Viewers of CBS' The Good Wife have been left distraught after the show's writers brutally murdered one of the main characters. This time though the assassination hasn't been one of rhetoric but of actual violence.

Mamie Gummer In Emily Owens M.D. Flatlines.


Mamie Gummer Meryl Streep Robert King

Mamie Gummer, Meryl Streep's 29-year-old daughter, was doing absolutely fine before she began starring in her own show, 'Emily Owens, M.D'. She had bit parts in various TV shows, she played a supporting actress in a film every now and again, and she even got married last year to fellow actor Ben Walker (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter). She was doing absolutely fine. As was the world really. So there was just no need for CW's new Tuesday night show 'Emily Owens, M.D.', in which Gummer stars as the eponymous lead character who is straight out of Med. School, ever to grace the world with its existence.

America has done medical dramas and medical comedies and it has done them very well. Our favourites are of course E.R. (classic!), and Grey's Anatomy, but also Scrubs and House score pretty highly with us, however 'Emily Owens, M.D.', manages to wrench everything that was subtle and everything that was terrible, and exploit them outright. Emily Owens is reminiscent of the lead character of that utterly terrible final season of Scrubs. She's quite high pitched, monstrously irritating and talks. A lot.

USA Today and SeattlePi.com have both criticized it heavily for being far too much like Grey's Anatomy. If that really were true, perhaps it would be worth watching. However, characterisation is poor and has been done, over and over and over. However, Gummer's colleagues have given high praise to the actress. Jennie Snyder Urman, the show's creator said "She's so honest, so vulnerable, so raw, and that makes her so likable. She brings this sort of naivete to the role that is subtle and elegant.... When I think about her, I don't think about her mom." Plus, Robert King, co-creator, told the Chicago Tribue “"When she came in to audition, what was really good is you didn't get a sense that it was a scheme. You sensed actual innocence with her, while all the other actresses kind of pretended to be sweet. She was very unexpected. And that's what makes her so appealing to watch." Perhaps Gummer's got more to give, but there simply isn't much to give in 'Emily Owens, M.D.

Shooting Robert King Review


Excellent
Journalists will love this striking exploration of warzones over the past 15 years, following a photojournalist as he moves from naive and hungry to cynical and reflective by way of Bosnia, Chechnya, Rwanda, Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraq.

While on a hunting trip near his home in Memphis in 2007, 38-year-old photographer Robert King looks back at his career, starting with his first trip as a cocky freelance in Bosnia at age 24, confident he'd win a Pulitzer. Over the next decade and a half, the cameras follow King in Chechnya and Iraq, and we also see photos he shot for magazines and newspapers around the world. He still hasn't won that Pulitzer, but he's now settled in Tennessee with his Russian wife and their son.

Cutthroat Island Review


Bad
Before there was Waterworld, there was Cutthroat Island, an overwrought period pirate movie that cost $92 million to make and earned about $12 million in the theaters. Put simply, this is The Goonies with grown-ups. Only the grown-ups should be embarrassed.

Vertical Limit Review


Good
After suffering through an airline showing of The Perfect Storm, I could think of no better way to spend the evening than with another Man vs. Nature story in 2000's take on the genre, Vertical Limit.

As the thrill-packed trailer might already have cued you, this is an action-filled mountaineering movie, with Chris O'Donnell as Peter Garrett, the unlikely hero trying to save his stranded sister Annie (Robin Tunney) from certain death atop K2, the second-highest place on earth. How'd she get there? Glad you asked... three years after a family tragedy sends Annie on a perpetual climbing quest and Peter grounded on earth, the siblings meet up again at the base of K2, where a Texas billionaire (Bill Paxton) is ascending the peak as a publicity stunt with Annie in tow. Naturally, we learn you can't mess with Mother Nature for profit, and the climbing team ends up stuck in a crevasse only a few hundred feet from the summit -- beaten up, but alive. Barely.
