Get Out Review

22 February 2017 6:27 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jordan Peele’s Get Out is a modern-day provocation commanded by raw talent. On the surface, one can marvel at a feature debut steadied by poise, purpose and tonal damnation. Social relevancy gives a voice to racial unrest, only making this twisted suburban nightmare even more daringly delicious. Peele uncorks a bottle of matured oppression, and adds it to a simmering societal pot that only appears to be bubbling more by the day. Paranoia, exploitation and class dominance make for one hell of a conflict, yet comedy still endures. Not like a confined Key & Peele sketch entertains, though – expect nothing to be held back. Just wait for the last thirty-minutes or so. Fireworks by way of gore, survival terrors and one massive, monumental mindfuck.

Daniel Kaluuya stars as Chris, an African-American photographer who’s dating the All-American Rose (Allison Williams). It’s a big weekend for the couple. They’re »

It’s been eight years since Patrick Swayze’s death at the age of 57, but fans looking to keep a little piece of Swayze alive in their hearts (and wardrobes) are in luck. Celebrity-focused auction house Julien’s has announced that its first major sale of 2017 will be artifacts from Swayze’s estate.

Julien’s hasn’t posted a list of everything for sale online—and catalogs of the entire collection run $100 a pop—but they did list a few juicy Swayze artifacts that are up on the block. The leather jacket from Dirty Dancing—a.k.a. the perfect outfit for determinedly not putting people in a corner—tops the list, at an estimated $4,000-$6,000 price tag. There’s also his shirt and shoes from the movie Ghost, even though we don’t remember “wearing a shirt” as a thing Swayze did a ...

Lionsgate Posts Q3 Loss Due to Starz Deal, Revenues Gain 12%

8 February 2017 1:23 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lionsgate has reported a loss of $31 million for its third quarter, which ended Dec. 31, due to costs stemming from buying premium cabler Starz. Its adjusted earnings were $34 million, or 21 cents a share.

The company, which announced earnings Wednesday after the market closed, reported revenues rose 12% to $752 million driven by gains in TV and from Starz. The earnings were in line with Wall Street estimate but revenues lagged expectations and Class A shares declined 34 cents to $27.70 while Class B shares were off 38 cents to $25.98 in the first hour of afterhours trading.

It’s the first earnings report for the studio since its Dec. 8 acquisition of Starz for $4.4 billion. Movie operations have been buoyed by its musical comedy-drama “La La Land” earning a record-tying 14 Academy Award nominations on Jan. 24 and taking in $270 million in but Lionsgate said the results won’t impact earnings until the current quarter.

“We’re pleased to report increased profits across our film, »

Watch: The Sweet Story Behind Dirty Dancing’s Iconic “Lift” Scene

7 February 2017 3:17 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It’s one of the most iconic dance scenes in movie history.

In the 1987 film Dirty Dancing, the entire plot led up to a climactic dance scene in which Frances “Baby” Houseman (played by Jennifer Grey) is lifted over the head of Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze).

Audiences swooned – and Swayze was propelled onto the A-List.

In a featurette on the 30th anniversary Blu-Ray of the film, those involved with the iconic dance sequence share how difficult the scene was to pull off. Better yet, they share behind-the-scenes footage of the rehearsals. (Watch the exclusive clip above!)

The new army advert: unrealistic or the time of your life?

4 February 2017 3:30 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The latest rose-tinted armed forces ad pictures soldiers singing the Dirty Dancing theme on a mountain. Just watch out for frostbite …

Continuing a long armed forces tradition of portraying working-class white men as blokey bantersauruses is This Is Belonging, a new two-part recruitment ad for the army. “Belonging” is here defined as “being able to have a bit of laddish chat in a war zone”, whether you’re in a piss-wet jungle or freezing your fragile parts off on the edge of an icy mountain. All it takes here to fortify this soldier’s sense of comradeship, it seems, is the rest of the lads chorusing “I’ve had the time of my life” through frostbitten lips.

Blu-ray Review – Dirty Dancing: 30th Anniversary Collector’s Edition

30 January 2017 12:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dirty Dancing, 1987.

Directed by Emile Ardolino.

Starring Patrick Swayze, Jennifer Grey, Jerry Orbach, Wayne Knight, Cynthia Rhodes, Kelly Bishop, Jack Weston, Jane Brucker, and Lonny Price.

Synopsis:

In the summer of 1963, teenager Baby Houseman goes on a family holiday and falls in love with a rebellious dance teacher.

Nostalgia is a powerful thing, and when you’re nostalgic about a film that celebrates nostalgia you know you’re a) overly sentimental and b) getting old. Yes, we’re at that stage now when those classic movies we loved growing up in the 1980s are getting anniversary editions and this year sees, amongst others, Dirty Dancing getting dusted down and re-packaged in a special 30th anniversary collector’s edition Blu-ray.

It is very doubtful that anybody reading this will need a plot rundown but just in case you’re totally oblivious to the charms of romantic musicals it goes like this: »

'Dirty Dancing' Turns 30! 9 Things You Didn't Know About the Iconic Film

27 January 2017 5:02 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

In August, Dirty Dancing will celebrate 30 years since it first captivated audiences with its timeless tale, and Et is digging up some facts about the film that even hardcore fans might not know.

Watch: Abigail Breslin Is 'Stoked' About 'Dirty Dancing' Remake, Hopes to Do It Justice

1. Numerous pairings were considered to play the leads. Today, it's hard to imagine anyone besides Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey in the starring roles, but surprisingly, they weren't the first choice. The role of Johnny Castle was originally supposed to go to Val Kilmer, but he turned it down. Meanwhile, Grey could have lost the role of Baby Houseman to Sarah Jessica Parker or Sharon Stone, who both reportedly tried out for the part.

2. Some scenes in the movie were made up on the spot. "Tons of things were improvised," the late Swayze said in a featurette for the movie. "When I'm teaching Jennifer and I'm getting frustrated, trying to get »

Hey girl, do you have some time to spend with Ryan Gosling?

Sure, he waltzed away with all of our hearts in La La Land — a performance that earned him a Golden Globe as well as nominations at the Screen Actors Guild Awards and the Oscars — but Gosling has been on a mission to put everyone’s boyfriends to shame for years.

The Line of Duty star discusses improvisation, Notts County and mucking about with the cast of This Is England

1.55pm GMT

Thank you for all your questions. Some funny ones in there! I'm still trying to think about what I find most exotic - I'll get back to you on that. Thanks for all your support with my work, and it's still quite overwhelming that this is my job.

RickHall1 asks:

You, Stephen Lowe and Billy Ivory all feature on the Nottingham Trams. What is it about Nottingham and drama/theatre talent?

Maybe it's in the brown sauce... I think there's a lovely, humble trait that runs through Nottingham. We're a city that are incredibly proud of what we've achieved but we don't shout too loud about it. I think when people discover the talents that come out of Nottingham, it is getting bigger. But I think we'll always remain really humble. »

The Magicians Season 2 Episode 1 Review: Knight of Crowns

25 January 2017 7:00 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Channeling the power of a magical god has its perks.

So does being crowned High King of Fillory.

Or, to be accurate, High Kings and Queens of Fillory, as Quentin and his friends discovered on The Magicians Season 2 Episode 1 "Knight of Crowns."

Obviously we knew the show wouldn't let the main characters stay dead/incapacitated for long. That's not how TV works. Still, how much fun was it to watch Alice's body heal itself before she went to work on saving her friends?

She's a badass.

To Quentin's credit, he did try to get help. And it's a safe bet that healer will come back to haunt him. She basically told him as much. That's what I appreciate about this show.

It's not trying to hide the fact that trusting anyone is a bad idea.

Eliot: I vote that we don't touch it on the grounds that exploding Fillory wouldn't help. »

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Season 2 Episode 11 Review: Josh Is the Man of My Dreams, Right?

20 January 2017 7:00 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

You ruined everything, you stupid...

Nope. I don’t think Rebecca, nor the winds, ruined anything.

When the “winds of Diablo” blew their way through West Covina on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Season 2 Episode 11, everyone re-evaluated their choices.

And I think everyone ended up right where they belong.

Things got a little weird during an hour that shifted the direction of the series, so let’s start talking about it!

You might say, 'Don't do it, Winds! Leave these poor people alone!' But I'm a prankster. Tee-hee-hee-heeeee. I just wanna see what will happen.
