Everyone's got something to hide as the lies fly on this week's 'Agents Of Shield'

3 hours ago

This week's episode opened strong with a sequence that established Marcus Daniels. I like scenes that are staged primarily to introduce someone's superpowers, and I thought this one was pretty simple and effective. Daniels is sort of a generic off-the-shelf bad guy who can absorb energy, and his only real purpose in the episode is to give Coulson and his team a reason to reconnect with the Cellist who was mentioned in "Iron Man 2" and "The Avengers." This is also the first time since we've learned that Agent Ward is such a piece of garbage that we've seen him spend an entire episode interacting with his team. Honestly, the reveal has made him more interesting than he's been the entire time the show's been on the air. One of you in our comments section made the comparison to David Boreanaz once he got to play Angelus on "Buffy The Vampire Slayer, »

'Real Housewives of New York City' recap: Everyone's mad at Kristen

4 hours ago

Really, this should be an episode ripped from a Travel Channel show. Everyone's having fabulous parties with amazing food and there's even fireworks in the offing, but all of the women are too busy screaming at one another (or watching other women screaming at one another) to notice how great they have it. If anything, we all probably need a glass of Ramona pinot just to get through it. Now, let's see if I can remember all of the many, many battles that broke out in this episode, because after a certain point I think I developed post-traumatic stress disorder and blacked out. Oh yes, Kristen decided to have a play date with Aviva, which was less playing and more fighting. First, Aviva is deeply offended when Kristen compares a toy with googly eyes to Ramona. Aviva thinks this is disgusting behavior that proves what a she-beast Kristen is. I »

Interview: Keith Carradine talks 'Fargo' and a 'Deadwood' anniversary

6 hours ago

Calgary - If actors aren't monitoring when there shows are celebrating their 10th anniversaries, I've taken it upon myself to inform them. Like in January, Method Man didn't know that the 10th anniversary of "Method & Red" is coming up this summer, but I told him. And now he knows! Assuming he remembers. Which he probably doesn't. And in March, on the Calgary set of FX's "Fargo," I told Keith Carradine about the 10th anniversary of "Deadwood." He hadn't known, but he's more likely than Method Man to remember. And yes, I place the 10th anniversaries of "Method & Red" and "Deadwood" on the same plane. Playing Lou Solverson, father of Allison Tolman's Molly Solverson, Carradine is part of the soulful core of "Fargo." Yes, there's a spiraling assortment of increasingly violent crimes, but there's also the relationship between a father, a former cop now living a safer life behind the counter of a diner, »

Review: 'Fargo' - 'The Rooster Prince'

7 hours ago

A review of tonight's "Fargo" coming up just as soon as I find a human foot in a toaster oven... Episode 1 of this strange new Coen-adjacent adventure kept things relatively simple. We got to know the perpetually bullied Lester, got to appreciate Lorne Malvo's role as a homicidal bringer of chaos, got to appreciation the relationship between chief Vern and deputy Molly, then saw how the murder of Sam Hess triggered all sorts of problems and additional violence. It's not the 1996 movie in microcosm, but it's a small enough story that one might wonder how Noah Hawley intends to get 10 episodes out of it. With "The Rooster Prince," Hawley makes very clear that he's got many weeks of material here, as he introduces several major new characters and plot threads. Sam Hess's murder is the inciting incident, but there's an awful lot more going on here. Because the murders of »

Disney is turning 'It's a Small World' into a movie now

7 hours ago

Disney is bringing another theme park ride to the big screen. Suspiciously coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the "It's a Small World" attraction at Anaheim's Disneyland theme park, Deadline is reporting that the studio will now be turning the popular musical ride into a feature-length film. Director Jon Turtletaub ("Last Vegas," "National Treasure") is on board to helm the adaptation from a script by Jared Stern ("The Internship," "The Watch"), who pitched the idea to the studio.  Not surprisingly, Disney is viewing the film as the potential start of another mega-grossing franchise a la "Pirates of the Caribbean," which has brought in over $3.7 billion worldwide (with a fifth entry potentially on the way). A film based on The Disneyland attraction "Mr. Toad's Wild Ride" is also reportedly in the works. How do you feel about "It's a Small World: The Movie"? Vote in the poll below to let us know. »

Ranking The 20 Best Disney Songs Of All Time

8 hours ago

"Frozen" may have been released months ago, but the Disney animated musical is hitting an awful lot of milestones just recently. Just this week, "Frozen" became the sixth highest-grossing internationally-released film of all time; it became the No. 1 worldwide animated feature. It crossed the $1 billion mark at record speed earlier this month. Tomorrow, its soundtrack is slated to become the first set from an animated feature to have spent 11 weeks at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 album sales chart (beating the previous record holder, Disney's own "The Lion King," which roared for 10). And the soundtrack has sold in excess of two million copies, in a recorded music era when so few albums even go gold. Certainly, such strongholds are a testament to Disney's enduring filmmaking, but also for it's music. "Let It Go" scored an Oscar, and no doubt will be up for a Grammy. But is it one of Disney's greatest songs of all time? »

Tyler Glenn talks Neon Trees' new album 'Pop Psychology' and coming out of the closet

9 hours ago

Los Angeles - Neon Trees' new album "Pop Psychology" drops today, and just a month ago, frontman Tyler Glenn came out as gay. According to Glenn, fans are going to hear a lot of intersection of the latter in the former. Speaking to me from the red carpet at the MTV Movie Awards this month, Glenn said that a lot of lyrics from "Pop Psychology" came from "therapy sessions... it feels very cathartic." His advice to those who are closeted is that "it's Ok to be scared" though "it's the best thing I've done in a long time." "I know how it feels," Glenn continued. "Tweet me if you need a friend." Watch the rest of the video above for Glenn's tips on keeping your voice and watching out for those hard-partying nights. »

Are You Ready for an 'MST3K' Comeback?

9 hours ago

Wired ran an amazing oral history of "Mystery Science Theater 3000," and almost lost in its depths was a quote from creator Joel Hodgson, who mentioned the possibility of the B-movie-mocking classic coming back in an online format with a new host.  "Hodgson: I've talked to a bunch of fans about their lives and what MST3K means to them. I'm overwhelmed by how people took to that show. It really affected them. I thought, if enough people still love it, maybe we can bring it back. Even avid viewers sometimes don't realize that every major role in the show had been swapped out over time. So in my mind, the show is built to be refreshed with new people and new ideas. It's like Heisenberg's uncertainty principle as it applies to MST3K: If it doesn't change, it's not the same show. And fortunately for us, as long as there are movies, »

Interview: 'The Originals' werewolf Chase Coleman talks Klaus, deals and howling

9 hours ago

As Oliver on "The Originals," Chase Coleman is the real deal. Okay, not a werewolf, but an honest-to-goodness Southern boy born in Alabama and raised in Louisiana. As the scheming little brother to Jackson (Nathan Parsons), Oliver's intentions aren't entirely clear yet, but we're betting they will be soon. Coleman didn't give away much in my conversation with him, but he did talk about making a deal with the devil, loyalty, and what happens when you're dead (on "The Originals," of course).  The show films in Atlanta and takes place in New Orleans. Aren't you from Louisiana? I live in Los Angeles, but I'm from Monroe, Louisiana. I lived in New York for seven years, I was in Los Angeles for a little over a year, then they flew me over to Atlanta for this. It's an eight-hour drive from home, but it's funny; it's making a full circle of my life. »

Will shows his sweet side on back-to-normal 'The Little Couple'

10 hours ago

Aw, shucks. It's been a tough season for Bill and Jen on "The Little Couple," one that's been complicated with chemo treatments and visits to the doctor. This week, the TLC show (Tues. at 10:00 p.m.) takes a lighter, happier tone with chocolates and tea parties. It's well-deserved and, yes, totally adorbs.  Will’s fourth birthday is coming up so Bill and Jen start to plan the big celebration. To show Will how he’s been growing over the past year, Bill hangs a growth chart in his room. Then, he takes Will to work with him so that Jen can spend some quality time with Zoey. While the boys are away, the girls have fun doing something Jen’s wanted to do for a long time, have a tea party! Watch a clip below:  »

Here's a clip of Stephen Colbert talking about boobs on tonight's 'Late Show'

11 hours ago

"The Late Show with RuPaul"? Now that would've been a scream. But because we live on the Planet Earth, Stephen Colbert was chosen to take over the late-night franchise from David Letterman, and he's admittedly a fantastic choice for the job. Here's a clip from his appearance on tonight's episode, during which he offers a ray of hope to boobs everywhere. Yes, you. Follow Riot on Twitter »

Disney's chairman gives new 'Star Wars' updates but still says nothing

11 hours ago

There's no real urgency to running the news-ish information revealed by Alan Horn during his appearance at the Bloomberg and Tribeca Film Festival Business Of Entertainment Breakfast (or the Btffboeb, as the kids call it), because it's basically all information that's already been released or that can be inferred. He confirmed that the recent shoot in Abu Dhabi was a second-unit for "Star Wars: Episode VII," which Jj Abrams is directing. Horn said that casting is almost complete, but it's obvious that he's learning that anything he says about "Star Wars" at all is going to become headline news around the world. Even if he says nothing, that becomes a story. "If I say 'there are no skateboards in Star Wars,' that gets headlines." Whenever they do decide to make their full casting announcement, it's going to be a nuclear-scale event on film blogs everywhere. I'm curious to see »

Is Damian the Best Part of "Mean Girls"?

11 hours ago

Daniel Franzese, the actor who played Damian in the ten-year-old teen film "Mean Girls" (which is a classic, even though it contains a few unfortunate moments), has both reveled in and resented his most famous role. Franzese wrote a cool, heartfelt letter to his old character, and he also gave an interview that sheds light on why Damian is perhaps the most resonant part of the movie. Referring to director Mark Waters, Franzese said: "Mark's whole position on Damian was that Damian probably doesn't realize he's gay yet. I mean, he knows deep down, but he's still going through puberty and figuring it all out. He hadn't dated anyone yet; he probably hasn't kissed anyone yet. And I just think that sweet spot of vulnerability was something that made that character real. That moment of a kid in high school who just didn't care what people thought about him... Anything »

Jessica Chastain to star as Marilyn Monroe in Andrew Dominik's 'Blonde'

11 hours ago

I've been fascinated by Andrew Dominik's "Blonde," based on the Joyce Carol Oates book about Marilyn Monroe, for some time. A book like that, steeped in the division between myth and reality, wading into some dark corners, seems perfectly suited for the man who brought us the most complex take on the outlaw Jesse James to date with his 2007 masterpiece "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford." Speculation has run rampant as to who would play Monroe in the film, and today, it looks like we have an answer, and that answer is Jessica Chastain. For some time, I wasn't even looking in Chastain's direction, to be perfectly honest. Naomi Watts was in the mix at one point. I was expecting any of a number of other actresses. Then Dominik let it slip in February that Chastain was at the top of his list. That happened »

'Walking Dead' showruner reflects on the darker tone of Season 4, teases Season 5

11 hours ago

(Cbr) Courtesy of Jason from The Walking Dead 'Cast, Cbr presents the transcript from his recent interview with "The Walking Dead" showrunner Scott Gimple. During the conversation, Gimple revisits his time as a fan before he became a writer on the series, explains how the second half of Season 4 was deliberately constructed to hew closer to the comic's stories than perhaps the previous season had and his happiness at swerving viewers by not giving them the big, main character death in the season finale so many had come to expect. Gimple also briefly looks ahead to the next season, explains his approach to pulling from and translating the comics to television, addresses the noticeably darker tone of the second half of last season and more. Read the interview below, and download the podcast for free. First off, I want to tell you this was my favorite season of "The Walking Dead" so far, »

Discovery to air documentary on deadly Everest avalanche

12 hours ago

New York (AP) — With its dream of covering a daredevil's attempt to jump off Mount Everest over, the Discovery network is instead making a documentary on last week's avalanche that killed more than a dozen mountain guides. Discovery President Eileen O'Neill said Tuesday the network hopes to air the film within the next few weeks. Discovery will encourage viewers to donate to a relief fund for families of the Sherpa guides killed in the disaster. Several of the Sherpas killed were helping prepare for American Joby Ogwyn's (Joe-bee Oh-gwinn) planned jump from the summit in a wingsuit. Discovery planned to show the stunt on live television on May 11. Ogwyn said Tuesday he agreed with Discovery's decision not to go forward, but hopes to jump off Everest sometime in the future.

Beyonce joins Boots on sexy "Dreams": Listen

12 hours ago

You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours: After Boots produced cuts on Beyonce’s December Surprise album, Bey returns the favor by contributing vocals to his new single, “Dreams.” She sings background on the chorus, and then steps into the spotlight around 2:40 as she takes over the lead on the sultry, slow jam. It’s a hypnotic track that goes more for an overall vibe than for ear worm appeal. Boots’ laid-back, seksi-time delivery adds to the tune’s romantic appeal, whereas Beyonce’s response lifts the R&B swayer to a much hotter place as she sighs and moans through her lyrics, even hitting Minnie Ripperton-like notes at the end. Proceeds from the sale of the song for to DayOneNY.org, a group that fights to stop teen dating violence.   »

Olivia Munn Chugs Joel McHale's Beer, Relives Trauma Of Losing A Drinking Contest

12 hours ago

Olivia Munn is a woman who knows how to play to her strengths. While talking to HitFix about the future of 'The Newsroom', Munn was interrupted when 'Community' star Joel McHale offered her a beer. And hey, when someone offers you free beer, you accept because that is true friendship right there. But things quickly went south as Munn was reminded of a previous beer chugging experience with her 'Deliver Us From Evil' director Scott Derrickson that ended in a shameful defeat. Munn grimaced at the memory, 'I lost. I couldn't even finish the beer. I don't want to talk about it, actually. I feel really ashamed.' »

(Cbr) It’s Judgment Day for the "Terminator" franchise.
