The Tfh Gift Guide: Part 2 – Books!

13 December 2011 12:20 PM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

More shill…err, celebrating greatness! (Still very sincerely about the latter and really, really joking about the former!)

As movie-crazy as we can sometimes be, a healthy media diet isn’t anything without a little bit of reading, So, yes, we like to read things. And, sometimes, we even write them.

Which is why there’s no better place to start on a list of essential guru-related books than with John Sayles’ latest novel, A Moment In The Sun. Not only did the book get a stellar review from the NY Times (and from a host of other great, high-minded places), it landed on the Times’ list of the 100 most notable books from 2011. I bought the enormous and beautiful book (it’s 600+ pages) the first chance I had, and so should you. (If you have a Kindle, the Kindle edition is really cheap and much, much lighter than the monster-sized physical copy. »

'American Horror Story': Ryan Murphy talks the Black Dahlia and whether Violet is alive... or dead -- Exclusive

A History of.... Winona Ryder

29 October 2011 9:32 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

We haven't done a new edition of "A History of..." in so long! So herewith a new episode of our exhaustively researched 100% true* constantly on "hiatus" series... today's subject is Winona Ryder who turned 40 this weekend.

1971 Near Lake Winona in Minnesota an immaculately beautiful girl child "Winona Laura Horowitz" is born to Cynthia Palmer and Michael Horowitz. Three wise men, family friends, attend the birth: poet Allen Ginsberg gifts her with angel-headed hispterism and non-conformity (the things she'll say in early interviews!), scifi author Philip K Dick gifts her with the ability to question reality itself (her onscreen eye-rolling will become legendary!), and her godfather LSD guru Timothy Leary will gift her wi ---- so much history to get through! We'd better keep moving.

1978 The Horowitzes move from Minnesota to a ranch commune in California and live with 7 other families so that young "Noni" will not feel alone... utterly alone. »

Happy 40th birthday, Winona Ryder; our Gen-x crush is unabated

29 October 2011 3:00 PM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Saturday (Oct. 29) is Winona Ryder's 40th birthday. We'd like to wish her a happy one, and also thank her for being a significant part of our pop-culture lives.

And by "we," I mean "I." I'm not (necessarily) speaking for the rest of the Zap2it crew here, but as a full-fledged member of Generation X, Ryder is something of a touchstone for me. Starting with "Beetlejuice" and continuing through the great "Heathers" and "Edward Scissorhands," her early work formed the basis of a pretty serious crush for my teenage self (along with, I'm guessing, a whole lot of other guys born between 1969 and '75).

Yes, she was very pretty, but the characters she played were also smart and sarcastic and gave as good as they got. She was basically the dream girl for a certain subset of the teenage male population. She was also the first movie star who »

Review: ABC's 'Suburgatory' a smart new comedy

27 September 2011 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There's a rich tradition on the big and small screen of the high school girl as amateur anthropologist: Molly Ringwald in "Sixteen Candles," Winona Ryder in "Heathers," Alicia Silverstone in "Clueless," Lindsay Lohan in "Mean Girls," Claire Danes in "My So-Called Life," and on and on and on. (Long before she was dissecting the Manhattan singles scene, Sarah Jessica Parker was trying to bring a peaceful accord between the jocks, the popular girls, the nerds and the New Wave kids on "Square Pegs," after all.) If high school is life in miniature, then it needs some kind of wry, clever observer »

Exclusive Cs Video: Ezra Miller & Zoe Kravitz on Beware the Gonzo

26 August 2011 | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

The high school comedy-slash-drama has become a cinematic staple ever since John Hughes defined the genre with '80s classics like The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink . Bryan Goluboff's Beware the Gonzo probably owes more to two of the darker films in the oeuvre, Heathers and Pump Up the Volume , both starring Christian Slater, and it's the latest in a long line of indie filmmakers paying tribute to those great high school movies from decades past. This one stars Ezra Miller ( City Island ) as Eddie "Gonzo" Gillman, a hard-nosed teen journalist always trying to get "the big scoop." He quickly gets tired of the restrictions put upon him by editor of the school paper, so he teams with the school's other outcasts to create their own newspaper. Along »

'30 Minutes Or Less': Five Other Walking Movie Bombs

12 August 2011 6:06 AM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

by Kevin Sullivan

In "30 Minutes or Less," which speeds into theaters today, Jesse Eisenberg's character, Nick, has to rob a bank before a bomb strapped to his chest goes off. We won't tell you how it all ends up, but we will tell you that Mr. Eisenberg is in pretty good company -- plenty of other film characters have found themselves in similar situations that occasionally found happy endings, but frequently ended in a fiery blaze.

Check out some of Eisenberg's bomb-bastic cinematic contemporaries after the jump!

Annie (Sandra Bullock) in "Speed"

Situation: After escaping the booby trapped bus that couldn't drive slower than 50 miles per hour, Annie gets kidnapped by the bomber (Dennis Hopper), strapped into a pressure-sensitive bomb and is handcuffed to a subway pole.

Outcome: Jack (Keanu Reeves) comes to the rescue, disarming the bomb and getting the girl, but not before knocking the bad guy's »

Ten quick-fire rounds: the evolution of the western

10 August 2011 8:21 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

With Jon Favreau’s Cowboys & Aliens opening in UK cinemas next week, we felt it it could be an enlightening exercise to investigate the western, and to discern how it has changed over the years. The western is one of the longest surviving genres in Hollywood, but until a relatively recent return to form, it seemed to have been fading away into the annuls of time. However, the utilisation of sheer will and determination, a virtue that many of its iconic protagonists also possessed, meant that no one could keep the good ol’ genre down.

Basic signs and conventions of the western were discernible from one of the first narrative films ever to be made, The Great Train Robbery (1903). Many generic tropes and tendencies adopted by the genre and its masters have been modified over the years, yet we still know, almost immediately, when a film or television series can be labelled as a western, »

Bridesmaids didn't invent the feminist chick flick | Lara Williams

29 June 2011 7:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

There's a proud tradition of chick flicks that subvert the genre and allow feminist ideas to flourish – here's my top five

Bridesmaids has been celebrated and lambasted in equal measure – heralded as anything from a "giddy feminist manifesto" to barely approaching "quasi feminist". A great deal has been written about the film's apparent feminist credentials, somewhat undercut by the film's marketing campaign, resting heavily on the charming refrain "chick flicks don't have to suck". Jesus, it's like Save The Last Dance never happened.

Chick flicks are so readily associated with misogyny and equally written off as superficial idiot pap – it's hard to see where the sexism lies. Why are we so unwilling to scratch beneath the surface? Why should films be dismissed simply for matching a certain aesthetic? Chick flicks have a propensity of offering a countering space in which feminist ideas can quietly flourish – for every The Ugly Truth there's a Legally Blonde. »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has released its annual list of invited new members, and it’s clear they’re continuing to try to make their membership younger. On the list alongside veterans like John Hawkes and David Duchovny are a slew of twentysomethings, including Mia Wasikowska, Ellen Page, Jesse Eisenberg, Mila Kunis, Beyonce Knowles, Jennifer Lawrence, and Rooney Mara. The Board of Governors also decided to extend an invitation to Restrepo codirector Tim Hetherington, the first time Academy membership has been bestowed posthumously. As a side note, it’s also a hoot to now say the phrase Oscar voter Russell Brand. »

AfterElton's Trending Topics: Guilty Pleasure Movies

8 June 2011 1:40 PM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

The big topic of conversation around the AfterElton employee break room this week — other than snicks stinking up the microwave with his damn tuna melts — was: "What is your favorite guilty pleasure movie?"

Some of the responses we heard were surprising, giving a disturbing glimpse into the twisted dark souls of some of our writers. Meanwhile, some responses (like, you know, mine) just stand as excellent movie recommendations. We thought we'd round up all the various answers in this new feature we're trying out called "AfterElton Trending Topics."

But we don't want to just hear from the Ae writers. As you might have noticed, most of them are blowhards. In the comments, we'd love to hear from our readers too. What is the biggest guilty pleasure in your DVD collection?


From the staff...

Hollywood's most interesting blockbuster failures of the past 25 years

22 May 2011 2:40 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Not every movie can be a hit, and some blockbusters offer far more than their big budget and failure to dominate the box office might suggest. Here's our look at ten fascinating failures...

There are blockbuster movies that fail for good reason. Jonah Hex, Town & Country, Catwoman - they deserved their fate, really. In fact, there are films that made bucketloads of cash that didn't deserve their success, too. You can probably name a few of them quite easily.

But what we're interested in here are the blockbuster movies that struggled to make an impact, yet have something about them that makes them worthy of discussion many, many years later. Some of the films we're about to discuss are outright box office flops. Some simply didn't meet commercial expectations. All of them, to some degree, disappointed the studios that backed them.

Some of these aren't, all in honesty, particularly good. »

Slater Owns Captain Kirk's Powerful Chair

6 April 2011 6:36 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Christian Slater has revealed he actually owns Captain Kirk's Starship Enterprise chair from the original Star Trek series.

The Heathers star's character in new U.S. TV drama Breaking In owns the chair on the show, but Slater admits the prop department didn't have to look far for the iconic piece of furniture - it belongs to him.

And the actor insists the item has an odd power attached to it.

He explains, "It definitely does have an iconic kind of vibe to it. Adam Sandler came to visit the set because he's a producer of the show... and I took him right into the office, where the chair is and I said, 'Dude, have a seat. You've got to sit down in this chair.' He's like, 'No, no, no, that's too powerful, I can't,' and he wouldn't do it.

"When that chair is on the set, you know."

Slater once had the opportunity to meet his TV idol and the man behind Kirk, William Shatner, but he was dressed inappropriately - and instead spent four hours staring at his hero from beneath a table.

He tells U.S. chat show host Jimmy Kimmel, "I was about seven... My mother is in the business, she's a casting director, so she knows everybody, literally, and I remember she woke me up that morning and she had this whole Star Trek outfit for me to wear, but it wasn't, like, a cool Star Trek outfit... She got me a white outfit that had little Starship Enterprises all over it.

"I put this get up on and we went to see a show and then we went back the house that night and there was a party... and William Shatner was standing there in the hallway... I looked at my outfit and I hid under a table for about four hours. He was standing in the hallway that I would have to take to get to my bedroom." »
