New To On Demand: Red Sparrow By Stephen Whitty The name is Bond. Jane Bond. Jennifer Lawrence is a super-secret agent in Red Sparrow, and her mission is simple — worm her way into an enemy spy’s affections and find out who’s feeding him info. Except — here’s the twist — she is working for the Russians. And her best secret weapon isn’t an ejector seat or killer briefcase but her own irresistible sexuality. Oh, and here’s one more twist: She might actually be working for the Americans instead, or, also. Or not at all. Red Sparrow is a wild […]
New to On Demand: Game Night By Stephen Whitty OK, what’s the answer to “Harmless comedy with two likable stars”? Two words, nine letters? I think we have the solution right here. Game Night is a slick farce that takes a ridiculous situation and works it pretty painlessly, thanks to Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams. You won’t leave the theater holding your sides from laughter, but you won’t walk out holding your head, either. Bateman and McAdams play Max and Annie, young marrieds whose idea of a wild Friday is a night at home with two other couples, chasing after […]
Black Panther Claws His Way To The Top By Stephen Whitty There’s a new kind of Marvel superhero on the prowl. Black Panther isn’t just a different kind of comic-book movie, though, touched with politics and James Bond adventure. It’s a big-screen breakthrough that gives kids — and adults — a bold black hero and an alternative history lesson. In this adventure, there’s a vast African empire, Wakanda, that’s never been scarred by invasion or slavery. Happily hidden away from the world, its people live peaceful lives, made even easier by their vast resources and high-tech achievements. But when an […]
Following up its most-watched season ever, America’s Got Talent hits the road this week in search of the next best act.

We’re a cheap therapy session. We’re the friend that holds your hair back when you puke. Um, I might need you to hold my hair back right now because I’m mildly nauseated after watching this show, but then again, I don’t think I’m still part of VH1’s target demographic. (Note to sensitive readers/viewers – there’s a bit of crudeness in this post, because it’s a crude show. You’ve been warned!) VH1’s newest show, Walk of Shame Shuttle, premieres tonight (Wed. March 18 at 9pm ET/PT). Or, apparently, you can just watch it on their website now, because VH1 just couldn’t wait. […]
“Um, my longest one is probably … this one, and her name is Marla.” -LaRue, referencing Marla, her approximately 17” fingernail, on TLC’s new series, Strange Love. I’m pretty creative, you guys, but even I can’t make this s**t up. The first 2 episodes of TLC’s new series Strange Love premiered tonight. The series, in TLC’s words, “follows the lives of people who prove there’s someone for everyone.” We all have our quirks, but some people are quirkier than others, and sometimes that makes finding love a bit more difficult. This show looks at people looking for love, as well as people who […]
