I don’t find myself crying in agony over having to miss conventions much, but judging from the lineup to this year’s Texas Frightmare,…yeah, I’m bummed.

Hello Sarah. Is Escape From Planet Earth your first animated movie?
I think it's the first full-length theatrical release. I don't recall any more, to be honest. I've probably done short-form voice stuff before. (1)
And this is your third space-themed movie.
It is? Remind me.
Well, there was Flight of the Navigator, and then Mars Attacks!
Ah, yes, you're right. I seem to be drawn to the genre, even though I don't even remember that I am.
In some ways, would you see this as the completion of a trilogy?
Oh my God, I love that you're looking at it with such a scholarly approach. Yes! Let's pretend that that's exactly why I did it. »

Netflix Instant is a wonderland of new treasures and old favorites. Here are five titles you’ll want to scoop up during, say, a particularly chilly Tuesday night.
For me, the creepiest thing about Sunset Boulevard isn’t Norma Desmond’s clownish, Dee Snider-like expressions or William Holden‘s descent into some seriously gray gardens. It’s that the characters in the film make such casual references to other movie stars of the time — Barbara Stanwyck, Tyrone Power, Alan Ladd, and Betty Hutton all come up — that you feel like you’re listening to modern-day showbiz types in a 1950 movie. These people sound like tamer Nikki Finkes. It’s weird! I’m not used to people in old movies sounding real and current. What if Grace Kelly just turned to the camera in Rear Window and deadpanned, “I don’t find Hannah sympathetic on Girls“? It’s like that! »

With 111.5-million U.S. viewers, and a further 7.3-million in Canada, Super Bowl Xlviii was the most-watched in history. The commercial spots were the most expensive for any TV broadcast in any given year, and there were plenty of big name stars and A-list directors who helped create these very expensive advertisements. John Hillcoat, director of The Road, helmed the spot for Coke. The minute long ad featuring a multilingual rendition of “America the Beautiful” was refreshing to many, but left a bitter taste in the mouth of conservative pundits. Bruce Willis and Fred Armisen get close for Hyundai, and prolific music video and film director, Mark Romanek (Never Let Me Go), re-teamed with U2 for the Bank of America “Invisible spot”(Romanek directed U2 in an Apple commercial in 2004). The small screen rarely attracts this many big screen filmmakers in one night, so we decided to vote on our »
The cliché of watching the Super Bowl just for the ads felt especially true last night, when the game itself was as close as if an actual seahawk and a bronco were competing in a flying contest. As usual, a recurring theme was nostalgia, trotting out a celebrity or a character from a past era in the hopes that millions of people watching will think, Ha-ha, I recognize that person! Here's my money. Here's who popped up — from Arnold Schwarzenegger to the Full House bros to the California Raisins — and how their reappearance made the viewer feel. Commercial: RadioShack Callback: Hulk Hogan, CHiPs' Ponch, Kid N' Play, Twisted Sister's Dee Snider, Mary Lou Retton, Alf, Cliff from Cheers, the California Raisins, and the rest of the eighties Concept: Eighties mainstays destroy a dated RadioShack, allowing for the new RadioShack to rise from the ashes, like a phoenix wearing »

Super Bowl Xlviii might have lacked the thrills compared to past games, but the commercials were not lacking when it came to excitement, familiars faces and emotions... it's Ok to admit you got a little misty eyed!
Here are some of our favorite Super Bowl ads:
Radio Shack, "The Phone Call": It was a serious Throwback Thursday - '80s style - with appearances from Hulk Hogan, Mary Lou Retton, Dee Snider, Kid 'n Play, John Ratzenberger, Chucky, Alf, and the California Raisins in a spot announcing the store's makeover.
Cheerios, "Gracie": Could this spot for the cereal ...

Sometimes you have to look backwards in order to move forward, and Radio Shack took this very literally when they revived a slew of classic ’80s characters for their wacky Super Bowl commercial.
What do Alf, Dee Snyder, Mary Lou Retton, Hulk Hogan, Cliff from “Cheers,” and Chuckie have in common? (Well, besides being ’80s icons, that is.) They all shop at Radio Shack! Check out the electronics store’s mega-nostalgic Super Bowl commercial below the jump.
Radio Shack’s Nostalgic Super Bowl Commercial
Radio Shack decided to go with the Buzzfeed route of enlisting the help of good old fashioned nostalgia for their Super Bowl spot, and it definitely paid off. Sure, having Retton, Alf, and the rest of the gang raid a Radio Shack for outdated equipment wasn’t the most creative concept we saw last night, but it definitely served its purpose. We laughed!

No matter which way you slice it, Budweiser was top dog at Sunday’s Super Bowl.
Both TiVo and the USA Today Ad Meter named the brand’s heart-tugging “Puppy Love” spot to be the night’s most popular commercial, give or take a Seinfeld reunion. (Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee halftime spot was actually first on TiVo’s list, though the company acknowledges that it wasn’t a true paid advertisement.) The ad, a callback to last year’s similarly “aww”-inducing “Brotherhood,” dramatizes the friendship between an adorable puppy and a magnificent Clydesdale — and shows »

This was not the best Super Bowl for commercials (or football)! You know it’s an off year when two of the most memorable spots involve Greek yogurt. That’s just a rather bleak landscape in general, “live culture” notwithstanding. Meanwhile, my favorite healthy snacks Doritos and M&Ms, which usually bring it hard for the Super Bowl, barely registered. Below, 2014′s Best and Worst ads:

Sneak Peek the new Super Bowl Xlviii "RadioShack" commercial titled "The Phone Call" featuring 1980's TV/movie/pop icons including 'Alf', 'Slimer', 'Chucky', 'Hulk Hogan', 'Teen Wolf', 'Cliff Clavin', 'Officer Frank Poncherello', 'Twisted Sister' and a whole lot more :
"This is a bold, strategic move for 'RadioShack' and we’re using the 'Super Bowl' as the platform to get people to rethink RadioShack," said Jennifer Warren, senior vice president and chief marketing officer at RadioShack.

The Super Bowl doubled as throwback Sunday for RadioShack, with the brand unveiling a hilarious new ad that pays tribute to the most beloved celebrities from '80s pop culture. From Hulk Hogan to Chucky, the '80s superstars invade and ransack a typical RadioShack retail outlet (the rampage meant to assure customers that the chain will no longer be stuck in the past). At only 60 seconds, the ad was an overload of nostalgic randomness; here's a breakdown of every '80s reference we spotted, in roughly the order of appearance:Loverboy, "Working for the Weekend" (audio) Olympic champion Mary Lou RettonJason, »
