25 Hugely Popular Soundtracks That Somehow Never Hit No. 1

15 August 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Last week, I put some miles on my DeLorean Gif, traveling through the last 30 years checking out the soundtracks to hit No. 1 since the reign of Purple Rain. It got you guys talking! It got me Spotifying! So, for this week’s installment of Somewhere in Time, I’m following it up with a look at 25 other significant, hit-spawning soundtracks from the past 30 years that, for one reason or another, failed to make it to the top of the charts, even though it seemed like you and everyone you know listened to them all the time. (I’m also including, way at the end, two soundtracks that did hit number one but that I failed to include last time because I’m only human, guys.) We begin on a chilly Chicagoland Saturday morning in 1985 …The Breakfast Club (1985)  Synopsis: Troubled kids smoke pot in detention, somehow avoid panic attacks.  Monster hit: »

‘Soulmate’ DVD Review

8 August 2014 5:31 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Anna Walton, Tom Wisdom, Tanya Myers, Nick Brimble, Emma Cleasby | Written and Directed by Axelle Carolyn

[Note: This review is of the full Uncut version of Soulmate shown at last years Frightfest Halloween All-Nighter, which is not the version being released on DVD. The BBFC requested cuts to the opening suicide scene due to "imitable technique" and so director Axelle Carolyn excised the entire scene from the home entertainment release - hopefully that scene will be made available online at some point]

Actress Axelle Carolyn first turned her hand to directing with the well-received short The Last Post in 2011, she followed it up with the short The Halloween Kid, which screened as part of the International Short Film Showcase at Film4 Frightfest in August 2012. Soulmate, her feature directorial debut, stars Anna Walton (who previously worked with Carolyn on The Halloween Kid and will be a familiar face in to genre fans, having appeared in Hellboy 2 in 2008 and The Seasoning House in 2012) and sees a woman, Audrey, retreat to a remote country cottage after attempting to commit suicide due to the sudden death of her husband. But once settled in she soon discovers her safe haven is haunted by its previous owner, and this spirit has some startling links to the nearby local community, especially the strange Zellaby family. »

It Is Absolutely Time to Reexamine Last Week’s Top 40 Singles Chart

24 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It’s mid-summer, it’s very hot, and we need to conserve fuel. So for this installment of Somewhere in Time, I’m taking my Delorean Gif back exactly seven days, to the glorious week of July 14, 2014. What strange customs and trends will we encounter there? Slip into your colorful Bonobos pants and let’s find out, shall we?40. Lil Wayne/Drake, “Believe Me” Last week’s Top 40 kicks off with two of the biggest names in 2014 hip-hop, collaborating on a track that is structurally identical to “Top That” from the 1989 film Teen Witch. 39. Luke Bryan, “Play It Again” As mainstream hip-hop gets duller and rock gets more fragmented and less fun, country swooped in and became the arena music of the 21st century, and it did so by stealing the swagger of the former and restoring the joy of the latter. Country guys have the posture of Mama Said »

‘Predestination’ Trailer: Ethan Hawke Is Caught Somewhere in Time

21 July 2014 12:15 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

While the partnership between Ethan Hawke and Richard Linklater has led to some of the most satisfying films in recent art-house release, Hawke is also indulging his genre interests in many other pictures. In the recent past he’s done films like Sinister, Total Recall, The Purge and Daybreakers. Now he has reunited with Daybreakers filmmakers […]

Looking Back at Bobby Brown’s Ghostbusters II Theme and Other Summer Hits of 1989

14 July 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Twenty-five years ago today, the world was gifted with one of its greatest romantic comedies, as When Harry Met Sally opened in theaters. But what were moviegoers listening to as they drove their Pontiac Fieros to the cineplex to watch Billy Crystal meet Meg Ryan? This week’s installment of my Somewhere in Time column revisits the top 40 songs circa July 13, 1989, so hop in the DeLorean Gif and let’s get into it. I can promise a lot of unstructured sport-coats, an ozone hole full of hairspray, New Kids, electric youths, and Rod Stewart. You’ll have what Martika is having.40. Donna Summer, “This Time I Know It's for Real”I will begin this column with some hardcore grammar grumpery. This line has now officially bothered me for 25 years: “You’d be amazed how much I love you so.” How much I love you so?  Isn’t that basically: How »

Dave Holmes Visits 1988 to Pay Respect to Casey Kasem’s Last True American Top 40 Countdown

17 June 2014 7:10 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

On Sunday, we woke to the sad news that Casey Kasem had died at the age of 82. Though we knew he’d been sick for a long while, the news still stung, if only because we remember him sounding so young, so high-spirited. For this week’s installment of Somewhere in Time, I’m hopping in my trusty DeLorean Gif and heading back to August 6, 1988, for Casey’s last countdown at the helm of American Top 40. Along the way, voluminous rock hair, more sweaty tank-tops than you can shake a stick at, and a few memories of a life spent listening to Casey countin' 'em down. 40. Debbie Gibson, “Foolish Beat”Now, let me be clear: I am aware that Casey returned to the mike in 1998 and hosted a new version of American Top 40 before handing the reins to Ryan Seacrest in 2004, but this new version was based on charts from »

Let’s Revisit Ace of Base, Warren G, and Other Summer Songs From 1994

12 June 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

This next week marks the 20th anniversaries of The Lion King and the ubiquitously televised white Ford Bronco chase involving murder suspect O.J. Simpson. Both events seem like they could have happened just yesterday or, well, precisely 20 years ago. To find out how different that era really was compared to today, I’m using this installment of my Somewhere in Time column to set my DeLorean Gif on a crash course with the Billboard singles charts of June 1994. As we will soon discover together, it involves a few pumps, a few bumps, and at least one grind, all of which are perpetrated by then-jailbait Alicia Silverstone and Liv Tyler.40. John Mellencamp, “Wild Night” We did not deserve Me’Shell Ndegeocello. After she made waves with Plantation Lullabies and its viciously sexy first single “If That’s Your Boyfriend,” John Mellencamp gave her a leg up on this Van Morrison cover. »

Dave Holmes Revisits ‘U Can’t Touch This,’ ‘Poison,’ and Other 1990 Jams

5 June 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

I am impressed with both the title and the debut chart position (No. 3) of Mariah Carey’s latest album, Me … I Am Mariah … The Elusive Chanteuse, so I’d like to use this installment of Somewhere in Time to head back to June 12, 1990, when we were introduced to her chanteusey elusiveness. What was the pop-music landscape like when her debut album, Mariah Carey, was released? Pull out your biggest earrings, hike up your palest blue jeans to your navel, and join me in the DeLorean Gif, won’t you? Our tour will take us through the Top 40 songs of the week ending June 16, 1990, and it’s not over until a trio of differently sized ladies sing.40. Tommy Page, “When I Dream of You”Man, if you’re going to explore 1990, there is no better sound palette to start with than this one. That 808! That post–Kenny G »

Paying Respect to Rodney Dangerfield’s Novelty Song and Other 1984 Hits

29 May 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It’s No Respect Week here at Vulture, and in honor of this semi-august occasion, I’m taking my DeLorean Gif back to the week of January 28, 1984, the week Rodney Dangerfield hit his chart peak with the timeless single “Rappin’ Rodney” and its apropos "no respect" chorus. Join me for this installment of Somewhere in Time as I breeze through that week’s top 100 singles and tell you whether they get the respect they deserve or whether we need to do penance for 30 years of underrespecting. And in keeping with this week’s theme, we’ll be using the top 100 chart from Cashbox, Billboard magazine’s ugly, defunct, but still lovable cousin.100. Air Supply, “Making Love Out of Nothing at All”The song at No. 100 by definition gets the least respect on this whole list, and 30 years after this song’s run, Air Supply gets even less; they’re routinely »

Dave Holmes Revisits ‘Closing Time,’ ‘Sex and Candy,’ and Other May 1998 Hits

19 May 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It’s mid-May, a Clinton is being debated in the news, and a Godzilla reboot is in theaters. For this week’s installment of my Somewhere in Time column, we’re hopping in my DeLorean Gif and traveling back to the last time we were able to say those three things in a row: May 1998, where it’s all about the top 20 singles on Billboard’s Modern Rock chart. I think you will agree the lineup of songs on that chart is a murderers’ row — you know, like (cross-promotion alert!) the trivia questions I posed to cast members from Orange Is the New Black, New Girl, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine during the big event I hosted two weekends ago at the inaugural Vulture Festival. 20. God Lives Underwater, “From Your Mouth” As a radio format, “modern rock” was right smack in the middle of its awkward adolescence in 1998. It was past its promising post-Nirvana youth, »

Dave Holmes Looks Back at the Fetch Hits of Summer 1986, When Lindsay Lohan Arrived in the World

30 April 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Mean Girls was released ten years ago today, which is a thing that should make us all feel very, very old. And sure, I could get into my DeLorean Gif and fly back to that week in pop-music history, but I’ve already done hard time in 2004 for an earlier installment of my Somewhere in Time column, and I just don’t have a second thing to say about Usher’s “Yeah!” Instead, let’s head back to July 2, 1986, and check out what Billboard’s Top 40 songs were the week a couple of scrappy young dreamers named Dina and Michael Lohan welcomed a daughter named Lindsay into the world. Hey, anybody know what happened to those three guys?40. Steve Winwood, “Higher Love” There are so, so many middle-aged white guys on this chart. That’s who we supported, us record-buying teenagers of the ’80s, because we had no other choice. »

Dave Holmes Flashes Back to the Insane, Riveting Battle of the Network Stars

18 April 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

We are coming up on another Coachella weekend and, even though I’m not going, my ringing ears need a break. So for this week’s installment of Somewhere in Time, we’re going to take a little day trip in my Delorean Gif in the opposite direction. If you were alive in the 1970s and 1980s, and if you were raised by a television set as I was, you have fond memories of the biannual TV extravaganza event Battle of the Network Stars, in which your favorite personalities from ABC, CBS, and NBC would show off their athleticism (by which I mean their thighs and chests). It was an all-out war for bragging rights (and actual money — each player for the winning team would win $20,000 for themselves and not for charity), and I don’t think there’s anything I miss more. So guess what: On Monday nights, Espn »

Dave Holmes Returns to 1995 to Count Down Waterworld-Era Music Videos

11 April 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Each week, through my Somewhere in Time column, I hop in my DeLorean Gif and travel back to a moment in our pop-culture past to reevaluate just what we as a nation thought was good. This time out, we use Kevin Costner’s Draft Day as an excuse to take a jaunt back to July 28, 1995 to survey the landscape circa the project that you and I both know was his creative peak. (Talk to me when you have your own stunt spectacular at Universal Studios Hollywood, Dances With Wolves.) Let's count down the top ten music videos of Waterworld premiere week, according to VH1. Why VH1? Because you just know Costner was a VH1 kind of guy.10. Blessid Union of Souls, “I Believe” I hate to start the countdown off this way, I really do.

Dave Holmes Travels Back to 2005 and Charts a Legendary Top 40

5 April 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Each week, through my Somewhere in Time column, I hop in my Gif-y DeLorean and travel back to a moment in our pop-culture past to reevaluate just what we as a nation thought was good. This time out, our course is charted for September 9, 2005, the week that How I Met Your Mother debuted. Yes, we've already reached the acceptance stage of How I Met Your Mother grief in the wake of the tragic, last-season-dismissing final episode, and we're just a few months away from the spinoff that CBS has hastily retitled How I Met Your Father Who Is in the Next Room and Is Perfectly Healthy — Why Do You Ask? But I’ll argue that we can’t truly achieve Himym closure until ... we sift through the Billboard top 40 chart at when Ted, Barney, et al., entered our worlds.

Dave Holmes Returns to 1992, When Kris Kross’s ‘Jump’ Ruled the Charts

23 March 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Each week, through my “Somewhere in Time” column, I hop in my GIFfy DeLorean and travel back to a moment in our pop-culture past to reevaluate just what we as a nation thought was good. Inspired by the Reality Rumble going on at Vulture, I set a course for May 21, 1992, when seven strangers stopped being polite and started being real, and in the process ushered in an entire industry. Life before reality television was a profoundly different one than after MTV uncorked The Real World, and the top 40 pop songs from that week sound like a transmission from another dimension all these years later. Let’s go through them together, shall we?40. Atlantic Starr, “Masterpiece”The ’80s really did a number on a lot of ’70s bands. Heart and Aerosmith turned into faceless corporate hitmakers. Robert Plant gave us the Honeydrippers and “Tall Cool One.” And funk stalwarts Atlantic Starr »

Dave Holmes Flashes Back to the Glorious March 1999 Singles Chart

7 March 2014 9:15 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Each week, through my Somewhere In Time column, I hop in my DeLorean Gif to a moment in our pop-culture past to reevaluate just what we as a nation thought was good. This week I travel back fifteen years and flip on the radio: Though the cover of Billboard's March 6, 1999 issue trumpeted a rock resurgence (led by standard-bearers the Flys and Everlast), the rest of the magazine was all pop. We were in the spring of the Boy Band Moment, we were post-grunge and pre-Y2K, and we were wearing bucket hats. Join me as I jump into my DeLorean Gif and head back to that glorious week to check out the top 40 songs on the pop singles chart. 40. The Offspring, "Pretty Fly for a White Guy"If you’re looking for the moment when the Offspring just gave up and turned into the Dead Milkmen, you will find »

Could You Travel Through Time Like They Do in Movies?

5 March 2014 11:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Time travel stories are one of the most polarizing things for film fans. They either love them, or they turn their noses up at them. Still, that doesn’t stop writers from coming up with them, and it’s not even for the science fiction fields. Time travel stories have an unexpectedly strong placement in romance fiction as well, such as The Time Traveler’s Wife or the upcoming Starz series Outlander, based on Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling historical romance series. While many of these romance-driven stories – like Somewhere in Time and more recently Richard Curtis’s About Time – are not concerned with the greater implications of meddling with the space-time continuum, the science fiction movies are. Traveling through time has been a central figure in stories for years, often presenting the viewer with a crash course in theoretical physics and opening themselves up to plot holes almost impossible to close.

New DVD Blu-ray: '12 Years a Slave,' 'Catching Fire,' 'An American Tail'

4 March 2014 8:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week

"12 Years a Slave"

What's It About? Based on the memoir by Solomon Northup, "12 Years a Slave" stars Chiwetel Ejiofor as a free man who was kidnapped from his home in New York and sold into slavery. Northup ends up on a plantation run by the cruel Edwin Epps (Michael Fassbender) and his equally awful wife (Sarah Paulson), who take special delight in tormenting another young slave named Patsey (Lupita Nyong'o).

Why We're In: The movie took him Best Picture Sunday night -- see director Steve McQueen quite literally jump for joy here -- for good reason. Nyong'o took home the Best Supporting Actress award for her wrenching performance, and John Ridley won for his adapted screenplay.

Oscars 2014: Bette Midler lends a mighty 'In Memoriam' assist

2 March 2014 8:55 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The annual "In Memoriam" segment honoring recently deceased talents had extra emotional punch at Sunday's 86th Academy Awards, for several reasons.

Introduced by Glenn Close, the tribute was bound to have impact through its spotlighting of unexpected deaths during the past year, such as those of "Capote" Oscar winner Philip Seymour Hoffman and "The Fast and the Furious" franchise star Paul Walker.

Presented without the audience applause that sometimes accompanies mentions of particularly beloved talents, the segment was set to John Barry's memorable theme music from "Somewhere in Time." That was an especially meaningful choice, since veteran fantasy writer Richard Matheson -- who died last June, and was included in the salute -- adapted that film's screenplay from his novel "Bid Time Return."

Stylized photos of the late actors, directors, writers, musicians and other craftspeople often were accompanied by clips of their work, as with Peter O'Toole ("Lawrence of Arabia »
