Entourage: Give a Little Bit (season finale)

(S06E12) "Sorry - he Jason Bourne'd me." - Drama Huh?!? Was that really an Entourage season finale? It was so... good. It was as if every conversation I've ever had with my buddies after another season of Entourage and all of the "man, I really wish they had done this or included that" requests were jammed into this episode. Maybe Entourage should have double-length installments more often. Anything to ensure that Ari always walks around with a paintball gun....

Six Reasons Why '24' Has Jumped the You-Know-What

What is going on with Jack Bauer? Have you been watching '24' this season, the first time set in New York City? There were high expectations that this might be the best season yet for '24' because we'd be seeing a lean, mean, older Jack who has been through the wringer and knows all the tricks and turns of the business. Comparisons were made to Jason Bourne, but with the Bauer edge. Unfortunately, we're not seeing the vim and vigor of 'The Bourne Identity' or any of the other Bourne pictures. We're not even seeing the quality of '24' from seasons past. Instead, '24' has turned into something else entirely -- an empty shell of its former self. It's time to call it a day for '24.' The show has definitely jumped the you-know-what....

Four Movie Franchises That Would Make Great TV Shows

A couple of weeks ago I proposed a TV series based on the James Bond character. That got me thinking about other movie franchises that might make for good TV shows. There have been a lot of TV shows and miniseries based on movie franchises, including 'Sherlock Holmes,' 'Planet of the Apes,' 'Terminator,' and even 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' if you want to include animated shows. Here are four movie franchises that haven't been TV shows yet but I think they really could be. 1. 'The Bourne Identity.' Of course, 'The Bourne Identity' was a TV miniseries before it was a hit film series, but that was a while ago. I can picture a series based on the Jason Bourne character, especially with the success of shows like '24.' It could work two ways: have Bourne have amnesia and have him trying to figure out who he is and who is trying to kill him (a la 'Coronet Blue,' a show I'm sure inspired Robert Ludlum), or maybe have him already know who he is and have him in hiding, having to fight the bad guys trying to kill ...

Right now on Cinematical

The folks at our sister site Cinematical are working hard to give you news and reviews of the best -- and worst -- the silver screen has to offer. Here are some of their latest musings on the latest blockbusters, indies, and everything in between: Watch the first ten minutes of Sex Drive: I had initially written this movie off as another low-budget, 10-years-too-late American Pie ripoff, but people have had good things to say about it. Watch the beginning and decide if it's worth shelling out the big bucks for this weekend. Cinematical asks the burning question: Can you believe Angelina Jolie in a role, or is she just too damn pretty? What about her paramour, Brad Pitt? Will you spend the entire time you watch Inglorious Basterds just staring into his eyes? Check out Cinematical's first look at the awkwardly-spelled Inglourious Basterds. Didn't Matt Damon say that the the third Bourne movie would be his last? Because it looks like the guy who wrote The Bourne Ultimatum is writing Bourne 4 as well. ...

Family Guy in trouble for wishing upon a star

According to this article on CNN, the owners of the classic song from Disney's Pinocchio, "When You Wish Upon a Star," are suing the creators of Family Guy for what is being called an "unseemly spoof". Apparently, someone from the music publishing company Bourne Co. saw a repeat of the episode "When You Wish Upon a Weinstein" in which Peter determines that Chris would be more successful if he becomes Jewish. It's a pretty slow reaction time on behalf of the Bourne Co. considering the episode was made sometime in 2002 (although it wasn't broadcast on TV until after the Season 3 DVD release in 2003). The parody was called "I Need A Jew". Apparently, by associating it with such an offensive topic the owners are concerned about devaluing the song....

Mr. & Mrs. Smith -- A look at the pilot script

ABC had garnered a fair amount of press over this one because of the obvious tie-in to the Brad Pitt/Angelina Jolie movie. The big news is that the creators of the movie are back for the TV show. Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Swingers) and Simon Kinberg (X-Men: The Last Stand) have signed on to try and transform their movie to the small screen....

We Spy Details on J.J. Abrams' 'Undercovers'

With 'Lost' set to begin its sixth and final season on February 2, details have emerged on J.J. Abrams' next television project, 'Undercovers.' First of all, NY Magazine seems to confirm that Abrams is indeed directing the pilot. However, the earlier description of the show, which suggested it was to be 'Mr. & Mrs. Smith' meets 'The Bourne Identity,' seems to have been somewhat inaccurate......

Liman signs deal with NBC

Doug Liman, the man behind the recent hit Mr. and Mrs. Smith, as well as various commercial projects and movies such as Go and The Bourne Identity, has signed a two-year deal with NBC Universal Television Studios. Liman also directed the pilot episode of The O.C., and works under the banner of his company, Hypnotic. It remains unclear as to what exactly Liman will be doing for NBC....

Lumen Pierce Shines a Light on 'Dexter'

Julia Stiles is one of those actresses, it seems, that divides people. Those of us who love her love her for her deep voice, her strange beauty (flat face and down-turning mouth) and her off-beat choices ('10 Things I Hate About You,' the 'Bourne' series, and now 'Dexter'). Those who don't like her point out -- rightly I suppose -- that she's monotone, odd-looking, and makes bad choices ('The Prince & Me,' 'Mona Lisa Smile'). Whatever you think of her, it's hard to imagine another actress who could deliver in the role of Lumen Pierce, Dexter's latest partner in crime. For one thing, she has experience playing the no-man's-land of emotional intimacy without physical intimacy. In her role as Jason Bourne's girl Friday and as the untouchable Kat in '10 Things,' she has been a romantic lead where romance is off the menu. It's a key element to the developing relationship between Dexter and Lumen. Like Rita, she's recovering from trauma, but her trauma is fresh and horrifying -- sex is clearly even furt...

USA invests in Universal films

The basic networks used to be the kings of theater to TV imports. When I was a kid I used to get genuinely excited about Saturday night's Wonderful World of Disney movie. Since the turn of the new millennium -- been a while since you heard that phrase, huh? -- cable networks have been playing the movie game. TBS, HBO and others have all brought big name movies to television at a very slow pace. USA Network has made a 11-movie deal with Universal Studios to bring films such as The Bourne Ultimatum and Children of Men to the NBC-owned channel....

Christian Slater coming to NBC

NBC is reportedly moments away from ordering a series starring Christian Slater, according to a story in The Hollywood Reporter. The series is described as "The Bourne Identity meets Jekyll & Hyde"-- where Slater's suburban house dad discovers he has a super-spy alter ego. It would be the first television series for Slater, who has been on television's hot list for years but never made it to primetime. The spy series is created by Jason Smilovic, who also created critically adored-but-ultimately-canceled series Kidnapped and Karen Sisco....

USA Orders Pilots for 'A Legal Mind' and 'Necessary Roughness'

Though news is focused on the major networks and their upfronts this week, development deals are taking place elsewhere on the television landscape. As an example, The Hollywood Reporter reports that USA has greenlit two new pilots that will begin shooting this summer. The first is 'A Legal Mind.' Executive produced by Doug Liman ('The O.C.,' 'Knight Rider,' 'The Bourne Ultimatum'), the story involves a young man who gets a job at a huge corporate law firm. The catch: he doesn't have a college degree. The second pilot is 'Necessary Roughness,' about a tough, divorced, female sports therapist....
