A few quick tips: Find the alcohol, hide the knives. If you’re already steeling yourself for your annual tension-filled visit, this video may help. Fandor has compiled a montage of cinematic Thanksgiving turkey dinners even more painful than the one you’re about to have, featuring Christina Ricci talking about massacred Native Americans, Christina Ricci torching some Native American structures, a turkey flying right at Home For The Holiday’s Cynthia Stevenson, and the unlikely instance of Pauly Shore punching someone out.
It’s not much, but this video may offer you some valuable perspective, leading to you believe that your Thanksgiving dinner really isn’t that bad. After all, Pauly Shore probably isn’t anywhere in sight.

Let’s face it: this is a difficult year for many of us to be thankful – at least if we’re focusing on the news (and how could we not?). 2016 has taken so much and so many from the world, it’s hard not to greet Thanksgiving with the kind of benediction Wendy (Christina Ricci) delivered in The Ice Storm...

Of all the iconic characters that have come out of horror movies over the years (Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger, Chucky), none of them really hold a candle to Wednesday Addams. As the daughter of Morticia and Gomez in The Addams Family and The Addams Family Values, the dark and cynical girl (played by Christina Ricci) has blessed the world with some of the best one-liners and facial expressions about just not giving a damn. Not only does she take no sh*t from anyone, but she is also brutally honest about her love of all things dark. Keep reading for all the times she made you say, "Same."

The star’s known to switch up her hair, experimenting with different colors and lengths, but the bangs are new to us (unless you »
Two films and a TV series out soon portray the life of the jazz-age writer and wife of F Scott Fitzgerald
She is thought of as the original wild child, a pearl-twirling party girl who died at the age of 47 after a fire broke out in the North Carolina sanatorium where she was a patient. Now Zelda Fitzgerald, the southern belle turned jazz-age heroine, dubbed “the first American flapper” by her husband and partner-in-drink Scott, is to have her own Hollywood make-over – two films are in the pipeline and a television series will air on Amazon Prime early next year.
All three projects have starry names attached: Jennifer Lawrence will take the lead in Zelda, a biopic directed by Ron Howard and based on Nancy Milford’s best-selling biography; Scarlett Johansson will bob her hair for The Beautiful and The Damned; and Christina Ricci will play the young and impetuous »

It’s Scarlett vs. Jennifer!
Two of Hollywood’s top leading ladies Scarlett Johansson and Jennifer Lawrence are about to go head-to-head, as the two stars are both slated to portray the late Zelda Fitzgerald in dueling biopics, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The wife of author F. Scott Fitzgerald died nearly 70 years ago in a fire at a hospital in North Carolina, but lately the Jazz Age icon has landed at the top of Hollywood’s must-list.
No one wants to pit two powerful women against each other, but that's kind of what will inevitably happen soon between these two A-listers. Leading ladies Scarlett Johansson and Jennifer Lawrence will be thrown into an involuntary comparison battle in the near future, as the two stars are each slated to portray the late Zelda Fitzgerald in dueling biopics. The Jazz Age icon and wife of author F. Scott Fitzgerald died nearly 70 years ago in a fire at a North Carolina hospital, but her life has been at the forefront of Hollywood's inspiration as of late. Just as Amazon rolls out its own series, Z: The Beginning of Everything, with Christina Ricci playing the "first American flapper," films »
It would seem that Hollywood is suddenly hot on Zelda Fitzgerald who, as far as I know, has no toys based on her life, and hasn’t been packaged into a Happy Meal, which makes it all the more surprising. Next year, Christina Ricci will play the Jazz Age icon in the Amazon series “Z: The Beginning of Everything,” but that hasn’t stopped two movie projects from building steam.

It has been nearly 70 years since Zelda Fitzgerald died in a fire at a hospital in North Carolina. But the Jazz Age icon and wife of author F. Scott Fitzgerald is suddenly all the rage in Hollywood. Competing films fronted by Jennifer Lawrence and Scarlett Johansson, respectively, are on the fast track to being first at the same time that Amazon has its own series, Z: The Beginning of Everything, with Christina Ricci playing the socialite who was once dubbed by her husband as "the first American Flapper." But Zelda Fitzgerald was far more than just a pearl-

One of my favorite things to do every October is to binge-watch as many horror and sci-fi movies as possible (something I can guarantee I’m not alone in doing), and for those of you with Netflix, the streaming service can be an invaluable resource this time of year, although I do remember a time when there were a lot more options than we get these days.
That being said, I culled Netflix's entire library and put together 31 great movie choices that will undoubtedly get you into a macabre mood to celebrate Halloween this year. Take a look at our Netflix list below, featuring one film for each day of October, and get ready to enjoy an entire month’s worth of fright-filled fun, courtesy of Netflix’s streaming database.

The great thing about TV is that it offers a few hours of respite from real life. We live and breathe the characters and their stories from our favorite shows. Sometimes the feelings are so real, it's like we're a part of what's going on even if it's set in a time period we're not familiar with.
There are shows that bring on the nostalgia and others that bring the past back to life! You can learn about life during the Salem Witch Trials or learn what it was like during the early hip-hop era.
From classic tales of romance set in the far past to the struggles of teenage life in the 80s, here's a list of TV shows that will take you back in time!
1. Freaks and Geeks Set in the early 80s this teen dramedy told the story about the unpopular kids of high school: the freaks and geeks. »

I think everyone in this country should be aware by now that our race relations are at an all time low. It seems every time we hear the news another black citizen has been shot by the police or police have been shot by someone angry about these shootings. It cannot continue. We as a nation cannot keep going down this road.
I have always sympathized with Black Americans. In fact as a Scot and Irish American I have always sympathized with anyone who ever got pushed around, starting with Native Americans, Asians, Jewish immigrants, women of any ethnic group, Hispanics from any country.
I also sympathize with the people who are tasked with law enforcement. It’s a tough job. I had some training in that area. A couple of years ago I was hired by a Security company and was trained in unarmed, and armed, uniformed security. I »

There are a lot of unique directors with distinct visions that we love, but Tim Burton stands out among them as one of the best.
Tim Burton turns 58 today, and to celebrate the prolific director’s career in cinema, we’ve put together a list of some of our favourite Burton movies. We’ll freely admit that this list was no easy feat to put together, but we couldn’t exactly list every movie he’s ever made.
Fittingly enough, Burton has yet another movie coming out very soon: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. This is one we really can’t wait for, as it’s based on the beloved novel that might as well have been written for direct adaptation by Tim Burton. It’s got a pretty dreamy cast too, »

One in a great while, you come across a film that not only entertains you, but one that really resonates with you on a very personal level. When these films come along, it’s important as cinephiles and also just as admirers of personal storytelling, to embrace those films and champion them as much as you can. Last year, while going through what could be easily described as a hellish time in my life, I was skimming through Netflix and I was caught by the title Before I Disappear. Not knowing that it was spawned from the Oscar-winning short film Curfew, or that it was written/directed and starred Shawn Christensen, the vocalist for a band I was quite fond of for quite some time (Stellastarr*), I watched it. Experiencing the film was like those special experiences I wrote about above, ones that touch your soul in very profound ways. »

Patricia Clarkson, Bruno Ganz, Kristin Scott Thomas, Emily Mortimer, Cillian Murphy, Timothy Spall and Cherry Jones are to star in Sally Potter’s film “The Party,” which has just started its 14-day shoot in London.
Set in a house in contemporary London, the film is “a comedy wrapped around a tragedy,” according to Potter’s production company Adventure Pictures. “It starts as a celebration and ends with blood on the floor.”
The production reunites many of Potter’s long-standing collaborators, including cinematographer Alexey Rodionov (“Yes,” “Orlando”), production designer Carlos Conti (“The Motorcycle Diaries,” “The Kite Runner”), sound guru Jean-Paul Mugel (“Hidden,” “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly”), and editor Anders Refn (“Anti-Christ,” “Breaking the Waves,” “Ginger & Rosa”).
It is the eighth feature film to be directed by Potter, who is best known for “Orlando,” the 1992 adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s novel. The film, which starred Tilda Swinton, received two Academy Award nominations. Her other films include the BAFTA-nominated “The Tango Lesson” (1996); “Yes” (2004), with Joan Allen, Simon Abkarian, and Sam Neill; “The Man Who Cried” (2000), starring Christina Ricci, Johnny Depp, Cate Blanchett and John Turturro; “Rage” (2009), with Jude Law, Judi Dench and Steve Buscemi; and “Ginger & Rosa” (2012), starring Elle Fanning and Alice Englert.
