July 8th Blu-ray & DVD Releases Include Bloody Birthday, Lake Placid, The Raid 2

7 July 2014 5:44 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

This week’s Blu-ray and DVD releases are an eclectic bunch, to say the least. Not only is Steve Miner’s criminally overlooked horror/comedy creature feature Lake Placid swimming its way onto Blu-ray, but Severin Films is also releasing a trio of controversial cult classics- Bloody Moon, The Baby and Bloody Birthday-all  in high definition for the first time ever.

The Time Machine is also getting a Blu-ray release this week, along with Gareth Evans’ stunning action masterpiece The Raid 2 and a handful of indie horror films, including the wickedly entertaining horror musical Stage Fright starring Minnie Driver and Meat Loaf. Overall, it’s a good week to be a genre fan with oddball tastes because there’s a whole lot of wonderfully weird stuff arriving this Tuesday.

Spotlight Titles:

The Baby (Severin Films, Blu-ray)

An A-list director. A jaw-dropping storyline. And depraved depictions of suburban violence, »

Spotlight Titles:

Bloody Birthday- UK Release (Import, Blu-ray)

Get ready for the rarely seen slasher classic from the 80s that may also be the most disturbing killer kids movies in grindhouse history: Three babies are simultaneously born in the same hospital at the peak of a full solar eclipse. Ten years later, »

Ensemble TV Actors Shine in Smaller Roles

10 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Let’s be honest: While it’s great to win an Emmy — any Emmy — almost every actor would prefer a leading role to a supporting one.

That said, some of today’s top movie stars got their start in a supporting TV role. Woody Harrelson first came to fame playing the dim but sweet Woody on “Cheers,” a role for which he was nominated for six Emmys and won once (Harrelson also was nominated in 2012 for playing Steve Schmidt in HBO’s “Game Change”). Two-time Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper was once Sydney Bristow’s (Jennifer Garner) best friend on J.J. Abrams’ “Alias.” And even Leonardo DiCaprio got his start playing foster child Luke Brower on “Growing Pains.”

So it’s not all bad playing second fiddle. After all, Lupita Nyong’o made quite a splash as the stylish newcomer and ultimately Oscar’s supporting actress.

Still, it can be hard »

Alan Thicke Reunites with Growing Pains Cast and John Stamos (Video)

4 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

var brightcovevideoid = '3605379512001'; Fans of easy-to-make puns and '80s television: We've got a treat for you. For the mid-season finale of Alan Thicke's reality show, Unusually Thicke, Thicke hosts a Growing Pains reunion at a barbecue and hangs out with John Stamos. If that sentence didn't send your nostalgia-o-meter into the red, nothing will. At one point, Stamos has a conversation with Thicke about rebooting Growing Pains, with him playing Mike Seaver. And adding zombies. Or vampires. Or gay people. (It's important to note that, earlier this year, Thicke referred to his show as "reality-ish," so maybe »

Nic Cage Will Save Us From the End in First Left Behind Trailer

30 May 2014 2:42 PM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Vic Armstrong’s “Left Behind” is the first of what the producers no doubt hope will be a new series. It’s actually a reboot of a series from a decade or so ago, starring former “Growing Pains’” Kirk Cameron. There was, I think, two films in that franchise. I recall liking both films for what they were — moderately budgeted end-of-the-world movies. I’m a sucker for end-of-the-world movies. Not so much for all the God talk. I could do without that, but then again, I’m going to Hell, so what else is new. Flash-forward to 2014, and the same people behind the “Left Behind” movies are back and revisiting the apocalypse, this time with Nicolas Cage as their star. (Chad Michael Murray steps in for Cameron as the improbably named Buck Williams.) Getting Cage for a movie isn’t nearly as impressive as you would think, given that Cage does about 50 movies a year. »

Watch Nicolas Cage in the Left Behind Trailer

30 May 2014 7:15 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The first trailer for the Left Behind reboot is finally here. For those who don't know what Left Behind is (you're going to Hell), it's a very popular 16-part series of Christian novels about the Rapture. The first in the series was made into a straight-to-dvd movie in 2000 starring Growing PainsKirk Cameron. Now the production value has been increased (as it couldn't have been decreased), and freaking Nicolas Cage is the star. The trailer has a lot more God talk than your standard action-movie trailer but is actually kind of coy about it all. Maybe they're hoping they'll be able to convert the general action-movie audience. You know, just like how there are now all those churches dedicated to Godzilla. »

Those Were The Days (of TV theme songs)

25 May 2014 2:04 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Like it or not, the television landscape has changed. Reality TV and its “stars” seem to be here to stay, which is bad news for nostalgia freaks like me, who’d rather watch repeats of old shows than spend half an hour with a real housewife, a top chef, or a Boo Boo of any kind. While the number of reality shows are on the increase, an integral part of TV viewing has quietly been disappearing; that simple melody that you waited to hear with anticipation once a week coming from your living room, aka a theme song.

If you’re under a certain age (like say, 25 or younger), you might not get my gripe. I can’t really blame you; most likely you’ve grown up with slim pickings as far as theme songs go, and by now watch everything online anyway, commercial and theme song free. But shocker: »

Early Roles for the Currently Famous

16 May 2014 3:28 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

There are plenty of lists waxing nostalgic about revisionist history online. Some even border on irritating, know-it-all anecdotes to drop on people at parties. “Speaking of Denzel Washington,” the partygoer will undoubtedly interject during the ongoing debate about Malcolm X’s role as a historical figure, “did you know he was in Death Wish?”

For such situations, I offer the following, less reported early roles with which to retort. Because for every Leonardo DiCaprio in Growing Pains, there’s one of these:

Jim Caviezel firebombed Alcatraz – The Rock

It’s easy to miss the Person of Interest star/Jesus as the fighter pilot who drops a load of bombs on Alcatraz, blowing Nicolas Cage out of the water (something we’ve secretly all wanted to do). That may have to do with the pilot oxygen mask covering his face during most of his screentime.

Selena Gomez Unfollows Famous Friends On Instagram And Twitter

27 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Selena Gomez has unfollowed everybody on Instagram after first cutting off famous friends Kylie and Kendall Jenner, Taylor Swift and Ashley Benson.

Selena Gomez Instagram Purge

Gomez’s unfollowing spree came just days after she was photographed attending Coachella with the Jenners and her on-and-off boyfriend Justin Bieber. Not only did Gomez stop subscribing to Kendall and Kylie’s Instagram feeds, Gomez also reportedly deleted a few photos of herself posing with the duo at the outdoor festival, sparking rumors that she had decided to cut off Kendall and Kylie completely, believing them to be negative influences. However, looking at Gomez’s Instagram page, one can clearly see a photo of Gomez posing with the Jenner sisters, as well as a few other friends.

Gomez also unfollowed her famous friends on Twitter, but is still listed as following 1,293 Twitter accounts. A quick glance at the list suggests that most of »

‘Boyhood’ International Trailer: Richard Linklater’s Growing Pains

25 April 2014 1:54 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Richard Linklater is nothing if not ambitious. In 2013, he brought his celebrated, wholly unexpected trilogy of indie romances – Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, and the Oscar-nominated Before Midnight – to a close, wrapping up the complex human drama he’s woven with Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke over the span of nearly two decades (though for all anybody knows, they might have one more story about Jesse and Celine left to tell); now, Linklater is grooming his latest enterprise, Boyhood, for a theatrical run with its very first trailer, seen above.

What makes Boyhood so special, and part of what has drawn raves for the film during its tenure on the 2014 festival circuit, lies in precedent. Back in 2002, Linklater found and cast a seven-year-old Ellar Coltrane as the picture’s star, which chronicles the growth of a boy ...

Is Selena Gomez Pouring Her Heart Out on Instagram? Singer Shares Moody Snaps and Song Lyrics, Unfollows Everyone

22 April 2014 4:35 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Selena Gomez is going back to black. The singer quoted the Amy Winehouse lyric in one of her recent cryptic Instagram posts, seemingly giving insight into her emotions as of late. The surprising caption was accompanied by a moody selfie, which shows the singer wearing heavy black eyeliner and a somber expression while her thick brown hair covers half of her face. But that's not Gomez's only attention-grabbing photo. She also posted an Instagram shot of a review of Mary J. Blige's 2007 album Growing Pains with the lyrics to the tune "Work in Progress" What's more? Selena is now following zero people on the photo-sharing site.

Friends is never coming back and as a fan, I'm grateful

22 April 2014 12:29 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Courteney Cox has insisted Friends won't return, in contrast to rumours about a Will & Grace reunion. That's good to hear

The cast of Will & Grace may be on the verge of a reunion, but Courteney Cox has given Friends fans the ultimate gift: confirmation that the comedy will never return. It's not gonna happen, she told David Letterman emphatically on Monday night.

And praise the Central Perk gods that be, because TV reunions rarely live up to the hype. Take Growing Pains and its cast, who, after the series ended in 1992, teamed up for not one, but two (two!) terrible TV movies. Equally cheesy was each Brady Bunch reunion, while in terms of disappointment, 2000s Mary and Rhoda trumped them all especially since the ABC film based on the famous 70s characters barely mentioned the lives theyd lived during their weekly episodes. Imagine a Friends mini-movie with no mention of »

Watch the Opening Scene from Brin Hill and Joss Whedon’s In Your Eyes

18 April 2014 8:36 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

While Joss Whedon is currently directing the blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron, he hasn't forgotten about indie fare.  His previous film was the microbudget adaptation of Much Ado about Nothing, and he also wrote the upcoming drama In Your Eyes.  Directed by Brin Hill, In Your Eyes is "about two seemingly polar opposites who are deeply connected in ways neither could have ever imagined."  The opening scene has gone online, and if it's focused on the younger versions of the two "polar opposities", then this scene reveals their intriguing, supernatural connection.  Even though there is a supernatural twist, I almost got a Snow Angels vibe when it comes to an idyllic school environment being disrupted by a distant tragedy.  I'm definitely curious to check out more of this film. Hit the jump to check out the In Your Eyes opening scene.  The film stars Zoe Kazan (Ruby Sparks), Michael Stahl-David »

Alan Thicke Weighs In On Son Robin Thicke's Marriage To Paula Patton

16 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Alan Thicke, father to “Blurred Lines” singer Robin Thicke, hopes for the best for his son and his estranged wife Paula Patton.

Alan Thicke Comments On Robin Thicke's Marriage

Thicke, 67, isn’t sure whether or not Robin Thicke and Patton are going to officially reconcile after announcing their plans to separate earlier this year. Thicke thinks that they’re two great people, and his main concern is that they’re happy – together or apart.

"I hope whatever they decide to do will make them both happy,” Thick, who starred on Growing Pains, told E! News. “That's the key thing. You want your kids to be happy. They're strong, smart and talented people and they'll make great decisions."

With his wife of nine years, Tanya, and their 16-year-old son Carter, Thicke is starring in his own semi-reality series Unusually Thicke that premieres Wednesday on Tvgn. While his eldest son from »

Alan Thicke on His New Reality Sitcom and Being ‘Considerably More Boring Than Jason Seaver’

16 April 2014 11:39 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Given that Alan Thicke will forever be associated with the 1985–92 sitcom Growing Pains, his latest TV project feels downright Warholian. He stars in Unusually Thicke, a Canadian-produced “reality sitcom” premiering tonight on the TV Guide Network that sends up annoying reality-programming tropes (e.g., intrusively plucky background music, swooping establishing shots showcasing the family mansion’s beige exterior) but also plays out like a scripted comedy. It is surprisingly astute at skewering the ridiculousness of everyday Hollywood, such as when Alan is outed as a swag-bag hoarder and is convinced by his wife, Tanya, and teenage son, Carter, to unload it via a charity garage sale — which, of course, winds up involving Bob Saget doing stand-up for bargain hunters. (Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, LeVar Burton, and Minnie Driver also turn up in the premiere, and future episodes will feature John Stamos, David Hasselhoff, and, yes, Robin Thicke.).
