TV alert: Ringo Starr appears on A&E's "Private Sessions" this Sunday. Here's what to expect:

The legendary Singer/Songwriter/Drummer chatted with host Lynn Hoffman and sang 4 songs including his signature hit "Photograph", Beatles hits "With a Little Help From My Friends" and "Boys". Viewers can tune-in to see Ringo Starr also perform the title track off of his anticipated new album Liverpool 8.

Plus, surprise guest appearances from Yoko Ono, Bad Company drummer Simon Kirke as well as Conan O'Brien's Max Weinberg.

"Asterix at the Olympic Games" grossed $4.1 million in its opening weekend, Variety reports. Reviews? Not so hot:

Local critics have almost unanimously savaged the picture.

It “bathes in a tepid marmalade … prepare to be disappointed,” Le Parisien declared.

“The vacuity of this enormous cooking pot ends up making you nauseous,” Le Monde wrote.

Still, I'd be interested in seeing this and the other Asterix films on DVD but, as I mentioned a few days back, none of them are available on U.S.-compatible disks.

  1. The trailer is on Youtube and its hilarious. Looked yesterday like the movie itself was posted in multiple 9 minute segments too but it may be gone by now!Wish I'd had time to watch it.
