Novel Idea: Why Kids Need to Read the Book First

14 hours ago | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

  The book is always better. You have heard it before. You may have even said it. To be fair, we have had far too many reasons. The book-to-movie transitions, with a few notable exceptions like To Kill a Mockingbird or The Shawshank Redemption, have, for years, fallen short of readers and their great expectations. We have all walked out of the theater shaking our heads about things left out, storylines altered, and the “how could they do thats” that ruined every bit of...

Required High School Reads Worth Diving Into Again

3 September 2014 4:23 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Assigned high school reading definitely involved some snoozy titles - we're looking at you, Beowulf - but some of the books we discovered during class became favorites we've reread again and again. There were the go-to, coming-of-age crowd-pleasers like Catcher in the Rye, the poignant novels like To Kill a Mockingbird, and the classics we couldn't put down like Lord of the Flies and The Great Gatsby. Highlighting well-known titles plus a handful that may surprise you, our editors have shared which high school books they loved most. To get in the back-to-school spirit, take a look and add a few titles to your list of must reads! »

Film Nerd 2.0: How to fight parental franchise fatigue when raising kids in an endless summer

2 September 2014 3:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I didn't even realize there was a problem. And, believe me, I understand that as problems go, this is not a life-threatening one or a world-altering one… but it's something that finally caught my attention as I realized how we were starting to instill some bad habits in the boys. Rather, they were starting to pick up some bad habits, and I was allowing them to take root. And based on the last column I published in this series, it's definitely something I've encouraged. I love that my kids have a fairly broad palette in terms of what they will or won't watch with me. One of my proudest moments as a film nerd dad was when Toshi had a friend over and I heard him trying to convince his buddy to watch a Charlie Chaplin film. Black and white has never been a problem for them. Abbot and Costello, »

See Reddit users’ favorite movie from each year

2 September 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Throughout the summer, an admin on the r/movies subreddit has been leading Reddit users in a poll of the best movies from every year for the last 100 years called 100 Years of Yearly Cinema. The poll concluded three days ago, and the list of every movie from 1914 to 2013 has been published today.

Users were asked to nominate films from a given year and up-vote their favorite nominees. The full list includes the outright winner along with the first two runners-up from each year. The list is mostly a predictable assortment of IMDb favorites and certified classics, but a few surprise gems have also risen to the top of the crust, including the early experimental documentary Man With a Movie Camera in 1929, Abel Gance’s J’Accuse! in 1919, the Fred Astaire film Top Hat over Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps in 1935, and Stanley Kubrick’s The Killing over John Ford’s »

Bill Hader's List of the 200 Comedies You Need to Watch

1 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

If you regularly watch TCM, you already know that Bill Hader is a total cinephile, and he wants to share his love for movies with the world, particularly the younger set. That's why he's been host of Essentials, Jr. on Turner Classic Movies for the past few years, introducing relatively kid-friendly classics like To Kill a Mockingbird, the original Godzilla, Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton shorts, and Shane, which he programmed this past weekend. Not enough? Well, aside from putting movie lovers in stitches with his classic-film-star impressions -- including those of Vincent Price, John Barrymore, James Mason, Peter O'Toole and many more seen during his run on Saturday Night Live (he's even mimicked fellow TCM host Ben Mankiewicz) -- he now has a whopping...

On the Beach | Blu-Ray Review

26 August 2014 9:35 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Within the well intentioned lexicon of Stanley Kramer’s filmography, his 1959 title, On the Beach remains the most prescient, a post-apocalyptic science fiction filmed steeped in light melodrama. Winner of the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture Score (Ernest Gold) and a pair of Oscar nominations, nuclear fallout after the deployment of mankind’s deadliest war time weapons has rendered mankind obsolete with the exception of the inhabitants of Australia and the crew of the U.S. submarine Sawfish, guided by Captain Dwight Towers (Gregory Peck). An Sos signal in San Francisco leads Towers out with a crew to determine if the radioactivity has abated, but there’s no such luck. Worse, the radiation cloud will soon reach Australia’s shores, leaving the last remnants of humanity little time to grapple with the encroaching end.

As the last remaining humans navigate their remaining days of existence in Australia, paralyzed by »

Rhonyc Reunion: Ramona Singer Snaps When Andy Cohen Asks About Her Divorce

5 August 2014 11:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Part One of The Real Housewives of New York City reunion was filled with juicy lines, but Part Two on Tuesday was filled with fights. The tensest moment of the reunion came when host Andy Cohen asked Ramona Singer about her divorce from husband Mario and their current relationship. "Everyone in my family is doing well," Singer started, refusing to say anything further because of her daughter. "Mario and I are together … Let's go to someone else. Thanks, Andy." When Cohen tried to push the discussion, Singer pushed back. "So, how's your love life? Who are you going to have sex with tonight? »

New on Blu-ray and DVD: Twin Peaks! Ironclad 2! Oculus!

5 August 2014 12:14 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Brian De Palma's glam rock masterpiece Phantom of the Paradise hits Blu-ray for the first time thanks to Shout! Factory.

If you've never seen it, you owe it to yourself to check it out. And this is from someone who hates musicals with a passion. I was exposed to this one by an eccentric Language Arts high school teacher who seemed to find great joy in warping impressionable minds with cult movies from his formative years. He also let me write an essay on "Why Star Wars is a Western" instead of writing about "To Kill A Mockingbird," to which I will always be grateful.

Amanda’s Adaptations: To Kill a Mockingbird – Book Vs Film

25 July 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Reading To Kill a Mockingbird as a teenager had a massive impact on me. The powerful story with messages about tolerance, understanding and trying to see life from another’s perspective really opened my eyes to the everyday injustices of the world.

Harper Lee’s book is written from two perspectives in a way – a woman looking back at her childhood and that same child looking out into the world and asking questions adults didn’t dare ask. As a central character, Scout is miraculous. She is inquisitive and naughty but ultimately good. She tries to do her best, it’s just that her best frequently rubs people up the wrong way. Whether it’s the neighbours telling her off for dressing like a boy or her teacher telling her off for knowing how to read, the only person Scout seems to be able to be herself with is her father Atticus. »

Exclusive Premiere: Shovels & Rope's dark new song, 'Evil': Listen

23 July 2014 8:14 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent, collectively known as Shovels & Rope, release their sophomore set “Swimmin’ Time,” Aug. 26. The set follows the husband and wife duo's highly acclaimed breakthrough, ‘O’ Be Joyful,” a set of largely acoustic tales that featured their voices wrapping around each other and slithering in and out of stomping melodies, especially on the semi-autobiographical, “Birmingham,” which was named Song of the Year at the 2013 Americana Music Awards. One of the best tunes on “Swimmin’ Time” is the swampy, dark “Evil,” a story about two misfits, a young tomboy and an older man, who is emotionally lost following the sudden death of his wife and an accident that leaves him brain damaged. “The rough little girl takes pity on him and his children, bringing them apples, him, cigarettes and helping with the kids,” Hearst and Trent tell HitFix. “Their interaction raises suspicion in the small town, and »

The Decline of Harper Lee

20 July 2014 5:56 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

For Monroeville, Alabama, population 6,400 and shrinking, the summer of 2010 was momentous. Over a long July weekend, locals reenacted historical vignettes, held a silent auction, cooked a southern feast, and led tours of local landmarks. There was a documentary screening, two lawn parties, and a marathon reading of the novel whose 50th anniversary was the grand occasion. To Kill a Mockingbird, which needs no introduction — because it is the introduction, for most American children, to civil rights, literature, and the justice system — had sold nearly a million copies for each year in print. There were at least 50 other celebrations nationwide, but the epicenter was Monroeville, a place whose only real industry (the lingerie plant having recently shuttered) was Mockingbird-related tourism. It was not only the model for the novel’s fictional Maycomb but the home of its author, Harper Lee. She lived less than a mile from »
