10 Most Wtf Moments of Lifetime's 'A Tale of Two Coreys'

10 Most Wtf Moments of Lifetime's 'A Tale of Two Coreys'
How did it take so long to get a Lifetime movie about the Coreys? A Tale of Two Coreys is a tragic Hollywood rise-and-fall saga: two teen actors who make it big in the Eighties, complete with fire-hazard hair, drugs, groupies and pastel blazers. Corey Haim and Corey Feldman first paired up in the 1986 vampire classic The Lost Boys, and became inseparable BFFs, only to crash hard. In other words, it's a story made to order for a lurid low-budget Lifetime biopic, with a cast full of unknowns. But unlike

Halloween 2017: Trick ‘R Treat is the Perfect Celebration of the Halloween Season

A murderous principal, werewolves, a school bus massacre, a demonic pumpkin creature. In lesser hands, these elements combined might signal an overly ambitious, convoluted mess jammed into a tight 82 minutes. Luckily, Trick ’r Treat is quite the opposite: a bold anthology of Halloween tales stitched together like patchwork on a quilt, written and directed by the very capable Michael Dougherty (Krampus). In fact, Dougherty’s cleverly crafted Frankenstein-esque film should be at the top of every seasonal watch list; it’s a Halloween perennial that refuses to stay dead. Here’s why.

Originally set to hit theaters in October 2007, Warner Bros. inexplicably pulled the film from its schedule, despite a young, recognizable cast and seasonal allure. It was rumored to be bumped to the following October, but ended up settling with a straight-to-dvd release in 2009. For whatever reason, the studio’s lack of confidence and treatment of the film stunted

Corey Feldman and Corey Haim Are Getting a Lifetime Biopic Called A Tale Of Two Coreys

Back in the 80s Corey Feldman and Corey Haim were a couple of fun-loving teenage heartthrobs that gained fame as they starred in a few films together. Some of those films included The Lost Boys, Licence to Drive, and Dream a Little Dream. The two actors became very close friends and remained friends up until Haim's death in 2010.

The two actors have gone through a lot together growing up in the Hollywood system and their story is going to be told in a Lifetime biopic called A Tale of Two Coreys which Feldman himself is supporting.

The film will follow the troubled and dark lives of the two Corey's who both struggled with drug addiction and sexual abuse. Haim was reportedly raped at 11-years-old and all of the horrific abuse that he had gone through led to his death.

Feldman talked about the biopic in an interview with Yahoo, saying:

Why Charmed deserves to be celebrated

Caroline Preece Jan 13, 2017

We take a look back at the original Charmed, and what made it so special...

The premise for Charmed must have sounded simple - a female-centric show about three witches living in San Francisco that would cash in on the success of Buffy The Vampire Slayer on the still-new WB network. They wouldn’t just be witches, but also sisters, relatable across demographics with Prue (Shannen Doherty) - the late-20s sensible one, Piper (Holly Marie Combs) - the neurotic middle sister, and Phoebe (Alyssa Milano) - the wayward college dropout.

The late-90s was an era of Us network television that fostered a whole bunch of series focusing on ‘kick-ass’ female leads - Buffy, Xena, Dark Angel etc. - but what Charmed wanted to do was slightly different. From the start, the

The Famous Comedy Crash Pad that Housed Robin Williams and More Stand-Up Legends Is for Sale
The Comedy Store on Los Angeles’ Sunset Strip has hosted many of stand-up’s biggest stars, from Robin Williams to David Letterman, Richard Pryor and Roseanne Barr. And the house behind the popular venue often served as a crash pad for those talents, a sort of comedy frat house — and sometimes den of iniquity — for regular performers.

In a feature about the storied residence, known as Cresthill, Buzzfeed lays out its rise, famed residents (Andrew Dice Clay, Sam Kinison, Jim Carrey, Robin Williams and more lived or “hung out” there in the 1980s), and residual significance to fans of the comedy giants.

Video Game Review – Shadow Warrior 2

Ray Willmott reviews Shadow Warrior 2…

In a week where Duke Nukem is celebrating his roots with a remastered rendition of his classic 3D exploits, Shadow Warrior is set to reach the peak of its popularity. Which is incredibly ironic considering Lo Wang’s original adventure was an Eastern parody of everything Mr Nukem stood for and a way to keep using the Build Engine to keep up costs.

But since Flying Wild Hog took over the rights and released Shadow Warrior in 2013, they’ve done more than just reintroduce the original game to modern day audiences, they’ve essentially redesigned the experience from the ground up.

And here’s the kicker. With Shadow Warrior 2, not only has Lo Wang finally moved past the bubblegum munchers’ looming shadow, he also gets to drill the final nail in his coffin.

Fwh did the hard work by reintroducing the world to Lo Wang,

Christian Slater Reveals ‘Mr. Robot’ Secrets and What It’s Like to Work With Alf

Christian Slater Reveals ‘Mr. Robot’ Secrets and What It’s Like to Work With Alf
If you missed the recent ’90s tribute episode of “Mr. Robot,” you can still hear all about it — and so much more — in this SAG-aftra Foundation interview with Christian Slater, moderated by Indiewire’s own Michael Schneider.

In the 35-minute taping, Slater covers everything from his Comic-Con 2015 live reading with the cast of the FX comedy hit “Archer,” to one of his newest projects, a based-on-true-events film titled “King Cobra,” in which he stars alongside James Franco as a dark, obsessive, gay porn producer.

[Spoilers for “Mr. Robot” Seasons 1 and 2 below.]

After the screening of the 90s tribute episode, which includes a cameo from Alf (yes, the Alf), Slater told the audience, “It was [an episode] we were very excited to do. But we thought, even while we were filming that particular episode, people are either going to enjoy this or we’re going to go straight to hell — that was sort of the vibe while we were doing it.

Movie Review – Don’t Think Twice (2016)

Don’t Think Twice, 2016.

Written and Directed by Mike Birbiglia.

Starring Keegan-Michael Key, Gillian Jacobs, Mike Birbiglia, Chris Gethard, Tami Sagher, and Kate Micucci.

Synopsis:

Just when the theater they regularly perform at is about to close down, two members of an improv group are given the chance to be on an SNL-like variety show.

If “don’t think twice” is the motto of improv, and the title of writer-director-actor Mike Birbiglia’s new movie, my motto is “Tell yourself you’ll stop thinking at twice. Allow one more think. Then think again anyway.”

Birbiglia drives in on the opposite impulse, with a film that lovingly and specifically portraits the improv community of NYC. Centered on a fictional group called the Commune, most of the cast come from comedy backgrounds and the characters they play frequently merge with real life, adding to the authenticity. Keegan-Michael Key’s Obama impression,

Don’T Think Twice – Review

It’s not easy being thirty. At least that seems like the case for Mike Birbiglia. The comedian, actor, writer, and now director isn’t quite at the level of Eeyore, but he’s definitely one of indie cinema’s recent favorite sad sacks. A consistent theme in his work is a male character (always himself) self-analyzing his life and career and pining after the “shoulda been me” moments that could have propelled his career. Part of this introspection is centered around how the thirties is ultimately the final nail in your budding professional career. At that point you might as well turn off the microphone and settle down into a life of domesticity. Well… at least in the eyes of Birbiglia.

I admit that I wasn’t much of a fan of his previous film – the directorial debut Sleepwalk With Me. It’s consistent down beat tone became a slog to get through.

Review: Don't Think Twice is a Love Letter to Improv Comedy (L.A. Film Fest 2016)

Eddie Murphy. Will Ferrell. Bill Murray. The list of supremely talented improvisers who’ve made it big in Hollywood is extensive, but no one has ever made a movie that takes the audience inside the subculture of modern improv and investigates the often complicated relationships between its comedians. Mike Birbiglia has changed that with his sophomore directorial feature Don’t Think Twice, a love letter to the art form that also functions as an exploration of creativity, loyalty, and maturation.

Birbiglia plays Miles, the founding member of an NYC-based improv troupe called The Commune that performs regularly in a local comedy club. He auditioned for Weekend Live (the film’s stand-in for Saturday Night Live) over a decade ago and didn’t get the job, but like all of the improvisers in The Commune, he’s still harboring dreams of getting hired there. The rest of the group includes a

He was drumming like Buddy Rich when he was a baby. In his teens, he'd formed a Beasties-meets-Backstreet boy band called the Style Boyz (you remember their hit dance, the "Donkey Roll," right?). By the time he was in his twenties, he was a solo pop juggernaut who sold out stadiums. His name is Conner4Real, even if the bad-boy singer played by Andy Samberg in Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, isn't real at all. But with his fawning entourage, featherweight R&B-meets-edm hits and such feats of public idiocy as passing out on a hoverboard,
