100 Essential Action Scenes: Shootouts

23 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sound on Sight undertook a massive project, compiling ranked lists of the most influential, unforgettable, and exciting action scenes in all of cinema. There were hundreds of nominees spread across ten different categories and a multi-week voting process from 11 of our writers. The results: 100 essential set pieces, sequences, and scenes from blockbusters to cult classics to arthouse obscurities.    

Shootouts, unlike any other type of action scenes, put death in the forefront of the audience’s mind. Whereas a car chase draws the attention onto the race, or a fight scene onto the pursuit of victory, shootouts test the mortality of our protagonists and anti-heroes. It’s more than just a hail of bullets that matters on screen, it’s who those bullets are clipping down or propping up. Legends can be made in a flurry of lead. The last man standing after the fray isn’t always the best or »

Here's how Twitter reacted to Britain's Got Talent's live final

31 May 2015 2:36 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Britain's Got Talent came to an end tonight (May 31) as one lucky winner claimed a spot at this year's Royal Variety Performance.

Jules O'Dwyer and Matisse topped the viewer vote and were duly named Britain's Got Talent 2015 champions.

We round up the reaction on social media to tonight's Britain's Got Talent live final below.

Firstly, there was a lot of moaning about the number of adverts during the show:

Britain's Got Adverts #BGTfinal

Sean Goldsmith (@SeanGoldsmith2) May 31, 2015

I've just voted for the @plusnet advert. Not got the hang of this yet. #BGTfinal

John Archer (@TheArchini) May 31, 2015

I don't normally watch @Bgt and these adverts after every act are reminding me why. So annoying. #BGTfinal

— Chris Jay Lewis (@c_j_lewis) May 31, 2015

Two and a half hours of #BGTFinal tonight, that's 43 minutes of the show and 107 minutes of adverts

100 Essential Action Scenes: Swordfights

27 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sound on Sight undertook a massive project, compiling ranked lists of the most influential, unforgettable, and exciting action scenes in all of cinema. There were hundreds of nominees spread across ten different categories and a multi-week voting process from 11 of our writers. The results: 100 essential set pieces, sequences, and scenes from blockbusters to cult classics to arthouse obscurities.    

Sword fights, like one-on-one fights, target the emotion and power of each individual fighter, but are amplified by the extension of their weapon. Whereas one-on-one fights test the might and bronze of our competitors, sword fights add an extra element of intelligence and skill. A fighter can scrape by through luck in a brawl of fists, but a sword (and knife) fight exposes the true strengths and weaknesses of its opponents.

Netflix Releases ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ Cast Photos

22 May 2015 7:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Hey, let’s all promise that in 10 years from today, we’ll meet again, and we’ll see what kind of people we’ve blossomed into.”

Ok, so it’s been more than 10 years since that line was spoken in Michael Showalter and David Wain’s ’80s throwback camp comedy “Wet Hot American Summer,” but that doesn’t mean fans are any less excited for the Netflix prequel series, “Wet Hot Americann Summer: First Day of Camp.” Just in time for Memorial Day, Netflix has released cast photos from the upcoming series that show Elizabeth Banks, Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Paul Rudd, Christopher Meloni and more embracing their Camp Firewood roots.

“‘Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp’ is a prequel to the original movie,” said Wain. “In real life we’re 15 years older but in the show we’re playing two months younger. The movie took place on »

100 Essential Action Scenes: One vs. Many Fights

You know an action hero is the baddest of badasses when he or she walks in and the room goes silent. The drug lord’s bodyguards, the mastermind’s henchmen, or even the foolhardy pack of drunkards outside a roadside bar stand at attention, ready for a challenge. It’s just one person. This shouldn’t be too hard. Seconds later, they’re on the ground nursing bruises, or worse, stumps where their arms and legs used to be. The One vs. Many Fight is the chance for the hero to prove »

Britain's Got Talent ep 5: Twitter reacts to dangerous trampolining and DJ John

9 May 2015 1:53 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Tonight's (May 10) fifth round of Britain's Got Talent auditions included familiar faces, an impressive light display and 'do not try this at home' trampolining.

Judge Alesha Dixon wasn't impressed with Dylan's enthusiastic dance moves but soon cheered up when Lauren Platt's brother Lewis took to the stage with his dance group Entity Allstars.

Alesha thought the act was Golden Buzzer worthy, but did Twitter agree?

Digital Spy rounds up Twitter's reaction to the evening's acts below:

Aaron's Beyoncé impersonation kicked off the show

His Gran's about to have a heart attack! #Bgt

As an ex-police officer, Aaron certainly knows the beat and is thankfully resisting a rest… #Bgt

100 Essential Action Scenes: Foot Chases

5 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sound on Sight undertook a massive project, compiling ranked lists of the most influential, unforgettable, and exciting action scenes in all of cinema. There were hundreds of nominees spread across ten different categories and a multi-week voting process from 11 of our writers. The results: 100 essential set pieces, sequences, and scenes from blockbusters to cult classics to arthouse obscurities.

Part 1 of 10: There’s nothing like the thrill of a chase. A bank robber pulls off an elaborate heist only to be pursued by a dogged detective on foot. A soldier escapes from enemy territory but must outrun the angry combatants on his tail. A man wrongly accused of murder has just his wits and his two legs to flee the authorities. It’s the immediacy that appeals: characters relying on their stamina, agility, and wit to stay alive, without the aid that a car, boat, or plane gives them. For filmmakers, »

Katie Holmes Chops Off Her Hair for 2015 Met Gala ... Or Did She?

4 May 2015 4:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Talk about a big change! Katie Holmes debuted her much-shorter bob haircut at the 2015 Met Gala on Monday night, after she teased the new 'do throughout the afternoon on Instagram. The actress chopped off at least eight inches of her long brunette locks, bringing her hair up to her chin and adding blunt bangs. She paired her newly-chopped tresses with a metallic Zac Posen gown that featured floral embellishments and an open back. "The big reveal," Posen wrote of his Bff's new hairstyle. "My wonderful friend and date spectacular @katieholmes212 for the #Metgala #ChinaLookingGlass #centralpark." While we love Katie's dress, that hairstyle reminds of her daughter Suri's signature bob. Do you see the resemblance?! We're not 100% she actually chopped off her locks or if she's sporting a wig though -- what do you think? Holmes is just one of the stylish stars hitting the red carpet at the Met Gala this year. »

Inside No. 9 series 2 episode 5 review: Nana's Party

23 April 2015 9:20 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

What’s more horrifying than vampires, psychos, or zombies? Family gatherings, as we saw in this week’s Inside No. 9...

This review contains spoilers.

2.5 Nana's Party

This week’s episode of Inside No. 9, the second of this series to be directed by Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith, took as its setting something that’s bound to induce a shiver down most spines – a family birthday party. The kind of enforced fun where only one person, at the most, actually wants to be there, and every hug between family members (hardly) hides years of petty resentments. Pemberton and Shearsmith have picked some incredibly scary places for both series one and two – a housebreak, a creepy old mansion, a locked wardrobe – but Nana’s Party shows that the domestic is what’s really dangerous, and a person’s loved ones can be the cruellest.

16 April 2015 6:45 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

What an adorable duo! Katie Holmes took to Instagram on Wednesday to share a rare and candid photo with 8-year-old daughter Suri Cruise. In the pic, the cute twosome is seen playing dress up with some silly accessories. Sporting hot pink boas and orange sunglasses, the mother and daughter pair make funny faces at each other.

‘Avengers: Rage of Ultron’ shows strings are all the rage

7 April 2015 9:55 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Avengers: Rage of Ultron

Written by Rick Remender

Art by Jerome Opena, Pepe Larraz, Mark Morales

Published by Marvel Comics

You might have heard of this tiny little film called Avengers: Age of Ultron hitting theaters on May 1st. Marvel wanted to prep casual readers and hardcore readers alike and published  a bold, game-changing, original graphic novel about everyone’s favorite robot overlord, Ultron.

Rage of Ultron opens up with the Avengers battling Ultron in a time only classified as “then”. The team lineup of the classic Avengers with Vision, Scarlet Witch, and Beast in tow are trying to stop Ultron (with strings attached!) in the New York city streets. Beast and Hawkeye are the comedic duo throughout the early battle, and writer Rick Remender makes them hit all the right quips all the while dodging Ultron and his blasts. Jerome Opena handles the art duties for this section and owns it. »

5 April 2015 6:44 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Happy "Mad Men" day! The Emmy-winning drama returns for its final season (or half-season, if you're playing along with AMC's silliness) tonight at 10. As preparation for these last seven episodes, here are all the "Mad Men" stories we've run over the last few weeks: * Matthew Weiner looking back at the beginning, and end, of his baby; * Memories from Jon Hamm, plus a Jerry Lewis impression; * John Slattery with a few tonsorial spoilers for the final season; * Vincent Kartheiser on the highs and lows of Pete; * Predictions on how the show might end from both TV critics and a few showrunners; * My thoughts about how "Mad Men" chronicled one revolution while being part of another; * An insane ranking of every single Peggy Olson outfit ever by Katie Hasty and Louis Virtel (who have no appreciation for either the "vixen by night" outfit or the purple dress she wears when she quits). Enjoy. »

TV writers (and writers of TV) predict the end of 'Mad Men'

3 April 2015 4:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Mad Men” begins its final stretch of episodes on Sunday night at 10 on AMC, and we asked a handful of TV critics, as well as several TV producers (some of whom have had experience ending their own shows) to predict what might happen when all is said and done for Don Draper and friends. Some took the assignment very seriously. Some opted for the ridiculous. Some fell in between. Damon Lindelof (Co-creator, "Lost"/"The Leftovers") There is a knock on Pete's door. He answers. There's a ten year old child standing there in a suit. "Hello, father..." he says, "I just want you to know that I am going to write a television show one day. And my portrayal of you will Not be flattering." Pete runs his hand through his receding hairline, shaken, but imperious. "What's your name, little boy?" The bastard son glares at his father, "Matthew." he says. »

Cringe: 13 movies with blatantly homophobic scenes

26 March 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The new comedy "Get Hard" stars Kevin Hart as an unlikely coach who trains Will Ferrell for a stint in prison. In one scene, Hart insists that Ferrell go to a top La brunch spot and give oral sex to a random patron in the bathroom to learn -- I guess? -- the mechanics of prison rape. Yes, this movie equates consensual gay sexual activity with actual rape. Cut to Will Ferrell in a restaurant bathroom gagging at the sight of a penis for the amusement of a multiplex audience. Could it be the most homophobic scene in a comedy of the past ten years? It's certainly a candidate. To commemorate this weirdly ignorant movie, we've compiled a list: movies with homophobic scenes so blatant, they made us shudder. Sometimes a movie reeks of homophobia (See: that ol' heart-warmer "Cruising") and sometimes it's just a couple of moments in a »

23 March 2015 9:03 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Candice Bergen is not about to apologize for gaining 30 pounds in 15 years.

The 68-year-old former Murphy Brown star is getting candid about her weight in her new memoir, A Fine Romance, and isn't afraid to tell it like it is.

"Let me just come right out and say it: I am fat," she writes, as the Today show reported on Monday, previewing their interview with her on April 7. "I live to eat. None of this 'eat to live' stuff for me."

"I am a champion eater," she jokes. "No carb is safe -- no fat, either."

In what's sure to be controversial, the former model also seemingly jokes about bulimia.
