Great Job, Internet!: Supercut proves that ’80s films loved them some dance sequences

4 August 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

Tomorrow, August 5, is a special day that may be missing from calendars in a gross oversight: It’s the 30th anniversary of Lionel Richie’s hit song “Dancing On The Ceiling.” Such a momentous occasion as that shouldn’t go unnoticed and must be celebrated in some fashion. Luckily YouTuber Robert Jones has rushed to the rescue with a brand-new supercut that honors Mr. Richie’s ode to ceiling-based gyrations. While the original music video was a raucous good time with people awkwardly dancing, as was the fashion of the time, Jones has outdone that video with this tribute to all sorts of people busting moves in a multitude of ’80s movies.

There are clips from all manner of movie types throughout the decade—from The Breakfast Club to Howard The Duck, Caddyshack to Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo. Even werewolves and nerds get in on the action with shots ...

Great Job, Internet!: Another tribute to the funniest and tackiest T-shirts in movie history

20 July 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

Generally cheap, comfortable, and disposable, the humble T-shirt has been a part of American life since World War I, when doughboys brought them back from France. For decades, they were strictly undergarments, rarely worn exposed in public. But, according to Jane and Michael Stern’s The Encyclopedia Of Bad Taste, T-shirts came out of hiding during the 1960s and became a common medium of personal expression, thanks to the ascendance of both pop art and in-your-face social activism. Suddenly, T-shirts with funny slogans, eye-catching designs, and advertising messages were everywhere. And thank goodness for that. Otherwise, the world would have been denied some of the most awesome (and awesomely tacky) T-shirts in movie history. Back in 2013, Brett Roberts and Travis Greenwood curated a five-minute supercut of cinema’s greatest tees. Now, Roberts and Greenwood have teamed with Robert Jones to create a four-minute sequel, this time set to “Disco »

Prepare for ‘Twin Peaks’ With a Damn Fine Mixtape of Songs By New Cast Members

30 June 2016 12:47 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don’t plan it, don’t wait for it, just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men’s store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee. Or, it could be a listen to this Lynchian mixtape inspired by the massive cast list released for the new iteration of Twin Peaks, which has a surprising number of musicians along with actors.

This list includes, but is not limited to, Trent Reznor, Eddie Vedder, Sky Ferreia, and Sharon Van Etten, along with actors who also dabble in music such as Jennifer Jason Leigh, Monica Bellucci, and Richard Chamberlain. The songs are tailor-fitted to the mood of the show, a combination of the eerie, sad, dark, joyous, and full of life. »

‘Murder: The Complete Series’ DVD Review

21 March 2016 7:51 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Joe Dempsie, Karla CromeAnne-Marie Duff, Peter Bowles, Robert Pugh, Michael Smiley | Written by Robert Jones

We tend to get used to the structure of crime based shows, they follow certain rules. With Murder: The Complete Series this is turned on its head by providing the stories in a documentary style, based on interviews after the case has finished. You’ll probably expect there to be a few twists, which of course there are many.

Featuring not only the series itself, but also Murder: Joint Enterprise we meet characters connected to the murders and they set their case. This can be family of the murdered person, witnesses or the accused person themselves, all ready to give their information over to us. We then have to decide exactly what has happened and who is the real culprit.

When we are given the facts in this way, as the audience »

The Bafta award-winning drama Murder is set to return to BBC Two with three new films. Co-created by Robert Jones and Kath Mattock, and written by Robert Jones, the three 1 hour dramas have been made by Touchpaper TV for BBC Two.

Continuing with the same innovative and unique format, with three new standalone films, Murder uses personal confessions to revisit the missing moments leading up to a death, in search of the truth.

Intercut with CCTV footage, live action and forensic evidence, the protagonists speak direct to camera giving their version of events. But where does the truth lie when the different versions don’t add up?

Jessica Barden (represented by Curtis Brown) stars in in the third instalment Murder: The Big Bang, directed by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard.

Ten years ago, an off-duty policeman was killed in cold blood in a swimming-pool car park. That much is not in dispute. »

This Tribute To Famous Movie Dance Scenes Will Make You Smile, But It Needs More Magic Mike

27 January 2016 6:41 AM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news » seen some fun dance montages on YouTube before, but most of them only focus on movies that include...well...dancing. Most of the time, a look back on dancing in movies limits itself to movie musicals or other films where dancing is an important aspect of the story. This time, pretty much any moment in the history of cinema where somebody gyrates slightly differently is fair game. It opens with Ex Machina for crying out loud. One content warning: the music is very '90s. It.s so good it makes you wish you didn.t suffer from a debilitating lack of rhythm. Or maybe that.s just me. This video, entitled, "Gonna Make You Sweat," after the song which is used, is by YouTuber Robert Jones, who has created other dance tribute videos in the past. If anything, the use of any movie that includes dancing seems »
