Emmys: Quirky Is the New Black

30 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In much the same way that dramas like AMC’s “Breaking Bad” and HBO’s “The Sopranos” made flawed antiheroes easy to root for, a new wave of comedy is putting the oddball front and center. Instead of Jerry Seinfeld playing the straight man to his quirky friends or Michael Bluth watching his family unravel around him, characters like Zooey Deschanel’s Jess on Fox’s “New Girl” and Lena Dunham’s Hannah on HBO’s “Girls” celebrate their eccentricities.

The quirky lead has been a part of TV since “I Love Lucy” took home an Emmy in 1952, according to John Leverence, senior veep of awards at the TV Academy. He cites “The Jack Benny Show,” “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” and more recently, “Cheers” and “Frasier” as good examples of shows with off-kilter personalities at their core.

However, it’s just been in the past decade or so that »

Movie Review: 'Sex Tape'

29 July 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | GetTheBigPicture.net | See recent Get The Big Picture news »

Sex Tape

Starring: Cameron Diaz, Jason Segel

Directed by Jake Kasdan

Rated R

 

A couple of weeks ago I went to see Tammy.  I didn’t review Tammy because I couldn't find anything to say beyond this: Tammy is an unfocused mess that forgets it’s a comedy, which is sad because it stars someone who can be extremely funny.   Tammy is the sort of comedy that can be more offensive than something like say A Haunted House or Movie 43.  Those movies, as dumb and insulting as they are, at least try to give you something to laugh at.  Tammy rested on its laurels and expected you to laugh just at the concept alone, which is so incredibly frustrating to sit through.  Where am I going with this?  Well Tammy isn’t the most insulting and offensively bad comedy I have seen this year.  That title belongs to, and »

'Lucy' Knocks Out 'Hercules' at the Weekend Box Office

27 July 2014 5:31 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

More people wanted to watch fully-clothed Scarlett Johansson punching mobsters than a mostly-shirtless Dwayne Johnson drop-kicking giant boars.

According to the action sci-fi thriller Lucy, using more than 10% of your brain's full capacity can allow you to bend the laws of physics and stop time. It also allows Scarlett Johansson to thoroughly trounce Dwayne Johnson in the battle for box-office supremacy.

1. Lucy – $44 million. Who could have guessed that a lot of people would want to watch Scarlett Johansson beat the hell out of a bunch of dudes? That's exactly what happened this weekend. While $44 million isn't record setting, director Luc Besson – creator of The Fifth Element and Leon: The Professional – was able to create a blockbuster epic on a relatively modest $40 million budget.

2. Hercules – $29 million. While Dwayne Johnson beating up boars, lions and tattooed zombie people didn't draw as many people to the theaters as ScarJo punching gangsters »

Love According to 21st Century Movies

27 July 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Love is a many-splendored thing. Love lifts us up where we belong. All you need is love!” so says Ewan McGregor in Baz Luhrmann’s classic romantic tragedy, Moulin Rouge!

It’s a thought that has persisted in cinema for well over a century. Love is what motivates characters; it’s a dream they want to realize, a reality they have to face, the content of their musings in their nightly diary entries.

Decades of cinema have seen the nature of other genres completely overturned. More and more, horrors are gearing towards high-concept supernatural thrillers over human killers; comedies are willing to get raunchier, with a whole lot more swearing; action movies are only too eager to show off brutal set-pieces; and comic book movies and sci-fi films have the effects capable of making the unreal real.

But romance? How much has that changed? And how much do we really want it to? »

Hot town, "scummer" in the city — Peter Travers is back once again to count down the worst movies of the month, and July was particularly rife with garbage. Our trusty critic says he could've tossed 25 movies into the Scum Bucket, but he's gracious enough to leave us with only 10.
