The Top Five Eddie Murphy Scenes in 80s Movies

Back in the 80’s Eddie Murphy was one of the funniest actors hands down and there was no two ways about it. The movies he came out in were either edgy and cool or were just flat out hilarious. Some of them didn’t sit well with a lot of people but they became the favorite of others that happened to like the foul language and the jokes that they complemented. Other roles weren’t as filled with vulgar words but were still just as memorable and were something that helped build Murphy’s credibility as a serious actor. To date he’s been

  • TMZ
[[tmz:video id="0_z3sabgav"]] Nicole Murphy is a sight to behold ... a woman whose defiance against looking old is one for the ages.

10 Directors to Watch: Adil El Arbi & Bilall Fallah Bring Street Cred to Belgian Cinema

10 Directors to Watch: Adil El Arbi & Bilall Fallah Bring Street Cred to Belgian Cinema
El Arbi and Fallah were the only two Moroccan-born students in their Belgian film school. While their white peers aspired to fine art, they dreamed of Hollywood.

Inspired by gritty crime dramas with a fondness for spectacle, the pair took to the streets with cameras. They made a feature, a short, some TV and in 2015, they won the Toronto film festival’s Discovery Award for their second feature, “Black,” a streetwise spin on Romeo and Juliet, set in Brussels.

Their latest, “Gangsta” (Aka “Patser,” which is Flemish for “show-off”), is in post-production. A humorous drug-deal-gone-bad caper in the Guy Ritchie vein, it plays like “Amélie” on crack.

“We got a lot of help from the city of Antwerp on this one,” El Arbi says. “We’re lucky they don’t read the scripts, because the city gets trashed. People don’t realize that Antwerp is worse than what we depict.”

They fuse amped-up visuals with authentic,

Netflix’s ‘The Indian Detective’ Elevates Russell Peters, And His Comedic Take on Identity, Beyond Stand-up Into Stardom
Identity is a prevalent theme in Russell Peters’ stand-up, and it also serves as the launch pad for the laughs in “The Indian Detective,” his new four-episode series now streaming on Netflix.

“Identity comedy is universal. I may be talking about my Indian parents, but I know that my ‘Indian’ parents are the same as everyone’s parents in some way — Greek, Italian, Arab, Chinese,” Peters said. “That’s what my audience is responding to. I’m also exploring race and culture, and a lot of people aren’t comfortable with that.”

In “The Indian Detective,” Peters stars as Toronto Police constable Doug D’Mello, a man desperate to prove his salt and be promoted to detective, but instead winds up suspended following a bust gone wrong. Through a guilty ploy by his father (Anupam Kher), he heads to Mumbai during his repose where a pretty girl (Mishqah Parthiephal) leads

Classic Eddie Murphy Movie “48 Hrs” is Getting a Remake

In the late 1980s, Eddie Murphy was really hitting his stride in the comedy world. With some very successful standup specials and some blockbuster films under his belt, he seemed like he was in just about every movie that Hollywood was putting out. So where did audiences first get a chance to really see Murphy in a comedy role? That would be his portrayal of recently paroled Reggie Hammond who is reluctantly forced into helping a cop to catch a serial killer. This film, entitled 48 Hrs., stars both Murphy and Nick Nolte as the unlikely duo to help solve

Eddie Murphy's 1982 Buddy-Cop Film 48 Hrs. is Getting a Remake

Since Hollywood is running out of ideas, they are looking at remaking a 1982 film called 48 Hrs. with Eddie Murphy and Nick Nolte. The film is a buddy-cop comedy that helped launch the career of Murphy. The story followed a convict and cop who are forced to team up to catch a pair of cop killers within 48 hours.

The original movie, which was produced by Joel Silver, is entertaining and has some fun moments but it's far from being a great film. I'm not sure why anyone would want to remake this film because there's nothing original or unique about it. Films like this are a dime a dozen. Here's the trailer for the original film, in case you're not familiar with it:

The remake is set up at Paramount Players and it will be developed by the same team who brought us Robert Pattinson's crime thriller Good Time, Benny and Josh Safdie,

48 Hours to get the remake treatment from the makers of Good Time

Benny and Josh Sadfie are riding the wave of success off the back of the Robert Pattinson crime drama Good Time by signing on to remake Eddie Murphy and Nick Nolte cop/convict buddy flick 48 Hours.

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that comedian Jerrod Carmichael (NBC’s The Carmichael Show) will co-write the script along with Ronald Bronstein, who also wrote Good Time with Josh Safdie.

The Walter Hill directed 48 Hours was at the forefront of the R-rated buddy movie in the early 80s. It saw Murphy and Nolte play to type as wisecracker and gruff cop, who teamed up to hunt down a pair of cop-killers. The film was a huge hit at the time, grossing $79m at the domestic box-office.

With the recent confirmation of Lethal Weapon 5 it appears that the buddy movie could be making something of a non-ironic comeback. With this in mind, what other properties
