30 Years of Trash: The true story behind The Garbage Pail Kids Movie

20 August 2017 11:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

On its 30th anniversary, Luke Owen revisits The Garbage Pail Kids Movie

“This is it. The worst. The absolute worst. No story, no character, no plot, just pain. Pure concentrated pain. There has never been anything this bad in the history of man. It should be studied, it should be analysed. It is pure evil. I don’t know whether to give it to a doctor to examine or a priest to exorcise. It is remarkable. Absolutely remarkable. Even the closing credits hurt. Everything about this movie is plain horrendous.” – Doug “Nostalgia Critic” Walker

They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. During the late 1960s, Art Spiegelman tried this theory when he worked on revival of a series of gum card stickers called Wacky Packages, which parodied all kinds of consumer products from food to floorwax, and the novelty lasted deep into 1970s. By the mid-1980s, »

Episode 184 – Mark Robson’s Valley of the Dolls

15 July 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

This time on the podcast, David Blakeslee and Catherine Stebbins discuss the 1967 Hollywood blockbuster Valley of the Dolls.

Cutthroat careerism, wild sex, and fierce female protagonists are all on offer in this adaptation of Jacqueline Susann’s sensational and wildly popular novel. Patty DukeBarbara Parkins, and Sharon Tate star as three friends attempting to navigate the glamorous, pressurized world of big-time show business—the “valley” is not a place but a narcotized state of mind, and the “dolls” are the pills that rouse them in the morning and knock them out at night. Blending old-fashioned gloss with Madison Avenue grooviness, director Mark Robson’s slick look at the early days of sexual liberation and an entertainment industry coming apart was a giant box-office hit, and has become an unforgettably campy time capsule of the 1960s.

Emmy Nomination Burning Questions: How Far Can ‘This Is Us,’ Millie Bobby Brown and ‘SNL’ Ride Their Waves?

13 June 2017 12:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It feels like Emmy season has already been going on for months – and it technically has, thanks to For Your Consideration events, which started in the spring, but now will pick up in intensity and frequency. For now it’s truly showtime: Phase One ballots have been sent to the more than 20,000 members of the Television Academy, and voting is underway.

After all the screenings, campaigning and coverage, it’s now up to the voters to decide. The ultimate category nominations will be revealed on Thursday, July 13, at the Television Academy’s Saban Theatre in North Hollywood. (And then we’re on to the final competition!)

But before the first round of voting ends on June 26, here are some of this year’s burning questions inside the Primetime Emmy race:

Exclusive: Breaking Down the 7 Best 'Leftovers' Musical Moments From the Final Season

30 May 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The Peabody award-winning The Leftovers concludes on Sunday, June 4 and through its three seasons, the show has become just as acclaimed for its music as its incredible story, writing and acting.

While the HBO series is no stranger to change (season one's opening titles used an original piece by composer Max Richter, and season two used Iris DeMent's "Let the Mystery Be"), season three has gone even further, adapting the theme song to each episode. "[It was showrunner] Damon Lindelof's decision," music supervisor Liza Richardson tells Et by phone, adding that the music choices on the series vary between her and Lindelof's allegiance to certain artists, love of repetition and the desire to "surprise." 

Exclusive: Damon Lindelof on Ending ‘Leftovers’ in the Wake of ‘Lost

"Hopefully all the main title choices are all very surprising for the audience, whether you know the song or not," she says. And while title choices serve as an ode to that specific »

It Came From The Tube: The Babysitter (1980)

7 May 2017 8:28 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

So far in this column, the default setting for TV horror has been the supernatural; usually ghosts (vengeful division), and a cult or two (whether it be Satan or crops). However, I would be remiss if I didn’t tend to any unusual domestic activities on a more human scale. This brings us to The Babysitter (1980), Peter Medak’s chilling tale of live-in help with some serious boundary issues. She doesn’t do windows, but she will do away with you and your family.

Originally airing on Friday, November 28th, 1980 as part of the ABC Friday Night Movie, The Babysitter as well as NBC’s Friday Night at the Movies would get trounced by CBS’ top rated shows The Dukes of Hazzard and Dallas, but those were number two and one in the land, so nobody was breaking through that block, not even the nanny from Hell.

Feud Recap: Tarnished Gold

2 April 2017 7:59 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Sunday’s Feud: Bette and Joan took us to the 1963 Oscars, where there was, remarkably, only a single contender in the category of Least Gracious Non-Nominee: a certain Miss Crawford. How ugly did it get? Pour yourself a stiff one — you’re going to need it if you plan to read on.

‘Feud’ at the Oscars: Ryan Murphy on Joan Crawford, Bette Davis and Recreating Academy History

2 April 2017 10:41 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The fifth episode of FX’s “Feud,” titled “And the Winner is… (The Oscars of 1963),” is perhaps the most delicious installment of Ryan Murphy’s limited series yet. Airing Sunday night, it recounts all of the skullduggery that went down in the lead-up to, and at, the 35th annual Academy Awards, as all-too-human actress Joan Crawford (Jessica Lange) desperately clamors for a piece of the spotlight she ceded when she lost out on a nomination to “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?” co-star Bette Davis (Susan Sarandon).

The detail is meticulous, right down to the nail polish and the hors d’oeuvres toothpicks, which Murphy — a self-confessed Oscar junkie — delighted in. But while the episode was an opportunity for him to share a bit of that passion in his own work, it also afforded a chance to dig in deeper on his characters.

Jennifer Aniston Tears Up Paying Tribute to Bill Paxton Before Emotional 'In Memoriam' at Oscars 2017

26 February 2017 9:07 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

As the 89th Annual Academy Awards approached, it was already clear that this year's "In Memoriam" segment was going to be one of the most heartbreaking in recent memory. This was only further cemented by the untimely death of veteran actor Bill Paxton one day before the ceremony.

Jennifer Aniston came out to present the tribute to those in the movie industry we lost over last 12 months, and got emotional as she tearfully remembered Paxton, whom she called her "friend" and "cherished member of our Hollywood family."

Watch: Bill Paxton, Star of ‘Twister’ and HBO’s ‘Big Love,’ Dies at 61

Singer Sara Bareilles led the touching "In Memoriam" with a rendition of Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now." The powerful performance was a perfect tribute to their memories.

Oscars In Memoriam: Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds, Gene Wilder, Others Honored

26 February 2017 8:37 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sara Bareilles helped the Academy pay tribute to lives lost this year during the Oscarcast’s In Memoriam segment. The “Waitress” songstress sang Judy Collins’ “Both Sides Now” while the annual video honored Carrie FisherDebbie ReynoldsJohn Hurt, Mary Tyler Moore, Anton Yelchin, Prince, Garry Marshall, Ken Howard, and more.

The cutoff for including deaths in the segment is usually around Jan. 31. Therefore, David Bowie was included in last year’s Oscar ceremony. Bill Paxton, who died Saturday, was remembered by an emotional Jennifer Aniston before she introduced the segment.

The segment saluted the more recognizable names and faces in addition to below-the-line creatives and executives. As in years past, the Academy asked attendees to hold their applause until the end to avoid favoritism and any disrespect toward the lesser-known honorees.

Oscars 2017: Sara Bareilles to Perform During 'In Memoriam' -- Why It Will Be the Saddest Ever

23 February 2017 1:10 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

2016 saw the unexpected and untimely deaths of a slew of beloved icons and screen legends, which means viewers can expect one monumental In Memoriam segment at the 89th Annual Academy Awards on Sunday.

It was announced on Thursday that Sara Bareilles will be performing during the emotional tribute. "Sara’s unique artistry will honor those we’ve lost in our community including familiar faces and those behind the scenes who have enriched the art of moviemaking," producers Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd said in a statement.

Movie Poster of the Week: “Singin’ in the Rain” and 2016 In Memoriam

14 January 2017 12:03 PM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

December 28, 2016. R.I.P. Debbie Reynolds, actress and singer. Age 84.There is a nice moment in the documentary Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds where Carrie’s brother Todd is showing the filmmakers a wall in his living room that tells the story of his mother’s life through movie posters. When Debbie Reynolds passed away on December 28—the day after her daughter Carrie in what was certifiably the last straw of 2016— I tried to find a great poster to commemorate her, but I couldn’t find anything really worthy of her (she was rarely the star of her own posters for one thing). I had forgotten, however, about this lovely Italian poster for Singing’ in the Rain which captures her as the burst of sunshine she always was.More often than I would have liked last year I found myself using my Movie Poster of the Day Tumblr as a memorial, »
