some say the blog will end in fire, some say in ice

GeekRex on great sounding movies of 2014. So glad they included Wild but I don't understand the defense of Interstellar's sound mix given how difficult it sometimes was to hear the dialogue

Gurus of Gold I believe there's an update today but look at where things stand now in the big Oscar categories

Av Club Sarah Jessica Parker may be returning to HBO sitcom glory via Divorce (no, not from Matthew Broderick. On the show!)

In Contention Antonio Sanchez is not happy about his disqualification from Best Original Score for Birdman and why shouldn't he be. Their rules are so arbitratily enforced. Remember when Gustavo Santaolla won his second consecutive Oscar for a film Filled with pre-existing music (Babel) and his score only being a small percentage of it.

The Dissolve Robert Rodriguez to helm a live action remake of Ralph Bakshi's Fire & Ice. I used to love that rotoscoped »

Quantum Leap: revisiting the highs and lows

8 December 2014 8:46 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Guy fondly revisits Scott Bakula-starring time travel series Quantum Leap, the closest we’ll ever come to a live-action Mr Benn

Throughout the 90s, Starfleet’s Captain Archer bounced around time meddling in other people’s lives, aided and abetted by the third-tier villain from Beverly Hills Cop 2 in holographic form. No, this wasn’t a fever dream – this was Quantum Leap: possibly the lowest-key sci-fi show ever televised (and all the better for it).

I’d argue that Quantum Leap was one of the best sci-fi shows that really didn’t need that much in the way of fictionalised science. Indeed, when the plots began to lean on this aspect more heavily, the show seemed to lose sight of what made it great in the first place. The internal logic started to unravel, the plots became increasingly far-fetched, and it even started to become a little (whisper it) naff… »

‘Beverly Hills Cop’ at 30: The Best and Worst of Eddie Murphy

5 December 2014 8:10 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

From the moment he took the stage at 30 Rockefeller Plaza and shouted “Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night!” it was only a matter of time before Hollywood came calling for Eddie Murphy. The comedian’s edgy humor, whip-smart intelligence and go-for-broke energy all but ensured a quick transition to feature films. Beginning his movie career with a series of impressive costarring performances, Murphy made the leap to leading man status in the action-comedy classic “Beverly Hills Cop.” Released on December 5, 1984, it remains his most financially successful live-action film to date. On its 30th anniversary, here’s a look at Eddie Murphy’s ten best roles, plus five that should be forgotten.

Eddie Murphy’s Top 5 Film Roles

4 December 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Thirty years ago today, Beverly Hills Cop hit theatres, introducing the world to Axel Foley and cementing its star,Eddie Murphy, as the king of 1980s comedy.

With his recurring appearances both as a cast member and host on “Saturday Night Live,” Murphy brought to life some of the show’s most recognizable sketch characters, including Mr. Robinson, Buckwheat, and “Stevie Wonder.” His stand-up gigs in the 1980s are also legendary, and the filmed versions of Raw and Delirious are oft quoted and considered the height of stand-up.

For those not familiar with Delirious, it may come as a surprise that the voice of the beloved, scene-stealing Donkey from Shrek also made the most vulgar stand-up special in existence. Murphy’s 1983 special featured 230 instances of the f-word, and it’s only sixty-nine minutes.

Let’s put aside his work on “Saturday Night Live” and stand-up, and look at Murphy’s contribution to film. »

6 Scenes We Love From ‘Beverly Hills Cop’

1 December 2014 11:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

It’s hard to imagine Beverly Hills Cop being a vehicle for anyone but Eddie Murphy, but he was a last minute replacement after Sylvester Stallone dropped out and before him Mickey Rourke bailed, as well (for more trivia see what we learned from the DVD commentary). This week marks the 30th anniversary of the action comedy, which propelled Murphy to certain movie stardom while maintaining the #1 spot at the box office through March of 1985 (it’s still one of the three longest-running box office champs of all time). We all fell in love with Axel Foley, his laugh and his theme song by Harold Faltermeyer (who else taught themselves to play it on a piano despite no other skill with the keys?). Never mind if the two sequels that followed are a mess, the original is still an ’80s movie classic. To celebrate the movie on its birthday (it opened on Wednesday, December »

Netflix saves 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' from pre-cancellation

21 November 2014 3:29 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When NBC aired trailers for all its new shows at last spring's upfront, no new series had me more intrigued than "The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," a comedy from the "30 Rock" team of Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, starring Ellie Kemper from "The Office" as a sheltered woman who escapes from a doomsday cult and tries to start life over in New York City. It wasn't on the fall schedule, nor was it talked about in any early midseason plans, and I had heard from several comedy veterans that NBC had no idea what to do with a show that was so weird and incompatible with whatever it is their comedy brand is now. Well, NBC finally figured out what to do: they sold "Kimmy Schmidt" off to Netflix, which has made a two-year commitment to the series, with the first season debuting in March of 2015. Yup, now Netflix is saving »

Eddie Murphy Is Returning To Dramatic Acting, Get The Specifics

14 November 2014 6:48 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

From Saturday Night Live to Beverly Hills Cop to Nutty Professor II: The Klumps, Eddie Murphy is known for his rubber-faced brand of comedy. But for his next venture, the funnyman is doing drama. Deadline reports Eddie Murphy will headline Cook, a drama about the unexpected bond that forms between the titular cook and the mourning family he's hired to care for through the will of a dead man. Driving Miss Daisy director Bruce Beresford has been brought on board to helm what sounds like a touching film. Remarkably, Cook is based on a real story, the life of its screenwriter Susan McMartin, who has penned episodes of Two and a Half Men as well as Californication. Playlist shared the plot synopsis. Charlotte "Charlie" Brody is just a teen when her life undergoes some serious turbulence. Her mother's lover has died, and inexplicably has hired a cook named Henry Joseph »

1984 Retrospective: The Terminator

14 November 2014 4:45 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

1984. The year that even the Olympics went to Hollywood is easily one of the greatest years in film history. 1984 is also the year that this writer was born…well, only just (my birthday is 31st December). This of course means that this is the year that I turn the big 3-0. Whilst having a mini wallow/mid-life breakdown I realised that many iconic movies came out during this year, meaning that they too turn 30.  The year saw the likes of Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom, Beverly Hills Cop, Splash, The Karate Kid, Police Academy and Footloose welcomed into the world and our hearts. Having grown-up alongside many of these titles I decided to perform an in-depth look into the films that shaped 1984 to see how they are holding up three decades later.

So here it is everyone, the last in our retrospective series. It was a long time »

Oscar Watch: Can Chris Rock Break The Academy’s Comedy Curse?

2 November 2014 2:03 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Yesterday’s fourth annual The Contenders event at the DGA  was a smash hit as 13 studios and distributors, along with their stars and filmmakers, got to show off their awards season slate to an audience heavy with Academy and key Guild voters. And those companies with big Oscar hopes showcased all the usual suspects this year from The Imitation Game to Birdman to Foxcatcher to The Theory Of Everything and on and on with the kinds of films that are usually awards fodder this time of year.

But perhaps the most surprising inclusion was the sudden presence of none other than Chris Rock in the race.  Although Chris wasn’t there in person for the large industry crowd (he was busy in NYC  boosting Saturday Night Live to its best ratings of the season), his movie Top Five was prominently included in Paramount’s reel right alongside their other upcoming »

31 October 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

So we've done some of the heavy lifting by highlighting the best of the best currently available in the genre. Who do you want to see duke it out?

1. "13 Assassins" (2010) R

From 'Big' to 'Marley & Me': We weigh in on TV's remake fad

29 October 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I generally pay as much attention to the broadcast network development season as I do to the baseball draft. Though the shows that actually survive development are much closer to airing chronologically than most baseball draftees are to the majors, the winnowing process is just as brutal in both cases. On average, a given network will hear 3-400 pitches a year, order scripts for 60-70 of them, make 8-12 pilots and put roughly between a half dozen and a dozen of them on the air. So I’ve usually found development not worth worrying about until shows are actually ordered to series and scheduled. That said, it’s been tough to ignore this fall’s development season, where it seems like every day for the past few weeks, my Twitter feed has blown up a few times an afternoon with news of a familiar movie or TV property being adapted »

Jerry Bruckheimer, Paramount TV Developing ‘American Gigolo’ TV Show

29 October 2014 12:01 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Paramount Television is again reaching into the studio archives, announcing that it is partnering with Jerry Bruckheimer on a television adaptation of the 1980 Richard Gere-Lauren Hutton film “American Gigolo.”

Bruckheimer, who was a producer on that crime drama centered around a superficial male escort in Los Angeles, will exec produce the project. Paul Schrader, the film’s director and writer, will serve as exec consultant.

Bruckheimer TV’s Jonathan Littman, KristieAnne Reed and Michael Azzolino will exec produce, co-exec produce and produce, respectively. “American Gigolo” will be a Paramount Television production.

“With its signature noir aesthetic, ‘American Gigolo’ has remained a deeply entertaining, psychological thriller and I’m thrilled to partner with [Paramount's] Brad [Grey] and Amy [Powell] on remaking it into a television series,” said Bruckheimer on behalf of Jerry Bruckheimer Television.

Bruckheimer signed a first-look film deal with Paramount last year, where he is developing film sequels to his »

What are the Most Expensive Movie Trilogies of All Timec

22 October 2014 12:37 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

One of the most talked about pieces of news today surrounds the report that Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy, which will come to a so-called "definitive" end on December 17 with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies has already run up a $745 million price tag when you take into account the production budget on all three movies. Make no mistake, that's a lot of money, and it really calls into question the so-called $281 million budget for the first three Lord of the Rings movies, but that's what's been reported, though I have seen it as high as $310 million. Taking all this into account I decided to start doing a little research so I hit up Box Office Mojo (and Wikipedia when necessary) in an attempt to find out just what exactly are the most expensive movie trilogies of all-time and I have a list of 50 of them directly below. »

Eddie Murphy Becomes The Cook

19 October 2014 9:09 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Eddie Murphy currently has a fourth Beverly Hills Cop and Twins sequel Triplets on the boil. Before he serves up either, however, he's preparing a more serious drama. He's signed on for the title role in Cook, which Bruce Beresford (Driving Miss Daisy) will direct.The story involves a dying man who hires Murphy to rustle up meals for his girlfriend and daughter after he's left this mortal coil. It was initially earmarked for Samuel L. Jackson until scheduling conflicts caused him to decline. Susan McMartin (Californication) wrote the script, and Mark Canton (300, Immortals, Escape Plan) is among the producers."It's a great screenplay," Canton told Empire when we had cause to speak to him recently. "It's a small story - a true story - of a family and a guy who comes into their lives. You have to come up with either really great big franchise driven movies or little character driven movies. »

'NCIS: New Orleans' is staging a 'Quantum Leap' reunion

NCIS: New Orleans” is staging a “Quantum Leap” reunion Scott Bakula and Dean Stockwell will be reunited when Stockwell plays a retired cop who’s confronted about a murder from 40 years ago. Neil Patrick Harris: I don’t want to host an Oscars that is "super derivative of other shows that I’ve done" "I don’t want it to seem like I’m doing the same award hosting gig that I did on the Tonys, just now on a different stage,” he says. "And I think they don’t want that, either … It’s the biggest sandbox in the world. If you say, 'I think that I should do a thing with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.' Because it’s the Oscars, do they say yes? Because they would say no for the Tonys … I want to also just make sure that it’s a classy event. »
