Inside Danny Elfman's Twisted Cult Film 'Forbidden Zone'

6 November 2015 8:58 AM, PST | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

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 »

Kirstie Alley Retweets Jenna Elfman Quote Following Leah Remini Interview: "I'm Not Interested in Sensationalism"

31 October 2015 11:08 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

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 [...] »

Jenna Coleman tries to explain Doctor Who to Conan O'Brien: 'Do not apply logic, ever'

30 September 2015 5:04 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

It's hard for true Whovians to explain Doctor Who to a noob at the best of times, so we don't envy Jenna Coleman having to do so on Conan last night.

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.

Jenna gave Conan some sage words of advice when it comes to watching the show: "Do not apply logic, ever".

Conan was particularly confused as to how the hell Father Christmas got involved in the festive special last year, played by Nick Frost. It's a long story, but it worked at the time. Just about.

Jenna Coleman recently confirmed that she's quitting her role on as Clara Oswald in Doctor Who, but later said »

10 years ago today: Browncoats rejoiced when ‘Serenity’ opened in theaters

30 September 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

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, »

28 September 2015 8:35 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

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 Just Danced the Hell Out of a Super Sultry Alabama Shakes Song

15 September 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | | See recent Popsugar news »

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. »

Janis: Little Girl Blue

6 September 2015 10:33 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

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 »

‘Hollywood Game Night’ Ratings Jump, ‘Zoo’ Dips As NBC Wins Night

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… »

'Can't Hardly Wait' Cast Want a Reunion Movie

18 August 2015 8:54 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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. »

Review: Amazon's shockingly filthy, surprisingly sweet 'Catastrophe'

22 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"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, »

'Dancing With the Stars' Recap: America Chooses Well (So Far)

5 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

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 »

StreamFix: 5 Underrated Seasons of TV on Netflix Right Now

19 March 2015 2:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

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 »
