Sarah and Todd Palin and Son-in-Law Dakota Meyer Wear 'Border Wall Construction Co.' Shirts in New Photo

13 July 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

At least some people are in favor of Donald Trump's plans for a "big, beautiful wall" - and apparently they're willing to help build it. Bristol Palin's new husband, Dakota Meyer, shared a photo on Instagram featuring himself alongside in-laws Sarah Palin and Todd Palin wearing shirts that read "Border Wall Construction Co." Meyer, 28, lifts a wood beam over his head as his in-laws smile and hold construction equipment. "Never a dull moment," Mayer captioned the picture along with three tears of joy emoji.

10 Must-Listen Podcast Episodes from 2016 So Far

14 June 2016 10:31 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Maybe you’re a podcast obsessive, filling every spare moment of your commute to catch up on your favorites. Or a single-subject listener, only keeping up with a subject or issue that means most to you. The beauty of podcasts is that they can cater to completists and dabblers alike.

Regardless of your preferred way to enjoy these stories and conversations, it can be daunting to track the latest from every show. To highlight some of the year’s best, here are 10 quality episodes we suggest adding to your listening queue.

Beautiful Stories from Anonymous People – 1. Ron Paul’s Baby

Airdate: March 15th

Why It’s Worth the Listen: In all its various broadcast homes, “The Chris Gethard Show” has been one of the most thrilling weekly experiments on TV. So it makes sense that a Gethard-hosted podcast would have the same comedic blend of empathy and honesty. The show is built on conversations between Gethard and anonymous callers, governed only by two rules: the phone line closes after an hour, but Gethard can’t hang up before then. The host has a keen sense for the unspoken questions, the topics that each caller wants to discuss but can’t quite figure out how to broach. Not afraid to let callers turn the questions onto him, these talks have a way of culminating in a common understanding between strangers, which can be as therapeutic for a listener as it is for the two parties involved. And there’s no better place to start than the premiere, which ends with a moment so cathartic, it’ll make you an instant fan of both the individuals involved.

Listen to These Episodes Next: “2. Passport, Exodus,” “4. The Most Amazing Destruction”

 

Embedded – The House

Airdate: March 30th

Why It’s Worth the Listen: As an NPR production, Kelly McEvers and the staff of “Embedded” demonstrate one of the essential values of great journalism: the power to use specific stories to generate empathy for groups of people often discussed in the abstract. “Embedded” is a ground-up approach to documenting various cross-sections of communities, highlighting the individuals to present an alternative to the group characterization that often befalls them. The premiere episode finds McEvers profiling the residents of a shared home in Austin, Indiana, where opioids have become an inescapable addiction for its residence. The details are stark, unsettling and unadorned. Perhaps the best proof of the value of a show like “Embedded” is that the people at the center of these stories don’t end after a half hour: an Austin resident was the subject of their first follow-up story.

Listen to These Episodes Next: “The League”

 

Extra Hot Great – 114: Blindly Watching Game of Thrones

Airdate: April 26th

Why It’s Worth the Listen: Extra Hot Great has been offering its special brand of TV observations over multiple podcast feed and co-host roster iterations. Now well past 100 episodes into its resurrection, the television discussion show has refined its dependable format, complete with a weekly consideration of a TV episode for induction in their Canon (spoiler alert: they don’t always make it, as is the case with the “30 Rock” episode discussed here). But what sets #114 apart is the episode’s installment of the weekly Game Time feature. The gang plays an round of a listener-submitted game called TV Typos (basically, the round-robin game show version of #ChangeALetterRuinATVShow). What follows is 25 minutes of brilliant, dumb wordplay with enough built-in momentum to have each co-host sobbing by the end. It’s a testament to the co-host’s deep bench of TV minutiae that they’re able to anticipate some of these before they come. The seconds between when you can tell they have the answers and the moment they give them are some of the simplest joys you’ll find anywhere.

Listen to These Episodes Next: “75: Ew Detective,” “103: The People Vs. The People Vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” “105: Ringing in a New Season of Better Call Saul

 

I Was There Too – Raiders of the Lost Ark with Martin Casella

Airdate: February 16th

Why It’s Worth the Listen: Matt Gourley’s interview show takes a biweekly look at the actors on the periphery of some of most beloved films of the past few decades. While the actor interviews give some choice fly-on-the-wall observations from set, the show’s most compelling episode this year is the talk with Martin Casella, who served as Steven Spielberg’s assistant during the production of “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” From impromptu costume decisions to the director’s TV viewing and nutritional regimens, this firsthand account adds a new angle to an established classic. (And for anyone who’s ever obsessed over an Indiana Jones costume, Jeremy Carter’s post-interview discussion of the search for the perfect Indy leather jacket might do the same.)

Listen to These Episodes Next: “Field of Dreams with Dwier Brown,” “Aladdin with Gilbert Gottfried

 

Keepin’ It 1600 – Ep. 7: Cruz-Kasich Alliance and Special Guest Jon Lovett

Airdate: May 6th

Why It’s Worth the Listen: Amidst an election season that’s alternated between chaotic and soul-crushing in equal measure, it’s been fascinating to filter each week’s craziness through the perspective of two individuals who’ve been buried deep within the past two major presidential cycles. Former speechwriter Jon Favreau and Strategy and Communications Advisor Dan Pfeiffer (both of whom worked on President Obama’s national campaigns and in the White House) are each invested insiders and passionate outside observers of 2016’s descent into madness. A weekly look at the current state of political media, it’s also a dependable repository for great White House anecdotes. Alongside fellow former speechwriter Jon Lovett, the show’s seventh episode featured the trio recounting the choicest lines from the President’s various Correspondents Dinner appearances (particularly those delivered in the immediate wake of ordering the Bin Laden compound strike).

Listen to These Episodes Next: “Ep. 1: Drumpf and the Media and Rubio’s Missteps,” “Ep. 5: Bill Clinton’s Finger-Wagging and Special Guest Kal Penn,” “Ep. 9: ‘Meet the Press’ Host Chuck Todd, Drumpf’s ‘Pivot,’ Polling Mayhem, and More”

 

Modern Love – 3: Not So Simple Math

Airdate: January 28th

Why It’s Worth the Listen: Sarah Paulson’s central role as Marcia Clark was one of the main reasons the “American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson” grabbed the public’s attention in the year’s early months. But Paulson also gave another 2016-best performance in a venue where no one could see her face. Wbur’s Modern Love enlists notable performers like Paulson to perform entries from the regular New York Times column that highlights love in all its forms. Paulson reads Amy Seek’s story of navigating an open adoption with a gentleness that conveys the underlying heartbreak without being manipulative. While other episodes usually succeed on the strength of the performance, this one features a conversation with Seek herself, whose recollection of the events she details in her piece and the six years since is a powerful addendum to a story beautifully told.

Listen to These Episodes Next: “7: In Darkness and In Light,” “9: Seesawing Libidos”

 

More Perfect – Cruel and Unusual

Airdate: June 1st

Why It’s Worth the Listen: Some of the best new podcasts of the year have focused on institutions, whether they’re more abstract (American Public Media’s The Uncertain Hour focuses on policies and practice within America’s welfare system) or more defined, as with More Perfect’s close examination of the Supreme Court. In its pilot episode, this Radiolab presentation trains its microphones on the pivotal individuals at the center of multiple states’ capital punishment programs. Layered with the trademark attention to atmospheric sound design that makes its parent podcast such a reliable listen, More Perfect should provide a healthy perspective amidst a judicial branch currently in flux.

Listen to These Episodes Next: Once you’ve listened to this and Episode 2, “The Political Thicket,” go back and listen to the Podcast Hall-of-Fame-worthy Radiolab episode “Stochasticity.”

 

Reply All – #64-67: On the Inside

Airdate: May 11th-June 9th

Why It’s Worth the Listen: This Gimlet show has been the best podcast in existence for the better part of a year now, so to pick just one standout episode is particularly difficult. But the edge goes to the four-episode arc centered on Paul Modrowski, whose blog written from inside prison (where he’s currently serving a life sentence) first attracted the attention of producer Sruthi Pinnamaneni last year. What begins as an investigation of the logistics behind the posting of Modrowski’s expansive online diary eventually uncovers questions surrounding his incarceration. Like the best true crime stories, it balances the details of the central murder cases with a careful consideration of the individuals who allegedly inhabited its timeline. Most popular true crime podcasts keep the perspective of a single narrator, but Pinnamaneni sprinkles in just enough input from regular hosts Alex Goldman and Pj Vogt to add a conversational, illustrative layer to Modrowski’s story. Pinnamaneni’s reporting is extensive and forthright, the kind that will make you want to do your own outside research as soon as the last chapter ends.

Listen to These Episodes Next: “#3 We Know What You Did,” “#44 Shine on You Crazy Goldman,” “#56 Zardulu”

 

Skillset – #3: This is Bringing Up Weird Feelings for Me

Airdate: May 12th

Why It’s Worth the Listen: Amy Nicholson’s first-person podcast for MTV News is an intriguing blend of below-the-line education and critical insight. Between her forgotten film history written intros and the specificity of her interview subjects, Nicholson helps Skillset feel more like a series of audio profiles than regular taped conversations. These episodes highlight movies not just as a vital art form, but a gateway to the rest of what the world has to offer. (How many other film podcasts would have jazz trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire as their inaugural guest?) This particular episode features a window into the practical, unenhanced feline training that let the cats of “Keanu” steal the spotlight against some comedic heavyweights. And if you’re wondering what a real punk band thought of Jeremy Saulnier’s latest genre triumph “Green Room,” Nicholson enlists The Muffs for some authentic opinions. It’s this kind of extra-layer digging that has this fresh batch of MTV shows (“The Stakes” takes a similarly fascinating route to addressing the unspoken side of politics) already off and running at full speed.

Listen to These Episodes Next: All six episodes so far all have quality hooks, but the Sharlto Copley episode from the pilot is particularly worth a listen.

 

Start Up – Season 3, Episode 4: Dear Music Fans…

Airdate: May 12th

Why It’s Worth the Listen: Season 1 of Start Up was a rare glimpse inside the creation of its podcasting parent company Gimlet Media, right as the medium was becoming mainstream. Season 2 stayed nested inside a company’s origin story, this time as an outside observer of a dating site’s early months. For their most recent set of episodes, Start Up managed to compress the roller coaster of entrepreneurship in a more compact form. Profiling the unexpected rise and publicly unceremonious end of Grooveshark, Eric Mennel reports on the music streaming site’s early troubles, serendipitous success and eventual replacement in the entrepreneurial space. It’s a familiar arc for the biographies of these kinds of businesses, but through the Start Up lens, these triumphs and tragedies reach further toward each pole than you might expect.

Listen to These Episodes Next: Season 1 launched the entire company, but Season 2’s 10-episode arc on Dating Ring is still great.

 

Honorable Listens also highly worthy of your time: the aforementioned The Uncertain Hour and The Stakes; 99% Invisible’s ode to trash truck tunes; Mortified’s tale of pining after the vice principal;  Lauren Lapkus helps to tackle kids’ impossible questions on The Longest Shortest Time; Candidate Confessional talks to the recipient of one of local politics’ most infamous viral booing sessions; Five Thirty Eight Politics’ audio doc on the Rev. Jeremiah Wright week of the ’08 presidential campaign; the episode of the Washington Post’s Presidential that proves James Monroe was everywhere in early American history; Making the Sausage’s in-depth conversation about music licensing; The First Annual Blank Check Awards (one of the best 2015 year-end wrap-ups you’ll hear); the ongoing You Must Remember This series chronicling the Hollywood Blacklist is a given for a list like this; The Dollop’s overview of the truly unbelievable Fed Ex Flight 705; Buzzfeed’s Internet Explorer compendium of workplace email/chat catastrophes; You’re the Expert’s hilarious panel show with a leading psychologist who studies nightmares; the Planet Money profile of an infuriating-yet-textbook Internet scamming scheme; The Memory Palace’s cryptic look at an American pariah-turned-wrestler; a careful consideration of the future of animation/CGI via Fighting in the War Room; The Gist and Chris Molanphy remember Prince.

Good Wife Spinoff: Ep Teases Possible Julianna Margulies Appearance

Alicia vs. Diane — Round 2?

The recently-ordered Good Wife spinoff — starring Christine Baranski (Diane) and Cush Jumbo (Lucca) and set to launch in Spring 2017 on CBS All Access — may very well feature a guest turn by the original series’ leading lady, Julianna Margulies.

“We might [see Alicia],” exec producer Michelle King told TVLine at a CBS Studios-hosted press event earlier this week. “It’s all being conceived right now.”

CBS' ideal companion series to the new 'Star Trek' is... a 'Good Wife' spin-off?

18 May 2016 3:14 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Star Trek won't be the only familiar brand name available only on the CBS All-Access streaming app, as a Good Wife spin-off built around Christina Baranski and Cush Jumbo has been officially ordered. The series, which will debut in the spring of 2017, will be co-created by Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King, along with, of all people, Field of Dreams writer/director Phil Alden Robinson. There's the sticky matter of Baranski's Diane Lockhart likely despising Jumbo's Lucca Quinn at the end of the original series, thanks to Lucca conspiring with Alicia Florrick to humiliate Diane's husband in open court and perhaps irreparably harm her marriage. But maybe they'll both blame all of that on Alicia, who will be off rubbing her jaw somewhere, as unseen as Kalinda eventually became on Good Wife proper. On the one hand, there's not an enormous audience overlap between Good Wife and Star Trek. »

There are an abundance of great baseball movies out there, from Field of Dreams to The Sandlot. But more often than not, ladies who play baseball don’t get the spotlight on the big screen.

Batman: Ray Liotta on turning down his audition

Ray Liotta reveals he turned down the chance to meet Tim Burton, and chat about potentially playing Batman...

Head back to the middle of the 1980s, and Warner Bros was in the infancy of putting together its first modern-day Batman movie. Tim Burton was set to direct, and speculation was rife as to who would play the Dark Knight in the film.

Michael Keaton got the role in the end, of course, his casting causing no shortage of controversy. But as it turns out, Ray Liotta was asked to meet with Tim Burton to try out for the lead role – and he turned the opportunity down.

"I think Tim Burton is a great, great director, and I always regretted not going and meeting him, just to talk”, the actor has now admitted to the Los Angeles Time.

2016 TCM Film Festival – Field Of Dreams And One Flew Over The Cuckoo’S Nest

3 May 2016 8:22 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

This past weekend, Hollywood celebrated the 7th annual Turner Classic Movie Film Festival, and this year’s slate of films did not disappoint.

Shown over 4 days and in multiple theaters along Hollywood Boulevard, the festival continues to draw bigger and bigger crowds each year.

This year’s festival treated classic film fans to over 70 movies and special guests, including Angela Lansbury, Faye Dunaway, Rita Moreno, Francis Ford Coppola, and Carl Reiner – just to name a few.

With so many films showing, its hard to choose what to see, but Wamg attended a few of the classics, along with some special presentations.

Field Of Dreams (1989)

The story goes that while Kevin Costner was filming Bull Durham (1988) he came across the script for Field of Dreams. Producers weren’t holding out for him because they assumed he wouldn’t want to do 2 “baseball movies” in a row. And thank god they were wrong. »

The Phenom review: baseball movie throws a curveball

18 April 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Ethan Hawke impresses as an abusive father to a major-league rookie pitcher in an intriguing character study that’s admirably hard to pin down

From its graceful opening credits sequence, which, backed by an elegant classical music score, fixes the viewer’s gaze on some tasteful wallpaper, writer and director Noah Buschel’s The Phenom immediately goes out of its way to subvert all the expectations associated with baseball movies.

Despite its rigorously formal leanings, The Phenom is still a film about a young man struggling to regain his focus and grow into the athlete he was born to be. But unlike Field of Dreams, Bad News Bears, Bull Durham and countless other films centered on the sport, The Phenom is more interested in its hero’s psychological trappings than his talents on the field.

Exclusive interview with Criminal director Ariel Vromen: “Field of Dreams is Ryan Reynolds’ favourite film”

18 April 2016 11:13 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Out now in cinemas, Criminal is the new film from acclaimed director Ariel Vromen (The Iceman), and Flickering Myth’s roving reporter Scott J. Davis sat down with him to discuss his latest effort.

See Also: Read our review of Criminal here

The new action thriller is set in London and stars Kevin Costner as a notorious criminal named Jericho, who feels no emotion. But when the CIA’s top man Bill Pope (played by Ryan Reynolds) is killed, they make the decision to transfer Bill’s memories into Jericho’s mind so that they can continue to track terrorists known as the Spanish Anarchist and The Dutchman before its too late.

On the film, Vromen spoke about casting Kevin Costner against type and also about bringing Gary Oldman and Tommy Lee Jones into the film: “I guess they all just wanted to do a reunion for JFK!”

Why 'Bad News Bears' Is the Greatest Baseball Movie Ever Made

7 April 2016 6:47 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

For folks who loves both baseball and movies, it's incredibly sad that Hollywood's takes on our national pastime continually whiff with a frequency that makes Adam Dunn look like Joe Dimaggio. But 40 years ago today, a film was released that got everything beautifully, hilariously and even painfully right: The Bad News Bears. A tartly-scripted comic saga about a no-hope Little League team from L.A.'s San Fernando Valley, the film — directed by Michael Ritchie from an original screenplay written by Bill Lancaster — shocked and amused audiences with its unbridled »

27 Things We Learned from Roger Donaldson’s No Way Out Commentary

6 April 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

No Way Out has been one of my favorite thrillers since first seeing it in the late ’80s, and it’s a film I happily re-watch whenever the opportunity arises. Kevin Costner was at his prime here, sandwiched between the likes of Silverado, The Untouchables, Bull Durham, and Field of Dreams, and he delivers a terrifically layered performance as a man at the center of a rushed conspiracy. It’s a suspenseful, fast-moving thriller strengthened by sharp writing, great performances, and a stellar foot chase. The film has been absent on Blu-ray, but now thanks to the fine folks at Shout! Factory we can finally enjoy it in HD. I’m sure it’s no coincidence that the film made my list of 10 Movies We Demand on Blu-ray, or Else! last year, but I don’t need accolades — this classic on Blu-ray is thank you enough.

Showtime Developing Cuban Missile Crisis Limited Series from ‘Godfather’ Producer

5 April 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Showtime is developing “The Armageddon Letters,” a four-hour limited series centered around the buildup to the Cuban Missile Crisis, Variety has learned.

The limited series, which will be written and directed by Phil Alden Robinson (“Field of Dreams,” “The Sum of All Fears”) is based on the book of the same name, “The Armageddon Letters,” by James Blight and Janet M. Lang. The tome contains forty-three documents, released under the Freedom of Information Act, chronicling the buildup to the Cuban Missile Crisis, when the world teetered on the edge of total nuclear destruction — including letters from President Kennedy, Nikita Kruschev and Fidel Castro, who built a war machine they almost couldn’t turn off.

The project will be executive produced by Albert S. Ruddy (“The Godfather,” “Million Dollar Baby”), Mike Medavoy (“Black Swan,” “Shutter Island”), Benjamin Anderson, and Todd Martens, alongside Alexandra Ruddy for Ruddy Productions.

Best Baseball Movies

3 April 2016 9:01 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In the midst of March Madness and with the Kentucky Derby around the corner, the first pitch of baseball season is almost here.

A quote from Field Of Dreams best describes America’s national pastime, “The one constant throughout the years has been baseball.”

To mark the start of the 2016 season, here’s our list of the Best Baseball movies.

The Bad News Bears

Considered by some to be the best baseball movie ever, the film celebrates its 40th anniversary this month (April 7, 1976). In an article from the NY Daily News, one line reads, “It is a movie that someone like the late Philip Seymour Hoffman called his favorite, and one which resonates on many levels today, with all different generations.”

Who are we to argue with greatness?

After skewering all-American subjects such as politics (The Candidate) and beauty pageants (Smile), director Michael Ritchie naturally set his sights on the »
