"American Horror Story" 1.10 Recap: A History of Violet

8 December 2011 12:12 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Well there we have it! After a few weeks of teasing, American Horror Story put it all out on the table last night in regards to one of the central characters' fates, confirming some of our suspicions and giving us even more cause to wonder if Anyone will be alive by the time the season ends in two weeks (my money's on Marcy - she's a scrapper!).

The episode also tied up a few more loose ends and filled in some more chinks in the masonry involving Larry's burns and his missing ghost family.

Let's join them at the cutest li'l tea party in Hell to discuss, shall we?

The episode begins - as all episodes should, really - with a close-up of an enormous baked ham that has been punctured all over with spears of pineapple and maraschino cherry. It is like a juicy, delicious Saint Sebastien. Seriously - »

John Waters’ Top Ten Films Of 2011

5 December 2011 7:59 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Waters has been labelled with the nicknames ‘Pope of Trash’ and ‘Prince of Puke’ because of his tendency to shock viewers with the outrageous content of his films. He is perhaps best known for Hairspray and Serial Mom, both of which reached the status of ‘cult classic’ during the late eighties and early nineties.

There are some surprising choices on his list of the best movies of 2011. See if you agree with the moustachioed, subversive thinker:

1 The Skin I Live In (Pedro Almodóvar) A dark, twisted, beautiful, and, yes, funny shocker from the greatest director in the world. God bless you, Pedro Almodóvar!

Mildred Pierce (Todd Haynes) This elegantly shot, pitch-perfect made-for-tv melodrama makes everyone who watches secretly yearn to be a woman with issues. The best period film in decades—period.

Justin Bieber: Never Say Never (Jon M. Chu) I’m not kidding. A well-made doc that proves the Bieb was a child prodigy. »

"The Playboy Club" Recap 102: "Straightening Up the House"

27 September 2011 2:37 PM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Welcome back to another episode of The Playboy Club! I have to say, I spoke with series creator, Chad Hodge this morning and he's got a lot of great things planned for the show; for the gay characters in particular. I'll save most of what I have to say for the interview post but I do want to tell you all that his vision is very different than the one in place for Mad Men and I hope you'll give him the benefit of the doubt and trust that the level of camp combined with a "fantasy land" for the bunnies was intentional. Stop getting so hung up on the decade and its aesthetics and let's concentrate on the fact that it took me three and a half hours to just get my notes done for this recap. While we're on the subject, I should probably also let you know »

I'm Linking As Fast As I Can

The Hairpin has a huge piece on Ava Gardner's career, femme fatale posing, and storied romantic life. I always always forget she was married to Mickey Rooney because it just seems so wrong.

Jonah Hill Wielding Pitchfork?

9 June 2011 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Not nearly enough people saw Cyrus, last year's brilliant deadpan 'indie' comedy starring John C Reilly, Catherine Keener, Marisa Tomei and Jonah Hill. But those that did ought to be excited to hear that creative team Mark and Jay Duplass may soon be reuniting with Hill for Pitchfork.Cyrus was the first high-profile gig for the writer/director brothers, known for so-called 'mumblecore' festival favourites The Puffy Chair and Baghead. Like their upcoming Jeff Who Lives at Home, it revolved around a guy with a weirdly-close relationship with his mother, and Pitchfork looks to continue that loose formula, in that's it's a story about the mom of an indie rocker who starts seeking out the interbloggers who've been badmouthing him on the web. Hill's role would be as the primary focus of Mom's ire, and for Mom herself, said to be a meaty role, the Duplass Brothers are apparently keen on Susan Sarandon. »

Black Swan DVD & Blu-ray Release: Mothers only a mother could love…

16 May 2011 1:33 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Mothers are like bum holes – we’ve all got one. For the most part they are a routine fact of everyday life, occasionally embarrassing, sometimes funny and on the odd occasion down right horrific

This week sees the DVD and Blu-ray release of Darren Aronofsky’ s ballet opus Black Swan, a critical and commercial success that had audiences squirming in their seats with a unique blend of psychological horror and gory body shock.  Out on 16th May Black Swan is genuinely a must see movie. Natalie Portman won the best actress Oscar for her role as Nina Sayers, a talented young ballerina feeling the pressure of the biggest role of her career, not helped by her overbearing and ever so creepy stage mum played by Barbara Hershey. Hershey’s great performance is integral to Portman’s onscreen melt down and so to celebrate the films DVD release Thn have been »

Mother's Day: 7 unexpected movies to watch with mom

3 May 2011 12:03 PM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Most Mother's Day movie recommendation lists consist of tried-and-true tearjerkers like "Steel Magnolias," "Terms of Endearment" and even "Dirty Dancing." Feel-good, two-tissue flicks designed to leave everyone feeling just a little bit better about the world.

Here at Zap2it, though, we thought we'd go in a different direction. Instead of the usual suspects (goodbye, "Beaches") we suggest 7 movies (enough for a week-long film fest) that, although they all feature strong moms, will not leave you with that happy Hallmark feeling.

1. "The Bad Seed": Rhoda -- a blonde, pigtailed doll of a girl -- has a knack for lying and killing. Not necessarily in that order.

2. "Mommy Dearest": "No more wire hangers!" Faye Dunaway channels a (possibly exaggeratedly) abusive Joan Crawford.

3. "Mildred Pierce": Sorry Kate Winslet, but we're recommending the 1945 original in which Joan Crawford (see above) plays a mom who will do anything for selfish, borderline sociopathic daughter Ann Blyth. »

Top 5 Mother's Day Flicks

3 April 2011 7:28 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Spending the day relaxing at home? Looking for something to throw on the telly? Look no further as below is a list of the Top 5 flicks for Mother's Day (er, they all have mother's in them, at least).  Number 5: Mother's Day (1980)  For hardcore momma's only. This 1980 Troma Team release is a trashy classic about two brother's that'll do anything for mummy dearest.  Number 4: Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991) Is Sarah Connor the most bad-ass mother in the history of cinema? Quite possibly. This classic action flick shows us the reason why Mother's can be so protective...there might just be a future-born cyborg coming to kill you. But probably not.  Number 3: Serial Mom (1994)  Kathleen Turner nails it as the ultimate killer matriarch in this black comedy from director John Waters. If you can find a copy, give it a spin. Although you might be a little afraid of your mom afterwards. »

Top 7 Psycho Ladies in Film

3 February 2011 5:42 PM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

We start the Top 7. You finish the Top 10.

With this week’s The Roommate taking the cat fight to the big screen, it only seemed fitting to honor some of the… crazier characters that make film worth watching. You all know the ones that I’m talking about. Hollywood gives a number of paper thin excuses and pop psychology cliches to explain their behavior, but deep down, which one of us really cares about the why? Aren’t we all just watching for that moment when they snap? Whatever your reasons are for enjoying the psycho lady sub-genre, there’s no judgment here. I’ll take care of the first seven and be sure to chime in with your votes for eight through ten. Perhaps you can include some classics from before I was born.

7. Single White Female (1992)

Recap: Allie’s (Bridget Fonda) life takes a turn for the worse »
