‘Boyz In The Wood’ Review: It’s The Most Dangerous Game On Acid In This Winningly Outrageous Classist Satire [SXSW]

‘Boyz In The Wood’ Review: It’s The Most Dangerous Game On Acid In This Winningly Outrageous Classist Satire [SXSW]
Music videos are descriptively rhythm-driven short films, and short films are just precursory pathways to feature filmmaking, so it shouldn’t surprise when directors bounce between mediums. Take Ninian Doff, for instance. The man behind Miike Snow’s “The Trigger” and Royal Blood’s “Figure It Out” (amongst other musician collaborations) makes his full-length debut with the hip-hop-Highlands […]

Kanye West Adds Nas Album to His Manic Spring Release Schedule

Kanye West Adds Nas Album to His Manic Spring Release Schedule
Kanye West’s Twitter binge continued unabated through Sunday, as he added albums he’s produced from Teyana Taylor, Pusha T and Nas to a schedule that already included albums from himself and a collaboration with Kid Cudi — all of which will somehow be released in May and June, he says. West was known or reported to be working with many of these artists in recent months, and although he’s worked with Nas multiple times in the past 15-odd years — most recently both guested on French Montana’s “Figure It Out,” and West contributed music to Nas’ 2016 film “The Land” — but a new album was news.

“I’m hand-produced all the albums I tweeted about. Been chopping samples from the sunken place,” he wrote, referencing a hypnotic state from the film “Get Out.” He then sent several tweets about how much he loves driving a Tesla car.

The tally so far?

Tom Cruise Confirms ‘Top Gun’ Sequel: ‘It’s Definitely Happening’

Tom Cruise Confirms ‘Top Gun’ Sequel: ‘It’s Definitely Happening’
Tom Cruise confirmed yesterday that long-circulating rumors of a “Top Gun” sequel are true.

“It’s true,” he said on an Australian talk show, much to the anchor’s surprise. “I’m going to start probably in the next year. I know, it’s happening. It’s definitely happening.” The star offered no other information, but added: “You’re the first people I’ve said it to, you asked me and so I’m telling you.”

It’s been thirty years since the original movie launched Cruise’s megastar career in 1986, the highest-grossing film of that year.

Drive-In Dust Offs: Hospital Massacre aka X-ray (1981)

So you’re wading through piles of slasher films from the ‘80s, keen on discovering a lost gem far removed from the normal gang in the woods or high school sis-boom-bah stab and gab. You’re thinking maybe a different setting will yield a fresh take, already tired tropes blurring your vision and making the distinction between a hockey mask and a fencing one harder by the day. Well…have you tried the hospital yet? Most folks are terrified of the antiseptic halls and robotic empathy doled out by uncaring staff. (Yes, yes, they also save lives, I know. I’m trying to set a mood, dammit.) And if you do decide to enter the medical field, I strongly suggest you pay a visit to Hospital Massacre (1981), Israeli King of Schlock Boaz Davidson’s wild attempt at a horror comedy, where some of the humor is even intentional.

Ridley Scott and Cast Drop Alien: Covenant Secrets at SXSW

Ridley Scott and Cast Drop Alien: Covenant Secrets at SXSW
Ridley Scott, at the age of 79-years-old, is a man who is showing absolutely no signs of slowing down. After directing The Martian, his most critically and financially successful movie in more than 15 years, he is returning to the world of Alien with the highly-anticipated Alien: Covenant. Unlike Prometheus, this movie is not just going to be taking place within that same universe with loose ties to the Alien mythology. This is a true-to-form Alien movie and if Ridley Scott has his way, it will be the first of many.

I was lucky enough to participate in a roundtable discussion with Sir Ridley Scott at SXSW about Alien: Covenant. We were also joined by cast members Katherine Waterston and Danny McBride, who seemed just as pleased to be there as everyone else. The second a man like Ridley Scott starts talking, everyone listens. He speaks quietly yet confidently and says what he wants.

Timeless Season 1 Episode 8 Review: Space Race

  • TVfanatic
A more well-rounded portrait of Flynn emerges as he travels back to 1969 to sabotage the American lunar landing.

While still blowing away nameless people in the past, Flynn actually helps out a couple of his loved ones on Timeless Season 1 Episode 8.

The urge to save loved ones is something to which both Lucy and Wyatt could relate.

It's obvious from the look on his face that Maria is someone special to Flynn. And it's easy to forgive Flynn for wanting to save his half-brother Gabriel so that his mother wouldn't be so sad in future years.

But Flynn's plan to change the whole direction of the Cold War, well, not so much. Callously killing a guidance officer for his ID card and a plumber for his uniform isn't so simple to dismiss as mere collateral damage,

Flynn seems to see himself as meaning well, but with the body count he's

‘Edge of Tomorrow 2′: Doug Liman Says It Will Be ‘A Sequel That’s a Prequel’

‘Edge of Tomorrow 2′: Doug Liman Says It Will Be ‘A Sequel That’s a Prequel’
Doug Liman is gearing up to film “Edge of Tomorrow 2,” which will reteam the director with Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt. It was previously reported that a sequel was underway after the 2014 film exceeded expectations and received positive reviews from critics.

While details are under wraps for “Edge of Tomorrow 2,” Liman told Collider that the sequel will actually be a prequel.

“That is the only sequel that I’m considering doing, and it’s because first of all the story is so amazing—much better than the original film, and I loved and loved the original film—and second of all, it’s a sequel that’s a prequel,” he stated.

Top 10 Takeaways: Movie Star Brands Tyler Perry and Tom Cruise Boost Box Office

Top 10 Takeaways: Movie Star Brands Tyler Perry and Tom Cruise Boost Box Office
This weekend’s openers did not look like standouts on paper. But two star vehicles, Tyler Perry’s “Boo! A Madea Halloween” (Lionsgate) and Tom Cruise’s “Jack Reacher: Never Look Back” (Paramount), both exceeded their expected $20 million openings. The reason? They gave moviegoers, who may be feeling a tad rattled during this tempestuous election season, something familiar and safe.

Add in the middling “Ouija: Origin of Evil” (Universal) and the flop “Keeping Up With the Joneses” (20th Century Fox) and the unusually heavy release schedule (before the must-to-avoid Halloween weekend) reversed recent sliding gross totals. Temporary? We’ll see. But it’s better news for sure.

The Top Ten

1. Boo! A Madea Halloween (Lionsgate) New – Cinemascore: A; Metacritic: 34; Est. budget: $20 million

$27,600,000 in 2,260 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $12,212; Cumulative: $27,600,000

2. Jack Reacher: Never Look Back (Paramount) New – Cinemascore: B+; Metacritic: 47 ; Est. budget: $60 million

$23,000,000 in 3,780 theaters; PTA: $6,085; Cumulative: $23,000,000

Amanda Bynes' Very Own Show Premiered 15 Years Ago – And Et Was There

Amanda Bynes' Very Own Show Premiered 15 Years Ago – And Et Was There
Back in 2001, we talked to the rising young star on the set of Nickelodeon's 'The Amanda Show.' What went wrong?

It's hard to believe but October 16 marks 15 years since The Amanda Show -- starring a then-13-year-old Amanda Bynes -- first premiered on Nickelodeon.

Airing from 1999 to 2002, the All That spin-off show turned Bynes, now 28, into a star.

But clearly, it hasn't all been smooth sailing from there. In the last month, the troubled actress has made daily headlines with erratic behavior, explosive allegations and – on October 10 – a return to being held at a psychiatric treatment facility, potentially for up to a year.

'Legends of the Hidden Temple: The Movie' is a hilariously fake nostalgia trip -- Video
Green monkeys! Orange iguanas! If these unnaturally occurring animal-color combinations don’t send chills down your spine, you weren’t a child of the ‘90s.

Funny or Die has posted a fake trailer for Legends of the Hidden Temple: The Movie, a would-be action flick that finds a gruff former contestant drinking away his sorrows as he contemplates returning (a la Lost) into the cruel hands of Olmec the Terrifying. “You think you’re going to be all right, just ’cause you have a guide,” muses the faded former Red Jaguar as memories of a distant Kirk Fogg appear.

Figure It Out: Cancelled by Nickelodeon

It's game over for Figure It Out on Nickelodeon. The competition series has been cancelled according to host Jeff Sutphen.

Responding to a fan's question about the future of the series, Sutphen wrote, "unless your secret talent is bringing canceled shows back we will not be shooting any more episodes of #Fio #sadface"

Hosted by Summer Sanders, the Figure It Out game show ran for four seasons between 1997 and 2000. The series was revived in June 2012 with Sutphen and aired for two more seasons. The finale episode aired on July 16th of this year.

The Whedonverse And Its Finger : Wamg At The Much Ado About Nothing Press Day

Shakespeare’s classic comedy is given a contemporary spin in Joss Whedon’s film, “Much Ado About Nothing”. Shot in just 12 days (and using the original text), the story of sparring lovers Beatrice and Benedick offers a dark, sexy and occasionally absurd view of the intricate game that is love.

Joss Whedon, along with stars Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, Nathan Fillion, and Clark Gregg sat down recently at an La press conference to talk about the film, as well as their experiences in the Whedonverse. I was there, and I must say that things got pretty silly, as you can expect. It was, by far, the best (and most entertaining) press conference that I’ve attended to date. Check it out below.

Joss, this is absolutely beautiful in black and white. What considerations did you and D.P. Jay Hunter have in doing this in black and white, and why
