Jonah Hill: His best performances so far

I don’t think that Jonah Hill quite gets the appreciation that he deserves within the industry. Yes, he’s been cited by Oscar twice with Academy Award nominations in Best Supporting Actor (the first for Moneyball and the second for The Wolf of Wall Street) and has anchored a hugely successful[...]

The Ten Best Performances from Adam Sandler

If you ask me, Adam Sandler gets a bad rap these days. Sure, he doesn’t always challenge himself with the comedic projects he chooses, but when he picks a drama or a dramedy, he’s almost always aces at it. I happen to mostly enjoy Sandler’s work, even when it’s far[...]

Judd Apatow hopes to tickle the Academy’s funny bone with “Trainwreck”

Making a comedy that gets recognized by the Oscars is an almost impossible pursuit. Best Picture nominees that are comedies are few and far between, let alone winners. Still, there are some filmmakers who traffic in laughs and you really feel can make a mark with the Academy. Judd Apatow[...]

Spotlight on the Stars: Adam Sandler

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to sort of go back to the start of the series and take a look at someone who doesn’t get the respect that they deserve from the masses. Today, that person is Adam Sandler, one of the kings of comedy who also has[...]

Jonah Hill: Spotlight on the Stars

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to take a look at a bit of a new A-lister, and that happens to be Jonah Hill. For some, he’s just another Judd Apatow guy, but realistically, he’s much more than that. He’s branched out on his own with a rather hilarious[...]

Seth MacFarlane: Our Next A-list Comedy Filmmaker?

We’ve known for years now that Seth MacFarlane was one of the kings of animated television comedy, but it was only a few years ago that we saw him conquer cinemas as well with his directorial debut Ted. The film was hilarious, clever, and better received by critics than anyone[...]

“Neighbors” conquers this weekend’s box office. Starring Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne and Zac Efron, it is the story about a couple with a newborn baby facing unexpected difficulties after they are forced to live next to a fraternity house. “Not only is he (Seth Rogen) one of the biggest comedy stars[...]

Spotlight on the Stars: Seth Rogen

Here we go with another installment of my Spotlight on the Stars series (the return of it too after a few weeks spent looking at more under the radar folks). As a refresher, each week I’ll look at an A-list actor/actress/filmmaker that I’d like to celebrate in some kind of[...]

Thinking Out Loud: Who Could/Should Direct Ghostbusters III?

For this weekend’s edition of Thinking Out Loud, I only really have one topic in mind, and it’s on the direction of the Ghostbusters franchise. With the recent passing of Harold Ramis and the even more recent announcement that Ivan Reitman won’t be directing the in development sequel/reboot, I’ve been[...]

Seth Rogen, Barbara Streisand playing mother and son in new comedy

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: Seth Rogen has had some unique co-stars over the years, from a stoned James Franco (“Pineapple Express”) and a dying Adam Sandler (“Funny People”) to international singing superstar Jay Chou (“The Green Hornet”). But we haven’t seen anything yet. Rogen will team with silver screen legend Barbara Streisand for[...]
