Monstervision: The Saturday Drive-In

24 November 2014 5:40 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

“This is Joe Bob Briggs reminding you that the Drive-In will Never Die!” 

In 1993, Monstervision on TNT in America, was mostly a program that aired old horror movies and science fiction with the occasional hosting from magicians Penn and Teller. During the early nineties, many cable channels hadn’t yet solidified their formats, and horror hosts were still ways to fill late night television since most channels couldn’t afford original programming. During that time, esteemed and controversial film critic John Bloom (known by his pen name Joe Bob Briggs), finished his tenure at the Movie Channel, which had also began changing its format.

Briggs was unfortunately released from his acclaimed show where he introduced uncut movies for his fans with his color commentary book ending the movies. The prologues and closers often featured comedy with the Briggs character, when he wasn’t interviewing genre favorites like Linnea Quigley. He »

Judd Apatow and Laura Dern touch down for football comedy

5 November 2014 10:31 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hollywood’s response to the general public’s calls for more gender diversity and strong representations of women in film has been to simply remind the world that women can play with the boys too, from female Ghostbusters to female superheroes to now female football fans.

Laura Dern is now producing a comedy about “obsessive female football fans” (yes, they exist) along with Judd Apatow and drafting Pam Brady (Team America: World Police) to write the script, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

 

The as of yet untitled comedy is originally a story idea from Dern, and were she to share co-writing credits it would be a nice consolation prize for fans of her short lived HBO show Enlightened. No word yet on a director or a cast, but Apatow is currently wrapping on Trainwreck, another female fronted comedy written by and starring Amy Schumer.

Here’s hoping it has some »

Laura Dern and Judd Apatow Putting Together a Female Football Comedy for Universal

4 November 2014 1:52 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A female football movie?  Laura Dern and Judd Apatow caught got my attention with that!  It’s being reported that Dern came up with an idea for a comedy about obsessive female football fans and that Apatow is helping her develop it for Universal.  Hamlet 2 and Hot Rod scribe Pam Brady is penning the script, but other than that, we don’t know much more about the project. It wouldn’t come as a surprise if Dern winds up scoring a role in the film, but right now she’s only set to produce alongside Barry Mendel and Apatow on behalf of Apatow Productions.  Hit the jump for more. So there’s not really much more to the Variety article, but it is a fun idea to think about.  Thanks to Apatow’s involvement, my mind immediately goes to Bridesmaids with football.  And really, if this group of football-loving »

The 50 Funniest Women of the Past 50 Years: #40-31

14 October 2014 11:53 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Make people laugh and they won't even realize you're making them think. Over the past 50 years, women have broken through the glass ceiling time after time, shattering stereotypes and thumbing their noses at the old chestnut that "Women aren't funny." Fact: Anybody who says women aren't funny doesn't want them to be funny.  We're looking back on the 50 funniest women of the past 50 years, their contributions to comedy, and their enduring legacies that inspire men and women alike. These are the 50 women who have helped (and are helping) to introduce the next class of hilarious women, which will inevitably include Amy Schumer, Lena Dunham, Mindy Kaling, Tig Notaro, Chelsea Handler, Maria Bamford, Aubrey Plaza, and Kate McKinnon. Keep in mind this list only includes women who are primarily performers in movies, television, and standup comedy. That's why you don't see legends like Nora Ephron, Anne Beatts, and Elaine May here. »

What happened to the stars of Big? Elizabeth Perkins, more then & now

1 October 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Big remains one of our favourite Tom Hanks childhood movies (perhaps losing out to Turner and Hooch, boy did that make us blub, we barely held it together) so we're slightly unnerved by reports that a TV series based on the film has been commissioned.

Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce are now said to have received a script plus penalty commitment from broadcaster Fox for the half-hour comedy series, which will explore what it means to be both an adult and child in today's world.

The 1988 Oscar-nominated movie, written by Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg, sees a boy's simple wish to be big come true as a 13-year-old is transformed into a 30-year-old overnight.

We take a nostalgic look at the cast of the huge hit - including Tom Hanks and John Heard - and what came next below:

Never Mind the Buzzcocks: Rhod Gilbert on becoming the new host

29 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

It feels like we've had guest hosts on Never Mind the Buzzcocks forever, but that's about to change. Yup, we have a new - permanent - host, and it's none other than comedian Rhod Gilbert. Since that's a pretty big thing to take on, we called up Rhod - while he was dealing with an unruly dog on a Welsh mountain (good preparation, in other words) - to find out how he'll cope with difficult guests, what'll be different and why the first single he ever bought is not a good sign of how credible he is...

Hi Rhod. Are you going to be more of a Lamarr or more of an Amstell?

"I don't think I'm either to be honest with you. You can go round in circles analysing these things to death. Both of those guys hosted a lot of shows, they left their mark on it indelibly. »

The Most Embarrassing Statistics About Women In Hollywood

25 September 2014 6:54 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

We've reported that female-fronted films have been a major hit with audiences, from Frozen to The Heat, Maleficent to The Hunger Games. But Geena Davis is reminding us all that despite audiences' clear interest in seeing stories about women, modern cinema is largely ignoring them. As an actress, Geena Davis was a role model to young women with roles in such beloved classics like Thelma & Louise and A League of Their Own, and even the flopped (but fantastic) pirate adventure Cutthroat Island. Since then, Davis has become a role model of a different sort, founding the Geena Davis Institute of Gender In Media. This institute has recently released a study exploring gender bias in 120 films from the 11 countries, including the U.S., India, and the U.K. The results are shocking. We'll break down the most disturbing discoveries below. Some details on the films that were a part of this »

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

9 most influential women in Hollywood: Kathleen Kennedy to Angelina Jolie

6 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A recent Forbes list named Sandra Bullock as the highest-paid actress in Hollywood, but when it comes to shaping the films coming out of the industry pipeline, you have to look behind the camera for the biggest movers and shakers.

Digital Spy takes a look at 9 of Hollywood's most influential women below...

1. Kathleen Kennedy

When George Lucas handed over the keys to his Lucasfilm kingdom he turned to Kathleen Kennedy, who began her Hollywood career as Steven Spielberg's secretary and swiftly rose through the ranks to produce hits such as Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jurassic Park and The Sixth Sense.

Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm signaled an aggressive intent to relaunch Star Wars for a new generation – following on from Episode VII, we'll get to see big-screen sequels and spinoffs, an animated TV show, fresh Star Wars comics, novels and video games in a huge cross-media tapestry weaving together George Lucas's universe. »

10 best baseball movies of all time: League of Their Own, Moneyball

30 August 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A great sports movie should also appeal to those who have no particular interest in sports. Accordingly, some of the best baseball movies could just as easily slot into other genres – they're comedies like The Bad News Bears, historical dramas like Eight Men Out, weepies, biopics, coming-of-age dramas and everything in between.

With this week's release of based-on-a-true-story feel-good drama Million Dollar Arm, Digital Spy takes a look at the ten best baseball movies.

1. Eight Men Out (1988)

John Sayles' 1988 drama tackles Major League Baseball's Black Sox scandal, in which eight underpaid members of the Chicago White Sox (including 'Shoeless' Joe Jackson) conspired with gamblers to intentionally lose the 1919 World Series. Sayles' terrific script perfectly captures the time and place and does a superb job of dramatising several elements of a complex story, with impressive attention to detail.

Very much an ensemble piece, the eclectic cast includes John Cusack (as »

Judy Murray meets man with a tattoo of Andy Murray on his bum

26 August 2014 11:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Judy Murray gets more than she bargained for on this week's A League of Their Own.

The tennis coach sees a new side to her son Andy Murray - tattooed on a man's bottom after losing a bet.

Guest Will was so confident that Andy would lose the 2013 Wimbledon Final that he vowed to get a tattoo if he won.

Judy didn't really know where to look but said the likeliness was "horrendous".

The 54-year-old was recently confirmed as one of the participants in this year's Strictly Come Dancing.

Lori Petty To Return To 'Orange Is The New Black' For Season 3

21 August 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Lori Petty, best known for playing Kit in A League of Their Own, will be returning to Netflix prison series Orange is the New Black for the show’s third season.

Lori Petty Returning To 'Orange'

Petty will reprise her role as an inmate named Lotty on Orange is the New Black next season, according to Entertainment Weekly. She first appeared on Orange in the series’ season two premiere.

Petty’s character Lotty had a memorable scene with Taylor Schilling’s Piper Chapman aboard a plane filled with fellow convicts getting transferred from other prisons in the premiere. In the scene, Piper confesses to Lotty that she thinks she killed someone (Pensatucky) and that she’s likely about to face murder charges. Without much advice to offer, Lotty offers her some Vaseline she has tucked in her ear to help combat the dry atmosphere inside the airplane.

The birth, death and regeneration of the Universal Soldier movies

20 August 2014 4:10 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Universal Soldier began in 1992 before suffering from some tawdry sequels. Then John Hyams revived the franchise in spectacular fashion...

The Universal Soldier films are a strange case of life imitating art. Much like how series protagonist Luc Deveraux is killed in action then resurrected into something post-human, Universal was a pretty standard 90s action film which crashed and burned when it came to sequels, but became something unique and beautiful when it was reanimated for the straight to DVD market.

It’s a hushed secret among genre fans, but Universal Solder 3 and 4 (or possibly 5 and 6, it’s complicated) are some of the most remarkable action sci-fi films of the 21st century so far. Yes, really. I actually watched the series backwards when I first saw them, after being blown away by Universal Solder Day Of Reckoning and deciding to work my way back, and Roland Emmerich’s perfectly acceptable 1992 blockbuster »

"Sing out (Madonna), Louise!"

16 August 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

A happy 56th birthday to the Queen Herself. I was out for drinks with two friends the other night (Hi, Sue & Jordan!) and somehow the conversation turned to Madonna -- I can't remember how it got there -- and the Best Actress for Evita Golden Globe was discussed. 'Her one shot at an Oscar' ...but then of course she wasn't nominated. (1996 was an overstuffed year in Best Actress of course but even if it hadn't been, The Academy probably would have resisted.) But of course it wasn't her only shot at Oscar. They've snubbed her repeatedly in that Best Original Song category though two songs she sang but didn't write won the actual gold man ("Sooner or Later" from Dick Tracy by Stephen Sondheim and "You Must Love Me" from Evita by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber). 

Her original songs from the movies in preference order:

Disney Classics Getting Blu-Ray Release August 12th – Tarzan, Hercules, And More

6 August 2014 2:18 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

A slew of classic Disney movies are hitting for the first time on Blu-Ray, including one double-pack release, and you’re going to want to make sure to pick these up. You haven’t paid attention to some of these titles for a while, and it’s about time you got the chance to catch them on Blu-Ray. The best part is that there’s a great mix of releases hitting. Bedknobs and Broomsticks is all but lost in the cultural consciousness, and it deserves a return. The Academy Award-winning movie from the year I was born is filled with a lot of fun and adventure, and like most Disney films, holds up well for a whole new generation.

The rest of the group covers a great spectrum, including two animated “big” titles, and a 10th Anniversary release. There’s a lot to expose your family to here, so check out all the info below, »
