Massachusetts Man Invites 70 Strangers to Thanksgiving Dinner for 32 Years in a Row: 'It's About Being Together'

In 1985, faced with his first Thanksgiving alone after his parents divorced, Scott Macaulay of Melrose, Massachusetts, suddenly had a wild and wonderful idea. Rather than eat a frozen turkey dinner in front of the television, why not invite other lonely people facing the same predicament?

So Macaulay, who runs a vacuum shop, took out an ad in the Melrose Free Press, asking 12 strangers to join him for Thanksgiving dinner.

“I bought all the stuff and made everything myself at my church,” he tells People, “and it was such a great Thanksgiving that I made a decision right there to keep it up.

7 Essential Debut Films Directed By Female Filmmakers, From ‘Ratcatcher’ to ‘The Virgin Suicides’

7 Essential Debut Films Directed By Female Filmmakers, From ‘Ratcatcher’ to ‘The Virgin Suicides’
When Greta Gerwig’s already-lauded “Lady Bird” hits limited release later this week, the actress-writer-director will join a long line of other female filmmakers who used their directorial debut (this one is Gerwig’s solo directorial debut, just for clarity’s sake) to not only launch their careers, but make a huge mark while doing it. Gerwig’s Saoirse Ronan-starring coming-of-age tale is an instant classic, and one that shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to anyone who has enjoyed Gerwig’s charming work as a screenwriter in recent years, bolstered by her ear for dialogue and her love of complicated and complex leading ladies.

While Hollywood still lags when it comes to offering up opportunities to its most talented female filmmakers, many of them have overcome the dismal stats to deliver compelling, interesting, and unique first features. In short, they’re good filmmakers who made good movies,

Fantasia 2017: ‘Savage Dog’ Review

Stars: Scott Adkins, Marko Zaror, Juju Chan, Cung Le, Keith David, Vladimir Kulich, Matthew Marsden, Charles Fathy | Written and Directed by Jesse V. Johnson

Ok, let’s all just say it together. Scott Adkins is the saviour of Dtv action movies. Charismatic, skilled and just a downright badass (and likeable) actor, whatever Adkins seemingly touches turns to gold – the Universal Soldier franchise was improved by his addition, as was the Undisputed series: in fact he made that particular fighting franchise Better with each and every sequel. Even the football-themed series Green Street was made watchable by the appearance of Adkins in the third installment, and that coming from someone who, typically, refuses to watch movies based on idiotic football hooligans.

Hold on… Turns out I may have a man-crush on Scott Adkins! And that’s not a bad thing.

Adkins has single-handedly kept the direct to market action genre alive,

Charlie Hunnam interview - King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword

Rob Leane May 17, 2017

Charlie Hunnam chats to us about his journey from shoe shop to Arthurian legend, via Byker Grove, Guillermo del Toro and Guy Ritchie...

As I awkwardly shambled into a fancy London hotel room to interview Charlie Hunnam, I had no clue what to expect from the man. The British born actor has played hard nuts on several occasions, across projects such as Green Street and Sons Of Anarchy. His latest role, a rough and ready rendition of King Arthur for Snatch’s Guy Ritchie, seems to fit in with that lot.

But Hunnam has also worked with indie darlings like Guillermo del Toro and James Gray. As well as pulling swords from stones, murdering motorbike enthusiasts and scrapping on the streets of London, he’s battled kaiju, explored strange new worlds, dabbled in period pieces, and much more. It all adds up to a very diverse CV,

Charlie Hunnam’s Dumb-Dumbs Are Anything But Humdrum

The actor has made a career out of musclebound oddballs.

Charlie Hunnam gets a bad rap. The former model has attempted to make a name for himself as a leading man, but his unique brand of meatheadedness is quite different to the competent and suave badasses making up the A-list of action. He’s no Jason Bourne. There’s no way he’d pull off billionaire/playboy/superhero. That’s not what he’s after. His characters all — like the man himself — strain against their muscles as physical limitations to their introspective spirits. They want to be poets and writers and academics, but find themselves damned by their bodies, faces, lifestyles, and fates. In performing these roles, Charlie Hunnam has perfected the long-suffering wannabe-intellectual tough guy. He does this to great effect in the gorgeous slow-burn adventure The Lost City of Z, which expands this weekend, but first, let’s look at how he got here.

‘Eliminators’ DVD Review

Stars: Scott Adkins, Lily Ann Stubbs, Wade Barrett, James Cosmo, Daniel Caltagirone, Stephen Marcus, Nick Nevern, Ty Glaser, Sean Cronin, Mark Wingett, Mem Ferda | Written by Nathan Brookes, Bobby Lee Darby | Directed by James Nunn

If there’s ever a phrase that will have me instantly reaching for my wallet it’s “a Scott Adkins film…” Honestly, nine times out of ten I will buy an Adkins film without so much as seeing a trailer. Why? Well because for me, Adkins is keeping the Dtv dream alive, picking up the action hard-man mantle from 90s pioneers like Jeff Speakman, Olivier Gruner, Gary Daniels and in particular Jeff Wincott, one of the only other true action heroes to have the same perfect blend of fighting skills, charisma and acting chops as Adkins.

Eliminators sees Adkins re-team with his Green Street 3 director James Nunn (who also co-directed the fab British thriller Tower Block

The Lost City Of Z review [Berlinale]: Dir. James Gray (2017)

The Lost City Of Z review: James Gray writes and directs this take of an epic true story of twentieth century explorer Percy Fawcett.

The Lost City Of Z review by Paul Heath at the 2017 Berlin Film Festival.

The Lost City Of Z review

James Gray follows up previous crime movies The Yards, We Own The Night and the previous Little Odessa, all of which were impressive in their own way, with this ambitious, yet involving period piece about the legendary British explorer Colonel Percy Fawcett who, in the early twentieth century, embarked on a series of journeys to find a mysterious lost city in the Amazon jungle.

Charlie Hunnam (Green Street, Sons Of Anarchy) leads the cast of this epic 140-minute motion picture that is reminiscent of movies made in an era a long ago. In The Lost City Of Z he plays the lead of Fawcett, an ambitious

Wrestling Biopic Crossface Gets A Director

  • TheMovieBit
Once a much celebrated and respected wrestler working for WWE, Chris Benoit murdered his wife and son, before taking his own life, in the Summer of 2007. It is one of the darkest moments in the history of professional wrestling, and had a major impact on the product going forward, bringing the subject of concussions, what many believe to be the leading factor in this tragic event, suffered by wrestlers into sharp focus. A movie focusing on Benoit’s life and death titled Crossface, named after his submission hold the Crippler Crossface, has been rumoured for sometime now, but it seems it may actually be happening, with Green Street and Punisher: War Zone director Lexi Alexander revealing on twitter that she has signed on as director.

Charlie Hunnam Won't Return For Pacific Rim 2

It was just a few days ago that Guillermo del Toro was promising "a lot" of the cast from the first Pacific Rim would be coming back to reprise their roles in Pacific Rim 2, but it turns out that statement doesn't apply to the first film's lead protagonist. In an interview with Yahoo Movies, Charlie Hunnam revealed that he won't be returning for the upcoming sequel:

"I'm very excited about it. I'm glad they're making it, and I think it's going to be great. I read an early draft of what they're doing, and there was one incarnation of this sequel that involved me heavily, but I was unavailable. They have a very definite schedule that they have to film because of the politics and business surrounding filmmaking. Sometimes non-creative decisions will dictate how something unfolds, which seems bass ackwards in fact that we're making art...(laughs) or at least aspiring to make art.

The Conjuring 2 Versus Reality: A Film Review

Paranormal Investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren were never that deeply involved with the real life paranormal case which took place on 284 Green Street, Enfield — a borough in London, England. The Conjuring 2 is a compression of a few facts from the investigation and, as with most movie adaptations, never truly take into account all the details. Huge liberties are taken and I'm sure the real Janet Hodgson (played in the film by Madison Wolfe) does not approve of certain alterations. The case lasted for about two years instead of weeks. The investigators who spent months on this case were Spr members Guy Lyon Playfair and Maurice Grosse — the latter barely gets enough of a spotlight. While this group of researchers are modestly credited, the shift in who are the heroes is more disheartening in the long run. Psychology professor Anita Gregory received a nod in this fictional account and John Beloff is ignored. As for who were involved requires looking into the documents filed...

‘The Conjuring 2’ review: “Equal to, if not better than the original”

The Conjuring 2 Review: James Wan returns to the horror genre with The Conjuring 2, a film that will keep you up all night. The Conjuring 2 Review

The Conjuring holds the accolade for being the second highest grossing horror movie of all time; The Exorcist holds the top spot. Having raked in $319 million worldwide it was inevitable that a sequel would be created, but as everybody knows – sequels, especially those in the horror genre, are notoriously difficult to pull off. James Wan however, has managed to skirt the usual pitfalls and has created a second film that more than holds its own against its predecessor.

Following the format of The Conjuring, The Conjuring 2 once more delves into the real life case files of the very real paranormal investigating couple of Ed and Lorraine Warren. Over the years the pair have investigated all manner of spooky situations including both Amityville and the Enfield haunting,
