This Is Us Can Even Make You Cry With a Laundry Montage Set to Cat Stevens

15 November 2016 7:58 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

We already knew that This Is Us has a unique ability to make us cry on a weekly basis, but here is the ultimate proof of its tear-inducing skills: episode seven's opening featured a lovely Cat Stevens song set to a montage of the Pearson family's…washing machines? Yes—even a montage of laundry can make us cry if you pair it with an emotional, folky song and some snippets of Mandy Moore and Milo Ventimiglia speaking. Don't believe us? Check out the video above and try not to get "The Wind" stuck in your head for the rest of the night. Silly laundry montage aside, the episode actually dug pretty deep into the deep-seated rift between Randall (Sterling K. Brown) and Kevin (Justin Hartley), »

Mindy Newell: Shopping For My New Comics Shop

26 September 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

So yesterday afternoon I turned on the TV to watch the live Global Citizen concert and caught one of my favorite artists, Yusuf Islam – formerly known as Cat Stevens – performing songs “Wild World” and, joined by Eddie Vedder, “Father and Son,” both from one of his best albums, 1970’s Tea for the Tillerman. I was singing along and getting back into my ‘60s groove when, all of a sudden, right as he started to sing another song, fucking MSNBC went to commercials!!!!

C’mon, are you kidding me? And to make it even more frustrating, the network did one of those “little boxes” so that you could see Mr. Islam singing, but you couldn’t hear him. Aaagh! Global Citizen’s mission is to end extreme poverty around the world, so I found it extremely disturbing and in incredibly bad taste to have a concert meant to raise awareness and »

Venice Film Review: ‘Hounds of Love’

1 September 2016 6:25 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

An outwardly normal suburban Perth couple who abduct, torture, and murder schoolgirls must face their funny games in debuting writer-director Ben Young’s genre-bending powerhouse thriller “Hounds of Love.” Brave audiences will be rewarded, if that’s the word, with a harrowing ride that morphs from discrete horror to probing character study and back again in a vivid yet admirably restrained 108 minutes. Look for strong word-of-mouth — both for and against — to propel this beyond festivals to specialized play.

It’s Christmastime 1987 in the sun-baked western Australian city as Evelyn and John White (Emma Booth, Stephen Curry) brutalize and kill a teenager in a discretely photographed sequence that reveals little blood but a chilling routine. They cruise the neighborhood, offer the victim a ride, then chain her in the guest room of their nondescript tract house. When they’re finished, John buries the body in a nearby wood while Evelyn enjoys a mid-afternoon nap. »

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, »

Denis Leary Has Some Surprising Views on Cat Stevens and The Carpenters

9 August 2016 1:39 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Don’t start playing ’70s pop ballads and progressive rock around Denis Leary — it might just start a fight. Leary, the tough-guy comic who serves as creator and showrunner of FX’s dark comedy “Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll,” can’t abide music he thinks is namby-pamby. “I play Cat Stevens in my trailer and he wants to snap my neck,” co-star Elizabeth Gillies, a pop singer in her own right, told reporters Tuesday at the Television Critics Association TV press tour in Beverly Hills.

With summer camp season in full swing, One Way Static Records has picked the perfect time to announce their vinyl and cassette soundtrack of 1981's The Burning:

Press Release: One Way Static Records is excited to bring you their latest release: Rick Wakeman’S iconic motion picture soundtrack for the 1981 slasher-classic The Burning. Available on both vinyl & cassette.

In the film, a summer camp caretaker who was horribly disfigured from a prank gone wrong is released from the hospital with severe deformities and seeks revenge on those he holds responsible, starting with the kids at a nearby summer camp.

Made at the height of the low-budget slasher-film craze fueled by the success of Halloween and Friday the 13th in the early 1980s, the »

American Idol Recap: Yep, They Just Made America Grate Again

17 March 2016 7:21 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Dear America,

We need to talk.

No, I’m not moving to Canada if Screamy McOrangeFace wins the presidency — I can’t live in a world where I have to wait three or four days to watch my programs, and let’s not forget the importance of doing our civic duty in the midterm elections in 2018.

But my fellow residents of the U.S., you didn’t just drop the ball with this week’s American Idol, you took an anvil, slammed it through the roof and all the way down into the basement.

Kevin Smith's Cameo Revealed in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

27 January 2016 1:44 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Way back in June 2014, just a few months after production started on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we got one of the first reports directly from the set from a somewhat surprising source: filmmaker Kevin Smith. The filmmaker recounted his set visit during one of his many podcasts, and while he didn't divulge too many specific details, he did reveal that the Millennium Falcon would return. Now that Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a massive hit, LucasFilm is starting the pull the curtain back from this secretive production even more, with StarWars.com revealing a list of the "additional voices" used in the film, one of which was Kevin Smith.

The scene where Kevin Smith's voice is used is during the First Order attack on Maz Kanata's (Lupita Nyong'o) castle. The filmmaker/actor voices a Stormtrooper, who, when reacting to incoming Resistance fighters, says "We have incoming at 28.6! Move! »

The official list of voice cameos from the latest Star Wars film has been released - so just who did Kevin Smith play, for one?

As Star Wars: The Force Awakens closes in on the $2 billion global box-office mark just over a month after its release, some interesting tidbits have been released regarding the identities behind the array of uncredited voice cameos in the film.

StarWars.com has released an official list of the names behind the various voice cameos spread throughout the film. While the reveals were not Earth-shattering, they actually did manage to clear up a misconception regarding one intriguing enigma in the Resistance pilot, Ello Asty. There had been suggestions that a voice cameo from Kevin Smith was hidden in The Force Awakens, and speculation pointed to him being behind the character’s (all-too-brief) lines. However, it seems that it was really repertory Star Wars voice talent, »
