The Top Uses of Talking Heads Songs in Movies and TV

2 hours ago

Say whatever you want to about Talking Heads but they had a very different sound that was a little difficult to get into but was the kind of thing that grew on you after a while and after so many times of hearing it. They debuted in 1977 and were a very popular band for about fourteen years before they hung up their instruments. They had a couple of reunions in 1996 and 2002 but since then they’ve been pretty well shelved. That’s kind of too bad since they were pioneers in a time when music was still going through

10 Things You Didn’t Know about “I, Robot”

3 hours ago

I wouldn’t call I, Robot a dystopian film about some far flung, futuristic world where man and machine are at odds with one another because it’s not, at least not right away. I, Robot, is more or less a breakdown of the complex relationship between mankind and robots that goes into the prejudicial manner in which some human beings view robots and how that shapes their interactions with them. And to be honest it’s just one man’s prejudice, created by an accident that helped save his life, that really gets things going. Detective Spooner doesn’t trust the robots and so

The Top Five Bruno Kirby Movie Roles of His Career

6 hours ago

Bruno Kirby is a great supporting actor, but that’s about where his skill stops. He hit that ceiling a while ago and without any disrespect to the man that’s where the talent he has is at its best. Kirby is the kind of guy you rely on to be there to bolster the other actors up, someone that doesn’t so much make people look better but rather helps the picture to flow the way it should. He’s played some very influential characters but the fact remains that he’s still a pillar in pretty much any movie he plays, whether it’s

‘Justice League’ Could Lose as Much as $100 Million at the Box Office

8 hours ago

It’s hard to believe when taken at face value, but Justice League – the blockbuster superhero crossover that just landed a $94 million dollar opening weekend – is a financial failure.  Not just a failure, but one so titanic is scale that it stands an incredibly good chance of sinking the entire Dceu cinematic universe: the “big one” that finally pops the superhero bubble that’s been ballooning since the turn of the century. It wasn’t that long ago that a nearly $100 million dollar domestic opening was considered a momentous success for any studio lucky enough to find itself on

‘Justice League’ Is Proof that Not Every Superhero Movies Needs a Post-Credit Scene

9 hours ago

Looking back on the franchise’s unprecedented financial success, popularity and critical acclaim, the Marvel Cinematic Universe can be seen as the blueprint of the modern superhero movie.  From entwining individual franchises together into a cinematic universe (something attempted in nearly every genre these days) to its light, breezy tone, it has consistently proven to succeed where so many would-be rival franchises have failed time and time again. One of the most anticipated feature promoted in the McU – other than all of those Stan Lee cameos – is the post-credit scene: one final, short scene to end the movie with.

It’s difficult to know sometimes if Harry Connick Jr. is really a singer or an actor, or if he’s just as comfortable doing both since he’s pretty good in either venue. But the thing is  that he’s got a good voice, though it seems to be just on the edge of times of being not quite good enough to be considered superstar quality. Then he hits a certain note or sings a certain song and your opinion can change immediately. It’s the same way with his acting, some roles he’s great and can nail it without any issue. Other roles

10 Things You Didn’t Know about 80s Classic “Summer School”

11 hours ago

Summer School was an awesome movie. There, I’ve said it, it’s out and I don’t care who knows it. I mean come on, do you realize this stars Mark Harmon before the Gibbs era? He was actually a laid back, carefree guy in this movie and it was great. Plus, it actually stars a couple of other personalities you might recognize and has one of the absolute best gore scenes in a comedy that anyone has ever seen, period. No one likes to go to summer school unless they’re secretly an emotional masochist, but this film was just too great

A Few Cartoon Mashups You’ll Get a Kick out Of

12 hours ago

Cartoon mashups are something that a lot of people get a kick out of and are a lot of fun to watch when they do happen. They don’t seem to occur all that much anymore for some reason though. I can recall when the Jetsons and the Flintstones had a crossover and it was pretty funny. I know that G.I. Joe and the Transformers have had a crossover and that just became a giant mess. The only problem with crossovers and mashups is that essentially one or the other will have to assert some kind dominance and that means the

This is the situation highly acclaimed writer and producer Steve Lightfoot currently finds himself in. He is a decorated producer whose work on Hannibal earned him a significant amount of

It’s always interesting to find out what your favorite characters might look like as toys, this time we get to see how this affects the cast of Stranger Things. Chocotoy has only done these four characters but they’re the core group in the first season so it makes sense.

At this point we’ve seen numerous representations that have run the gamut from honest and truthful to just downright disturbing. This
