Stop In The Name Of The Law: The Best Of The Buddy Cop Genre

February 25th, 2010 9:27am EST
Cop Out
Buddy cop movies involve two characters with completely different styles - usually one by the book and a wild one with no fear. They reluctantly team up to stop a crime and become friends in the process. These two characters usually can’t stand one another in the beginning, but as time passes they begin to appreciate the other’s perspective. They blend the excitement of an action movie with the wit of comedies, creating a very entertaining experience.

In honor of the latest film in this genre, this week’s “Cop Out” starring Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan, we're spotlighting some of our fa...

Lessons J.J. Abrams's 'Star Trek' Could Learn From Past 'Trek' Films

Star Trek XI
It's been over 40 years since Gene Roddenbury's "Star Trek" hit the air, and after ten movies, 703 episodes from five different series, and faltering public interest, it's become difficult to go back to where no one has gone before. Now, four years after "Enterprise" went of the air, the original crew of the starship Enterprise has burst back onto the screen. Directed by "Lost" and "Alias" creator J.J. Abrams, this new installment of the "Star Trek" saga goes back to the beginning when James T. Kirk first slipped on his yellow Starfleet uniform. Still, it hasn't been an easy path for the lo...

October 3rd, 2008 11:24am EDT
How to Lose Friends and Alienate People
(HollywoodChicago) – Simon Pegg (the British cult hero of “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz”) was welcomed to a Chicago hotel where his press event was taking place with personalized water bottles that sported his face.

The star of the new film “How to Lose Friends & Alienate People” cradled the customized gift as if it were an Oscar trophy. He delightedly mocked the honor. It is good to be the king.

HollywoodChicago.com interviewed him from there in a free-wheeling forum about his rise to stardom, his coming to America and why everyone wants to join the Simon Pegg cult.

British Invasion: UK Shows Coming To America

August 26th, 2008 9:03am EDT
Life On Mars
With the American version of "The Office" still leading NBC's fall line-up, remakes of successful British shows have become a hot commodity. Picking up on this success, several networks have snatched up the rights to remake some of the most popular British shows. It's a process that has obviously worked in the past, at least in the world of reality television. "Dancing with the Stars," "Big Brother," and "Celebrity Fit Club" all had their start in the Fallen Empire, but remakes of drama and comedy haven't been nearly as successful. For better of for worse, here's a list of shows that will i...

The 'Forgot-scers': Films & Performances That Fell Through The Cracks This Year

February 22nd, 2008 11:39am EST
Michael Clayton
The Academy Awards are just one big popularity contest, right? Everyone has an agenda, everything is fixed, its Hollywood's Prom and this year Michael Clayton is just the Prom King.

Some of it's true and some isn't, and most of the movies nominated this year are rightfully so. That just doesn't reconcile that so many great movies fall through the cracks each year, for whatever reason, and don't get their just deserts.

They're overlooked, they're under-appreciated, and they're forgotten. They may not be the very greatest ever made, but they still deserve to get let in on the celeb...
