Here’s a look at this week’s new movies: “The German Doctor,” “Obvious Child,” “Transformers: Age of Extinction” and “Under the Electric Sky.”
An NYPD detective teams with a French cabdriver to solve crimes. This is something that really exists on an American TV network.
The new Middle Eastern drama, debuting at 10 p.m. Tuesday, has a few problems, most alarmingly the presence of the main character’s teenage children.
When last we saw Bon Temps — that seemingly sleepy Louisiana town that’s chock-full of more weirdness per square foot than Venice Beach and Hollywood Boulevard combined — “True Blood” (9 p.m. Sunday, HBO) had jumped ahead six months.
When he’s in Las Vegas, “Think Like a Man Too” star Romany Malco says he prefers “a really nice turndown service” to a night in the clubs.
In “Think Like a Man Too,” Friday’s other big release, one of the characters suggests that, instead of a wild bachelor party, everyone should make better use of the Strip and just go see “Jersey Boys.” Smart man.
It’s a small performance in a small film. But there are enough moments to let the “Twilight” star’s talent sparkle like a certain vampire in the sunlight.
Here’s a look at this week’s new movies, half of which have ties to Las Vegas:
Sure, many of our homeowners are still underwater.
“22 Jump Street” is a bit of a mixed bag, but some of the movie’s biggest laughs come from Jillian Bell, who’s a breath of hilariously hostile air as she riffs, improv-style, about old Jonah Hill’s undercover cop looks.
“22 Jump Street” doesn’t exactly break the fourth wall. It runs headfirst into the fourth wall, falls down, sees those little cartoon birds circle its head. And the plot isn’t just thin, it’s borderline anorexic.
The “Father’s Day Bond-A-Thon,” a full day of 007 movies, kicks off Sunday morning on EPIX.
Here’s a quick snapshot of the new movies hitting theaters this week, including Jonah Hill’s “22 Jump Street” and Jonah Hill’s “How to Train Your Dragon 2.”
Bob Markworth and Tomas De la Cruz will take part in the next episode of “AGT,” airing at 8 p.m. Tuesday on KSNV-TV, Channel 3.
The blue skies are getting darker on USA.
The long-running game show will hold local auditions Wednesday.
For his fans, “Edge of Tomorrow” offers enough of the old Tom Cruise standbys: a motorcycle scene, romance, etc. — while showcasing a rarely seen side of the actor.
Here’s a quick peek at the new movies hitting theaters this week.
Referring to a miserable excuse for a reality show as a “social experiment” is a bit like calling what your dog does in the park an “expulsion of unneeded materials.” In both cases, the end result still stinks.
The Las Vegas-based series kicks off a new batch of back-to-back episodes at 10 p.m. Thursday on History.
Nobody likes sitting next to small children at the movies.
Considering that “Crossbones” is being marketed as a Blackbeard drama, it’s fairly disappointing that John Malkovich’s Blackbeard is around for less than 12 minutes of the premiere.
Pity the old-timer who, after seeing the posters and only half-watching the commercials, buys a ticket for “A Million Ways to Die in the West” without even a passing awareness of its co-writer, director and star, Seth MacFarlane. The poor guy may never leave his Barcalounger again.
The Disney movie turns the tables on the studio’s 1959 animated classic — and undoes most of what you know and love about it — with this wildly revisionist live-action tale that creates a backstory for its most popular villain.
