Sticking up for the unpopular kids in geek TV’s playground

24 July 2014 3:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Lori Grimes to Wesley Crusher, Den Of Geek's writers defend some of TV fandoms’ least-loved fictional characters…

Feature

Warning: contains spoilers for The Walking Dead season three, Breaking Bad season five, and Battlestar Galactica.

The force of geek love is strong. So strong, in fact, it’s basically a Newton’s Third Law of Motion kind of deal. Each instance of geek love leads to the simultaneous, opposite force of geek hatred. Wherever a TV character is adored, another will be despised. For every fan of Angel, there’s a critic of Riley Finn. For every Rick and Shane fan, there’s someone shouting “boo” at Lori Grimes. For every Captain Picard nut, there’s a person scribbling devil horns and moustaches on pictures of Wesley Crusher. Geeks love and geeks hate. It is known.

As a great mind once said though, “hate leads to suffering”. That’s why »

Blu-ray Review: Teen Horror Comedy ‘Vampire Academy’ Fine for Fans

19 May 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Mark Waters’ “Vampire Academy” is one of the more toothless attempts to make a “fetch” bloodsucker movie for the middle-high school crowd, to use a phrase from his revered teen comedy “Mean Girls”. Based on the six book series written by Rachelle Mead (which has sold 8 million copies worldwide) “Vampire Academy” the movie tackles teenage friendship in the chaos of high school with the same type of Waters’ “I’m not like a regular mom, I’m a cool mom” distance, but with even softer gloves.

That the movie boasts it was adapted by Dan Waters, who scripted “Heathers,” shows that the real shock is missing - either Waters isn’t writing with as provocative a pen, or the images of a shocking high school have changed.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

Without the expectations of a “Mean Girls” or even “Heathers,” “Vampire Academy” is passable on its plain, demographic-centered shenanigans where a »

A “Sabrina” Reunion for “Melissa & Joey,” Gwen Stefani Joins “The Voice” and Fox Cancels “Almost Human”

30 April 2014 4:15 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

News

It’s official, Gwen Stefani will be a judge on The Voice next season, replacing Christina Aguilera, who is pregnant. Aguilera will return to The Voice next season.

We have the first cancellation leading in to the May upfronts as Fox has let the axe fall on the futuristic, hunktastic buddy cop show Almost Human. While ratings were good enough to merit a second season, apparently there was no room for the show with so many other dramas renewed and three strong drama pilots. I’m a little sad to think that we’ll never see Michael Ealy ask Karl Urban where he can stick his fingers without invading personal space.

My TV’s going to miss these faces.

Melissa Joan Hart Shows Off Bikini Body After Losing 40 Pounds

9 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Melissa Joan Hart shared a photo of herself in a bikini on Instagram, showing off her new slim body after losing 40 lbs. on Nutrisystem.

Melissa Joan Hart Lost 40 lbs. After Baby

Hart, best know for her years on Sabrina the Teenage Witch, 37, gained a reported 60 lbs. in 2012 when she was pregnant with her third son, Tucker, who was born in September of that year. While she slowly shed the baby weight on her own, Hart says that she waited until she had bonded with her baby son to focus on losing weight. Once she was ready, Hart signed on as a Nutrisystem spokeswoman and says she lost the 40 lbs. eating healthy and exercising regularly.

“For me it was important to bond with my child as opposed to lose the weight. So I waited until I was ready and I knew I had the time. And I made it a priority »

Meet the 2014 Tribeca Filmmakers #9: David Lascher Gets Inside the Mind of a Mentally Troubled Teen in 'Sister'

9 April 2014 7:58 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

David Lascher may be remembered by his fans for his numerous appearances on 90s TV sitcoms, but the actor now comes to Tribeca as a writer/director with a more poignant and personal touch in his family drama "Sister," starring Scott Reid and Barbara Hershey. Tell us about yourself. I have been an actor for over twenty years. Most notable roles include "Blossom," "White Squall," "Sabrina The Teenage Witch," and the Nickelodeon series "Hey Dude." Currently recurring on "Melissa and Joey" for ABC Family. My writing/producing partner, Todd Camhe, and I wrote the script for "Sister" over 6 years ago. It is a very personal story based on characters and circumstances from my own life. This is the first film I have written and directed and premiering at Tribeca is a dream come true. I am told your first film is always special and "Sister" is so meaningful to me »

Clueless: What the cast did after hit teen comedy

11 March 2014 10:03 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Iggy Azalea paid tribute to cult teen classic Clueless in her recent music video for 'Fancy'.

The Australian rapper appears as Alicia Silverstone's iconic character Cher in the video, which was released online last week.

As stars continue to be inspired by the movie almost 20 years on, we take a fond look back at the cast and what they went on to do after Clueless:

Alicia Silverstone (Cher Horowitz)

Alicia Silverstone played seemingly shallow socialite Cher - famously branded "a virgin who can't drive" and "hymenally challenged" - in the high-school adaptation of Jane Austen's Emma.

Prior to Clueless, Silverstone's credits included ABC comedy-drama The Wonder Years and a number of Aerosmith videos. The film propelled her to further fame, and she went on to star in Joel Schumacher's 1997 movie Batman & Robin, crime-comedy Excess Baggage (1997) with Benicio Del Toro and Christopher Walken, and romantic drama Blast from the Past (1999) opposite Brendan Fraser. »

SXSW Film Review: ‘Two Step’

9 March 2014 10:31 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A slow-burn thriller with rich Texas flavor, “Two Step” reps a promising feature debut for writer-director Alex R. Johnson. This character-driven picture takes its time marinating in quiet conversations and Austin atmosphere, making the sudden jolts of violence all the more shocking when they land. The combination of low budget, unconventional approach and solid but largely unknown cast will likely limit the pic’s theatrical engagements to niche play, but a cult following could be in the offing, and crime-movie aficionados will want to seek it out on any available platform.

There’s already something haunted about reserved college student James (Skyy Moore) when we meet him on the way to visit his elderly grandmother. He’s barely set foot in her house before she passes away, leaving him everything she has, including the modest home. With nowhere else to go and no friends in the area — he hails from El Paso, »

Feature Carley Tauchert 11 Mar 2014 - 07:00

Carley's 90s kids TV look-back comes to a Melissa Joan Hart classic, Sabrina The Teenage Witch...

“Sabrina, we have something to tell you. You see there are two realms, the natural and the supernatural and it turns out the immutable laws of physics...You’re a witch”

1996 saw a revival of big action, big budget movies taking the top spots at the box office (Independence Day, Twister, Mission: Impossible and The Rock), the Spice Girls making their mark on the UK pop charts as another, Take That, decided to call it a day.

In the September of that year, ABC began to air a supernatural sitcom which would go on for seven seasons, span a series of merchandise and introduce the TV world's best talking cat ever.
