‘French Exit’

Wacky, dark Michelle Pfeiffer vehicle just might amuse you

As I’ve said before, possibly a few too many times, comedy is a ­funny thing. What is funny to you might make someone else — maybe your best buddy, your wife or your soul mate — cringe or ­inspire a mildly befuddled shrug of light irritation or indifference. Personally, my favorite comedian (and entertainer/artist, for that matter) of all time […]

Rauch to star in reboot of ‘Night Court’ as new judge

Q: I heard that “Night Court” is the latest classic TV show being revived as a new series. How are they going to do this since the show’s star, Harry Anderson, passed away? — F.P. A: It’s hard to ­imagine “Night Court” without ­Anderson in charge, but the modern version will have John Larroquette returning as Dan Fielding, the role […]

‘Sound of Metal’

Oscar contender demands our attention and respect

“Sound of Metal” was my personal choice as the very best of the eight movies ­nominated this year for the “Best ­Picture” Academy Award. If I had a vote, that’s the one I would have voted for. Sadly, it ­frustrates me way too much that a heckuva lot of my predictions for who was going to actually win were pretty […]

Chastain to play Tammy Faye Bakker in upcoming biopic

Q: Is it true that actress ­Jessica Chastain will be ­playing both Tammy Wynette and Tammy Faye Bakker? — C.P. A: Jessica Chastain made her professional acting ­debut in 2004 with a guest-star ­appearance on the hit medical drama “ER.” She’s so good, it’s shocking that she hasn’t won an Oscar. She’s come awfully close with back-to-back Academy Award nominations […]


Sweet family immigrant story is among the year’s very best films

The Golden Globe Awards are usually ­accurately regarded as the second most ­important awards ­ceremony for movies. In several ways, this ­always seemed a little odd to me. For one thing, the people who do the ­voting for the Golden Globes are a small group of ­overwhelmingly white males who are members of a ­largely ­secretive group called the Hollywood […]

Ed Asner, Patrick Warburton coming to Pensacon

The legendary Ed Asner joined the lineup for Pensacon 2021, set for May 21-23 in downtown Pensacola. With a resume that dates back to the legendary dramatic anthologies of television’s Golden Age, Asner remains an in-demand actor to this day. He appeared in dozens of television guest roles and film roles throughout the 1960s, and became a household name in […]

NBC’s ‘Transplant’ will be picked up for a second season

Q: Could you please tell me if “Transplant” will be ­coming back to NBC and if “Miss Scarlet and the Duke” will be coming back to PBS? — K.E. A: “Transplant” is an NBC medical drama about Dr. Bashir “Bash” Hamed (Hamza Haq), a battle-tested Syrian doctor who leaves his war-torn country to begin his residency at a ­Toronto hospital. […]

Oscar Best Film nominees, 2021

Just like last year, I thought it might be fun and worthwhile, for both me and even a casual movie fan, to look over each of the individual movies that is ­nominated for the “Best Picture” Academy Award this time around. Every year, this is a bit of an all-consuming, ­obsessive thing for me. Here’s a quick review of each: […]
