The Nice Guys, 2016.
Directed by Shane Black.
A private detective and an enforcer team up to infiltrate the porn industry in 1977 Los Angeles.
Mismatched buddy movies have been a constant staple of Hollywood since the year dot and Shane Black’s 1987 hit Lethal Weapon is still pretty much the benchmark to which all others adhere to, the stars in perfect alignment with regards to script, actors and direction. With The Nice Guys, Black returns to the sub-genre but this time the emphasis is on the comedy rather than the action, and where better to start than hiring two actors not exactly known for their comedy chops. That’s right; instead of ‘Mad’ Mel and straight man Danny Glover – admittedly another two actors that don’t immediately spring to mind »
The nominee list for the 2016 Emmys was full of heavy hitters, and the show itself did not disappoint. Game of Thrones took home some major awards (though sadly none for the actors), and Veep nailed the comedy side. Meanwhile, we couldn't be happier for Rami Malek and Tatiana Maslany!

Jimmy Kimmel did an awesome job hosting, and even managed to point out all of the annoying gluten free stars in the audience after passing out Pb&J sandwiches his mom made. And he hoped nobody was allergic to nuts!
Congrats to all the winners. How many surprised you by the way things turned out? FX proved that there may be too much television to choose from, but what they're putting out there is of the great variety.
HBO offered up repeats with Game of Thrones and Veep, Keeping The Americans from a Best Drama win, but Rami Malek got the best actor win, even if we were also cheering heartily for Matthew Rhys. And our girl »

Last year’s Emmy winner for best drama, “Game of Thrones,” is already on track to do it again.
The HBO juggernaut picked up a whopping seven Emmy awards on Saturday night at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards – and the big categories are still to come. “Game of Thrones” landed 23 nominations overall this year, the most of any program in 2016. Last year “Game of Thrones” won 12 Emmys, out of 24 nominations.
Another Primetime Emmy frontrunner, “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” also got off to a good start, as night one of the two-night Creative Arts Emmys slog kicked off in Downtown Los Angeles.

“Ugh, I smell like a human!”
Princess Mononoke plays this weekend (September 2nd and 3rd) at the Tivoli as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli Midnight series.
Hayao Miyazaki’s Princess Mononoke (1997) is reportedly a delightful anime from the man who has come to define everything that is best about the genre, I’ve never seen it, but Miyazaki always brings in the crowds for the midnight shows so I’m sure it’s a worthy choice. Princess Mononoke was Miyazaki’s calling card to the world outside Japan. The English voice cast boasts Billy Crudup, Billy Bob Thornton, Minnie Driver, Claire Danes, Jada Pinkett Smith, Gillan Anderson and Keith David – a considerable volume of talent for an animation back in 1997 (Toy Story was 1995), arguably marking the beginning of another trend – for big names to be heard and not seen. Essentially a statement on the ecological devastation brought on by human advancement, »

Last month, creator Dan Harmon said a Community TV series reunion movie will happen.Read More… »

In a recent interview on Larry King Now, the creator of the cult sitcom told the host that the NBC-turned-Yahoo Screen series “would make a great movie,” adding, “It will happen.” He hesitated, however, to lay out a specific timeframe for the theatrical follow-up.
Merle Dandridge got her first professional acting job when she was 20, and has been working ever since. The American actress, born in Japan, stars in the Own Network’s “Greenleaf” alongside Lynn Whitfield and Keith David. Dandridge spoke with Variety about big changes in her life — and in the world.
What was your big break?
It was a couple of months out of college when I got my first tour on “Smokey Joe’s Café.” I was the swing, which means I covered all of the female roles, so I had to be disciplined. It was kind of like a boot camp — always being prepared for anything that might come up. It’s the hardest job, but it’s also a really great way to learn.
“Greenleaf” is a departure from your previous work.
It’s been a very different experience for me, sitting right in the heart of the main storyline as a lead. Fortunately »

“Add Oprah Winfrey and they will come” might become the new adage for Own after the success of Greenleaf's debut last night. The 10 Pm premiere of the megachurch family drama starring Merle Dandridge, Keith David, Lynn Whitfield and Oprah herself drew 3.04 million viewers and a 2.18 rating in Own’s target market of women 25-54. That makes Greenleaf the biggest series launch in Own’s five-year history. It also makes Greenleaf the most-watched show on cable last night and… »
Three episodes were provided prior to broadcast.
The news that you’ve seen Greenleaf before probably won’t come as much of a shock. The show is billed as a dynastic family drama whose deceit and lies bubble to the surface once a prodigal child returns with a baggage of viewpoints directly contradicting with what most in the scrupulous title clan take as gospel. Interchange Greenleaf’s sprawling megachurch in Memphis with a record business, oil company, etc, and you have the set-up of most serialized dramas in the past three decades.
That’s the unfortunate first impression that Own’s new scripted series gives off in its opening three hours: redundancy. The faith-based approach to a bible-thumping, all-black, Southern brood – who would smack me over the head for using the term “bible-thumping” – coalesces into welcomely dense conversations of what it actually means to be Christian, but the show never »

One of “Greenleaf’s” most notable accomplishments is how much it packs into its first three episodes without seeming rushed or overwrought. It’s a classic nighttime soap, so all the staples of the genre are there: infidelity, substance abuse, a love triangle or two, greed, resentment, and vengeance. And yet this capable drama, which chronicles the intertwined lives of an African-American clan that presides over a high-powered megachurch in Memphis, treats themes of faith and redemption with earnest intelligence. It also contains some thoughtful meditations on how toxic secrets, especially those involving sexual violence, can ripple through families and communities, causing waves of destruction along the way.
Oprah Winfrey is an executive producer of “Greenleaf,” and she also has a modest but effective recurring guest role as Mavis, a relative of the Greenleaf family who runs a nightclub on Beale Street. Winfrey appears in the first three episodes, and »
