TV Review: ‘Into the Dark: The Body’ on Hulu

TV Review: ‘Into the Dark: The Body’ on Hulu
The phenomenon of treating anthology series as collections of films is a fairly recent invention — episodes of “Sherlock” and “Black Mirror” have won the past three best TV movie Emmys, beating out genuine-article made-for-tv movies. It’s easy to be dubious about the treatment of these shows, whose episodes share a united sensibility as well as overarching themes and, in “Sherlock’s” case, characters, as stand-alone pieces of cinema. But with its first installment, debuting Oct. 5 after screening at the Los Angeles Film Festival Sept. 21, Hulu’s new anthology “Into the Dark” comes far closer to looking like a new film franchise than its contemporaries.

‘Valley of the Boom’ Creator and Cast on Telling the True Story of the Internet With Crazy Weird Twists

‘Valley of the Boom’ Creator and Cast on Telling the True Story of the Internet With Crazy Weird Twists
The story of how the rise of the Internet changed the world is an important one, but it can also be a little dry. That’s why creator Matthew Carnahan, when tackling the subject for the upcoming Nat Geo series “Valley of the Boom,” decided to have some fun with it.

“I’m interested in the subject matter, but not that interested,” he explained during a panel at the Tribeca TV festival, where in the two episodes screened, the story of three rising companies during the 1990s tech boom was told with documentary interviews, scripted reenactments, moments of breaking the fourth wall, interpretative dance, and a rap battle. “I just like to play with that stuff, always, and the prankster-ism of the piece is all in service of bringing the audience in on the fun, rather than it being this dry observational experience.”

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Ryan Eggold

Ryan Eggold really seems like a guy that enjoys being prepared and is all about the moment and stretching it out. That could be misconstrued but quite honestly the guy has an outfit for just about every occasion and keeps different sets of clothes for different roles if he happens to need them. All talk of eccentricities aside, that’s a guy that likes to be prepared and doesn’t throw much out if he figures that he’ll need it. You could chalk this up to wanting to be the best he can be at every possible moment but you could also

Does anyone realize that we haven’t seen Yoda in a Star Wars movie since 2005, barring his return in The Last Jedi?

Meryl Streep Wants Her Best Friend Tracey Ullman to Run for President

The Season 3 premiere of “Tracey Ullman’s Show” at Tribeca TV turned into a major lovefest between two legends on Friday evening in New York. Introduced by Tribeca founder Jane Rosenthal as “Tracey Ullman’s very best dearest friend,” Meryl Streep joined Ullman for a post-screening Q&A that covered not just the breadth of Ullman’s career, but the deep bond between the two actors.

“I met you when I was 32,” Streep said, “and I said to my husband, ‘I think I’ve made a new friend.’ It’s hard to make a new friend when you’re old and famous.”

The pair met when Ullman, then 21, and Streep were cast in the 1985 film “Plenty.” They have remained close since — as evidenced by a natural banter that sometimes slipped into the pair singing together on stage. “We had babies at the same time, shared life experiences,” Ullman said. “People ask me,

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Ted Levine

Ted Levine is one of those guys that can be really, really scary or really kind of warm and cuddly, though the former is usually easier to see than the latter. In truth he likes being the nice guy despite all the pictures you see and the roles he takes on. He’s been a part of Hollywood for a while now and while he’s been seen as kind of the creepy guy that people don’t fully understand he’s also been one of the better actors around since he’s usually fully capable of taking on any role that he can get

The Philadelphia Story: Katharine Hepburn’s Hollywood Comeback Story

When talking about Star Power in the context of cinema, no light burned brighter than Katharine Hepburn. Her star simply shined the brightest in a galaxy full of them. A prime example of this can be illustrated by the 1940 romantic screwball comedy “The Philadelphia Story”. Even when flanked by two of the most popular movie stars of all time, Cary Grant and Jimmy Stewart, it is Hepburn who leaves the lasting impression on the audience. What many people do not know however is that “The Philadelphia Story”, in addition to being considered a classic piece of American cinema, represented

‘Maniac’ Review: Breaking Down an Enticing Ending with Many Meanings and One Powerful Message — Spoilers

[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for the Netflix limited series, “Maniac,” including the ending.]

Maniac” is an experiment in and of itself. The warping genres, tones, and story structure within creator Patrick Somerville and director Cary Fukunaga’s 10-part limited series make it a story that demands close inspection, while Annie (Emma Stone) and Owen (Jonah Hill) team up for a moving story that helps to justify the time needed to study it.

Is it successful? Yes and no, but more often leaning toward the former. As noted in IndieWire’s spoiler-free review, “Maniac” lacks the finesse to effortlessly convey its deeper meanings, but the onscreen strain is intriguing in its own right. By the end of the series, many of the pieces click into place — just not in the way you might think. The core narrative wraps up, sure, but little conspicuous clues and seemingly offhand stories (that could be forgotten in the swirl of information) earn callbacks,

Is it Possible We’ll Ever See a “The Brazilian Job” Movie?

At this point it’s kind of easy to state that not a lot of people, if any, remember that there was once a plan to create a sequel to The Italian Job. The Brazilian Job would have likely been kind of the same in many regards but at the very least it would have pulled together most if not all of the original cast. Obviously Donald Sutherland and Edward Norton wouldn’t have been there unless it had been made into a prequel but as it was supposed to be a sequel there’s not much chance of this. Instead the sequel
