The Good Wife Recap: Shiny Objects – 6×5

It’s a rather frustrating night on “The Good Wife,” but even a middling episode here is better than a good episode of some other shows on TV. Still, I have trouble believing a fair amount of what happens on this week’s episode. While Diane is working at the decrepit Florrick-Agos-Lockhart offices, she receives an email supposedly from Alicia ....more

Jennifer Lopez is Worried in ‘The Boy Next Door’ Stills & Trailer

As much as I love Jennifer Lopez in all her various ventures, every time I see her in “The Boy Next Door” trailer or stills, all I can think is, there’s no way she’d ever put up with that crap. That boy would be toast. But I do love a good psychological thriller, so I’m looking forward to seeing her on the big screen again ....more
