Patton Oswalt Pens Emotional Tribute to His Wife on One-Year Anniversary of Her Death

22 April 2017 10:05 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Patton Oswalt marked the one-year anniversary of his wife Michelle McNamara with an emotional tribute yesterday. The actor and comedian wrote a lengthy Facebook post about what life has been like for himself and the couple’s eight-year-old daughter Alice, writing that “it’s awful, but it’s not fatal” and describing how he took off his wedding ring for the first time because “it felt obscene” to continue wearing it.

“I’m one year into this new life — one I never even imagined, and I can imagine some pretty pessimistic and dark contingencies, some stomach-freezing ‘what ifs.’ But not this one. This one had such a flat, un-poetic immediacy. The world gazes at you like a hungry but indifferent reptile when you’re widowed,” writes Oswalt. McNamara, a respected true-crime writer, died in her sleep on April »

We Now Know Where In The World Carmen Sandiego Will Be In 2019

18 April 2017 6:16 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego? A question that today can be answered without looking at a map. Her character was part of an educational computer game franchise where you tried to stop Carmen Sandiego, a super theif, from stealing the worlds treasures all while learning about geography. This iconic series also made it off the computer screen and into books, an animated series that lasted 40 episodes starting in 1994, and a live action game show that starred Lynne Thigpen as "The Chief".

We will once again be able to follow Carmen thanks to Netflix according to The Tracking Board. They have ordered 22, 22-minute episodes that will premiere in 2019. The series will be based off of the computer games and will include an in depth look at the characters past, giving us insight as to why she became a super thief. The show will try to be both entertaining and »

‘Mystery Science Theater 3000’ Creator (Partly) Credits Online Piracy for Show’s Revival

18 April 2017 1:23 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

I didn’t get into”Mystery Science Theater 3000” (“MST3K”) during its original 1988-1999 run. Instead, I discovered it well after it went off the air, thanks to fans who digitized old VHS tapes and posted classic episodes like “Pod People” or “Werewolf” online. Technically illegal, yes. But the show’s various home video collections received very limited releases that quickly went out of print, and it was rarely (if ever) rerun on television. So for many of us, dubiously legal online videos were the only way to see it. I admitted this to series-creator and original host Joel Hodgson »

New episodes from Mystery Science Theater 3000 are now available on Netflix. But since this is a show that first rose to fame in the 1990s and then disappeared at the turn of the century, some audiences who aren’t familiar with the show might need a proper introduction to the series that mocks some of […]

Blu-ray Review – Donnie Darko: Limited Edition (2001)

18 April 2017 1:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Donnie Darko, 2001.

Written and Directed by Richard Kelly.

Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jena Malone, Drew Barrymore, Mary McDonnell, Katharine Ross, Patrick Swayze, and Noah Wyle.

Synopsis:

Donnie Darko has been released on Blu-ray a few times, but this new Limited Edition from Arrow promises to be the ultimate release for fans. The theatrical version and the Director’s Cut are included, along with the previously released bonus features, a new documentary, a 1996 short film by director Richard Kelly, a hardcover book, and some pieces of art printed on cardstock, found inside an envelope marked “Roberta Sparrow.” (Hmmmm…)

Donnie Darko is a perfect example of how a great movie will find its place in the world, even if it experiences a troubled theatrical release. (See The Iron Giant and The Shawshank Redemption for two other such examples.) In the case of Donnie Darko, any movie that used a plane crash »

Another successful Star Wars Celebration is now in the books, and one of the main fixtures this year was Mark Hamill, who was involved in events and panels throughout all four days of the convention. One of the panels he hosted was called "Hamill Himself," where he talked about an array of different topics. An announce event, this year included the actor announcing the renewal of his TV series Pop Culture Quest, his involvement in Netflix's Mystery Science Theater 3000 and a whole lot more. The Star Wars icon also shared another amazing story about the time he saw the first trailer for A New Hope, where it was heckled by one fan in a movie theater.

‘The Keepers’: Netflix’s Next ‘Making a Murderer’ Phenomenon Could Be a Nun’s Cold-Case Killing in New Docuseries

17 April 2017 10:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For those wanting another true crime obsession on your TV, Netflix is obliged to deliver.

The streaming service that brought you “Making a Murder” is now tackling the cold-case murder of a 26-year-old Baltimore nun who was found brutally murdered a couple months after she went missing in November 1969. The case potentially involves sexual abuse, a massive cover-up, and the Catholic Church.

Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return Brings Back the Laughs

16 April 2017 7:31 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

We’ve Got Movie Sign again! It’s been 18years since the last time the mad scientists forced the bots and their human companion to watch cheesy movies. Mystery Science Theater 3000, a low-budget but hilarious cable comedy show from the 80s-90s, has been resurrected on Netflix, with a new cast but the same satiric spirit. Does Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return live up to its predecessor? 

In the not-too-distant past (1988-1999), Mystery Science Theater 3000 was a cult hit, first on Comedy Central and then on the SyFy Network. Created by comedian Joel Hodgson, it ran for over 10 years, despite numerous cast changes, and a netwrok change, along the way. MST3K gained a legion of devoted fans, (myself included) all of whom were sad to see the show go off the air in 1999. Almost two decades later, Hodgson has brought his comedic gem back, with all-new episodes. »

Star Wars Celebration” has seen franchise icons come and go over the weekend, but Mark Hamill stuck around from the first panel to the final day on Sunday, when he hosted an hourlong talk.

The actor, who’s played Luke Skywalker since 1977’s “Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope,” began by describing the look he usually gets when a child meets him for the first time: “‘Oh my god, what happened to this guy? He really let himself go.'”

“You look great,” a voice called out from the audience.

‘Mystery Science Theater 3000’ Rips Into ‘Stranger Things’ In Hilarious Parody — Watch

15 April 2017 3:19 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Promoting its recently launched reboot, Jonah Ray and the crew over at “Mystery Science Theater 3000” have released a cheeky new parody video of “Stranger Things.” (Both series appear on Netflix, so at least we know the streaming giant has a sense of humor about itself.)

Analyzing the opening scene of the first episode, Ray and his robot friends enter “the grayish brownish world of the early ’80s,” only to find they don’t like what they see. On Jim Hopper’s (David Harbour) small beer gut: “I’ve never been so happy to see someone finish getting dressed.” When “Stranger Things” creators the Duffer Brothers names appear, they remark that “the Duffer Mothers must be so proud.”

Cannes 2017: French Theater Operators Rail Against Netflix Films’ Inclusion

15 April 2017 2:52 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Federation of French Cinemas (Fncf) has objected to the inclusion of two Netflix films in the Cannes Official Selection, which was announced Thursday. This marks the first year Netflix has had titles at the festival.

The monster movie “Okja,” from acclaimed South Korean director Bong Joon-Ho, and Noah Baumbach’s “The Meyerowitz Stories,” starring Adam Sandler, will both play in competition before launching on Netflix later this year. That violates a French law, which states that Svod services like Netflix must wait 36 months after a film’s theatrical release to stream a title.

The Truth About Zardoz, Plus Nine Other Things I Learned At Tcmff 2017

15 April 2017 12:49 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Just back from the 2017 TCM Classic Movie Festival with a few thoughts and thoughts about thoughts. I certainly held my reservations about this year’s edition, and though I ultimately ended up tiring early of flitting about from theater to theater like a mouse in a movie maze (it happens to even the most fanatically devoted of us on occasion, or so I’m told), there were, as always, several things I learned by attending Tcmff 2017 as well.

1) TCM Staffers Are Unfailingly Polite And Helpful

Thankfully I wasn’t witness, as I have been in past years, to any pass holders acting like spoiled children because they had to wait in a long queue or, heaven forbid, because they somehow didn’t get in to one of their preferred screenings. Part of what makes the Tcmff experience as pleasant as it often is can be credited to the tireless work »

Why Are We Compelled to Rank Movies in a Series with Each New Release?

15 April 2017 10:27 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

It’s not enough to love films, we now must enumerate that love or hate relative to any similar films.

It has become a familiar ritual — the latest release in a franchise or a noted director’s canon spawns more than one site to run a “The Films of ___________, Ranked” article. We’ve done this dance with the Marvel movies since At Least 2012 when The Avengers came out, and no doubt someone is at this very moment preparing a ranking of the 14 previous films in the McU to accompany the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. Wonder Woman will likely spur on a ranking of all the DC Films, and we saw just in the past week where everyone stood on the existing Fast & Furious movies.

And yes, I got into the act with my own “The Films of Assistant Director Frank Capra III, Ranked.” Hopefully the point was made.
