The Fifth Element Heads Back To Theaters With Valerian Preview

8 April 2017 11:56 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

My how time flies. Twenty years ago, it was about a year since I had moved out on my own for the first time. There was a great movie theater in Grand Rapids, Studio 28, that showed all kinds of movies, from the blockbusters to quirky little independent pieces. One film I saw was from Luc Besson, a weird little sci-fi movie called The Fifth Element. Visually, the film was unlike anything I had seen. It was almost as if space aliens went to Hollywood and gave them a film for us humans to enjoy. Plus, it introduced the world to Milla Jovovich.

And is that really a bad thing?

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that folks are going to get a chance to see The Fifth Element in theaters again this summer thanks to Fathom Events and Sony Pictures. It will have a 4K restoration which will liven up an already beautiful film. »

The Story Behind Cameron Crowe’s Fast Times at Ridgemont High is Surprising

5 April 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

As many of you may or may not know, the movie Almost Famous was autobiographical.  Turns out that its director, Cameron Crowe, started his journalistic work at the age of 13, graduated high school by the age of 15, and was in fact working with Lester Bangs and Ben-Fong Torres of Rolling Stone.   While the band “Stillwater” from the movie is fictional, many of the accounts from that movie are based loosely on Crowe’s real experiences.   I bring this up because another one of Cameron Crowe’s famous films, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, is also based loosely on Crowe’s real

Jennifer Jason Leigh Retrospective Includes Films From the Coen Brothers, Cronenberg, Verhoeven, and the Woman Herself

31 March 2017 1:09 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After her break out role in the ’80s classic “Fast Times At Ridgemont High,” the enigmatic and darkly charming Jennifer Jason Leigh has charted a course in film unlike any other. This month, the Alamo Drafthouse honors her varied and galvanizing career in a much deserved retrospective, aptly titled “Jennifer Jason Leigh!”

The series, which began last night and continues into May, spans Leigh’s decades-long career, which includes David Cronenberg’s “eXistenZ,” Paul Verhoeven’s “Flesh + Blood,” and Joel and Ethan Coen’s “The Hudsucker Proxy.” One of her most recognizable films opened the series, Stephen King’s “Dolores Claiborne,” in which she went head to head opposite Kathy Bates in a bear of a role.

Small screen queens: how teen angst took over the TV scene

9 February 2017 11:52 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Films like Sixteen Candles used to showcase high school drama, but shows like Pretty Little Liars and Riverdale have relocated the jocks and geeks to the small screen

In the 80s, teenagers had Sixteen Candles and Fast Times At Ridgemont High. In the 90s, it was 10 Things I Hate About You and Can’t Hardly Wait. Then Mean Girls, Bring It On and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants arrived. No matter the decade, there was always a relatable teen movie to offer solace to high school kids just looking to fit in – or to come to terms with not fitting in. But in recent years it seems like these stories have headed to the small screen. Shows like Pretty Little Liars, The Vampire Diaries and now Riverdale have effectively relocated the tumultuous drama of youth to TV.
