Addams Family Reunion: the sequel that time forgot

Simon Brew Nov 15, 2017

After Addams Family Values struggled at the box office, another film still followed a few years later. But Addams Family 3 this was not...

Were the world right, then in 1993, Addams Family Values would have got both the rich acclaim and enormous box office it merited. A deliciously playful sequel, it’s 94 minutes of tightly put together comedy, with a bunch of performers that come close to defining ‘perfectly cast’. Christina Ricci, clinging to a fence as she’s threatened with the Harmony Hut, remains a comedy highlight of 1990s cinema.

But the film didn’t really hit. As much as it was liked, its box office was less than half of the original. It was released the week before Mrs Doubtfire in the Us, and it was the latter that become the widely seen family comedy of Christmas 1993. Addams Family Values would do okay at best, but

Pinball FX3 Review

As someone who squandered a fair amount of his misspent youth dropping quarter after quarter into various pinball machines housed inside sketchy arcades across the United States, I’ve always appreciated Zen Studio’s deliriously enjoyable Pinball FX series. I’ve sunk countless hours into FX 2 over the years, usually after a long day at work when I just needed some time to unwind. While some might view pinball as an archaic form of entertainment — especially in the complicated realm of modern video games — I’ve always enjoyed the thrill of attempting to obliterate my high score on a table I thought I’d already mastered. Long story short: Pinball FX 2 embodied everything I wanted in a video game version of pinball, at least, until Zen Studio decided to unleash a follow-up.

The newest iteration of the long-running series introduces elements I never knew I’d always wanted. For example,

‘The Addams Family’ Gets Animated in a New CG Movie from ‘Sausage Party’ Co-Director

Originally created by cartoonist Charlie Addams back in 1938, The Addams Family has gone on to enjoy a number of successful adaptations over the years. In 1964, a live-action TV series starring John Astin and Carolyn Jones as Gomez and Morticia Addams came to ABC, with a Halloween TV movie inspired by the show airing in 1977. The fearsome family saw a revival of sorts in the early 90s with a pair of live-action films starring Raul Julia, Anjelica Huston, Christopher Lloyd and Christina Ricci. The series was rebooted once more in the late 90s with Tim Curry

Addams Family Animated Movie Gets Sausage Party Director

Addams Family Animated Movie Gets Sausage Party Director
After languishing in development for years, MGM is finally moving forward with its The Addams Family animated adaptation, bringing on director Conrad Vernon (Sausage Party) to take the helm. The filmmaker has also been brought on to produce the movie, alongside The Jackal Group's Gail Berman and Alex Schwartz. CG animation work is already under way in Vancouver, but MGM hasn't announced a release date, so it may be quite some time before it hits theaters, but it looks like it's finally on the right track after several years in development.

MGM Studios announced this project back in 2013, setting writer Pamela Pettler (The Corpse Bride) to write the script. Andrew Mittman and Kevin Miserocchi were initially attached as producers at the time, but now they are executive producing, with MGM's executive director Tabitha Shick overseeing the project. Matt Lieberman (Dr. Dolittle: Tail to the Chief) provided revisions on Pamela Pettler's screenplay,

Film Review: ‘Cold Moon’

Film Review: ‘Cold Moon’
An eccentric mix of veteran actors, Southern Gothicism and neo-noir lends “Cold Moon” a certain charm as a ghostly revenge thriller. This handsome-looking potboiler is well-crafted on various planes, even if telepic and direct-to-video helmer Griff Furst’s mostly game-upping latest feature is also occasionally at tonal odds with the screenplay’s campier “Creepshow”-type horror aspects. Nonetheless, as guilty pleasures go, this one rates a solid B.

Orphaned Jerry Larkin (Chester Rushing) is a sober-minded youth attentive to the financial plight of grandmother Evelyn (Candy Clark) and their family’s Florida blueberry farm — in contrast to high-spirited sister Margaret (Sara Catherine Bellamy). Galavanting around on her bicycle long past when she’s due home, Margaret is attacked by a mysterious, hearse-driving figure on her belated return. He throws her over a bridge, then leaps over himself to ensure she drowns. Afterward, a coroner discovers the 16-year-old was four months pregnant.

The Sound Echoes Off a Stale Plot: A Film Review

*full disclosure: an online screener of The Sound was provided by the film's publicity arm. **there are spoilers here. Director/writer: Jenna Mattison. Cast: Rose McGowan, Christopher Lloyd and Michael Eklund. Sometimes, reviews serve as a warning. That is the case with Jenna Mattison's The Sound. Her sophomore feature is a cliche-ridden, very flawed feature. The plot barely progresses from paranormal skeptic, investigating an underground subway tunnel. Instead, it stalls out through much of Act I and II, even into the final act. Barely anything happens as Kelly, played by Rose McGowan, struggles with her own mental instability and disbelief. Meanwhile, the protagonist is nearly one dimensional. And, this viewer wonders, with the lack of scares and gore: who is this horror film was really meant for? Maybe, there is a growing child horror fan base, out there. For everyone else, you need to skip the subway train station that says: "The Sound.

‘Cold Moon’ Review

Stars: Josh Stewart, Christopher Lloyd, Robbie Kay, Candy Clark, Frank Whaley, Tommy Wiseau, Madison Wolfe, Laura Cayouette | Written and Directed by Griff Furst

In a sleepy southern town, the Larkin family suffers a terrible tragedy. Now the Larkin’s are about to endure another: Traffic lights blink an eerie warning, a ghostly visage prowls in the streets, and graves erupt from the local cemetery in an implacable march of terror . . . And beneath the murky surface of the river, a shifting, almost human shape slowly takes form to seek a terrible vengeance.

At first glance Cold Moon looks like most other by the numbers horror/thrillers, with a cast of people you will recognize straight away but take a while to place where from. However give it a minute because this movie has some really stellar performances from the core cast which – considering the concept is just bonkers enough to take

A Nurse Ratched origin series is coming to Netflix

Tony Sokol Kirsten Howard Sep 7, 2017

A One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest prequel series about Nurse Ratched is heading to Netflix, starring Sarah Paulson...

The best thing we can do is go on with our daily routine. The meeting was adjourned and the vote was closed, and Netflix is pre-empting the last game of the World Series to bring a Nurse Ratched series to TV.

American Horror Story’s Ryan Murphy and Sarah Paulson will reunite for a new prequel show focusing on the origins of One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest’s top psychiatric administrator.

Paulson will play a younger version of the emotionally-distant Salem State Hospital nurse, who was introduced in Ken Kesey's 1962 novel. In the original film, Nurse Ratched was played by Louise Fletcher, who won an Academy Award for Best Actress for it. Fletcher had only acted once in the 13 years before she was cast.
