Besides Nicholas Kallsen and Brad Pitt, the show also featured Spike Alexander and Evan Mirand.

Michelle Obama Stuns Again in a Purple Tadashi Shoji Gown at White House State Dinner—Take a Look!

29 April 2015 9:35 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Fresh off the (silver) heels of yesterday's chic Monique Lhuillier ensemble, Michelle Obama is wowing again—but this time in a solid hue. The first lady stepped out for the White House State Dinner in a floor-sweeping, violet gown from Japanese-born designer Tadashi Shoji, which featured an airy tulle skirt and ruched bodice with lace detailing. The look showcased Flotus' famously trim arms, while her loose, unfussy updo was an easy-chic way to complement those diamond cluster earrings. President Barack Obama looked dapper himself at the event, which was also attended by Ciara and her beau Russell Wilson, former Star Trek actor and Japanese American activist George Takei as well as television »

25 underrated 1990s movie soundtracks

28 April 2015 3:02 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Muppet Treasure Island to Speed, we take a look at the 90s soundtracks that deserve another listen...

Ah, the 1990s. The decade that brought us The Lion King. Titanic. Quentin Tarantino. That wordless bathroom scene in Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet. Angelo Badalamenti's Twin Peaks. Duel of the Fates from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. In the Mood for Love.

It was a good 10 years for film music, no doubt.

But scratch the surface of 1991 through 1999 and there are tons of good scores ready to spring a surprise on your ears. Some were attached to sorely underrated movies, others were overshadowed by wildly successful ones, and some have simply been forgotten in the passage of time.

Here, in no particular order, are the top 25 underappreciated film soundtracks from the 1990s.

1. Chaplin - John Barry

Okay, let's start with a big one. Richard Attenborough. Robert Downey Jr. John Barry. »

Why 1998 Was the Best Year In Film History

27 April 2015 12:46 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Check here for a complete list of our essays. Just one glance at the Oscar nominees for 1998 might make it seem less a questionable choice for “best year in film” — and more an insane one.   Instead of a 1974 – The Godfather II, The Conversation, Chinatown, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, etc – or even a 1994, where Shawshank, Quiz Show, and Pulp Fiction lost to Gump – you choose a year where the Oscars would allow Roberto Benigni to climb atop both the figurative and literal chairs of the Shrine?   Fine, step away from the Oscars. Would you still celebrate a year that saw not one, but two movies about asteroids threatening the Earth?  A year that saw such scars carved across cinematic history as Patch Adams, My Giant, Stepmom, and Krippendorf’s Tribe?   It bears repeating: Krippendorf’S Tribe? »

William Shatner's 'feud' with Carrie Fisher spilled over into his reaction to 'Force Awakens'

17 April 2015 9:34 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Carrie Fisher and William Shatner’s on-going feud has been well documented for years. The tongue-in-cheek rivalry began back in 2011 when William Shatner publicly declared Star Trek the superior universe. Carrie returned fire and the rest is history. So of course Captain Kirk would take a couple of loving pot-shots at Princes Leia when the new trailer for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” was revealed at Star Wars Celebration. It’d have been stranger if he hadn’t! I heard Star Wars Celebration is happening. If Fisher is there tell her that her Nemesis sends his love. — William Shatner (@WilliamShatner) April 16, 2015 I see the rebel alliance slept in today and the Federation had to step in. #slackerrebels https://t.co/dri7Nbn8X5 — William Shatner (@WilliamShatner) April 16, 2015   Via Twitter Oh and what was with that Han Solo line at the end?
