Matthew Modine Running For SAG-AFTRA Presidency On Membership First Slate

Matthew Modine Running For SAG-AFTRA Presidency On Membership First Slate
Exclusive: Matthew Modine has thrown his hat into the ring as a candidate for president of SAG-AFTRA. Modine, a member of the union’s local and national boards of directors, is running at the top of the Membership First ticket, the self-styled progressive wing of the union that promises more democracy and transparency — which the union’s loyal opposition says is in short supply. He seeks to unseat Gabrielle Carteris, who’s been president of the union since 2016.

“As a current national and local board member of SAG-aftra, it would be my honor to represent all 160,000 members of the union I have proudly been a member of for nearly four decades,” he said in a statement. “It is my privilege to stand up for our legacy in order to safeguard our future. There comes a time when we must work to ensure that current and future membership will

Oscar Flashback: Best Original Songs of the mid-to-late 1980s, including ‘Take My Breath Away,’ ‘Let the River Run’

Oscar Flashback: Best Original Songs of the mid-to-late 1980s, including ‘Take My Breath Away,’ ‘Let the River Run’
This article marks Part 18 of the Gold Derby series analyzing 84 years of Best Original Song at the Oscars. Join us as we look back at the timeless tunes recognized in this category, the results of each race and the overall rankings of the winners.

The 1985 Oscar nominees in Best Original Song were:

“The Power of Love” from “Back to the Future

“Surprise, Surprise” from “A Chorus Line

“Miss Celie’s Blues (Sister)” from “The Color Purple

“Say You, Say Me” from “White Nights

Separate Lives” from “White Nights

Won: “Say You, Say Me” from “White Nights

Should’ve won: “Separate Lives” from “White Nights

If 1984 is a merely frustrating year of Best Original Song at the Oscars – given the lack of “Purple Rain” love and Stevie Wonder having defeated four marvelous songs with a decidedly inferior track – 1985 is a flat-out aggravating affair, a year featuring not one or two but five ho-hom pieces,

Review: Clutch Serve Up More Raucous Good-Time Rock on ‘Book of Bad Decisions’

Review: Clutch Serve Up More Raucous Good-Time Rock on ‘Book of Bad Decisions’
Producing Clutch is an “ain’t broke, don’t fix it “proposition. Over the past quarter century, these Maryland road dogs have gradually honed a sturdy, compact sound that’s immune to drastic change: bluesy, riff-centric hard rock with hints of psychedelia and punk, topped off by the gravelly roar of wildly charismatic frontman Neil Fallon. So it’s fitting that the band’s first-time meet-up with A-list Nashville producer Vance Powell (who has worked with everyone from Jack White to LeAnn Rimes, and won a Grammy for engineering and

The Top Five Linda Fiorentino Movie Roles of Her Career

Linda Fiorentino is a decent to great actress depending on what part she’s cast in and what her dialogue is like. She’s been great in those roles that allow her to expand on her character and make it her own, and of course anything that lets her be sassy and smart-mouthed is a plus since she does it so well. Despite glowing reviews of most of her roles Linda’s career has been kind of spotty since she was first noticed in Vision Quest, and she’s been seen now and again rather than all the time. One plus to this however

Pox Populi

Yayoi Kusama David Zwirner Gallery, NYC Thru December 16th, 2017

Spots are a disease -- a "Pop Art" pox; a sign of madness, an hallucination. As Tony Hancock says in his brilliant comic movie The Rebel (1961) where he plays a modern artist: "I get the spots before my eyes, the red mist, and I'm off."

Yayoi Kusama is off again at David Zwirner Gallery on 533 West 19th Street in Chelsea. You will have to queue around the block to see her new installations. But you can just walk into a room on 19th street and see 66 of her new paintings. This is a review of the work in that room.

Paranoia is lonely, ironically the sense you have of being watched belies the fact that no one's taking any notice at all. The putting on of spots was an act, for Kusama, of "field" being used to cover neurosis. Kusama's paintings

Vision Quest: Of Course Brian Shute Wasn’t Really 168 Lbs

Do you recall the movie Vision Quest? Well it turns out that Brian Shute wasn’t 168 in the movie, he was more like 189. The actor that portrayed the state wrestling champ was Frank Jasper and he was a monster of a man when he was selected for this role. He was working as an athletic trainer at Eastern Washington University when a wrestler he’d been helping out mentioned that he was an extra for Vision Quest, and that they were looking for a person six feet tall and who knew how to wrestle. Jasper thought it might be

New Flash Season 4 To Bring Back Dangerous Peek-a-Boo Teleporter, New Details
According to a recent report from Cinemablend, The Flash season 4 crew has gone and rehired actress Britne Oldford to come back and reprise her role as villain Shawna "Peek-a-Boo" Baez (above)! It’s believed that she will once again cause some major problems for Team Flash. The last time we saw her in action was way back in the 12th episode of the very first season which was labeled, “Crazy For You." Barry aka The Flash was eventually able to put her madness to an end by taking out all the lights in the city which halted her teleportation abilities. From there, she was imprisoned within the power-muting pipeline with all the other villains. However, in episode 22 of that same season, it was revealed that Peek-a-Boo was set free after characters Leonard Snart and Lisa Snart attacked the truck that was hauling the meta-villains away from S.T.A.R.

47 Meters Down: Roundtable With Actors Matthew Modine & Yani Gellman

What would you do if you were trapped in a cage deep into the ocean, surrounded by a handful of great white sharks? It’s a terrifying prospect, and ever since Jaws hit theaters back in the ‘70s, moviegoers have been fascinating with the danger surrounding sharks.

In the film 47 Meters Down, we see two women get trapped in such a circumstance. Will they stay calm, collected, and find a way out of this mess, or will they succumb to the forces of the sea? That remains to be seen.

Recently, Lrm had the opportunity to attend a press junket, and while there, we had the opportunity to attend a roundtable with several other outlets, and speak with co-stars of the film Matthew Modine and Yani Gellman, who play the characters Captain Taylor and Louis, respectively. Throughout they interview, they discuss the filmmaking process, the experience in shooting on location,

Great Uses of Songs in Movies: Journey’s “Only the Young” in “Vision Quest”

I’ve already been very clear about how strongly I feel about the movie Vision Quest. It’s one of my favorite movies of all-time and should be on anyone’s list who hasn’t seen it yet. The movie not only contains one of my favorite motivational scenes in any film (the “it ain’t the six minutes, it’s what happens in that six minutes” scene), an appearance by Madonna, one of my top five favorite uses of a song in any movie (Lunatic Fringe by Red Rider) but it’s also got one of the best sports movie villains as well as an appearance
