The Poltergeist Scene That Legitimately Spooked The Cast

Don't get me wrong. It sounds absolutely thrilling to be haunted by a ghost. But if it's the ghost in the 1982 film "Poltergeist," I'll take a quick pass on being haunted by them. I mean, it's a poltergeist, which is arguably more upsetting than your average "walk through walls" spooky spirit. Poltergeists throw things and try to physically harm you, and if you're sweet little Carol Anne Freeling, literally suck you into another dimension from which you may never return. I'm not messing around w...

Power Comes Back On Slowly in Parts of Placer County Impacting Seniors

COLFAX (CBS13) — “They have a warming center, but I’m disabled and can’t get there,” said Diane Swendner. After nearly five days without power, Swendner decided to stick it out. “The power came on last night for just a little while and then went right back off,” she said. So she hunkered down again. “In bed [is] the only warm place with lots of warm covers and my blanket from Minnesota that’s from a wool mill,” she said. She couldn’t get to her car to charge her phone because it was piled high w...

Doctor Who: Flux Flubs The Finale In The Supremely Unsatisfying The Vanquishers

"Doctor Who: Flux" began with such promise. There was a newfound energy, a pep in the step of this serialized experiment that suggested that showrunner Chris Chibnall would be shaking things up after two mildly disappointing seasons. Heck, there were even a few jokes! But we all should've known as soon as the final episode, "The Vanquishers," started off with the time-honored tradition of Jodie Whittaker's Doctor spending a finale getting psychically blasted by a camp villain — Chibnall is back ...

Doctor Who: Flux Goes Around The World In Too Little Time In The Penultimate Survivors Of The Flux

The fifth and penultimate episode of "Doctor Who: Flux" feels like the closest to Marvel that "Doctor Who" has ever been — and that's not just because "Survivors of the Flux" throws around words like "multiverse" and gives UNIT an origin story ripped straight from the HYDRA infiltration of SHIELD (don't even get me started on the Division revelations and its parallels to "Loki"). It's because this fifth chapter of "Flux" feels like skimming through the pages of a comic book: alternately chaotic,...

Doctor Who: Flux Trips Up And Gets Trippy For Once, Upon A Time

For a show about time travel, I've sometimes thought that "Doctor Who" didn't get weird enough. Not weird in the way of kitchen-sink sci-fi that the show has become famous for — where else would you get a show where cat nuns experiment on diseased clones? — but weird in the way of playing with format and form. "Doctor Who" has done this a handful of times before, primarily in episodes written by the divisive former showrunner Steven Moffat, but for the most part it's settled in its place as a fa...

Weekend Cooking: A Trio of Books for Cooks

I’m beyond thrilled and honored to tell you I’ve been accepted once again to be part of the Abrams Dinner Party for this coming publishing year.

12 Horror Movie Scenes That Scared Actors In Real Life

Here's the truth: it's hard to be scared on a movie set, even a horror movie set. You're surrounded by crew members. Giant lights illuminate everything around you. Actors in monster make-up sip coffee, practical effects wizards prep blood pumps, and onscreen victims ask the director about their motivation. Everyone knows what they're doing and what they're making and they leave the whole "being scared" thing for the audience. But that's not always the case. Sometimes, a filmmaker surprises their...

Will There Be A Made For Love Season 2?

The original dark-comedy series for HBO Max, "Made For Love," is like taking an episode of "Black Mirror," splicing it with 2020's "The Invisible Man" and running it through a comedy filter. Based on Alissa Nutting's 2017 novel of the same name, "Made For Love" is about a woman named Hazel (Cristin Milioti) who escapes from an awful 10-year-long marriage to a tech billionaire named Byron (Billy Magnussen) and the virtual reality complex where they lived for a decade without ever leaving. After s...

The 10 Best Twin Peaks Episodes, Including Season 3

The wonderful and strange world of "Twin Peaks" has captivated television and cinema audiences for decades, leaving a lasting impact on serialized storytelling in television long after its original run. Co-created by film director David Lynch and novelist Mark Frost, "Twin Peaks" was led by Kyle MacLachlan as Special Agent Dale Cooper, who investigated the murder of a teenage girl named Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee).

The 15 Best John Cusack Movies Ranked

John Cusack is a fascinating movie star who has had many ups and downs throughout his multi-decade career. Alongside his sister Joan, Cusack launched his acting pursuits in the '80s and became renowned for his charisma and his emotional authenticity. The nervous, fast-talking energy that many stars try to emulate comes naturally to Cusack. After he delivered a memorable debut performance working alongside John Hughes in "Sixteen Candles," Cusack's talents became highly sought after by leading fi...

The 14 Greatest '80s Romantic Comedies Ranked

The 14 Greatest Thrillers Of The 21st Century

The thriller is one of the hardest genres to define, because thrillers cross over so much with other genres. From the erotic thriller, the psychological thriller, the cold war thriller, the detective thriller, and all the way through to the action thriller — and let's not forget to take a detour into the seedy underbelly of the neo-noir -- this really is the genre that has something for everyone. While the '80s and '90s were a heyday for erotic thrillers, the 21st century brought a fresh injecti...

SF Book Review – Part 38: The Long Winter and Moar

I’m still catching up with recent SF reading and I figure it’s best to get this out before the Six Weeks of Halloween revs up. This post covers stuff I read from June right up until last week, so we’re pretty much caught up.

Pandemic throws LA Opera some curve balls, but the show must go on

It has been a long intermission for L.A. Opera, fraught with unforeseen bumps in the road due to the Pandemic, but the beat goes on with this Saturday’s gala opening of Verdi’s hummable, old warhorse, ”Il Trovatore,” at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. The first glitch was the news that the ship from Monaco carrying the production’s scenery was embargoed on the ocean due to coronavirus-related delays. The L.A. Opera officials immediately connected with the European design team, and within hours, a...

Every Cameron Crowe Movie Ranked From Worst To Best

Cameron Crowe makes earnest movies. It's his biggest strength and his biggest weakness. Crowe works best when his obsessions align -- when there's the right music, when the romance overwhelms, and when his characters are thoroughly sketched. His films allow for moments of great sentimentality; when Crowe pulls it off, he makes you wonder how he stripped you of your vulnerabilities with a heartfelt speech or the perfect needle drop. When he doesn't, it creates an effect similar to that of watchin...

Essential Movies About High School You Need To See

We Need To Do Something Review: The Family That Stays Together Goes Insane Together

You don't need a huge budget or grand sets to make a good movie. With a little elbow grease, inventiveness, and clever writing, a filmmaker can turn the smallest movie into something grand. And it's with that spirit one approaches "We Need to Do Something," a horror film set almost entirely in one location. Horror films stuck in one locale can yield good to great results -- see "The Mist," "The Evil Dead," "Night of the Living Dead," and more. But the secret to success is to give us something to...

David Lynch's Feature Films Ranked From Worst To Best

David Lynch's movies are obsessed with the persistence and failure of identity, so it's not surprising that his 10 films are both like and unlike themselves. His movies circle around the same actors (Kyle MacLachlan, Laura Dern, Harry Dean Stanton), the same genres (noir, melodrama), the same themes (disability, sexual violence, infidelity, meta-film), and the same distinctively surreal, or hyper-real, absurdist visuals. But over his career Lynch has also continually pushed the boundaries of his...
