darkwing duck reboot

Darkwing Duck reboot is destined for streaming service Disney+, and hopefully, it’ll be really gritty and violent (it won’t). The original show ran from 1991-1992 and featured Drake Mallard/Darkwing Duck as he balanced his home life with his crimefighting. While the series was assumed by everyone (including me) to be a spin-off of DuckTales, creator Tad Stones said in 2016 that he believes the shows exist in different universes, because nothing makes sense anymore. That said, Darkwing Duck appeared as a character in the recent DuckTales reboot, so I guess they do exist in the same universe now? Maybe? Someone help me here.

In Last Action Hero, a kid gets sucked into the world of his favorite action movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. But what if you ended up trapped in a horror movie instead? That’s exactly what Lionsgate will ask with their acquisition of the original horror script Video Nasty.

Video Nasty will focus on three teens who rent a cursed VHS tape and they end up stuck in a 1980s slasher movie that threatens to trap them forever. That sounds awesome. Read More »

The Making of An American Pickle

Plenty of actors have played multiple characters that appear on screen together in the movies. Eddie Murphy in The Nutty Professor, Mike Myers in Austin Powers, and Michael Keaton in Multiplicity are just a few of the more famous examples. Traditionally this is achieved through a split screen process where the actor shoots the same scene multiple times as each different character on the same day and uses stand-ins for over-the-shoulder shots. But in the case of Seth Rogen‘s dual roles in An American Pickle, a revealing new featurette shows how director Brandon Trost took a far more ambitious route to pull it off. Read More »

Pineapple Express 2

Pineapple Express was one of Seth Rogen‘s biggest hits, raking in over $101 million worldwide on a budget of just $27 million. So you would think that Sony Pictures would have been chomping at the bit to get a sequel off the ground. Well, at one point the studio was very interested in making Pineapple Express 2, but in one of those reminders that the movie business is more about the business and less about the movie, Sony balked at the budget proposed by producer Judd Apatow.

an american pickle review

For all its occasional bursts of fleeting beauty, the world is an inherently lonely place. And even those who prefer to remain loners can, on occasion, seek out the warmth of connection, however brief or fleeting. That search for connection is hidden within An American Pickle, a sweet, silly movie that never quite decides what it wants to be, but not for lack of trying. Once you move beyond the goofy premise – which involves a man brined in a pickle vat for 100 years – you find a film filled with characters who seek that connection; that spark. Characters who need one another, whether they like it or not.
