Springfield, Or To Get Official 'Simpsons' Mural, Is Now The Only Real Springfield

1 June 2014 7:43 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Springfield, Oregon is hereby deemed the only true Springfield. Denizens of all other Springfields are bowing their heads in shame today with the news that the picturesque northwest burg has been chosen to receive an official "Simpsons" mural on the side of their art center, because creator Matt Groening grew up there and now has hundreds of millions of dollars. While there's no artwork available at this time, city spokesman Niel Laudati says the mural will depict Homer lounging in a hammock, Bart climbing a tree, Marge painting, and Lisa and Maggie riding a bike. So tell me, Other Springfields, which TV geniuses did you spawn hmmm? "Legendary voice actress June Foray?" offers Springfield, Massachussetts sheepishly. Psshhhh!! Did June Foray create a multi-billion-dollar empire? No! No, she did not. She did a couple dumb animal voices and now she's 96. Next! "'Grey's Anatomy' star Justin Chambers is a pretty good act --" begins Springfield, »

What Were Hoskins' Best Films and Performances?

30 April 2014 2:02 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Bob Hoskins dead at 71: Hoskins’ best movies included ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit,’ ‘Mona Lisa’ (photo: Bob Hoskins in ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’ with Jessica Rabbit, voiced by Kathleen Turner) Bob Hoskins, who died at age 71 in London yesterday, April 29, 2014, from pneumonia (initially reported as “complications of Parkinson’s disease”), was featured in nearly 70 movies over the course of his four-decade film career. Hoskins was never a major box office draw — "I don’t think I’m the sort of material movie stars are made of — I’m five-foot-six-inches and cubic. My own mum wouldn’t call me pretty." Yet, this performer with attributes similar to those of Edward G. Robinson, James Cagney, and Lon Chaney had the lead in one of the biggest hits of the late ’80s. In 1988, Robert Zemeckis’ groundbreaking Who Framed Roger Rabbit, which seamlessly blended animated and live action footage, starred Hoskins as gumshoe Eddie Valiant, »

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 »
