'Urban Legends: Final Cut' Deserves Another Chance, and Here’s Why...

14 April 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

I’m not going to delude myself and think that we’re going to start a revolution, and that Urban Legends: Final Cut will somehow surpass Halloween as the better film. But just hear me out; it’s a much better film than people have ever given it credit to be.

I was surfing around Netflix and saw it had been added; I own the DVD but as is with our age of digital gratification I popped it on anyways. As the credits started I remembered back to when I first saw it. The year was 2000, and I was looking through the DVD selection at my local Ames; a chain long since extinct, and I spotted it. I didn’t even have internet at the time- (go ahead and judge), and had heard nothing about a sequel to Urban Legends. I bought it sight unseen after reading the description, for a modest $24.99.

Marc Alan Fishman: Turtles the Size of Buicks!

29 March 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

No doubt you’ve watched it. If you’re of my generation? You’ve likely re-watched it several times over. And after each subsequent viewing… you ask yourself: Is Michael Bay destroying my childhood one license at a time? In response, I think we’ve all come to relatively the same conclusion– maybe a little bit. But the trailer in question reveals to us a Michael Bay at his Bay-ie-est.

Let’s start with the good. There’s plenty of hints that the film makers know the lore from which they are drawing. From April O’Boobs’ yellow jacket, the Tcri building, to the relatively recognizable Shredder armor… it’s clear that someone in the production watched a few cartoons in their pre-production meeting. Now, just because they happen to get some cliff notes of the Turtles, and then regurgitated them into their flick doesn’t necessarily mean we can »

Ice Cube returning for Barbershop 3

28 March 2014 12:19 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

MGM has just announced that it will be making a third Barbershop movie and Ice Cube is set to reprise his starring role as well as produce. It's been 10 years since the second movie was released but MGM is hoping Cube's recent success in movies such as 21 Jump Street and this year's Ride Along will have fans returning to the series.

Both movies focused on Ice Cube as Calvin Palmer, a barbershop owner in South Side Chicago. He inherited the shop from his father and wants to carry on his legacy but struggles to keep everything financially stable. Along with Cube there is a pretty impressive cast in both movies that include Cedric The Entertainer, Queen Latifah, Michael Ealy, Eve, Sean Patrick Thomas and Anthony Anderson. No word on if any other cast members are returning, however MGM for sure wants to get Cedric The Entertainer and Queen Latifah back for the third movie. »

NBC’s Constantine pilot has completed casting. Harold Perrinau will play an angel who watches over John Constantine and True Blood alum Lucy Griffiths (she played Eric‘s sister) is an “offbeat young lady” who joins forces with Constantine.

Aubrey Peeple, who plays Layla on Nashville talked with TV Guide about her character’s relationship with closeted singer Will, ” I think that him being good for her career was a huge factor in why they got together. But at this point … she’s totally head over heels for him, because she’s 19. There will always be that aspect of her career that drives her, and that’s what comes first. But she’s a hormonal teenager. She’s in love with him now.” Peeple also hints that Will and Layla’s storyline should get some major developments soon.

'Rake': Behind the scenes with Anthony Anderson on 'Three Strikes'

4 March 2014 4:57 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Being a lovable louche might work for Keegan Deane (Greg Kinnear) a lot of the time on the Fox legal dramedy "Rake," but sometimes, like in Thursday's episode (March 6) featuring guest star Anthony Anderson, it backfires in a big way.

Zap2it has an exclusive sneak peek of the episode, in which Keegan defends a wrongfully accused man about to head to prison for life because of the three strikes rule. There's one problem: He's innocent.

Says Anderson, who plays Keegan's innocent defendant, "[Keegan] has one trick up his sleeve. I can't tell you what that trick is -- you're going to have to watch -- but it's a trick that he has to do because he's sleeping with the mayor's wife and the mayor has sent down this mandate that every case that comes across Keegan's desk is supposed to be prosecuted to the fullest extent."

Adds the actor, "You »
