TV, Interrupted: Why Freaks And Geeks' Rock 'N Roll Spirit Will Never Die

(Welcome to TV, Interrupted, a series where the /Film team remembers, eulogizes, and makes a case for the revival of TV shows we loved that were canceled far too soon.)When it comes to lamenting the untimely end of a beloved TV show, "Freaks and Geeks" is the enduring example of the powers that be carelessly extinguishing lightning in a bottle while it's still white hot. NBC only broadcast 12 of the 18 episodes in the show's first season before unceremoniously canceling it, though "Freaks and Ge...

Alyssa Milano Teases Who's The Boss Sequel Show

A "Who's the Boss?" sequel was announced back in August of 2020, and it was reportedly going to give us a look at what's happened in the lives of Samantha Micelli (Alyssa Milano) and her dad Tony Micelli (Tony Danza) in the years since the show went off the air in 1992. Milano and Danza both posted about it on social media at the time.

The Evil Dead Easter Egg You May Not Have Noticed In Sam Raimi's Spider-Man

Comic book movies are always full of Easter eggs, especially Marvel movies. Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" films are no exception. You'll find decades of superhero history scattered throughout, with subtle nods to several comic book heroes and villains. There's even a reference to their old rivals DC as Peter Parker shouts out classic superhero catchphrases while perfecting his web-slinging.

The Best Characters In Scream, Ranked

Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett's "Scream" (2022) explores many themes -- elevated horror, "requels," the entitlement that underscores modern fandoms -- and it does so through its characters. This is notable, because it wasn't a given. The third film in Wes Craven's seminal slasher franchise all but abandoned its protagonists for rapid-fire plot points and Creed synchs. Other recent entries in blockbuster franchises that originated in the '80s and '90s rolled out old dramatis persones as...

Most Memorable Moments From Disney+ Marvel Shows In 2021

With four theatrical releases, 2021 wasn't quite the "year off" for the Marvel Cinematic Universe that 2020 was, but it was the year the MCU's storytelling baton passed from its films to its streaming series on Disney+. With five shows totaling 36 episodes, these departures from the cinematic format allowed the MCU to delve into deeper, more long-form storytelling while still setting the stage for its oft-delayed films to come. Characters who'd been relegated to supporting roles in ensemble cast...

The Captain Marvel Scene You Likely Didn't Know Was Improvised

Actors in the Marvel Cinematic Universe are famously known for their improvisation skills. From Robert Downey Jr.'s "I love you 3000," to Tom Holland's "I don't want to go," and Dave Bautista's "Why is Gamora?" there are plenty of moments in the MCU where actors ad-libbed their way out of a scene.Here's another! "Captain Marvel," which tells the story of Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), a U.S. Air Force officer who gets her powers after an experimental light-speed engine test goes terribly wrong, ha...

Easter Eggs You May Have Missed In Scream

As we've come to know over the years, one of the best parts of the "Scream" franchise is the meta element. The focus on the "rules" of horror movies and the commentary on the genre at large is what makes the franchise so lovable, and to see ourselves as fans reflected back at us in such an iconic and memorable way is what keeps us coming back. So, naturally, they decided to up the meta-ante in 2022's "Scream," which arrived in theaters this weekend.And because they decided to up the meta-ante th...

Quantum Leap Sequel Series In The Works, Wants To Change History For The Better, Etc.

Call Ziggy, because we're going time-traveling. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC has greenlit the pilot for a sequel to the 1989 series, which starred Scott Bakula as Dr. Sam Beckett, who was destined to "leap" through time (and bodies) forever after an experiment gone wrong, desperately just trying to get back to his own life. The series ran for five seasons and ended with Sam still lost in time and space, leaving plenty of room for a continuation. In the years since, many fans have jok...

The role of Hermione Granger didn't just launch Watson's acting career, but made it, as she spent a decade filming the eight-movie series. In the following decade, the young Brit then proved she could do more than play a teenage wizard, appearing in almost a dozen movies and trying her hand at different types of characters and genres, building on the reputation that Hermione gave her.Acting isn't Watson's only passion, though.

Disney+ Marvel Cinematic Universe Shows Ranked

Scream Review: A Very Funny, Very Bloody Sequel

Someone has taken their love of scary movies one step too far ... again. The fifth entry in any horror series is bound to be questionable; what more is there to say? But you can't keep a good franchise down, and "Scream" has returned to spill some more blood. A lot more blood, in fact. "Scream," the fifth film in the series, but one that adopts the trend of jettisoning a number altogether and confusingly using the original film's title, is set 25 years after the events of the first flick, and on...

Surprisingly, Psycho Was The First Film To Ever Show This

"It is required that you see 'Psycho' from the very beginning!" When audiences first took their seats, it was clear that "Psycho" was going to be something worth talking about. Taking a cue from the William Castle playbook of gimmicks, director Alfred Hitchcock introduced a "no late admission" policy, with a poster showing the director pointing sternly at his watch (via CFI). To ramp up anticipation of the terrifying material within the film, he also hired "nurses" to stand around in cinema lobb...

How Robin Williams Changed The Voice Acting Business As We Know It

If you have spent an unreasonable amount of time over the past two years stuck indoors with kids, you'll have no doubt watched a ridiculous amount of computer animated content on Netflix or other streaming services. There seems to be an unending supply of it, and even the most third-rate efforts have well-known names voicing characters (here's looking at you, Chevy Chase in "Doogal"). As a result, my wife and I spend much of the film's running time asking each other: "Who's doing the voice of th...
