The new year is almost here and that means it's time for one of Netflix's ceremonial killing sprees. The streaming service is taking out its big, streamy chainsaw and dicing up some of your favorite films. Come January 1, these classics will be gone. De-Netflixed. De-available from The Big Red Website. So snatch them up and at least pretend to watch them so that you don't look dumb when a bow-tied homosexual approaches you at a New Year's party with his quips about "Kramer Vs. Kramer." He needs validation and your genuine, informed laughter will appease him. Here are the 11 most important titles to stream before 2015. "Titanic" Kate Winslet at her most Alex Kingston. Leonardo DiCaprio at his most Jodie-Foster-at-age-14. Iceberg at its most January Jones. "12 Angry Men" Though Henry Fonda is a towering film icon, it is shocking how almost none of his films are discussed anymore. Maybe "The Grapes of Wrath »

Legendary TV producer and writer Glen A. Larson sadly passed away recently aged 77 – Larson was most famous for creating Battlestar Galactica one of the most spectacular and ambitious television programmes ever produced in the 1970s. And with Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Original Series being released on Blu-ray for the first time last month we’re remembering some of the most iconic TV shows of the 1970s.
Created by Garry Marshall, the series presents an idealised view of Us life in the 1960s and was one of the highest-rated Us TV shows in the 1970s. ‘The Fonz’: Early episodes of the Happy Days revolve around Richie Cunningham (Ron Howard) and his friends but high school dropout and ladies man Arthur ‘The Fonz’ Fonzarelli (Henry Winkler) proved a favourite with viewers so more story lines were written to reflect this popularity. Fun Facts! Robin Williams appeared in the »

Above: a sultry new poster for Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice. Dumb and Dumber To has opened to unsurprisingly mixed reviews, but Farrelly brothers champion R. Emmet Sweeney makes a case for the long awaited sequel for Film Comment:
"Dumb and Dumber To is about a deep, abiding friendship that can survive any indignities. After Harry and Lloyd’s journey is over, they’ve tossed away fortunes and frittered away kidneys, but they need each other to survive. As each momentary acquaintance slinks, or runs, away, it’s up to Harry and Lloyd to forget and move on. Or as is the case for Lloyd, to think about ninjas and wake up licking the grill of a big rig. Either way they can’t live without each other. And though they could never admit it, or even form the words in their desiccated cortexes, what they have is something like love. »
A few recommendations for fellow podcast junkies: The Film Society of Lincoln Center has launched The Close-Up. It's free, it's weekly, and so far, there are four episodes, all recorded during last month's New York Film Festival. "Paul Thomas Anderson and Bennett Miller separately spoke separately with Nyff Director Kent Jones, while Laura Poitras sat down with Fslc Director of Programming Dennis Lim." And there's a discussion of the work of Jean-Luc Godard. More listening: Interviews with Frederick Wiseman, Josephine Decker, Isabelle Huppert and Kim Cattrall; and discussions of the work of Audrey Hepburn and Edgar G. Ulmer. » - David Hudson »
After countless headlines, we’ve recently seen Shonda Rhimes take the heat for the seriously sexual gay scenes in her show How To Get Away With Murder. In return, she tells everyone to stick it where the sun don’t shine. As she rightfully should. Because of shows like Orange Is the New Black and entertainment pioneers like Rhimes, Lgbt couples on television have finally moved further away from taboo and closer to the norm. At the end of the day, love is love and we’re focusing on the lady loves who prove just that.
On TV, there has been a lesbian marriage on Grey’s Anatomy (again, thanks to Rhimes), short flings such as on The O.C. and supernatural love back in the day of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. During Buffy’s run, Alyson Hannigan said her character’s relationship was “[n]ot about being controversial or making a statement. »

Sex and the City's Mr. Big is saying how he really feels about Carrie Bradshaw.
He tells news.com.au that his character always stayed true to himself, it was Carrie that ran into problems even though she was a strong woman.
"It was [Carrie] who tried to pretend he was something he wasn't," he says. "He was always honest about himself — he never cheated on her. The relationship just didn't work, and he went on to get married while she went on to … how many boyfriends did she have? She was such a whore! [laughs] There's a misconception that Carrie was a victim of him, and that's not the case — she was a strong, smart woman."
Leave it to Mr. Bigs to be honest »

With documentaries, subject matter is often half the battle. Yet two interesting topics are mostly squandered in projects premiering on Sept. 23, with PBS’ “The Boomer List” having little to say and Epix’s “Forgotten Four: The Integration of Pro Football” proving unexpectedly forgettable. That’s a shame, since each contains material that is both significant and timely – the influence of the aging baby boom generation, and the quartet of African-Americans who integrated pro football but, unlike Jackie Robinson, remain largely unheralded for that accomplishment.
Presented under the “American Masters” banner, “Boomer List” starts with a terrific idea: Interviewing celebrities or simply accomplished people each representing a different year of those born from 1946 to 1964 – the designated parameters for boomerhood – reflecting the group’s influence and formative experiences.
What’s missing in photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders’ film (which will be accompanied by a book of portraits) is any sort of cohesion or focus. »

Nudity on-screen is no new thing, obviously. Way back in 1934, Tarzan and His Mate engaged in a very lusty, full-on naked swim, which shocked Depression era audiences everywhere. But that’s the thing, nudity in movies is usually about sex. Not so when comedic actors do it. They use their un-yoga’d, un-tanned, non-waxed naked bodies as a tool for being funnier. Take Jason Segel in Finding Sarah Marshall. As his girlfriend dumped him, he stood a thousand percent nude — and limp – in his apartment (for what felt like hours), and we howled. When Frank the Tank (Will Ferrell) went streaking in Old School, his exposed full moon wasn’t about being hot, it was about being hilarious.

The Editor, by members of famed group Astron-6, and the final entry announced for this year's Midnight Madness program at the Toronto International Film Festival, has a pretty new poster! This new poster was illustrated by London, UK based artist Graham Humphreys. It could be considered slightly Nsfw (Not Safe For Work), so be careful where you are looking at this. The following trio of posters were also created for the film by Humphreys and there are no mistaking the nudity on that last one of these below. Do mannequins count? Only if it was Kim Cattrall would I hope yes. Boom with the 80s film reference!!!We will have our dedicated team of reviewers running around The 6 during the festival so keep your eyes peeled...

Lady Gaga wore a stand out gold outfit as she left the Jazz at Lincoln Centre in New York City, after performing a song with Tony Bennett. Gaga was an auction winner recently as well - a series of 'video portraits' of Lady Gaga raised over $1 million at auction over the weekend. Avant-garde director Robert Wilson showcased his '23 Video Portraits of Lady Gaga' series at his annual Watermill Center gala in the Hamptons at the weekend, and the controversial images - which included the 'Born this Way' singer as a beheaded John the Baptist and hanging tied-up and naked upside-down - were then sold off. Guests at the gala included Kim Cattrall, Jay McInerney, Philip Glass and Lisa Anastos, and as well as the Gaga-themed showcase, they also enjoyed an after-party featuring a woman singing opera from a hole in the ground, naked performance artists roaming through the »
Hugo Blick returns to television tonight with BBC Two's The Honourable Woman - a new eight-part thriller starring Maggie Gyllenhaal as Nessa Stein, the daughter of an arms dealer caught up in an international political crisis.
In his 25-plus years in the business, Blick has led a long, varied and deeply interesting career - penning some of British television's best and most ground-breaking comedies and dramas and even branching out into acting.
Digital Spy presents Blick's career highlights - from a surprising debut to his noirish masterpiece.
Even ardent fans of Blick's work might be surprised to learn that he made his screen debut not as a writer but an actor, portraying the younger version of Jack Nicholson's Napier - alias the Joker - in Tim Burton's gothic big-screen take on the Dark Knight.
Blick appears only briefly in the film, but with that broad, sinister grin and icy blue eyes, »
