Chicago – “No soup for you!” is one of the most memorable TV catchphrases of the 1990s, uttered into immortality by actor Larry Thomas on “Seinfeld,” who portrayed “The Soup Nazi.” Thomas was in the Chicago area recently to act in “Mind Over Mindy,” a new comedy from writer/director Robert Alaniz.
Larry Thomas was born in Brooklyn, and has been a working actor since the 1980s. He made his appearance on “Seinfeld” in 1996, and garnered an Emmy nomination for his Soup Nazi role, and he also appeared in the final episode of “Seinfeld.” Since then, he has continued to do character roles in TV and films such as “Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery,” “Arrested Development,” “Scrubs,” a spoof called “Zero Dark Dirty” and Robert Alaniz’s previous film “You Don’t Say!”.
He also continues to appear as The Soup Nazi at events, including a recent 25th anniversary celebration of “Seinfeld’s” first season, »

Any time you get the chance to write about Uwe Boll, you do it. This man is one of the most interesting filmmakers out there based upon his tarnished reputation and propensity to box film journalists who enjoy tearing his career apart, but even more flabbergasting is that Boll Has seen success. Most people just don’t pay attention to that. In 2009, a film called Rampage acted as a vessel for Boll’s political satire, giving an oddly respectable voice to the usually crude creator.
Since Rampage, Boll went on to direct another string of underwhelming efforts, but a new trailer released today suggests the auteur is ready to re-visit his most successful material for another go at corruption, class warfare, and governmental gripes. Yes, Rampage: Capital Punishment brings back Brendan Fletcher as the disgruntled Bill Williamson, suiting up once again to unite the typically unheard voices for a bit of rebellious outreaching. »

Are we done hating director Uwe Boll yet? Despite a spat of truly awful genre fare back in the early 2000s, the notorious German filmmaker has been on quite a role lately, delivering some of the best movies of his career. He's finally making what he really wants to make, and some of those films, like Rampage and Assault on Wall Street are truly inspired personal works that highlight his strengths as a visionary and storyteller. He has a distinct voice, and when the material fits, he's quite adept at bringing a powerful message to the screen.
This good work has leaked into his latest offering, despite it being a franchise sequel to one of his earlier groaners. 2009's In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale might not have registered very high with critics, but it truly capture the imagination of video game fans everywhere, and proved »
A sequel to Blubberella once seemed like a definite thing, but no one is really asking for it. It will forever be a one-off cult movie buried on Netflix, and despite it continuing to grow a steady audience, that strong fanbase seems so ashamed that they love the movie, they're afraid to ask for a follow-up. And maybe that's an okay thing.
The movie was envisioned as a direct-to-video franchise way back in 2011. A throwaway joke capable of earning quick cash with its quirky premise. The storyline followed a woman so obese, her footsteps caused explosions. In the movie, she takes on a Nazi army with her trusty duel swords, ready to slice anyone that makes fun of her.
Director Uwe Boll is pretty confident a sequel will never happen.
The film was shot simultaneously with Bloodrayne: The Third Reich, using the same sets and actors. A director who likes »
