Legion Recap: Sweet Dreams

22 February 2017 8:03 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Need to catch up? Check out the previous Legion recap here.

Another week of Legion, another week of delving into the thicket of repressed angst that is David’s brain. But things got even wilder this week… and more dangerous for everyone involved.

David is still worried about his sister Amy, who’s being interrogated by that Phil Spector-looking creep, The Eye. But he dives back into more memory work with Melanie, who promises they’ll speed things up by focusing on big events. (“The s—t that scares you the most,” as Ptonomy puts it.) They zap back »

Why Spaceballs is the Star Wars spoof we need

As the Epic Movie team announce they have Star Wars in their sights, might we have a chat about Mel Brooks' Spaceballs, amongst others?

Readers of this site may have read last week's news that there's to be a new Star Wars spoof. This film comes from the team who brought us Date Movie, Epic Movie, and apparently something called The Starving Games which blissfully passed me by. Jason Friedberg and Aaron Selzer make relatively cheap movies that, despite critical maulings, tend to make money at the box office. When I worked at a cinema, an eleven year old boy went to see Meet The Spartans three times, proclaiming it the best film he had ever seen.

Newswire: Scary Movie team to finally take Star Wars down a peg

8 February 2017 2:06 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

For years, moviegoers have enjoyed the antics of the Skywalker family, the Solo family, and the Lobot family in the Star Wars movies, but like all things that bring people happiness, it’s only a matter of time before some too-cool-for-school jokesters decide to poke fun at the series’ more ridiculous aspects. Well, that day has finally come, as comedy genius Mel Brooks has just announced Spaceballs, a feature-length Star Wars parody starring Rick Moranis, Daphne Zuniga, and Bill Pullman. Also, the year is 1987. Quick, warn the world about Donald Trump!

Seriously, though, Variety is reporting that Scary Movie masterminds Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer have announced a feature-length Star Wars parody of their own called—deep breath—Star Worlds Episode Xxxive=MC2: The Force Awakens The Last Jedi Who Went Rogue. The Variety story doesn’t have many details about Star Worlds, but countless C-level celebrities are probably »

Beauty and the Beast Doll Gets Slammed for Looking Like Justin Bieber

14 January 2017 9:14 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Disney has debuted its new Beauty and the Beast doll from the upcoming live-action adaptation of the animated classic. And fans are calling it tragic. We might have to agree. Personally, I don't think I've seen a doll this atrocious since John Goodman and Rick Moranis got the toy treatment for 1994's live-action The Flintstones. But at least those action figures looked like their human counterparts. This doll is being slammed because it doesn't look like Emma Watson, who stars as iconic fairy tale character Belle, but instead resembled, gasp, Justin Bieber. Just take a look at some of the Tweets below to see what has some fans all riled up.

Disney's new take on Beauty and the Beast is inarguably one of the most anticipated movies of 2017. And the Mouse House has started to heavily promote the fairy tale, which is roughly two months away, arriving in March just »
