Anne Frank: The Whole Story (2001– )
“I made a mistake by trying to make a comparison that was completely wrong,” he told the outlet on Tuesday evening. “I don’t even know how to explain it.”

“I was trying to make a point about the heinous acts that Assad had made against his own people last week using chemical weapons and gas,” Spicer, 45, told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Tuesday evening. “And frankly, I mistakenly used an inappropriate, insensitive reference to the Holocaust. I apologize. It was a mistake to do that.”

Spicer made the controversial comments during his Tuesday press briefing, where he condemned the Syrian government’s chemical weapons attack that killed more than 80 civilians last week. The remarks come amid the Jewish holiday of Passover.
“We didn’t even use chemical weapons in World War II,” Spicer said. “You had a — you know someone as despicable
That’s likely less than the staggering amount of video gushing from the fire hoses of YouTube or Netflix. But Amazon Video Direct content partners say the program represents a noteworthy new platform that is letting them generate incremental revenue. And for the first time, the e-commerce behemoth has released the list of the best-performing movie titles, TV shows and digital partners the service — which Amazon is rewarding with extra cash doled out from a $1 million pool on a monthly basis, through its “Avd Stars” program.

The film is a transition story for the two main characters. Darwan (Kingsley) is a Indian Sikh who gained political asylum in America shortly before September 11th. He is a driving instructor, and encounters a new student in Wendy (Patricia Clarkson). The woman is going through a bitter divorce, and is using the potential of learning to drive to gain more freedom. The two disparate souls help each other in essential ways, and at the same time weather the storm of some extreme life changes.

Joan Rivers Dies At 81
Rivers’ daughter, Melissa Rivers, who worked closely with her mother, was by her side and released a statement announcing the sad news, thanking fans for their support. “My mother’s greatest joy in life was to make people laugh. Although that is difficult to do right now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon,” Melissa wrote.
Celebrities Remember Joan Rivers On Twitter
Rivers, 81, was steadily working until her death, whether performing stand-up comedy or dishing out various zingers on E’s Fashion Police. Rivers recently appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers to promote her newest book, Diary of a Mad Diva, which was released in July.
During the interview, Rivers told non-stop jokes, while also recounting her ‘Grandma week’ trip to Italy with grandson Cooper.
EW was on the scene as Rivers summoned her trademark inappropriate humor to make even the seasoned Letterman blanch by making a joke about losing out on a Depends commercial to June Allyson, quipping that the ’50s star would shill the adult diapers by saying, “Hi, I’m June Allyson. While I’m talking to you, I’m taking a dump.
The two most remarkable film books of last year were both about the ways – mostly craven and temporising – that the American cinema responded to the rise of Nazism: The Collaboration: Hollywood's Pact with Hitler by Ben Urwand and Hollywood and Hitler 1933-1939 by Thomas Doherty. By a useful coincidence, the first important movie history so far this year, and likely to prove one of the most memorable, is Mark Harris's Five Came Back. His complementary work picks up Urband's and Doherty's studies at that crucial point where the bombs fall on Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941 and Hollywood rolls up its sleeves and swaps the diplomatic velvet glove for a patriotic steel fist. As in his impressive first book, Scenes from a Revolution, a long, detailed study of five 1967 movies that
There's an unsettling sort of deja vu to be had in watching this strange and saccharine film, based on the 2005 young-adult bestseller by Australian writer Markus Zusak. I have not read the book, but the film looks like a creepy new version of the Anne Frank story, with the leading character recast as a brave and pretty little Aryan girl; the brutal reality of the Holocaust is not dwelt upon. Sophie Nélisse plays Liesel, a young girl in 1930s Germany who is left to kindly but harassed foster parents Hans (Geoffrey Rush) and Rosa (Emily Watson) by her fugitive Communist mother. It is this trio's courage and victimhood that take centre-stage. Liesel is forced to join the Hitler Youth, but is secretly disgusted by the Nazis' book-burning displays and conceives
I spent all 130 minutes of The Book Thief wondering who exactly its target audience is supposed to be. It's based on a bestselling young-adult novel set in Nazi Germany, but it has a cheesy, saccharine Lifetime Channel feel, like it's one of those made-up art movies the characters in animated sitcoms go and see, the wives weeping, the men all wincing and wishing it were Skyfall.
It's about Liesel (Sophie Nelisse), the orphaned 12-year-old daughter of German communist activists, taken in by a middle-aged couple in 1938. She and the smitten boy next door Rudy (Nico Liersch) join the Hitler Youth and goose-step around town burning books and fetishising der Führer as little twinges of conscience and doubt slowly begin to manifest themselves. Then her adoptive parents Hans and Rosa (Geoffrey Rush,
As far as honorable mentions, one of my all-time favorite horror moments is in the insane asylum at the end of Psycho when Norman has completely become Mother. As the scene is very short, we kept it off the list and simply gave it an Hm.

An impressive array of actors -- Jessica Lange, Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Frances Conroy, Denis O'Hare, Lily Rabe, Gabourey Sidibe, Evan Peters, and Taissa Farmiga, among others -- are shooting the new season in New Orleans, and "American Horror Story: Coven" will depict, at least in part, the efforts of a group of witches to protect, educate and defend their embattled tribe. Bassett's role is that of Voodoo queen Marie Lavaue; Bates will play socialite Madame Lalauria; and Lange (who plays the coven's "Supreme") and Paulson will play mother and daughter.
Even if viewers know the skeleton of this year's story, it's safe to say that they won't be able to predict much of what will happen or what will end up moving,
