The Premiere of "Dumb & Dumber To" Had the Most Throwback Guest List Ever

4 November 2014 11:15 AM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

The first "Dumb and Dumber" came out way back in 1994, so it's no surprise last night's premiere for the sequel, "Dumb and Dumber To," was packed full of stars that made us feel a little nostalgic.Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels paid homage to their on-screen alter-egos by dressing in suits similar to the tuxedos they famously sported in the '90s flick. The two also showed up to the red carpet in one very familiar vehicle: The Mutt Cutts van!But the flashbacks didn't stop there. While original film star (and Carrey ex-wife) Lauren Holly was sadly Mia, another pair of '90s women caught our eyes.Vanessa Angel -- who starred in one of the Farrelly Brothers' other films, "Kingpin," as well as the TV version of "Weird Science" -- looked sexy as ever in black leather and lace. Now 47, Angel most recently appeared on an episode of »

Trailer for Unofficial Raging Bull Sequel Bronx Bull

22 June 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I can't believe there were a couple production companies out there that actually made an unofficial sequel to Martin Scorsese and Robert DeNiro's classic boxing drama Raging Bull. But they did. It's called Bronx Bull, and today we give you the first trailer for the film. I personally think the movie looks awful. It's got a decent cast of talent, but the script seems pretty terrible. 

The film is described as a "combination prequel and sequel that explores 'before the rage' and 'after the rage' of world middleweight boxing champ Jake Lamotta's tumultuous life and times."

The movie was directed by Martin Guigui (National Lampoon's Cattle Call) and it stars William Forsy, Natasha Henstridge, Alicia Witt, Penelope Ann Miller, Joe Mantegna, Ray Wise, Paul Sorvino, and more. There's no release date yet, but I doubt it's going to get a theatrical release.

'The Bronx Bull' Trailer Acts as the Unofficial 'Raging Bull' Sequel

19 June 2014 9:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After the unofficial Raging Bull sequel/prequel The Bronx Bull was slapped with a lawsuit by MGM in 2012, many fans thought the movie would never see the light of day. The lawsuit was eventually settled, with the movie changing its title from Raging Bull II to The Bronx Bull, and now we have our first look at this controversial film with the new trailer. William Forsythe stars as boxer Jake Lamotta, portrayed by Robert De Niro in Raging Bull, in what is described as both a prequel and a sequel to the 1980 classic, offering new insight into the boxer's turbulent life. Natasha Henstridge, Alicia Witt, Penelope Ann Miller, Joe Mantegna, Ray Wise and Paul Sorvino round out the supporting cast for director Martin Guigui's drama, which doesn't have a release date set at this time.

'Justified' producer Graham Yost post-mortems season 5

8 April 2014 8:13 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

FX's "Justified" is usually one of my favorite shows on television, but the just-completed fifth season was my least favorite stretch of the show. The Crowe family never clicked for me as major villains the way the show's other big bads have, a lot of time was spent on the bleakness of Ava's life in prison and Boyd's struggles to become a heroin trafficker, and at a certain point I was just waiting for the show to kick off the Raylan vs. Boyd endgame that will be the subject of the final season next year. As I usually do at the end of the season, I got on the phone with "Justified" showrunner Graham Yost, who was good-natured (and good-humored) about discussing a season he knows hasn't been the series' most popular, and who explained some of the ways plans changed over the course of the season.

‘Justified’ Exclusive: Showrunner Graham Yost on wrapping this season, the series & ‘The Americans’

27 March 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

The explosives have begun to go off in the “Year of the Crowes” FX’s Justified with just two episodes left. Art Mullen’s (Nick Searcy) been shot and his deputies need to step up while he lies on a hospital bed in critical condition. Raylan Given’s (Timothy Olyphant) struggle with the Crowe family reached the point of no return, as has the partnership between Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins) and Wynn Duffy (Jere Burns). Oh and Ava (Joelle Carter) has just asserted herself as an alpha in the prison system and builds her own criminal rep. Five years in, Justified continues to help lead the pack of superb television and as always there are plenty of cogs in motion, and we’ve got Executive Producer/Showrunner Graham Yost on board to talk about this current and next year’s final season, how their writer’s room is unique, and »

'Justified' postmortem: Ep Graham Yost dissects 'The Toll' (and another gory surprise)

25 March 2014 8:03 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Spoiler alert! If you haven’t yet watched this week’s episode of Justified, “The Toll” written by Benjamin Cavell and directed by Jon Avnet, stop reading now. As he’ll do throughout the season, showrunner Graham Yost takes us inside the writers room. An additional warning this week for fans of The Good Wife: the big twist in that show’s March 23 episode is referenced, twice.

Entertainment Weekly: We have to start with Picker’s death, which was as surprising as Danny’s death last episode though not quite as funny. At their meeting with Wynn and Katherine, »

Justified Review: “Weight” (Season 5, Episode 10)

19 March 2014 5:11 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Crowe’s came into this season of Justified with a bang, and it looks like that’s exactly the way that they’re unintentionally going to go out. Danny (Aj Buckley) was introduced to fans early on as a loose cannon. He’s all brawn and no finesse. We saw how quickly his temper flared up when the Crowe’s first arrived in Kentucky – first with Jean-Baptiste (Edi Gathegi), and later with Kendal’s social worker, Allison (Amy Smart). Even when posed with situations involving law enforcement, Danny falls into his familiar pattern of action over strategy each time. Which is exactly what landed him in his current predicament, despite (or maybe because of) the jolt of confidence after retrieving Dewey (Damon Herriman) and the other half of the Mexican drug haul.

The sad part about Dewey, or at least the most recent addition to that list, is that »

'Justified' postmortem: Ep Graham Yost dissects 'Whistle Past the Graveyard'

4 March 2014 11:51 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Spoiler alert! If you haven’t watched this week’s episode of Justified, “Whistle Past the Graveyard” written by Chris Provenzano and directed by Peter Werner, stop reading now. As he’ll do throughout the season, showrunner Graham Yost takes us inside the writers room. 

Entertainment Weekly: Did you know at the start of the season that Wendy (Alicia Witt) was the mother of Kendal (Jacob Lofland), not his sister?

Graham Yost: Absolutely no idea.

Really?

It’s like last year when we were talking, and you said, “Did you know that Shelby was gonna be Drew Thompson?” and I said, »

Justified Review: “Whistle Past The Graveyard” (Season 5, Episode 8)

4 March 2014 9:01 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Every season Justified parades a new set of characters in front of viewers. Occasionally one sticks, but most of the time they go the way of one hit records. This season we saw the emergence of a new family of characters, The Crowes, and even though Daryl (Michael Rapaport) and Danny (A.J. Buckley) have already rubbed enough people the wrong way, there might be a couple members of the family worth embracing.

Wendy (Alicia Witt), and her brother (son) Kendal (Jacob Lofland), are an interesting pair. Although they have established themselves within the family order, which doesn’t seem like much of an option, they don’t have the same mentality as some of their relatives. Wendy clearly possesses a brain, and has at least partially passed it down through genetics to her son. Never finishing law school aside, she is open to the possibility of removing herself from the family infrastructure. »

Justified, Ep. 5.07: “Raw Deal” a rare mid-season misfire

26 February 2014 1:42 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Justified, Season 5, Episode 7: “Raw Deal

Written by VJ Boyd

Directed by Bill Johnson

Airs Tuesdays at 10pm Et on FX -

Why does it feel like so little happens in “Raw Deal”? A relatively major character bites the dust, Boyd’s Mexican adventure appears to be imperiled nice and early, Ava makes a play at being a state-pen kingpin in order to keep her dignity, and Raylan might very well be headed to work in a totally different Marshals office. That’s very far from nothing, but “Raw Deal” still feels curiously free of friction, a resource Justified does not usually lack for.

-

Part of the problem is the kinda-sorta-a-plot, a weirdly insubstantial trifle in which Raylan tracks down a hacker named T.C. (played by T.J. Linnard, who also plays C.J. on Looking — got all that?) who swindles his way into a $250K payday by passing »

Justified Review: “Raw Deal” (Season 5, Episode 7)

26 February 2014 7:59 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s not that this episode of Justified was uneventful. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. At its core though, the characters and their actions were a bit too predictable to make it a contender for thrilling. The story keeps moving, but at the same time it has managed to fall into a rut, seemingly moseying through the midpoint of the season as if Justified is simply intent on going through the motions just to say they did.

Raylan (Timothy Olyphant) has managed to upset the balance after his confession to Art (Nick Searcy), and there’s something about his professional life being off kilter that makes everything else seem somewhat normal. For the first time in several seasons his relationship seems to be progressing at an average pace with all the usual bumps and bruises that come along with inviting someone new into your personal life.

Local Filmmaker Announces In The Buck with a Kickstarter Campaign

19 February 2014 9:11 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Sundance Film Festival alum and Alton, Il native Brian Jun is preparing to bring his 5th feature back to the St. Louis metro area to film. The Kickstarter campaign for his film In The Buck hopes to exceed its projected $75,000 goal for a planned May 2014 shoot. His newest film is a provocative story about sex, love, fertility and how the expectations of gender roles have shaped modern relationships. After personally backing projects on this platform for a couple years, Jun decided to bring his current project to Kickstarter to take advantage of the “freedom and financial resources it offered to make a truly original piece of work.”

Perks for this film give the general public a chance to be an insider throughout the entire filmmaking process: networking with the cast and filmmakers through set visits and one-on-one lunches/dinners, access to watch the movie (via download or Blu-ray), even invitations »

Justified, Ep. 5.06: “Kill the Messenger” proves the series has its groove back

12 February 2014 9:50 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Justified, Season 5, Episode 6: “Kill the Messenger”

Written by Ingrid Escajeda

Directed by Don Kurt

Airs Tuesdays at 10pm Et -

Thank goodness; “Shot All To Hell” appears not to have been a fluke, and Season 5 is finally, officially, cooking with oil. “Kill the Messenger,” while not bucking the trend of Justified‘s almost uselessly arbitrary episode titling, follows up on last week’s deck-clearing smorgasbord of goodness in kind, fleshing out the Crowe family dynamic with some of the season’s most effective comedic beats and even managing to unite a host of seemingly disparate plot threads. In other words: vintage Justified.

It took six episodes, but we finally have the Ava Crowder Prison Drama we were all pretty openly clamoring for. Ava’s arrival in the state pen ushers in absolutely no Orange is the New Black-style antics, only grim portent and the upsetting, but crucial development »

Justified, Ep. 5.04: “Over the Mountain” struggles to establish compelling stakes

29 January 2014 4:18 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Justified, Season 5, Episode 4: “Over the Mountain”

Written by Taylor Elmore

Directed by Gwyneth Horder-Payton

Airs Tuesdays at 10pm Et on FX -

In case the theme of Season 5 of Justified wasn’t already abundantly clear, “Over the Mountain,” the latest in a too-long string of set-up episodes, underlines it in felt-tip. If the series subtitled its seasons, Spartacus-style, this one would obviously be “Kin.” Every single plot thread either explicitly revolves around or slyly evokes the meaning of family, and more specifically what the series’ characters should and should not put up with from their family, be they literal or adopted.

We’ve already had Raylan shucking his most basic parental duties by not making a stop in Florida to see his newborn daughter, as well as bailing out his surrogate daughter Loretta. We’ve had Art, the closest thing to a father Raylan has left (even doling out »

‘Justified’ Episode 5.2 Review: Chipping away at Raylan’s World

15 January 2014 9:16 AM, PST | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

Justified Season 5 Episode 2: The Kids Aren’t All Right

Every new season of Justified is like getting a block of sandstone you chip away at, knowing you’ll unearth a treasure, a precious fossil or gem perhaps. But it requires patience to get that treasure out and hours of work. The season premieres are usually front-loaded with information; they are usually followed by some stand alone episodes containing more of that stone being chipped away – a little here, and a little there. Episode 502 continues that annual trend as our attention is diverted slightly from what transpired in “A Murder of Crowes” to follow up on one of our favorite recurring characters: Loretta McCready (played by Kaitlyn Dever, who never fails to impress).

You might remember her as the young girl Mags Bennett took in during season two, after her sons killed Loretta’s father. We also got to see »
