28 Things We Learned From the Commentary Track for ‘The Kingdom’

It’s a wild career Peter Berg has created for himself. The kid from Shocker and Aspen Extreme grew up to have an eclectic mix of directorial offerings. Everything from wicked, black comedies like Very Bad Things and damn solid action flicks like The Rundown. He’s even dabbled in the Summer blockbuster like Hancock and this Friday’s Battleship. I think that movie made Cole angry. Berg’s most important work of art came in the form of Friday Night Lights, arguably the best show in the past decade. You be the judge which side of that fence I fall on. Clear eyes. Full heart. Can’t Lose. But we can’t exactly run a Commentary Commentary on the full series run of that show. That would take too long, and there’s not enough Monster in the world to keep the writing juices flowing. So we’ll do one on The Kingdom, Berg

Californication Review: Man Pound

  • TVfanatic
As Mike Tyson once said, "everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face."

Well, Hank Moody's plan to turn down Samurai did not go as scripted, but somehow taking a punch from Peter Berg came across like a fitting moment in this week's "The Way of the Fist." Just like driving a Porsche with both headlights intact seemed out of character for Hank last episode, it didn't really feel like the season was under way until Hank got into fisticuffs with someone. 

Despite the fresh shiner, Hank still seemed off his game when he decided against telling Becca about Tyler's extra curricular activities at the club. The overly protective Hank has given Becca numerous reasons to hate him over the years, so why in this case would he care about hurting her one more time if it served to only benefit her in the end? My guess

DVD Release: Chalet Girl

  • Disc Dish
DVD Release Date: Jan. 31, 2012

Price: DVD $24.98

Studio: IFC/Mpi

Felicity Jones (l.) takes it to the Alps in Chalet Girl.

Adorable Felicity Jones (The Tempest) stars in the snowy 2011 romantic comedy film Chalet Girl.

Reminiscent of a female Aspen Extreme, the movie stars Jones as pretty tomboy Kim, a one-time champion skateboarder who now flips burgers to support herself and her dad. Opportunity comes knocking when she lands a winter-long catering job in a plush ski chalet in the Austrian Alps.

At first, Kim is overwhelmed by this bizarre new world of champagne-sipping posh people, epic mountains and waist-deep powder. But then she discovers snowboarding, and her natural talent soon sees her training for the end-of-season competition, which could win her major prize money and maybe even the affections of her boss’ handsome son Jonny (Ed Westwick, TV’s Gossip Girl).

Directed by Phil Traill (TV’s Men of a Certain Age

What I Watched, What You Watched: Installment #83

I have quite the variety of films I watched this week from the random early '90s sports flick, to the small Gus Van Sant flick, to the late '40s near-noir. In short, it was a good week of movie watching. Let's get to it...

Paranoid Park (2007) Quick Thoughts: This had been in my Instant Queue for about a year or so based on a lot of good things I'd heard about it. The less-than-90-minute runtime was the reason I finally decided to watch it as I wanted something that wasn't too long to watch one night before calling it a day. If I wanted to simplify it down to a sentence, I'd say Paranoid Park proves Gus Van Sant is a true storyteller.

The film deals with Alex (Gabe Nevins), a skateboarder that finds himself working out just what he should do following the accidental death of a security guard.

Can We Please See Bruce Campbell v. Paul Gross?

Can We Please See Bruce Campbell v. Paul Gross?
The other day I started the Inglorious Basterds Blu-ray at a friends place and was greeted by an extra-hairy, gunslinging Paul Gross in a trailer for the upcoming Canadian comedy Gunless.* It's the story of -- get this -- a gunslinger who calls out a surly blacksmith (played by Tyler Mane, the new Michael Myers), only to find out that the town doesn't have one working pistol for the showdown. I laughed, put it on my mental movie to-do list, and carried on. But then I watched it again over at Quiet Earth (embedded after the jump), and found myself wondering: When will we get a Paul Gross v. Bruce Campbell showdown?

You know Gross ... right? No? He's the cutie T.J. Burke from Aspen Extreme. The red-clad mountie in Due South. Chris Cutter in Men with Brooms. The writer, director, and star of the 2008 Wwi war movie Passchendaele. And if you missed all that,
