Anniversaries: Dinah Washington Born 90 Years Ago

29 August 2014 9:37 AM, PDT | | See recent CultureCatch news »

Dinah Washington (8/29/24-12/14/63) was one of the last great examples of female blues singers regularly working in a jazz band context. Many aficionados would say that she was surpassed in this style only by Bessie Smith. First Issue: The Dinah Washington Story, the two-cd set that proudly features the commemorative stamp issued by the U.S. Postal Service in 1993 to mark the 30th anniversary of her premature death at age 39 (from an overdose of alcohol and diet pills), offers the finest overview of Washington's artistry, ranging from her first records under her own name in 1943 to her classic material for the Verve, Mercury, EmArcy, and Wing labels from 1946 through 1961 (with at least one item from every year in that span), missing only her last two years, when she was on Roulette.

As vocalist expert Chris Albertson's liner notes observe, "Dinah was a gospel, blues, pop, and jazz singer all rolled into one, »

‘Two Night Stand’ Trailer: Check the Weather Report Before Your Dates

Relationships are hard, and they’re even harder when your well-meaning coupled-up friends are pushing you to get back out there again and try to join the world of the loving and living after a particularly harsh breakup. Such is the case with Megan (Analeigh Tipton) whose failed engagement a year prior has her imposing a self-isolation policy that consists of slouching around her apartment in her undies, much to the chagrin of her two roommates (Jessica Szohr and Kid Cudi), and lamenting about her former party and love-filled life. Since she’s “Benjamin Button-ing,” as she calls it, her roommate Faiza (Szohr) suggests that she returns to the swing of things with a good ol’ fashioned one-night stand. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy or special, just join a dating site, bang a rando’ and get out of her funk so she can move on with her life. Thusly »

Film Review: ‘Into the Storm’

7 August 2014 7:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Back in ye olde summer of 1996, few could have imagined that we would eventually look back fondly on Jan de Bont’s “Twister” as the kind of movie “they” don’t make like they used to. And yet, a scant two decades later, here comes “Into the Storm” to prime that nostalgic tear. An all-but-official redo of de Bont’s film for the YouTube/Instagram generation, director Steven Quale’s found-footage Frankenstorm extravaganza generates even more racket than its predecessor (especially in theaters equipped with the new Dolby Atmos sound system) and markedly less human interest — up to and including a shameless heart-tugging coda that wraps itself in Old Glory more snugly than a Tea Party sleepover. Ultimately little more than a feature-length demo reel for nine credited VFX companies, this mid-budget New Line Cinema slate filler may earn some quick late-summer coin from undiscriminating teen auds; all others are »
