Adult Swim’s Next Insane Comedy ‘Dream Corp LLC’ Will Get Into Your Head (And Mess With It)

9 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Get ready to enter your own mind — and maybe blow it wide open. On Oct. 23, the new Adult Swim series “Dream Corp LLC” premieres, and it’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.

Per the official synopsis, the series is “an absurd comedy set in a neglected dream therapy facility. Each week desperate patients have their dreams recorded and analyzed by Dream Corp’s absent-minded professor, Dr. Roberts (Jon Gries), and his team of unremarkable scientists.”

Created by Daniel Stessen (who won the 2013 SXSW Grand Jury Award for his animated short “The Gold Sparrow”), the series is a hybrid in more ways than one, using a mix of live-action footage and rotoscoped animation to capture the divide between dreams and reality. The effect created leads to a »

Slash Trailer Takes Erotic Fan Fiction to the Next Level

10 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There are erotic fan fiction fans. And then there are those who devote their life to writing it. Neil is in the author camp. And his hobby may have just gotten him ostracised from his classmates in the sure-to-be hilarious new romantic comedy Slash. Today, we have the first trailer and the official poster for Slash, and if you're a fan or writer of fan fiction, this is one future cult classic that is not to be missed.

Neil is a questioning high school freshman whose main social outlet is the steamy erotic fan fiction he writes about Vanguard, the brawny, galaxy-hopping hero of a popular sci-fi franchise. When Neil's stories are exposed in class he is mortified, but the effortlessly-cool Julia comes to his defense. An erotic fan fic writer herself, Julia pushes Neil to publish his stories to an online "adult" forum, where they quickly grab the attention of the site moderator, »

10 TV Shows That Outstayed Their Welcome

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

It's hard to walk away from a successful show; for every Breaking Bad or Seinfeld that goes out on top, many more stick around too long trying to milk it dry. Some of the greatest shows – even a few that made our mammoth "100 Greatest TV Shows" list – have hung around for an extra season or 12. Like these 10 series, for example.

True Blood

2008-14

Strange how everybody loved this Southern-gothic vampire-sex fantasy for a few years there—then it started turning into self-parodic leprechaun porn.

If you’re not familiar, Larry Sanders stars Garry Shandling as the chronically insecure host of a struggling late-night talk show. Rip Torn co-stars as his no-bs producer Artie, along with Jeffrey Tambor as Larry’s self-loathing sidekick Hank Kingsley. Looking back now, Sanders was revolutionary, »

‘Cafe Society’ Review

22 September 2016 10:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jesse EisenbergKristen Stewart, Steve Carell, Corey Stoll, Ken Stott, Sheryl Lee | Written and Directed by Woody Allen

Woody Allen is the kind of director that has cemented a style that is his very own. When the opening music begins to play and the letters appear on the screen you know that you’re about to watch a Woody Allen film. Café Society, Woody’s latest, begins in much the same way as his other cinematic offerings, and the familiar territory almost feels comforting.

Café Society has a cast of both Woody Allen alumni and first-timers, and it’s a good one. Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart reconnect after appearing together in Adventureland and American Ultra. Steve Carell (The Office), Corey Stoll (Midnight in Paris) and Ken Stott (The Hobbit) among others grace the screen in a gathering of acting talent that really dive in head-first and do their director proud. »

Kathy Bates Reveals Her Toughest Role, Looks Back on Career Ahead of Walk of Fame Honor

20 September 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Kathy Bates receives her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Sept. 20, the moment will hold much significance. “It’s a big deal to me,” the Oscar winner admits. “It’s going to be right in front of the TLC Chinese Theatre. I just discovered that and kept asking, ‘Are you sure?’”

Bates adds that this is meaningful to her for several reasons. “I have a photograph from around 1956 with my Aunt Lee, right in front of the theater,” Bates says of the location, which was then known as Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. “She and my grandmother lived out here and we came often to visit them, driving cross-country from Memphis.” Bates can recall spending the day with her mother’s sister, having tea at Bullock’s department store, and walking around the theater. Her aunt died of breast cancer over 40 years ago, but Bates holds her memory dear. »

The next project from successful showrunner Mike Schur (The Office, Parks and Recreation, Brooklyn Nine-Nine) is here, and it's not like anything you've seen before. In one of the more original new series of Fall 2016, The Good Place veers away from Schur's typical (and hugely successful) workplace comedies and tackles the afterlife. But can a show touch on a subject like this, find good ways to handle issues like religion and morality, and still manage to stay funny? Find out if The Good Place is worth visiting.

‘Documentary Now’: A Missed Opportunity Reveals The IFC Show’s Biggest Flaw

16 September 2016 2:31 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The most impressive thing about “Documentary Now,” the Bill Hader/Fred Armisen/Seth Meyers collaboration that’s just launched its second season on IFC, is the attention to detail. In creating these stand-alone tributes to iconic docs like “Jiro Dreams of Sushi” and “Grey Gardens,” the team prides itself on accuracy beyond compare for all elements of production, even going so far as using 1920s camera lenses for the first season’s “Nanook of the North” homage, or traveling to Tijuana to capture that edgy “Vice” feel.

That stunning ability to recreate the look and feel of the original documentaries is of course accompanied by jokes. But to some degree, it’s the basic act of recreating the docs with Hader and Armisen in the lead that serves as the primary gag — and it’s now clear »

Review: Is 'The Good Place' a heavenly new comedy for Kristen Bell & Ted Danson?

16 September 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Michael Schur's choice of TV subjects started out very small, growing over time until his latest show is about life, the universe, and everything. Schur started out writing for Greg Daniels on The Office, telling obscure stories about obscure people whose lives and dreams rarely grew beyond a paper company branch office in Scranton. Then he and Daniels created Parks and Recreation, which began almost as small, focusing on the staff of an Indiana town's parks department, before expanding outward until Leslie and Ben both had prominent national government jobs (one of them perhaps becoming President by the end). Then he and Dan Goor did Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which is about New York cops, focusing mainly on squadroom goofiness but occasionally showing the detectives taking down drug rings, mobsters, and even a serial killer. Now, though, comes the Schur-created The Good Place (it debuts Monday at 10 on NBC with back-to-back episodes, »

The Hollars – Review

15 September 2016 4:38 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

 

Well, we were just looking at a family “drama-dy” from Japan, Our Little Sister, so let’s turn our multiplex jet airliner right around and head back to the states. Our destination is the good ole’ heartland of the Us of A, and lots of laughs and tears are in store. Now this family unit is a bit older than the Sister quartet, with two sons well past their twenties along with their spouses, and ‘exes’. Oh, and this time out the parents play a big part in the story. Speaking of airliners, the big box office winner last week was the true tale of flying heroics Sully, directed by actor Clint Eastwood. Well, this film is also directed by an actor, John Krasinski (he’s in front of the camera, too). This is his first time helming a film since 2009’s Brief Interviews With Hideous Men, his directing debut. »
