Find Out Why Charlie Sheen Is Reprising His 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' Character

57 minutes ago | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

When most people hear the name Charlie Sheen, they invariably think of Two and a Half Men and that strange stretch in 2011 when he was all about #tigerblood and #winning. However, the older amongst us remember a younger, purer Charlie Sheen – the devil-may-care bad boy of the Brat Pack who stole Jennifer Grey’s heart in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Now, three decades later, Sheen is reprising that role for a whole new generation. The actor is set to appear on an upcoming episode of ABC’s comedy series The Goldbergs, where he’ll run into series regular Hayley Orrantia in a police station as the show pays homage to the beloved John Hughes film. Charlie looks a little rougher around the edges than he did back in the 1980s, but it’s still...

Charlie Sheen to Reprise Ferris Bueller's Day Off Role in The Goldbergs

6 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

If you don't watch The Goldbergs, you're missing out on an incredibly fun comedy series that is set in the '80s. I really enjoy watching this show, and maybe it's because I grew up in the era in which it takes place. It definitely gives me that wonderful nostalgic feel. 

They have an episode coming up in which Charlie Sheen will reprise his small but memorable role from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off as “Boy in the Police Station.” The episode will pay homage to the John Hughes classic, and thanks to People, we have our first look at Sheen in The Goldbergs' Ferris Bueller episode. Here are the details of the story:

The episode will follow Barry (Troy Gentile) as he fakes being sick in an attempt to create his own epic, Bueller-esque day off.Predictably, Barry's day ends in disaster. When Pops (George Segal) and Adam »

No offense to Jingle Ball but there is no better measuring stick for success than a Saturday Night Live musical guest spot. A night after performing to tens of thousands at Z100's annual pop radio celebration at Madison Square Garden, Charli Xcx had an appointment in front of millions thanks to SNL, who named the 22-year-old British hitmaker as their musical guest days before she releases her breakthrough album Sucker.

The 20 Best Songs of 2014

12 December 2014 9:15 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

This week, Vulture will be publishing our critics' year-end lists. 1. Tinashe, “2 On”A slab of twinkling midnight sky cut (by the expert hand of DJ Mustard) into the shape of a perfect pop song.2. Taylor Swift, “Blank Space”A subliminal Starbucks ad dressed like a single? A cheekily misandrist meta-commentary on Being Taylor Swift? Maybe all of these things, or, more simply, the very best song on the world-conquering 1989. 3. Charli Xcx, “Boom Clap”A John Hughes prom-scene anthem from a self-styled '90s baby: What could be more millennial than that? 4. Sia, “Chandelier”Divisive, throat-bruising, vocally acrobatic ode to bad decisions from pop’s most (begrudgingly) famous paper bag. 5. iLoveMakonnen, “Club Goin Up on a Tuesday”A based, weirdo-pop curio that catapulted an Atlanta nobody to overnight stardom, rearranged the entire logic of the calendar, and, perhaps most impressively, compelled Drake to practice his falsetto. Weekends are so 2013. 6. Nicki »

Review: Grow Up, Tony Phillips

4 November 2014 6:54 AM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Back in 2009, I caught a screening of Emily Hagins’ zombie film Pathogen at a women in film festival, followed by Zombie Girl: The Movie, a documentary centered around her making this film.  At the time of Pathogen‘s production, Hagins was merely twelve years old.  It was an impressive film, regardless of her age, and she truly showed the world that she was a force to be reckoned with.  Not wanting to be a one-hit wonder, Hagins’ created two more films, with the teen vampire comedy My Sucky Teen Romance being the next to grab audiences’ attentions.  At only 19 years old, Hagins’ film at moments showed her age, but was still a solid and entertaining effort.  Now, Hagins is no longer a child.  She may be a young adult, but she is an adult.  She can drive, vote, and legally drink if she chooses.  The niche allure of her wunderkind »

John Cusack Stars in David Cronenberg’s Hollywood Satire Maps to the Stars

John Cusack broke out young in phenomenally successful John Hughes projects and has managed to sustain a successful career since, more than 30 years. He’s learned a lot of lessons about Hollywood.   And that’s why he lives in Chicago.  We spoke with Cusack during the Toronto International Film Festival about early fame and movie stars in light of his latest role in David Cronenberg’s black comedy Maps to the Stars.  Working with young actor Evan Bird who plays a spoiled young actor in the Justin Bieber mould took him back to his own bittersweet experiences.                                                                                                                                                                                               Evan Bird and […] »

Review: Ouija Favors Cheap Scares Over Genuine Fear

24 October 2014 11:04 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Is it scary? No. Is it occasionally startling? Occasionally, but it’s so focused on getting that startle that it gives up on anything approaching suspense.

It all starts off well enough when young ingénue Debbie (Henning) suddenly and surprisingly hangs herself in her living room. As catalyst, it’s a good one. The idea of something from the outside taking over your motor control and forcing you to self-harm is both viscerally and existentially horrifying (particularly if the victim is aware of what is happening to them). It also allows for the introduction of Debbie’s friends without much of the meet-cute and knowing cleverness which has been thrust on the teen foci of horror films since Scream. Debbie’s friends are devastated by her death and in their attempts to grieve they talk to each other like real human beings at not characters from a John Hughes film. »
