'Cooley High' Is the Most Influential Movie You've Never Seen

25 June 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Cooley High" ought to be remembered as a cinema milestone, and its writer and director remembered as pioneers.

Released 40 years ago this week (on June 25, 1975), it ought to be celebrated for its vast influence on movies, TV, and music. As a young-men-coming-of-age movie, it deserves to be mentioned alongside Fellini's "I Vitelloni," George Lucas's "American Graffiti," Barry Levinson's "Diner," and John Singleton's "Boyz N the Hood." And yet, the film and its creators have been largely forgotten, lost to history.

The story behind "Cooley High" is even more dramatic than the comedy-drama that unspooled on the screen. It's the story of Kenneth Williams, who, like protagonist Preach, left Chicago's Cabrini-Green projects with dreams of becoming a Hollywood screenwriter. Having dropped out of high school, he hitchhiked from the Windy City to Hollywood with $5 in his pocket and no connections, and for a while he supported himself selling drugs. »

‘Good Times’ movie in development from ‘Black-ish’ creator

27 April 2015 1:15 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While Netflix has been in the habit of reviving old TV icons, Hollywood is no stranger to getting in on the nostalgia. And if you’re going to be digging up any old property, the socially relevant and racially poignant comedy of Norman Lear’s Good Times is a strong place to start.

A Good Times movie is currently in development from the creator of ABC’s African American spin on Modern Family, Black-ish, Kenya Barris. Deadline reports that the feature adaptation of the show, which ran on CBS between 1974 to 1979, is being set up at Sony and will be a period piece set in the ’60s.

Good Times was a spin-off of Maude, itself a spin-off of All in the Family, and was the story of a family of African Americans living in a poor, black neighborhood and housing project and how they still managed to have “good times »

'Mad Men' creator Matthew Weiner: 'I feel a sense of accomplishment'

27 March 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Matthew Weiner has always been more comfortable talking about the past of “Mad Men” rather than letting anyone know anything about the future — even when that future is only seven episodes long, starting Sunday, April 5 at 10 p.m. Having spent enough time over the years asking Weiner questions that he responded to with a very guarded, “Well, you’ve got to watch,” I knew enough to focus as much on the past as possible when we recently sat down for an hour-long interview to discuss the end of his Emmy-winning baby. We talked about the last days of production, looked back all the way to the show’s origins when Weiner was a staff writer on “Becker” looking for a different kind of career in television, the show’s long acting Emmy drought, and more. And I made it almost to the end without a single “You’ve got to watch. »

Norman Lear on an All in the Family Reboot, Memories of Maude, and TV Today

24 March 2015 9:36 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Norman Lear was a celebrity producer of television sitcoms decades before the current era of superstar showrunners dawned. His string of Nielsen hits during the early- to mid-1970s — All in the Family, The Jeffersons, Sanford and Son, One Day at a Time, and Maude — made him one of Hollywood’s most powerful creatives. At one point in 1976, nine shows produced under the Lear name were on TV.  But beyond his ratings success, Lear became an icon as much (and perhaps more) because of the kinds of comedies he made. His were shows that “employed the power of humor in the service of human understanding,” as President Bill Clinton put it when presenting the producer with the National Medal of Arts in 1999. “He held up a mirror to American society and changed the way we look at it.” While Lear, now 92, hasn’t produced new TV shows in »

Stop in the Name of Love: Top Ten Forbidden Romances in the Movies

13 March 2015 6:12 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Human beings and their affectionate vibes are something special. After all, we as individuals are going to love who we feel are worth loving. However, society demands that the protocol of loving should be straight-forward and “natural”. The rule of thumb: stick to your own kind! Whether it is being loyal to your own kind racially or culturally or either with your own age range the expectation of romance is defined…do not make waves and keep things safe and mainstream!

Well, human beings can be also unpredictable and live for going against the grain especially certain characters and personalities in the movies. Love and romance make for great film fodder but when the notion of such on-screen amorous activities takes its theme to a whole new challenging level then the gloves are off!

First New Scandal Photos Invite the Question: Olivia's Gone How Long?!

21 January 2015 6:34 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Scandal resumes Season 4 on Thursday, Jan. 29 — yet ABC has not released any photos from that winter premiere. Instead, the first photos are from the following episode, airing Feb. 5, and the news is grim: Olivia apparently still is missing.

For one, the episode is titled, “Where’s the Black Lady?” — words, I will predict, that come out of the mouth of Opa visitor Marla Gibbs (The Jeffersons). Secondly, the synopsis reads, “With Olivia still missing, the team comes together to do whatever it takes to find her and get her home safely.”
