'Moonwalkers' (2015) Movie Review

19 March 2015 3:16 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

We all know the famous conspiracy theory suggesting Stanley Kubrick helped the government fake the moon landing. For some reason, this myth lives on in the minds of some people, but no one has really capitalized in the movies with exploring this theory. Moonwalkers looks to play with that even more by saying the request never even got to Kubrick but ended up in the hands of a lousy British band manager (Rupert Grint) and a violent CIA agent (Ron Perlman). What follows hopes to be a raucous comedy but ends up being a miserable, unfunny sit you just want to end. Everything is in place for some laughs. You have the fish out of water aspect with Perlman playing Kidman, a straight laced, very violent man in among a group of hippies. You have the 1960s drug culture to exploit for jokes. You have the absurdity of these talentless »

SXSW 2015 Film Review

complete coverage of the SXSW Film Festival 2015

The Overnight

Director/Screenwriter: Patrick Brice

Two families meet at the park and set up a playdate that has unexpected outcomes for all. Cast: Adam Scott, Jason Schwartzman, Taylor Schilling, Judith Godrèche. (film synopsis from sxsw.com)

Overall

It’s hilarious. The boundaries of bromance, marriage, friendship and even penis comedy are pushed to a very funny limit with this film. It’s great to see Schilling doing great work outside of “Orange is the New Black.”

Final Score: 8/10

 

Manglehorn

Director: David Gordon Green, Screenwriter: Paul Logan

Reclusive small town locksmith, A.J. Manglehorn, who has never recovered from his losing his true love embarks on a new tenuous relationship with a local woman he meets at the bank. Cast: Al Pacino, Holly Hunter, Harmony Korine, Chris Messina. (U.S. Premiere)

Community Still Feels, Moves, and Thinks Like the One You Know

17 March 2015 12:25 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The sixth season of Community starts with a bit of good news that isn’t all that good, delivered via public-address speakers by Dean Craig Pelton (Jim Rash): Greendale is now ranked fifth on Colorado’s alphabetical list of colleges. “Rest in peace, Fatboy Slim’s DJ School!” Like so much else on Dan Harmon’s comedy series, it’s an exuberantly silly throwaway line that doubles as a comment on the continued, unlikely existence of Community, a sitcom that’s learned the hard way to see every glass as half-full even when there’s nothing in it.  “Six seasons and a movie,” one of many cherished mantras of the show’s resident disordered pop-culture junkie Abed (Danny Pudi), seems likely to come true now, but with an exhausted sort of integrity that seems more heroic when you think about everything that Community had to contend with. It was always too clever, »

Top Five Tuesday: Dean Pelton’s best costumes on ‘Community’

Community

With the release date of Community’s season six fast approaching, it’s hard not to get excited. The series was cancelled by NBC back in 2014, but like a knight in shining armor (who also happens to own a production company), Yahoo! has taken over the show, which it’s now producing as a web series for devoted audiences.

Although the previous season saw the departure of some notable characters, comedic staples like Danny Pudi, who plays Abed Nadir, and The Soup’s Joel McHale, who plays Jeff Winger, have stuck around, guaranteeing that this sixth season is bound to be a great one, as evidenced by the trailer below.

One character whose brilliance is often overlooked, however, is that of Dean Craig Pelton. Played by Oscar winning screenwriter Jim Rash, Pelton and his costume choices are a highlight of the show. His costumes, which aim to either explore »
