Fall TV Winners & Losers: From Good Doctors (and Places) to a Bleak Today
As your favorite shows head into the holiday break and TV hits the “pause” button, it’s time to call out the fall season’s winners and losers.

Among the freshman class, a pair of boy geniuses — young Sheldon Cooper and that very good doctor, Shaun Murphy — have much to celebrate, while ABC’s Ten Days lasted all of four nights before getting benched. Of TV’s returning shows, things at Grey Sloan Memorial and in Riverdale, USA are positively hopping, while the once-venerable Walking Dead is lurching into somnambulist mode.

Interview: Lar Park Lincoln Reflects on Friday The 13th Part VII – The New Blood and Freddy’S Nightmares

  • DailyDead
This past weekend I traveled up to the Northeast United States to check out Salem Horror Fest, a brand new horror festival whose mission is “to examine the themes of Fear and the American Experience within the horror genre.” With programming from September 21st–October 15th, Salem Horror Fest has featured film screenings and various live shows that examine horror in the context of significant American issues including race, gender, and sexuality. It looks to be having a hell of an inaugural year and based on my experience, I’d be very surprised if it didn’t come back again next year.

At the “Women with Guts” event on Saturday, we sat down for a screening of Friday the 13th Part VII – The New Blood (you might be aware that I’m rather fond of this film) and afterwards, I was lucky enough to sit down for a conversation with

New Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Weird Trailer Is Mind-Melting Insanity

New Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Weird Trailer Is Mind-Melting Insanity
Back in late February, Marvel released the third Guardians of the Galaxy 2 trailer, which debuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live and was quite well-received by the legions of growing fans. Over the weekend, YouTuber Aldo Jones debuted the latest in his "Weird Trailers" series, which pokes fun at the franchise by editing in a number of bizarre effects, along with characters that have no reason to be in a Guardians story, such as those from Disney's Inside Out, Warner Bros.' Suicide Squad and even the dancing Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) from a much-maligned scene in Spider-Man 3. There is even a reference to a recent sketch from Saturday Night Live, featuring Peter Dinklage.

Aldo Jones debuted this trailer on his YouTube channel over the weekend, which takes all of the footage from the third Guardians 2 trailer and simply makes it much weirder. The opening of the trailer, where Star-Lord

An Open Letter to President Trump: Watch Some Iranian Movies, They’re Good For You

An Open Letter to President Trump: Watch Some Iranian Movies, They’re Good For You
Dear President Trump,

On a recent Saturday, as you were watching your first movie in the White House, an unprecedented wave of protests swept across the country in opposition to your decision to impose a ban on visitors from seven predominantly Muslim nations.

I am not going to focus on the striking irony of foreign travelers being detained in the U.S. airports as you were enjoying Pixar’s “Finding Dory,” the story of a migrant fish detained in this country and aided by aquatic friends of different colors to find her parents.

Instead, I would like to bring to your attention an event of a smaller scale that was eclipsed by the news of the national uproar over your travel ban: the limited opening of an Iranian film, “The Salesman,” inspired by an American play to rave reviews and strong box office numbers.

Of course, there’s nothing wrong

The Politics of Funny: Comedians Grapple with Their Approach After The Gloom of Trump’s Inauguration
Journalists aren’t the only ones struggling with how to approach the Donald Trump administration. Comedians also find themselves debating their role in a world that seems more frightening and irrational by the day.

Fight truth to power? Call out the hypocrisy? Or have fun with the absurdity and serve as a respite to the headlines?

“It’s hard to do comedy when what’s happening is so weird, and what’s happening just keeps coming at you,” said producer Judd Apatow. “It’s such a frantic pace. We’ve really passed the point where daily events would be logical if I was writing a movie. Everything in this is now weirder than the movie ‘Network.’ And so it’s hard to be funny. You could talk about what you’re frustrated about, but life has gotten very scary and absurd. It’s a whole new ball game.”

Coming Distractions: Eli Roth unveils teaser for horror movie in space, unclear if he’s serious

I can’t keep this quiet any longer! Super secret no more. Mission: Fear is coming soon! pic.twitter.com/0gVgj2HEAx

Eli Roth (@eliroth) August 2, 2016

So there are a few question marks about this teaser trailer Eli Roth just unveiled on Twitter for a surprise new horror movie set in space that he’s made (is making?). While the idea of a new scary movie set in outer space is great—it’s a pretty small subgenre of horror, despite the long shadow that Alien has cast over the years—a few things make us suspicious.

First of all, that name. Mission: Fear? That sounds like the title of a Saturday Night Live parody of an interstellar thriller, possibly starring Jon Lovitz’s Master Thespian. HIs horror movies have always had a healthy dose of humor, but that title makes the whole enterprise sound like a laugh. Secondly ...

The Decline of Western Civilization, + Part II The Metal Years

The formidable Penelope Spheeris penetrates L.A.'s punk and glam rock scenes, connecting with surly malcontents that would greet a normal docu with flipped fingers and snarled four-letter words. The result is much more than a collection of rare music performances. Things are as loud, as profane and as twisted as ever.   The Decline of Western Civilization + The Decline of Western Civilization Part II The Metal Years Blu-ray Shout! Factory Color Street Date March 4, 2016 Sold separately 19.98 Written and Directed by Penelope Spheeris

Reviewed by Glenn Erickson

Unless my memory is completely fried, I remember Penelope Spheeris as a busy Ta in the film department at UCLA around 1974-'75. The upstairs editing area had but one pay telephone, and she was on it constantly, making deals. The active and connected Ms. Spheeris was even then something of a celebrity around the department. Years later her connections with various L.A.

Donald Trump Will Host 'Saturday Night Live' in November

Donald Trump Will Host 'Saturday Night Live' in November
Presidential hopeful Donald Trump will return to studio 8H as host for Saturday Night Live on November 7. Trump previously hosted SNL on April 3, 2004. Returning for her second musical guest appearance, Sia's forthcoming album "This Is Acting" features her new single "Alive." Her last album, the gold certified "1000 Forms Of Fear" reached Number One on the charts and featured four-time Grammy nominated single "Chandelier."

The news may come as a surprise, since NBC famously "fired" Donald Trump earlier this year, after the Republican Presidential candidate made derogatory remarks about immigrants. The network ended their business relationship, pulling the plug on Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants that were part of a joint venture between the network and Trump. The Miss USA pageant aired on the independent Reelz Channel back in July.

Donald Trump also let NBC know that he would not be back to host Celebrity Apprentice, so he could focus on his Presidential campaign.

Inside John Belushi's Long Lost Punk Song With Fear

Inside John Belushi's Long Lost Punk Song With Fear
For years, Lee Ving, the vocalist and leader of impish punk bruisers Fear, has been teasing the release of a song the group recorded with John Belushi in 1981. He's finally putting out the tune — the appropriately snotty-sounding "Neighbors," which was supposed to accompany the Belushi movie of the same name — digitally on Halloween and as a special seven-inch in November. But even before the decades-long wait for its release, the origins of the recording were steeped in strife.

Disney Pixar's 'Inside/Out' coming to Blu-ray Nov. 3

  • Cinelinx
Disney Pixar's Inside Out is coming to Blu-ray and DVD on November 3!

Disney-Pixar's smash hit Inside Out is coming home on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere October 13th and on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray Combo Pack and On-Demand November 3rd! It will include an extensive line-up of bonus features including deleted scenes, including the theatrical short film Lava, “Paths to Pixar: The Women of Inside Out,” and the all-new animated short “Riley’s First Date?”

Inside Out takes an exciting and hilarious journey into the mind to find the answer. Based in Headquarters, the control center of 11-year-old Riley’s mind, five emotions are hard at work, led by lighthearted optimist Joy. She strives to make sure Riley stays happy as she operates alongside fellow emotions Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness.

The cast includes Amy Poehler (“Freebirds,” TV’s “Parks and Recreation”) as Joy; Bill Hader (Monsters University,

Bill Hader: ‘I’m a fraud, I really shouldn’t be here’

He has voiced a peanut in a TV ad and stars as Fear in Inside Out, as well as hosting Saturday Night Live. But, he says, he thought he’d blown it when he auditioned to co-star in Trainwreck with Amy Schumer

Bill Hader, Saturday Night Live’s erstwhile Man of a Thousand Faces, sits on a couch in a Los Angeles hotel suite wearing the one face we’re least familiar with: his own.

Said face is, to borrow a phrase Ricky Gervais used to describe Steve Carell, “nearly handsome”, meaning nice enough to gaze on in repose, but in motion possessed of all the rolling contours that make for comedy gold. Add a Belushi-esque repertoire of eyebrow moves, a leering smile and a voice that can switch from nasal whine to purring baritone in a heartbeat, and you have the perfect launchpad for the dozens of impersonations and

Amy Poehler and Pete Docter discuss ‘Inside Out’

The director, producer and star literally play with our emotions in Pixar’s latest adventure, Inside Out.

Pixar Animations Studio has introduced audiences to a number of cinematic treasures over the years including Wall-e (2008), Finding Nemo (2003) and the beloved Toy Story Trilogy (1995-2010). It is safe to say that their latest creation, Inside Out from director Pete Docter, is an impressive addition to the Pixar canon.

Inside the mind of 11-year-old Riley live five emotions: Joy, Sadness, Anger, Disgust, and Fear. All emotions work together to make sure that Riley is feeling the right sentiments, reactions, and feelings. However, Joy works the hardest to make sure that Riley is happy as much as possible, keeping Sadness away from the controls. Joy’s task becomes harder when Riley’s parents decide to move from Minnesota to San Francisco turning Riley’s life upside down.

Inside Out is directed by animator, screenwriter and Oscar-winning filmmaker Pete Docter,

Interview: Penelope Spheeris Talks Her Seminal Punk & Metal Documentaries ‘The Decline of Western Civilization’

Fans of '70s punk and '80s heavy metal have long held Penelope Spheeris' "The Decline of Western Civilization" movies as sacred texts. The first ‘Decline,’ released in 1981, is a vital document of the Los Angles punk scene, with performances by X, the Germs, the Circle Jerks, Fear and Black Flag. The music in ‘Part II: The Metal Years’ is less enduring, but the portrait of striving metalheads bent on success has a striking poignancy: You may not remember W.A.S.P.'s Spandex-clad hair metal, but you'll never forget Spheeris' interview with guitarist Chris Holmes, who floats drunkenly in a pool and douses himself in vodka while his elderly mother looks on blankly from the sidelines. The previously rare ‘Decline III’ takes that anthropological approach to the next level, focusing on L.A. gutter punks who beg for change by day and rock out by night.

“Nikki Sixx Told Me He Didn’t Like It When I Called Him a 40-Year Old Heroin Addict”: Penelope Spheeris and Anna Fox on The Decline of Western Civilization

A holy grail for both cinephiles and rock and roll enthusiasts finally arrives on DVD this week in the form of Shout Factory’s superbly assembled The Decline of Western Civilization boxed set. The first two Decline films are essential artifacts of the late ’70s punk rock movement and the ’80s metal scene in Los Angeles; the third, made in the ’90s, is a sober chronicle of Hollywood’s gutter punks, homeless kids tossed aside by “polite” society. All three movies contain terrific concert footage of seminal punk and metal bands (including Fear, the Circle Jerks, and Faster Pussycat, among many others) […]
