The story of the determined educator struggling against the odds to improve the lives of disadvantaged children is thoroughly well-worn, but that doesn’t make it any less powerful. Here, Kiki King travels to up-country Uganda to sit in on the first lessons in sign language ever taught to local deaf people. Until now, they have never been able to conduct a conversation. While the feelgood aspect is oversold, it’s nonetheless an affecting story. Andrew Mueller

Courtney Love, Dave Grohl Bonded Over Actress' Breasts

19 November 2014 11:20 AM, PST | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Courtney Love and Dave Grohl have finally buried the hatchet, thanks to their mutual appreciation for an unnamed actress' breasts. "The other night, we just started talking about this one actress' boobs," the Hole singer shared on Tuesday's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! "We'd both seen them. At one point, when she was 20, they were the sexiest boobs in Hollywood. He'd seen them; I'd seen them. And we just picked up where we left off after 20 years of suing each other. Isn't that cool?"

Which is how we came upon this week's PopWatch Confessional question: What's the song that's had a surprising, embarrassing emotional effect on you?

Kenny Rogers: Why I Never Slept with Dolly Parton

22 September 2014 3:55 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

There have been rumors of a Kenny Rogers/Dolly Parton affair for decades, but Rogers says their relationship never went beyond flirtation. Albeit "massive" flirtation. The reason? Neither one of them wanted to ruin a perfectly good friendship. "We flirted with each other for 30 years, and it was much more electric," explains Rogers in an interview with Dan Rather, airing Tuesday on Axs TV. "I think once you consummate a relationship like that, it loses something. And she and I both believe that theory, so we did some massive flirting in front of the nation, but there was never anything more than that. »

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ to Break Records for ‘Disney Infinity’ (Exclusive)

11 September 2014 8:03 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Guardians of the Galaxy” isn’t just performing well for Disney at the box office. The company is seeing strong interest in the film and its cast of misfits on the small screen, as well — especially for its videogame “Disney Infinity.”

Since becoming available in July, brisk sales for Rocket racoon and the “Guardians” playset have put them in a position to beat out Captain America and Spider-Man to become the game’s top overall pre-selling figures and playsets. The character Groot is No. 3 so far, behind Venom.

In fact, Rocket is currently selling nearly twice as much as the game’s bestselling characters last year, which were “Monsters Inc.’s” Mike Wazowski and “Frozen’s” Elsa. And it keeps climbing with the number of Rockets sold tripling over the previous week. Disney declined to provide actual sales figures.

“The film is really driving all of the awareness” for the “Guardians” characters, »

Doctor Who Extra: Has the BBC revived Confidential in all but name?

27 August 2014 7:59 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Doctor Who Confidential - a popular behind-the-scenes companion series to the sci-fi hit - was axed by BBC Three back in 2011, with channel controller Zai Bennett citing his desire to move away from "extension shows" in order to focus on original programming.

Just three years later and the UK television landscape is a very different place - Bennett resigned from his post in April, following the news that BBC Three is to become an online-only entity.

So when Doctor Who Extra - a behind-the-scenes companion series to the sci-fi hit, now starring Peter Capaldi - was announced last week, one would be forgiven for assuming that the BBC was reviving Confidential in all but name.

The first edition of Extra is now available online - it seems that 'exclusive to iPlayer' is indeed the new BBC Three - so is it just Confidential rebranded... and perhaps more importantly, is it any good? »

According to longtime pal Kenny Rogers, the "Hello" singer wrote Rogers' 1980 hit song "Lady" while "in the toilet" at a recording studio. "I called Lionel, and I said, 'I'd like for you to write a song for me,'" the "Islands in the Stream" singer, now 75, recalled on the Today show on Thursday, Aug. 14. "Lionel doesn't write entire songs. He writes ideas." Sometimes unfinished ideas. Rogers [...] »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Megan Fox continued her "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" press tour by stopping by "Chelsea Lately," where she discussed her crazy home life after having two kids with husband Brian Austin Green. The demands of parenthood are exhausting, Fox said, where "You don't sleep [and] every minute is ... dedicated to someone else." The actress said she's become a homebody because she's always taking care of her sons, though she admits that she prefers not interacting with others. "I don't like people," she told host Chelsea Handler. "That's why you want to hang out with f--king turtles," Handler observed.

The Doha Film Institute has set Dec.1-6 as the dates for the second edition of its Ajyal Youth Film Festival, where hundreds of kids and adolescents aged 8-21 will be the jurors.

Ajyal’s youth jury programme, the Doha Film Experience, is the central plank of the fest, which fosters film education in Qatar and the surrounding Persian Gulf region where moviemaking is a relatively new storytelling form.


More than 400 jurors from 45 countries – divided in three age categories: 8-12, 13-17 and 18-21 – attended last year’s inaugural edition. The event is modelled on Italy’s Giffoni Film Festival for children with whom the Dfi has a partnership.


The first edition proved that film can truly bring people together,” enthused Ajyal fest artistic director Fatma Al Remaihi (pictured) in a statement.
