6 Alternative Movies To Watch This Mother’s Day

2 May 2016 12:59 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It seems like a no-brainer, doesn’t it? Every year, around Mother’s Day, television schedules, streaming platforms and cinemas all try to bombard us with movies about Mums. It makes some kind of sense, I suppose, that on the specific weekend when we are encouraged to celebrate motherhood, maternal figures, and those that gave us birth, we could settle down and watch something nurturing with the special, authoritative ladies in our lives.

The trouble is, they always seem to be of a very particular type. You know which movies I’m referring to – the schmaltzy, overly-saccharine, rose-tinted views of women that parent, like Terms Of Endearment, Stepmom, or Steel Magnolias. I like musical cinema as much as the next person, but I have no intention of sitting through The Sound Of Music with my own offspring on Mothering Sunday.

Sally Field Overcame Sexism to Become a Hollywood Legend

18 March 2016 | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Sally Field currently has a little indie that's turning into a giant critical hit, and now the Hello, My Name Is Doris star is chatting with People and Entertainment Weekly Editorial Director Jess Cagle to reminisce on her decades-long career as an actress on stage and screen. The two-time Oscar winner reflects on what inspired her as a young actor, telling Cagle that growing up female in the 1950s felt repressive at the time, but ultimately allowed her to become a better performer. "I lived in an environment where emotions and all the colors that women are were really not allowed at the dinner table, »

17 March 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It's been a long time since Shirley MacLaine has felt sexy. The Terms of Endearment Oscar winner, 81, sat down with People and Entertainment Weekly Editorial Director Jess Cagle during a Sirius Xm town hall for a rapid-fire Q&A game called The Cagle Exercise - and MacLaine revealed more than a few intimate details about herself. From the movie she's seen the most times (Inherit the Wind) to what she's really bad at ("Patience! I have no patience"), the actress held nothing back while in the hot seat. So when does MacLaine feel sexiest? "I forgot," she tells Cagle as »

Posterized: Hello, her name is... Sally Field

11 March 2016 8:00 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

M'lynn. Gidget. Norma Rae. The Flying Nun. Sybil. Edna Spalding. Mary Todd Lincoln. Mrs Gump. We know her by many names but the one we'll always love best is "Sally Field," perfectly stage-name appropriate for instant recall and audience adoration... and also her real name since birth. 

Though she's been famous for literally half a century (!) she hasn't always been properly appreciated... a common fate for stars whose work looks effortless and who excel in "light" genres like dramedies and romantic comedies. But we like her. We really really like her. Don't you?

Her biggest hits: Forrest Gump, Mrs Doubtfire, Hooper, Lincoln, Steel Magnolias, and literally every film she made with Burt Reynolds from 1977-1980 -- audiences couldn't get enough of them together back then. Most frequent co-stars: Burt Reynolds (4), Jeff Bridges, Michael Caine, Dom de Luise, Tom Hanks, Ed Harris, and Tommy Lee Jones (2). Awards haul: 3 Emmys, 2 Oscars, 1 SAG, »

The Best Picture Oscar winners that had sequels

25 February 2016 11:50 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

More Best Picture Oscar winners have had sequels than you may think. This lot, in fact...

There’s still an element of snobbery where sequels to certain films is concerned. Whereas it’s now almost compulsory to greenlight a blockbuster with a view of a franchise in mind, it’s hard to think of most Best Picture Oscar winners being made with a follow-up in mind. Yet in perhaps a surprising number of cases, a sequel – or in the case of Rocky, lots of sequels – have followed.

These cases, in fact…

All Quiet On The Western Front (1930)

Followed by: The Road Back

Don’t be fooled into thinking sequels for prestigious movies are a relatively new phenomenon. Lewis Milestone’s 1930 war epic All Quiet On The Western Front, and its brutal account of World War I, is still regarded as something of a classic. A solid box office success, »

Celebrate Dolly Parton's 70th Birthday With 10 Heartwarming Stories About Her Life

19 January 2016 2:10 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If you're a Dolly Parton fan, you probably have no shortage of reasons to love her. She's a great singer, of course, and proved her worth on the big screen with hits like 9 to 5, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas and Steel Magnolias. However, you can also love Dolly for just being herself, and perhaps uniquely among other celebrities, she's offered a lot of herself through stories about her life that reflect that there's a grounded, level-headed person beneath all that makeup and hair.

Happy 70th to Dolly Parton, the most approachable of unapproachable superstars

19 January 2016 11:02 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Happy 70th birthday to that life-affirming, effervescent, and consummate pro Dolly Parton. The legendary songstress' career is astonishing on every level, and the woman herself seems to treat her success as a wild and hilarious lark that she never, ever takes for granted. It's hard to know where to begin when toasting such a pop culture mainstay, so I'll be jumping around her career with underrated and unexpectedly fantastic moments and videos to commemorate her awesomeness. From her songwriting to her singing to her acting to her endless charisma, Dolly Parton has been the most approachable of our unapproachable superstars. Here are just a few more reasons she's divine. 1. She will astound you with her touching, Oscar-nominated jam "Travelin' Thru" 2. "Bargain Store" is one of her quaintest, most poignant songs. 3. This is, inarguably, the most perfect picture of a human being. 4. What could be more relatable than telling other ladies »

The Not Without My Daughter Problem: How a Sally Field Movie Became an Iranian-American Headache

11 January 2016 1:06 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

By all indications, Not Without My Daughter should be a forgettable movie. It was a major motion picture when it premiered — 25 years ago today — starring one of the most-adored actors of the era, Sally Field, coming off the hit Steel Magnolias. But its $15 million opening weekend barely made a dent in the box office; it was largely critically panned for its Islamophobic undertones; and in re-airings, it could easily be mistaken for a Lifetime movie with a timely political pitch: Woman escapes from abusive Iranian husband, scary foreign country, and the evil clutches of Islam. In the larger cultural imagination, the film was consigned to oblivion. But Not Without My Daughter has its own curious legacy. Over the years, it’s been shown in schools, re-aired on television, and notoriously played in Paris the night before the 1998 USA versus Iran World Cup match. One journalist responded to »
