Snoop Dogg Points a Gun At ‘F*cking Clown’ Trump in New Music Video — Watch

13 March 2017 7:20 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Snoop Dogg has dropped a new music video for his rework of “Lavender,” the single from Canadian group Badbadnotgood, featuring Kaytranada. Dubbed “Lavender (Nightfall Remix),” the concept of the video came from YouTube star Jesse Wellens, who co-directed the clip with James DeFina.

On the video — which was released on Sunday via Wellens’ popular YouTube channel PrankvsPrank — everyone is a clown, except for Snoop. It features actor Michael Rapaport as a father (and a clown), who gets shot by a police officer on his way to work, all as a bystander records the incident. As reported by Billboard, the scene was inspired by the shooting of Philando Castile last July, which was streamed live on Facebook by his girlfriend.

9 March 2017 1:53 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Indie animation king Bill Plympton just couldn’t stay away from “The Simpsons.”

The Oscar nominee returns to animate the couch gag for Sunday’s episode, “22 for 30,” which is a spoof of Espn’s acclaimed sports documentary series “30 for 30.”

Plympton has created a “Simpsons” couch gag gig three times before. The first was for the episode “Beware My Cheating Bart,” in which Homer has a relationship with the couch, which leads to an epic tale of heartbreak and a baby couch. For the episode “Black Eyed, Please,” Plympton paid homage to 1930s gangster chic by imagining the Simpsons clan with weapons, ready to defend their turf. Finally, with “Married to the Blob,” the family sits on the couch as Maggie changes their surrounding using the TV remote control.

Robot Chicken Creates Couch Gag for ‘The Simpsons’ — Watch

16 February 2017 3:54 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Most would agree that “The Simpsons'” best days are behind it, but the series still has its moments nearly three decades into its record-breaking run. Often these revolve around the couch gag, the latest of which was made by the “Robot Chicken” team and concerns the ubiquitous sailboat painting that “really tied the room together.” Watch below.

After realizing said artwork (which only Homer seems to miss) is no longer there, our buffoonish hero goes in search of it in a fourth wall–breaking bit. He walks off the “Simpsons” set and onto several others: one clearly meant to evoke “South Park” (“out of the mouths of babes,” Homer says in response to their expletive-filled shouts), another featuring the California Raisins (whom Homer accidentally melts in a fire) and finally the one where his painting has ended up. »

This week in “The Simpsons Did It”: Lady Gaga’s halftime performance during last night’s Super Bowl, which saw the performer flying through the air on wires. The same thing happened in 2012’s “Lisa Goes Gaga” episode, though in that performance the singer was also wearing a Madonna-esque flame-spewing bra. Watch a side-by-side comparison below.

This latest example was fairly easy to see coming, however: Gaga is well known for both her theatrical performances and out-there fashion choices. »

Galloway on Film: The Greatest Executive

31 January 2017 6:40 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

In 1937, F. Scott Fitzgerald arrived in Hollywood, broke and alcoholic, but full of hope that the City of Stars would somehow revive his career and turn him into an important screenwriter.

Things didn’t quite work out that way. When he failed to master the screenplay form, a lucrative contract with MGM was allowed to expire, and Fitzgerald, just like many other writers, had to subsist on freelance work. To add insult to injury, at one low point he searched in vain for copies of his novels so that his lover, the gossip columnist Sheilah Graham, could read them, only »

Z: The Beginning of Everything: The Bullshit Artist’s Wife

30 January 2017 10:46 AM, PST | MTV Newsroom | See recent MTV Newsroom news »

It took a certain kind of woman to marry a not-yet-published F. Scott Fitzgerald: gorgeous, intelligent, optimistic, self-assured, and a bit of a dupe. When Zelda Sayre (Christina Ricci) met her future husband (David Hoflin) — according to the half-hour bio-drama Z: The Beginning of Everything (Amazon) — he was already a hot mess: a...

‘Z: The Beginning of Everything’ Review: Season 1 Loves Zelda Fitzgerald Too Much to Get Real

29 January 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

There’s a problem with the first season of “Z: The Beginning of Everything” that is reminiscent of, of all the unexpected things in this world, “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.” (Please, give this a chance.)

Batman v. Superman” is a notable film for how, scene by scene, it is a movie that actively dislikes its characters — from little touches to big choices, its only source of joy seems to be found in tearing down beloved icons into unrecognizable shells of themselves.

“Z” does not have that problem. In fact, it has the opposite dilemma. The Amazon Prime series, created by Nicole Yorkin and Dawn Prestwich, is just a little bit too in love with its leading lady. And while “Bvsdoj’s” antipathy towards its leads sucked all the joy out of the picture, “Z’s” infatuation with Zelda Fitzgerald detracts from its depiction of one of literature’s most fascinating and complicated women. »

Exclusive: Christina Ricci Reinvents Herself Again

25 January 2017 7:30 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

On January 27, Christina Ricci will make her debut as Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald on Amazon's new series Z: The Beginning of Everything, a fictional account of the flamboyant socialite who swept F. Scott Fitzgerald, one of the literary geniuses of the 20th century, off his feet.

“I would never be cast in this part,” Ricci says frankly about playing Fitzgerald on the series, which she not only stars on but co-developed and produces. “With this, I created my own opportunity because this is not a part I would’ve been cast in in a million years.”

Although parts may have beckoned toward a more traditional leading-lady rise to stardom early in her career, Ricci, now 36, has come to terms with the fact that she didn’t fit into that role. “I am not considered a romantic lead by traditional standards,” she says. “I've never been cast in a rom-com or a romance or anything like that.

TV Review: ‘Z: The Beginning of Everything’ on Amazon

24 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The adjectives “dutiful” and “conventional” were not often applied to Zelda Fitzgerald. They could, however, be applied to “Z: The Beginning of Everything,” a handsome but superficial Amazon series about the life of the fascinating woman who married F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Back when they were the toast of not just the literary world but the 20th Century’s nascent celebrity culture, Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald were both regarded as rebels — though it could be argued that Zelda was the more subversive of the two. Unconcerned with respectability and bourgeois rituals, she was a well-bred, witty woman who enjoyed shocking New York social circles just after her husband hit it big with his first novel, “This Side of Paradise.”

But the former Zelda Sayre began exhibiting her rule-breaking ways much earlier, in the stringent environment of Montgomery, Alabama, where a lady who went out without donning thick stockings was considered scandalous. Well »

Exclusive: In yet another instance in which F. Scott Fitzgerald is proved decidedly wrong, enter the members of the 70s rock band Gunhill Road.

‘The Squid and the Whale’ Blu-ray Review (Criterion)

Stars: Jesse Eisenberg, Jeff Daniels, Laura Linney, Owen Kline, William Baldwin, David Benger, Anna Paquin | Written and Directed by Noah Baumbach

As they bicker over the tennis net and over the dinner table, there’s tension in the Berkman family from the start. The year is 1986, and a pair of middle class Brooklyn parents are on the cusp of divorce. As we discover, it’s been coming for a long time. Joan (Laura Linney) had an affair for four years. Bernard (Jeff Daniels) is jealous of his wife’s blossoming career, as he finds his own on a down slope.

Upon hearing the devastating news of the separation, the younger son Frank (Owen Kline) starts speaking obscenely and behaving obscener. His older brother Walt (Jesse Eisenberg) is more measured in his grief, but his cocky swagger is no more convincing a mask for the pain. As Joan and Bernard bellow, »

16 Sneaky Literary References in Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events

16 January 2017 8:35 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The first season of Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events is littered with Easter eggs that every major fan will excitedly gobble up. However, while most of those allude to the Asoue book series, there is a whole slew of additional Easter eggs that reference other famous works of fiction. Easily missed, these literary references can be found in character names, settings, witty dialogue, and more. Take a look below to see the ones we spotted! The Bad Beginning (Episodes one and two) The last name Baudelaire is a nod to 19th century French poet Charles Baudelaire. His most notable work is a collection of poems entitled Les Fleurs de Mal, or The Flowers of Evil, which considered how to find the beauty in miserable circumstances. Furthermore, one of the poems in the collection is titled "La Beatricé," which could be where the Baudelaire's matriarch got her name. Mr. Poe »
