25 July 2015 12:58 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Comedy Central’s popular sketch comedy series Key & Peele will officially be ending after this current season.

The show, which began its run in 2012, is now in its fifth season. The final episode of the series will air sometime in September.

‘Key and Peele’ to End After Current Season

25 July 2015 12:24 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Key & Peele Will End After This Season

25 July 2015 12:19 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Key & Peele, the acclaimed show that has been gracing Comedy Central for five seasons, will end its run this September, according to the Wrap.“This is our final season – and it’s not because of Comedy Central, it’s us,” Key said. “It was just time for us to explore other things, together and apart. I compare it to Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor. We might make a movie and then do our own thing for three years and then come back and do another movie.” He added, “I’m thinking we could do that every three years – take a year, go bang out a movie. That’s the plan right now.” The current season, which began airing July 8, displays a discernible shift in tone from the previous four. The first few seasons offered up copious amounts of yelling and clever bombast, drawing comparisons to Dave Chappelle’s brand of comedy. »

Sherlock Holmes: 10 offbeat takes on the Great Detective

29 June 2015 5:49 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From spoofs to point-and-click adventure games, here are 10 of the most memorable unusual incarnations of Sherlock Holmes...

We don’t know a great deal about the content of the 90-minute Sherlock special set to air later this year, but one thing has emerged from the set photos and tantalising titbits of information we’ve seen so far. Sherlock Holmes and John Watson will be in nineteenth-century garb, pitching them back into the setting of the legendary detective’s original adventures: 1895, to be precise. Why that happens is as yet unclear, but all will be revealed.

For those still craving their Holmes fix in the meantime, the new film Mr. Holmes offers us Ian McKellen’s take on the character, musing upon an old case as he looks back on his long career from the vantage point of retirement. Jonny Lee Miller’s ultra-modern, Us-based Sherlock will be entering his fourth »

Slow West movie review: dark horseplay

26 June 2015 4:12 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Michael Fassbender is never not worth watching, and his unique blend of cynical smarts and weary humor is perfectly suited to this bitterly funny road trip. I’m “biast” (pro): adore Michael Fassbender

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Michael Fassbender. What else do you need to know? Michael Fassbender is never not worth watching, and that remains the case in Slow West. This is basically The Frisco Kid — you remember, that 1979 comedy with Gene Wilder as a rabbi and Harrison Ford as the scoundrel who helps him get across the Old West to San Francisco — as remade by the Coen Brothers. It’s far more Coen Brothers than the Coens’ own actual Western remake, True Grit, in fact, and Fassbender’s unique blend of cynical smarts and weary humor is perfectly suited to this dry, bitter road trip through »

Which would you prefer, bees for eyebrows or knees made from turtle foreskins?

Vic: I don't believe turtles have foreskins. I don't believe they have genitalia. Bees are beautiful thing, so I'd probably use them for eyebrows. A giant hornet came into our house the other day, and you don't want to go near them. If they start invading, watch out England.

Take Two: Revisiting "Stir Crazy"

26 March 2015 3:29 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Our weekly series in which writers revisit for the first time in ages their youthful passions and reconsider how well they hold up with the passage of time. The late 1970’s were a glorious time to be first discovering movies. For a boy in his adolescence, there were of course the complete life-altering revelations of seeing “Jaws,” “Star Wars,” “Close Encounters” and eventually “Raiders” on opening day, surrounded by hundreds of other kids struck absolutely dumb at the spectacle before them. It was impossible to be young in those days and not become obsessed with the movies. But best of all were the comedies. It was an era when the genre was of re-inventing itself; moving out of the code restrictions that had hemmed comedy in since the dawn of Hollywood, the movies suddenly found itself let loose with acres of previously untouchable terrain to roam, and very few rules to guide them. »

Get Hard | Review

25 March 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The Harder They Fall: Cohen Takes Us Back To Racial Stereotypes of Yore

Screenwriter Etan Cohen makes his directorial debut with Get Hard, a crass, generally low-brow situational adult comedy that valiantly tries to disguise its extreme lack of taste and forethought with the personas of its popular comedic stars Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell. In hindsight, maybe there’s a reason that the regular helmer of these Ferrell crafted boy child comedies Adam McKay, who gets a story credit here, didn’t oversee the project, since it never overcomes the ridiculously crippling antiquation of its initial set-up.

Had this been made somewhere in the 1980s, where we saw a slew of titles grappling with topical issues of racial stereotypes like 48 Hours with Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy, and on the comedic front, several pairings of Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder, this would have seemed regressive even then.
