TV Review: ‘Superstore’

24 November 2015 7:30 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Casting and chemistry can, occasionally, trump concept. So NBC’s big-box-store development approach receives an unexpected (and slightly ironic) infusion of energy from “Superstore,” thanks largely to America Ferrera and Ben Feldman as its adorable, meant-for-each-other leads. While much of this is familiar – and even echoes that “People of Walmart” Web meme – the show comes closer to approximating the desired mix of sweetness and silliness than most of the network’s workplace series have since “The Office.” Receiving an early preview behind “The Voice,” “Superstore” returns in January with the also-ok “Telenovela,” offering a pretty good comedy hour, at reasonable prices.

Despite a single-camera format, “Superstore” only once ventures beyond the parking lot of the fictional wholesaler, Cloud 9, during the four episodes previewed. The premiere introduces Jonah (“Mad Men’s” Feldman, last seen on NBC in the short-lived romantic comedy “A to Z”), who immediately antagonizes the level-headed Amy »

Chicago – He may be Dwight Schrute of “The Office” forever in reruns, but he is also – according to his new memoir – “The Bassoon King.” Rainn Dietrich Wilson created the offbeat Schrute, and has had a diverse and high profile career. He was at the Yellow Box Theater in Naperville, Ill., recently, being interview by Chicago artist Tony Fitzpatrick, in an event sponsored by Anderson’s Bookshop.

Born in Seattle, Washington, Wilson’s family moved to the Chicago area during his high school years, and he attended New Trier High in Winnetka, Ill.

He worked steadily in TV and film before landing the role »

Adult Swim Orders John Krasinski and Stephen Merchant’s Animated Series Dream Corp, LLC

17 November 2015 12:22 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Adult Swim has green-lit Dream Corp, LLC, a new animated series from creator Daniel Stessen, who made an acclaimed animated short called The Gold Sparrow. John Krasinski and Stephen Merchant, who first worked together on the U.S. version of The Office, are serving as executive producers alongside Allyson Seeger, Krasinski's Sunday Night Productions partner. The comedy will follow the "absent-minded" Dr. Roberts (voiced by Jon Gries) and his team of lackluster analysts at a neglected dream-therapy facility as they treat a rotating cast of "desperate" patients. A pilot for Dream Corp was originally ordered in 2014, and it will be the first of Adult Swim's series to use rotoscope technology, the process by which live-action footage is traced over, frame by frame. The show will begin production in Los Angeles later this year.  »

Film Review: ‘The Big Short’

13 November 2015 3:06 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Of all the current century’s most cataclysmic world-historical events, the 2008 financial crisis is probably among the most poorly understood. Filmmakers looking to rectify this have already approached the story from a number of angles, from sober-minded documentary (“Inside Job”) to operatic boiler-room drama (“Margin Call”), but the route taken by “The Big Short” is by far the most radical, turning a dense economics lecture into a hyper-caffeinated postmodern farce, a spinach smoothie skillfully disguised as junk food. Taking style cues from hip-hop videos, Funny or Die clips and “The Office,” Adam McKay’s film hits its share of sour notes; some important plot points are nearly impossible for laypeople to decipher even with cheeky, fourth-wall-obliterating tutorials, and the combination of eye-crossing subject matter and nontraditional structure makes it a risky bet at the box office. But there’s an unmistakable, scathing sense of outrage behind the whole endeavor, and »

Love The Coopers – The Review

12 November 2015 9:54 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Social media is filled with complaints about retailers jumping the gun on Christmas. Hey the jack-o-lantern’s not yet ripe when the tinsel and wreaths go on sale. Well at least this inspired one of the great double holiday flicks, The Nightmare Before Christmas. So, if the mall starts early, why not the attached (usually) multiplex theatres. Hollywood loves sending out movies at the end of the year set around the staples of the season. So, before you even think about grabbing the  turkey (let’s not get ahead of this piece) for Thanksgiving, here’s a flick about a big, big family getting things set for the big Christmas Eve shindig. Now Mom’s a perfectionist, so everything has to be plotted out and just right. Of course, like most families, things are far from perfect. Doesn’t mean they can’t try their darndest in the new star-packed cinema stocking, »

The Office Almost Used Modest Mouse for Its Theme Song, Because 2005 Was a Truly Different Time

12 November 2015 9:12 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Aside from championing cringe comedy and cursing the world with “that's what she said,” one of the The Office's early trademarks was its theme song, which, let's be honest, you're probably tapping out on your laptop right now. But according to Rainn Wilson's memoir The Bassoon King, the show almost went with a few other choices. “Many songs were being considered seriously, including ‘Better Things’ by the Kinks and ‘Float On’ by Modest Mouse,” the man behind Dwight Schrute writes. “The one we all wanted most of all was ‘Mr. Blue Sky’ by Electric Light Orchestra. It’s a sensational song and its jubilant, upbeat refrain would have fit perfectly over the drab video of the opening credits.” For better or for worse — let's be honest, for better — “Mr. Blue Sky” was taken by Lax, another member of NBC's 2005 TV class. The show ended up with its now-famous »
