Long before he wrote the wild, dramatic score for Batman and the twisted song cycle that runs through the beloved Nightmare Before Christmas, Danny Elfman's original claim to cinematic fame was far quirkier than anything he'd ever dream up for Tim Burton: He portrayed Satan, dressed in a long-tail white tux, conducting an orchestra of goblins in a run-through of every "hidey-hidey-hidey-ho" in Cab Calloway's "Minnie the Moocher." The episode, in the campy 1980 cult hit Forbidden Zone, found the redheaded composer wiggling, shimmying and writhing as he »
Timing is everything. On Friday, Oct. 30, just hours after Leah Remini sat down with ABC’s 20/20 in an exclusive interview about Scientology, Kirstie Alley took to social media to express her thoughts — in someone else’s words. The Look Who’s Talking star, 64, retweeted a post from pal Jenna Elfman, also a fellow Scientologist, that could be seen as a dig toward Remini, 45. “What is important to me? I give a damn about making the world a better place,” the quote read. “I care about seeing [...] »

Conan O'Brien asked The Doctor's current companion to give him a quick lesson on the BBC's long-running sci-fi series, and it's likely that she was squirming inside every time he called the Time Lord 'Doctor Who'. He has a long way to go.
In 2005, fans of Joss Whedon’s shiny space western “Firefly” had spent a couple years deploring the show’s cancelation on Fox, and the sci-fi series had only just begun to garner its cult following thanks to the power of the DVD. With support from its growing fanbase and with some persistence from Joss the Boss, the canceled series finally got a conclusion to the tale of the ragtag crew of the Firefly-class ship Serenity with the release of a feature film. That film — named for the crew’s beloved spaceship — was released in theaters 10 years ago today, on Sept. 30, 2005. The film featured all nine regular cast members of “Firefly,” along with Chiwetel Ejiofor in the antagonist role, years before his Oscar nomination, and a brief appearance from Sarah Paulson, before TV viewers would come to know her for “American Horror Story.” “Serenity” ultimately under-performed at the box office, »

It’s appropriate that Tamara is serving deviled eggs at her engagement party on Monday’s Awkward (MTV, 9/8c), because just like her impending marriage to Adam this shindig is guaran-damn-teed to go down in flames.

Jenna Dewan Tatum teamed up with choreographer Travis Wall on the season finale of So You Think You Can Dance last night, performing a passionate duet to Alabama Shakes's song "Give Me All Your Love." The crazy powerful performance was equal parts athleticism and artistry - with a healthy dose of sex appeal. The routine has us hoping Jenna starts sharing her dancing talents with the world at least as often as her husband, Channing, does. »

So you think you can be a super mom? Jenna Dewan-Tatum might just be able to! As the actress gears up for another show-stopping performance with Travis Wall, Mrs. Channing Tatum is giving fans a sneak peak of what fans can expect Monday night on the So You Think You Can Dance finale.

Dir/scr. Amy J Berg. Us, 2015, 103 mins.
Three decades before Amy Winehouse there was Janis Joplin, another dynamic, feisty, bluesy female vocalist whose life came to a tragic end at the rock world’s unlucky age - 27. A different Amy – documentary-maker Berg – pays joyous, moving tribute in this feature-length film to the girl from Port Arthur, Texas, whose breakout performance at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival ushered in a short but intense three-year period of rock fame before her death from a heroin overdose in October 1970.
If there’s one thing Janis: Little Girl Blue conveys brilliantly it’s the exuberant love for life and sense of fun that emanated from every pore of this snub-nosed singer.
Co-produced by PBS’ long-running American Masters series, Janis: Little Girl Blue is a classic rock documentary, told using a conventional but well-sifted mix of present-day and archive interviews with performance and backstage footage. It’s a good »
There wasn't a lot of movement Tuesday night in primetime but there were some fine moves from Seth Green, Cheryl Burke and Joe Jonas on Hollywood Game Night (1.4/5). With that action on board, the Jane Lynch-hosted show — which also had Michelle Trachtenberg, Jenna Elfman and Jeff Dye on last night — saw a strong 27% jump in adults 18-49 from last week. Coming off the double-digit drop of its August 25 show, last night's Hgn is just behind the 1.5 rating of its July 7… »
In 2018, it will be 20 years since the Can't Hardly Wait gang threw their epic graduation party on the big screen. The cast think it's about time for a reunion movie, and now is as good a time as any to start the hype machine. Will we see Can't Hardly Wait 2 become a reality over the course of the next two years? Lead actors Jennifer Love Hewitt and Ethan Embry sure hope so.
It happened this year with Wet Hot American Summer, which returned in the form of a Netflix series. Like that movie, Can't Hardly Wait has continued to grow a strong cult following over the years. It stands as a perfect time capsule for the 90s, especially in terms of clothing, slang and the social structure of the teenage movement at that time. 90s nostalgia is about to reach its crescendo soon, and this may be the perfect sequel to get us there. »
Ethan Embry had a very busy weekend. The actor took part in not one, but two different reunions in Los Angeles, celebrating a pair of '90s films that we still can't get enough of! First up: "Empire Records." Buzzfeed hosted a 20th anniversary screening of the flick on Friday evening, with a Q&A with the cast following the film. While Liv Tyler, Renee Zellweger and Rex Manning himself, Maxwell Caulfield, were Mia, Embry was joined by Robin Tunney, Johnny Whitworth, Coyote Shivers, director Allan Moyle and screenwriter Carol Heikkinen. We gotta hand it to them, this cast still looks amazing two decades later. Aj is dreamy as ever! During the panel, Tunney revealed that it was her idea to have her character shave her head. "Allan came to me and he’s like, ‘I think the studio wants to fire you ‘cause they think you’re kind of too cute to be depressed, »

"Catastrophe" is a delightful study in contradictions. It's a high-concept comedy with low-key execution, and it's at once filthy on a level that's impressive even in the year 2015, yet almost shockingly normal despite that. The series — its six-episode first season aired on Channel 4 on the UK earlier this year, and is now streaming on Amazon Prime — casts its stars and creators, Rob Delaney and Sharon Horgan, as an American businessman and an Irish schoolteacher who have a fling while he's on a week-long trip to the UK. They get on well enough to at least discuss seeing each other again the next time he's in town, but then Sharon discovers that she's pregnant and Rob decides to set his whole life aside to move in with her and help raise the baby. This is a premise from which rom-coms and sitcom hackery can be born — see "Accidentally On Purpose, »

“Big Stone Gap” was shot entirely on location in the coal-mining Virginia town of the same name, which is also Trigiani and Wilson’s hometown.

The deal will see Elfman working with Van Baelen’s Auro Technologies, using new immersive sound format Auro-3D on all three of the films.
The Auro-3D format is currently on display at the Cannes Film Festival in an Auro-3D theatre specially constructed next to the Auro offices and lounge on the Hotel Majestic Plage.
“As Forbidden Zone 2 is wall-to-wall music - to be released along with a video game - Auro-3D’s immersive sound will really knock the ball out of the park,” said Elfman »

Oh, dance fans, I had a hard time watching this episode of "Dancing with the Stars." Don't get me wrong, there's actually a lot of great dancing here for America's Choice and a trio round. The problem is, every couple to perform reminds me of last week's travesty: the heart-breaking elimination that sent home our beloved Willow. She should still be here, and it's disgusting to me that she's not. It's particularly hard to be objective about Chris and Robert when I'm still so angry over Willow's ouster.
But there's still lots to admire in this exciting "race to the semi-finals" episode, filled with chills, spills, high pressure, and even two birthdays. Yes, Erin is presented with a cake for her birthday, which she doesn't eat herself (women almost never eat on television) but shares with Tom for his 60th birthday on Wednesday. It's also America's Choice, as the fans »

Let's face it: Netflix has become a way to excuse yourself for watching 13 hours of television in a row. There's a thrill to the uninterrupted nature of it. Frankly, who cares about having friends? They're not as funny or sexy as TV characters. Think about that. And then, please think about these five underrated seasons of TV all streaming right now on Netflix. "Damages" season three The season-to-season reinvention of FX's "Damages" was sometimes only half-successful (particularly in the transition from three to four, when it went to DirecTV's Audience network), but I really think we've under-heralded the fabulous moments from the third season. By that year we'd already had the triumphant, basically flawless first season and an ultimately too-confusing second season (with some great work from Marcia Gay Harden), but the third season gave us a trio of wonderful additions: Martin Short as the chilling Leonard Winstone, Lily Tomlin »
