[TV Recap] Shameless “Frank the Plumber”

In TV & Film by Carla NorthyLeave a Comment

Things, for once, were looking up for the Gallaghers. Fiona was doing really well at her new temp job, Lip finally realized how he had been to Mandy, and Karen got hit by a car… Okay, that last one is debatable. For once it was everyone else having a bad day while the Gallaghers enjoyed themselves for the most part. …

[TV Recap]: Shameless “Where There’s a Will”

In TV & Film by Carla Northy2 Comments

Ahh… nothing like the threat of eviction after custody battle to start the week off right.  After successfully getting the kids back from DFS, the Gallaghers squared off with Cousin Patrick and the red headed league (lots of gingers on that side of the family) for possession of Aunt Ginger’s house. Elsewhere, Karen was back to her deceiving ways when …

Quite a few things happened with the Gallaghers and friends this past episode of Shameless.

[Movie Review] 21 and Over – Or “The Hangover, Except In College and Frustratingly Indecisive”

In TV & Film by Kevin ChuLeave a Comment

As a college student who sometimes parties hard(ish), is almost 21 and only a year shy of  graduating, I can safely say that I am the ideal target demographic for 21 And Over , from The Hangover writing duo of Jon Lucas and Scott Moore.  And on many levels, the coming-of-age story and party movie hybrid hits home, including the …

[TV Recap] Shameless “Cascading Failures”

In TV & Film by Carla NorthyLeave a Comment

This week’s episode of Shameless was part tear jerker and part soft-core porno, with Fiona doing everything in her power to get the kids back from foster care and Veronica doing everything in her power to have a child. It exactly what this series is about as the inordinate amount of sex was complemented quite well by sincere attempts on …

[Movie Review] The Perks of Being a Wallflower

In TV & Film by Davis FanLeave a Comment

As …

[TV Recap] Shameless “The Sins of the Caretaker”

In TV & Film by Carla NorthyLeave a Comment

Talk about a complete turnaround. Last week’s Shameless was mostly about the sex with no sentiment; turns out it was just meant to soften us up for this week’s big blow. This was probably the best episode so far this season, as relationships were tested, bullies fought, and a dead body dug up. Unlike last week, “The Sins of My Caretaker” …

Why 3D Sucks (But Hollywood Keeps Making It)

In TV & Film by Carla Northy2 Comments

In 2009, James Cameron’s visually (and nothing else) stunning Avatar (the one with blue people not the awesome cartoon) was unleashed on the world. It was a special effects masterpiece that Cameron meant to be seen in 3-D, and it was earning almost $3 billion at the box office. Not bad considering the plot is basically Pocahontas meets The Smurfs. …
