Review: Chloe Moretz shines in surprisingly mature supernatural love story 'If I Stay'

20 August 2014 5:40 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Movies about young love are hard to pull off, and when they don't work, they can be cloying and obnoxious. Done right, though, there is something both lovely and piercing about them, and while I think "If I Stay" has to do a fair amount of juggling to get its premise to work, there is a cumulative power to it that I found undeniable and earned. "Earned" is a big word for me in films like this. One of the biggest problems when you're making a film about love between people of any age is showing how love sparks between people and how it flourishes and doing it without giving in to short-cuts or cliche. How many times have you seen a supposed romance and the meeting is completely ridiculous? How many movies have you seen where you're supposed to just accept that characters have fallen in love because that's »

18 August 2014 4:07 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since the cult zombie classic Shaun of the Dead hit theaters exactly 10 years ago, many fans have been clamoring for a sequel. While that won't be happening anytime soon, Simon Pegg announced today on his Twitter page that he will reprise his role as Shaun, with Nick Frost returning as Ed for Phineas and Ferb's Halloween special on the Disney Channel this October.

Here’s news, @nickjfrost and myself will be once again stepping into Shaun and Ed’s shoes for the #PhineasAndFerb Halloween special. W00t!!

Simon Pegg (@simonpegg) August 18, 2014

Of course, it isn't known how these beloved characters Shaun and Ed will fit into the Phineas and Ferb story, but the series has a long history of referencing hit movies since the show first started airing on the Disney Channel back in 2007. The show has referenced hits such as Star Wars, Star Trek, Indiana Jones, E. »

Towie finale recap: "She sent him nudie snaps and I've seen them"

31 July 2014 7:14 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

It was the Towie finale last night (July 30), and there were surprisingly fewer fireworks and more smooching than we could have ever predicted. Lydia and Arg got it on, Elliott and Chloe are still very much on it, and even Dan and Bobby got swept up with it for an unexpected passionate snog.

For those who missed it, pull up a pew and be prepared for a roller-coaster ride (literally) with our episode recap below:

Towie kicks off with a shirtless shot of James Lock lifting two very heavy tyres.

Why not, eh?

Arg is channelling Alan from The Hangover crossed with Mary Poppins - his words - as he bonds with Billie's baby Nelly. He contemplates names for his own children, and toys with Tum Tum as he's certain he'll spawn "a chubster". He also reveals that he's going to try and win Lydia back and asks Nelly for her advice, »

Chris Pratt Made an Awesome Playlist, Just for You

30 July 2014 1:50 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In Guardians of the Galaxy, Chris Pratt's Star-Lord treasures nothing more than a classic-rock mixtape from his mother, an aural reminder of his brief boyhood spent on Earth. When we ran into Pratt last night at a Guardians screening hosted by the Cinema Society, Men's Fitness, and Fiji, we brought up Star-Lord's "Awesome Mix Vol. 1," and asked the actor what he might put on his own personal playlist. "Oh, that's a good question!" Pratt enthused. "I'm a big country music fan, so probably a lot of Garth Brooks, Eric Church, George Strait. Maybe some good '80s music — we were listening to some Madonna in the car today; I was singing the Patrick Swayze song from Dirty Dancing today." With his thoughts collected, Pratt launched into an off-the-cuff playlist, which you can listen to below. "So ... Eric Church, 'A Man Who Was Gonna Die Young.' Or 'Dark Side. »

Broadway Touring Productions Get a TV Spotlight on Lifetime Morning Show

30 July 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Broadway Across America and Lifetime morning show “The Balancing Act” have teamed for a series of six TV segments that will highlight Broadway titles that are currently on the road or will imminently launch touring productions.

The initiative, called “Broadway Balances America,” will showcase “Dirty Dancing” (pictured, above), “Motown,” “Newsies,” “Annie” and “Pippin” in backstage spots that will air as part of “Balancing Act,” the six-year-old Lifetime series targeted to the channel’s 24-54 year old female demo and covering topics including family, career, health and wellness.

Whereas Broadway, the epicenter of the theater industry, more often dominates what little media coverage that theater can attract, the “Broadway Balances America” programming provides an unusual national showcase for the touring industry, in which Broadway Across America is a major player.

The “Balancing Act” showcase promotes the featured musicals to a viewership that shares a hefty overlap with Broadway’s prime ticketbuying demographic of older-skewing females. »

Secret Cinema cancels Bttf again

25 July 2014 8:40 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Event cinema organiser forced to cancel second consecutive night.

Secret Cinema, the immersive cinema event company, has cancelled the second consecutive night of its latest production, Back To The Future.

Its opening night was canned just a few hours before the show was set to begin in east London yesterday evening, disappointing around 3,500 ticketholders - each having paid £53.50. A preview night on Wednesday had also failed to go ahead.

As seemingly appropriate lightning storms raged over London, Secret Cinema has again been forced to pull the plug on its event, which is due to run over 24 nights until August 31.

In a fresh statement, just two hours before the production was set to begin, the organisation said: “Unfortunately we have no choice but to cancel tonight’s performance.

“Secret Cinema has been running safe arts events for 10 years and on this occasion we have come across a number of difficult issues. As you can »

10 Genuinely Horrible TV Shows Based On Popular Movies

19 July 2014 12:40 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

You can hardly blame the powers that be for wanting to capitalize on the success of an unusually popular movie by creating a television spin-off. Undoubtedly they will expect it to be met with open arms and, more importantly, open wallets. They try to say that it will tie up loose ends from the original film and expand upon the story lines. The problem is, you see, that for the most part films don’t lend themselves to the episodic nature of television. They are very much self-contained units that function perfectly well on their own, and stretching them out is often detrimental.

Then consider the fact that film stars, until very recently, didn’t do television, and therefore would be unlikely to reprise their role. It’s a recipe for disaster, and unsurprisingly a lot of these TV spin-offs were met with derision and swift cancellation, »

10 Romantic Film Relationships That Definitely Wouldn’t Last

18 July 2014 11:15 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

Romance in movies is all about chemistry, the sexual tension between two unfairly attractive humans. It usually isn’t, however, about the realism. Screenwriters sometimes seem like they have a connect the dots mentally when it comes to on-screen relationships, where they need to get from point A to point B to point C, but it doesn’t really matter how it happens. Or if it is even remotely believable. In the movies, the couple always manages to find their way back to one another in the third act, where they’ll live happily ever after. But most of the time, you know it’s not going to last.

Are they compatible at all, or were they just haphazardly thrown together to pander to the audiences? There’s a sense that if the characters can make it to the very end of the film still together, that’s all that matters. »

Richard Marx on His Divorce: 'It Has Been a Painful Time'

Richard Marx's new album may be titled Beautiful Goodbye, but he swears it's not about his breakup with longtime love, Dirty Dancing's Cynthia Rhodes. "There were people who thought that, especially with the name of the album, that it was going to be a record about splitting up," Marx tells People. "And it's not that at all. It's really a celebration of romance and seduction." The pop singer announced his divorce from his wife of 25 years in April, but the couple had been separated since last July.

The Best of “Movie Poster of the Day,” Part 7

8 July 2014 9:41 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Above: UK poster for Eno (Alphons Sinniger, UK, 1973). Designer: Blue Egg.

The most popular poster I’ve posted on my Movie Poster of the Day Tumblr in the past quarter—with over 1,000 likes and reblogs—has been this rarity that popped up at Posteritati this Spring. A British Double Crown (10" shorter than a one sheet) for a 24 minute documentary about the experimental music genius Brian Eno, made in 1973 at the start of his post-Roxy solo career, the poster’s popularity is no doubt due as much to the reverence Eno is held in as to its graphic design. But it is still a terrific poster, making simple yet brilliant use of two color printing and showcasing a multitude of Enos in all his glam rock glory. The text in the corner credits Blue Egg Printing and Design Ltd. and if anyone knows anything more about that company I’d love to hear about it. »

Red Oaks Comedy Pilot Teams Steven Soderbergh With David Gordon Green, Announces Cast

8 July 2014 9:15 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Red Oaks seems like it could definitely be my type of jam. A comedy set in 1985 at a country club in New Jersey?  This has enough shades of Caddyshack to pique my interest.  Of course it doesn't hurt that the show will be produced by Steven Soderbergh or that the pilot will be directed by David Gordon Green (Eastbound & Down).  Red Oaks is gearing up to shoot as a pilot for Amazon (who are still implementing their voting policy when it comes to determining what gets picked up to series). And now the cast has been announced.  Red Oaks stars Craig Roberts (Submarine) as David Myers, a college student who’s an assistant tennis pro at the Red Oaks Country Club in suburban New Jersey in 1985.  Paul Reiser (Mad About You), Richard Kind (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Jennifer Grey (Dirty Dancing), Oliver Cooper (Californication), Gage Golightly (MTV’s Teen Wolf) and »
