23 June 2015 5:15 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

As always, Legendary Entertainment is bringing the goods to Comic-Con.

TV Review: Comedy Central’s ‘Another Period’

22 June 2015 7:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There’s an inherent developmental disconnect in “Another Period,” a Comedy Central series that seeks to spoof programs like “Downton Abbey,” laboring to find the elusive sweet spot between a knowing send-up for those who watch such fare and a farcical take-down for those who wouldn’t be caught dead doing so. Series creators/stars Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome have certainly attracted a first-rate cast to assist with the silliness, only to settle for the below-the-belt aspects of turn-of-the-century mores. There are amusing moments, but the conceit ultimately seems better suited to a “Saturday Night Live” sketch than another series. Period.

Set in Newport, R.I. in 1902, the show focuses on the Bellacourts, a filthy rich family vastly outnumbered by their doting servants, whom they generally treat like furniture. Indeed, a sexual tryst is dragged out as the two upper-crust participants wait for their butlers and maids, silently standing watch, »

With 'Entourage' arriving soon, we examine classic films about boys being boys

24 May 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A few nights ago, Warner Bros. hosted a very canny event that our own Louis Virtel attended at the Playboy Mansion, a screening of "Entourage" that may have felt like virtual reality for those who attended. While I doubt being surrounded by scantily clad bunnies influenced Louis one way or another on the film, it's likely you'll see a number of reviews that are perhaps more enthusiastic than they would otherwise be, and it'd be hard to blame anyone who fell for it. One of the reasons the setting seemed so right for that particular film is because much of the charge of "Entourage" is watching the core ensemble swagger their way through Hollywood, doing whatever they want and rarely if ever facing any consequences as a result. It's always presented with a wink and a smile, just a case of boys being boys. We live in a world right »

'Review' premiere, 'Key & Peele' return lead Comedy Central summer plans

20 May 2015 9:53 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Riding an impressive hot streak of originals, Comedy Central is looking to continue that momentum with a slew of summer premieres and returns including the long-awaited -- by some people, at least -- return of "Review." Starring Andy Daly as life reviewer Forrest MacNeil, "Review" was my No.2 show of 2014 and it came in at No.4 on Sepinwall's Top 10. The first season, which had already been held for a while, premiered last March and was done by the start of May. Season 2 premieres on Thursday, July 30 at 10 p.m. and Comedy Central's season description teases life experiences including "bare-knuckle brawling, joining the mile high club, and even leading a cult." Excellent. What of the other premieres? *** Created by Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome, "Another Period" is a Gilded Age satire featuring Christina Hendricks, Michael Ian Black, David Koechner, Jason Ritter and more and it'll premiere on Tuesday, June 23 at 10:30 p. »

Funny Or Die Brings Cable-Style “Bundles” To Everyday Life In New Sketch

13 May 2015 2:34 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Funny or Die has a new video that cord-cutters and cord-nevers will likely appreciate. The comedy site, which boasts a YouTube channel of over 1.5 million subscribers and many more followers on its website, released a clip called “If Everything Was Bundled Like Cable,” starring David Koechner.

In the video, Koechner (known for his roles in Anchorman and The Office) plays an average American citizen who is bewildered by how he and his wife must pay for cable channels they don’t even watch. Koechner then finds out what it’s like in a world where bundles reign supreme. For example, an ice cream parlor refuses to sell Koechner individual scoops. Then his character is forced to pay $657 for all the spots in a parking lot, even though he only used one.

Funny or Die’s sketch, while comical, is also very poignant in its representation of the absurdity of cable companies’ bundling obsession. »

Justified, 6.13: “The Promise” ends the series on a heartfelt, elegiac note

14 April 2015 10:54 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Justified, Season 6, Episode 13: “The Promise”

Written by Graham Yost, Fred GolanDave Andron and Benjamin Cavell

Directed by Adam Arkin

Aired Tuesdays at 10pm Et on FX

Midway through “The Promise,” the final episode of Justified, a dog-eared copy of George V. Higgins’ The Friends of Eddie Coyle is passed between Marshals Raylan Givens and Tim Gutterson. While there are stricter parallels to be drawn between the novel, which tells the story of the dwindling fortunes of an aging, low-level hood trying to turn informant (or with the excellent film of the same name, featuring a stellar performance from the legendary Robert Mitchum), the prominent placement of the novel is a nod – one of many in this episode – to a mostly bygone era of genre storytelling, one which placed a premium on character, wit and dialogue above flowery prose or postmodern structural games. “The Promise” shows us the Higgins »

Series finale review: 'Justified' - 'The Promise': Fire in the hole!

14 April 2015 8:04 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Justified" has come to an end. Yesterday, I published some overall thoughts on the series. Tonight, I have an interview with Graham Yost about who lived, who died, and why, and I have a review of the series finale coming up just as soon as we identify the worst possible ice cream flavor... "We dug coal together." -Boyd Given all the plates left spinning at the end of "Collateral," Yost — who wrote the finale with longtime "Justified" writers Fred Golan, Dave Andron and Benjamin Cavell — could have very easily gone to FX and requested 90 minutes or more in order to properly wrap things up. Instead, "The Promise" clocks in at only a few minutes longer than average (there was at least one episode last season that was longer than this), and it all but concludes the season's many intersecting plotlines by the halfway point, even putting on "You'll Never Leave »

A sad reaction to Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart's 'Get Hard'

25 March 2015 12:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There is a moment that really stuck with me from the interview HitFix's Louis Virtel conducted with Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart for "Get Hard" which posted yesterday. Virtel asks, "You are both very smart and funny people.  During the scene in the movie where you kind of do a mockingly effeminate voice [to Hart] and you gag at a dick as though it's the worst thing that can happen to a straight guy [to Ferrell], in a gay situation, did you think: this is mildly mean spirited or at the very least, a little bit dated?" Before Hart responds, the camera holds on Ferrell's face for a just a moment. Ferrell doesn't look annoyed. He doesn't look angry.  He isn't trying to force a smile. He just looks sort of sad. "Get Hard," which Drew McWeeny reviewed out of SXSW, is the directorial debut of longtime screenwriter Etan Cohen ("Tropic Thunder") and has a pretty simple set up. »
