LAMB Review 'Weirdly Special Movie'

THE DEATH OF STALIN Movie Review

The one-liners fly as fast as political fortunes fall in this uproarious, wickedly irreverent satire from Armando Iannucci (Veep, In the Loop). Moscow, 1953: when tyrannical dictator Joseph Stalin drops dead, his parasitic cronies square off in a frantic power struggle to be the next Soviet leader. Among the contenders are the dweeby Georgy Malenkov ( Jeffrey Tambor ), the wily Nikita Khrushchev ( Steve Buscemi ), and the sadistic secret police chief Lavrentiy Beria ( Simon Russell Beale ). But as they bumble, brawl, and backstab their way to the top, just who is running the government? Combining palace intrigue with rapid-fire farce, this audacious comedy is a bitingly funny takedown of bureaucratic dysfunction performed to the hilt by a sparkling ensemble cast.

Arrested Development Season 5 Is Happening

When Jason Bateman tweeted earlier this week that he'd made a deal to return for a fifth season of Arrested Development , it made us hope that an official announcement about the show would swiftly follow. And, like a one-handed man trying to avoid a loose seal, it has arrived. The pieces have apparently been mostly in place for a while now, at least behind the scenes, with creator Mitch Hurwitz laying out the plan for the new season a year ago, has kicked off the writers' room and was mostly just waiting for a busy working cast (including Bateman , Michael Cera, Jeffrey Tambor, Jessica Walter, Will Arnett, Tony Hale, Portia de Rossi, David Cross and Alia Shawkat ) to be available. "In talks with Netflix we all felt that that stories about a narcissistic, erratically behaving family in the building business – and their desperate abuses of power – are really underrepresented on TV these days," Hurwitz says. "I am so grateful to them and to 20th TV for making t

Movie Review: #TheAccountant

The Accountant is a wild, whipsmart slap in the face with a ledger. And we're OK with that. Review by Matt Cummings The fall movie season is already shaping up to be far better than this Summer's bomb-fest. Ben Affleck's The Accountant is another welcomed shot-in-the-arm, a wild but intelligent action film that features a great cast, some terrific comedy, and matches our need for amazing violence and solid storytelling. This action-thriller's premise is fairly unique: a high-function autistic child becomes the hugely successful accountant/soldier Christian Wolff (Affleck) who's worked with some of the top bad guys to clean up their books. This draws the attention of retiring Treasury agent Ray King (JK Simmons) and a fellow volun-told (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) who's forced to uncover Wolff's wild past. As he investigates a tech company's suspect books, Wolff soon realizes that his work endangers the life of Dana (Anna Kendrick), the empl

With fun tools you can create and share some hair-raising Trolls characters! Trollify Yourself HERE: www.dreamworks.com/trollify From the creators of Shrek comes DreamWorks Animation's Trolls, a smart, funny, and irreverent comedy about the search for happiness, and just how far some will go to get it. This hilarious film transports audiences to a colorful, wondrous world populated by the overly optimistic Trolls, with a constant dance in their step and a song on their lips, and the comically pessimistic Bergens, who are only happy when they have trolls in their stomachs. After the Bergens invade Troll Village, Poppy (Kendrick), the happiest Troll ever born, and the overly-cautious curmudgeonly Branch (Timberlake) set off on a journey to rescue her friends. Together, t

New Trailer For The Accountant Starring Ben Affleck

The new trailer for The Accountant , starring Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey Tambor, John Lithgow and directed by Gavin O’Connor. Christian Wolff (Affleck) is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town CPA office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world’s most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department’s Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King (J.K. Simmons), starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk (Anna Kendrick) has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise. Please Leave A Comment-
