'Downward Dog': TV Review

I like to imagine that FX's Wilfred caused great tumult among the dog lobby. I'm referring to the advocacy lobby of dogs, not just the lobby on behalf of dogs and certainly not to the lobby at the Hotel for Dogs, which is quite the pickup scene.

There's no way that dogs liked the way they were presented on Wilfred, all destructive id and baser instincts. Plus, the main character was totally being played in dog-face, which I hear is pretty offensive if you know its history. I suspect it also caused great consternation that Elijah Wood's character was able...

IndieWire Pick: “The Night Of” (Series Finale) (8/28)

HBO’s well-received limited series “The Night Of” will wrap up its eight-part whodunnit in late August. Steve Zaillian’s gritty drama, which examines a man’s fate after he wakes up charged with the murder of a relative stranger, debuted to rave reviews from critics and audiences. IndieWire’s Ben Travers writes, “By actively engaging on personal and political levels, Zaillian sucks the viewer into a nightmare scenario wholly dependent on two verdicts: first, whether or not Naz is found guilty, but also if he really did it.” Here’s hoping the series can maintain its slow burn thrills all the way to the end.

Revolution Buys George Clooney’s ‘Up in the Air’

Revolution Studios has acquired the Cold Spring Pictures motion picture library, which includes George Clooney’s “Up in the Air.”

Cold Spring Pictures was created in 2006 as a production facility to co-finance movies produced by Ivan Reitman and Tom Pollock’s the Montecito Picture Company. Paramount retains 50% ownership of the titles, which include “Disturbia,” “Beer Pong,” “Hotel for Dogs,” “Post Grad” and “Hitchcock.”

See How Much the "Entourage" Cast Has Changed Since the Show's Premiere

  • TooFab
It's hard to believe it's been 11 years since we first met big screen heartthrob Vincent Chase (Adrien Grenier) and his boys, Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillon), Eric "E" Murphy (Kevin Connolly) and Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) on HBO's "Entourage." And, who can forget our favorite hot-headed agent, Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven)?! The eight-season series was filled to the brim with celebrity cameos, hot Hollywood nightclubs and a whole lot of partying -- and we loved every minute of it. While we finally get to see these boys back together on-screen in the "Entourage" movie on June 5, toofab is taking a look at what Vinny and his pack-mates have been up to since the show premiered over a decade ago in 2004. Grenier was probably best known for starring in the movie "Drive Me Crazy" before he nabbed his "Entourage" role. He later co-starred with Anne Hathaway in "The Devil Wears Prada" and directed two documentaries,

Emma Roberts Joins For The Dogs

Emma Roberts Joins For The Dogs
The last time Emma Roberts joined something with a canine title we got Hotel For Dogs. Hopefully For The Dogs, an action thriller that has Sam Worthington starring and Jonathan Mostow directing, will be a little heavier on the gunplay and a little lighter on the family bonding over cute pups.Writer Oren Moverman has adapted Kevin Wignall’s novel into a script that finds Worthington as a solitary assassin who agrees to help a young woman (Roberts) exact revenge on those who murdered her parents and younger brother. His guidance unleashes events that ultimately stoke her thirst for vengeance while he desperately seeks peace and absolution. We’re getting definite Leon vibes here, though it’s too early to compare the two.For The Dogs has been through a few fluctuations as it traverses development limbo: Philip Noyce was originally aboard to direct Worthington before Mostow replaced him in August last year.

'Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters' (2013) Movie Review

I saw 2010's Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, but for the life of me I don't remember what happens and after watching Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, I still can't piece the entirety of the first film together. However, the only important details the audience seems to need to know are 1.) Percy Jackson (Logan Lerman) is the demigod son of Poseidon; 2.) Percy did something great in the first film by catching the Lightning Thief; and 3.) Luke (Jake Abel), the son of Hermes, is a bad guy. If there's more to know, I'm sorry but I'm at a loss, not that it really matters. I could read my review of the first film as a refresher, but that feels like cheating... sort of like how the studio is cheating anyone that pays to see this mess. An adaptation of Rick Riordan's second Percy Jackson book, this time around

'Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters' Review: The Silly, All-Ages Fun of an Old Steve Reeves 'Hercules' Movie
Ray Harryhausen recently passed away, but the kind of quasi-mythological adventure for which the animation legend created skeleton armies and horrifying harpies is alive and well in "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters." Sure, the effects are all computer-generated now, but this franchise delivers the kind of silly, all-ages fun that's appeared far too infrequently on the big screen since 1950s "Hercules" star Steve Reeves hung up his toga. For this second in a series of films based on the novels by Rick Riordan, director Thor Freudenthal ("Hotel for Dogs," "Diary of a

Emma Roberts In ‘We’re The Millers’ Character Poster

Emma Roberts; the actress formerly known as ‘Julia Roberts’ Niece’, is gearing up for her first full-on adult comedic turn in the hilarious looking We’Re The Millers. In which a fake family, made up of drug dealers, strippers and a couple of young degenerates, get together to move some pot across the Mexican border and make some money. Roberts may still be young, but she’s already aimed for a more diverse career than her famous aunt, with roles in horror Scream 4, British action gangster film 4.3.2.1. and now this. She’s a long way from her turns in Nancy Drew, Aquamarine, Wildchild, and Hotel For Dogs (maybe I’ve seen too many Emma Roberts films, and by “seen” I mean “own”). Still, she’s got a long way to go to match her father, the legendary Eric Roberts, who takes on everything from Spun, to The Dark Knight,
