Speechless Season 1 Review

21 September 2016 2:16 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One episode was provided prior to broadcast.

ABC’s new fall sitcom, Speechless, knows exactly what kind of show it wants to be from the get-go. It’s here to tell the chaotic, yet endearing stories of the Dimeo family, which includes a special needs teenager with cerebral palsy named Jj (Micah Fowler). But more importantly, it wants to be hilarious and somewhat disarming along the way, no matter which character is on screen.

Weirdly enough, this is one of those rare pilots that lends about the same comedic weight to every main character (and a good deal of the supporting cast, as well). Minnie Driver plays the family’s eccentric mother, Maya, who uproots the family for the sixth time in two years in order to find the “right fit” for Jj. We learn soon enough that she’s truly in search of a place that’s good enough »

Doctor Strange Reshoots Brought in Community Creator Dan Harmon

24 August 2016 12:59 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Doctor Strange hits theaters in November, it will mark the end of a very long road to the big screen. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige first mentioned the possibility of a Doctor Strange movie way back in 2009, while Iron Man 2 was in production, with the studio hiring Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer to write the script in 2010, but the project didn't find its footing until four years later, when writer-director Scott Derrickson came aboard. With just months until this Marvel Phase 3 movie arrives, today we have word that another writer was brought aboard for some last-minute rewrites, Community creator Dan Harmon.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Marvel Studios brought on Dan Harmon after the superhero adventure had wrapped production in April. The studio was looking for a writer to create some new scenes "for additional photography," according to the site's source. It isn't known if he will get »

'Captain America: Civil War' Spoiler review: How many superheroes is too many?

6 May 2016 11:10 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of Captain America: Civil War — designed, like my TV episode reviews, to be read after you've seen it, which means there will be many many spoilers — coming up just as soon as you try some of my date loaf... It's an odd thing, Civil War. During the movie this morning, I was enjoying nearly every individual scene and how well the writers and the Russo brothers managed to juggle an absurdly large cast of pre-established characters (plus a couple of new ones in Black Panther and the Tom Holland version of Spider-Man) and give everyone at least one big moment (a literal one for Ant-Man, whose brief turn as Giant-Man was wisely hidden in all the pre-release hype). The movie squeezes in over a dozen Avengers, past, present, and future, has to do a lot of heavy lifting to introduce Black Panther and the nation of Wakanda (and »
