8 December 2014 12:10 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Felix and Meira, an unconventional love story between a lonely Montreal man and a married Hasidic Jewish mother, emerged the big winner at the Whistler Film Fest awards brunch Dec. 7, sweeping up all four Borsos Awards including the best Canadian feature, best screenplay, best director for Maxime Giroux, and with the best performance award going to Hadas Yaron.

The Borsos Awards, which include $15,000 in cash and $15,000 in post-production services from Encore, are Canada’s second biggest cash prize for film. The pic previously took the best Canadian film award at the Toronto Intl. Film Festival.

Wff 2014: Mountain Men Brings Laughs to Survival Drama With Great Effect [Review]

8 December 2014 10:19 AM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

If you need proof that everyone is entitled to a second chance, at least in the world of movie making, you need took no further than Cameron Labine. I hated, and I mean despised, Labine's Control Alt Delete a few years ago (I know the idea of a guy who, quite literally has sex with his computer, might sound like fun, but let me assure you, it is anything but) but the concept of his follow-up feature, also starting his famous and generally very funny brother, Tyler Labine, sounded too good to pass up.

Mountain Men stars Labine as Toph, one half of an estranged duo of brothers who still lives in the small town the family has long called home. Chace Crawford, of "Gossip Girl" fame, is Cooper, the other brother. The younger brother who escaped small town living for the big cit [Continued ...] »

Shelf Life: Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil

30 November 2014 7:00 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Every week, Shelf Life sees Tom White select and talk about a movie that lives on his DVD shelf, one he thinks we should all see. Like any genre, horror movies rely on a number of tropes and cliches, the most famous and recognisable being the creepy hillbilly characters who usually the portents of doom for the beautiful, usually college age fodder. But what if those conventions were turned on their head, and we were expected to root for the rednecks? Well, that exact question is asked, and answered to great effect, in one of the finest horror comedies of recent years, 2010's Tucker & Dale vs. Evil. Tucker & Dale vs. Evil starts off like any other horror movie, introducing us to a somewhat likable group of young friends on their way to party it up at a weekend camping trip. It's when they stop at a run down gas station »

24 great comedy shows that deserve more love

13 November 2014 3:37 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We asked Den Of Geek’s writers to recommend brilliant comedy shows that deserve to have more of a fuss made about them. Here they are...

Banging a drum about stuff we love is more or less our remit on Den Of Geek - hence what many readers have started referring to as the ‘inexplicably regular' appearance of Statham, squirrels and Harold Bishop from Neighbours on these pages.

To that end then, we asked our writers which comedy shows (past and present, UK or otherwise, on TV, radio, or online…) deserved more praise, and here are the ones they chose. You might already like them too, or you might discover something new to dig out and enjoy. That’s the fun of it.

Please note that this list isn’t ranked in any order, nor is it exhaustive. It’s compiled from the opinions of a group of different people, »

Paul Scheer to launch new podcasting network from Earwolf Media

4 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

In the insular world of podcasting—particularly the even more insular world of comedy podcasting—Earwolf Media looms large. The podcasting network home of Comedy Bang! Bang!, How Did This Get Made?, Professor Blastoff, and many others, and it's been one of the catalysts (and beneficiaries) of the podcasting revolution of the past few years. Now parent company Midroll Media is doubling down on the medium: Tuesday, it launches a sister network to Earwolf, this one focusing on pop culture and going by the name Wolfpop. Helping guide the whole project is actor-comedian (and co-host of How Did This Get Made? »

From 'Big' to 'Marley & Me': We weigh in on TV's remake fad

29 October 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I generally pay as much attention to the broadcast network development season as I do to the baseball draft. Though the shows that actually survive development are much closer to airing chronologically than most baseball draftees are to the majors, the winnowing process is just as brutal in both cases. On average, a given network will hear 3-400 pitches a year, order scripts for 60-70 of them, make 8-12 pilots and put roughly between a half dozen and a dozen of them on the air. So I’ve usually found development not worth worrying about until shows are actually ordered to series and scheduled. That said, it’s been tough to ignore this fall’s development season, where it seems like every day for the past few weeks, my Twitter feed has blown up a few times an afternoon with news of a familiar movie or TV property being adapted »

'Grace: The Possession' Interview with Joel David Moore

29 October 2014 9:57 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since his breakout role in 2004's Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, Joel David Moore has been entertaining audience with his diverse array of talents that span several genres, from comedy (Grandma's Boy) to horror (Hatchet) to serious dramas (Beyond a Reasonable Doubt) to the biggest movie of all time (Avatar). He has even gone behind the camera to bring us the phenomenal indie Spiral, which he co-directed with Adam Green and he currently stars on the ABC drama series Forever. The actor goes back to his indie horror roots with the thriller Grace: The Possession, currently available on DVD and Digital HD, where he plays Luke, a young priest who helps the title character (Alexia Fast) with her "demons," literally.

I recently had the chance to speak with Joel David Moore about Grace: The Possession, the unique first-person/Pov perspective the film was shot in, future projects and much more. »

31 Days of Horror: ‘Tucker And Dale vs. Evil’ is dead set on fun

Tucker And Dale vs. Evil’ Film Poster

Tucker and Dale vs. Evil

Written by Eli Craig and Morgan Jurgenson

Directed by Eli Craig

Canada, 2010

Over the years, Canadian film and television has gotten a reputation for being something that leaves a lot to be desired. It’s often depicted as low budget productions with mediocre acting, and a film grain to make you cringe. Except more and more, outstanding Canadian cinema is making headlines in Hollywood for being cutting edge, artistic, meaningful, not to mention downright funny. From the classic Quebec film C.R.A.Z.Y., the franco-anglo production Bon Cop Bad Cop to The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz, Canadian films are more than just bad film stereotypes; they’re innovative, imaginative, and a joy to watch.

And that goes for their genre cinema too.

Why You Should Get Hulu Plus

10 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

There’s no denying the fact that online streaming platforms are the thing of now. Unrestrained by the finite schedules of broadcast, streaming networks, such as Netflix, are offering fans the opportunity to watch old (and original) programming on their TV, computers, or phones. Thanks to the success of Orange Is the New Black and House of Cards and the hype surrounding upcoming series, The Cosmopolitans and Transparent, Netflix and Amazon Prime are getting a lot of attention while Hulu has quietly ramped up its offerings — making it one platform everyone needs to get on board with.

With its own library of original shows (The Hotwives of Orlando) and online exclusives (Misfits, The Only Way Is Essex), going Plus is one thing you undoubtedly need to do this fall. Here’s why:

DVD Review: Deadbeat: Season One

28 August 2014 1:56 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Good TV shows are hard to come by. Well, it used to be that way, but these days we’re given such great Television as Hannibal, True Detective, Penny Dreadful and so on, that it seems that we’re living in a great time for TV. With such dramatic shows kicking ass nonstop, the amount of genuinely funny TV programs seem to be dwindling, as viewers are more interested in being bummed and moody (don’t me wrong, I’m definitely not complaining) that in laughing their asses off. Enter Hulu’s original series, Deadbeat. With how many films and shows that Tyler Labine (Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil, TV’s Reaper) has stolen with great supporting roles, it was only a matter of time before he was given one to lead, and after watching the entire first season of Deadbeat, I can say: he does one hell of a job. »

Exclusive Interview: Tyler Labine Talks Playing a Medium on Deadbeat and the Status of the Tucker & Dale vs. Evil Sequel

27 August 2014 10:26 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

A stoner and a slacker, Kevin “Pac” Pacalioglu has trouble paying rent, yet has the awesome ability to communicate with ghosts. Tyler Labine stars in Deadbeat, a Hulu original series. With Lionsgate releasing Season 1 of the show on DVD (plus Digital) exclusively at Target this week, I had a chance to chat with Tyler about Deadbeat, the status of the Tucker & Dale vs. Evil sequel, and more.

Kevin “Pac” Pacalioglu has the impressive ability to see and talk with ghosts, and he’s also a stoner and a bit of a slacker. What attracted you to playing this unique take on a medium?

Tyler Labine: The role came to me as an offer through Dakota Pictures, who produced it. They sent me the first four scripts to give me an idea of what the show was going to be like. I think they had eight written. After reading the first four, »

Cat Deeley ditches fun side for bad girl role in 'Deadbeat'

23 April 2014 9:59 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

New York (AP) — U.K.-born and bred Cat Deeley has found a place in Hollywood, thanks to hosting the Fox dance competition show, "So You Think You Can Dance," which will launch its 11th season next month. The Emmy-nominated TV personality also has a role in the Hulu original comedy series "Deadbeat." A 10-episode first season is posted on the website.

He finds a nemesis in Camomile, played by Deeley, a psychic who has built an empire out of faking her ability to communicate with the dead. "My character is a real baddie," said Deeley, 37, in a recent interview. "She is rotten to the core. She's vile, she's manipulative but she plays America's sweetheart, giving people closure."

Review: Deadbeat is Frighteners-like Fun Minus the Scares

11 April 2014 7:36 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Nearly a year ago, Netflix put out it’s first (of hopefully) many original horror titles with Hemlock Grove. While it was received with much polarity, Hulu is now gracing us with their own original genre title Deadbeat and it is a whole different animal. Deadbeat is a multi-camera horror comedy from Cody Heller and Brett Konner, two of the main writers of the FX dark comedy Wilfred. The ten episode series tells the story of Kevin Pacalioglu (or Pac), played by Tyler Labine (Tucker and Dale vs Evil, Reaper), a stoner medium who is consistently behind on his rent and best friends with his drug dealer, conveniently named Roofie (Brandon T. Jackson). The central plot of the show focuses on Pacalioglu discovering that his long time crush and rumored celebrity medium Camomile White (played by Cat Deeley) is a fraud and the fallout from the discovery.

Hulu Original Series Boss Charlotte Koh Departs Amid Shake-Up

9 April 2014 4:03 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Charlotte Koh, head of content development at Hulu Originals, has departed the streaming company. The move comes just more than a week after Hulu hired seasoned TV development executive Craig Erwich. The former president of Warner Horizon was tapped as Svp and head of content March 31, tasked with leading the content and programming strategy for Hulu and Hulu Plus as one of the first major hires by new CEO Mike Hopkins. That move apparently made things more crowded with Koh, who helped launch Hulu originals like animated The Awesomes (renewed for Season 2 to air this summer), comedy The Wrong Mans and docu-series Behind The Mask. (Koh unveiled 17 original series on tap for 2014 in a January blog post.) But that push came at a time when Netflix and Amazon made major strides establishing slates of network-quality comedy and drama series, and the hiring of Erwich signaled Hulu’s intention to become »

Hulu's new original comedy series Deadbeat is both familiar and different at the same time. 

Although the show features a typical TV conceit — a protagonist has one amazing skill, but the rest of his life is a disaster — when you add in ghosts and a large quantity of controlled substances, you get something you'd be hard pressed to ever find on your TV dial.
