Mickey Rooney, Hollywood Legend, Dies At 93

6 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Legendary actor Mickey Rooney died Sunday in Los Angeles, Calif. He was 93.

Mickey Rooney Dies

The Brooklyn-born Rooney, who got his first acting gig at just 17 months old, is best known for the series of Andy Hardy films that came out in the 1930s. Starring alongside Judy Garland, Rooney became the most bankable actor throughout the Depression-era. Among the Andy Hardy films were, Love Finds Andy Hardy, Andy Hardy Gets Spring Fever, Andy Hardy Meets Debutante and Love Laughs at Andy Hardy.

Following his incredible success at such a young age, Rooney struggled to remain a major player in Hollywood as an adult. In the 50s, there was the short-lived TV series, The Mickey Rooney Show that lasted just two years in which he played Mickey Mulligan. He had another TV vehicle in the 60s titled simply Mickey that lasted for 16 episodes.

Rooney went on to get minor parts in films, »

So Long Psych: Series Finale Review

27 March 2014 8:52 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 

Shawn and Gus wrapped up their last crime in Santa Barbara last night in the series finale of Psych. Did the series wrap up with a bang or a whimper? Read our review to find out.

 

It’s appropriately odd that the best series finale to come along in quite a while was not meant to be a series ending episode at all. Last night’s Psych episode “The Breakup” was written to be the eighth season closer, but the word that Psych wouldn’t be renewed came after filming on year eight had wrapped up, so the season finale became the series finale…and it was an excellent one! Longtime Psych fans have little to complain about because Shawn (James Roday) and Gus (Dule Hill) went out in style.

Many fans were no doubt worried that the show’s ending wouldn’t live up to the show’s legacy, »

'Psych' series finale postmortem: James Roday on landing that dream guest star and the ending

27 March 2014 12:39 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Spoiler alert! If you haven’t watched Psych’s series finale, stop reading now. James Roday spoke to EW about the “big get” and that pitch-perfect ending.

The hour revolved around Shawn (Roday) trying to find a way to break the news to best friend Gus (Dulé Hill) that he was leaving him and Santa Barbara to go to San Francisco to be with Juliet (Maggie Lawson). In the end, he did it by recording a message on DVD. If you teared up when it first became clear that Gus was watching a disc, you’re not alone. Another great »

'Psych' series finale: James Roday says 'The Mentalist' will 'keep us in the zeitgeist'

26 March 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

In an upscale chain restaurant on a busy road in Manhattan Beach, Calif., not far from the production offices of the USA Network comedy-drama "Psych," and roughly 1,286 miles from the show's filming location in Vancouver, Canada, star James Roday and series executive producer Steve Franks get together for lunch with Zap2it to discuss not staying too long at the party.

"For a lot of people," quips Franks, "our second episode was too long at the party."

Obviously not for everyone, because the show airs it eighth-season, and series finale on Wednesday, March 26, followed by the "Psych After Show," a one-hour special hosted by Kevin Pereira ("Attack of the Show") and featuring a Q&A with the cast and Franks, in front of a live studio audience in Los Angeles.

For those who need to go do some binge viewing in a hurry, "Psych" features Roday (today sporting a full »

'Psych' series finale: It was 'always about' the Shawn and Gus bromance

24 March 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

When USA's detective series "Psych" closes up shop after eight seasons on Wednesday, Mar. 26, one of TV's most enduring best-friend relationships disappears with it.

In a TV landscape littered with human interactions that are confrontational, violent, sexual or all of the above, stories focusing on true platonic friendship are increasingly rare. And even where they exist, people often feel the need to embellish, as if calling a strong, loyal friendship a "bromance" somehow makes it more interesting.

In "Psych," faux-psychic investigator Shawn Spencer (James Roday) and his faithful partner, pharmaceutical representative Burton "Gus" Guster (Dule Hill), have been friends since boyhood.

"What gave us a lot of the latitude that we had," says Roday, sitting at lunch with Zap2it, in the company of series creator Steve Franks, "was the seed of childhood best friends. It's one of the purest, most enduring relationships that you'll have in your life, when »

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #20. Fabrice Du Welz’s Alleluia

6 March 2014 5:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Alleluia

Director: Fabrice Du Welz

Writers: Fabrice Du Welz

Producer: Clément Miserez, Vincent Tavier, Matthieu Warter

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

Cast: Laurent Lucas, Lola Duenas, Helena Noguerra

While he hasn’t released anything since 2008’s sorely underrated Vinyan, Belgian director Fabrice Du Welz has been busy. His first film since then, the Joey Starr led action thriller Colt 45, wrapped some time ago, and while we thought we’d see this released somewhere in 2013, it looks like 2014 should usher it into theaters. But even more exciting is that Welz is in post-production with Alleluia, which is meant to be the second chapter in his Ardennes trilogy, an opus kicked off by his delectably bizarre debut, 2004’s The Ordeal. This latest sees him reteam with everyone’s favorite star of weirdo French films, Laurent Lucas (who starred in The Ordeal), co-written and produced by Vincent Tavier, the man who wrote »

'Psych' Season 8: Marlowe and Lassiter have their baby in 'Shawn and Gus Truck Things Up'

5 March 2014 7:30 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Once the beginning of "Psych's" final season dropped the bombshell that Det. Lassiter (now Chief Lassiter!) was going to be a father, we were hoping the season would get to the episode where the baby comes -- and it did, with "Shawn and Gus Truck Things Up."

In grand "Psych" tradition, the birth was hilariously absurd, with the gang careening through the streets of Santa Barbara in a food truck en route to the hospital with Henry delivering Marlowe's baby, Gus passed out from the sight and Shawn trying to be helpful but mostly just screaming a lot.

It's also perfect and adorable that Lassiter and Marlowe bought Henry's house and little Lily Nora is going to grow up in Shawn's room. Awww.

Best Lines:

Gus: "Do not go all Sean Penn in 'Mystic River' on me."

Shawn: "Seems like just yesterday."

Gus: "It was yesterday. »

'1967: A Psych Odyssey' GIFs and Chief Vick's return

26 February 2014 7:00 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Star Kirsten Nelson told Zap2it in a pre-show interview that "1967: A Psych Odyssey" is really the show's goodbye episode, with not many dry eyes on set when they filmed Lassiter and Juliet's final scene. We could not agree more -- pass the tissues, please, we're still crying.

But never fear, "Psych"-Os. This is not the last you've seen of Chief Vick or Juliet. "Chief Vick is no longer the chief of the Santa Barbara Police Department," says Nelson. "But we all get a little appearance later. You'll see the chief again. I will be back, in a different form and a different time. But yes, the chief will be back."

With that bit of good news, let's relish in the best lines and GIFs from the episode.

Best Lines:

Henry: "I wasn't on the force in '67. How old do you all think I am?"

Shawn: »

Berlin Film Review: ‘In the Courtyard’

12 February 2014 7:38 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A self-described “expert in despondency” meets his match in “In the Courtyard,” a wry, oh-so-gentle dual character study saved from sleepiness by the unexpected star pairing of Catherine Deneuve and Gustave Kervern. Their tender, good-humored performances — as, respectively, a restless Parisian retiree and aimless caretaker who discover an unlikely kinship in differently transitional life stages — lend this slight tale more gravity than we’ve come to expect from Tunisian-born helmer Pierre Salvadori, who recently struck gold internationally with the Audrey Tautou-starring rom-coms “Priceless” and “Beautiful Lies.” More melancholy but still eminently easygoing, Salvadori’s latest doesn’t have quite the same crossover potential as those films, but the Deneuve brand should ensure widespread arthouse bookings all the same.

Now in her eighth decade, Deneuve’s late-career evolution into France’s most glamorous character actress continues apace. As in Emmanuelle Bercot’s “On My Way” last year, “In the Courtyard »

Berlin 2014: 'In the Courtyard' review

12 February 2014 6:39 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆Catherine Deneuve graces the Berlinale once more with Pierre Salvadori's In the Courtyard (2014), a delicate Parisian tragicomedy about a community in an upmarket Parisian apartment block. Dark and emotionally complex, it still offers moments of eccentric silliness. French TV comedian Gustave Kervern stars as Antoine, a grizzled, lonely drunkard who abruptly walks off stage at his band's gig in the opening scene. In the meantime, he drinks high percentage beer and ogres around talking to himself, but after a trip to a job centre, Antoine somehow finds himself being interviewed for a concierge position.

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #168. Arnold de Parscau’s Ablations

6 February 2014 6:30 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Ablations

Director: Arnold de Parscau

Writer: Benoit Delepine

Producers: Jpg Films, Nexus Factory, No Money Productions

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

Cast: Denis Menochet, Virginie Ledoyen, Philippe Nahon, Yolande Moreau, Julie Delpy, Olivier Gourmet

This is Arnold de Parscau’s feature debut, based on a 2012 short film he directed of the same name. Besides a fantastic cast of Gallic greats, what’s even more exciting is that the screenplay was penned by Benoit Delepine, who has co-directed a number of brilliantly bizarre films with Gustave de Kervern, such as Mammuth and Le Grand Soir. We’re sure this will be equally offbeat as well as a notable title in the coming year. Here’s the trailer.

Gist: The story begins with a man waking up one morning in an open field, half-naked, with no memories of his mishaps of the previous day. As soon as he gets back to his hotel, »

Funny Balloons’ 2014 Slate in Rising Mode (Exclusive)

6 February 2014 3:06 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Berlin – Funny Balloons, the Paris-based sales agent behind two big Berlin arthouse hits – 2012’s “No,” 2013’s “Gloria” – has set its largest sales slate ever with movies by Laurent Cantet, Sebastian Silva, Abel Ferrara, and Gustave de Kervern and Benoit Delepine, and Arnold de Parscau.

A 2008 Palme d’Or winner (“The Class”), Cantet is in post on “Vuelta a Ithaca.” Written with Cuba’s Leonardo Padura, “Ithaca” takes in an old-friends reunion dinner on a Havana rooftop-terrace. Full House, Orange Studio, Haut et Court and Funny Balloons produce; Haut et Court distributes in France.

“A very universal story about friendship and relationships, in the unique context of Cuba,” per Funny Balloon’s founder Peter Danner, “Ithaca” has already struck pre-sales.

Penned by Delepine (“Mammuth”), 25-year-old Arnold de Parscau’s “Ablation,” – “a beautiful, original, moody film noir,” per Danner – boasts an unusually top-notch cast for a debut: Denis Menochet, the French farmer in “Inglourious Basterds, »

Psych is Saying Goodbye Next Month After Eight Years

5 February 2014 5:43 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The popular cable comedy Psych is ending its eight-year run next month. After more than 100 episodes, Shawn and Gus will solve their last case on March 26.

If you’re a psychic looking into the future, you won’t divine any new episodes of Psych beyond next month. That’s because the USA show is coming to an end. While rumors of the show’s demise have been circling like buzzards since last season, the official confirmation of the program’s cancellation came this week.  The final episode will air March 26.

The producers of Psych didn’t know that the series was being cancelled until after they filmed the final episode. However, they were prepared for this eventuality when they were writing the eighth season ending, so the season finale may feel like a suitable series finale. The last show will address key subplots of the show like the longtime on-and-off »

'Psych' - 'S.E.I.Z.E. the Day' GIFs and best lines: Lassiter's a what?!

15 January 2014 7:30 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The latest "Psych" episode, titled "S.E.I.Z.E. the Day," saw Lassiter get some pretty big news -- but don't keep reading if you don't want to be spoiled.

Lassie's gonna be a daddy!

Marlowe dropped quite the bombshell on Carlton Jebediah Lassiter when she told him that she's pregnant. It caused the normally guns-blazing hero to turn into a frightened little man, scared to do anything while chasing bad guys because of how he could be killed in the line of duty and leave them all alone.

But in the end, Lassiter realizes that he just has to do his best and try to make the world safer for his son -- he's assuming it's a boy and we are going to laugh and laugh when it turns out to be a girl.

Meanwhile, Harris Trout (guest star Anthony Michael Hall) continues to terrorize the department as the interim chief of police, »
