Long Gone (1987) - News Poster

(1987 TV Movie)


Everything Rides On That Trailer!

George Chrysostomou on movie trailers…

Long gone are the days when our first glimpse at the latest offerings from movie studios came in the cinema. The preview trailers used to be the best part of heading to your local big screen, because you’d never seen them before; they were a teasing snapshot of what could be, enticing viewers to come and experience this new adventure for themselves. Of course, the market starts to become saturated, films come in their dozens each week and there are now an endless supply of trailers that can now be watched online at the click of a button. Add this to the whole culture of speculation, scoops and behind the scenes information, and the medium has gone through a vast overhaul, where we have now reached a point where a film can live or die by its trailer.

The argument might be made that

'Dreadful' mince pies and macho monkfish – a history of TV's Christmas cookery

Where once the tradition was for instructional recipes and meagre treats, now it is lavish escapism and, of course, Nigella. So, what does this say about society?

‘I always think, and you’ll probably agree with me, that mincemeat is the Cinderella of Christmas cooking,” declared Fanny Cradock in her clipped tones during 1975’s Fanny Cradock Cooks for Christmas. “Those dreadful little bitty mince pies. You know, first bite up to the mincemeat, second bite over.” We’ve come a long way from Cradock’s austere cooking, particularly her Royal mincemeat-stuffed omelette, cooked in what looks like the test kitchen of a particularly battle-worn home economics teacher, who’s had quite enough of the year sevens playing up at the back, thank you. It’s 2017, and we’ve been spoiled all year with unicorn lattes, “cloud eggs” and charcoal ice-cream. It makes sense, then, that the modern TV audience now demands cinnamon-scented indulgence from chefs,

Best Casino Games for Consoles

The casino industry boomed years ago and it’s still booming now. It comes as no surprise really, as it’s an industry that is constantly moving with the times; in terms of technology in order to not only grow, but to provide people with better ways to enjoy their favorite games. Long gone are the days where people had to visit land based casinos in order to enjoy playing the likes of roulette and blackjack, they can now play from anywhere in a variety of different ways.

Today we’re looking at how casino games are regularly being played on games consoles. There are many console games that feature gambling, but what about specific console casino games. They may not be portable like smartphones and tablets, but they do offer a few advantages. One is the fact they are a hell of a lot more powerful, and another key

‘Blade Runner 2049,’ ‘Logan,’ and More: the Genre-Benders That Are Major Oscar Contenders

‘Blade Runner 2049,’ ‘Logan,’ and More: the Genre-Benders That Are Major Oscar Contenders
Every year, the studios take their best genre successes and try to push them beyond the technical ghetto. Oscar campaigners want to convince critics, guilds, and Oscar voters that their movie rises to the level of art. But it’s rare for fantasy, horror, thriller, action or comic-book movies to pass over to the Best Picture side.

When they do, it tends to be an exception like Peter Jackson’s fantasy trilogy “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy. All three films scored Best Picture nominations and technical wins: “Fellowship” scored 13 nominations and wins for Makeup, Visual Effects, and Cinematography; “The Two Towers” earned six and won Sound Editing and VFX; and then came the ultimate triumph for the finale “The Return of the King”: a grand sweep of all 11 nominations including Best Picture. But while “Lotr” fell into the fantasy genre, it was boosted by the literary pedigree of J.R.R. Tolkien.

When a bank robbery goes wrong, a small-time criminal must attempt to save his handicapped brother, while also avoiding capture himself.

Since wrapping up the Twilight series five years ago, Robert Pattinson has done his utmost to distance himself from his teen heart-throb image. Long gone are the days of glittering skin and emotional vampires, these days Pattinson is an indie darling, working with some of the most distinct and challenging directors in cinema, and establishing himself as one of the most diverse actors working today by taking on increasingly challenging roles. Good Time, more than ever of his previous efforts, really cements his place as one of the most interesting actors out there right now.

Where Does Danielle Staub's Triumphant Real Housewives of New Jersey Return Rank Among All the Rest?
"That's right, bitches. I'm back!" After six long seasons, Danielle Staub finally made her triumphant return to The Real Housewives of New Jersey in the season eight premiere. And boy were the circumstances that facilitated her return different from those that sent her packing after season two. Long gone was the intense animosity between her and Teresa Giudice that once sent a table flying amid screams of "prostitution whore." Instead, there was a new Zen-like approach to their relationship, with the two having bonded over yoga and the loss of their mothers. Danielle arrived late in the episode, joining the ladies on their trip to Boca Raton, Fl. And while she didn't find herself in the...

OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder Spills on Epic 'Grey's Anatomy' House Party that Inspired 'Rich Love' (Exclusive)

OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder Spills on Epic 'Grey's Anatomy' House Party that Inspired 'Rich Love' (Exclusive)
Ryan Tedder is re-living some of his wild years. 

The OneRepublic frontman looks back on being "broke as a bottle of wine" in the band's catchy new single, "Rich Love." Only Et was on the set of the feel-good music video, set on the famous 4th Street Bridge in Los Angeles. 

"Everybody who moves to a major city has that moment where you have nothing and you kind of hate it when you're in it, but you don't realize how good it is," Tedder said of the inspiration. "When I moved to L.A., the roommates I had, the friends I had -- we were absolutely dead broke, but we had the best time." 

In the second verse, Tedder sings about epic house parties and angry neighbors. Turns out, that moment was inspired by some very famous friends.

'Hall of Mirrors': Film Review | Nyff 2017

'Hall of Mirrors': Film Review | Nyff 2017
Long gone are the days of All the President’s Men. Now, in the internet era, a documentary about an investigative journalist will most likely consist of endless footage showing someone staring at a computer screen while surfing the internet. That, fortunately, is not the case with Ena and Ines Talakic’s doc about famed journalist/author Edward Jay Epstein, receiving its world premiere at the New York Film Festival. That its 81-year-old subject is so determinedly old-school in his shoe-leather approach is what makes Hall of Mirrors such fascinating viewing.

Epstein has been pursuing his vocation for a very long time. His...

How Political Podcasts Make Informal the New Normal
Tamara Keith and Scott Detrow never know when they might need to record a new episode of the “NPR Politics Podcast.” Just as listeners might listen to the podcast anytime or anywhere, Detrow and Keith regularly assemble episodes on the run, whenever news breaks, as fast as they can. Long gone are the days when you could only get your news at a certain time, by sitting in front of your radio or TV. And podcasts aren’t just smashing barriers because they’re available anytime, anywhere — they’re also informal in ways that encourage hosts to let down their guard.

16 Tweets That Perfectly Sum Up Bachelor Nation's Disappointment With Dean's F*ckboy Ways

  • BuzzSugar
On a show like ABC's Bachelor in Paradise, ample drama is to be expected. But perhaps the most cringeworthy moments of season four were all thanks to America's now-former sweetheart, Dean Unglert (with the brief appearance of the twins from Ben Higgins's season coming in a close second). Bachelor Nation sat back and watched with popcorn in hand (and maybe even a few tears in eyes) as Dean morphed from an angel who could do no wrong to a dude who displayed shocking douchebaggery in its truest form. On Rachel Lindsay's season of The Bachelorette, Dean (or Deanie Babies, as most refer to him) quickly developed a diehard collection of fans, with myself included. He's undeniably easy on the eyes (that contagious smile!), and he seemed to be genuinely sweet. When Dean opened up to Rachel about his "eccentric" father and difficult family situation, people felt for Dean,

Days later, Bello shared pictures from that shoot on his social media but with interest of finding out who that young woman was in the photo.

Riverdale Boss on That Deadly Finale Cliffhanger, a 'Much Darker' Archie and the 'Civil War' to Come in Season 2

Warning: The following post contains spoilers from Thursday’s Riverdale season finale.

It’s going to be a cruel summer, Riverdale fans.

After wrapping up the Jason Blossom murder mystery last week, Thursday’s season finale threw a bunch more thrills and (literal) chills at us: A suicidal Cheryl plunged into an icy river, only to be saved by Archie, and then set fire to her family’s Thorn Hill mansion (hot damn!); Betty and Jughead said “I love you” (aw!), but he also switched schools and fell in with the Southside Serpents (hiss!); Archie and Veronica had sex (yowza!

East Loves West: The ever growing Chinese interest in Hollywood

Tom Jolliffe on the ever-growing Chinese interest in Hollywood…

It used to be that the success or failure of a Hollywood film rested on its domestic box office results. In fact success or failure was often established by the time the opening weekend results had come in, and even further you could say by the estimates in the week before the release. Before the first ticket was sold, studios almost perceptively knew if they had a bomb on their hands. Even more perceptively, they might have sensed this months in advance and taken measures to quietly release it without wasting too much more money on things like marketing.

There seems to have been a shift in thinking over the past five or so years though. Now a major consideration of success is the worldwide gross. It seems studio execs in America now acknowledge the existence of other territories. Now America

Jim Carrey: a salute to his darker roles

Robin Bell Jan 13, 2017

Jim Carrey proved his acting range in the late 90s and 2000s. We salute the likes of The Truman Show, The Cable Guy and Man On The Moon.

You know you're a fan of something when that fandom is put to the test. Did you stick with Community when Dan Harmon wasn't writing it? During the barren 90s did you cling onto the hope that Doctor Who would return and be fantastic? Those moments when your patience and perseverance are tested are what make the privilege of being a fan important.

15 Presents For the Person Who Knows Nothing Is Better Than '90s Nickelodeon

For millennials, Nickelodeon was at its prime in the '90s. However, the good ol' days at Good Burger are only available on The Splat between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., when us elderly folk are fast asleep prepping for the next full day of adulthood. (How nauseating.) Long gone are the days of playing hooky to hang out in Bluffington with Doug or hoarding the landline desperately calling to be a contestant on Slime Time Live. Sadly, kids these days will never understand why hand-drawn bumpers were way better than checking Instagram during commercials or why Smell-o-Vision was the coolest TV interaction in the game. Yes, the peak years may be over, but thankfully, Stoop Kid still hasn't left the stoop. With the resurgence of '90s nostalgia, our favorite Nicktoons and Nick merch are making a comeback. Here are 15 of the best Nick products for you and your orange-soda-obsessed pals.

Real Housewives of New York City Reunion Fashion Flashback: Relive 8 Seasons of Questionable Couture

Real Housewives of New York City Reunion Fashion Flashback: Relive 8 Seasons of Questionable Couture
Even with cast fluctuations from season to season there are a few things you can always count on at a Real Housewives of New York City reunion special: The drama, the fashion, and Ramona Singer. (Seriously, others may come and go, but we've got a feeling Ramona will always be on that couch. We're certain she's the Vicki Gunvalson of this series.) While Ramona has more or less stayed the same since the show's humble beginnings eight seasons ago, the drama and the fashion have only amped up each year. Long gone are the days when someone would dare wear a sleeveless t-shirt with their name printed on it. (Looking at you, Jill Zarin.) While we impatiently await the first part of the season eight reunion...
