I am a member of a group of people that make up a far greater portion of the population than you'd think: People who are frothing with anticipation for a new film from Paul Thomas Anderson. Any film by Paul Thomas Anderson. This week, we rejoiced. The early teaser for his newest, The Master was released online.
(See trailer below article.)
The big idea was to feature some of the more highly-anticipated movies from the 2012 film slate -- of which there are many -- however, I'll admit: a couple clunkers still managed to sneak their way in. But overall, I feel like there is a little something for everybody on this list.
I'm not one of these self righteous film critics who always complain that movies aren't as good as they used to be. There are plenty of wonderful films out there to be enjoyed, one just requires a little extra effort to seek them out. Maybe I can help.
Here is the time of year that film buffs love. Summer is over, let's get serious.
The new fall television season is upon us! I know I'm not the only one who's excited. While cable has come on strong over the last few years with some exceptional series, and the internet takes more and more of our time each and everywhere, there still isn't quite anything like network television.
Last week, all five American networks held their respective "Upfronts" in New York City, where advertisers and the press are given a chance to take a look at the preliminary schedules for each network for the following year, and begin to decide where to spend their cash for the next television season.
It's fall again, which means it's time for the annual return of the TV season. This year's batch of both new and returning comedies looks extremely promising.
There comes a time when the summer heat begins to die down and you get that first really cool rainy day which reminds you that, before you know it, the leaves will start to change. Yes, it's that time of year again -- fall.
In recent years, the television landscape has been a little erratic, with so many zillion reality shows debuting it seems like every week.
Okay, so this is a little late. Back in October, I took a look at the emergence of the new 2004-2005 television season. There has been a lot of interesting developments since I wrote that article.
It's been another year since I cashed in my Oscar hopes and scares. Why did I wait so long to fire off another Oscar look? Well you would have to look back at the year that was 2004.
As it goes with Oscar, it is the first time in three years that a Lord of the Rings film hasn't sucked up so many categories like a Hoover vacuum.
Traditionally, the new television season comes the Monday after the Emmy telecast. But in recent years, networks have begun rolling their new seasons out before the Emmys have even aired. Now this season, it seems that networks have no idea when to debut new shows.
