Boyfriends and Girlfriends (1987)
The fact that The Boob Tube Dude is doing a list at all proves I'm not above this bulls***. But when it came time to rank my favorite shows of the year, I just couldn't do. Moreover, I realized I didn't Have to do it. No one's putting a gun to my head. No one's paying me to list X number of shows out. And on top of that, this year featured so much great TV that reducing it down to a list seems pointless.
So excited to announce that one of my all-time favorite comedians/humans, Mike Birbiglia (@birbigs), will play Patrick in the TFiOS movie.
— John Green (@realjohngreen) August 28, 2013
Birbiglia is best known for "Sleepwalk With Me," his one-man off-Broadway show turned book, stand-up special, "This American Life" segment and feature film. He's also appeared on "Girls" and in the films "Cedar Rapids" and "Your Sister's Sister." Another Birbiglia stand-up special, "My Girlfriend's Boyfriend," is currently available on Netflix.
"The Fault in Our Stars" is already positioned as one of next year's must-see Ya films.
'Sleepwalk' was based on Birbiglia's stand-up routine, book and radio play of the same title. The new project, entitled "My Girlfriend's Boyfriend," will be based on the comedian's latest stand-up act.
"I’m writing a screen adaptation of [his most recent stand-up act] My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend. Which will have a different name, but that was the jumping-off point. I’m working on that right now, and I’m shooting a concert special of My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend in about a month from now, and that should come out in the fall."
On Friday muscle-bound men of legend face off against a duplicated doofus in drag and a striking new crime doc from Werner Herzog. But if these flicks can’t satisfy your thirst for mythic conflicts, gender-bending gut-busters and terrifyingly true tales, we’ve got you covered with a selection of tantalizing movies available online.
The Fall director Tarsem Singh returns with the tale of Theseus, a warrior of ancient Greece (played by Man of Steel Henry Cavill) chosen by Zeus (Luke Evans) to rise against King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke).
Ancient-era adventure awaits!

The trailer for the succinctly named "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes" dropped today, sending the movie world into an ape-like frenzy. But it's not just the trailer itself that's catching some attention -- some are taking issue with the film's new title. While certain fans are upset with the name, one Hollywood director got the inside scoop on the film's "original working title."
As if that wasn't enough, the "Rock of Ages" director announced some huge casting news for the musical through his Twitter account. We won't give it away yet (okay, maybe we already did), but he's British, you know his name, and he's married to Katy Perry. Any guesses?

Bluebeard's Castle (Powell) / Double Suicide (Shinoda) / Hitler (Syberberg): Or triple feature. The snow globe worlds, matted backgrounds, painting walls, rear projections, break down from Brechtian representations of sets—a transparently two-dimensional backdrop treated as three-dimensional cell, made two-dimensional, falsely illusionistic, again on-screen—into actual illusion, a purely aesthetic, abstract scrim. Not exteriorized illustrations of the characters' thoughts and dreams, their own subjectivity, illusions, the non-spatial spaces re-move the characters from any notion or objectivity or subjectivity: they become part of the design, purely exteriorized themselves, fatally and mock-aestheticized as setpieces, blind to a reality, never seen or reconstructed, of death, murder, suicide,

"Eric Rohmer, a pioneer of the French New Wave which transformed cinema in the 1960s," reports Reuters. "He was 89." As in the barrage of other first reports hitting the wires, the milestones are just touched on now, an outline to be fleshed out over the coming days. And weeks. And years. Born Jean-Marie Maurice Scherer in Nancy on April 4, 1920; first international acclaim with Ma nuit chez Maud (My Night at Maud's), nominated for an Oscar for Best Screenplay in 1969; founding La Gazette du Cinema with Jean-Luc Godard, François Truffaut and Jacques Rivette in 1950; editorship of Cahiers du Cinéma; the last film, Les amours d'Astree et de Celadon (The Romance of Astree and Celadon) in 2007.
"A former novelist and teacher of French and German literature, Mr Rohmer emphasized the spoken and written word in his films at a time when tastes - thanks in no small part to his
That duality worked in almost all of Rohmer's films, which he tended to direct in specific groups. His "Six Moral Tales" is perhaps the most well-regarded, including La Collectionneuse (1967), My Night at Maud's (1969), Claire's Knee (1970) and Love in the Afternoon
In Arthur Penn's intelligently unconventional private eye thriller Night Moves (1975), Gene Hackman's hero – who finds the mystery he faces as unfathomable as his personal relationships – is asked by his wife whether he wants to go to an Eric Rohmer movie. "I don't think so," he says. "I saw a Rohmer film once. It was kind of like watching paint dry."
Behind that exchange lies a jab at Hollywood's mistrust of any film-maker, especially a French one, who neglects plot and action in favour of cerebral exploration, metaphysical conceit and moral nuance. The Dream Factory, after all, had proved through trial and error that cinema is cinema, literature is literature, and the twain shall meet only provided the images rule, not the words.
Of the major American film-makers, perhaps only Joseph Mankiewicz allowed his scripts,
