10 years ago today: ‘Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby’ opened in theaters

4 August 2016 8:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

One decade ago today, we first learned the story of American hero Ricky Bobby. Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby opened in theaters 10 years ago today. Audiences came out in droves that weekend for the comedy starring Will Ferrell as a winning-obsessed Nascar driver. Behind The Lego Movie, Talladega Nights remains Ferrell’s second largest movie opening.  The movie reunited Ferrell with his Anchorman director Adam McKay. The two of them, along with John C. Reilly (who plays Ricky Bobby’s teammate Cal Naughton Jr. in Talladega Nights) would soon team up again for Step Brothers. Other notable August 4 happenings in pop culture history: • 1942: Bing Crosby-Fred Astaire film Holiday Inn premiered in New York. Crosby song “White Christmas” is featured in the movie musical. • 1957: The Everly Brothers made their second appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. They introduced their upcoming single, “Wake Up Little Susie »

Ramsay’s Hotel Hell review – a tired recipe undermined by the lack of a key fact

30 June 2016 11:20 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Gordon Ramsay is in his element calling out a lamentable mismanagement, but missed the underlying tragedy. Plus Freud, the third of Bettany Hughes’s ‘geniuses’

Gordon Ramsay is, like escargots à la bourguignonne, a bit of an acquired taste. His bounciness, which he clearly thinks is infectious, is merely exhausting; his liberal use of the F-word tiresome; the rather tired recipe (in the management rather than the culinary sense) he produces for rescuing an ailing hotel business as limp as the salads the establishment is producing before he pitches up.

The ailing – indeed failing – establishment featured in the first episode of the new series of (Channel 4) is the Angler’s Lodge in Idaho. The setting, beside a river, looks gorgeous. Even the “Be Bear Aware” sign would not put me off. Ramsay is there in winter, and it looks like that lodge in Vermont run by the old general »

Alejandro G. Inarritu wins DGA Award for The Revenant, full list of winners here

7 February 2016 10:56 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

For the second year in a row (and the first time they’ve ever handed out back-to-back awards), the Directors Guild of America has honoured Alejandro G. Inarritu with the top prize at the Directors Guild of America Awards, with Inarittu collecting Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film for The Revenant.

Inarritu won the DGA Award last year for Birdman, and went on to collect the Best Director award at the Oscars. Should he repeat the feat this year with The Revenant, he’d become only the third director in history to win back-to-back Best Director Academy Awards after John Ford and Joseph Mankiewicz.

And, should The Revenant also win Best Picture, it would be the first time a director has ever won back-to-back Oscars for Best Director and Best Picture.

Here’s the full list of winners from last night:
