Waxing Episodic: The glorious 'Project Runway' season one finale

20 March 2015 11:04 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In HitFix's new feature "Waxing Episodic," we reflect on an episode of television we'll never forget. I don't know a single person who believes "Project Runway" is at its best now, but the decade-old reality competition is still chugging along, and that's a remarkable feat for a show that peaked in terms of sheer entertainment value at the end of its first season.  Yes, season one.  Say what you will about the subsequent cycles, which have included some of the most hilarious contestants (Santino Rice, Laura Bennett, the loopy, lovable puppetrix Elisa Jimenez) and undeniable talents (Christian Siriano, Mondo Guerra, Leanne Marshall) in reality history, but "Project Runway" has almost always required trumped-up workroom drama to keep us coming back. Season three succeeded with the Jeffrey Sebelia cheating allegations and season eight offered up an irritating, intriguing teacher's pet in the form of winner Gretchen Jones, but the duller seasons »

Why 'The Look of Silence' and 'The Nightmare' Are More Terrifying Than Most Horror Movies

16 March 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Here's the thing about horror movies -- even the scariest of them have that disconnect from reality. A distressing moment or a jolt can be easily dismissed. It's not real. No, that invincible, machete-wielding mad man isn't actually going to kill you. No, your loved one isn't going to transform into a mutant and try to rip your face off. By their very nature, genre movies put up a wall, with even the most gruesome of them constantly reminding you that it's only a movie. But the real world? The real world is terrifying. And two new documentaries playing at this year's SXSW Film Festival prove that the non-fiction format is capable of getting under your skin in ways that fictional movies can't even dream of. Although they're linked by genre, The...

For Ideas, Improvement and Ratings — Andy Lack and MSNBC Should Turn to… HBO

16 March 2015 8:45 AM, PDT | Mediaite - TV | See recent Mediaite - TV news »

It's been written in this space that CNN President Jeff Zucker is having his MTV Moment. What's an MTV Moment? It's that chapter in a network's cable existence when it realizes it can't survive solely on what originally made it a household name. In MTV's case, music videos weren't going to pay the bill alone, so it began offering its viewers something more, something unique (Real World/Road Rules/Teen Mom/Jersey Shore, etc.). In CNN's case, just delivering the news was no longer the simple formula for success. »

Kendra Wilkinson & Hank Baskett Bring Major Drama to "Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars"

10 March 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

It seems Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett are still working on their rocky relationship. The couple, who briefly split and then got back together on last season's "Kendra on Top," will join the third season of We tv's "Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars."  Wilkinson and Baskett are still struggling to move past tabloid rumors that the football player cheated on her with a transsexual -- and we're getting our first look at all of their drama in a just-released trailer for the show. The pair will be joined on the show by "Jersey Shore" alum Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and his girlfriend, Lauren Pesce. After getting clean and sober, Mike and Lauren rekindled their relationship, but now, she's struggling with the possibility he could relapse. "Making the Band" star Aubrey O'Day and her beau Travis Garland also will be in the house to try to mend the lack of trust in their relationship, »

Chris Hemsworth on 'SNL': 3 Sketches You Have to See

8 March 2015 7:26 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

What makes a great Saturday Night Live host? The formula is a tricky one – a delicate combination of charm and talent and timing – but no host can succeed without one immutable factor: a willingness to laugh at themselves. Avengers: Age of Ultron star and official Sexiest Man Alive (according to both People magazine and probably most actual people) Chris Hemsworth probably doesn't find a lot of occasion to laugh at himself in his regular life, which is why his inaugural outing as host of SNL was such a genuinely funny surprise. »

Interview: Vince Sly talks 'Survivor: Worlds Apart'

7 March 2015 10:30 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Vince Sly does not have a feather in his hair as we talk in the aftermath of his "Survivor: Worlds Apart" elimination.  We're on the phone, so I have to take his word for it.  Vince also notes that he's not a coconut vendor, even if that's how he was introduced on "Survivor." He owns Coconut Caravan and that is, indeed, business that sells coconuts, but that's only a weekend job. He's actually a holistic counselor and owner of four art galleries. Yes, Vince says things like, "I’ll never badmouth anybody in the show because you really are the center of your own microcosmic universe when you’re out there. Every thought, emotion, feeling, sentiment you have feels like it’s going to alter all of existence no matter what you do." But he also says far more pragmatic things like noting that the difference between him and The »

What We Do In The Shadows – The Review

6 March 2015 8:30 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

What We Do In The Shadows is Real World with bite. Quite literally actually. A colorful (well… mainly shades of palish white) group of vampires that range in style and age struggle to live together all under the same roof. Whose turn it is to do the dishes or why someone didn’t put down newspapers on the floor before biting someone’s neck are taxing conversations that showcase just how “normal” vampires really are in this entertaining mockumentary.

“I go for the look ‘dead but delicious.’” Fans of Flight Of The Conchords will love Jemaine Clement’s turn as a stubborn and ultra serious vamp that comes across like a mix of Brad Pitt in Interview With A Vampire with Vlad the Impaler. He’s just one of the highlights in this stellar cast. Everyone involved – even smaller bit parts such as a pair of bumbling police officers – commits »

Curt Schilling Takes Down His Daughter's Cyber Bullies

3 March 2015 12:30 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Curt Schilling proved just how effective standing up to bullies can be. The former Major League Baseball pitcher, 48, took it upon himself to respond to and publicize vulgar, sexually explicit Tweets about his teenage daughter Gabby, who recently committed to the Salve Regina softball team. What started innocently as a congratulatory Tweet from a father to his 17-year-old daughter for her recent college acceptance quickly spiraled into a slew of offensive responses from other Twitter users. Congrats to Gabby Schilling who will pitch for the Salve Regina Seahawks next year!!— Curt Schilling (@gehrig38) February 25, 2015 Schilling posted screenshots of some of »

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. »

The Challenge Honors Ryan Knight on Special After Show (Video)

[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 »
