Tina Fey Blasts Trump, Neo-Nazis and Paul Ryan While Eating Cake (Video)

1 hour ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Tina Fey returned to the “Saturday Night Live” set for “Weekend Update Summer Edition” on Thursday, explaining that eating cake is more productive than trying to counter-protest white supremacy. Fey, who graduated University of Virginia in Charlottesville, said it broke her heart to see “evil forces” descend on her former campus last weekend. Fey “felt sick” after hearing President Trump’s remarks, in which he infamously said people on “many sides” were to blame. “I’ve seen ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark,'” she said. “And I wasn’t confused by it… Nazis are always bad.” Also Read: Inside ' »

Watch Tina Fey Take Out Charlottesville Angst on Sheet Cake on 'SNL'

1 hour ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Tina Fey, a University of Virginia graduate, appeared on Weekend Update to talk about Charlottesville and how "sheet caking" is the best way to ignore white power groups.

"It's a beautiful school and I have nothing of fond memories of my time there," the former Saturday Night Live star said.

"So it broke my heart to see these evil forces descend on Charlottesville, and then our president, Donald John Trump – which I don't think people talk about enough what a stupid jackass name that is… – anyway Donnie John comes out »

Tina Fey Delivers Takedown of President Trump, White Supremacists on ‘Weekend Update’ (Watch)

2 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Tina Fey turned up on Thursday’s edition of “Saturday Night Live’s” special summer “Weekend Update” episode to deliver a biting commentary on the violence in Charlottesville, Va., last weekend and President Donald Trump’s response.

Fey encouraged anguished Americans to engage in “sheetcaking,” or the process of binge eating a sheet cake with an American flag design on the icing. Fey told viewers that she graduated from the University of Virginia, which is in Charlottesville, in 1992. She wore a gray sweatshirt emblazoned with the university’s logo.

“It broke my heart to see these evil forces descend on Charlottesville,” Fey said of the white supremacists rally held on Friday and Saturday. The melee among protesters and counter-protester on Saturday left a 32-year-old woman dead.

Fey’s history with the city clearly animated her performance opposite “Weekend Update” anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che. Fey anchored “Weekend Update” for most of her 1998-2006 tenure on “SNL »

6 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Three “Saturday Night Live” alums returned to the “Weekend Update” desk for NBC’s special summer edition of the show on Thursday night, but it was Tina Fey who stole the show with her rant/performance art.

The proud University of Virginia grad wore a Uva sweatshirt to reveal just how shaken she was about the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville that ended in the murder of a counter-protestor. “It broke my heart to see these evil forces descend upon Charlottesville,” she said. “Donny John comes out and he says that he condemns violence ‘on many sides.”… I’m feeling sick because I’ve seen ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ and I wasn’t confused by it…Nazis are always bad.”

Tina Fey Returns to 'Weekend Update' to Slam White Nationalists and Donald Trump: 'Nazis Are Always Bad'

11 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Tina Fey returned to Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update desk on Thursday, where she railed on the violent white nationalist rally over the weekend at the University of Virigina, which is Fey's alma mater.

"It broke my heart to see these evil forces descend upon Charlottesville," Fey began, before calling out President Donald Trump for his refusal to openly condemn the violence committed by white supremacists at the demonstration. "[Trump] comes out and he says that he condemns violence on many sides, and I’m feeling sick because I’ve seen Raiders of the Lost Ark and I wasn’t confused by it. Nazis are always bad. I don’t care what you say."

10 Best Movies Where Nazis Get Their Asses Kicked

15 August 2017 7:21 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Nazis are right up their with space aliens and zombies as a reliable potential foe. Nazis are the worst. We fought a world war because they were so bad, and they will always be bad. No one making Raiders of the Lost Ark had to worry about, “Huh, I wonder if Nazis will still be a reliable villain in thirty years.” Sadly, current events have made some Nazis and their fellow white-supremacists feel a bit bolder, but we’ll always be ready to smack them back down. And if you need a little cinematic inspiration, here are ten of … »

Star Wars: Han Solo - Ron Howard Tweets New Photo From The Set

10 August 2017 5:00 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

As the next Star Wars anthology, the yet to be titled Han Solo movie, continues through the film making process we get another photo via Twitter from the film’s director, Ron Howard. The photo is actually of Ron Howard himself, sitting in front of a monitor, and by the tweets caption, we know he is checking a camera. This photo is the latest in a series of images from the set released by the director.

What is actually going on in the scene on the monitor that Howard is looking at is anyone’s guess, even zooming in, the only thing I could really make out was one of the people in the shot was an alien. With all the drama that recently surrounded the film before Howard came in and took over the project, »

Actors Almost Cast in Star Wars Movies

10 August 2017 4:26 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When it comes to the Star Wars movies, it's hard to imagine anyone else in the iconic roles of heroes like Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Princess Leia. Even the Star Wars prequels most aggressive critics will admit that Ewan McGregor shined as Obi-Wan Kenobi, the character fans of the galaxy far, far away first encountered as embodied by the late Sir Alec Guinness. But as with any film, the casting process is, well, a process. And there have been plenty of legendary actors who almost made their way into this galaxy from a long time ago and very far, far away.

Most fans know that Kurt Russell was among the actors considered for the role of everyone's favorite scruffy nerf herder, Han Solo. He even screen tested with aspiring Luke Skywalker William Katt, who would later star as television's Greatest American Hero. Karen Allen auditioned for Princess Leia, a »

Exclusive: 'Shazam!' Director David Sandberg Dishes on Bringing the DC Hero to the Big Screen: 'It's Very Fun'

7 August 2017 10:09 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Up-and-coming horror director David F. Sandberg will soon be helming DC's Shazam!, and the 36-year-old filmmaker says he's looking forward to bringing the relatively obscure superhero to the big screen.

"It's very fun, lighthearted movie," Sandberg told Et's Ash Crossan at theLos Angeles premiere of his latest film, Annabelle: Creation, on Monday."It's about a kid who gets to become an adult superhero, so that's just gonna be so fun to explore."

Shazam! -- which tells the story of a young boy named Billy Batson, who is given the power to become the adult superhero Captain Marvel and battle the forces of evil with the use of a magic word -- is planned as primarily an origin story, and will likely be an introduction to the hero for many moviegoers.

Sharknado 5 Recap: In Latest Schlock Attack, the Hunted Became Hunters

6 August 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

I’ll say this much about sometimes-monotonous Sharknado 5: Global Swarming: it was a slight improvement on last year’s completely monotonous The 4th Awakens.

Surveying the franchise-to-date, as TVLine’s resident, I’m Getting Too Old for This Fish expert: Part 2 (The Second One) still reigns, having served up fun riffs on Airplane! and the like. Part 3 (Oh Hell No!) was inundated with un-clever NBC Universal shilling, you will (?) remember, while Part 4 seemed content to introduce a new, high-larious kind of “-nado” every five minutes… and leave it at that.

Temple Of Doom Is Steven Spielberg's Least Favorite Indiana Jones Movie

2 August 2017 1:40 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

While most fans of the Indiana Jones franchise label Kingdom of the Crystal Skull as their least favorite and refer to it as the worst in the series, there are a select few who give that title to Temple of Doom.  The second installment in the series of films has always been third on my list (actually it would be second, because I can never decide which is better, Raiders or Crusade, it has always been a tie), and the lists of most people I know, with Kingdom of the Crystal Skull being last. As it turns out, one of those select few I mentioned happens to be director, Steven Spielberg, who says Temple of Doom is his least favorite Indiana Jones film.

This interesting bit of information comes from Susan Lacy, a filmmaker who spent over 30 hours interviewing Spielberg for her new documentary, 'Spielberg', premiering October 7, on HBO. »

Jurassic Park: 10 things you might have missed

1 August 2017 5:01 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Paul Bullock Aug 3, 2017

You may have seen Jurassic Park a dozen times, but there loads of details that are easy to miss. Details like these...

Last week, visual effects artist Todd Vaziri took to Twitter to shatter the illusions of Jurassic Park fans everywhere. "When people watch this 24-year old mega-blockbuster," he tweeted, "they point and laugh at the totally obvious disappearing raptor on each viewing, ya?"

See related  James Bond 007: revisiting Never Say Never Again

What, Todd? The what!?

Alongside this tweet, Vaziri also posted a slowed down Gif of the moment in question and - yep - there it is. During the final set piece, in which the T-Rex (somehow silently) stomps into the Visitor's Centre and gobbles up the Velociraptors, one of the Raptors disappears. Not eaten by the Rex, just gone. One frame, she's there, the next she's not, the following one she's there again. »

The Best Movie Fight Scenes — IndieWire Critics Survey

31 July 2017 10:31 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In honor of the bone-crunching “Atomic Blonde,” what is the greatest movie fight scene?

Read More‘Atomic Blonde’: How They Turned One Amazing Action Scene Into a Seven-Minute Long Take Erin Oliver Whitney (@cinemabite), ScreenCrush

I’ve got a soft spot for wuxia so the “best fight scene” immediately evokes Zhang Yimou in my mind. I could list every fight in “Hero,” sequences so spellbindingly beautiful and graceful you forget you’re watching violence. The bamboo forest battle from “House of Flying Daggers” is another all-timer, a mesmerizing fight that almost entirely takes place in the air. And the bone-crunching, table-smashing »

Great Job, Internet!: Indiana Jones-Star Wars mashup manages to brutally murder Jar Jar, so there’s that

20 July 2017 11:29 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The requirements for a successful movie mashup really depend on the ultimate goal of the one doing the mashing. Maybe you’re looking to prove two different movies are actually the same movie, so you match them up beat-for-beat like this Avatar/Pocahontas mashup. Maybe you’re aiming for maximum comedic effect, so you pick movies from opposing sides of the quality and genre spectrum, like The Wizard Of Oz and You Got Served. Or maybe you just realized Harrison Ford was in two movie franchises and figured that’s a good enough reason to edit them together.

That seemed to be enough for French filmmaker Fabrice Mathieu, the creator of “Raiders Of The Lost Darth,” a mashup of (you guessed it) the opening scene from Raiders Of The Lost Ark and various aspects of the Star Wars franchise. The resulting six-minute short oscillates between convincingly cool and glaringly absurd »
