Ghostbusters: Why is everyone insane?

19 May 2016 5:33 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When the news of the Ghostbusters reboot broke, I worked at a company that has a notoriously terrifying comments section; in the entire history of my time there only one article required that comments be shut down: the announcement of an all female Ghostbusters. Contained within that comment section were some of the most violent assassinations of the female gender that I’ve ever seen. No one could have predicted the firestorm that would haunt this film. On the surface, Ghostbusters is merely a new addition to an old franchise that general audiences may -- or may not -- be familiar with. So how has this little comedy ignited an international firestorm? I was one of those not much interested in a reboot, remake, or sequel in the franchise. Dan Aykroyd had been teasing the prospect for so many years that eventually it felt best to just leave well enough »

The 10 Best Things About the ‘Jane the Virgin’ Finale

17 May 2016 4:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

How good was the second-season finale of the CW’s “Jane the Virgin”? Well, it managed to be perfect even though there were no scenes from “Tiago,” the Rogelio telenovela in which he travels through history bestowing his personal awesomeness on crucial moments in history.

Without further ado, here are 10 terrific moments from the “Jane the Virgin’s” exciting 44th installment.

Jane and Rogelio riding the bus called back to the show’s premiere, of course, but instead of seeing her father on a bus poster, now Jane and Rogelio had to endure a talking Esteban poster (and Esteban is another telenovela star who is likely to eventually find out he made Xiomara pregnant, yikes). Not only was it a chance for Rogelio and Jane to share yet another tender father-daughter moment, it was true to the show’s working-class roots for Jane to show up to her wedding on a city bus, »

Stars React to ‘Castle,’ ‘Nashville’ and More TV Cancellations After a Bloodbath

13 May 2016 11:24 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Thursday’s news cycle was inundated with TV show cancellations, with networks bidding adieu to the likes of “Nashville,” “Castle,” “Grandfathered” and “The Grinder,” among others.

The news prompted social media reactions from many of the series’ stars, who weighed in with a mixture of sadness and snark.

“Nashville,” ABC’s country music-themed drama, was cancelled after four seasons. Series star Connie Britton posted an effusive message on Instagram, writing, “To the amazing friends and family who are Nashville, to the cast and crew, and most of all to the fans…I’d just like to say it’s been my honor to be a part of this world, to live in it and breathe it in and try to replicate it. Sometimes we were more successful than others. But the place of Nashville in my heart is deep and permanent. I am grateful for the hard work and faith »

5 TV Shows to Watch If You Miss College Life

12 May 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Ah, sweet college -- the perfect fusion of freedom and dependence, childhood and adulthood, midterms and hangovers. For many students, it takes escaping high school and heading off to college to find out who they really are and who they really want to be. It's okay to miss it sometimes, or even most of the time.

Fortunately, television will always be here to help you relive your glory days. These college-set series cover the good, the bad, and the hilariously pathetic parts of higher learning. For every randomly selected roommate who became an instant best friend, there was a mind-numbingly boring professor with a two-hour lecture on the origin of language. For every idyllic fall day on campus, there was a boxed macaroni-and-cheese mishap. And for every deep, personal revelation, there was a moment of being too hungover to get out of bed, let along get to class.

'Bridesmaids': 10 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About the Hit Comedy

12 May 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

You can pinpoint the moment almost precisely when "Bridesmaids" changed comedy.

Upon the movie's release five years ago this week (on May 13, 2011), it was that one notorious food-poisoning scene -- you know the one -- that proved that an all-female ensemble comedy could be just as raunchy and hilarious and heartfelt as any of producer Judd Apatow's bro-centric comedies. The result turned Melissa McCarthy into a breakout star, gave career boosts to costar/co-writer/co-producer Kristen Wiig and director Paul Feig, and launched a wave of hit R-rated comedies starring women.

Still, as many times as you've watched the misadventures of Wiig's moody maid of honor, there's plenty you may not know about how the story came together, who almost starred in it, and which scenes were left out.

1. "Bridesmaids" came about because of Wiig's cameo as a hostile TV producer in Apatow's "Knocked Up." The director urged her »

Ghostbusters Reboot Director Responds to Online Bullies

9 May 2016 2:49 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since Sony announced their all-female reboot of Ghostbusters, there has been plenty of hate spewed from all corners of the Internet, targeting the cast and director Paul Feig. The filmmaker has spoken out against these bullies through social media on many occasions, but last week he was quoted in a New York Daily News article that made it seem he was bashing geek culture as a whole. Now he has offered some clarification through social media. As it turns out, those quotes were from an interview conducted well over a year ago.

Paul Feig released a lengthy statement through his Twitter page today, where he revealed that the interview took place last February, just weeks after he announced the Ghostbusters cast through his Twitter page. Shortly after the cast was announced, the actresses were being bombarded with hateful tweets and comments all over the Internet. Here's what the filmmaker had to say, »

8 April 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

It's a rather happy coincidence that Jay BaruchelSeth Rogen, and James Franco all share April as their birthday month.

The three funny men seem to be pretty good friends in real life as far as we can tell, and it totally shows in their work. Collaborating on countless films, TV shows and side projects, and making us laugh harder and harder each time, these three dudes have taken their friendship to the big screen and it's made for epic results.

In celebration of their birthdays, Jay who turns 34 on April 9th, Seth who turns 34 on April 15th, and James who turns 38 on April 19th, we're looking back at all of their hilarious collaborations, in chronological order. Let's go!

"Freaks and Geeks" (1999-2000)

The extremely short-lived television series created by Paul Feig and produced by Judd Apatow, jump-started both Seth Rogen and James Franco's careers. In our opinion, it's »

Conan O'Brien, Marc Maron, And Seth Meyers Pay Tribute To Garry Shandling

25 March 2016 6:54 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Yesterday afternoon, the shocking and sad news arrived that Garry Shandling had passed away at the age of 66. A stand-up comedy legend and the brain behind two of the most influential shows ever with "It's Garry Shandling's Show" and "The Larry Sanders Show," almost everyone who tells jokes for a living owes a debt to Shandling. Last night, both Conan O'Brien and Seth Meyers took a moment during their opening monologues to pay tribute to Shandling, with O'Brien in particular sharing how the late comedian lent his support to him during the absurd "The Tonight Show" fiasco. Meanwhile, Marc Maron also shared remembrance of Shandling, along with his interview with him from 2011. Check it all out below, along with his podcast appearance on "You Made It Weird," a classic scene from "Freaks and Geeks" (a show conceived by two huge Shandling fans in Judd Apatow — who worked on 'Larry Sanders »

Goodbye to Garry Shandling, who gave us the greatest TV show about a TV show

24 March 2016 2:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Of the many many TV shows over the years that were about TV shows, Garry Shandling didn't just co-create and star in the very best, he starred in two of the very best. Shandling, who died suddenly today at 66 (as first reported by TMZ), was not only co-creator (with Dennis Klein) and star of the trailblazing HBO comedy The Larry Sanders Show, about the narcissistic, self-loathing host of a late night network talk show, but earlier co-created (with Alan Zweibel) and starred in It's Garry Shandling's Show, an incredibly self-aware sitcom (originally airing on Showtime, and later rerun on Fox) where Sanders broke the fourth wall, went into the studio audience, and had a theme song so meta, it puts Abed on Community to shame: You can trace an entire generation of TV comedy  to Larry Sanders. Not only did powerhouse writer/producers like Judd Apatow and Steve Levitan take early jobs there, »

Freaks and Geeks: The Complete Series Blu-ray Collector’s Edition Review

22 March 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Freeks and Geeks: The Complete Series

Starring Linda Cardellini, John Francis Daley, James Franco, Samm Levine, Seth Rogen, Jason Segel, Martin Starr, Becky Ann Baker, Joe Flaherty, and Busy Philipps.

Synopsis:

The modern classic, Freaks and Geeks, arrives on Blu-ray at last! Set in 1980 at the fictional McKinley High in Detroit, Freaks and Geeks focused on two groups of outsiders: the stoners, tough kids and bad girls; and the brains, nerds and squares. Although this Emmy award-winning series ran for only one season, it has remained a cult favorite and a benchmark of quality television.

Sure, if you have a Netflix account, you can stream all the episodes of Freaks and Geeks as part of your monthly subscription, thus saving yourself the price of this set, but as its name implies, Shout! Factory’s Freaks and Geeks Complete Series Blu-ray Collector’s Edition is for hardcore fans of the series. »

17 New Movies to Watch at Home This Week on Blu-ray/DVD

21 March 2016 5:55 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Welcome back to This Week In Discs where we check out tomorrow’s new releases today! Eureka [UK] What is it? Jack McCann (Gene Hackman) is a prospector wasting his years in the frozen north until a magical moment lands him in a cave lined with gold. Two decades later he’s one of the world’s wealthiest men, living on his own island in the Caribbean, and dying a little bit inside with every breathe. His wife is an addict, his daughter (Theresa Russell) is entangled with a suspicious suitor (Rutger Hauer), and Miami mobsters (Joe Pesci, Mickey Rourke) are after his land. Why buy it? Nicolas Roeg’s 1983 drama isn’t necessarily a great movie — despite that killer cast — but it is an endlessly fascinating one. Beautiful exteriors give way to surreal touches, and sex and violence weave their tendrils throughout what amounts to a character piece about one very determined, paranoid »

The subversive messages snuck into Melrose Place

For 2 years in the 1990s, an art group snuck props containing hidden political messages into Fox’s glamorous soap, Melrose Place

When it comes to matters of morality and ethics, Us TV Networks are notoriously strict on what their shows may or may not depict. Remember the episode of Friends in which Rachel and Monica fight over the apartment’s last condom? After the fuss following Seinfeld’s condom episode, NBC stopped the creators from showing an actual condom wrapper, hence the use of a generic box.

The same went for A Different World episode Time Keeps On Slippin, when Producer-Director Debbie Allen was forced to have a character point to a handbag rather than show a packaged condom.

A similar stringent attitude applies to alcohol and drug references. In The Italian Bob episode of The Simpsons when Lisa gets drunk, Fox banned producers from showing her »
