Review: Cuban Fury

18 April 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

What better way to charm a lady than to display your dance moves?

Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) leads the cast in British dance-comedy Cuban Fury as Bruce, a middle-management type in a mechanical design office. His boss Drew, played quite creepily by Chris O'Dowd (The It Crowd, Bridesmaids), constantly picks on him and won't stop with the fat jokes (seriously, enough with the fat jokes). Both men are excited by the entrance to the company of American executive Julia (Rashida Jones, Parks and Recreation, Celeste and Jesse Forever).

Bruce has a secret: He and his sister were once young Latin-dance superstars in their region, until an attack by bullies led him to put up his dancing shoes. To impress Julia, whom he spies taking salsa lessons, Bruce turns to his former dance coach Ron (Ian McShane, Deadwood) for aid. Bruce also gets help and advice from his bartender sister (Olivia Colman, »

What Is the Best Movie About Nerds?

7 April 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Last night, HBO premiered Mike Judge's new series Silicon Valley, and I'm pretty sure it's the best show for and about nerds ever made. Forget The Big Bang Theory, forget Head of the Class, forget Freaks and Geeks and forget even The It Crowd. Silicon Valley is a hilarious look at young guys working in the titular hub of the tech world, and much of its humor comes from jokes that only true nerds can appreciate.  In recognition of that series, I thought it'd be interesting to consider its movie equivalent. Nerds have been a staple of cinema for decades but for the most part in stereotypical form. Revenge of the Nerds is certainly the most obvious title in that regard, though the 1980s were full of the conventional glasses-and-pocket-protector variety. Most...

David Tennant, Game of Thrones and more: Who was snubbed by BAFTA?

7 April 2014 7:58 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

There's nothing like an awards 'do to get TV watchers all riled up - where was my favourite show? Why isn't actor X nominated? And where the heck was Insert-Name-Here?!

The Arqiva BAFTA Television Awards are no different, so following the unveiling of this year's nominations, here's just a few unloved shows and stars that were snubbed.

This year's Arqiva BAFTA Television Awards ceremony will be held in London on Sunday, May 18.

The It Crowd, Southcliffe lead BAFTA Television Awards nominations

Gillian Anderson

The Fall - up for best Mini-Series. Jamie Dornan - up for best Leading Actor. But no love for Gillian Anderson, who was so brilliantly frosty as heroine Stella Gibson?

Dornan's towering, terrifying performance as killer Paul Spector blew us away, but Anderson - a veteran of Us television who's won an Emmy and a Golden Globe - was equally impressive with a much less showy part. »

Review: The Double

5 April 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | Pure Movies | See recent Pure Movies news »

This is the Pure Movies review of The Double, directed by Richard Ayoade, and starring Jesse Eisenberg, Mia Wasikowska, Chris O'Dowd, Sally Hawkins, Gemma Chan, Paddy Considine, Noah Taylor, Craig Roberts and Yasmin Paige. Fans of British TV comedy will already be familiar with Richard Ayoade, having starred in The It Crowd, Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace and, more recently, Ben Stiller/Vince Vaughn comedy The Watch. With The Double he continues his departure from TV land and builds on his success as a director following on from his superb 2011 debut Submarine. The story follows Simon (Jesse Eisenberg), a clerical worker who lives a life unnoticed until the new guy at work James (also Jesse Eisenberg) challenges him to pursue what he wants out of life - in this case, love interest Hannah (played by Mia Wasikowska). »

The cast of Garth Marenghi's Darkplace: 10 years on

2 April 2014 11:09 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Sarah Dobbs 3 Apr 2014 - 07:00

What have Matthew Holness, Richard Ayoade, Alice Lowe and Matt Berry been up to in the decade since Garth Marenghi's Darkplace?

It’s been ten years now since author, visionary, and dreamweaver Garth Marenghi’s legendary horror TV show, Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace, was rescued from a vault in Peru and broadcast to a largely unappreciative audience.

Or, you know, in the reality we actually inhabit, it’s been ten years since a group of comedians donned 80s costumes and pretended to be aging filmmakers commenting on their own ‘lost’ series. Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace was a perfect send-up of both trashy low-budget horror and science fiction productions and pompous creators, as a bewigged Matthew Holness straight-facedly explained the unique genius of his horror writing alter ego even as his greatest creation, Dr Rick Dagless M.D., mugged away in the background.

It was a ludicrously high concept show, »

'Of Mice and Men': Chris O'Dowd on laughing with James Franco and killing Leighton Meester (on stage)

28 March 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

You recognize him from Bridesmaids, The It Crowd, Family Tree, Girls and plenty more, but Irish comic Chris O’Dowd has switched gears for his latest role.

He’s playing Lennie, the gentle half of a pair of migrant ranch workers who lead John Steinbeck’s classic Depression-era novella Of Mice and Men. In the newest Broadway revival of the play, O’Dowd makes his Broadway debut opposite James Franco (as the pragmatic George) and Leighton Meester (as a seductive, nameless flirt) in the Anna D. Shapiro-directed production, which opens April 16 at the Longacre Theatre.

Richard Ayoade: 'Making films is exhilarating – and terrifying'

23 March 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Richard Ayoade shot to fame as Moss in The It Crowd but it was Submarine, his debut behind the camera, that won him critical acclaim. As his new film, The Double, is released, he talks about pride, performing and giving up his pop dreams

The premise of Fyodor Dostoevsky's 1846 novella The Double is simple but ingenious: a man lives an entirely unremarkable existence until one day his exact doppelganger shows up. This incongruous situation fast becomes insufferable for two reasons: first, the new guy is slick where he is stammering, popular where he's forgettable, Day-Glo to his beige; and, second, because no one else notices any likeness at all between the pair of them.

The Double, it's said, is meant as an allegory: the straight man is Dostoevsky in real life, shy and often awkward; the arriviste is the author 2.0, the person he sometimes wished he was, who is quick-witted and irresistible to women. »

Matt Berry: 'Most of what I do is inspired by things that frightened me'

The star of Toast of London and king of the 'part bounty hunter, part 70s porn star' voiceover reveals why he never takes a holiday

• Listen to John Plunkett's interview with the Toast star

Matt Berry never wanted to be a comedian. The star of Channel 4's absurdist sitcom Toast of London, and a familiar face to fans of The It Crowd and The Mighty Boosh, says he "got into this by the back door".

He was working in the London Dungeon, sending tourists to the gallows every five minutes for being German, when he got the call to be in the Channel 4 comedy, Garth Marenghi's Darkplace. A keen musician, he knew its creators Matthew Holness and Richard Ayoade from Mighty Boosh gigs where Berry was a warm-up act.

"I didn't have any plan to go into comedy," says Berry. "We became sort of mates and Matt said, »

Europa League Football: Tottenham Hotspur v Benfica

7.45pm, ITV

A proper, old-order European tie as Tottenham, twice winners of the old Uefa Cup, take on Portuguese giants Benfica. Spurs have glided into the final 16 of this competition without ever looking impressive, but in Christian Eriksen, Andros Townsend and a resurgent Emmanuel Adebayor, boast enough attacking talent to concern any backline. Benfica will be looking to maintain the form that has seen them dominate the Portuguese Primera Liga this season. Gwilym Mumford
