Groundhog Day: The Musical review

27 July 2016 12:37 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

John Moore Jul 27, 2016

Tim Minchin and Matthew Warchus reunite - after their success with Matilda - for Groundhog Day: The Musical. Our review...

You have to admire Tim Minchin’s confidence. Groundhog Day represents his second foray into creating musical theatre from much-loved stories. His previous attempt, also alongside director Matthew Warchus, was a rollicking take on Roald Dahl’s Matilda. Pleasingly, that was the kind of musical that unites adults and children in joy and admiration. It's peppered with at least three stone-cold classic songs - in Naughty, When I Grow Up and Revolting Children - melded to great dollops of pantomime humour, and shot through with the ink black fairy tale tone the original book’s author was so famous for.

Of course, fans of Minchin’s grandiose musical comedy will know his contradictory tendencies for self-deprecation and appearances in alongside a 90-odd piece orchestra. Much of »

Preacher Season 1 Episode 8 Review: Finish the Song

24 July 2016 9:08 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Now we know what Hell feels like.

The Cowboy makes another visit on Preacher Season 1 Episode 8 and we get to relive his own personal Hell along with him over and over and over again.

Those last few minutes certainly felt like Hell, didn't they?

All the momentum of the hour made an abrupt stop as we got to rewatch the entire opening sequence from Preacher Season 1 Episode 2. Then the opening scene of this hour repeated. Then the entire sequence went on a never ending loop. It almost made me want to scream, "What the Hell is going on?"

And now we know why. The Cowboy lives in Hell.

It should have been a dead giveaway in the amazing opening sequence when the Preacher welcomed The Cowboy to the saloon:

This town takes in all kinds, it does. The woman who sells her body to the man who pays for it. »

A Not-So Brief History of Ghostbusters III

15 July 2016 8:40 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

How an Indecisive Cast Led to 20+ Years of Development Hell

Earlier this week, I wrote an open letter to those Ghostbusters fans staunchly opposed to the new film. My goal in doing so was to try and take a toxic conversation and find some middle ground between the two sides. While there are certainly people who truly hate the concept of an all-female Ghostbusters remake for purely sexist reasons, my gut tells me that there are also people who have suffered through decades of Ghostbusters production rumors only to find that their long-awaited sequel was never going to happen.

And partially in good faith — and partially out of curiosity — I figured now might be a good time to remind younger readers of just how messy the whole Ghostbusters III debacle truly got. What follows is not the full transcript of all media references to Ghostbusters III, but an abridged version of they key players and key quotes »

Hong Sang-soo: Modernist Romance

5 July 2016 7:25 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

This article was published in response to Tales of Cinema: The Films of Hong Sang-soo, a complete retrospective at New York's Museum of the Moving Image. On June 23rd, Hong Sang-soo's Golden Leopard winning Right Now, Wrong Then will receive a theatrical release from Grasshopper Film. You can also read Christopher Small and Daniel Kasman's interview with Hong Sang-soo from the Locarno Film Festival here.With her back to the camera, pencil-like frame aping the posture of a nearby lighthouse that guards the border with the sea, Isabelle Huppert’s atypical protagonist in In Another Country (2012), while dozily imagining yet another iteration of the story's romantic dynamics, becomes a typical image by Hong Sang-soo: a character whose momentary break from their own dreamy game of interchangeable personalities we are suddenly, inexplicably privy to. It’s a day-dream moment that can only be reversed by a structural shift in the story; when Anne's lover, »

No Stranger Than Love Review

17 June 2016 4:24 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Early on in No Stranger Than Love, something immediately seems off about the town inhabited by small-town schoolteacher Lucy Sherrington (Alison Brie). In a dynamic reminiscent of There’s Something About Mary, everyone in town seems to be in love with girl-next-door Lucy, and director Nick Wernham’s film — which marks his directorial feature debut — clearly establishes a whimsical, offbeat tone right from the start.

As it turns out, the squeaky-clean Lucy is on the verge of having an affair with fellow teacher (and married man) Clint Coburn (Colin Hanks). However, that rendezvous is cut short when a bottomless hole suddenly appears in Lucy’s living room, trapping Clint deep within the abyss. Making matters worse, a mysterious stranger (Justin Chatwin) arrives in town soon thereafter on a potentially dangerous mission to find Clint. Hilarity ensues, as Lucy must find a way to rescue Clint and keep both their reputations intact. »

Bill Murray finally wins this year's Mark Twain Prize for American Humor

15 June 2016 9:20 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Clown, improviser, movie star, perfect talkshow guest – the Mark Twain prize hasn’t come soon enough for the consummate funnyman, described by Jim Jarmusch as ‘an intergalactic treasure’

In previous years, when the Kennedy Centre has announced the winner of its Mark Twain Prize for American Humor – people like Tina Fey, Will Ferrell or Ellen DeGeneres – many fans have had the same response: why not Bill Murray?

Well, as Phil Connors says in Groundhog Day, “Anything different is good,” and this year is different: Murray has finally been awarded the prize.

Bill Murray to Receive Mark Twain Prize for Humor

13 June 2016 3:29 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Bill Murray will become the 19th recipient of the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor when he receives the award at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. on Oct. 23.

“I’m honored by this award and by its timing,” Murray said in a statement. “I believe Mark Twain has rolled over in his grave so much for so long, that this news won’t disturb his peace.”

Murray has starred in such hits as “Ghostbusters,” “Groundhog Day” and “Caddyshack” over the course of his four-decade career, adding dozens of comedy films to his name.

Kennedy Center president Deborah F. Rutter said in a statement, “since his first performances on ‘Saturday Night Live’ more than three decades ago,” Murray “has charmed us with unforgettable performances from an eclectic cast of characters.”

“His brilliant wit and infectious spirit continue to inspire our laughter across generations both on and off the screen. His unique brand of humor seems to defy time itself — always remaining relevant and relatable to new audiences — much like our award’s namesake,” said Rutter.

In receiving the award, Murray joins past honorees including Steve Martin, Ellen DeGeneres, Will Ferrell and Tina Fey, among others. The award recognizes those who have had an impact on American society in ways similar to the 19th-century novelist, essayist, social commentator and satirist who was born Samuel Clemens.

Crowd-Pleasing Movies for Your Next Family Movie Night

1 June 2016 6:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The Bagel Bites are still frozen in the middle. Your friend with the popcorn popper sent you the patented "I think I'm going to bail on this one" text. Your uncle just got the entire "Hee Haw" series on Blu-ray and is a little too excited about it.

These are the things that can, have, and will go wrong on family movie night. Your best defense against movie night fails? Movies so impossible not to love that some states may have laws against not liking them.

So put those Bagel Bites back in the oven; bust out the microwavable kettle corn; ask your mom if your uncle is really related to anyone -- for it's time to please the whole crowd with your brilliant taste in movies.

'The Princess Bride' (1987)

Ok, the MPAA is pretty solid -- we know "G" movies are good for kids, "R" for adults. »

Impressions: Night Of The Living Dead: Revival’s #4 Issues Feature the Series’ Most Ambitious Storytelling Yet

1 June 2016 12:02 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

There’s something odd, dangerous, and fascinating going on in Evans County, Pennsylvania. The dead have risen with voracious appetites, but that’s not all. No, that’s only the half of it. A higher power is behind this zombified movement, leaving the surviving humans to try and figure out just what the hell is going on… if they can live long enough to come up with the correct answer. Progress is made, blood is spilled, and more intriguing questions are raised (along with the dead) in the #4 issues of Night of the Living Dead: Revival, out today from Double Take.

What began as a sequel of sorts to George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead has morphed into a unique creature that stands sturdily on its own two feet. For many of the ten individual-yet-intertwined series under the Night of the Living Dead: Revival label, »
