Selena ... Her Murder as Big as JFK Assassination

15 hours ago | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Selena's murder 20 years ago today was every bit as big as the death of John Lennon, Elvis Presley and the assassination of John F. Kennedy ... so claims the estate of the former Tejano music queen. Selena's estate claims in new legal docs her record label is hoarding huge amounts of money that should go to Selena's loved ones.

TV Review: ‘Sinatra: All or Nothing At All’

20 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Luck may or may not be a lady, but Alex Gibney is on a pretty fantastic roll, following his riveting Scientology documentary “Going Clear” with “Sinatra: All or Nothing At All.” Few entertainers have lives worthy of one film, let alone this two-part, four-hour extravaganza for HBO, but Frank Sinatra can barely be done justice even then. Timed to the centennial of his birth, Gibney’s meticulous production employs an intriguing, more visually engaging style of incorporating talking heads while drawing heavily on concert footage and Sinatra interviews. Simply put, one needn’t be a huge fan to start spreading the news.

In a clever departure, Gibney features only the voice of most interview subjects – including Sinatra’s children Nancy and Frank Jr., in a film made with the participation of Sinatra’s estate – thus allowing him to keep the screen filled with footage of Sinatra in one form or another. »

"Heartbreak Hotel" Neither Rocks Nor Rolls

24 March 2015 3:11 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Heartbreak Hotel advertises itself as a “rock and roll fantasy”; had it truly been that, it might have been something special. Most everything that happens in Hotel defies belief to some degree, but little of it truly feels fantastic. One can hardly blame Chris Columbus (in only his second film as director) for becoming enamored by the mythos of Elvis Presley, but his approach to king of rock and roll, like so many of them, feels minor compared to the man himself, and his legacy reduced to little more than a drawl and some cheesy catchphrases.

Bend It Like Beckham: Where are the cast of the 2002 box office hit now?

22 March 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Cast your minds back to 2002 - a time when Pop Idols didn't need to have The X Factor, Fifty Shades of Grey were just colours on a paint sampler chart and David Beckham was a mere international superstar rather than global megastar.

Bend It Like Beckham, with a modest estimated budget of £3.7 million, opened that same year and became a critical and commercial success - breaking box office records and scoring BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations, as well as making household names of many of its stars.

As the cast continues preparing for the West End stage adaptation of Gurinder Chadha's screen hit ahead of previews on May 15, find out what the movie's ensemble cast went on to achieve - including who is coming back for the musical...

Readers recommend: songs about cooking | Peter Kimpton

12 March 2015 3:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Baking cakes to steaming stews, barbecue grills to saucy snacks, suggest a musical menu of your tastiest songs with food preparation as inspiration

Welcome to the Readers Recommend kitchen and diner. Here Elvis Presley may well have had huge appetite for hamburgers, butter and ice cream. Dolly Parton once said that when she’s not cooking on a Sunday with her husband “we travel around in our camper, stop at fast-food restaurants, and picnic. We love that stuff that will harden your arteries in a hurry.” Musicians are indeed often in a hurry, and don’t represent the most healthy of eaters. Paul McCartney however said that if he is cooking, he is “steaming vegetables, that kind of stuff”, but undoubtedly enjoyed many more tasty treats from the skilled hands of Jane Asher or Linda McCartney. But there many parallels between cookery and music – the rituals of preparation and practising with tools, »

Miley Cyrus Has Laser Boobs and a Pizza Skirt, Skipped Paris Fashion Week to Play With Pet Pig Bubba Sue: Pics!

11 March 2015 2:13 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Miley Cyrus' definition of "being Miley" is ever-evolving. Hannah Montana is long dead and twerking is so over, but these days laser boobs are so in, y'all! Miley's lightsaber ladies are just the latest addition to her bizarrely entertaining Instagram feed, which features lots of phallic imagery, Elvis Presley and flashback pics like you wouldn't believe. The 22-year-old singer looks particularly proud of her twinkling tatas (which she refers to as "t--ties," a term generally avoided online and in the South) in this heavily photshopped picture, but those glowing girls weren't the only things on Miley's mind Wednesday...

Tff 2015: Tribeca Film Festival Announces 2015 Line-up For Viewpoints Section

11 March 2015 4:50 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The innovative Viewpoints section celebrates the distinctive visions of its innovative voices and will feature 27 unique and fascinating films of self-discovery and self-definition from 12 countries. Some films are personally intimate and identity seeking such as Gregory Kohn’s soul-searching drug trip Come Down Molly and Patrick O’Brien’s Transfatty Lives that documents his heroic efforts to maintain his creative self in the face of a devastating Als diagnosis.

Other stories of identity take on larger implications such as Orion: The Man Who Would Be King, which raises questions about personal –v- public identity, fame, and legacy through the story of a mysterious masked singer many believed to be Elvis back from the dead. There are also coming of age viewpoints – either taken in adolescence or adulthood like the young women of Being 14 and the rough-and-tumble boys of King Jack, who claw their ways towards adulthood within the war zones of puberty and high school, »

What can be achieved in a penultimate episode?

5 March 2015 1:46 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Penultimate episodes can provide experimental fun, a new start and closure, as Star Trek, The X-Files, Buffy, Quantum Leap and more show...

Endings are difficult, especially in an art form designed to produce weekly adventures that can continue in the same format for an indefinite period of time. Not all TV shows are lucky enough to get a designated series finale, as many are cancelled unexpectedly or at short notice, leaving a season finale to act as their de facto conclusion. For those lucky enough to have the time and notice to prepare a proper conclusion to their story, the pressure is on to make that final episode meaningful, emotional and memorable, preferably for the right reasons. Afterwards, if you’re lucky, that finale will be celebrated for years as a fitting tribute to a show people loved.

With all that focus on the finale, it’s easy to forget »

All Bets Are Off: Top Ten Films About Las Vegas

1 March 2015 9:19 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Las Vegas…the hotbed haven where dreams of high rollers are realized among the glitzy bright lights, the element of chance and luck and the adrenaline for instant fortune. But there is a deception to Sin City that is overlooked–the isolation of a gambler’s anxiety and desperation, the false sense of confidence at the craps table and the swinging doors of the psychological lows more so than the rewarding highs.

Still, Las Vegas has its excitable aura–both innocence and guilt–where one arrives to skillfully manufacture their financial profile or go bust. In some instances, the hedonistic expectations are defined in other fun, precarious ways. It is no wonder that Hollywood has come calling to put its distinctive spin on the capital city of adult entertainment. For decades, the movies have made Las Vegas its backdrop for wonderment, degradation, intrigue, comical curiosity and soul-searching revelations.
