Arts critics tend to get a rough time of it in the movies. Even looking at this year's awards season hopefuls, Birdman casts a wonderfully scabrous Lindsay Duncan as a theatre critic who is determined to kill the hero's play, and Mr. Turner presents John Ruskin as a lisping, pretentious fop, a representation that has led some to take mild umbrage.
To look even further back, at Ratatouille's sneering Anton Ego, or Lady In The Water's film-savvy 'straw critic', or Theatre Of Blood's gleefully murderous tract, there's not a whole lot of love for critics in film. Any of this might give way to the preconception that critics, especially film critics, don't actually like films and that they're out of touch with both the filmmakers whose works they »
Crewmembers confirm to Burbank police they were shooting a video for a sports drink, but say Plitt made an unexpected move
Burbank police have interviewed the video team that was accompanying Gregory Plitt Jr. when he was struck and killed by a Metrolink train this past weekend, and the men are denying that they knew the Bravo “Work Out” star would be running on the tracks.
“Witnesses interviewed at the scene confirmed they were shooting a video for a sports drink, and at no point did Mr. Plitt say he would be running between the rails,” Burbank Police Department officer Joshua Kendrick told TheWrap Wednesday. »

A weekly feature in which we spotlight shining stars
The Performer | Amy Poehler
The Show | Parks and Recreation
The Episodes | “2017”/”Ron and Jammy”
The Airdate | January 13, 2015
The Performance | In the first two episodes of Parks‘ final season, Leslie finds herself going up against friend-turned-foe Ron Swanson. The problem? Ron’s competing against Leslie to obtain a whole lotta land. The other problem? Leslie has no money to offer the (already) wealthy Newports, making her chances of outbidding Ron fairly microscopic.
While this major wrinkle in Leslie’s professional life had us pitying Poehler’s alter ego, we were thrilled to »

Do: check the instructions (Wild)
This month sees the release of Wild, based on Cheryl Strayed's memoir about her solo hike along the gruelling 1,000 mile Pacific Crest Trail. Cheryl (Reese Witherspoon) certainly doesn't make it easy for herself, buying the wrong type of gas cylinder for her stove and thus being forced to subsist on a diet of "cold mush."
Don't: give up (Touching The Void)
Consider the obstacles that Joe Simpson faced during his calamitous attempt to climb Peruvian mountain Siula Grande: a broken leg; a fall into a crevasse; and zero hope of rescue after partner Simon Yates left him for dead. And yet, as recounted in classic documentary Touching The Void, Simpson gritted his teeth and dragged himself through hell to reach safety.
Do: stay calm (Life Of Pi)
Travel is unpredictable. One minute, like Indian teenager Pi (Suraj Sharma), you're emigrating to Canada aboard a freighter. »
