Katy Perry may have kissed a girl (and liked it), but it was a lesbian couple that were locking lips Wednesday night at the 32-year-old’s concert.

Performing at Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, New York, Perry helped a fan named Katie facilitate a surprise proposal between her girlfriend Becky.

The engagement came on a special day for the Lgbtq community, Wednesday being National Coming Out Day.

Bringing the women up on stage, Perry — who was dressed in a sequin silver bodysuit with oversize sleeves, »

Presenting the Supporting Actresses of '85. It was all scandal all the time at this colorful party. There were three much gossiped about women (a mafia princess, a drunk promiscuous entertainer, and a delusional pregnant nun) and two stubborn women who were just Not having either the gossip or the abusive and cheating men around them. It was the about appreciating the color purple (Oprah & Margaret), seeing red (Amy & Meg), and embracing jet black comedy (Anjelica).

The Nominees 

from left to right: Avery, Huston, Madigan, Tilly, and Winfrey

The Essential Harrison Ford

29 September 2017 4:29 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In the build up to the release of Blade Runner 2049 [read our review here], Tom Jolliffe looks at the essential films of the key cast, starting with Harrison Ford

A long, varied and fine career has seen Ford become iconic in two franchises in particular (and indeed the upcoming reprise of Rick Deckard could well make that another).

Throughout the 80’s he became firmly established as the ultimate blockbuster icon. No one has quite hit such iconic and consistent status as Harrison Ford. We’re talking Han Solo and Indiana Jones. One beloved franchise character is something every star dreams of, but to get two, on top of all the other great roles he’s had? That’s astonishing.

So in celebration of Ford, and in no particular order, here are the five films that need to be watched to best appreciate the man’s gifts and star power.

‘Blade Runner 2049’ Could Finally Nab Harrison Ford and Roger Deakins Those Elusive Oscars

28 September 2017 1:33 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The good news about “Blade Runner 2049,” which Warner Bros. and Alcon have been showing gingerly to thin slivers of press, is that it’s a gorgeous cinematic spectacle that more than lives up to its advance hype. What are they so worried about?

Well, the epic sequel set 30 years after the brilliant Ridley Scott 1982 original looks a lot more expensive than its $150 million official budget, and the original movie — which this builds and expands upon with care and finesse — was a critically hailed succès d’estime that failed at the box office. Scott’s influential future noir, which inspired generations of subsequent cinematic dystopias and came remarkably close to predicting what big-scale megalopolises like Los Angeles and Beijing look like today, has built its cult cred over decades.

Miss Sloane Review

8 May 2017 10:42 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

 

Ah, the courtroom drama – a perennially absorbing sub-genre, with endeavours illuminating the screen from as far as back as 12 Angry Men and To Kill a Mockingbird, to the likes of Harrison Ford’s Witness, or Primal Fear, and even Liar Liar. John Madden’s Miss Sloane thrives in this very capacity, and is structured intelligently, as we begin in court, to then proceed into flashbacks as the viewer pieces this tale together, and understand how the eponymous protagonist found herself in this perilous situation – only to then catch up with ourselves for the grand finale.

Jessica Chastain is the formidable Elizabeth Sloane, who finds herself in court over a seemingly trivial matter, transpiring to be a mere diversion tactic, as the ruthless, influential lobbyist seems to gaining some headway in her battle to successfully bring a new legislation through Congress to ensure there are background checks on gun-owners. »

I Wonder What It’s Like to be Lukas Haas

7 March 2017 12:00 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

So I was watching the movie Alpha Dog the other day and you might remember that Lukas Haas has a small part in it towards the end.  And then I started thinking about Lukas Haas’s career.  This is a guy who’s essentially been in Hollywood his entire life.  If you’ll recall he was the little kid in Witness which was made in 1985.  Amazingly this wasn’t even his first role.   He had 4 acting credits before that dating back to 1983 when he was in a movie Testament at the age of 7.    It’s widely noted that Lukas was discovered

‘The Red Turtle’ Director Michaël Dudok de Wit’s 10 Favorite Films

16 February 2017 11:30 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If one is looking to experience a dose of astonishing beauty, now in theaters in the Oscar-nominated animation The Red Turtle. A co-production with Studio Ghibli, Michaël Dudok de Wit’s first feature-length film is a humble, patient drama with an emotionally rich finale. To celebrate its theatrical release here in the U.S., we’re highlighting the director’s all-time favorite films, which he submitted to BFI‘s latest Sight & Sound poll. Featuring classics from Kubrick, Cimino, Kurosawa, and more, on the animation side, he makes sure to recognize a Miyazaki masterwork, along with a seminal Disney film.

“Just before the team arrived, Studio Ghibli called me and said, ‘We’ve been thinking about the list of words that are supposed to be spoken in the film and we think you should drop the dialogue entirely,'” the director told us, speaking about the production process of his film. »

Stargate Sg-1: 10 great guest performances

26 January 2017 12:41 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Juliette Harrisson Jan 31, 2017

We salute 10 memorable guest roles on Stargate Sg-1, featuring Seth, The Keeper and more...

As with our previous features, this is a list designed to celebrate the very best performances by guest actors in Stargate Sg-1. However, we did come across a couple of challenges in compiling the list for this particular series. We’ve defined ‘guest performance’ as an actor playing a character who is not a regular or recurring character – so the actor must have played the character no more than twice in this particular series (though they may have appeared more often in other branches of the franchise). Stargate Sg-1 liked to re-use its best guest characters as often as possible, frequently bringing back characters like Claudia Black’s Vala Mal Doran after what was initially a one-off appearance, which is great as the audience get to enjoy them again, but seriously reduces the number of eligible performances. »
