Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher Honored at Public Memorial Service

8 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Friends, family and fans have gathered together to celebrate the beautiful lives and legacies of Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher with a public memorial service at the Freedom Theater at Forest Lawn Cemetery Hollywood Hills on Saturday. The late mother-daughter duo died just one day apart from each other back in December.

The memorial, which was also live-streamed on DebbieReynolds.com, was organized by Debbie's son and Carrie's brother, Todd. While speaking with Et earlier this week, the producer anticipated that there wouldn't "be a dry eye in the house" -- and he wasn't wrong.

Once all guests were seated in the theater, Todd came out onstage to welcome local members of the Coast Guard in, who helped kick off the memorial. "My mother would have liked that," Todd revealed. "This entire thing I'm calling a show, not a memorial »

Love: how Judd Apatow rewrote the rom-com rulebook

21 March 2017 10:10 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob Leane Mar 22, 2017

Judd Apatow, Lesley Arfin and Paul Rust have subverted expectations with Love, a thoughtful, funny and fearless Netflix series...

Love is one of Netflix’s finest original comedies. It’s certainly right up there with Master Of None and BoJack Horseman in the category of comedies that aren’t afraid to tackle tough topics.

See related  The Last Kingdom series 2 episode 1 review The Last Kingdom series 2: politics, battles and arselings What can we expect from new BBC drama, The Last Kingdom?

The show’s vague title means that Love may have flown under your radar, but it also comes with benefits. Due to the broad scope of its moniker, Love is a show without a gimmick, allowing the writing team to go down any path they wish to develop their characters, mine for laughs and tug on our heartstrings. It succeeds regularly on all three counts. »

Great Job, Internet!: Watch Billy Crystal voice a primitive Buzz Lightyear in this unsettling Toy Story demo

27 February 2017 12:50 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Pixar originally wanted Billy Crystal to voice Buzz Lightyear in its first feature, 1995’s Toy Story (Crystal turned it down and the part went to Tim Allen). The animation studio went so far as to put some When Harry Met Sally dialogue into a piece of custom-made animation, tailored to Crystal’s character freaking out about a wagon-wheel coffee table.

Maybe it’s just because the pompous Buzz is so firmly connected with Allen’s voice 17 years and three films later, but this clip feels very wrong. It’s not befitting of a space ranger to get so worked up about a coffee table.

Great Job, Internet!: How When Harry Met Sally breaks from the rom-com standard

16 February 2017 12:51 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

When Harry Met Sally, written by Nora Ephron and directed by Rob Reiner, is generally acknowledged as one of the greats of the rom-com form. But a close look by filmmaker Michael Tucker of Lessons From The Screenplay shows that the 1989 romantic comedy is actually groundbreaking as well.

According to Tucker, When Harry Met Sally succeeds by turning around standard rom-com standards. For example, in many such movies, the intended couple can’t stand each other at first, then fall in love over the course of the film as they spend more time together (as in It Happened One Night, among others). In Whms, the couple doesn’t get along when they first meet, and then separates for five years. Then they don’t get along again, and leave for five more years. When they finally meet again, instead of falling in love, they become friends. This, Tucker opines ...

'Is it like Girls?' How I found recognition and relief in Brooklyn's TV daughters

The polarizing show, which premieres its final season on Sunday, traced the contours of Jean Hannah Edelstein’s life as a messy post-college millennial

It’s very easy to walk down the street in New York and pass places that you think you’ve been to before, only to remember that you saw them in When Harry Met Sally or Home Alone 2. It’s not even uncommon to walk down the street in the West Village and wave to an old friend, only to realize that he’s not an old friend but rather Chris Noth who played Mr Big in Sex and the City.

Golden Globes: Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds Honored in 2017 Memoriam

8 January 2017 6:39 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The 2017 Golden Globe Awards took a moment to honor two recent celebrities that have passed away this year, Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds. Typically, the ceremony doesn’t include an “In Memoriam,” but losing such dear and iconic talent, the Golden Globes paid tribute to the beloved stars by showing a video of the two stars.

The clip showed a handful of scenes from both of their movies including “Singin’ in the Rain,” “Star Wars,” “When Harry Met Sally…” and many, many more.

“We have not done an ‘In Memoriam’ on the Golden Globes. Those things are handled really well by the Oscars and the Screen Actors Guild,” producer Barry Adelman told People. “But we do realize there were some special circumstances of very recent nature that happened and I think we’ll be acknowledging that.”

Fisher passed away on December 27 after suffering a heart attack. Her mother, Reynolds, died the following day, »

A Tribute to Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds

7 January 2017 9:32 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

2016 claimed a long list of entertainers, but the grim reaper’s most unexpected one-two punch came between the final two holidays with the death of movie icons Carrie Fisher on December 12 and her mother Debbie Reynolds a mere 36 hours later. With the premiere of the documentary about the pair, “Bright Lights” on HBO this weekend, we at the Geeks site thought we should take a look at their considerable contributions to film.

Let’s start with Carrie, who was born in Hollywood, USA on October 21, 1956, the daughter of Debbie and singer/actor Eddie Fisher. She appeared on stage with her mother throughout the late 60’s and early 70’s, even getting her first small screen credit in the 1969 TV movie “Debbie Reynolds and the Sound of Children”. It wasn’t until 1975, when she would make her big screen debut opposite Warren Beatty (quite an arrival) in Hal Ashby’s hit Shampoo. »

Meg Ryan Books First Major TV Role in 30 Years With Epix Comedy

3 January 2017 2:38 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Meg Ryan has become the latest film star to head to the small screen. The “When Harry Met Sally” star has signed on to lead a comedy being eyed by Epix, sources confirm to Variety. Epix declined to comment.

The half-hour series, written by Brad Hall, will be a TV adaptation of his short film “Picture Paris,” taking the same title. “Picture Paris,” like the short that starred Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Hall’s wife), will focus on a suburban empty-nester who heads to Paris with her husband, only to find the trip isn’t quite the dream she anticipated.

Hall will write and direct the project, first reported by Deadline, which is being fast-tracked for a straight-to-series order.

Though she’s appeared as a guest in shows like Lisa Kudrow’s “Web Therapy,” this will be Ryan’s first series regular role in more than 30 years.

On December 23rd, Carrie Fisher boarded an aeroplane from London to Los Angeles and suffered from a heart attack. She had just completed the European tour of her book. Four days later, she passed away at the age of 60.

Fisher was raised into the Hollywood industry. Her mother, Debbie Reynolds, was the star of screen having found fame at the age of 19 in Singin’ in the Rain and her father was pop star Eddie Fisher. She was born on October 21st 1956, just a few years after Reynolds became a star. The two would develop a close bond, captured brilliantly in a photo where Fisher, just six years old, watches her mother perform on stage.

As a child Fisher was known as the “family bookworm”, but an opportunity to star on stage alongside her mother in Irene meant that she never graduated. She moved to London where she enrolled in Central School of Speech and Drama, »
