Homer Simpson completes the Als Ice Bucket Challenge

27 August 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Celebrities, politicians and everyday folk (including myself) have taken part in raising awareness for Als research. Yesterday we saw Henry Cavill and Amy Adams as Superman and Lois Lane complete the Ice Bucket Challenge for Als and now we have Homer Simpson completing the challenge.

Less impressive when a cartoon does it, but at least there’s a few cameos in there including Olaf from Frozen and the Wampa from The Empire Strikes Back

Now the longest-running scripted show in television history, The Simpsons reside in the town of Springfield. Homer (Dan Castellaneta) works as a safety inspector at the local nuclear power plant; Marge (Julie Kavner) tries to keep the peace in her family; Bart (Nancy Cartwright) is the mischievous 10-year-old hellion; eight-year-old Lisa (Yeardley Smith) is the intelligent, saxophone-playing, vegetarian member of the family; and baby Maggie conveys emotions via pacifier sucks.

Inside the Writers’ Room: Post #10: How to Change the World (And, Most Importantly, Why) – Part I

27 August 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | Hope for Film | See recent Hope for Film news »

In the second episode of Season One of Mad Men, one of the copywriters is showing the agency to a new secretary, trying to impress her: “You know . . . there are women copywriters!” he claims. – “Good ones?” – “Sure,” he says. “I mean, you can always tell when a woman is writing copy. But sometimes she may be the right man for the job, you know?” Not much has changed since the days depicted in Mad Men. Or at least, not enough. This is still a man’s world – and sometimes a woman will get a writing job not because she is “the right man for the job” but because she is a woman.

In the writers’ rooms I have worked in it was usually myself and a bunch of guys. So I was in charge of the female perspective – and I did not want to be that. I knew that what »

Macaulay Culkin and the Home Alone cast then & now

26 August 2014 7:54 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Kevin McCallister is all grown up now. Macaulay Culkin celebrates his 34th birthday today (August 26), so what better time to take a trip down memory lane to find out what happened to the cast of Culkin's greatest work: Home Alone.

Digital Spy goes 'then & now' with the cast of the comedy classic below...

Macaulay Culkin

The biggest child star of the '90s, Culkin spent almost a decade away from screen acting following 1994's Ri¢hie Ri¢h. After a stint on London's West End in Madame Melville, he returned to TV and film in 2003 with roles in Will & Grace and Party Monster. His acting parts since have been sparse - a 2010 Robot Chicken Christmas special is his last (voice only) credit - but Culkin seems to have found his calling as the frontman of a Velvet Underground pizza-themed cover band.

My So-Called Life: where are they now?

From Oscar-winning to Homeland and more, here's what the cast of My So-Called Life have been up to over the past 2 decades...

Twenty years has passed since we were first introduced to the characters of My So-Called Life, twenty years! Where has the time gone? And more importantly when did I get so old?

While most of you won’t really care too much what I’ve been up to since the show finished, let’s take a look at what the actors have been up to in the years since the cancellation of what is frankly the greatest teen TV drama ever.

Claire Danes (Angela Chase)

After breaking out in My So-Called Life, Danes focused on her film career first with a leading role in 1995’s Little Women and then supporting roles in smaller but interesting films like Home For The Holidays, How to Make An American Quilt and »

Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon: Day 2 - HitFix Picks

21 August 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

[As you probably already know, starting on Thursday, August 21, Fxx is running the Every Simpsons Ever Marathon, running through all 552 episodes of "The Simpsons," plus "The Simpsons Movie." To aid in your viewing process, Team HitFix is selecting our favorite episodes from each day, plus an episode or two that you can skip and use as a bathroom or nap break.] Picking episodes for Day 1 of Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon was relatively easy. Yes, "The Simpsons" was quite fine right off the bat and it only improved as the show moved into its second season, but the fans here at HitFix were able to cobble together a clear list of favorites without any hugely disappointing exclusions. Day 2 was far more difficult. We have five participants picking episodes here and we each snagged two favorites for the day, which stretches from "Bart's Dog Gets an F" through to "Last Exit to Springfield," or from Episode 29 through Episode 76.  I think we represented many of the best episodes from this fertile early period, but if I had been about to select four or five, I could have easily done it.  My greatest regret is that we didn't have room for "Selma's Choice," which has possibly my favorite opening of the entire series -- »

10 Geek Secrets The Big Bang Theory Made Famous

8 August 2014 1:55 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


Those of you who, like Caine in Kung Fu, wander the internet every day in search of tidbits of information about television, comics and film to then re-post to the internet and argue about… well, like us, you probably need to stop spending your days doing that, and, like us, you’ll have heard that the three principle cast members of The Big Bang Theory have recently renegotiated their salaries to a cool million dollars an episode for the upcoming three seasons of the show.

That’s right, apparently CBS didn’t check to see whether their biggest hit actually had its stars attached for an eighth season before it renewed it for the eighth, ninth and tenth seasons, thus playing their hand rather early when it came to discussing Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco and Jim Parsons’ new contracts. Those three will be getting a staggering $72 million each out »

28 Things We Learned from ‘The Legend of Billie Jean’ Commentary

7 August 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

There’s been a lot of talk recently regarding the lack of female superhero films in general and the lack of great ones in particular, but I’d argue the singular fun one has been sitting right in front of us since the mid-eighties. And it stars Helen Slater in the title role. And it’s not Supergirl. The Legend of Billie Jean is about a young woman who stands up for truth and justice, changes into a sexy costume (of sorts), has sidekicks and a nemesis and even has her own catchphrase in “Fair is fair!” It’s cheesier than a constipated cow, but the story and character beats deliver fun and excitement all set to a catchy ’80s soundtrack. The supporting cast is a roster of familiar faces in Christian Slater, Yeardley Smith, Peter Coyote, Keith Gordon and Dean Stockwell, but the film belongs to Helen Slater. The film just hit Blu-ray a few weeks »

Maximum Overdrive (1986) Review

5 August 2014 12:36 AM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Reviewed by Kevin Scott,

Maximum Overdrive (1986)

Written by: Stephen King

Directed by: Stephen King

Cast: Emilio Estevez (Bill), Pat Hingle (Bubba), Laura Harrington (Brett), Yeardley Smith (Connie), John Short (Curtis), J.C. Quinn (Duncan Keller), Holter Graham (Deke Keller), Frankie Faison (Handy)

Alright, I know that I probably can’t tell you anything new about this one, but sometimes I feel like I need to defend it as a wonderful and random anomaly that will probably never happen again. Stephen King as a director? AC/DC doing the complete score? Man, that sounds like horror/rock and roll heaven! In a way, it was. Once again, I do have some nostalgia for this film. It was the humble beginnings of one of my favorite cities, Wilmington, Nc becoming a prolific film town. This film was made by Deg films along with a couple of other King adaptations like “Cat »

(Cbr) Fans of "The Simpsons" and "Family Guy" got a nice treat on Saturday at Comic-Con International in San Diego when Fox debuted five minutes of the upcoming cartoon crossover. Airing Sept. 28, “The Simpson Guy” was teased in May with a few photos and an official description. As you can see, the episode will also include cameos from "Bob’s Burgers" and "The Cleveland Show."
