IFC Renews ‘Maron’ for Season 3

6 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

IFC has renewed Marc Maron’s comedy series “Maron” for season three. Production on 13 new half-hour episodes will begin this fall, and the show will return to IFC in the spring of 2015.

Each episode of the comedy offers a fictionalized look at Marc’s life, chronicling the man’s misguided attempts to grow.

“Usually Marc has a hard time maintaining long-term relationships, but luckily not with us,” said Jennifer Caserta, president of IFC. “He’s committed to bringing his wry humor and refreshing perspective back to IFC for a third season.”

“I am very proud of both seasons of the show and thrilled we’re doing another one,” said Maron. “Through all the episodes I can see the growth and evolution of the character, writing and comedy. I’m excited about getting back into the process. The character of Maron needs some work on and off screen and fortunately that’s what drives the show. »

Back to School with, um, Back to School

15 September 2014 9:31 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Andrew here with the late and last back to school entry, which makes sense because the 1986 mega-hit Back to School is all about heading back to school late.

Those first few back at school are always a hassle for students, sure. But, they’re probably not that simple for the educators, either. Think about it. It’s your first day teaching a new class of students. How do you make a great first impression so that they’re interested in your class, not just for the first day, but for the rest of the semester?               

With that in mind, watching both the students and lecturers at college navigate those first classes in Back to School become even more interesting. Sixty year old Thornton Melon heads back to university as a show of solidarity to prevent his disillusioned son from dropping out. He’s a virtual fish out of water adapting »

Chain Saw Massacre and Eaten Alive Actress Dead at 64

7 August 2014 7:11 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre’ actress Marilyn Burns dead at 64 The Texas Chain Saw Massacre actress Marilyn Burns, the one cast member who manages to survive Leatherface in Tobe Hooper’s low-budget 1974 horror cult classic, was found dead on Tuesday, August 4, 2014, at her home in the Houston area. According to her manager, "she was found unresponsive by a family member." The cause of death remains unclear. Burns (born on July 5, 1950, in Erie, Pennsylvania) was 64. The Houston-raised Marilyn Burns began appearing in films in the early ’70s. She had a bit part in Robert Altman’s Houston-filmed Brewster McCloud (1970), starring Bud Cort, Sally Kellerman, and Shelley Duvall, and was later cast in a supporting role in Sidney Lumet’s Austin-shot 1974 drama Lovin’ Molly; however, Burns was ultimately replaced by Susan Sarandon, reportedly remaining in the production as a stand-in for both Sarandon and Blythe Danner. Also in 1974, Marilyn Burns landed the »

Film Review: ‘Altman’

20 June 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Given the who’s-who of collaborators and acolytes of the late Robert Altman assembled for this feature-length tribute, it would have been all too easy for director Ron Mann to let the film turn into a loose, digressive — indeed, Altmanesque — jamboree of war stories and portable wisdom. But to great, stirring effect, “Altman” charts a different course, drawing on a wealth of existing material to tell the filmmaker’s story largely in his own, brashly eloquent words, and through generous clips from his massive, admittedly uneven, always uncompromising filmography. The result captures Altman the artist and the man, the one inseparable from the other, about as well as any two-hour film could hope to do. The pic makes its broadcast debut on Epix Aug. 6, following its June 20 premiere as part of the UCLA Film and Television Archive’s ongoing Altman retrospective.

The Healthy Helpers: The Top 10 Movie Nurses

20 June 2014 2:42 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Now what would the medical profession be like without the dependable skills of nursing in cinema? Sure, the doctors get their lion’s share of representation in the movies but what about the nurses that serve them? What is so interesting about the portrayal of nurses in film is that they can be characterized beyond the compassionate medical maidens that the public associates them with on a whim. Motion pictures allow for big screen nurses to show some complexity beyond loving bedside manners and juggling bedpans. Cinematic nurses can be caring, comical, crazed, confused or corrupt.

Whatever the complication or consideration of these celluloid servers of health care rest assure that they are a glorified bunch in their devotion to the medical field. Whether flawed or favorable we will take a look at some of the top-notch nurses in film as cited in The Healthy Helpers: The Top 10 Movie Nurses. »

The Sad History of Movies Being Made From 'Rocky & Bullwinkle' Characters

5 March 2014 3:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

This weekend's "Mr. Peabody and Sherman," a feature-length, 3D animated film from DreamWorks Animation, is already notable in the sense that it's the first film based on characters from the classic series "The Rocky & Bullwinkle Show" that doesn't look like it's going to be a huge financial disaster.

The spritely story of time traveling dog Mr. Peabody (this time voiced by Ty Burrell) and his "pet" human Sherman (Max Charles) is adapted from the "Peabody's Improbable History" segments of "The Rocky & Bullwinkle Show," and was directed by Rob Minkoff (it's his first animated feature since a movie we've never heard of called "The Lion King").

With "Frozen" finally exiting theaters and "The Lego Movie" losing some of its staying power, it looks like "Mr. Peabody and Sherman," a brightly colored, lively movie that will probably rake in some big box office. The premise is appealing and a number of parents »

Altman’s Unsung ’70s

20 January 2014 1:50 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Director Robert Altman had his fair share of ups and downs. The oscillation between works widely lauded and those typically forgotten is prevalent throughout his exceptionally diverse career. This was — and still is — certainly the case with his 1970s output. This decade of remarkable work saw the release of now established classics like M*A*S*H, Nashville, and McCabe & Mrs. Miller, as well as a picture like 3 Women, which would gradually gain a cult following of sorts and subsequently be regarded as a quality movie despite its initial dismissal. But couched between and around these features are more electric and generally more unorthodox films. There are multiple titles from this, arguably Altman’s most creative of decades, that remain generally unheralded to all but his most ardent of admirers.

For Altman, the 1970s began with this disparity. The first year of the decade saw the release of M*A*S*H, »
