Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows movie review: shell schlock

Leaden and witless, though it obviously believes there is humor in its loud, chaotic juvenility. It would be an insult to cartoons to call this cartoonish. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

Apparently the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, when they debuted way back in the 1980s, were intended as a parody of superhero comics. I picked up this tidbit from the Tmnt wikipedia page. I did not absorb it through some sort of cinematic osmosis while watching the new Tmnt movie, Out of the Shadows. That would have been impossible. Whatever the truth of the long-ago comic-book Turtles, there is absolutely nothing that marks them as satirical here. (This may also be true of the 2014 movie that rebooted this franchise, but I have so far managed to avoid that one. If only that had

'New Girl' creator on Megan Fox: 'She's funny in a cool way'
A couple of weeks ago, I noted that New Girl had evolved into such an ensemble comedy that it would be just fine during Zooey Deschanel's six-episode maternity leave. So far, we've had two episodes — both of them, like the last few with Deschanel, filmed immediately after production on last season wrapped, so the show could get them done before they lost the star for a while — just featuring the remaining castmembers (plus guests like Fred Armisen, Bill Burr, and Lennon Parham), but the remainder of Deschanel's absence will revolve around the introduction of a temporary addition to the loft: Reagan, a pharmaceutical sales rep played by Megan Fox. Fox has some comedy on her resume, so it's not a complete surprise that she works out quite well in the two episodes I've seen with her. But it's a significant change in the show's usual dynamics, since Reagan is

Jake Kasdan to Direct Jumanji Remake

It’s been confirmed that the upcoming Jumanji remake will be helmed by the guy who also directed Sex TapeJake Kasdan.

Kasdan’s career sways smoothly between movies, including Zero Effect, Friends with Kids, and Bad Teacher, and sitcom TV series such as New Girl, Californication, Ben and Kate, Fresh off the Boat, and others.

At first blush, I wouldn’t really say that he looks like the perfect match for Jumanji (taking into consideration his filmography which consists of more comedic productions), but maybe the idea of him directing the remake will grow on me.

Jumanji is set to hit the big screens on December 25th, 2016.

Celebrity TV fill-ins: From Caitlyn Jenner to Megan Fox
TV shows have found many different ways over the years to work around the pregnancy of their actresses. Sometimes, they do lots of episodes where their characters are always sitting behind a desk, or holding a giant purse, or (in a memorable "Cheers" episode when Shelley Long was pregnant) trapped in an air conditioning duct. "The X-Files" had Scully get abducted, while "Frasier" simply suggested that Daphne had just put on a lot of weight. "New Girl" is taking a multi-pronged approach for its next season. The first five episodes were filmed at the end of production for last season, and to allow the show to resume production while Zoey Deschanel is on maternity leave, Jess will be sequestered on jury duty for a few episodes. And on top of that, the loft will temporarily get a new roommate, played by... ... Megan Fox? Per the press release, "Fox will play 'Reagan,

Inside Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt's Split: He 'Needed a Mother Figure,' Says Source
Though Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt officially announced on Monday that they were ending their relationship after 18 years, rumors of a rift had been circulating for months.

A source who worked closely with Hamm, 44, tells People that in recent years, Westfeldt had been more like a manager or a mother to the former Mad Men star than a girlfriend.

While the source says Westfeldt, 45, kept a "tight leash" on Hamm, "she would also take care of him and support him" during difficult times – and after hard nights of partying.

When Hamm completed rehab for alcohol abuse earlier this year, he

Jon Hamm Splits From Girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt After 18 Years

  • Moviefone
After having one of the most enduring Hollywood relationships in recent memory, Jon Hamm and longtime girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt have called it quits.

Hamm and Westfeldt, who had been together for 18 years, confirmed the break-up to People, saying in a joint statement that the decision was amicable.

"With great sadness, we have decided to separate, after 18 years of love and shared history," the statement said. "We will continue to be supportive of each other in every way possible moving forward."

The "Mad Men" star and the "Friends with Kids" actress had been an enduring symbol of stability in quickie marriage-obsessed Hollywood, and had been together since 1997. But rumors of a split surfaced earlier this year, around the time that Hamm revealed he had entered rehab for alcohol addiction, and though they denied any trouble at the time, the cracks were apparently already beginning to form.

Still, it's shocking to see

Edward Burns Explains How Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg and 'Game of Thrones' Influenced His (Great) First TV Series, 'Public Morals'

Edward Burns Explains How Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg and 'Game of Thrones' Influenced His (Great) First TV Series, 'Public Morals'
For the last decade or so, you probably know Edward Burns as one of two people: The first is that charming New Yorkah who pops up in romantic comedies like "The Holiday," "27 Dresses," "Friends With Kids" and even "Will & Grace." He's snagged a few roles as cops in a couple of studio flicks, as well, but he's a tried and true "Prince Charming"-type for anyone who loves a thick Queens accent. That person, though, is Edward Burns, Studio Actor. Far more interesting to the indie community and film fans at large is Edward Burns, Writer, Actor, Producer and Director. Since his debut film, "The Brothers McMullen," took home the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival in 1995, Burns hasn't stopped writing — and directing, and producing, and acting and more. He's been pumping out character-driven indie films for two decades now, and helping push VOD distribution into the mainstream along the way.

The Overnight – The Review

Right now the big box office battle is between a genetically modified killer dinosaur and a group of emotions inside the mind of a twelve year-old girl. Of course, I’m referring to Pixar’s smash Inside Out. Now one of the main reasons Joy and the gang are in a frenzy is the recent cross-country move by the family of said, often sad, girl, Riley. Yes, this up-rooting can be truly traumatic for the kiddies. But what about their parents? Are they also worried about making new friends. This new film answers that question with a resounding yes. But it’s definitely not an all-ages romp, for this flick owes little to Disney, and more to Mazursky. The late director Paul to be precise, for this echoes his late-sixties counter-culture cinema classic Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice. So, this is a different kind of play date (nudge, nudge, wink,wink
