'The Simpsons'/'Family Guy' crossover is one of the most fascinatingly weird things to ever happen to television

28 September 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

The first thing to remember when you watch the Simpsons/Family Guy crossover is that it is an episode of Family Guy. This is when you groan, because Family Guy is an unoriginal rip-off of The Simpsons that retells tired old gags with an ironic approach. Or maybe you cheer, because you're over The Simpsons: It hasn't even been good in 13 years. Those aren't my opinions. Those are the implicit opinions of the Simpsons/Family Guy crossover–or at least, those explicit self-mocking assertions are how "The Simpsons Guy" portrays every possible critique you could have about the two shows. »

The Skeleton Twins – The Review

25 September 2014 1:25 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

One of the major movie star clichés, right along with “What I really want to do is direct” is the wail of the comedy star, “I want to show that I’m a serious actor”. Through the years many actors first known for generating laughs have attempted to stretch, to show another facet, by taking dramatic roles, often with mixed results. For every Jerry Lewis in The King Of Comedy, there’s an Adam Sandler in Reign Over Me. But sometimes the gamble really pays off with gold…Oscar gold. One of the biggest surprises in Academy history was the Best Actor win by Art Carney (then best known as one of the greatest sidekicks in sitcom history as Ed Norton in “The Honeymooners”) way back in 1974 for Harry And Tonto which may have paved the way for the Best Supporting Actor win by Robin Williams for 1997′s Good Will Hunting. »

American Gigola: Olnek’s Hilarious Sophomore Film Reinvents the Masculine Realm of Hustler Bonding

Few filmmakers are able to successfully create a distinctly unique universe of off-kilter comedy both consistent in tone and unwavering quality, especially if it also happens to be cobbled together from a mixture of limited resources. But you can add director Madeleine Olnek to a shortlist of such names with her sophomore film, The Foxy Merkins, an inspired ode to male-hustler buddy films from the vintage 1970s, transposed to modern day and removed from the arena of the heteronormative. Perhaps scrappy and episodic, which only adds to its infectious charm, this is an unfailingly funny film, proving Olnek to be a refreshing voice to behold in an era of repetitive storytelling and mediocre beats within the realm of independent film.

10 Cartoon Voices That Are Actually Impressions of Other Actors

24 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

In music there are only 12 notes, so it's no wonder so many songs sound the same. But what about someone's voice? The way someone speaks is not bound by any kind of scale or music theory, rather it's the sum a person’s upbringing, their physicality, and their personality. So why do so many cartoon characters sound so eerily familiar? In this list we highlight 10 cartoon characters whose voices (and often their likenesses) are based on other actors. We also mention 5 other cartoon voices that are impressions in the bonus sections of related entries. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, these actors have been thoroughly praised by some of the best.

Elaine Stritch, Broadway Legend and TV Star, Dies

17 July 2014 10:10 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Elaine Stritch - a showbiz survivor who at last became a household name in her 80s when she played Colleen Donaghy, the harridan mother of Alec Baldwin's Jack Donaghy, on TV's 30 Rock - died on Thursday at her home in Birmingham, Michigan, reports The New York Times. She was 89. Only last year, in failing health, she left New York to return to her home state of Michigan to be near relatives, though in the days leading up to her departure from her luxury Carlyle Hotel residence, The Times chronicled her nearly every hiccup - she was such a fixture of the city. »

The Always Outrageous Elaine Stritch Is Dead

17 July 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Mark Kennedy, Associated Press

Jake Coyle, Associated Press

New York (AP) - Elaine Stritch, the brash theater performer whose gravelly, gin-laced voice and impeccable comic timing made her a Broadway legend, has died. She was 89.

Joseph Rosenthal, Stritch's longtime attorney, said the actress died Thursday of natural causes at her home in Birmingham, Michigan.

Although Stritch appeared in movies and on television, garnering three Emmys and finding new fans as Alec Baldwin's unforgiving mother on "30 Rock," she was best known for her stage work, particularly in her candid one-woman memoir, "Elaine Stritch: At Liberty," and in the Stephen Sondheim musical "Company."

A tart-tongued monument to New York show business endurance, Stritch worked well into her late 80s, most recently as Madame Armfeldt in a revival of Sondheim's musical "A Little Night Music." She replaced Angela Lansbury in 2010 to critical acclaim.

10 Most Unwatchable TV to Movie Adaptations

10 June 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

22 Jump Street is in theaters this weekend, and its one of the few TV-to-Movie franchises that has gotten it right. This comes after so many have gotten it really wrong! Adapting a hit television show to the big screen seems like it would be an easy thing. The source material is great, there's an existing audience, it should be money in the bank. But bigger does not mean better. There's more than enough examples of great TV turned into garbage cinema. So much so, there was a fair amount of difficulty and debate narrowing it down to ten, epically awful movies. Criteria had to be established. There must be a method to this madness. Terrible films like The Smurfs, Scooby Doo, Yogi Bear, or The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas still has an appeal to younger audiences who might actually be entertained by it. It does have some value.

The Honeymooers: Classic 39 Episodes and I Love Lucy: Ultimate Season 1 Blu-ray Reviews

18 May 2014 6:23 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

With the release of The Honeymooners: Classic 39 Episodes, and I Love Lucy: Ultimate Season 1, two of the most important and influential sitcoms have now hit Blu-ray.  The former stars Jackie Gleason, Art Carney, Audrey Meadows and Joyce Randolph, the latter stars Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, William Frawley and Vivian Vance, and for those who grew up with these shows on television, these new 1080 masters are night and day in terms of picture quality.  My review of both on Blu-ray follow after the jump.  Both shows have very simple premises that often repeat the same narrative in different iterations.  In The Honeymooners Gleason’s Ralph Kramden is a dreamer who works as a bus driver, with his best friend the mostly stupid but occasionally clever Ed Norton (Carney).  In most of the episodes Kramden gets himself in trouble by thinking he’s smarter than he is.  His failings make »

‘The Flintstones’ Movie in the Works at Warner Bros.

7 May 2014 3:40 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble are being revived with Warner Bros. launching development of an animated “Flintstones” movie based on the iconic TV series.

The studio has hired Chris Henchy, partner with Will Ferrell and Adam McKay at Gary Sanchez Prods., to write a script for the project. Ferrell and McKay are executive producing.

The Flintstones,” created by Hanna-Barbera, imitated and spoofed Jackie Gleason’s “The Honeymooners.” Fred and Wilma Flintstone were touted in the theme song as “the modern Stone Age family.”

The series ran from 1960 to 1966 and was the first animated series ever nominated for a primetime Emmy for comedy series.

Universal made a live-action movie in 1994 with John Goodman, Elizabeth Perkins, Rick Moranis and Rosie O’Donnell. Warner Bros. acquired the rights to “The Flintstones” as part of Time Warner’s acquisition of Turner Broadcasting in 1996.

Warner Bros. has been ramping up its animation activity over the »

10 Characters From The Simpsons Who Were Total Rip-Offs

11 April 2014 11:19 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

“Animation is built on plagiarism. If it weren’t for someone plagiarizing The Honeymooners we wouldn’t have The Flintstones. If someone hadn’t ripped off Sergeant Bilko, there’d be no Top Cat. Huckleberry Hound, Chief Wiggum, Yogi Bear? Hah! Andy Griffith, Edward G. Robinson, Art Carney.” – Roger Meyers, Jr. “The Day The Violence Died,” Season 7 of The Simpsons.

The Simpsons has introduced television audiences to a cast of thousands in its 25 years on television, and not every character is 100% original. Most of the Simpsons’ family is named after creator Matt Groening’s own family, with many more characters named after pets, street names, and more in Groening’s hometown of Portland, Oregon. And then there are the characters that are more than just “named after” someone or something else.

Call it an homage. Call it a parody. Or call it flat-out thievery. Whatever you prefer, The Simpsons have done it many, »
