Why Bing Crosby's 'White Christmas' Is the Best Holiday Song Ever

25 December 2014 1:10 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Bing Crosby once joked that a "jackdaw with a cleft palate could have sung it successfully." But if it wasn't for Crosby's soothing rendition of the Irving Berlin classic, "White Christmas" probably wouldn't have gone on to become the biggest-selling single worldwide of all time. In the American Masters documentary Bing Crosby Rediscovered - which debuted earlier this month on PBS but will air again at 9 p.m. Et on Dec. 26 - director Robert Trachtenberg looks back at the indelible mark the song made on both history and the crooner's legacy. "Bing had no problem being best known for this »

I Have Never Seen ‘White Christmas’

24 December 2014 8:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Classic Christmas movies have never been my bag. I’ve still not seen It’s a Wonderful Life and I’m iffy on musicals, too. I don’t dislike them or anything, there’s plenty I’ve enjoyed. I just haven’t seen a lot of older ones. But hell, White Christmas is my sister-in-law’s all-time favorite, apparently, so I decided to give it a shot. Here’s what’s weird about White Christmas: It’s oddly modern. By that, I mean it does a lot of things that people decry as the death of Hollywood ideas today. For example, it’s a remake. Specifically, it’s based on Holiday Inn (yes, like the hotel chain — they’re named after the film) which was another Irving Berlin movie and also starred Bing Crosby. That famous song, “White Christmas”? It didn’t even come from this film. It came from Holiday Inn and they just re-used »

Some Crosby For Christmas

18 December 2014 4:00 AM, PST | Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy | See recent Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy news »

No entertainer is more associated with Christmas than Bing Crosby, who introduced Irving Berlin’s “White Christmas” in the 1942 movie Holiday Inn. His recording of the song remains the best-selling single of all time which, along with constant showings of the 1954 movie White Christmas, keeps the star in the public eye (and ear). His rendition of “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” has even made its way onto Billboard’s Top 100 chart this month, currently resting at #71. A recent installment of PBS’ American Masters has reinforced interest in all things Bing. There is no shortage of new Crosby product, including a new DVD collection from Universal called Bing Crosby:...

A History Of Repeat Blackface Offenders

8 August 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

There is no question that blackface is a racist trope too regularly used on film, TV, and in magazines. While not nearly as rampant as it was in the 1930s, there have been hundreds of instances of blackface employed in the past twenty years. Everyone from Paris Hilton to Ben Stiller and Jimmy Fallon to Billy Crystal has donned a form of blackface in an attempt to be funny, controversial, or — in Hilton’s case — cute. (The things people will do for a laugh.)

The most recent use of blackface is by a repeat offender, Chris Lilley (pictured above), who is the star of the new HBO series, Jonah from Tonga. The series, which follows the story of a Tongan teenager, features Lilley in brownface make-up and a curly wig. In other series, the actor has portrayed S.mouse, an African American rap artist from California and Jen Okazaki, a Japanese mother of three. »

Disney Classics Getting Blu-Ray Release August 12th – Tarzan, Hercules, And More

6 August 2014 2:18 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

A slew of classic Disney movies are hitting for the first time on Blu-Ray, including one double-pack release, and you’re going to want to make sure to pick these up. You haven’t paid attention to some of these titles for a while, and it’s about time you got the chance to catch them on Blu-Ray. The best part is that there’s a great mix of releases hitting. Bedknobs and Broomsticks is all but lost in the cultural consciousness, and it deserves a return. The Academy Award-winning movie from the year I was born is filled with a lot of fun and adventure, and like most Disney films, holds up well for a whole new generation.

The rest of the group covers a great spectrum, including two animated “big” titles, and a 10th Anniversary release. There’s a lot to expose your family to here, so check out all the info below, »

Our Eight Favorite Easter Flicks

10 April 2014 7:02 AM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

There may be more Christmas movies than movies set in Canada, and pretty much every horror flick counts as a Halloween flick. Even New Year's Eve has dozens of great movies centered around it, but when it comes to Easter, there's practically nothing. In fact, to the undiscerning eye, it may look like it's easier to pick a movie for Flag Day than it is for Easter—c'mon Hollywood, even Groundhog's Day has, well, Groundhog's Day.

Despite the paucity of obvious candidates, though, there are in fact quite a few good movies for Easter viewing, even for those of us who aren't religious (and if you are, then you don't need us to remind of of staples like The Greatest Story Ever Told or The Last Temptation of Christ). Here's our recommendation for Easter-themed flicks to enjoy that do more to celebrate (or, in many cases, lampoon) the holiday than just featuring a rabbit. »

Happy New Year 2014

31 December 2013 8:01 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

As Bing Crosby sang in Holiday Inn

Kissing the old year out

Kissing the new year in

Let’s watch the old year die

With a fond good-bye

And our hopes as high

As a kite

How can our love go wrong if

We start the new year right?

As we say so long to 2013, here’s a look back on the past year in film.

Happy New Year and Cheers From Wamg! We wish you all the best in 2014!
