‘Vice Principals’ Review: A Very Worthy Successor to ‘Eastbound and Down’

by Britt Hayes March 14, 2016 @ 4:21 PM
It’s kind of incredible that Danny McBride is capable of essentially playing variations on the same obnoxious, narcissistic and myopic character without audiences ever growing tired of his schtick. Unlike similarly repetitive character actors, McBride continues to both amaze and amuse with his crassly inappropriate and delightfully dumb humor, and Vice Principals is no exception. HBO’s latest miniseries is a more than worthy successor to Eastbound and Down, reuniting McBride with directors Jody Hill and David Gordon Green for another devious comedy — this time set in the world of high school administration.

‘Our Brand Is Crisis’ Review: Sandra Bullock Gets Our Vote, But This Political Satire Could Use More Bite

When Vice President Joe Biden appeared on The Late Show last week, Stephen Colbert’s first question was about authenticity. “You’re not a politician who’s created some sort of facade to get something out of us,” Colbert said. “We see the real you. How did you maintain your soul in a city that is so filled with people who are trying to lie to us?”

Just last week we learned that David Gordon Green is in talks to direct Stronger, one of three upcoming dramas about the Boston Marathon bombing. That film may be one step ahead of its competitors as Jake Gyllenhaal is circling the lead role, providing yet another fierce acting challenge for one of our most interesting leading men.

David Gordon Green has proven his diversity as both an indie and mainstream filmmaker, offering intimate, smaller-budget dramas and wacky, wide-release comedies. The director’s next project is a bit different, proving that Green is always up to meeting a new challenge: he’s officially signed on to direct Stronger, one of three films about the Boston marathon bombing.

‘Manglehorn’ Trailer: Al Pacino Is a Lonely Old Man Who’s Tough to Be Around

David Gordon Green returns with his follow-up to last year’s critically-acclaimed Joe, and although both Green and Al Pacino appear to be trying very hard, it doesn’t look like the director can do the same for Pacino that he did for Nicolas Cage. Credit where credit’s due: this does look like one of Pacino’s best performances in recent memory.

There are some actors that I just inexplicably root for. I have no idea what this means or why I do this, but the best way I can explain it is that it’s almost as if the actor is a sports team and I want that actor to win. But at least with sports, there’s regional pride to fuel a sometimes unhealthy rooting interest in what are essentially strangers. There’s really no explanation as to why I feel this with an actor like Nicolas Cage. But, yet, I do.

'Joe' Trailer: Nicolas Cage and David Gordon Green Get Back to the Basics

The 'Joe' trailer is all about men trying to ground themselves again. We're not just talking about the character of Joe Ransom, a former convict trying to fit back in with society, but also star Nicolas Cage and director David Gordon Green, both of whom have run into their fair share of rough patches in the past few years. If the trailer is any indication, 'Joe' will be a return to form for both of them.

James Franco is asked often if they'll ever make a 'Pineapple Express 2' and for the first time we have an answer that sounds like a sequel to the 2008 hit is a lot closer than we think. The actor gives us our best update yet on 'Pineapple Express 2' and also lets us know that we'll never see a sequel to 'Your Highness,' a movie he says "sucks."

David Gordon Green's latest quirk-fest, 'Prince Avalanche,' stars Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch and made its debut a couple of months ago at the Sundance Film Festival, to very positive reviews (read our own right here). We've got a little while to go before it opens for all to see, but in the meantime the first trailer and poster have been made available.
