“Doctor Who” Says Goodbye to Matt Smith and the Final Chapter for “Nikita”

24 December 2013 4:24 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Merry Christmas, everybody! With things slowing down for the holidays, I’m reviewing what’s coming up for Christmas week.

News

In his eulogy for Cory Monteith, Ryan Murphy explained his original plan for ending Glee, which EW has printed. Rachel will have become a Broadway star while Finn is happily teaching in Lima. “The very last line of dialogue was to be this: Rachel comes back to Ohio, fulfilled and yet not, and walks into Finn’s glee club. ‘What are you doing here?’ he would ask. ‘I’m home,’ she would reply. Fade out. The end.”

Need a suggestion for holiday binge-watching? ABC Family has put all ten episodes of The Fosters online. You can watch at ABC Family.com or on Hulu. It’s ridiculously compelling and worth the time.

Tina Fey has been busy selling comedy series, and Deadline reports she sold another pilot. »

Peter Bradshaw on comedy

Notionally, one of the most loved of genres, comedy persistently finds that it is somehow ineligible for greatness. Comedies rarely get Oscars. Charlie Chaplin, the great comic, was one of cinema's first international superstars. Keaton, the Marx Brothers and Laurel and Hardy produced sublime gems of film-making, arguably cherished more now than at the time. Billy Wilder's Some Like It Hot is one of the most loved films of all time, with a miraculously light touch and a glorious romantic chemistry between Curtis, Lemmon and Monroe. In Hollywood, the screwball tradition came to be supplanted in public taste by Woody Allen, whose DNA can be traced through the cerebral creations of Charlie Kaufman.

Friedberg and Seltzer Set to Continue Cannibalizing Blockbusters With Inevitable ‘Fast and Furious’ Spoof

24 September 2013 9:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Somehow the news that spoof-teurs Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg are churning out yet another piece of their trademark low-hanging fruit with a Fast and Furious send-up called Superfast had so far eluded me, at least until THR posted a casting notice about the film’s newly-minted leads. Friedberg and Seltzer’s brand of parody doesn’t work for me (and never has), simply because their kind of amalgamation has never struck me as particularly smart or inspired. It’s dartboard filmmaking, scripts seemingly put together by way of a flying stick that determines when, where, and how various recent films get crammed into one “script.” Parodies can work, and work well – see Hot Shots, Spaceballs, Robin Hood: Men in Tights, or MacGruber for proof positive of that – but only if their enjoyment is not determined by how familiar you are with the films they are spoofing. Take a look at the features parodied in Seltzer and »

The 15 Worst Accents in Movies Ever

8 July 2013 7:00 AM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

So many actors have tried, and so many actors have failed. Accents have long proven to be one of the hardest things to hone when it comes to a film role. While Irish seems to be the most challenging of dialects to lock down, there are also other accents — even American — that have yet to be mastered in cinema.

Playing a Serbian posing as a Bosnian in the upcoming "Killing Season," John Travolta is going a rare route. It's debatable whether he can pull it off, but he doesn't have to worry about sounding all sorts of wrong if he's in the company of these actors with the worst movie accents.

15. Gabourey Sidibe, 'Tower Heist' (2011)

Playing a maid with a knack for cracking safes, Sidibe didn't initially plan on her character having a Jamaican accent. But "Tower Heist" director Brett Ratner requested it, and even with the use of a dialect coach, »

Tracey Ullman Goes Into The Woods With Johnny Depp

13 June 2013 6:40 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There’s an awful lot of ‘star-studded casts’ nowadays. If one major celebrity signs on to a film, every other major celebrity seems to try to get in on the action. Case in point: the ever-increasing cast list attached to Disney’s version of Stephen Sondheim’s musical Into The Woods, to be directed by Rob Marshall. Now Tracey Ullman is in talks to join up.

Ullman is apparently in negotiations to join the Into The Woods cast that already includes Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep, Chris Pine, Jake Gyllenhaal and Emily Blunt. Right now, Blunt is signed on to play half of a childless couple who go into the woods to find the witch (Meryl Streep, naturally) who has cursed their family. They meet various forms of fairy tale characters along the way, including the Big Bad Wolf (Depp), the princely boyfriends of Cinderella and Rapunzel (Gyllenhaal and Pine), and, »

TV Review: ‘Mel Brooks: Make a Noise’ Captures Comedy Genius

20 May 2013 7:47 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – I’m a huge Mel Brooks fan, one of those critics who bows at the altar of arguably the two best comedies of all time, “Blazing Saddles” & “Young Frankenstein.” I’ve seen them both a dozen times and can’t wait to watch them again. “The Producers,” “A History of the World,” “High Anxiety,”” “Silent Movie,” “To Be or Not To Be,” “The Twelve Chairs,” his work on “Get Smart” & “Your Show of Shows,” “The 2000 Year Old Man” — the first response that most people should have to “American Masters: Mel Brooks: Make a Noise,” debuting on PBS tonight and releasing on DVD tomorrow, May 21, 2013, is a simple one — What took so long? “American Masters” premiered in 1986 and he should have been one of the first choices.

Television Rating: 4.5/5.0

To be fair, “Make a Noise” doesn’t do much more than confirm what most of us fans »
