'Community': Best parody episodes from 'Glee' to 'Law & Order'

30 December 2013 11:32 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

It's not six seasons and a movie, but "Community" is going into Season 5. What better time to take a look back at the show so far and honor the best of the best? These six episodes feature the best of "Community" parodies, from "Law & Order" to "Glee" and more.

6. 'Basic Rocket Science' ('Apollo 13,' 'The Right Stuff')

When is product placement more than just product placement? How about when advertising Kentucky Fried Chicken in the context of "Apollo 13"?

5. 'Modern Warfare' ('28 Days Later,' 'Terminator,' 'The Matrix,' every disaster/apocalyptic movie ever)

Paintball goes horribly wrong at Greendale when the prize proves too good. And Jeff misses the breakdown of society while sleeping. Later paintball episodes ("A Fistful of Paintballs" and "A Few Paintballs More") offer parodies as well, but "Modern Warfare" started the trend and is arguably the best of the bunch. »

The top 25 underrated films of 2003

18 December 2013 5:29 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 19 Dec 2013 - 06:30

Our journey through the lesser-known films of the 2000s continues. This week, it's 2003...

It was the year that Arnold Schwarzenegger went from Terminator actor to Governor of California, and when The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King dominated the global box office with a gross of more than $1bn. 2003 was also the year the Wachowskis' Matrix trilogy thundered to a close, the year Freddy Krueger clashed with Jason Voorhees in, er, Freddy Vs Jason, and the year Pixar scored another hit with Finding Nemo.

But as you've probably gathered by now, 2003 was also a year of quite brilliant, less lucrative films. The movies we've included in this week's list were chosen for a variety of reasons - some were ignored in cinemas, while others were harshly treated by critics. Some were modestly popular or given awards on release, »

We’re The Millers Blu-ray Review

11 December 2013 2:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Rawson Marshall Thurber,

Starring: Jason Sudeikis, Jennifer Aniston, Will Poulter, Emma Roberts, Ed Helms, Nick Offerman, Kathryn Hahn, Molly C. Quinn, Tomer Sisley, Matthew Willig, Luis Guzman,

 Running Time: 112 minutes

Certificate: 15

It happens a few times a year. You see a trailer for an upcoming comedy that showcases plenty of laughs, decent characters, and actors you can imagine having great chemistry, only for the final piece to fall flat on its face and reveal that all the best moments were in the trailer. We’Re The Millers is Not one of those films. Instead, it’s a fast-paced comedy that lives up to the hype and often exceeds it, thanks to a very script and even funnier performances.

Sudeikis plays David Clark, your run of the mill pot dealer who ends up owing his supplier (Helms) a favour, and so must transport a “smidge” of pot from Mexico to the Us. »

The top 10 underappreciated action films of 2013

3 December 2013 2:57 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Top 10 Duncan Bowles 4 Dec 2013 - 06:45

Duncan salutes his personal choice of the 2013 action movies that deserved just a little more love...

This article contains spoilers for each of the films mentioned. Not necessarily big ones, but you might want to steer clear of The World's End entry if you've not seen that.

2013 has been a great year for action. We’ve had multiple comic book heroes fighting it out on the big screen, with Thor and Iron Man continuing Marvel’s run of great movies, the return of the R-rated antics of Kick-Ass and at long last an F-bomb loaded, bloody incarnation of The Wolverine (though it’s worth pointing out that the unrated edition in the UK only comes with the 3D version of the home release, a trend I hope doesn’t continue).

From a sci-fi angle, we’ve had robots fighting monsters in Pacific Rim and »

2 December 2013 6:07 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: Vinnie Jones and Luis Guzman have been tapped for recurring roles on ABC’s midseason drama series Mind Games, about two brothers — Ross (Christian Slater), a con man, and Clark (Steve Zahn), suffering from bipolar disorder — as they run a problem-solving firm that uses psychological manipulation.

Luis Guzman Talks Turbo, available now on Blu-ray and DVD

The DreamWorks Animation comedy Turbo features one of the finest ensemble of voice talent in recent memory. The story follows a snail (Ryan Reynolds) who dreams of becoming fast and winning the Indianapolis 500. After a freak accident, Turbo gets his wish, blessed with lightning-fast speed that takes him all the way to Indy to chase down his dreams, with the help of a taco vendor named Tito (Michael Pe&#241a). I recently had the chance to speak with Luis Guzm&#225n for the Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD release. The actor voices Angelo, Tito's brother and owner of a taco restaurant who disapproves of this whole adventure. Take a look at what he had to say below.

I was going through your very impressive resume, and there's not a whole lot of voice work on there. Is there something »

Exclusive: Ben Schwartz Talks Turbo

Ben Schwartz talks about voicing the snail Skidmark in the animated comedy Turbo, currently available on Blu-ray and DVD

Between playing the outlandish Jean-Ralphio on NBC's Parks and Recreation and Clyde Oberholt on House of Lies, the multi-talented Ben Schwartz somehow found time to lend his voice to a snail named Skidmark in Turbo, currently available on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD. Skidmark is a part of the race crew who helps Turbo (Ryan Reynolds), a snail who gets blessed with amazing speed after falling through a car engine, realize his dream of racing in the Indianapolis 500. I recently had the chance to speak with this actor about his voice recording process, future projects, and much more. Here's what he had to say.

I have to imagine, for an actor, it must be a dream to play a character named Skidmark.

Axel Foley & Detective Rosewood – Beverly Hills Cop

While Eddy Murphy and Judge Reinhold have made names for themselves in today’s pop culture, it’s easy to argue that Beverly Hills Cop launched their now successful film careers. With Axel as the mouth behind the duo, and Rosewood as the partner getting him out of trouble each time, there match up is as timeless as the film. »

He had the first auds roaring in the aisles with his seam-splitting debut. The Park City at Midnight launch of Black Dynamite catapulted Scott Sanders into the B-movie homage/slapstick elite. Fast forward to 2012, and the helmer found his sophomore project with cult actor Luis Guzman toplining. High grade schlock or a delirious action-comedy offering, details on the Lionsgate project have been mum: production got underway in June of 2012, there is no release date and not much news in the in what should have been its year of release. Has Aztec Warrior been pinned down because of extra work (see concept art here) or has it been prepped with a ribbon, marketing campaign for a slick Sundance delivery? We’ll soon find out.
