She Is ‘Maisel’, Hear Her Roar: Amazon Series Creators & Stars On #MeToo Timing & Blazing A New Trail
Two-thirds of the way into the pilot of Amazon Studios’ The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, there’s a moment that underscores just how unflappable Rachel Brosnahan’s uptown Jewish housewife heroine, Miriam ‘Midge’ Maisel, truly is.

Her business suit-wearing wannabe stand-up hack of a husband, Joel (Michael Zegen), drops the news on the eve of what will be a very busy Yom Kippur that he’s leaving Midge for his secretary Penny—and with his wife’s suitcase no less.

“You’re leaving me for a girl who can’t figure out how to sharpen pencils?” stings Midge.

“I need to start over,” Joel groans.

“With her? She wins?” Midge asks—without tears—before slamming Joel. “Can I just say you have the worst timing ever?”

Then comes her punchline: “Grab some pens on the way out, you’re going to need them.

How Multiple Emmy Nominee ‘Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ Made A Mark In #MeToo Times

How Multiple Emmy Nominee ‘Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ Made A Mark In #MeToo Times
In comedy, timing is everything, and for the comedy series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, its timing couldn’t be more perfect.

In November, Amazon Prime dropped eight episodes of the period series, a sort of Mad Men meets Broadway Danny Rose, in its tale of a young uptown Manhattan divorcee who tries to take the mic as a stand-up comedienne in a chauvinistic 1958 with her female manager who also is being taken less seriously by her male peers. With its fairy tale billboards of its title character donning a red fashionable coat amid fedora-wearing trenchcoated men and its starry children’s book logo, the Mrs. Maisel marketing appeared to be targeted at those Amazon Prime families who might be sidelined at home during the holidays. But upon watching the series, one would soon realize much how Mrs. Maisel spoke to the #MeToo and Time’s Up era around us.

‘Accident Man’ DVD Review

Stars: Scott Adkins, Ray Stevenson, Michael Jai White, Ray Park, Ashley Greene, David Paymer, Nick Moran, Tim Man, Ross O’Hennessy | Written by Scott Adkins, Stu Small | Directed by Jesse V. Johnson

Not all comic-book movies have to be about superheroes… or heroes at all for that matter. Case in point: Accident Man. Originally debuting in a series of comic strips in the 90s UK comic Toxic!, Accident Man was created by Pat Mills and Tony Skinner – two legends of the UK comics scene who, beside this character, penned stories or Judge Dredd and ABC Warriors. In fact Mills is one of creators of 2000Ad, a British institution that has already seen success outside of the comics realm, with numerous video games based on characters within its pages and not one but two Judge Dredd movies!

For those not familiar with the Mills and Skinner creation, Mike Fallon is a hitman,

As you’re no doubt well aware, comic book movies are all the rage these days. While we still get the odd dud, the genre continues going from strength to strength and the Marvel Cinematic Universe is at the forefront of that right now.

Accident Man Trailer Is Full of Nasty 90s-Style Action

Accident Man Trailer Is Full of Nasty 90s-Style Action
Brace yourselves for the utter insanity that is the Accident Man trailer. Deadpool and Logan have kicked the door wide open for Hollywood to explore the idea of R-rated comic book movies in a big way. And, in this case, in kind of a small way. Accident Man isn't going to make its way to the big screen, but that doesn't mean it can't pack a serious R-rated punch. If nothing else, this footage looks absolutely nuts and, though cheesy, pretty impressive for something on a very minimal budget. Dare we say, there are even gentle shades of John Wick in here. After all, this movie was directed by a former stuntman, much like John Wick and John Wick: Chapter Two.

That said, it's hard to expect that Accident Man, which arrives on DVD and Digital platforms on February 6, 2018, will be nearly as pleasantly surprising as John Wick. However, the

Lemon Review

Humans. Such a savage tribe. Complex beings who view heartwarming triumphs and delusional meltdowns with the same excitement. Life deals a bum hand now and again, which we like to see in our movies – something Janicza Bravo’s Lemon understands. A quirky, deadpan descent into emotional abandonment that tears one man apart day by day. Arthouse to the core, but with detrimental and divisive results. You can only endure so many jump-away cuts and vapid characters before dialogue becomes Charlie-Brown-teacher monotone. “Wah wah, wah wah,” cut to thrown cake. “Wah wah,” enter Megan Mullally. A formula always followed by the same question – “Why?”

Brett Gelman stars as Isaac, whose blind wife of 10 years just walked out for good. At the same time, his star theater pupil Alex (Michael Cera) is leaving for a major motion picture filming in Denmark. It doesn’t help that his agent (played by Jeff Garlin

The Pickle Recipe – St. Louis Jewish Film Festival Review

Review by Mark Longden

The Pickle Recipe Screens Wednesday, June 7, at 1 Pm, Plaza Frontenac Cinema

The St Louis Jewish Film Festival is now in its 22nd year, and it’s to be commended for bringing so many interesting and stimulating movies to us here in the Midwest. This year has documentaries, dramas, and plenty of comedy too, of which The Pickle Recipe is perhaps the standout.

First up, in case you’re wondering about bias, I love Jon Dore. His Canadian show, a forerunner to “Inside Amy Schumer” (which he guested on), a mix of sketches, standup and interviews with interesting people, was brilliant, and since then he’s appeared in lots of movies and shows and is always hilarious. Here, he’s Joey, a musician / party organiser, who specialises in mitzvahs (both bar and bat), who seems to genuinely love his work.

But, a happy chap doing his job

The 25 greatest movies about making movies

Mark Harrison May 19, 2017

From the currently playing Their Finest to the likes of Bowfinger and Boogie Nights, we salute the movies about making movies...

If you haven't caught up yet, Their Finest is currently playing in UK cinemas and it's a gorgeous little love letter to perseverance through storytelling, set against the backdrop of a film production office at the British Ministry of Information during the Second World War. Based on Lissa Evans' novel, Gemma Arterton and Bill Nighy play characters whose access to the film industry has been contingent on the global crisis that takes other young men away from such trifling matters, and it's a real joy to watch.

Among other things, the film got us thinking about other films about making films. We're not talking about documentaries, even though Hearts Of Darkness, the documentary about the making of Apocalypse Now, may be the greatest film about
