HBO Max's Harry Potter Quiz Show Will Be Hosted By Helen Mirren

That's kind of weird, right? However, if you think about it, everything about HBO's upcoming "Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses" feels more than a little off. When the quiz show was announced back in May 2021, we questioned its very existence, and things have only become stranger since then. There are, of course, the obvious issues, like the fact that it's hard to be a Harry Potter fan in a world where J.K. Rowling seems hellbent on driving everyone away from the series with her transp...

The 20 Best Kids Movies Of All Time

There's a common misconception that children's cinema, like children's television and children's literature, doesn't have to be good. Sure, kids may not be the most discerning consumers of media -- just ask any parent who has been forced to watch "Caillou" ad nauseum. But although they don't have as much experience as moviegoers, and they might not necessarily be able to articulate why a film is good or bad, children certainly know when they see something that provokes an emotional response. And...

Sometime you don't even notice the score in the background of a film, and that's powerful too. There's a reason that a lot of people like listening to film scores while working. It'...

Daniel Radcliffe on ending up relatively OK, unlike many child stars

Conan O'Brien recently interviewed Daniel "Harry Potter" Radcliffe, who has turned out OK despite being the ultimate mass-culture child star.

We let them into our living rooms, and let them tell us about the parts of our world -- or, sometimes, a make-believe one ---that we may not get to see for ourselves.The entertainment...
