Catch-up TV guide: from It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia to John Kearns

26 May 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

All ten series of Danny DeVito’s totally tastless sitcom are on Netflix while double-Edinburgh-award-winning comedian John Kearns is over on iPlayer

TV’s most reliably tasteless sitcom returns for a 10th depraved outing, and going by the episode titles alone – take a bow, Mac Kills His Dad – it has no intention of moderating its excesses. Yet, to reduce It’s Always Sunny… to gross-out moments underplays just how funny it is, with the sardonic interplay between its leads still as bracingly fresh as it was a decade ago. Watch the lot on Netflix.

Renee Zellweger, Jamie Foxx, Michael Keaton Sing for Paul Newman’s ‘Kids’ (Photos)

15 May 2015 1:18 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

As a freak thunder and lighting storm struck Los Angeles on Thursday night, knocking out power in some neighborhoods, you would never have known it inside the Dolby Theatre. The home of the Oscars was soundproof to the outside world, proving that the Dolby DNA reaches deeper into the theatre’s bones than just the cosmetic naming rights might suggest. The acoustics allowed guests to hear from the ill children of the late Paul Newman’s network of camps and their celebrity camp counselors for the night, a group that included Renee Zellweger, Jamie Foxx, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Anjelica Huston, »

“The Serpent’s Bite” centers on a father attempting to reunite with his older children during a nostalgic horse trek through the wilds of Yellowstone. The story explores how an obsession for celebrity and blind ambition can distort familial love and turn a beloved child into a grotesque monster.

Camp will portray the adult daughter, Courtney Temple.

Other Grey Eagle projects include “The War of the Roses: The Children, »

Every Best Picture Oscar Winner, Ranked From Worst to Best

6 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

This week marks the 10th anniversary of the release of "Crash" (on May 6, 2005), an all-star movie whose controversy came not from its provocative treatment of racial issues but from its Best Picture Oscar victory a few months later, against what many critics felt was a much more deserving movie, "Brokeback Mountain."

The "Crash" vs. "Brokeback" battle is one of those lingering disputes that makes the Academy Awards so fascinating, year after year. Moviegoers and critics who revisit older movies are constantly judging the Academy's judgment. Even decades of hindsight may not always be enough to tell whether the Oscar voters of a particular year got it right or wrong. Whether it's "Birdman" vs. "Boyhood," "The King's Speech" vs. "The Social Network," "Saving Private Ryan" vs. "Shakespeare in Love" or even "An American in Paris" vs. "A Streetcar Named Desire," we're still confirming the Academy's taste or dismissing it as hopelessly off-base years later. »

Which of Arnold Schwarzenegger's movies is his favourite? The answer might surprise you

5 May 2015 2:41 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger has been one of the world's biggest box office attractions for 40 years, but which of his many blockbusters is his favourite?

A hilarious sketch on The Late Late Show with James Corden in which Schwarzenegger reenacted all of his famous roles was followed by a chat about the action icon's favourite movie.

The answer certainly surprised James Corden, who was perhaps expecting The Terminator, Predator or Total Recall to be the superstar's favourite film.

"I think Kindergarten Cop [is my favourite]," Schwarzenegger revealed to the surprise of the Late Late Show. "I think one of the comedies [would be my favourite] because for so many years, I tried to get into comedy and I couldn't.

"The studios made all this money from the action movies. They said, 'Why would we go and change the mould? We're making a lot of money with you. We keep giving you action scripts'.

From Actor to "Action!", Exploring the Debuts of 19 Actors-Turned-Directors

21 April 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Over the course of film history, we've seen plenty of long-time actors step behind the camera to take up their directorial ambitions. Clint Eastwood did it. Mel Gibson did it. George Clooney did it. What do these three have in commonc Well, for starters, they are all men, so there's that. Further, they are all white, but more on that later. More to the point of the article, these men all eased into their directorial careers by starring in their respective debuts, using their presence on screen to help market their talents off it. And with his feature directorial effort The Water Diviner, which hits limited theaters this week, Russell Crowe is just the most recent addition to a growing list of actors who have decided to try their hand behind the camera. Like Eastwood, Gibson, and Clooney before him, the Best Actor winner stars in his first feature as director, »

Waxing Episodic: Jim's generous nature made for a great 'Taxi' episode

17 April 2015 1:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In HitFix's new feature 'Waxing Episodic,' we reflect on an episode of television we'll never forget. Before he ever played Doc Brown, I was a raving Christopher Lloyd fan. We all have shows we love unreservedly. There are many TV shows that are important to me for many reasons. Many of my favorite shows are from recent years as television has hit a certain kind of stride, but the only reason we are where we are with television now is because of series that have pushed things forward in the past. There are shows that I love for single elements or single performances or even single moments. With "Taxi," though, I love the entire thing. Top to bottom, start to finish, I think it's one of the greatest shows to ever appear on television, and even trying to explain all the things I love about it would be a Herculean undertaking. »

Bye, Mom and Dad! Who needs familial love when there is An Adorable Soccer-ball Robot That Demands 100 Percent Of Your Heart? Yes, you might have caught your first glimpse of the cute li'l Bb-8 in that Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser from a few months ago, but J.J. Abrams rolled him out onstage this morning at Star Wars Celebration, and let's just say he made R2-D2 look like a passed-out Danny DeVito covered in burrs. Bb-8 is basically Wall-e crossed with Woola, and we simply cannot get enough. Look at these GIFs and try not to die of happiness. »

21 mainly forgotten Us number 1 movies from the 1990s

31 March 2015 8:24 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The 1990s: a time when Sleepwalkers, Burt Reynolds, No Escape, Chevy Chase and F/X/2 could top the Us box office...

By the 1990s, studios were waking up to movie marketing, and the era of the blockbuster. Tim Burton's Batman, released in summer 1989, had introduced the idea of a big opening weekend, and modern movies now target their promotional work to get just that. As such, it's harder and harder for smaller films to snare the top slot at the Us box office, even for one weekend.

In the 1990s, particularly the first half of the 1990s, that wasn't so much the case though. In fact, many films that have long since fallen from the public conscious topped the chart. And in this piece, I've tried to capture some of them.

Inevitably, you're going to have heard of some of them, and what a UK dweller sees as a »

Wright Was Earliest Surviving Best Supporting Actress Oscar Winner

15 March 2015 12:05 AM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Teresa Wright: Later years (See preceding post: "Teresa Wright: From Marlon Brando to Matt Damon.") Teresa Wright and Robert Anderson were divorced in 1978. They would remain friends in the ensuing years.[1] Wright spent most of the last decade of her life in Connecticut, making only sporadic public appearances. In 1998, she could be seen with her grandson, film producer Jonah Smith, at New York's Yankee Stadium, where she threw the ceremonial first pitch.[2] Wright also became involved in the Greater New York chapter of the Als Association. (The Pride of the Yankees subject, Lou Gehrig, died of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis in 1941.) The week she turned 82 in October 2000, Wright attended the 20th anniversary celebration of Somewhere in Time, where she posed for pictures with Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour. In March 2003, she was a guest at the 75th Academy Awards, in the segment showcasing Oscar-winning actors of the past. Two years later, »
