Emmys: Andy Samberg, Neil Patrick Harris, Jane Lynch Share Their Recipes for Hosting Success

12 September 2017 6:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The 67th annual Primetime Emmy Awards memorably opened with a pre-taped sketch that saw then-host Andy Samberg becoming increasingly overwhelmed with the amount of television shows his friends were watching but on which he was not caught up. The year was 2015, when there were about 409 scripted shows on broadcast, cable and streaming, and Samberg’s solution was to enter an underground bunker, armed with a stack of DVDs, determined not to come out until he knew all there was to know about the hottest shows of the year.

Though Samberg doesn’t consider himself a “particularly political” comedian, he does feel that the need to be topical ebbs and flows in comedy. The Emmys, which this year will be hosted by Stephen Colbert, offer a perfect opportunity to focus on what’s going on in the industry, if not also the world.

Cinematic Titanic: The Complete Collection Review

8 August 2017 1:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Brad Cook reviews Cinematic Titanic: The Complete Collection…

The end of Mystery Science Theater 3000’s first run didn’t spell the end of riffing on bad movies. Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett continued the tradition with The Film Crew and RiffTrax, and Joel Hodgson, Trace Beaulieu, Frank Coniff, Mary Jo Pehl, and J. Elvis Weinstein created Cinematic Titanic. Shout! Factory was previously involved in The Film Crew, and now they’ve put out all 12 movies riffed by Cinematic Titanic in a new Complete Collection.

Hodgson and his fellow riffers play themselves in Cinematic Titanic. The premise is that a mysterious organization, perhaps a corporation or a military force, has kidnapped them and forced them to riff on bad movies as part of a complicated plan that has something to do with a tear in the “electron scaffolding.” It seems a bit convoluted and unnecessary – I have always »

‘Stan Against Evil’ Teaser: Season 2 Promises a Weirder, Wackier Parade of Killer Demons — Watch

20 July 2017 3:25 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After a debut season that wrapped up with surprise deaths, time loops and plenty of ugly-looking demons, “Stan Against Evil” is ready for a follow-up.

Show creator Dana Gould joined cast members Janet Varney and John C. McGinley for a preview of what’s to come in the show’s second season. The IFC show is set in the town of Willard’s Mill, a quiet New England community suddenly overrun by vengeful spirits. Last season’s cliffhanger showed that the story was bigger than Stan or Sheriff Evie imagined, but the show would keep its focus on Willard’s Mill.

While delivering a commencement speech at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in Connecticut, Trump struck a defiant tone against his own critics in the media and told graduates: “You can’t let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams. … I guess that’s why we won.

Fantasy Fridays: Scully & Mfr Cast The Universal Monsters (Frankenstein, Dracula, Wolf Man, More!)

27 January 2017 10:30 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to another edition of Fantasy Fridays, where two real-life best friends get to play studio execs and cast talent for upcoming projects. We sort of take the same tact as the old Wizard Magazine features where we choose our dream picks for coveted roles without necessarily being tied down to realistic options. 

With the case of Universal's upcoming Cinematic Universe of Classic Monsters, we thankfully have a very wide palette to choose from since the studio has already secured some surprisingly high-profile talent. So that actually takes some of the "pie in the sky/fantasy" nature out of our picks, since it seems like they're able to get who ever they want to appear in these films.

So far, we've got The Mummy with stars like Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe. Then there's Johnny Depp, who's signed on for The Invisible Man. The sky's the limit for these monster flicks, »
