Bad Weekend: The Last 15 Memorial Day Movies Ranked from Worst to Best

Memorial Day weekend is supposed to be synonymous with quality. It developed that reputation in the 80s by nabbing films such as Star Wars, Return of the Jedi, Rocky III, and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, but overall it’s actually a pretty awful weekend when it comes to quality films. For every Themla and Louise there’s a Hudson Hawk, Crocodile Dundee II, and Super Mario Bros. Nevertheless, studios bank on the long weekend to boost box office on blockbusters, and it’s been that way for decades. With that in mind, I’ve gone over the …

Bronco McLoughlin obituary

Stunt performer who appeared in films including The Mission, Total Recall and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

Bronco McLoughlin, who has died aged 80, was the stunt performer seen in one of the most powerful cinematic opening sequences of the past half century. He played the Jesuit priest strapped to a giant crucifix who careers over a waterfall to his death at the start of The Mission (1986), the director Roland Joffé’s epic about 18th-century Spanish Jesuits protecting a South American tribe from Portuguese colonialists seeking slaves.

McLoughlin floated along the rapids until he disappeared over the top of Iguazú Falls, on the border of Brazil and Argentina – by which time a lifelike dummy made by Madame Tussauds had replaced him on the cross. The breathtaking scene – featured on publicity posters – was heightened by Chris Menges’s Oscar-winning photography.

‘Karate Kid’: Ralph Macchio Waxes On About “Soulful Magic” Of 1984 (And ‘Cobra Kai’ Reunion)

  • Deadline
Here’s a real kick in the head: It’s been 35 years since Columbia Studios released The Karate Kid. Fathom Events is marking the anniversary by bringing the 1984 classic back to the big screen Sunday and this Tuesday at more than 600 theaters nationwide. The special screenings are more than memory-lane matinees, they will be accompanied by a Season 2 preview of Cobra Kai, the acclaimed YouTube hit series (50 million views) that rekindles the Reagan Era rivalry between Daniel Larusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) and pulls a second generation into the All Valley Championships grudge match.

The Cobra Kai success has been a pleasant surprise for Macchio, now 57, but then again role of Daniel Larusso has never really faded from his day-to-day life. Asked, for instance, how often fans approach him and reenact Larusso’s fighting stance — the loose-limbed, one-legged “crane kick” pose — Macchio estimated that it might be

He and wife Katharine Ross stayed to save their house by pouring water on it. “But we have no power. This all seems very surreal.” He knows many others who did lose their homes.

What It’s Really Like to Work for Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall
From their starts as lowly showbiz assistants, this year’s Irving G. Thalberg recipients Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall have helped bring an impressive array of films to life. Together and separately, they have worked on movies from “The Last Picture Show” (Marshall) and “Raiders of the Lost Ark” (both) to the upcoming “Star Wars: Episode IX” (Kennedy), with the likes of Steven Spielberg, Harrison Ford and George Lucas.

Their films have raked in billions, earning the pair 13 Oscar noms between them.

But what’s it like to work for Kennedy and Marshall, married since 1987? Ask some of their famous collaborators — Ford, Matt Damon, Laura Dern and Lucas included — and a theme emerges.

They say the producers have come to the rescue of their productions almost as often as the heroes in their movies for Amblin Entertainment, founded with Spielberg in 1981, the Kennedy/Marshall Co. a decade later, and mostly

Steven Yeun Looks Back at ‘The Walking Dead’ Originally Dressing Glenn as an Asian Stereotype
Steven Yeun is currently making the press rounds for Lee Chang-dong’s “Burning,” in which he gives a searing supporting performance that demands Oscar attention, and he recently joined Entertainment Weekly for a candid conversation about his history as a Korean-American actor. Yeun got his breakout role in the states playing Glenn on AMC’s blockbuster series “The Walking Dead,” and the actor revealed the show originally intended to dress the character based on Asian stereotypes.

“I look at things like Glenn, and I’m still grateful that I actually got a chance to make him human, because if we’re gonna be honest…In the beginning, the first couple episodes, Glenn was human, but he was also very expected,” Yeun said. “There’s a reason why the first costume designer had me wear Short Round clothes, you know? That’s not maybe on purpose because she was like, ‘I

Alleged Star Wars: Episode IX Leak Teases The Return Of The Hutts

So long as official details remain scant on Star Wars: Episode IX, you can bet that the most fervent corners of the internet will be abuzz with rumors and speculation.

Take this recent leak from 4Lom, an anonymous Reddit user and alleged acquaintance of someone working at Lucasfilm, for instance. Detailing a scene that features some of the few surviving rebels from the end of The Last Jedi – as well as the shifty codebreaker DJ – it likely goes without saying that all claims ought to be read with a degree of healthy skepticism.

Apparently, though, our heroes Finn, Poe Dameron and Rose Tico will meet up with the Hutt Cartel, now being run by Jabba the Hutt’s son, Rotta. DJ, as per his shady character, is somehow involved with the Hutts, and while Finn and Rose are naturally averse to any further associations with the man, Poe regards the
