How 1985’s Girls Just Want to Have Fun Set the Template for All Future Dance Movies

20 September 2013 9:40 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Battle of the Year, which opens in theaters today, is, technically, a dance movie: It involves a scrappy group determined to win back the gold in the Olympics of Breakdancing for America’s first time in fifteen years (we invented breakdancing, and now Korea has the trophy? Not on Chris Brown’s watch! U-s-a! U-s-a!). But it doesn't really deliver what fans of the genre really want in a dance movie. Where is the love story, preferably about a girl who pines to dance, is partnered with a hunky bad boy, and overcomes the obstacles of her disapproving parents/weak skills/jealous romantic rival in order to win the contest/her parents’ approval/street cred? This is the formula that has worked for so many other dance films, from Dirty Dancing to Step Up, Stomp the Yard to You Got Served (in the latter two, switch the gender of the »

September Preview

30 August 2013 5:40 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

The month of September typically serves as a transition period between the big-budget blockbusters of the Summer and the high-minded prestige fare of the Fall. As a result, September releases tend to be fairly modest, and September is consistently the lowest-grossing month of the year at the domestic box office. Even with appealing sequels Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 and Insidious Chapter 2, this upcoming month will be no different. Without much help from Summer holdovers, it's unlikely that September 2013 tops September 2011's $603.5 million monthly record.September 6The only major nationwide release on the first weekend of September is Riddick, which marks the third time that Vin Diesel has portrayed the titular character. A year before Diesel starred in The Fast and the Furious, he appeared as Riddick in Pitch Black, which earned $39.2 million on its way to becoming something of a cult classic. In 2004, he was back in The Chronicles of Riddick, »

Raz-b: 5 Things You Need To Know About The Comatose Singer

18 August 2013 9:52 AM, PDT | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

Raz-b has been on life support since August 16 after being brutally attacked in a China nightclub. As he clings to life, here are some things you Must know about this talented singer.

Right now you may only know Raz-b as the R&B singer who fell into a coma after getting viciously smashed in the face with a bottle while trying to break up a fight in a China nightclub, but he is so much more than that.

Raz-b: Five Things To Know About Him

1. He’s An Iconic R&B Star

Raz-b — with the help of a few bandmates — revived R&B music in the early 2000s with the group B2K. Along with Omarion, Lil’ Fizz, and J-Boog, Raz-b and B2K had an unstoppable run with massive hits like “Bump Bump Bump” and “What A Girl Wants.” They were basically Generation X’s Boyz II Men!

2. He’s Multi-Talented »

Joe Jonas, Lance Bass, Miles Fisher Team Up For Epic 80s Music Video

4 June 2013 12:01 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

We recently noted how Above Average is attempting to flip the YouTube Original Channel script by utilizing the star power of SNL performers, but one of the channel's most recent videos features celebrities of a different kind. Broadway Video's YouTube comedy feed is the home of 'Finish What We Started', an 80s-inspired music video featuring contributions from Miles Fisher, Lance Bass, Joe Jonas, and a bunch of funny people. The video accompanies a song by Fisher, who has previous crafted retro music videos based around 90s sitcoms and cult classic films. This time around, he goes even more old school, setting 'Finish What We Started' at an 80s-themed party where three men go through a training montage in order to get revenge on three other men who previous owned them on the dance floor. It's You Got Served, but with more camp. One of the three leads is played by Lance Bass, »

Set Visit: Battle of the Year with Josh Holloway

We visit the Battle of the Year set in Whittier, California to speak with the cast and crew

Director Benson Lee's 2008 documentary Planet B-Boy proved that the art form of breakdancing is still alive and well today, decades after the popular dance craze started in the 1980s. The filmmaker returns to put a narrative spin on B-boying in the upcoming drama Battle of the Year, arriving in theaters September 13. Back in December 2011, I was invited to spend a day at the Whittier, California set to speak with the cast and crew of this dance-fueled drama. In case you missed it, clickHere to watch the second trailer that debuted last week.

During most movie set visits I attend, we spend the day watching scenes being shot and interviewing actors, writers, directors, producers, or whoever else is available. Due to some unfortunate scheduling complications, we didn't get to see a lot of shooting, »

You Can't Unsee This Mesmerizing Riker 'Star Trek' Supercut

9 May 2013 9:10 AM, PDT | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

If you've ever wondered how "Star Trek: The Next Generation's" Commander Riker sits in a chair, you now have an answer: like a boss.

Even if you're a devoted "Star Trek" fan, you may never have noticed how Riker (Jonathan Frakes) takes charge of certain sitting situations. He can't show those big chairs on the Enterprise bridge who's boss -- they're just too large -- but when it comes to Ten Foward (the ship's lounge), meetings in Captain Picard's (Patrick Stewart) office or conference room situations, Riker pulls up a leg and just swings it over those dinky, futuristic chairs, as if he's some intergalactic cowboy at an Old West saloon.

Maybe it was all part of the Riker method of warning alien evildoers of his manly virility. Maybe as a tall man, Frakes just looked silly sitting in those Starfleet chairs the normal way. Maybe it just added »

DVD Review - The Helpers (2012)

The Helpers, 2012.

The Helpers tackles a story involving a group of friends who head off for a weekend of fun and frolics in Sin City, Las Vegas.  All seems well at the beginning, but just like an episode of BBC’s Casualty, no matter how good things currently seem, you know there’s danger lurking around the corner. So we then find our group of friends lost in the middle of nowhere with some car troubles. Luckily for the crew, they come across a group of friendly people who happen to run »

DVD Review: The Helpers

The Helpers

Stars: Kristen Quintrall, Denyce Lawton, Christopher Jones, JoJo Wright, Rachel Sterling, Black Thomas, Dustin Harnish, Cameron Diskin, Braxton Davis | Directed by Chris Stokes

Music producer-turned-film director Chris Stokes (You Got Served) turns his hands to horror with The Helpers. And whilst his early work featured a number of rappers and singers he has produced and worked with, this is his first movie Not to follow that format. This time round Stokes takes a bunch of relative unknowns (the majority of whom are credited with small roles in TV fare) and casts them in a movie that blends traditional filmmaking with that most risible of genres – the found-footage film.

The Helpers follows a group of seven friends who are headed on a road trip to Las Vegas, but along the way they get a flat tyre. Leaving the women behind, the men then go off in pursuit of help »
