"Weird" Al Yankovic performs "The Ballad of Homer and Marge" Oh my god, he's famous again. Yeardley Smith and Nancy Cartwright perform "Minimum Wage Nanny" Still the definitive Mary Poppins parody.

13 September 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Miss Ohio is no dummy. But her performance partner, Roxy? That's an entirely different story.

Listen To Pee-Wee Herman As The Voice Of Roger Rabbit

11 September 2014 9:34 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In 1983, the Walt Disney Company embarked on a film that would push the boundaries of animation and live-action collaboration to an extent that had never been seen before. While it was a post Gene Kelly/Jerry Mouse world, the animators behind Who Framed Roger Rabbit wanted to do better than just showcase a limited song-and-dance number. They'd already blazed that trail with Mary Poppins several years before. That sort of retread just wouldn't cut it. That much is clear in the long lost special Backstage At Disney, which aired on The Disney Channel, and has been partially resurrected in the above YouTube edit (acquired by Yahoo Movies). In this video, we see a lot of early concept work being done on the Disney adaptation of Who Censored Roger Rabbit, which was changed to Who Framed Roger Rabbit when Disney started work on the film.

16 hidden treats found waiting for you in movie credits

11 September 2014 1:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Some films keep entertaining us even as the final credits roll. Here are some hidden treats at the end of 16 movies...

We've talked in the past about the current trend for stings at the end of movie credits - we once put together a list of 50 of our favourites. But that's not what this article is about. Instead, inspired by a quite wonderful scene midway through the credits of The Boxtrolls, we've been hunting around for extra goodies that you may have missed in other films. Some of these are just lines of text, others are far more substantial. But also, none of them are new or extended scenes - at least in the strictest sense.

There are inevitable spoilers for one or two things ahead, but we've tried to keep the headers as spoiler-free as possible so you can skip to the next entry if you want to. Let's start with The Boxtrolls, »

Musicals at the Oscars

10 September 2014 1:35 PM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

The Academy has a long and complex relationship with musicals, particularly with their ability to secure best picture nominations. The best picture nomination for Les Miserables (2012) at the 85th Academy Awards marked the first time since Chicago’s (2002) nomination and win that a musical was nominated in that category, and as of this moment, there aren’t many options that could break into the category this year.

Since premiering at Toronto, The Last 5 Years — the film adaption of the off-broadway musical written by Jason Robert Brown — has been receiving decent reviews but nothing that would propel it to best picture status. The Hollywood Reporter’s David Rooney said both Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan bring “confidence and depth of feeling” to their songs and “shift back and forth between rom-com breeziness and full-blown passion, be it the soaring highs or the heartsick lows” with ease, »

Craig Johnson’s Top Ten Films of All Time List

7 September 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Have you ever wondered what are the films that inspire the next generation of visionary filmmakers? As part of our monthly Ioncinephile profile (read this September), we ask the filmmaker the incredibly arduous task of identifying their top ten list of favorite films. Craig Johnson (who sees his The Skeleton Twins receive its theatrical release on September 12th) put together this top 10 (as of September 2014).

Carrie - Brian De Palma (1976)

“Freaky, funny, arty, beautiful, … and fucking scary. Sissy Spacek breaks your heart. And that seventies split screen action? Badass. This movie delivers on all levels at all times.”

ElectionAlexander Payne (1999)

“Every moment of this movie rings true. Painfully funny, painfully smart and so perfectly constructed. My sister and I quote it whenever we see each other. Might be a perfect film.”

The GraduateMike Nichols (1967)

“The look on Mrs. Robinson’s face when Benjamin leaves her in the hallway. »

Guidance | 2014 Tiff Review

5 September 2014 5:00 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Life Coach: Mills’ Debut a Showcase for Own Multi-talents

Toronto based filmmaker Pat Mills makes his directorial debut with Guidance, a dark hearted comedy that gets a lot of traction from exaggerated, inappropriate behavior draping its endearing core. Aping the hook of Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star (2003), Mills manages to surpass David Spade’s limitations with a basic premise that has a myriad of possibilities, and, as far as comedies hinged on adults behaving badly goes, Mills’ film works on a variety of entertaining levels. Director, screenwriter, and star, his strongest asset happens to be himself in an entertaining performance that is as unabashedly off-putting as it is strangely empathetic. His onscreen persona manages to help us overlook some of the film’s minor sleights to the development of supporting characters necessary for the attempted third act pathos. Nevertheless, this is an impressionable first feature, one deserving of attention as »

170 Days until Oscars: Brody & Dreyfuss

5 September 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

170 is the amount of days by which Adrien Brody (The Pianist) narrowly defeated Richard Dreyfuss (The Goodbye Girl) to become the Youngest Best Actor winner ever. Do you think both of them deserved their wins?

Adrien Brody (29) and Richard Dreyfus (30) are the 2 youngest Lead Actor winners

1977 Best Actor 2002 Best Actor Woody Allen, Annie Hall Adrien Brody, The Pianist Richard Burton, Equus Nicolas Cage, Adaptation Richard Dreyfus, The Goodbye Girl Michael Caine, The Quiet American Marcelo Mastroianni, A Special Day Daniel Day Lewis, Gangs of New York John Travolta, Saturday Night Fever Jack Nicholson, About Schmidt

 

The most hilarious thing about this statistic is that Adrien Brody is both the youngest Best Actor winner at 29 And the only twentysomething winner. Meanwhile "29" is actually the most common age to win Best Actress. These eight women all accomplished it and none of them were anywhere close to making a "youngest" list.

Doctor Who Series 8: Who Exactly is Missy?

3 September 2014 10:44 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Villordsutch wonders who exactly Missy is in series 8 of Doctor Who….

Missy

Within series 8 of Doctor Who a recurring character has appeared, already giving this season its first obvious story-arc, and I am cautious to use the word “menacing” as anybody that serves tea and cake in my book isn’t high on the evil scale.  The character in question has given herself the moniker of Missy (played by Michelle Gomez) and as yet we know not one thing about her except she claims to be the boyfriend of the Doctor. That and she likes to bring a select chosen few – who have fallen near the Doctor – to the Promised Land/Heaven.

Tardis

The Rani

 

Being a Doctor Who fan of old I have my own theories of who Missy could be.  My bets are the Tardis itself from the Doctor’s Wife, who is in the process of removing »

9 fan theories on Doctor Who's new big mystery: Who is Missy?

30 August 2014 12:15 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Nothing gets the Doctor Who community into a frenzy quite like a mysterious new character. And there hasn't been a mysterious character quite like Michelle Gomez's Missy - the Gatekeeper of the Nethersphere.

The demented Mary Poppins-esque umbrella twizzler, who we've seen briefly in both of Peter Capaldi's episodes, clearly has a key role to play throughout the new series (and possibly beyond). But at the moment, it's unclear, who she is, where she is and what she's after.

Where do you go when you need a Doctor Who fan theory? The Digital Spy forums, obviously. Here are 9 lines of thought on Missy that are doing the rounds...

1. Missy is the...Tardis

John T Baptist: "A physical aspect of the Tardis was played by Suranne Jones in a previous episode, it doesn't mean it's going to keep the same appearance later on."

Doctor Who complete reviews: Deep breath

29 August 2014 6:48 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

2014. After the celebratory shenanigans of 2013, this year so far has been something of a head-scratching enigma in the land of Doctor Who. Whereas 2013's Psychic Paper showed up a balloon-doffing, missing episode recovering party animal, 2014's Psychic Paper draws a blank. The endless Missing Episode Omnishambles trudges wearily on, a bleary, pointless mess of internal politics, bickering and question dodging worthy of Chancellor Goth. Brand new episodes mysteriously leak online, prompting the question as to how it was so easy to shove them into the public domain in the first place. Even The Underwater Menace DVD has seemingly sunk without trace – look at that, I'm pining for The Underwater Menace, so obviously these are murky times.

Not even a brand new Doctor Who series can put paid to this unsure fog. Deep Breath is the first bid for new Doctor Peter Capaldi, who may be the 12th Doctor. Or the 13th. »

A Helpful Guide to How ‘The Simpsons’ Movie Parodies Have Changed Over 25 Years

28 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

There’s another five days left in Fxx’s great rerunning of every episode of The Simpsons in recorded history. Now, we don’t want to distract you — there’s still at least 100 hours to go, and shifting your eyes away from the TV for any reason could ruin that perfect butt-shaped indent that’s this close to being a permanent part of the couch — but just in case you need a break (a break that still involves The Simpsons, of course, we’re not monsters), here’s a momentary distraction. We all know the myriad of reasons why The Simpsons remains so popular. Revolutionize this, landmark that, longest-running yadda yadda yadda and so forth. But an exemplary trait of The Simpsons that tends to get short shrift (or shorter shrift, anyway), is its relationship with cinema. The Simpsons overflows with a love for film. Little homages to the classics. Grand »

Hello Kitty Revealed Not To Be A Cat and Apparently Nothing Is True Anymore

Well, this is just totally ridiculous.

Well, this is just totally ridiculous.

University of Hawaii anthropologist Christine R. Yano, who is curating a Hello Kitty Exhibit at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles, revealed to the La Times that Sanrio, the company responsible for Hello Kitty, informed her that this cartoon cat-like creature:

Is Not A Cat.

"That's one correction Sanrio made for my script for the show," said Yano. "Hello Kitty is not a cat. She's a cartoon character. She is a little girl. She is a friend. But she is not a cat. She's never depicted on all fours. She walks and sits like a two-legged creature. She does have a pet cat of her own, however, and it's called Charmmy Kitty."

Okay, Backup. Hello Kitty is not a cat, she's a little British girl named Kitty White, and she Has »

'Sopranos' Creator Finally Reveals Whether Tony Died in the Finale

27 August 2014 2:47 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Seven years later, we finally have an answer!

That took a while!

Seven years after The Sopranos finale, creator and Executive Producer David Chase finally put to rest the debate over whether Tony Soprano lives or dies, according to Vox.com's Martha P. Nochimson.

"I had been talking with Chase for a few years when I finally asked him whether Tony was dead... He shook his head 'no.' And he said simply, 'No he isn't.'"

News: This Mary Poppins Theory Will Blow Your Mind

Well, there you have it! The burning question that divided Soprano's diehards for nearly a decade is now answered. I guess we are... satisfied?

If you want to relieve the magical finale scene, or just get Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" stuck in your head, watch it below.

On a serious note, James Gandolfini, the actor famous for playing Tony Soprano, passed away last year. We spoke to »
