A new episode of the movie review podcast CinemAdddicts is out, and to top things off we cover the latest Marvel release Captain America: Civil War. Though I’ve been a diehard comic book fan since the tender age of 5, I was slightly disappointed by Avengers: Age of Ultron and Iron Man 3. Thankfully Captain [...]
Greta Gerwig stars in writer/director Rebecca Miller’s Maggie’s Plan, a New York set comedy that is a welcome change of pace from her previous work (The Private Lives of Pippa Lee, The Ballad of Jack and Rose).

Chrisley Knows Best, now four seasons into its success, was initially known for Todd Chrisley’s straight talking, tough loving manner (as Todd loves to say, “the struggle is real”). However, Todd’s family has also achieved their share of star status through the show’s journey, as son Chase Chrisley has his own podcast and is [...]
Trent Harmon is the final winner of American Idol, and for the 25-year-old it’s been quite a run. The powerhouse singer, who’s made ends meet as a waiter in Mississippi, beat out La’Porsha Renae for the crown, and was obviously thankful for the honor.
