'Dancing With The Stars' Recap: Judges Give Low Scores For 'Switch-Up' Week

Dancing With the Stars returned Monday night with the highly anticipated and much dreaded Switch-Up week in which the celebrities had to dance with a new pro partner. Also throwing things off balance this week was the continued absence of Len Goodman, who was replaced at the judges’ table with British singer Jessie J.

Dancing With the Stars Recap

After Jessie J performed her hit “Bang Bang," Antonio Sabato Jr. danced a Bollywood routine with Allison Holker. The dance naturally had a lot of energy, and allowed Antonio to show the judges some personality. Unfortunately, despite the dance’s fun factor, Antonio and Allison didn’t have much chemistry together and were often not in sync throughout the routine. Score: 8+6+7+7=28.

Bethany Mota and Mark Ballas paired up this week to take on hip-hop. Mark tried to get Bethany, a YouTube celebrity, to bring the swag and attitude necessary for the dance style.

The Flamenco Trilogy – DVD Review

Consisting of 1981′s Bodas De Sangre (Blood Wedding), 1983′s Carmen and 1986′s El Amor Brujo (Love, The Magician) the Flamenco Trilogy from director Carlos Saura comprise a curious set. Linked by a common cast (Antonio Gades, Cristina Hoyos and Laura del Sol) and all of them shot with a deliberately stagey feel, they will doubtless appeal to fans of vigorous and passionate Spanish dancing but may struggle to find an audience outside of those admittedly narrow tramlines.

Blood Wedding begins with the cast of a dance production applying their make-up before they launch into an energetic rehearsal under the tutelage of Antonio Gades’ choreographer (who assisted with the choreography for the entire trilogy). The wedding of the title is spoiled by the bride running off with Gades’ Leonardo, who the groom must track down and confront. In the end, this is an impressive showcase for vibrant Latin dancing, but pretty

Sundance Film Festival Announces 2012 Competition Slate

I love the Sundance Film Festival. The winners of the fest normally have long legs enough to last all the way until the Oscars. This year, for example, "Pariah" was one of the breakout hits from Sundance, and the Dee Rees coming-of-age flick is being distributed by Focus this month. Its star, Adepero Oduye, recently received the Best Female Lead nomination from the Independent Spirit Awards.

So now, Sundance has unveiled its in-competition slate for 2012 and the films, as always, are quite intriguing. The fest runs from Jan. 19th to the 29th in Park City, Utah. Check out the full list below:

Competition Films For The 2012 Sundance Film Festival Announced

The Sundance Film Festival is the largest independent cinema festival in the United States. Held in January in Park City, Salt Lake City, the festival is a showcase for new work from American and international independent filmmakers. The Festival has changed over the decades from a low-profile venue for small-budget, independent creators from outside the Hollywood system to a media extravaganza for Hollywood celebrity actors, paparazzi, and luxury lounges set up by companies that are not affiliated with Sundance.

Now the festival is getting ready for the 2012 edition and today they announced the films competing in all categories.

Sundancers in 2012 will get the first crack at new movies from Antonio Campos ("Afterschool"), Kirby Dick ("This Film is Not Yet Rated"), Ira Sachs ("Forty Shades of Blue"), and Mark Webber ("Explicit Ills").

Aubrey Plaza and Mark Duplass star in "Safety Not Guaranteed" about "a trio of magazine employees investigating a

Competition Films For The 2012 Sundance Film Festival Announced

Snow is falling, the temperature is dropping, movies are getting better. Some might say it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas but I say it's beginning to look a lot like Sundance. The 2012 Sundance Film Festival announced its first batch of films Wednesday, all of which are in competition. Meaning these are the films eligible for awards. It also means that, as of right now, these are the films you probably haven't heard of. But, at this time last year [1], the competition films included a ton that you've surely now heard of such as Another Earth, Circumstance, Like Crazy, Martha Marcy May Marlene, Pariah, The Guard, Tyrannosaur and Take Shelter. Those were just the narratives. In last year's documentary competition, films like Beats, Rhymes and Life, Being Elmo, How to Die in Oregon, Page One, Knuckle, Project Nim and Senna all played. Basically, while you probably haven't heard of these movies yet,

Sundance Film Festival 2012 Competition Line-up Announced

  • The Film Stage
It seems like we are only just diving into the awards season, but the 2012 film year is right around the corner. There is no better place to get a tast of what is to come than Park City Utah in late January. We’ll be attending the fest again (read last year’s round-up) and today we have the first competition titles. This is the same group from last year which titles include Martha Marcy May Marlene, Like Crazy, Another Earth, Pariah, Being Elmo, Take Shelter and many more. Are there more great films to be found this year? I have no doubt the line-up below will include break-out titles, so lets get to it.

At first glance, the most notable film is Antonio CamposSimon Killer, who last directed Afterschool and is in the Martha Marcy trio. It is easily my most-anticipated from this group, along with Quentin Dupieux‘s Rubber follow-up Wrong.

2012 Sundance Film Festival Competition Titles Announced

The Sundance Institute revealed their Us and World Cinema Dramatic and Documentary competition titles today for the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. The question, of course, is which films will break out this year after the 2011 Sundance Film Festival brought titles such as ,i>Martha Marcy May Marlene, Pariah, Like Crazy and Take Shelter to the forefront. I have never attended the Sundance Film Festival, primarily because I have never heard good things about the experience, plus it means I can save my money for my trip to Cannes where I have typically seen the some of the best films Sundance had to offer including Blue Valentine two years ago and Martha Marcy May Marlene this year. Which means it serves as a good way for me to find films to make sure I add to my Cannes 2012 must see list... can you figure out which ones they may be? When it
