StreamFix: Must-watch 'Daily Show' correspondent movies on Netflix now

30 March 2015 5:18 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Thanks to the news of Trevor Noah taking over Jon Stewart's "Daily Show" desk, we remembered something: Wow, "Daily Show" alums have basically taken over the world. If they're not landing primetime sitcom gigs, they're scoring Oscar nominations and populating romcoms. To celebrate Noah's new post, let's take a look at five Netflix picks starring the friends, colleagues, and cronies of Jon Stewart. Watch 'em now.  "Trevor Noah: African American" If you haven't been introduced to your new "Daily Show" host's brand of observational humor yet, check out his comedy special where he discusses his home country of South Africa and why racial relations there, even during the age of apartheid, are/were less complicated than in the U.S. His bit about Oprah Winfrey's leadership academy is particularly inspired. And a little unsettling! "Bruce Almighty" Oscar nominee Steve Carell wasn't always scarring you with his fake "Foxcatcher" nose and deathly "Foxcatcher" stare. »

Exclusive: Blake Lively is radiant in final 'Age of Adaline' poster

26 March 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

April is just around the corner and that means there are a bunch of highly anticipated movies on deck.  "Fast 7," "Ex Machina" and, of course, "Avengers: Age of Ultron."  One film that you should really pay attention to, however, is "The Age of Adaline." Directed by Lee Toland Krieger ("Celeste and Jesse Forever"), "Adaline" is an original story about a woman (Blake Lively) who magically or accidentally stops aging after a major car accident.  As the years pass she sees her friends and family get old and die as she continues to somehow enjoy immorality.  Can she truly continue "living" this way? The movie's trailer does a superb job of teasing how the film recreates a 100 years of our heroine's life thanks to some amazing costumes by Oscar winner Angus Straithe ("Moulin Rouge!"), a beautiful score by composer Rob Simonsen ("Foxcatcher," "The Spectacular Now") and some impressive cinematography by relative newcomer David Lanzenberg. »

Robocop and Gambit writer to pen Boston Marathon film

25 March 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that RoboCop writer Joshua Zetumer has been hired to write the new film that will chronicle the aftermath of the bombing at the Boston Marathon 2013.

Adapting the non-fiction book by Casey Sherman and Dave Wedge called Boston Strong, the new film has been in pre-production since last November, with Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) set to direct. Zetumer will rewrite an existing draft from screenwriters Eric Johnson and Paul Tamasy (The Fighter), and was picked by the studio as he has most recently been working with them on the script for Gambit, the spin-off X-Men movie starring Channing Tatum (Foxcatcher).

The story is primarily based around the hunt for the bombers, which culminated in a chase around Boston which left a MIT policeman dead, as well as one of the bombers, Tamerlan Tsarnaev. The second bomber,

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, is currently undergoing his trial for the bombings »

'The Office' 10 Years Later: Why Michael Scott is One of the Most Original Characters of All Time

Jason Momoa, Keanu Reeves And Jim Carrey Join Texan Cannibal Love Story The Bad Batch

20 March 2015 5:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Clear your schedules, because the most interesting film to head our way in 2016 just got more interesting. Sure, we’re all on the edge of our seats, wanting to see the next huge offerings from the DC and Marvel stables – but what if there was something happening that was so original, so exciting and so promising, that it actually presented itself as a viable alternative to all that comic book fare? Well, here it is: The Bad Batch.

Last year, Ana Lily Amirpour was the talk of the festival circuit, with her feature film debut A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night. The award-winning Iranian vampire film set tongues wagging at Sundance and, very quickly, the British-born Iranian-American writer-director was defying the Hollywood odds and lining up her next high profile project – a feat that is sadly still a rarity for directors that are also female.

Most recently, Amirpour described »

Don’t you forget about Molly Ringwald. Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t!

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of John Hughes’ 1985 classic, The Breakfast Club, stars Ringwald and Ally Sheedy attended a special screening at SXSW (a digitally remastered version of the film will also be released in select theaters from March 26-31). Which seems like the perfect opportunity to find out what our favorite detention-goers look like three decades later:

Chicago's Second City comedy group has long been an incubator for young comedians. Many famous funny people have come up through its ranks, including Tina Fey, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jane Lynch and the now-Oscar-nominated actor Steve Carell.

The clip is from Second City's 1994 revue, Are You Now or Have You Ever Been Mellow, and features the shirtless star donning a flowing blond wig.

Unfinished Business bombs at the box office, lowest opening of Vince Vaughn’s career

9 March 2015 5:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Unfinished Business, the latest gross-out comedy from Vince Vaughn, was not press screened for critics in fear that poor reviews would deter people from going to see it. Well, it looks like that didn’t matter all that much.

The movie only managed to pull in a pathetic $4.8 million domestically, and an even worse $2.6 million overseas. With a budget of around $35 million, this is only disappointing news for 20th Century Fox.

This is now the lowest opening of a Vince Vaughn-led comedy movie and yet another disappointing box office performance from the actor following Delivery Man and The Watch. The Internship, with co-star Owen Wilson, did marginally better with $17.3 million, but its far removed from the likes of Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story ($30 million), Wedding Crashers ($33.9 million), Couples Retreat ($34.2 million) and The Break-Up ($39.1 million).

Many are speculating that Unfinished Business could spell the end for Vince Vaughn-led comedies, »

Unfinished Business movie review: business trip-up

6 March 2015 2:24 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Apparently made by snickering 12-year-olds who like naked boobies and have heard rumors about the phenomenon known as “the business trip.” I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): the trailer was embarrassing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Unfinished Business is the kind of movie in which a mentally retarded character — whose impairment is offered as a constant source of “hilarity” — is required to recite a line of dialogue such as “The penis touched my face” in a way that, this pathetic excuse for entertainment hopes, will make you laugh. Because the penis did indeed touch his face, and you are, it is presumed, consumed with “American prudishness,” hence you will snicker, just like, in another scene, the retarded character snickers when he sees naked boobies. In a fit of something that the movie deems clever, the naked-boobies scene directly addresses the matter »

2015 MTV Movie Award nominations are more respectable than usual

5 March 2015 10:46 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Yesterday, the MTV Movie Award nominations were announced for 2015. Normally, that’s not the sort of thing that I care even a little bit about, but lo and behold…the films and performances cited happen to be far more respectable than normal. The nominations were led by The Fault in Our Stars, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Neighbors, which each came away with 7 citations. There also happened to be multiple nominations scored for Boyhood, Gone Girl, Selma, and Whiplash, among others. This will never become any kind of noteworthy precursor, for sure (especially when it happens after the Oscars are already held), but hey…a step in the right direction is a step in the right direction. Let me be perfectly clear, there are still plenty of terrible choices here, but the overall list is far better than you’d ever expect it to be. In fact, aside from an »

Unfinished Business review: True Detective can't arrive fast enough for Vince Vaughn

5 March 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Ken Scott; Screenwriter: Steve Conrad; Starring: Vince Vaughn, Dave Franco, Tom Wilkinson, Sienna Miller, June Diane Raphael, Nick Frost, James Marsden; Running time: 91 mins; Certificate: 15

Vince Vaughn's desperate need for a career recharge hits a critical point with his latest comedy Unfinished Business, a story of three down-and-out salesmen who form their own company and head to Europe in a bid to close a deal ahead of a competitor.

The film aims to harness the spirit of Vaughn's best comedies from a decade ago,Old School and Dodgeball (a Vaughn-led band of misfits triumph over adversity), but this is a mere shadow of those films, painfully lacking in laughs or any characters that leave a lasting impression. The True Detective-inspired Vaughnaissance can't get here fast enough.

Lending support are Tom Wilkinson as a divorced sixtysomething desperate to get his mojo back and Dave Franco as a dimwitted ex-Foot Locker employee whose name, »

MTV Movie Awards announced; are more in touch than the Oscars

4 March 2015 2:55 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Are you still rubbed the wrong way by the winners of this year’s Oscars? Wish that if they have 10 nominations, they should realistically use them to nominate cool movies everyone has seen like Guardians of the Galaxy and The Fault in Our Stars, and if you’re not going to, why not just go back to 5?

That’s what the MTV Movie Awards are for, and surprisingly, they’ve made some choices that are making them look even more diverse and in touch with society than the Academy.

The movie of the year nominations are a healthy mix of blockbusters and critical darlings, with Oscar winner Birdman nowhere to be found (except for Best Female Performance by Emma Stone and Best Fight, between Michael Keaton and Edward Norton).

But even some of these fluffy, fun categories saw fit to nominate David Oyelowo, Chris Rock, Kevin Hart (okay, pretty sure »
