‘Detective Pikachu’ Featurette: Ryan Reynolds Abandoned His Daughters to Play the Pokemon

We’re as surprised as anyone that Detective Pikachu actually looks like it could be a fun action adventure romp this summer. Some of that is likely thanks to Ryan Reynolds providing the voice of the investigative Pokémon who normally only says his own name . But it wasn’t easy for the Deadpool star to go from being a mouthy, meta mercenary to playing a cute, little, yellow furball. In fact, as a new Detective Pikachu featurette reveals, Reynolds went so far as to disappear into the role, so m...

Netflix's 'Fyre' director hits back at Hulu's 'whitewashing' criticism and says the Fyre Festival founder wanted $125,000 for an interview

Netflix's "Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened" director Chris Smith talked to Business Insider about the one-year process to make a documentary about the doomed Fyre Festival. "Fyre" is one of two documentaries out this week that look at the festival. The other is Hulu's "Fyre Fraud." Smith defended his movie's objectivity, despite Hulu's claims that the movie isn't objective because of the involvement of Jerry Media, which handled social media for the Fyre Festival. Smith also said ...

Watch this trailer for the new Fyre Festival documentary!

The Fyre Festival documentary premieres on Netflix on January 18 and I can't wait. If you remember the Fyre Festival, you definitely weren't there... because, y'know, it didn't happen. And I'm glad, because if it did, we wouldn't have this fantastically ridiculous story. From NetFlix: Created by Billy McFarland and rapper Ja Rule, Fyre Festival was promoted as a luxury music festival on a private island in the Bahamas featuring bikini-clad supermodels, A-List musical performances and posh a...

‘Fyre’ Trailer: Netflix’s Documentary About the Music Festival’s Legendary Failure

Where were you in April of 2017? For your sake, I hope you weren’t on a private island in the Bahamas attending the infamous Fyre Festival, but if you did happen to be there, maybe we’ll see you in the background of Fyre, a new Netflix documentary that provides a first-hand account of the legendarily terrible music festival. Organizers promised attendees they’d be a part of an epic, unforgettable experience, and they certainly were – but far from the one they expected. Fyre Festival Movie Tr...

‘Fyre’ Trailer: Netflix Takes You Inside the Greatest Party that Never Happened, The Fyre Festival

The Fyre Festival was sold as a luxury music festival hosted on a private island where guests could live like rock stars – for a hefty price. Once attendees arrived, however, chaos reigned. Instead of fancy villas and gourmet meals, they were greeted with tents and – perhaps worst of all – cheese sandwiches. A scam was afoot, and lawsuits followed. Netflix will take viewers inside the disastrous non-festival with the new documentary Fyre, hitting the streaming service in January. Watch the Fyre...

Beyond a Means to an End

If you were raised in a typical western family in a typical western society (and likely these days even if you weren’t), the expectations for how your life will go are pretty typical and generic. You’ll start school at a relatively young age, progress through the grades, and eventually graduate from high school after about a dozen years. After you graduate from high school, you might attend some form of higher education, like a college or university, or you might go to a trade or technical scho...

‘The Truman Show’ at 20: Jim Carrey’s Best Movie is Still Delightful and Philosophically Rich

In 1994, Jim Carrey broke big, starring in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, The Mask, and Dumb and Dumber, three box office toppers that catapulted the rubbery-faced comedian to global superstardom. There’s an entire generation of kids that went around quoting those movies, repeating Ace’s catchphrase of “Alrighty then!” while affecting the same overly confident voice that Carrey had first workshopped as a different character in sketches on the TV show In Living Color. One thing Carrey wasn’t w...

‘Dark Crimes’ Trailer: Jim Carrey is Back, And He’s Deadly Serious

Jim Carrey hasn’t taken the lead a film in four years, but he’s back with Dark Crimes. The film, based on an actual murder mystery, has Carrey in serious mode, playing a cop with a beard trying to solve a murder. Watch the Dark Crimes trailer below. I’m not quite sure what to make of this. On one hand, I’m glad to see Jim Carrey back in action, and I like it when Carrey shows off his dramatic chops. On the other hand, this trailer makes Dark Crimes look like a cross between The Girl With the...

Actor Jim Carrey says he's deleting his Facebook page and dumping stock over Russian election meddling, and he wants you to do the same (FB)

Actor Jim Carrey tweeted that he plans to dump his Facebook stock and delete his Facebook page because, he said, the social network "profited" from Russian interference in US elections.  Facebook testified to Congress in October that Russian-backed content reached as many as 126 million Americans through its network during and after the 2016 presidential election.    Actor Jim Carrey tweeted Tuesday that he plans to dump his Facebook stock and delete his Facebook page because, he said, the s...

The inside story of a bizarre Netflix documentary showing Jim Carrey in character as Andy Kaufman for 4 months, both on screen and off

The Netflix documentary "Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond" is a behind-the-scenes look at Jim Carrey's journey to become Andy Kaufman in the movie "Man on the Moon." Carrey was in character as Kaufman for the entire four-month shoot both on screen and off. "Jim & Andy" director Chris Smith spent eight months editing the 100 hours of footage for the movie and two days interviewing Carrey about the experience. It’s fitting that Spike Jonze would call documentary filmmaker Chris Smith to take on th...

How Pixar’s Day of the Dead-themed ‘Coco’ celebrates Mexican culture and pushes back against ‘state of fear’

Gael Garcia Bernal, one of the stars of the new Pixar animated film “Coco,” is tapping his feet rhythmically and singing “shak-a-ta-ka-ka- shak-a-ta-ka-ka” to give me a taste of a type of traditional Mexican music. “It’s a beautiful type of music called son jarocho, and I enjoy playing it,” he explains, noting the folk tune “La Bamba” is a classic example of the style. “It comes from the Caribbean part of Mexico around Veracruz, and it is done with small guitars (jaranas).

‘Jim & Andy’ almost seems like it’s a put-on about Jim Carrey’s Andy Kaufman film

After he got the part as Andy Kaufman in the biopic of the comedian’s life – the 1999 film “Man on the Moon” – Jim Carrey says he started talking telepathically to people until one day the late comedian’s spirit showed up and took over and played the role. Chris Smith’s documentary “Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond – Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton,” debuting Friday on Netflix, tells the story of two unique and extreme comic talents.
