How Practical Magic Inspired 1 Woman to Murder Her Husband Irl

14 hours ago

Image Source: Everett Collection In 1998, Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman starred in the romantic comedy Practical Magic as Sally and Gillian Owens, two sisters who learned to cast spells at an early age while being raised by their crazy aunts, played by Dianne Wiest and Stockard Channing. Sally and Gillian are the bearers of a curse that has been in their family for several generations - the men they fall in love with are doomed to an untimely death, and they must come together and use their powers to fight the curse and find true love. While tons of people watched movies like Practical Magic - as well as The Craft and Hocus Pocus - the majority of us were only inspired to dress up as witches for Halloween or play "Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board" at slumber parties. But in 2000, one woman took away much more »

8 Differences Fans of The Handmaid's Tale Should Expect to See in the Show

15 hours ago

Hulu's adaptation of The Handmaid's Tale is tense, darkly terrifying, and a brilliant ode to Margaret Atwood's 1985 feminist novel of the same name. The drama tells the story of life in the dystopian Republic of Gilead, specifically the one of a handmaid named Offred (Elisabeth Moss). She desperately tries to survive life as a handmaid - a caste of fertile women forced into sexual servitude to help repopulate the world - and find the daughter who was literally ripped from her arms, all while navigating the dangerous, restrictive, and uncomfortably familiar world of Gilead. While the show sticks incredibly close to Atwood's incredible original story, there are a few key differences fans of the book should keep an eye out for. Warning: Mild spoilers throughout.

The Lion King Reboot Is Wooing Us With Its Impressive as Hell Cast

15 hours ago

You may be of the opinion that no one will ever be able to top the one-two punch of Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Matthew Broderick as Young and Adult Simba, but you might be wrong. Sure, the original 1994 animated film starred Whoopi Goldberg, Nathan Lane, and Jeremy Irons, but Disney's upcoming reboot is shaping up to be quite impressive. Four big roles have already been filled, and Beyoncé is the top choice to play Nala. (I'd like to believe Beyoncé is the top choice for most every role in Hollywood, and it's just up to whether she wants it or not.) For now, check out the actors who have signed on so far, and check out all the details. »

The Handmaid's Tale: Blink and You Might Miss the Author's Cameo

15 hours ago

The Handmaid's Tale is easily one of the most anticipated book to TV adaptations coming out this year, and its author, Margaret Atwood, had a major hand in the series (in more ways than one). Not only was she instrumental in the writing process, but it turns out, she also makes a quick cameo in the first episode. During recent a Tribeca Film Festival panel for the Hulu series, showrunner Bruce Miller revealed that she plays an aunt (a high-ranking woman who presides over other women) who slaps Offred (Elisabeth Moss) in the head during the indoctrination scene. Even though she was timid about hitting Moss at first, she eventually got really into it. "She knocked her little bonnet off and it was all really, it was embarrassing," Miller added. »

Now This Is Something to Sing About - Frozen 2 Has a Release Date!

18 hours ago

It's been a while since Disney confirmed there would be a sequel to their ridiculously popular musical Frozen back in 2015 (which earned an icy reaction from Kristen Bell), but the good news is that an official release date has finally arrived! The bad news is that it's forever and a day away. The Hollywood Reporter has reported that Frozen 2 will hit theaters Nov. 27, 2019, which is a long time to survive without a new replacement for "Let It Go." Fortunately if the wait already feels like an eternity, you can look into buying tickets for the Broadway adaptation of Frozen, which is set to premiere sometime in 2018. »

8 Shows You Should Watch If You're Obsessed With Riverdale

19 hours ago

Riverdale has quickly become the new It show on The CW. With all the mystery, drama, and hot eye candy, what's not to love? Perhaps the reason we can't get enough of the series is because it reminds us of some of our other favorite TV shows. That love triangle between Betty, Veronica, and Archie? Totally Gossip Girl. The continuous question about who really killed Jason? So much like Twin Peaks. Not to mention the subtle retro vibe reminds us of Stranger Things. See which other popular series Riverdale has similarities to. Related5 Crazy Things That Could Happen on Riverdale (Based on the Archie Comics) »

How the Ending of Bates Motel Changed Norman's Story

21 hours ago

Bates Motel shut its doors for the final time (until a lovely new family opens them for business and hopefully doesn't murder anyone) on Monday. The fifth season was a satisfying cap on a show that had me wondering from the very first premiere: how can this end? After all, Alfred Hitchcock had already finished the story in his 1960 film, Psycho. How would a prequel add anything new or exciting to the end of Norman Bates's tale? We actually knew going into "The Cord" that A&E's iteration was taking an entirely different route. The series had already moved past the events of the film, which go down in a different way. (Long story short: Norman doesn't kill Marion Crane, aka Rihanna, in the shower. Instead, he murders Sam Loomis, the philandering husband of his townie crush, Madeleine.) Norman confesses to the crime, but Norma starts taking over his body, »

In a Bizarre Twist, The Handmaid's Tale Cast Refuses to Call the Show Feminist

21 hours ago

Given all of the threats to Planned Parenthood, despicable quotes from government officials about women's bodies, and a seemingly never-ending attack on women's rights, Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale could not have come at a better time. The TV adaptation of Margaret Atwood's 1985 novel - which takes place in a dystopian society where fertile women are slaves in a misogynistic, oppressive, extremely religious government - has been highly anticipated, to say the least. It's not hard to draw parallels between the current political climate and the one Offred (played by Elisabeth Moss) experiences in the story, which makes the cast's recent quotes so off-putting. At a Tribeca Film Festival panel over the weekend, a handful of The Handmaid's Tale's cast and creative team argued that the show is not a feminist story. "I think that any story, if it is a story being told by a strong, powerful woman »

2 Tiny Paul Walker Tributes You May Have Missed in The Fate of the Furious

24 April 2017 4:05 PM, PDT

Image Source: Everett Collection It's been nearly four years since Paul Walker's tragic death, but the Fate of the Furious cast is keeping his memory alive. In addition to mentioning his character, Brian O'Conner, and naming Dominic Toretto's (Vin Diesel) baby after him, there are a couple other tiny ways the movie paid tribute to Paul that you might have missed. When Little Nobody (Scott Eastwood) hits the streets with the team for the first time to face off against Dom in NYC, Little Nobody is shown driving a Subaru Brz in Paul's signature blue color. While the model of the car is different, Paul's blue Nissan Skyline Gt-r R34 was featured in four of the Fast and Furious films (The Fast and the Furious, 2 Fast 2 Furious, Fast and Furious, and Fast & Furious 6). Paul even owned the one he drove in the fourth film, though it was later sold after his death. »

The 10 Best Grey's Anatomy Episodes of All Time

24 April 2017 3:40 PM, PDT

While it fits the bill for a soap opera, Grey's Anatomy is no generic, run-of-the-mill fluff series. It's a show that artfully distills medical knowledge and emotional exchanges into highly satisfying 42-minute episodes.

Oh, and did we mention the awesome music selection that ranges from synth-pop bangers to morose covers of '80s rock? After reliving some emotional scenes and wiping our tears, we compiled a list of 10 of the best episodes from this phenomenal series. Keep reading to get some rewatch recommendations or to find an episode for inducting nonbelievers into the Grey's Anatomy fandom. »
