9 Wes Craven Movies You Must See

31 August 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday was a tragic day for horror fans around the world, as we reported the unfortunate news of Wes Craven passing at the age of 76 in his Los Angeles home. Wes Craven left an indelible mark on the horror movie genre almost immediately with his first feature film, 1972's The Last House on the Left, and his influence will be felt for years to come, in the filmmakers that follow and carry on his legacy. As we continue to mourn the loss of this legend, we're revisiting his best work with nine of his best films.

Wesley Earl Craven was born in Cleveland, Ohio, to Caroline (Miller) and Paul Eugene Craven, raised by a strict baptist family, although his father died when he was just five years old. He earned his undergraduate degree in English and Psychology from Wheaton University in Illinois, and earned his Masters in Philosophy and Writing from Johns Hopkins University. »

Whatever happened to Dirty Dancing star Jennifer Grey?

24 August 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Patrick Swayze famously declared, "Nobody puts Baby in a corner!" in Dirty Dancing, but actress Jennifer Grey's unusually low profile since the 1987 film left many fans wondering where she did go.

On the 28th anniversary of that legendary dance lift, the actress has since dated some of Hollywood's biggest A-listers, won a Us reality TV show and starred in no fewer than 11 TV movies. But it was a dramatic "nose job from hell" that meant that her star faded and her burgeoning career took a very different path.

What she did first

8 celebrity couples who tried to nail Dirty Dancing's iconic lift scene

Jennifer's early career saw her bag roles in some stone-cold '80s classics. She made a fleeting appearance in Francis Ford Coppola's The Cotton Club before teaming up with Patrick Swayze on Red Dawn. You'll also remember her from Ferris Bueller's Day Off, playing »

What would the world be without "Dirty Dancing"? A horrible, wonder-less, impossibly unromantic place, probably.

There's an endlessly memorable array of reasons to love the Patrick Swayze / Jennifer Grey 1987 classic, which more than likely had a positive -- if not profound -- impact on your childhood and/or adolescence. So let's revisit the Catskills and take a tour of some of the movie's most iconic quotes, dancing-est moments, and downright unforgettable looks of longing. Just remember not to put Baby in a corner; Johnny Castle hates that.

'Dirty Dancing' Fail -- Woman Face-Plants On Dance Floor (Video)

3 August 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

This is what happens when you combine the docile tones of Celine Dion with the highflying dance moves of "Dirty Dancing." This poor woman must have thought she was Jennifer Grey when she performed the acrobatic dance move to "My Heart Will Go On" … too bad for her the guy lifting her in the air wasn’t Patrick Swayze. He should've remembered Kate Winslet's line from "Titanic" -- "Never let go." Near … Far … Wherever »

80s Fashion On Film

13 May 2015 4:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The bright, brilliant fashion of the 1980s has often been captured on film – the over-the-top nature of the clothes lends itself beautifully to cinema, with some of the most iconic outfits of all time captured in this era. To celebrate the home entertainment release of A Most Violent Year, in which Jessica Chastain showcases an incredible array of 1980s-era Armani, we take a look at other films which demonstrate the fashion of the decade.

Submarine (2010)

Richard Ayoade’s comedy drama stars Craig Roberts as 15 year-old Oliver Tate, who has two major ambitions – to lose his virginity to the beautiful Jordana (Yamin Paige), and to save his parents’ rocky relationship (a task made all the more difficult when his mother’s ex-lover reappears in their lives). Costume designer Charlotte Walters does a brilliant job of capturing the wonderfully quirky take on the classic coming-of-age tale, dressing the young cast in a wonderful array of duffle coats, »

Take Two: Do I Still Hate Ferris Bueller?

16 April 2015 5:08 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Our weekly series in which writers revisit for the first time in ages their youthful passions and reconsider how well they hold up with the passage of time. When “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off: was released in 1986, I was 17 years old ( a surly, difficult 17 years old); which is to say,I was the exact same age as the character Ferris Bueller; which is to say, the worst possible age to enjoy a film about him. To this put in some context, growing up in the late 1970’s and early 80’s was a glorious time to be a very young movie-goer.  Comedies in particular – were at their most bawdy and anarchic, which is exactly what a 10 year old boy wants. We were allowed to see on the screen in those days all sorts things that it is now horrifying to imagine a 10 year old was allowed to see; but as a 10 year old, »
