Review: 'The Simpsons' Live Episode Stood Out For the Wrong Reasons

16 May 2016 9:19 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

"It only took 27 years to do what they could do in 1954." With that, Lisa Simpson (Yeardley Smith) introduced the first live television broadcast of an animated series. Homer, voiced by Emmy winner Dan Castellaneta, answered questions for three minutes as a wide array of James L. Brooks-created characters paraded across the screen (including Bender holding a sign campaigning for more "Futurama"). On the West Coast, Homer/Castellaneta got through four questions ranging from what he would do if Donald Trump becomes President ("I'm for Bernie Sanders. I love his chicken.") to his favorite thong ("the Brazilian one"). Everyone's favorite yellow father figure got through more on the East Coast feed, including his type of car ("a hybrid" of "old and terrible") and who he's endorsing for President ("Jeb Bush, assuming I'm not too late.") Yet intentional or not, Lisa's line also noted the disconnect between where...

The much-discussed Space Jam 2 now has a director (Justin Lin) to go along with its star (LeBron James), and fans of the original (well, me, anyway) have just one question: How will the sequel's soundtrack ever live up to the original? You know, the Space Jam soundtrack. The one that gave the world "I Believe I Can Fly" and eventually went platinum six times over? That soundtrack. Released on Nov. 12, 1996, below please find a celebration of the singular piece of art that is the Space Jam soundtrack. "Fly Like an Eagle" In 1996, Seal had just won three Grammys for "Kiss From a Rose, »

Ratchet & Clank movie review: wretched and junk

28 April 2016 4:42 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Could have been assembled entirely from clips from other movies — mostly the Star Wars prequels — and would have been better if it had been. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): never hopeful about based-on-videogame movies

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Ah, so there’s my answer, once again.

I was wondering how that standard movie philosophy still applied to me. You know, that standard movie philosophy that is not only the stuff but the actual stuffing of 99 percent of wish-fulfillment genre fantasy movies for decades now. I approached Ratchet & Clank with great anticipation. Can I do anything? Can I be anything I want to be? Am I destined for greatness, to save the world or even the whole galaxy even if I am a foolhardy, thoughtless, unfocused screwup with almost nothing to my name but maybe some undisciplined smarts and outsized aspirations to grandeur? »

Groening created a cultural phenomenon with The Simpsons before turning his hand to the science fiction genre for follow-up Futurama. Despite a dip in quality in recent years The Simpsons has proven enduringly popular, still going strong with over 550 episodes and holding the title of longest running prime time U.S. television show. With erratic scheduling and a lengthy hiatus, Futurama's run proved less stable despite maintaining a loyal fan base and inventive writing up until its end in 2013.   After redefining the American family for a generation of...

‘Simpsons’ Creator Matt Groening In Talks with Netflix For Animated Series

15 January 2016 3:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Matt Groening is looking to jump back into the animation business. The creator of “The Simpsons” is in talks with Netflix to develop an animated series.

Details of the project are being kept under wraps. Netflix is understood to be considering a two-season order of 10 episode apiece. That could be prompted by the long lead time needed for animation production. A larger episode order upfront would allow Netflix to better amortize the production costs. It’s unclear if an outside production entity is involved with the project.

Netflix declined comment. A rep for Groening could not immediately be reached for comment.

Groening has not been too active in TV since “Futurama” wrapped its 15-year run, spread across Fox and Comedy Central, in 2013.

The Simpsons” has become a cultural institution since the characters premiered in 1987 as interstitials on Fox’s “The Tracey Ullman Show.” The series bowed in 1989 and was recently »
