‘Dope’ Is A Fresh 90′s Inspired Coming Of Age Adventure: ‘Superbad’ Meets ‘Go’ [Sundance Review]

25 January 2015 10:19 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Four days in, Rick Famuyiwa‘s Dope is the best film I’ve seen so far at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. A coming of age story for the “post hip hop generation” best described as a mix of three films: Doug Liman’s Go, Greg Mottola’s Superbad and John Singleton’s Boyz n the Hood.  I’m posting this review […]

Sundance 2015: Jack Black's 'The D-Train' is the Ultimate Bromance

24 January 2015 7:36 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Over the past decade, we've seen the rise of the bromance, mostly popularized by Seth Rogen and James Franco with films like Pineapple Express and The Interview, or even Jonah Hill with Michael Cera and Channing Tatum in Superbad and 21 Jump Street repectively. But the new indie The D-Train starring Jack Black and James Marsden takes the bromantic comedy to a whole new level, and it makes for an absolutely hilarious and wild ride. If you want to keep aspects of this comedy in the dark (which I recommend), then stop reading after the fourth paragraph and then just come back for the final paragraph. Dan Landsman (Black) is one of those guys who just tries too hard, and it really gets on the nerves of most people, especially those on the high school alumni committee who are having trouble rounding up people to attend the 20-year reunion. Dan keeps giving himself nicknames like D-Fresh, »

Emma Stone Discusses Her Relationship With Sony And Amy Pascal

16 January 2015 7:18 AM, PST | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Emma Stone doesn’t appear to have beef with Sony following the cyber-attacks on the film studio that has revealed hundreds of personal documents and emails exchanged between its top executives. Stone, who has worked with Sony on more than half a dozen films that include, says that the studio has always been good to the award winning actress. “I did Superbad when I was 17. I remember going to Matt Tolmach’s office when he was a studio executive and I met him when Judd (Apatow) wanted to cast me,” Stone told Deadline. “Then several years later, Tolmach was the producer on Amazing Spider-Man and was no longer working with the  [ Read More ]

Judd Apatow: Bill Cosby Should 'Absolutely' Be in Jail

13 January 2015 3:57 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Judd Apatow continued to vocalize his disapproval of Bill Cosby -- who has numerous sexual assault allegations against him -- in a conversation on Marc Maron's Wtf podcast. Just like his Twitter rants, the Superbad producer doesn't hold back when getting into what he thinks The Cosby Show star deserves.

"I absolutely would like to see him in jail," he told Maron. "That’s where people who commit sexual assaults go."

News: Bill Cosby's Accusers -- A Timeline of Alleged Sexual Assault Claims

Cosby has never been criminally charged for any of these allegations and has universally denied all claims.

Apatow admitted that one reason he's calling out the sexual assault claims against the comedian so often is because he thinks not enough celebrities are doing so in Hollywood. "If everybody was talking about it, I probably wouldn't have much to say about it," he said. "But I don’t want it to suddenly disappear »

Check Out A Page From Judd Apatow's 'Simpsons' Script, Episode Airs This Weekend

7 January 2015 6:01 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Judd Apatow, the reigning bro-man-king of Hollywood comedy, has ushered in a wave of some of our most gifted and ubiquitous comic actors. He’s arguably made careers for the likes of Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill and Lena Dunham, but once upon a time, Judd was just like you and me. Okay, not really, but the comedic poet of male regression behind “Knocked Up,” “Superbad,” “Girls” and more was once a young and hungry screenwriter who churned out specs in hopes of breaking into television. One of the shows young Apatow aspired to write for was “The Simpsons," not surprisingly, and now two decades later, Fox has announced their plans to air Apatow’s once-rejected 'Simpsons' script from 1990. Actually, this is not Apatow’s first contribution to the world of “The Simpsons”: he just recently played a smarmy version of himself on the show (alongside frequent collaborators Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd) and, »

Box Office Democracy: “The Interview”

1 January 2015 9:23 PM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

The Interview is a movie doomed to collapse under the weight of all the external nonsense forced upon it. It is not a movie worth being called an act of war. It is not a movie worthy of being the standard bearer for free speech against real or imagined tyranny. It’s not a movie worth the total public embarrassment of Sony Pictures. It’s just a stupid comedy. I don’t even mean “stupid” pejoratively here, it is in the same grand tradition of stupid comedies that has brought us movies like There’s Something About Mary and Caddyshack. Both movies I like a great deal, neither of them worth an international incident.

When it’s on, The Interview is quite funny. The bit with Eminem that I saw all over Facebook this weekend is my favorite so it’s a shame that that’s in the first ten minutes of the film. »
