‘The Town That Dreaded Sundown’ Review

18 March 2015 11:03 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Addison Timlin, Veronica Cartwright, Anthony Anderson, Travis Tope, Joshua Leonard, Andy Abele, Gary Cole, Edward Herrmann, Ed Lauter, Arabella Field, Denis O’Hare | Written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Earl E. Smith | Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon

When you think about it, John Carpenter and Wes Craven are to blame. Without them we wouldn’t have the stone-cold genre classics Halloween and A Nightmare on Elm Street. And without them we wouldn’t have their dubious legacy of derivative sequels, remakes and reboots that has plagued multiplexes for going on fifteen years now.

Outside of such an environment, a remake of (or sequel to?) The Town That Dreaded Sundown would never have been greenlit. The blind greed of studio executives is the only logical explanation for this movie’s existence. The creative merit of the enterprise certainly evades me.

Perhaps you need some context; I certainly did. The original was a 1976 slasher »

'black-ish' Season Finale Will Be Set During the Harlem Renaissance. Sean "Diddy" Combs & Mary J. Blige to Guest Star

12 March 2015 5:22 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Sean "Diddy" Combs and Mary J. Blige will reunite, this time on the small screen, as guest stars on the season finale of ABC's hit comedy "black-ish," in an episode set in the 1920s Harlem Renaissance. The episode, "Pops' Pops' Pops," finds Jack and Diane (Miles Brown, Marsai Martin) looking for clues about their roots for their class assignment, a history of the Johnson family. But they can't find anything out about the family's past. Pops (Laurence Fishburne) comes to the rescue with a colorful story of how "Pops' Pops' Pops," great-great grandfather, Drexler Johnson, bet the future of the Johnson family against a ruthless gangster, Elroy Savoy.  Combs will appear as Savoy, the gangster in question, owner of the swinging Savoy club where the Johnson ancestors all met (including Anthony Anderson as Drexler and Tracee Ellis Ross as showgirl Bea).  Blige will play Mirabelle Calais, the club headliner.  Renowned choreographer. »

Classroom Chaos: Top Ten High School Outsiders

23 February 2015 6:11 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

One of the hardest bouts of growing pains experienced by adolescents is that rite of passage known as the high school experience. In high school one is subject to discovering their own sense of self-identity and purpose. In fact, sometimes the social factor is crucial because the cost of belonging in social-related circles is vital in a four-year commitment to belonging among your peers.

The tension is high to belong and get along as your search for excellence in good grades, social interaction and the overall learning experience is important. However, not every youngster can cope with what they are faced as the obstacles to excel are demanding in high school. Hence, the potential to become “an outsider” is inevitable and the unlikeliest label that no one can overcome no matter how much they try.

The movies have been instrumental in capturing such heavy-handed angst and frustration of the tortured »

Best of Late Night TV: Will Smith's 'Gettin' Jiggy With It' Rap and Ashton Kutcher's Prosthetic Penis

18 February 2015 11:04 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Will Smith is a multi-talented guy, but let's be honest. We love him best for "Gettin' Jiggy With It" (not to mention the "Fresh Prince" theme song), and he entered the "Late Show" stage rapping his biggest hit. '90s dream come true!

Neil Patrick Harris is hosting the Oscars, and he visited "Jimmy Kimmel Live" to chat about his process for coming up with jokes. Basically, all his good topical zingers have been stolen by Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and every late night show ever, and now he's hoping for a last minute scandal he can work into the show.

You guys! Jimmy Kimmel teamed up with his »

The 46th annual NAACP Image Awards on Feb. 6 were a stirring celebration of some of the year’s most entertaining and influential African-American artists. With the likes of Will Smith, Gabrielle Union, Octavia Spencer, and the cast of “Orange Is the New Black” in attendance, the multicultural awards show received a rousing start from host Anthony Anderson, who opened by dancing to his own rendition of “Uptown Funk” through the aisles of the Pasadena Civic Auditorium.
