Exclusive Interview with filmmaker Robert Rodriguez

21 June 2016 11:24 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Robert Rodriguez interview

Movie director Robert Rodriguez is one of our favourites. His resume includes DesperadoSin City, The FacultySpy Kids, From Dusk Till Dawn, Planet Terror and Machete, and eclectic range of genre films that all hit the right spot.

Rodriguez is somewhat of a maverick film director. He’s not one to play by the expected rules of the movie world, be that in what he puts on the screen or how he interacts with his peers. During his career he has left both the screen writers and directors guild in favour of blazing his own path. His latest venture has been to create his own television network ‘El Rey’ which caters to a Latin American audience.

He used the platform to bring back a project from his past From Dusk Till Dawn; the film starred George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino as brothers and criminal Seth and Richard Gecko. »

The Simple Act of Eating Could Kill Three Utah Siblings with Rare Condition: 'Food Literally Means Life or Death,' Says Dad

21 June 2016 12:25 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

What to eat for dinner is a nightly headache for a Utah family, where all three children are allergic to multiple foods and could become deathly ill with even one bite of pizza or a single sip of fruit juice. Breakfast and lunch is no easy proposition either for the Frisk kids: Jaxen, 11, Tieler, 9, and Boston, 6, of the town of American Fork. "It's scary - eating the wrong thing could kill you in our house," their mother, Jenny Frisk, 33, a former loan and title insurer, tells People. "An average mealtime for us can take over two hours.

How did 'Veep' pull off last night's documentary episode?

20 June 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Last night's Veep was a format-breaking episode presented as the long-gestating documentary Selina's daughter Catherine had been filming all season. It not only detailed the results of the electoral tie-breaker vote in the House of Representatives, but cast new light on a lot of events we had witnessed earlier in the season. I spoke with Veep showrunner David Mandel about how and why they pulled off the documentary episode, coming up just as soon as I make a call from an elementary school classroom... You set up Catherine doing the documentary early in the season. Did you know then that it would become the frame for a whole episode? David Mandel: Yeah. It's a little chicken and the egg, in terms of which part came first. I think I was partially inspired by some of the episodes like the testimony episode, and the interview episode they've done in the past. »

UnREAL Recap: Bring in the Ringer

13 June 2016 8:03 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Need to catch up? Check out last week’s UnREAL recap of the Season 2 premiere, “War.”

“Just grab the craziest one, and do your thing.”

In case you had any doubt about whether UnREAL‘s Rachel retains any amount of control over Everlasting — especially in the wake of Quinn’s sly re-takeover last week — the sentiment above should clear things up promptly (and kinda bitchily).

The worst/best part? The newly demoted Ep does exactly as her boss says, slinking back into her dirty-hair, kicked-puppy role and giving even more momentum to the lopsided tilt-a-whirl that is their abusive relationship… »

‘Point Break’ (2015) Review

8 June 2016 6:38 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Luke Bracey, Edgar Ramirez, Ray Winstone, Teresa Palmer, Matias Varela, Clemens Schick, Tobias Santelmann, Max Thieriot, Delroy Lindo | Written by Rick King, W. Peter Iliff, Kurt Wimmer | Directed by Ericson Core

Now I’m not that adverse to remakes and reboots as some and, if I’m honest, the 1991 version of Point Break is not as special to me as it is to others – in fact Bigelow’s film never really gelled with me, so I approached this redux with a really open mind. Turns out I shouldn’t have bothered!

Taking its cue from Kathryn Bigelow’s original movie, this remake of Point Break once again tells the story of Johnny Utah (Bracey), a young FBI agent who infiltrates a cunning team of thrill-seeking elite athletes – led by the charismatic Bodhi (Ramirez) – who are suspected of carrying out a spate of crimes in extremely unusual ways…

Sharknado 4 Trailer Has Strippers Fighting Sharks in Las Vegas

1 June 2016 5:25 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After invading both the West and East Coasts in the first three movies, the Sharknado sensation is heading to the Las Vegas desert in Sharknado: The 4th Awakens. Last month, Syfy took advantage of Star Wars Day (May 4) to debut a new, yet very familiar poster for this sequel, which spoofed last year's blockbuster Star Wars: The Force Awakens. With just under two months left until this sequel debuts, the network has debuted a new trailer, which shows how some of Sin City's finest strippers and Elvis impersonators defend themselves from this onslaught of sharks.

Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) and April Wexler (Tara Reid) reprise their roles from the first three Sharknado movies, with Gary Busey signing on to play April's father. Sharknado: The 4th Awakens takes place five years after the East Coast was ravaged in last summer's Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!. Fin (Ziering »

Robert Altman's murder tale reeks of insider access and Hollywood hipster Bs; its main claim to greatness is its fifty-plus star cameos. It may no longer seem as smart as it looked in 1992, but they don't make 'em any slicker than this. The Player Blu-ray The Criterion Collection 812 1992 / Color /1:85 widescreen / 124 min. / Available through The Criterion Collection / Street Date May 24, 2016 / 39.95 Starring Tim Robbins, Greta Scacchi, Fred Ward, Whoopi Goldberg, Peter Gallagher, Brion James, Cynthia Stevenson, Vincent D'Onofrio, Lyle Lovett. Cinematography Jean Lépine Original Music Thomas Newman Written by Michael Tolkin from his novel Produced by David Brown, Michael Tolkin, Nick Wechsler Directed by Robert Altman

Reviewed by Glenn Erickson

Robert Altman's filmography is undergoing what looks like a full retrospective through Criterion; even the 1975 title Nashville came out not long ago. This very successful later picture marks a revitalization of the director's career. It's sort of a Kafkaesque spin on Hail, »

Review: With a name like 'C**tgate,' this 'Veep' episode's gotta be good

29 May 2016 8:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's Veep coming up just as soon as Enya sends me a pre-emptive cease-and-desist letter... The marketing for Smucker's Jelly used to use the tagline, "With a name like Smucker's, it's gotta be good," implying that the name was so questionable, only a truly superior product could overcome it(*). Different logic applies in the case of tonight's Veep episode, but the sentiment itself is the same: with a name like "C**tgate," it's gotta be good. And it was. (*) This would be famously parodied on an early SNL episode, with a fake ad that started with the brand name Fluckers, then eventually expanded to lines like "With a name like Painful Rectal Itch, you gotta bet that it's great!"  The eponymous scandal was a delight, as the matter of who called Selina the worst word you can call a woman quickly turned into the climax of Murder on the Orient Express, »

Upfronts 2016: The Best, Worst and Weirdest Moments of TV’s Marathon Week

20 May 2016 1:27 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

TV’s jam-packed marathon week in New York City came to a close in the wee hours of Friday morning, finally shut down by a few stalwarts grooving on the dance floor at CW’s annual private party at Park Avenue Spring.

Ad buyers were wined and dined throughout the week, as network execs did their best to sell their new shows. This year’s Upfronts saw some big changes from last year — some for the better, and some, well, not so much.

Here is the good, the bad and the worst of Upfronts 2016:

Best triple-threat: “Quantico” star Priyanka Chopra opened up ABC’s Upfront presentation with a song-and-dance number that proved she’s an absolute star. The former Miss World may have just launched her “Priyanka for ‘Dancing With the Stars'” campaign.

Worst shoutout: But we couldn’t help but cringe when Chopra kissed up to her »

Jimmy Kimmel’s Best Lines From the ABC Upfront

17 May 2016 2:15 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Jimmy Kimmel took aim at competitors and colleagues alike in his annual appearance at ABC’s upfront presentation Tuesday in New York.

Here are some of his best lines:

On the exec shakeup that saw Channing Dungey replace Paul Lee as ABC Entertainment head in March: “This is kind of our family reunion every year. Where’s Uncle Paul? Oh that’s right, I forgot…. I hate to see anyone especially a British person lose his dental plan.” “Channing Dungey is too humble to mention that she’s the first female African-American network president ever to pick up a show about a talking dog.” On Fox’s decision to no longer release live-same-day ratings: “Their arguments would carry more weight if they were not in last place. It’s like the Knicks announcing they are no longer using the final score — it doesn’t reflect the reality of the modern basketball game. »

Fox Teases More ‘X-Files': ‘I Believe Everyone Is on Board’

16 May 2016 6:37 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Fox co-CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman discussed the network’s fall and midseason schedules Monday morning during an upfronts conference call for press. They also spoke about shows that weren’t on their schedules, most notably more “X-Files.” But that doesn’t mean Mulder and Scully won’t return — it just means that isn’t happening in time for this coming fall or spring. Walden actually believes they’ll have “something exciting” to announce about the franchise this time next year, for the network’s 2017 upfront, which suggests the next run of episodes would come in the 2017-2018 season. »
