'The Goonies' 30th Anniversary Soundtrack Coming to Vinyl

28 August 2015 5:07 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Amblin Entertainment is celebrating the 30th Anniversary of two of its biggest hits of all time. These are movies that went onto have a long shelf life, and are both adored by fans. But it seems that the Back to The Future 30th Anniversary celebration has dwarfed The Goonies. That movie is getting released back into theaters, will have a special edition Blu-ray, and a ton of other collectibles that are hitting store shelves this October. But The Goonies isn't being completely left out in the cold. Amazon has something very cool planned, and its something collectors are definitely going to want to get their hands on.

Amazon has started pressing and producing its own line of vinyl records under the Amazon label. And on October 9th, they are releasing 5 vinyl soundtracks to some of the 80s most beloved movies. Including The Goonies, which is getting a special 30th Anniversary release. »

Dirty Dancing lake had the time of its life, but now it's all dried up

28 August 2015 7:27 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

It seems that Mountain Lake in Virginia – now nothing more than a reddish-brown pit – shows little regard for human intervention or Hollywood nostalgia

Seven miles up a winding road in Pembroke, Virginia, sits the Mountain Lake Lodge, an imposing 1930s stone building that looks out over a manicured lawn peppered with cabins. The hotel is instantly recognizable to fans of the 1987 film Dirty Dancing as Kellerman’s Resort, the luxurious summer retreat where the precocious Frances “Baby” Houseman meets hunky dance instructor Johnny Castle and romance ensues.

Mountain Lake Lodge is proud of its fame, and has preserved its history to the delight of thousands of fans who flock to the resort each year to visit Dirty Dancing landmarks on the property, like Housemans’ white latticed bungalow (now called “Baby’s Cabin”), the dining room featuring the famous “no one put Baby in the corner” table, and the spot where Johnny smashes his car window. »

Whatever happened to Dirty Dancing star Jennifer Grey?

24 August 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Patrick Swayze famously declared, "Nobody puts Baby in a corner!" in Dirty Dancing, but actress Jennifer Grey's unusually low profile since the 1987 film left many fans wondering where she did go.

On the 28th anniversary of that legendary dance lift, the actress has since dated some of Hollywood's biggest A-listers, won a Us reality TV show and starred in no fewer than 11 TV movies. But it was a dramatic "nose job from hell" that meant that her star faded and her burgeoning career took a very different path.

What she did first

8 celebrity couples who tried to nail Dirty Dancing's iconic lift scene

Jennifer's early career saw her bag roles in some stone-cold '80s classics. She made a fleeting appearance in Francis Ford Coppola's The Cotton Club before teaming up with Patrick Swayze on Red Dawn. You'll also remember her from Ferris Bueller's Day Off, playing »

What’s with all the hate for Ghostbusters II?

23 August 2015 10:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Simon Columb on the hate for Ghostbusters II

Off the bat, I’ll admit it’s inferior to Ghostbusters. The combination of Dan Ackroyd, Harold Ramis and Bill Murray, in a family-friendly blockbuster, with a fiendishly spooky-but-fun script is a perfect cocktail of expertise.

With these elements in mind, Ghostbusters II ultimately doesn’t have the innovation calling card. In most cases, this alone is what automatically secures the first of a series as the superior offering. Recently reading Hadley Freeman’s witty and candid reflection, Life Moves Too Fast, on 1980’s American movies, Freeman devoted an entire chapter to Ghostbusters alone – dismissing Ghostbusters II flippantly as ‘Sold out and bloated, something faintly embarrassing from the past that has left an ugly legacy”. Rick Moranis too, has said he was “disappointed with the second one”. Ivan Reitman, the director of both films, argues “We probably waited a little bit too long for Ghostbusters II”. Critics, »

8 celebrity couples who tried to nail Dirty Dancing's iconic lift scene - can you?

20 August 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

What do Ryan Gosling, Harry Styles, Miss Piggy and Jimmy Fallon have in common? They've all recreated that iconic lift scene from Dirty Dancing, which celebrates its 28th birthday today, with varying degrees of success.

Getting it right in reality, though, is another challenge entirely. There's the run-up, the leap, the hold and the dismount - if any of these are off-kilter, you'll be banished to the corner with Mr and Mrs Houseman.

But before you too get in the anniversary mood and make like Swayze and Baby at home, shuffling excitedly in your socks across the kitchen, first watch the finest celebrity wannabes who've emulated the finale for tips on how to have the time of your life (or at least pretend to).

1. Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone

2011's very good rom-com Crazy Stupid Love saw Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone do a stellar job of mimicking the lift. »

13 Times 'Dirty Dancing' Was the Best Movie of 1987

18 August 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

What would the world be without "Dirty Dancing"? A horrible, wonder-less, impossibly unromantic place, probably.

There's an endlessly memorable array of reasons to love the Patrick Swayze / Jennifer Grey 1987 classic, which more than likely had a positive -- if not profound -- impact on your childhood and/or adolescence. So let's revisit the Catskills and take a tour of some of the movie's most iconic quotes, dancing-est moments, and downright unforgettable looks of longing. Just remember not to put Baby in a corner; Johnny Castle hates that.

17 August 2015 2:39 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

It's been nearly 28 years since the original Dirty Dancing movie hit theaters in 1987, but the cult classic still has plenty of staying power thanks to some quotable lines, a seriously awesome soundtrack, and some out-of-control dance scenes. Tuesday marks what would have been the late Patrick Swayze's 63rd birthday, so to celebrate his life, we're taking a look back at the iconic movie that made people dream of a beautiful stranger who'd teach them how to dance, lift them high in the air, and stand up to anyone who tried to put them in the corner. Keep reading to relive some of the film's memorable moments and see 22 things Dirty Dancing taught you - besides, of course, dirty dancing. »

Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp Recap: The Public-Urination Case of a Lifetime

4 August 2015 12:31 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Neil and Victor sneak into the infirmary to make some prank calls. They decided to prank camp chef Jonas Jurgensen (a.k.a. Gene Jenkinson), so Victor tells him that his food is contaminated with “dickfarts” and then escalates very quickly to “I’m gonna kill you and fuck you.” Jonas is not pleased.Unfortunately, Victor fails to hang up the phone, exposing himself as the culprit. Jonas is coming for Victor, and he’s out for blood. Jonas trails Victor to his cabin, but even his intense military training can’t match Victor’s stealth skills. Electro City rehearsals have hit yet another snag. Andy and Katie can’t seem to nail the Dirty Dancing–style leap that’s the centerpiece of the entire show. Andy nearly quits, discouraged at his inability to execute the maneuver, until Susie pulls out some reverse psychology to lure him back to the stage. »

‘Red Oaks’ Star Jennifer Grey: “The ’80s Were Very Good To Me” – TCA

3 August 2015 2:44 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

“It takes me back to a time I enjoyed for obvious reasons –  the ’80s were very good to me,” Red Oaks cast member Jennifer Grey said this morning of Steven Soderbergh’s coming-of-age comedy for Amazon. “I felt like it was a movie,  as if Caddy Shack and Dirty Dancing had a baby raised by John Cassavetes.” But exec producer Gregory Jacobs insisted the series was more The Graduate meets Caddyshack, talking to reporters this morning at TCA. “One of the things we wanted to… »

8 Inherently Annoying Movies That Everyone You Know Seems To Love

17 July 2015 12:23 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

There are a special collection of films that the masses tend to endlessly gravitate around; films that the collective human race are somehow pre-programmed to re-watch over and over again on a regular basis, for no reason other than: “This… again!”

You know the films. Romantic comedies slapped with slightly suggestive two-word titles like Dirty Dancing and Pretty Woman. Lengthy, hopeful dramas with life-affirming messages such as The Shawshank Redemption. Mainstream flicks with just a hint of edginess, like Fight Club. And, of course… anything that Christopher Nolan turns out.

Not that there’s anything nothing wrong with these particular movies; they’re popular for a reason, and people go back to them time and time again because they offer up a sense of tried and tested goodness – they’re comforting, like your favourite hot meal.

But whereas a lot of very popular motion pictures deserve their good reputations, »

The best outdoor cinemas this summer

10 July 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

There’s so much outdoor cinema going on these days, it’s threatening to become a turf war. Surely it’s only a matter of time before we get a full-blown Dirty Dancing v Frozen Sing-Along bust-up in a London park

The major pop-up players in and around London are now well-established. Roving the capital’s parks and public spaces are The Nomad Cinema (to 30 Sep, whereisthenomad.com), which has Napoleon Dynamite and Whiplash in Grosvenor Square this week, Pop-Up Screens (24 Jul to 26 Sep, popupscreens.co.uk), and the Luna Cinema (to 27 Sep, thelunacinema.com), which covers not only prime spots such as Kensington Palace, Kew Gardens and Crystal Palace Park but also venues as far afield as Cardiff, Lincoln and Warwick castles. In terms of programming, they’re all pretty similar: vintage crowd-pleasers such as Mamma Mia!, Top Gun and Dirty-bloody-Dancing, plus recent hits like Birdman and The Theory Of Everything. »

Dirty Dancing Parody Leads To Huge Lawsuit

4 July 2015 2:04 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The phrase "nobody puts Baby in a corner" has pretty much become common tongue. But the second you start using it in promotional/marketing material without the consent of Lionsgate, even if it alters a few lines, well, you.re in trouble. And the trouble just got huge for brokerage giant Td Ameritrade in response to their television campaign that features a few Dirty Dancing references, including an altered version of the famous line from the film.  Lionsgate is going after Td Ameritrade full force claiming the business "adulterated taglines" and used a cartoon "reenactment" of the famous dance lift performed by Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze for their television ad that ran from October to April. The lawsuit follows Td Ameritrade.s attempt last Friday to get declaratory relief that its ad was safe from the infringement.

A second lawsuit over Td Ameritrade's Dirty Dancing ad spoof has been filed. This time, Lionsgate is attacking the brokerage giant for "adulterated taglines" and a cartoon "reenactment" of the famous "Dance Lift" performed by Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey in a television ad campaign that ran from October through April. Lionsgate's lawsuit asserting false association, unfair competition, trademark infringement and dilution follows Td Ameritrade's own attempt last Friday to get declaratory relief that its advertisement was kosher.
