Urban Outfitters Causes Furor with 'Blood-Splattered' Faux-Vintage Kent State T-Shirt

15 September 2014 5:05 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Clothing retailer Urban Outfitters has come under fire online for selling a faux-vintage sweatshirt emblazoned with the Kent State seal and splatters that appear to be blood stains. This would appear to be a reference to the shootings at the college on May 4, 1970, in which four unarmed college students were killed by Ohio National Guardsmen during a Vietnam War protest. After Buzzfeed pointed out the item, it quickly sold out, and its listing page appears to have been removed from the company's website, though the item appeared on eBay shortly thereafter, listed at many times its original price.

Review: 'Masters of Sex' - 'Asterion'

24 August 2014 8:01 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Masters of Sex" coming up just as soon as we pass Stalin's gift shop... "It's hard to tell where you stop and I begin." -Ginny Last week, I wondered if starting the story of season 2 so soon after the events of season 1 was a mistake, given how much ground the show had to cover in Masters and Johnson's career and how little of consequence happened in the immediate aftermath of him being fired. I wonder if an episode like "Asterion" — which over the course of an hour pushes the narrative ahead by three years — was planned from the beginning, which made the season's first half a really long prologue to the next phase of the series, or if Michelle Ashford realized at some point that there wasn't enough material in the late '50s and abruptly shut down various subplots in order to set up this big time jump. »

Beast of Burden: Top 10 Human-Animal Combinations in the Movies

8 August 2014 3:37 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It can be such a beautiful happening when the natural forces of humanity and the wild kingdom can get together and establish a sense of harmony in motion pictures. Also, it can be a compelling yet regrettable conflict as well when man and beast decide to collide in the interest of big screen entertainment. Whatever the case may be certainly does not matter because the concept of  beasts of all species (rather it be of the four-legged or two-legged variety) collectively clashing or cooperating sends a special message about triumph, tragedy and just plain tenderness.

In Beast of Burden: Top 10 Human-Animal Combinations in the Movies we will look at some of the best selections where man and animal co-exist whether it be in calmness or chaos. There is no doubt that one can come up with numerous top ten lists detailing their ideal man-animal themes in cinema. The struggle for »

Blu-ray Review: 'Swallows and Amazons'

5 August 2014 4:15 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆It's the ideal time for the rerelease of Bafta-nominated director Claude Whatham's Swallows and Amazons (1974) - the cinematic retelling of Arthur Ransome's classic children's adventure story. Not only is the film celebrating its 40th anniversary, but it's also the perfect celebration of those long summer holidays which seemingly last forever when you're young, and are remembered with nostalgia the older we get. The four Walker children (Stephen Grendon, Suzanna Hamilton, Sophie Neville and Simon West) go with their mother (Virginia McKenna) to spend their summer holidays in the Lake District. The adventures they have there make for a story as memorable as it is thrilling.

Swallows & Amazons Blu-Ray Review

29 July 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Claude Whatham

Starring: Sophie Neville, Suzanna Hamilton and Virginia McKenna.

Running Time: 92 mins

Certificate: U

Adapted from the classic 1930′s novel by Arthur Ransome, Swallows & Amazons celebrates its 40th Anniversary this year, and what better way to commemorate this than by releasing it beautifully restored on Special Edition DVD and Blu-Ray, for older and younger generations to watch.

The film follows four children on holiday with their mother at the Lake District in 1929. For many parents today this would come as a shock, as the mother allows them to sail in the small boat ‘Swallow’, to a small island and camp for a few days. They eventually come to realise the island is someones territory, and meet two girls who both look like they stepped out from Wes Anderson’s film, The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou. The girls sail the ‘Amazon’ boat, and soon both groups set up »

Masters Of Sex Season Premiere Review: “Parallax” (Season 2, Episode 1)

15 July 2014 12:54 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When Masters of Sex kicked off its run last September, it started out as a terrific yet tantalizing mix of period drama and tart sex comedy, like a television version of Bill Condon’s excellent biopic Kinsey. The series used a real-to-life sex study from two doctors – Dr. William Masters and Virginia Johnson – to explore the social mores of a bygone era and the sexual curiosities and desires of its central characters. Now, the show, a worthy recipient of several Emmy nominations for acting, is slowly moving from looking at sex in the way of nervous, giddy comedy to the consequences of our actions when our drive for that desire moves out of control.

In “Parallax,” Masters of Sex’s sophomore season kick-off from Sunday night, the characters are still reeling from the three big events of last season’s finale – the birth of Bill and Libby’s child, Bill »

Three Series Where Directors Excelled This TV Season

16 June 2014 8:34 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Masters of Sex’: Carrying a Cinematic Sensibility to the Small Screen

Michael Apted first found fame in 1964 as the director of “Seven Up,” a groundbreaking television documentary charting the lives of British children that has since spawned a veritable institution, each film revisiting the subjects seven years later (2012’s “56 Up” was the latest

So it’s a befitting progression that Apted, who also helmed the James Bond film “The World Is Not Enough” and the Jodie Foster starrer “Nell,” would find himself back in TV at this juncture in his career, this time directing episodes of Showtime’s “Masters of Sex,” a series about pioneering physician William Masters and his research partner Virginia

While Apted’s return to TV is pragmatic in part — “The sort of movies I grew up doing are not made anymore and it’s difficult to find a project that I want to do” — he »

Vintage Pics of Jackie Kennedy Will Take You Back in Time

29 May 2014 10:50 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Today would have been JFK's 97th birthday, prompting Americans to look back on his time as president and his romance with Jacqueline Kennedy - an icon in her own right. From a prominent family herself, she was declared debutante of the year in 1948, when she was still Jacqueline Bouvier. After reportedly meeting JFK through a friend in Spring 1952, she and Jack started dating seriously, and their engagement came soon after in June 1953. Jackie and JFK, then a senator, were married that September in Newport, Ri, before settling down in Virginia. After moving to Washington DC's Georgetown neighborhood, Jackie gave birth to Caroline in 1957, followed by John F. Kennedy Jr. in 1960, just weeks after JFK won the general election. As the first lady, Jackie was young, fresh, and fashionable. She worked on restoring and redesigning parts of the White House, and in the below interviews, she talks about her vision for the space, »

Hollywood’s Growing Faith in Christian Movies

14 April 2014 6:27 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sony’s Christian drama “Heaven Is for Real,” which opens Wednesday, is the latest offering in a year with an uncommonly large slate of religious-themed wide releases.

Although there’s long been a robust DVD market and numerous indie releases, more major studios have been taking a leap of faith and embarking on extensive marketing missions this year. It’s only fitting that the senior production exec for “Heaven Is for Real,” DeVon Franklin, is an ordained minister and one of the film’s producers, T.D. Jakes, is a bishop. Jakes has teamed up with “Alice in Wonderland” producer Joe Roth for the project.

“My hope is that it’s going to appeal to the same demographic of the book, which was in the mainstream,” said Franklin, the author of spiritual success book “Produced by Faith.”

“But at the same time,” he adds, “(the story) really had a strong faith-based following. »

Vince Gilligan on the 'Breaking Bad' finale, the abandoned 'Wild Bunch' bloodbath ending, and the all-time best finale

All Bad things must come to an end, read the tagline for the final season of Breaking Bad. And when the revered drug drama came barreling to a finish last September, creator Vince Gilligan, his writers, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, and the rest of the cast sent off Walt in a machine-gun blaze of tragic glory — and it was good. And that’s no easy task. For EW’s “The Art of Saying Goodbye” story, which ran in the April 11 issue, we interviewed the masterminds behind 10 iconic series, who discussed the formidable challenges of concocting the perfect farewell episode.

Songwriter Jesse Winchester dies at age 69

12 April 2014 12:57 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Toronto (AP) — Jesse Winchester, a U.S.-born singer who established himself in Montreal after dodging the Vietnam War and went on to write songs covered by the likes of Elvis Costello, Jimmy Buffett and Joan Baez has died of cancer. He was 69. His death was announced on his official Facebook page Friday. "Friends, our sweet Jesse died peacefully in his sleep this morning," the update reads. "Bless his loving heart." Winchester was born in Louisiana and raised around the U.S. South, but he didn't begin his music career in earnest until moving to Quebec in 1967. There, he began performing solo in coffee houses around Montreal and the Canadian East Coast. Winchester was a protege of the Band's Robbie Robertson, who produced and played guitar on Winchester's self-titled debut album and brought Band-mate Levon Helm along to play drums and mandolin.
