Will Ferrell to be honoured at 2013 MTV Movie Awards

Feb 27 2013, 10:10am CST | by

Will Ferrell is to be honoured at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards.

The 45-year-old actor will receive the first-ever Comedic Genius Award in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the world of comedy at the ceremony held on Sunday April 14.

Will's work ranges from a seven-year stint on 'Saturday Night Live' beginning in 1995 to roles in hit films such as 'Elf, 'Anchorman' - for which he will be reprising his role as Ron Burgundy in the sequel, 'The Legend Continues' - and his latest movie 'The Campaign'.

Stephen Friedman, President of MTV, describes the funnyman's career as ''extraordinary'' and thinks there is no one more worthy of the newly-introduced prize.

He said: ''Will Ferrell epitomizes what it means to be a comedic genius and it's only fitting that he should be the inaugural recipient of this award.

''Over the course of his extraordinary, 17-plus-year career, he has entertained audiences across the globe with an impressive array of laugh-out-loud performances on air, online and in films. Simply put, Will Ferrell is 'kind of a big deal'.''

Will will also be showing off his crowd-pleasing skills by helping 'Bridesmaids' actress Rebel Wilson host the event.

The actor's other accomplishments include launching user-generated website Funny or Die in 2007 and receiving the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor in 2011.

The 2013 MTV Movie Awards will be broadcast on Monday 15 April at 9pm on MTV UK.

TV critics seem to have reservations about NBC’s new comedy series Bad Judge. The single-camera comedy stars Kate Walsh as Rebecca Wright, a tough judge serving on the Los Angeles County Circuit Court, who’s private life is pretty wild.  In the comedy, created by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, Wright  meets an eight-year-old boy whose parents she’d put in the hoosegow. Walsh said she loved the idea of playing a character who, in the first four pages of the script, wakes up with a ...

The LEGO Movie DVD Review: Building the Perfect Movie

Jun 17 2014 3:14pm CDT | Source: movie fanatic

The success and how bloody fantastic The LEGO Movie is should not have surprised anyone. Given that the film is from Phil Lord and Chris Miller (who just gave us those inspired 22 Jump Street quotes), there is nothing these two can't do. And making a movie, based on a popular building block toy, was clearly a labor of love that can now be seen by everyone because The LEGO Movie is out now on DVD, Blu-Ray and digital download. As we stated in ...

Jun 15 2014 9:47pm CDT | Source: Collider

One of my favorite movies of 2014 is director Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s The LEGO Movie.  Loaded with great animation, a fun story, humor for both kids and adults, and an insanely addictive song (“Everything is Awesome”), The LEGO Movie is truly something special.  If you’re not familiar with the movie, it’s been made using a mix of stop-motion and CG animation and the pic revolves around Emmett (voiced by Chris P ...

Some you certainly recognize, like well-known character actors Alan Ruck and Beth Grant, who have starred in everything from de Bont’s Twister and TV’s Spin City to films like A Time to Kill and No Country for Old Men.

Jurassic Park, released in 1992, was filmed in part on the gorgeous island of Kauai, Hawaii; as the photos above reveal, however, very little remains of the iconic entrance gate all these years later.
