JoJo Siwa Leaps Her Way Into The History Books As Dancing With The Stars Runner-Up

At what many saw to be the peak of her career, teen icon JoJo Siwa did the unthinkable -- she came out as pansexual. With a fan base consisting almost exclusively of children, many thought JoJo Siwa's coming out would kill her career, but it only made her more powerful. This year, Siwa made history on the 30th season of "Dancing With The Stars," competing alongside professional dancer Jenna Johnson, making the duo the first partnership on the show to consist of dancers of the same gender identit...

The Scarface Controversy Explained

The Scarface Controversy Explained It's rare for iconic films to have achieved such status without some sort of controversy coloring their legacies. Such is the case with "Scarface," the 1983 crime drama starring legendary actor Al Pacino as the ruthless Tony Montana. The tale of the fictional Cuban immigrant turned violent drug lord has become culturally synonymous with the idea of obtaining the American Dream at all costs, revered by rappers, suburbanites, and edgy middle schoolers alike. Whil...

The Unexpected Origin Behind Jaws' Most Famous Line

Remember the scene in Steven Spielberg's "Jaws" where the locals catch a shark and think it's the same one that's been terrorizing their beaches? As they proudly (and ignorantly) mill around their catch trying to figure out what kind of shark it is, Matt Hooper helps them out by telling them, "It's a tiger shark!" Then comes what is arguably one of the best moments in the entirety of the film. "A whhhaaaaaattt?" the local fisherman says, channeling his best impression of a preppy, popular, senio...

Mark Hamill And Lena Headey Are Masters Of Acting In This Behind-The-Scenes Clip From Masters Of The Universe: Revelations Part 2

When the new continuation of "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" dropped on Netflix earlier this year in the form of "Masters of the Universe: Revelation," the series received critical praise, nostalgic joy, and fanboy outrage. But one thing that remained universal was the acclaim for actor Mark Hamill and his gleefully zealous performance as one of the most memorable cartoon supervillains of all time: Skeletor. Netflix seems keenly aware of this because they're putting the "Force Awakens" ...

House Of Gucci Review: Lady Gaga Does Her Best Dracula Voice In Ridley Scott's Wicked Satire Of The Rich And Clueless

It's Lifestyles of the Rich and Clueless in Ridley Scott's "House of Gucci," an odd duck of a film that wants to serve you both a scrumptious gourmet meal and greasy fast food in the same bite. There's a wobbly, unbalanced quality to the entire thing, as Scott and company try to make something akin to a prestige drama cosplaying as a trashy soap opera. And yet it's hard not to have fun with everything on display here — all the glitz, all the glam, all the bad accents. I have long had a sneaking ...

15 '80s Thrillers You Definitely Need To See

In his conversations with Francois Truffaut, Alfred Hitchcock defined suspense as a bomb under a table that only the audience sees, with a timer that only the audience knows about. "In these conditions this same innocuous conversation becomes fascinating because the public is participating in the scene," he said. "The audience is longing to warn the characters on the screen." That participation, a suspense by helpless omniscience, is what makes thrillers thrill. The 1980s were a banner age for k...

The 14 Best Moments In Ghostbusters: Afterlife

The funniest Twitter thread of the year wasn't just a merciless evisceration of how every blockbuster movie trailer feels the same -- it was a specific evisceration of "Ghostbusters: Afterlife," which has been sold to audiences as the "serious" counterpoint to 2016's "Ghostbusters: Answer the Call." And while watching Ghostbusters discourse become a haven for sexist trolls has been nothing short of head-spinning, there's zero question that the movies themselves get caught in the crossfire."Ghost...

Belfast Review – Branagh Manages Restraint When Most Forgivable

There are some films that have to be nearly perfect to be any good at all, and Kenneth Branagh has found himself on the wrong side of that fact a few times. Oddly, previous efforts have gone wrong because he seems overly close to them and they become, at best, rather pretentious. That’s odd because Belfast manages to avoid any such difficulty and it is literally about him. It’s the late ’60s in Belfast, and Buddy (Jude Hill) is nine and busy chasing other kids around with a wooden sword, mos...
