Gill Dennis, ‘Walk the Line’ Screenwriter, Dies at 74
Gill Dennis, who co-penned the screenplay for the Johnny Cash biopic “Walk the Line,” has died. He was 74.

Dennis died in his Portland, Ore. home, according to the American Film Institute. AFI was unable to confirm the date of his passing at this time.

Dennis also wrote the screenplays for Walter Murch’s “Return to Oz” (1985) and Judy Davis’ drama “On My Own” (1991), in addition to penning and directing Angelina Jolie’s thriller “Without Evidence” (1995) and the 1973 film “Intermission.” On the TV front, he did the teleplay for the 1996 TNT Western “Riders of the Purple Sage” and wrote the Showtime miniseries “Home Fires.”

Dennis was a 1969 graduate of the AFI Conservatory’s first class, which also included Terrence Malick, David Lynch and Caleb Deschanel. He returned to AFI in 1997 as a master filmmaker-in-residence and taught the incoming class this past September. His students took to Twitter to express their grief.

Private Practice Review: Sheldon's Story

  • TVfanatic
Fans of Sheldon were in for a treat tonight, as Private Practice put the psychiatrist front and center.

Since the beginning of Private Practice Season 6, I've honestly wondered if there would be a Sheldon-centric episode. I've always liked the friendly and helpful doctor; we just know so little about him.

Blame it on the writing, but the problem was never that Sheldon wasn’t likeable. It was simply that that we never had the opportunity to really get to know him. I was afraid that he wasn’t a strong enough character and wouldn’t be able to carry the entire hour.

So, how did he hold on his own? Well, let me just say that I wanted to really like Sheldon’s story. Unfortunately, it was only subpar. There were moments I even caught myself yawning away. Luckily, the final minutes saved the outing from being a complete disaster.

Even If Porn Star Julian St. Jox Did Have An Alleged Three Way With Kim Kardashian, He Needs To Shut Up About It

Ooooh, we picked the highest horse out of the stable for this Kim Kardashian rant! RadarOnline reports that porn actor Julian St. Jox is spilling the beans about an alleged three-way he claims to have had with Kim and porn actress Emily Ann back in 2001, and we could not be more steamed about it. “It was around 11:30 p.m. when Kim showed up with a black male,” St. Jox allegedly tells Star Magazine about the swingers party where they allegedly hooked up.; Star postulates the man may have been Kim’s first husband Damon Thomas. “She wasn’t known at the time at all, not like today, but for everyone who frequented these parties, she was interesting because she was a new face,” St. Jox says, describing their alleged encounter in the creepiest way possible: “She knew what she was doing. She was very responsive to me.” Okay, first of all,

Yellowbrickroad and Going Nowhere: A Movie Review

Directors/writers: Jesse Holland and Andy Mitton.

The problem with a film that does not have direction is that the film simply goes in circles. Just like the characters in Yellowbrickroad, the viewer spends their time spinning their wheels, with no signs showing how to proceed forward. The script from Jesse Holland and Andy Mitton offers certain violent horror elements, but neither filmmaker attempts to make an argument, within the film's narrative. Thus, the viewer must do the work to fill in the blanks. Without evidence of what is and what is not, your effort is best spent on other endeavours.

Seven researchers head out into the bush, to find answers to a mass disappearance. 500 plus people vanished in Friar, New Hampshire in the 1940s. Now, these seven friends will repeat this outcome. Yellowbrickroad is a polished looking indie feature; yet the pacing of this feature is drawn out and purposeless.

Born to Be 'Bad'

Anyone who recalls Bryan Cranston as doofus dad Hal on the Fox comedy "Malcolm in the Middle" knows the man is committed to his craft. Standing around in tighty-whiteys while Hal's wife shaves his back hair, speedwalking in a skintight bodysuit and aerodynamic helmet, and showcasing dazzling choreography in "Dance Dance Revolution," Cranston solidified himself as one of TV's top comedians with his go-for-broke, vanity-free performance. Yet even Cranston's biggest fans couldn't have been prepared for his complex, gut-wrenching turn on AMC's "Breaking Bad" as Walter White, high school science teacher, loving husband and father, and Albuquerque's top methamphetamine producer. "Breaking Bad" was created by Vince Gilligan and features precisely the perfect blend of taut drama and clever satire one would expect from a former writer and producer of "The X-Files." Gilligan worked with Cranston on a 1998 episode of the Fox hit in which the actor played a desperate man
