The 40-Year Old Virgin at 10 and the cultural impact it had

18 August 2015 9:29 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Shortly following the turn of the millennium came a transitional moment in Hollywood humour. Comedies featuring adolescents and comedies featuring adults had never been a rare sight, but following the Farrelly brothers’ There’s Something About Mary (1998), the maturation of the American Pie (1999) series, and particularly with the rise of the Frat Pack (a term coined in a Variety review of Old School (2003)), it became increasingly popular to combine the two, and to blur the line dividing maturity and immaturity that is supposed to magically appear during the progression into adulthood.

Suddenly, it was common to see films reversing the coming-of-age narrative of many teen comedies, continuing the natural progression of slacker films such as Clerks (1994), and intensifying the feckless nature of adults from examples such as The Big Lebowski (1998) and Office Space (1999). The Frat Pack were at the forefront of that change, and their movie Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004) was its harbinger, »

First trailer for Burnt starring Bradley Cooper

13 August 2015 11:16 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Weinstein Company has released the first trailer for director John Wells’ culinary comedy drama Burnt starring Bradley Cooper, and you can check it out below after the official synopsis…

See Also: Burnt gets a new poster

Chef Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper) had it all – and lost it. A two-star Michelin rockstar with the bad habits to match, the former enfant terrible of the Paris restaurant scene did everything different every time out, and only ever cared about the thrill of creating explosions of taste. To land his own kitchen and that third elusive Michelin star though, he’ll need the best of the best on his side, including the beautiful Helene (Sienna Miller). Burnt is a remarkably funny and emotional story about the love of food, the love between two people, and the power of second chances.

Burnt is set for release on October 16th in the UK and October 23rd in the Us. »

Watch: Admire The Beautiful Wide Shots Of Bennett Miller's 'Foxcatcher' In This Supercut

13 August 2015 10:41 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Bennett Miller’s five-time Oscar-nominated “Foxcatcher” was an outstanding look at some, well, unsportsmanlike qualities between du Pont family heir John E. du Pont and Mark and Dave Schultz, Olympic gold medalist brothers. The film was a critical success, with those aforementioned nominations and Miller’s win at Cannes for best director, but in this video below our friends at Between Frames take a deeper look into the film’s characterization. Read More: Why 'Foxcatcher' Director Bennett Miller Has Only Made Four Films in 16 Years The ubiquitous wide shots and camera angles Miller utilizes demonstrate just how emotionally distant these brothers and their eccentric coach truly were. Despite the physical closeness in wrestling and the arduous hours they spent maintaining their physiques, we see in this fantastic mashup that loneliness was certainly abound on the Foxcatcher Farm.

The Stars of "Weird Science" -- See What They Look Like 30 Years Later!

2 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

30 years ago today, two geeks from Shermer, Illinois created Lisa, the perfect woman, with a little computer know-how. That's right, "Weird Science" came out exactly three decades ago and was the third film John Hughes stepped behind the camera for as director, following "The Breakfast Club" and "Sixteen Candles." The flick was also the fourth time Hughes had worked with star Anthony Michael Hall, who appeared in both of the aforementioned films, as well as the Hughes-penned "Vacation." Fun fact: Hall reportedly chose this flick over doing a "Vacation" sequel -- thus starting a franchise tradition of switching the actors playing the Griswold children each film. Joining Hall were Ilan Mitchell-Smith and Kelly LeBrock, a former model who turned her sights towards acting. "Weird Science" went on to become a cult classic and spawned a USA series of the same name, with Vanessa Angel taking over the role of Lisa. »
