Robin Williams: Fears of a Clown

11 August 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

This story was originally published in the February 21st, 1991 issue of Rolling Stone.

Mr. and Mrs. Robin Williams are slow dancing. The time: a winter afternoon. The place: a photographer's studio in the Chelsea section of New York. The music: high-decibel funk. Everybody else in the studio is abuzz — adjusting lights, fussing with props, running back and forth from the kitchen with sushi. Still, Williams and his wife, Marsha, keep coming together in these quick, sweet tableaux. It's strange to see the thirty-nine-year-old actor and comedian with his guard down »

New DVD Blu-ray: 'Noah,' 'The Other Woman,' 'Twin Peaks'

29 July 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Moviefone's Top Blu-ray of the Week

"Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery"

What's It About? David Lynch's two season TV series had viewers riveted to figure out who killed the beaming blonde homecoming queen Laura Palmer. And maybe, just maybe, some of us fell a little in love with Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan), the curious FBI agent sent to investigate Laura's murder while enjoying many damn fine cups of coffee.

Why We're In: This ten-disc set comes with both seasons of "Twin Peaks," as well as the movie "Fire Walk With Me," plenty of featurettes, and deleted scenes (!!!!) from the beloved TV series. Not that we'll ever really know what happened in the strange little town of Twin Peaks, Wa.

New on DVD and Blu-ray

"Cuban Fury"

What's It About? Nick Frost ("The World's End," "Hot Fuzz," "Shaun of the Dead") stars as a down-and-out dude named »

Get into the Habit: The Top 10 Movie Nuns on the Big Screen

24 June 2014 1:53 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Spirituality in cinema has been expressed in various ways where the feel-good aspect of faith-based films are put to great use for emotional manipulation. The triumph and tragedy of religious themes in the movies have never been championed as much as when the protagonist at the helm is a loving nun. Film nuns come in all varieties: nurturing, helpful, complex, obstinate, crusading and flawed.

Get into the Habit: The Top 10 Movie Nuns on the Big Screen will take a look at some of the movies most colorful and notable women of the cloth. You decide…will these God-serving maidens give you a sense of uplifting forethought?

Get into the Habit: The Top 10 Movie Nuns on the Big Screen selections are (in alphabetical order according to film title):

1.)  Sister Agnes from Agnes of God (1985)

Jason Ritter And Aubrey Plaza Star In First Trailer For About Alex

23 June 2014 2:15 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Check out the first trailer for director Jesse Zwick’s About Alex.

Opening in theaters on August 8th, About Alex stars Aubrey Plaza, Jane Levy, Jason Ritter, Maggie Grace, Max Greenfield, Max Minghella and Nate Parker.

In 1983, a film was released titled The Big Chill. Featuring an ensemble cast of Tom Berenger, Glenn Close, Jeff Goldblum, William Hurt, Kevin Kline, Mary Kay Place, Meg Tilly, and JoBeth Williams, it was about a group of baby boomer college friends who reunite after fifteen years due to the suicide of a friend.

In About Alex, a circle of twenty-something friends reunite for a weekend away after one of them suffers an emotional breakdown.

Despite the group’s best efforts to keep it light and enjoy themselves, a tinderbox of old jealousies, unrequited love, and widening political differences leads to an explosion that, coupled with the flammable combination of drugs, wine, and risotto, »

Blu-ray, DVD Release: The Big Chill

16 April 2014 4:04 PM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: July 29, 2014

Price: Blu-ray/DVD Combo $39.95

Studio: Criterion

A group of reunited college friends hear it through the grapevine in The Big Chill.

The 1983 comedy-drama The Big Chill focuses on a group of thirty-somethings who reunite for the funeral of one of their friends and end up spending a weekend together, reminiscing about their shared pasts as children of the sixties and confronting the uncertainty of their lives as adults of the eighties.

Poignant and warmly humorous in equal measure, this baby boomer milestone made a star of writer-director Lawrence Kasdan (Body Heat) and is perhaps the decade’s defining ensemble film, featuring memorable performances by Tom Berenger (Inception), Glenn Close (Fatal Attraction), Jeff Goldblum (Morning Glory), William Hurt (Broadcast News), Kevin Kline (Queen to Play), Mary Kay Place (Being John Malkovich), Meg Tilly (Agnes of God), and JoBeth Williams (Timer).

The Definitive Religious Movies: 40-31

31 March 2014 8:11 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Part 2 of this list gets a bit more foreign. In fact, this may be the first full list that has more foreign-language films than English-language ones. Maybe English-speaking audiences aren’t as willing to watch religious films. Maybe films associated with religion come off as preachy or accusatory. Or maybe (most of) the films on this list have done it so well already that it doesn’t need to be done again.

40. Marketa Lazarová (1967)

Directed by František Vláčil

The film often credited as being the best to come out of the Czech Republic, Marketa Lazarová was based on the novel by Vladislav Vančura and is an early, biting narrative about the chasm of difference between paganism and its shift into Christianity in the Middle Ages, as the daughter of a lord is kidnapped and becomes the mistress of one of her kidnappers, a robber knight.
