Interview: Co-Directors Josh Gordon & Will Speck Invite All to ‘Office Christmas Party’

Chicago – The raucous party movie has become a reliable staple in movieland, and now a production tackles the holiday soiré, and all that can go wrong. “Office Christmas Party” is co-directed by Josh Gordon and Will Speck, who also gave us “Blades of Glory” and “The Switch.”

The story features T.J. Miller and Jennifer Aniston as the brother and sister who has inherited their father’s computer business. Miller runs the Chicago office, which is under performing. Aniston’s character wants to shut the branch down, but Miller thinks an epic holiday party will convince a potential client (Courtney B. Vance) to sign on and save the company, and enlists the aide of officemates portrayed by Jason Bateman, Olivia Munn and Kate McKinnon. The movie is filled with wild and funny takes on celebrating the holiday ritual, and shows off the city of Chicago in all of its winter glory.

Review: ‘Office Christmas Party’ Is Lacking In Love, Laughs, And Holiday Spirit

Review: ‘Office Christmas Party’ Is Lacking In Love, Laughs, And Holiday Spirit
Chicago’s hottest club is a midtown tech company called Zenotek Data Storage Systems, and it has everything: Santa Claus sitting on the Iron Throne, Kate McKinnon playing a flatulent Hr lady, and — most importantly — a lethal dose of Baniston (that’s that thing where Jason Bateman and Jennifer Aniston exhume the toxic non-chemistry they’ve already brought to four other, even more excruciating comedies). 50 times longer than the unrelated “SNL” sketch of the same name and somehow featuring half as many laughs, “Office Christmas Party” is the perfect holiday movie for that one dude at your job who still quotes “Wedding Crashers” every time you’re forced to interact with him, screaming “You shut your mouth when you’re talking to me!” in a crowded elevator that’s filled with strangers who work on other floors. You know who I’m talking about.

This is a studio comedy on auto-pilot,

Oscar Week – Animated Features

Cavemen, Minions, Sisters – All were part of Friday night’s Animated Feature symposium at AMPAS where the nominees discussed how their films were developed, talked about their creative processes and presented clips illustrating their techniques.

The evening was hosted by Oscar nominated actor John C. Reilly, star of last year’s lovable Wreck-it Ralph, who affably led the packed house at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater through the many interesting and often hilarious moments of the night.

Turns out, it was a great year for animated films. More people saw the five animated movies than saw all nine Best Picture nominees combined. This was also the first year that both directors and producers could be nominated in the category. In year’s past, the only nominees were the people who helmed the movie.

The Animation Branch of the Academy instituted a special rule for the Animated Feature Film Award.

Movie Review: The Lords Of Salem!!

Rob Zombie’s The Lords Of Salem isn’t for everyone. In fact, the film isn’t for a lot of people. If there’s one film this year that I can say that I would understand if people Didn’T like it, it would be this one. That being said, for those who do see it for what it is, and for those who the film Does find a way to connect with, then I can also understand how they might feel how I do…and that is, that the film is a Visual Masterpiece.

The Lords Of Salem follows Heidi Hawthorne (Sherri Moon Zombie, The Devil’S Rejects, Halloween) a former drug addict who works as one of the three member ‘Big H Radio Team’, along with Herman ‘Whitey’ (Jeff Daniel Phillips, Halloween 2, one of TV’s Cavemen) and Herman ‘Munster’ (Ken Foree, Dawn Of The Dead,

Exclusive Interview: Sam Huntington Discusses ‘Being Human’ Season 2 & Gets Attacked by Co-Star Sam Witwer

Comic book fans may recognize Sam Huntington as Jimmy Olsen in Superman Returns (2006), Human Target (episode 104: “Sanctuary”) and most recently the film adaptation of the Italian horror-private eye comic, Dylan Dog: Dead of the Night sharing the screen once again with co-star Brandon Routh. On television, Huntington has made a habit out of playing characters in need of some serious grooming. In 2007-08, Huntington played Andy of the Cavemen, the ABC comedy based on the Geico Insurance characters and now his most prominent role is his current one on Syfy’s hit adaptation of Being Human. Huntington recently spoke with us about his role of Josh the werewolf on Being Human, the growth of his neurotic character, what we may or may not see in this upcoming season as well all the possible places Josh and Nora will undergo their monthly transformation.

San Diego Comic-Con 2011: First Look at Being Human U.S. Season 2

While we have no clue where they're going with the stellar UK TV series "Being Human" after the events of the last episode, we're happy we have the surprisingly well done U.S. series heading into its second season!

For those not in the know, "Being Human" is sort of like a horror fan's version of the classic sitcom "Three's Company" only without the fluffy chest hair and the ditsy blonde chick.

The series stars Sam Witwer ("Smallville", "Battlestar Galactica") as vampire Aidan, Meaghan Rath ("The Assistants") as ghost Sally, and Sam Huntington ("Cavemen", Superman Returns) as the werewolf Josh.

Take your first look at Season 2 coming this January below courtesy of E! Online, and look for more on "Being Human" soon!

Synopsis:

"Being Human" is a re-imagining of the acclaimed BBC original series that follows three 20-something roommates: a ghost, a vampire, and a werewolf who are struggling to

Exclusive Q&A: Zombie Man Sam Huntington

There's nothing supernatural or scary about Sam Huntington, but the roles he plays are still out of this world. In "Dylan Dog: Dead of Night," Huntington plays the titular detective's assistant Marcus, who is adjusting to his new status as zombie as the two take on paranormal cases in a New Orleans overrun with vampires, werewolves and the undead. Dylan Dog is played by Huntington's friend Brandon Routh, who he starred alongside in "Superman Returns."

While Huntington plays dead on the big screen, he just finished his first season playing a werewolf who rooms with a ghost and a vampire on SyFy's "Being Human." We sat down with the affable 29-year-old actor and talked about his accidental Comic-Con career trajectory and if he is as energized as the characters he plays.

Straight Guys in Love!

Love Is In The Air! Between All The Straight Guys!

While the concept of the "bromance" is nothing new — the term was coined back in the late 90s — observing the popular culture the past couple of weeks, I can't help but feel something has changed when it comes to straight guys expressing their affection for each other. Yes, I know gay guys can be in bromances, both with other gay guys and straight guys, but that's not what I'm addressing here. And, yes, I know there have been touching examples before, but something does seem different.

What exactly? I'd say it's not just how commonplace they've become, but the depth of feeling which these straight guys are now expressing for each other. What, in my opinion, was often kind of a jokey thing in the past, (or a little bit of wishful thinking on the part of fans — see Hawaii Five-0

In the recap clip below from the Being Human episode titled “You’re the One that I Haunt,” Aidan’s ex-love returns and he is curious as to why she didn’t wait for him in the 70s to discover that Bishop threatened her family. She’s dying and doesn’t want to deal with immortality. Josh stays next to Nora and finds out that a sonogram shows that she is 14 weeks pregnant which should be impossible, and Josh is afraid that she might be holding a litter of were-babies.

Syfy Renews Being Human (Us) for Another Year

I have to admit I'm really enjoying the Us version of "Being Human". Yeah, Josh is totally annoying, and Sally is nowhere near as endearing as Annie, her British counterpart. But both Aidan and Bishop kick all kinds of ass. Apparently Syfy agrees as they've just renewed the show for another year.

From Syfy on Facebook:

With 4 episodes left in this season, we're proud to announce that we've just renewed Being Human for second season! Thank you to everyone who has watched & supported it, we couldn't have done it without you!!!

Big Shill Final: The Progressive Insurance Lady vs. Pillsbury Doughboy. Let's get it on!
If there was any doubt about the bonafides of our two Big Shill finalists, it was erased by their convincing Final Four victories over two advertising powerhouses from the old school.
