Marmite TV: 5 shows the public love but critics loathe

27 June 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

"One man's poison should be another man's honey. That's the way it's supposed to be."

Whether you're a Mrs Brown's Boys fan or not, it's difficult to disagree with Brendan O'Carroll when he argues that there's room for all different forms and styles of entertainment.

"It's the way it's supposed to be," the comic recently told Digital Spy. "Otherwise we'd only have one comedian, or one band..."

It may have been dubbed "lazy", "jaw-droppingly past its sell-by date" and even "the worst comedy ever made" - but Mrs Brown's Boys still pulls in the punters, with a fourth series and cartoon spinoff in the works, plus a big-screen outing hitting cinemas today (June 27).

Of course, O'Carroll's creation is far from the first TV show to be mauled by the critics, while simultaneously pulling in record ratings - here's just a few shows that have been loved and loathed in equal measure. »

Comics Alliance reviews the new mutant twinkies inspired by X-Men Days of Future Past. No, really

Self Styled Siren Farran's first novel "The Missing Reel" is coming out this year. If you've ever read her site you know this is a big deal since she's a wonderful writer. She promises lots of film references in this romantic comedy set in the 1980s at a NYC revival house.

Grace of Monaco opens Cannes to scathing reviews: "Worse than Diana"

14 May 2014 4:57 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Nicole Kidman can't seem to catch a break when it comes to the Cannes Film Festival. Two years after she hit the headlines for dousing Zac Efron in The Paperboy, she returns this year with royal biopic Grace of Monaco.

The Grace Kelly film will premiere on the Croisette this evening, but critics have already delivered unanimously scathing reviews for the Olivier Dahan drama ("worse than Diana"). We round up the initial reaction below...

Peter Bradshaw - The Guardian

"It's traditional for Cannes to start with something spectacular. This is certainly no exception. It is a film so awe-inspiringly wooden that it is basically a fire risk. The cringe factor is ionospherically high. A fleet of ambulances may have to be stationed outside the Palais to take tuxed audiences to hospital afterwards to have their toes uncurled under general anaesthetic."

Nancy Malone, Pioneering TV Producer-Director, Studio Exec, Dies at 78

9 May 2014 3:16 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Nancy Malone, a ground-breaking and Emmy-winning director-producer, Emmy-nominated actress and the first woman VP at a major studio, died May 8 at City of Hope in Duarte, Calif., as the result of pneumonia that arose from complications of leukemia. She was 78.

Shortly after producing her first TV movie, “Winner Take All,” starring Shirley Jones, for NBC, Malone joined 20th Century Fox’s TV department as director of TV development. Soon she was named vice president of television, becoming the first woman VP at a major studio. During her time at Fox, Malone co-founded Women in Film.

Malone was an actress for decades, appearing extensively on TV and on stage, before moving behind the camera and into the executive suite and continued acting even after doing so, including a supporting role in the 1973 Burt Reynolds starrer “The Man Who Loved Cat Dancing.”

She joined Tomorrow Entertainment as a story analyst in 1971 and »

Required Reading: The Worst Movie on IMDb and the Real Life of a Screenwriter

2 May 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The best movie culture writing from around the internet-o-sphere. There will be a quiz later. Just leave a tab open for us, will ya? “The Story Behind the Worst Movie on IMDb” — David Goldenberg at Five Thirty Eight tries to make sense of an average movie that has been absolutely buried by the masses who frequent the Internet Movie Database. Maybe unsurprisingly, it involves a real world coalition spurred on by political sentiment and identity preservation. I wonder how they’ll feel about Goldenberg giving the movie they hate a huge spotlight. “The 11 Defining Features of the Summer Blockbuster” — Also at Five Thirty Eight, Walt Hickey crunches an absurd amount of numbers to figure out whether sword fights or car explosions are more important to crafting a giant, sweaty movie. “The hidden feminism of Audrey Hepburn” — Monika Bartyzel at The Week argues that underneath the pill box and cloche hats, Eliza Doolittle »

How to Play... a superhero: Tips from Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman

19 April 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Bow down, mere mortals. Superheroes are among us once more. Captain America is already on screens battling the Winter Soldier. Spider-Man will soon be back to amaze us. Then two generations of X-Men unite in Days Of Future Past, while we'll be meeting the Guardians Of The Galaxy later this summer. And that's not to mention new outings in 2015 for the Avengers and Batman and Superman (together in the same movie!) in 2016.

It's astounding to think that, only two decades ago, all we had in terms of superhero blockbusters was a Batman franchise about to descend into Joel Schumacher-inspired camp. Today, the possibilities for Hollywood actors wanting to don cape and spandex are endless – but how best to approach the gig of playing a hero who is even more super than most A-listers already assume they are?

It’s Hands On For The Sundance Teaser Poster Of ‘The Voices’

21 January 2014 3:36 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Sundance Film Festival is always a chance for movies that are slightly more ‘out there’ than your regular blockbusters to take centre stage and be welcomed into audiences hearts. Released ahead of its Sundance premiere is the teaser poster for The Voices;  the latest project from Marjane Satrapi (Persepolis, Chicken With Plums).  The film stars Ryan Reynolds as he gets caught up in a murder and starts taking advice from his talking dog. We’re serious, here’s the official synposis:

‘This genre-bending tale centers around Jerry Hickfang, a lovable but disturbed factory worker who yearns for attention from a woman in accounting. When their relationship takes a sudden, murderous turn, Jerry’s evil talking cat and benevolent talking dog lead him down a fantastical path where he ultimately finds salvation.’

For an independently financed movie it’s got an unusually star-filled cast including, alongside Reynolds as Jerry, Anna Kendrick, »

7 January 2014 8:30 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

You may have noticed, yesterday's start to my list of this year's most anticipated movies got off to a bit of a cynical start. Well, I hope to change that with today's batch of ten films as I think we are getting into better and better territory and a group of films I feel far more genuinely excited to see, and a couple of which that may end up being the most talked about films of the year.
