It’s the heart of the holiday season, and you may need a retreat of sorts if you’re having palpitations about buying, wrapping, and rapping with loved ones. There are many old, soothing shows that will be there for you, for hours at a time, when you can no longer face all the joy.Joy can be trying. Advertisement Plenty has been said, by me and a ton of other TV critics — not to mention TV viewers — about Quality TV and Peak TV and so on and so forth. The short version: There are an awful lot of good new shows out there on cable, network, and streaming TV, if you know where to find them.

Rochelle Riley Detroit Free Press Published 9:47 p.m. UTC Aug 18, 2018 People make much of the mic drop, the definitive gesture that marks the end of an excellent moment. But I remember the mink drop — when the daughter of a Baptist preacher known for his million-dollar voice reminded people with a 48-year-old ode to sensuality that she was the one with a trillion-dollar voice.

In the summer of 1977, Ron Howard made his directorial debut with “Grand Theft Auto,” a merrily destructive fairy tale that brightened a lot of multiplexes.Audiences liked Howard. An entire generation grew up with the guy, best known as Opie on “The Andy Griffith Show,” in the 1960s. By the early ‘70s Howard starred in “Happy Days,” which owed a huge debt to “American Graffiti” (1973), the smash co-starring Howard and directed by a relative newcomer named George Lucas.That summer of ‘77 also gave the world “Star Wars,” which spawned sequel after sequel after sequel, and then started spinning off stand-alone pictures.And now, Howard has entered the “Star Wars” universe with “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”Midshoot, the Hollywood veteran replaced directors Chris Lord and Phil Miller, whose penchant for improvisation didn’t go down well with the franchise overlords. The switch worked. … [Read more...] about “Solo: A Star Wars Story” review: A rascal is born

We’re technically in the middle of Los Angeles but, as Marsden notes, it doesn’t look like Los Angeles. “That’s such an L.A. thing to say!” he says with a laugh.Welcome to Marsdenworld, where a leisurely morning stroll lets an actor take stock of his resurgent career and a … [Read more...] about James Marsden Is Having a Moment
