23 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Wasting no time, Netflix, just hours after premiering the third season of BoJack Horseman on their platform yesterday, picked up the critically acclaimed animated comedy for a fourth season. The renewal was announced through BoJack Horseman’s official Twitter account in the following post…

BoJack Horseman has always separated itself from the extensive and ever-growing array of Netflix Original titles by not only being a clever animation chock full of references and background jokes that are usually only noticeable upon multiple viewings but a meditation on happiness and fame. It’s funny, sad and everything in between, and, although its main character is a horse, may be the most human show on TV.

The third season has been greeted with nearly the same level of extremely warm reception and praise across the board as the second season was. »

Chorus of Celebs! Dave Franco Challenges Famous Pals to Sing in Public: Watch

It doesn't get much better than Dave Franco belting out Backstreet Boys in the middle of a New York City Apple Store. To promote his new film Nerve, the 31-year-old posed a perky challenge to friends and fans: daring people to "find their nerve" (using #FindYourNerve on social media) and record themselves singing in public. The actor kicked off the challenge by singing the Backstreet Boys classic "I Want It That Way" - in the middle of an Apple store in Soho.

Review: ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ Amusingly Translates Charms of Beloved Series to The Big Screen

22 July 2016 10:18 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It would take a comedic genius like Joanna Lumley to turn the single word “Gabon” into a three-act play. But it is the visionary Jennifer Saunders who wrote the joke, gave it to her partner in crime and brought the outrageous world of “Absolutely Fabulous” to life. And for that, we should all be in awe. Saunders is the star and creator of “Absolutely Fabulous” — “Ab Fab,” to fans — the movie based on the hit series that ran on BBC One for twenty years, and one of the most successful series-to-movie adaptations of the last decade.

Not that “Absolutely Fabulous” is a cinematic masterpiece, but unlike the big screen versions of “Sex and The City” or the just-released “Looking,” “Absolutely Fabulous” captures the irreverent fun of the series using an appropriately absurd plot device and does not read like a tired excuse to put the characters back in a room together. »

Teensy Reviews: 6 Films We Didn't Review Properly

21 July 2016 6:30 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

These reviews could fit in a tweet. Presented to assuage Nathaniel's guilt from not having properly reviewed them when they arrived, though he sometimes dropped hints of his feelings in other contexts.

In Theaters

Swiss Army Man (Daniels)

Story: A suicidal man (Paul Dano) finds companionship and a new zest for life when he meets a corpse (Daniel Radcliffe)

Review: Wobbly start, Self sabotaging end. But, Oh!, those imaginative mental heights in the middle. 

Grade: Middle Hour: A- / The Rest: C+

Genius (Michael Grandage)

Story: An account of the long working relationship between famed editor Max Perkins (Colin Firth) and one of his literary finds Thomas Wolfe (Jude Law). Let us not mention the women (Nicole Kidman, The Lovely Laura Linney) lest we rage again at the terrible gender politics

Review: The work of an editor is shape & rhythm, so why is a film about a great one lumpy and lead-footed? »

TV Review: ‘BoJack Horseman,’ Season 3

21 July 2016 4:27 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In the seventh episode of the third season of “BoJack Horseman,” the idea is raised to make the for-your-consideration advertisements for BoJack’s film “Secretariat” into reflective surfaces that show the viewer his or her own image — tiny, cheap, plastic mirrors, for magazines and billboards and blimps.

The awards race for BoJack’s film is the spine for most of the third season of the Netflix comedy, after last season dealt with getting the film made. “BoJack Horseman” is an enthusiastically metatextual take on Hollywood, so every onerous detail of the idiotically long awards process is accounted for and summarily mocked, from hiring an awards publicist to choosing Fyc posters.

Which brings us back to the mirrors. In the stack of already rejected pictures of his face, BoJack is transfixed by his reflection, staring back at him with “You Are Secretariat” across the top. The awards race has drained him; the more his team promotes his image »

Why you should be watching the great 'BoJack Horseman'

21 July 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

BoJack Horseman is one of the very best shows on television. It was in its first two seasons (even if it took me a while to realize that in the first), and it still is in its third, which Netflix debuts tomorrow. I burned through all 12 episodes of the new season over a couple of days, loving all of them, yet also feeling at a bit of a loss for what to write in a traditional advance review of the series. BoJack Horseman is gonna BoJack Horseman at this point, and while the show has become more narratively and technically adventurous in some ways — the new season's fourth episode, set at a film festival on the ocean floor, is a delight in both ways — it's still fundamentally the same series it's always been: an improbable blend of cartoon absurdity and profound melancholy that makes it a great comedy and drama at the same time. »

A ‘Community’ movie could be on the cards, says creator Dan Harmon

13 July 2016 12:50 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Dan Harmon, creator of the hit TV sitcom Community, which has just completed six season, has been speaking to the Us website Collider about plans for a film version. The show, which features heavy use of meta-humor and pop culture references, developed a cult following after its initial run in 2009, and forever stood by the mantra “six seasons and a movie”, a line from the second season episode “Paradigms of Human Memory”.

So, six seasons are done. What about that movie?

If I pull out a typewriter right now and write a Community movie just from my own mind, then I have to go through the heartbreak and agony of finding out which of the people are going to show up to make it,” Harmon said. “Whereas, on the other hand, if I wait for everybody to line up and say, ‘We’re all out of work and ready to do a Community movie! »

Los Angeles-based finance and acquisition company Concourse Media has signed a deal with asset management firm Productivity Media Inc (Pmi) to fund between eight and 12 features.

Exclusive: Dave Franco discusses The Room movie The Masterpiece

4 July 2016 2:38 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During an interview with Flickering Myth’s Scott Davis to promote the release of Now You See Me 2, actor Dave Franco offered up some comments on The Masterpiece (formerly titled The Disaster Artist), James Franco’s upcoming retelling of the making of the cult classic The Room.

“We’re still shocked that anyone let us make this movie based on The Room,” states Franco. “I saw a cut of it recently and I’m very hard on myself, but it turned out good. It really did. It’s a tough tone to pull off, it’s comedic but it’s also very tragic, and you want to do the whole story justice, you want to do these characters justice. You don’t want to poke fun at them, you want to play it straight, and my brother who plays Tommy Wiseau could win many, many awards for this.”

BoJack Horseman Season 3 Trailer Has Will Arnett Tackle Life’s Most Pressing Questions

30 June 2016 11:20 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Netflix’s steady stream of original content shows no sign of slowing down in July, with both Stranger Things and BoJack Horseman season 3 set to premiere on the platform over the coming four weeks.

The former of which, an ode to old-school science fiction, will make its bow on July 15 but one week later, the attention will turn to Will Arnett’s starstruck equestrian, and today’s all-new trailer for BoJack Horseman season 3 has our protagonist struggling to strike a balance between fame and private life. Because who said the life of a horse-person celebrity would ever be easy?

What is success? Can two people ever truly connect? Why is Mr. Peanutbutter so annoying? These are the hard-pressing life questions that Arnett’s washed-up actor will look to answer, as his insatiable – and seemingly never-ending – quest for fame intensifies in time for season 3.
