Season finale review: 'Veep - 'Election Night': Ma'am up!

14 June 2015 8:01 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of the "Veep" season finale coming up just as soon as I have incompatible shoes for this carpet... Earlier this season, I wondered if the show might find some way for the election to end with Selina as someone else's vice-president, allowing the show to revert to its original set-up. A part of me was amused by the thought of the contortions necessary to get us to that point, while another was dismayed at the idea that the show might have to hit the reset button so hard, given how much fun Selina-as-potus has been. We'll see if season 5 actually goes through with this tiebreaker mess, where Tom James becomes president, and Selina perhaps becomes his veep. But if the level of execution remains as good as it was throughout "Election Night," and this whole great season, then I don't know how much I care exactly what job »

Growing Up And Other Lies Review

20 March 2015 5:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

During their 260-block journey down the island of Manhattan, the four friends in Growing Up and Other Lies engage in a lot of banter and bickering. The characters are all in their late twenties and early thirties, yet common conversation topics include erections and defecating in bathtubs. A running joke throughout the 90-minute film is a “would you rather” situation that one of the characters poses to his friends. “I’m not playing that game,” says the embittered Gunderson (Wyatt Cenac), as his three companions debate the choice they would take. “I find it childish and silly.”

As the title suggests and their infantile talks further prove, the film is dealing with men who still behave like children, resistant to move beyond the glory years of their high-school friendship and take responsibility for their own lives. That is likely the writers’ intention: to treat the characters as if they were belligerent high schoolers, »

'Big Hero 6' Voice Actor Hints at Possible Sequel or Short

11 March 2015 3:15 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After taking in more than $600 million at the box office, and winning the Oscar for Best Animated Feature last month, many fans are hoping that Disney will pull the trigger on a sequel to Big Hero 6, but the studio has not made an official announcement at this time. Of course, since the movie is based on a Marvel comic book, there are surely more stories to be told in this universe, although directors Don Hall and Chris Williams recently revealed that they have no current plans to make a follow-up. While doing press for her action-thriller Run All Night, Genesis Rodriguez, who voiced Honey Lemon in Big Hero 6, says that she has heard "rumblings" of a sequel in the works at Disney.

"There's rumblings of something else happening. I mean yesterday I just saw that it's the third most grossing Disney animated feature, so this is huge for them. »

Interview: Baymax Actor Scott Adsit of Big Hero 6

27 February 2015 2:52 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Scott Adsit has spent over a decade playing and voicing different supporting characters in dozens of television shows and movies. All his hard work is paying off thanks to the landmark role the actor took on for Disney’s incredibly popular Big Hero 6. He voices Baymax, the loveable inflatable robot, who lead character Hiro teams up with to fight evil in San Fransokyo. 

I had the opportunity to interview Mr. Adsit about what will no doubt be a career-defining role. Big Hero 6 has the potential to become a monstrous franchise that could go on for years to come. His character of Baymax will obviously be a central figure in any sequels Disney would make.

We chatted about the possibility of sequels, how he got the role of Baymax, why audiences should see Big Hero 6, and more. The two of us also discussed the lack of a Marvel »

Pilot Spotlight: 'Salem Rogers: Model of the Year 1998'

11 February 2015 6:18 PM, PST | Hollywonk | See recent Hollywonk news »

A decade in rehab has failed to tame abrasive former supermodel Salem Rogers (Leslie Bibb, About a Boy), Model of the Year 1998. Now that she’s been let loose on the world, hard-partying Salem is intent on recreating her former success and glamorous lifestyle in a new world she barely recognizes. She tracks down her browbeaten former assistant (SNL alum Rachel Dratch), who’s since built a career as an author of self-help books, and stops at nothing to enlist her in her plans to return to the spotlight – whatever it takes. 

Discovered through Amazon Studios’ open submission website, Salem Rogers was created by newcomer Lindsey Stoddart, directed by Mark Waters (Mean Girls) and executive produced by Will Graham (The Onion News Network).  In addition to Bibb and Dratch, the half-hour comedy stars Jane Kaczmarek (Malcolm in the Middle), Brad Morris (Playing House), Harry Hamlin (Mad Men), Toks Olagundoye (The Neighbors »

What's New on TV, Netflix Streaming, Digital, and DVD/Blu-ray This Week: February 2 - February 8

2 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.

New on DVD and Blu-ray

"The Best of Me"

This might not be the best of Nicholas Sparks's oeuvre of weepy romantic dramas, but at least it's not the most insane! (That honor probably goes to "Safe Haven," for the record.) In any case, this story about true love lost and found stars Cyclops from "X-Men" and Michelle Monaghan. If you love Nicholas Sparks, you love him, and nothing anyone else says will change that. Which is sort of admirable, really. Extend your love Sparks with this exclusive featurette.

"Dear White People"

This indie from writer/director Justin Simien is a comedy about race politics on an Ivy League campus. It is funny and smart, and you should see it. Tessa Thompson leads a great ensemble »

Big Hero 6 Review

30 January 2015 6:32 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Don Hall, Chris Williams

Cast: Ryan Potter, Scott Adist

Running Time: 102 minutes

Certificate: PG

Synopsis: The special bond that develops between plus-sized inflatable robot Baymax, and prodigy Hiro Hamada, who team up with a group of friends to form a band of high-tech heroes.

Kids’ films are curiously difficult to get right. The best examples take their audience seriously, and often offer rounded appeal – meaning parents can enjoy the experience too. Take, for instance, The Lego Movie: fun for all the family, exploring deeper themes while providing plenty of laughs and a supremely enjoyable ride. Sadly, Big Hero 6 isn’t particularly fun even for the kids.

Meshing a predictable underlying narrative with a handful of ridiculous plot twists and set pieces, Disney’s latest Marvel adap ultimately ends up feeling patronising, even toward its youngest demographics. It’s set in the fictional city of San Fransokyo (which »

Big Hero 6 review: Disney superhero tale has heart and spectacle

30 January 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Don Hall, Chris Williams; Screenwriters: Jordan Roberts, Dan Gerson, Robert L Baird; Starring: Ryan Potter, Scott Adsit, Jamie Chung, Tj Miller, Genesis Rodriguez, Damon Wayans Jr; Running time: 108 mins; Certificate: PG

Disney mines the Marvel Comics back catalogue for its latest animation Big Hero 6, a delightfully entertaining East/West genre blend that's a neat addition to the ever-expanding superhero genre. Think of it as an Avengers aimed at tweens.

The story takes place in the fictional future city of San Fransokyo where Hiro (Ryan Potter), a 14-year-old tech whizz, and his brother Tadashi (Daniel Henney) live with their Aunt Cass (Maya Rudolph). Hiro is directionless and constantly running into trouble, but through his older brother he begins to develop his interest in robotics.

Baymax, a rotund vinyl-clad healthcare android, is Tadashi's prize invention. Able to scan a patient for illness and injury and treat them, he comically waddles »

Big Hero 6 movie review: how to train your robot

28 January 2015 1:38 PM, PST | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Joyous and exhilarating. A fresh and funny animated adventure that subverts genre clichés at every turn. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Superhero origin stories are ubiquitous in our comic-book-happy pop culture, but none of them has been as sheerly, simply delightful as Big Hero 6… maybe because it barely feels like an origin story at all. Oh, all the familiar elements are here, in this gorgeously animated Disney flick: a young genius tormented by grief; high-tech gadgets; a complex villain; funny sidekicks. But the movie is so utterly unself-conscious that even the moments of self-referential humor — the kind that are inevitable when one of the superteam is a big ol’ geek who has been actively trying to reinvent himself as a comic-book character — play like something we’ve never seen before.

Movie Review – Big Hero 6 (2015)

28 January 2015 11:26 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Big Hero 6, 2015.

Directed by Don Hall and Chris Williams.

Featuring the voice talents of Ryan Potter, Scott Adsit, Daniel Henney, T.J. Miller, Jamie Chung, Damon Wayans Jr., James Cromwell and Alan Tudyk.


The special bond that develops between plus-sized inflatable robot Baymax, and prodigy Hiro Hamada, who team up with a group of friends to form a band of high-tech heroes.

With Pixars’ John Lasseter and Edwin Catmull involved, you know they’ve probably done well, and in Big Hero 6, there is very little disappointment. This is the next film to surface after the “redemption quadtrilogy” of The Princess and the Frog, Tangled, Wreck It Ralph (a personal favourite), and the musically unending smash hit Frozen. Since bringing these guys in, Disney have totally turned it around, with some saying that Pixar has actually taken a little hit in creativity since Catmull and Lasseter assumed control of both studios. »

Film Review: 'Big Hero 6'

28 January 2015 1:09 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆ Comic book adaptations are fast becoming a staple element in the diet of blockbuster cinemagoers and, despite already owning Marvel, Disney have now decided to get in on the action themselves. Their first foray into the superhero universe comes in the eminently cuddly form of the inflatable robot Baymax (Scott Adsit), whose Kuleshov care warms the heart of Big Hero 6 (2014). He's a roly-poly nanny, designed to soothe aches both physical and emotional in the futuristic synthesis of East and West that is the city of San Fransokyo. Envisioned as the ultimate carer, he provides a loveable axel around which the colourful animation and madcap fun can revolve.
