All change from last issue as we have another of those ‘interlude’ issues, where a different creative team fill in on the book for an issue. Having noticed something similar on other Doctor Who books, one could almost think they are trying to get ahead of the schedules for some big Summer event….but I digress. Last issue of course saw the wrap up of the ancient China / Cindy clones adventure, and the defeat of The Red Jade General. Really missing that Red Tardis. As Gabby sits in the Tardis following that adventure, her mind goes back to a previous one.
Where is the glamorous setting for this adventure? Prehistory? The end of time? A galaxy, far, far away? Er, London. Present day. Gabby is thrilled, The Doctor strangely less so. It seems The Doctor is not particularly »

When it comes to musical composers that do scores for movies you don’t get higher on the list than John Williams. The only other guy out there with a pedigree that even compares to Williams would be Hans Zimmer. Essentially it’s these two guys and pretty much everyone else. Don’t get me wrong. There are tons of legendary composers out there but the sheer depth and volume of work that Williams and Zimmer have done is second to none. My personal favorite is Thomas Newman and I have an affinity for guys like James Horner, Aaron Copeland, Randy Newman, Bill

Week 7 of Dancing With the Stars is here, and it will feature a double elimination!
We're only four weeks away from the finale, and who will take home that mirror ball trophy is still up in the air. The bar has been set high, and the seven remaining couples are really going to have to step up their game in the ballroom in order to stay in the competition.
Et breaks down everything you need to know ahead of Monday's show, themed "A Night at the Movies."
Who's on top of the leaderboard?
Who's in danger of elimination?
After last week's shocking elimination (Heather Morris and Maksim Chmerkovskiy were sent home following a perfect score for their tango), it's hard to say what will happen, and proves the importance of voting! But based on scores, we're guessing »
Tom Hanks starred in an adaptation of Dave Eggers’s book “A Hologram for the King” last year, and now he stars again in a film version of an Eggers novel called “The Circle,” an over-the-top and implausible story that tries to be “timely” and “relevant” but mainly hits us over the head with absurd situations. Emma Watson plays the heroine Mae, a sweet-faced girl (with Aaron Copland music as the ringtone on her phone) who is suffering in a bad job at a water company where she has to try to calm down angry people all day. Mae’s father Vinnie. »

By strange and fortuitous coincidence, my meeting with Jack Garfein fell upon the nexus of several intersecting moments in history. It was Friday, January 27th — International Holocaust Remembrance Day. One week earlier, Donald J. Trump was sworn to office as forty-fifth President of the United States; and in the ensuing weekend, allegations of Trump’s unpunished sexual misconduct, callous attitudes toward women and courting of radical right-wing supporters helped bring about the Women’s March on Washington, one of the largest mass protests in the nation’s history. All around, people are anxiously reading the past with tenuous hopes and fears for the future. History, so often a thing defined after the fact, is currently in violent and furious motion.
Jack Garfein is living history, and he’s not shy about telling it. Born to Ukrainian Jews in 1930, Mr. Garfein personally witnessed as a child the rise of Nazi Germany »

There are so many reasons to recommend Something Wild (1961) to today's audiences that it becomes difficult to choose one. It is as timely and disturbing as the day that it was made and equally as insightful about sexual assault. Yet it is also challenging in ways that invite viewers to think long and hard before discussion. Such complexity` is also reflected in the way the film uses the form to tell its story. Beautiful cinematography by Eugene Schüfftan, a breathtaking opening title sequence from Saul Bass, and an evocative score by the legendary Aaron Copeland signal Something Wild as an important, though largely forgotten indie film. But its haunting treatment of a difficult subject makes it a timeless classic. Kudos Criterion. New York college...

After writing up an earlier Mod disc release of the 1961 movie Something Wild, I received a brief but welcome email note from its director:
“Dear Glenn Erickson,

me a copy of your review by email.

Theodore Melfi’s “Hidden Figures,” the untold historical drama about African-American math genius Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson) and her two Nasa colleagues (Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe), is starting to garner crafts recognition, with production designer Wynn Thomas nabbing a period Art Directors Guild nomination this week.
“Fortunately, there was a lot of research to draw upon for what the offices looked like at the Langley Nasa facility,” Thomas told IndieWire. But he was able to bring more imagination to the Space Task Group, which was reconfigured for the movie, which was shot in Atlanta.
Instead of a dull, rectangular-shaped office, the African-American designer made it a place of wonder. “And I wanted Katherine Johnson and the audience to feel they were entering a very special place where something fantastic was going on,” he said. “So we ended up using the Morehouse College buildings for the exterior of Nasa »
