Last week's episode of Nashville was pretty bonkers, what with Deacon and Avery's buddy comedy adventure and Olivia Wentworth's failed attempt to seduce Juliette shooting out of left field. Because Nashville, for all its soapy tropes, struggles to find solid ground as a legitimately compelling drama, it's moments like Will kicking the Texas-sized shit out of some homophobe Neanderthals and Juliette's razor-sharp one-liners that make the show a fun ride. But last night's Eric Stoltz-directed episode – "Hanky Panky Woman" – was the opposite: Painfully predictable.

1997's giant snake feature "Anaconda" was a straight up creature feature about a "National Geographic" film crew taken hostage by an insane Paraguayan hunter who is out to capture the world's largest snake. Jennifer Lopez, Jon Voight, Ice Cube, Own Wilson, Eric Stoltz, and Danny Trejo starred.
"Boston Legal" creator David E. Kelly wrote 1999's "Lake Placid" about a giant crocodile terrorising an idyllic lake in the United States. The cast included Bridget Fonda, Bill Pullman, Oliver Platt, Brendan Gleeson, Mariska Hargitay and a foul-mouthed Betty White.
Both turned out to be solid little earners from relatively tight budgets. As a result, increasingly silly and lesser seen sequels were greenlit - both franchises ending up with four entires, almost all of which went direct to disc.
Now, rights to both franchises have ended up at »

The Lake Placid and Anaconda franchises are set to collide in the upcoming feature Lake Placid Vs. Anaconda. Production is slated to begin this December in Bulgaria, although it isn't known who is writing, directing or starring in this direct-to-video release.
No story details have been confirmed, although the vicious crocodiles of Lake Placid will undoubtedly come in contact with a gigantic Anaconda, and they will have an epic water battle unlike anything seen before.
The Anaconda franchise was launched in 1997 with a theatrical feature that starred Jennifer Lopez, Ice Cube and Jon Voight. It spanwned the straight-to-video sequels Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid (2004), Anaconda 3: The Offspring (2006) and Anaconda 4: Trail of Blood (2009).
1999's Lake Placid was also a theatrical offering, starring Bill Pullman, Bridget Fonda and Oliver Platt, before spawning the straight-to video sequels Lake Placid 2 (2007), Lake Placid 3 (2010) and last year's Lake Placid: The Final Chapter. »

We train our sights on the year 1996, and the 25 underappreciated films it has to offer...
Independence Day managed to revive both the alien invasion movie and the disaster flick in 1996, and just about every other mainstream picture released that year lived in its saucer-shaped shadow.
Yet beyond the aerial battles of Independence Day, the flying cows in Twister, and the high-wire antics of Tom Cruise in Brian De Palma's Mission: Impossible, there sat an entire library of lesser-known and underappreciated movies.
As part of our attempts to highlight the unsung greats of the 90s, here's our selection of 25 such films from 1996 - the year chess champion Garry Kasparov lost to the might of the computer Deep Blue, and the year comedy star Jim Carrey starred in an unexpectedly dark tale of obsession...

It's been filmed with Katharine Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor and Winona Ryder, but its been 20 years since the last Little Women and Sony have deemed it high time for a revisit. Louisa May Alcott's classic novel is being adapted on this occasion by newcomer Olivia Milch (daughter of Deadwood's David).The book, as you'll be aware (if only from watching Friends), revolves around the March family: a household of four sisters and their mother ("Marmee"), with Father March away being a chaplain in the American War of Independence. The story takes in the girls' governessing, learning the piano, ice skating, having snowball fights, catching scarlet fever and getting married. Jo is the cool one, Meg is the mumsy one, Beth is the quiet one and Amy is the young one. The saga continued in Good Wives, Little Men and Jo's Boys.The last film version was Sony's too, with Ryder, »

Here are 25 more great, unsung films - this time, from the year 1994...
Yes, 1994. The year cinemas were dominated by such whimsical wonders as The Lion King, Forrest Gump, The Mask and, erm, True Lies. It was also the year Gump dominated the Academy Awards, and Four Weddings And A Funeral loomed large at the Baftas.
As ever, there was so much more to the year's cinematic landscape than Tom Hanks' park bench ramblings or Hugh Grant mithering from beneath his gorgously crafted hair. To prove it, here's a list of 25 films that, in our estimation, are among its most underappreciated. There's much horror, drama, tears and laughter, plus a couple of classic documentaries, too.
On Blue, which will debut on the Wigs YouTube channel, Stiles plays a single mother trying to protect her son from the consequences of her secret career as an escort. The third season finds Blue getting a little too close to a client (Stoltz).
TVGuide.com has the exclusive first look at the duo in action on Wigs...

Grantland has been releasing short documentaries online to accompany the second round of Espn's sports doc series "30 for 30," and the latest one comes from an unexpected name -- Tate Donovan. The "Damages" and "The O.C." star has, like fellow actors Andrew McCarthy and Eric Stoltz, been directing television episodes steadily for the past few years, but "Arthur & Johnnie," below, is his first venture into doc filmmaking. The 12-minute short is a first-person account from Johnnie Ashe, who after completing his first Vietnam War tour as a Marine volunteered to be re-deployed in the place of his sibling so that Arthur could continue playing tennis at home. Watch the film below:

Under any circumstances, the press tour panel for Fox's "Dads" was going to be an awkward affair. The live-action comedy from Seth MacFarlane and fellow "Family Guy" writers Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild stars Seth Green and Giovanni Ribisi as best friends and business partners whose estranged fathers (Peter Riegert and Martin Mull) breeze into town and offend everyone with their old-school attitudes. Among other gags, it has Mull dubbing a boxing video game "Punch the Puerto Rican," has Riegert offended by being mistaken for the Eric Stoltz character in "Mask," and has Green and Ribisi convincing an employee played by »

An open thread where you can share what you’ve recently watched, offer suggestions on movies and TV shows we should check out (or warnings about stuff to avoid), and discover queue-filling goodies from other Fsr readers. The comments section awaits. I’ll get the ball rolling. Pulp Fiction is on Netflix streaming, which is an incredible gift for obsessives who want to examine every nook and cranny like it’s the Zapruder Film. I hadn’t seen it in quite a while, but even though so much of it has entered into the pop culture lexicon, the revisit was as sharp and hip as ever. Or maybe that’s because only stuff like Royales with Cheese, Bible verses and $5 Milkshakes entrenched themselves into quote repetition. It made me wonder if people saying they’ll go “Medieval” on someone remember (or realize) that Marsellus Wallace says the line after being anally raped with a red ball gag »

Me: Hey Paul, I’d love to go to that Comic Con thingy. It’s a dream of mine don’t you know?
Paul: Really! Me too Craigy.
Me: You think you might be able to to get us there next year?
Paul: I don’t see why not. Lets do this!
The above (rough) conversation I had with our legendary leader around November last year during a meeting with a couple of close friends. What the fuck were we thinking… well, that really translates to the following:
Me: Fancy fucking off to San Diego on a lads holiday to laugh at people?
Paul: Damn right. I’m getting pissed though.
Me: I expect nothing less.
Paul: I wear tight tops and purple socks. That okay?
Me: Yeah. Whatever floats your boat matey. Besides I have Scarface trainers (that’s sneakers for our American friends). I think that’s as stylish as I get. »

Witty, insightful and unapologetically New York, are just a few ways writer-director Noah Baumbach has been described. Born and raised in Park Slope, Brooklyn, Baumbach made his writing and directing debut with Kicking and Screaming, immediately drawing comparisons to both Woody Allen and Whit Stillman. Through his seminal film, he’s received an Academy Award nomination for his original screenplay The Squid and the Whale, and garnered critical acclaim for Margot at the Wedding and his recent black-and-white salute to the French New Wave, Frances Ha. We here at Sound On Sight are huge fans of the filmmaker, so we decided to rank his films from favourite to least favourite. Here are the results.
Note: Since only one writer voted for Highball, we’ve decided to not include a capsule review.
6: Mr. Jealousy
After a debut Kicking and Screaming that was insightful, moving, and endlessly witty, Baumbach’s second »
Ever wonder what would have happened if Robert Zemeckis had stuck with Eric Stoltz and never brought in Michael J. Fox to take on the role of Marty McFly? Considering “Back to the Future” is a supreme piece of cinema, perhaps not, but don’t worry because filmmaker David Guy Levy did that work for you. Levy is here at San Diego Comic Con with a comic book called “Back to Back to the Future,” a piece that considers what might go down should the “Back to the Future” filmmakers go back in time to keep Eric Stoltz in the role of Marty McFly. It’s a fun idea and clearly “Back [ Read More ]

Great Scott! Did you know that 28 years ago this weekend Back to the Future was released in cinemas in the Us?
One of the finest films of the 1980s, it made a star out of its DeLorean and shot Michael J Fox to fame as time-travelling teenager Marty McFly. To mark this birthday for one of our all-time favourites, here are 28 reasons why Digital Spy hearts Back to the Future.
1. The opening scene
After an intricate camera sweep across ticking clocks, the film literally explodes into life as wannabe rock star Marty strums a Dolby-exploding guitar chord.
2. The DeLorean
This gull-winged sports car - modified by Doc Brown for temporal displacement - became the iconic image of the series. Production on the Dmc-12 stopped in 1982 as the company went into liquidation, but the vehicle lives on in pop culture thanks to Robert Zemeckis's movie.
3. The Flux Capacitor
"You were »
Back to Back to the Future #1 was a very well paced comic book with a simple flowing narrative, well-written dialogue and an intriguing premise. While the second issue does share a lot of the positives of its predecessor, it's poor pacing really knocks it down in terms of quality story telling.
None of the panels are really given a chance to breathe and monumental scenes like the 2013 Bob and Melora meeting their younger selves just feel like insignificant foot notes. There is a massive amount of exposition crammed into a few speech bubbles, which can make it »
