    Woody Allen’s new movie, “Wonder Wheel,” doesn’t open until December, but he’s already at work on his next project starring Elle Fanning, Jude Law, Selena Gomez, Rebecca Hall, and Timothée Chalamet. The movie is reportedly called “A Rainy Day in New York,” and its story could end up resulting in another controversy for the director. Page Six reports the movie stars Law as a middle-aged married man who “makes a fool of himself over every ambitious starlet and model.” The 44-year-old character allegedly has a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old “concubine,” played by Fanning.According to Page Six: “In the scene,...
  • Harvey Weinstein: Woody Allen 'sad' for producer over sexual assault allegations

    BBC News ^ | October 15, 2017
    Woody Allen has said he is "sad" for Harvey Weinstein as the producer faces numerous allegations of sexual assault. The filmmaker said he had heard rumours but not "these horror stories" after a number of women came forward to accuse Weinstein of assault. Weinstein was voted off the board behind the Oscars on Saturday as a result of the allegations. Allen faced his own sex claims; accused of molesting his adopted daughter - a claim he has always strongly denied. Weinstein has been credited with reviving Allen's career after Allen was accused of abusing Dylan Farrow, his daughter with actress...

    (snip) Some reporters have drawn connections between the press' grudging evolution on Cosby and a painful chapter in my own family's history. It was shortly before the Cosby story exploded anew that my sister Dylan Farrow wrote about her own experiences — alleging that our father, Woody Allen, had "groomed" her with inappropriate touching as a young girl and sexually assaulted her when she was 7 years old. Being in the media as my sister's story made headlines, and Woody Allen's PR engine revved into action, gave me a window into just how potent the pressure can be to take...

    There are lots of famous Jewish atheists from Sigmund Freud to Ayn Rand to Isaac Asimov to Woody Allen. How do you think the Jewish community would have reacted if what follows had happened? A Jewish couple, atheists, artists, puts on an exhibit in which they critique five major religions with artworks and commentary. At the end of the first day the gallery owner comes up to them and says, you are attacking Islam and that means you favor the Jews in "Palestine." This is "racism." They try to explain that they are critiquing five major religions equally, did not...

    Mystery Science Theater 3000 smashed through all known barriers Friday night to prove itself the king of geeky TV when its total on Kickstarter (including its add-on shop) soared past $6.3 million. The show, which went off the air in 1999, became the most successful crowdfunded video project of all time, surpassing the Veronica Mars movie, which previously held the title with $5.7 million. The MST3k project’s ultimate goal had been $5.5 million to produce a new, 12-episode season of the cult series, in an attempt to prove to various networks or online streamers that there was a demand for...

    This year’s edition of the sacred MSTie tradition known as Turkey Day should be an especially festive affair, considering that the Kickstarter to fund a new season of MST3K has already exceeded its $2 million goal with 22 days left to go in the campaign. Thus, MST3K creator Joel Hodgson will carve up six juicy, tender classic episodes of the show beginning at 12 p.m. ET/9 a.m. PT next Thursday, AD. As it has for the past two years, the marathon will be presented by Shout! Factory, and live-streamed through the web portal at www.BringBackMST3K.com.

    In a not-too-distant future, you could be watching brand-new episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000. Joel Hodgson, the creator and original host of MST3K, has turned to Kickstarter to campaign for a new season of the cult-classic movie-riffing series. Returning to the line-up are the original bots, Tom Servo and Crow, to mock and joke through each unbearable film. The asking price? $2 million is the initial goal, which will allow the team to shoot three brand new episodes of MST3K. Each additional $1.1 million after that will allow them to shoot another three episodes, up to 12 episodes. The...

    Way before people were making fun of TV shows via Twitter, the guys from "Mystery Science Theater 3000" were on TV making fun of movies. Really bad movies. Now the cult comedy favorite is returning to the small screen thanks to Twin Cities Public Television. That's right, the irreverent show is public TV fare. TPT will be airing four classic episodes of the beloved low-budget show starting on March 21 (10 p.m.) and for the three following Saturdays. Fans of the "MST3K," which started in the Twin Cities at KTMA in the late '80s before moving to Comedy Central (originally...

    For years, the stars of "Mystery Science Theater 3000" found the funny in films that were never intended to be comedies. A poorly-written B-grade science fiction film like "This Island Earth" was, for instance, perfect fodder for the MST3K guys. On August 19, Michael J. Nelson, Bill Corbett and Kevin Murphy will be back in theaters for live RiffTrax presentation of "Reefer Madness." A notorious propaganda film from the 1930's, this over-the-top movie shows the horrors that come with smoking marijuana.

    I have felt for sometime now that the main motivating force behind the "Bush lied, people died" crowd is the notion that "they did it to Clinton, so we'll do it to Bush." And while there were those on the right that went to extremes in their criticism of President Clinton, the general level of vitriol and hate that Liberals have sunk to in their seething rage against Bush specifically and Republicans in general is totally out of proportion with reality and precedent. This reminded me of this sketch from Mystery Science Theater 3000:Mike: And then the drunk guy says,...

    --snip-- Q33 (Forrest):  Have you seen The Passion of the Christ?  If so, what did you think?A33:  I have seen it.  I have mixed feelings about movie depictions of the central event in the Christian faith.  For myself, I have the Bible and that works well for me.  Also, I’m a Protestant, and we tend to be more Easter focused, while traditionally, Catholics have been a little more Passion focused.  So it did me good to spend a little time there.All that being said, I think it was a pretty fine movie, and darned if it didn’t get people talking...

    Bad movies only get better with expert heckling. "Mystery Science Theater 3000," aka MST3K, riffs on truly horrible films with the help of a human and his robot buddies. So it only makes sense that its fans have put their money where their laughs are and helped raise millions of dollars for a new season. With this successful Kickstarter campaign almost completed, fans of the original MST3K will have a chance to watch new episodes with a new cast, new cameos and a new writing staff. Since this is a continuation of the series and not a reboot, they also...
