Dispatch from the La Film Fest 2015: ‘Puerto Ricans in Paris’

17 June 2015 6:44 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

A particularly hard type of film about which to write critically is the comedy of modest ambition that achieves its aim with an acceptable amount of appeal in playing, gags, plot, and outlook, but little more. One does not wish to criticize for not being more (not least as so many are so less), nor to overpraise its slight achievements, leaving one mostly in the territory of reportage, rather than critical appraisal. Which is a way of saying that such a film is Puerto Ricans in Paris, a perfectly inoffensive, oftentimes smile-raising fish-out-of-water/culture-clash comedy that does what it aims to do pretty much without fault.

The Puerto Ricans in question are Luis (Luis Guzmán) and Eddie (Edgar Garcia, like Guzmán, a regular on director Ian Edelman’s HBO series “How To Make It In America), and they play well together – Guzmán furrows his brow a lot, and Garcia is like a nice, »

Review: HBO's 'Ballers' Starring Dwayne Johnson

16 June 2015 12:02 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Producers Stephen Levinson, Mark Wahlberg and Rob Weiss have hit upon an HBO formula that works: pick a high-powered industry, and then track a group of attractive people as they try to navigate through that world. "Entourage" has been their biggest success so far, though the recent big screen flop is an indication that their lightweight modus operandi doesn't have much in the way of substance or longevity. The fashion world set "How To Make It In America" was dropped after two seasons, which is a shame as the show included complex relationships and real struggle for its characters, though it was decidedly lacking with respect to the hot bods, hot cars and celebrity cameos common to "Entourage." It's those qualities that Levinson, Wahlberg, and Weiss return to in quantity with "Ballers," which is essentially "Entourage" in the world of sports, and this is surely no coincidence. There's at least one key difference that makes. »

Jill Soloway & Jennie Snyder Urman On Social Media, Binging and Caitlyn Jenner

12 June 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

They may be two of this season’s “It” showrunners, but Jill Soloway and Jennie Snyder Urman aren’t exactly overnight successes. They’ve both paid their dues with staff jobs (Soloway on “Six Feet Under,” Urman on “Gilmore Girls”) and showrunner gigs (Soloway on HBO’s “How to Make It in America,” Urman on the CW’s “Emily Owens, M.D.”). Soloway’s “Transparent” has put Amazon originals on the map, winning Golden Globes for best comedy and lead Jeffrey Tambor, while Urman’s “Jane the Virgin” earned CW its first Globe noms, and scored a win for breakout star Gina Rodriguez. In a wide-ranging conversation with Variety they discuss the challenges of binge-viewing vs. 22-episode seasons, blending comedy with drama, and Caitlyn Jenner.

When did you realize your show might work?

Urman: Right before the TCAs when all the critics watched it, before it started airing. I read those pre-reviews — “Oh my gosh, »

A Timeline of How We Got to the Entourage Movie

2 June 2015 9:13 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As it turns out, the ghastly ghoulies in the recent Poltergeist remake aren't the most terrifying things to come out of the TV and invade multiplexes this summer. That dubious honor goes to Entourage, the big-screen spinoff of HBO's most successful alpha-male bro-comedy (sorry, How to Make It in America), which arrives in theaters this Friday. It's been four years since Vince, Drama, Turtle, and E (don't forget E!) literally flew off into the premium-cable sunset, so the arrival of Entourage provokes almost as many questions as the final scene of The Sopranos did: Will Turtle become a successful restaurateur? Did Vince actually get married? Will He Make The Movie? Does Ari Gold still treat Lloyd like shit? Will Bobby Flay walk the Entourage red carpet? (Is Bobby still such a weird kisser?) Does Ari's wife actually have a first name? And again, Will Vinny Make The Movie Or Not? »

Wayward Pines Review – TV Fox

28 April 2015 12:53 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The best thing about Wayward Pines, the new, short-run effort coming to Fox, is watching how it attempts to learn from the mistakes of similar shows that have come before.

From the less-than-stellar “remake” of The Prisoner with Jim Caviezel and Ian McKellen, to the largely goofball Persons Unknown (which was, sort of, The Prisoner 2: The Group), and everything else in the “trapped in a town” genre, the story can’t work if the characters are empty plot devices.

Wayward Pines is a rare example of setting out with the tropes and traps of a genre in order to dodge the pitfalls inherent in telling a type of story that can never fully distance itself from the fact that it’s pretty goofy. The problem is that while the show clearly tries to look at what made other efforts fall apart, and do those things differently, it isn’t »
