The Middle: family comedy at its best (and 5 great episodes)

22 July 2015 9:07 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A warm but never schmaltzy, perfectly formed family sitcom with no weak links in its cast, here's why you should watch The Middle...

Family sitcoms aren’t exactly thin on the ground, so finding a new spin on the format is always going to take some work. Originally intended as a vehicle for Ricki Lake, The Middle is a case in point. After several years in development, it finally aired in autumn 2009 with a new lead: Patricia Heaton, one of the stars of hugely popular show Everybody Loves Raymond. Writers Eileen Heisler and DeAnn Heline had previously been responsible for Roseanne, so the track records of all involved boded well for the series’ prospects. Six seasons later – with a seventh confirmed in May – expectations have well and truly been proved correct.

The Middle is a warm, beautifully performed and acutely observed portrait of a family struggling to cope with the »

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Stone (Thrillingly) Assassinates Truth While Investigating Kennedy Assassination

14 May 2015 6:22 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'JFK' movie with Kevin Costner as Jim Garrison 'JFK' assassination movie: Gripping political drama gives added meaning to 'Rewriting History' If it's an Oliver Stone film, it must be bombastic, sentimental, clunky, and controversial. With the exception of "clunky," JFK is all of the above. It is also riveting, earnest, dishonest, moving, irritating, paranoid, and, more frequently than one might expect, outright brilliant. In sum, Oliver Stone's 1991 political thriller about a determined district attorney's investigation of the assassination of U.S. president John F. Kennedy is a slick piece of propaganda that mostly works both dramatically and cinematically. If only some of the facts hadn't gotten trampled on the way to film illustriousness. With the exception of John Williams' overemphatic score – Oliver Stone films need anything but overemphasis – JFK's technical and artistic details are put in place to extraordinary effect. Joe Hutshing and Pietro Scalia's editing »

3 April 2015 4:03 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Two wildly different movies will be getting stage musical adaptations in the near future, with a Broadway version of the 1993 comedy classic Groundhog Day being developed, while Disney Parks is making a Tangled musical for their Disney Cruise Lines. The Groundhog Day musical is being developed by composer-lyricist Tim Minchin, director Matthew Warchus, choreographer Peter Darling and set and costume designer Rob Howell, the team behind the current Broadway adaptation of the 1996 movie Matilda. They will all collaborate on the play's book with Danny Rubin, who came up with the original Groundhog Day story and co-wrote the screenplay with director Harold Ramis.

Scott Rudin will produce the play with Andre Ptaszysnki's Whistle Pig Productions and Columbia Stage Live. The original movie centered on a weatherman (Bill Murray) who is assigned to cover the Groundhog Day ceremony in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, where he gets caught in a time loop and is »

Wgaw To Honor The Late Harold Ramis With Screen Laurel Award

13 January 2015 10:23 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

The Writers Guild of America, West has chosen late screenwriter-director-actor-producer Harold Ramis to receive its Laurel Award for Screenwriting Achievement, awarded to a Writers Guild member who has advanced the literature of motion pictures and made outstanding contributions to the profession of the screenwriter. Erica Mann Ramis and family will accept the award on Ramis’ behalf at the Writers Guild Awards ceremony on Saturday, February 14. Harold Ramis  passed away on February 24, 2014 at the age of 69. From today’s announcement:

Harold Ramis changed the face of comedy. His death last year deprived us of his unique way of seeing the world, at once hilarious and wise. From his early work with National Lampoon and Sctv through Animal House, Meatballs, Caddyshack, and Ghostbusters, Ramis’ voice was strong, clear, outrageous in all the best ways. His unrealized projects – an adaptation of Confederacy of Dunces, a biopic about Emma Goldman – leave us aching with »
