Goodbye To All That
Shades of grey are important to well-rounded portraits of human beings. Otto Wall is not a total fuck up. He has a job, a marriage and is a loving father to his 9-year-old daughter Eddie. But Otto Wall doesn’t quite have his shit together either. Just a tad irresponsible and perennially unlucky, Otto’s not quite unreliable, but he’s seemingly also just a little bit… defective. A careless driving accident that lands him in the hospital and mercifully doesn’t harm his daughter appears to be keeping in character. But it also acts as a catalyst for his exasperated wife Annie. So Otto is utterly blindsided when Annie, sick of it all, files for a divorce.

Malin Akerman has had a bit of an unlucky run on the big screen in 2012, with "Wanderlust" and "Rock Of Ages" both underperforming, and the upcoming "Stolen" with Nicolas Cage looking like....well, a Nicolas Cage movie. But she's hoping to cap off the the year on a stronger note. The actress is headed to the small screen for some guest stints on ABC's "Suburgatory." The episodes, set to air near Thanksgiving and Christmas, will find her popping up as the "beautiful and free-spirited singer-songwriter" mother of Tessa (Jane Levy), with whom she hopes to form a relationship and put her troubled past behind her. "Suburgatory" returns in October.

Not to get too Will McAvoy about it, but one of the things we lament about the level of discourse on the internet is the way in which people seem to be more and more allergic to the very idea of nuance. We seem to live in a world where things can only ever be awesome or sucky, rotten or fresh. Certainly the reactions to "The Newsroom" have fallen along these lines. The comments on these recaps to date have, for the most part, either told us that the show is the worst thing ever, and that we're crazy for praising it, or that it's the best thing on TV, and that we're biased and stupid for criticizing it.

SXSW '12 Review: Director Jay Chandrasekhar's Tentative Sincerity Steps Undermined In Uneven, Sophomoric 'Babymakers'

If you thought that “Knocked Up” was too mature a take on impending fatherhood, then “Babymakers” just might be the movie for you. Directed by Jay Chandrasekhar, it follows the comical misadventures of a husband who is reluctant to discover whether or not his sperm is “confused” – and if so, how he’ll handle getting his wife pregnant. Marginally more sophisticated than Chandrasekhar’s efforts with the comedy troupe Broken Lizard, “Babymakers” starts off solidly before getting sidetracked by set pieces that take over the entire narrative – and ultimately reveal how little of one there was in the first place.

After winning his first Oscar last year for "The Fighter," can Christian Bale make it a repeat this year? Judging by the first international trailer for Zhang Yimou's Oscar-contending "The Flowers Of War," we somehow doubt it, but the scale of the film does look impressive even if the tone seems somewhat uneven.

Paul Schneider is an actor who is long overdue for more recognition. The actor broke out in David Gordon Green's "All the Real Girls" and has since amassed a varied and strong body of work with turns in "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford," "Bright Star," "Lars and the Real Girl" and even an early stint on "Parks and Recreation." This year alone he's mixed up as well, taking a role in the period drama "Water For Elephants" and in Christoph Honore's musical Cannes closer "Les bien-aimés." But his next move is mystifying and we hope isn't the start of a downward trend for the actor.
