    Stephen Colbert Hacks Rupert Murdoch's Voicemail (Video)

    Seems like fair play: Stephen Colbert hacks into Rupert Murdopch's voicemail. You may be suspicious of the thick Australian accent and the photo of Murdoch with a koala's face, but you decide if the messages are authentic. Or, to echo Colbert's response to a video of Fox News Channel commentators d...

    Guest Post: Matthew Chapman "How Do You Make Sure You Are HAPPY With Your Film?"

    Some subjects are truly difficult to confront on film, both from a personal and public perspective. Creativity generally requires confrontations -- with oneself, others, and the world at large. Those of us who indulge in these battles, recognize that we -- and our work -- are better for it. Personally speaking, I think it even extends much further: our culture and our world are better for it too. But that doesn't make it easy.What does make it very satisfying, is to be able to stand back after it all, and recognize that the initial decision, the one to engage, was not just justified, but ours. It is that decision that makes a movie our m...

    Guest Post: Damages Returns by Serena Donadoni

    The relationship between Patty Hewes (Glenn Close) and Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne) on Damages has typically been described as that of a mentor and protégé, but itʼs even deeper and thornier. The FX series created by Todd A. Kessler, Glenn Kessler and Daniel Zelman explores one of the most complex female partnerships on television: an almost maternal bond super-charged by ambition. From the first episode, itʼs clear that as an attorney, Ellen wants to be Patty – she tries to emulate her ferocity and single-minded devotion to that all- important case – but doesnʼt literally want to step into her shoes (this isnʼt All About Eve).

    Watch: 4 Clips From 'Captain America: The First Avenger' Keep Up Our Optimism

    One the one hand, director Joe Johnston is a wild card. While he's celebrated for "The Rocketeer" he's also been behind stuff like "Jumanji" and "The Wolfman" so you're never quite sure who you're gonna get. On the other hand, "Captain America: The First Avenger" has a great lead in Chris Evans, a pretty solid supporting cast, and thus far evinces the perfect tone of loyalty to the comic and character, with a good dose of goofy charm to show that it's not taking itself too seriously. So you can see, we're a bit conflicted about the forthcoming superhero flick, arriving on the heels of three comic movies that have been good ("X-Men: First Clas...
