9 Oscars Winners Who Don't Hold Up to the Test of Time

9 Oscars Winners Who Don't Hold Up to the Test of Time
Just because a movie or a celebrity wins an Oscar, that doesn't mean the win was deserved. While the Academy Awards are seen as the capstone to awards season -- and one of the highest honors in the business -- we all know that stars and movies get snubbed or overlooked all the time.

What's worse is when we look back at what did win, and shake our heads in confusion and disbelief. So, with the 89th Academy Awards just around the corner, let's take a look back over the show's illustrious history at a few times the Academy voters clearly made a mistake.

Castle season 8 episode 19 review: Dead Again

Castle delivers another head-scratching episode out of left-field in this week's Dead Again...

This review contains spoilers.

8.19 Dead Again

It feels like, only a couple of weeks ago, I was reviewing this same episode. Or at least its type. In Death Wish, we had Castle going off on a flight of fancy over Aladdin’s lamp, and I was pointing out that, every once in a while, the writers on Castle appear to lose their collective minds by penning an episode in which one of Rick’s fantasies crosses the line from a playful-but-not-serious bit of whimsy to a fullblown delusion.

The nice thing about Death Wish, and perhaps I should have pointed it out at the time, is that, in the end, while Castle’s ridiculous theory is never entirely proven to be false—after all, maybe Genevieve really is a genie and Mr. X her

Castle season 8 episode 18 review: Backstabber

Castle devotes an entire season 8 episode to developing the character of Hayley...

This review contains spoilers.

8.18 Backstabber

This week, Hayley was solidly inducted into the ranks of Castle regulars by getting an episode about her. The purpose of these kinds of episodes is to give us background and real texture to the characters that surround Beckett and Castle. They explain why these characters are who they are—because while Castle has a fine cast, it’s not really an ensemble show. Rick and Kate get character development of one kind or another in almost every episode. But it’s hard to really learn much about the secondary characters because of their limited time on-screen.

Thus we've had episodes about all of our regulars, like the one about Kevin Ryan’s past as an undercover cop that highlights for us where the steel that he occasionally shows in dealing with suspects comes from.

Castle season 8 episode 17 review: Death Wish

Rick goes off the fantasy deep-end in this week's left-field Aladdin-themed episode of Castle...

This review contains spoilers.

8.17 Death Wish

If last week’s episode, Heartbreaker, was an excellent example of one of my favorite types of Castle episodes, then this week’s Death Wish, is one of my least favorite. And that’s because it invalidates an important part of who Rick Castle is.

Sometimes, it’s hard to tell where Nathan Fillion ends and Rick Castle begins. And that’s been entirely intentional. The role of Castle was designed, let’s face it, to take the larger-than-geek-life charisma of Fillion and deliver it to a more mainstream audience without diminishing what we geeks love about Nathan.

Whether you’ve seen him on a stage at a panel, giving an interview, or had an autograph or photograph session with Fillion, you’re likely to report the

Castle's talented actors continue to be its best draw, as this Esposito-focused episode shows...

This review contains spoilers.

8.16 Heartbreaker

Heartbreaker is one of my favorite kinds of Castle episodes—if you ignore the first two minutes.

As I have made it abundantly clear in my reviews, the strength of this show is its actors. Time and again, they save episodes that would otherwise be damned by uneven writing and misjudged instincts on the part of the new showrunners. Their individual skills and the chemistry they exude as a group is what keeps us holding on even when it seems like the show is spiralling downward.

So any episode which tightly focuses in on one of their characters is almost always a joy to watch, and Heartbreaker, which put Javier Esposito in the limelight, is no exception.

It seems that nine years ago—or not long before we met Esposito,

Castle and Beckett's relationship remaining a secret is a stretch too far in the latest episode of Castle...

This review contains spoilers.

8.15 Fidelis Ad Mortem

The term “deconstruction” tends to be one that confuses a lot of people and with good reason. If you look at the word itself, you might think, as most people do, that it means to pull something apart piece by piece—to analyse it, really.

When theorists use the term, however, they are talking about something else. When they throw it out there, they aren’t really talking about what the reader or viewer is doing when they look at a text, but what the text does to itself. Jacques Derrida, who coined the term, spent forty years of his life trying to define it, so it’s complex, but Richard Rorty sums it up nicely when he said, that it is

Castle enacts another Firefly reunion as Summer Glau appears in season 8 of the Nathan Fillion-led detective show...

8.13 And Justice For All & 8.14 The G.D.S.

I'm playing a little catch-up this week, after a bout of flu, and Castle had two interesting if flawed episodes to get me through at least some of the Nyquil-infused twilight.

And Justice For All is one of the sub-genres of Castle that I both love and hate. As an American, I appreciate anytime a show that doesn’t have to takes on a political issue and does something enlightening with it. And a few months ago, the topic of illegal immigrants being extorted to avoid deportation, and a sitting judge making kickbacks off funnelling those immigrants who cannot afford the payments into the private prison industry, was one that might have seemed, in my country, like

Castle, “And Justice for All” Does a Slithery Two-Step Dance

Castle season 8 episode 13 is an episode that goes two steps forward and then takes one step back. Yes, there are some truly positive things in it (Caskett!) – and then there’s stuff that is more of the same problems that have been going on all season. What’s it all add up to…that’s for the viewer to decide.

For those viewers hoping for more focus on writer Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) and NYPD Captain Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) Castle, “And Justice for All” looks scary – and not in a good way. Last week’s episode may have those viewers the idea that the show was going to try to move back towards its original premises of a writer and his muse. This week the sneak peeks let us know this is absolutely not the case. Does that mean it’s not worth watching? That’s depends on why you watch Castle.

As seen in this sneak peek from Monday’s episode (ABC, 10/9c), Alexis and Hayley (played by Molly Quinn and Toks Olagundye) have drummed up tons of investigative work, to be sure, but none of the kind that piques the interest of their boss man (Nathan Fillion).

Review: Justice League Unlimited: The Complete Series

  • Comicmix
Every time a four-color property moves from print to other media, changes are made, mostly a result of the different medium being employed. Sometimes the changes stagger the imagination while others are subtle and acceptable. Warner Animation has more often than not been incredibly faithful to the source material, resulting in some of the most satisfying comics-to-screen adaptations.

As a result, the anticipation for a Blu-ray release of the excellent Justice League Unlimited has been high and finally, last week, Warner Archive released the show in a three-disc collection. The series, which ran July 31, 2004 – May 13, 2006, is the follow-up to the equally wonderful Justice League.

While the original series focused on the traditional original members of the Jla, the new series expanded its roster to just about every hero from the DC Universe. For many viewers, it was the first time they were exposed to many of these colorful characters. For we fanboys,

Al Pacino’s Top Ten performances to date

More or less ever since winning an Oscar for Best Actor in Scent of a Woman, Al Pacino has seen less than his fair share of top notch roles. Luckily though, that drought ends this week with David Gordon Green’s Manglehorn, which features Pacino doing easily his best work in a long time. As such, I wanted to rank his best work to date, covering both his newest film as well as some of his most exciting early roles. Obviously, someone like Pacino has more than ten great performances under his belt, but these are what make up my personal list. I hope you enjoy! Here now are what I consider to be Pacino’s ten best works to date: 10. Glengarry Glen Ross – He doesn’t have the most iconic role of the lot, but he certainly makes the most of his screen time.

Outrage Watch: Lars Ulrich may be the most hated man in music today
Welcome to the March 24, 2015 edition of Outrage Watch, HitFix's (almost) daily rundown of all the things folks are peeved about in entertainment. Today's top story: Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich is taking heat over...the group's 1988 album "...And Justice for All"? Anyone familiar with the history of the legendary metal band's fourth LP will know that the album received quite a bit of criticism for its nearly inaudible bass. According to a new interview with Steve Thompson, the man who mixed the record, the idea to turn the instrument down in the mix was actually Ulrich's. "He goes, 'See the bass guitar?'" Thompson related to Ultimate Guitar magazine. "And I said, 'Yeah, great part, man. [Bassist Jason Newsted] killed it.' He said, 'I want you to bring down the bass where you can barely, audibly hear it in the mix.' I said, 'You're kidding. Right?'...He said, 'No. Bring it down.

Bart & Fleming: WB’s Spandex Od; Ebola The Series; Neil Patrick Harris Near Egot

Peter Bart and Mike Fleming Jr. worked together for two decades at Daily Variety. In this occasional column, two old friends get together and grind their axes, mostly on the movie business.

Fleming: Birdman director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu told me he sees superhero movies as right-wing poison and cultural genocide for their simplistic values that stamp out human truths. Warner Bros’ Kevin Tsujihara told Wall Street his slumping film studio will turn around via a full program of 10 DC Comics tent poles to be released 2016-2020.

Will Smith and Tom Hardy are in talks to star in Fury director David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, and 2016 also brings Batman V Superman; 2017 brings Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Justice League; 2018 brings Ezra Miller as The Flash and Jason Momoa as Aquaman; 2019 brings Shazam and Justice League 2; Ray Fisher stars in Cyborg and a Green Lantern reboot arrives for 2020.
