Boob on the Tube: Top Ten Worst Movie Adaptations of TV Shows

18 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Some of the greatest (or at least heavily favored) American television shows got the big screen treatment when they were selected to have their small screen following turn into a cinematic experience. Unfortunately, for every beloved nostalgic television show that translated successfully in movie theaters (The Brady Bunch MovieStar Trek, Batman, etc.) there are boob tube stinkers that overtake the good crop. Sure, there are middle-of-the-road movie adaptations of television programs that have a mixed bag reception (1997’s Leave It To Beaver, 1987’s Dragnet, 2012’s Dark Shadows, etc.). Nevertheless, it is always the unflattering fare that receive the bulk of the attention (do you register, 1999’s The Wild, Wild West ?).

In Boob on the Tube: Top Ten Worst Movie Adaptations of TV Shows we will take a look at the top ten televised offenders that dared to venture into cinema’s stratosphere only to end up floating down shamefully »

10 sequels that ignored previous films

26 February 2015 8:15 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

In the wake of the Alien 5 news, here are 10 franchise sequels that also ignored at least one previous film.

We all have moments in our lives we'd prefer to forget, and so too do filmmakers. So what do you do when a movie franchise starts to go off the rails? Simple, just forget that the lesser films in the series never happened.

News recently broke that director Neill Blomkamp's taking this approach to the Alien universe. Recent interviews with both he and returning star Sigourney Weaver have revealed that Blomkamp's forthcoming sequel will not necessarily follow the events of Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection, and pick up the story from Aliens instead (although he has since given a brief update on that).

Of course, we'll have to wait and see exactly how all this pans out. But it's by no means the first time in history that a film's »

Say What? Jason Biggs Will Not Return For Season 3 of "Orange is the New Black"

20 February 2015 10:15 AM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

It's official, Jason Biggs will not be returning to "Orange is the New Black" next season! The actor -- who plays Larry Bloom, aka Piper Chapman's (Taylor Schilling) fiance -- has confirmed that he will not be on Season 3 of the hit Netflix show. "They're not focusing on Larry at the moment," he revealed to New York's Daily News. "Larry will not be in season 3. But there's always a possibility he can come back." We have a feeling the "American Pie" star will be back though. The series is based on Piper Kerman's memoir, "Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison," which details Kerman's real-life experiences behind bars. Kerman is married to Larry Smith (who "Oitnb" Larry Bloom's character is based on), so we'd bet that Jason will return ... eventually. What do you think of Biggs' news?

Tara Reid Joins Vine, Immediately Rips Out Her Hair and Fights Off a Fake Shark—Watch Now!

19 February 2015 6:15 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Get ready for lots of 6-second bikini selfies from Tara Reid! The 39-year-old Sharknado star joined Vine Wednesday, and although she is fully clothed in her first two videos, she's every bit as entertaining as she is on her other scantily-clad social media accounts. In her very first Vine, the former American Pie star essentially makes herself into a human Gif, acting out, "When Girls Go to the Hair Salon they be like..." She wails dramatically in the clip as a stylist fusses over her hair. "Ah, you're ripping out my hair," she cries (although if you watch closely, you'll see it's actually Tara playfully removing her own extensions). Tara's second Vine doesn't »

13 February 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The hotly-anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie is finally released in cinemas today (February 13) to coincide with Valentine's Day this weekend, and it's got our minds racing about just one thing....

The most ridiculously silly orgasms in movie history, obviously!

From Jennifer Aniston's otherworldly pleasure to Jason Biggs's doubly embarrassing shortcomings - here are 10 fantastically farcical orgasms on the silver screen below:

1. Jason Biggs in American Pie (1999)

Virginal, apple pie-bonking Jim Levenstein can't believe his luck when his history tutoring with sexy Slovakian exchange student Nadia (Shannon Elizabeth) turns into something more. So excited is Jim, however, that he barely contains himself at her touch, only lasting a few more seconds on second go, until he, er, explodes again.

Sadly Stifler (Seann William Scott) had previously coerced Jim to set up a webcam in his room so they can all watch the frisky teenage pair, but he unwittingly »

Citizen Lily: Weitz’s Character Study Homage to Iconic Lead

Since beginning his directorial career with 1999’s American Pie, Paul Weitz has hovered in an in-between realm of either studio courting mixed or the main stream indie realm, sometimes reaching success, such as with 2002’s About a Boy, but generally languishing in tepid waters with fare like Being Flynn and Admission. He reunites with actress Lily Tomlin, who had a throwaway supporting role in his last feature for Grandma, which superficially contends to be more of the same lackluster output. Fortunately, it becomes quickly apparent that this is definitely Weitz’s strongest work in well over a decade, and gives Tomlin her best material outside of all those delectable Robert Altman titles that are peppered throughout her filmography. A character study that also serves as a familial drama and a topical issue film, its strengths aren’t apparent in every sequence, »

Sundance 2015 Interview: Lily Tomlin, Badass Grandma

4 February 2015 12:00 PM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Grandma is by far the best film to come from writer/director Paul Weitz, the mind that brought us such films as the 90s sex romp, American Pie, and the feel-great Nick Hornby adaptation About a Boy. The triumph of his new film has everything to do with Weitz's very wise decision to draw inspiration from the personality and talent of Lily Tomlin, as its centrepiece. Tomlin has never been one to lend her voice haphazardly and, consequently, the stellar cast showed up to participate in Weitz's self-professed love letter to Tomlin. I spoke with them on the red carpet premiere before speaking with Tomlin herself.Paul Weitz: She's so smart and edgy and I was like, I want to do something where this person is in...

Sundance Film Review: ‘Grandma’

27 January 2015 4:34 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Elle Reid, a tart-tongued septuagenarian author who charges through life like a bull in a china shop, is the sort of character Lily Tomlin might have created decades ago and added to her repertoire alongside Ernestine the indiscreet telephone operator and Edith Ann, the philosophical 5-year-old in her oversized rocking chair. But it’s doubtful the 75-year-old Tomlin could have played Elle then with the same deep reserves of anger and sorrow she brings to “Grandma,” an initially breezy family comedy about mothers, daughters and abortions that slowly sneaks up on you and packs a major wallop. A most impressive detour into low-budget Diy filmmaking for writer-director Paul Weitz (“American Pie,” “About a Boy”), this constantly surprising character piece should spark deserved awards chatter for Tomlin and at least one of her co-stars, as well as solid (if far from “Juno”-sized) indie box office.

It’s only been a couple of weeks, but Gareth Edwards has already found someone new to write the Star Wars stand-alone film he’s directing ready for 2016. About A Boy’s Chris Weitz will work on a new draft of the project.Weitz has been brought in to replace Gary Whitta, who left earlier this month after completing the first draft of the film, which is still being kept under wraps, although we do know Edwards has been busy auditioning actresses for a leading role. Speculation has turned towards the search for a potential younger version of Princess Leia, though there are still only rumours circulating for now.A director, a writer and a producer, Weitz is probably still best known for his attempt to launch a fantasy franchise with The Golden Compass, co-directing About A Boy with his brother Paul, his stint directing Twilight: New Moon and working »

11 stars of classic '90s teen movies: Where are they now?

24 January 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Charlie Lyne's documentary Beyond Clueless harks back to the classic teen movies that shaped the '90s.

Featuring narration from The Craft's Fairuza Balk (and with clips of Robin Tunney, Devon Sawa and co), it made us feel a sudden pang of nostalgia and sent us on our own trip down memory lane to find out where they - and the rest of the '90s teen movie crew - are now.

So, here are 11 stars from some of our favourite '90s teen movies, and what they've gone on to do since:

1. Devon Sawa - Idle Hands (1999)

Dreamy Devon Sawa starred as lazy stoner Anton Tobias - who turns mass murderer after his hand becomes possessed - in the horror comedy Idle Hands.

He went on to play teenage prophet of doom Alex Browning in Final Destination (2000), and appeared as similarly unstable Stan in Eminem's controversial music »
