[This is a review of Castle season 6, episode 5. There will be Spoilers.]
Timing is everything. At least, it is here in the fifth episode of the Castle season 6, ‘Time Will Tell.’ The premise isn’t necessarily unique to television, but it is to the standard crime-drama procedural, which makes it all the more entertaining. The mystery within the mystery is whether or not eccentric Simon Doyle – portrayed by the delightful Chuck-alum, Joshua Gomez – is, in fact, a time-traveling, temporal anthropologist from the year 2035, sent to save the time stream from implosion.
Gomez plays the role to near perfection, spouting off a rapid stream of dialogue delivered in a way that could support Beckett (Stana ...

Review by Michael Haffner
With all the dynamic duos that have graced the screen over the years, it’s kind of shocking that it has taken this long for Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington to team-up. Especially considering the fact that both actors often juggle many of the same types of roles. An equal amount of time is given in their respective careers to more serious and dramatic fare with interludes of action intertwined. Wahlberg will do a film like the action-comedy The Other Guys and follow it up with a more serious award contender like The Fighter; much earlier he did the same with Boogie Nights followed by The Big Hit (which was anything but). Washington also will do films like The Hurricane and Flight but pepper in some more fun and explosive roles with Man On Fire and Out Of Time. Some action fans might even be shocked »

Denzel’s currently promoting his new movie, ’2 Guns,’ but he used a July 29 interview on the ‘Today’ show to defend his marriage and refute any claims that he allegedly cheated on his wife of thirty years, Pauletta.
Denzel Washington was shockingly accused of cheating on his wife, Pauletta, less than three weeks ago. While the A-list star has kept relatively quiet since then, the 2 Guns actor couldn’t escape Savannah Guthrie’s curiosity on the matter while promoting his new movie on the Today show on July 29.
Denzel Washington Defends Marriage — Refutes Cheating Claims On ‘Today’ Show
Savannah mentioned how Denzel, 58, and his wife were recently featured on the cover of the July 2013 issue of Ebony magazine. Having been married for over thirty years, the Today show co-anchor asked Denzel what their secret is.
“Do what she says,” Denzel joked.
While Denzel didn’t flat out deny cheating, his response appeared to dispel the report, »

Following are some supplemental sections featuring notable director & actor teams that did not meet the criteria for the main body of the article. Some will argue that a number of these should have been included in the primary section but keep in mind that film writing on any level, from the casual to the academic, is a game of knowledge and perception filtered through personal taste.
Other Notable Director & Actor Teams
This section is devoted to pairings where the duo worked together at least 3 times with the actor in a major role in each feature film, resulting in 1 must-see film.

In 2003, Sanaa Lathan and Denzel Washington were rumored to have had an affair during the filming of the thriller, "Out of Time." Both actors denied the affair, but that past is coming back to haunt them. Photos allegedly showing Washington kissing a woman who is not his wife are rumored to exist, leading tabloids to claim a divorce is coming for the actor.
Denzel and Pauletta Washington have been married since 1983 and have four grown children. According to a report in Star magazine, Pauletta was divorcing her husband because of ongoing cheating. A representative for Washington, however, told Gossip Cop on Wednesday that there is no coming separation or divorce.
Radar Online has reported on photos which -- if they exist -- might change that. The outlet alleges that Washington is passionately kissing another woman. No reports indicate that it is Sanaa Lathan in the photos.

Scott Weiland’s head may explode. Chester Bennington and Stone Temple Pilots plan to “hammer out some more music.” The Linkin Park frontman told Rolling Stone, “Next week we’re going back in the studio.” Bennington first fronted Stp a few weeks ago at Kroq’s Weenie Roast. They played again Thursday night at the Map/MusicCares Fund Benefit. The reconfigured group already released its first single, “Out Of Time,” and most songs will likely follow in the same way. “Everything we’re doing is on our own, so we’re just taking it one track at a time,” says Bennington, who remains in Linkin Park as »
Los Angeles -- The Stone Temple Pilots accuse former frontman Scott Weiland of misusing the band's name to further his solo career and want a judge to strip the rocker of his ability to use the group's name or songs.
A lawsuit filed Friday in Los Angeles accuses Weiland of being chronically late to concerts while the group was together and having his lawyer attempt to interfere with the airplay of the group's new single "Out of Time."
Weiland and Stone Temple Pilots parted ways in February, and the 45-year-old singer said at the time that he learned of his ouster from a statement released to the media.
The lawsuit sheds light on the band's breakup, accusing Weiland of interacting with band mates only through lawyers or managers and showing up late to the group's 2012 shows. It cites Weiland's addiction struggles and poor performances as detriments to the band's earning potential. »
After kicking Scott Weiland to the Vaseline-covered curb earlier this year, Stone Temple Pilots have enlisted Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington as a replacement. Bennington joined Stp on stage at Kroq’s Weenie Roast this weekend to perform an eight-song set—including one new tune, “Out Of Time,” you can listen to below. While it’s not explicitly clear whether Bennington will be using his yarling talents with Stp full-time, it certainly seems like he’s in the group for the long haul. He told Kroq’s Kevin And Bean that it was a “no-brainer” joining the group, and that »

Bless Me, Ultima
Directed by Carl Franklin
Written by Carl Franklin
Bless Me, Ultima seems designed for high-school English teachers desperate to spruce up their lesson plans near the end of a school year or semester. By itself, the film is sincere and earnest to a fault, and charming if too episodic and rushed, but referring to the book on which the film is based would presumably allow you to appreciate this condensed version a bit more. Bless Me, Ultima is apparently constrained by the strictures of feature-film conventions, specifically the idea that such a film must be short; the adaptation attempts to connect two disparate strands of a child’s coming of age, and as noble as the effort is, it doesn’t quite mesh.
Luke Ganalon plays Antonio, a little boy growing up in New Mexico, circa 1944. The story starts when Antonio’s parents (Benito Martinez and »

Bless This Mess: Franklin’s Period Piece Strangles Intriguing Premise
Carl Franklin returns with Bless Me, Ultima, his first feature since 2003’s Out of Time. An adaptation of a 1972 novel by Rudolfo Anaya, which is reputedly the best selling Chicano novel of all time, is actually the first novel of a trilogy, documenting the coming of age of a young boy in 1940’s New Mexico through his special relationship with an elderly family friend. Told with flourishes of magical realism depicting the mysticism and folkways of the indigenous culture of the area, this tale of a young boy’s spiritual transformation documents the vainglorious struggles of Christianity encroaching on the ways of old world pagan rituals and his subsequent disillusionment with religion. What sounds like a philosophically intriguing premise doesn’t quite translate in this bluntly conditioned film treatment that butchers a Bildungsroman into a parody of good vs. evil. »

Remakes usually strike whilst the iron is hot when it comes to popular foreign films. The Ring for example came out within four years of the release of the Japanese original and the same with The Grudge. So it’s curious that a British remake of a low-key 1996 Danish thriller should only now be making its way to release. I mean there has even already been a Hindi remake of this for god’s sake.
The release of the remake of Pusher probably has more to do with the current clout of the original’s director Nicholas Winding Refn (who produces here) thanks to the success of Drive. I haven’t seen the original Pusher so can’t comment on whether this is faithful or worthy of the first, however it’s a very different film from Drive and shouldn’t be judged against that film as it does both films a disservice. »

I had no idea going into the new Netflix original series "House of Cards" it was only the first season. I assumed, since the BBC original it was based on was only twelve episodes long, and the fact it was based on Michael Dobbs' 1989 novel, a 13-episode arc would cover the entirety of the story. So, as the minutes ticked away in the final episode I kept thinking to myself, "How are they going to wrap this up in the next ten... nine... eight... seven minutes?" The answer, obviously, is they didn't and I'd be lying if the result wasn't a bit of a letdown as the drama in the latter moments wasn't as intriguing as the political back-stabbing that led up to it, but the overall enjoyment level was quite high regardless. Involving the dirty dealings of backroom politics, the series was developed by playwright Beau Willimon ("The Ides of March »
