Insert Credit: "Disney Epic Mickey"

30 November 2010 12:43 PM, PST | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

Insert Credit endeavors to suss out where you should be allotting your video game allowance, sifting out a single title from many and crowning it as The One Game You Need to Get This Week. Don't consider these reviews, gentle reader. Rather, think of Insert Credit as a mix of hands-on time, informed opinion and intuition.

For the week of November 29, 2010, you should insert credit into: "Disney Epic Mickey."

Everybody's been calling it "Epic Mickey" but the full name of the game includes the last name of the mega-entertainment company's founder Walt Disney, but it also now stands for a brand. For some, it's a saccharine, Pollyanna sensibility that's become shorthand for safe, bland entertainment.

It's easy to forget that there was a man behind the empire, a man full of the quirks and contradictions that we all possess. What "Disney Epic Mickey" restores is a bit of the variable »

Mm@M: Look Like Hayley Mills. Feel The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

23 August 2010 7:26 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Mad Men @ the Movies investigates cinema references... a fancy excuse to talk about tv's best series.

Episode 4.5 "The Chrysanthemum and the Sword"

In this episode Scdp attempts to win the Honda campaign but Sterling still hates the Japanese from his WWII days. Meanwhile, it's Draper Vs. Draper again as Don (Jon Hamm) and Betty (January Jones returns.) hurl hate at each other. Tween daughter Sally tries to tune them out by misbehaving i.e. engaging in perfectly normal behavior like masturbating. Uh oh! In one sequence Sally cuts her own hair, sending her babysitter and her father into hysterics.

Don: Why would she do that?

Babysitter: She probably wanted to look older or like Hayley Mills. I don't know."Heaven to hear 60s child star Hayley Mills (a personal fav) referenced on Mad Men. Hayley is best remembered today for the back-to-back family friendly classics Pollyanna (1960) and The Parent Trap »

Toni Collette Heads from 'Tara' to 'Foster'

1 April 2010 4:45 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

We're just getting back into The United States of Tara on Showtime and now Toni Collette is heading overseas. Deadline Hollywood reports that she and Ioan Gruffudd are starring in Foster -- a family film being shot in London that they describe as "a feel-good Sixth Sense." But it's more than just Casper-y. It seems that the supporting cast boasts Anne Reid, Richard E. Grant, and Hayley Mills. Yes, Ms. Child Star herself, who hasn't had a feature film since 2004's 2BPerfectlyHonest, and hasn't had a wide-spread feature since 1988's Appointment with Death.

Based on a 2005 short by Jonathan Newman (collaborating with producers Deepak Nayar), the film focuses on a couple (Collette and Gruffudd) who decide to adopt a child after their son is killed. "One day a boy unexpectedly arrives on their doorstep," which leads to the previously mentioned twist. Deadline's Tim Adler says: "It gives me shivers every time I think about it, »

Q&A: Hayley Mills

5 March 2010 4:10 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The worst thing anyone's said to me? 'Your father has died'

Hayley Mills, 63, was born in London, the daughter of the actor John Mills and the writer Mary Hayley Bell. She began her acting career at the age of 12, when she was cast alongside her father in the 1959 movie Tiger Bay, a performance for which she won a Bafta. She later signed to Walt Disney, for whom starred in Pollyanna and The Parent Trap, and her other film credits include Whistle Down The Wind and Sky West And Crooked. Since 2007, she has been appearing in the ITV series Wild At Heart. She has two sons and divides her time between London and New York, where she lives with her partner.

When were you happiest?

Now. This is the best time of my life.

What is your greatest fear?

I have a horror of being in confined spaces. Potholing is my idea of hell. »
