Chicago Film Fest 2018: This Changes Everything

Addressing the gender disparity that troubles Hollywood, This Changes Everything is one of the most important documentaries of the year. I can’t exactly point to when all the focus started turning to women directors not getting the same opportunities as men.  That being said, This Changes Everything is equally important to the Amy Adrion-directed Half the Picture.  This two films go hand in hand with a similar focus on women directors. “The door has to…

Ghostbusters: Answer the Call

Starring four of the funniest women on earth, Ghostbusters: Answer the Call honors the spirit of the 1984 classic film. While it would have been nice to have seen the likes of Peter Venkman, Raymond Stantz, and Winston Zeddemore pass the baton to a new generation, Harold Ramis’ death in 2014 would forever change the face of the franchise.  Never mind just how hard it is getting Bill Murray to sign on board for anything.  With that out…

Freaks and Geeks: The Documentary is Nostalgic

Freaks and Geeks: The Documentary is the perfect way to offer closure to the series should there never be a reboot.  I said as much on Twitter during the world premiere at Tribeca in April. In just over an hour, Brent Hodge manages to reunite the cast and crew of Freaks and Geeks by way of contemporary interviews while revisiting the set of the 1999-2000 series.  As the series did so on September 25, 1999,…

Tribeca 2018: Song of Back and Neck

Song of Back and Neck, the feature debut for Paul Lieberstein, tackles both romance and pain. Fred Trolleycar (Paul Lieberstein) has somehow managed to be cursed with the worst combination of back and neck pain of all time.  It’s what Dr. Street (Paul Feig) describes as “the trifecta of back and neck pain.”  It’s so bad that the paralegal is able to get ready for work by crawling on the floor.  Fred is a 25-year…

Comic Con: New Ghostbusters film coming in 2019

At a Comic Con panel on Thursday, Ivan Reitman announced that a new Ghostbusters movie is coming in 2019. This announcement comes over a month after Dan Aykroyd said last month that Sony lost too much money with the all-female reboot and a sequel would be unlikely as a result. The Ghostbusters panel, titled Ghostbusters 101: A Ghostbusters Panel of Biblical Proportions!, featured Reitman alongside IDW’s Erik Burnham, Dan Schoening, and Tom Waltz. The Ghostbusters:…

Ghostbusters: No Reboot Sequel per Dan Aykroyd, Paul Feig blasted

Dan Aykroyd broke the news on Sunday morning that there will not be a sequel to the Ghostbusters reboot. Aykroyd made the announcement during an appearance on Sunday Brunch on Britain’s Channel 4.  Aykroyd was careful not to mention director Paul Feig’s name. “The director, he spent too much on it and he didn’t shoot scenes we suggested to him, Aykroyd said.  “Several scenes that were going to be needed, he said, ‘No, we don’t…
