'The Advocate' ranks the best films for Lgbt viewers

24 June 2014 8:47 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Yesterday, Lgbt news outlet The Advocate put together a list of “The Top 175 Essential Films of All Time for Lgbt Viewers.” The exhaustive list is full of game-changing films with Lgbt characters, many of which have important places in pop culture. But it’s also rounded out with campy cult classics and gender-bending movies that don’t necessarily have Lgbt characters. Some Like it Hot, for instance, was a groundbreaking movie with no gay characters but plenty of cross-dressing.

The list is topped with more recent movies—Brokeback Mountain (2005) caps it at No. 1, with Milk (2008) coming in second—but contains movies from all time periods. »

Review: Jack White's invigorating new album, 'Lazaretto'

9 June 2014 11:23 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

With his second solo album, “Lazaretto,” out Tuesday (10), Jack White continues on his exploration of American music. For all his talk of condemning others for being musical magpies, he proves to be quite one himself on the set:  Whether he’s recalling Howling Wolf or The Band or even Lynyrd Skynrd, it’s easy to trace the new creation back to its musical forbearers. Where White’s true talent lies is that he’s able to assimilate so many different styles into his music. “Lazaretto” works also most as two different albums: there are the gentle country-influenced acoustic tracks and the feral, primal, razor-edged electric tunes and he sells both of them with equal conviction. For the most part, both tread the same lyrical band: a sense of isolation that, in some cases, quietly creeps in and other times, announces its arrival with unrestrained howls. As acclaimed a guitarist as White is, »

The Other Woman | Review

26 April 2014 12:05 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Birds of a Feather: Cassavetes’ Brings Generic Chops to Predictable Comedy

Long before the inevitable denouement of the vainglorious adulterer catalyzing the female frenzied revenge fantasy that is The Other Woman, one will quickly apprehend the fact that it’s not nearly as daringly mature as it would have you think. Sort of like a younger generation’s version of The First Wives Club (1996), time has not advanced the realism of adult sexual discourse in mainstream film, the ritual of appeasing the conservative censorship of the MPAA still bound tightly to the promise of an adolescent profit margin. In a bid to secure a wholly unnecessary PG-13 rating, there’s a trade off as we lose Cameron Diaz’s sole use of the F word (seemingly changed to something like ‘flipping’ in post-production) for its sexual insinuations that can never quite be discussed in frank, real world terms.

That Was Gay: ‘The Birdcage’

20 April 2014 9:42 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

When Mike Nichols’s The Birdcage was released in 1996, it made $185 million worldwide, a truly astonishing fact. There are so many reasons why The Birdcage would never ever be made today, let alone make so much money. We’re talking about an R-rated comedy with no gross-out or potty humor.  It isn’t a buddy comedy or an action comedy or even a particularly romantic comedy. Its four main characters are quite a bit over the age of 40. Dianne Wiest has an above-the-title credit, for God’s sakes. This is a film geared towards just about every audience but the young straight men Hollywood targets with its comedies today.

Of course The Birdcage is a gay movie. Its leading couple is gay, the plot hinges on a gay secret, and there’s lots of drag and swishing and short shorts.  There’s no actual sex, or even too many sexual allusions, »

After several of the principal figures suffer grisly deaths, Lavardin (Jean Poiret, La Cage aux Folles) arrives to get to the bottom of it all.

Bravo's Andy Cohen Wants to Know Shaq's Penis Size: Will He Plead the Fifth? (Video)

Over the years, Shaquille O'Neal has built a reputation for being brazen and fearless. So, when the legendary basketball player appeared on Bravo's “Watch What Happens Live” on Thursday, he was resolved not to take an out on quiz game “Plead the Fifth.” Host Andy Cohen certainly tried, but Shaq was unyielding. Cohen asked him to say three nice things about former teammate and frequent rival Kobe Bryant. And he delivered after a pause.

Roger Allam, actor – portrait of the artist

12 March 2014 5:37 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

'My beloved helped me shave my entire body once a week with a beard trimmer'

What first drew you to acting?

I went to this very odd school, Christ's Hospital – like Eton for poor boys. I remember seeing a school production of The Birthday Party and finding its environment strangely menacing and hostile, rather like school. Then I saw Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead at the Old Vic, and found it adult and thrilling. That's what really caught me.

What was your big breakthrough?

I don't think I've ever had one.

You've had parts in musicals, TV and film. Should an actor always be open to new things?

Yes. There's a particularly British way of going about things that I rather like, which is very different to the American way. It comes out of the amateur rep tradition of actors thinking: "Well, I'm only 26, but I'll put on a »

One of Top Stars of Hollywood's Studio Era and Later on a pro-Vietnam War, 'Conservative' Republican, Has Died

Shirley Temple dead at 85: Was one of the biggest domestic box office draws of the ’30s (photo: Shirley Temple in the late ’40s) Shirley Temple, one of the biggest box office draws of the 1930s in the United States, died Monday night, February 10, 2014, at her home in Woodside, near San Francisco. The cause of death wasn’t made public. Shirley Temple (born in Santa Monica on April 23, 1928) was 85. Shirley Temple became a star in 1934, following the release of Paramount’s Alexander Hall-directed comedy-tearjerker Little Miss Marker, in which Temple had the title role as a little girl who, left in the care of bookies, almost loses her childlike ways before coming around to regenerate Adolphe Menjou and his gang. That same year, Temple became a Fox contract player, and is credited with saving the studio — 20th Century Fox from 1935 on — from bankruptcy. Whether or not that’s true is a different story, »
