Gotham Season 1, Episode 10: “Lovecraft”
Written by Rebecca Dameron
Directed by Guy Ferland
Airs Mondays at 8pm Et on Fox
The mid season finale of Gotham hits the ground running, with Bruce and Cat being pursued by deadly assassins, which sets in motion a tour through the shadowy spots of Gotham for Bruce, with Cat as his guide. It’s always fun to see the kids together, and this episode puts them on Cat’s turf, which is vital for Bruce to see firsthand if he’s to grow into the hero Gotham needs. The reason they are on the run is because Gordon screwed up by putting his faith in Harvey Dent, who wants what Gordon wants, which is to take down the bad elements of Gotham. But Dent is willing to risk anything or anyone to reach that goal.
This episode concludes the arc of Gordon’s reckless mission against the corrupt system, »

A decade after Lost first came to our screens, Gem goes back to the island...
Each Us TV season brings with it a crop of new shows: some outstanding, some memorably awful. 2004/2005, though, was a little different from most. This was the year in which we watched Gregory House solve his first medical mystery and were introduced to those notorious housewives of Wisteria Lane,while Battlestar Galactica brought the Cylons back to our screens after decades spent in sci-fi oblivion.
This unusually impressive bunch dominated the schedules for years, attracted reams of critical and fan commentary, and are still remembered with varying degrees of fondness. However, one of the series to air for the first time that season was a different proposition entirely. Mention its famously divisive ending online and you’ll unleash a torrent of derision, nostalgia and passionate debate. Ask fans to explain its myriad mysteries, and, for the most part, »
It's a shock to go back and watch "Midnight Cowboy" 45 years after its debut (on May 25, 1969) and see how raw and otherworldly it looks. After all, the X-rated Best Picture Oscar-winner has been so thoroughly assimilated into American pop culture that even kiddie entertainments like the Muppets have copied from it.
The tale of the unlikely friendship between naïve Texas gigolo Joe Buck (Jon Voight) and frail Bronx con man Enrico "Ratso" Rizzo (Dustin Hoffman), "Midnight Cowboy" was initially considered so risqué that it's the only X-rated movie ever to win the Academy's top prize (though after it won, the ratings board reconsidered and gave the film an R). Still, the film featured two lead performances and a few individual scenes that were so iconic that homages (and parodies) have popped up virtually everywhere. (Most often imitated is the scene where Ratso, limping across a busy Manhattan street, is nearly »

I just checked it out, and thought it was highly entertaining with plenty of hardcore violence,action,drama, major twists, and more. The movie stars: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Olivia Williams, Mireille Enos, Sam Worthington, Harold Perrineau, Terrence Howard, Joe Manganiello, Max Martini, and Josh Holloway. In the new flick, an elite DEA task force, consisting of characters: John 'Breacher' Wharton (Arnold Schwarzenegger),James 'Monster' Murray (Sam Worthington), Joe 'Grinder' Phillips (Joe Manganiello), Eddie 'Neck' Jordan (Josh Holloway), Julius 'Sugar' Edmonds (Terrence Howard), Tom 'Pyro' Roberts (Max Martini), Bryce 'Tripod' McNeely (Kevin Vance), 'Smoke' Jennings (Kevin Vance), and Lizzy Murray (Mireille Enos), bust into a drug cartel safe house to acquire a ton of dough that came out to be $10 million dollars before they ran out of time to get the rest. However, upon completion of the mission, »
Producers for the film, which will be released later this year, are Wang, Richard Wong and Jonathan Bing. The film focuses on Cecilia Chiang, touted as introducing America to authentic Chinese food with the opening of her restaurant The Mandarin in 1961 in San Francisco.
“We’re absolutely thrilled to be able to bring Wayne’s deeply touching and wonderfully delicious portrait to audiences,” said Oscilloscope’s Dan Berger and David Laub said, “It’s a late Christmas gift to O-Scope – and what better way for two Jewish boys to celebrate Christmas than with Chinese food?”
