‘American Gods 1×04: Git Gone’ Review

17 hours ago | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Ricky Whittle, Ian McShane, Emily Browning, Crispin Glover, Bruce Langley, Yetide Badaki, Orlando Jones, Pablo Schreiber, Peter Stormare, Kristin Chenoweth, Gillian Anderson, Cloris Leachman | Created by Neil Gaiman | Developed for TV by Bryan Fuller

Twin Peaks may have been on many people’s minds on Sunday night, but that doesn’t mean that other television shows weren’t worth watching. American Gods took us for a trip back to the past, to reveal more about Laura Moon (Emily Browning).

Before Shadow (Ricky Whittle) met Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane) his main focus was Laura, his wife. Through the perspective of Laura, we now get to see how they met, the truth about her death and why she has returned to Shadow.

With Laura’s return, it is a good time to get to know the character, and this episode of American Gods does it very well. A woman bored with »

‘How To Talk To Girls At Parties’ With Elle Fanning & Nicole Kidman Is Gloriously Bananas [Cannes Review]

22 May 2017 7:09 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A hodgepodge of genres is splattered all over John Cameron Mitchell’s ludicrous (and ludicrously-titled) “How To Talk to Girls at Parties,” making for an incredibly brazen, outlandish, and totally bananas time at the movies. The creative collision of author Neil Gaiman and the director of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” is a match made in bizarro world heaven as ‘Girls’ thrusts a conventional coming-of-age premise into a romance-horror-comedy-sci-fi blender with the top off, twists the knob to max-level, and blasts the angriest Sex Pistols song you’ve ever heard in your life.

21 May 2017 10:12 PM, PDT | Behindwoods | See recent Behindwoods news »

Shruti Haasan most certainly made her presence felt at Cannes 2017 with her smashing red carpet looks. After doing two appearances for Sangamithra, Shruti was seen attending the premiere of "How To Talk To Girls at Parties" starring Elle Fanning and Nicole Kidman, directed by John Cameron Mitchell. She attended the premiere as a special guest of celebrated British novelist - Neil Gaiman, who wrote the short story that was the film's inspiration.

 

Says an inside source, "Neil Gaiman has been one of Shruti's all time favorite novelists. She's followed his work extensively and they had a chance to »

'American Gods' Star Defends Violent Flashback Episode: It's Not "Gore Porn"

21 May 2017 7:02 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers through the fourth episode of Starz's American Gods, "Git Gone."]

"There are those who will see the first four episodes and say we were being true to the book — and then we threw it in the trash for a little while." 

That's how executive producer Michael Green assesses the possible backlash to the latest episode of American Gods, the moody fantasy epic based on Neil Gaiman's novel of the same name. Green, who oversees the series alongside fellow executive producer Bryan Fuller, is referring to the fourth episode's focus on »

‘American Gods’: Neil Gaiman and Bryan Fuller on Fixing The Story’s Most Important Female Character

21 May 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s note: Spoilers for “American Gods” Episode 4, “Git Gone,” follow.]

Even Neil Gaiman knew, right from the beginning, that if “American Gods” was going to become a TV show, it needed to deal with the character of Laura Moon (played by Emily Browning). “I was telling [co-showrunner Bryan Fuller] that one was one of the things that I felt we had to do, in that first meeting back in 2014,” the iconic author told IndieWire.

And Fuller agreed with this sentiment, reflecting on his initial meeting with Gaiman. “One of the first things we talked about was the need to not necessarily defend Laura Moon, but allow the audience a better understanding of her,” Fuller said.

Why is that? Well, here’s one of the first things we learn about Laura: While her husband Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) was in jail for a crime she asked him to commit, she was killed while performing road-head on Shadow’s best friend Robbie (Dane Cook), with »

American Gods recap: season one, episode four – the unstoppable Laura Moon

21 May 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

What a bravura hour of television – a fascinating study of one unflappable, deplorable and yet somehow heroic woman

Spoiler alert: this blog is for people watching American Gods on Starz in the Us and Amazon Prime in the UK. Don’t read on unless you have watched episode four.

Well, my friends, that was a piece of bravura television. The latest episode of Bryan Fuller’s realisation of Neil Gaiman’s novel had some Gods and some America and found time to fill the screen with some trademark plasma. But in everything else – structure, pace, tone and even dialogue – this fourth episode was very different to those that preceded it. This was not a tale of a mythology reimagined. It wasn’t an hour of forgotten gods throwing zingers at each other. It was a study of a single, damaged, deplorable and yet somehow heroic woman.

New Clips from How to talk to Girls at Parties

21 May 2017 10:33 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Once upon a time, Neil Gaiman wrote a short piece, How to talk to Girls at Parties, which became a popular and frequently shared piece. It has gone on to be made into a film, starring Elle Fanning, Alex Sharp, Nicole Kidman, Ruth Wilson, and Matt Lucas and is screening this weekend at the Cannes Film Festival. The actual release is this fall but there have been a series of clips have been released and we’re sharing those here.

A funny and unique love story, How to Talk to Girls at Parties focuses on Enn, a shy teenage punk rocker in 1970s suburban London, and his two closest friends, Vic and John.  One night they all sneak into a party where they meet a group of intensely attractive, otherworldly girls; at first they think they’re from a cult, but eventually come to realize the girls are literally from another world—outer space. »

Bryan Fuller on How ‘Alien’ Helped Inspire His Career — and Why He Doesn’t Like ‘Covenant’

21 May 2017 10:02 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Alien: Covenant” dethroned “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” atop the box office this weekend and is currently sitting at 73% on Rotten Tomatoes, which is to say that a great many seem to have enjoyed Ridley Scott’s latest. Not among them is “Hannibal” and “American Gods” creator Bryan Fuller, who responded bluntly when asked whether he liked the film: “No.”

“I think the last two movies have had too many similarities to bad ‘Friday the 13th’ sequels and not enough similarities to good ‘Alien’ movies,” Fuller elaborated during Vulture Festival yesterday. Though he concedes that both “Prometheus” and “Covenant” are “masterfully executed on a technical level, gorgeously composed and produced,” Fuller finds himself frustrated by “really smart characters doing really stupid things.”

'How to Talk to Girls at Parties': Film Review | Cannes 2017

21 May 2017 9:04 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Imagine an anarchic collision between Derek Jarman's Jubilee and a gender-flipped Earth Girls Are Easy (anyone?), then toss in a hallucinogenic dash of Romeo and Juliet, and you're at least in an adjacent galaxy to John Cameron Mitchell's How to Talk to Girls at Parties. If those elements sound like random bedfellows, indeed they are in this scrappy blowout of Neil Gaiman's evocative short story of the same name, about a romance-starved South London teenager's night of otherworldly intoxication during the early days of punk.

There's a sprinkling of incidental pleasures here, among them Nicole Kidman as a jaded low »

Cannes Film Review: ‘How to Talk to Girls at Parties’

21 May 2017 8:07 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There are a few crucial things to know about “How to Talk to Girls at Parties.” It’s the first feature John Cameron Mitchell has directed in seven years, as well as his fourth overall — after “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” (2001), “Shortbus” (2006), and the uncharacteristically gloomy “Rabbit Hole” (2010). It’s based on a 2006 short story by the author and graphic novelist Neil Gaiman. It’s a punked-out sci-fi period-piece romance set in the London suburb of Croydon during the run-up to Queen Elizabeth II’s 1977 Silver Jubilee celebration (the one the Sex Pistols crashed by sailing up the Thames playing “God Save the Queen”). It tells the story of Enn (Alex Sharp), a pogo-ing punk who’s really a sweet kid next door, and how he falls for Zan (Elle Fanning), who belongs to a mysterious alien cult. The other thing to say about “How to Talk to Girls at Parties »

How to Talk to Girls at Parties review – Nicole Kidman goes peroxide punk in messy sci-fi caper

21 May 2017 6:09 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Kidman channels Toyah Wilcox – not to mention Dick Van Dyke – as part of an extravagantly muddled adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s aliens v punks short story

It’s 1977. Punk-rock lands on humdrum Croydon like some alien invasion, contaminating the kids and spooking the mutton-chopped oldies who are all busy gearing up for the Queen’s jubilee. It’s in the school and out on the estates. It’s upstairs in the bedroom, spinning records on a turntable. And yet, in Croydon at least, the arrival of punk appears to have coincided with a still-more dangerous visitation – that of a cult of intergalactic space-cannibals. In the darkness of the basement gig it’s hard to tell which tribe is which.

‘How to Talk to Girls at Parties’ Review: Elle Fanning Is a Free Love Alien in John Cameron Mitchell’s Bizarre Return to Form

21 May 2017 5:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Hokey aliens invade the seventies British punk scene in John Cameron Mitchell’s “How to Talk to Girls at Parties,” and the results are not nearly as ridiculous as that sounds — for a while, at least. Channeling the communal intimacy of “Shortbus” and the riotous musicality of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” Mitchell transforms Neil Gaiman’s sci-fi short story into a vibrant, edgy and at times outright goofy statement on tough antiestablishment rebels and freewheeling hippy vibes, suggesting that they’re not really all that that different.

At its center, scrawny, leather-clad punk teen Enn (Alex Sharp) veers across the grimy London suburb of Croydon alongside equally rambunctious pals John (Ethan Lawrence) and Vic (Abraham Lewis), heckling at passersby en route to a noisy concert. As English rockers The Damned blast on the soundtrack, the frame rate gets jagged and the kids seem to content to run wild in »

Neil Gaiman‘s comic book How to Talk to Girl at Parties is a fun read. It’s also a very short read. If adapted faithfully, it’d probably be a great short film. The director behind Rabbit Hole and Hedwig and the Angry Inch, John Cameron Mitchell, had the freedom of adapting the story into a narrative […]
