Newswire: Shout! Factory TV is now streaming on Amazon Prime

28 September 2016 12:40 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Shout! Factory jumped on the bandwidth wagon with the launch of a streaming channel back in February 2015, thereby introducing new generations to—or just reacquainting old ones with—Mystery Science Theater 3000, a plethora of Godzilla flicks, and all the Home Movies they could handle. Sure, Shout! Factory TV was an ad-supported site, which meant sitting through commercials as if you were watching those Dennis The Menace reruns on an actual TV. But that was still a small price to pay, considering it was actually free. Well, for those who are a little more concerned with time than their budgets, Shout! Factory’s just launched a new add-on subscription with Amazon Channels that’ll let you watch The Jerk and The Saint for not much more than a single Redbox rental.

Amazon Prime members can sign up for the Shout! Factory TV video subscription for just $2.99/month ...

Patton Oswalt Relives Bittersweet Emmys Win After the Loss of His Wife on ‘Conan’ — Watch

27 September 2016 10:28 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Patton Oswalt won his first Emmy last week for his special “Talking For Clapping.” During his brief time on stage, the comedian dedicated his trophy to his daughter Alice and his late wife Michelle McNamara, who unexpectedly passed away in April of this year. Oswalt appeared on “Conan” last night, where he once again opened up about his bittersweet win and coping with the loss of his wife.

“I was not ready. I honestly didn’t think I was going to win,” he told Conan O’Brien, adding that it’s always difficult to talk about Michelle because she made him a better person. “She was the reason that my comedy got better to get me to the point where someone would consider me for an Emmy. So it was hard to encapsulate that in a quick speech.”

The evolution of the Batman suit on screen from 1943 to 2017

19 September 2016 6:08 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen looks back at Batman’s past…

As Saturday was Batman Day [you can read two other op-eds here and here] and following on from my look back at the evolution of Spider-Man and Daredevil‘s costumes (and the Batmobile), I thought it would be fun to look back at all the big screen and (some of ) the small screen versions of everyone’s favourite Dark Knight. Starting from the serials in the 1940s all the way through to Zack Snyder’s Batman who brands people.

But what makes the Bat Suit so iconic? Is it the emblem on his chest? Is it the cowl? Is it the colour scheme? Or is it all of the above. Let’s find out.

1943: Lewis Wilson (Batman)

Wilson starred in the 15-chapter serial Batman against Douglas Croft as Robin, which saw the Dynamic Duo as U.S. secret agents taking down Dr. Dako during World War II. The costume is fairly modest, »

‘The Black Dahlia’: Brian De Palma’s Preposterous, Sordid Noir

24 August 2016 11:26 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

I saw The Black Dahlia the day it opened in the fall of 2006. I can safely say it was one of my favorite moviegoing experiences. My husband and I saw it at AMC River East 21, which is one of Chicago’s largest multiplexes. The showing we went to was sold-out. There must have been 400 people there. The movie started, everyone was quiet and seemed excited for the celeb-packed whodunit we were about to see. Slowly, muffled giggles could be heard from different points of the theatre, mostly whenever Aaron Eckhart or Josh Hartnett mumbled “Fire and Ice.” By the middle of the movie, people were openly laughing at Hartnett’s silly, serious narration. Everyone went ballistic when, referring to the resemblance between Hilary Swank and Black Dahlia Elizabeth Short, Scarlett Johansson yells, “She looks like that dead girl!” We went even more ballistic when a woman sitting near me in the audience screamed, »

Claymation point & click adventure Armikrog coming to PlayStation 4 next week

19 August 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In a post on the PlayStation blog, it was announced that Pencil Test Studios’ Kickstarter-funded claymation puzzler Armikrog will be coming to PlayStation 4 later this month.

The game, developed by the creators of Earthworm Jim and Skullmonkeys, centers around Tommynaut, a space explorer who crash-lands on a planet called Spiro 5 and ends up locked inside a fortress called Armikrog. Tommynaut is accompanied by his talking, sometimes flying, dog Beak-Beak, who is color blind, but is able to see special wavelengths that Tommynaut can’t. An announcement trailer can be seen below…

Armikrog, considered to be a spiritual successor to The Neverhood, was created with “old school stop-motion” clay animation, meaning that the developers painstakingly created every frame of capture with puppets and handmade sets. The game also includes voiceover work from Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), Rob Paulsen (Pinky and the Brain), and Michael J. Nelson (Mystery Science Theater 3000), and »

‘Stranger Things’ Tests Limits of Netflix’s Nostalgia Strategy

25 July 2016 4:15 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Nostalgia programming is a tricky thing. Done well, it can revive treasured memories. Done poorly, it can feel like an ill-conceived attempt at pandering, resulting in a rejection of the show and possibly the outlet responsible for its existence.

Netflix didn’t invent nostalgia, but it’s certainly leaning into it as hard as a “global internet TV network” can, in an attempt to attract and keep subscribers who might be swayed by a reanimated chunk of their childhoods.

Nostalgia is, after all, part of what built BuzzFeed into a web traffic powerhouse. If all those self-described “’90s kids” were that hungry for quizzes about which “The Little Mermaid” character they are, and articles consisting of “Saved by the Bell” gifs, why not actual revivals of the shows they loved?

And so the streamer’s new series announcements over the last year have been heavy on shows that might appeal to the segment of the U.S »
