirteen episodes have aired and Fox is burying the last two episodes of The Mob Doctor in an unmarked time slot on Saturday night. I guess time is running out for me to catch an adorable, bespectacled Justin Hartley.

It wasn't all bad news yesterday, ABC ordered five more episodes of Malibu Country. It also ordered more episodes of Last Men Standing... so the bad news came right back.

GLAAD, Glsen and Pflag have issued a joint statement criticizing Dr. Oz for the way he presented ex-gay therapy on yesterday's show.

AMC is taking away our chance to incredulously wonder why a critically acclaimed show like Breaking Bad is followed by Small Town Security since »

‘Looper’ Director Rian Johnson Discusses Creative Process, Influences, Heightened Reality

27 November 2012 9:25 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Rachel Bennett

Television Editor & Columnist

***

They say the third time’s the charm, and that appears to be the case for writer-director Rian Johnson.

Looper, Johnson’s third and most ambitious feature , opened on Sept. 28 and quickly became one of the year’s most critically acclaimed and commercially successful releases. The story of a man (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) assigned to kill the 30-years-older version of himself (Bruce Willis) after time-travel is discovered, it’s a rare blockbuster that’s both creative and smart. It has thus earned Johnson comparisons to fellow filmmakers like Christopher Nolan and Darren Aronofsky.

Oh, and Looper is also immensely profitable: made on a mid-range budget of just $30 million, it grossed $66 million at the U.S. box-office and another $97 million abroad. How many other 2012 films can compete with those profit-margins?

Looper marks the second large collaboration between Johnson and star Gordon-Levitt, who worked together on Johnson’s first feature, »

The Walking Dead: season three, episode six

23 November 2012 3:02 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Pace is not something you would normally associate with a zombie show, but this week, Rick, Michonne et al were not in the mood for hanging around

Spoiler Alert: This blog is for people watching season three of The Walking Dead on FX. Don't read on if you haven't seen episode six – and if you've seen later episodes, please do not leave spoilers.

Catch-up with Phelim O'Neill's episode five blog

Hounded

American TV shows are showing a welcome increase in urgency at the moment. They used to be happy to spin out plot points for entire seasons, Lost-style; now they seemingly cannot wait to put their cats among the pigeons. Homeland, Sons of Anarchy and even Boardwalk Empire have whipped up the pace - and now, despite being the show deemed least likely to start moving like a rocket, so has The Walking Dead.

American Horror Story: Asylum Episode Recap: “The Origins of Monstrosity”

21 November 2012 8:01 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Last week on FX's American Horror Story: Asylum, we closed out the two-part episode of "I Am Anne Frank," featuring guest star Franka Potente. Now, we're getting into the fallout from that episode as more truths and origins are revealed, forcing some alliances to be forged within the confines of Briarcliff Asylum to the exclusion of others. Plus new characters, dead characters and a spooky little girl! American Horror Story: Asylum stars Jessica Lange, Zachary Quinto, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson and Lily Rabe, along with newcomers Adam Levine, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, James Cromwell, Joseph Fiennes, Chloe Sevigny, Lizzie Brochere and Clea Duvall. Hit the jump for the recap and review of tonight’s episode, "The Origins of Monstrosity." [You have entered spoiler territory.  Turn back now or commit yourself to the insanity.] Though not nearly as visually engrossing as last week, tonight's episode did give some interesting reveals as to the nature of these disturbed characters. We find out that Dr. Thredson (Quinto) has deep-seated mommy issues while Dr. »

Sons of Anarchy Review: "To Thine Own Self"

20 November 2012 8:30 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Well, this should be interesting.

With the events on "To Thine Own Self," Sons of Anarchy has painted itself into a corner.

Can Clay Morrow really survive to fight, ride and scheme for another season? How can the FX thriller realistically keep this character alive, now that all his secrets and actions are out in the open?

Juice and Gemma know about the Nomads. Chibbs and Bobby are up to date on Tara and Piney. Jax is more obsessed than ever with outing - and presumably killing - his stepfather.

The CIA gave Kurt Sutter a believable reason to keep Clay around last year, but that blackmail plot has also been foiled. It's certainly not beyond this series to kill off a major character (continue to Rest in Peace, Opie), but it's remains difficult to imagine Clay taking a bullet any time prior to the final season. It's also difficult »

American Horror Story Scares Will Continue for Season 3

18 November 2012 4:48 AM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Ryan Murphy isn’t finished frightening us. His spooky hit drama American Horror Story was just renewed for a third spine-tingling season.

What new horrors await us this time? TV Line broke the news that the show’s star, Ms. Jessica Lange would return for the third incarnation of the series. I think that’s very cool. She played Southerner, Constance, for Season 1 and has been the Asylum‘s Sister Jude this season. The role of Constance won Lange both the Golden Globe and a Primetime Emmy.

American Horror Story: Asylum ends on Jan. 23 and the new 13-episode third season begins production this summer. You can enjoy what’s left of this season on the FX network on Wednesday nights.

When I say the series is popular, I really mean it. Asylum averages over 5 million viewers.

If you’re confused about the different seasons not being related, don’t be. »

Sons of Anarchy, Ep. 5.10, “Crucifixed”: “Who the hell are you?”

Sons of Anarchy Season 5, Episode 10: “Crucifixed”

Written by Kurt Sutter

Directed by Guy Ferland

Airs Tuesdays at 10pm Et on FX

It was clear from the beginning that absolutely nothing in the world of SoA is holy, but just to reassure us of that, Kurt Sutter (aka Otto) brutally stabs Nurse Pam with a crucifix while turning Tara into an accessory to murder in the process. Ensuring to kill his own testimony in the Rico case, while taking Tara right down with him in order to lash out at Jax: brilliant. It’s a little scary what this character is capable of doing trapped inside jail, strapped to the bed; imagine what he must have been like on the outside. And to think of what jail time would do to Tara, with all that twisted darkness we‘ve seen in her lately, the disturbing baby wake-up by stomping on »
