Box-Office Alternatives: Idiocracy

26 March 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

If there's one thing a movie starring Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart guarantees, it's mixed-to-negative critical reception and decent-to-stellar audience reaction. Both seem like strong possibilities this Friday with the release of the duo's new comedy Get Hard (2015), in which a wealthy tycoon (Ferrell) insists that his employee (Hart) show him the ins-and-outs of how to survive in prison after he himself is sentenced. Early screenings of Get Hard have brought claims of homophobia and racial stereotyping, yet the popularity of the movie's two stars should be enough to potentially carry the comedy to a healthy run at the box office.

Should Get Hard succeed, it will be another victory for director and co-writer Etan Cohen, who has found success writing such hits as Tropic Thunder and Men In Black 3. Yet for a select few, his collaboration with Mike Judge on the hilarious and somewhat horrifying Idiocracy (2006) remains his best work. »

DVD Review – Silicon Valley: The Complete First Season

25 March 2015 7:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen reviews Silicon Valley: The Complete First Season…

In the high-tech gold rush of modern Silicon Valley, the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success. A comedy partially inspired by Mike Judge’s own experiences as a Silicon Valley engineer in the late 1980s.

Remember those kids in school? The ones who were glued to computer screens instead of playing football with the “cool” kids? Of course you do. They were usually picked on, beaten up, bullied to the point of being afraid to leave their bedroom. Perhaps you were one of them. Perhaps you were one of the kids who kicked their heads in during lunch. Well, those nerdy computer kids now rule the world. Silicon Valley is about those kids. And it’s brilliantly funny.

Like The Big Bang Theory for grown-ups, Silicon Valley: The Complete First Season focuses on »

Watch the ‘Silicon Valley’ Season Two Trailer

24 March 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Mike Judge’s critically acclaimed tech comedy Silicon Valley is back for a second season. Season one ended with the success in Silicon Valley‘s “live-in start up business incubator,” as Pied Piper triumphed at TechCrunch Disrupt once Richard Hendricks (Thomas Middleditch) wrote some inspired last minute code to help their compression algorithm outperform the rival Nucleus software owned by the company Hendricks and Donald “Jared” Dunn used to work for.

HBO has now released a trailer for the new season. This season begins with the CEO of Hooli and the Nucleus project, Gavin Belson (Matt Ross), preparing his company for a showdown with Hendricks, an ex-employee. The Pied Piper crew are also shown tooling up for their business battle. Actor Chris Diamantopoulos (Arrested Development‘s Marky Bark) plays an over-tanned, designer clothes wearing, sports car driving, investor who hopes to “Get Pied Piper out there” through “Brand awareness” and “Synergy, »

‘Silicon Valley: The Complete First Season’ Blu-ray Review

Stars: Thomas Middleditch, Martin StarrKumail NanjianiZach WoodsT.J. MillerChristopher Evan WelchMatt Ross | Created by Alec Berg, Mike Judge

I’m a fan of The Big Bang Theory and I always will be, but the criticism it often gets for mocking “nerds” is something hard to defend it from, because a lot of the humour is obviously doing just that.  What we need is a comedy with a little more intelligence where it’s not just about the geeks being awkward around women, but actually smartly satirises a culture that is now seen as the new “cool”.  Step forward Alec Berg and Mike Judge’s Silicon Valley: The Complete First Season.

Review: 'Get Hard' goes limp and relies on hate for its humor

16 March 2015 7:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Austin - It will come as no surprise to anyone who reads me on a regular basis that I am a Will Ferrell fan. Even before he made the jump to leading man in the world of features, I was already fully onboard. There's just something about the particular brand of lunacy that so many of his characters embody that entertains me completely. There are few things I enjoy more than seeing what happens when Ferrell and Adam McKay are turned loose on something together, two halves of one mutant brain, the combination of the two resulting in something remarkable. Etan Cohen, you are no Adam McKay. I actually do like some of Cohen's work. "Idiocracy," for example, is a script I adore, co-written by Cohen and Mike Judge, and "Tropic Thunder" is tremendous. But "Get Hard" is impossible to defend thanks to a disastrous choice made early on in the development process. »

Austin Film Society Fetes Lone Star Heroes

The Austin Film Society, organizers of the Texas Film Awards, have more than a few milestones to celebrate this year. Not only the 30th anniversary of the Society and the 15th anniversary of the Awards themselves, it’s also the capper on a banner year for Texans in film, with Lone Star natives Wes Anderson and Society cofounder Richard Linklater both nominated for director at last month’s Oscars.

As part of the Texas Film Hall of Fame induction ceremony, hosted by Mike Judge, Variety executive editor Steven Gaydos will present a creative achievement award to Linklater’s “Boyhood,” along with posthumous honors to Christopher Evan Welch and L.M. Kit Carson.

Michael Bolton Remakes ‘Office Space’ in His Own Image (Video)

10 March 2015 5:16 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Ok, so maybe Michael Bolton is a semi-talented “ass clown.” “When a Man Loves a Woman” singer Bolton recently took time out from soothing the nation’s soul with his honey-coated pipes long enough to film a Funny or Die video, in which he injects himself into the 1999 Mike Judge cult classic “Office Space.” See video: Leonard Nimoy Channels the Dude in Bruno Mars Clip As “Office Space” fans well recall, one of the thieving nerds at Initech, played by David Herman, shared a name with Bolton, much to the employee’s chagrin, but much to the delight of a pair of consultants. »

Watch The Real Michael Bolton Hilariously Recreate Office Space Scenes

10 March 2015 1:33 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Mike Judge's Office Space isn't exactly a film that celebrates the career of singer Michael Bolton - actually going out of its way to call him a "no-talent ass clown" (one of my favorite cinematic insults) - but it's to Bolton's credit that he takes the jabs in stride. How do we know this? Because he actually agreed to recreate the key scenes in the film that mock his name. Above you'll find one of the latest videos to hit Funny or Die, and while it's not exactly going to surprise you in any major way, that doesn't stop it from being funny and well put together. As the title "Office Space with Michael Bolton" suggests, the clip features the singer edited into some of the most memorable scenes from the cult comedy, and in addition to being a rather skilled edit, it's also humorous to watch Bolton poke »

Votd: Michael Bolton recreates scenes from ‘Office Space’

10 March 2015 8:41 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Office Space with Michael Bolton from Funny Or Die

Even after 16 years, Mike Judge’s Office Space has endured as a cult film way larger and with a bigger impact on popular culture than it ever had in 1999. And while Jennifer Aniston and red, Swingline staplers have all gone on to bigger and better things, the one star that did not have a resurgence as a function of that film was Michael Bolton.

Well, it’s good to see the pop singer has a sense of humor at calling himself an “ass clown”, as for a video for Funny or Die, Bolton has superimposed himself into all “other” Michael Bolton’s scenes, including taking a few blows at that damn copier. Watch the video above.

And I think I’ll just leave this here:

Texas Film Awards: The Honorees and Their Best Work

9 March 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

The Austin Film Society hosts its annual Texas Film Awards, one of the most high-profile events in the city, on Thursday night, March 12. This year marks the awards' 15th year and to celebrate its "crystal anniversary" of honoring the best in Texas film, honorees include some of the biggest names in the industry from actors to producers to writers. Local filmmaker Mike Judge is this year's emcee.

The event itself is sold out, but a few tickets are still available to The Texas Party, the after-party featuring a DJ set by Wooden Wisdom, aka Elijah Wood and Zach Cowie.

In anticipation of Thursday's event, I thought a spotlight on each of the honorees and some of their finest contributions to the cinematic world was more than in order.

Precious few screenwriters in the history of film have been gifted with a voice as unique and diverse as Carson's. »
