8 Exhilarating Winter Olympics Movies, From ‘I, Tonya’ to ‘Cool Runnings’

8 Exhilarating Winter Olympics Movies, From ‘I, Tonya’ to ‘Cool Runnings’
There’s nothing quite like the drama (and, on occasion, trauma) of Olympic-level sports to rally even the most relaxed of audience members. When this year’s Winter Olympics — the 23rd in the contemporary iteration of the event — stages its opening ceremony this Friday in Pyeongchang, South Korea, it will herald in over two weeks of the very best that the athletic world has to offer. Even better: it’s all real.

But for those interested in cinematic renditions of stories of grit, determination, and often a metric ton of sequins, the movie world has provided a few choice picks. From the drama of such classics as “Downhill Racer” to the joy of “Cool Runnings” and the wacky happenstance of “I, Tonya,” check out eight solid gold picks for some Olympics-centric binge-watching below (if you can find the time during watching the actual events unfold in the coming weeks).

Lara Flynn Boyle Discusses Her History Experiencing Sexual Misconduct in Rare Public Appearance: 'It Happens All the Time'
Twin Peaks actress Lara Flynn Boyle made a rare public appearance last Sunday at the La County Walk to Defeat Als where she discussed the sexual misconduct she’s had to deal with in her career.

Asked whether she had ever been mistreated in her career, Boyle told The Hollywood Reporter, “Oh, all the time! All the time! It happens all the time.”

“I looked at it on two levels: Do I want to flip burgers, or do I want to put up with someone not being appropriate with me? I chose the other side,” the 47-year-old actress continued.

Lion King Deleted Scene Has Scar Making Moves on Nala

Lion King Deleted Scene Has Scar Making Moves on Nala
Last month, Disney released a rare deleted scene that shows Jeremy Irons singing as Scar from The Lion King Signature Collection on Blu-ray. Now we have details on another deleted scene that may have been quite controversial, if it remained a part of the 1994 theatrical release. This scene also features Jeremy Irons' Scar, but this time he isn't singing, he's making some creepy advances towards Nala (Moira Kelly). According to a new report, while the rest of the scenes that were cut still do match the overall tone of the movie, this scene in particular, "comes out of left field."

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that these deleted scenes all featured the dialogue recordings by the voice actors, although they weren't fully animated, only showcased in storyboard form. Directors Roger Allers and Rob Minkoff explain in the special features that these scenes, "didn't quite make it into the movie" because

Review: The Lion King – The Circle of Life Edition

  • Comicmix
Walt Disney was a canny marketer, cycling his films in and out of release, on and off television, through the years, recognizing it would appear fresh to younger viewers and fondly recalled by those at later stages in their lives. That practice has continued into the world of home video with the films on rotation and we’re now getting The Lion King: The Circle of Life Edition after having received Masterpiece Collection, Platinum Edition and Diamond Edition. The new edition is already available as Digital HD and hits disc today.

An interesting thing to consider about the story itself is that Simba is being trained by his father to one day succeed him as King. This connection with a parent and this effort towards being prepared to rule is entirely absent from any of the Disney Princess films.

Of course, the movie is a wildly entertaining musical which

"Twin Peaks," Episode 10 Recap: True Men

Twin Peaks Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering David Lynch and Mark Frost's limited, 18-episode continuation of the Twin Peaks television series.It's worth quoting the latest (perhaps the last?) gnomic pronouncements from Margaret "The Log Lady" Lanterman (the late Catherine E. Coulson), speaking via phone to Deputy Sheriff Tommy "Hawk" Hill (Michael Horse), in full: "Hawk—electricity is humming. You hear it in the mountains and rivers. You see it dance among the seas and stars. And glowing around the moon. But in these days, the glow is dying. What will be in the darkness that remains? The Truman brothers are both true men. They are your brothers. And the others, the good ones, who have been with you. Now the circle is almost complete. Watch and listen to the dream of time and space. It all comes out now, flowing like a river. That which is and is not.

‘Twin Peaks': Where’s Donna? Lara Flynn Boyle’s Odd History With the Show
There are some notable omissions from the 217 names on the cast list for Showtime’s “Twin Peaks” revival, including Heather Graham (who played Annie Blackburn) and Piper Laurie (Catherine Martell). But the most noticeable absence may be that of Lara Flynn Boyle. Boyle played the good-hearted best friend of Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee). And while her omission from the giant cast list is disappointing, it isn’t a huge surprise. Boyle was famously recast in the “Twin Peaks” prequel film “Fire Walk With Me” — in which the role of Donna was played by Moira Kelly, who is also not appearing in the revival,

Disney reportedly want Beyonce to voice Nala in The Lion King remake

Author: Scott Davis

Is one of the world’s biggest pop stars set to lend her vocals to the upcoming remake of The Lion King? If Disney gets their wish it looks very likely as news from Variety suggests Beyonce is the first choice to voice Nala in Jon Favreau’s new version of the classic animation.

There is no official deal just yet but the singer is director Favreau’s first choice for the role, which would see her take over the role from Moira Kelly and Sally Dworsky, who voiced and sung in the 1994 film. If she takes the role, she would join Donald Glover (Han Solo), who voices Simba, and James Earl Jones who returns to play Mufasa.

How Well Do You Know 'The Cutting Edge'?
On March 27, 1992, Moira Kelly and D.B. Sweeney heated up the ice rink on the big screen as mismatched Olympians Kate Moseley and Doug Dorsey in The Cutting Edge.

Moseley — a rich, stuck-up figure skater — is paired up with working-class former hockey player Dorsey after an injury derails his NHL dreams. They instantly clash. (Among other barbs, she asks him if he can read, tells him "don't quit your day job" and asks their coach if they can "teach it to breathe with its mouth closed.") But as the duo work together and advance to the Olympics,...

The Summer Olympics are under way, and so it’s the perfect time to look back at some of our favourite films about this magnificent sporting event.

These five films captured the heart of the Olympics in one way or another, whether it was through the perseverance of an underdog, or the nature of competition that can drive some to madness. Some are based on true stories and others are inspired simply by all of the excitement that the Olympics entail. All in all, it makes for some epic cinema.

'Twin Peaks' cast list: 11 major omissions, from Lara Flynn Boyle to Heather Graham
What a way to start off the week! The formidable cast list for Showtime's forthcoming Twin Peaks revival series was revealed this morning, and man, is it a doozy. In addition to boasting such key returning players as Kyle MacLachlan (Dale Cooper), Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer/Maddy Ferguson) and Sherilyn Fenn (Audrey Horne), there are a number of surprising A-listers in the mix including Michael Cera, Trent Reznor, Amanda Seyfried and Naomi Watts. On the downside, a not-insignificant number of cast members from both the original series and the 1992 prequel film Fire Walk with Me are completely absent from the list. Where, for instance, is Lara Flynn Boyle (or Moira Kelly, for that matter)? Michael Ontkean? Piper Laurie? Joan Chen? Anyone from the mill? (Literally, there is no one from the mill.) So while I'm thankful that most of the major players are back in action, I can't help but

Twin Peaks Turns 25: 9 Actors You Forgot Played Peaks Characters
Twenty-five years ago this week, Americans got their first glimpse of the small Northwestern town of Twin Peaks. They heard the chords of that theme song for the first time, and they had just begun to wonder, "Who killed Laura Palmer?"

The anniversary seems especially meaningful today because those same fans are wondering what will become of Showtime's planned Twin Peaks revival. On Sunday, series creator and surrealism purveyor David Lynch announced on Facebook that he had chosen not to direct the new Twin Peaks as a result of payment disputes. However, he cautioned that "Twin Peaks may still be alive on Showtime.

Twin Peaks Is Back: 14 Burning Questions Season 3 Must Address

Twin Peaks Is Back: 14 Burning Questions Season 3 Must Address
The final episode of Twin Peaks aired on June 10, 1991 — and the devastating (and let’s just say it: wholly disappointing) cliffhanger left us with far too many questions. (And far too few of those questions were answered by the 1992 prequel movie Fire Walk With Me).

Enter Showtime.

As reported early Monday, the cable network has commissioned a nine-episode present-day continuation of David Lynch and Mark Frost’s classic ABC drama that will attempt to bring the series to a satisfying conclusion. We’re assuming that means at least some of Season 2’s innumerable loose threads will be tied up.

Twin Peaks the Missing Pieces: What do the Fire Walk With Me deleted scenes tell us?

  • HeyUGuys
First comes a warning.

Some Spoilers For ‘Twin Peaks’ & ‘Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me’ Contained

Everyone has their white whale; that elusive treasure or goal that they fetishise and dare to find and covet. For some it was the lost footage from Fritz Lang’s Metropolis. For others it was the mythical buried reels of The Wicker Man, which rather ludicrously had been rumoured for years to be buried in the concrete foundations of an English motorway. For me it was always the deleted scenes of David Lynch’s much maligned Twin Peaks prequel Fire Walk with Me. Even in a pre-internet, pre-dvd extras age, I obsessed over this rumoured material and what possible insights it may offer into Lynch’s labyrinthian mystery. And now, thanks to the Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery Blu-ray set, they are finally here. So how do they stack up? What do they tell us?

Press tour: 'Constantine' hires Angelica Celaya to replace Lucy Griffiths
TV pilot production is an inexact science. Certain characters or ideas don't quite click, so you change them, or you abandon them, and then you move on. In these days of leaner budgets, though, it's trickier to deal with the changes as thoroughly as might be ideal, which is why much of NBC's press tour session for "Constantine" was devoted to a character who now won't be in the show past the pilot. In the original version of the pilot — based on the John Constantine character from DC Comics, here played by Matt Ryan as an exorcist and "dabbler in the dark arts" — Constantine befriends Liv Aberdine, played by Lucy Griffiths, the daughter of a friend of his, and someone with her own undiscovered connection to the world of the occult. The pilot takes Lucy on an emotional journey from skeptical, to fearful, to believing devoutly in the war against evil that John is fighting,
