Review: “The Accountant” (R)

(NEW YORK) -- Even with his recent acting “comeback” -- his “Benaissance,” if you like -- I find Ben Affleck is still underrated. Sure, we understand he knows how to direct a film with the best of them, winning a Best Picture Oscar for Argo, but as an actor, I don’t think he get a fair shake from critics.  The Accountant should dispel any notion that Affleck isn’t a solid actor. To deny that is just pure hating. Don’t hate. Affleck is Christian Wolff, an accountant with autism. Through flashbacks, we learn about his difficult childhood and his family’s efforts…

On Live with Kelly Thursday, Reedus explained how fans of the series give him all sorts of trinkets and other mementos -- including "body parts," like breast implants. But one fan really left her mark on him when she up and bit him at a fan convention. "There was…

Hail to the Geek: President Obama's Essential Sci-Fi Viewing

(WASHINGTON, DC) -- It's well known that President Obama is pretty steeped in geek culture.  He's a self-confessed sci-fi fan and even once appeared in a Spider-Man comic, so the POTUS guest-editing Wired magazine's a good fit. As such, the president offers a list of his eight favorite sci-fi movies and shows, and what he thinks about each. Topping Obama's list is 1969's influential Stanley Kubrick film 2001: A Space Odyssey, which the president says "captures the grandeur and scale of the unknown." Star Wars: Episode IV -- A New Hope made #4 on Mr. Obama's list, "because it was fun and revolutionized special effects," and is "the ultimate…

Matthew McConaughey on Proposing to His Wife, and Those Lincoln Car Commercials

(NEW YORK) -- When Matthew McConaughey proposed to his now-wife, Camila Alves, five years ago, it was a bit dramatic for his family. The actor recalls the moment in a new interview with Esquire. It happened while they were visiting his family during the holidays. "I remember hitting the knee, looking into her eyes, and…I remember her face," the Oscar winner shares. "I remember this smile coming up from her feet. I remember her having to catch her breath. And she didn't say yes right away. And then the whole family was going, 'Jeezus, she's gonna say no.'" Of course,…
