I did a thing on potential Oscar upsets for Rolling Stone. Some are bona fide upsets, some would just be upsetting.
I wrote an article about this very thing for Rolling Stone. I got to compare Brandon in The Godfather to James Brown inventing funk and God parting form from void, so that was fun.
I reviewed last weekend’s True Detective for Rolling Stone. I thought it was the best episode yet, comfortably so.
I interviewed director Darren Aronofsky about his upcoming Biblical epic Noah, which is set in a timeless non-Biblical fantasy world, interestingly. Key concepts: “this isn’t your grandmother’s Bible,” giant monsters, theodicy, Patti Smith writing a lullaby for Russell Crowe to sing to Emma Watson and recording it with the Kronos Quartet and Clint Mansell.
I reviewed this week’s episode of True Detective particularly that bravura closing sequence, for Rolling Stone. I still think this thing’s mad corny, but it’s certainly well made.
I reviewed the series premiere of HBO’s new anthology-format crime drama True Detective for Rolling Stone. It’s the Spin̈al Tap album cover of hourlong quality dramas — NONE MORE BLACK — but Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson are awfully watchable in it. I’m not sure that’s enough at this point, but we’ll see.
I reviewed tonight’s Downton Abbey for Rolling Stone. That was a disturbing episode. Can a show like this take the weight? That’s what I try to figure out.
Back in black: I reviewed the Season Four premiere of Downton Abbey for Rolling Stone. I enjoy writing about this show a great deal.
Over at Rolling Stone I ask exactly that. Excited to be covering the show for RS again this season.
I reviewed Homeland‘s season finale for Rolling Stone. An exercise in undercutting what little value the show still had.
I reviewed last night’s episode of Homeland for Rolling Stone. Juuuuust about had it with this thing.
I reviewed last night’s Homeland for Rolling Stone. The dictionary definition of “mixed bag.”
I reviewed yesterday’s pretty darn entertaining Homeland episode for Rolling Stone. I really didn’t expect to cheer for this show, let alone over what I cheered for, but hey, neat.
I reviewed this week’s Homeland for Rolling Stone. It continues to feel weird to like Homeland more than most of the critics I read, but it’s a good weird.
I reviewed last night’s post-twist episode of Homeland for Rolling Stone. It’s a very odd feeling to find myself on the high end of the “enjoying Homeland” curve relative to my peers.
