UConn Women’s Basketball Team Wins 100 Straight! It’s Been 821 Days Since the Huskies Lost

14 February 2017 6:02 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

This story originally appeared on Si.com.

Three weeks before the start of this year’s women’s college basketball season, UConn coach Geno Auriemma sat in his office contemplating the prospect of finishing this year without a loss. He considered the suggestion laughable, preposterous, pick your own adjective to describe such crazy.

“To think we will go undefeated this year, we would be setting ourselves up for failure,” Auriemma said. “Stewie , Moriah Jefferson and Tuck were 151-5 in their career. That’s not the real world. How long do you think you can live that world? I don’t »

Mel Brooks Meets Prince William: ‘Comedy’s Job Is to Say the Truth in the King’s Ear’

13 February 2017 9:09 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Mel Brooks has revealed his greatest comedy secret – and it’s surprisingly royal.

“Comedy’s job is to say the truth in the king’s ear,” the 90-year-old comic told People at the BAFTA awards in London on Sunday. “I think comedy is too PC.”

Brooks made no mention about whether he did just that to real-life future king (and academy president) Prince William when collecting a BAFTA Fellowship from the royal dad, who attended the ceremony alongside wife Princess Kate.

Yet the experience of meeting the second-in-line still left something of a mark on the man behind such comedy classics as Blazing Saddles, »

6 Black And White Movies That Should Never Be Colorized

7 February 2017 8:43 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“Is it black and white?” At some point, every kid will ask that question, and when it’s geared towards you, you won’t want to answer it. Why? Because chances are the movie in question is a great flick, one that you’re dying to watch, and by answering ‘yes,’ you’re afraid that its credibility will lessen. And that’s a terrible feeling.

What younger audiences always forget is that film started out black and white, and without that “prehistoric” technology, the glossy, explosion-filled action eye-candy they adore would never happen. Black and white films are a powerful art form in themselves, not just a stage before glorious Technicolor. They can emphasize theme, capture feeling and represent an idea (among other uses). Over the years, some directors have opted to make their movie monochromatic even though color was an option; the choice is not always only artistic, sometimes, »

Richard Portman, ‘Star Wars’ Sound Engineer and 11-Time Oscar Nominee, Dies at 82

31 January 2017 11:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sound engineer Richard Portman, who received 11 Academy Award nominations and won for his work on Michael Cimino’s “The Deer Hunter,” died on Saturday at his home in Tallahassee, Fla. He was 82.

“He was an icon of his craft of motion picture sound re-recording, recognized with the highest honors of his field,” his daughter Jennifer Portman wrote on her Facebook page. “He was eccentric, irreverent, and real.”

Portman worked on nearly 200 movies and mixed the sound for George Lucas’ “Star Wars.”

Portman received two Oscar sound nominations in 1973 for Francis Ford Coppola’s “The Godfather” and Michael Ritchie’s “The Candidate.” He was also double-nominated in 1974 for Peter Bogdanovich’s “Paper Moon” and Mike Nichols’ “The Day of the Dolphin.”

Portman received his first nom in 1971 for “Kotch,” directed by Jack Lemmon. He was also up for Oscars for Mel Brooks’ “Young Frankenstein,” Herbert Ross’ “Funny Lady,” Michael Apted’s “Coal Miner’s Daughter, »

Fantasy Fridays: Scully & Mfr Cast The Universal Monsters (Frankenstein, Dracula, Wolf Man, More!)

27 January 2017 10:30 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to another edition of Fantasy Fridays, where two real-life best friends get to play studio execs and cast talent for upcoming projects. We sort of take the same tact as the old Wizard Magazine features where we choose our dream picks for coveted roles without necessarily being tied down to realistic options. 

With the case of Universal's upcoming Cinematic Universe of Classic Monsters, we thankfully have a very wide palette to choose from since the studio has already secured some surprisingly high-profile talent. So that actually takes some of the "pie in the sky/fantasy" nature out of our picks, since it seems like they're able to get who ever they want to appear in these films.

So far, we've got The Mummy with stars like Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe. Then there's Johnny Depp, who's signed on for The Invisible Man. The sky's the limit for these monster flicks, »
