7 New Netflix Shows to Binge Watch in December 2016, and The Best Episodes of Each

1 December 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

1. “Trollhunters” Season 1 (available December 23)

Why Should I Watch It? Two big reasons: First, the director of “Pan’s Labyrinth,” Guillermo del Toro, created “Trollhunters,” an animated event series about a teenager who discovers a mystical amulet that unveils a secret civilization of trolls beneath his hometown. If the Oscar nominee himself isn’t enough, there’s another creative force — in addition to the impressive voice cast of Kelsey Grammer, Ron Perlman and Charlie Saxton — to pay attention to: Said teenager is voiced by Anton Yelchin, in what’s being billed his final role. After debuting two episodes at New York Comic-Con in October, del Toro said he never even discussed replacing Yelchin. “We didn’t go into a meeting,” del Toro said. “We didn’t have a conference. […] He was a great guy to work with, he was proud of what he did, we were proud of what he did. »

Q&A with The Charnel House Director Craig Moss

3 November 2016 8:20 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Lofts can breathe new life into long-abandoned buildings, but in The Charnel House, a haunted space for slaughter should have remained uninhabited. Coming out in theaters and on VOD from Freestyle Digital Media on November 4th, The Charnel House looks to provide viewers with supernatural scares aplenty, and we caught up with director Craig Moss for our latest Q&A feature.

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Craig. What attracted you to the story behind The Charnel House?

Craig Moss: There were so many elements of this screenplay that reminded me of some of the classic suspenseful/thriller/horror films from forty or fifty years ago. It was just a refreshing change of pace from some of the same old material I’ve read countless times. Our producer Sandra Siegal and writers Mani Isler and Chad Israel did an extraordinary job creating this interesting »

NCIS: New Orleans Season 3 Episode 5 Review: Course Correction

25 October 2016 10:19 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

The impact others' mistakes can have on those they love is the message at the heart of NCIS: New Orleans Season 3 Episode 5.

The campaign to humanize Gregorio continues, as she relates to a young woman who is bitter about her absentee military father. Emily's father, Petty Officer Amir Saad, is one of the six killed in the transport-plane crash that's the central case of the hour. Emily is disdainful of her father, who was never there for her and her late mother.

It's been hinted that Gregorio has past ties to New Orleans, but she still seems to want to get back to DC Asap.

I've been in Nola longer than i expected. I'm starting to succumb to its charms, i'll admit. it's time for me to go home, you know.

Movie Review – Storks (2016)

14 October 2016 3:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Storks, 2016.

Directed by Nicholas Stoller, Doug Sweetland

Featuring the voice talents of Andy Samberg, Katie Crown, Kelsey Grammer, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Jennifer Aniston, Ty Burrell, Danny Trejo and Stephen Kramer Glickman.

Synopsis:

Storks have moved on from delivering babies to packages. But when an order for a baby appears, the best delivery stork must scramble to fix the error by delivering the baby.

There’s a reason the late Chuck Jones-the mastermind behind Looney Tunes – is remembered as maybe the great of animation; Jones had a fundamental understanding of what one could do with medium, the world building, animation as a facility to play with physics. Not to go so far as to compare Storks, the latest from Warner Bros. Animation – whose only film prior was 2014’s delightful The Lego Movie – to that of Jones’ output, but it certainly takes notes. It seems infatuated with the brazen, brash »

Jeopardy's Alex Trebek Delivers Sick Burn to 'Loser' Contestant — Watch

Alex Trebek calls ’em like he sees ’em, folks.

During Wednesday’s episode of Jeopardy, contestant Susan Cole explained her passion for “nerdcore hip-hop,” which involves rapping about “video games, science-fiction” and, naturally, “having a hard time meeting romantic partners.”

But the game show’s once-mustachioed host felt he had a more appropriate word to describe this particular group of performers: “losers.”

Fortunately, Cole got the last laugh, winning the game and pocketing more than $20,000. (And you know we’ll be tuning in for her return on Thursday.)

Shia Labeouf’s Vegas ‘Wedding’ and More of His Headline-Making Moments

13 October 2016 8:40 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

//players.brightcove.net/416418724/default_default/index.min.js

Shia Labeouf recently made headlines for reportedly marrying girlfriend Mia Goth in a ceremony presided over by an Elvis impersonator. Though it was later reported that the event was just a “commitment ceremony,” nothing about this is surprising. In fact, it would have been more surprising for Labeouf to have a simple City Hall ceremony attended by friends and family, given his track record. Let’s take a look back at some of that track record now — it’ll be a pre-wedding scrapbook of sorts.

‘Storks’ review: “Enjoyable though unmemorable”

12 October 2016 9:38 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Storks review: Nicholas Stoller injects some comedy into his first animated movie which is largely enjoyable, but instantly forgettable.

Storks review by Paul Heath.

Storks deliver babies. Everyone knows that. Well, they used to exclaims Nicholas Stoller‘s (Bad Neighbours) first foray into animation.

Storks, from Wag – that’s Warner Bros. Animation, revolves around an Internet shopping destination where all of the parcels are delivered by – yes you’ve guessing it – storks. They’ve long been done with those pesky babies now that Kelsey Grammar‘s Hunter is in charge. Hunter’s reign at the top is set to come to an end and Junior (Adam Samberg) looks like the man to take over – he has just one task – to fire human worker Tulip (Katie Crown) who keeps messing things up and forcing the sales numbers to nose-dive. Tulip was the last baby ever to be scheduled for delivery by the storks, »

Amazon Video Direct: E-Commerce Giant Reveals Top-Performing Content Partners (Exclusive)

Since Amazon’s launch in May of Amazon Video Direct, the company says users have streamed several billion minutes of video from its partners the service, which is open to any content creator or owner and provides multiple options for generating money from that video.
