‘Redrum: The Unauthorized Musical Parody of The Shining’ to Hit the Stage Next Fall

21 November 2014 10:09 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Though it’s packed with unnerving moments from start to finish, viewers of The Shining may remember the ghost of Delbert Grady telling Jack Torrance that he must “correct” his wife and child as a particularly creepy scene, and next year fans of the film can see Delbert’s suggestion mixed with dancing and humor onstage in a musical theater parody of Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 horror classic.

If you enjoyed Stephen King’s 1977 novel, The Shining, have watched Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 film adaptation of the same name multiple times, or enjoyed watching horror and humor melded in a live show like Evil Dead The Musical, then you may want to check out the upcoming Redrum: The Unauthorized Musical Parody of The Shining. Set to hit the stage sometime next fall, the musical parody made an onstage sneak peek performance on Wednesday night.

Film Review: ‘Paddington’

19 November 2014 11:27 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“No bears were harmed in the making of this film,” boast the closing credits of “Paddington” — and happily, that promise extends to Michael Bond’s ursine literary creation. 56 years after first appearing in print, the accident-prone Peruvian furball is brought to high-tech but thoroughly endearing life in this bright, breezy and oh-so-British family romp from writer-director Paul King and super-producer David Heyman. Affectionately honoring the everyday quirks of Bond’s stories, while subtly updating their middle-class London milieu, King’s film may divide loyal Paddingtophiles with its high-stakes caper plot, but their enraptured kids won’t care a whit. If Paddington’s signature line — “I think I’m in trouble again” — is absent from his feature-length debut, that’s because even the fretful bear should feel bullish about its prospects.

With “Paddington” out in Blighty on Nov. 28, roaring domestic holiday biz is a given, though whether TWC-Dimension can sell U. »

Kristen Bell Sings the Most Tech-Savvy Holiday Jam: 'Text Me Merry Christmas'

17 November 2014 1:02 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

It's not exactly a Mariah Carey "All I Want for Christmas Is You," but Kristen Bell's new holiday tune is going viral and is sure to make you "Lol."

The Frozen actress and a capella group Straight No Chaser have joined forces for "Text Me Merry Christmas," which makes getting a good old SMS into a delightful Christmas carol.

The song is just as silly as it is catchy.

News: Kristen Bell Plays Mary Poppins

Bell, 34, starts the song by texting someone from far away and sings, "So please remember this December to fully charge your phone."

Sounding just as beautiful as her character Anna in Frozen, Bell belts, "Just a word or two of text from you will remind me you're still there. You don't have to add much to it. One smiley face will do."

Soundtracking: Disney's Top 10 Greatest Songs

16 November 2014 9:05 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

 

It was 25 years ago today that Disney’s The Little Mermaid hit theatres, rejuvenating a slumbering animation giant and igniting a new era for the studio that would produce some of its greatest and most beloved hits. The Little Mermaid  -- on sale at the Cineplex Store for its anniversary! -- also featured dazzling songs from Alan Menkenand Howard Ashman, helping set a high musical bar for the films that would follow in its wake.

In honour of the film’s anniversary, we are pleased to present a list of the Top 10 Disney songs of all-time.

In the interest of fairness, only one song was chosen per film and the list is restricted to films from Disney Animation Studios.

10. “Heigh-Ho” from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)

Judy Murray and Anton du Beke exit Strictly Come Dancing in Blackpool

16 November 2014 12:00 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Judy Murray and her dance partner Anton du Beke have become the seventh couple to be eliminated from Strictly Come Dancing.

The tennis coach and her professional partner lost out in the dance-off to Casualty actress Sunetra Sarker and her partner Brendan Cole in the show's Blackpool special.

Murray and Du Beke had struggled in Saturday's live show, scoring 24 points for their Viennese Waltz to 'Let's Go Fly a Kite' from Mary Poppins and landing at the bottom of the leaderboard last night (November 15).

They were joined in the bottom two by Sarker and Cole, who scored 30 points for their samba to the Scissor Sisters' 'I Don't Feel Like Dancin''.

Both couples found themselves having to perform again after the judges scores and viewer votes were combined.

Craig Revel Horwood, Darcey Bussell and Bruno Tonioli all chose to save Sarker and Cole, with head judge Len Goodman adding that he agreed with their choice. »

Film Review: ‘Miss Meadows’

12 November 2014 10:47 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Middling “Miss Meadows” blends black comedy, character study and thriller elements into a mixture that doesn’t quite gel, though it’s watchable enough. Katie Holmes plays a secretive newcomer to a lower-middle-class neighborhood whose bad people begin suffering deaths at the hand of a mysterious vigilante — as they did, we soon glean, in her previous places of residence. The premise holds more promise than Karen Leigh Hopkins’ screenplay and direction ultimately deliver, resulting in a polished but unmemorable minor item destined for decent home-format sales. eOne is opening it on single Los Angeles and New York screens this Friday, simultaneous with VOD launch.

Mary Meadows (Holmes) is introduced walking down a leafy residential street, communing with local birdies and breaking into an occasional tap dance — drawing immediate parallels to Mary Poppins and other Disneyfied do-gooders that the film might have developed further, to more wittily subversive ends, than it manages. »

Constantine episode 3 review: The Devil's Vinyl

9 November 2014 11:35 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Constantine takes a step in the right direction with this week's episode, which introduces Papa Midnite...

This review contains spoilers.

1.3 The Devil's Vinyl

Now that’s more like it! Constantine has found its legs this week, and while it hasn’t entirely shed the problems of the first two episodes, The Devil’s Vinyl offers a blend of horror, humour, and action that’s hard to argue with for entertainment value. Add the introduction of Hellblazer fan favorite Papa Midnite (Michael James Shaw) and this one comes out strong.

Aside from laying some ground rules and explaining the seemingly endless string of supernatural goodies in Constantine’s Mary Poppins bag, this third episode dispenses with the exposition that has bogged down the show thus far. This week, the monster of the week isn’t a front for world-building or character development, and it’s scarier and more believable for it. »

Doctor Who blogging: “Death in Heaven”

9 November 2014 2:32 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

[previous: “Dark Water”]

warning: spoilers!

Okay. So, Missy was specifically targeting the Doctor because she missed her friend and wanted to pull his pigtails. And her grand plan to get him to a specific place to do a specific Thing was indeed — as I lamented last week appeared to be the case — all built on a pile of suppositions based on events that were unlikely to happen and, even then, would further require that the Doctor behave in ways he is not inclined to behave.

Okay then.

But you know what’s even worse? Steven Moffat is now stealing plots from Ed Wood-esque parodies of science fiction. Because this:

is pretty much this:

With “Death in Heaven,” ‘Doctor Who’ Finishes Series 8 On a High Note, Leaving Us Wanting More

8 November 2014 11:28 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The biggest problem I have with the Doctor Who series 8 finale, “Death in Heaven,” is really a compliment: there wasn’t enough Missy (Michelle Gomez). The female incarnate of the Master is one of the most enjoyable villains I’ve seen in a long time, on television or in the movies. She’s a wicked blend of Bond nemesis and evil Mary Poppins (with a dash of Marilyn Monroe impersonation), and it’s probably for the best that I was left wanting more. That’s usually a sign that the desired element was employed just enough. I got the impression that her “death” is more her teleporting away just in time, so it’s likely the rival Time Lord will be back in the future, but it’s unlikely that Gomez will be playing him/her. Hopefully it’s not the last we see of her in general. The current era of 007 movies could use an Irma »

Recap: 'Doctor Who' - 'Death In Heaven' brings series 8 to a heart-wrenching finale

8 November 2014 7:15 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Well folks, this is it. We made it to the series 8 finale for “Doctor Who.” After tonight, we will be bereft of Time Lord shenanigans until the Christmas special. Let’s savor every last gut-wrenching moment of “Death In Heaven.” ****** Things pick up right where we left off last week in “Dark Water.” The solitary Cyberman in the office with Clara is on the warpath. But it’s the slow, plodding warpath “Who” villains save for main characters. Instead of vaporizing her on the spot, the Cyberman hesitates just long enough for Clara to be very clever. There is no Clara Oswald. There never was. She was a figment of the Doctor’s imagination. Clara is, in actuality, the Doctor.  Jenna Coleman sells this monologue so hard that not only is the Cyberman convinced, but I’m half hoping that this is the twist of the season. How amazing would »

Doctor Who recap: series 34, episode 12 Death in Heaven

8 November 2014 1:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

What a finale episode. Action-packed, uncompromising, filled with genuine emotion and how briliant was Michelle Gomez as Missy?

Well, to use the Twelfth Doctors favourite phrase, that was definitely a thing. Cybermen running amok across every corner of Earth, all of humanitys dead repurposed as the Masters army, the redemption of Danny Pink, Unit being fierce and a cameo of sorts from Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart. If last weeks opening act suffered just slightly by indulging its esoteric high concept at the expense of action, this is what a high-stakes Doctor Who finale is supposed to look like.

And yet it was also brutal, laden with emotions and consequences even the lovely Unit fangirl Osgood didnt get saved. This was brutal stuff. If the resolution of last weeks Who is Missy mystery might have threatened to suck the tension out of this episode, it was made up for by how brilliant Michelle Gomez is in the role. »

Doctor Who series 8: Death In Heaven review

7 November 2014 5:18 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Spoilers: Doctor Who series 8's finale didn't let the side down after the excellent Dark Water. Here's our review...

This review contains spoilers. Our spoiler-free review is here.

8.12 Death In Heaven

"Nethersphere's just a cool name we came up with during a spitball"

Well, for a start, you have to feel sorry for Sanjeev Bhaskar. His joy when he landed a role in the Doctor Who finale proved to come with a sting. Turns out he was barely in Death In Heaven for more than a minute or two of screen time, before he was sucked out of an aeroplane window. Them's the breaks, a phrase we've no intention of ever using again.

Mind you, he was in good company. How many times have we got to the end of a series of Doctor Who, and bemoaned the fact that the show was too protective of its characters? That not »

Few Films to Open AFI Fest Have Garnered Oscar Nominations

6 November 2014 8:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

The American Film Institute’s AFI Fest opens tonight in Hollywood with the world premiere of J.C. Chandor’s A Most Violent Year. The film stars Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain as a couple trying to run a business and live in New York City during 1981, which was statistically one of the city’s most violent years. This is Chandor’s first film to premiere in Los Angeles. Though the film is hoping to garner some Oscar nominations, only six of the past 14 films to open AFI Fest have gone on to receive Oscar nominations and none have been for best picture.

Of the six films to garner Oscar nominations, the only film to win an award was 2005’s Walk the Line, which resulted in Reese Witherspoon taking home the Oscar for best actress. The Johnny Cash biopic scored four other nominations, including film editing and best actor. »

Michelle Gomez on Doctor Who twist: 'Kissing Peter Capaldi was hell'

2 November 2014 5:51 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Michelle Gomez has joked that kissing Doctor Who co-star Peter Capaldi was like "hell on earth".

Doctor Who revealed during Saturday's (November 1) episode 'Dark Water' that Gomez's character Missy is, in fact, a female incarnation of evil Time Lord The Master.

The Master has a long history in Doctor Who dating back to the 1970s, when Roger Delgado first played The Doctor's scheming archenemy.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Gomez said that she greatly enjoyed reading fan speculation about Missy's true identity throughout the series.

"My favourite is that I've been likened to Mary Poppins," she declared. "But then of course I have to take that one stage further and say, 'Are we saying that Mary Poppins is the most evil woman in the universe?'

"The problem is that, with me dressed as Mary Poppins, with this face, it's just going to look a bit evil anyway."
