Fargo TV trailer

Fargo, the series, follows in the footsteps of Fargo, the movie, with the blessing of Ethan and Joel Coen. This isn’t a strict remake, but rather a new “true crime” story that is very much in the vein of the Coen Brothers movie, and which shares the same Minnesota setting and collection of friendly/quirky accents. That said, this new trailer shows that Martin Freeman seems to be doing his darndest to channel William H. Macy’s performance.

Some of the rest of the cast (which includes Billy Bob Thornton, Allison TolmanColin HanksBob OdenkirkKate WalshAdam GoldbergOliver PlattGlenn HowertonJordan PeeleKeegan-Michael KeyJoey King, and Julie Ann Emery) also has their own Coen debt to pay. Whether this will end up being able to stand on its own two feet is open to question now, but this trailer is entertaining enough that we’ll be watching the first episodes of the 10-episode series on FX.

Pulp Fiction Live Read

There’s absolutely no need to touch Quentin Tarantino‘s Pulp Fiction. Built around an Academy Award winning screenplay, the film is pretty much perfect from beginning to end. It teems with exquisite detail as performances and dialogue tell interweaving stories of crime and craziness. A reinforcement of that absolute brilliance was the main thing I took out of the latest Film Independent at LACMA Live Read, which took place February 20 in Los Angeles. Director Evan Goldberg (This is the End) subbed for Jason Reitman and assembled an eclectic, star-studded cast to read Tarantino’s masterwork. It was a two and a half hour celebration of Pulp Fiction‘s perfection.

While no one could ever replace the iconic cast of John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman and so many others, stars like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill and Lizzie Caplan laughed, imitated and sometimes stumbled through the script with excitement and reverence. Along the way, a few Easter Eggs were uncovered, alternate interpretations attempted and much fun was had. Read about the live read below. Read More »

Key & Peele is one of the funniest shows on TV right now, and one of the good recurring bits features the two comedians, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, playing a pair of valet attendants who are obsessed with Liam Neesons. Yeah, “Neesons.” the simple mention of Neeson’s name is enough to send the two movie lovers into slow-mo scene recreations and apoplectic paroxysms of delight.

You had to know these guys would meet the actor eventually. Now that he’s got a new movie to promote (Non Stop, opening February 28) the actor ended up caught between the two super-fans. Watch the skit below. Read More »
