    'Fringe' Writers Monica Owusu-Breen & Alison Schapker Rewriting Secret J.J. Abrams Project 'Zanbato'

    Have you been watching Fox's J.J. Abrams-produced sci-fi drama "Fringe?"

    New Trailer & Photos Of 'The Help' Starring Emma Stone, Viola Davis & Bryce Dallas Howard

    There's sort of two ways to look at DreamWorks' upcoming civil rights drama, "The Help." Set in the 1960s during the civil rights movement, the picture is either (or probably) a) an Oscar contender, b) a literate-minded chick flick (this is a starved audience and Oprah will be endorsing this, you can be sure of it) or c) an interesting mix of the two that may have some worthwhile elements such as, say, "Julie & Julia."

    In case you live under a rock, 30 Rock creator-star Tina Fey's new book, Bossypants, is getting good reviews like this one in the LAT:But any concern that Fey, like so many before her, has been ruined by fame is quickly dispelled by "Bossypants," a book that reminds you why Fey has succeeded where so many have failed — because she is precise, professional and hilarious. At first, "Bossypants" appears to be just more of the same — there's Fey on the cover looking fabulous but not owning it (her airbrushed face is framed by two large and hairy male arms) and the back is filled with fake and self-deprecating quotes regarding her appearance and t...

    There hasn't been a film more controversial in recent memory than Srdjan Spasojevic's "A Serbian Film." If you thought you could handle torture porn, this one takes it to a whole new level with rape, necrophilia, and pedophilia all depicted quite graphically in the film that supposedly acts as a met...
