Review: What We Do In The Shadows, An Incredibly Funny, If Slightly Bloody, Romp

12 February 2015 8:01 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

From the opening title card that reads "New Zealand Documentary Film Council," it's pretty clear that What We Do in the Shadows is not going to be your typical vampire movie. Co-directed by Taika Waititi (Eagle Vs. Shark, Boy) and Jemaine Clement (of Flight of the Conchords fame), this story of a group of vampires living together in Wellington, New Zealand is part This Is Spinal Tap and part The Real World. What it definitely is, however, is all funny. Based mostly on improvisations, this mockumentary showcases the talent of some of New Zealand's most hilarious comedians and is sure to have you laughing until you bleed. Set mostly in an old mansion, the vampires take turns talking to the camera in good reality TV-show...

Vampires Get Real in Hilarious Mock Doc 'What We Do in the Shadows'

9 February 2015 10:21 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

It’s hard out there for a vampire. Sunlight’s a (literal) pain, dining on human blood can get messy, and primping for a night out on the town is tricky when you can’t see your own reflection in a mirror. Aside from these supernatural hang-ups,  Taikia Waititi and Jemaine Clement’s rollicking mockumentary “What We Do in the Shadows” (opening February 13) shows us that bloodsuckers have more banal problems, too -- like getting along with roommates. There are some generational differences, to begin with. Viago (Waititi) is 379 years old, and the resident neat freak of the house he shares with 183-year-old Deacon (Jonathan Brugh), the glam but noisy 862-year-old Vladislav (Clement), who’s into kinky sex slavery, and the 8,000-year-old Petyr (Ben Fransham), who’s the Nosferatu of the group. They all reside in Wellington, New Zealand, which perhaps isn’t the first location that would jump to »

How The Real World Deals With Fights Now

28 January 2015 12:25 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Maybe it’s the new people, maybe it’s the new twist (people, or "skeletons," whom the seven strangers have issues with in their actual life come to the house), but as this season continues, The Real World: Skeletons keeps on proving the show's humble beginnings are very much in the past. Remember when simply slapping someone or pushing them hard enough could get a housemate kicked out? Last night showed that now the housemates are forced to watch a play-by-play of their brawls instead, as if they were puppies and the producers were shaking their mess in their faces, saying, Look what you did. The whole episode is below, with the fight starting around 13:45 and the producers’ scolding starting at 29:00, but the gist of the issue is that Florida mean girl Violetta does not like that when the casts’ skeletons start arriving, the bubbly free-spirit Madison is hospitable. »

Jemmye Carroll on Ryan Knight: 'I Will Forever Tell His Stories'

28 January 2015 3:20 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Ryan Knight's final moments on The Challenge were characteristic of his right-here-right-now lifestyle: a sudden departure after a volatile series of events that demanded full attention and yet somehow imparted a sense of business unfinished. Indeed, Knight's own life was unfinished. Two months after his unexpected death on Nov. 27, MTV aired a special Challenge after show early Wednesday that featured a touching memorial to the five years Knight, 28, spent in front of the camera, starting with 2010's The Real World: New Orleans. During the tribute, Knight's castmates alternated between bursts of laughter and choked-back tears, none more so than Jemmye Carroll. »

27 January 2015 11:00 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

[Brightcove "4013351125001" "" "" "auto"] Two months after The Challenge cast member Ryan Knight died, many of his friends and competitors are celebrating his life on an after show following Wednesday's episode. News of Knight's Nov. 27 death was a second devastating blow for this season, Battle of the Exes 2, after castmate Diem Brown lost her third fight against cancer just weeks earlier, on Nov. 14. In keeping with Knight's polarizing personality both on The Challenge and in 2010's The Real World: New Orleans, castmates are simultaneously shaken and amused by the tribute video, previewed exclusively by People. "I'll miss his laugh. It was infectious," veteran Challenge player Wes Bergmann told People. »

'Mortdecai' Review: Johnny Depp Is Very Silly Indeed

22 January 2015 4:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The ad campaign for "Mortdecai," the new Johnny Depp comic caper film, is so befuddling, both opaque and overbearing, that a recent Vulture article spent several hundred words trying to decode what, exactly, the movie was and why the powers that be behind said movie were content with selling the project based on large photos of the very handsome cast (also included: Gwyneth Paltrow, Olivia Munn, Ewan McGregor) sporting cartoonish mustaches. This is a shame, because the movie is an undeniably charming, frothy affair, a zippy, inventive, frequently funny international romp that recalls both the "Pink Panther" and "Austin Powers" franchises, while somehow being considerably stranger than either.

Depp plays the title character, a kind of bone-headed aristocratic art dealer who trades in stolen antiquities. At the beginning of the movie, he's trying to screw over some Chinese gangsters, since he's in deep debt with the British government and his »

Tartikoff Award Winners Share Stories of Big Breaks and TV Obsessions

21 January 2015 7:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Miami — Jonathan Murray grew up in Syracuse scrutinizing TV schedules. Linda Bell Blue got her big break at Kpix-tv in San Francisco. Ted Sarandos collected TV Guide fall preview issues as kid in Phoenix. And Gustavo and Adriana Cisneros were practically raised in the TV company founded in Venezuela in 1951 by their father and grandfather, respectively.

The 2015 Brandon Tartikoff Award winners came from different backgrounds, but one thing they all have in common is a love of television that borders on obsessive, just like the award’s namesake. The Tartikoff trophies were handed out Wednesday night as part of the Natpe confab at the Fontainebleau Hotel.

Jay Leno, another honoree, noted that the spark to pursue a career in comedy came to him when he saw his first-ever comedian, Bernie Allen, at the Fontainebleau’s Boom Boom Room at the age of 12. His mother pulled him out after one joke »

'American Idol' Season 14 Premiere Recap: Slimmed-Down Format Delivers Big Talent

7 January 2015 10:43 AM, PST | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

If there were a Mount Rushmore of reality shows that laid the groundwork for the modern era of the increasingly terrible yet ever-influential television genre, American Idol would certainly be among the forefathers.

Fun sidebar for the comments section: What are the other three? I'm going with The Real World (George Washington - the father), Survivor (Thomas Jefferson - the author of the declaration of snakes and rats) and The Amazing Race (the much-acclaimed Abraham Lincoln), with Idol checking in as the Roosevelt rockstar. »
