How 'American Werewolf in London' Transformed Horror-Comedy

19 August 2016 6:30 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

It's bad enough to be a werewolf, hunted by the light of the full moon. But to be a foreign werewolf? That's beyond cruel. An American Werewolf in London squirms with comic unease from the get-go, and almost immediately from its release 35 years ago — August 21st, 1981 — the bipolar horror-comedy has been celebrated on two impressively different fronts: as a landmark in startling makeup effects that legitimized the gross-out, and as a riotous piece of fish-out-of-water college humor. Calling the film a sick joke is perfectly apt. It's a sweaty, shuddery experience, »

Jerry Seinfeld on His Surprise Emmy Nomination for ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’

10 August 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” is perhaps an overlong title for a series, but it’s an accurate reflection of just what happens in Jerry Seinfeld’s talk show. And now after eight seasons on Crackle over the last four years, it has broken through to the Emmy Big Leagues with a nomination for outstanding variety talk series, joining mainstream shows like “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver.”

Much of the talk around the show tends to focus on the comedians — or, in the case of President Obama, public figures — who join Seinfeld in each episode. Seinfeld chums Larry David and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Don Rickles and Tina Fey, have all gone on a coffee run with the host, who describes himself as “a one-man car culture,” the owner of a veritable fleet of rare vehicles classic and contemporary.

But don’t skip out on the “coffee” part. “I »

NYC Weekend Watch: Max Ophüls, ‘Seven Samurai,’ ‘On the Silver Globe’ & More

28 July 2016 6:43 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Museum of Modern Art

Leo McCarey and the great Gaumont series are continuing their ongoing retrospectives, both of which make for a densely packed lineup.

Metrograph

Relive your traumatized childhood with “This Is PG?!” Jaws, Temple of Doom, and Poltergeist are but a few of the first weekend’s titles.

Helen DeWitt will present a print of Seven Samurai on Sunday. »

A version of this article previously appeared on EW.com.Well before James Corden turned "Carpool Karaoke" into a viral hit, Jerry Seinfeld was mining mobile entertainment for laughs.

Drive-In Dust Offs: X: The Man With The X-ray Eyes

4 June 2016 10:50 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Undisputed Fact: Roger Corman is the greatest B picture producer of all time. His ability to find (and exploit, if we’re being honest) amazing talent and pull together movie miracles on miniscule budgets is nothing short of astonishing. However, it’s often downplayed what a smart, succinct director he was on many a project. X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes (1963) is a stellar example of his talent behind the lens.

Released by Aip in September, X turned a tidy profit on top of its $250,000 budget. Critics were generally kind, but dismissive, calling X well made hokum, essentially. And due to its meager fundage X certainly shows its pedigree through petty set design. But…there’s a kinetic buzz that permeates every frame of X, a swirling colorgasm that bleeds through with Corman’s gift for storytelling. X rises from pulp to a lucid perfection.

Best Gambling Scenes In Movies

13 April 2016 1:06 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Gambling has become a part of the movies, and indeed television as well. In a recent episode of the new HBO TV show Vinyl, which is executive produced by filmmaking legend Martin Scorsese, Terence Winter and none other than Mick Jagger, the show’s protagonist Richie Finestra (played by Bobby Canavale) was seen pushing $90,000 onto the roulette table after selling the company’s private jet.

It’s quite a powerful and brave scene, but of course film and television content have had a long relationship, and with free online pokies featuring famous properties, including Game Of Thrones and even the classic Hitchcock film Psycho, their tie is becoming even greater. The worlds of gambling and film and TV are becoming more aligned.

Vinyl may be the latest TV show to feature gambling, but it certainly wasn’t the first. Here, we take a look at our favourite gambling scenes from the movies, »

12 April 2016 12:50 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Donald Trump wouldn't mind having some of his past opponents serving alongside him if he gets to the White House.

I do like Kasich … I like Walker actually in a lot of ways." He added: "There are people I like, »

Kathy Griffin Pays Tribute to Joan Rivers: 'She Knew She Had to Work Harder, Jump Higher' Than Male Comedians

1 April 2016 6:25 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Kathy Griffin is remembering Joan Rivers in a new documentary premiering Friday. In an exclusive sneak peek at Joan Rivers: Exit Laughing, Griffin remembers watching her mentor on TV when she was a younger - and being inspired how the late comedian broke ground for female comics. "No matter what she did, she had that fire in her eye. That's what you would see in the male stars as well, but it was a little unique to see it in a female star. She had the same kind of drive that the boys had," says Griffin. "What that said »

Donald the Diplomat? - 13 Days to Nomination Lock, Trump Tries His Hand at Statesmanship (Again)

2 March 2016 3:05 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The election clock is ticking. By March 15, enough delegates will be awarded that we should know the presumptive presidential nominees - and much to the dismay of many Republican Party elders, the Gop candidate will likely be Donald Trump. The front-runner's controversial rhetoric and policy proposals have divided Republicans, with many taking up the #NeverTrump cause. But in his Super Tuesday victory speech last night, Trump, who won seven of 11 states on the day with the most delegates at stake, vowed to unite the Republican party and lead it to victory in November.

Review: 'The Triumph 2016 Election Special' is The Political Coverage This Presidential Campaign Deserves

17 February 2016 2:07 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

While Indiewire is not a political site, an election year means that politics seep into every aspect of our lives, most especially our popular culture. This year, the field of candidates maybe has us wishing there was some sort of safe place — a refuge from the madness. Such a place may not exist, so here's the next best thing: a crude, brutal takedown of the candidates and culture surrounding this year's campaign starring a rubber dog puppet.  Read More: Watch: You Can't Handle the Truth of Kevin Bacon's Acting in 'Funny or Die' Series For those not familiar with Robert Smigel's most famous creation (okay, maybe second-most-famous, thanks to The Ambiguously Gay Duo), Triumph is an insult comic in the grand tradition of Don Rickles and the like.
