'Singles' at 25: Cameron Crowe on Making the Definitive Grunge Movie

18 September 2017 8:50 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

By the time Cameron Crowe made Singles in 1992, the 35-year-old director was already a decade into his career's second act. A former journalist for Rolling Stone, he'd pivoted towards the movies after adapting his book about going undercover at a Los Angeles high school – Fast Times at Ridgemont High – for the screen in 1982. And his directorial debut, Say Anything... (1989), proved that he had a knack for capturing teen spirit.

Crowe, however, wanted his audience to grow up with him, so for his follow-up movie, he turned his attention to twentysomethings. »

Benedict Cumberbatch Doesn’t Understand Why ‘Doctor Who’ and ‘Sherlock’ Can’t Have a Female Hero

18 September 2017 6:06 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Earlier this year, BBC made a groundbreaking announcement when it revealed “Broadchurch” actress Jodie Whitaker would be the new lead on “Doctor Who,” making her the first female doctor since the series first began over 50 years ago. The news was a cause for celebration, but of course a certain section of the fandom was not too pleased the show was making a gender switch. Within hours of the announcement, the hashtags #NotMyDoctor and #NurseWho became the official slogans of the opposition. The months since have seen the BBC and previous Doctors defend Whitaker, and you can count fellow BBC favorite Benedict Cumberbatch among her most vocal supporters.

In Case You Didn't Know, Marilyn Monroe's Real Name Wasn't Actually Marilyn Monroe

13 September 2017 12:10 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

It's been 55 years since Marilyn Monroe died, but she will forever be remembered as a Hollywood legend. The actress, who garnered fame after appearing in the first-ever edition of Playboy magazine in December 1953, starred in several films, including Some Like It Hot, The Seven Year Itch, and The Prince and the Showgirl. Still, there are a couple things you may not know about the star - like her real name, for example. While most people knew Marilyn by her stage name, the star was actually born Norma Jeane Mortenson and baptized Norma Jeane Baker. When she married her first husband, James Dougherty, in 1942, she took his last name and became Norma Jeane Dougherty. She began using her stage name in 1946 after she and James split but didn't legally change it until 1956. When she married playwright Arthur Miller in 1956, she preferred to be addressed as Marilyn Monroe Miller and even used the initials Mmm. »

The Great British Bake Off 2017, episode two – as it happened

Biscuit week – but which bakers snapped into gear, and which crumbled?

Steven with an jarringly emotional takeaway message. Tough Flo reveals her own Arnold Schwarzenegger tendencies. She’ll be back.

And so will I! Next week is bread week, and it looks spectacular from that trailer. Plus, I’ve figured out who everyone is now, which can only lift the whole experience.

9.12pm BST

He’s done the double. He’s...[insert apposite football reference]

Chris meanwhile is sent packing. Like a thinner Charlie Brooker, or a slightly camper Graham Norton, he was too good for this world. But not good enough for the tent.

Save Flo. Flo can’t go. I need her, even without the Flo-titles.

The Best Classic Movies for People Who Don’t Watch Older Films — IndieWire Critics Survey

28 August 2017 10:39 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

A recent article (based on a very unscientific poll) argued that millennials don’t really care about old movies. Maybe that’s true, and maybe it isn’t, but the fact remains that many people disregard classic cinema on principle. These people are missing out, but it only takes one film — the right film — to change their minds and forever alter their viewing habits.

This week’s question: What is one classic film you would recommend to someone who doesn’t watch them?

‘Some Like It Hot’ Tops BBC’s List of the 100 Greatest Comedies of All Time

22 August 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Last year, the BBC polled nearly 200 critics in an attempt to determine the 100 Greatest Films of the 21st Century. This year, they’ve assembled another cinema poll, one that is bound to spark just as many debates, as they tried to pin down the 100 Greatest Comedies of All Time. Billy Wilder’s classic Some […]

BBC Culture Names the Top 100 Comedies of All Time, From ‘Some Like It Hot’ to ‘Airplane!’

22 August 2017 6:53 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“Well, nobody’s perfect,” may be the last line of “Some Like It Hot,” but BBC Culture’s newest list of the 100 greatest comedies of all time comes pretty darn close. Billy Wilder’s cross-dressing buddy comedy earned the most votes, but the rest of the list is as robust and varied as one would hope, containing slam dunk smash hits as well as lesser known hidden gems.

The survey included responses from 253 film critics internationally, with freelancers writing in from Syria, Azerbaijan, and Montenegro. For a deeper dive into your favorite critics’ comedic tastes, each individual top ten list is also available for perusal. IndieWire’s Eric Kohn, David Ehrlich, and Kate Erbland participated; their number one picks were “City Lights,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” and “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation,” respectively.

The 100 Greatest Comedies of All-Time, According to BBC’s Critics Poll

22 August 2017 5:43 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After polling critics from around the world for the greatest American films of all-time, BBC has now forged ahead in the attempt to get a consensus on the best comedies of all-time. After polling 253 film critics, including 118 women and 135 men, from 52 countries and six continents a simple, the list of the 100 greatest is now here.

Featuring canonical classics such as Some Like It Hot, Dr. Strangelove, Annie Hall, Duck Soup, Playtime, and more in the top 10, there’s some interesting observations looking at the rest of the list. Toni Erdmann is the most recent inclusion, while the highest Wes Anderson pick is The Royal Tenenbaums. There’s also a healthy dose of Chaplin and Lubitsch with four films each, and the recently departed Jerry Lewis has a pair of inclusions.

Check out the list below (and my ballot) and see more on their official site.

The Best Queer Films You Didn’t Know Were Queer, From ‘Fight Club’ To ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit?’

7 July 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Hanky codes. Septum piercings. A knowing glance. Since we’ve been around (at least as far back as ancient Greece), queer people have learned to read between the lines to find kindred spirits out in the world — and onscreen. While straight cinephiles scratched their heads at the recent claim that Jennifer Kent’s “The Babadook” is a queer icon, Lgbt audiences were unsurprised: We have always known how to make our own fun.

Old Hollywood movies had to dance around overtly queer stories, although that didn’t stop them from scoring big with thematically queer classics “Some Like It Hot,” “Rope” and “Rebecca.” (To say nothing of any movie musical ever made). The tides of change slowly but surely progressed throughout the ’70s and 80’s, on to the New Queer Cinema boom of the ’90s. However, even after the success of “Moonlight, »

For Our Consideration: What did Lgbtq movies look like before Stonewall?

28 June 2017 1:15 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

“Well, nobody’s perfect!”

Some Like It Hot, 1959

Queer themes wrote themselves into the history of film early on—a statistical inevitability, because even in those periods when explicitly Lgbtq characters and plots were kept out of the mainstream, there were bound to be a few gay or bisexual men behind the camera. Among these were some of the canonical greats of the first half-century of movies: F.W. Murnau, Jean Cocteau, George Cukor, James Whale, et al. Of course, they were all male. When it comes to American sound film before the 1950s, notable examples of bona fide sapphic ogling are pretty much limited to the giggly, touchy, silk-nightie-hung gal pals of The Wild Party (1929), directed by Dorothy Arzner, who was about as out as a woman could be at the time while pursuing a high-profile career.

iZombie The Complete Third Season Heads Home With Extra Brains

17 June 2017 2:04 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and Warner Archive Collection are bringing the magic of iZombie‘s Third Season home on Blu-Ray and DVD on October 3rd, 2017. All 13 Episodes are here, along with the 2016 Comic-Con Panel and some never-before-seen deleted scenes.

The CW hit still isn’t getting the attention it deserves, and that’s becoming even more infuriating for the show’s 2 million plus weekly viewers, because it’s getting even better every season. Not only is it diving into its characters and exploring a wide variety of themes, but it turns its own characters upside-down every once in a while, and Blaine’s season three spin is just the most glaring example.

You might have hoped for a bit more in the special feature department, but at least you are getting a few treats.

Goodbye Charlie – 1964 DVD Review and Tribute to Debbie Reynolds

14 June 2017 8:26 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

It was a serious sucker punch to all film fans when we lost Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds within a day of each other.  There have been many tributes to Carrie Fisher and rightfully so.  I have not seen that many for Debbie Reynolds so I would like to pay her tribute by reviewing one of her lost gems of a movie, Goodbye Charlie from 1964, based on a play by George Axelrod and directed by Vincent Minnelli.

I can recall seeing this on a network movie night in the late 60s or early 70s, I remember liking it but seeing it again after this many years I was astonished at how funny it really is, and how touching.

The setup is simple, Charlie Sorrell is a writer, sometime screen writer and notorious womanizer.  At a Hollywood party on a yacht he is shot by a jealous husband (Walter Matthau in »

iZombie Season 3 Blu-Ray And DVD Release Date Revealed

13 June 2017 10:04 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite having three episodes yet to air at the time of this writing, I will still say with unwavering confidence that the third season of iZombie may very well be its strongest offering to date. Featuring an intricately plotted overarching narrative and compelling murder mysteries each week, this particular series has set itself apart from other DC TV shows insofar that it’s not about superheroes, but rather, seamlessly blends the horror, comedy and drama genres. In other words, it’s clever, it’s funny and may be one of the best things on TV.

This year, Liv Moore and the gang have had their hands full, to say the least. So, while lead actress Rose McIver continues to essentially play a new character with each episode (Liv’s consuming of brains allows her to take on the personality traits of murder victims, and to experience their memories), Clive has »

7 Conspiracy Theories About Marilyn Monroe’s Death From Murderous Kennedys to UFOs

1 June 2017 4:51 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

When Marilyn Monroe was found dead in her home in 1962, it was ruled a probable suicide by authorities. The 36 year old star of films like “The Misfits” and “Some Like it Hot” had a history of mental illness and substance abuse, and her body was surrounded by pills. However, conspiracy theories about her death have swirled ever since — some more plausible than others. Her association with the Kennedy family got her killed Monroe’s alleged relationship with the Kennedy family factors in almost all conspiracy theories about her death.

16 May 1959: A funny film with an odd flavour of humour

Films by Billy Wilder are always efficient and often funny; but their fun has an odd flavour. Evidently he knows much about writing films and directing them – in Some Like it Hot (at the London Pavilion) he has, again, done both jobs and done them well – but he seems to be ignorant about the more fastidious susceptibilities of his audience or at least he makes a point of flouting them.
