4 New Archer Season 3 Teasers

You’ve heard the expression, what would Jesus do. Well, its time to stop and consider what might Archer do. Yes, that dashing scoundrel who adores Mr. Burt Reynolds has some pearls of wisdom to share. If you have ever wondered what Archer would do on New Year’s Eve, or how he might handle an office romance, or if whether or not the man of mystery can offer his fellow man any fashion advice, you, my friend, are about to learn those answers and more in today’s teasers promoting the FX animated series.

The International Secret Intelligence Service agent is embroiled in his third season on the airwaves. Sterling Malory Archer, codename Duchess, continues to be voiced by Mr. H. Jon Benjamin. So far this season, Archer has tried his hand at becoming a Pirate King, but still, the best is yet to come. »

Clip joint: Moustaches

23 November 2011 7:02 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

We're three-quarters through Movember, well into the styling period for any properly moustached gentleman. What movie-based style will you pick?

It's that time of year again, when the weather turns cold and normally clean-shaven men start scratching their upper lip as they try to grow the best moustache possible for a good cause. It's Movember!

Unfortunately there are some men whose efforts are classified more as extreme stubble than a moustache, but for those now successfully hairy there's a decision to make: what kind of 'tache style should you go for? Handlebar or Regent? Poirot or Einstein?

Fortunately there's always the silver screen to help you along, with dozens of different varieties to choose from. Below are some of the greatest moustaches in film. Take your pick! And then rustle up your own suggestions. Just don't complain to us if all you've got is a 5 o'clock shadow.

Dexter 6.04 "A Horse of a Different Color" Review

23 October 2011 11:18 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Dexter season 6 returns to carve up a fourth outing with this week’s “A Horse of a Different Color,” as our favorite serial killer studies the patterns of the gruesome “Doomsday Killer,” and faces a crisis of faith when young Harrison takes ill.  With Dexter season 6’s main villains out in the open, the story ramps up full force but faces a few unnecessary distractions.

Last week’s “Smokey and the Bandit” made for a fun standalone episode with a shocking twist, but still felt like a diversion from the main storyline.  “A Horse of a Different Color” returns to the main narrative, but creates some tangential loose ends in a different way.  Too many instances during “A Horse of a Different Color” had me asking “who are these people, and why do I care?”

Laguerta still has nothing to do other than bizarrely coach Deb through her old job, »

Dexter Season 6 Episode 3 Rundown: Who is the Mysterious Ryan Chambers?

17 October 2011 9:04 AM, PDT | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

Thus far, Dexter Season 6 has been a refreshing return to the glory days of serial killing. However, last night’s episode, “Smokey and the Bandit”, bordered on mediocre. One of the potentially better scenes that would have shown off the villainy of Travis (Colin Hanks) and Professor Gellar (Edward James Olmos) was cut short and lost its critical effect. Quinn’s (Desmond Harrington) return to being a womanizing douche lacks intrigue, while guest-star Ryan Chambers (Brea Grant) is shaping up to be the most mysterious character to look out for. “Smokey and the Bandit” focused on bringing to light Dexter Morgan’s (Michael C. Hall) early motivations for becoming a serial killer. The latest homicide in Miami was a working girl with a broken tooth. While Miami Metro thinks this is an arbitrary killer, Dexter digs into his childhood scrapbook and brings out a clipping about a Tooth Fairy Killer. »

TV Recap: 'Dexter' Episode 603 - 'Smokey and the Bandit'

Miami Homicide gets called to investigate a dead hooker who was either beaten or strangled to death. Dexter sees the woman's chipped lateral incisor. Masuka says it probably broke during the struggle, but Dexter has his own suspicions. He suspects this is the work of the Tooth Fairy, a serial killer who was active in the 1970s in Oregon. He killed prostitutes and took their lateral incisors as a trophy, but was never caught. The Tooth Fairy was one of his childhood obsessions. Of course, if the Tooth Fairy was back, he »

Dexter 6.03 "Smokey and the Bandit" Review

16 October 2011 11:42 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Dexter season 6 returns to slice up a third outing with this week’s “Smokey and the Bandit,” as our favorite serial killer hunts down one of his childhood inspirations and Deb settles into the role of the Miami Metro Lieutenant.  Those looking for progress in the major storylines this season won’t find much to go on, but even stand-alone Dexter has something to offer, if only an amusing distraction.

I mentioned in my review of the premiere that first and foremost about Dexter’s sixth season was a renewed sense of energy and fun, something “Smokey and the Bandit” certainly runs with as we watch Dexter coddling retiree Walter Kenney to prove his identity as legendary serial killer the “Tooth Fairy.”  There’s plenty of humor to be mined from Dexter partnered with a grumpy old pervert, but I kept coming back to the notion that the Tooth Fairy »

Dexter Review: A Tale of Three Stories

16 October 2011 8:00 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Through three episodes of Dexter this season, it feels as though I'm watching three different shows.

In the first, Debra Morgan is the new, young, driven police lieutenant who fights with her ex-boyfriend and struggles to both please her boss and remain independent from her boss. I actually find myself enjoying this angle, as Laguerta just sucks and I'm rooting for Deb to show her up.

In the second, two shady characters are obsessed with religion in some dangerously fanatical manner. One is a professor, the other his loyal, yet somewhat hesitant student/protege and, together, they take extreme measures to... re-create deaths from the bible? Issue a warning of the coming Apocalypse?

It's unclear at the moment, but that final image was certainly haunting and I remain a fan of both Colin Hanks and Edward James Olmos. Their storyline just feels a bit heavy-handed so far.

Finally, in the third, »

Dexter Season 6 Episode 63 'Smokey and the Bandit' Preview

16 October 2011 3:59 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

This season of Dexter has been slow to unfold as it reaches the one-quarter completed mark after this evening's entry, 'Smokey and the Bandit.' By its conclusion, Travis (Colin Hanks) and Professor Gellar (Edward James Olmos) will make a truly bizarre move certain to get everyone's attention. And Deb will follow her gut when selecting who takes her place post-promotion.

This preview kicks off with a clip featuring Travis and a man he's holding in captivity. The man wants to be freed obviously. Travis, however, wants the man to simply repent. Even though the man appears to do so, Travis isn't buying it.

The reason for Travis' demands will be made clear by the episode's conclusion. It's definitely worth the wait.

In the second clip we're introduced to the memory of the "Tooth Fairy," a serial killer who Dexter tracked as a young adult and kept a scrapbook about. »

TV Fanatic Face-Off: Will Hart of Dixie Succeed?

3 October 2011 8:28 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Following a moderately successful series premiere, the jury remains out on Hart of Dixie. It features a great cast, but how fresh is the material? How accurate are the stereotypes? How hilarious is Levon Hayes?

Below, Editor-in-Chief Matt Richenthal and Senior Staff Writer Jim Garner let readers in on their recent instant messenger discussion of these topics, as they dissect Hart of Dixie and its chances for survival...

Jim: First impression?

Matt: It treaded in every conceivable southern stereotype and really didn't deliver anything we haven't seen before - Zoe took a rickety old bus down to a small southern town, whose only bus stop was miles Outside of town for some reason - but, hey, I love the cast!

Jim: Ok, I'm from the south, and honestly, the bus stops can be outside of town (but usually at a building). While it did tread across many stereotypes, it also »

First Impressions: Dexter Season 6

29 September 2011 5:00 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

By the end of Season 5 of Showtime's "Dexter", a lot of the series' fans were a bit put off by the repetitivenes of the storyline with little to no progression on the part of a majority of the characters. I mean, really, how many times can Dexter "almost" get caught? It all felt stagnant and stale. Not to mention that Papa Harry was mostly Mia when Dex needed him most. Well, after watching the first three episodes of Season 6, we're going to go out on a limb here and say that things have indeed changed, definitely for the better.

The episodes, entitled "Those Kinds of Things", "Once Upon a Time…", and "Smokey and the Bandit", jump ahead about a year since we left off in Season 5. Dexter is bonding with Harrison, has hired Batista's sister as his new nanny, and is about to attend his high school reunion. Of course »

Our five favorite movie wheelmen

15 September 2011 11:15 PM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

I don't know how much real world demand there is for wheelmen, but it's a burgeoning field in the movies. It seems like there's someone always in the movies who needs a dangerous package transported or a steady-nerved getaway driver for a heist. That's certainly true this week, thanks to a movie featuring a new, and excellent movie wheelman: Ryan Gosling's Driver from Nicolas Winding Refn's "Drive."

In honor of Gosling's hammer-wielding, tire-squealing performance, we decided this was the perfect time to pick our five favorite wheelmen in movie history. Our qualifications for potential candidates were simple. They had to make their living as a driver -- so car thieves were out. They had to be willing to take dirty or illegal jobs -- so professional truckers were gone too. And they couldn't actually participate in the heists themselves. As Gosling's Driver says, "I don't sit in while »

[Interview] Director John Landis on ‘Burke and Hare’

7 September 2011 8:12 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

When given the opportunity to interview John Landis, I had to take it. After all, this is a man whose films I’ve grown up on (The Blues Brothers may very well be my most-watched movie of all time), so the idea of talking to him was pretty thrilling. Thankfully, it turns out that he’s a great conversationalist.

While we started off with his latest project, Burke and Hare, the discussion soon veered toward the creative state of Hollywood, as well as what he has planned next. There are many other places we could have gone, but I think that the ensuing talk was both informative and enlightening.

Without further ado:

How did this material get into your hands?

John Landis: I was visiting my friend, Gurinder Chadha, who is an English director. Do you know Gurinder?

I don’t know if I do.

You know a movie called Bend It Like Beckham? »

6 September 2011 3:11 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Shark Night 3D North American box-office actuals have been released for the Sept. 2-5, 2011, Labor Day weekend. Tate Taylor's The Help easily topped the slow holiday weekend, grossing $19.88 million according to Box Office Mojo. That's nearly $1 million more than the studio's original $19m estimate. As mentioned in a previous box-office post, The Help is the first movie since Christopher Nolan-Leonardo DiCaprio's summer 2010 sci-fier Inception to top the North American box-office chart for three consecutive weekends. The Help, by now an all-but-assured Best Picture Oscar and SAG Award for Best Cast contender, features Emma Stone, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Jessica Chastain, Bryce Dallas Howard, Sissy Spacek, Mary Steenburgen, Allison Janney, Cicely Tyson, Chris Lowell, and Mike Vogel.

Burt Reynolds denies plastic surgery rumors; 'I was never lifted' he tells Ok! magazine

31 August 2011 5:09 PM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Burt Reynolds, the man who personified machismo in such 1970s films as "Smokey and the Bandit" and "The Longest Yard," has denied ever going under the knife to maintain his look.

The 75-year-old actor tells Ok! Magazine his face is untouched. "I was never lifted. I would not have a problem with the truth, but I inherited my smooth skin from my father."

The actor, who was nominated for an Oscar for "Boogie Nights," did admit that too many on-screen fisticuffs required him to get his eyes tweaked.

"In the mid '80s, after some fights in a film, I had to have my eyes done," he says. "For one, I almost went blind because I got black powder in my eye. Also I had terrible sacks under my eyes from the many fist fights. My eyes were not in form any more. I had that corrected."

Reynolds made no mention of his ever-evolving hairline. »
