‘Black Swan’ review: It’s dark and intense but goes a little too far at times

Darren Aronofsky’s “Black Swan” is almost perfect. And I’m about to give it an almost perfect review. Not perfect, almost perfect. I’ll explain why soon. I really liked the movie. I loved the mind-f**k. I LOVED the amped ballet score as the movie score. I loved Natalie Portman. I loved Barbara Hershey. I even loved […]

“Dexter” Season 5, Episode 10: “In The Beginning” For the first time this season, “Dexter” grabbed me, pulled me in and made me care about my favorite TV show again. It’s been a long and slow season for me. I love the characters and am devoted to the show but I’ve felt so disconnected this […]

‘The Walking Dead’ Epiosde 4 recap: Now that’s the way to close an episode

“The Walking Dead,” Season 1, Episode 4: “Vatos” “The Walking Dead’s” fourth episode opened with some pretty subtle foreshadowing. Andrea and Amy are fishing and reminiscing about how their father taught them to fish. It was a tender family moment, but a bit forced. I immediately knew something was going to happen to one of […]

‘In Treatment’ Week 2 recap: Everyone’s a jerk

It’s week 2 on Dr. Paul Weston’s couch and if I were to make an early diagnosis, I’d say everyone’s immature and bitchy. Even Paul himself. On Monday, Paul (Gabriel Byrne) met with Sunil (Irrfan Kahn) and Frances (Debra Winger). Sunil is still working through the major changes in his life. He lost his wife […]
