5 shows to watch: 'Five Days at Memorial' looks at how Hurricane Katrina put hospital on life support

'Five Days at Memorial'

Ryan Murphy originally planned to adapt Sheri Fink's book for his "American Crime Story" franchise. Instead, the daunting project fell to John Ridley ("12 Years a Slave") and Carlton Cuse ("Lost"), and the eight-part series couldn't have ended up in better hands.

Kevin Federline thought he was shaming Britney Spears by posting those videos. Yeah, no

You just had to post those parenting videos, Kevin Federline.

Britney Spears’ public spat with her ex-husband escalated late Wednesday night when Federline uploaded three videos taken by the former spouses’ sons, Jayden and Sean Federline, as their mother, um, mothered them. The videos were from four years ago, when the boys were 11 and 12....Read more

Review: It's Jamie Foxx vs Valley vampires in Netflix's bloody fun 'Day Shift'

"Day Shift" is a damned delight. One would be tempted to call it the best horror comedy of 2022 so far, but it mixes so many genres it's more like 2022's best horror-buddy-cop-cartel-drama-bounty-hunter-martial-arts-action comedy (so far).

Jamie Foxx, turning in his most enjoyable performance in years, plays Bud, a down-on-his-luck pool guy in ...Read more

'Day Shift' review: Jamie Foxx hunts undead in so-so vampire comedy

Vampire movies should leave a mark, but "Day Shift" needs to sharpen its fangs.

Stuntman turned director J.J. Perry has a keen sense of visual action and he stages some high-powered sequences in this action comedy, even if his attempts at world building are never quite seen through. But "Day Shift" is mired by its juvenile sense of humor, which...Read more

Michael Phillips: America has an action movie problem, thanks to Netflix. 'Prey' shows 'The Gray Man' how they should be done

You know what the Netflix movies “The Gray Man,” “Red Notice” and the forthcoming Jamie Foxx vampire hunter splurch “Day Shift” accomplish? They make “Prey” over on Hulu look even better by comparison.

I saw all four in a marathon stream-a-thon at home the other day, interrupted by the usual interruptions and the occasional ...Read more

Review: 'Five Days at Memorial' explores medical ethics at one hospital after Katrina

New Orleans is a wonderful city in a dangerous place — half of it sits below sea level, in an area prone to flooding, protected from disaster by levees and luck, neither of which always holds.

Neal Justin: How 'Better Call Saul' defied the odds

For every "Frasier," there are five disasters like "Joey." So there was every reason to believe that "Better Call Saul" was a bad bet. Vince Gilligan, who created "Breaking Bad" and partnered with Peter Gould for the prequel, ignored the long odds.

Devi, the teen girl at the center of “Never Have I Ever,” seems to have everything she wants at the start of Season 3. But she doesn’t.

Review: Aubrey Plaza kills it in 'Emily the Criminal'

Aubrey Plaza knows a thing or two about stealing. With her laserlike glare and killer deadpan timing, she can say absolutely nothing and slyly pocket a scene. Given the right setup, her characters can push memorably against the boundaries of acceptable behavior, mixing absurdity and menace in often dangerously unstable proportions. It's what ...Read more

Metallica!
