Why Patton Oswalt is relieved there isn’t a ‘Ratatouille’ sequel in the works

Patton Oswalt confesses he’s relieved there hasn’t been a “Ratatouille” sequel.“The film buff [side of me] loves that there hasn’t been a sequel,” the comic actor told the NY Post exclusively at the Amazon Upfront on Tuesday.“I love that [co-director] Brad Bird is the kind of guy that’s like, ‘I’ll do a sequel when I come up with a great idea but I’m not just going to run and scramble and try to do something just to do it.'”The “King of Queens” alum, 55, voiced Remy, a culinary-gifted rodent who helps a hapless French chef in the beloved 2007 Pixar toon.That’s not to say that a teensy part of Oswalt wishes they’d make a sequel, if only for the hefty paycheck.“Listen, I’m going to quote a musician friend of mine who says, ‘Whenever I hear my song in this commercial, that’s the sound of my kids teeth being straightened,'” he joked, “so yeah, there is that aspect.”The standup comedian will soon be seen as the host of a new quiz show called “The 1% Club” based on a British game show.Oswalt says it’s not like other shows.“It’s kind of based on how your brain works rather than how much information have you stored up in it,” he explained. “It’s about logic.

‘Hauntings,’ the ‘impossible’: ‘The Exorcist’ and what you never knew about the iconic horror film

CGI movie technology, it is getting harder and harder to deliver that true spine-chilling internal fear that makes horror films so great.Gen Z and Gen Alpha kids may arrogantly scoff at retro scary movies, but it hasn’t always been this way.There was once a time when picture-goers were so viscerally terrified by what they were seeing on the big screen that it would trigger powerful physical reactions right there in the theater.During Jaws (1975) people fainted and vomited in the cinema during some of the gruesome scenes, while others stopped going swimming in the ocean altogether out of pure fear.Alfred Hitchcock’s classic film Psycho (1960) sparked mania during the infamous shower stabbing scene, with reports of people hyperventilating and passing out in their cinema chairs.However, one of the most horrifying movies to ever hit the big screen, causing widespread panic, fear and repulsion, is William Friedkin’s The Exorcist (1973).Based on William Peter Blatty’s 1971 novel, the film follows the demonic possession of a young girl and her mother’s attempt to rescue her through an exorcism by two Catholic priests.With some wildly disturbing scenes, including some bizarre 360 degree head spinning, eerie spider-walking on the stairs and some disgusting projective lime-green vomit, it shocked those 1970s audiences to their core.One particular vulgar scene involving a crucifix — that is too crude to describe here — shocked and upset many, especially considering the percentage of people who were religious back then.The flick was so scary that even renowned Chicago Sun-Times film critic Roger Ebert was at a loss for words about how it made him feel.“I am not sure exactly what reasons people will have for seeing this movie; surely

‘The Idea of You’ review: Anne Hathaway’s sexy romance is better than you’d expect

Anne Hathaway’s career in Hollywood began 23 years ago with a family movie about every teen girl’s ultimate fantasy — her geeky character discovered she was actually royalty.Now 41, the actress has delivered a second dose of impossible escapism with “The Idea of You,” an, ahem, steamier, R-rated flick clearly made for the older millennials who obsessed over “The Princess Diaries” back in the aughts.Her latest fizzy project instead realizes the dream of every bored woman in their thirties and forties: She plays an exhausted single mom who has a fling with a famous, 24-year-old British boybander. And why not? What fun.Anyway, I suspect that aspirational viewers of “The Idea of You,” a decadent diversion that’s based on the popular novel by Robinne Lee, would much rather jet set around Europe with Harry Styles than live in a moldy 300-year-old palace and cut ribbons.
