Our Fave References to '80s Movies in Netflix's Stranger Things

3 August 2016 3:25 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Stranger Things is the perfect summer binge watch - fun, suspenseful and beautifully shot, with heroes and heroines that make you say, "she looks like this person I know" - and then they're up against a super creepy monster. It's the kind of show that makes you feel sad when it's over (there are already rumblings about a second season). Kate Hudson called it "all kinds of awesome." Plus the music is cool. From the opening sequence, Stranger Things evokes the beloved '80s filmmaking of Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Wes Craven, John Carpenter, Ridley Scott, John Hughes and others. »

Stranger Things were happening this past weekend for those who sampled and wound up bingeing all eight episodes of Netflix’s new drama series.

The top 25 films of Jeff Daniels

5 July 2016 3:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Dan Cooper Jul 8, 2016

From Dumb & Dumber and The Martian, through to Arachnophobia and Steve Jobs - we salute the screen work of Jeff Daniels...

They say that when you play the Game of Thrones, “you win or you die”. The Game of Jeff Daniels, however, is an undeniably different beast and for the most part is a definite “you win or you win”. After viewing dozens of Jeff Daniels movies and spending many, many hours with his on-screen personas, it’s fair to say that the maxim has been sorely tested but guess what? It still holds true. This list has been carefully curated to celebrate the veteran actor’s talent, versatility and wit and no matter which (if any) of these movies you decide to revisit or check out for the first time, Jeff is guaranteed to give you something to love in each and every one.

Cinema Gadfly – Episode 22 – Bob Roberts

30 June 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

My guest for this month is Herb van der Poll, and he’s joined me to discuss the film he chose for me, the 1992 American-British satirical mockumentary film Bob Roberts. You can follow the show on Twitter @cinemagadfly.

Show notes:

The cast is seriously insane, with Tim Robbins, Giancarlo Esposito, Ray Wise, Gore Vidal, John Cusack, Peter Gallagher, Alan Rickman, and Susan Sarandon Oh and also James Spader, Helen Hunt, Jack Black, Jeremy Piven and his sister Shira, and Bob Balaban Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you already know we have an election happening The film shows some strong parallels to the presidency of George W. Bush Ray Wise, of course, was famously Laura Palmer’s dad on one of my all time favorite shows, Twin Peaks In this film, he and Alan Rickman play Dick Cheney and Karl Rove type figures Folk music is often in the service of liberal causes, »

‘Everything Wrong With Stargate’ Video Nitpicks The 1994 Sci-Fi Classic Starring Kurt Russell

21 June 2016 4:09 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Cinema Sins continues with its hilarious “Everything Wrong With…” series, jotting down all the “sins” committed in a popular film. This week, its latest victim is the 1994 sci-fi classic, “Stargate.”

“‘Stargate’ was a movie, then a TV show, and is now being rebooted as a movie series again. Because that’s how awesome it is… to someone. Not us. We find it to be full of sin,” says the teaser in the video.

The 14-minute video jots down its first sins by noting that “stealing on accident is still stealing,” then critiquing it for “ripping off ‘Raiders’ and inspiring the Brendan Fraser ‘Mummy’ movies.” More of the sins explained in the clip include judging the actions taken by James Spader, wondering about Kurt Russell’s character mental health and the questionable actions that the soldiers »

2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series

1 June 2016 3:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After seven nominations for playing Don Draper, the eighth time was the charm for Jon Hamm, who finally took home the prize last year for “Mad Men” in its final season. With Hamm now out of the race, the path is cleared for an actor who has never won for his current role. Some of the category’s frontrunners have won previously, some for lead actor, some in other categories, including Kyle Chandler (“Bloodline”), who won for “Friday Night Lights”; Bobby Cannavale (“Vinyl”), a “Boardwalk Empire” winner; Aaron Paul (“The Path”), who won for “Breaking Bad”; and “Billions” pair Damian Lewis and Paul Giamatti, who took home prizes for “Homeland” and “John Adams,” respectively. Actors who have received previous noms for their current characters without a win include Hugh Bonneville (“Downton Abbey”), Kevin Spacey (“House of Cards”), Bob Odenkirk (“Better Call Saul”) and Liev Schreiber (“Ray Donovan”).

The Blacklist Season Finale Review: The Twist We All Saw Coming

19 May 2016 8:03 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

I love The Blacklist. I really do. It’s an excellent show. It’s fast paced. The characters are strong and interesting. James Spader is an excellent lead character. I rarely get bored with it. Even off the wall episodes that turn out to be backdoor pilots for The Blacklist: Redemption are interesting and find new ways to tell stories. However, the big reveal towards the end of the episode, in which we find out (Spoilers: Only Warning) that Elizabeth Keen is alive and well, and that Mr. Kaplan indeed helped her fake her own death to get outta dodge, was just not surprising.

Surprise! The Blacklist Had Two Epic Finale Twists for You

19 May 2016 7:29 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Surprise! Or not. That thing you had an inkling was going to happen on The Blacklist totally happened in tonight's episode. As many people posited a few weeks ago when the show allegedly killed off its heroine, Liz Keen (Megan Boone), the FBI agent isn't actually dead after all! The season three finale showed us that Liz actually faked her death during childbirth as a way to escape from Red Reddington (James Spader). Hey, regardless of whether you saw it coming or not, it's certainly a relief that Liz is alive—although maybe not well—and with a new baby to boot. The problem she'll have to tackle in season four: escaping from the evil new villain who just kidnapped her »
