WTF_1-Sht_Payoff

Based on ‘The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan‘ by the real Kim Barker.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Amy-Tina-467

I know I’m in the minority with my opinion on Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s hosting gig on the Golden Globes. It’s over, been done, trite, stale, hackneyed, vapid, unoriginal, hack and incredibly cliched. I wasn’t a faithful ‘Saturday Night Live‘ viewer when they were starring and every year they host an awards show, I remember why. I’m not saying there isn’t value to the pair’s comedic talents, they shine in movies and I think that’s where they should be.

Tina Fey Learns ‘The Taliban Shuffle’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Feb 21st, 2014

Jana B. here,

Tina Fey

Have you ever wondered how Tina Fey would fare in Afghanistan and Pakistan? No, I haven’t either. No matter, we’re going to see what that looks like on the big screen with ‘The Taliban Shuffle‘. Paramount Pictures is behind the project that Fey will produce, along with a colleague from her ‘Saturday Night Live‘ days, Lorne Michaels.  Robert Carlock, the writer responsible, in part for ’30 Rock’, ‘Saturday Night Live’ and ‘Friends‘, will adapt the book based on Kim Barker’sThe Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan.’

 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards - Show

The speculation that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have signed to host the Golden Globes for the next two years is true. “Tina and Amy are two of the most talented comedic writer/performers in our business, and they were a major reason the Golden Globes was the most entertaining awards show of last season,” said NBC president of alternative and late night programming Paul Telegdy. “We’re elated they wanted to host together again and that they committed for the next two years.” After Poehler and Fey’s last run as hosts had positive reviews and 19.7 million total viewers and a six-year high for the show, the comedy duo is sure to give them another 2 years of greatness.

Misty Here….

Admission-Movie

Over the years, we have seen Hollywood recycle the same old storyline for their romantic comedies, where we see an unlikely relationship between two people go through its ups and downs over the course of two hours. As a woman, I know how cliche and unrealistic this is, however I still enjoy the happy ending Hollywood usually provides when I leave the theater. I usually enjoy the warm, fuzzy feeling I get when I leave the theater.  ‘Admission‘ did not disappoint in that amorous feeling as Tina Fey and Paul Rudd did great jobs in the lead, lending plenty of jokes and heartfelt moments.

Two of the funniest actresses and comediennes, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will join forces and host the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards.  “Having both Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on board to host this year’s festivities is a major coup,” said NBC President, Paul Telegdy.

Theatre Review: The Second City Summer Blockbuster!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 7th, 2018

It’s been over a decade since I last saw The Second City live. If you remember correctly, The Second City is the hilarious comedy enterprise that started a several decades ago in Chicago. It was the highlight for comedy and comedians to enhance and perform their sketch comedy and improv. Since the inception of The Second City, many talented entertainers have started there, including Bill Murray, Tina Fey, John Candy, Steve Carrell, Amy Poehler, Stephen Colbert, and many others.

The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt‘ is back for season 2! Well, not until April 15, but you get my gist. The series has been renewed for not just a second season, but a third, as well by Netflix. The good thing is, you have about a month to binge the first season of Kimmy Schmidt, played by Ellie Kemper, to get all caught up for the second from Tina Fey and Robert Carlock.

Film Review: ‘Whiskey Tango Foxtrot’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 2nd, 2016

Beka P., Here…

cq5dam.web.1280.1280

If you love Tina Fey, you will love Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, but if you thought you were in for Sisters takes Afghanistan you are going to be sorely disappointed. Let me be clear, I really enjoyed this movie. I liked it on a lot of levels. However, one thing I really dislike is when movies are billed as one thing and then show up as something else. It’s kind of like online dating… no one likes it when someone unrecognizable shows up to dinner.

I can’t believe it’s happening, but Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer seem to be more than just vacationing buddies, as of late, they’re writing partners! It even gets better than that, the project they’ve been tearing through is a vehicle that will put the goofy, hilarious duo together on-screen, as well, sisters at that! Is this a new incarnation of the Tina Fey/Amy Poehler dynamic?

Film Review: ‘Monkey Kingdom’!

Janet W., Here…

fbeef64b6ab236c4821a3a215cf81ef81e8c2859

Monkeys, Tina Fey, and a series of calamitous frolicking couldn’t be anything, but a delightful time.  Disneynature’s Monkey Kingdom follows Maya, a lowborn female monkey, through her journey to challenge the caste system.  The highborn, The Sisterhood (Queens), three female monkeys with red splattered faces, is given the best food, lodging, grooming, obedience, and fear.  Slightly lower than The Queens is Raja, the highest born alpha male monkey.  Far underneath The Queens and Raja and still other levels of lieutenants and random monkeys is sweet Maya.  Like any human would, Maya endeavors to make a better life for herself and was fearless in her pursuit of it.

Riding high on the coat tails of Tina Fey’s final Golden Globe’s hosting gig, Netflix has released the first trailer for their new show from Fey and Robert Carlock (writer for ‘Friends‘, ‘Saturday Night Live‘ and ‘30 Rock‘). ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt‘ was originally conceived for a run on NBC, but Netflix swooped in for the rights once NBC backed out.

Interview with James C. Leary!!

As a huge fan of Buffy, I couldn’t believe it when my friend Michael Champion posted a picture from DCC Fan Appreciation Day with James C. Leary, known for his role as “Clem” on seasons six and seven of Buffy the  Vampire Slayer. I thought to myself, “How does he know THAT guy?” So I did what any good Fangirl would do, I stalked his Facebook page. Turns out his path and mine were about to cross in a seriously awesome way- James works in Austin, at company run my by, none other than my brother. This was my IN, my way to a dialogue. My message to him on FB starts, “So do you know Josef Hall?”

Blu-ray Review: ‘Muppets Most Wanted’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 14th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

MuppetsMostWantedBlurayCombo_jpg_rgb

THE FILM

It’s very difficult to find a sequel that’s as good as the original. There aren’t a lot out there that are great sequels, but when they do come along, they are remembered forever. And maybe what worked so well for the first Muppet film that starred Jason Segel and Amy Adams is that it had a human element to it, and didn’t just follow the Muppets around. That’s not to say that this sequel ‘Muppets: Most Wanted‘ isn’t a lot of fun and very entertaining. It is, but it doesn’t have that magic that the last one had.

‘X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST’ – AN EDITORIAL!!

by Justin Cline on Jun 3rd, 2014

Justin C. here…

X-Men-Days-of-Future-Past-Movie-Poster

This is not a review; this is a plea.

As of this posting, the Rotten Tomatoes score for X-Men: Days of Future Past is holding strong at 92%. And while it would seem that a score that high indicates the filmmakers got nearly everything right—in as much as anyone ever can—, I’d like to offer up a few suggestions for the next film, tentatively titled X-Men: Apocalypse.

Film Review: ‘Admission’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 20th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

url-3

Tina Fey and Paul Rudd star in this rocky comedy from ‘American Pie‘ director Paul Weitz, which jumps between being a heartfelt drama and gross out comedy far too often. Based on the novel of the same name by Jean Hanff Korelitz and adapted to a screenplay by Karen Croner, ‘Admission‘ tells a tale on the ins and outs of being accepted into college, especially one of the most notable and best colleges in America. Even with top notch talent rounding out this little film, I only expect modern returns at the box office due to its subject matter.

Hi, Bryan Here….

globes-drink

The Golden Globes were last night and Tina Fey and Amy Poehler killed it. They were amazing.  Even former president Bill Clinton showed up to talk about Spielberg’s ‘Lincoln‘.  Even though I really liked the film ‘Argo‘, I was shocked when it won best film and director for Ben Affleck. I was happy to see ‘Django Unchained‘ win for best supporting actor for Christoph Waltz and screenplay for Tarantino. If this is any pre-cursor to the Oscars, I’d be completely let down if ‘Argo‘ takes it all.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great film, but not the best film of the year.  I expect it to and want it to win the best adapted screenplay.  Just my opinion.  Below are the full results from last night’s show.

Hi, Bryan Here….

The nominations came in this morning and needless to say, I went into a fit of rage.  I mean I was so mad, I almost wrote a letter.  After going through the list of nominees, while some of the noms were well deserved, many were not, especially in the FILM categories.  There needs to be a serious uprooting process at the Golden Globes where everyone involved in voting needs to be replaced by others who know what they’re doing.

2012 Emmy Award Winners!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 24th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Below is the list of the winners for the 2012 Prime-Time Emmy Award Winners.  I don’t  see how ‘Modern Family’ and ‘Two and Half Men’ win anything.  They shouldn’t win any kind of award when they go up against shows like ‘Mad Men’, ‘Game of Thrones’, and ‘Breaking Bad’.  The Emmy judges need to be fired and never allowed to pick winners ever again.  However, much congratulations to ‘Homeland’, ‘Downton Abbey’, Aaron Paul, ‘Veep’, and ‘American Horror Story’
