Butter on the Latch | Review

14 November 2014 6:30 AM, PST | SmellsLikeScreenSpirit | See recent SmellsLikeScreenSpirit news »

Eventually perfected in Thou Wast Mild and Lovely, Butter on the Latch features sublimely impressionistic lensing (courtesy of cinematographer Ashley Connor) that creates a fantastical mise-en-scène in which nightmares and libidinous desires coexist. Basically, Butter on the Latch is kind of a modern hipster version of Dirty Dancing on a micro-budget -- and with very little dancing -- shot as a verbosely impressionistic fantasy tale. Butter on the Latch is a film that luxuriates itself in the sublime lyricism of primal rhythms and gypsy folklore; abiding by a unerringly hypnotic pulse, the psychological framework of Butter on the Latch skillfully relegates the viewer into a near hallucinatory trance, reflecting the woozy, sleepless unease of the two protagonists. »

Look Back at Ryan Gosling's Heartthrob Evolution

11 November 2014 4:38 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

With Ryan Gosling's 34th birthday on Nov. 12, we're looking back on his time in the Hollywood spotlight. He's been winning hearts and weakening knees for two decades, charming fans on screen and off with his witty one-liners and swoon-worthy smirk. Back in the early '90s, he captured the crowd's attention at a talent show before bringing his smooth moves to The Mickey Mouse Club. From there, Ryan became a teen heartthrob, a romantic leading man, and a fan favorite so lovable that people actually petitioned for him to be People's 2011 Sexiest Man Alive. Most recently, Ryan became a dad. Actually, let's rephrase that - Ryan is officially a hot dad. In honor of his approaching birthday, go all the way back to Ryan's adorable days on the Disney channel to see his heartthrob evolution from adorable crooner to Hollywood's hottest Dilf.

Donald Sutherland Reflects on Long Run of Success, Looks to ‘Snowy’ Future

5 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In a career that spans six decades, Donald Sutherland has traversed all mediums and genres, thanks to talent, preparation and, by his own admission, sheer luck.

He discovered the extent of his latest professional good fortune about three years ago in, of all places, a doctor’s office.

“I was at my dermatologist, and she asked me what I was doing next,” Sutherland recalls. “I told her I was about to do something called ‘The Hunger Games.’ She gasped and started calling everyone into the room, and they all came running. That was my first inkling it might be something big,” says the actor, who wasn’t familiar with Suzanne Collins’ popular sci-fi trilogy when he first read the script.

Thanks to his steely turn as President Snow, the 79-year-old actor has attracted a new generation of fans. He’ll reprise his role as Katniss Everdeen’s nemesis in the series’ third film, »

Tommy Lee Jones Said Really Mean Things To Jim Carrey During Batman Forever

29 October 2014 8:02 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Sometimes a movie duo works fabulously together onscreen, but the two utterly loathe each other offscreen. Rumor has it this was the case for Audrey Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart on Sabrina, Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey on Dirty Dancing, and even Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling on The Notebook. Well, add Batman Forever's dastardly duo of Tommy Lee Jones and Jim Carrey to this list. It turns out Jones loathed Carrey, and had no trouble letting it be known. While promoting his upcoming Dumb and Dumber To, Jim Carrey appeared on Howard Stern's show for a lengthy interview. About 55 minutes in, talk turns to Carrey's time playing the Riddler in Joel Schumacher's Batman Forever, in which Tommy Lee Jones co-starred as Two-Face. Well, it turns out Jones was less than thrilled to be sharing scenes with the comedian, and wasn't shy about letting Carrey know. According to Carrey, »

Caroline Flack feels like she is starring in 'Dirty Dancing'. The former 'Xtra Factor' presenter is incredibly excited to be taking part in 'Strictly Come Dancing' - on which she is partnered with professional dancer Pasha Kovalev - because she can't help but think of the classic movie, which starred Jennifer Grey and the late Patrick Swayze. She said: '''Strictly' is basically 'Dirty Dancing'. That's the only way I can explain it. ''And Pasha is Patrick Swayze - look at him. He's like, 'Step on the two' and I'm like, 'Eeek! It's 'Dirty Dancing'! Eeek!' '' Caroline admits she is ''in awe'' of her »

And The X Factor title goes to...

Nope, we've not got that far yet. Still another couple of months to go - but Saturday night is Movie Night on ITV's primetime reality TV juggernaut.

So dust off your gladrags, order in the popcorn and stop trying to work out which member of Stereo Kicks is which for a moment - because tomorrow night's song choices are in. There's power ballads aplenty, so expect more key changes than a Westlife album.

Which young hopeful will be hoping to meet the challenge of his rivals, who wants you to 'Listen' to them and which soloist has the unenviable task of singing a track originally performed by four artists? Find out below...

We want all of the cake. All of it.

We have a lot of feelings about cake. But this sums it up in two GIFs:

We love all kinds of cake — wedding cake, graduation cake, whatever occasion at the office warrants a cake in the break room — but the best kind of cake is birthday cake. Your birthday cake. Which 1-year-old Bauer was #blessed to learn early in life.

Watch: 8-year-old boys nails ‘Dirty Dancing’ choreography!

“My son's first birthday was December 7, 2013,” mom Darcy Danson says. “He had never tasted cake. When we gave him his birthday cake, we had no idea that he would enjoy it so much that he would nosedive right into it.”

Bauer’s birthday may have been last year, but the video wasn’t uploaded until now — right in time to start the countdown to his second birthday. Because you Know Bauer is already ready for that cake.

Bald James Franco Poses with a Bloody Megan Fox

James Franco offers no explanation for this bizarre photo, but we've got some ideas.

James Franco offered no explanation for this bizarre Instagram photo he posted on Tuesday night of him and Megan Fox, but we've got some ideas.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles actress is seated on a bald and mustachioed Franco's lap, wearing a white, bloody gown that she has paired with a white boa. The outlandish actor apparently felt the best caption for such a creepy photo should read: "Megan Foxy is the best!"

Photos: Guess That Zombie!

Megan Foxy is the best!

A photo posted by James Franco (@jamesfrancotv) on Oct. 10, 2014 at 7:42 Pdt

Back in 2011, Fox, 28, and Franco, 36, teamed up for the environmental documentary Na Nai'a Legend of the Dolphins, but we're pretty sure this isn't a sequel to that doc. What seems more likely is that the two are shooting scenes for Franco's new 10-episode AOL series, Making a Scene »

There are some things you can just watch over and over again, like every sexy dance sequence in Dirty Dancing... or this adorable eight-year-old's re-creation of the film's memorable finale. When the boy's mother realized her son had taken a bit of a liking to the moves on display in the 1987 movie starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey, she whipped out her cell phone and captured something you definitely need to see to believe.   Once you get over the fact that this eight-year-old has better moves than you, there's no denying this kid is destined for a future season of Dancing with the Stars.

8-Year-Old Boy Channels Patrick Swayze to Perform Nearly Perfect Dirty Dancing Finale

14 October 2014 11:20 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Nobody puts baby in the corner! Charlie, 8, proved this point by recreating a spot-on performance of Dirty Dancing's final number (lift not included), the Today show reports. Mimicking the moves of Patrick Swayze's Johnny Castle, Charlie easily delivers every one of the character's signature hip swivels and box steps as he watches along with the movie. The only thing missing from Charlie's amazing Johnny impersonation is a dance partner, which the boy should have no trouble finding now. Charlie's mesmerizing routine went viral after his family posted the video to Facebook. This isn't Charlie's first time taking center stage. »
