TV Review: Lethal Weapon "Pilot"

I'm getting too bored for this shit. Review by Brandon Wolfe Though it was far from the first buddy movie, Lethal Weapon sort of perfected the form. So many of its particulars weren’t that remarkable on paper. The partners being separated by race, age and temperament, yet forging a bond all the same, all of this was old-hat even in 1987. The alchemy of Lethal Weapon ’s success came down to the idiosyncrasies of its players. Shane Black’s witty, gritty script, Richard Donner’s expert craftsmanship and, above all, the incomparable chemistry between stars Mel Gibson and Danny Glover. Lethal Weapon was funny, brutal, exciting and heartwarming in equal measure, and gave us two characters whose camaraderie was so engaging that they became the gold standard all buddy-cop duos would forever be held to. The adventures of Martin Riggs and Roger Murtaugh continued on for three more films, the last of which arrived way back in 1998. The characters have laid dormant in the nearly two decad

#DamonWayans Will Play Murtaugh In #LethalWeapon TV Series

After lengthy negotiations, Fox and Warner Bros. TV have closed a pilot-order deal for Lethal Weapon , an hourlong series based on the buddy cop action comedy movies that starred Mel Gibson as Martin Riggs and Danny Glover as Roger Murtaugh. In Living Color alum Damon Wayans Sr . is set to play Murtaugh in the remake, with Charlie’s Angels helmer McG set to direct the pilot for Warner Bros. TV. The Riggs role has not been cast yet. Written by former Chuck executive producer and Forever creator Matt Miller, Lethal Weapon, like WBTV’s Rush Hour series for CBS, is a relatively straight remake featuring the movies’ central characters. The feature franchise kicked off with Homicide Sgt. Murtaugh (Glover), who recently celebrated his 50th birthday, being partnered with the suicidal and highly volatile ex-U.S. Army Special Forces soldier-turned-LAPD Narcotics Sgt. Riggs (Gibson), who had been reassigned to homicide after a psychotic episode on the job as he deals with grief following t

Movie Review: How To Be Single

Large ensemble group romance roulette wheel. Review by Beevers There are times that you feel that you have found ‘The One’, and it become clear you will both settle down and be forever together. Other times, it is nothing more than a simple one-night-stand. That is the perfect description of “How to be Single”. It is more than fine for the evening, but you know you will be moving on in the morning. Alice (Dakota Johnson) has been with her boyfriend Josh (Nicholas Braun) all through college. But now Alice feels that she has neglected her own wants and dreams and she wants out for awhile. Josh objects, but Alice goes to New York to stay with her sister Meg (Leslie Mann). Meg has been a doctor for many years and never thought of having a family herself. Delivering all the other babies makes her want one. She gets clinically ‘knocked up’ so she can give birth. But after she starts to show, she meets a younger man Ken (Jake Lacy). Ken falls for Meg, even with the extra sid
