Film Review: ‘Permanent’

Film Review: ‘Permanent’
It’s hard to decide which era “Permanent” is most nostalgic for: 1982, when writer-director Colette Burson’s semiautobiographical coming-of-ager is set, or the turn of the millennium, when movies like “Welcome to the Dollhouse” and “Ghost World” set the template for the kind of twee, adolescent-angst stories that reached their apotheosis a few years later with Fox Searchlight releases “Napoleon Dynamite” and “Little Miss Sunshine.” In either case, the movie does neither time period any real favors, being a funny-ish (but never outright funny) portrait of a high school girl whose biggest concern is her hair.

As such, the title “Permanent” refers to the chemical process (or “perm,” as the mainstream called it) made enviable by the likes of Meg Ryan, Stevie Nicks and Dolly Parton back when big hair and poodle-like ringlets were all the rage. It also describes the kind of damage that high school renders on teenagers everywhere, who carry the

A young man has spoken out against those who bully him and others in a video clip that’s making waves on the Internet — and earning him a slew of famous friends.

In a video posted on Facebook, Friday, by his mother, Tennessee student Keaton Jones emotionally explained how he was bullied at school.

“They make fun of my nose. They call me ugly. They say I have no friends,” Keaton told his mother in a car with tears in his eyes. He added that things even get physical at lunch, when bullies “put milk on me and put ham down my clothes,

Mark Hamill Trolls Trump, Teases The Last Jedi Spoilers

Mark Hamill Trolls Trump, Teases The Last Jedi Spoilers
Mark Hamill has started to turn his Twitter trolling into an art form, from teasing fans about ridiculous fan theories, standing up for Porg rights, and now trolling the President of the United States of America, Hamill is never mean spirited, just making observations on the world as he sees it with humor and positivity. The Star Wars: The Last Jedi actor has been active on social media for years, but with The Last Jedi a few weeks away, Mark Hamill has considerably stepped up his trolling game and in a new tweet, he's able to kill two birds with one stone, getting Star Wars fans and Donald Trump in one tweet.

Before we get into Mark Hamill's artistry, we first need some foreshadowing as to how this tweet works. Late last week, Donald Trump took to Twitter to say that he isn't interested in being Time Magazine's Person

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Ava DuVernay, Jordan Peele, and More Mock Donald Trump’s Time Magazine Tweet: ‘Nobody Cares’
As evidenced by the fact that Donald Trump says he’ll “Probably” be Time Magazine’s Person of the Year, Donald Trump almost certainly won’t be Time Magazine’s Person of the Year. (Also, the fact that chief content officer Alan Murray called it “total Bs.”) Like most communiqués from the tweeter-in-chief, this latest tantrum has inspired mockery from the likes of Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jordan Peele, and Ava DuVernay.

Donald Trump Claims He Rejected Time’s Person of the Year and Stars Have Hilarious Reactions
Despite being named Time’s Person of the Year in 2016, President Donald Trump is taking himself out of the running for 2017 and everyone is talking about it.

10 Things About Pulp Fiction You Never Knew

10 Things About Pulp Fiction You Never Knew
It's a certified cinema classic and one of the most quotable movies ever. Two years after Reservoir Dogs, video store clerk turned auteur Quentin Tarantino turned out another masterpiece in Pulp Fiction, the 1994 movie that rescued John Travolta from the pop culture waste bin via a now iconic performance, matched in creative and artistic firepower by Uma Thurman, Bruce Willis, Tim Roth, Harvey Keitel, Christopher Walken, Eric Stoltz, Rosanna Arquette, Amanda Plummer, Ving Rhames, and of course, Samuel L. Jackson as the soul searching hit man Jules. Pulp Fiction still regularly plays in midnight showings at the writer/director's own New Beverly Cinema. Today we look at 10 things you never knew about Pulp Fiction.

Matt Dillon was almost Butch.

Originally Quentin Tarantino conceived of the "palooka" pugilist played by Bruce Willis as a younger up and coming boxer. He envisioned Matt Dillon in the role. But after the actor reportedly took too long to decide,

Toy Story 4 Writers Left Over Pixar Head's Alleged Misconduct

Toy Story 4 Writers Left Over Pixar Head's Alleged Misconduct
John Lasseter, head of Pixar and Walt Disney Animation, is the latest Hollywood power player to be embroiled in a sexual harassment scandal, with a new report claiming his behavior affected the highly-anticipated sequel Toy Story 4. It has been revealed that original Toy Story 4 writers Rashida Jones and Will McCormack left the project shortly after they were announced as the screenwriters, after John Lasseter made an unwanted advance. Neither Rashida Jones nor Will McCormack commented on the story, while a Pixar rep claimed their departure was due to "creative differences." Both Rashida Jones and Will McCormack are still credited as the Toy Story 4 writers on the movie's IMDb page.

This report doesn't offer any specific details about what this "unwanted advance" may have been, but if it happened shortly after they came aboard, it likely happened more than three years ago. Toy Story 4 was first announced

The Best Coming-of-Age Movies Ever Made — IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In honor of Greta Gerwig’s “Lady Bird,” what is the best coming-of-age movie ever made?

Siddhant Adlakha (@SidizenKane), Birth.Movies.Death.

While it may not fit the western paradigm of a traditional coming of age film (neither a high school setting nor teenage angst or confusion find themselves the focus), “Lion” holds the distinction of being a rare modern movie that gets to the root of key questions of dual identity, questions that will only become more prominent in the age of globalism. It’s the most extreme version of having your feet in two cultures; Saroo Brierley (Sunny Pawar, Dev Patel) finds himself

Nightmare on Elm Street 3 Cast Recreate Iconic Dream Warriors Photo

Nightmare on Elm Street 3 Cast Recreate Iconic Dream Warriors Photo
Some say that A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors is the best of the franchise and for others, it saw a beloved character begin his downfall. So, when a group of the original Dream Warriors cast members reunited at New Jersey's Chiller Theatre Convention, it was kind of a big deal, no matter what your feelings are about the horror classic. The third installment of the iconic NIghtmare on Elm Street franchise came out in February of 1987 and it cemented Freddy Krueger as a pop culture icon. Fans were able to see where Freddy came from and launched the Dream Warriors, who were much more than just cattle being led to slaughter.

In honor of the 30th anniversary of Dream Warriors, Heather Langenkamp (Nancy), Ira Heiden (Will), Penelope Sudrow (Jennifer), Jennifer Rubin (Taryn), and Rodney Eastman (Joey) all attended the Chiller Theatre Convention and took time out to

Patricia Arquette & Rainn Wilson Are Parents in Trailer for 'Permanent'

"Hairstyles are temporary, but family is forever." Magnolia has debuted an official trailer for an indie comedy titled Permanent, set in the 1980s about a young girl who gets a special hairstyle to fit in. The title is, of course, referring to the 80's hairstyle called "permanent", or better known as a "perm", with big Farrah Fawcett-type curls. When she tries to get this done at the wrong place, it turns out to be a disaster, turning her into the laughing stock of the school. Kira McLean stars as Aurelie, along with Patricia Arquette and Rainn Wilson as her parents, plus Aidan Fiske, Jane McNeill, and Brian Bremer. This looks fun, quirky, and charming, in a quintessential indie way of course, which is why it also looks mostly forgettable. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Colette Burson's Permanent, direct from YouTube: Set in 1983 in small town Virginia,

Donna Karan Blames Her Comments Defending Harvey Weinstein on Exhaustion: 'I Made a Huge, Huge Mistake'

Donna Karan Blames Her Comments Defending Harvey Weinstein on Exhaustion: 'I Made a Huge, Huge Mistake'
Donna Karan is still haunted by her controversial comments defending Harvey Weinstein.

In a new interview with Good Morning America's Robin Roberts, the 69-year-old designer apologizes for defending the now disgraced studio mogul during an interview at the CineFashion Film Awards earlier this month. In video published by The Daily Mail, Karan was asked about Weinstein, and suggested that women may be "asking for it" by the way they dress.

“I think we have to look at ourselves," Karan said. "Obviously, the treatment of women all over the world is something that has always had to be identified. Certainly in the country of Haiti where I work, in Africa, in the developing world, it’s been a hard time for women. To see it here in our own country is very difficult, but I also think, how do we display ourselves? How do we present ourselves as women? What are we asking? Are we asking

Freddy Krueger Launched Dead Ant Star Tom Arnold's Movie Career

Freddy Krueger Launched Dead Ant Star Tom Arnold's Movie Career
The Nightmare on Elm Street franchise has helped launch many a film career in Hollywood, including Johnny Depp, Patricia Arquette, and Kelly Rowland, just to name a few. But none more notorious perhaps than the career of Tom Arnold. Halloween is almost here which means when we had the chance to speak with Tom Arnold about the new horror comedy Dead Ant, we couldn't resist the chance to get in a question about his relationship with MovieWeb's favorite horror movie killer Freddy Krueger.

The 58 year old actor and comedian, who earned an MTV Movie Award for Best Comedic Performance thanks to his supporting role in Arnold Schwarzenegger's True Lies, made his film debut in Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare, the supposed finale of the A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, which arrived in September 1991.

It was the height of tabloid fame for Arnold and his then wife, Roseanne Barr,

Mayim Bialik Clarifies Comments About Sexual Assault After Being Accused of Victim Blaming

Mayim Bialik Clarifies Comments About Sexual Assault After Being Accused of Victim Blaming
Mayim Bialik insists that it was "absolutely not" her intention in a New York Times op-ed about the Harvey Weinstein scandal to place blame on any woman or man that has been a victim of sexual assault.

The Big Bang Theory star received some backlash after noting that she's careful about her clothing choices and behavior when on set in an effort to avoid unwanted advances.

“I still make choices every day as a 41-year-old actress that I think of as self-protecting and wise,” she wrote. “I have decided that my sexual self is best reserved for private situations with those I am most intimate with. I dress modestly. I don’t act flirtatiously with men as a policy.”

Mayim Bialik Responds to ‘Vicious’ Criticism Over Her Harvey Weinstein Editorial
Big Bang Theory star Mayim Bialik has responded to backlash to an editorial she penned about sexual harassment in the wake of allegations of assault and harassment against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

The actress wrote an op-ed titled Being Feminist in Harvey Weinstein’s World, which was published by the New York Timeson Friday. In it, she discussed how she had not experienced being invited to hotel rooms by powerful industry executives -- something several actresses have alleged Weinstein did before acting inappropriately with them.

“Those of us in Hollywood who don’t represent an impossible standard of beauty have the ‘luxury’ of being overlooked and, in many cases, ignored by men of power unless we can make them money,” she explained.

She then noted that she has never condoned anyone calling her “baby” or wanting hugs on set, and that she makes choices about her clothing and behavior to make herself less prone to harassment.
