There was never going to be a happy ending to Gracepoint, Fox’s remake of British crime drama Broadchurch.
I mean, when your starting point is the murder of a 12-year-old boy and your midway marker involves the suicide-by-drowning of a falsely accused old man (in possession of a creepy secret, but still…), you can’t expect the closing montage will be set to Jimmy Cliff’s optimistic “I Can See Clearly Now.” (Not unless someone has a coal black sense of humor and a blatant disregard for the audience’s emotional state, anyway.)
But oh, man. The way Episode 10 spirals down, »
It was 25 years ago today that Disney’s The Little Mermaid hit theatres, rejuvenating a slumbering animation giant and igniting a new era for the studio that would produce some of its greatest and most beloved hits. The Little Mermaid -- on sale at the Cineplex Store for its anniversary! -- also featured dazzling songs from Alan Menkenand Howard Ashman, helping set a high musical bar for the films that would follow in its wake.
In honour of the film’s anniversary, we are pleased to present a list of the Top 10 Disney songs of all-time.
In the interest of fairness, only one song was chosen per film and the list is restricted to films from Disney Animation Studios.
10. “Heigh-Ho” from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)
Disney’s very first ear-worm, the end-of-the-workday sing-along from the Snow White’s mining companions was one of the earliest examples that Disney »

New album 'Tracks of My Years' is out Sept. 30.
Bryan Adams is getting back to his roots.
For his first studio album since 2008's Eleven, the Grammy winner is releasing Tracks of My Years on September 30. The album does feature one original song ("She Knows Me," co-written by Adams and longtime collaborator Jim Vallance), but it's otherwise completely composed of time-honored classics from the '50s, '60s and '70s. Among the tracks featured on the album's deluxe version is a cover of Jimmy Cliff's 1969 song "Many Rivers to Cross."

"Making the selection of the songs for the album took a long time" said Adams. "We recorded all kinds of songs until the songs sort of presented themselves, or sounded different enough from the originals. We did about three months of recording, spread out over »
Robin Williams’ long filmography has more than its share of high-profile roles—but IMDb lists 102 total acting credits stretching all the way back to 1977. (That first one? A pair of parts in something called Can I Do It ‘Till I Need Glasses?, which the site describes as “a comedy are comprised of short sexually suggestive skits.”) Williams’ triumphs (Good Will Hunting) and failures (Popeye) are well-known, but it’s worth digging through some of his less-heralded work to find the occasional gem.

Williams had been an animated Disney character, a silly cross-dressing nanny, Peter Pan, and an Oscar-winner before »

Death in Paradise is a police drama that's untroubled by forensics, profiling or CCTV. It's Miss Marple with coconuts
Sainte-Marie, the Caribbean island home of Death in Paradise (BBC1), appears to be suddenly overrun with zombies. And here's a Lara Croft-style lady with bad-ass muscles, boobs, attitude etc taking them on. "You ugly sons of bitches wanna fight?" she says to a zombie, kicking him impressively in the face. "You got one." She's got quite a job on, there are a lot of them, and just one of her. Still it should liven things up a bit around here – Living Death in Paradise maybe, I like it …
"Cut!" says a man. Oh, it's just a film set, a zombie movie being shot on the island. Shame. It won't be long before a real death though, you'll see. Here we go, the stand-in, collapsed and gasping on set – plain old dying dead this time. »
