Which 'Expendables 3' newcomer has the biggest balls? Ronda Rousey, apparently

17 August 2014 4:35 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) When the name of your mercenary team is the Expendables, it’s always a good idea to have some newbie cannon fodder on hand. For "The Expendables 3," writer/producer/star Sylvester Stallone once again recruited fresh meat. In addition to genre icons Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Antonio Banderas and Wesley Snipes, Stallone set his sights on a selection of fresh faces from the worlds of film and professional fighting. Franchise newcomers include "Twilight" hunk and rising action star Kellan Lutz ("The Legend of Hercules"), mixed martial artist and Ufc women’s champion Ronda Rousey, welterweight boxing champion Victor Ortiz, and emerging actor, writer, producer and stuntman Glen Powell ("Ride Along 2"). Throw in Emmy winner Kelsey Grammer ("Frasier," "Boss"), and the mixture became as volatile as a Molotov cocktail. At a recent press conference, the new recruits sounded off on the fun – and the occasional hard knocks – of joining Stallone’s team. »

Revisiting Star Trek Tng: The Most Toys

15 August 2014 12:26 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Even a slow Data episode is better than most, says James of this week's Tng look-back, The Most Toys...

This review contains spoilers.

3.22 The Most Toys

Data, the crew's most disposable member, is ferrying the highly explosive element Hytritium back and forth between the Enterprise and the ship of an eccentric, huckster-ish trader named Kivas Fajo. Shortly after he radios in his final delivery, the traders zap him with a taser and start listing his ingredients. On the way back to the ship, his shuttle blows up! He's probably killed instantly. Or Is He?

No, he isn't. Though the Enterprise crew is shocked by this suspiciously watertight death, the crew has to deliver the Hytritium they were collecting, and so off they head, leaving Fajo behind. Data then wakes up aboard Fajo's ship and finds that he's been added to the trader's collection of rare and curious items. He's basically Pt Barnum in space. »

Producer Christopher Lloyd on making Emmy history with 'Modern Family' and 'Frasier' [Exclusive Video]

11 August 2014 10:31 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Producer Christopher Lloyd is on the verge of making Emmy history... again. He is the co-creator of "Modern Family," a show with a strong chance to win its fifth straight time as Best Comedy Series and tie the all-time record set by "Frasier," of which he was an executive producer for the five years (1994-1998) when it was Emmy champ in the same category. In an exclusive chat with Gold Derby (watch below), Lloyd admitted, "I never dreamed I would be in the position once, let alone twice. It's thrilling. We've been lucky with respect to Emmys on this show. I did not expect we would win in the first year. To even be contemplating five in a row is crazy." -Break- Follow Gold Derby on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, iTunes and YouTube For Best Comedy Series this time around "Modern Family" faces returning shows "The Big Bang Theory," "Louie, »

Producer Christopher Lloyd is on the verge of Emmy history... again. He is the co-creator of "Modern Family," a show with a strong chance to win its fifth straight time as Best Comedy Series and tie the all-time record set by "Frasier."

The competition for Best Comedy Series this time includes returning shows "The Big Bang Theory," "Louie," and "Veep" along with newcomers "Orange is the New Black" and "Silicon Valley." One of the most interesting things about that possibility is that Lloyd was also one of the executive producers for NBC's "Frasier" all five years (1994-1998) when it was Emmy champ in the same category.

2014's supporting characters that deserve their own spin-off

7 August 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

James Clayton argues the case for spending more time with some supporting characters, crying out for a movie of their own...

Moviemakers and film studios produce movies. Said movies are then shipped to theatres around the globe. Paying audiences then turn up to watch these movies and some of them are very popular and take in a lot of money at the box office. Some of them, in fact, take in obscene amounts of money at the box office.

Moviemakers and film studios like it when the pictures they've produced turn out to be box office hits and bring in obscene amounts of money. The next natural step is obvious - milk the cult cashcow for all its worth to give cinemagoers more of what they like and simultaneously yield the inevitable enormous profits.

Sequels - and threequels and prequels and obliquels - are the standard, most obvious means of achieving this. »

The Expendables 3 review: Get us to the chopper!

5 August 2014 1:22 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Patrick Hughes; Screenwriters: Sylvester Stallone, Creighton Rothenberger, Katrin Benedikt; Starring: Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Wesley Snipes, Harrison Ford, Kelsey Grammar, Ronda Rousey, Jason Statham, Mel Gibson, Kellan Lutz, Antonio Banderas, Dolph Lundgren Running time: 126 mins; Certificate: 12A

There's only so much goodwill one can muster for the procession of dishonoured or geriatric movie icons wheeled back into service for this dismal third instalment of Sylvester Stallone's Expendables franchise. While the movie is full of death-defying escapes, all the star power in the world can't overcome two insurmountable obstacles - an abysmally structured script that sorely tests the patience and inexplicably ineffective direction that reduces big name entrances to a whimper and turns every set piece into an alienating and incoherent whirl of bangs and flashes.

The 'geri-action' genre has been widely derided, but the underrated Escape Plan and The Expendables 2 provided plenty of escapist thrills and metatextual laughs. »

Retro bleak: Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence are 'Partners' in groaners

4 August 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

In 2012, CBS premiered a new show about two odd-couple male pals. It was called Partners, and on the surface, it seemed to have everything going for it—a prime slot following How I Met Your Mother, a great pedigree courtesy of two ’90s sitcom wizards (it was created by Max Mutchnick and David Kohan of Will & Grace fame), two charismatic stars (Michael Urie and David Krumholtz). Even so, Partners failed to gain traction. Critics griped that its old-fashioned jokes were tired rather than appealingly retro; just a few weeks into the 2012-2013 TV season, it became one of the first shows to get the ax. »

Film Review: ‘The Expendables 3’

4 August 2014 3:10 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In the moviegoer’s hierarchy of needs, a PG-13 “Expendables” is about as essential as a Joel Schumacher remake of “Tokyo Story.” Or, to put it in terms more appropriate to its target audience: You need “The Expendables 3” like you need a kick in the crotch, and while this running-on-fumes sequel may not be quite as painful a thing to experience, it will waste considerably more of your time. From train-crashing start to back-slapping finish, Lionsgate’s latest and longest showcase for Sylvester Stallone and other aging slabs of B-movie beef — the marquee names this time around include Mel Gibson and Harrison Ford — smacks of desperation and teen-audience pandering, from the literally bloodless action to the introduction of a younger, hotter backup team of fighters (call them the Hip Replacements). It’s an obvious, half-hearted ploy to keep the beleaguered series going, when it would be far wiser to »

Emmys: Quirky Is the New Black

30 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In much the same way that dramas like AMC’s “Breaking Bad” and HBO’s “The Sopranos” made flawed antiheroes easy to root for, a new wave of comedy is putting the oddball front and center. Instead of Jerry Seinfeld playing the straight man to his quirky friends or Michael Bluth watching his family unravel around him, characters like Zooey Deschanel’s Jess on Fox’s “New Girl” and Lena Dunham’s Hannah on HBO’s “Girls” celebrate their eccentricities.

The quirky lead has been a part of TV since “I Love Lucy” took home an Emmy in 1952, according to John Leverence, senior veep of awards at the TV Academy. He cites “The Jack Benny Show,” “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” and more recently, “Cheers” and “Frasier” as good examples of shows with off-kilter personalities at their core.

However, it’s just been in the past decade or so that »

30 July 2014 8:55 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Kelsey Grammer forgives the man who raped and murdered his sister in 1975.

Kelsey Grammer has some powerful words for the man convicted of raping and murdering his 18-year-old sister in 1975.

The actor spoke during a parole meeting Tuesday deciding if his sister's killer would remain behind bars. Present for the hearing via a monitor, Grammer, 59, addressed inmate Freddie Glen, 57, for the first time.

"I accept that you live with remorse," Grammer told Glenn after the latter apologized for the crime and said that he was a changed man. "But I live with tragedy every day."

"I accept your apology. I forgive you," the Frasier star surprisingly added. "However, I cannot give your release my endorsement. To give that a blessing would be a betrayal of my sister's life."

Is 'True Detective' worthy? 'Modern Family,' again? The critics react to 2014's Emmy nods

10 July 2014 4:18 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Melissa Maerz: Jeff,

When the Emmy nominations were announced this morning, I was sitting at my desk, shouting, “Hodor! Hodor! Hodor!” Game of Thrones dominated with 19 nominations! Hot pie for everyone! I’d quibble with the fact that Noah Hawley’s fantastic update of Fargo didn’t get a best drama nod, especially since it was the runner-up with 18 nominations, and The Good Wife was unjustly ignored in that category, coming off its best season ever—it might be the only network drama that I truly loved—but the rest of the list was pretty solid.

Emmy Nominations Yield Celebration — and Second-Guessing (Analysis)

10 July 2014 7:06 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The abundance of quality programming and expanding number of options has created a logjam for the nighttime Emmy Awards, where the celebration over which shows earned nomination will inevitably give way to plenty of second-guessing about those that were overlooked.

Despite the onslaught of competition from sources such as Netflix, HBO – with its multifaceted lineup consisting of series, star-studded movies like “The Normal Heart” and specials – garnered 99 Emmy bids, the most nominations overall for the 14th consecutive year. The network amassed 108 nods in 2013.

Full List Of Emmy Nominations

Still, the burgeoning competition for the bragging rights and promotional benefits associated with Emmy recognition could be seen in the encroachment of new players, as well as the receding presence of the broadcast networks that share televising the awards on a rotating basis.

Netflix, for example, more than doubled its tally from 14 nominations in what amounted to its maiden year – when “House of Cards »
