'Fist Fight' Review: Ice Cube Comedy Is One Big Swing and a Miss

17 February 2017 10:47 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Charlie Day owns one of the highest-pitched male squeaks in the business and he puts it to hilarious use on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. I could watch him in anything – but Fist Fight is pushing it, given that's it's always raining a storm of comic clichés that quickly drowns any semblance of audience goodwill.

Day plays Mr. Campbell, a dweeb English teacher at Atlanta's Roosevelt High where it's senior prank day and our man is getting rattled. Forget the meth-drugged horse running through the halls or the dick images »

Bryan Cranston Says It would Be Fun to Return as Walter White on "Better Call Saul"

17 February 2017 5:33 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

While Bryan Cranston had a very long “journeyman” career as an actor before Breaking Bad, it was the role of Walter White that turned him into a bonafide super star.  And it’s not like Breaking Bad was a one hit wonder for his talents.  Cranston has taken the big screen by storm and is regarded as one of the finest actors out there.  He also has not forgotten about Walter White or the success it has given him. Cranston’s done a couple of Walter White appearances since Breaking Bad has ended, namely on SNL.  However, in a recent interview Cranston

Bryan Cranston Says He’d Reprise His Breaking Bad Role “In A Second”

16 February 2017 6:54 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Breaking Bad may have ended several years ago, but the near masterpiece still lives on through spinoff Better Call Saul. While it hasn’t quite reached the same highs as Walter White’s explosive adventure did at its peak, it’s still a wholly enjoyable show that fans seem to appreciate. Not to mention that it continuously displays improvement. However, even though it’s set to enter its third season later this year, there’ve still been no signs of a cameo from the aforementioned drug kingpin or his partner in crime, Jesse Pinkman.

That’s not terribly surprising, given that it wouldn’t be that easy to include them here as Better Call Saul is a prequel, but there’s no reason the characters couldn’t make a quick appearance that feels organic and wouldn’t be a detriment to the story. Such a thing hasn’t happened yet »

Film Review: ‘Fist Fight’

16 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s the last day of school at Roosevelt High, and two disgruntled teachers decide to duke it out after the final bell rings in “Fist Fight,” a risible excuse for comedy that treats compulsory education as a joke and violence as a reasonable way to solve problems. In other words, it’s a film perfectly calibrated for the times in which we live, and by far the most disheartening studio-produced movie in recent memory, setting an abysmal example for anyone who goes to school (or the movies, for that matter) still hoping to learn.

Listen carefully, and you can practically hear your brain cells dying during the course of “Fist Fight,” whose principal agenda seems to be how outrageously out-of-control things get at Roosevelt. Anarchy already has the upper hand when idealistic English teacher Andy Campbell (Charlie Day) arrives on campus to discover what the students have perpetrated on »

Video Essay Makes the Case for Black-and-White Film Noir’s Influence on ‘Breaking Bad’ — Watch

15 February 2017 11:31 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“Have you ever heard somebody say, ‘I can’t watch black-and-white movies?'” asks the creator of the Now You See It YouTube channel in his latest video. Said video essayist takes issue with that mindset, and he’s here to explain why in just four minutes. “Black and white can do just as much as color,” he contends, and for Exhibit A he turns to film noir.

Our intrepid host uses examples of both good and bad parodies to make a point: “Saturday Night Live” got it wrong by using low-contrast black and white in a recent skit inspired by “Casablanca,” while an old “Calvin and Hobbes” comic strip mimicked the style much more skillfully. The poor imitation demonstrated by the likes of “SNL,” he argues, is why some consider black and white to be boring — they »

Disney Selects Niki Caro To Direct And Bill Kong To Produce The Live Action Adaptation Of Mulan

15 February 2017 5:11 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

With Beauty and the Beast on track to be a huge box office hit, it's no surprise that Disney is continuing at full speed with adaptations of their animated classics. The studio's remake of Mulan is next on the list, and Niki Caro has now been confirmed to helm the movie.  According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio made an effort to find an Asian director (consulting Ang Lee and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story star Jiang Wen, who both had to pass) before settling on Caro. Disney also considered Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins, and Michelle MacLaren (Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones.) Caro being hired to direct the film will most likely nix her chances of directing Marvel Studios' Captain Marvel film, for which she was reportedly in the running.  In addition to Caro, the studio has also hired Hong-Kong based producer Bill Kong to oversee the film. »

Niki Caro tapped to direct Disney’s live-action Mulan

14 February 2017 2:50 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

One of many upcoming live-action Disney remakes has just found its director, as The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Niki Caro will helm 2018’s Mulan. In so doing, Caro will make history, becoming only the second woman in the studio’s history (and third in all) to direct a film with a budget over $100 million.

Reportedly, Disney saw it as important to hire a female for the job and looked at such other candidates as Patty Jenkins (Wonder Woman) and Michelle MacLaren (Breaking Bad). Caro’s hiring likely means that she’s out of the running for another major studio tentpole, Captain Marvel, which will be the first female-led superhero movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Caro’s name was previously on a shortlist alongside Lesli Linka Glatter (Homeland) and Lorene Scafaria (Seeking a Friend for the End of the World).

Disney has finally found a director for its highly-anticipated Mulan remake, with New Zealand filmmaker Niki Caro signing on to take the helm. This news comes just a few months after Ang Lee passed on the project back in October. But now the project is back on the right track. This hiring also makes Niki Caro the second female director at the studio to be at the helm for a project budgeted at over $100 million, following in the footsteps of Ava DuVernay and her film A Wrinkle In Time. Along with adding Niki Caro, the Mulan remake has brought on veteran Chinese producer William Hong as an executive producer.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Disney was considering other female filmmakers such as Wonder Woman's Patty Jenkins and celebrated TV director Michelle MacLaren (Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead). With Niki Caro taking the reins on this project, »
