TV Review: ‘Deep State’ on Epix

TV Review: ‘Deep State’ on Epix
Is there a hit from the past decade more widely imitated than “Homeland”? Perhaps that’s because the spy serial’s action-packed appeal seems easily replicable, even without a character as indelible as Carrie Mathison. Building relatable characters is hard, but ratcheting up tension is easy. Right?

Epix’s new series “Deep State” creates tense situations that don’t quite hit home — because, artfully directed and grimace-inducingly violent as those situations may be, they’re happening to people from whom we feel a strange remove. On “Deep State,” Mark Strong’s Max Easton is called back into the field as an MI6 agent to course-correct a failing mission in the Middle East. In so doing, he’s called away from his bucolic family life in France — including a wife who knows less than she might and who takes it upon herself to learn what her husband’s been up to.

TVLine Items: It's Always Sunny Trailer, Star Wars Cast to Visit Conan and More

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia has gone retro with its latest trailer, and it’s, like, totally mondo.

This minute-long video teases the comedy’s upcoming 11th season by spoofing ’80s ski movies, and much like a nightclub that Saturday Night Live‘s Stefon would promote, it’s got everything, including a cheesy soundtrack, Danny DeVito’s Frank as a dastardly villain and that grainy VHS look we all know and love.

Who Is Alexandra Hedison, Jodie Foster's New Wife?

It was confirmed yesterday that Jodie Foster married her girlfriend Alexandra Hedison is a private ceremony over the weekend.

Who Is Alexandra Hedison?

While Foster, 51, has been a household name since her teens, Hedison, who previously dated talk show host Ellen DeGeneres for four years, is significantly less well-known.

Hedison, 44, who was born and raised in Los Angeles, works primarily as a photographer, taking pictures of landscapes and architecture. Her work has been shown in L.A., New York City and London.

With her father, David Hedison, having worked successfully as an actor for decades, including the role of Felix Leiter in a pair of James Bond films, Hedison embarked on a career in the industry as well. She appeared in both Melrose Place and Nash Bridges, but she’s perhaps best known for her recurring role on The L World.

The Children (2008) Review

Reviewed by Chris Wright, MoreHorror.com

Directed By: Tom Shankland

Written By: Tom Shankland & Paul Andrew Williams

Starring: Hannah Tointon (Casey), Eva Birthistle (Elaine), Stephen Campbell Moore (Jonah) , Eva Sayer (Miranda), William Howes( Paulie), Rachel Shelley (Chloe), Jeremy Sheffield (Robbie), Jake Hathaway (Nicky), Raffiella Brooks (Leah)

Nothing says Christmas horror like spreading Yule tide cheer with some murderous children! I have to admit, there have been a good number of “killer kids” done in horror so I didn’t expect much with this movie seeing as I hadn’t even heard of it until recently. Thankfully, I was proven wrong and loved this movie quite a bit. This British horror film was only given a straight to video release in America despite being given a theatrical release in the UK.

The plot is a small group of family and friends travel to a country home in an isolated snowy region for their Christmas get together.

Sarah Michelle Gellar is returning to the small screen. Gellar is set to star in the CBS pilot The Crazy Ones, alongside comedian Robin Williams. Gellar would play Williams’s daughter, Sydney Roberts, in the half hour comedy. But the question remains, will her character stab vampires with a stake?

Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz lit up the red carpet (and the Yellow Brick Road) at the world premiere of Oz: The Great and Powerful at the El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles, CA.

"Once Upon a Time" recap: "The Crocodile" (2.4)

Tags: Once Upon a Time recapsOnce Upon A TimeRachel ShelleyIMDb

Previously on Once Upon A Time, Belle was Rumpelstiltskin's prisoner but then she fell in love with him and it was gross. That is all.

This episode was called "The Crocodile," but really it should have been called "Where is Everyone?" I'm not sure where they got off having an entire episode without Emma Or Regina, but they did it. Luckily they threw in Rachel Shelley to offset the male-to-hot-female ratio a little bit and gave Ruby some screentime.

Right out of the gate, Belle is having nightmares about shiny gold Rumpelstiltskin and his mean streak. She realizes Gold isn't in the bed with her (thank goodness) and goes to see where he went. He is in the basement, spinning straw into gold, and I'm like "That makes sense," but Belle is perplexed since that's not her fairytale.

Meet Captain Hook In New 'Once Upon A Time' Previews

Meet Captain Hook In New 'Once Upon A Time' Previews
This Sunday's episode of "Once Upon a Time" (Sun., Oct. 21 at 8 p.m. Et on ABC) will introduce us to another legendary character from the Disney pantheon: Captain Hook.

But this iteration of the classic J. M. Barrie character seems less cowardly crocodile-hater (although the episode is called "The Crocodile") and more Captain Jack Sparrow, thanks to the casting of dashing Colin O'Donoghue. And, as you might notice in the preview clips below, he's also missing the very appendage that gives him that memorable name -- which may explain why Hook is going by Killian Jones when we first meet him. Seems like we've got ourselves a good ol' fashioned origin story,

In the first clip, we see Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) having a small domestic dispute with his wife Milah (Rachel Shelley) over her unsavory choice of drinking company, and get our first glimpse of O'Donoghue's charming Captain.

Obviously, said confrontation doesn't go so well,

Once Upon a Time Sneak Peek: Can Rumple Save His Wife From Captain Hook?
Once Upon a Time‘s Rumpelstiltskin will have his hands full during the Oct. 21 episode (ABC, 8/7c) when his two loves get caught up in some trouble. While Belle’s walking right into a dangerous situation, things in fairytale land aren’t any calmer for Rumple — as you’ll see in the following sneak peek — as his wife, Milah (Rachel Shelley), crosses paths with Captain Hook (new series regular Colin O’Donoghue).

Can Rumple save his spouse before she, too, gets nabbed by a band of pirates?

'Once Upon a Time': Meet Rumpel's wife Milah, plus episode 5 'The Doctor' details

We've got some more fun tidbits from the world of "Once Upon a Time," fans. First off, more pictures have been released from episode 4, titled "The Crocodile," which airs Sunday, Oct 21. Above, meet Milah, wife to Rumpelstiltskin and mother to Bae (played by Rachel Shelley of "The L Word").

Below, she seems to be hanging out with Captain Hook (Colin O'Donoghue) and does not appear to be very happy with Rumpel. Imagine that.

Meanwhile, Belle looks like maybe she's seeking advice or at least a friendly ear from Ruby at the diner and David goes to work in the mines -- woo woo.

Lagaan - Movie Review

'Lagaan' (2001)

Starring Aamir Khan, Gracy Singh, Rachel Shelley, Paul Blackthorne

Many Indian films these days try to cater to Western sensibilities in order to gain critical acclaim abroad and boost foreign box office—and these attempts usually fail. Why, then, did an unabashedly Bollywood film like 'Lagaan'—with its effusive melodrama, six musical numbers, and nearly four-hour running time—successfully capture the attention of the West and even snag an Academy Award nomination for Best Foreign Language Film?

Many Americans, including this reviewer, had never even heard of Bollywood until 'Lagaan' came along. It's only the third Hindi-language film in history to get an Oscar nod—'Mother India' (1957) and 'Salaam Bombay' (1988) being the other two. 'Lagaan' was helmed by the talented Ashutosh Gowariker, who later directed the award-winning 'Swades' (2004) and 'Jodhaa Akbar' (2008), but 'Lagaan' is known as Aamir Khan's baby.

Lagaan, produced by AAmir Khan and Written and Directed by Ashutosh Cowariker and with lyrics by Javed Akhtar and music by A.R.

One Hit, All Else Miss?
May 17, 2010: It all started with Helen grooving to the catchy song ‘Mera Naam Chin Chin Chu…’ and after that there was no end to it. Helen sure did make a niche for herself in the fickle Bollywood industry, but what about the rest? Every year there are foreign imports, who make it huge with one film, and vanish into thin air. So just what goes wrong?! Where do they disappear, when they hit the jackpot?

Great LezBritain: The Top 10 British Ladies We Wish Were Gay, But Aren’t (As Far As We Know)

Thanks to popular British film and television, there is a perception outside Britain that roaming amidst our green fields and cobbled streets are delicate, silver-spooned beauties and post-Henry Eliza Doolittles. While we are on record as being rather fond of the corset — for two reasons — in reality, there is a much more diverse bunch of British ladies turning heads. And a high proportion of them are swigging pints, not tea.

So we are dedicating this column to the introduction and celebration of some of today's most desirable ladies in dear old Blighty. And because we are gripped by UK election fever, we decided to be democratic about it and sent a Twat out a few days ago asking you to nominate the UK ladies you wish were of a lesbian persuasion.

It would be far too challenging a task to look at this with any deep meaning — we'd have to flick through historical archives,
