After successfully launching the acclaimed scripted series Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce and Odd Mom Out, Bravo is continuing its foray into fictionalized television with their new original drama, Imposters. And it’s enlisting the help of an Oscar-nominated actress to do so — Uma Thurman!

Previously announced as My So-Called Wife, the show stars Israeli-American actress Inbar Lavi (The Last Ship) as persona-shifting con-artist Maddie — who has left a trail of angry exes »

Election Movies To Watch

8 November 2016 7:44 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

– By We Are Movie Geeks Staff –

Our long election season is finally coming to an end, and all that remains is to vote. And watch an election-themed movie!

Going through the list of movies about elections, the Movie Geeks found a lot more negative than positive ones, and more movies about manipulative people behind the candidate than inspiring candidates. While there is a lot of biting social commentary and satire, there are a few light and silly election movies too. So top cap off election season, here are a dozen election and political movies.

Don’t forget to vote!

The Campaign

Jay Roach, director of the true story political HBO filmsRecount” and “Game Change”, goes for the big laughs in this farce about a lazy, scandal-ridden incumbent congressman Cam Brady (Will Ferrell) who faces off against a bumbling, naive altruistic Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis). This comic gem captures all the election craziness, »

The Films That Help Explain The Us Election

6 November 2016 8:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway looks at films that deal with political campaigns…

Unless you’ve been living away from society, disconnected from any news source for the past eighteen months, you’ll be aware that there is a Us Presidential Election this week. It’s been a hard fought, bitter campaign with serious allegations thrown at each candidate from the other side. Donald Trump can count on the backing of serious political heavyweights such as Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson, 16 And Pregnant star turned porn actress Farrah Abraham, and Million Dollar Man Ted Dibiase. Hillary Clinton has had to make do with the backing of Barack Obama, Colin Powell and virtually every major newspaper in America.

If you’re confused about the process, or just can’t get enough of the debates, dramas and dirt slinging, then here are a few films to watch…

The Candidate is a 1972 film starring Robert Redford as a young, »

The Accountant movie review: by the numbers but outside the lines

4 November 2016 10:26 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take…

So convoluted, confusing, and overly crammed that it’s overwhelming, and not in a pleasant way. But Ben Affleck’s autistic action hero is fascinating. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

There’s so much going on in the unlikely action drama The Accountant that I think we can be forgiven for wondering whether writer Bill Dubuque (The Judge) and director Gavin O’Connor (Jane Got a Gun, Pride and Glory) are attempting to give us a little taste of what the world must be like for its hero, Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck). Wolff calls himself a high-functioning autistic, but he’s not that high-functioning: the tentative control he seems to have over the sensory overload he suffers from is a result of daily desensitization sessions, during which he subjects himself »

20 great movie monsters who only appear in one scene

2 November 2016 12:26 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Padraig Cotter Nov 18, 2016

From The Cabin In The Woods and Ghostbusters through to Pan's Labyrinth: the movie monsters that make a huge impression in their one scene.

Screen monsters come in all shapes and sizes, from the bizarre beauty of Giger’s Alien all the way through to the very human evil of Seven’s John Doe. Audiences have a strange relationship with these creatures, being both repelled and fascinated by them at the same time. This push/pull attraction has been going on since the birth of cinema, and it’s likely to continue for many years to come.

Sometimes the most enduring creatures are the ones that pop up, steal the movie and then swiftly exit stage left. It could be their unique design or the impact they have on the story, but for the monsters included here, all they needed was one scene to impact on our collective nightmares. »

Masterminds (2016) – Review

29 September 2016 9:49 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Hey, there’s another movie out this weekend that’s “based on a true story”, but as the Monty Pythons would say, “And now for something completely different”. It’s not a gripping disaster like Deepwater Horizon (although its release problems were a disaster), but a “caper farce”. This flick concerns a real life heist like The Brink’S Job, but committed by The Gang That Couldn’T Shoot Straight. This crew gets by on sheer, bumbling stupidity because nobody would ever seriously refer to them as Masterminds.

The first mastermind we meet is Loomis Fargo money transport armored truck driver David Ghatt (Zach Galifiankis) circa 1997. Via voiceover he explains that he leads a dull life, that he’d even welcome a hold-up, despite the fact that he’ll soon tie the knot with his off-kilter fiance’ Jandice (Kate McKinnon). His world is soon rocked by the hiring of his new work partner, »

The Weekend Warrior 9/30/2016: Deepwater Horizon, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Masterminds

28 September 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.   

This Past Weekend:

 While the new movies reigned at the box office this past weekend, both Antoine Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven (Sony) and the animated Storks (Warner Bros.) didn’t fare nearly as well as our projections, both falling short by about $10 million. The Magnificent Seven, starring Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt, fared decently with $34.7million, which is about the average for Washington’s films, but the fourth highest opening for a Western after last year’s The Revenant, the animated Rango, and Cowboys and Aliens. Storks’ $21.3 million opening wasn’t great compared to other animated September releases with Sony still holding the September opening record with Hotel Transylvania 2, but it should continue to do well with no other animated movies opening for another month. »

How ‘Talladega Nights,’ ‘Stepbrothers’ Paved the Way for ‘The Big Short’

27 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Adam McKay hoisted his adapted screenplay Oscar back in February for “The Big Short,” his excoriating dissection of Wall Street’s deft and destructive thuggery, that sound you heard was the collective “Wtf” of dozens of top film critics and pundits who’d spent the entire awards season writing a variation of the “I never saw this coming” mea culpa/apologia.

To justify their myopia, the press generally cited “Step Brothers” (2008) as the ultimate Other Side of Paradise credit on McKay’s resume, neatly evading their own misreadings of McKay’s — and his co-conspirator in Gary Sanchez Prods., Will Ferrell’s — many other overtly and hilariously political ruminations on America’s cultural fissures, fixations and florid foibles.

They should be red-faced, especially since no less an authority than America’s preeminent docu-politico Michael Moore knew what they were up to a decade ago. “The day after ‘Talladega Nights’ opened, »

Will Ferrell to Play Ronald Reagan in New Comedy

27 April 2016 8:44 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After spending years imitating President George W. Bush on Saturday Night Live and on Broadway, Will Ferrell will be taking on another President. The actor has signed on to star in and produce Reagan, where he'll play U.S. President Ronald Reagan. The script by Mike Rosolio landed on The Black List last year as one of the best unproduced screenplays.

The story is described as a "hilarious political satire" by Variety, following Ronald Reagan as he falls into dementia at the start of his second term, when an ambitious intern is tasked with convincing the commander in chief that he is an actor playing the president in a movie. The script got so much buzz on The Black List that the company put on a live reading in Hollywood last month, with James Brolin reading the title role. The rest of the cast for that one-night-only live read included John Cho, »
