‘They Came Together’ Review

14 hours ago | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, Ellie Kemper, Cobie Smulders, Christopher Meloni, Max GreenfieldEd Helms, Jason Mantzoukas, Melanie Lynskey, Michael Ian Black, Michael Murphy, Kenan Thompson, Jack McBrayer, Ken Marino | Written by David Wain, Michael Showalter | Directed by David Wain

Spoof films are rarely done well. There is so little subtlety in them, and they often result in terribly written and ridiculous slapstick comedy films that mock other films in a very obvious and unrelentingly silly manner (see Scary Movie 4, Date Movie, Disaster Movie, A Haunted House) but this, a satire more than a spoof, finally shows the pretenders how it’s done, bringing a softer hand to a genre that is flooded with terribly over-bearing abominations.

Directed by David Wain (Role Models, Wanderlust) who co-writes it alongside Michael Showalter (Wet Hot American Summer), They Came Together is something of a throwback, reminiscent of older spoof-comedy films like Airplane. »

The Woman Greta Gerwig Loved Doesn’t Exist In First Clip From The Humbling

29 August 2014 8:55 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Barry Levinson’s new drama, The Humbling, has a lot of elements going for it. First of all, it has an opening night launch at the Toronto International Film Festival on Thursday, after its premiere in Venice this week, which is hopefully a good sign. Second, it has a controversial 2009 novel from Philip Roth as its source material. Third, it has a terrific ensemble, including Al Pacino, Greta Gerwig, Dianne Wiest, Mandy Patinkin, Kyra Sedgwick and Charles Grodin. Also, classic comedy writer Buck Henry (The Graduate) worked on the screenplay. Now, the first clip from the film has landed online and it is as raw and wrenching as we have come to expect from Roth’s work.

This early clip from The Humbling is bruising and bitter, with Gerwig hard to like as a woman who abandoned her relationship and did not return to her lover’s hospital bed in the aftermath of his surgery. »

What Makes a Great TV Series Finale?

29 August 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

What makes a good series finale? Three events this week bring this question into focus: Sunday's "True Blood" series ender, Monday's celebration of the departed "Breaking Bad" at the Emmys, and Wednesday's Vox interview with David Chase, where the "Sopranos" creator finally offered an answer to the question of whether Tony died at the end of the notorious blackout finale of the 1999-2007 series.

All three of these finales, plus others of shows that went off the air this year ("Dexter," "How I Met Your Mother") drew both kudos and complaints. Some fans found these finales satisfying and others found them cheap copouts. It almost makes you sorry for the writers, who seem bound to disappoint some faction of fans, no matter how they choose to wrap things up.

Take "True Blood," for instance. (Warning: Spoilers follow.) Fans who'd been watching since the beginning of the HBO series seven years »

Steve Carell Has A Menacing Message In New Foxcatcher Trailer

28 August 2014 1:17 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When I think of Steve Carell, I think of Despicable Me and The Office and the “Produce Pete” segment on The Daily Show; I do not think of a menacing sociopath or possible murderer. But all the buzz on Carell’s latest performance in the upcoming drama Foxcatcher is that he’s one terrifying man. Having watched the latest trailer for the film, I can certainly see where the buzz comes from.

Carell plays John du Pont, a millionaire with a passion for amateur sports. Du Pont runs Foxcatcher Farms, where he helps to train wrestlers for the Us Olympics Team. This ultimately leads to tragedy once du Pont’s friend Dave Shultz (Mark Ruffalo) and his brother Mark (Channing Tatum) join up with Foxcatcher Farms as they prepare for another Olympic bid. Du Pont’s increasingly erratic behavior and obsessions begin to take a toll on the relationships between the three men, »

Ricky Gervais: 'David Brent movie is almost a musical'

28 August 2014 9:48 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ricky Gervais has said that his forthcoming David Brent movie Life on the Road is "almost a musical".

The Office's creator shed light on the project, which will begin production next year, during an appearance on the Opie with Jim Norton show.

"It's another fake documentary about what he's doing now and what he's doing now is sort of repping," Gervais said.

"But he hasn't let go of this dream of being a rock star and he's got a lot of songs together and he's got a young band together that he's paying through the nose for, and they're just sort of ripping him off. They're sort of session musicians so he's losing money.

"He has to cash in a pension, he does a little tour he wants the record companies to come along to. Obviously he thinks it's like Scorsese following the Rolling Stones around, this documentary team, »

Allison Janney on Her Double Emmys Win and Post-‘West Wing’ Act in TV

28 August 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When “The West Wing” ended in 2006, Allison Janney was secretly terrified.

She worried she would never find another TV series role as powerful as the one she held in the Bartlet administration for seven seasons. She was nervous about being typecast as a specific breed of alpha-female. And she fretted that reality TV was going to take over network TV entirely, turning high-end scripted shows into endangered species.

Boy, was she wrong.

Janney, 54, is the embodiment of the extraordinary range of opportunities available to established actors in television’s ever-widening programming landscape. She took home two Emmys (Nos. 5 and 6 on her mantle) this month for her work in two very different series: the CBS comedy “Mom” and the Showtime period drama “Masters of Sex.”

As fellow winner Julianna Margulies observed as she accepted her trophy for “The Good Wife” at the Aug. 25 Emmy Awards, “What a »

Check Out This New Image From Pixar’s Inside Out

27 August 2014 12:31 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We likely have to wait until Disney’s Big Hero 6 hits theaters this November to see a trailer for Pixar’s newest feature, Inside Out, but today we have our first official image of the film to tide us over.

The photo features 11-year old girl Riley, whose mind acts as Inside Out‘s main focus. Riley’s family is moving cross country, and the stress from the move throws off her emotions, which actually act as the main characters: Joy (Parks and Recreation‘s Amy Poehler), Anger (comedian Lewis Black), Distrust (The Mindy Project and The Office actress Mindy Kaling), Fear (SNL and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs alum Bill Hader), and Sadness (The Office‘s Phyllis Smith).

We’ve already seen some concept art for the film, featuring the character designs for the emotions, but this is our first look at Riley herself. It may not »

Review: Alejandro G. Iñárritu's 'Birdman' opens Venice with a sure-fire Oscar bet

27 August 2014 2:38 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Venice - Truth or dare? This is a game played by two characters in magnificently acidic metatextual comedy "Birdman." It's also the film as a three-word question. Truth or dare? Real stage actor or star? You can have your artistic integrity, or you can have a hit. You can go Method, or you can really fly. You can be Riggan Thomson (Michael Keaton), or you can be Birdman (Riggan Thomson). Initially, "Birdman" poses as a trenchant critique of the seemingly endless parade of men in capes that is the summer blockbuster season (Michael Fassbender and Robert Downey Jr. are name-checked as fine actors currently otherwise occupied), but it's actually rather more nuanced than that. The values of the sober-minded art espoused by a poisonous critic (Lindsay Duncan) and the untrustworthy joys of escapist cinema are both probed and prodded in this film. It's impossible for a film featuring the nightmare »

Angela Kinsey Talks The Hotwives Of Orlando, Wearing Enormous Fake Boobs, the Legacy of The Office, and More

25 August 2014 2:39 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Hulu original series The Hotwives of Orlando is a hilarious and raunchy parody of one of the most popular franchises in reality television.  It takes you inside the uber-exclusive and glamorous world of six hot housewives in the sexy city of Orlando, as they fight over pretty much everything, except for their love of shoes, plastic surgery and spending all of their husbands’ money.  The seven-episode series stars Casey Wilson, Kristen Schaal, Angela Kinsey, Tymberlee Hill, Andrea Savage, and show creators Dannah Phirman and Danielle Schneider. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Angela Kinsey talked about how she got involved with the show, that she had never seen a single episode of The Real Housewives before doing this (and that she never plans to watch again), why this show is so funny, even if you aren’t a fan of reality TV, finding the right enormous boobs for her character, »

See Steve Carell in this 'creepy' poster for 'Foxcatcher'

25 August 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Despite playing the American version of the world’s worst boss on The Office for seven seasons, Steve Carell has a well-deserved reputation as one of the most affable and generous professionals in entertainment. It’s that perception that makes his portrayal of blue-blooded Olympic benefactor—and deranged murderer—John du Pont in Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher so effectively unsettling, and it certainly contributed to the film’s ecstatic critical reception at May’s Cannes Film Festival. More than two months before Foxcatcher’s Nov. 14 release date, Carell is already on the short list of contenders for a Best Actor Academy Award. »

Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon: Day 3 - HitFix Picks

22 August 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

[As you probably already know, starting on Thursday, August 21, Fxx is running the Every Simpsons Ever Marathon, running through all 552 episodes of "The Simpsons," plus "The Simpsons Movie." To aid in your viewing process, Team HitFix is selecting our favorite episodes from each day, plus an episode or two that you can skip and use as a bathroom or nap break.] Somehow, despite including two different clip shows, Day 3 of Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon leads us deep into the show's Golden Years, as we finish Season 4, go through Season 5 and most of Season 6, spanning from "So It's Come to This: A Simpsons Clip Show" through "The PTA Disbands." For the second straight day, we had no trouble picking two favorites apiece and we left out a slew of great episodes including Krusty's Kancellation, Bart's rise to "I Didn't Do It!" fame, James Woods' stint at the Kwik-e-Mart, Homer's trip into space and Lisa's attempts to design a new Malibu Stacy. [The image accompanying this story is from "Marge in Chains" which, if I'm being honest, didn't come close to making our list, but it's the only official image Fxx was able to provide for the episodes airing on Saturday.] My own greatest regret is that I couldn't pick "Treehouse of Horror V," which features "The Shinning" and "Time and Punishment," which are two of my five "Treehouse" segments. However, I stand by the two episodes I chose. And guess what? Day 4 was even Harder, choosing-wise. But that's tomorrow. »
