My So-Called Life: where are they now?

24 August 2014 10:34 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Oscar-winning to Homeland and more, here's what the cast of My So-Called Life have been up to over the past 2 decades...

Twenty years has passed since we were first introduced to the characters of My So-Called Life, twenty years! Where has the time gone? And more importantly when did I get so old?

While most of you won’t really care too much what I’ve been up to since the show finished, let’s take a look at what the actors have been up to in the years since the cancellation of what is frankly the greatest teen TV drama ever.

Claire Danes (Angela Chase)

After breaking out in My So-Called Life, Danes focused on her film career first with a leading role in 1995’s Little Women and then supporting roles in smaller but interesting films like Home For The Holidays, How to Make An American Quilt and »

Requiem for a Dream

17 August 2014 10:00 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Darren Aronofsky’s hyperventilating portrait of drug addiction focuses on a group of Coney Island inhabitants each with their own down-spiraling horror story. Relentlessly grim, the film is shot and edited in a speedfreak frenzy with Clint Mansell’s slash and burn musical score egging on each character’s fast track to hell. Ellen Burstyn was nominated for an Oscar for her harrowing performance as an elderly woman hooked on prescription pills.

We’re featuring two trailers for this Tfh commentary because Darren has a personal story to share about meeting Aronofsky!

'The Calling' International Trailer Starring Susan Sarandon

15 August 2014 5:48 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After starring in the lighthearted summer comedy Tammy, Susan Sarandon takes on the thriller genre in a new international trailer for The Calling. The actress stars as Detective Inspector Hazel Micaleff in Fort Dundas, Ontario, a sleepy town where not much happens, until one day when Hazel discovers the corpse of an elderly woman who was brutally murdered.

Ellen Burstyn, Topher Grace and Donald Sutherland round out an all-star cast in this thriller from director Jason Stone, in theaters August 29.

Despite a bad back, a reliance on painkillers and the occasional drink to take the edge off, Detective Inspector Hazel Micallef (Academy Award winner Susan Sarandon, Best Actress, Dead Men Walking, 1995; Cloud Atlas, The Big Wedding, Snitch) leads a tranquil existence sharing a home with her elderly mother, Emily (Academy Award winner Ellen Burstyn, Best Actress, Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore, 1974; The Fountain, Requiem for a Dream), in Fort Dundas, »

Confessions of an Opium Eater

15 August 2014 1:38 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Next week at Tfh features a trio of trippy films gathered together under the banner "Just Say No". They include Requiem for a Dream, The Trip, and the subject of today's Saturday Matinee, Confessions of an Opium Eater.  

Producer Albert Zugsmith was a consummate exploitationist, launching his career in 1952 with the berserk red-scare screed, Invasion USA starring Gerald Mohr and Dan O’Herlihy. He would spend the next twenty years rattling off a memorably lurid series of titles stoked by the hottest of hot-button topics, including teenage sex (High School Confidential), collegiate sex (Sex Kittens go to College) and interracial sex (Night of the Quarter Moon). There’s a pattern here if you look real close.

An amiable self-made millionaire who seemed to thrive on the low-down pleasures found on the other side of the tracks, Zugsmith’s first directorial efforts (College Confidential, The Private Lives of Adam and Eve »

Noah Blu-Ray Review

29 July 2014 9:20 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Darren Aronofsky at the helm, Noah was always going to be a Biblically ambitious sight to behold, and a vividly strange one at that. Creative liberties are one thing, but did anyone expect the man behind Requiem For A Dream and The Fountain to adhere strictly to the Bible’s cut and dry storytelling? Aronofsky’s retelling of “Noah’s Ark” blends elements of Lord Of The Rings with God’s bleaker trials and tribulations, getting a wee bit darker than I remember Noah’s adventure, but stunning camerawork and artistic attention make use of massive color palates much like Andy Warhol might – but a Catholic school special, this is not. Either I zoned out when my Catholicism teacher detailed how gargantuan rock monsters helped Noah fight off an invading army of dissidents, or Aronofsky decided that religion needed a jolt of Hollywood magic.

Beauty Break: "I like thinking about the red dress..."

22 July 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

50 years ago today Marnie (1964) hit movie theaters and, as quite a divisive picture in the Hitchock filmography, ended one of the most beloved perfect runs that any filmmaker has accomplished in the history of ever  (1958-1962: North By Northwest, Vertigo, Psycho, The Birds).

So Marnie has a bad rep, posts about her don't get you riled up like other Hitchcock fests, and she's underseen today. Not to lovingly kick that crazy bitch while she's down but it occurred to me the other day when she popped into my head that Marnie's color phobia means she would never be able to see an Almodóvar picture. Her loss. And she would be absolutely terrified by Sara Goldfarb addictions in Requiem for a Dream. (I mean more terrified than the rest of us) 

I like thinking about the red dress. And the television and your father."

Wilfred, Ep. 4.03: “Loyalty” isn’t always so easy when it comes to family

4 July 2014 12:47 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Wilfred, Season 4: Episode 3 – “Loyalty”

Written by Keith Heisler

Directed by Randall Einhorn

Airs Wednesday nights at 10 on Fxx

While Wilfred doesn’t always take its titles head-on and through to their natural conclusions in the space of 20 minutes, “Loyalty” is an episode that manages to balance the ongoing mystery plot of the series’ final season with strikingly honest commentary on the concept of loyalty. This is done, of course, in a very Wilfred way, so as to not come off heavy-handed or preachy. Thus, we also get a running C-plot like Wilfred’s addiction to cuddling and his relationship with a certain toy that he eventually uses not in the way it is meant to be. This is probably the kind of stuff viewers who occasionally tune into to Wilfred enjoy seeing instead of the Wilfred mythology, which is fair enough. It’s certainly grotesquely funny (and has tons »

Scared Stupid: Marlon Wayans talks A Haunted House 2 and the Spoof Genre

29 June 2014 6:52 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Flickering Myth co-editor Luke Owen sits down with Marlon Wayans to discuss his upcoming movie, A Haunted House 2

The original movie was panned by many critics and its sequel, A Haunted House 2, hasn’t fared much better. But that hasn’t stopped Marlon Wayans (Scary Movie) from producing his brand of humour for his audience.

Flickering Myth co-editor Luke Owen sat down with Marlon Wayans to discuss A Haunted House 2 as well as the spoof genre in general and how its changed over time.

Tell me about A Haunted House 2.

It basically picks up where the first one left off, Malcolm escapes and now he has a new family and they move into a new house and the same old stuff happens. Spooky stuff starts to happen and there is a creepy doll. And his crazy ex-girlfriend moves in next door!

Why did you make A Haunted House 2? »

Video: A young Jennifer Connelly auditions for 'Labyrinth'

23 June 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Today, Jennifer Connelly is a Hollywood A-lister: She won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar in 2001 for A Beautiful Mind and has starred in a number of other critically acclaimed films, including Requiem for a Dream and Blood Diamond.

Back in the 1980s, however, well before achieving said A-list status, Connelly was a little-known actress. One major film that put he on the map: Jim Henson’s 1986 film Labyrinth, also famously starring David Bowie.

The film tells the story of Sarah (Connelly), a 15-year-old who wishes her baby half-brother, Toby (Toby Froud), away to Jareth the Goblin King (Bowie). Sarah, who »

Exclusive Interview with ‘Stoplight’ Director Eric Stanze

16 June 2014 8:59 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Eric Stanze is someone that I have known for some time now, maybe almost a decade. He has always been someone I have looked up to when it comes to independent filmmaking. The Scare Game, The Fine Art and Savage Harvest were the first truly independent films I rented on VHS. Stanze’s films introduced me to the world of B-Movie.com which was run by Salt City Home Video, a company that is still in business today under Sub Rosa Studios, which left quite an impression with me in my formative teenage years as a budding horror film fiend.

In this day & age, independent genre films seem to be getting more buzz than what you see at the mulitplex. This is good news for Eric as he has worked very hard for his art and the time is now for him to benefit from it. This is just my »
