Peggy Sue Got Married (1986) - News Poster


By Far the Funniest Line in the History of Nicolas Cage’s Career

Little do many people know that none other than Francis Ford Coppola directed the 1986 comedy Peggy Sue Got Married which starred Kathleen Turner and Nicolas Cage. It was definitely a strange movie to say the least. I feel like it blended dumb, watered down comedy with surprisingly good cinematic elements. I suppose that’s what you get when you put Coppola behind the camera. But there was one scene in the movie that gets me every single time. It’s a scene where Kathleen Turner is trying to get Nicolas Cage to have sex with her. If you haven’t seen the

Asc Career Honoree John Toll Learned From the Best

Back in the day, aspiring cinematographers would join the union and work their way up, learning their craft along the way. And if they were lucky, they would be mentored by a few good men.

“John is one of the last examples of that,” says Caleb Deschanel of fellow director of photography John Toll, who will receive the American Society of Cinematographers’ Lifetime Achievement Award at the group’s 30th annual awards ceremony Feb. 14.

“(Toll) worked with fantastic d.p.’s and had the focus and determination to learn from them,” adds Deschanel, who himself received the career honor in 2009. “Today, there are so many film schools, and people burst onto the scene without all that experience. Many of the films John has done, with sweeping battles, would have become chaos in the hands of a lesser cinematographer. John maintains his artistry, because of his command of all the available

Sweet Adeline

It's sweet, all right, not to mention sentimental and corny -- As Adeline Schmidt, Irene Dunne leaves her father's beer garden to sing in New York, where she falls prey to a predatory playboy.

Dunne shows the film world the voice that brought her fame on Broadway -- "Why Was I Born?", "Lonely Feet" -- supported by Donald Woods, Louis Calhern and Dorothy Dare. Warners' new restoration makes this a must see for Irene Dunne fans.

Best Comics of 2015 (Part Two)

5. Paper Girls (Image)

Paper Girls #1-3

Written by Brian K. Vaughan

Art by Cliff Chiang

Colors by Matthew Wilson

Letters by Jared K. Fletcher

Only three issues in, Brian K. Vaughn and Cliff Chiang’s Paper Girls has already piqued intense fandom. Grounded in the recognizably familiar–1988 Midwestern suburbia–with its head in the clouds–aliens on dinosaurs, time travelers, mutant teenagers, Paper Girls engages both the heart and the mind. The four pre-teens on their paper route–Erin, Mack, Tiffany, and K.J.–are tough, mature, and can persevere through the toughest situations. They have to be, they’re paper girls. But they’re also only 12, so their innocence and relative naivety give them space to grow as characters. Littered with artifacts from the era, the comic is, in part, an authentic period piece, colored in the equivalent of retro sepia-tones for the late 80’s.

The characters speak in the parlance of the time,

The Final Girls | Review

Spoofaway Camp: Strauss-Schulson’s Playful Mash-up Takes a Tumble On You

Director Todd Strauss-Schulson, whose last feature was A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas (2011) returns with The Final Girls, an entertaining surprise of sorts as a playful riff on early 80s slasher tropes as it borrows the cosmic charms at play in classic titles like Woody Allen’s The Purple Rose of Cairo (1984) and The Wizard of Oz (1939).

With a talented young cast and plenty of boisterous energy, Strauss-Schulson manages to instill a thread of sentimentality in this generally comedic feature, and ironically makes us care more for its characters than the films it pays homage to actually manage. Those looking for genre thrills will most likely be disappointed, and its eventual outcome is a bit too hoary despite its enjoyable cuteness from screenwriters M.A. Fortin and Joshua John Miller (the team who wrote Rose McGowan’s 2014 short film Dawn,

Nicolas Cage: The Hollywood Flashback Interview

It was August, 2005. I knocked on the double door at the Four Seasons. It opened almost immediately. "Hi, I'm Nic," he said, hand outstretched. Nicolas Cage wasn't who I expected him to be. Like all actors, he was smaller and trimmer in person than he appeared on-screen. Neatly dressed in an Armani suit, Cage also displayed none of the manic fervor in real life as had become his signature on-screen. He was thoughtful, well-spoken and incredibly literate in all seven arts. It's an infrequent experience that you leave an interview feeling you've just met someone that you could hang out with regularly, but I got that with Nic Cage, in spades. He was endlessly fascinating, but also kind of a regular guy. Another of my favorite chats I count myself lucky to have been part of.

15 Things You Didn’t Know About Nicolas Cage

Warner Bros.

Ah, Nicolas Cage. Whatever your thoughts of Cage as an actor, you can’t argue the fact that he’s consistently entertaining, whether he’s appearing in an art-house indie like Leaving Las Vegas or a no-brain action blockbuster like Drive Angry or Con Air or The Rock or Bangkok Dangerous or…well, we could go on and on here.

Cage was always special, even as a kid when he used to dress up as a character called ‘The Spirit’ and prowl the alley behind his house in the early hours of the morning. Even then, there was something a little ‘off’ about the charismatic Cage.

He got into acting at an early age, aided no doubt by his connection to the Coppola family. Early roles such in films as varied as Peggy Sue Got Married, Vampire’s Kiss, Moonstruck, Raising Arizona and Wild At Heart alerted Hollywood

Bluray Review: Lord Of Illusions

This year has definitely been one of a hit for both Scream Factory And Clive Barker. Sf gave fans countless releases completely devoted to the genre’s fans, including the phenomenal Halloween: The Complete Collection, which brought the entire series, along with the long-wanted “Producer’s Cut” of H6 to the masses. Also a smashing success of a release, was the final releasing of Barker’s Nightbreed: The Director’S Cut, a release that fans have been waited two decades for. Sf put out many more wonderful releases, but even just mentioning those two is reason enough to triumph the genre juggernaut of a company.

Adding another long-waited film of Clive Barker’s to the Bluray format, is Scream Factory’s excellent Director’s Cut release of his 1995 magic noir tale, Lord Of Illusions. Though the film’s supplemental features aren’t as massive as Nightbreed‘s, the release

Jim Carrey Facts: 29 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the 'Dumb and Dumber To' Star

Believe it or not, Jim Carrey has graced the big screen for over 30 years.

Carrey started off as a stand-up comic in Canada, but veered towards TV and film a few years after his move to Hollywood. The actor landed a variety of roles in no time, and Carrey's big break came in the early '90s on the popular sketch comedy show "In Living Color" (1990-1994). After becoming a featured player on the show, Carrey was offered the lead roles in "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective," "The Mask," and "Dumb and Dumber" -- all in 1994. Yeah, he did all right. This fall, Carrey returns to one of his landmark roles, playing the affable goof Lloyd Christmas in "Dumb and Dumber To."

From his friendship with Tupac to his co-star romances, here are 29 things you probably don't know about Jim Carrey.

1. James Eugene Carrey was born January 17, 1962 in Ontario, Canada to Kathleen Oram and Percy Carrey.

If Jamie Dornan had returned to 'Once Upon a Time': What would've been

Once Upon a Time nearly got 50 shades hotter last season.

During season three, executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis revealed to reporters that they had a plan for Jamie Dornan to return as Sheriff Graham, a.k.a. the Huntsman, who died in season one after Regina crushed his heart. Ultimately, Dornan couldn’t make it work because the actor was busy shooting Fifty Shades of Grey. At the time, the Once bosses couldn’t even reveal their initial plans, and now it’s clear why: Sheriff Graham would’ve appeared in the season finale, which featured Emma and

Nicolas Cage Facts: 55 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the Oscar Winner

Nicolas Cage...

Undoubtedly one of the biggest -- and unique -- actors of his generation, Nicolas Cage got his start in 1982's "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" in a part so small if you blink you'd miss it. Then, after changing his name from Coppola to Cage, the actor's career took off and he's been a leading man ever since.

This week, Cage stars in David Gordon Green's "Joe," as a hot-tempered, but protective ex-con in a role that has critics raving about the actor's restrained performance. Whether or not you're a fan of the intense star, there's no denying he's a cinematic force to be reckoned with.

From his unexpected connection to J.D. Salinger to his questionable dinosaur skull purchase, here are 55 things you probably don't know about Nicolas Cage.

Oh, that Nicolas Cage. We can.t get enough of him. He.s the best. I would like to think that his role is Raising Arizona pre-determined the path that his career would take. Or maybe it was the one in Valley Girl... Or the one in Peggy Sue Got Married. I like the actor that Cage has grown into. He.s sort of a lovable oddity like John Malkovich. While I.m not a fan of some of the random B-movies he.s put out, I am still in his corner. Really, I can.t wait to see what he decides to take on...
