Really, Ep. 1.01: “Pilot” is funny, but fails at drama

2 September 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Jay Chandrasekhar, Sarah Chalke

Really, Season 1, Episode 1: “Pilot”

Written by Jay Chandrasekhar

Directed by Jay Chandrasekhar

Released August 28, 2014 by Amazon

While the Broken Lizard comedy troupe were behind four movies from 1996 to 2006, recent years have seen the group members branching out individually. One particularly prominent member of the group has been Jay Chandrasekhar, who has directed episodes of shows such as Happy Endings, Chuck, and Community. His newest foray into television is the pilot for Really, a show that takes a look at couples and people in various stages of relationships. Looking for a series greenlight, Amazon and the creators have released the pilot online for voting, and it paints the picture of a show that could either be a success or a failure, depending on whether it chooses to focus on its comedic elements or its dramatic ones.

One of the strong points of the show is the »

Amazon hits some bumps with its third pilot season

29 August 2014 7:40 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Amazon keeps accelerating the pace and output of its "pilot season" process. The original batch of Amazon pilots were presented to the public in April of last year; of those, only "Alpha House" (which got renewed for a second season) and "Betas" (which remains in limbo) got picked up. The second batch of pilots were unveiled less than a year later, and Amazon ordered almost all of them — other than "Rebels," the pro football comedy that no one seemed to like — to series. That was in February, and while none of those new shows has debuted — "Transparent," the best of the bunch, will premiere all of its episodes, Netflix-style, on September 26 — Amazon yesterday unveiled its third pilot season, even as there's already news about casting for the fourth wave of Amazon pilots. At this rate, they may be ordering some shows before a word's even been written, and traveling back »

Trailer Trashin’: Christopher Nolan Launches Into Space with Interstellar

20 August 2014 9:27 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Hello again, dear readers. There are only two weeks left in August, and the summer movie season has started winding down. With that in mind, it’s time to start looking ahead to what’s coming out in the fall and winter. And this week’s Trailer Trashin’ examines what looks like a very promising November release – Christopher Nolan’s upcoming sci-fi film Interstellar.

Premise: When a wormhole – which theoretically can connect widely-separated regions of space – is discovered, explorers and scientists unite to embark on a voyage through it, transcending the limits of human space travel. Among the travelers is Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), a widowed engineer who decides to leave behind his two children to join the voyage with the goal of saving humanity.

My take: It’s strange to think that it’s been almost ten years since Batman Begins (2005) came out, and British filmmaker Christopher Nolan went from »

Big news today: We’re excited to announce Amazon Studios’ third pilot season, beginning August 28th and featuring three half hour comedies The Cosmopolitans, Really and Red Oaks, and two hour-long dramatic thrillers Hand of God and Hysteria.  For one month, it will be up to you to watch, rate and comment – ultimately helping us decide which of them get the greenlight.

“There is something for everyone in this season,” says Roy Price, Director of Amazon Studios.  The glamorous life of modern day expats in Paris. The hijinks of a summer job at a country club in 1980s New Jersey. The visions of a vigilante judge who appears to be channeling God.  The complexities of marriage and friendship among a circle of friends in suburban Chicago.  And the mysteries behind a psycho-physiological illness spreading through a small town in Texas. 

You can help choose which of these stories should get “picked up” to become shows. »

'Hot Tub Time Machine 2' Red Band Trailer: Back To the Hilariously Outrageous Future (Video)

24 July 2014 12:15 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Hot Tub Time Machine" was an unlikely hit when it debuted back in 2010, with the quirky, R-rated comedy hitting the sweet spot between "totally ridiculous" and "totally hilarious." Now, the gang is back for another dip in the titular time-traveling device, only this time they deliberately want to change the past -- but wind up in the future instead.

Finally, the follow-up has a red band trailer, and buddies Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, and Clark Duke are all reprising their roles from the original. (John Cusack is sitting this one out.) The sequel finds Corddry's character, Lou (last seen in the first flick as a gazillionaire thanks to his stealing the idea for Google), in trouble and needing his friends to bail him out. But much like in the original, things don't exactly go as planned. Prepare for more debauchery, oodles of pop culture references, and what looks like a psychedelic sequence featuring neon ladybugs. »
