The best feel-good films and TV on Netflix

10 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sometimes we need a serious pick-me-up, and the only cure is a good dose of film or TV. Whether it's a boost of comforting nostalgia or a heart-warming tale of boy-meets-girl (or whatever your preference), we all have our feel-good go-tos.

Here are some great shows and movies (all available on Netflix now) to watch when you're having a bad day or just want to chill out with some stress-free TV:

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

In the opening episode of Tina Fey's new comedy series, Kimmy emerges after 15 years' imprisonment underground by the charismatic and manipulative Reverend Richard Wayne Gary Wayne into a world she doesn't quite understand.

Rather than giving up in the face of adversity, she decides to squeeze everything she can out of life. Her childlike joy at the simplest of modern conveniences gives us the opportunity to look around at the things we take for granted with fresh eyes, »

Inspector Gadget: new movie in the works

25 May 2015 11:09 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Inspector Gadget is getting a live action movie reboot, with The Lego Movie producer Dan Lin overseeing matters...

Inspector Gadget's finest hours really lie in the cartoon series of the 1980s. The subsequent late 1990s live action movie cast Matthew Broderick and Rupert Everett, and whilst the film was a decent box office hit, the movie wasn't much cop. At all. A direct to DVD sequel then followed a few years later, which cast French Stewart in the lead role, before Disney seemed to (thankfully) lose interest.

Until now, at least. Dan Lin, one of the producers of The Lego Movie, is bringing Inspector Gadget back to the big screen, and Disney is backing the project. It'll be a live action film again, although at this stage we don't know who is writing it, who is directing it, or who is set to play Inspector Gadget. Er, so we've »

Louie, Ep. 5.06: “Sleepover” one of the series’ lightest-ever episodes

15 May 2015 11:04 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Louie, Season 5, Episode 6: “Sleepover”

Written by Louis C.K. (story by C.K. and Pamela Adlon)

Directed by Louis C.K.

Airs Thursdays at 10:30pm Et on FX

A few episodes back, Louie had a contentious conversation with the proprietor of a kitchenware store, who insisted that if the young seemed to be outpacing him, it was a sure sign that things were going well, and that the future would be in capable hands – hands like those of his daughters, Lilly and Jane. In the opening of “Sleepover,” Louie takes Lilly to Broadway to see a 60s-era play (actually conceived for Louie) with a star-studded cast (John Lithgow, Michael Cera, Glenn Close, and returning Louie guest Matthew Broderick) , and is distressed to see her using her phone during the performance. As it turns out, she was actually using her phone to read up on the play and enrich her own understanding of the material, »

Review: 'Louie' - 'Sleepover': One little goat...

15 May 2015 6:33 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A quick review of last night's "Louie" coming up just as soon as I tell you that rape is a financial thing... I was on vacation for last week's episode, which opened with a "Midnight Run" reference (Charles Grodin again demonstrating that he knows how to say hello in many languages), closed with a song about diarrhea, and in between presented a macabre parade of nightmares for Louie to suffer. As challenging as it would be to try analyzing all of that, there's a part of me that's relieved I get to return to a much more straightforward episode like "Sleepover." Filled with a Woody Allen-ish jazz score, "Sleepover" gave us another collection of vignettes about Louie trying to relate to the women in his life, and having mixed success. The sequence about taking Lilly to a Broadway play (with an all-star cast featuring Matthew Broderick, Glenn Close, John Lithgow »

80s Fashion On Film

13 May 2015 4:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The bright, brilliant fashion of the 1980s has often been captured on film – the over-the-top nature of the clothes lends itself beautifully to cinema, with some of the most iconic outfits of all time captured in this era. To celebrate the home entertainment release of A Most Violent Year, in which Jessica Chastain showcases an incredible array of 1980s-era Armani, we take a look at other films which demonstrate the fashion of the decade.

Submarine (2010)

Richard Ayoade’s comedy drama stars Craig Roberts as 15 year-old Oliver Tate, who has two major ambitions – to lose his virginity to the beautiful Jordana (Yamin Paige), and to save his parents’ rocky relationship (a task made all the more difficult when his mother’s ex-lover reappears in their lives). Costume designer Charlotte Walters does a brilliant job of capturing the wonderfully quirky take on the classic coming-of-age tale, dressing the young cast in a wonderful array of duffle coats, »

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Losers on the Road in the Neverland of California Wineries and Neurotic Peter Pan-ish Males

8 May 2015 5:10 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Sideways' movie, with Paul Giamatti and Thomas Haden Church 'Sideways' movie review: California winery tour follows conventional road to male maturity With the 1999 Matthew Broderick-Reese Witherspoon vehicle Election, Alexander Payne displayed a flair for satirical comedy the likes of which would have turned Billy Wilder greener (with envy) than the Sideways poster found further below in this commentary. With the 2002 Jack Nicholson star vehicle About Schmidt, Payne demonstrated that his comedic flair could go the way of Wilder's in fluff like Sabrina and Love in the Afternoon: artificial, cutesy, bland.* In Sideways, Payne opted for the safer About Schmidt route – which may explain the film's enormous popularity with critics and audiences alike. For my part, I found his adaptation (with Jim Taylor) of Rex Pickett's novel to be an overlong, moralistic, and thoroughly unconvincing effort.

15 April 2015 1:42 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The first trailer for director Neil Labute’s (The Shape of Things) new film Dirty Weekend has been released ahead of its Tribeca Film Festival debut, and you can view it below…

Labute’s Dirty Weekend stars Matthew Broderick (The Producers) and Alice Eve (Star Trek Into Darkness) and is set in Albuquerque, where “work colleagues Les and Natalie discover more about each other than they ever thought possible. Anxious and irritable, Les is drawn back into the city by past experiences he can’t forget (even if he doesn’t really remember the particulars of his previous drunken adventure). Natalie, refusing to leave his side, follows along as her own secrets are slowly revealed, leaving her feeling both vulnerable and unbound.”

The film is set to debut at Tribeca in the Feature Narrative line-up this Sunday, although its official release date in the Us (or indeed UK) is still to be confirmed. »

Watch: Matthew Broderick and Alice Eve Have a 'Dirty Weekend' in Tribeca Trailer

14 April 2015 7:55 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: 12 Must-See Films at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival When a film’s main promotional still image has two dildos in the foreground, you kind of know what you’re getting into, especially when that film was written and directed by Neil Labute. In "Dirty Weekend," two colleagues, Matthew Broderick and Alice Eve, are delayed in the Albuquerque airport. Their aimless wanderings naturally lead to intimate conversations, hidden secrets and a witty showdown. Despite the suggestive title, Labute’s reputation for digging into primal fantasies and human instinct suggests a highbrow examination of "the ripple effects of desire." Yet despite the film's description (and the dildos), from the look of this trailer, "Dirty Weekend" may also hit a few saccharin notes. Labute isn't just about the salacious. "Dirty Weekend" will screen at the Tribeca Film Festival. Read More: Cannes Will Open With a Film By a Female Director for the First Time. »

‘Dirty Weekend’, Neil Labute’s newest feature, gets its first trailer

14 April 2015 7:43 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While filmmaker Neil Labute has made a name for himself with a number of feature films since his debut in 1997, his last onscreen venture was the 2013 film Some Velvet Morning. In the interim, Labute has mainly been working in television, but his departure from features is poised to end at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival, where he will unveil his newest feature.

Titled Dirty Weekend, Labute once again takes on both directing and screenwriting duties, with his Some Velvet Morning lead Alice Eve returning for this outing as well. She is joined by Matthew Broderick this time around, and the synopsis of the film is as follows.

Colleagues Les (Matthew Broderick) and Natalie (Alice Eve) are delayed in the Albuquerque airport. Restless, irritated, and unable to stand the service workers he meets at every turn, Les heads downtown. Natalie refuses to leave his side and discovers that his supposedly aimless wandering »
