19 hours ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

So many shows on the Top 100 list got axed before their time, from Deadwood to My So-Called Life, from Freaks and Geeks to Party Down. These also could have been contenders, had they a little more time to find the audience. We present the best of the gone-too-soon bunch that didn't make our list.

In 1995, TriStar Pictures released Joe Johnston’s family adventure film “Jumanji,” starring Robin Williams and Bonnie Hunt, about a board game that comes to life and wreaks havoc until the players have completed it. The film was a box office success and has had a lasting impact on a generation of kids.

‘Crunch Time’ Review: Rooster Teeth’s Sci-Fi Comedy Is ‘Inception’ With Nerd-Bros

10 September 2016 1:03 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After solidly tackling the post-apocalyptic thriller with “Day 5,” Rooster Teeth takes a swing at the science-fiction comedy genre with its second, “Crunch Time,” and hits it out of the park once again.

Read More: ‘Day 5’ Review: Rooster Teeth’s Post-Apocalyptic Drama Thrills (And Kills)

Starring five lovable weirdos as eccentric science students, “Crunch Time” clips along at a breakneck pace, seamlessly weaving wacky gags and colorful characters into its intriguing plot exposition. From the discomfort of an interrogation room, the characters in “Crunch Time” recount the shenanigans that got them handcuffed to a metal desk answering to two steely-faced detectives. (Brett Morrin and “True Detective’s” Michael Hyatt, no less). The motley crew explains the origins of “the brain-frame,” a “machine that allows you to place yourself inside another person’s mind.”

Today is publication day for TV (The Book): Two Experts Pick the Greatest American Shows of All Time, the anthology where Matt Zoller Seitz and I rank the top 100 American sitcoms and dramas ever, and write essays about them, and a whole lot of other things (movies, miniseries, current shows, shows that weren't top 100-worthy but were sentimental favorites in some way, etc.). You can order it in multiple editions (including an audiobook recorded by Matt and me) at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, Google Play, Kobo, or your favorite indie bookseller.   Here's Matt and I explaining how we assigned scores to figure out our top 100: And here's us explaining our rules for what was and wasn't considered for the top 100: We're very proud of the book, and can't wait for people to start reading, but if you still need a taste or two to push you over the buying edge, »

33 Shows That Take Us Back in Time

2 September 2016 10:45 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

The great thing about TV is that it offers a few hours of respite from real life. We live and breathe the characters and their stories from our favorite shows. Sometimes the feelings are so real, it's like we're a part of what's going on even if it's set in a time period we're not familiar with.

There are shows that bring on the nostalgia and others that bring the past back to life! You can learn about life during the Salem Witch Trials or learn what it was like during the early hip-hop era.

From classic tales of romance set in the far past to the struggles of teenage life in the 80s, here's a list of TV shows that will take you back in time!

 

1. Freaks and Geeks Set in the early 80s this teen dramedy told the story about the unpopular kids of high school: the freaks and geeks. »

The nostalgia is real, guys. Freaks and Geeks star John Francis Daley took to Twitter to pull our heart strings with some vintage behind-the-scenes photos from the beloved and criminally short-lived series. "#fbf Behind-the-scenes Freaks and Geeks shots by writer/photographer extraordinaire @Gabestuff," he tweeted. In the photos, below and above, Daley is seen with his TV sister played by Linda Cardellini, hamming it up with Jason Segel looking on, talking to executive producer Judd Apatow and standing by with costar Samm Levine. Freaks and Geeks was set in 1980 and told the story of two different misfit high school groups. The show only lasted one season from 1999-2000. Seth Rogen, James Franco, Martin Starr »

‘Sausage Party’ Behind-The-Scenes Clip: Seth Rogen And Composers Discuss The Film’s Score

16 August 2016 3:39 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The adult animated film “Sausage Party” was released last Friday to initial commercial and critical success. The film follows Frank, a sausage (played by Seth Rogen) who resides in a supermarket aisle, who discovers the truth about what happens when he and the other foods are brought to The Great Beyond, i.e. a kitchen in a customer’s home, and tries to warn all of his friends about their impending doom. While the film has garnered a reputation for its raunchy humor and theological underpinnings, one element that has gone largely unnoticed is its score. Watch an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip from the film featuring Rogen, co-directors Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon, and composers Alan Menken and Christopher Lennertz discuss the film’s score.

Rooster Teeth’s Half-Hour Comedy ‘Crunch Time’ To Arrive On September 11

12 August 2016 2:36 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Teeth has dubbed the middle months of 2016 as its “summer of animation,” but by the end of the season, the digital studio will have fit some live-action laughs into its schedule, too. It has released a story featurette for Crunch Time, a half-hour, sci-fi comedy that is expected to launch on September 11th.

Crunch Time will follow a group of grad students who accidentally open up a black hole while fooling around with a machine that induces lucid dreams. The show’s cast is a good one; it includes Samm Levine (Freaks And Geeks), Nick Rutherford (Good Neighbor), Vine weirdo Avery Monsen, and Rooster Teeth co-founder Burnie Burns. Several of those performers appear in the aforementioned featurette, which was uploaded on August 11th, a month before Crunch Time’s slate premiere date.

Crunch Time is one of two new shows available exclusively to those who subscribe to Rooster Teeth’s premium service, »

Top 5 Seth Rogen Movies

Top 5 Seth Rogen MoviesTop 5 Seth Rogen MoviesAmanda Wood & Adriana Floridia8/11/2016 10:00:00 Am

Canada’s own Seth Rogen has become pretty prolific in the industry these past couple years, with at least one new movie released every year. This month he’s got another movie hitting theatres with Sausage Party.

We don’t know about you, but Sausage Party is one of our most anticipated movies of the summer. There have been lots of good animation movies recently, but this is a little different. It’s not often that we see an animated movie aimed at adults, and Sausage Party certainly isn’t targeted towards kids.

If you haven’t watched the hilariously outrageous trailer, the plot follows a hot dog weiner (voiced by Rogen) who discovers the horrors of the world outside the grocery store and strives to let his food companions know the truth. Literally everybody is in this, »

Seth Rogen talks Sausage Party, The Interview and more

Seth Rogen talks Sausage Party, The Interview and moreSeth Rogen talks Sausage Party, The Interview and moreBob Strauss - Cineplex Magazine8/10/2016 10:00:00 Am

Seth Rogen is making trouble again.

Sausage Party may not be the kind of movie that gets a studio hacked to its knees, as the B.C. bad boy’s comedy The Interview did to Sony Pictures two years ago.

However, Rogen’s animated feature looks subversive enough to upset anyone who loves children, holds religious beliefs or eats. That’s more potential enemies than the entire population of North Korea.

Naturally, Rogen could not sound prouder.

“It’s the greatest thing I’ll ever work on in my entire life,” the 34-year-old funnyman says with a self-mocking laugh on the studio backlot at Universal City, California. “My greatest contribution to humanity that I’ll ever have.”

Why would you say that?

‘Ghostbusters’ Director Paul Feig Says He Won’t Reboot Another Classic

8 August 2016 1:11 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Despite the fact that the new rendition of the 1984 classic included some of the best-known female comedians in the industry — Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, Kristen Wiig and Kate McKinnon — this year’s “Ghostbusters” still faced a lot of criticism. The film’s director, Paul Feig, has made up his mind on one thing after the backlash — he will absolutely not be rebooting any more classic movies.

“No, no, no. No, I will not,” he told the Huffington Post. “This one was just too tempting because I knew we could do something with it that was exciting.”

Instead, Feig will continue to work on original material like his successful “Bridesmaids” and his cult hit “Freaks and Geeks.”

But despite the initial criticism that “Ghostbusters” unleashed, Feig has also said that the reaction since the film’s July 15 opening has been positive overall — especially among women and young girls.

James Franco’s Movie Column: How Richard Linklater Inspired My Work

5 August 2016 8:39 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

James + Semaj is a column where James Franco talks to his reverse self, Semaj, about new films. Rather than a conventional review, it is place where James and Semaj can muse about ideas that the films provoke. James loves going to the movies and talking about them. But a one-sided take on a movie, in print, might be misconstrued as a review. As someone in the industry it could be detrimental to James’s career if he were to review his peers, because unlike the book industry—where writers review other writer’s books—the film industry is highly collaborative, and a bad review of a peer could create problems. So, assume that James (and Semaj) love all these films. What they’re interested in talking about is all the ways the films inspire them, and make them think. James is me, and Semaj is the other side of me. »

Icons of Fright Talks Sun Choke With Sarah Hagan!

4 August 2016 5:01 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

This past October, I remember being in Los Angeles and seeing a poster for an upcoming independent thriller called Sun Choke.  I didn’t know much about it at the time but something about it intrigued me and I cataloged it in my head as something to keep on my radar.  A few weeks ago I had the chance to watch it and I was blown away by the story but also the superb acting from Sarah Hagan, Barbara Crampton, and Sara Malakul Lane.  I can see Sun Choke going down as one of the best cult thriller movies of all time.  To prepare for the film’s release, I had the opportunity to sit down with actress Sarah Hagan to learn more about the film, her character, and what it was like to work with the legendary actress Barbara Crampton.

Shannon McGrew.  Thank you so much Sarah for sitting down with me today! »
