Fred The Movie

Fred The Movie, Evidence that the merger of YouTube and television programming may be bad for the two mediums can be found on Fred: The Movie “(8 pm, Saturday, Nickelodeon). To begin with, “Fred” has a feature film to take on a sort of “comedy” better known in spoonfuls of two minutes.

Lucas Cruikshank plays the title role. Justin Bieber is a man-boy-esque voice that speaks of twisted heliumized that makes him look like a girl overcaffeinated seventh year. His manic gestures are also accelerated to give the whole “Fred” the experience of the appearance of cartoon frenzy.

At best it can be considered an update of the phenomenon Pee-Wee Herman, but without the humor or spirit of the invention. Tonight’s movie features a love triangle between Fred, his next crash, Judy (Pixie Lott) and his rival, Kevin. Search for John Cena and Jennette McCurdy in supporting roles.

- Is this “Boardwalk Empire” (9 pm Sunday, HBO, TV-MA) at the height of its popularity? Yes, a thousand times yes. I was not so enthusiastic about a series since “The Sopranos” and I did not think I’m alone. Among the great pleasures of this lush, expensive, beautifully shot well written, funny, violent, emotional and historical resonance series is unlikely that his point man.

Best known for his tragi-wheel supporting actor turns in films like “Fargo,” Steve Buscemi makes grace and gravitas here without losing any of its quirks and eccentricities that have made him one of the most entertaining players character of his generation. Dressed in period costumes dapper, it looks more like a 21st century Raymond Massey as the goof bulging eyes, we learned to know and love. Here, he plays Enoch “Nucky” Thompson, the incumbent treasurer, 1920 Atlantic City, a citywide open to function as a corrupt fiefdom privately with the help of his brother (Shea Whigham), the police chief.

In a brilliant opening time Nucky is seen during a meeting of the temperance society women of the village, which includes a ban on speech that leaves the female audience in tears. In the next scene, Nucky sits with his friends and political fixers and extolls ban was a great boon to many rackets.

Like “The Godfather”, “Empire” explores the myth of the creation of organized crime, with characters like Nucky, ripped the pages of history. Arnold Rothstein (Michael Stuhlbarg), the New York player who fixed the 1919 World Series, arrives just as gangster Lucky Luciano (Vincent Piazza), Chicago Boss Jim Colosimo (Frank Crudele) and a corner and called Al Capone (Stephen Graham).

A subplot involves strong Nucky ambitious war veteran driver Jimmy Darmody (Michael Pitt), and an Irish mother abused immigrants, Margaret Schroeder (Kelly MacDonald star-making turn), which sets bidding Nucky and side protection.
Filmed on a complex that cost millions, “Empire” is a feast for the eyes and takes his part Playland corrupt. The film also raises the audience to revisit the 1920s, a time not so different from ours, where rapid economic and social changes wrought strong and conflicting reactions from political and religious groups trying to return America to their vision of “normal.

Should I have to find fault with “Empire” is that some young players are not quite at their former co-stars, including Gretchen Mol Dabney Coleman, who are both wonderful. His description of an agent of the federal ban as a self-flagellating religious fanatic also seems a bit one-dimensional.

But these are minor quibbles. The pilot was directed by Martin Scorsese, and shares power series expansion of its lyrical, fluid camera movement and sustained interest in the internal dynamics of sub-cultures – of racketeers highlight of the collection SideShow Nucky Midget boxers. Later episodes are written and directed by “The Sopranos,” including veterans Tim Van Patten.

Like many efforts Scorsese, “Empire” is the greatest music era. Like “O Brother where art thou?” viewers switched on to the roots of country music, I expect many Boardwalk fans fall in love with the bawdy, songs implied support of the Victrola era, of course here for the first time since decades.

Not for the timid, “Empire” is rated TV-MA and makes the most of it. Sex, profanity, violence, and nudity are abundant. To be honest, a lot of room Buscemi scenes are hilarious. Gosh, a gangster drama full of sex, language, and bloodshed and blue located in New Jersey. Where have we seen this before?
