Homer Simpson Answers Questions About Donald Trump As 'The Simpsons' Goes Live


The Simpsons Dan Castellaneta

After well over a quarter of a century on the air, ‘The Simpsons’ attempted an animated TV first during last weekend’s episode when Homer appeared live via motion-capture technology in order to answer fan questions.

During the final three minutes of Sunday night’s episode (May 15th), titled ‘Simprovised’, Homer appeared in a separate segment in order to answer pre-screened fan questions about events that had happened that very day. Dan Castellaneta, the voice artist who provides Homer’s voice, did a set of questions each for the East Coast and West Coast broadcasts.

Simpsons Death: It's Krusty The Clown Or Rabbi Hyman Krustofski


Matt Groening The Simpsons Dan Castellaneta

Speaking at a Television Critics Association panel on Sunday, Simpsons show runner Al Jean has all but confirmed the impending death on The Simpsons will see either Bart’s favourite clown, Herschel Shmoikel Pinchas Yerucham Krustofski (better known as Krusty The Clown) meet his maker. Or it might be the depressed entertainer’s father, Rabbi Hyman Krustofski.

Jean said the clues were “obvious”, eluding a gasping audience towards an episode entitled “A Clown in The Dumps”. Of course, that could mean Krusty’s perennial sadness is exacerbated by the death of his father. And for anyone claiming Krustofski isn’t a "major character"… well you’d be right. But Jean did recently admit that the Springfield resident who dies isn't "iconic".

Super 8 Review


Very Good
JJ Abrams and Steven Spielberg team up for this enjoyable alien thriller, which feels exactly how we nostalgically remember Spielberg's late-70s movies. But it's not nearly as earthy or thrilling as they actually were.

In 1979 Ohio, Joe (Courtney) is struggling with the fact that his mother has died in an accident. But it's summertime, so he and his pal Charles (Griffiths) decide to make a zombie movie with their friends (Lee, Basso and Mills).

Enlisting the help of their hot schoolmate Alice (Fanning), they are shooting a scene when they witness a train crash and some suspicious ensuing military mayhem. Suddenly the town is under the control of a harsh general (Emmerich), while Joe and his friends know a lot more than he thinks.

I-See-You.Com Review


Weak
A family's entire life is streamed live on the Internet, without their knowing it! Oh wait, you've heard this one before? Yeah, the atrociously titled I-See-You.Com might have made waves in 2002, but today it's awfully tepid, a retread of stories told so often they've come to feel like cliches.

When his family's finances hit the skids, Colby (Mathew Botuchis, who doesn't even get his name on the DVD cover) decides to install webcams throughout his house and turn his family's life into an online web show. Dad (Beau Bridges) is a gross weirdo. Mom (Rosanna Arquette) is a sex-obsessed cougar with a penchant for betting big on the stock market. And the main attraction is sis Audrey (Baelyn Neff), a teen hottie with a plethora of sexual gadgetry and lots of free time on her hands.

The Pursuit Of Happyness Review


Very Good
There is a part of The Pursuit of Happyness -- most of the last third, honestly -- that is just plain too bleak. It's taking an eternally optimistic guy just trying to scrape by and doing more than making things rough for him; it's kicking him in the crotch and spitting on him, and maybe humiliating him a little bit. It's some really holiday good cheer.

Chris Gardner (Will Smith) is one of those downtrodden guys for whom better times are always just around the next corner. He's a salesman, hawking some over-priced and under-used equipment to hospitals around San Francisco. What Chris wants is a better life for his family, his angry and overworked wife Linda (Thandie Newton, unconvincing with her brittle, bottled up range) and his delectably cute five-year-old Christopher (played by Smith's real-life son Jaden -- or, as he's loftily billed in the credits, Jaden Christopher Syre Smith). And the idea he latches onto, because it does not require a college education, but could still pay off big time, is to become a stockbroker.

Recess: School's Out Review


Weak

The bad guy in "Recess: School's Out" is a megalomaniacal ex-elementary school principal determined to do away with summer vacations by altering the orbit of the Moon so there's no more summer.

Voiced by James Woods -- one of Hollywood's greatest scenery-chewers -- this rakish, oily antagonist is by far the most amusing thing about this latest in a seemingly endless glut of cheaply animated TV 'toons cashing in on the purchase power of kids.

Such movies are not concerned with style, creativity or entertainment value for anyone of a discerning age. They don't even bother aspiring to be a "Toy Story," a "Pokemon") and rarely much more than just expanded episodes of the show that spawned them, blown up to 1.85:1 aspect ratio.
