Meghan Trainor Premieres Emotional Music Video For “Better”

15 September 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Meghan Trainor’s music videos for her latest album Thank You have been filled with fun choreography, as clips for “No” and “Me Too” show off visuals that match the tone of the tracks effortlessly. Trainor decided to shake things up a bit though with her new single “Better,” as its video tugs on the heartstrings, taking a beautifully written narrative format in place of usual dance numbers.

At first glance, you wouldn’t think “Better,” which features rapper Yo Gotti, could be the kind of tune that has such a somber video to it. It’s not exactly a ballad, but it isn’t Trainor’s marquee pop powerhouse track, either. Instead, it’s a bare bones mid-tempo track with an addictive drum beat, and the music video for it complements it perfectly.

Starring actor Beau Bridges, the video appears more like a short film than it does a »

Films For Labor Day Weekend

3 September 2016 5:32 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Labor Day celebrates working people and the labor unions that brought working people the 40-hour work week, the 8-hour day, overtime pay, work-place safety, paid holidays and vacations, and a host of other protections and benefits. To honor those hard-working people and organized labor, here is a list (in no particular order) of a dozen worthy narrative films for Labor Day.

Norma Rae (1979)

For many people, the words “labor union” bring to mind the image of Sally Field standing up in defiance in “Norma Rae.” Field won an Oscar for her unforgettable, inspiring character, a worker in a Southern textile factory who becomes involved in labor organizing and stands up to management after the factory workers’ health is threatened in the workplace. This stirring drama, based on a true story, also stars Beau Bridges as Norma Rae’s husband Sonny and Ron Leibman as an union organizer from the Northeast. »

The Forgotten: Joe Dante's "The Second Civil War" (1997)

11 August 2016 2:35 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

The excellent retrospective of Joe Dante's subversive, eccentric cinema in New York at Bam this month includes all the expected classics, which can hardly be termed "forgotten"—"fondly remembered" would be more like it—but also some intriguing and more obscure pieces: The Film Orgy, a five-hour found footage riot; several items programmed by Dante, such as Anthony Mann's The Black Book (a.k.a. Reign of Terror) and Arthur Penn's existential art film Mickey One; and also some of Dante's TV work, much of which is far less well-known than it ought to be...Dante's episodes of cable show Masters of Horror are uniquely dark, savage affairs with strong political agendas—Homecoming (2005) was the first bit of American filmed drama to deal openly with the war in Iraq. The "serious comedy" of this all-out, take-no-prisoners assault on the Bush administration is anticipated by the »

Inside the Office of ‘Homeland’ Boss Alex Gansa

10 August 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As the executive producer of Showtime’s Emmy-winning “Homeland,” Alex Gansa has a more formal office on the Fox lot. But when it comes to getting the real work of his job done, he heads to the hideaway tucked behind his house in the Pacific Palisades. It’s in this bright, airy loft where he hunkers down for three hours every morning and night to write the series’ page-turning scripts. “The Internet is terrible up here, so I’m really isolated with the page and with my books,” he says. “It’s been such a sanctuary.”

Evil Does It

Through its five-season run to date, “Homeland” has a notorious lineup of villains who’ve driven the plot. When Shaun Toub, who played Javadi was being honored by an Iranian acting society, Gansa created a video presentation in his honor — hoping it might further his campaign for an Emmy guest actor nod, which »

Emmy Voters Suffer from Awards Lag Syndrome

18 July 2016 3:36 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

“You were robbed,” I told Jay Duplass at Amazon Studios’ “Gleason” premiere last week. He was a tad crestfallen about not landing a supporting actor Emmy nomination for his excellent performance as Josh Pfefferman on “Transparent,” until I reminded him how hard it is to get nominated for the first time. There’s often a lag.

Look at “The Americans.” It took four seasons of campaigning and increasingly positive reviews for it to finally land a Best Drama slot this year. The TV Academy turns to the same old popular favorites so often that it’s tough for someone new to break into the ranks.

This year, during the intense campaigning for the Emmy Awards, I realized that my hard-won understanding of how Oscar voters think does not apply to the TV Academy. I felt out of step with some of the Emmy pundits on Gold Derby who were picking »

‘Masters of Sex’ Creator Michelle Ashford on the Art of Showrunning (Emmy Video)

27 June 2016 5:28 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

“This is the weirdest, most fascinating relationship.” That was Michelle Ashford’s immediate response to the biography of pioneering sex researchers William Masters and Virginia Johnson, whose complex working and romantic partnership spanned 30 years.

With producing partner Sarah Timberman, Ashford brought the book to HBO and FX, but also to brand-new Showtime executive David Nevins, who immediately grasped the possibilities. Sure, the subject of sex was a lure for a premium cable programmer, but “not in the way you might think,” Ashford said. “He understood that the idea of looking at sex through a scientific lens would be weird, fascinating and fresh. It was not about showing perfect bodies. He knew that if we do sex, it was at least unusual enough to make people say they’d never seen sex like that before.”

Ashford initially believed Season 1 would parallel a year in the life of Masters and Johnson, but »
