As a movie, "Diamonds Are Forever" is mediocre at best. Based on critics' scores, Rotten Tomatoes ranks it as the 16th best of the 23 official James Bond movies leading up to Friday's release of "SPECTRE." ("Dr. No" finished first, "A View to a Kill" last.)

If you were to lead a locations tour of Las Vegas' custom car reality shows, you wouldn't need to use a bus.
It's a little-known fact of film criticism: Saturday morning screenings are almost universally awful.
Just in time for Halloween, Showtime is unleashing one of the creepiest, most depraved characters you'll ever see on television: Warren Steed Jeffs.
You wanna win the war on drugs? Find a way to get each cartel boss alone in a room, then have Benicio Del Toro glare at him. It won't be long before the world's supply of illicit substances dwindles to whatever weed Seth Rogen happens to be holding.
Space travel + '70s-era radio hits = awesomeness.
"You know, plenty of shows out there are, like, 'Here's the kid with cancer; now give me an Emmy.' We're a show that's here to show you a hell of a good time for 45 minutes each and every week. That's our job."
We've reached the point where there are almost as many people making TV shows as there are watching them. Here's a look at the 22 new series the networks are trotting out this fall. And, as always, dates and times are subject to change.
Not long into "Black Mass," director Scott Cooper's grim tale of Boston mobster James "Whitey" Bulger and his dealings with the FBI, I started trying to guess the fate of each new character as part of a game I called "Whacked or Not Whacked." Spoiler alert: The result was usually Whacked.

You know you've aged out of the target demographic for "We Are Your Friends" when during the triumphant pool party to christen the house up-and-coming DJ Cole Carter rents with his buddies all you can think about are their poor neighbors and whether those homeowners will have some sort of recourse through their HOA.
When it comes to filming in Las Vegas, the choice of hotels can be pretty random.
The action-comedy "American Ultra," equal parts gonzo and ganja, is a breath of fresh, albeit smoky, air.
As titles go, "Fear the Walking Dead" isn't just underwhelming, it's a little deceptive. Then again, "Expressing a Feeling That Begins as Mild Curiosity but Eventually Grows to Encompass a Moderate Amount of Concern About the Walking Dead" doesn't exactly roll off the tongue.
Every sensible executive in Hollywood should have laughed Guy Ritchie out of the room.
Despite years of rumors and speculation, Las Vegas never got its own screaming, slapping, Champagne-flinging "Housewives" spinoff. Instead, we're getting the screamier, slappier, Champagne-flingier "Hotwives" spinoff.
