ABC's ‘Manhattan Love Story’ Is First Cancellation Casualty of New Season

12 hours ago

ABC's romantic comedy chronicling the courtship of two New Yorkers has been canceled. The Tuesday night sitcom, which was paired with fellow freshman sitcom “Selfie,” failed to resonate with audiences in its 8:30 timeslot. Jake McDorman and Analeigh Tipton star in the half-hour comedy as a pair of young people who are set up and then awkwardly fumble their way into a romance.

‘Camp X-Ray’ Review: Kristen Stewart Goes to Gitmo, Without a Script

16 hours ago

Stone walls do not a prison make, nor does a promising concept necessarily guarantee a satisfying film. “Camp X-Ray” has a great idea behind it — a young female soldier assigned guard duty at Guantanamo Bay forms a kinship with one of the incarcerated Muslims — but first-time writer-director Peter Sattler doesn't go anywhere interesting with that notion. Neither the soldier nor the detainee (never call them “prisoners,” we're told early, lest the the Geneva Convention apply) emerges as a particularly memorable character, and while the ongoing situation at Gitmo is a fertile topic for discussion, Sattler doesn't bring much »
