How To Tell if You’re a Basic Bitch

31 March 2014 12:11 PM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Lohanthony came to the gay stage with his “Calling All the Basic Bitches” clip (above), and we all stared with our mouths open, like some great truth had been dropped. He’s since been featured by our parent company Logo, chatting with RuPaul, as he continues his climb up the YouTube celebrity power structure.

CollegeHumor decided to try and extend the “Basic Bitch” idea and even brought in Patrick Warburton and his serious monotone for the attempt. It’s not unusual to see straight comedians adopt a gay meme, but boy does this one fall flat…

Can we agree that some things just can’t be mainstreamed?

Mr. Peabody & Sherman: Joel Courtney & Kat McNamara Movie Star Movie Crix Movie Review

22 March 2014 5:18 PM, PDT | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

Mr. Peabody & Sherman has flown through time: it was a cartoon back when your grandparents were kids and now it's landed in 2014 so you can enjoy them, too. But, does the concept still work? Check out KidsPickFlicks' Movie Star Movie Crix Joel Courtney (Super 8) and Katherine McNamara (Contest) have to say:

"Hop inside the Wabac and fasten your seatbelt for a very endearing retelling of a beloved classic cartoon. The film brings back the charming Mr. Peabody, a genius dog who invents time travel to teach his adoptive son, Sherman, about the past. Trying to impress a new friend, Sherman goes back in time for some fun, but makes too much of a mark on history, forcing Mr. Peabody to fix it before the rip in time is irreparable. The movie is quite fast paced with constant jokes for adults and kids alike. With an all-star cast featuring Ty Burrell, »

Boy Meets World History in ‘Mr. Peabody & Sherman’

8 March 2014 4:07 PM, PST | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

Movies of substance are often overlooked by those full of stylish action or vapid rom-coms. High on the endangered species list are remarkable family films that can both entertain and educate. But I’d gladly be proven wrong if audiences went to go see Mr. Peabody & Sherman in theaters.

Those familiar with the classic Rocky & Bullwinkle cartoon will remember this dog and boy duo traveling through world history enlightening us on people of great significance and events that turned the world. They didn’t last too long, most only four or five minutes, but they were a trippy, educational break from watching Bullwinkle try to pull a rabbit out of his hat. Throughout the entire run, Peabody and Sherman stepped into their Wabac (or Wayback) time machine just shy of a 100 times and stood beside figures including Genghis Khan, Helen Keller, Jackie Robinson as well as witnessing the construction of the Great Wall of China. »

Film Review: ‘Mr. Peabody & Sherman’ Hindered by Extra Sidekick

7 March 2014 4:52 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Talking dogs have been around for decades in animated movies and television shows, especially the anthropomorphized kind. From the superhero antics of Underdog to the biting sarcasm from the likes of Brian from “Family Guy” - take your pick and you can find a dog to your liking. I always took a shine to Mr. Peabody, the intelligent and resourceful beagle with a penchant for puns.

..who had appeared in misadventurous time-traveling shorts on “The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show” with his pal Sherman. But that doesn’t mean I was looking forward to DreamWorks Animation’s updated take on these characters for a new 3D computer-animated feature-length film.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

From the trailers, it seemed like the quirky wry comic timing of Jay Ward and Ted Key (respectively, the producer and creator of “Peabody’s Improbable History”) was getting swallowed by big action/adventure sequences and dumbed-down humor. Sure enough, »

Review: 'Mr. Peabody & Sherman' errs by favoring sentiment over laughs

7 March 2014 2:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When I was a kid and Saturday morning was still appointment viewing for me with hours and hours of cartoons on all three networks, I would frequently get up before the sun was even up. I'd get myself a giant bowl of whatever sugary cereal was my poison of choice at the time and plant myself in front of the set so that I had control over whatever was going to be watched well before my sister woke up. There were many weeks where I was up and ready to go before the networks even began their programming, and by default, I would put on the only cartoons playing at that hour, a giant re-run block of "Rocky & Bullwinkle." At the time, I didn't fully appreciate the lunacy of the Jay Ward productions, and it was only as I got older that I began to understand the silly word play »

Mr. Peabody & Sherman – The Review

6 March 2014 11:14 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

There’s one name that almost always gets a smile from nostalgic fans of TV cartoons: Jay Ward. After all, he helped to produce one of the earliest cartoon shows during television’s infancy, “Crusader Rabbit”. But it wasn’t until 1959 that Ward unleashed his masterpiece, “Rocky and His Friends”. Each half hours usually contained two short chapters of an ongoing adventure serial starring Rocky the Flying Squirrel and his dimwitted pal Bullwinkle the moose. And in between these installments were classic features often funnier than the show’s title stars. There was the satiric “Fractured Fairy Tales”, the campy “Dudley Do-Right of the Mounties”, the fables of “Aesop & Son”, and “Peabody’s Improbable History” in which the super-genius talking dog Mr. Peabody and his boy, the excitable seven year-old human named Sherman journeyed back through the years via Mr. P’s time travel invention the Wabac machine. After meeting some historical figure, »

Bad Milo (2013) Review

25 February 2014 7:12 PM, PST | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Reviewed by Kevin Scott, MoreHorror.com

Bad Milo (2013)

Directed by Jacob Vaughan

Written by Benjamin Hayes, Jacob Vaughan

Cast: Ken Marino (Duncan), Gillian Jacobs (Sarah), Mary Kay Place (Duncan’s Mom), Patrick Warburton (Phil), Peter Stormare (Highsmith), Kumail Nanjiani (Bobbi), Stephen Root (Duncan’s Dad)

Here lately, Magnet Releasing carries the same clout with me as Cannon Films, New World Pictures, and Vestron Video. That’s not a slam. It’s a compliment of the highest order. Whenever I saw those monikers before any film, I knew I was in for some kind of genre masterpiece. Whether it be action, horror, or science fiction, it would be a movie that I and a several others (you know who you are) would harbor a clandestine love for until the internet and horror cons came along. That’s when we could go public and find kindred spirits that were states and countries away. »

‘The Emperor’s New Groove’ a humorous defiance of time and space

19 February 2014 5:34 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Emperor’s New Groove

Written by David Reynolds, Mark Dindal, and Chris Williams

Directed by Mark Dindal

USA, 2000

With Disney leading its 1990s renaissance with self-serious tales accounting Greek (Hercules), Native American (Pocahontas), and Chinese (Mulan) empires, it may seem like a slight against the Disney-fication of the South American pre-Inca empire to present a through-and-through comedy. Indeed, The Emperor’s New Groove was fully prepared to be another historical drama firmly planted in the Disney canon under the title of Kingdom of the Sun, but thanks to economic troubles (Read as: really weird circumstances best covered in the documentary The Sweatbox. Look to Josh’s piece and the Mousterpiece Cinema podcast for further reading and listening.) its fate was left to the comedic stylings of Mark Dindal. It’s the sort of destiny that may have lead New Groove to the realm of films like its predecessor in Disney-proper, »
