‘Walking Dead’ Recap: Carl Challenges Negan in ‘Sing Me A Song’

‘Walking Dead’ Recap: Carl Challenges Negan in ‘Sing Me A Song’
Sooner or later, we were going to get the episode “The Walking Dead” has been spinning its wheels all season to set up, and “Sing Me a Song,” the penultimate episode of the first half of the show’s seventh season—blame AMC’s cockamamie scheduling practices for the cumbersome terminology—is almost it. Things don’t happen as much as they threaten to imminently do so, but after five long weeks of table-setting, it’s a relief when the appetizers start showing up.

Like the Negan-centric “Service” before it, “Sing Me a Song” runs over an hour without commercials, yet another indicator of how much stock the show is placing in its bat-wielding Big Bad. Showrunner Scott M. Gimple and co. don’t seem to realize—or don’t care, given the opportunity to sell additional commercial time—that Negan becomes less frightening the more time we spend with him, like

‘The Walking Dead’ Sticks with Delayed Gratification in Midseason Finale

‘The Walking Dead’ Sticks with Delayed Gratification in Midseason Finale
Spoiler warning: Do not read on unless you’ve seen the midseason finale of AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” titled “Start to Finish.”

The word that comes to mind when I think back on the first half of “The Walking Dead” season six is “frustration.” The show has had its share of pacing issues this year, largely due to the decision to set the first batch of episodes over the course of a couple of days, which – while an interesting idea on paper – has led to a scattershot storytelling approach that has strung some story threads out for far too long (like Sasha and Abraham’s destructive jaunt through zombie territory, and Carl and Ron’s sullen teen angst-off), and allowed for some downright self-indulgent narrative leaps that remain pretty unjustifiable (I’ve said all I need to say about Glenn’s arc).

That sense of delayed gratification continued in “Start to Finish,

The Walking Dead Fall Finale Recap: Tower of Terror

The Walking Dead Fall Finale Recap: Tower of Terror
Since last week’s episode of The Walking Dead left us with questions, lots of questions — Would Ron shoot Carl? Would Carol learn Morgan’s secret? Would the collapsed tower turn Alexandria into an all-you-can-eat buffet for the walkers? — we expected answers, lots of answers, from the fall finale. But how many did we actually get? Read on and find out!

Marcia Gay Harden and Toby Regbo in Someday This Pain Will Be Useful To You.

Newcomer Toby Regbo (One Day) stars as a precocious yet vulnerable high school graduate at a crossroads in the 2011 independent comedy-drama film Someday This Pain Will Be Useful To You.

Regbo plays sad sensitive graduate James, who has a deep appreciation for the world, but no idea how to live in it. Receiving no help from his divorced parents (Pollock‘s Marcia Gay Harden and Conviction‘s Peter Gallagher) or his 20-year-old memoir-writing sister (Deborah Ann Woll, Catch .44), James decides to reject the adult world. And so, he refuses to leave for college, despite being accepted by Brown University, and cares about nothing – except visits to his free-spirited grandmother (Ellen Burstyn, The Exorcist) and a life coach (Lucy Liu, Charlie’s Angels), the only ones who

'True Blood' Star Deborah Ann Woll Joins Zac Efron In 'Are We Officially Dating?'

It's only a matter of time before the talented and (very) lovely "True Blood" star Deborah Ann Woll begins to break out beyond the now silly HBO show (not that it was Shakespeare to begin with -- but how many more subplots can it add?). This summer she had a very nice minor, but important turn in the excellent, but unfortunately ignored "Ruby Sparks" and in case you forgot, she was in early talks for Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master" for the role of Elizabeth before the movie was dumped by Universal, in its first incarnation. But after a number of indies that did her talents no favors ("Catch .44," the recently released "Someday This Pain Will Be Useful To You") she's now landed a role opposite Zac Efron that will hopefully boost her profile. Woll has joined the upcoming comedy "Are We Officially Dating?" that will hopefully be better than its title.

Review: 'Someday This Pain Will Be Useful To You' Proves Its Title Wrong

The displeasure one feels in watching, or simply enduring, the indie dramedy "Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You" is directly proportional to how throughly selfish and unsympathetic the lead character James truly is. When we're first introduced to the misanthrope, he's on the roof of his home in New York City with the family dog, whom he ties to a steam pipe, only to have it watch, obviously concerned, as he contemplates dropping himself to his death into the street below. And then toward the end of the film, when he comes across the dead body of a relative (oh, spoiler? -- there will be more, and believe us, you don't want to watch this movie), instead of trying to find help or alert someone, he calmly sits down and opens up the birthday present he was going to receive from them. These are the heights of his self-involvement,
