Alpha Male (I) (2006)

From Ron Shelton, writer/director of Tin Cup and Bull Durham, comes the new comedy, Just Getting Started. Morgan Freeman stars as Duke Diver, the freewheeling manager of the luxury Palm Springs resort, the Villa Capri. Diver may have a mysterious past, but he’s a pro at making sure that life for the high-spirited residents is one big, non-stop party. But the status quo is challenged when ex-military charmer Leo (Tommy Lee Jones) checks in, triggering a competition between Duke and Leo for the top spot of Alpha male, as well as for the affections of the newly-arrived Suzie (Rene Russo). When Duke’s past suddenly catches up with him,
Peter Brook is best known for his work in theatre, but his 1963 screen adaptation of William Golding’s English Lit classic is no quaint repertory effort. Made relatively cheaply (the opening plane crash is literally a photograph of a plane spinning around) with non-professionals in the roles of the children, it’s a remarkably raw and brutal telling of a fable which may be as relevant now as ever before.
In case you’ve been living under a rock, this wartime story concerns a group of evacuating public schoolboys who are stranded on a remote island after their plane crashes. At first it’s all fun and frolics as the kids look forward to their freedom. They nominate a leader, Ralph (James Aubrey). Alpha male Jack (Tom Chapin) isn’t happy about this, and he
In fact, the movie has been lying dormant on a Weinstein Company shelf since it debuted at the 2015 Toronto Film Festival, under the title About Ray. Clearly, director and co-writer Gaby Dellal's film has been much fiddled with in the interim – and not for the good.
A Savant article
This is an odd circumstance. I routinely update, modify, correct and de-stupidify DVD Savant reviews, but this time I’m taking a more radical step. In my March 25 coverage of Twilight Time’s Blu-ray of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, I made a big point of the fact that David Swift’s film adaptation had not made many changes. Several songs were dropped, but that would seem the right thing to do considering that the movie wasn’t planned as a Road Show — it’s only 121 minutes in duration and has no break for an intermission. The much missed
Also, while the team may be worried about Reid, they do have to travel to Philadelphia to work a case involving an UnSub throwing acid in his victims' faces. And just like in "Collision Course," this case shows painful ramifications of rejection.
On Wednesday’s episode of Criminal Minds, titled “Alpha Male,” the team struggles to adapt to their new reality after Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler), who allegedly murdered a doctor in Mexico, opted not to take a plea deal, and only Et has the exclusive first look.

In the sneak peek, J.J. Jareau (A.J. Cook), Tara Lewis (Aisha Tyler), Luke Alvez (Adam Rodriguez) and Stephen Walker (Damon Gupton) try to make sense of Reid’s options after he is alsodenied bail. At the moment, things aren’t looking so great. Then Penelope Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness) proposes a thoughtful way to make sure their pal is taken care of behind bars.
“We’re going to send him letters every day. We’re going to put money in his commissary account. We are
Perhaps that's what makes this exclusive look at Criminal Minds Season 12 Episode 15 so effective.
As Reid filters into his new "home" with all the other convicted and potentially guilty or innocent men he'll be spending his foreseeable future with, it hits home how easily anybody can find themselves in that situation.
Memory loss, an unbelievable tale of innocence or the lack of any other potential suspects could all be viable reasons you become the target of an intensive investigation.
Would your background be squeaky clean enough to keep you out of the hot seat?
I would have thought Reid's, if anybody's, would have given him a get out of jail free pass.
On "Alpha Male," he'll find himself in new and unsteady surroundings trying to survive.
But before he

A few years back the pioneering disc boutique Mondo Macabro imported a number of exotic Eastern horror films, such as Purana Mandir from India. The movies seemed a real cultural curiosity, an imitation of our genre filmmaking with local touches added. Phil Hardy’s Encyclopedia of Horror reference book whetted my appetite for scores of amazing-sounding foreign horror pictures, that I thought I’d never see. Many have been made available in the digital age, although not always in this Region. A friend loaned me this exotic picture,
Those of us who hadn't read the books couldn't fully comprehend the importance of Elena Gilbert's opening words on The Vampire Diaries Season 1.
Nor did we understand just how much we'd come to love the witty banter, thought provoking monologues, and snappy one-liners we would encounter over the course of eight seasons.
Now that The Vampire Diaries Season 8 is in the final stretch, we thought it was time to take a walk down memory lane to relive some of the best quotes* from The Vampire Diaries. Because there are so many awesome quotes from the show's run, we're breaking this down into two installments.
Up first, The Vampire Diaries Seaons 1 through 3. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!
*Editor's note: I chose these quotes myself. So they're my best quotes. Feel free to add yours in the comments!
