Al Franken Grills Supreme Court Nominee Neil Gorsuch: “I Had A Career Identifying Absurdity And I Know It When I See It”

21 March 2017 4:06 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch kept his cool for the most part during today's one-part-contentious-one-part-treacly confirmation hearing. Mostly the TV news cameras following the hearing lapped up his Mr. Smith Goes to Washington routine, complete with lengthy explanation to bemused Washingtonians about the fine art of “mutton busting” and the annual stock show parade that makes its way up Denver's 17th Avenue each year. But Gorsuch seemed to drop the Jimmy Stewart… »

17 March 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

The proverbial fat lady is about to sing — again — as Grant Gustin readies to reshoot a climactic scene from The Flash‘s musical crossover with Supergirl (titled “Duet” and airing Tuesday, March 21 at 8/7).

Having spent much of the day filming an episode that airs later in Season 3, Gustin has kicked off Barry’s trademark sneaks and suited back up in a tux-and-tails. He now is laying supine on the ground, exposed to the elements of a typically cold, very late Vancouver-adjacent night, annnnd… that is about all we can reveal about the intense moment. Because, you know, superspoilers!

This Is Us Finale Recap: You Don't Know Jack — Plus, Grade the Episode!

14 March 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Need to catch up? Check out the previous This Is Us recap here. 

After an entire season of This Is Us, we thought we had a pretty good handle on every single member of the Pearson family.

Turns out, we didn’t know Jack.

The NBC drama caps its first season with an hour that focused on Jack and Rebecca — the Big Three only appear as adults, and only for a few brief scenes — and spends its time hopping between Mr. and Mrs. Pearson’s kismet-kissed first meeting and a giant fight that may mark the beginning of their marriage’s end. »

Buffy Turns 20: 22 Things You Never Knew About Everyone’s Favorite Slayer

10 March 2017 8:00 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Get ready to feel as old, ’90s kids: Buffy the Vampire Slayer premiered 20 years ago today.

The beloved series, which cemented Sarah Michelle Gellar‘s place in pop culture history, continues to serve as a favorite among fans with an affinity for high school dramas and regular vampire showdowns.

It’s hard to imagine a TV landscape without the benefit of the show’s landmark run — creator Joss Whedon and Gellar pushed a strong female lead into a world of supernatural creatures, which proved to be successful for ratings and a groundbreaking precedent for future shows.

In honor of the show’s milestone anniversary, »

25 films all but guaranteed to cheer you up

9 March 2017 11:51 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joe Richards Mar 24, 2017

Need to find a bit of movie happiness? Here are 25 films that might just do the trick...

Let's face it, we could all probably do with a little bit of cheering up right about now. Times are scary and times are tough, so it's perfectly natural to look for some kind of reassurance that everything will indeed be all right in the end.

Film is perhaps one of the most powerful and effective tools in doing this. It can be a transportative experience, an escape from reality, and, most importantly, it can act as a reminder of all that is good in the world.

With that in mind, here’s a list of 25 movies that are almost-guaranteed to make you smile and restore your faith in humanity...

City Lights

In truth, any of Charlie Chaplin’s films are perfect for those times when you just need to smile. »

'Personal Shopper' Review: Kristen Stewart's Existential Ghost Story Is Pure Cinema

8 March 2017 5:29 AM, PST | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Kristen Stewart might be the most adventurous young actress working today. Instead of playing variations on the Twilight role that made her a star, she keeps pushing ahead into new territory (Camp X-Ray, Still Alice, Certain Women), the riskier the better. Nothing scares her. She hit a recent career peak playing the personal assistant to a demanding Juliette Binoche in Clouds of Sils Maria. And in Personal Shopper, she reteams with French director Olivier Assayas, to again investigate living in the shadow of another person.

Vertigo Screens at The Hi-Pointe Saturday Morning – Here are Alfred Hitchcock’s Ten Best Movies

7 March 2017 5:59 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Article by Jim Batts, Dana Jung, and Tom Stockman

Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo screens at St. Louis’ fabulous Hi-Pointe Theater this weekend as part of their Classic Film Series. It’s  Saturday, March 11th at 10:30am at the Hi-Pointe located at 1005 McCausland Ave., St. Louis, Mo 63117. The film will be introduced by Harry Hamm, movie reviewer for Kmox. Admission is only $5

This gives us a perfect excuse to re-run this top ten list so here, according to We Are Movie Geeks, are Alfred Hitchcock’s ten best films:


Frenzy, Hitchcock’s next to last feature film from 1972, represented a homecoming of sorts since it was the first film completely shot in his native England since his silents and early ” talkies ” in the 1930’s. By dipping into the then somewhat new territory of serial killers, he took full advantage of the new cinema freedoms and truly earned his ‘ R ‘ MPAA rating. »

Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo Screens at The Hi-Pointe This Saturday Morning

5 March 2017 6:01 PM, PST | | See recent news »

“You shouldn’t keep souvenirs of a killing. You shouldn’t have been that sentimental.”

Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo screens at St. Louis’ fabulous Hi-Pointe Theater this weekend as part of their Classic Film Series. It’s  Saturday, March 11th at 10:30am at the Hi-Pointe located at 1005 McCausland Ave., St. Louis, Mo 63117. The film will be introduced by Harry Hamm, movie reviewer for Kmox. Admission is only $5

Let’s state this right from the top: Vertigo is one of the greatest films ever made. It’s not simply hyperbole that notables such as Leonard Maltin and Martin Scorsese have called the film Hitchcock’s masterpiece. To paraphrase Scorsese, rarely have we seen the complexity of a man’s thoughts and feelings portrayed so beautifully and compellingly onscreen. Everything in Vertigo – from the costumes to the location scenery to the performances of its lead actors is quite simply, perfect. Hitchcock »

Great Job, Internet!: An appreciation of the six-decade, 400-role career of character actor James Hong

24 February 2017 8:47 AM, PST | | See recent The AV Club news »

Whether or not you know his name, odds are you’ve seen James Hong on screen. The 88-year-old character actor has more than 400 credits to his name. And this new hour-long episode of the YouTube series No Small Parts dives into Hong’s lengthy career. Born in 1929 in Minneapolis to parents who emigrated from Hong Kong, Hong spent his childhood in both the U.S. and China. After showing an early aptitude for impressions (his Jimmy Stewart is uncanny), Hong eventually found his way into a showbiz career that has now spanned six decades.

The episode delves into the specifics of Hong’s career and also also zooms out to look at larger issues of Asian representation. Host and creator Brandon Hardesty discusses representation in a nuanced but comprehensible way, acknowledging the complexities and contradictions of the issue. For instance, Hardesty explains he was surprised that many of ...

Variety Critics Weigh in on the Year in Film

22 February 2017 8:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Were you thrilled or disappointed in the films this year? In an effort to sum up the themes of the last 12 months of cinema, we posed three questions to a panel of Variety critics and pundits.

1. How do you rate the 2016 slate against those of previous years?

2. What was the biggest scandal or most-talked-about issue of the year?

3. What aspect of film this year made you stand up and cheer?

Not surprising, there was wild variation among their answers. There were highs (“Moonlight”) and lows (the Nate Parker fiasco). Also not surprising: Politics were a big part of the conversation. Here’s how our panel weighed in.

Andrew Barker

Senior features writer

1. On the whole, 2016 had more than its share of disappointments: unusually soul-crushing sequels, middling attempted Oscar-bait, and some head-scratching misfires from typically reliable directors.

But any year in which moviegoers are treated to a genuine masterpiece from artists »

Get Out: Jordan Peele Explores Race With His Social Horror Flick

21 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

After many years establishing himself as a comedian--first on Mad TV and then teaming with that show’s Keegan--Michael Key for the equally successful Comedy Central show Key and Peele--Jordan Peele has decided to go behind the camera to make his directorial debut with the horror-thriller Get Out.

It stars Daniel Kaluuya (Sicario) as Chris Washington, whose girlfriend Rose Armitage (Allison Williams of Girls) wants to take their relationship to the next level by having him meet her parents, who she hasn’t told that her boyfriend is black. At first, it doesn’t seem to matter, but as they spend the weekend together at her parent’s remote house, they’re joined by family friends who are acting equally oddly around Chris.  As Chris tries to figure out what is happening, he is led down a dark path towards something quite malevolent and deadly.

Rushes. Farhadi Not Attending Oscars, John Hurt & Emmanuelle Riva, Post-Sundance Travails

But in a statement made to The New York Times, the filmmaker, who is nominated again this year for The Salesman, says he wouldn't attend even if granted an exception:Instilling fear in the people is an important tool used to justify extremist and fanatic behavior by narrow-minded individuals.

However, I believe that the similarities among the human beings on this earth and its various lands, and among its cultures and its faiths, far outweigh their differences. Last week we lost two great actors, John Hurt (1940 - 2017) and Emmanuelle Riva (1927 - 2017).Francis Ford Coppola's recent forays into moving images, whether the super-local indie thriller Twixt or his "live cinema" project, have been ambitious and unusual, »

Catalog From The Beyond: Alfred Hitchcock’s Rope (1948)

1 February 2017 1:09 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In the middle of the 20th century, Alfred Hitchcock made a career out of generating fear from the mundane. Psycho made us afraid to shower. The Birds had us looking toward the skies for more than just the pigeons looking to crap on our heads. And I’ll be damned if Rear Window didn’t get me to stop spying on my neighbors with a telescopic camera.

Those familiar with Hitchcock’s work likely know that his ability to instill dread stems from his knowledge about the difference between surprise and suspense. According to Hitchcock, to surprise, you simply need to set off a bomb in the middle of a scene. To create suspense, however, the audience needs to know the bomb is there. Suspense is the knowledge that two people are living their lives blissfully unaware that each moment could be their last. That’s why many of Hitchcock »

Santa Barbara Raises Curtain on Restoration Project at Star-Studded Fest

1 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Santa Barbara became a movie town in 1912, when the American Film Co., aka the Flying A, set up shop there. The studio began cranking out shorts at a rapid pace, producing an estimated 1,200 silent movies before its demise in 1921.

But Santa Barbara’s showbiz embrace didn’t end there: It has long served as a favored tryout city, film and TV location, and industry playground.

Since 1986, the coastal community 89 miles north of Hollywood has also been home to the Santa Barbara Intl. Film Festival. The festival, which kicks off Feb. 1, will feature a jam-packed lineup of premieres, starry events, and panel discussions. In a nod to Santa Barbara’s storied past, the fest will also serve as the formal curtain-raiser of its major capital project, the renovation of the city’s historic Riviera Theater.

The Riviera Theater, recently acquired by the Sbiff through a 30-year lease, has long been symbolic »

One of the Greatest Film Noir Stars of Them All? Four Crime Classics to Remember

21 January 2017 11:36 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Dana Andrews movies: Film noir actor excelled in both major and minor crime dramas. Dana Andrews movies: First-rate film noir actor excelled in both classics & minor fare One of the best-looking and most underrated actors of the studio era, Dana Andrews was a first-rate film noir/crime thriller star. Oftentimes dismissed as no more than a “dependable” or “reliable” leading man, in truth Andrews brought to life complex characters that never quite fit into the mold of Hollywood's standardized heroes – or rather, antiheroes. Unlike the cynical, tough-talking, and (albeit at times self-delusionally) self-confident characters played by the likes of Alan Ladd, Edward G. Robinson, James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart, and, however lazily, Robert Mitchum, Andrews created portrayals of tortured men at odds with their social standing, their sense of ethics, and even their romantic yearnings. Not infrequently, there was only a very fine line separating his (anti)heroes from most movie villains. »
