15 years ago today: ‘Legally Blonde’ opened in theaters

13 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

15 years ago today, Elle Woods taught us to bend and snap. Legally Blonde hit theaters on July 13, 2001, giving Reese Witherspoon her breakout role and giving us a movie that put a pink-loving sorority girl in the place where she’s the outcast: law school. Until she proves all her doubters wrong, that is, in the midst of a murder trial, no less. The comedy’s success led to a 2003 sequel and a stage musical that premiered on Broadway in 2007. Other notable July 13 happenings in pop culture history: • 1923: The Hollywood sign, which then read “Hollywoodland,” was officially dedicated. • 1939: Frank Sinatra made his recording debut in a New York studio, singing “From The Bottom Of My Heart” and “Melancholy Mood” with the Harry James Band. • 1964: The Supremes recorded “Come See About Me” in “Hitsville U.S.A.,” Motown’s first headquarters. • 1984: The Muppets Take Manhattan and The Last Starfighter opened in theaters. »

Sacha vs Brian: The Freddie Mercury Biopic Saga

11 April 2016 12:51 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black on the saga of the Freddie Mercury biopic and the war of words between Sacha Baron Cohen and Brian May…

The biopic of Freddie Mercury, the legendary Queen front man who died of AIDS in 1991, is shaping up to be one of the greatest lost film projects of the modern age. Surely a slam dunk of a success waiting to happen, with it’s tale of glam rock excess, forbidden sexuality, celebrity stardom and the ravages of a well-publicised disease, the film has Oscar written all over it for almost certainly the man playing Mercury, at the very least. Yet the movie remains elusive, and battle lines between Queen and the man everyone thought would be Freddie grew wider this week as Brian May launched a scathing rebuke to Sacha Baron Cohen’s recent assertions he left the project because Queen wanted to secure their legacy.

The 1980s are a period that many remember in a nostalgic manner. Even the ones who didn't live through it think back fondly, reliving the moments vicariously through Molly Ringwald films, your mother's legwarmers, or even pictures of your mullet-clad dad. Plus there are the moments that everyone remembers fondly: the first music video premiering on MTV, the Live Aid concert, the advent of internet and mobile communication technology.

The Iran-Contra affair, the neglectful early stages of the AIDS crisis and the Ethiopian famine — these are just a few of the dozens upon dozens of calamities world governments were dealing with at the time. »
