Why Didn't Arrow's Felicity Take a Stand? Too Soon for Election Horror? Five-0 Mulls 4-Way? And More Qs!

17 February 2017 10:31 AM, PST | | See recent news »

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Homeland, Arrow, Nashville and Scandal!

1 | Did Hawaii Five-0‘s Melissa occasionally let slip a look suggesting that she was mulling a more (ahem) Cinemax-appropriate ending to her, Danny, Steve and Lynn’s Valentine’s double date?

2 | Did Emerald City‘s “handiwork” between Lady Ev and Jack forever run The Wizard of Oz‘s “Oil me” scene for you?

There is no doubt actor Johnathan Fernandez loves his job. "It's crazy. I feel like a broken record when I say that thTalksis whole thing has felt like vacation," said Fernandez during a recent telephone interview with TV Fanatic. 

Fernandez is talking about is his role on Fox's hit show Lethal Weapon, a small screen reboot of the famous film franchise, where he plays Scorsese, medical examiner for the Lapd. 

"I think what I like best about playing Scorsese," Fernandez shares, "is that I am mostly in scenes with Damon and Clayne, so it's really cool to see those guys all the time, because when you work on a show the cast isn't all together."  

"There are a lot of things happening on the show that are shot simultaneously so I still do run into Keesha and Kevin, but they're always doing more than one thing at once.

If you think it’s hard to keep track of all the bad guys that show up in “The Lego Batman Movie,” you should see the original list of villains that the filmmakers wanted to give cameos. In addition to the usual Batman bad guys, like the Riddler, Bane, Two-Face, Catwoman and Poison Ivy, several villains from other popular films make appearances. These include Voldemort from “Harry Potter,” the Wicked Witch of the West from “The Wizard of Oz,” Sauron from “The Lord of the Rings.”

Animation whiz Eddie White makes live-action debut with Odessa Young

9 February 2017 7:17 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Director Eddie White is best known for writing and co-directing 2009.s The Cat Piano, an eight-and-a-half-minute marvel narrated by Nick Cave and shortlisted for best animated short at the Oscars alongside films by Pixar and Aardman.

White and co-director Ari Gibson made the short at The People.s Republic of Animation, the company White founded with high-school friends in Adelaide while studying acting at Flinders University.

The shingle was eventually bought by video game developer Halfbrick Studios (creators of Fruit Ninja), but White had already moved on, in 2012, as the company began to specialise in video games and apps..

.I chose to go freelance, because I just wanted to make films at that stage, and I could see that wasn.t the business model for them,. he said.

White spent a couple of years developing an animated feature with Gibson which never got off the ground, as well as churning out short animations on commission. »

8 February 2017 9:08 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Judy Garland’s infamously difficult, traumatizing childhood has become a disturbing Hollywood legend in the year since her untimely death at age 47. But now, a new autobiography claims that Garland’s experiences on the set of Victor Fleming’s “The Wizard of Oz” are worse than previously reported. According to Garland’s late husband Sid Luft, whose autobiography “Judy and I: My Life with Judy Garland” is finally being posthumously published, says that she was frequently groped and molested by the actors playing the Munchkins.

Posthumous memoir by Garland’s ex-husband Sid Luft claims teenage star was groped by actors on set

In the key scene in the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz, Judy Garland skips down the yellow brick road with her dog Toto and hundreds of helpful munchkins. But the reality of the shoot was far less happy, according to a newly discovered memoir by Garland’s former husband.

“They would make Judy’s life miserable on set by putting their hands under her dress,” wrote Sid Luft in the forthcoming posthumous book, Judy and I: My Life With Judy Garland. “The men were 40 or more years old. They thought they could get away with anything because they were so small.”

Judy Garland was immortalized as she happily skipped down the Yellow Brick Road with the Munchkins in one of the most beloved movies of all time, “The Wizard of Oz.” However, her ex-husband claims that in real life the then-teenage actress was tormented by the Munchkins and was repeatedly sexually harassed by them on set. “They would make Judy’s life miserable on set by putting their hands under her dress … The men were 40 or more years old,” Sid Luft wrote in new, posthumous memoir titled “Judy and I: My Life with Judy Garland.” “They thought they could get away with anything because. »

6 Black And White Movies That Should Never Be Colorized

7 February 2017 8:43 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“Is it black and white?” At some point, every kid will ask that question, and when it’s geared towards you, you won’t want to answer it. Why? Because chances are the movie in question is a great flick, one that you’re dying to watch, and by answering ‘yes,’ you’re afraid that its credibility will lessen. And that’s a terrible feeling.

What younger audiences always forget is that film started out black and white, and without that “prehistoric” technology, the glossy, explosion-filled action eye-candy they adore would never happen. Black and white films are a powerful art form in themselves, not just a stage before glorious Technicolor. They can emphasize theme, capture feeling and represent an idea (among other uses). Over the years, some directors have opted to make their movie monochromatic even though color was an option; the choice is not always only artistic, sometimes, »

Oscars: How Often Do Musicals Result in Best Actor and Best Actress Nominations and Wins?

6 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling in ‘La La Land’ (Courtesy: Lionsgate)

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

Not only is La La Land breaking records as the most-nominated musical in Oscar history but that haul of 14 nominations for its lead pair, Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. Musicals don’t often get that much love from the Academy Awards and getting recognition in both the best actor and best actress categories is even rarer. Let’s take a look back at the history of this happening and see how Stone and Gosling’s nominations — and potential wins — are important.

Taking a look at this year’s nominations, Stone is favored to win more than Gosling is for their work in the Damien Chazelle-directed musical. Gosling is up against Casey Affleck (Manchester by the Sea), Andrew Garfield (Hacksaw Ridge), Viggo Mortensen (Captain Fantastic), and Denzel Washington (Fences) — with the latter expected to reign supreme. »

He was the leader of the free world and had several global crises to handle, but that didn’t mean President John F. Kennedy didn’t have time for a quick serenade of “Over the Rainbow” from The Wizard of Oz star herself: Judy Garland.

If the present is a little too hard to take at the moment, you can escape into the past and future in director Jamie Greenberg’s low-budget, truly independent paean to the screwball comedies of the 1930s — Future 38. In an on-camera introduction that breaks the fourth wall, celebrity astrophysicist Neal Lagrasse explains the re-discovery of an early Technicolor film — made one year before Gone With The Wind and The Wizard of Oz — that accurately predicted the near future, the year 2018 to be exact.

Her iconic character Dorothy set out to find happiness “Over the Rainbow” in The Wizard of Oz. But off-screen, Judy Garland‘s quest for peace was plagued by insecurity, depression and drug abuse.

How Judy Garland’s Struggle with Food and Need to Stay ‘Camera Slim’ Fueled Her Drug Addiction

27 January 2017 9:35 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Judy Garland was just 16 when she starred in her breakout role, 1939’s The Wizard of Oz. At just 4 feet, 11½ inches, Garland had a cute, girl-next-door charm helped set her apart from her glamorous contemporaries like Elizabeth Taylor and Ava Gardner. But with success would come the need to maintain her youthful looks and thin frame — pressures from Hollywood studio MGM that would fuel the legendary songstress’ drug abuse and eventually lead to her death.

Now, more than four decades after an accidental drug overdose took her life at age 47, a new memoir about the late star pulls back the curtain on Garland’s demons. »
