Ballers Recap: I’m on a Boat

5 July 2015 9:36 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

I swear, some people just don’t know how to act when they get on a boat! In the latest Ballers episode, “Move the Chains,” most of the action goes down on an expensive, expansive yacht, where varying degrees of ratchet behavior also happens.The vessel belongs to the rich and dickish Mr. Anderson (The West Wing’s Richard Schiff), Spencer, and Joe’s boss, who nervously asks their superior if they can use his yacht (named The Old Man, by the way) for a mixer to drum up more business with potential athlete clients. Thankfully, by the end of the episode, no damage is done to the boat. However, the people inside the boat inflict a lot of damage — mostly on themselves. Let’s start with the Spencer-Vernon-Reggie triangle. Even when Spencer extends an olive branch to start their business relationship over again and constantly assures Reggie he’s »

5 reasons why The Lost World: Jurassic Park isn’t as bad as you remember

23 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Simon Columb with 5 reasons why The Lost World: Jurassic Park isn’t as bad as you remember…

You did it. You planned to watch all three Jurassic Park films prior to watching Jurassic World and stalled after the first one.

There are problems with The Lost World: Jurassic Park, sure, but it is crucially a Spielberg film. Not executively-produced, but directed by the bearded cinematic deity himself. But you had to skip it because everyone ‘knows’ how bad it is. Truth be known, I don’t think it is that bad. I don’t see the horrendous train-wreck of a film, many believed it was…

The now-defunct podcast ‘Frankly, My Dear‘ once claimed – and I’m paraphrasing – “The Lost World is so bad that it puts in doubt whether Spielberg actually directed the film and, though people claim it’s only the San Diego bit which is bad, in fact, »

All of the film’s original cast will be returning, including Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander,Janeane Garofalo, Joe Lo Truglio, Ken Marino, Marguerite Moreau, Zak Orth, Amy Poehler, »

Richard Schiff on making 'Manhattan' and reuniting with 'West Wing' director (Exclusive Video)

11 June 2015 3:50 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

For Emmy winner Richard Schiff, the appeal of the recurring role of the mysterious "Mr. Fisher," tasked with finding spies on the Wgn America period drama "Manhattan," was two-fold: “I love popping in, I get great warmth when I do from everyone when I’m there and I get to play and then I go and play somewhere else. I’m really enjoying it.” And, as he reveals in our recent webcam chat (watch below), it reunited him with “West Wing” helmer Thomas Schlamme: “Tommy has directed, I think, three or four of the ones I’ve done. So we've gotten to get into our little thing, so it’s been fun to reconnect on a working level with Tom.” -Break- Watch dozens of video chats with 2015 Emmy contenders For the actor, his character "makes the place radioactive, if you will.

‘The Lost World: Jurassic Park’ is a mixed bag of chills and cringes

9 June 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Lost World: Jurassic Park

Written by David Koepp

Directed by Steven Spielberg

USA, 1997

Few movies lend themselves to franchising as unnaturally as 1993’s blockbuster Jurassic Park.

The story’s theme of man suffering the consequences of using science to flout nature inherently involves the creation of a wondrous world—“Jurassic Park”, a theme park where dinosaurs were brought back from extinction to be gawked at by tourists—and then the destruction of that world. But record setting book sales and box office created the market, and Michael Crichton started to work on the first book of his that was written primarily to adapt into a movie. World creation was one of the most fun things about Jurassic Park (exploring the details of how the park worked and how the dinosaurs were created) and despite the fidelity loss of no longer being able to introduce us to the park and the dangers of genetic engineering, »

Bradley Whitford Remembers ‘West Wing’ v. ‘Sopranos,’ Winning an Emmy

3 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

For a few years in the early 2000s, the best way to win an Emmy was to get a role on “The West Wing.” Original cast member Bradley Whitford had his turn in the second season, when his character grappled with Ptsd after surviving an assassination attempt. More recently, Whitford scored memorable guest turns on Amazon’s “Transparent” (for which he recently won a TV Critics Choice award for guest actor) and Fox’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and joined the cast of Showtime’s frosh comedy “Happyish.”

The West Wing” was an Emmy staple during its run. What was that experience like?

The weird thing about doing a television show like “The West Wing” is you get a crash course (in awards season). It’s not like a Broadway play — you know, “The Book of Mormon,” they go to an awards show once. You’re on a TV show that’s »

Netflix has released the first images from its Wet Hot American Summer revival series, First Day at Camp, and they are everything fans could hope for.
