Chicago – One of the great events in Chicago to interact with celebrity favorites is at the “Hollywood Celebrities and Memorabilia Show.” In 2011, the autumn event took place on October 1st and 2nd, and featured the “Happy Days” TV gang Henry Winkler, Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams, plus Barry Bostwick and Patricia Quinn from “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.”

The latest Hollywood Celebrities and Memorabilia Show was the last such event for founders Ray and Sharon McCourt, as they headed for retirement. The show will go on, however, as new ownership will bring “The Hollywood Show” to Chicago in March, 2012.

Chillerama (2011) Review

9 December 2011 9:46 PM, PST | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

by Jesse Miller, MoreHorror.com

It’s closing night at Kaufman Drive-In, a small drive-in theatre, and to send things off with a bang, owner Cecil B. Kaufman (Richard Riehle) has planned one last nasty little marathon for his loyal patrons.

The marathon in question is Chillerama, a nasty little collection of some lost and forgotten horror films that are only now seeing the light day.

First up on the line-up is “Wadzilla”, both a throwback and a spoof of the 50’s monster flick.

Written & Directed by Adam Rifkin (Detroit Rock City, Bone Chillers), Wadzilla tells the story of mild mannered businessman Miles Munson (Rifkin), who, after undertaking an experimental drug to raise his sperm count, discovers that the drug has dire side effects and that his sperm has mutated into something quite sinister.

Wadzilla captures that charm of the 50’s monster film perfectly – from the look and feel of »

On Searching for Jeff Mangum, Notes from Town Hall

30 October 2011 3:28 PM, PDT | Speakeasy/Wall Street Journal | See recent Speakeasy/Wall Street Journal news »

“In the Aeroplane Over the Sea”

It’s safe to assume that many fans attending the sold-out Jeff Mangum concert Saturday night arrived at Manhattan’s Town Hall with outsize expectations — and a lot of questions.

Among them: How would the former Neutral Milk Hotel frontman’s voice sound? How would he look? Would he play new material? Is there new material? And what in the world has he been doing for the last 12 years? (To get caught up on the extremely strange Mangum backstory, »

Banned Books Week: Read 'The Hunger Games' or the 'Koran'

27 September 2011 4:36 PM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Thanks to the vigilance of the American Library Association (Ala), the list of books banned or challenged in 2010-2011 isn't as long as it could be, but it's long enough to keep a person out of books for at least a year. Every year during Banned Book Week the Ala works to keep books considered controversial, obscene or profane on library shelves and in schools.

In the past year, books in danger of censorship include Suzanne Collins' popular "Hunger Games" series, which was adapted into a screenplay and will arrive in theaters sometime in 2012 to torment parents and others who think it numbs kids to violence. A Virginia school system also tried to ban "The Diary of Anne Frank," when it received a complaint that the book "sexual material and homosexual themes."

The Ala asks that from Sept. 24 - Oct. 1, lovers of literature read a banned book. Below, some »

Miriam Karlin obituary

3 June 2011 6:39 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Actor best known as Paddy, the militant shop steward in the BBC's The Rag Trade

The actor Miriam Karlin, who has died of cancer aged 85, became famous in the early 1960s as Paddy, the militant shop steward of a London clothing firm in the BBC television comedy series The Rag Trade. As Paddy, who was always willing to signal a strike with a whistle and her catchphrase "Everybody out!", Karlin was watched by millions, and quoted by millions. But neither that success, nor her more serious roles on stage, removed the gnawing dissatisfaction she felt at not achieving something more serious. She channelled some of that feeling into promoting broadly leftwing causes as a member of the council of the actors' union Equity, and as a campaigner for the Anti-Nazi League, the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament and Soviet Jewry.

She was born Miriam Samuels and brought up in Hampstead, north London, »

Ask the Flying Monkey: What Ever Happened to Pia Zadora?

29 April 2011 7:50 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Have a question about gay male entertainment? Contact me here (and be sure and include your city and state and/or country!

Q: What ever happened to Pia Zadora? Is she dead, alive, rich or poor? – Michael, New York NY

Pia Zadora then and now

A: For those who weren’t around or aware in the 1980’s, Pia Zadora was a young starlet who, in 1977, married a much older businessman, Meshulam Riklis, who decided to make her a star. He financed a soapy movie vehicle, 1982’s Butterfly, that ended up being one of the most reviled movies of the decade. But (allegedly) because Riklis had wined and dined the members of Hollywood Foreign Press, which give out the Golden Globe Awards, Zadora ended up winning the Golden Globe for “Best New Star of the Year” (over Kathleen Turner and Elizabeth McGovern).

Meanwhile, the movie racked up major Razzie Awards nominations »

Tmp Reviews: The Greatest Story Ever Told on Blu-ray

4 April 2011 4:12 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The Movie Pool takes in the Biblical epic The Greatest Story Ever Told on Blu-ray!

Blu-ray Specs

Aspect Ratio: 2.75:1 enhanced for widescreen TVs

Running Time: 199 minutes

Rating: G

Audio: English 5.1 DTS-hd Ma, Spanish Dolby Surround, French 5.1 Dolby Digital

Subtitles: English for the hearing impaired, French

Special Features: "He Walks in Beauty" Documentary, "The Filmmaker" Documentary, Deleted Scene, Theatrical Trailer

The Set-up

The life of Jesus Christ is given a faithful rendition by legendary filmmaker George Stevens, the man behind classics like Gunga Din, A Place in the Sun, Giant, and The Diary of Anne Frank.

The Delivery

This Biblical epic was widely criticized upon its release for being too long and using too many well known actors (like John Wayne), that turned the attention away from the story. Critics were correct about the use of big movie stars, but as time has passed their use is not as glaring. »

Tennessee 100: "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" (1958)

21 March 2011 6:30 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Robert G from Sketchy Details here to discuss the real star of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof for this Tennessee Williams Centennial Week. The beauty of the fifties screen adaptation of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is not in the quality of the performances, set design, or cinematography. It comes from the tightly-wound dialog and plot structure adapted from Tennessee Williams' stage play.

Elizabeth Taylor and a No Neck Monster

For this one-day tale of adults acting as foolish as children, the true nature of the story is revealed when the characters pull away from the lines they learned by heart. The dialog is a mask used by the characters to hide their true feelings about everyone else. Even something as ridiculous as Maggie's (Oscar nominated Elizabeth Taylor) constant put-downs of the "no-neck monsters" is nothing but an act of misdirection.

Brick has major emotional hurdles to leap. »

Melissa Leo, By The Numbers

15 February 2011 1:48 PM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

My conversations with industry insiders and Academy members lead me to believe that Melissa Leo (“The Fighter”) remains the favorite to win the best supporting actress Academy Award, despite — or perhaps even because of — the recent brouhaha over her “Consider” advertisements. In terms of statistical analysis, though, one can find cause for both confidence and concern about her Oscar prospects…

Cause for Concern: The BAFTA-ampas Disconnect

British voters are believed to make up a sizable portion of the Academy, and BAFTA Award winners — which were announced after the Oscars prior to 2000, and have been announced before them since then — usually correspond with Oscar winners. Therefore, it is certainly noteworthy that BAFTA didn’t like Leo’s performance enough to even nominate her for its best supporting actress award, but did like the one given by Hailee Steinfeld (“True Grit“), her primary rival at the Oscars, enough to nominate her in its best actress category. »

Dancing Queen

Though she has been an actor for the better part of her 29 years, Natalie Portman admits there was a time when she wondered if she should choose a different career.Portman recalls, "There were moments when I questioned it, when I was thinking, 'What is the purpose of this in our world? Is it as meaningful as being a doctor, being a teacher, or things that I think of as such noble professions?' But I think I've really reconciled myself with that, and I think art is not only important but critical to the soul of a human and the soul of a community. Not to be self-important about what I do, but I've found a lot of meaning in it." That said, she recognizes a certain degree of "silliness" to what she does. "There really is something ridiculous about dressing up and pretending to be someone else," she says with a laugh. »

Olivia Munn: I make TV shows naughty (pic)

14 January 2011 11:13 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Olivia Munn took the TCA press tour stage to support her new NBC sitcom Perfect Couples and revealed she has a unique ability to make any program more risque and edgy.

“I don’t think you can put me on a show and make it PC,” she said.

Hear that? Cast Munn in a PBS version of The Diary of Anne Frank and the script just no longer works without some skimpy outfits and suggestive Attack of the Show-style hot dog gobbling.

Speaking of Munn’s former G4 stomping ground, the actress said she didn’t really want to leave Attack, »
