The Weekend Read: Our Saturday essay on the great topics in entertainment and culture today. Last weekend, as Toshi was cruising the Blu-ray shelves for new movies to start asking about, he pulled "Rain Man" on a shelf and considered the cover for a moment before he turned to me, excited. "You didn't tell me Tom Cruise made a superhero movie!" I can only assume his eventual disappointment might be tempered by the fact that "Rain Man" is a pretty good movie. It had been a while since I'd seen it, though, and after they went back to their mom's house, I put it in to watch it. I remember when it came out being right in the midst of my first time watching a lot of classic filmographies, and more than anything, I enjoyed the film as a match-up between Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise. Looking at the film, »

Actress Ambyr Childers is quickly making a name for herself in different genres on television and in movies. Since taking her first job in the BBC comedy series S Club 7 in L.A., she's moved on to bigger opportunities like a role in the popular long-running American soap All My Children and supporting characters in The Master, Gangster Squad, 2 Guns, and several others. With Vice, Childers re-enters the world of science fiction she first dabbled with in the award-winning 2011 independent film Love.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Ms. Childers about her work on Vice. She shared her experiences working with Bruce Willis and tells readers what to expect from the movie. Childers also expands on her role of Kelly the "Artificial" and takes us behind the scenes of the making of the film.
How did you get involved in Vice?

As previously stated, we at Flickering Myth love Commando. Which is why we’re always upset that it never got a sequel – only it very nearly did! One of the Internet’s most famous rumours is that the script for Commando 2 eventually became Die Hard, the movie that launched the action career of Bruce Willis. However, screenwriter Steven de Souza has confirmed that this is not the case.
“I don’t know how this story started on the Internet – it’s completely wrong,” he told Bristol Bad Film Club. “Die Hard is based on a novel called Nothing Lasts Forever by the author Roderick Thorpe, which is a sequel to his early book The Detective. In fact, a good bar bet if you want to make some cash is to ask someone, ‘Who was the first actor to play John McClane and in what movie?’ They will say, ‘Bruce Willis »

Rumer Willis has legs for days! The 26-year-old actress slipped into one very revealing two-piece costume for this week's episode of "Dancing with the Stars," where she performed the Cha Cha with partner Val Chmerkovskiy. The sparkly and fringe-adorned ensemble really showed off Rumer's killer physique, including her amazing legs, tight tummy and ample cleavage. With her short, dark locks and smoky eye, she's definitely giving us shades of her famous mama, Demi Moore. Demi and Bruce Willis' daughter is the one to beat this season, after slaying during the premiere and coming in near the tip top of the leaderboard on Monday evening as well. "You have the attack of a warrior on a mission ... and mission accomplished," exclaimed judge Bruno Tonioli after Rumer's dance with Val last night. The duo scored an impressive 32/40, tying with Willow Shields and Riker Lynch and coming up just short of Nastia Liukin »

Hollywood is not exactly a warm and fuzzy place where everyone gets along like best friends. That’s why so many film sets are hotbeds for drama. But no drama is more intense than the art-infused feuds between actor and director, because Art!
Here are some of the biggest and best actor-director fights in film history.
Let’s start with the most recent. After Mo’Nique won an Oscar for her role in Precious, she says Daniels told her she was blackballed for not playing the Hollywood game. Then recently she announced that she’d been offered roles in both The Butler and Empire, but never heard anything more until she learned Oprah and Taraji P. Henson were respectively playing what she’d been led to believe were her roles. Despite the struggles, Mo’Nique says she “could work with Lee Daniels tomorrow.”

Bruce Willis and Demi Moore have been divorced for 15 years, but their oldest daughter, Rumer Willis, is now praising the way her famous parents' split up after 13 years of marriage, saying that they both put in so much "effort" to have their children not suffer from any fallout. Even though she was only 10 years old at the time, Rumer told Larry King on his show, Larry King Now, that it was still a lot to handle but admits she didn't understand the fame aspect of it as much.
