‘The Vietnam War’ Filmmaker on the Horrifying Execution Footage That’s ‘Unbearable to Look At’

23 September 2017 6:25 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: The following contains an image of graphic violence below, a photo taken during the war that is being discussed in context with the documentary and the Tet Offensive.]

At the halfway point of Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s “The Vietnam War,” the documentary series reaches the Tết Offensive, one of the biggest military offensives by the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong that turned the tide of the war, even though it was deemed a failure. Episode 6, titled “Things Fall Apart” is one of the most relentless and graphically violent installments of the series so far, but is absolutely essential viewing to understanding how both the Vietnamese and Americans viewed the war going forward.

One of the biggest contributors to the American perception of the war occurred early on during the Tết Offensive, on its second day.

Doctor Comedy Being Developed at NBC, Sugar Lyn Beard to Star

22 September 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Beard: ScreenSlam/YouTube

Sugar Lyn Beard is stepping into scrubs. The “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates” actress is set to star in a new comedy series about a female doctor that’s being developed by NBC, Deadline reports. The project hails from Beard, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (“Preacher,” “This Is the End”), and Sony Pictures TV.

The untitled half-hour show follows Dr. Olivia Boudreau (Beard). Described as a “35-year-old hard-charging Doogie Howser-style prodigy,” Olivia’s life gets turned upside down when “she has a complete breakdown in the operating room and loses her medical license,” the source summarizes. She resorts to moving in with her “estranged hippy mom and her mom’s two best friends, who team up to help get her back on her feet, while teaching her all the life lessons she missed by going to med school.”

Beard, whose acting credits include “Sausage Party,” “50/50,” and “Weeds,” penned the script alongside Guy Endore-Kaiser (“Comedy Central Roast of James Franco”). Both will serve as executive producers.

CBS also has a woman-penned comedy about a female doctor in the works: Lisa Parsons’ “Love/Sick,” which is based on the South Korean series “Emergency Couple.”

Viewers will be saying goodbye to Dr. Mindy Lahiri, TV’s most beloved gynecologist, later this year. The sixth and final season of Mindy Kaling’s “The Mindy Project” debuted on Hulu earlier this month.

Doctor Comedy Being Developed at NBC, Sugar Lyn Beard to Star was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Giveaway – Win a Goon: Last of the Enforcers T-shirt

2 September 2017 10:50 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To celebrate the release of Goon: Last Of The Enforcers, in UK cinemas 8th September, we have an official t-shirt available to giveaway courtesy of Vertigo Releasing.

This star-studded, pumped up sequel to the smash hit comedy Goon is a foul-mouthed, action-packed and hilarious excursion into the wild, knock-em-out world of ice hockey that sees the original cast returning for more bone- cracking and rib-tickling mayhem.

American Pie’s legendary Stifler, Seann William Scott, is simply sensational – putting as much humour as he does pathos – as the don’t give a puck hockey star Doug Glatt (based on the life of American maverick Doug Smith) – a role he was born to play, at least twice. He’s supported here with a top drawer cast including Liev Schreiber (Ray Donovan, Spotlight) and Alison Pill (Midnight In Paris, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), reprising their roles from the first film, Elisha Cuthbert »

Cancelled Justice League Mortal film would have featured a fight between Wonder Woman and Superman

31 August 2017 7:09 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Remember that Justice League movie that was announced way way back in 2007 with George Miller (Mad Max: Fury Road) at the helm? It was the film that had everyone confused at the time: would Christian Bale be Batman? Wait, it’s another Batman? Who is this Armie Hammer fellow (this was before he blew everyone away in The Social Network, of course)? The Dark Knight Trilogy was not yet done, but Warner Bros. was going all in on Justice League Mortal.

The movie was even 100% cast: The film had DJ. Cotrona as Superman, Armie Hammer as Batman, Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, Common as Green Lantern, Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman, Adam Brody as The Flash, and finally Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter.

Actor Jay Baruchel (This is the End, How to Train Your Dragon) was set to play villain Maxwell Lord in the film, and speaking with MTV’s Happy Sad Confused, »

18 August 2017 2:55 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Seth Rogen may not have starred on Jersey Shore, but he sure did inspire the Seaside Heights gang!

The 35-year-old Canadian actor had some fun tweeting out facts about Superbad on Thursday to celebrate the beloved comedy's 10th anniversary, and there was one in particular that caught fans' attention.

Watch: 'Jersey Shore' Stars Jam Out to Show's Old Theme Song!

Buried deep down on his list of factoids was this key piece of (Nsfw) knowledge: "The cast of Jersey Shore confirmed to me that the phrase "D.T.F" or "Down To F**k" is from Superbad."

We were hoping we had somehow forgotten that "Gtl" had originated with Jonah Hill and Michael Cera, but here we are. 

The Neighbors 2 star provided many more tidbits, including where you can spot Danny McBride and who inspired some of the movie's raunchiest jokes:

8 August 2017 1:00 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

New sci-fi horror comedy Ghosted will be in part an homage to the buddy comedies of the 80s, writer and Ep Kevin Etten said during a panel at Fox’s TCA. “It’s things like Lethal Weapon, Beverly Hills Cop,” Etten said. “Then we were influenced by recent movies like This is the End. We thought we'd do a true action sci-fi buddy-based relationship comedy.” Ep Adam Scott plays the central role of Max, a conspiracy theory-obsessed university professor who joins forces with… »

‘Goon’ sequel finally pucks it into UK cinemas!

31 July 2017 5:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Seann William Scott returns in Goon: Last of the Enforcers the cartilage crunching sequel to the 2011 hockey comedy Goon, a follow-up that’s even “faster, funnier and more foul-mouthed than the original.”

Back as  hockey star Doug Glatt, Scott is supported here with cast that includes Liev Schreiber (Spotlight) and Alison Pill (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), reprising their roles from the first film, Elisha Cuthbert (24) and Callum Keith Rennie (Californication), with 22 Jump Street’s Wyatt Russell as Glatt’s nemesis, and Deadpool’s T. J. Miller on scene-stealing form as inappropriate sports commentator Chad Bailey.

From the press release:

An assured feature directing debut from comedy star Jay Baruchel (This Is The End, Knocked Up, How To Train Your Dragon), this is a film you can’t help but love – crass but charming, packed with eccentric and loveable characters, and just the right balance of sports carnage and comedy »

The Big Sick movie review: girlfriend in a coma, the rom-com

28 July 2017 7:23 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take… A rom-com for people who hate rom-coms. A painfully funny movie, full of enrapturing emotion that captures the glorious contradictions of all kinds of love. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): not a fan of romantic comedies

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

How many ways can a movie be spoiled by its own mere existence so that it’s ruined before you even see it? We now know that it’s more than the many ways in which The Big Sick spoils itself, because its multiply-foregone conclusion does not hinder its amusements, lessen its drama, or take away from its big, big, all-enrapturing emotion. It’s kind of amazing.

The Big Sick is the basically-true, just-a-little-bit-fictionalized story of the relationship between actor and comedian Kumail Nanjiani (Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, Goosebumps) and writer and producer Emily V. Gordon, »
