Corey Feldman Launches Campaign to Expose Hollywood Pedophile Ring

Corey Feldman Launches Campaign to Expose Hollywood Pedophile Ring
Corey Feldman has released a brave new video that details some of the troubles he's had over the past few days after announcing in the press that he plans to expose some of the powerful players in Hollywood that he knows, as a fact, are part of a pedophile ring. He is not just asking, but begging others in the Hollywood community to finally break their silence and come forward. He calls out some of his peers from the 80s, demanding that they speak up as quite a few woman have in the past two weeks, in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment scandal. You can see Corey Feldman's plea for help in the video below, which is part of a new campaign to crowd fund Corey Feldman's Truth Documentary that will allow Feldman and others to tell the truth about what is really going on.

‘Sea Sorrow’ Review: Vanessa Redgrave’s Directorial Debut Is a Plain But Passionate Call to End the Refugee Crisis — Cannes 2017

‘Sea Sorrow’ Review: Vanessa Redgrave’s Directorial Debut Is a Plain But Passionate Call to End the Refugee Crisis — Cannes 2017
Less a documentary than it is a 74-minute infomercial trying to sell European politicians on their own humanity, Vanessa Redgrave’s “Sea Sorrow” neither qualifies as art nor aspires to be considered as such — it’s far too urgent for interpretation. Funded by and featuring the legendary actress (newly minted as a director just a few months after her 80th birthday), this glorified PSA is essentially the negative image of Gianfraco Rosi’s “Fire at Sea.” Redgrave’s film is as direct as Rosi’s film is impressionistic, her plea as haphazard as his is elegant. Of course, the world is wide enough to support both approaches, and the situation is dire enough to demand them.

While much of “Sea Sorrow” speaks to its audience in the abstract language of history and statistics, Redgrave is wise to ground this portrait on a personal level. The film begins with a devastating

Tribeca Film Review: ‘Dabka’

Tribeca Film Review: ‘Dabka’
In the 1980s, what the average North American knew of Somalia he learned from Sally Struthers-hosted feed-the-children commercials. Then came Ridley Scott’s “Black Hawk Down,” which portrayed white actors beset by ululating black guerrillas, and a series of news reports in which Western ships were hijacked by small bands of Somali “pirates.” Each and every one of these depictions simplifies a civilization that, according to writer-director Bryan Buckley’s “Dabka,” needs to be recognized “as the incredibly complex people that they are” — a budding democracy struggling to assert itself among rivals with the power to steal their resources right out from under them.

So, that’s what’s progressive and good about “Dabka.” Unfortunately, best intentions aside, the film itself is a rowdy, often abrasive account of how a lone Canadian journalist had the chutzpah to actually travel to Somalia and investigate a situation that others were to skittish to cover.

‘Incorporated’ Review: This Vision of the Future Is Also the Scariest Show on TV
An upcoming episode of Syfy’s future-set drama “Incorporated” begins with this: a carbon copy of the sort of starving children ads that Sally Struthers used to host in the 1990s. There’s a wistful little boy staring at the camera as he strokes his battered stuffed toy and a pleading, pitying narrator explaining how he and other children like him go days without food or clean water.

Here’s the twist: The little boy’s name is Johnny, and the narrator is speaking Chinese. For 100 yuan a day, generous Chinese souls can help the children of a broken America in the year 2073. Watching that cold open at this exact moment in our history is science fiction that might be a little too real. You can forget about “The Walking Dead” or “The Exorcist”: “Incorporated” may be the scariest show on television.

However, there's no shortage of Stars Hollow residents that Bledel has a fondness for, including Babette Dell (Sally Struthers), Miss Patty (Liz Torres) and Kirk Gleason (Sean Gunn).

"Every time they would come to set they would like get together and sing show tunes," Bledel said of Struthers and Torres. "It was such a raucous [time] on set every day they were there, so I have to appreciate them."

The 35-year-old actress also addressed recent online criticism surrounding the Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life promo photos, in which Bledel

The Gilmore Girls Revival Is Everything I Wanted It to Be (and So Much More)

The Gilmore Girls Revival Is Everything I Wanted It to Be (and So Much More)
The Stars Hollow musical goes on about 2 minutes too long.

Exclusive: Norman Lear Interviewed By Cinema Retro's Eddy Friedfeld

Norman Lear- Just Another Version of You

By Eddy Friedeld

The first two people in my life who taught me to think deeply about social and political issues and argue cogently and passionately for what I believed in were my late father David and Norman Lear.

Lear, the 94-year-old entertainment icon is the subject of a terrific American Masters documentary: Norman Lear- Just Another Version of You, which premieres nationwide Tuesday, October 25, 9-10:30 p.m. on PBS.

Speaking from his home in Los Angeles about both the documentary and his masterful 2014 autobiography, Even This I Get to Experience, he still has an energy level that would put people a quarter of his age to shame.

“People think when you’re over 90 you’ve changed. It’s everyone else who’s changed. Suddenly I’m extremely wise,” Lear says. Charming and reflective, he explains why he wears the

All In The Family at 45: The Show That Couldn’t Be Made Today

  • Cinelinx
45 years ago, one of the most divisive shows ever made debuted and became the biggest hit of the 1970s. All In The Family hit the airwaves in 1971 and created a maelstrom of controversy. The non-pc humor of the show would never be tolerated today. However, was the show really racially insensitive or was it just using humor to cast some light on the ignorance and prejudices of the world?

Based on the Brit-com Till Death Do Us Part (which had debuted in 1965), the CBS series All In The Family (1971-1979) was a no-holds barred sitcom about working-class bigot Archie Bunker, an unapologetic racist, homophobic, sexist lout from Astoria, NY. Archie had an opinion on everything, and never failed to offend everyone. The character used inflammatory, non-pc language on a weekly basis. He regularly squared off with his liberal Democrat son-in law Mike in heated arguments about minorities, immigrants, women, non-Christians

Netflix Unveils ‘Gilmore Girls’ 2016 Release Date and New Clip

Netflix Unveils ‘Gilmore Girls’ 2016 Release Date and New Clip
It’ll be a very “Gilmore” Black Friday. All four 90-minute “chapters” of “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” will premiere on Netflix at midnight Pacific Time on Friday, Nov. 25, meaning that fans are officially 120 days from fresh quips from Lorelai and Rory.

To tide you over until then, Netflix has also released a clip featuring Alexis Bledel and Lauren Graham together again. They tease what’s to come while trading lines about Amy Schumer and John Oliver:

Schumer responded to the teaser, writing “I’ve only done two water sports and they took pictures of it both times. I promise I usually just lay there (sex too),” in reference to Rory telling Lorelai in the promo that Schumer wouldn’t like her because her mom is no fan of water sports.

The photo is the first piece evidence that McCarthy will be part of the four-part series “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life,” which is set to premiere sometime this year.

After much back-and-forth on whether McCarthy would return to the “Gilmore Girls” reboot (she had originally said she was not asked to return), the comedy superstar confirmed her reprisal this April on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” saying: “Literally about an hour and half ago we figured out

Vanessa Marano Teases Details on April’s Storyline in Netflix’s ‘Gilmore Girls’ Revival
Vanessa Marano is reprising her original “Gilmore Girls” role as April Nardini, daughter of Luke (Scott Patterson), in Netflix’s upcoming revival, and the actress dished some details on her storyline.

Marano, who stars on Freeform’s “Switched at Birth,” revealed to Variety this weekend that she will appear in the Netflix installment titled “Summer.”

The present-day reboot, which picks up eight years after the original series ended, is divided into four 90-minute episodes that each represent one season of a calendar year, thus titled “Winter,” Spring,” Summer” and “Fall.” While no premiere date has been set, the “Gilmore Girls” continuation will launch later this year.

Speaking to Variety on Saturday at the 2016 MTV Movie Awards — where she walked the red carpet with her sister, Laura Marano, who starred on Disney’s “Austin & Ally” (pictured above) — Marano teased, “April’s in college now, and she’s living the college life,

Here Are Three New 'Gilmore Girls' Revival Photos

Excitement for Netflix's upcoming "Gilmore Girls" revival has only continued to build since the streaming service officially announced it would produce four new 90-minute episodes. Last week, we got our first glimpse at the continued adventures of the residents of Stars Hollow, and now, Netflix has released an additional three images to whet fans' appetites.

The new photos feature the titular women -- Rory (Alexis Bledel), Lorelai (Lauren Graham), and Emily (Kelly Bishop) -- both in intimate one-on-one settings, as well as in one of our favorite recurring storylines: wacky town meetings. The image that features that latter event includes Luke (Scott Patterson) and Lorelai (who are still together -- yay!) looking aghast, probably at some boneheaded statement Taylor (Michael Winters) has made. Babette (Sally Struthers) appears similarly annoyed.

Next up is a chat between Lorelai and Rory, in the familiar kitchen of Lorelai's Stars Hollow home. The mother and daughter appear deep in conversation,

Melissa McCarthy to Return for ‘Gilmore Girls’ Revival as Sookie

Melissa McCarthy to Return for ‘Gilmore Girls’ Revival as Sookie
It looks like Sookie will be back after all.

After months of speculation — and both McCarthy and the series’ showrunner weighing in — McCarthy announced on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” that she’ll be returning for Netflix’s “Gilmore Girls” revival as Sookie.

“Literally about an hour and half ago we figured out that I’m gonna go back and do it and I am so excited,” she told DeGeneres. “And they are gonna be amazing.”

The episode of “Ellen” is set to debut on Friday.

McCarthy is one of the last series originals to be announced for the Netflix revival. Previously, showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino pointed to McCarthy’s “really f–king busy” schedule as the reason she wouldn’t be appearing in the show.

“Look, if Melissa is available and has an afternoon free, I’ll write her a scene,” she told TVLine in February. “Melissa was one of us.
