Mistresses Recap: Pill Street Blues

22 August 2016 8:17 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

There are things to celebrate about this week’s Mistresses: the absence of bratty teen Lucy and awful Aussie Kate, the jaw-dropping beauty of Karen’s blue lace dress, and especially the insanity of Lydia dropping in during her boss’ “appetizer” course.

But like Elizabeth Grey sans martini or Josslyn Carver without a zippy punchline, there’s a certain spice missing from Season 4, Episode 10 — and that’s why I’d put it near the very bottom of my all-time Mistresses episodes ranking.

New Jersey Mom Creates Fashionable Clothes for 'Differently-Abled' Son: 'He's Seen Me Turn a Problem Into Something Amazing'

1 June 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Mindy Scheier, 44, is a fashion designer by trade with a flare for bold outfits. "Since I was a little girl, the reason I wanted to be in fashion was because it allows you to be who you want to be," she tells People. "I love to stand out." But for her son Oliver, 11, who has rigid spine muscular dystrophy - a rare degenerative disorder that affects his muscle tone and causes him to need leg braces - standing out because of his personal style wasn't an option.

From ‘American Crime’ to ‘The Americans’: Teen Takeover of TV’s Prestige Drama

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

A funny thing happened on TV while the adults were busy having affairs and plotting political coups. Their kids slowly took over their shows.

Until recently, whether they were used as writers’ ploys to delve deeper into another character — think a doe-eyed Meadow Soprano asking her mob boss dad the question he’s been dreading — or straight-up stupid (“24’s” not-so-epic battle between Kim Bauer and a mountain lion), teen characters on dramas geared toward adults rarely commanded respect.

“I found that depictions of teenagers in television tend to be pretty weak. And it tends to be pretty obvious and very clear that these are characters being written by, usually, men in their 40s or 50s and it creates not-interesting characters,” says Connor Jessup [“Falling Skies”], who stars as Taylor Blaine on the second season of ABC’s anthology series “American Crime,” created by John Ridley.

First Ecstatic Reactions For Shane Black’s ‘The Nice Guys’ Starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe

5 May 2016 6:31 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

While Hollywood’s summer kicks off this Friday with a certain superhero showdown, the first studio feature we’re genuinely excited for this season will arrive in two weeks. Shane Black‘s The Nice Guy marks his return to the world of crime comedy, his last foray coming over a decade ago with the excellent Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe, the 1970s-set tale follows tough guy Jackson Healy and private detective Holland March, who are working on a missing-person case.

Ahead of its release on May 20th, and even before its Cannes premiere on May 15th, Warner Bros. held the first screening last night at Austin’s Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. Complete with a post-screening Q&A featuring Gosling, Crowe, Black, and producer Joel Silver, we now have the first reactions. These are overwhelmingly positive, so it looks like Black has once again hit it out of the park. »

8 April 2016 10:36 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Does “Hardcore Henry” do a better job than the video games it emulates of portraying multi-dimensional female characters? Much could be written about the film’s characterizations of women as victims, prostitutes, and liars. But the names of their characters, as identified by IMDb, should tell you everything you need to know.

Sarah Wayne Callies interview: The Other Side Of The Door

Sarah Wayne Callies chats to us about The Other Side Of The Door and The Walking Dead...

When I first spoke to Sarah Wayne Callies in 2014 for the release of the joyous disaster movie delights of Into The Storm, it took a while to adjust to the completely different persona she exudes in real life, compared to the often quiet and maternal characters she’s played over the years. Filled with a blunt and refreshing honesty, she’ll happily share experiences – good and bad, while punctuating the air with an occasional swear word, making her an incredibly easy person to talk to.

We caught up with her, complete with cold, to discuss her latest role in The Other Side Of The Door, a horror movie that is as much a tragic family drama, as it is a grisly ghost story. Directed by Brit Johannes Roberts, the story »

Berlin: Culinary Cinema Serves Up Tasty Films

14 February 2016 1:28 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Despite the idea you might get from the name — never mind the haute cuisine that accompany the films in its main program — Culinary Cinema might arguably be the most deliberately political section of the festival.

Section director Thomas Struck’s motto is “Make Food Not War.” “That is due to the current political situation and the idea that food is the basic peace bringer,” says Struck. “If you don’t want to kill your opponents, which in the end is never successful, you have to negotiate — you have to sit together and eat together.”

Now in its 10th season, the program developed out of the influence and early relationships with slow-cooking advocate/activists Alice Waters and Carlo Petrini, and for Struck, cooking represents the connection between social and ecological concerns. “When we lose, or forget about, the ability to cook,” Struck explains, “we lose a basic part of being a human being. »

5 Disney Villains Whose Origin Stories We Want to See

7 January 2016 12:00 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

With the news that Emma Stone is in talks to play Cruella de Vil in a movie exploring the character's origins - a movie pitch that presumably followed in the wake of Maleficent's success - we started thinking about some of our other favorite Disney villains whose origins we'd like to see explored in feature-length form. Ursula, from The Little Mermaid Obviously, it's just going to be called Ursula, and Colton Haynes already did the costume about as well as anyone could, so let's just give it to him. Apparently, the film's original script called for Bea Arthur to voice the character, »
