DWTS: See Which Stars 'Killed It' on Monday's Show

22 September 2014 7:35 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The celebrities got to pick their tunes on Monday's edition of Dancing with the Stars, so the numbers were as varied as a bikini song samba to a Cyndi Lauper-inspired foxtrot. Here were the scores: Randy Couture and Karina Smirnoff. It seemed like an awfully big challenge - dancing the cha-cha to "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" - but a uniform-clad Randy appeared to have a ball gyrating his hips to the crazy beat. "What a great way to start the night," said Judge Julianne Hough. "I think we have a new hip action hero," added Bruno Tonioli. Score: »

New on DVD Blu-ray August 12: 'Locke,' 'The Blacklist,' 'Bedknobs and Broomsticks'

11 August 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week

"Locke"

What's It About? Tom Hardy stars as a construction foreman who's driving to London to attend the birth of his child. You really shouldn't have stressful conversations on your cell while driving, but Ivan (Hardy) doesn't care. He has to make sure his big job tomorrow goes as planned, confess to his wife that he cheated on her with a co-worker, and coaching the aforementioned co-worker through the premature birth of their baby. Yikes.

Why We're In: Hardy is more than capable of commanding the screen for the entirety of the movie. Although you hear other characters' voices, it's all Hardy, all the time. Who could argue with that?

Moviefone's Top Blu-ray of the Week

"Love Streams" (Criterion)

What's It About? John Cassavetes and real-life wife Gena Rowlands star as siblings who turn to each other for support after being left by everyone else in their lives. »

13 June 2014 7:06 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Matt Lauer will be spending many more Todays at NBC.

The network’s embattled Am leading man has extended his contract with the morning show for several more years, the New York Times reports. (According to sources, his new deal is for three years.)

The news comes after the once-mighty Lauer weathered a rough couple of years at Today, during which he presided over the rocky departure of former co-anchor Ann Curry and saw his show cede its ratings crown to Good Morning America.

“I consider this the best job in broadcasting,” Lauer said in a statement. “I love people »

Al Pacino (Stand Up Guys) fights battles on and off the field in Oliver Stone’s (Savages) sports movie Any Given Sunday.

Not one of critics’ favorite films of three-time Academy Award-winning director Oliver Stone, Any Given Sunday nevertheless clicked with fans, grossing a tidy $75.5 million in theaters and a 74% moviegoer approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Our Disc Dish critics are on the more positive side for the film. While not a favorite, it’s a good one to have in your collection if you’re a fan of Pacino, Stone or definitely football. Even if you’re not into the actors and drama, the game footage is gorgeous.

Rated R, Any Given Sunday stars Al Pacino as Tony D’Amato, head coach for the fictional Miami Sharks football team, who won back-to-back championships four years ago. When the »

The Definitive Movie Musicals: 30-21

11 May 2014 9:33 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As we continue on, I need to once again clarify that if this list was “Joshua Gaul’s 50 Favorite Movie Musicals,” it’d be a quite a different list. But, if my tastes determined what is definitive, I’d be asking you all to consider Aladdin as a brilliant piece of filmmaking and wax nostalgic about my love for Batteries Not Included and Flight of the Navigator (not for the musicals list, of course). Much to my dismay, my tastes are not universal. I’d like to think my research methods are.

Alan Bridges obituary

29 January 2014 9:30 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Television director in the glory days of the BBC, who went on to make feature films

Alan Bridges, who has died aged 86, was a leading director during the glory days of the BBC, from the mid-60s to the early 70s. Today, whenever media pundits analyse the history of television drama, they wax lyrical about The Wednesday Play and its successor Play for Today, bemoaning the virtual disappearance of the single play.

By the time Bridges started working in the Wednesday Play slot, he was already one of the BBC's most experienced TV directors – he had directed excellent 10-part adaptations of two 19th-century classics, Great Expectations and Les Misérables (both in 1967) – but he relished the "right to fail" ethos at the BBC, enjoying working with exciting contemporary writers.

While continuing to have a distinguished television career into the 80s, adeptly moving from the popular to the experimental, from the modern to the classical, »
