“Zero Hour” on ABC
By Devin D. O’Leary
The National Treasure films weren’t good by any conventional definition of the word, but they were fun. After all who doesn’t love a globe-hopping treasure hunt—especially when it comes wrapped in a conspiracy and painted over with a few layers of historical significance? Just ask Indiana Jones. Or Tom Hanks in that Da Vinci thing. These clue-dropping treasure hunts aren’t something episodic television has had much luck recreating. But ABC’s new thriller “Zero Hour” certainly gives it the old college try. And if the pilot episode is any indication, the network might have something halfway decent on its hands.

Hottie Wars: Brad Pitt vs. Tom Cruise
By Simon McCormack [ Fri Aug 21 2009 1:34 PM ]
I was leafing through People Magazine today (oh, sinful Fridays!) and I happened upon a tirelessly researched, five-paragraph-long article about Brad Pitt trashing Tom Cruise's movie.
Pitt is in the recently released Quentin Tarantino WWII flick Inglourious Basterds. While promoting the movie, an interviewer asked the Hollywood hunk what he thought of Tom Cruise's friendly Nazi film Valkyrie. "It was a ridiculous movie," Pitt responded.
I smell a cat fight! Let's hope these two A-listers settle it with a greased up, mud wrestling match. My money's on Cruise. That guy is totally insane.
