  • 'True Blood: The Complete First Season'

    After giving HBO one of its most successful series with "Six Feet Under," producer Alan Ball struck again with this very adult saga based on a series of books by Charlaine Harris. Anna Paquin won a Golden Globe Award as Sookie Stackhouse, a Louisiana...
  • News Openings

    NEWS OPENINGS SUPER JOURNALISTS: (Full-Time) Do you follow the newspaper, or does the newspaper follow you? Are you insanely curious about what you see in everyday life? Do you find three story ideas while in the grocery store checkout line? Love to...
  • Rajiv Joseph's newest stripe

    Rajiv Joseph's newest stripe
    It was a tiny article in the back of a newspaper that first caught the attention of playwright Rajiv Joseph. An American soldier stationed in Baghdad reportedly killed a Bengal tiger at the local zoo after the animal maimed a colleague who was trying to...
  • 'Land of the Lost'

    'Land of the Lost'
    The kitschy, Krofft Brothers-produced Saturday-morning series from the 1970s gets an update that stays just cheesy enough in this feature-film version. As played by Will Ferrell, the central character has been changed from a park ranger to a...
  • 'The Closer: The Complete First Season'

  • 'Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian'

    I admit it: I was a little tough on the first "Night at the Museum." My son and I disagree all the time on movies, yet I suppose it took his delight in the film's simple but surefire premise (to preteens especially) to make me reconsider. Also, repeated...
  • 'The Shield: Season Seven - The Final Act'

    What's gone around finally comes around for Los Angeles rogue cop Vic Mackey (Michael Chiklis) in the concluding round of the ever-edgy, superbly acted FX drama series. His ex-wife (Cathy Cahlin Ryan, wife of series creator-producer Shawn Ryan) could...
  • 'Friday the 13th' (2009)

    With all the sequels there were to the original thriller, you might think there already had been a remake, but this violence-fest is the official update of the first film. Jared Padalecki ("Supernatural"), Amanda Righetti ("The Mentalist") and Danielle...
  • It takes more than a prayer

    The song was called "A Great Big Buncha Happy!" but none of the authors of "Sister Act: The Musical" seemed terribly cheerful. For a year and a half, the new musical's composer, lyricist, director and two writers had toiled to transform the 1992 Whoopi...
  • Even off the set, there's still plenty of action

    The director's cut is a filmmaker's ultimate revenge, and Peter Bogdanovich gets a double helping with a twin-pack DVD release of two of his classic movies, "The Last Picture Show" (1971) and "Nickelodeon" (1976). " 'The Last Picture Show' has been...
