Peter Dinklage puts 'My Dinner With Herve' on higher plane
The jokey-sounding title does a bit of a disservice to "My Dinner With Herve," an HBO movie worth seeing solely for "Game of Thrones" star Peter Dinklage's portrayal of Herve Villechaize. Poignant in places, clunky in others, there are classic "A Star is Born"-esque themes in the "Fantasy Island" second banana's tragic tale, a treatise on the benefits and toll of life as a public curiosity.

First it was "Iron Fist." Now it's "Luke Cage."

For stars, Super Bowl performances might not be worth the headaches
The Super Bowl halftime show was originally seen as a clever way to capitalize upon the world's biggest TV stage.

'Halloween' sequel is up to its old tricks
The idea of doing a sequel to the original "Halloween" 40 years later -- ignoring all the screen mayhem in between -- is pretty inspired. Alas, that largely exhausts any freshness in a movie that, after the first sight of Jamie Lee Curtis and initial strains of that eerie musical score, draws heavily on the old bag of tricks, built around slicing and dicing unsuspecting teenagers.

Is the case against Harvey Weinstein unraveling?
Harvey Weinstein, the disgraced movie mogul whose alleged sexual assaults sparked the international #MeToo movement, may be sentenced to a lifetime of shame and ridicule. Legal experts, however, now indicate he may never see the inside of a jail, let alone go to trial to face his accusers.

TV has more work to do for the working class

Kennedy's vision was as much about grit, guts and determination as any feat of engineering.

'Kids Are Alright' creator shifts 'juice' from political to the personal
