10 Times Batman Was A Total Jerk‏

8 July 2014 4:26 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


The Dark Knight, the Caped Crusader, Sir Hemingford Grey – whatever you want to call him, I think we can all agree that Batman is a hero. Even if the “super” part is contested – he’s just a man! A fabulously wealthy man! A fabulously wealthy man with a genius-level intellect and martial arts skills! He has no real powers! – the fact that Bruce Wayne’s crusade against crime in Gotham City and beyond is a noble one?

That’s pretty widely accepted. Everything he does is pretty heroic, from rescuing orphans to making sure The Joker stays locked up to using his aforementioned fabulous wealth for good causes. Good causes besides making super-duper sports cars, we mean.

Warner Bros.

But maybe we’ve got him all wrong. Maybe Batman isn’t the world’s greatest detective, the hero Gotham needs, or even an okay guy. Maybe Batman is really a total jerk, »

Video: Dolly Parton's 'Yakety Sax' Performance Will Make Your Day

1 July 2014 12:15 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Ok, you should probably just get ready to call it a day. Go ahead and pull your car keys out of your pocket and move your cursor toward the 'shut down' prompt on your computer screen, because this video is going to be the high point of today, if not your life: After you've watched Dolly Parton play "Yakety Sax" on a tiny rhinestone-encrusted saxophone, there's literally nothing left for you to accomplish. "I was feeling rather saxy today," the 68-year-old singer told the massive crowd at the Glastonbury Music Festival on Sunday. "I wanted to do something to impress you. »

Dolly Parton's Glastonbury 'miming' gets Kay Burley slinging the mud | Media Monkey

Sky News anchor hits out at 'disappointing' performance, sparking protests from Jason Manford, Boy George and others

Dolly Parton may have won universal front-page acclaim for her performance at Glastonbury but Sky News veteran Kay Burley wasn't impressed. She accused the singer on Twitter of miming on stage, adding "how disappointing":

Oh, Dolly is miming. How disappointing

@JasonManford: @KayBurley noooooooo?!?! Please don't say she is! x well, Jolene was deffo helped along.... X

You bitch "@BoyGeorge: @KayBurley Leave our Dolly alone! Or I will tell about the fake tan and insteps too! Lol!

The Essential Boy George: Ranking His Top Ten Songs

13 June 2014 7:42 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Boy George has been a part of our lives for well over thirty years, and was one of the first great stars of the MTV generation. As quickly as his star rose, though, it fell to earth, thanks to years of substance abuse.

Now clean and sober, he’s never been to scale those early heights again, but he’ll always be our Boy George, a reminder of the fun of early 80′s pop music, and we’ll always have that voice … soulful, vulnerable, and warm.

This weekend is his 53rd birthday, so let’s take a look back and name our favorite George hits, both solo and with Culture Club. These ten songs are a good way to start your Essential Boy George Collection.

10. Live My Life

Year: 1988

Album: Hiding Out

Chart Peak: #40

His first solo entry on the Hot 100, it’s from the soundtrack of Hiding Out, and »

How's this for the ultimate #Tbt? Here I am with someone from waayyyyyy back in the day -- Boy George.

My South Carolina hometown friends and I Loved Culture Club. Boy George, in particular.

This was before all the social media that permeates our society today, so we learned about most music from MTV. As you can imagine, we had never seen anything like Boy George or Culture Club! We loved his voice and the music... but the fashion, oh, the fashion!

Hot Mess Alert! Lady Gaga Wears the Worst Parts of the '80s

12 June 2014 | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

We should probably just be grateful that Lady Gaga is wearing actual clothes and not some insane costume, but this look may as well be a Halloween horror contest entry. It's like the "Applause" singer rummaged through old bins of her mother's clothes and picked out the absolute worst combo from the box labeled "1979 through 1990." We know the New York native was just a kid when these looks came and went, but she should have seen enough Flashdance to know that this look says "streetwalker" and not "vintage style icon."  And yet the giant teased hair and silk jacket put an immediate smile on our faces. Yes, it's way too Pink Ladies take the Culture Club, but that's »

Junkfood Cinema: Return to Horror Clooney

3 June 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

This week, Cargill and I go outside the Actor’s Studio to examine the early horror films of one Mr. George Clooney, or as you may now know him: God-King of Hollywood. Back in the glory days, the all-or-nothing days, before bestriding the narrow world like a colossus, Clooney was a struggling actor same as countless others, forced to take roles in b-horror outings in order to pay the rent. However, these horror films each had something special and of surprisingly quality to offer. Most interesting of the bunch is the never-released Grizzly II, on which Cargill and I go into startling detail. We also announce our July 4th appearance at CONvergence in Minneapolis! Can’t venture to America’s Hoth that weekend? No problem! We’ll be recording an episode during the Con and will make it available to you, our beloved Junkies, directly thereafter. You should follow Brian (@Briguysalisbury), Cargill (@Massawyrm), and the show (@Junkfoodcinema »

Tessa Watts obituary

18 May 2014 6:35 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Pioneering producer of music videos who worked with Boy George, George Michael and the Sex Pistols

Tessa Watts, who has died of pancreatic cancer aged 68, was a pioneering British producer of music videos and a critical figure in the history of Virgin Records. In her time, what began as simple promotional devices for songs grew into a billion-dollar global industry, serviced by MTV, the 24-hour Us music television channel, whose European launch she oversaw in 1986.

George Michael, Culture Club, Beyoncé, the Sex Pistols, Madonna, the Human League and Genesis were among the many artists she worked, and several of the young directors she supervised, notably David Fincher and Michael Bay, went on to big Hollywood careers. She once estimated that she had made at least 1,500 music videos.

The things action movie heroes get up to on their days off

Nb: This article contains certain words and images which may be considered unsafe for work.

When asked what he did between acting jobs, Robert Duvall once said, "Hobbies, hobbies and more hobbies." This is fair enough because, to quote James Bond, "everybody needs a hobby." Bond himself has all kinds of things to do in his spare time: playing Baccarat and Poker, talking to exotic ladies and drinking Martinis. For all we know, Bond might also be into origami and bell ringing.

The question is, what do other action heroes get up to when they're not shooting bad guys, blowing up trucks or rescuing their daughters from Val Verde? In most movies, we never find out. But in very, »

Peaches Geldof Autopsy: Model's Cause Of Death Still Unknown

8 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Peaches Geldof was found dead on Monday at her home in Kent, London, and investigators are still at a loss as to what caused her sudden death.

Peaches Geldof's Cause Of Death Unknown

Geldof, who was 25-years-old, did not leave a suicide note, nor was there any drug paraphernalia on hand at her home. Autopsy results proved inconclusive, according to UK police. While police are still looking into what may have caused Geldof’s death, they are treating it “as a non-suspicious, unexplained sudden death," reported CNN. Toxicology reports are pending, and are likely to take several weeks for results.

Daughter to musician Bob Geldof and late TV presenter Paula Yates, Geldof was also well-known in her own right. By 15, she’d written her first article for Elle magazine. She later went on to launch a modeling career and worked as a TV presenter. Her death shocked those in the entertainment and fashion worlds, »

Secrets of Bones; Secrets of the Vatican – TV review

26 March 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Why do you never come across an impotent walrus? All is revealed in Secrets of Bones

It wasn't immediately obvious what to review today. I'm looking at secrets – of the Vatican, briefly, but first Secrets of Bones (BBC4), with Ben Garrod, an affable sort of chap you could easily imagine having a pint with. A bit like Jimmy Docherty, but Ben actually has an area of expertise. More like George the Restoration Man perhaps. Ben the Bone Man.

Does television really have the need for a full-time bone man though? Maybe not, but then Ben does other things. Well, he articulates skeletons – as in he puts them together, for museums, universities etc, he doesn't just say the word, clearly and coherently, over and over again, until the phone rings from the BBC.

We've reached the end of this absorbing little six-part series, and Ben's ending where it all begins: sex. »

Ashlee Simpson vs. Boy George: Who Wore It Best?

18 March 2014 1:15 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

The '80s called and they're loving Ashlee Simpson's look! The 29-year-old singer landed at Lax airport on Sunday, March 16, looking like a blast from the past. For her casual airplane attire, Simpson accessorized her simple tan coat and skinny jeans with a wide-brimmed black hat. She also wore two skinny braids on either side of her face. Having a case of deja vu? The look is eerily similar to '80s singer Boy George's style. The gender-bending Culture Club frontman, now 52, was known for wearing a black [...] »

Gogglebox turns viewers into TV stars

24 February 2014 4:26 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Channel 4's programme showing how people react as they watch at home has become the year's entertainment hit

Gogglebox, which recorded sofa-bound families as they talked about what they were watching on television, slipped on to Channel 4 last March without much fanfare. Within a few weeks it had become the freshest entertainment hit of the year, winning a clutch of awards.

Gogglebox has now been promoted to a 9pm slot for its return on 7 March in an extended, 24-part run. It is also growing from 45 minutes to an hour, and the 10-strong roster of the original contributors (they are all returning) is being freshened up with four new sets, including a wealthy family from the shires and two young men from Northern Ireland. They will be asked to watch more news and current affairs than in the last series and there will be more footage on the lives of the contributors. »
