Tracey Ullman on Playing British 'National Treasures,' Powerful Women

Tracey Ullman on Playing British 'National Treasures,' Powerful Women
Tracey Ullman has been creating characters ­– and a string of successful shows, including Tracey Takes On… (HBO, 1996-99) and Tracey Ullman's State of the Union (Showtime, 2008-10) – for decades. But it was only recently that she's really embraced impersonating celebrities and politicians. For the second season of Tracey Ullman's Show, which originally aired on the BBC and is now available on HBO, she's back with her impressions of a rascally Dame Judi Dench (and her frenemy Dame Maggie Smith), a sexy singing Angela Merkel, and a version of Jerry Hall that will make you squirm.

‘The Jetsons’ to Make the Jump from Animation to Live-Action in ABC Series

Two of the most famous families in TV history happen to be animated characters from extreme ends of the timeline. Hanna-Barbera's Stone Age family The Flintstones debuted on ABC in 1960, followed by the Space Age family The Jetsons which debuted on the network in 1962, ABC's first program to be broadcast in color. The two hit shows appeared in a crossover animated TV movie The Jetsons Meet the Flintstones in 1987 but only The Flintstones found itself getting the live-action feature film treatment in 1994 and 2000. Now, The Jetsons are getting a similar opportunity …

Learn To Make Homer Simpson’s Patented Space Age Out-Of-This-World Moon Waffles

Binging with Babish is back! This time Andrew Rea is taking on The Simpsons and teaching us to make Homer Simpson’s legendary Moon Waffles. While there are a number of recipes to choose from with regard to legendary Simpsons concoctions I think that Rea has got himself off on the right footing with this selection. Here’s the video descripton on Rea’s Youtube channel. Homer Simpson revels in combining food and drink with wild abandon: every liquor in the house set aflame with cough syrup, skittles floating in beer, tomatoes cross-bred with tobacco. Few, however, are as heartbreakingly realistic as the

The Soviet sci-fi film reworked by Francis Ford Coppola

Ryan Lambie Feb 21, 2017

Before he made The Godfather and Apocalypse Now, Francis Ford Coppola got his start by editing monsters into a Soviet sci-fi film...

Everyone loves a good success story, and Hollywood history's full of them. Actors sleeping in their cars until they get their first lucky break. Writers papering the walls of their lodgings with rejection letters until they finally get a script in front of a receptive producer. Filmmakers who've spent years paying their dues before a studio finally comes calling.

Director Francis Ford Coppola, before he shot to fame - and, for a time, considerable wealth - with such films as The Godfather, The Conversation and Apocalypse Now, scrabbled around at the lower end of the industry like just about everyone else.

Film Review: Hidden Figures

If Hollywood is deemed to be out of ideas it’s because they haven’t looked hard enough into the history books. Hidden Figures is living proof that there are still compelling stories to be told—in this case, the story of three remarkable women who made a mark on our Space Program against all odds—and that they should and can be told and told well.

The story follows real-life pals Katherine (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy (Octavia Spencer), and Mary (Janelle Monáe), three unlikely heroines of the Space Age. These three remarkable women live in the suburbs of Virginia at work at Nasa at the height of the Cold War galactic race against the Soviet Union. Katherine is a mathematician, Dorothy is a “computer” of complex calculations, as humans not machines where then known, and Mary is an aspiring engineer.

Naturally, they face challenges inimical to their race and gender,

Why The Martian Isn't Just The Best Picture Of 2015, It's The Most Important

There was once an era in which we as a collective society looked up to science, in particular the field of traveling through outer space. With technology growing by leaps and bounds, and the space race in full effect, the 50.s and 60.s were the height of the "Space Age" . where going to the Moon was the ultimate achievement. But, to paraphrase Matthew McConaughey in Interstellar, we stopped looking at the stars, and suddenly space travel fell by the wayside. At least we did, until now. In an era where astrophysicists are popular again, and spacefaring is coming back to the forefront, The Martian is not only the best picture of 2015.s race, it.s also the most important. With its' massive success, both with Andy Weir.s original novel and the Ridley Scott directed film, The Martian is a story that uses hard science fiction to tell a story

9 Seriously Bizarre “Future Predictions” From The 1900s

Wikipedia

We’ve always loved predicting what the future might hold, whether we do it by gazing into a crystal ball, or analysing tech trends, we just can’t seem to help imagining a glittering future world.

In the 20th century in particular, people got super into this. Perhaps it was the fact that the futuristic-sounding year 2000 was approaching, but everyone began to imagine what sort of amazingly technological world their children and grandchildren might live in.

Of course, this is always risky. The thing about predicting the future, is that you open yourself up to all kinds of ridicule if you get it wrong. We often like to look back at those “world of tomorrow” pieces, with their predictions of shiny, silver clothes and flying cars, and laugh.

All of that Space Age future stuff is pretty par for the course. However, if you dig around a bit, you

Whatever Happened to the World of Tomorrow? by Brian Fies

  • Comicmix
Building and sustaining a career as a graphic novelist is even harder than the equivalent for a prose writer: comics require at least twice as much work per page (writing and drawing — sometimes inking and coloring and lettering, too) for something that’s read in a fifth of the time. And that turns making comics, especially mid-list comics, into a time-sink which has serious trouble delivering monetarily on a level with the effort required. And yet people keep trying, like any artform: there are always people with stories to tell and images to share, and some of them manage to turn that into a career along the way. (Others fail entirely, or do a couple of stories and then move on to something else.)

Brian Fies is an interesting case along that continuum. His first major graphic story, Mom’s Cancer, was a memoir comic that originally appeared in installments online,

Tomorrowland: A World Beyond review

From the director of The Iron Giant and The Incredibles comes the sci-fi adventure, Tomorrowland. Here's Ryan's review...

Director Brad Bird has an almost immaculate run of form when it comes to bringing larger-than-life entertainments to the screen. The Iron Giant was one of the most acclaimed animated films of the 1990s. The Incredibles and Ratatouille are among Pixar's best films so far. His live-action debut Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, while not perfect, was perhaps the most entertaining movie entry since the first.

Bird brings his blue-sky storytelling to bear on Tomorrowland: A World Beyond, a eyed sci-fi fairytale with elements taken straight from classic pulp magazine stories. It’s The Wizard Of Oz retold by Ray Bradbury or Hugo Gernsback, with bits of The Terminator and Buck Rogers thrown in for good measure. It’s an entertaining yet sometimes befuddling bag of intricately moving parts, not all of which fit together too well.

Will Richard Wilson be starring in a BBC sitcom?

Richard Wilson has told Digital Spy that the BBC have talked to him about starring in a sitcom.

The actor, who is most famous for roles in Merlin and One Foot in the Grave, said that he wasn't sure whether the project would go ahead.

Wilson told DS: "I wouldn't mind considering another sitcom. The BBC have talked about me coming back to do something, but I don't know whether that will happen.

"The trouble with One Foot in the Grave was it was so well-written by David Renwick, it's very hard to find something as good as that."

Wilson is currently fronting ITV's Richard Wilson's On the Road, in which he tours the UK in his vintage car using Shell Guides that were first published in the 1930s.

Asked if he planned to present more factual television, Wilson replied: "No, no. I can still consider myself an active actor,
