ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES
Though it's great to have the channel 4 news team back together again, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is likely to lightly disappoint those who've been salivating for more adventures with Will Ferrell's Ron Burgundy and the gang. Yes, there's plenty of funny, and it's easily one of the best comedy sequels ever. But when you're ranking those, it points out that most...

The charming qualities of the first Despicable Me are still present in its sequel, Despicable Me 2. In some ways, it's funnier than its predecessor. While the movie suffers slightly from some annoying stereotypes, that doesn't stop it from being adorable or entertaining.

THE INCREDIBLE BURT WONDERSTONE
It’s a very slow week for new releases, perhaps because we’re about to hit the fourth of July, but one of the spring’s biggest surprise hits and one of its bigger bombs are coming out this week, along with one of the most respected documentaries ever made.

Anchorman 2 Poster Preview
Acting as yet another placeholder in lieu of any actual footage from the film (just like the first teaser), the second teaser for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is now here, acting as a stopgap to keep us all interested until official footage is actually released.   And usually, such crass advertising would be kind of annoying or obvious; here, though, it’s just quite...

The 200th and final episode of the venerable NBC series wraps it up with a lot of comedy, plenty of guest stars and, most importantly, one last round of memories from a great TV show. Check below for the full (and...

'Anchorman 2' Adds Even More Cameos

With Anchorman: The Legend Continues one of the most anticipated films of the year, it's going to be hard to keep a lid on some of the film's secrets. Like who's coming back in small parts, and who's cameo-ing (we're not talking about someone like Harrison Ford, who looks to have a meatier role). So, if you want to know about three cameos, read on. If not, we...

Sundance 2013: The Way, Way Back - Movie Review

SH-The Way, Way Back, 1/16/13
At the Sundance Film Festival, it's important to consider the sequence of movies you're seeing.  Odds are you'll want to save something pleasant, uplifting, or fun for the end.  That way you can walk away with a positive feeling, instead of being weighed down by the heavy subject matter that's typical of Sundance dramas.  Thankfully, Oscar winners Nat Faxon & Jim Rash (The...

Top 5 Fun
The 2013 Sundance Film Festival is tons of fun (Industry parties!  Woooo!), but let's remember that this is also the festival that brought us films like Winter's Bone, Restrepo, West of Memphis, and The Sessions.  Don't get me wrong, these are all terrific films, but they're all kind of...

'Despicable Me 2' Gets a Spooky New Trailer

Published by

Despicable Me 2
Though it's not due out until July 2013, Despicable Me 2 has just released its second trailer, which focuses on The Minion characters who will also be getting a spin off movie of their own. We don't hear the voices of stars Steve Carell, Al Pacino and Kristen Wiig - it's really a teaser, and we wouldn't be surprised if 90% of the footage was made specifically for this...

'The Office' Is Finally, Mercifully Coming To An End In 2013

The Office Season 8 Episode 24 Free Family Portrait Studio – TV Review
After a steady decline in quality, writing, and humor of the past few seasons, the departure of series anchor Steve Carell, and the imminent departure of Mindy Kaling, B.J. Novak, and Rainn Wilson (who is getting a Dwight spin-off), no one would be too surprised if NBC finally did what had to be done, took the long-running The Office back...

Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World – Steve Carell and Keira Knightley (TOP)
Lorene Scafaria's take on the end of the world is vastly different from most of the Apocalyptic Hollywood movies we see. Her asteroid movie Seeking A Friend For the End Of The World doesn't involve an army of drillers sent into space to rescue planet Earth. Instead, this first time director takes a magnifying glass and looks closely at what two regular folks would do...

Anchorman: The Legend Continues (or Anchorman 2, for those of you with short attention spans) dropped a new teaser onto the internet this morning (as if new teases for Skyfall and The Master weren’t enough for one day).  A bit of a rush job, there’s no new footage in the Anchorman: The Legend Continues teaser, but it does round up Will Ferrell, Paul...

With the news that Anchorman was finally getting the sequel its creators had tried to make (for years now), you'd figure they'd have their ideas and plans on lockdown. There was talk of testing it as a stage show, and all sorts of interesting rumors about the directions it could head, but writer/director Adam McKay has talked about their progress so far. He tells...

I you were given the news that in just three weeks, a plotline straight out of Armageddon and/or Deep Impact was hurtling from deep space on a collision course with Earth, and that all life would be eradicated in just 21 days, what would you do?  Loot, cry, watch TV, go back to work, party for three weeks straight?  It’s a question...

Top 5 TV Comedies That Figured It Out

Published by

Parks and Recreations
As with every new year of television, the weakest shows that cost the most money are often cancelled after airing a handful of episodes. For example:  this season, we've already seen The Playboy Club get shuttered, among others. TV shows are often about the ensemble, and most of their casts need time to work together to see how their chemistry develops over longer...

Crazy, Stupid, Love: Movie Review

Published by

Crazy Stupid Love Steve-Carell Ryan-Gosling
Crazy, Stupid, Love, is another simple, funny, easy to swallow and in no way challenging comedy that was made for everyone. It's got some fine actors, giving good performances (though none of their best) with some solid comedic lines and quite a bit of heart. My only problem is that it really wasn't anything that new or different. That's not...
