Even With a Short Final Season, 'Treme' Finds a Beautiful, Bittersweet Ending

30 December 2013 12:43 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The article below contains spoilers through the Sunday, December 29th, 2013 episode of "Treme," "...To Miss New Orleans." Oh, I'm going to miss spending time with these characters. That's not something I thought I'd write when "Treme" premiered in 2010, a series that seemed to combine all of co-creator David Simon's least commercial and most didactic impulses, a New Orleans-set drama about musicians, about authenticity and about the ways in which the city, freshly ravaged by Hurricane Katrina, was being failed by the country and the state. It felt smart, urgent and scoldy, putting monologues on the state of things in the mouths of John Goodman's irate English professor Creighton Bernette and Steve Zahn's DJ and rabble-rouser Davis McAlary that seemed transparently aimed at viewers rather than anyone else on screen. But in the penultimate episode of season one, Creighton threw himself off the ferry after spending a day »

Ben Stiller director's clip reel: Zoolander, Tropic Thunder, Walter Mitty

24 December 2013 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Had it not been for the success of There's Something About Mary, Ben Stiller's career might have flown off in an entirely different direction.

At the time of that movie's release Stiller was a notable presence on the small screen, but he'd also directed two movies - Reality Bites and the Jim Carrey vehicle The Cable Guy. Mary's success turned Stiller into a bona fide comedy leading man, and roles in big budget fare such as Meet the Parents, Dodgeball and Night at the Museum followed.

Ben Stiller, Kristen Wiig talk Walter Mitty

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty review

Of course Stiller has still found time to make films - who could forget Zoolander and Tropic Thunder? - but his output of five films in the space of a 20-year directing career could have been significantly higher had it not been for the Farrellys' 1998 comedy classic.

Treme, Ep. 4.04, “Sunset on Louisianne” ponders legacy and loss

23 December 2013 8:02 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Treme, Season 4, Episode 4, “Sunset on Louisianne”

Written by David Simon

Directed by Alex Hall

Airs Sundays at 9pm Est on HBO

This week, on Treme: Davis turns 40, Antoine tests his limits, and Albert slips away

The reflective tone of last week’s episode is crystallized in “Sunset on Louisianne”, as characters ponder their legacies and impact while Big Chief Lambreaux quietly passes. Viewers expecting a dramatic, emotional goodbye for Albert may be disappointed, but they shouldn’t be surprised. Treme, like The Wire before it, prizes honesty over melodrama and an expected, comparatively peaceful death while sleeping is much more in keeping with this than the tearful goodbyes, waterworks, and last minute revelations of so many other cancer-related deaths on television.

Over the past few episodes, Albert has grown increasingly tired and has started to fade. After his admission last week that he wouldn’t be walking on Mardi Gras, »

'You've Got Mail': 25 Things You Didn't Know About the Nora Ephron Comedy

18 December 2013 2:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Kids, you may not believe this, but some of us are old enough to remember when you used to have to connect to the Internet via 56k dial-up modems. Or that AOL was once the most popular Internet service provider, so popular that everyone recognized the cheerful "You've Got Mail" alert that sounded when you signed on. Or that the "You've Got Mail" greeting was a promise that there was something exciting waiting for you in your e-mail inbox, not just spam ads for Canadian Viagra. Don't believe us? There's a historical document you should check out, aptly titled, "You've Got Mail."

It's been just 15 years since Nora Ephron's romantic comedy opened (December 18, 1998), but it seems like eons ago, not just because the Internet has evolved so much since then, but because we've all watched the unwitting romance between Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan) and Joe Fox (Tom Hanks) -- business rivals by day, »

Treme, Ep. 4.03, “Dippermouth Blues” starts preparing audiences for the end

17 December 2013 7:16 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Treme, Season 4, Episode 3, “Dippermouth Blues”

Written by Eric Overmyer

Directed by Ernest Dickerson

Airs Sundays at 9pm Est on HBO

This week, on Treme: Albert worsens, Janette runs out of champagne, and Antoine teaches a crash course

Season four continues along its bittersweet track this week, with everyone holding on for dear life as they say goodbye to 2008 and hello to 2009. Albert’s health is deteriorating, Janette continues to struggle with her new restaurant, and Terry feels the consequences of his season three evidence swap. Antoine reconnects with Jennifer, who’s drifted away from band after the death of Cherise, but he also gets a startling reminder of a certain portion of the population’s thoughts on race and history. At the moment, Treme looks like it’ll be going out not with the triumphant coming together of the season three finale, but a more sober statement on endurance. »

We've been following Joe Lynch's action fantasy comedy Knights of Badassdom for a couple years now, and audiences have been awaiting the film's release since it was teased at Comic-Con in 2011. Since then, there have been some problems behind the scenes regarding the final cut and completion of the film, but Entertainment One still picked up the film for distribution over the summer. We're not sure if the conflict between Lynch and the producers was worked out, but a new teaser for the film featuring Ryan Kwanten, Game of Thrones' Peter Dinklage, Summer Glau, Steve Zahn, Community's Danny Pudi and Margarita Levieva will hit theaters and arrives in limited theaters in January. It's about time! Watch it!

Non-Directors Cut of Knights of Badassdom Set for Release Next Year

13 December 2013 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

Very much like the problems 'Cabin in the Woods' faced in the past a project that is also having a bit of a struggle for release is Joe Lynch's ('Holliston') comedy horror feature 'Knights of Badassdom'. Thankfully, however, after being acquired by eOne back in the Summer it appears the movie will now be seeing an On Demand and Digital release on 11 February 2014. Word was that the studio would also be pushing it out into theatres. Sadly this is not exactly accurate. If you want to see Kob in your theatre then you're gonna have to give it a Tugg. You can bring the movie to your city from 21 January 2014 by requesting it at the Tugg link at the bottom of this story. Oh and by the way, it's not even the director's cut! So a mixed bag of news there...'Knights of Badassdom »

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

13 December 2013 12:01 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Directed by: Peter Jackson

Cast: Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage, Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly, Benedict Cumberbatch

Running Time: 2 hrs 41 mins

Rating: PG-13

Release Date: December 12, 2013

Plot: A hobbit named Bilbo (Freeman) travels with dwarves to their stolen land of Erebor, which has been taken over by a dragon named Smaug (Cumberbatch).

Who’S It For? Skeptics of the first Hobbit to see if they can be won over, and anyone else who enjoyed Peter Jackson’s previous Lord of the Rings movies.

Overall

Watching The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey last year was exactly like re-reading a long re-written prologue to a short story you already saw the 71-minute animated film of in fifth grade. It inspired skepticism more than excitement about a second trilogy from the guy who had already made a great batch of films, and rightly so. The grumbles from the »

Teaser Trailer for Knights Of Badassdom Starring Ryan Kwanten and Peter Dinklage

12 December 2013 4:50 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Director Joe Lynch’s (Wrong Turn 2) horror comedy Knights of Badassdom is finally set for release early next year, but as it turns out it might be incorrect to credit the film to Lynch.  The film, which is set in the world of LARPers (Live-Action Role Players) and revolves around a group accidentally summoning a blood-thirsty demon, ran into problems in post-production when the pic was taken away from Lynch and a 70-minute cut was created by the owner of the film’s production company.  eOne has acquired the film for distribution and released an announcement trailer, but it appears that, sadly, the film they’re releasing is not Lynch’s cut.  That’s unfortunate, because the footage we saw at Comic-Con two years ago looked like a lot of fun.  Hopefully Lynch’s version will see the light of day at some point. Hit the jump to watch the announcement teaser trailer. »

New Knights Of Badassdom Teaser Online

12 December 2013 4:02 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The publicity campaign for fantasy / horror / comedy Knights Of Badassdom seems to be going backwards. We had a full trailer from Comic-Con back in the summer (following a panel there in 2011), and now we're being presented with a new thirty-second teaser. Verily doth these marketing devils underestimate that which we hath spied hitherto. No matter: 'tis Peter Dinklage with a sword. Huzzah!The film finds a group of friends (Dinklage, Steve Zahn, Summer Glau and Danny Pudi) roping a newbie pal Joe (True Blood’s Ryan Kwanten) into their latest Live Action Role Playing (LARPing) campaign in an attempt to help him forget his real-world troubles. But while he expects a lame weekend of foam swords and ridiculous blather, he ends up with real demon succubi, as Zahn’s cleric unwittingly conjures up some genuinely monstrous problems.Director Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2) has compared it to a sort of Evil Dead meets The Goonies, »
