7 Bodacious '80s Babes You (Probably) Forgot About

31 July 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Don't you... forget about them. They are the ladies that helped define '80s film and television, and if you're of a certain age, one of these stone cold foxes surely made an impact on you at some point. Their careers didn't go the way of Meryl Streep and you may have trouble remembering their names in casual convos now, but these women shall not fall into obscurity. No, sir. Here are 7 stunners among the hottest actresses of 1980s cinema and TV you should remember.

Five "Must-See" Movies for August 2015

31 July 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Well, it's finally August, and while the summer movie season isn't completely over it might as well be. This article was a difficult one to put together, because there just isn't much to recommend this month. But you know what, that's okay, I think I managed to pull together five solid titles for the "must-see" section, and lucky for us the fall festival season is just around the corner, which means things are about to heat up exponentially on the prestige movie front just in time to compensate for things cooling down outside as the seasons change. (I should note here, it is currently 106 degrees fahrenheit here in the desert, and the thought of things cooling down is marvelous, but also very premature.) We are coming off what turned out to be a pretty solid month last month, in my opinion, as I settled back into my routine after a »

Diablo Cody on Meryl Streep and leaving Twitter: 'It's become a circle jerk'

30 July 2015 1:32 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Diablo Cody, a.k.a. Brook Maurio, won an Oscar for writing "Juno" in 2007, but since her hailed debut, she's delivered more complicated, unconventional, and hair-raising movie scripts featuring women in starring roles. "Jennifer's Body" gave us Megan Fox as a zombified cheerleader; "Young Adult" offered up Charlize Theron as a jaded, sociopathically self-absorbed writer who pines for her high school boyfriend. Even 2013's "Paradise," Cody's directorial debut starring Julianne Hough, focused on a religious woman who rebuilds her life in Las Vegas following a traumatizing accident. Now, Cody's giving us yet another antiheroine with "Ricki and the Flash," her new film starring Meryl Streep as a rocker and wayward mother who returns to her Midwestern roots when daughter Julie (Mamie Gummer, Streep's real-life daughter) experiences a devastating breakup. With director Jonathan Demme at the helm and a spellbinding cast (Streep, Gummer, Kevin Kline, Rick Springfield, Audra McDonald, and more »

Watch: The Brilliant Brie Larson in ‘Room’

30 July 2015 9:38 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

If early buzz is any indicator (and it usually is) Brie Larson has just launched herself into the awards season race. The indie actor stars in A24’s “Room,” a tense drama directed by Lenny Abrahamson co-starring Joan Allen, William H. Macy, and Jacob Tremblay. The screenplay by Emma Donoghue is based on her novel of the same name, about a five-year-old boy held captive in a single room for years with his mother. If that sounds like emotionally fraught material, that’s because it is—just watch the teaser trailer. Larson, who can be seen on the big screen today in Amy Schumer’s “Trainwreck,” has been on everyone’s radar since her appearances in the acclaimed “Short Term 12” and last year’s “The Gambler.” She beat out her friend Shailene Woodley for the role in “Room,” which Woodley predicted would be “a masterpiece.” It’s too early to say, »

The man who brought Chucky to life has died

28 July 2015 11:46 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

N. Brock Winkless IV, the puppeteer who brought Chucky to life in a total of four "Child's Play" films, has died at the age of 56. According to MakeupMag.com, Winkless suffered from a "debilitating neurological condition that caused him rising levels of discomfort and lack of muscular control for more than 15 years. He died as the result of complications due to that condition." Though he wasn't well-known outside the horror and special effects communities, Winkless helped bring a number of well-known characters to life, from Chucky to the Cryptkeeper to Arnold Schwarzenegger's T-800 in "Terminator 2: Judgment Day." MakeupMag notes that he particularly excelled at syncing up a puppet's "mouth and jaw movements" in order to make their "delivery" of dialogue appear more realistic. His other credits included "Alien 3," "Death Becomes Her," "Casper," "Congo" and "The X Files, and his most frequent collaborator was special makeup effects designer Kevin Yagher, »

New Trailer For Ricki And The Flash

28 July 2015 9:35 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It’s the sneaky Marvel/DC crossover no-one expected! Yes, with the presence of The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) and someone playing The Flash the stakes couldn’t be…. Sorry, we’re now being told that this is actually the latest trailer for Meryl Streep’s new family drama/comedy Ricki And The Flash. No superheroes required, unless you count The Streepster herself. Which we do. Jonathan Demme is behind the camera for this one, directing a Diablo Cody script about a rocker who essentially gave up everything for her chance at musical stardom. She’s used to being on tour, but when her long-suffering ex-husband Pete (Kevin Kline) calls to say their daughter Julie (Streep’s real-life spawn Mamie Gummer) has been jilted by her husband-to-be, she’s forced to confront the realities of the family she left behind. Naturally, there’s a little rebonding to be done, especially »

Watch: New Trailer, Clip, Soundtrack Details And More For 'Ricki And The Flash' Starring Meryl Streep

28 July 2015 6:34 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In 2008, Meryl Streep scored a summer smash with a little help from Abba in the musical romantic comedy "Mamma Mia." Now she's strapping on a guitar and hoping to hit all the right notes again for a seasonal hit with "Ricki And The Flash," but will it be a case of a sophomore slump? Or can she score another number one? Certainly, the elements involved are potentially promising. Diablo Cody ("Juno," "Young Adult") has penned the screenplay with Jonathan Demme ("Rachel Getting Married," "Silence Of The Lambs") directing the movie about an aging rocker who has spent more time on the road than at home, who reconnects with her children who are going through various crises. You can get a taste of the drama and comedy this one is putting together with the new trailer below, but that's not all. Jenny Lewis and Johnathan Rice wrote the song "Cold One" for the movie, »

Mister Fincher and Monsieur Dreyer

"The enjoyment of a work of art, the acceptance of an irresistible illusion, constituting, to my sense, our highest experience of "luxury," the luxury is not greatest, by my consequent measure, when the work asks for as little attention as possible. It is greatest, it is delightfully, divinely great, when we feel the surface, like the thick ice of the skater's pond, bear without cracking the strongest pressure we throw on it. The sound of the crack one may recognise, but never surely to call it a luxury." —Henry James, from The Preface to The Wings of the Dove (1909) "[The critic’s] choice of best salami is a picture backed by studio build-up, agreement amongst his colleagues, a layout in Life mag (which makes it officially reasonable for an American award), and a list of ingredients that anyone’s unsophisticated aunt in Oakland can spot as comprising a distinguished film.
