On the latest episode of Big Little Lies, the women of Monterey Bay prove they're very good at building walls around themselves, but without a proper foundation those walls will very quickly come crashing down.
HBO's Big Little Lies returns for a second season and the question then is this: is it as good as season one? Or, like many extensions of miniseries that have come before it, does it fall prey to its own success?
Make it your beeswax to marathon Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later.
If there is such a thing as a good lie, is there such a thing as a good murder?
Big Little Lies is a beautifully shot, thought-provoking drama that contains knock out performances from some talented powerhouses.
Once gain the Duplass brothers have brought us something original and fresh. The Overnight might not be the biggest movie of the summer, but it's easily the funniest thus far.
The hilarious comedy The Overnight opens this weekend and we got a chance to talk to Adam Scott about all kind of sophisticated things, like fake penises, goatees, and butthole paintings.
The little bit of charm and humour present in the first Hot Tub Time Machine was syphoned out for this uninspired, unfunny sequel.

We FINALLY start digging ourselves out of the backlog of DVDs and Blu-Rays we received over the past month with the first of two special home entertainment columns this week. Today we look at the hilarious Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa, the intense Captain Phillips, the Adam Scott comedy A.C.O.D., Kuosawa's classic Throne of Blood on Criterion, and Dylan McDermott trapped in a Freezer.
Although it doesn't work 100% of the time, Ben Stiller's take on James Thurber's famous short story The Secret Life of Walter Mitty shows the filmmaker and actor maturing as an artist full of wonderful vision and boundless ambition that make it a joy to watch.
This week on DVD and Blu-Ray, Andrew Parker takes on Mel Gibson in Get the Gringo, Lockout, Friends With Kids, Being FlynnA Bag of Hammers, and the fourth season of TV's Sanctuary, while Phil Brown sinks into American Reunion, Silent House, and Bobcat Golthwait's God Bless America.
In her first directorial effort and her third screenplay, actress Jennifer Westfeldt has crafted a film that has the look and feel of a modern, feminist Woody Allen film. Friends With Kids balances observational laughs and pathos quite deftly amongst a band of well-to-do New Yorkers with the help of a stellar cast. It shows the growing pains of a talent trying something new, but the strengths greatly outweigh the minuses brought on as a result of a misguided ending.
It's hard not to like Paul Rudd. The actor has an affable, everyman charm and a real gift for comedy that comes through in almost every role he plays, even when the source material isn't particularly inspired. Rudd's new film, Our Idiot Brother — in which he plays the titular dumb sibling — is not a particularly inspired piece of filmmaking, but it nevertheless manages to coast by on good intentions and happy accidents much like its central character.
