10 Great Buddy Cop Movies Not Written or Directed By Shane Black

20 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To coincide with the release of The Nice Guys, Kieran Fisher recommends 10 other buddy cop movies worth checking out…

This weekend marks the release of Shane Black’s new film The Nice Guys, starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe as a law enforcement duo investigating a missing persons case.  It also sees Black return to his roots, having rose to prominence in 1987 with his buddy cop action comedy Lethal Weapon.  That film would serve as a progenitor for other films centred around the friendships of law men, which included The Last Boy Scout and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.  When it comes to films of this ilk, Black is the undisputed king, but he’s not the only one responsible for giving us some gems throughout the years.  This list recommends some of that are well worth your time.

Film Review: Approach of ‘Money Monster’ is Pure Fraud

12 May 2016 6:50 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – In our society there is one eternal truth…the rich will Always win, that’s one of the reasons that they are rich. So when “Money Monster” attempts to take them down a peg with a ridiculous fantasy story, it’s as fraudulent as what they think they’re bringing down. An oligarch watches this, and laughs at us.

Rating: 1.0/5.0

What was surprising, and distressing, was that George Clooney was involved in this project. He has made reliably stick-it-to-the-man films for years (“Confessions of a Dangerous Mind,” “Good Night, and Good Luck,” “The American”), but in this one he doesn’t have a character, or at least a character that has a placeholder in reality. Everything else is just window dressing – the direction from Jodie Foster, the horrid screenplay by three writers. and a throwaway role for Julia Roberts that someone like Téa Leoni could have done, and that »

Marti Noxon to Adapt 'Dietland' for TV; Noxon and Barbara Hall Signs Development Deals

18 February 2016 11:00 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

A couple of TV heavyweights have inked overall deals.  Marti Noxon, a co-creator of Lifetime's "UnReal" and an Ep on "Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce," has signed a seven-figure, three-year deal with Skydance to create new projects. In good news for anyone who likes their feminist entertainment barbed and gleefully button-pushing, Noxon's first project under the new deal is a TV adaptation of Sarai Walker's (fantastic) fat-activist, feminist-revenge novel "Dietland."   Over at the networks, "Madam Secretary" showrunner Barbara Hall has signed a two-year deal with CBS Television Studios. Now in its second year, "Madam Secretary," starring Tea Leoni, averages 12.5 million viewers and is one of TV's top ten script series. Hall will continue to oversee the drama while developing new projects for CBS.

‘Madam Secretary’ Creator Barbara Hall Inks Overall Deal with CBS TV Studios

17 February 2016 2:32 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS Television Studios is expanding the relationship with one of its longstanding creators, Barbara Hall.

The “Madam Secretary” creator has signed an overall deal with CBS Television Studios, Variety has learned. Under the two-year pact, Hall will continue to run the show while developing new projects.

Hall’s relationship with CBS dates back decades. Prior to “Madam Secretary,” Hall created the network’s series “Judging Amy,” which ran six seasons, and “Joan of Arcadia,” which ran for two. She also served on a writer on “Newhart” in the ’80s and “Northern Exposure” in the early ’90s.

Currently in its second season, “Madam Secretary,” starring Téa Leoni, is averaging 12.47 million viewers, ranking among the top 10 scripted programs this season. Though there is no word on a third season, with Hall’s new deal, it seems likely the political drama will land a renewal.

Hall is repped by UTA, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and Ziffren. »

‘The X-Files’ Episode 5 Recap: Babylon Falls

15 February 2016 6:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler alert: This recap contains plot details for the fifth episode of “The X-Files,” titled “Babylon.”

Combining a dull terrorism investigation with leaden comedy, faux spirituality and an ill-advised honky-tonk dance sequence, Monday’s fifth episode of “The X-Files” reboot is arguably one of the most misguided entries in the series’ history. Not since Kathy Griffin guest-starred in the notoriously unfunny seventh season episode “Fight Club” has the show missed the mark this far in terms of tone and style.

Written and directed by Chris Carter, the episode – titled “Babylon” – begins with a young Muslim man’s afternoon prayer. In case we’re not sure that this is meant to be suspicious, the ominous music, moody shadows and low-angle framing lets us know from the very first second that he’s up to no good.
