Ramsay Bolton Wants You to Know That He's Not a Bad Guy, Really

27 May 2016 1:36 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

If we had to guess lyrics that Game of Thrones' Ramsay Bolton might sing, "People think I'm scary, but I'm gentle as a baby duck" wouldn't come to mind. But for the 2016 Red Nose Day campaign (which raises money for children in need), Ramsay actor Iwan Rheon teamed up with other famous "bad guys" Danny Trejo and Steve Buscemi to create a hilarious musical spectacular about the struggle of being mistaken for mean dudes. Hearing Rheon sing "I'm not really mean, I just happen to look that way" will make you feel a little guilty for your intense hatred of Ramsay and his horrific actions, but the fact that the actor is perceived as mean says loads about his impressive performance! Give the Red Nose Day song a listen, and you'll feel a little more kindly toward talented-but-typecast actors in the future. »

On this day in pop culture history: ‘Top Gun’ premiered, ‘Seinfeld’ killed Susan

16 May 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

30 years ago today, Navy fighter pilot hotshots Maverick, Iceman, and Goose first flew across big screens around the world. It was on May 16, 1986 that Top Gun opened in theaters. Already well on his way to becoming a household name thanks to 1983’s Risky Business, Tom Cruise became a certified movie star with the release of Top Gun. It was also the first hit for director Tony Scott, who went on to direct other action flicks and thrillers like Crimson Tide, Man on Fire, and Déjà Vu (which reunited him with Top Gun star Val Kilmer) before his death in 2012. Top Gun, a slick, upbeat, Reagan-era ode to masculinity, boasted a memorable soundtrack (with Berlin’s “Take My Breath Away” and Kenny Loggins’ “Danger Zone”), impressive dogfights, an endlessly quotable though often goofy script, and, upon its release, immediate box office success. It became the highest grossing movie of 1986. Also on this day, »

Eurovision Song Contest: An 'Expert' Take on What to Expect from U.S. Debut

13 May 2016 11:51 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

For the first time in its 61-year history, the Eurovision Song Contest will be broadcast live in the States Saturday (3/2c, Logo). And, since I’m as close to an expert on the subject as anyone on the TVLine staff — I co-wrote Austria’s winning entry in 2014 and have had three other songs reach the finals — I thought maybe I was the right person to give you some idea of what to expect from the mega-popular continent-wide competition. (Last year’s audience was a record-breaking 197 million viewers worldwide.) Ready? Here goes…

30 Things We Learned from the Planet Terror Commentary

5 May 2016 7:31 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

“A lot of this was done at the very last minute.”

2007’s Grindhouse experiment between Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino was viewed as something of a misfire upon its initial release, but in the years since it’s enjoyed something of a reappraisal. Most viewers seem to have a strong opinion as to which of the two films is best, but regardless of where you land on that point there’s no denying that Rodriguez’s Planet Terror is far more attuned to the “grindhouse” aesthetic.

Where Death Proof feels like a slickly produced Tarantino film, Planet Terror is a gloriously intentional mess of jarring cuts, cheap tropes, B-movie dialogue, and crowd-pleasing beats. It’s not great cinema, but it’s a hell of a lot of fun and one of Rodriguez’s most consistently entertaining movies.

Keep reading to see what I heard on the Planet Terror commentary!

’3-Headed Shark Attack’ Review

27 March 2016 3:18 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Karrueche Tran, Jason Simmons, Rob Van Dam, Danny Trejo, Jena Sims, Brad Mills, Scott Thomas Reynolds | Written by Jacob Cooney, Bill Hanstock | Directed by Christopher Olen Ray

It seems oh-so-obvious, but would you believe me if I told you that 3-Headed Shark Attack is a sequel to the 2012 film 2-Headed Shark Attack? Well it is. And both films come from Christopher Olen Ray, son of legendary (well at least in my house) B-movie director Fred Olen Ray, and director of the fantastic, and criminally over-looked, action flick Mercenaries. Ray is also one of the best director that purveyors of Syfy channel shlock, The Asylum, currently have on their roster.

Of course your enjoyment of this film depends entirely on whether or not you’re a fan of the un-ironically bad films that The Asylum – and the Syfy channel – have made their stock and trade. For me their films are »

Harker’s Hits: February 15!

15 February 2016 4:19 PM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

Despite Deadpool smashing all box-office records in every corner of the world ($132.7 million in Three Freaking Days — and that’s just in North America!), that’s not the only news that broke this Valentine’s weekend.

In case you, too, were ensconced in a Ryan Reynolds bubble since Friday, take a gander at these other developments:
