Lethal Weapon 4's ridiculously fast turnaround time

22 July 2015 12:41 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Warner Bros greenlit Lethal Weapon 4 late in the day - giving director Richard Donner just over six months to make the movie...

The closing chapter of the Lethal Weapon movie saga was a film that, tonally, was a long way away from the movie that started the series.

In the original Lethal Weapon back in 1987, the character of Martin Riggs - as played by Mel Gibson - was on the verge of suicide, working uneasily alongside Danny Glover's Roger Murtaugh. By the end of Lethal Weapon 4, as the song Why Can't We Be Friends played out, it was all happy families. With babies. Riggs had a wife and child, any hints of suicide were long gone, and the film feels a lot more like a comedy than an action thriller.

But then Lethal Weapon 4 was a film with very different expectations on it. The original Lethal Weapon was a surprise hit. »

20 Best Comedy Film Sequels Of All-Time

23 March 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Comedy sequels, generally speaking, tend to suck. The same joke told twice is rarely as funny as the first time, after all – which is why comedic follow-ups tend to fall by the wayside, desperate to tap into those original hi-jinks, but unable to find new and creative ways of doing so. The best comedy sequels, of course, are those that manage to transfer what worked about the first film into a second whilst maintaining a sense of freshness that stops it from feeling like just a “lazy rehash” (cough: The Hangover: Part II – awful).

Truth is, there are very few comedy sequels that are actually better than the movies they were inspired by. That’s not to say there aren’t a few exceptions to that rule, but for the most part it’s one that sticks. It’s also not to say that there aren’t any worthwhile comedy sequels at all; there are, »

Letters: swearing, Rene Russo, one room and 50 Shades

12 March 2015 5:24 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Our latest letters round up! Swearing at Den Of Geek, and why on earth do we talk about 50 Shades Of Grey?

Right then! A few weeks have passed, so it must be time for another Den Of Geek Letters Page (Tm). (Actually, we've not trademarked that). We're back to normal here, so we're unlikely to be found in the comments. That said, if you want to write in - the details are at the bottom of the post - then we'll try and get your missive into our next letters round up.

But enough waffle from us! On with the latest batch of correspondence...

Foul Language & Rene Russo

Shit, prick, asshole, fuck, arsehole, bastardised, shit.

Jarring isn't it. Why are DoG articles now seemingly using words such as these?

I appreciate the last 'shit' instance along with the 'fuck' are references to well-known lines in the movie but is this »

Celebrity Big Brother blog: Who's gone into the house? - As it happened

7 January 2015 12:30 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Finally, something to brighten up our January! Celebrity Big Brother is back tonight, and we can't wait to see who's about to go into the house. Host Emma Willis has promised a stellar lineup, so we're expecting big things.

We're just getting our popcorn ready, but join us from 9pm when the show starts on Channel 5 for all the action from the glamorous Borehamwood bungalow...

23:05Right, that really is it from us - thanks for joining us!

22:58Ooh, a snippet of live footage. Perez is speaking to Katie, which is presumably straining her ability to be nice. Although they are talking about her (and her horrible fat-shaming show) so maybe not...

22:56But for now, that's your lot! Celebrity Big Brother's Bit on the Side is coming up if you want even more house action, but we'll be saying bye on this blog for now. Thanks for joining us, »
