Blockers Cast on Their Cringe-Worthy High School Fashion — Who Had a 'Sweet High Top Fade'?

Blockers Cast on Their Cringe-Worthy High School Fashion — Who Had a 'Sweet High Top Fade'?
The stars of Blockers are happy to leave their biggest fashion faux pas back in high school.

Ike Barinholtz, Leslie Mann and John Cena took a trip down memory lane while playing Confess Sesh with People Now, admitting to their most embarrassing style choices — despite how great they thought they looked at the time.

Mann immediately revealed that her hair was beyond shameful, but Cena was quick to one-up her.

“I would wear wing-tipped shoes with Mc Hammer pants, the matching shirt, the high top fade. I had a sweet high top fade,” he recalled. “So from head to toe,

Review: Static Shock the Complete Third Season

  • Comicmix
Milestone Media’s best-known character, Static, is back in the third volume of his animated adventures after the release of the first two seasons last year. Static Shock was somewhat revolutionary back in the day, featuring an African-American teen super-hero who juggled classes, girls, villains, and parents, not all that dissimilar to a certain wall-crawler. The comic was long gone, but he left a mark.

Virgil Hawkins (Phil Lamarr) arrived for the Static Shock the Complete Third Season sporting a brand new costume and during the season, his Bff Richie (Jason Marsden) gained powers, taking on the name Gear. Throughout the thirteen episodes comprising the series, which aired in the Kids’ WB, he left the confines of Dakota and journeyed to Africa and even partnered with Superman after fighting alongside the Justice League.

It helped that there were strong scripts from Milestone co-founder Dwayne McDuffie, backed by Paul Dini, Len Uhley,

Sundance Film Review: ‘Hal’

Sundance Film Review: ‘Hal’
In the seven landmark movies he made during the ’70s, from his very first feature, 1970’s “The Landlord” (way ahead of the curve in its post-bleeding-heart racial awareness), up through 1979’s “Being There” (way ahead of the curve in its dryly amused satirical image politics), with the New Hollywood classics “The Last Detail” (1973) and “Shampoo” (1975) coming in between, the director Hal Ashby had an entrancingly shaggy, inquiring, no-fuss style that always revealed the most vulnerable and moonstruck qualities of the characters he showed us. By the time an Ashby movie was over, you knew every last facet and hidden beauty wart of the people on-screen. Their daydreams fused with ours.

So it would seem only fitting if “Hal,” a documentary portrait of Ashby, rustled up a certain stubborn intimacy to reveal who this intensely revered and softly mysterious filmmaker really was. Anyone drawn to the subject will probably go into “Hal” knowing certain basic things about Hal Ashby:

Wes Anderson's Isle of Dogs Poster Invites You Into the Pack

Wes Anderson's Isle of Dogs Poster Invites You Into the Pack
The absolutely dog-centric poster for Wes Anderson's upcoming stop-motion movie Isle of Dogs has landed. Wes Anderson has a style that is very much his own and he's not afraid to take some very bizarre, out-of-the-ordinary risks in his movies. Such is the case with his latest directorial effort, which features a bunch of A-list actors voicing dogs in a rather bizarre but hopefully delightful animated movie. Now, we have a new poster for Isle of Dogs, which really lives up to the promise of its name, as it is loaded down with lovable dogs.

Even if Wes Anderson's name wasn't featured on this poster, it would almost be unmistakably something with his signature style and quirk. The Isle of Dogs poser features the text for the movie's title, both in Japanese and English, right down the center, with the human boy Atari right below it. Nearly every other

The Cinematic Kinship of Richard Linklater and Hal Ashby

The latest stage of Richard Linklater’s freewheeling career takes him back to the 1970s with Last Flag Flying, a 44-years-belated sequel to Hal Ashby’s masterpiece The Last Detail. It’s difficult to call much of anything from Linklater a surprise at this point: he seems as comfortable at the helm of a studio comedy powered by Jack Black’s manic energy as he does a decade-plus-spanning epic about the journey from childhood to adolescence. Last Flag Flying may not stand as one of Linklater’s defining works, but it does signal a kinship with the New Hollywood director, whose run from 1970-1979 was as inspired as any other from that era — before he got burned (and burned-out) and died too young at the age of 59. Ashby and Linklater have a shared ability to make a film built on discursive moments flow narratively, an affinity for counterculture movements or

Telluride Film Review: ‘Lady Bird’

Telluride Film Review: ‘Lady Bird’
By the time you read this, you’ll probably have a pretty good idea of what the movie “Lady Bird” is about, seeing as how it’s the kind of modest, miraculous low-budget gem that takes on a life of its own. But sight unseen, the title sounded a lot like a sequel to last year’s “Jackie,” seeing as how Lbj succeeded JFK in office, and Lady Bird was the name of his wife. Turns out Lady Bird was also the name restless high school senior Christine McPherson picked for herself — a first act of defiance in a battle to assert her own identity as separate from her parents.

Lady Bird” is indie darling (and one-time mumblecore muse) Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut, and the character is basically her, 15 years younger and played by Saoirse Ronan, sporting a vampire-red rinse and a face full of acne (both signs of its attention to detail). Early Telluride reactions

Wes Anderson Movies Ranked From Worst To Best

Wes Anderson Movies Ranked From Worst To Best
Let’s get this out of the way right from the top: Wes Anderson has never made a bad movie, and — in all likelihood — he probably never will. He’s too particular, too immaculate, too in command of his craft. Of course, the fact that he has always been so sure of himself only makes it more tempting to chart the progress of his career and to measure his films against each other. Or maybe it’s just fun because there are still only eight of them, and everyone seems to have their own favorite. Who could say?

Roger Corman finally accepted himself as an iconic filmmaker for this, his final show for A.I.P.. Barely released and long considered a failure, Gas-s-s-s – Or – It Became Necessary to Destroy the World in Order to Save It sees Corman and his writer associate George Armitage attempting a Mad magazine- like amalgam of all the counterculture trends of the late 1960s. That tactical mistake becomes eighty minutes of unfocused and unfunny satire. Armitage’s script and dialogue might occasionally hit some serendipitous notes,

First Plot Details for Wes Anderson's Isle Of Dogs, Set to Be Released in 2018

Yesterday director Wes Anderson officially announced his stop-motion animated film project, Isle of Dogs. Today we learned that Fox Searchlight picked up the distribution rights to the film, and they offered us our first plot details for the film in a very brief synopsis that says the film is a Japan-set tale that follows “a boy’s odyssey in search of his dog.”

This means that the boy featured in the teaser poster will be the main character of the film, and I'm sure Anderson plans on taking him on a crazy adventure. If you look at the image in the poster, you can see he's been beaten up a bit. In a joint statement Fox Searchlight presidents, Nancy Utley and Steve Gilula, said:

Wes Anderson is one of the most talented filmmakers of his, or any other, generation. His ability to write smart and unconventional screenplays and then translate

On the heels of the announcement video that Wes Anderson and crew had begun production of his new animated film, Isle of Dogs, we’ve now learned when we’ll be able to see it.

How Leonard Cohen's Music Turned 'McCabe & Mrs. Miller' Into a Masterpiece

How Leonard Cohen's Music Turned 'McCabe & Mrs. Miller' Into a Masterpiece
In early 1971, Leonard Cohen was still a relatively unknown singer-songwriter. Despite releasing two critically acclaimed records – 1967's Songs of Leonard Cohen and 1969's Songs From a Room – the Canadian artist, who previously plied his trade as a novelist and poet, had yet to tour the U.S. He was then living on a farm in the small town of Big East Fork, Tennessee while preparing the release of that March's Songs of Love and Hate.
