Exclusive Portrait: Anjelica Huston at the Chicago Humanities Festival

27 November 2014 5:58 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The famed Oscar-winning actress Anjelica Huston comes from a lineage of Hollywood royalty – her father John was a legendary director and her grandfather Walter was a noted actor. She brought all of that history to the Chicago Humanities Festival, where she was featured at the Closing Event on November 14th, 2014, at the First United Methodist Church at The Chicago Temple.

Huston was there to discuss her second memoir, “Watch Me,” her followup to “A Story Told Lately.” Through both books she chronicles her rise from enchanted childhood to model and actress. “Watch Me” focuses on her stardom years, including her relationship with Jack Nicholson and her Best Supporting Actress Oscar for “Prizzi’s Honor” – directed by her father John Huston. After that honor, Huston made several memorable films, including “Crimes and Misdemeanors,” “The Addams Family,” “The Witches” and “The Darjeeling Limited.” She also recently was a featured cast member in the TV show, »

The movie characters who scared us as children

5 November 2014 3:42 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Jaws from James Bond

One movie character who scared me as a child was Jaws, the shiny-toothed James Bond villain. Those silver teeth freaked me out, big time – I remember the early sequence from The Spy Who Loved Me was particularly chilling: Jaws lures a defenceless older man into a trap, and proceeds to bite into his neck, killing him. While we're shown no violence, the whole scene terrified me: the way Jaws walked slowly towards the man in a knowing, menacing way, and the idea of him simply biting the man to death (though at least he had the courtesy to stun the victim first).

Being bitten by Jaws isn't like being bitten by a vampire – he drinks no blood. Instead, he just seems to sink those artificial teeth into flesh and tear a hole big enough to cause fatal bleeding. Whenever I'd watch that scene, it made me deeply uncomfortable, »

StreamFix: 'It's Always Sunny,' 'Airplane!' and 14 More New Streams on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and Crackle

4 November 2014 2:17 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

StreamFix has gotten your latest updates on new Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and Crackle streams. Check out these titles before they inevitably go back into the endless interweb secret vault.    Netflix "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" (Season 9) I'd hate to burden you with a reminder about injustice during this Election Day, but it must be noted: It is insane that Kaitlin Olson has gone eight seasons without garnering an Emmy nomination for this show. Have you heard this woman dry-heave? It is sensational.  "Total Recall" Did you know? Arnold Schwarzenegger > Colin Farrell, at least in terms of dystopian thriller heroism. I wouldn't want to see Arnold attempt Farrell's role in "Saving Mr. Banks" or anything like that though. "Altman" This documentary gives an incisive, insightful look at Robert Altman, whose best movie is not "Nashville" or "Gosford Park" or "Mash" or even "The Player." Nope. It is "McCabe and Mrs. Miller, »

Robert De Niro and Robert Pattinson movie pulled at last minute

3 November 2014 11:12 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Just as shooting was set to begin, Robert De Niro and Robert Pattinson's new movie has been shut down...

This doesn't happen on reasonably high profile projects at the last minute very often. Just as filming was about to get started on the film Idol's Eye, a new heist thriller, the plug has been pulled by its backer, Benaroya Pictures.

In a statement released by the company, it said that "due to the criteria for financing not being met by producers, Benaroya Pictures has formally decided to discontinue financing the motion picture titled Idol's Eye". Bugger. We just said all of that in the first paragraph.

The film was set to star Robert De Niro, Robert Pattinson and Rachel Weisz, and production was all set to begin in Toronto. De Niro signed up in May, once the money fell into place. The problem, according to Deadline, is that the »

Scott Mills and Joanne Clifton fifth couple to leave Strictly Come Dancing

2 November 2014 12:00 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Scott Mills and his professional partner Joanne Clifton have become the fifth couple to be eliminated from this year's Strictly Come Dancing.

The Radio 1 DJ departed after landing in the dance-off this week with TV presenter Alison Hammond and her partner Aljaz Skorjanec.

The couples came bottom in the Halloween Week rankings, after the judges' scores and viewer votes were combined.

Both pairs reprised their routines from last night in a bid to impress the judges, with Mills and Clifton performing their foxtrot to 'The Addams Family Theme'. They scored 21 for the routine last night (November 1).

Hammond and Skorjanec then performed their American Smooth to Kate Bush's 'Wuthering Heights', which earned them 26 points on Saturday.

Craig Revel Horwood chose to save Hammond and Skorjanec, saying: "I would like to save the couple that threw the kitchen sink at the routine - extra turns and all sorts of wafting. »

Strictly Come Dancing 2014: week 6 as it happened

2 November 2014 11:59 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The muscle count is lower after Thom Evanss shock departure, but there were plenty of other treats in this weeks Halloween-themed show

7.59pm GMT

Oh Scott. You know I love you, but it was time to go. In the immortal words of George Michael you should probably never dance again, cos Scott Mills feet have got no rhythm. But dont listen to him, I thought you were Ace.

So thats it for Week 6! Only 10 couples remain, and the competition is definitely hotting up. Ill be back next Saturday for more dancing, so join me from 6.30pm, unless youre out doing firework things.

7.56pm GMT

Its judgement time Craig saves Alison and Aljaz, as does Darcey. Bruno agrees, but Len would have voted for Scott, because his foxtrot was more foxtrotty than Alison and Aljazs. But it doesnt matter, and Aljazs breeches live to cling another day.

7.53pm GMT

Whatever you think of Scott, »

13 Perfect Reactions to Halloween by Wednesday Addams

31 October 2014 12:11 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I'm sick of every list of classic movie heroes featuring folks like Atticus Finch, Indiana Jones, James Bond, and Forrest Gump. The real cinematic hero of all time is Wednesday Addams, the black-braided superhero of "The Addams Family" and "Addams Family Values" who owned everyone with deadpan one-liners and legendary apathy. It's Halloween, which means it's time to summon Wednesday's wisdom as we get through this wretched holiday. Here are 13 perfect Wednesday reactions to 13 unavoidable Halloween predicaments.  »

The 31 Best Comedies on Netflix Right Now

23 October 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Who doesn't love to laugh? Whether your taste runs to R-rated raunch, classic yuks or witty British humor, you'll find something hilarious to stream on Netflix.

Right now, there are movies starring Robin Williams, Walter Matthau, Jack Black, Goldie Hawn and a nice selection of films showcasing the comedy chops of Joan Cusack. (Availability subject to change, so get streaming now!)

1. "The Addams Family" (1991) PG-13

Everyone's favorite macabre family is wonderfully portrayed by Anjelica Huston as Morticia, Raul Julia as Gomez, Christopher Lloyd as Uncle Fester and Christina Ricci as Wednesday. Spooky fun, just in time for Halloween.

2. "The Bad News Bears" (1976) PG

Walter Matthau is a grumpy hoot as a reluctant little league coach, Tatum O'Neal is great as the tomboy pitcher and the Bears (including a young Jackie Earle Haley) are perfectly, awfully bad.

3. "Bernie" (2011) PG-13

Jack Black stars in the real-life story of a mortician who ends »

Doctor Who, Season 8, Episode 8, “Mummy on the Orient Express

Written by Jamie Mathieson

Directed by Paul Wilmshurst

Doctor Who, Season 8, Episode 9, “Flatline”

Written by Jamie Mathieson

Directed by Douglas Mackinnon

Airs Saturdays at 9pm Et on BBC America

These weeks, on Doctor Who: Clara gets comfortable lying, the Doctor enjoys not knowing, and it’s a bad time to be a red shirt

In their reviews of “The Caretaker” and “Mummy on the Orient Express”, the fantastic Tom and Lorenzo postulated that Clara has become addicted to traveling with the Doctor, showing many of the signs of addiction. While this is absolutely the case, and could certainly be part of where showrunner Steven Moffat is planning to take the rest of the season, with “Flatline”, another aspect of Clara and the Doctor’s arcs this season finally becomes clear—Clara is becoming more like the shifty, callous late Eleventh and now Twelfth Doctors, »
