Project Almanac movie review: temporal d’oh!

15 hours ago | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

There are things in which horny teenaged boys were not meant to meddle. Like we needed the warning. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m a big science fiction geek

I’m “biast” (con): so tired of found footage

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

Of all the great time-travel paradoxes, perhaps the most mysterious is this one: Those who dare to tamper with temporal physics never seem to heed the warnings of every piece of time-travel fiction ever, to just not try it, because really bad things will happen for sure. We know for certain that the three high-school guys who are goofing around with time are aware of the potential problems, because Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Doctor Who, Back to the Future, and the Terminator franchise all get a name- or visual-check here. But they forge ahead anyway, and it all goes wrong. »

Seth MacFarlane sued over Ted talking bottle opener

20 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ted creator Seth MacFarlane is being sued over film merchandise

Michael Cram, the inventor of a talking bottle opener, claims that the movie's promotional products - specifically the talking Ted bottle opener - infringe his copyright.

Cram, who has merchandise partnerships with the likes of Nascar and the NFL, claims that he created the no-button bottle opener and the talking beer mug.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, he claims that MacFarlane stole his idea for a talking bottle opener, which was sold along with special edition Ted DVDs.

Cram has a licensing deal with MacFarlane's Family Guy and therefore claims that the film's creator is well aware of the product being his intellectual property.

Ted 2 is being released on June 26.

Mark Wahlberg returns as John Bennett in the film, while MacFarlane voices Ted and performs motion capture for the character.

Seth MacFarlane Sued Over 'Ted' Bottle Openers ... We're Bear-y Mad

26 February 2015 11:40 AM, PST | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Seth MacFarlane screwed a talking bottle opener company by hawking a rip-off version to promote "Ted" ... this according to the inventor of the talking bottle opener -- and to make things right, he's looking for lots of dough. The creator says he's been selling talking bottle openers for years -- over 10 million units worldwide to date -- and licensed the concept to several companies ... including Twentieth Century Fox, who made "Family Guy" talking openers in »

Seth MacFarlane Sued Over 'Ted' Talking Bottle Opener

26 February 2015 7:12 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Outlandish films breed silly merchandise triggering oddball lawsuits like one filed on Wednesday over the special-edition Blu-ray/DVD of Seth MacFarlane’s talking bear romp Ted, which is said to come with a talking bottle opener. In California federal court, Michael Cram claims ownership of “talking” bottle openers and “talking” beer mugs, which he says have been uber-successful in the marketplace. Doing business as Pacific Productions, Cram says he has licensing deals with more than 61 Ncaa schools, Major League Baseball, Nascar, the National Football League, and movie and television studios. What’s more, Cram says he and his product

Recap of 'Pretty Little Liars' Season 5 Episode 21: Bloody Hell

24 February 2015 1:47 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There are only a few weeks left until "Pretty Little Liars" finally reveals who A is! You know, for the millionth time. But now that Alison Dilaurentis has been cleared in the A-game, the list of suspects is growing at an exponential rate. At this point, anyone could be the "Pll" puppet master, but one thing's for sure: tensions are rising in Rosewood. And we're not just talking about the sexual tension between Spencer Hastings and literally every man on this show who isn't Toby Cavanaugh. Sigh, their vague breakup is still so raw. *crying*

The Liars Join Team Ali, Aria Looks Out For Mike

Last week the little liars learned that Alison definitely didn't kill Mona Vanderwaal because whoops, she faked her own death only to be murdered. Hate it when that happens. Obviously, this whole situation is super awkward for the liars, and their new mission is to get Ali out of jail. »

Second Opinion – Project Almanac (2015)

21 February 2015 9:31 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Project Almanac, 2015

Directed by Dean Israelite

Starring  Jonny Weston, Sofia Black-d’Elia, Sam LernerAllen Evangelista, Virginia Gardner and Amy Landecker

Synopsis:

A found-footage teen-flick, whereby our college-applying scientists find a clock-rewinding contraption in the basement…

Creating a time travel movie that doesn’t have any leaky gaps in its plot is a very tricky thing to pull off. Similarly creating a found-footage movie that doesn’t feel contrived or forced is also very difficult to get right. Combine the two together and Dean Israelite really had a hard task on his hands to make this found footage time travel movie make sense while never feeling too gimmicky. And to his credit, he mostly succeeds. But some sloppy writing choices and half baked ideas really hold back Project Almanac from what could have been a great sci-fi movie.

Firstly, you need to have your time travel rules written down so »

What You Can Learn From New Streaming Service Shout! Factory TV

20 February 2015 3:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Streaming video is a godsend if you want to catch up with recent seasons of TV series. But what's a TV fan to do who wants to stream older shows? Netflix has very little from before the millennium, and Amazon Prime has very little from before 1990.

That's not a knock; the big streaming services know their market. Still, it's worth remembering that Amazon's initial appeal as a bookseller was it's long-tail catalog, the notion that comprehensiveness was worthwhile because somebody somewhere would want that obscure or ancient title, that the markets for all those titles were collectively significant and worth catering to, and that the Internet had at last made it easier to connect those customers with what they wanted.

But until the big streaming services step into the long-tail breach, Shout Factory TV (at shoutfactorytv.com) is ready to make a home there. The boutique streaming service, which is free and requires no subscription, »

Project Almanac review: Michael Bay blends Chronicle and Back to the Future

18 February 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Dean Israelite; Screenwriter: Jason Pagan, Andrew Deutschman; Starring: Jonny Weston, Sofia Black-d'Elia, Sam Lerner, Allen Evangelista, Virginia Gardner; Running time: 106 mins; Certificate: 12A

Imagine Back to the Future meets Chronicle seen through the eyes of Michael Bay and you've pretty much landed on the latest offering from the found footage factory, Project Almanac.

Bay produces this movie through his Platinum Dunes production company and, though first-time director Dean Israelite initially has fun with Project Almanac's nifty premise, the film's inevitable descent into 'Bayhem' prevents it from being anything other than fast-forgotten entertainment.

Jonny Weston leads the cast as David, a geeky high-schooler who discovers time machine blueprints left by his late father. With his pals Quinn (Sam Lerner), Allen (Adam Le), sister Christina (Virginia Gardner) and school crush Jessie (Sofia Black-d'Elia), they construct the device and start pinballing across the space-time continuum.

Pretty Little Liars Recap: The Liars Spy on Mike as 'A' Prepares to Plant Fake Evidence

10 February 2015 7:30 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

There was plenty of blood, sweat and tears on Pretty Little Liars this week as Rosewood's leading ladies tailed their No. 1 "A" suspect and faced big decisions about college and boys. (You know, the type of things high schoolers who aren't being viciously blackmailed and physically assaulted 24/7 deal with.) But that doesn't mean the show's central mystery fell by the wayside. The girls got leads on the shenanigans Alison (Sasha Pieterse) was trying to pull from behind bars. Here's what you missed Tuesday:Biggest Moments • The girls all went to a church blood drive where Mike (Cody Christian) was reprimanded for acting sketchy around the vials. »

Recap of Pretty Little Liars Season 5 Episode 19: There Will Be Blood

10 February 2015 1:40 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

We know this is mind-blowing information, but the characters in "Pretty Little Liars'" actually have lives beyond hanging out with their omnipresent sociopath stalker. Yep, Spencer Hastings, Aria Montgomery, Hanna Marin and Emily Fields are in their senior year of High School -- which means college is just around the corner. Of course, it's slightly difficult to get excited about school when you're being harassed on a daily basis, which brings us to this week's recap, in which the little liars juggle college, family, their favorite deranged psycho, and their fleet of significant others -- one of whom used to stalk them (cough, Ezra, cough).

Mike Is More Evil Than Ever (Might Be A Vampire), Aria Makes A New Friend Good news everyone: Rosewood is holding a blood drive, which is obviously a great opportunity for A to steal the liars' bodily fluids and plant them all over town. »

Trailer for Playing It Cool starring Chris Evans, Aubrey Plaza and Anthony Mackie

6 February 2015 7:09 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With an all-star cast that includes Chris Evans (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Michelle Monaghan (Due Date) and Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation), Playing It Cool is an offbeat romantic comedy from debut feature director Justin Reardon and is described as Swingers meets 500 Days of Summer.

Check out the trailer below:

Playing it Cool is this generation’s ‘Swingers’ meets ‘500 Days of Summer’, a fresh and quirky story of a slight pretentious man, our ‘narrator’ (Evans), who falls for an unlikely girl, ‘her’ (Monaghan), and will stop at nothing to get her even after realizing she is already in a relationship. Like a young ‘Walter Mitty’, it tells the story of a quarter-life crisis amidst figuring out who you are and what your destiny holds. 

Playing it Cool is available on VOD on March 1st 2015 and also features in the cast Anthony Mackie (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), Topher Grace (Spider-Man 3 »

Jupiter Ascending's Mila Kunis talks Wachowskis, pizza, and Channing Tatum

4 February 2015 7:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

It’s easy to underestimate Mila Kunis. She’s the petite, gorgeous actor who kick-started her career as a teenager on the TV comedy "That ’70s Show" and continues to earn laughs today voicing Meg on TV’s "Family Guy." On the big screen she’s cracked wise in comedies such as Forgetting Sarah MarshallTed and Friends With Benefits.

But the 31-year-old knows she can do more than just make people laugh. She turned heads as a conniving ballerina in 2010’s Black Swan, and in 2013 she was the heartbroken witch who turns nasty in Oz: The Great and Powerful.

In the Wachowskis-directed sci-fi Jupiter Ascending, Kunis will play lowly janitor Jupiter Jones, who learns from a human/wolf hybrid warrior (Channing Tatum) that she’s actually alien royalty and the rightful ruler of Earth.

We caught up with her while she was driving around Los Angeles — “Don’t worry, »

Ted 2’s numbers were almost 10 times as high as Jurassic World, which managed 2.7 million views for its second trailer.

Mark Wahlberg Tries to Steal Tom Brady's Sperm in Ted 2's Super Bowl Trailer! Watch the Patriots Player Kick His Ass

2 February 2015 8:18 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's not easy for a talking teddy bear to procreate. Universal Pictures debuted the second trailer for Ted 2 during Super Bowl Xlix Sunday, and it showed Ted (Seth MacFarlane) asking his buddy John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg) to help him find a sperm donor. As it turned out, Ted already had a donor in mind. "Tom Brady?!" John asked after sneaking into the New England Patriots player's bedroom. "Two MVPs," Ted explained. "Guaranteed Hall of Famer. Now let's give him a hand job into this cup." (After Sunday's game, however, the 37-year-old NFL player became a three-time Super Bowl Mvp). Ted and John marveled at the size of Tom's manhood.

Watch: 'Ted 2' Super Bowl Trailer Sneaks a Peek at Tom Brady's Golden Boy

2 February 2015 8:03 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The New England Patriots got lucky yesterday that the Seattle Seahawks forgot they had the most powerful running back in the NFL and decided to thrown an interception at the end of the Super Bowl rather than attempt to run the ball into the end zone four straight times. It was perhaps the stupidest offensive play call in the history of the Super Bowl (and maybe that I've ever seen). Congrats! At the end of the game Tom Brady was accepting the Mvp award as I was walking around in a stupor, wondering how the hell this all happened after Jermaine Kearse's miraculous catch, which I guess you could also argue was luck, but I digress... During the Super Bowl, Brady was also featured in the latest trailer for Ted 2 as Ted (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) and Mark Wahlberg sneak into Brady's house looking for a sperm donation. The »
