Glee: The Breakup

Posted by: Michael Walkey  //  October 8, 2012 @ 7:40am

Three episodes in and I haven't felt Glee has been breaking much new ground this season. And you can hear me groan at the sight of Marley and Jake bonding at school about being poor at the beginning of this episode.

Posted by: Michael Walkey  //  September 30, 2012 @ 8:48pm

It's been a fun start to the fourth season of Glee so far, despite some predictability. And so here lies the first episode with a major cliff-hanger ending.

Glee: Britney 2.0

Posted by: Michael Walkey  //  September 24, 2012 @ 7:01pm

Oops, they did Britney again! At only the second episode, Glee does its first theme episode of the season, and Ms. Spears becomes the first artist to get a second treatment from the New Directions. I hope this isn't a sign that Glee is running out of songs/artists to perform.

Glee: The New Rachel

Posted by: Michael Walkey  //  September 23, 2012 @ 7:26pm

Wide eyed Midwestern ingénue. Check. Bright lights, big city. Check. Dreams of making it in the big apple. Check. Drill sergeant for a dance instructor. Check. Reality check. Check.

The calendar says June and for the most part the signs are all here: I've cracked out my air conditioner, I've witnessed the crowning of this year's Stanley Cup Champion, and I just completed the half marathon I run annually on Father's Day.

Year after year, the Academy overlooks many of the top-grossing films of the year in favour of smaller films that play in far fewer theatres and make much less money.

Walkey Talk: Who the Hell Are the Hollywood Foreign Press?

Posted by: Michael Walkey  //  January 22, 2012 @ 7:44pm

Ah, awards season. It's a great time in Hollywood. With so many awards these days being handed out to doctors, scientists, and educators, it's about damn time they honour millionaire movie stars! But seriously, for movie fans like me, it's a chance to see some great films.

Walkey Talk: Scorsese in the 21st Century

Posted by: Michael Walkey  //  December 1, 2011 @ 10:13am

Do we really need to praise Martin Scorsese any more than he's been already? Do I have to reiterate the contributions he's made to film, not just through his endless list of cinematic masterpieces, but also through his contributions and advocacy of film preservation?
