Blu-ray Review – The Frank Darabont Collection

26 February 2015 5:13 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Zachary Leeman reviews The Frank Darabont Collection…

Frank Darabont is a name not spoken nearly enough among film lovers. He can often go unappreciated despite being the man that directed IMDb’s top rated film and having originally developed one of television’s smash hits, The Walking Dead.

Despite being an artist of undeniable talent, there’s always something that has kept Darabont from getting the accolades he deserves. The Shawshank Redemption may be a hit now, but it was a flop upon first release, The Walking Dead got a new showrunner fast and some of his other films haven’t been able to muster the giant audiences a Spielberg or a Tarantino can earn from their names on posters.

However, with the new Frank Darabont Collection from Warner Bros., fans can take a few moments to appreciate an undersung hero of cinema. The collection contains three of Darabont’s »

‘Game of Thrones’ Season 4 DVD Set Slays Home Video Sales Charts

25 February 2015 6:58 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO’s eagerly awaited fourth-season set of hot TV series “Game of Thrones” debuted at No. 1 on both national home video sales charts the week ending Feb. 22, a banner week for new releases in which the top five sellers are all newcomers.

Bowing at No. 2 on both the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks overall disc sales, and Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart was Universal Pictures’ “Dumb and Dumber To,” the belated sequel to the 1994 slapstick classic that reunites original stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels and earned a respectable $86.2 million in U.S. theaters.

Sony Pictures’ controversial “The Interview” debuted at No. 3 on both charts, a ranking observers surmise might have been higher had the film not been available earlier via streaming (it became available on Netflix on Jan. 24) and online purchase. The comedy, about two journalists told to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un after getting an interview with him, »

See How a Jim Carrey Look-alike Tricked the Czech Oscars

24 February 2015 6:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Are we sure there were no imposters on stage at the Oscars this year? If there weren't, then Hollywood got off better than the Czech Republic, which had its equivalent of the Academy Awards in Prague this past Saturday. Someone claiming to be comedic actor Jim Carrey took to the stage of the Czech Lion Awards ceremony, and the guy got some quality airtime before producers realized they'd been duped. One of those producers is Czech filmmaker Jan Sverak, who won a foreign language Oscar for Kolya in 1997 (he was also nominated for The Elementary School and has a Student Academy Award, too). Why is that interesting? Because the real Carrey was a presenter at that ceremony and so maybe Sverak should have known better.  "We were the victims of an...

Fake Jim Carrey Crashes Czech Republic Lions Ceremony, Actor Jokes About the Mix-Up on Twitter

24 February 2015 3:32 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Things aren't always as they seem… Someone posing as Jim Carrey attended the Czech Lions Ceremony, which is equal to the Academy Awards in the Czech Republic, and completely fooled everyone! Jan Sverak, a film director who actually oversaw the entire event, explained that he was tricked by the hoax and apologized to viewers for the mix-up. "We have become very likely the target of a very elaborate hoax. I'm sorry," he told a crowd of reporters shortly after the ceremony aired. Even the show's host, Lucie Vyborna, thought that the man pretending to be the Dumb and Dumber star was real and insisted that Carey was in attendance at the Czech show. "Of course the »

Watch This Jim Carrey Impersonator Totally Fake Out An International Awards Show

24 February 2015 7:06 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The organizers of the Česky Lev awards in Prague are kicking themselves for being dumb (and dumber). They apparently don.t know what Jim Carrey looks like, as they mistook an imposter Carrey for the real thing. Not only that, but they brought him into the awards ceremony and out onto the stage to greet the audience in a shower of confetti. The story becomes even more embarrassing when you realize that this prestigious film awards ceremony is basically the Oscars of the Czech Republic. On the night before the Oscars went down in the U.S., the Czech Film and Television Academy said in a statement (via The Guardian) that they were "victims of an elaborate hoax." Basically what happened is that this guy, Hari Zinhasovic, had agents, a bodyguard and an interpreter, who were all communicating with the awards organizers. Since everything seemed legit . because, how could it »

Liar Liar: Watch terrible Jim Carrey impersonator fool Czech film awards

24 February 2015 1:29 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It can't be easy landing celebrities for an awards show the night before the Oscars, so the Czech Lion Awards must not have believed its luck when a representative for Jim Carrey got in touch to ask if the actor could attend.

However, if you look really, really closely, you might be able to tell there was something a bit dodgy about this particular 'Jim Carrey' when he took to the ceremony's stage.

The impostor made an awkward entrance, briefly waving to the nonplussed crowd before firing a confetti cannon and wandering off.

Despite initially insisting to baffled viewers that the individual on stage definitely was the Truman Show actor, members of the Czech Film and Television Academy (Cfta) eventually admitted that they had been fooled.

"Nothing indicated it was a ruse and we did not pay any money to the false actor," a spokesperson said.

Organisers of the Czech Republic's most prestigious film awards have apologised after giving VIP red carpet treatment to a conman who claimed to be Hollywood star Jim Carrey. Suited and booted and bearing only a passing resemblance to the Canadian actor, the hoaxer managed to fool officials into allowing him on stage at the Česky Lev (Czech Lion) awards in Prague, where he waved and was showered in golden confetti Continue reading »

Fake Jim Carrey Fools Czech Awards Show Organizers

23 February 2015 10:20 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Prague — The Czech Lions, the Czech Republic’s top national film kudos, have been struggling for primetime viewership of late — but this year’s edition has piqued international interest, thanks to an apparent scam by a mystery Jim Carrey impersonator.

The highlight of the first few minutes of the awards’ live broadcast on pubcaster Czech TV Saturday night was the introduction of Carrey by the show’s moderator, followed by the appearance of a tall, tuxedoed figure who strode onstage, offered a toothy grin and launched a tube of confetti glitter before quickly exiting the stage without a word.

Audience members looked bemused, many assuming the appearance was a film biz joke of the kind Czech galas often employ. But following the show, which gave its main prize to social drama “The Way Out,” host Jan Sverak initially insisted to inquiring reporters that the man was indeed Carrey.

Second Opinion – The Wedding Ringer (2015)

22 February 2015 12:55 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Wedding Ringer, 2015.

Directed by Jeremy Garelick.

Starring Kevin Hart, Josh Gad, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Olivia Thirlby, Ken Howard, Alan Ritchson, Dan Gill, Jorge Garcia, and Cloris Leachman.

Synopsis:

Two weeks shy of his wedding, a socially awkward guy enters into a charade by hiring the owner of a company that provides best men for grooms in need.

In a week which saw long-running NBC show Saturday Night Live celebrate its 40th anniversary as the staple of American comedy, it seems apt that a comedy starring Kevin Hart, who auditioned for the show a few years back similarly to Jim Carrey and Zach Galifianakis, is released. Like Ride Along and Think Like A Man, The Wedding Ringer relies heavily of Hart’s usual charm and comedic talents to carry a somewhat mediocre concept through to box office glory, but with a less than stellar box office take in the Us thus far (the No. »

Why Eddie Murphy Didn't Perform on the SNL Reunion

19 February 2015 2:30 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

To hear - or read - Norm MacDonald tell it, "Eddie Murphy knows what will work on SNL better than any one." And yet MacDonald couldn't convince Murphy to participate in the "Celebrity Jeopardy" skit during Sunday's mammoth Saturday Night Live reunion special on NBC. In a long series of Tweets late Wednesday, MacDonald waxed on about the history of the skit and how he and other other writers knew it would be comedy gold if Murphy agreed to participate as part of his homecoming to SNL. Murphy hadn't been back to Studio 8H in more than 30 years. "Among many other things, »

Did the 2005 Oscars get it right?

18 February 2015 9:35 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With the 2015 Oscars coming up this weekend, we go back ten years to see if the 2005 awards still hold up today...

It was during an interview with Mark Kermode that I asked him how long someone really needs to gestate on a film, and come up with a proper review. "About ten years", he said. I get his point. Each awards season, it's about, at best, what feels like the best film right then. Not the one that settles over a period of time, or shows you new things each time you watch it. But the one that you watched once, and affected you once. It's the only way, anyway, I can think of why A Beautiful Mind won a Best Picture Oscar.

This weekend, then, is the Academy Awards once more. And I thought it'd be worth rewinding ten years, to see whether the Academy's choices on February 27th »

Brian Williams-Less ‘Nightly News’ Holds on to Shrinking Ratings Lead

18 February 2015 7:39 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

For the first full week of Brian Williams‘ suspension, “NBC Nightly News” kept its ratings edge, beating ABC’s “World News Tonight” in viewers by a healthy margin while narrowly edging David Muir’s broadcast in the news demo. With Lester Holt anchoring, Nightly delivered 9,430,000 viewers compared to  9,032,000 million viewers for  Wnt, a 398,000 viewer advantage.

‘Dumb and Dumber To’ Honest Trailer Crushes the Comedy Sequel

18 February 2015 5:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

I was cautiously optimistic about Dumb and Dumber To. The Farrelly Brothers were due for a hit; they were revisiting the characters that made them famous; and both Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels were back for the ride. What could possibly go wrong? The answer is “everything,” as is very well explained in the Dumb and Dumber To Honest Trailer. […]

Dumb And Dumber To Blu-Ray Review

17 February 2015 9:57 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Either I have entirely too much time on my hands (I don’t), I’m a self-admitted masochist (getting warmer), or Dumb And Dumber To is so horrendously brain-numbing that I couldn’t let a Blu-Ray review opportunity pass me by. My colleague Robert Kojder already wrote a forgiving theatrical review of the appalling comedic atrocity that is Dumb And Dumber To, but I don’t agree that the Farrelly brothers do their most famous property right by way of a repetitive, self-referential sequel. Opinions make the world go ’round, but this is one time I had to make my side heard.

While I can’t exactly call Dumb And Dumber To the Mortdecai of 2014 (because I genuinely laughed, albeit three whole times), this soulless husk of a comedic effort reeks of cash-grab incentives around every previously-explored turn. There are moments where we pity Jim Carrey and *Emmy Winner* Jeff Daniels, »

The Losers: The Rare But Beautiful Film Scores of Jon Brion Deserve an Oscar

17 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

All this week, we’re celebrating the losers — those talented filmmakers whom Oscar has foolishly overlooked. In less than a minute of music, Jon Brion can prove he deserves more Oscars than he can carry. There’s a sequence in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind where Joel Barish (Jim Carrey) and Clementine Kruczynski (Kate Winslet) meet in a bookstore. We’ve journeyed through Joel’s memories as every trace of their relationship’s been wiped from his brain, and this moment — him asking her out for the first, first time — is one of the last. Their conversation starts off totally straight, like they barely know each other and this really is the beginning of their relationship. Until the music kicks in. Just as it does, the facade crumbles and Joel and Clementine are two lovers who know everything there is to know about the other. They enjoy this old memory for the last time, knowing »
