21 of cinema’s worst elevators

Kirsten Howard Mar 31, 2017

From The Shining to I Origins, these are just some of the worst offenders when it comes to moving between floors...

This article contains spoilers for just about every film on its list.

I don’t know when it started exactly.

When I was very young, it was fine. I maybe even enjoyed getting on an elevator and being whisked off, but somewhere in the timeline of my life, something changed. I began to dread stepping onto one. My heart would pound, a cold sweat would creep down my neck and my breath would quicken.

“What’s wrong?” a bemused acquaintance would ask as we were about to embark.

“Oh! Nothing, really,” I’d respond as casually as I could for someone suddenly about to lose control of their bowels. “I just thought I might take the stairs. Bit of exercise, you know.”

“But it…it’s 18 flights,

Kurt Russell – A Retrospective

Kurt Russell is amazing. That’s all there really is to it, quite frankly. Hell, he’s so cool that when he gets cast in a Marvel superhero movie they decide he’s not going to play a superhero. He’s not even going to play a baddie. He’s going to play a planet! That’s right, a planet – in the eagerly awaited Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2 Russell will be playing Ego The Living Planet, and frankly there’s no greater compliment to one of the coolest men to have ever walked the earth.

Many readers however may not beaware of his galactic level of cool, however – even after an ice cold performance as Jimmy Harrell, rig supervisor and all-round good egg in Deepwater Horizon, out on 4k Uhd Blu-ray, Blu-ray and DVD on the 30th January courtesy of Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Sure, recent outings in The Hateful Eight,

Golden Globes 2017: Hollywood Finds Its Voice as Trump Takes the Presidency

Golden Globes 2017: Hollywood Finds Its Voice as Trump Takes the Presidency
Leave it to Hollywood treasure Meryl Streep to give Hollywood a 2017 rallying cry — and remind the industry, gathered Sunday night at the Beverly Hilton, that they have a voice and a say in where this country is heading.

Accepting the Golden Globe Awards’ Cecil B. deMille honor for lifetime achievement, Streep elicited tears and a standing ovation from the crowd as she reminded the Globes audience that Hollywood is made up of talent from all over the country — and the world.

“Hollywood is crawling with foreigners,” she said. “Take them all out and you’ll end up watching Monday Night Football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts.”

But in particular, Streep drew high marks from the crowd for criticizing the coarseness of political discourse, specifically pointing out the moment that

'Hollywood Treasure' dances with 'The Wizard of Oz's' ruby slippers

Maybe some of that movie storytelling magic is rubbing off, because Syfy's "Hollywood Treasure" launches its new season on Tuesday, May 22, by spotlighting the Holy Grail of Tinseltown collectibles: Dorothy's ruby slippers from "The Wizard of Oz."

As most "Oz" fans know, there actually is a handful of known pairs of these slippers, including an Arabian-style pair never used in the film that were auctioned off last season as part of Debbie Reynolds' collection. But the footwear that Joe Maddalena, owner of Profiles in History, auctions in this new episode is the pair shown when Judy Garland's Dorothy clicks her heels together to go home.

"They arguably are the most important pair, because the pair in the Smithsonian and a pair that were stolen from the Judy Garland Museum were mismatched," Maddalena tells Zap2it. "I've done this 26 years now, and a couple of years ago when my

Hollywood Treasure: Joe Maddalena Teases Season Two

Hollywood Treasure: Joe Maddalena Teases Season Two

In handling the sales of Dorothy's Ruby Red Slippers from The Wizard of Oz, Elvis' guitar, hand-written lyrics by John Lennon, the archive for Alex Haley's Roots or auctioning Trinity's catsuit from The Matrix, collectibles expert Joe Maddalena is undeniably tied to pop-culture history like no other. Owner and operator of Profiles in History, Joe is the world's preeminent auctioneer-collector of original props, costumes and memorabilia from the entertainment industry as well as the star of Syfy's hit reality series (about his business), Hollywood Treasure, debuting its second season tonight.

Last season viewers traveled with Joe and his crew as they reunited Chitty Chitty Bang Bang with Dick Van Dyke at The Tonight Show, found and sold The Wicked Witch of the West's hat, auctioned the estate of screen legend Debbie Reynolds and inarguably helped extend life for numerous seniors selling

The Hunger Games Village To Be Auctioned Off

The Hunger Games Village To Be Auctioned Off
The small North Carolina village that doubled as District 12 in The Hunger Games is up for auction after failing to sell on the property market.

The Henry River Mill Village, which was abandoned in 1987, was put up for grabs at $1.4 million (£880,000) earlier this year because owner Wade Shepherd was tired of tourists visiting the movie set "day and night".

Joe Maddalena, the owner of Hollywood auction house Profiles in History, has since acquired the Henry River Mill Village property, which will be auctioned off via sealed bids with a bidding deadline of 31 July.

The property is valued in excess of $1.2 million (£750,000).

Maddalena tells WENN, "This is a once in a lifetime opportunity."

The auction boss' acquisition of the District 12 site will feature on an upcoming episode of reality TV show Hollywood Treasure.

He adds, "The property exists exactly as it is seen in the film, from the bakery owned by Peeta Mellark’s family to the house where Katniss Everdeen and her sister Prim lived. It is all there. Production came into the town and shot directly on site and didn’t need to change a thing."

When Astin was approached about the show, which includes auctions of major pop-culture artifacts, the actor tells EW that he was “a little wary — I didn’t want to sell anything.” But, he says, then he learned the show isn’t just about money. “It’s also about appreciating the nature of the memorabilia, where it comes from and why it’s so meaningful to people,

Warehouse 13 Q&A: Eddie McClintock Previews Tonight's Two-Hour Season Finale and More!

Warehouse 13, Syfy's highest rated original series, is concluding its third season tonight and according to Eddie McClintock, "They've really raised the stakes for the last two episodes." W13's affable male lead answered questions last week about tonight's two-hour finale and TV Over Mind joined the fun. Already renewed for a fourth season and with its first spinoff in the works, Eddie assures fans that this year's finale will be very different than last season's controversial ender. "Last year's cliffhanger to me wasn't really a cliffhanger. To me a cliffhanger is like, the damsel is tied to the railroad tracks, the train's coming, the guy's racing to get there, 'What's going to happen next,' not, 'Oh no, one of the characters left.' It kind of ticked a lot of people off. I remember getting a lot of twitters about, 'I'm not going to watch the show if
