The 25 Best '80s Movie Soundtracks (Video)

23 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's hard to imagine it today, when movies are in and out of theaters in a week or two, to be replaced by the next much-hyped blockbuster, but there was a time, back in the '80s, when movies were so pervasive that their soundtracks sold in the millions, making them ubiquitous in theaters, on the radio, and on MTV all at once. The high point of the soundtrack era may have come this week 30 years ago, with the release of Prince's autobiographical film "Purple Rain" on July 27, 1984.

The movie itself was just okay -- except during the performance sequences, which were electrifying and remain so today -- but the soundtrack was mindblowing. And for the latter half of 1984, you couldn't turn on the radio without hearing one of its tracks -- "When Doves Cry," "Let's Go Crazy," "I Would Die 4 U," or the epic power ballad that was the title track. »

Pediatric Hospital Drama ‘Red Band Society’ Is ‘Not a Show with a Body Count’

21 July 2014 7:40 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

While the premise of Fox’s “Red Band Society” might seem depressing on the surface — the Octavia Spencer dramedy is set in the pediatric ward of a hospital — the show’s producers are aiming for a show that will make you laugh just as much as it makes you cry, treating the hospital as “high school, boarding school and summer camp rolled into one.”

The series focuses on the lives of the hospital’s young inhabitants and the staff members who often serve as their teachers, mentors and surrogate parents in addition to overseeing their medical care.

“Pediatrics goes through age 24 and 85 percent of all kids with any one of these diseases recover,” executive producer Margaret Nagle pointed out at the Television Critics Assn. summer press tour on Sunday. “It’s really about that time you spend in the hospital, how it changes you and what you learn… there are »

Press Tour: Fox's 'Red Band Society' takes cues from 'Orange is the New Black,' 'Breaking Bad,' 'Breakfast Club'

20 July 2014 3:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Although Fox's hospital-set dramedy "Red Band Society" is one of the few network series launching this fall that could reasonably be described as unique, showrunner Margaret Nagle spent a lot of time discussing influences at the TCA 2014 summer press tour. For one, the series is based on a successful Spanish drama called "Polseres Vermelles" that launched in 2011. Steven Spielberg snagged the remake rights for DreamWorks the same year and an American adaptation has been in the works ever since. Just like the original, the show follows six teens of various backgrounds united by the fact they're all facing long-term hospital stays for rare diseases. Oscar winner Octavia Spencer plays the lead nurse in their ward, equal parts bossy and nurturing. If the premise sounds a bit like "The Breakfast Club," with a hospital filling in for detention, the cast and crew agree it's not far off. "That's what I thought »

Fox's Sick-Kid Drama Red Band Society 'Is Not a Show That Has a Body Count'

20 July 2014 2:48 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Fox’s upcoming drama Red Band Society — which takes place in the children’s wing of a hospital — is not assigning a ticking clock to each of its patients.

“Yes, there are serious things that these kids are going to have to face. But it’s not a show that has a body count,” executive producer Margaret Nagle promised Sunday at the Television Critics Assoc. summer press tour in Beverly Hills.

Impressions of Evil Dead: The Musical

16 July 2014 1:03 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Doris the Deadite greets us atop the stairs leading to Planet Hollywood’s V3 Theater in Las Vegas. Wearing a blood-splotched white dress with a matching white hat nestled on her curly blonde hair, Doris smiles through the peeling gray skin of her face. Teeth bared, eyes darting from sunken sockets, Doris cackles and beckons us closer for a photo. Welcome to the immersive atmosphere of Evil Dead The Musical Ultimate 4D Experience.

A tasty slice of horror heaven from director/producer Sirc Michaels that’s based on Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead trilogy, as well as the book and lyrics of George Reinblatt, this Vegas production is packed with nods to its beloved source material, but also boasts buckets of blood-drenched originality.

After our photo is snapped with Doris, we hang out in the bar area for a bit before another Deadite calls us into the theater. As we walk down a short hallway, »

The Red Band Society Cast Gets Its Glee on in the Most Adorable Music Video Ever

15 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Prepare to fall in love. Fox's Red Band Society, one of our favorite new series of the season, is like The Breakfast Club meets Glee. Except instead of being set in detention, it takes place in a hospital and instead of bonding over music, the kids on this show bond over the fact that they are all sick. You think it sounds depressing, right? Well, you're wrong.  To prove it, we're sharing an exclusive music video featuring the cast, including Oscar winner Viola Davis and Brothers & Sisters' Dave Annable, singing along to the ridiculously catchy "Be Okay" by Oh Honey, which, yes, was covered on Glee last season. (How fitting!) Seriously, how cute is the exclusive video »

10 Alternative Films That Show The Real High School

8 July 2014 7:23 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

New World Pictures

Everybody’s seen Mean Girls, The Breakfast Club, and Clueless, but there’s so much more to the high school film genre than these classics and those like them. Don’t get the wrong impression: it’s hard not to love films about bitchy-with-a-heart-of-gold cheerleaders and brainless jocks with a sensitive side who fall for a girl not in his immediate friendship group (when done right, they’re some of the most enjoyable films you can get).

Sadly, high school isn’t all shopping montages and transparent metaphors in English class. The popular crowd are just next decade’s alcoholic divorcees (sorry, not sorry), so where are all the films about the interesting kids? Sure, films like 10 Things I Hate About You, She’s All That, and even Mean Girls may all deal with your stereotypical losers, but the main message is always that those losers want »

Me And You Review

26 June 2014 9:37 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Me and You doesn’t feel like a typical Bernardo Bertolucci film. While some of the themes of his non-epic character dramas is there, what isn’t there are the beautiful vistas, bright colours, and enchantingly foreign (for us North Americans) locales. Frankly, Me and You feels more like something from Wes Anderson. It’s a movie about an introspective loner type who tries to create his own oasis away from the insanity of everyday life in a grimy basement, surrounded by dust, dirt and discarded artefacts of his mother’s home. Thinking more about it, there may only be three things that separate this from an Anderson film: it’s in Italian, it’s got some darker tones, and it lacks the elaborate mise-en-scène that Anderson’s basement hideaway surely would have had.

Bertolucci, of course, is a little more grounded than Anderson. His “hero,” Lorenzo (Jacopo Olmo Antinori »

The Goldbergs Prepping 'Very Expensive' John Hughes Homage

26 June 2014 1:27 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The Goldbergs is cooking up some kind of wonderful John Hughes tribute.

Series creator Adam F. Goldberg tells TVLine that a Season 2 episode will feature an homage to one of the late filmmaker’s classic ’80s flicks.

“We are writing it now,” he confirms. “I’m not going to reveal [which film] it is yet. But it’s going to be very difficult to shoot and very expensive. So it’ll be a real nightmare, but hopefully, it’ll turn out great.”

Champs-Elysées Film Festival Honors Indie Genius Whit Stillman, Plus a Retrospective on His Films and More on His Upcoming Project The Cosmopolitans

17 June 2014 10:46 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The most famous avenue in the world was transformed into a mini Cannes for one week. The Champs-Elysées Franco-American Film Festival in Paris screened both indie and major studio films from both sides of the Atlantic in theaters up and down the Champs-Elysées. But it was worth braving the waves of tourists, who were more copious than ever, for the program's third edition. One of the highlights this year was the Whit Stillman retrospective. Sure, the indie filmmaker has only made four movies in about 24 years:  Metropolitan, nominated for an Oscar in 1990 for Best Original Screenplay; Barcelona (1994); The Last Days of Disco (1998); and Damsels in Distress (2011). But with his keen eye and ability to create poignant characters, Stillman is often compared to Eric Rohmer and Woody Allen.  Hit the jump for more on the Stillman retrospective from the Champs-Elysées Film Festival. His stories are studies of social behavior of a »

'Orange Is the New Black' Season 2: Color Us Impressed

10 June 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"Going to jail" is always a more compelling TV premise than "still being in jail." So the whole idea of a second season for Orange Is The New Black might have posed a challenge. But the Netflix drama's second season, released as one big ruin-your-life binge, is even stronger than the already-amazing first one. The female inmates of Litchfield Penitentiary are unlike any other characters on TV — everywhere you look, some dynamic actress is gnawing the marrow out of a role she's spent her whole career fighting for.

Watch: 1984 'Ghostbusters' Chat with Dan Aykroyd & Harold Ramis

9 June 2014 10:05 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

For those who maybe didn't know, this past weekend marked the official 30th anniversary of the 1984 paranormal comedy hit Ghostbusters. The film has proven to be a classic in just 30 years since it was released, and it's still a milestone in the careers of Bill Murray, Dan Ayrkroyd, the late Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson, Rick Moranis and Sigourney Weaver. We'll have to wait a couple months in order to catch the film returning to the big screen to celebrate the anniversary (you can buy the Lego Ecto-1 set right now), but in the meantime, you can check out a set of interviews from 1984 with Aykroyd and Ramis talking about the film, possible sequels and even more about their thriving career at the time. Watch below! Here's the interviews with Dan Ayrkoyd and Harold Ramis with Bobbie Wygant (via The Film Stage): And as a bonus, here's one with Rick Moranis, »

‘Too Cool for School’: Top 10 Random Films Making the Grade

6 June 2014 9:21 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

June 2014. So what does the month of June usually remind one of during this time of year? Well, besides Father’s Day and possible scheduled weddings this sixth month in the calendar year marks the celebrated occasion for the ending of the school semester. Whether students are simply looking forward to their summer vacation or managed to complete a milestone in graduating from said grammar school, middle school, high school or college the month of June is closely identified with the school season coming to a close (unless one can escape the doldrums of a summer school session).

So to mark this auspicious occasion we should take a look at some random films with an educational theme. Hence, “Too Cool for School: Top 10 Random Films Making the Grade” will briefly examine a selection of higher education ditties that taught us something (or perhaps nothing) during our heyday of cramming for tests. »

Joss Whedon & James Gunn Support Ex-Marvel Director Edgar Wright

26 May 2014 9:38 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

We're still reeling over last week's news that director Edgar Wright had departed the production of Marvel's comic book adaptation Ant-Man. After working on the film for eight years, word on the street is that a recent rewrite ordered by Marvel's higher-ups didn't sit well with Wright and co-writer Joe Cornish, so they decided to leave the project rather than compromise their vision. Now some familiar names from behind the camera of Marvel's films have shown support. The Avengers helmer Joss Whedon paid tribute with a single image, and Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn had a more practical perspective. Here's the awesome image Joss Whedon posted to his followers on Twitter over the weekend: .twitter-tweet { margin: 12px auto !important; }pic.twitter.com/2vpeRIZNWH— Joss Whedon (@josswhedon) May 24, 2014 That's a Cornetto wrapper that Whedon is holding like Bender from The Breakfast Club.

Watch sick kids bond on 'Red Band Society' trailer

23 May 2014 4:02 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Sick kids in a pediatric ward are almost guaranteed to be charming, heartwarming and occasionally break your heart with very little effort, and that seems to be the goal of the Steven Spielberg-produced "Red Band Society," which will debut on Fox this fall. Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer stars as a cranky nurse who probably has a marshmallow center we haven't seen yet, or at least haven't seen in this trailer for the show. This seems to be "The Breakfast Club" with a generous sprinkling of cancer, comas and heat problems. With Spencer on board, the bar is set high from an acting perspective, and the trailer suggests these kids won't let the saccharine level get too high. At least the series has a model from which to draw material. "Polseres Vermelles" is the Catalan television show on which "Red Band Society" is based, and it was inspired by real life »

Molly Ringwald and Juliette Lewis join the cast of Jem and the Holograms

23 May 2014 4:09 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

80s animated TV show Jem and the Holograms is a bewildering choice for a film adaptation, yet the project seems to be going well. Its cast was previously announced with Audrey Peeples (Nashville) starring at the eponymous Jem, and Stefanie Scott (A.N.T. Farm), Hayley Kiyoko (The Fosters) and Aurora Perrineau (Pretty Little Liars) as the Holograms, and now The Hollywood Reporter claims 80′s icon Molly Ringwald (The Breakfast Club) is joining the project, in addition to Juliette Lewis (August: Osage County).

It’s not clear what roles Ringwald and Lewis will have, but what is of note is their previous musical experience. Lewis was frontwoman for her band Juliette and the Licks, while Ringwald occasionally sings with a jazz band. It’s easy to speculate that the two might possibly sing in the film, perhaps posing as rivals for Jem and the Holograms. Ringwald’s casting makes perfect sense, as »
